what not to wear: boyfriend edition.

Since I last posted, this happened:

I cooked barbecue chicken pizza for Boyfriend…and he liked it. So naturally I have to document it.


1 1/2 boneless, skinless chicken breast, cooked and cubed
1-2 c. shredded Gouda (“Gouda, Gouda, Gouda, Gouda rockin’ everywhere,” per Boyfriend.)
Some cilantro (fresh if possible)
1 pre-baked pizza crust, thickness of your choosing (I opted for thin.)
Lots of barbecue sauce, preferably hickory-flavored (I used Sweet Baby Ray’s Hickory Sauce. No offense, Daddy [context: he makes salad dressing].)
It also called for red onion, but I passed. Blech.

The process in photos:

Chicken. Cook it. Then cube it.
Couldn’t find shredded Gouda. So got Gouda. And shredded it.
Okay, fine. My arm got tired, so Boyfriend shredded it.
Again, poor job of creating a photo tutorial. So: Mix chicken, cilantro, salt & peppa and BBQ in a sauce pan until heated through. Put mixture on top of crust and top with cheese. Bake. And voila!

What Puppy Preston did:

First, he laid in his perch atop the couch and looked uber cute. Which is surprising and completely out of the blue for him. Such strange behavior.
Then he slept, having the audacity to look uber cute again. So unlike him.

But onto the most important part of this post.

Today at work, I had the most unexpected surprise:

Boyfriend called me and asked if we could go shopping tonight.

Asked. To go shopping.

My boyfriend’s better than your boyfriend.

Anyway, it only made sense to do a before and after scenario. Because we realized just how horrible the before was. Sorry, Boyfriend.

Before. Hoo-hah.
Also, if you’re wondering, this is the ‘what not to wear’ part. As in, clothes that don’t fit.
During. Just look at those fitted slacks.
During, number two. We don’t mess around.

Ta-da! Look at that man. He’s even more attractive than he was before. Not an easy feat, mind you.

Ahem. Back off, ladies.

All in all, let’s just say: Slim-cut pants are much nicer for the buttocks area. Nice work, Men’s Warehouse – I do indeed like the way Boyfriend looks.

And one more thing:

Mama and I put a lot of energy into a pedicure attempt when she was here this past weekend* but as it turned out, it wasn’t in the cards for us. So Boyfriend, the darling that he is, went out and surprised me with this today:

A Mary Kay pamper-your-feet set!

Best. Boyfriend. Ever.

Told you mine was better than yours.

*Seriously, it was a colossal failure. After calling and visiting approx. four nail salons in the Broad Ripple area, we found ourselves at that one in the Three Wisemen strip mail (the one with Biscuits and every type of Asian cuisine restaurant), only to end up sitting in the massage chairs, our feet in lukewarm jacuzzi water, trying to ignore a blaring TruTV (one of those terrible “World’s Dumbest Criminals” or something shows) and feebly thumbing through 2007 editions of People. This just in: Britney Spears shaved her head.
