Ever wish you could live in the catalog pictures?

Do you Blog Hop? I do and often realize two hours later that I am 20 blogs from my starting point. On this Hop I found Thrifty Decor Chick which is a really great blog. I enjoyed her post about Catalog Envy and how unrealistic the pictures are for our real lives. But oh such fun to look at!

Thrifty Decor Chick (Sarah) found an amazingly funny blog called Catalog Living by Molly Erdman who is an actress, improviser and writer. This is Molly in a Sonic Commercial. Catalog Living is the story of a couple, Gary and Elaine, who live in the catalog pictures and it is beyond funny. Below are several of her photos with captions. Molly was kind enough to give me permission to show her material.

Light up the Sky

Gary hung the chandelier for me as a surprise. Why heavens no, I’ve never raised my head enough to see what it’s hanging from. Let’s just enjoy our limes under glass.

Keep Your Hobbies to Yourself

Gary, we were having such a lovely afternoon with the Andersons until you decided you just had to show off your string ball.

Hungry for More

After Elaine left the table with tears in her eyes, Gary knew he should have held back his comment that the starfish were a little chewy.

I'll never look at another catalog without thinking of Gary and Elaine!

I liked the blog hopping confession (we all do it!) and the introduction to this funny site.

I love that site. My sister sent me the link a couple of weeks before everyone in Blogland started linking to it. Hilarious stuff that will make you laugh out loud. :)

Blog hopping . . . yes, I'm guilty. It's amazing what's out there! Catalog Living - too funny!

I used to live in beautiful San Diego - hope your son enjoys the Old Globe - it has an amazing history!
