A HUNGER GAMES WEDDING EVEN I’D HAVE… Inspiration Winner #2, Miss Janna! | Plus, Bambino’s wedding attire is coming together…

Happy late afternoon + holiday weekend, friends and foes!  Bambino must realize it’s Easter, because he’s laying eggs all over the apartment.  Bambino you STINKA.  … Oh, does that piss you off, Bambino?  Are you offended?

Well GOOD, Dirty Harrybutt, because *I* am offended by your AAASSSSS.  Your ass is offending the living sheet out of me.  Shut the back door, I’m not kidding.  I’m gasping for air in here.

DIRTY HARRY BAMBINO:  ”I know what you’re thinking. ‘Did he fire six farts or only five?’ Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track, myself. But being as this is a .44 Fartnus, the most powerful fartgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you’ve got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?”

ME: Wow.  Ok, I’ll lay off.

ANYWAY!  Without further adieu, here’s the write-up from the lovely and very stylish, Janna, whose submission to our Hunger Games Reader Challenge was the other amazing winner!  Take it away, Janna…

I read all three Hunger Games books in five days. This clearly illustrates two things: 1. I loved these books and 2. I have absolutely no life. 

In book one, Katniss finds Peeta injured in the arena. He is hiding by the river, deep in the woods. Over the next week or so, Katniss nurses Peeta back to life in a cave along the river’s edge. This part of book one (which, spoiler alert, is given no where near enough attention in the movie) is one of my favorites because of how close the two become. 

When I began creating my inspiration board, I knew I wanted to focus on that time in the woods. I chose lush, green, earthy images. I purposefully chose decor and details that were beautiful, but simple. Katniss is strong and compassionate, but not the least bit opulent. A giant reception dripping in flowers would only make her uncomfortable.

I had so much fun putting this together. Loving this new series!!

By the way; yeah, he sits like that sometimes.  WEIRD, RIGHT?

So, as I was saying in the title, Bambino’s wedding attire is really starting to come together, don’t you think?  Mostly thanks to Marie (who you may know from her shop Emici Bridal) who so kindly gifted him his new prized possession yesterday.  I I mean we, WE, are very, very excited about it.

Which means… it’s happening, you guys, it’s really happening.  I’m really getting my very own Honey Boo Boo Child, and I couldn’t be more thrilled about what it means for my many crushed childhood dreams baby and his own, personal, childhood dreams, that he, has, of his own.

Yeah THAT.


1. what do you think of Janna’s stylish Hunger Games inspiration board??  Janna, I think it ROCKS THE CASBAH!  (cashbar?  cazzpah?  Casper?  and now it doesn’t even sound like a real word anymore, I hate when that happens.)

2. Do you have experience with puppy farts?  And their terroristic qualities?  Bambino’s *this close* to being added to the US No Fly list, they’re that bad.

XOXO!  whoaa sorry didn’t mean to put that in all caps.  - Alison

    btw, Bambo and i were sitting on the couch last night, him next to me facing away.  
    out of no where BOOM air gun blast out of his asshole onto my arm.
    surprisingly, no stink on my arm.

  2. Kirsten on April 6, 2012

    Have you made Bambino ashamed of his ding-a-ling? He appears to be hiding it!

  3. Dana on April 6, 2012

    This post is pure happiness. I can’t think of a better way to end my week, really.

    I love bambino mcpup! he looks so dapper :)

  4. Alison on April 6, 2012

    Honey – oh, was that your first time receiving one of his fart blasts? Lucky man. This is my LIFE, sweetheart.

    Kirsten – I hear all guys do that *tuck* thing, for fun. SIGH. Guys.

    Dana – and he, you. :)

  5. I really like weddings on April 6, 2012

    HAHAHA. Oh love The Honey’s comment. And Mr. Bambino’s bow tie. So fetch.

    Also digging The Hunger Games inspiration board!

    I am so glad that Bam (you) loves his bow as much as I had hoped he would! Big hugs to you and Bambino McPuppy Pants!

    This might be my favourite post yet… and I must admit it had nothing to do with the wedding! Bambino is officially the most awesome (if not a little stinky) puppers ever. Sometimes my dog would fart and then he’s sit up, startled, and look at his bum. Ridiculous. Never got old. Except for when we’d have to leave the room it was so bad.

    The bowtie is PERFECT for the wedding!!

    I love Bambino’s bow!! ahhh! He is awesome!

  9. Alex on April 6, 2012

    As someone with a pug, I completely understand the stinkyness!!! It’s truly out of control, and no one seems to understand…at least till they smell it…and then it doesn’t matter how cute the little guy is.

    PS, does Bam ever have those awkward farts that sneek out while running up stairs? Please tell me it’s not just a pug thing…??!!!

    I love it when the DOGS get up and leave because they think the stink is so bad. CLASSIC!

  11. Jill on April 7, 2012

    Love the bling Bambino!

  12. gigi on April 7, 2012

    OMG. I LOVE this Hunger Games wedding. It is soooooooo dreamy. Perfection. The table with the lights above it, nothing better.

  13. Lena on April 8, 2012

    I’m actually, truly dying over here–I can’t tell you how many times I called John in to look at/oogle Bambs. But I can tell you is that I now want a wedding of the pup variety more than ever. Here’s hoping Bambs’ digestion is under control by then, because I imagine that would be terribly embarrassing.

    And this Hunger Games inspiration is absolutely pitch perfect.

  14. Jo on April 8, 2012

    That puppy is so cute, very adorable. And that is a nice place for a wedding!

  15. Marilyn on April 9, 2012

    I LOVE Bambino! He reminds me of my puppy Barney (Boston Terrier/Pug) who sits like that too! He also farts BAD! Sometimes it scares him and he looks at his butt terrified haha

  16. what a cute idea!

  17. Burnett's Boards on April 9, 2012

    LOVE woodland weddings – adorable! And Hunger Games theme – even better :-D

  18. Janna (Sparkly Love) on April 16, 2012

    I’m not sure how I missed this post (actually I am because my life has been rather out of sorts the past few weeks) but I’m so excited to see it now!!!! Thanks :)

    Ps. Remy found a discarded loaf of white bread in the park over the weekend and ate nearly the whole loaf before Erik and I reached him and pulled him off the pile. The puppy farts were so horrible, I left him outside for most of the afternoon. I. Feel. Your. Pain.
