Birthday Pranks: Tween’s Bedroom

6 Jun

What is a Tween’s Bedroom you may ask? You know, tons of Bop and Tiger Beat posters on the walls, hot pink everything, zebra print, and OMG totally BFF type stuff.

This is a Tween’s Dream (and our bosses office for the day)!

Our boss is a pretty big Justin Timberlake fan (I mean who isn’t?). He also is a big fan of music in general so we opted to take this fact about him and have some fun with it. We knew we had to top or at least match the Bathroom Cubicle so we had to go big. We started collecting items that reminded us of a 12-year-old’s bedroom. This meant Bop and Tiger Beat magazines (which made me feel super old because I had no clue who these people were), blankets, pillows, lamps, etc. As soon as he left the office the day before his birthday, we got to work. There were 3 of us working on it since it’s a pretty big space and he has a ton of things hanging up around his office.

Again, with any prank, there is a point where it can be good or you can take it to the next level and make it awesome. To do this, we knew we had to cover every inch of wall space with posters, however, that would take a lot of posters. We found hot pink wrapping paper for a $1 each and went with that as “wallpaper”. To make it feel more like a bedroom, I brought in my crib mattress and we set it on some pallets. Our co-worker brought in her teenage daughter’s bedding and voila! We have a bed.

Thanks to some friends of ours, we were able to get our hands on a Justin and Bruno cutout and some Nsync Swag.

Complete this prank with some good ole boy band music playing when they walk in and you have yourself a party!

I must say, we were pretty damn proud of ourselves with this one. It was such a happy room and pretty sure he didn’t seem this coming 🙂

Birthday Pranks: Bathroom Cubicle

27 May

Oh this is one of my favorites. We really took it up a notch with this prank. This was definitely more involved and isn’t the easiest to pull off if you don’t have the resources.

The Bathroom Cubicle. Sounds awesome, right? It’s because it is.

First things first. You need to hit up the Dollar Store and buy bathroom items. This means everything from necessities like Shampoo, Face Wash, Hand Soap to the “personal” items like butt cream, stool softener, and gas medicine. You also need to get other items like a bath mat, shower curtain, etc. If you have these things laying around the house, great! You will save money and time from having to return everything when you are done (shame shame).

We opted to go with a fun, kid like theme to make it more ridiculous. We lined up a toliet, sink, and floor tile with a partner of ours (this is where it helps to have resources) and started planning everything out.

When he left for work the day before his birthday, we swooped in and started taking everything down. Shortly after, the bathroom wall “tile” started going up. I will say, what made this prank over the top and legendary was the toilet, sink and floor tile. It really took it to another level. Also, pay attention to all the detail. We really thought everything through, down to putting a men’s restroom sign out in front of his desk.

Pretty sure Dan didn’t expect to walk in and see his desk transformed into a bathroom. Best part? He had to use the toilet as his computer chair for the day 🙂

We even had his hometown newspaper sent in for some reading material 🙂

If you can do this prank and pull it off right then I highly recommend it!

Birthday Pranks: Lawn Signs

16 May

This prank is short and simple and has nothing to do with pranking at the office (although if you had some grass leading into work it would be pretty funny to do it there).

There are many companies out there that you can hire to put out lawn signs for a person’s birthday. In this case, we went with the princess and smiley face (inside joke) theme and put them in our bosses yard while he was on vacation. I imagine his reaction was pretty priceless when he pulled into his driveway at 11:30pm to see this.

This is a good prank if you are short and time and want someone else to do all the work!

Birthday Pranks: Cars

6 May

This is a 2-in-1 post here. Messing with someone’s car is always fun and why not do it on their birthday? To me, it’s always fun to use something about a person’s background or personality and go off that.

Take this car for example. Dan is from Wisconsin and worked on a dairy farm for a bit. This fun fact is the basis of on-going jokes about him and cows (immature? sure but it’s funny so who cares).

He used to drive this beat up black car that he loved so much. We decided to turn it into a cow, ya know… to make him feel more at home.

It was pretty funny to see his facial expression when it was time to leave for the day. Pretty sure he said something along the lines of “Ugh, is that a cow? Ughhh that’s a cow.” Yep Dan, it was a cow and you had to drive home like that 🙂

*****

Onto the next prank. This one was a little more complex. The boys snuck away in the morning, grabbed my keys out of my purse (how dare they right ladies?!) and drove my car into the building. Yep, right onto the concourse of the arena. Not only did they move my car to the 3rd floor of the arena, they decorated it with “diva” sayings and cutout of Marilyn Monroe with my face on it.

It gets better….how I came across it was even worse.

We walk by this spot on the way out to the garage so as we were leaving to go to lunch, this is what I saw coming off the stairs. Oh and like 20 people saying surprise and filming me. My reaction was something like “Are you f-ing serious? OMG, you guys moved my car up here?!?!”

Pretty legendary in my book!

You may not be able to drive your co-workers car into your place of business but I am sure you can find many things to do with his/her car!

Birthday Pranks: Aluminum Foil

23 Apr

This prank is similar to the Plastic Wrap, however, it’s still a fun one all on it’s own.

You will need a lot of aluminum foil for this one. This pranks works best if you don’t move anything on the person’s desk before hand. If it’s sitting on the desk, wrap it up!

Something hanging from the wall? Wrap that too!

My suit jacket? Yep!

It’s always a good time/nerve wracking walking into work on your birthday. I found aluminum foil for months after this prank 🙂

It’s just that simple!

Birthday Pranks: Cups

9 Apr

Last time we talked about birthday pranks, I showed you what we did with the plastic wrap. This time, I am talking about cups. This is a pretty straight forward prank and only takes a few cups (okay, maybe more than a few) and some water.

This prank works best if you have a closed or confined area. In this case, this office took over 2000 cups. Start in the back of the room/office and start laying out your cups. If you have other people helping you, it will go much faster. Start filling each cup up with a little bit of water. Keep going until you are at the doorway/front of the room.

The beauty of this prank is that the person can’t just come in and knock all the cups over to get to the desk. They have to take each cup one by one and dump out the water.

Beautiful, isn’t it?

Weekend Update with The Jenkinsons

5 May

As usual, we jam packed this week with lots of plans, activities, etc. I swear I need to stop doing that so we can just stop and relax but as I am typing this… I am laughing because how do you do that with a busy busy 15 month old?!?! Which reminds me I have not done her 15 month post so I need to get on that before 16 months comes up on me (seriously time, slow down).

I am trying to introduce coloring to Kyler but she isn’t having it…. at school she colors and I get her Pablo Picaso  doodles sent home all the time…. but at home, nope… she would rather try and eat the crayons (of course giving me that grin like “I know I am not supposed to do this but I like to anyway.”

A reader reached out to me about Kyler’s first birthday invitation since she was doing a navy and orange nautical party for her son’s first birthday. Since I designed Kyler’s invitation, there really wasn’t a template that I could just send to her and I didn’t mind tinkering it to create something else super cute and fun so I offered to help. I think it came out super cute!

Wednesday was my 27th birthday! I get somewhat annoyed when young people say “I’m so old” but I can honestly say that I am really starting to feel that way… I know it’s not but 27 just sounds so much older than 26 to me. Silly, I know, but a feeling none the less. My birthday was AWESOME. My parent’s hooked me up with a little shopping trip (I was in desperate need), my co-worker aka Magic family rocked it, and of course my sweet hubby and doubly sweet daughter capped off the night with dinner and a yummy dessert.

My sweet Kyler Bug said Happy Birthday!

So did my pups ❤

Before I get into the antics at work…let me digress a minute. I am in a department of 3 (4 when we have an intern) and we are extremely close. We are highly inappropriate and like to laugh and joke around when we can. When it came time for Danny’s birthday back in February, we decided we needed to show his desk and car “some loving” and completely wrapped his desk with saran wrap and filled it with balloons. We also turned his car into a cow (he is from Wisconsin so it’s fitting). For Phil’s birthday, we hired a company to fill his yard up with funny signs and then covered his office floor with over 2000 cups of water. So needless to say, I knew I had it coming.

When I got to work Wednesday morning, my desk looked like this:

Every square inch was covered in aluminum foil. EVERYTHING I tell you.

Then, it gets worse…. as we were walking out to lunch, I came across this:

Yep, that is MY car parked INSIDE the Amway Center on the 3RD Floor. Boys were sneaky and got my keys and drove it up the ramp and into the freight elevator. Too funny.

When I walked up, I had some friends up there waiting on me…. pretty sure to see my reaction 🙂

Classic, right?

After that, we headed to get some yummy sushi and I heard all about how they pulled that off.

My sweet Kyler

That night, Chris, Kyler and I went to Outback for dinner and it was delicious.

Again, trying to color 🙂

After dinner, we went home, they sang Happy Birthday to me and we ate Red Velvet Cheesecake. This is the cake we had our wedding cake made after so it has special meaning to me 🙂 Chris is just so awesome ❤

Sushi, lunch cupcake, and Red Velvet Cheesecake!

In other news… Kyler has been killing it with the fork usage! She has really gotten that science down. Now a spoon? Not a chance.

I have been on the hunt (kind of sort of) for a big girl bed for Kyler. I love love love the Jenny Lind beds from Land of Nod but do not have or want to cough up almost $600 for a twin bed. Instead, I found this little gem on a Craigslist ad at a local resale store. I got the bed for $139 and feel like I got a good deal! We will be refinishing this into something special…. that post will be at a later date.

Peanut Butter face!!

Saturday night, we headed over to the Gilbertson’s for a little Cinco de Mayo party! All the necessities for a good time (The Jose is for us of course)

The girls of course had a great time…. I think there were 7 kiddos under the age of 4 there. My how parties have changed.

Twins again, and no, we did not plan this time either!

Story time!

The girls took a bath together and that was too cute 🙂

After the kiddos went to bed, we adults had some fun!

J bone!

Macko and Jenks!

Kendra and Jeremy:

Today, we went over to my friend/co-worker’s house to help him with a little DIY project. He just bought his first house and needed some help with it. Chris did most of the helping, I was just along to give my opinion and keep Kyler as entertained as possible.

Told you 🙂

Danny needed a headboard and wt work, we came across this cheap and masculine idea for a one:

headboard

His bedroom has all of these black shelves hanging up (bad picture):

Once I saw those, I knew we could just re-purpose them into a headboard! Just take them down and screw them back up! I believe all it cost Danny was a pack of drywall anchors and a can of black spray paint (to touch up the areas on the already painted black wood). Can’t beat that!

Looks great, doesn’t it?

I love doing home projects, decorating, DIY projects, crafty things, and party planning so this has been a fun week for me! I am always up to helping out and so if anyone is stumped on something or wants an opinion, I am free to ask! I am by no means an expert but I love this stuff if you can’t tell already 🙂

Andddd it’s time to go as this is most likely the LONGEST Weekend Update to date. Thanks for hanging in there and see ya next week 🙂
