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: Plastic Wrap

12 Mar

This is a new mini-series for me. To give you some background, it started about 2 years ago and it started small. Lately, we have really been going all out and a few people have asked about the details (how did you do that, what did you do that with, etc) so I decided to write about it.

My department is made up of myself, 2 guys, and an intern. We are a very close-knit department (we call each other family) and we work hard but love to have a good time too. We are always messing with each other and giving each other a hard time so we decided “why not mess with each even more on our birthdays?” One of our first pranks was the “Plastic Wrap”.

This one is a classic but always a good time. They key to this prank is to make sure you cover every square inch of office/cubicle space with plastic wrap. I mean everything. Pens, notes, business cards, papers, push pins, keyboard, basically if it can be picked up, wrap it! This makes clean-up even harder (and if you are like us, we make the birthday person to all of the clean-up).

All in the details, people!

To take it to the next level, fill up the space with balloons. That way, when the birthday boy/girl walks up, they think THAT is the prank…. but we all know once those balloons tumble out, it will reveal what’s really happening in all it’s plasticy glory!

If you have someone willing, it’s pretty funny to have someone waiting in the balloons to scare them when they walk up.

Enjoy wrapping!

Weekend Update with The Jenkinsons

16 Feb

The week started off on a fun one. It was my friend’s birthday at work and we have a little tradition in our department…. to decorate/prank each other on our birthdays. This year, we decided to turn his cubicle into bathroom.

Happy Birthday buddy!

We had movie night with Monsters University and popcorn. 

My sweet babies

Snuggles with Bug

Ummm Hudson’s room may have been our storage room and this is what it looks like right now (minus the awesome plank wall which you will see later). I need to get on this. Stat.

Opening up her Valentine’s Day present

Chris and Kyler spoiled me for Valentine’s Day… can NOT wait for the prenatal massage.

This weekend we have been on Potty Training Bootcamp, aka the 3 day, never leave your house and your kid’s side, no more diapers, millions of accidents, etc. Not too many photos, because A) There is Zero time to do anything else than watch your child like a hawk and remind them every .2 seconds to “tell us when you need to potty” and B) don’t really want photos Kyler in her undies on the World Wide Web.

I did however think I was going to tackle going through Kyler’s old clothes (kept all of them because ya know, just in case #2 kid was a girl) and I am immediately regretting my decision. Holy. Clothes.

I am beyond exhausted from this weekend (not out of the thick of it yet… 3 day method for us is going into overtime) but thanks to Grandma, we get to keep trying. Good. Night.
