Dylan loved the University of Michigan. He had all of his old U of M memorabilia up around the apartment, subscribed to all of the university’s games and was a season-ticket holder for the school’s hockey team. So when you and he were both finally able to attend a Saturday game, he jumped at the chance to take you to his ‘old stomping grounds.’

You, on the other hand, attend Michigan State. Even though Dylan swears that you’re miserable at Michigan State and constantly tries to convince you to transfer (‘it’s a shorter drive to Detroit if you go to UMich!’), you’re steadfast in your belief that you’re a diehard Spartan. Needless to say, that means that you’re not all that thrilled that Dylan decides to take you to visit his alma mater. Sure, you’re excited that Dylan finds you important enough to show you this huge part of his life, but the rivalry between University of Michigan and Michigan State is so deeply ingrained into your mind that you just can’t get past the fact that you’re stepping onto the campus out of your own free will.

Cookie Dough Proposal - Dylan Larkin imagine

So it was a rainy day when I wrote this and I thought it’d be a cute proposal idea especially for girls who don’t like anything super flashy or showy. So enjoy!


I stood in our kitchen mixing the cookie dough. Dylan was in the living room playing Xbox with our dog laying around him. It had been raining all day in Michigan and it showed no signs of stopping as the sky grey darker and the rain came heavier. There was a crack of thunder and I jumped a little.

“Dylan!” I yelled nervous.

It was my first response when I got scared. When I was little I would yelled for my mom but now I had Dylan.

“It’s just thunder, babe.” He said from the couch.

Our dog walked into the kitchen and sat next to me. He looked up at me with a type of “don’t worry” look in his blue eyes.

“Well at least one man in this house will protect me from the storm.” I said loudly, making sure Dylan heard me.

I watched him pause his game before jogging into the kitchen. He smiled at me.

“No offense to him but I think I’ll be better at protecting you.” Dylan joked.

I smiled as I put the cookie dough balls on a baking sheet.

“You want help with that?” Dylan asked.

I shrugged.

“If you want, wouldn’t want to distract you from your Xbox game.” I teased him.

“You’re not going to distract me from my Xbox game.” He laughed as he walked around the counter.

“My Xbox game distracts me from you.” He added.

I shook my head at his comment as he bumped arms with me. We stood together putting the cookie dough on the baking sheet. He had control of the spoon as I used my hands to roll the dough in balls. I watched him take a big chunks of cookie dough from the bowl and eat it. He ate more of the dough than he was putting on the pan.

“Dylan!” I laughed.

He looked at me and smiled.

“What?” He laughed as his face turned red.

“You can’t eat all the dough! We won’t have any cookies.” I told him.

He shrugged.

“I mean they’re going to get eaten either way.” He said.

I shook my head and laughed a little bit. He put the first batch of cookies in the oven for me then his favorite song came on the iPhone in the kitchen.

“Ooh, I like this song.” He smiled.

He turned up the speaker and let the music fill our house. He winked at me as he danced like someone’s dad at a barbecue and I rolled my eyes at him. He made me laugh a little which his goofy moves but I loved watching him. He swayed his hips and eventually bumped into me a couple times.

“Come on, babe.” He smiled taking one of my hands.

“We need to finish this.” I said pointing to the unbaked cookies.

“Dance with me, babe.” He pleaded.

“What about the ones in the oven?” I questioned.

“If they burn, they’ll burn.” He smiled wrapping an arm around my waist.

I gave in and started to dance with him. We danced around the kitchen to his song, twirling and getting closer. When his song ended my favorite Etta James song came on. It was a slower song, so Dylan changed the pace.

“We could dance to this song at our wedding.” He said out of the blue.

I laughed a little at the idea.

“We’re not even engaged yet.” I reminded him.

He shrugged before spinning me around. My back was against his chest now as he wrapped his arms around me and we rocked side to side.

“We could be.” He said.

I smiled and leaned my head back on his shoulder. He kissed my cheek and I intertwined my hand with his that rested on my stomach.

“You want to?” I asked.

He nodded.

This wasn’t the first time we had talked about getting married, but I felt like this time he was actually going to propose.

“Do you?” He asked me.

I turned around and holding both his hands in mine now. I smiled at the idea.

“Is that a yes?” He asked again

“Yes, of course I do.” I replied.

He smiled and knelt down on one knee, grabbing some cookie dough off the counter as a pretend ring. I started laughing.

“(Y/N), will you marry me?” He asked seriously.

“Yes.” I said still laughing at my cookie dough “ring.”

He laughed with me now as he stood up.

“You want it?” He asked holding the cookie dough between us.

I shook my head.

“I’d prefer something less perishable.” I told him.

“We can go ring shopping later.” He said.

I nodded and stood on my toes to kiss him. I still couldn’t believe that Dylan just proposed in our kitchen with cookie dough. I couldn’t wait to tell everyone about it.


Bacon is currently available for adoption.

Our breeding plans have changed, so we have decided to offer her first here on tumblr!

Bacon is a 2014 KSB 66% het anery bred by Kai Justice of The Urban Herp. She weighs 195 grams and has been grown slow, as we intended her to be a breeder. When she gains another 100 grams (which could be by this summer) she will be ready to breed.

She is incredibly docile and is one of our only sandboas that has never attempted to bite us!

Bacon currently eats f/t unscented adult mice every 10 days. She is used to a large enclosure and utilizes all floor space and vertical climbing opportunities. 

We would prefer NOT to ship at this time. We would like to offer her for local pickup OR free delivery to Tinley Park this March, any Midwest Reptile Expo in Indianapolis, or Kalamazoo Reptile Show in Michigan. 

She is available for 100$.

If you are interested in adopting Bacon, send us a private message and we will get in touch.

I’ve been listening to RHCP’s “The Getaway” a ton lately and their song “Go Robot” is so catchy so here’s a GIF I made from that song! One line, with a pen.

Happy Tuesday \m/

Last night, the guys hit up the Soaring Eagle Casino in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan for a headline show and we have this cool photo courtesy of April Berry-Devers on Instagram from said show :) 

Anyone attend? Have any insight as to what their headline show is like?

Lead levels fall below federal limits in Flint, Michigan: state
Lead levels in Flint, Michigan's drinking water have receded below federal limits, state officials said on Tuesday, although they cautioned residents to continue using filtered water as work went on to replace the city's old lead pipes.

“Tests showed lead levels in the city’s drinking water were 12 parts per billion (PPB) between July and December, below the federal limit of 15 PPB, Michigan officials said in a statement.

Flint, a predominantly black city of 100,000, was under the control of a state-appointed emergency manager when it switched its water source from Lake Huron to the Flint River in April 2014. The more corrosive river water caused lead to leach from city pipes and go into the drinking water.

Lead can cause various health problems in children, and Flint’s contaminated water has prompted dozens of lawsuits and criminal charges against several former government officials.

Even with the test results, programs that provide water filters and related services will continue, Michigan Governor Rick Snyder said in the statement.

“This is not the end of our work in Flint, but it is one more step along the path toward Flint’s future,” said Snyder, a Republican who has been sharply criticized by Flint residents for his handling of the crisis”

Disturbing video shows police laughing and fist-bumping after beating a suspect

Video has emerged appearing to show Inkster, Michigan, police officers laughing and mocking the victim of a beating they had administered to an unarmed black man. The video captures officers in the police station as they exchanged fist bumps and laughs while the man they arrested sat a few feet away, bloodied and beaten. Thankfully, the cops may have to face the music.
