Living With 3 Boys…

“Boys will be boys” – Anne Frank

A question I seem to get asked a lot seems to be “What is it like living with 3 boys”. Just to clarify, I do not think I live with them. I think I am the house guest who never seems to leave. Back in July, Jamie moved in with his two friends, and I essentially just tag along. i am there whenever Jamie is. So essentially 4PM-7AM Monday-Friday plus all day weekends. I have been known to say I am kind of a Nomad, however, now I just say I have 2 homes..

However, “living” with 3 boys has definitely been an experience to say the least.. I am thinking it is probably best to let the pictures talk for the most part.


I woke up one night (1:00) to go to the washroom. I smelled something burning. Steve was in his room with the light on lying face down on his bed and it appeared like he was on his phone. I thought he probably knew his food was burning so I just continued on my way. I woke up at 8:00 the next morning and the smell was still there. I opened the door and it was completely hazy. Steve’s light was still on and he was in the same position as we was a 1:00. Yes, he fell asleep with fish in the oven. It baked at 350F for over 7 hours. It was so burnt we didn’t even know what it was until he woke up.


Sticking with food. Derrick made a cake once. It was huge. He took 3 large cakes and stacked them up with cherry pie filling in between each one. I didn’t have any but I heard it was amazing. I was so big they kept eating it until mold developed. They had to throw out a third.



Beer is always in stock.



Furniture is always a great use for practicing balance.


Hide and seek is always a good idea.


They also love video games. The hockey one in particular. They will even invite friends over to play. The first time it happened, Jamie announced they were going to have a ‘tourny’. He pulled out a white board and set it all up. To be honest, it wasn’t until an hour in I realized this was a video game ‘tourny’ and not a real one with real players.

Also during their hours of playing, they don’t talk. They grunt to each other. Somehow they get through hours of just grunting.. GRUNTING. Girls would have paused the game to discuss everything from fashion to cookies.



They have also mastered throwing things down 6 floors off the balcony for anyone who forgets their wallet.


It has been nothing but a lot of fun. Fun and laughter is in never short supply at 1001. Between the grunting, the beer, the food, and words/phrases which I am not comfortable posting, it is always a good time.

But for you ladies, just for the record. No one like the slutty girl. They may like it that night, but you will forever be talked about like the slutty girl. Have some self respect and make them work..


And for a little Tuesday morning laughter. I will leave you with this.


+ Do you live with boys?
+ What has your experience been?

  1. I love all the “practicing my balance” pics. Mike doesn’t do most of those things (I think it’s a living with other guys thing as opposed to just being a guy haha), but we DO always have a good supply of beer in the fridge. And I’m sure he wouldn’t be opposed to eating that cake (which is seriously epic)!

    • Haha they are definitely a handful. I Beer seems to be the water of life to men. Always need some, especially if friends are coming over! You both should have come. There was definitely more than enough to go around!

  2. hahahahahahahahahaha. omg first of all, that beer bong! that is what my dreams are made of! and from what i’ve heard about jamie and the other guys i feel like i would love them! i can’t wait to meet them all when i come to visit. i expect a welcome beer bong all set up and ready for me πŸ™‚

    • Oh Carrie, these boys are not going to want you to leave! You will do the beer bong with all of them and I will sip some wine? deal? I am such a wimp. I even feel like Smokey judges me for not liking beer. It is going to be on epic time when you come!!!

  3. This is like me when I stay at my brothers. It is a full on bachelor pad. Seriously sometimes it disgusts me but usually it’s just a lot of nonsense and fun. They are the reason I have mastered the beer bong! Gotta love a girl and a beer bong hahaha. This is just great. The pictures are perfect!

  4. I laughed ALL the way through this!!!!! I lived with 6 boys in France.. well, two in my apartment and the 4 upstairs who practically lived in our apartment! I absolutely loved it. Life was NEVER boring. One of them was always doing something ridiculous, and I got away with murder πŸ˜› I instigated an indoor snowball fight where I scooped all the snow from the window ledges into a huge bowl, ran upstairs and threw it at whoever opened the door – poor Colm wasn’t very impressed, but because it was dark he never saw who did it! All the guys protected me like a little sister too πŸ™‚ Ialso lived with one of my best guy friend’s for a year before – we joked about having Naked Tuesdays and the like, but he was probably my best housemate ever! Give me boys over girls to live with any day (says the girl who just moved into a house with 3 of her girl friends πŸ˜› ) Xxx

  5. Hahaha this post is amazing!! Hilarious. I particularly enjoy the balancing pictures and the beer bong! The only boy I’ve lived with is my brother, when my parents are away. And it’s pretty much like I live by myself considering he stays in his room all day playing video games…

    • Haha balancing takes a great deal of practice apparently. It kind of sounds like having a house to yourself kind of. I mean, if you never see the other person it is like you really are alone. Kind of nice.
