This Girl Replaced All Her Family's Photos With Perfect Replicas Starring Their Dog

It’s summer, and there isn’t much to do. As former children, we all know there’s only enough entertainment to keep you busy for the first few weeks of summer break. After that, it’s up to you to make some fun. Just take this Twitter user Marissa Hooper as an example.

The 21-year-old student decided to reshoot all the family photos that were on display around the house and replace all her family members with her dog, Dixie.

Marissa swapped out her older sister’s kindergarten yearbook photo, a vintage black-and-white picture of her grandmother, and her own graduation photo with hilarious recreations featuring Dixie.

Her mom, Kathryn, told BuzzFeed that it took a few weeks for her to notice that the photos were being replaced. “It was kind of embarrassing,” she said. Eventually, a friend who was hanging out at the house pointed it out to her. “I don’t want people thinking that’s what I do in my spare time,” she added. 

Twitter found it hilarious, of course. 

Since the tweet went viral, Marissa has started an Instagram account for all of Dixie’s fans. 

We all need to steal this idea.

This Family's Living In The Arctic Thanks To A Cool Geo-Dome

I remember learning about the seven continents in school and always remembered Antarctica as the place no one lived in. Seriously, I can’t name a single city on that whole icy mass of land. As far as I know, only penguins, polar bears, and scientific research outposts exist out there.

But apparently people do live in the Arctic Circle. Like real-life, actual, honest-to-goodness families.

The Hjertefølgers are one such clan. The family of six live in a house that is surrounded by a Solar Geodesic dome.

Inhabitat first wrote about the Hjertefølgers a while ago and revisited the family of six to see how living life on the island of Sandhornøya in the northern part of Norway is like in their unique, energy-trapping house.

The dome allows the family to grow all sorts of fruits and vegetables inside, regardless of the harsh weather conditions of their natural surroundings.

The house inside the dome is a traditional Cob home, which, on top of being very sustainable, can “last forever if you keep it dry” Ingrid told Inhabitat.

It took the family a good three years to finish the home and for the most part, are happy with how it turned out, despite a few concerns.

According to Ingrid, the glass “drips” in the winter time, so a double glass design, although pricey, would solve that problem and allow them to have a tropical garden. Aside from re-arranging plant beds for optimal placement, the Hjertefølgers couldn’t be happier with their home.
