It's Not You, It's Me
Ok. So I know I’m getting old. Or old-ish. And that I no longer recognize any of the teeny-boppers that appear all over the news, etc. So I feel badly judging them without knowing anything about them, but let me just say one thing: THEY’RE ALL BUSTED!!!! Seriously, not one single person that is supposed to be the “hot” new thing is actually hot. Miley Cyrus? So...
I ventured to JCrew this weekend. I wanted to take everything in that store home with me. There wasn’t a single thing that wasn’t fantastic. If I didn’t have a husband and kids at home that I would miss, I’d move in there.
Last night, as he was getting ready for bed, my son started crying because his Grandma was gone and he missed her. My in-laws had pulled out of our driveway and were on their way back to NY. His little tears brought my tears. Because missing someone (or anything for that matter) is so hard. It sucks. And really nothing makes it easier except seeing them again. There wasn’t anything I...
30 for my 30th
Next month I turn 30. Yikes. My husband has been bugging me constantly about gift ideas. I truly haven’t been able to come up with anything I really, really want. (Which, by the way, is a fantastic feeling.) But to appease him, I created a list of 30 gift ideas for my 30th. Here is the list I addressed to him: 1) Spend time with you 2) Spend more time with you 3) a...
Two Months and Counting Down
This lady gets married two months from today. We’ve been together since her birth. I still remember her this young (vaguely). And in exactly two months from today she will be a bride. Someone’s wife. SO exciting. And a little scary because I can remember her like this. But SO exciting. Wish her luck! The next 8 weeks are going to be busy!
Oh, my goodness. Let me just say: “HOLY MONDAY.”
A Day in the Life
[sound of glass shattering, dog barking, dustbuster running, son crying because sister hit him, daughter crying because she's being punished]
Me (to husband): We should give your parents our tickets to the circus and you and I should take the night off.
Husband (looking at father and mother): Who wants to go to the circus?
Mother-in-law: THIS is a circus.
Cookies and Dreams
We grabbed a quick bite at Chick Fil A tonight with the kids. A cookies and cream milkshake was consumed. In the words of my husband “This is insanity.” I concur.
Hey. You Suck
sashayrae: Me: Conservative people suck. They take the fun out of everything. Sarah: Well unless you are conservative. Me: I am so mad right now. I wanna eat my feelings. Sarah: Story of my life Rachael. I wanna eat every feeling I have. CAN SOMEONE GET US A PEANUT BUTTER SUNDAE ON THE FLY PLEASE!?

haygirlhay: losingweightinthecity: (via healthfoodstalker) Apparently, deep in the health care reform legislation, there’s a part where it says that chain restaurants (with 20 or more outlets) must put nutrition information on their menus and signs. What do you think? The more information, the better? Or the government doesn’t belong in your food? I care a lot less about knowing the...

Why am I supposed to eat Larabars and raw almonds?
carolinek: Are they healthier for me? Are they providing some sort of benefit? Why am I spending money on these instead of M&Ms? Are there other things I should be eating, too? Will any of this help if I still eat Chipotle? My eating rule of thumb is always eat Chipotle.
My Take on Tonight's A.I.
Currently watching tonight’s American Idol. My one thought so far- Miley Cyrus dresses like a ho! News flash, Miley…that tank top you’re wearing isn’t a dress. It’s a shirt. Where are your pants? Is that a teeny-tiny piece of denim I see sticking out between your legs? Well, if it is, those are supposed to be shorts not jean underwear. Go put on some clothes.
This Conversation Makes Me Sound Like a Bad Person
Co-worker: Did you hear that [other co-worker] fell down the stairs and is being taken to Urgent Care right now?
Me: No. That totally sucks.
Me: Wait, so [injured co-worker] isn't here right now? That's awesome. Now I can go take candy out of the candy jar on her desk without having to talk to her.
I’ve got two Hershey bars in my top desk drawer. I really want a piece of one. It’s taking all of my willpower not to open the wrapper. The only reason I won’t let myself open them up is that I know exactly what will happen. I’ll eat the whole candy bar. 5 o’clock better hurry up and get here otherwise I’m going to end up spoiling my dinner.
Look, Mom! The blue sky! The beautiful sun!– My son on our family walk yesterday. WELCOME SPRING!
I heart MJ (sorta)
So, I love Marc Jacobs. I won’t rag on him- too much. I was just looking through the new Bloomies catalogue and I saw this Marc bag that I instantly loved. But then I was reminded of few Marc Jacobs bags I already have and you know what, they’re really not made that well at all. The leather isn’t super high quality and I’ve found that they don’t hold up after...

emilyposts: I called my mom when Lauren told me about this because I was shocked she hadn’t called me to discuss. She said she was entirely too upset. I feel the same way. This shit is just sad. If SB can’t make it work and gets cheated on with a stupid whore then the rest of us are legit fucked. (via nosauce) (via allthingsalishan) Thank you, Alishan for ruining my day life.
Awesome Husband FTW
I’ve been in a life rut recently. It’s a combination of many, many things. But I just have been feeling a little down-and-out and can’t seem to break out of it. Yesterday amounted to a pretty crappy day. When I got home from work I warned my husband that there was a good chance at some point that evening I was going to cry. And do you know what he did? He became my hero. ...
And this is why I get no work done from home
Son (from upstairs): Mommmm!!!
Me: What, Buddy?
Son: I had to get up to go pee. 'Cause I pooped in my pants. But it's ok because I put it away.
Me (out of breath from sprinting upstairs): What happened?
Son: I pooped in my pants.
Me (seeing no mass of poop in the underwear that is laying on the floor): Where did the poop go?
Son: I flushed it down the toilet.
Me: How did the poop get in the toilet?
Son: I put it there.
Me: With what?
Son: My hands.
Songs That Literally Transport Me Back To Another...
1) To Be With You/ Mr. Big- This song was playing one night while I was on the phone with my “boyfriend” in the 6th grade. During this song/that conversation I realized that I had a book project due the next morning that I hadn’t even started yet. I hear it and am transplanted back to my bedroom floor with the door closed on a mega sized cordless phone with an eight foot antenna. Such a random...
