Random Musings this Monday Morning
I didn’t really watch the Oscars last night. I just zoomed through my DVR to see the dresses. The girl crush for Gwyneth Paltrow that I’ve had since the early 90s? Still going strong. She was all kinds of amazing looking last night. As was Mila Kunis, Natalie Portman, and Camilla Alves. Also, one of the girls up for Best Actress, Jennifer Something-or-other looked exactly like...
I can’t get enough of Etsy. And I’ve found my new favorite shop. [Seller:BijouxbyDesif] It’s here. This is the necklace I’m wearing today: And here’s a close-up: Under the star and moon are three small circles with my kids’ initials. Gold plated and under $40. Before ordering this necklace I had purchased two pairs of earrings from this shop. ...
YOU GUYS. I highly suggest you run to Whole Foods immediately and purchase a box (or three) of these: Yep. Rice Krispie treats stuffed with ice cream. You won’t be sorry. And you can thank me later.
The answer to the question "how was your day?"
Husband: There really was no one at the office today so I decided to play pranks on people.
Me: What? What kind of pranks?
Husband: Let's see...well for one person I put translucent tape over the mouthpiece of their phone. So they won't notice it right away but the person on the other end of the line won't be able to hear them. I glued someone else's computer mouse to their desk. I switched the "0" and the "backspace" button on someone's keyboard. Stuff like that.
Me: How old are you?
A conversation in which we discuss our flaws
[husband is playing with Baby Girl on floor and starts staring at her legs]
Husband: Oh my God. She has...
Me: Cankles. I know.
Husband: You asshole. If [middle daughter] gets my nose at least she can have surgery. If [Baby Girl] has cankles there is nothing she can do about it.
Me: Trust me. I know that.
Husband: Great. Now you've given her a chance of having legs like Hillary Clinton's.
Me: Hillary Clinton has cankles?
Husband: Where've you been?
Please don’t be cynical. I hate cynicism — it’s my least favorite quality and it...– Conan O’Brien (via trappedintime) (via pinkhotel) (via emphasisadded) (via eminnyc)
For our family, my husband and I will try to come up with ways to make dinners fun. And to create traditions and memories for our kids at the same time. Now, these things don’t happen all the time. Most nights it’s just our little family crowded around our table. But that actually makes the special meals even more special. Some of the great things we do (if I do say so myself)...
I think no one should make fun of anyone else’s handbag choices…Because...– HILLARY CLINTON… on handbags (via today, bbook) Who am I to argue with the Secretary of State? Time to buy another bag. (via noraleah)
[My mom walks into room at her house while we were visiting. TV on, with kids in room and daughter on Husband's lap.]
Mom: What are you watching?
Husband: Pawn Stars.
Husband: Pawn Stars.
Mom: Porn Stars?! You're watching porn stars now?
Husband: No. Pawn Stars. P-a-w-n.
[Husband turns to me]
Husband: Like I'd watch porn with kids in the room.
How does Justin Bieber get his hair so handsome?– The 5 year old
On Tuesday, Heidi Montag tweeted ‘Watch out Real Housewives of Beverly Hills....– Andy Cohen, I love you so much. (via ohheyychrissy)
Me: I'm hungry. I want Mexican food.
Husband: When don't you want Mexican food?
Me: You're right. From now on I'll just say "I'm hungry" and the "I'm in the mood for Mexican" will just be implied.
Subject: I love you
I would like to be able to honestly say that I’m a mother that has it all together. But the reality is that I usually don’t. I know it sounds like a excuses, excuses but I’ve got to tell you, working full-time with three kids is hard. Harder than I ever could have imagined. When I was a new mom, dreaming of what being a mother would look like, I envisioned myself doing it all. Being the type...
