Friday favorite

only one favorite this week, because the one is just perfect. this literally just made my day, y’all. i have watched it like 8 times and kind of can’t get enough. messaging and execution, completely on point. i honestly don’t think this could have been cast, scripted, shot or edited any more perfectly. bravo, Lane Bryant and Laird…

newsflash: basics no longer standard

that’s right. this post really is about the most boring shirt you ever saw. the image isn’t just a clever metaphor for some deeper statement about the comfort of blandness in our ever-complicated world. this is literally just a story about the un-fucking-believable lengths i went to this morning to be a good mom, and…

wine Wednesday: we all scream for wine ice cream!

just wow. anybody who’s ever had a gruesome, wallow-inducing break-up, something rooftop-shoutingly phenomenal to celebrate or just an everyday case of feeling utterly decadent will totally be able to relate to the sheer awesomeness of this find: Mercer’s Wine Ice Cream. in the ultimate 2-great-tastes-that-taste-great-together combo, the most clichéd and delicious heartbreak/celebration/indulgence go-to foods confirm what i’ve always known:…

NaBloPoMo day 25: my Thanksgiving recipes

mmm-kay. so ‘member last night when i said i’d try and post my recipes? (yeah, you do.) well this had the potential to get totally ghetto. y’all almost got iPhone pictures of the ass-old-stained-scribbled-on-now-moldy-because-i-have-no-idea-why pages in my recipe binder. but i decided i was better than that. and these recipes deserve better than that. they are…

NaBloPoMo day 12: crazy cats, sleep gadgets & MOAR. COFFEE.

at this rate, my time will come probably at some point next week. i have never looked forward to anything more in my life. ever. goodbye, cruel, sleep-stealing world! okay, i know i post a lot about sleeping. or, more accurately, not sleeping. or sometimes how much everyone else seems to be sleeping while i’m not sleeping. i’m…

NaBloPoMo day 7: Friday favorites

yay for Friday! seems like things are finally getting back to normal with Spy back from all his travels and me getting back to some semblance of a routine. as much as i hate to admit it, i thrive on routine. just wish i could be disciplined enough to stick to one for any length…

wine Wednesday: reds blues

it’s been a while since i’ve done one of these. with all this writing, i definitely need a glass of wine, thought! i was hoping to have some good news to report out of the last Naked Wines box, but alas, i got down to the reds and they’ve been kind of disappointing. that’s Southern…

Friday favorites + Blogtober14 catch-ups

well this was inevitable. so much blogging, so little time. i fell behind on the #Blogtober14 prompts. again. but lucky for me (and you!), i think i can wrap up yesterday’s, today’s (since they’re both kind of about favorite things) and my semi-usual Friday favorites in one neat little package here. so overachieving of me, huh? don’t get…

Friday favorites

one work week of single-mommydom almost down! if that’s not a reason to celebrate Friday, i sure don’t know what is. somewhere between running double-duty on carpool and hostessing Barbie show marathons, i managed to come across a couple cool things that a preschooler would probably hate. enjoy and happy Friday, y’all! being a card…

Friday favorites

just a few funsies this week. looking forward to beautiful fall weather and a productive weekend with the whole family at home before Spy runs off to Europe for a bit. TGIF!   perfect passtime over the past couple weeks, i at least started the process of cleaning out and organizing my closet for fall. not fun. unfortunately/fortunately, i…

wine Wednesday: the box is back!

  so excited that another case arrived from Naked Wines arrived last week! not excited about the hideous black and blue marks on my arms from hauling the hulking box from office to car on Friday, determined that come hell or high water, i would have it for the weekend. i look like an NFL girlfriend….

Friday favorites

wow. it has been an insane week. well, couple of weeks. maybe it was the full moon, but everything has just seemed to be running at a completely heightened pace and there’s hardly a minute to breathe. i’m very much looking forward to a quiet-ish weekend that includes a Saturday drive in the countryside and…
