Right Now

(this honestly has nothing to do with this post.)

Shirt: Free People (stolen from g-ma); Vest: Nords; Pants: Citizens; Boots: Two Lips (so old)

Sometimes blogging with a baby is easy. Everything flows. Baby is happy (or sleeping), you grab your computer, spill your thoughts, post some pictures and it's all good. Other days, it's hard. 
Like today.
I have been sitting on my bed, computer-on-lap for an upwards of thirty minutes.
The munchkin next to me has been wreaking havoc- squeezing a juice box, closing the screen and kicking my arm. (and I seriously had to just google "wreaking havoc" to make sure I was using it correctly)
The guy just needed his momma. Right then.
And his momma forgot exactly what she was going to write.

I try to blog honestly. I mean, I want to look back and be able to see and remember our life. Real life. And this is my real life today- right now.

And this is just for you:

And in case you're wondering about my random, unfiltered, unformulated thoughts, here they are...

Red lipstick- I want to get some. I have always thought well when I'm older and it's appropriate. And I just realized- I am older. I need to get some. Fun fact: You can turn in empty Mac containers to Mac and get a free lipstick.  I think it's eight empty Mac containers.

*correction (thank you Bridget!) It's only six. Even better!

Crock pot lovin'- I am lovin' on my crock pot today. It makes everything lots and lots easier. Gosh, I really do hate making dinner. Would the younger (unrealistic) version of me be disappointed in that statement? Umm...for sure.

Mad Husband- Today McKay got mad at a Comcast woman on the phone. I mean, he was mad. McKay doesn't get mad at strangers. Ever. I am always the one to reach over and honk the horn when he's driving and someone cuts us off or other things of that nature. I am a bad influence I guess. Anyways- today he was mad and it was weird. He threatened to cancel our cable. I had a small panic-attack inside (because Gossip Girl is starting soon).

that's all.


  1. brightly-hued lipsticks are such pick-me-uppers. i think you'll look ravishing in red. : ) and i could be totally wrong, but i think you only need 6 containers! i think. and i'm such a lipstick fiend, i never knew lipstick wasn't the only option -- last time i got an eyeshadow instead. : )

    1. Are you serious?! I am so glad you told me! I would much rather have eyeshadow! And 6 is wayyy better than 8!

  2. Hahaha I laughed out loud about your last comment - about having a small panic attack because gossip girl is starting! Girl after my own heart. And I love how honestly you blog - it's not just for readers but for you :)

    Life etc
