some tidbits

Oct 30, 2015

sweatshirt: urban outfitters // necklace: happiness boutique c/o

This may very well be the most random post I ever write...but I figure why not? There is just so much swirling around in my head. And this week has been all over the place. Today alone we have three Halloween parties, which I looked at Chris and just said, how? But I have had my Halloween mom hat on all week. I even, get this people, I even volunteered for Ace's class party! WHAT! So not like me. Usually I am like just hit me up with a list and I'll buy whatever you need. But it just worked out for me to go. 

And I wore the above attire. My favorite Halloween sweatshirt, and added a little bit of sparkle with a statement necklace as if to say....I love Halloween but I didn't want to scare all the kids with my face makeup. I saved that for the Halloween parade the other day. 

Anyway, while on the topic of costumes, have you seen some of the costumes floating around? I mean, pinterest has transformed how we put costumes together. Or I should say how some put them together. I am old fashion and let the kids pick out their costumes in the aisles of Target. But some of these elaborate costumes were amazing, and creative, and I thought, how much time did you spend on that? One mom told me she spent hours on pinterest combining different ideas to get her daughters my little pony costume complete with life size rainbow. It was dope! 

On to more randomness, seasonal allergies are hitting me pretty good. And I am here to admit that I have an irrational fear of eye drops. Can't do it. Won't do it. Chris literally sat on me to try and help me put them in and still I was like, noooooooo! So weird. I will forever have red eyes.

Moving on to the next thought. After taking the initial plunge to chop my hair, I have this urge to go shorter. Can anyone relate? I brought it up to Chris and he immediately said, negative. I am thinking like another two or three inches. 

Also, I am guessing it is my lack of vitamin D for my irritability lately, but I just can't take people. I mean I know we look like a circus going through any store. But I will never understand people and their comments, especially when my kids are on a half way decent behavior streak. A lady in Target was stuck in the same aisle as us and said "wow! you sure have your hands full!" Yes...never heard that one before. She said "what are their ages? They look really close!" I said, yes, all 19 months apart (said with a smile at that point). She looked shocked and in a sardonic tone said "you guys just couldn't figure out how that kept happening could you?" I replied with "doggie style, that's how it happened". I think her jaw dropped on the floor. Sorry lady that I had to snap you back to reality but why are you judging? Do you have to pay for the three boxes of diapers, a box of wipes, and whatever random stuff from the dollar section? No. Am I questioning why you are buying the things in your cart? Nope. But most importantly do you feel like you can now go about your day having been rude to a complete stranger? Yes? Okie dokie then. 

And I think that was my last and final thought. haha! 

If you want to see some Halloween madness, follow me on my second favorite app, snapchat!

I hope you all have a super fun and safe weekend!


  1. First of all I am the same way with drops. So what I do is rip my head back and shut my eyes... Then I drop the whatever it is into the corner of my closed eye by my nose, that side. Then open my eye. Wala! Drops get where they need to go and there is no pinning down. I cannot BELIEVE you said that to her. That is amazing! I would have been fuming and angry on the inside. You've got lady balls. And I love you for it.

    1. Lady balls - Bwahaha! Perfect word for it! And yes Kelsey has all my admiration for letting that lady know how ridiculous she is, so many of us quietly smoulder on the inside.

  2. Okay, another tip on the drops :) when you are in the shower, put some of the drops on your fingers and then just rub your eyes with those fingers. Cute sweatshirt and I can't wait to see y'alls costumes this year!

  3. AHHH the eye drops! the worst! I hate it. Even giving them to people at work creeps me out!!! And the target lady! you are hilarious! Love that you said that to her!

  4. You are my hero. I am LMAO at your response to the jerk in Target. I would like to think I'll have the balls to pull that off one day. For now, I practice with my English Bulldog. Every time someone tells me he's "so ugly he's cute", I respond with, "That's funny, that's how he feels about you too". I think I'm ready for motherhood for sure.

  5. I can't believe how creative some people can get with their costumes. It blows my mind. I was definitely always a pre-made kind of girl, lol

  6. "Doggie style"... just dying. So funny.

  7. Love a statement necklace--that one is so pretty!

  8. LOVE your response. Ha ha! There are definitely those days when I'd love to respond similarly to all situations that people think they need to comment on. It took ages for me to be able to deal with eye drops. A good way to start is to just lay back and close your eyes and put the drop in the inner corner of your eye and then quickly blink and let the liquid in that way rather than trying to keep your eye open while it's coming at you. ;)

  9. Kyle usually doesn't have too much to say about what I do to my hair, he always just says it's your head and it will grow back lol.

  10. that necklace and your response are amazing. ha! and yes, go shorter. I love having mine just to my shoulders.

  11. Good response to the miserable lady. My Grandmother used to say " If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all" That lady in Target should take my Grams advise.

  12. OMG! Doggie style...laughing so damn hard!
