I’ve devolved into expensive (over-priced?) athletic wear slug life. things could be worse. clothes that are perfect for workouts and then to stay in all damn day and, let’s be honest, i’d sleep in them too if I didn’t have a spouse to keep me in check.
thanks to their black Friday 20% off sale I finally grabbed some of the Athleta i’d been eyeing for a while. i’ve been bummed each time I have to take off my plié tights (1) and the tranquility cowl neck (2). i want to live in them. the tights… oh man, they’re just so cozy, and so flattering! and the top? it’s a giant cozy sweater. need I say more?
now if only they could get the relevé skirt (4) and cocoon top (3) back in stock so I could add those to my “i’m never taking these off” collection.
not pictured: the Zella live-in leggings that Tumblr talked me into and GOTDAMN! they’re worth it. so friggin worth it!! (it should be noted that I tried on one of the more expensive Live-In leggings and the fabric was waaay thinner and more revealing than the $52 ones. good thing I tried those too — now I can’t take them off!)
i’m so bad at this “Santa” thing
I can’t even count the number of times Roger has seen something sitting in a box in my room and run over to me with so much excitement, holding a gift in his had, asking “is this mine??”
pretty sure he’s seen almost every gift Santa is giving him. oops. he’s only 2 1/2, his memory can only be so good, right?
I thought it was an unwritten agreement that when it’s 30° and sleeting out we’d wear cozy clothes to church… apparently the rest of the congregation didn’t get the memo. oh well, at least I was warm.
A list of parenting action items, created in the hope that we can raise a generation of children who have less rape and sexual assault in their lives…from toddlers to teens.
One of the most important parenting articles out there.
one of the most important things I’ve ever reblogged.
#4 - people don’t realize that they ignore children’s requests to “stop” all the time. even if you’re tickling your kid and you’re all having fun and they’re laughing but saying “no… hahaha… don’t tickle me!…. haha” it’s SO IMPORTANT that you stop. yes, you’re just playing around but they need to understand that they’re in control of their bodies and that if someone doesn’t respect that they need to get away from that person. Fast. I can’t stress this enough, it’s so easy to miss these types of things but they’re sending messages and you don’t even want your kids to think that an adult’s want to touch them overrides their want to not be touched/tickled/etc. (also, I won’t get started on how tickling is a gateway drug for predators but i’m sure you can see where that conversation goes. i’m not saying don’t tickle your kids, i’m just saying it’s important that kids know what “tickling” is appropriate.)
Male sure to get a side if cheese sauce for those hush puppies. Yummm
had no clue this was an option! see, this is why I need the menu! (and Tumblr)
DVRing the Thanksgiving Day parade might be the best thing I’ve done this year.
not only am I thrilled that Roger enjoys it as much as I do but he’s requested it at least once a day. who knew he wanted to be in a drumline so badly?
also, i’m thinking the real live Christmas parade tomorrow is going to blow his whole world wide open.
gotDAMN I love toddlers!!
I get so much anxiety whenever I pull up to the Cook-Out drive thru because I never have time to browse the menu and there’s always a ridiculous line and I hate the idea of people getting frustrated because i’m holding up the line so I panic and order the same thing every time.
so I decided to take a photo of the menu to have it on hand to browse before I go there in the future.
and then I looked at the line of cars behind me and I got nervous so this is the photo I ended up with.
my life is so sad.
I guess i’ll be sticking to my burger combo w/ hush puppies & Cajun fries with a banana/chocolate milkshake until further notice. it could be worse.
I DVRed the Live Sound of Music but after browsing my dash real quick me thinks I might not waste the time.
but who doesn’t love watching a train wreck?
i’m so torn. we’ll see what tomorrow brings
no one told me that Vampire Bill is Capt. VonTrapp in the Live Sound of Music
i’m interested now.
and this is exactly why I seek your help Tumblr
I thought #4 looked the worst on me but it’s your overwhelming favorite. so #4 it is and i’m off to find some jewelry.
- for the record, husband liked #1 & 4 the best too but sadly his vote doesn’t count
- and they were all from BR —
sequin (the color combo I have on isn’t online but is in stores)
apparently they don’t have the peplum one online but this is similar
- also… might be keeping the gold one anyway because it’s just so damn cozy. maybe i’ll just put it with dark jeans? we’ll see if I can justify it
- and Thank you. Thank You. THANK YOU! to everyone who complimented my current figure. i’ve (literally) been working my ass off to get into shape and hearing that it’s working is such great motivation to keep going!
