Instavida + Clickables Mashup

12 June 2013

Going the sort of lazy route today as the trip to Costco completely took it out of me and I forgot the one thing I set out to get ... trash bags ... (but did I get Cheetos and popsicles and a hot dog + diet coke combination? of course!) so I'll be going back tomorrow or braving the regular person's store with all three kids .... which is generally filed under - "I'd rather eat a spoonful of mayonnaise than do that" (and my level of loathe for mayonnaise .... it knows no bounds).

Some linkage for you:

Julia's been obsessed with her "magic huckles" lately. I have no idea what those are but she carries them everywhere, sleeps with them, FREAKS if Bash looks in their direction, and claims they are in two cans of tomato paste (labels removed). I'm like, "yay!! imagination!!" and I really hope she turns out to be half as imaginative and creative as Ana's girls. Hope and pray - every single day.

Jenny's been killing it over on her blog lately but I especially loved this post. Loved. If I grow up to turn phrases half as well as she does ... I'll be thrilled. 

Janssen admits her husband was right and rocks some serious plaid that I am more than seriously coveting. Watch your back, J.

I have yet to meet Kayla in real life but I have a feeling if and when I do she might renege on the nicest post in the history of nice posts she wrote about the Camp earlier today. Bless her. Seriously.

I'm SO excited for Paige because she just wrote her first book. I haven't quite finished it but it's riddy riddy good and hilarious and relatable and I'll gush all about it in a post of its own very soon.

Okay onto the snores ... that I know you can already see via slideshow on this blog but ... dead horse beating is a hobby-o-mine.
 

1. I'm sure it looks like I just throw them in their stagecoach willy nilly but really - we're looking at 90+ minutes for head to toe wardrobing before we set out on our morning funtrot.

2. Thrifted for Theo. He hated.



3. one month ago
4. one week ago ...... I'm scared for July and our hair cessation classes.



5. we spent Saturday night at a friend's horrible house with a pathetic excuse of a pool and ... we'll be back before they can change their locks and their last name.
6. Always complicated monosyllabic discussions with my early riser over his complete breakfast of oatmeal that he calls ... "is?" 99 times in a row.



7. "yeah, put that one on the internet."
8. letting him go braless for a few free minutes.



9. Lumberjacked. (outfit curated by Julia)
10. Simon picked this swimnumber up for her and I'm not entirely convinced it isn't a dance recital costume.


And back to my lazy river I swim.

  1. Just reading the word mayonnaise twice made me want to VOM. I can't believe I typed it.

    Awesome post - always.

  4. Ahhhh! I patronized Costco for the first time this weekend with my sister-in-law and LOVE it. Unfortunately the closest one is 1 hr away so we'll have to suffer through Sams. E has that swimsuit too... screams ballet recital...

  5. I hate friends like that. A pool! how dare they! LOL! Looks like Mermaid Julia had a lovely time. I want a suit just like hers. LOVE the hot pink. Love it!

    However - my FAVORITE is the one of Theo in the bathroom mirror. LOVE it! Funny thing though...my butt looks the same. Wrinkled like an elephant's, needing some serious ironing. Looks cute on him...me? not so much!

    Hmmm...time for the 30 day shred...

    Hugs from VA!

  6. Totally agree with you about mayo! Yuck! On another note, I would love to see a post from you sometime about what you like from Costco. I shop there and have a few favorites (organic quinoa, California Olive Ranch olive oil, and Kirkland baby wipes) but I'd love to hear what your go-to items are. Of course, you already have plenty of writing material, but just thought I'd throw that idea out there!

    1. haha you think people would want to hear that? I'll GLADLY share - pretty boring though! I'm a lover of those wipes -- they double as bathroom wiper downers :)

  7. Love this post! And Kayla's article is spot on. Still rolling over the picture captions, especially Theo's "braless" one! Would also love to hear about your Costco faves...

  8. We have a pool! Will you come visit? ;)

    I think this might be the first time I've encountered another person with the same level of mayonnaise (ack, vom, shudder) disgust as me. Well, you and "wonderchris" apparently. LOL!

  9. Thanks for the links to those other blogs! I love finding good ones to read :) Thanks for your time in writing, I always enjoy it.

  10. I saw THREE little ladies in that swimsuit today. Target right? Obviously Simon is in-the-know with popular toddler suits...

  11. What is it about Dads loving super-girly bathing suits for their daughters??? Too funny. Our girl has only ever had bathing suits with little skirts attached as a result, too!

  12. Grace, I love your grams! The captions make me crack a big smile on even the crappiest days :) thanks for the great links, too!
    P.S. Theo's hair is three kinds of fabulous and I wish I could babysit Julia so she could fill me in on all of her fashion sense.

  13. Someone who loathes mayonnaise as much as me?? No way!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Can we still be friends if I totally love mayo? Like. . .I would actually totally eat a spoonful of it. No problem.

    And now all your readers are like, "Who is this disgusting person and why is she embarrassing herself by saying this in public?"

  15. Thank you for the mention and link to my humble work! That said, I don't outright hate it, but mayonnaise and I have a complicated relationship that convinces me I'll like it but then I remember I'm not really a fan and end up wishing I'd just used mustard. Life is so hard sometimes.

  16. Do not like mayonnaise. Do like tiny lumberjacks. (And Jenny!)

  17. Blushing AND salivating...not over the mayo, but over the prospect of a trip to Costco next week. I may just ask Dave to let me sneak out for some 'alone time' in the warehouse.

  18. Loved Julia's swimsuit! And Theo is the cutest baby ON EARTH! Don't you have any supermarket that makes delivery over there? My brother and sister in law have 3 small kids and she NEVER goes get her groceries. She orders them online and they bring them to her door ;) She hates going shopping with the three kids...

  19. Its great to finally find someone who shares my sentiments on mayonaise, yuck!
    And Theo's squished wrinkly butt, too much cute in one photo! He is going to love you one day for putting that one out into the world:)

  20. I love mayonnaise (which might be the reason I am always struggling to lose 5 pounds) but the thought of eating a spoonful of it made me gag. Pictures of your kids however, always make me smile. Especially balding Theo - I'm going to miss that tuft of hair when it's gone!

  21. Naomi and Bernadette would be so jealous of Julia's magic huckles, they sound pretty fabulous.

  22. Love your humour and blog :)!

  23. instavida = instalaugha. Still laughing 8's caption.

  24. Lazy? This wasn't lazy at all. I haven't posted in weeks. Because writing a blog post is the hardest, most exhausting thing in the world. So basically, you are like a tri-athlete in my eyes.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hahahha 'letting him go braless'. I just did a 'from the depths of my lungs' chuckle that I tried to stifle as people are watching TV in this room... hahahah!

  26. I love when you do clickables and it was perfect timing for my insomnia last night! I spent waaay too much time browsing through your friend Ana's blog, but thank you for sharing. I love adding new mom blogs to my list! And why are all you Steubenville girls so cool and fun?! You all make me wish I went there. :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. My sister hates mayo, too. She about throws up over those commercials with the squeezable mayo that people splurt all over their sandwiches. Literally gags.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Just added Paige's book to my lineup. And her blog.

    Now, finding time to read...

  29. Your children are adorable and obviously have sooo much fun with life. Good job, Mama. :)
