Moms Just Wanna Have Fun

21 November 2013


 a // b // c // d

So they order home try-on frame kits. This was the next best thing to spending a million dollars on one ticket to the Justin Timberlake concert and 1/2 a million dollars on a sitter while Simon worked late on Tuesday night. I'm not a Justin fanatic or anything but I've reached that point that homebounds reach in the dead of winter when even bringing the big trashcan in from the curb gets my heart a fluttering because it's a little change of pace and I need to pace my wall-scaling cabin fever because it's November, I know. So a concert sounds life changing but the home try-on frame kit was a super close second place. Don't state the obvious that a, b, and d are basically identical or that my t-zone is out of control or that these photos are grainy. I'm triple aware. I like b the best and I doubt I'll even bite the frame bullet but still .... it was a fun ten minute retreat away from the norm. This isn't sponsored or anything ... I just wanted to have fun. And Warby delivered. (It's totally free and totally fun ... do it up). Anyway ... do you like one over the others? Or do they all look the same?

What else? I'll tell you.

Julia just cried sick-wolf from her fake nap and I found a wall COVERED in purple crayon. So ... her bedtime may have just occurred at 3:30 in the pm if she knows what's best for her but a Magic Eraser will get that out, no problem .... right?

Mary sent this earlier today and it reaffirmed my deep affection for Costco.

About .2 seconds after I found out I was pregnant my face decided to do a little reenactment of its college shenanigans by way of worst and most painful breakouts ever ever ever. And because I really can't go on Accutane again (I just remember the medication always came with huge warnings and babies with coneheads ... so REALLY not pregnancy safe) I read a million reviews and settled on the Clear Regular Strength Acne System from Paula's Choice during a 3 am date with insomnia. It came 8 days ago and my face cleared up immediately and a blemish hasn't dared to surface since. I feel like an infomercial when I talk about it to Simon but so far -- it's been a miracle worker. I'm using it in conjunction with the Nerium because I love Nerium and the kit didn't come with lotion. Again, not sponsored but if you're as desperate as I was and want to order it - if you use my referral link we'll both get $10 off our next orders. Hopefully I'll never need to order it again though.

Okay so back to the cold weather that isn't even that cold. I hope Kelsey is cackling from her post up in Alaska where this is probably the equiv of a balmy July to her and her brood. Anyway, I have serious dress envy from her night out with her man (aka husband) and I'm wondering how ridic something like that would look at the hospital Christmas party where I've seen many a female in fancy slacks. Probably not very.

I trust you saw Jen's gorgeous book cover? More envy. The healthy kind of envy - fear not. Although Simon said if I ever write a book it should be titled, "Hair Volume: My Lifelong Quest" so .... my imaginary cover might look a little bit different. More serious maybe.

A few ad spots opened up today and I'd love to have you .... so there's that little bit of spice.

And finally ... let's end things with a bang here ... tons of kind souls gave me some awesome dinner recipe recommendations on the old Facebook page yesterday. I can't stop thinking about cauliflower (see post title) so I'm making this for dinner. Simon's response was a whooooole lot of silence so I'll let you know his exact vocalized sentiments posthaste. Of course I will.

  1. Well I am glad you found a good solution for acne because accutane is off the market even if you weren't pregnant. It's funny my face was all kinds of crazy and pregnancy cleared my face up and it's been that way ever since. It's like a dream.

  2. I liked C the best because I like the browner tone with your coloring. And I'm going to look into this because I need new glasses and I'm too cheap to pay regular price, and I'm scared to order them online from someplace like Firmoo because I really, really need to see how I look in them.

  3. C is a winner in my book. The frames are slightly smaller than the rest and I love the brown color. And I say go for a gown. Even pregnant - you would totally rock one!

  4. C is my favorite also! I think they fit your face really well, and not to be a crazy creeper but I'm trying on the same ones on the off chance that we have similar face shapes :) If I like them, I'll be back for your discount code!

  5. So I want to say B are my favorite...no rhyme or reason to that...I just like them! And you say the words camp counselor and the dress can be shipped your way :) I mean even in all your your preggo glory I am sure you are much smaller than I, but I can give you the Alaskan winter diet I am on. It is called bored and depressed eating, where you eat anything and everything all the damn time in order to forget that it is -12 outside and there is a winter weather advisory for freezing rain. Ok I am off to check out your rec on the acne front!

  6. Ok, I just took the plunge and ordered some frames. My glasses have been broken for over a year, so I think it's time. And my vote is either c or d for the the win.

  7. C... and if magic eraser doesn't work, just mix up a little baking soda/water paste and scrub off the crayon

  8. C!! Beautiful!! Today we poked holes in a diaper box and then shined a flashlight thru the holes for 45 minutes of reaaaal entertainment!

  9. Oh, and last night I took my glasses off to remove my hoodie and set them on the bed, then laid down on top of them. Took me like half a minute to realize why my book looked all fuzzy. Pretty sure I'll be trying on frames soon too. I'm a little embarrassed so I haven't told my husband yet; let me tell the whole Internet though.

  10. You made me laugh, Grace :D I hadn't even noticed your T-zone. I agree with some of the people above, I like C for the same reasons they do.

  11. Good for you! Yeah with acutane I had too get a pregnancy test every month! I just thought it was kind of funny...

  12. I think I like C the most, with A or D being runner-up. :) And if you decide to take the plunge, Warby Parker is Thee Best to deal with. Fast, quality, and awesome customer service. I e-mailed them because my frames were crooked (!!!!) on my face (!!!!) and they were super nice. The real, live lady told me I could send them back or go to a local eye shop to get them adjusted. She even said that WP would reimburse me for the cost if the shop decided to charge me for some reason (they didn't). So, yeah, awesome. Not a paid comment at all but I wouldn't turn them down if they wanted to sponsor me. *big nearsighted wink*

  13. Ok, I just ordered the Paula's Choice, thank you for the $10, enjoy yours too ;) This is my first time buying this product, I'm excited to try something new and hope it makes my skin look as good as yours in the pics ;)

    And your frames comment about a,b,d all looking the same made me laugh because I thought...those are all the same ha! My fav are the tortoise shell..but I'm just a sucker for that look. ;)

  14. can't wait to hear how the soup was. I love that website. very yummy recipes.

  15. I think C and D are the most flattering to your lovely face. I think that Warby Parker home try-on thing is really cool, but fortunately I had lasik about 6 years ago, so I don't need glasses anymore, which is the BEST. Not that you asked. And yes, Accutane is a bitch and in no way pregnancy friendly. I, a 29 year old, am currently on it. That's right. 29. And since I am a female of childbearing age, it was a looong and annoying process to get on it. It's a pretty terrible drug.

  16. A is my choice! And you have waaaaay more volume than I do. So you better start that book so I can learn.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I'm trying to not read the above to bias my view..... (drum roll...) I vote... C!
    Def suits the colour of your skin and are super cute. loving the geek chic.

  18. I like C! I just discovered Warby Parker a month ago and had my fun little try-on too. I'm a PhD student who looks way better in contacts but way smarter in glasses, so I think occupationally I need a pair, but I don't want to spend $400 on a pair I'll only wear a couple of days a week. I was super stoked to find out about them. Just waiting for a little Christmas cash to make my decision. ;)

  19. I love C, love the shape too & colour cuteee:)

  20. I really feel like this is some elaborate Grace joke and all those glasses are the same.

    ReplyDelete
  21. C all the way. Blondes need the softness of brown is their wardrobes. Black is too bold on a blond.
    Have you ever doubted my opinions?

    ReplyDelete
  22. they all look the same! but I agree with C.

    ReplyDelete
  23. A! and I am a total Paula's Choice fan. Real research goes into that biz.

    ReplyDelete
  24. This is my first time commenting :) even though your blog is a main read! I am going to order some of Paula's Choice right now. Love that they are fragrance free (seeing that it doesn't respond well with my skin). Thank you for your recommendation and for opening my eyes to that world that I was missing :)
