cuatro de mayo

04 May 2017

back to back quakes. sue me good.

1. There's a long list of instructions/rules I have to recite to Phoebe before her daily "nap" but the biggest one is that she not empty/rifle through the dresser drawers and closet to put together her 78th, 79th, and 80th outfits of the day before noon.


Yesterday she came traipsing out in this get-up. Obedience is a strong suit of hers. Even Diego has had it with her shenanigans. Quiet is quiet, says the resigned mom.

2. This made me LOL. Even though - I do heart my hearse.

3. I've been reading The Futures this week and really enjoying it despite finding it super depressing - riddle me that. It's one of those books that I think would make a good movie and I've already mentally cast Channing Tatum as Evan, Johanna Brady as Julia, and Scott Porter as Adam. No, I do not need a hobby and I don't know why you would ever, ever ask.

4. Speaking of depressing - I know everyone seemed to love the screen adaptation of Big Little Lies but Simon and I found it to be um yes, depressing. I read and loved the book. We are only two episodes in so maybe we need to press on?

5. Something that is not depressing - a fun giveaway with Minnetonka over on my Instagram -- CHECK IT.


And don't all beg me for self tanner product recs at once. A lady has to hold onto some of her beauty secrets.

6. One upping last week - we've got 50% off sale styles to feast our clicks on this week. I love these studs and this navy tank.

7. Just your annual reminder (as it seems like graduation/teacher/Father's Day/Mother's Day gift buying ramps up) that if you haven't already - get on the eBates train - well worth the couple of clicks for that cash back!

I hope you've got some wild and crazy Cinco de Mayo plans in the works - why do margaritas (extra salt) always sound SO good during pregnancy? Drink a few for me!!!

¡hasta la vista!

  1. I, too, am only 2 episodes into Big Little Lies and not enjoying it very much at all yet. I also loved the book immensely but it just isn't quite converting to the screen the way I pictured it, I guess. I hope it gets better!! Laughing at Phoebe's outfit changes ;)

  2. Definitely press on! It's not lighthearted, but it's SO good. There's more about the friendships the women form as it progresses. And those houses, serious kitchen envy. (I didn't read the book, though, so I didn't have that to wrestle with.)

  3. I rarely drink, but when I'm pregnant crave margaritas so much! Also pregnant this year and very sad to be missing out!

  4. I really enjoyed The Futures even though, you are right, it was a little depressing and I don't usually go for depressing. Although, I frequently go for the working NYC professional so that might be why I liked it so much.

  5. ahhh, Big Little Lies, I was watching the clock on the first 2 episodes. I don't think I was "IN" until episode 4. PRESS ON!

  6. What is the style of your sandals? I bought my daughter some in the same style and have desperately been searching for the adult version. Thanks!

  7. I loved the book Little Big Lies too and was excited about the series...I could barely get through the first episode, but I'm plugging along and have 3 more to go. It is depressing and I'm not a fan of Nicole Kidman, so that might be why I'm having trouble finishing the series.

  8. One more Amen to Big Little Lies; I really enjoyed the book, and while I'm only a few episodes into the miniseries, I feel like I have to keep telling my husband about some scene or something that did NOT happen in the book. It's like HBO felt the need, per usual, to make it even darker and grittier and more dramatic than necessary. Hate that.

  9. Press on! I watched the finale twice, loved it. Read the book too.

  10. I have not read the book Big Little Lies, but the show was depressing and made me really anxious. I thought it was just me so I am glad to hear I am not alone. I watched the whole show because I grew up where it was filmed and the ocean pulled me in, then I needed to know how the characters all ended up. It did get better toward the end.

  11. Hello! I love reading your blog and looking at all your pictures! We're about to get an F1B Goldendoole, and I have boys that are 1, 4, and 6. Any suggestions for bringing a puppy home, making a smooth transition, and not losing my mind in the process? The puppy will be almost 4 months old when we get him. I'm excited and nervous at the same time.

  14. I bought non-alcoholic margarita mix to have with fajitas tonight! I've been craving the lime/salt for weeks now and I'm allowing myself the sodium splurge since it's a holiday and all ;)

  15. Only recently found your blog, but love it! I'm only sad I didn't find it years ago, but just wanted to pipe in and say that I'm a fangirl. We're close in age so your posts I've read that include any throwback mentions make me LOL. Are we still saying that? No? Okay, cool. Happy Saturday!

  16. I just love Phoebe's outfit changes!! My aunt has been trying to get me to watch Big Little Lies, saying it's really good, but we don't have the right channel!
