You’re all, DOOODE, WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN!?

Clearly, not blogging.

I’d like to direct you to my pal Felicia. She posted about this very subject on Monday. This is why I love her. (Warning: She uses some swears. Hell, I use swears. If you can’t handle it you probably shouldn’t be reading my blog, you goodie-goodie, you.)

So, anyway…life was happening and I was not really around a ‘puter to get to the bloggin’ this weekend. We drove to my parents house in Wiscompton and did some relaxing with my folks. Abbers had her third opportunity to sleep in her pack and play…only this time she was too big for the bassinet, so she just slept in the other part. I use the word “slept” loosely since she didn’t really. She HATED it. She slept on my chest in our bed. Meanwhile, I didn’t sleep.

Monday we had Mommy/Daughter day and went to IKEA to hunt down the crib we’ll be assembling at my parents house lest we go through the no-sleep -solution again.  I managed to find a duvet for our bed that was a whopping $14.99 and bought some new throw pillows so I now have a GREY AND YELLOW BEDROOM! (Except for the blue walls, but I digress.) I bought some other crap too.

But STOP EVERYTHING.

Do you see that? “Your package has been delivered.” Do you know what package that is?

MY MODERN BIRD PRINT, THAT’S WHAT!

I’m SO EFFING EXCITED!

I’m going to take a crap load of photos tonight and share them. I promise. The hubs owes me a night of devotion to my compy.

Oh yeah, Happy Moms day to all y’all mammas. I trust it was splendid for each of you. The hubs was kind enough to spring for a pair of replacement William Rast Jeans for the ones I purchased many many moons ago.  My pregnant and post-pregnancy gams managed to rub a hole through the inner thigh, making them an “at home” kind of jean. Now, I have a new pair. YUSSSSSS. Alright, check back later for photos that I PROMISE I’LL PUT UP.

In case you’re participating too…

Last night, I ordered my piece from Modern Bird Studios.

And I picked this photo.

When trying to pick colors, I fell in love with Black Plum, and then thought how nice a gray would look with it…and then realized that those were pretty much the same colors Mandy from Harper’s Happenings chose. Whoops. So, I stuck with the Black Plum and chose to do natural wood as the other “color.”

My work of art hath been ordered.

It just dawned on me this morning how cool it would be to get a tattoo of the final product. (Actually, I was thinking how cool it would be for the hubs to get a tattoo of the final product, but I digress.)

Anyway, I CAN’T WAIT for it to be done!

Be sure to check out Modern Bird to order a work of art of your own!

six months + six dresses

Category retail therapy, six dresses + six months

Lacey at Perks of Being a Jap posted that she’s joining in the fun being hosted by KylaRoma.com and is participating in six months + six dresses:

What better way to re-vamp my summer wardrobe than by making it a challenge? So I’m resolved to buy (& show you) one new or thrifted dress every month until the fall comes around.

I’m joining as well. I should try to attempt more thrifted dresses. But I have the patience of a five year old and last about 3 minutes in most thrift stores before I bail. I’ll give it the old college try.

Anyway, I’ll hopefully be buying a dress in Vegas to show off. As said by David Puddy “What does the Gap in Rome have that you can’t find in the GAP in NYC?” I’ll have you know it’s way more exciting to purchase ANYTHING in Vegas. Even if the Anthropologie has the same inventory, I BOUGHT IT IN VEGAS, DAMMIT.

Speaking of Vegas, I’ll be there in roughly 13 hours. Pants? They’ve been peed in.

Since I’m on a watch kick…
