10 things


This week was just one of those normal weeks. Parks, Tantrums, Toddler School, Coffee Dates, Nap Times, Non-Napping Nap times, Repeat. Sometimes….weeks are just weeks. At one point, I thought I was going to have to start actually exercising or something crazy like that just for something new to happen. Clearly that didn’t go down so I’m stuck here thinking of the most random things…..

1. My favorite thing to do on the weekend is wake up early, complete a task and go back to bed. Pre-M this was an almost every Saturday thing. Wake. Breakfast. Sleep. Anyone else on this?

2. A few years ago, I needed a solid uninterrupted hour to get ready for the day. I surprised myself this week by going from shower to car in 20 minutes. Times are a changing.

3. Pepsi is my soda of choice. I was so happy to read that I’m no longer the only one!

4. I rotate store obsessions like no other but right now, it’s all heart eyes for Madewell.

5. When we moved into our new abode my hair was suddenly a grease pit. Honestly, it was just so gross and wet to the touch and NOTHING I did changed that. This shampoo rocked my hair world and now I hoard at least one spare under my bathroom cabinet at all times.

6. Will a houseplant ever survive around me?Heeellllpppp!

7. My friend Lacie and I met on a blind mom date. Yup! Two of our mutual friends set us up with some well thought out Facebook messages. A Nordstrom Cafe meet up with two three month olds and the rest is history….

8. My favorite food group is and always will be chocolate. Mixed with something salty and boom…I’m a happy camper.

9. I never wear eyeshadow. On a rare night out it finds it’s way to my face. Otherwise, no thanks. And on the same note, can we talk about false lashes? I just can’t. My eyelids feel heavy and I look like my eyes are drooping when I wear them. What’s the trick here?

10. In high school I wore a Harvard sweatshirt around like a boss. I was certain my B average would award me Harvard entrance.  Hummm…..


12 Things


|| I freaked out {like obsessively thought about it all day long} when I pained this wall green. Several times, I nearly grabbed the roller and drop cloth and painted it back to brown.

|| And now it’s grown on me and I kinda’ love that my house has a little personality.

|| Laundry is my nemesis. By the time I actually fold and put away the ‘last load’, it’s time to do it again.

|| Starting my day without coffee is just unheard of. I’m not sure if it’s unhealthy at this point or just an understanding that I still want people to hang around me that I let this continue.

|| I can’t hang things {pictures, paintings, etc} to save my life. I was allowed to hang one painting in the bathroom. Got it up. Turned around. It fell.

|| So now, I get to leave all the hanging to my husband who I’m sure is oh so grateful that his most recent project included a gallery wall.

|| Roller Coasters and rides that have a sudden drop freak me out but I love {love} all Disney theme parks.

|| I would like to think that I’m ‘green’ or a ‘hipster’ but my husband assures me that I’m not.

|| As is shown by my intense need to live within reasonable driving distance to a shopping center {preferably one that includes an Anthropologie and Nordstrom}

|| Watching a good Kardashians or other smut TV episode is always my first choice when Ky is out of town.

|| I complain about the weather in WA about 3/4 of the year.

|| But really, I don’t think we will ever move.

I would love to hear your quirks {mostly so I don’t feel alone in crazy land}. Leave them in the comments section below.

Enjoy! Melissa
