Awkward-Awesome Thursday

Can you tell I have tons of time on my hands?
My blog posts increase with boredom free time.
 Thanks to high school algebra, I can tell you it's a direct correlation.


*Have you guys seen the Citibank commercial- the one where this couple talks about having a great time using their Citibank points, blah blah. But, then you see the lady climbing solo on this:

 Does anyone else find this PROFOUNDLY dangerous???

*I've watched the same pair of shoes on eBay for the last 3 weeks, each time missing the auction. And each time, messaging the seller, giving some cheeky response as to why I missed it. Each time promising the seller "if you re-list it, I will buy it"..whoopsie...

* No matter if I have one day off or or two weeks, as in this case, my diet on a non-working day is AWFUL. RANDOM. I mean, I start off strong, but quickly stumble throughout the day. What possesses me to eat the things I eat? Case in point, let's evaluate my caloric intake today, shall we: small bowl of oatmeal+ blackberries and turkey sausage, six Mrs. Fields thumbprint cookies, whole grain cereal dipped in butter, 3 Tootsie Rolls, Campbell's Chunky Noodle Soup, another round of cereal and butter, a small baking sheet of seasoned fries with Ranch dressing, and a can of mushrooms . Now I feel weird telling you that. Perhaps its a vitamin deficiency....

*Also on a day off, you will find me frequently in some sort of T-shirt and PJ/ sweatpant combo with....a pair of obnoxious shoes. Wedges, heels, summer sandals, whatever I fancy. Just me, and my shoes, obnoxiously snacking...


* Gosh, I can already tell. Just Dance for Xbox is going to change my life. Watch out Black Eyed Peas, I've now got skilllzzz.

*Speaking of shoes and days off, I have the BEST tip ever. Do you have those pesky new leather shoes that are a bit snug, or that you know are gonna rub blisters? Heels, boots, flats. Wet them. Yup, put them on and dunk them in water and then let them dry to your feet. I will commonly take a shower with my new ballet flats on, and then do my chores around the house. You're welcome.

* What is all this buzz about the book series, The Hunger Games? I see the hype about how great the books are, and now there is a movie coming out? It looks great from the trailer- I might have to check this out.

* Man, I'm really digging glasses. The big chunky kind. Ive had them since the 3rd grade, and just now really embracing them. I'm on the hunt for some like this:

Merry Christmas

Hey friends-

I'll be on the road for the next few days-
Just wanting to wish you and your family a Merry Christmas!
I can't think of a better way to celebrate than with Jimmy (ohh, just LOVE him!)

Merry Christmas!

December Birchbox

 Ho Ho Ho- Guess what came in the mail!

It's December Birchbox time and here are the goods:

* Benefit Cosmetics - The POREfessional
* Harvey Prince Ageless Perfume
*Jouer Moisturizing Lip Gloss -Birchbox Pink
L'oreal Paris- Mythic Oil
*Prep Show Stoppers Designer Fashion Tape
* Recharge-Eboost Energy Booster

Another Great Box!
LOVE the pink lipgloss, and the perfume smells ok, too.
 I think I'm most excited about the Benefit Porefessional cream, even though large pores are not a big problem of mine. Do you use Benefit Cosmetics? I love the brand, as my make-up is half Benefit/half Clinique.

I've been on hiatus, friends. Yes, I've missed you, too. While I have no real post in mind and warning you of the randomness, let's  "ketchup", shall we?


My little-bloggy turned one... uhhh a few days ago. A whole year of writing and rants- I still can't believe it's been that long. I've had fun writing, thus far, and am glad I've stuck with it. High five for dedication!  A special thanks to you for reading- and giving back your humorous feedback!


I'll tell you a little secret.
Don't tell though.

I've not put up even ONE holiday decoration  or bought ANY Christmas presents.

I know.
Scrooge just can't seem to get it together.
I love looking at everyone else's beautiful trees, ornaments, menorahs, snowmen and such.
And usually, I am all over it. But, alas, we are bare over here.
I'm not sure what it is, it feels like I am waiting on something??
Perhaps I'll try to work on it this weekend.. Perhaps...

What DO I love, however??
This HUGE free tutorial kit of some fab DIY decorations/ideas from Jones Design Company.
Man, she's got some lovely stuff..

I made a few things from it last year.

And when I actually DO get around to presents, I am going to go back and grab her gift tags. So cute!


Got the best little email saying my December Birchbox has been shipped, and on it's way!Just love the little pink package in the mail!


Here are a few precious things that I got to hear this week, at work:

* Mrs. Lindsey, I know how to brush my teeth, now..(I would hope so, you are in the 3rd grade)
* Mrs. Lindsey, I wear an 18-20 in pants now. I am a real grown-up boy. What size do you wear?
* Mrs. Lindsey, I know what sound a peacock makes.. (Ummmm, what then??)

My favorite:
 A group of older kids were working on inferencing. I read the prompt:
"We all got down the board. Mary rolled the dice. Janet collected two rental properties. Dave passed GO and collected $200"
I asked them: a) what were they doing, and b) what key words help you to know

One boy wipes his brow, nervously looking at his teammates. With a whisper, he answers:


Black polish is my favorite in the winter
