Your monthly gift?

I'm all for practical gift-giving, but I draw the line at this:

{thanks to kim for making me laugh out loud with this find}

Hello, new chair

Call me crazy, but this well-worn chair I came across at a local antique store was begging for me to buy it for photography use.  And use it, I shall: 

These are just test shots, but I'm very excited to see how it'll work out when my kids are actually dressed appropriately and somewhat cooperative. 

So, when pigs fly, right?

Marshmallows, check. Gin, checkcheckcheck.

We had a small s'mores get-together at my friend Holly's house. 

And aside from plain, strawberry and chocolate marshmallows to choose from, Holly made sure the true essentials of a s'mores party were included...

..lime, gin, tonic and ice.  Party on, moms.  Party on.

So wrong, yet so right

It's no secret I get the heebie-jeebies from dolls, but I always get a good laugh when friends send me hilarious doll-related finds and say, "I saw this and thought of you!" 

Like the following from EarthSeaWarrior:

Or this from ReshapeStudio:

Creepy, hilarious and if it wasn't for my fear that these objects would come to life and stab me in my sleep, I'd totally own them.

Poppin' fresh

During the holidays, I usually say, "I have everything I want and need, so please no gifts." 

I will not be saying that again until this arrives on my doorstep:

This foam Doughboy:

A) Stands about four feet tall

B) Is a display and not for general sale

C) Must be mine

In grad school, I practically ate triple my weight in Pillsbury products just to mail in enough points toward a free Doughboy mug, while inadvertently turning myself into a Doughboy at the same time. 

I still say: Well worth the mug.

But God loves frosting

We were at a child's birthday party the other day and this kid below (who we don't know) doesn't say a peep throughout the entire bowling party...until Waverly innocently sat down next to her for cake and the little girl says in a completely low, creepy voice:

"God hates birthdays.  It's true."

Sensing that this girl was dead-serious and kinda scary, Wavey gave her the "what the flip?" face and then slowly said, "Oookkkaaaaayyy."

I nearly died laughing.  It's true.

The opposite of "gruntled"

Seven more long, loooooong days until my stinkin' cast comes off.  I've decided to share my feelings about it in line chart form:
