(Belated) Thursday Things

Thursday Things…a day late. It’s just been that kind of week, y’all. It’s been an incredibly busy workweek and insane parenting week. I’ve just got three words for you: toliet water puddle. I know. Enough said. Let’s kick off our Thursday Friday Things: –Trader Joe’s find: this delicious mix of cherry+plums. SO YUMMY.   -Just started reading Little Women (I know, where have I been, right?) and already love it.

Didn’t it feel like Friday was supposed to be like, three days ago? Hello, longest week ever. My Thursday has consisted of eating nearly an entire pizza by myself while nursing an endless loop of the earworm-y tunes of Little Baby BumĀ on repeat in my head. hbu? via GIPHY I’ve also been doing loads of laundry, trying to get work done, and undoing the damage of two mischievous twins. I’ve

Isn’t summer just the best? I mean, besides it being as hot as the inside of a volcano (like, people are actually baking cookies in their car), I love summer. Texas boasts beautiful summer cotton candy sunsets and reaaaallllly good ice cream. So it’s basically the best. On this Thursday Things, I am going to share my favorite finds from the Nordstrom Sale….KIDDING. Totally kidding. I am so NOT that

What’s up, friends?? It’s naptime, so I’m hustlin’ to get this post up while it’s still Thursday, and while things are still relatively quiet. I hope you all have had a fantastic week. If not, tomorrow is Friday, y’all! We’re almost there. Phew. My Thursday Things for this week: Anyone else feel like they can finally exhale? All 12 boys were rescued from the cave in Thailand and I feel

So. This post is a little late. It’s more like a Friday Things. But today consisted of nursing one son’s bloody chin and cleaning up my other son who decided to claw through his diaper and smear poop on himself. I wish I was joking. But consider that my excuse for the delay. LOL @ my life. Now, instead of drowning my stress in Blue Bell, I’m wearing mud on

Hello to my adoring fans! I knew you’d come! Okay, or just anyone who stumbles on my site. That’s probably the more likely scenario. Either way, you’re all welcome! I’m just here, munching on another huge chunk of butter-heavy banana bread — it does not last long in our house — and contemplating the mysteries of life. Not really.

Hey, y’all! Happy first (official) day of summer. I mean, it’s felt like summer in Austin since OH, MARCH (!!!) but whatever. I guess the furnace-of-Hades-level temperatures are justified now that it’s actually summer. (I promise I wasn’t a theater major. Just naturally dramatic.) Anyway, this week has been both eventful and awesome. (I mean, not in terms of current events…but I’ll leave that conversation for the comment section of

Well, if this hasn’t been the longest week of my life. And today, one of my twins bit the other twin — HARD — and it was a toliet-cleaning day, so you could say things are going swimmingly today. Currently, T has his hand lodged in a box of PB Crunch and N is drinking water and gargling it loudly. Ahhh, the beauty of twin life. Always noises. Always messes.

Hey, y’all. It’s that final, sometimes-agonizing last stretch to the weekend. Let’s cheer each other to the finish line, mmkay? Right now, I’m watching my twins tear up the living room, ripping up Uno cards, repeatedly pressing the countdown timer on the Catchphrase, and sticking plastic spoons into Dad’s stationary bike spokes. I’m ignoring the chaos — for my sanity. As long as they’re alive, right? I’m kidding. They’re fine.
