Randomly Unrelated

I officially live in Minnesota now. The only times I have been farther from home than this are the two times I went to New York. I've got a good six months to make Utah seem way more heaven-like than I thought it was while I lived there.

I try to like Reese's every year when I get them in my stocking, but I still. don't. like them.  I don't think they are disgusting, but they just aren't amazing. My mouth must be broken.

If you gave me baby clothes, I love you. 

I don't understand how anyone could hate Chitty-chitty bang bang. It is the first movie I put in to distract Mav so I could go take care of some things around the house. (I usually try to get him to play, or take him to the other room when the television is on because I want an active child, but I REALLY needed to brush my hair.) 

Nail polish stays on your big toe far longer than any other nail. I am glad my cousin Kayla go married on September 8, so I could still have a nice hot pink shade on mine. 

I was nursing Mav today (sorry if this is TMI) and I had the blinds open to the great big windows in our apartment. Apparently a handy guy had to fix something right in front of our windows. It is good that I have learned the art of stealth. 

I probably won't close the blinds in the future, so don't walk by unless you text me first.

I get to hang things on my bare apartment walls today. I enjoy making things look pretty.

Don't tell my children or my students, but I break rules

I break the "never stay in the same clothes for more than 24 hour rule. Sometimes you wake up, and that white Hanes V'neck looks just as pristine when it did when you put it on last night. Can't justify putting it in the Laundry yet. Besides, if I wear it today, I will have four left to stretch through out the rest of the week. Love 5-packs.

I sometimes daily break the rule that says don't eat after 5 or 6 in the evening. What better time is there to enjoy a scrumptious something than at 10 o'clock when the baby is sleeping and you are secretly watching America's Next Top Model? (You clearly keep the remote in your hand so you can act like you are just flipping through channels when someone else may walk in.) 

I break the rule that says you should comfort your baby every time they start crying.

I break the rule that says you should let your baby to cry themselves to sleep. I am somewhere between the previous rule and this rule. 

Sidenote: Who writes baby rules? Because they are ALL over the place. 

I TOTALLY break the rule that says girls with big hips should not wear skinny jeans. I wear them and I love them and I feel amazing in them. 

I am trying to break the rule about all women having blatant insecurities, but am still working on it. I will get there by golly.
