Bits and Pieces - A truly random post

Hi lovers and friends.  How are ya?  I have about a bajillion posts in my head that I’d love to get out there.  I just need about 2 more hours in the day.  I don’t think that’s too much to ask for, right?  I kinda want to do that accent vlog.  I love hearing everyone’s voices/accents.  So fun.  I, however, cringe at my voice on camera, so I’m not too sure about it…

I did 4 things today that made me want to barf.  3 of those things were scheduling meetings with people at work.  Kind of important people.  I have never done these things before and I didn’t know what to say, how to schedule conference rooms, etc. and I felt like a dumbass asking.  But I asked and all was fine.  The fourth was drop $400 on 25 digital images of Cooper from the photographer we have used since he was born.  My parents paid for half (or honestly we wouldn’t have paid that), but makes my stomach drop just thinking about it.  I don’t care who you are, that’s a lot of money for some images.  I will not go into my schpeel about this subject.  I will not. I will not.

I realized today that I haven’t told a single person at this awesome outfit I saw.  Y’all, it was epic.  Cooper and I were leaving Lowe’s a few weeks ago, and this woman was walking over to her big ‘ol truck.  She was wearing acid-washed jeans.  And a matching acid-washed denim halter top.  With a corseted back!!!!!!!!!  A corseted, acid-washed, denim halter top!!  And a baseball cap, clearly, because what else would you wear with that ensemble?  I wish I had taken a photo.

Cooper starts daycare tomorrow.  We call it school.  Because it makes me feel better.  I have never been sad about being a working mom (for the most part), but I have been crying like every day at work for the past couple of weeks!  I don’t know who I am.  I know it is good for him, he will make friends and learn stuff.  But it still makes me sad.  Mostly I’d like to skip over the first few days or weeks that it takes him to get used to it and skip to the time when he is used to it.  And likes it.  Hopefully.  Also, I want to take pictures of him on his first day in his room at school and stuff, but I also don’t want to linger, so I’m not sure what I’ll do…  I will say that Sunday when we left him in the nursery at church, he went right to the worker and walked off to play without a second look back at us, and he didn’t cry the whole time, just had a few almost-crying episodes, so that made me feel a little better.

I went clothes shopping this weekend.  For a few specific pieces.  What did I come home with?  Nothing I intended on getting or even remotely close to it!!  This always happens to me!!  I think that I am officially going to be a strictly online shopper.  It’s easier to keep myself in line.  If only every store/site had free shipping and returns!  Also, if anyone knows where I can get black skinny JEANS, please tell me.  I want actual jeans.  Not jeggings.  Even Gap’s Always Skinny black jeans are more jeggings than jeans.  It’s not a good look on me and not what I’m going for.  Can we get off the jegging obsession?  It would be great if jeggings were available in addition to regular skinny jeans, but it seems like every skinny jean is actually jeggings now and I don’t like it.  If you love jeggings, rock on sister, but my big ass thighs don’t look good in that much spandex!  Whew.  Clearly I feel strongly about this.

I did buy some slim cropped black work pants at Gap (as a substitute for the jeans) and I freaking LOVEEEE them!!  They are awesome.  I want to wear them every day.

In case you didn’t know, I like Gap.  Obvs.

I want a new name for my blog.  I have never liked this one, but I changed it quickly for some personal reasons and nothing I did like was available.  I am not creative enough to come up with something witty.  I need help.  I also want it to be 2 column instead of 3.  There’s too much wasted space on the left and it makes all of my posts seem super long. 

And on that note, I’ll wrap it up so this doesn’t seem super long.  Maybe I’ll post something of substance instead of rambling on about nothing.  Like how I’m doing on freezing meals, or perhaps, some recipes we’ve tried with that!  Oh the anticipation!

Maybe I can help you out with a new blog look? :) I know how to widen and do all that stuff ;)

ps: wish I could justify gap but gahh...its so pricey! I do the gap outlet though!

If you go to the movies with me this weekend, I will widen your blog and teach you how to do it yourself. ;)

Good luck tomorrow with Cooper and school! I'm sure he will be excited to play with the other kiddos.

Loved this post! :) I love to know what people are really thinking!!

I think you are going to shock yourself tomorrow. I tend to always over worry and then when the time comes I think to myself, "self, that wasn't so bad." Keep us posted! I know it will go great!

I havent heard of an accent vlog! haha. Do it.
Jeggings or skinny jeans or anything of that nature would look good on my thunder thighs.
I think Cooper will LOVE school. Playing with other kids and being social sounds like something up his ally. The school year started here this week and more kids are at A's daycare now...and I dont know how I like that. I think she loves all the activity and watching them but now she wont get all that attention she has been getting. Might be good for her :) I will get back to you on that.

I hope the "school" drop off goes smoothly! I know the first day we took Lizzy was traumatic (for me) but she did so well. And she LOVES it!! She gets so smiley when she sees the lady that is there in the morning, and she is smiling when I go pick her up. And she is OBSESSED with other kids now...its so good for them socially. It makes leaving her there everyday for 9 hours a little easier.
I like the idea of the accent vlog too, and I'm sure (the three) people who actually read my blog would love my Minnesooootan accent and I don't like myself on video either! :)

I'm sorry you are having a tough time with the transition to daycare! I'm sure you will appreciate you nice long weekend with him!

I would totally take a few more hours in the day.

ANNND I'm over my blog name too. but I can't change it now.. because I've already done that too many times. ugh. If I could have it all back I would have made it, "It's Funny Because it's Real." I love that name for a blog and we are always saying that at work.

also... what the heck are people thinking wearing shit like that? I mean people are just so odd. but it is pretty entertaining! ha

When a post starts off with "I did 4 things today that made me want to barf," you know it's going to be good. :) Do the accent vlog--all the cool kids are doing it! And I never come home with what I intended to buy when I go clothes shopping. However, I never come home empty handed. Michael loves it--harhar.
