tuesday randoms

I'm about four hundred and eleventy percent POSITIVE that the hardest part of blogging is coming up with a title. For realz, just sat here for a good 6 minutes and "tuesday randoms" is the best I could do. 

Sorry 'bout that.

Also, it's freezing in our house so therefor I'm trying to type with frozen fat sausage fingers.

- Presley and I headed to Tuscaloosa on Saturday.  I went to the quad to tailgate with family while my Mom watched Presley.  I hate, with every fiber in my body, parking for the quad.  I get sweaty, jittery, nervous, anxious, and turn into the worlds worst driver. And if you honk at me? I get super pissed and will stop my car AND CUT YOU.  

So it's usually best for me to just park really far away and walk. Which is exactly what I did.  Then I learned about the trolleys?! Where have they been all my life? I paid 1 bone and rode that bad boy all the way back to my car on the way back.  Also fun? Stepping in dog poop and not realizing it until you're on a jam packed trolley.  BOOM!

-We were going to stay and hang out on Sunday but then my Mom woke up with the stomach bug so P and I hightailed it back home at 7:30am.  Her DVD player stopped working so it was a long 45 minute drive for me.  I bet the cars passing by thought I was having a seizure but I was actually singing and dancing in hopes to keep my youngin' entertained.  Seriously though, what did kids to before DVD players? We must've been super annoying!

- I need a hair trim so bad it's ridonkulous.  I would bet money that if you looked out your window right now you could see my dead ends all the way from here.  You'd think that having a sister-in-law that's a hair stylist would mean that I have the most awesomespice hair ever.  Except that I never have time to go down there to let her do it.  This weekend though, it's on. 

- I've developed a slight obsession with making Presley's school lunches.  Bento box lunches are currently taking over my life and I'm sure her teachers think I am a loon.  I send enough food to feed a dern village!  

- Speaking of bento boxes, I wandered into an Asian Supermarket yesterday in hopes of finding some cool bento box accessories.  I stuck out like a sore thumb in there and was slightly amazed at all of the stuff they have in there.  It smelled like licorice though so I didn't last very long.  I also didn't find any cool hard boiled egg molders.  I KNOW!

- I've been reading a ton of blogs who are participating in The Nester's "31 Days" shenanigans.  I thought about it but then realized that the only thing I can consistently do for 31 days is not shave my legs or not wash my hair.  Definitely not blog worthy tasks and I also think Adam would divorce me. So instead, I'm just going to follow other peoples posts :)

Happy Tuesday, y'all!

  1. First of all I hate long car rides. My lo is too young to be entertained by a DVD player and really only lies when I sing twinkle twinkle or the abc song... I'm sure I look ridiculous as I sing them over and over and over... Summer with no ac and rolled down windows was very embarrassing :s

    I've been checking out some of the 31 days bloggers, thought about doing it but I too have nothing worthy to contribute lol

  2. I can't tell you how many times a day we sing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, and Wheels On The Bus...OMG! Kill me now! Rest assured that it gets better once they are old enough to focus on the DVD player!

    1. We would be in trouble if we lived close (although it'd be awesome!) between Presley's attitude and Gwen's "aggressive tendencies" ! HA!

  4. OK, 1st, those pictures at the end are adorable!
    2nd, I totally feel you about the car rides with kids. E and I did our first mini road trip the other day and i had to plan it perfect, complete with snacks, milk, nap time, and youtube " 10 little indians" on repeats. Definitely no fun.

    1. We usually try to time our trips with nap time but it doesn't always work out that way. And Adam thinks we can make a 10 hour trip to FL bearable...HA!

    1. I got P's from Pottery Barn Kids...it was a little pricey but by far the nicest one I've seen. They're hard to find in stores.
