Wandom Wednesday!

I was going to do a Wordless Wednesday today, until I realized I did a picture post yesterday, which would kind of make it a little obvious that my smooshy pregnant brain has come to a screeching halt in the area of Creative Blog Topics. I find that what few brain cells are left generally gravitate towards posts that I like to refer as Copout Posts.

Like today's post! Yippee!

Random Updates, a la Katie.

*I recently purchased dry shampoo at Target. I've heard over and over that this stuff is the way to go and seeing as I am unable (Or unwilling? Because I choose not to wake up early?) to wash my hair every day, this seemed like something worth trying. And it was five bucks. Anyone tried it before??

*Naomi is kicking all of the time and I love it. She is also wedged up under my ribs, over my lungs, and wrapped around my esophagus, simultaneously bruising, choking, and suffocating me. And giving me heartburn. I'd like to think it's her way of giving me a hug. Thanks, chickadee!

*While watching What Not To Wear a while ago, I heard the lovely make-up artist recommend light pink loose powder blush. I typically wear a light foundation/moisturizer, but no blush. Blush scares me. But, I decided to give it a try. So, while perusing the make-up aisles at Target (again! Target!), I found some delightful Sonia Kashuk light pink loose blush. I love it. Thank you, Carmindy.

*Caleb is talking all the time. This is delightful. It is also delightful to see which mannerisms he has picked up from Yours Truly. When he runs into something, he says "Whoa!" in this little high-pitched astonished voice. He also says "Wow!" in the same voice, this time with a bit of inflection, when he sees something cool. He can also throw his arms up in disbelief. You can tell he has had me in his face since birth.

*Did you know Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches come in Peanut Butter?? THEY DO.

*When I set the table for dinner, I also flip on the iPod. I love having quiet background music playing while we eat. I recently discovered Andy McKee, an amazing acoustic guitarist, and I can't get enough of his music (his song, For My Father, brings me to tears). I am a sucker for anything acoustic. No effects. Just real music and real talent. Seriously, Google that song. You won't be disappointed!

*I need a manicure.

*This post is set to publish at midnight. After I am finished typing it, I am going to crawl into bed with either a bowl of cereal (loving Cascadian Farms honey nut o's right now) or with one of those ice cream sandwiches I mentioned earlier.

*Probably the ice cream sandwich.

*It soothes the throat when Naomi's hugs get just a tad tight. Especially after a big meal.

*Like dinner. Where we listened to amazing background music.

Have a lovely day, friends.


  1. What brand is the dry shampoo at Target?? I've been looking for one there and haven't found one yet. I do love dry shampoo though; although I think baby powder works just about the same (and when my roots are grown out a tad too much, it lightens them a bit. HA!)

    I love Cub's mannerisms. Sophia said "HEY!!" yesterday...I laughed out loud it was so funny...she listens to me way too much. ;)

  2. I used to use baby powder in between hair washing... But I've been converted to the dry shampoo at Sephora. You spray it on your hair and it works 1,000X better then baby powder. It also somehow adds body? It's amazing. It certainly costs more then $5, but it saves me time and that is $$$.

  3. Oooh, thanks for the introduction to Andy McKee - beautiful. I've got him on Pandora now & I love it!

  4. How fun that Caleb already has your mannerisms. I'm sure Naomi will have them even more so since she's a girl. (-:


  5. (The brand was Tressemme. I'm not even going to pretend that I know how to spell that correctly! I haven't tried it yet ... tomorrow is the day! I'll let you know if it worked or not!)

  6. Isn't hearing your little one talk the most adorable thing EVER!!!! It's so amazing to watch them grow and learn new things every day!!!

    and thanks for the tip on Andy McKee, LOVE HIM ALREADY!!!!

  7. Ice cream and Pepcid - there's your cure ;)

  8. You found the dry shampoo at Target? Where was it hiding?? Hope you enjoyed the ice-cream. :)
