Things I Love Thursday // 3.20.14

  • This sweatshirt from Private Party that I find so funny 
  • That despite the fact that she was probably suffering from severe food poisoning and had to make 13 trips in 8 hours, my 8YO monkeygirl makes it to the toilet every time ~ What a trooper! She never cried, complained, or gave up. In fact, she was sweet, apologetic, and so mature about all that puke. 
  • Tall socks with boots + a dress 
  • The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty ~ I really enjoyed this book and finished it in record-time. I found it to be an original, well-written, and thought-provoking story about relationships and morality.
  • My new pig napkin holder ~ I found this on clearance at Michaels the other day and knew that I could find something fun to do with him. For now, he holds the napkins. Perhaps in the future, he will hold candy, flowers, socks, or lipgloss. I'm not sure. He's so versatile! 
  • The reaction from my family after my epic fail at our traditional and annual St. Patrick's Day dinner of corned beef brisket, cabbage, and potatoes ~ My only guess is that I accidentally boiled the $hit out of the brisket within my quiet dutch oven instead of gently simmering it--which is what I thought I had been doing all afternoon. ?? (This was NOT my first time at-bat with corned beef brisket!) In any event, it was the texture of beef jerky and my sweet family reminded me that it's, "the thought that counts." 
  • The way this sweet and cheerful bouquet was born from the three "growers bunches" that my youngest picked out at the grocery store for me 
  • How the forgotten, still-fresh, and unused half-head of cabbage left over in the refrigerator prompted me into a scouting mission that resulted in an unplanned and thorough cleaning of the fridge
  • My new highlights ~ Upon seeing my hair pulled back in a ponytail for the first time, the littlest one sweetly declared, "I really like your new stripes, Mommy!"
