Sniffles, sneezes and snot aside, we had a great weekend. My homegirl Natty Lite came over and had a nice, relaxing dinner with The Hubs, The Trips and I (and by "relaxing" I mean "not at all"). Scarlett was snatching pieces of bread off her plate while Natty wasn't looking, the boys were both screaming "COCONUTS!" at the tops of their lungs - we don't know - it's a new thing..., and we had to listen to the "Buddy Elf song" - aka Pennies From Heaven - about 879 times. Then we settled down on the couch and watched Due Date AND I STAYED AWAKE FOR THE WHOLE THING. Hollaaaa!!! Can I just say that movie renewed and refreshed my crush on this guy?
Homina homina. Dude is hot, hilarious, and hot. The trifecta of H words. I think The Hubs may have a crush on him too now, cuz after Natty left I fell asleep on the couch and when I woke up the Hubs was watching Iron Man. I KNEW IT.
It wasn't all sunshine and roses though this weekend. One craptastic thing that happened? Snow. AGAIN. It's almost APRIL for the love of the Heat Miser. Enough.
Let's talk about sex, baby....errrr...another positive weekend note. Another good thing that happened this weekend? I figured out when the hell The Real Housewives of OC is on and set my DVR for the series recording. Now I can participate in a timely manner in this lady's heee-larious recaps. Thank the hebbins those Miami beyotches are almost over, cause they are taking up valuable space on my DVR. You know, for shows like The Hills, which I maaaay have just recently started watching (way to be current, Shan) because I am currently in the midst of a deep homesick longing for Laguna, so anything close to Laguna scratches that itch, so to speak. Anyhoooo, back to Miami - was that season a throwaway or what? Is anyone even watching it besides me? SGM????? The one I can't stand the most? Cristy. Ugh. If she gives the camera one more "I'm so cute big giant toothy smile and head bobble" I will vom.
See what I mean?!! VOM.
Puh-LEEEZE tell me I don't look like the head bobble in that photo above. Or not. Whatever.
Good stuff? Free perfume! I have no idea why, but Elle sent me a bottle of Calyx perfume this weekend. No note with it, I don't know if it was a gift with subscription or what, but me likey. It has a nice initial burst of grapefruit, then settles immediately into something softer and more flowery. I couldn't stop smelling myself. Great scent for spring and summer.
Bad? The Boyz in the Hood STILL REFUSE TO GO TO SLEEP when we put them in bed. As we speak I am listening to one of them whine incessantly upstairs. It is MADDENING, I tell you. They are almost three. Scarlett is SOOOOOO easy to put to bed. The boys? Not so much. If anyone else has experience dealing with this and has a successful solution (other than one that involves a box of wine - already tried that), I am dying to hear it.
Good? Self-tanner - IN MODERATION. I don't know why tanned flab looks so much better, but it do. It do indeed. Aaaaiiight, homeys, das alls I gots for now. I am going to go smack someone upside the head and then down another box of wine. KIDDING - geez! I do NOT smack my kids upside the head.
