TGI Good Friday. Here’s what’s going on in my world…

(1) I flicked off a chicken transport truck on the way to work today. Those little chicks looked so sad.

(2) I dressed like a Christmas gift this morning. Ooops. I’m wearing a bright green dress and red sweater. I’ve had no less than two people point it out.

(4) My kids attended our neighborhood Easter Egg hunt yesterday carrying Halloween baskets. What else is a Jewish mother supposed to do?

Have a wonderful weekend, Easter, Passover, Spring Break and whatever else comes your way (seriously hoping it’s some sunshine).

And My Favorite Facebook Status Updates During The Oscars Go To…

You watched, right? There were funny parts and boring parts, but to me the most hilarious moments were the comments my friends made on Facebook.  So in no particular order, I present to you my favorite status updates that were posted during The Oscars (drum roll please)

85 Years of the Oscar: The Official History of the Academy Awards

(1)  Anne Hathaway is wearing an apron and it’s cold in the kitchen.
(2)  Someone better have a nip slip soon. Pretty lame so far dudes.
(3)  @Ben Affleck It was truly inspiring to hear how you overcame your struggles of being engaged to Jennifer Lopez and making many millions of dollars doing something that you love only to become overexposed in the media. You are truly a shining beacon for us all. Keep fighting the good fight Ben.
(4)  I am so gonna rake it in selling my copy of Gigli on eBay now.
(5)  I really like Nicole Kidman’s new face and teeth.
(6)  Animated bear puppet had better pronunciation than Travolta.
(7)   Barbara Streisand looks like a gelfling.
So there you have it. Proof that I have friends that are funny. Well Facebook friends that are funny. Really I just friend request anyone I come across. What were your hilarious thoughts about The Oscars?

 

 

I foresee a Carnival Cruise Groupon in the near future. Right next to toe fungus removal deal.

 

I can honestly say I’ve never had any desire to go on a cruise. And now? Well never ever ever.  Even in the dead of winter I’d actually rather walk through the (non-existent Atlanta snow) or rain than be trapped on a motion-sickness causing carnival. Wow, I sound bitter.

Because we have many wintery rainy days ahead, I’m totally going to buy myself some SLUGS fleece boot liners from With the Rain.
Super cute right? And I’m pretty sure With the Rain will give you a 100% guarantee that her SLUGS will never leave you stranded in the middle of the ocean having to wait three hours to eat an onion sandwich. Note: If you’re going on a cruise I recommend not watching the footage and interviews from the Carnival Cruise incident.

So my son needs to bring a shoebox to school tomorrow. I have no shoeboxes. This means I need to go and buy new shoes today, correct?

I’m doing it for the kids—truth be told, my son’s future depends on my new shoes. Heh. And since I’m motherofthefreakingyear (self-nominated five years in a row) I’m going to buy some for the kids too. 

Fortunately Me and Reekie makes these adorably cozy slippers (that I’m hoping arrive in shoe boxes) for both adults and kids.

And just like that we all have cozy feet, a shoebox and a new place to shop. Time to put my cape on because I’m off to save the world with some more intense shoe shopping. Thankyouverymuch.

I think I’m going to give up complaining for Lent.

I know, I know. I’m Jewish. I don’t celebrate Lent. But hey, I support all religions and I really think I should stop complaining.  Take today, for example. It’s raining. Hard. And I want an afternoon Starbucks . See? Complaining.

So in an effort to be more positive, I’m going to think about Spring. The season of awesomeness. And all my positive thoughts landed me at After Shower Shop — home of the most fantastic spring dresses around. And they’re totally affordable people! Which means you can buy more than one.

OK, so I’ve been doing some thinking since I started writing this post. I don’t think I’ll give up complaining for Lent after all. Why? Because I sort of excel at it.

Work. Work. Work. Sleep. Work. Coffee. Work. Eat. Work.

That’s a summary of my life these past few weeks. Not that I’m complaining but it sort of broke my heart when I was skyping with my son from the office last night and he said “come home soon mommy.” (I know, a real tearjerker, right?)

Luckily, I found these adorable bow tie dog collars from Silly Buddy to turn my frown upside down. Seriously people. I. can’t. stand it. These are so cute, they could make even the stinkiest dog loveable (ahem Karma).

Etsy is to Me What Porn is to Truckers on a Long Haul

There I said it. Now that I got that off my chest, I can continue.

The season of white pants is over (not that it ever really started for me) and sweaters are still a couple of months away for those of us that live down South. Fortunately, there are these little inventions called scarves to spice up my wardrobe until I get to pull out my winter wear.

Swak Shop is what happens when awesomeness and comfy cozy come together for an illicit love affair (so poetic, right)?

Is it a hat? Is it a scarf? Does it matter? Nope. I just want one – pronto. Actually I want one of everything from Swak Shop.

And while we’re sort of on the subject, can someone please tell me the difference between knitting and crocheting? I’m a little low in the IQ department.

Hubba-Hubba

I love clothes almost as much as I love food – and that’s saying a lot. But I sort of feel like they’re all starting to look the same. Yeah GAP, I’m talking to you – but not to you Anthropologie. I love you. Anyhoo, my heart totally went pitter-patter when I spotted Modest Maven.

These clothes are rad, in the same way that a black and white cookie with a side of sweet, sweet coca-cola is rad (i know, totally off topic but I’m starving over here).

Hey look, there are even clothes for pregos! I wish I knew about this before I wore ugly moo-moos for 9 months.

Modest Maven. Check it.

Nom-Nom-Nom

I love to cook. And well, I’ve pretty much perfected the art of eating (hence the elastic pants I’m sporting today). Cleaning up? Now that is an entirely different story.

So when I stumbled across these aprons from Annies Attic, I seriously started to drool more than my teething 8-month old. They just make me want to head into the kitchen and eat something, I mean make something.

You Say Potato. I Say Just Give Them To Me.

OK so maybe you gals (and guys – hey, I don’t judge) can’t relate to this but I HATE wearing heals. Hells yes I’m a material girl, but I’m also into shoes that won’t give me bunions (sorry grandma, but your feet ain’t right). Enter super awesome shoes from ONSTAIL.

These little pieces of comfort and awesomeness make me want to wish away summer and bundle my feet up today. Maybe I’ll turn on my air conditioner and sit in the cold so I can wear these shoes.

And the purses? Hello. Pleasure to meet you. I’m officially in love with everything ONSTAIL has to offer. All for me. None for you. Too bad. So sad.
