A Few Unrelated Thoughts

1. My waffle iron is shunned. Actually, no, it's worse than that. It's about to get dumped for something that can handle more than 1/4 cup of waffle batter without vomiting all over its own innards and my counter.

2. The picture at the top of the post is also unrelated to anything I have to say here.

3. I am getting my haircut. Short. What do you think of this style? I think I like it, but with shorter bangs. Or maybe shorter all over? I really need some suggestions. I've finally given up the fantasy that one day I will wake up with thick, long, wavy hair like a fairy tale heroine.

4. There are only 3 reasons that I am allowing Walmart to continue to exist:
1. Their nylon foot liners.
2. Their fruit snacks.

5. I want a new camera in the worst way. Every time I check my sister's blog, and see her rad photog skills, I have to restrain myself from blowing the family budget on a new one. Will someone please send me a check for $1,000 so I can get the one I want. Thanks!

6. I cannot stop eating Milk Duds this week. Last week it was pesto. The week before: caffeine-free Diet Coke. Does anyone else do that?


  1. You'll look great with short hair. The blonde is maybe a little too short? But I like the choppiness of it.

    I was a little disapointed that link to your 'sister's blog' didn't go to mine.


  2. I think you'll look really cute with that style. That's kind of the style my hair is turning into.

    I love the pictures of you and Lucas (that's Lucas, right?). So cute!

    I'm the same way about a new scanner that you are with a new camera. Although, a new camera would be nice too. Thanks! Now, I'm coveting one of those too! ;)

    I also go through cycles of wanting to eat a certain food all the time. Luckily, they have been healthy foods lately. I hate it when it's my sweet tooth giving the orders.

  3. What a great post. I love the short hairs, but I agree, you want shorter bangs. In practical mommy life, long are always getting in the way of seeing "the most important things." See how I internalize your posts?

    If you don't already have a great girl, I go to this amazing salon in Alpine. Lacey is the best. You gotta love it when you want the hair of your stylist. Now if she could come do my hair every day...

    And sounds like the munchies - Is it kind of whatever you have an abundance of at the time? Munchies are hard to get rid of! But you can certainly afford it. =) I'm jealous.

  4. I feel the same way about my camera every time i look @ your angela's (yes, I am a lover of her blog) and Brook's photos! both amazing!!!

    I LOVE the hair cut ~ you may make me really really really want to chop my locks off..leaving my mike is disarray!

    you are so lovely! I love the pics of you and your little man.

  5. Sorry about your waffle iron.
    I think you would look great with short hair! I went shorter, only I'm trying to grow out my bangs.

    Angela's blog IS really cool.

    I go through phases of eating and snacking, too. My latest was California Pizza Kitchen Garlic Chicken Pizza-in any frozen food section. And the Chex Mixes.

  6. i love the photos of you and lucas.

    yes to the hair! you'll look good with short hair because your face is small and beautiful :)

    walmart sucks. last time i went there, my fingers kept getting shocked from the cart. they informed me it happens all the time because of the current running through the floor?!! haven't been back since.

    all i ever want to eat is sugar.

    i'd buy you a camera if i could. i love mine. thank you for saying i take nice photos :)

  7. I need a new camera too. When you get that check you should pay it forward. :)

    So with ya on the weekly cravings. This week it's been those shortbread pecan cookies, last week it was cinnamon bears. I keep thinking, "Success I gave up this weakness....oh crap I've just moved on to a new one."

    That is a way fun hairstyle. I wish I was brave enough to do something fun.
