Warning… you’re about to be disappointed…

Read Justin Bieber’s Mom’s Book called Nowhere but Up: The Story of Justin Bieber’s Mom – I never did this.  I know totally unacceptable.  My excuse: candy crush.

Try on a peplum style anything – I never did this either… again totally unacceptable.  my excuse…. lack of shopping?

Make a recipe from Teresa’s cook books – I never did this EITHER!!  Wow, this is not good.

Complete a pinterest project – I did this… and it came out horrible.  I tried a crock pot recipe for orange chicken.  So bad.  Never make the crock pot recipe for orange chicken that calls for basically just a can of oj concentrate, chicken, ginger, and vegetables… unless I did something wrong, and I don’t think I did… this was awful.

Go to a Fondue restaurant – I did this!!!  You can read about it here Melting Pot – A Fondue Restaurant 

I promise to do better in September…. Except I need to make my list… and get started.. and it’s already the 11th!

So What Wednesday!!

Today is so what Wednesday and this week I’m saying so what if…

  • I track Lamar Odom’s every move via tmz.
  • I watched the Tigger Movie last night basically by myself because NF wasn’t interested… *spoiler alert*… there is only one Tigger and he doesn’t find his family… but he realizes his friends are like his family… uhhh I saw that one coming like 6 minutes in.
  • I researched energy efficient hair dryers because someone told me that hair dryers make your energy bill go up a lot.  Energy is included where I live now, but when it’s not anymore (i.e. we move) I am going to be so aware now of my 10 minute hair drying routine costing real $.
  • I bought those foot pad things that take the toxins out of your feet… and they came from China and took like two months to arrive…. should I be sketched out and not try them?
  • so what if I got pretzels with my sandwich when I really wanted potato chips… I just felt like it was a healthier decision?  Is it even?  Someone research this for me, thanks.
  • I’d like to never hear or read the name George Zimmerman again.
  • I went on a wine tour and only bought two bottles of wine and now I am regretting it sooo much, I should have bought lots and lots more!

What I’m Loving Wednesday

what Im loving wednesday



NEW YORK: Today is the 12th anniversary of 9/11.  And I have to shout out my home, my life, the place I’ll raise my children, New York.  I’m loving it.  I will never forget.


NF: THIS little guy here… who might be ready for the potty?!  Any tips or tricks I need to know about before we start this adventure?  (not that anyone reads this?)

Lamar Odom and TMZ: TMZ can’t get ENOUGH of Lamar Odom and basically knows every single move he makes and reports it…. and for some reason I can’t stop looking for the latest update.  The most recent headline, “Lamar Odom buys popular ingredient for homemade crack pipes” … okay, normally I think tmz is ridiculous but a NBA player like Lamar doesn’t just go out and buy copper scrubbing pads to clean the kitchen with.  But they don’t have an actual picture of him and the grocery bag – just his alleged driver… and now I find myself thinking, why do I need to know this information, and more importantly why do I care?  I just do, I’ll answer myself.

Bethenny: Bethenny’s new talk show started on Monday….  and to be honest, I am not really enjoying it.  It’s too crude for me.  I mean I don’t even want to list the topics discussed on the show on here because I feel like it’s inappropriate.  I feel uncomfortable having it on with my toddler in the room.  BUT what I do love about this is that it’s better than Maury (oh my god by a million, I dislike the who’s the father talk show episodes).  I am sad because I wanted to really like this show.  Sorry Bethenny, I’m sticking with Ellen.  But let’s all be real here, who’s missing Oprah like whoa.


Daphne Oz is having a BAYYBAYYYY!!: Oh my goodness… I wish we were pregnant at the same time (but we’re not).  I’ve been waiting for Daphne to have a baby (we’re the same age ya know)…. and FINALLY it’s happening!!  She’s so cool – I love her on the chew and I LOVE Carla Halls reaction in that picture.  I hope Clinton Kelly does baby Clinton Craft Corners… oh this is just the best ABC news!!


Kimbo Slice: I had no idea Kimbo Slice is only 39 years old, I seriously thought that he was like 60… but that’s because I get him confused with Mr.T.  Anyway, I like Kimbo Slice and always root for him whoever he’s fighting.  I love when fights end in a knock out in like under 45 seconds.  (Maybe having Kimbo Slice was a pretty random addition to my “what I’m loving wednesday” but whatever, it’s my list – gotta keep it a little unpredictable!)

Tom Hanks has jury duty: This just makes me happy just because it makes me feel like Tom Hanks is a real nice regular person.
