All I know for certain is that Micah creeps me out and I wouldn’t trust him farther than I can throw him.

Agreed!  And way he both mocks Cal because Freida kept secrets and then encourages Cal to keep secrets solidified that feeling.

(seriously, guys - there is so much vomit in this house right now.  I’m totally fine but I’m the one on clean up duty for the other two so who knows how long that’ll last!  I keep getting stomach twinges and I’m not sure if that’s because I keep thinking about whether or not I’m getting sick or if it’s because I actually am getting sick.)

Between an impromptu road trip that I forgot my copy of California for and lots of personal ish I’ve been a bad reblog book clubber but yesterday I finished this week’s selection and OH EM GEE! I spent all night cleaning up brandon and pippa’s vomit trying to figure out what happened to the kids.  What are y’all’s theories?  

My theory is …

Kaylee saw Pippa’s Frankenstein cheeks all the way in Denver and she wanted in on the fun!

So I was telling my Harry Potter averse husband that today is the 7th anniversary of Deathly Hallows’s publication and I started to say “and to you who have stuck with Harry until the very end” but I teared up and literally couldn’t get past the word “Harry.” I tried multiple times. So, that’s where I’m at, I guess.

So Coldwater Creek is closing and they have a big sign in their store window saying everything 60-80% off!  So I walked over there on my lunch break because all (most of) my pants have holes in the knees and the pants are only 60% off.  And 60% off of $94?  Too much for this lady who shops the clearance at Target, ya know?  So I walked to Ulta to see if I could make up for last night’s disappointing manicure (every time I look at my fingers it mocks me.  IT MOCKS ME!) and look at the cuteness of these bobby pin barrette things!!  There were 4 sets left!  So, reader, I bought all 4.

I didn’t realize the nail polish I got with the Zoya 3 free deal were all jellies which… Ugh. I’m on coat, like, 12 and my nails are still a pale streaky pink instead of the lovely burgundy they should be. 

Not Zoya’s fault, that’s what a jelly nail polish does but uugggghhhhh.

I asked Pippa to help me empty the dishwasher and she sighed deeply then said really sadly “well, I am a hardworking bunny!”  

Why is this so funny to me?  I had to leave the room because I almost couldn’t stand up I was laughing so hard.  Poor Pippa got to sleep in until an ungodly hour (you don’t even want to know.  Kaylee is our natural alarm clock on the weekends and Pippa came into our room at 10:15 having just woken up and she woke us up) then got leftover cake for breakfast and now her mother has the audacity to ask her to take care of the silverware in the dishwasher?  Well.  It’s a good thing she’s such a hardworkin’ bunny.

I know I’m getting older when I see gorgeous young girls and, instead of being jealous, I say a prayer they take over the world and take no prisoners.

Pippa asked me to read her a book when I did not have access to a book (in the pool) so, being the sort of librarian who memorizes things, I told her the story of Pete the Cat and his 4 Groovy Buttons which ends with Pete losing all his buttons (with a "did Pete cry? Goodness no!" refrain) but being happy because he still has his belly button.
