Pick Me Up Monday :: A Girl and Her Fox

My friend Emily at Baby Dickey does a weekly meme called Pick Me Up Monday. We all need a little pick me up on Mondays, eh? I took this video of Nellie last night and knew it was perfect. Enjoy this video of her cuddling her lovey, “Fox”. Also, Sean Kingston.



First You Gotta Do the Truffle Shuffle

One of my favorite TV shows is America’s Funniest Home Videos. DON’T JUDGE ME, the show is absolutely hysterical. How can you NOT laugh your ass off at people falling down the stairs or leaping off of trampolines and crashing into bushes? Maybe I’m just sadistic. Whatever.

My point. One night we were watching this show and we saw a series of videos in which the wife would lock her husband outside, and before she’d let him come back in she’d make him dance – videotaping him all the while. Kind of like this:

Well we, of course, thought it was terribly clever. We laughed and laughed and laughed.

I stopped laughing when my dear husband started doing it to me. When I’d get out to retrieve a lottery ticket or a soda from a gas station, I’d come back to find the car door locked, the window down and a song blaring while my husband grinned evilly at me from behind the wheel. He would not unlock the door until I made a spectacle of myself in the middle of the Golden Gallon.

This has been going on for years but for the first time yesterday… He caught me on camera.

Ahem. I’ll wait a second while you marvel at my dance skills your hysterical laughter subsides.

Daddy Green… The gauntlet has been thrown.

What Would You Say?

If you could go back to right before you had your first child and tell yourself one thing..

What would it be?

I think if I could say just one thing to myself before I had Nellie it would be..

Enjoy every second, because this is going to go faster than you can possibly imagine.

If I could say two things, I think the 2nd thing I’d say is..

It’s okay to feel sad. Or scared. Or helpless. It’s okay to cry.

So.. What would you say?


There are no words, so just.. Enjoy.

This Will Make You Feel Awkward and Not Hot

So…. A few thoughts.

1. This woman looks better about to give birth than I have ever looked.
2. If I had tried to move like that at 38 weeks pregnant, I would fallen down and died.
3. If I tried to move my body like that, ever, in my entire life, I would fall down and die.
4. If I attempted to wear shoes like that and walk, let alone prance around and bust a move.. Say it with me, now: I would fall down… And die.

This lady is fierce and works it. Be jealous, girls… Be very jealous.
