Random Thoughts

1) We are going to Turkey in 70 days. I am so excited for that.

2) I am currently thinking about how to face my biggest fashion fear. Want to know what it is? Wearing black and yellow in the same outfit. I am so so so afraid I will look like a bumble bee. Anybody have some good inspiration for me?

3) Leena Lou and I got $400 worth of clothes for about $45 last night. I'd say we are INSANE bargain hunters.

4) Have you seen Once Upon A Time on ABC? It's awesome. Also it's about princesses so you know I love it. I hope it doesn't get cancelled. All my favorite TV shows get cancelled. I think I don't have very good taste in television.

5) Mickenzie from Toddlers and Tiaras is HILARIOUS. If you need a good laugh and you can get over the fact that she is completely out of control and needs some discipline then youtube her...

6) I am trying to figure out what to get everyone for Christmas. Some people are easy peasy and some are just NOT!

7) I did not participate in one single Halloween activity. No parties, no trick-or-treating, no dressing up. Also I didn't eat a single piece of Halloween candy. Despite all this, I had a fantastic costume prepared. I will save it for next year.

8) I am super excited for our annual girls-only Thanksgiving shopping trip!

9) For some reason I am really interested in reading about Mole People, the people that live in the abandoned Subway tunnels in New York City. Its fascinating.

10) I love Pinterest.

Was that random enough?

In case you're ever feeling ugly,

read THIS.

I always hear that the photos of celebrities are photo shopped. I had NO IDEA to what degree that meant.

This morning when I woke up it was pouring rain.

Rain boots seemed like a great idea.
A necessary idea.
Now that I have left the house, I hope I don't really have to go out in public.
It is not raining.
There are no rain clouds.
It is clear and sunny.

It makes me look like the gangsters that wear those puffy jackets even when it's hot.
Totally inappropriately dressed for the weather.

Fluffs snuck a baby pumpkin from Puff

she ran outside with it and hid it.
And then once in a while she digs it up and just sits next to it in the bushes. Actually she hides all her toys outside and then finds them when she wants to. She is so funny!


or more affectionately referred to as "Dan MacClain Sweats."
Every year Leena Lou and I go to Wal-Mart and get a new pair of sweats from the mens department. 
You know, elastic at the ankles, pockets the whole package.
A friend from church (Dan) wears these sweats everyday with a button up shirt. Its sort of his uniform. I envy how comfortable he must feel 24/7 not to mention he totally pulls it off.

Here is Leena Lou on the blessed sweat pants buying day 2011.

Now I would like to share an email that we got a few days ago:

Wal-Mart just received a huge shipment of the famous “Dan MacClain” sweat pants.

I was so happy.

The thicker winter, type are just $5.94 and the thinner, summer type are $9.94, seems it should be the other way around, but if you get one of each, thick and thin, and cost average the two, you are spending only $7.94 to make a “Dan MacClain” fashion statement!

Many wonderful colors, although just in case you have not noticed,
I stick to the rather slimming Navy or Blanco (fu-fu names for Blue and Black, yes I made them up, marketing genious that I am)

See samples below!


Description: Very versatile

Description: ready for action!

Also available in several great colors for African Americans!

Description: available for coaches  Description: basketball players Description: and for yoga!

Description: Young and pink  …………………………………………..old and gray Description:

Everytime we know we are going to see him, we put on our sweats, I hoped he was flattered by this and after reading this email I am certain that he is!

Grammar Police #1

In just 10 minutes on facebook I saw all 3 of these:

It's "first come, first served" NOT "first come, first serve"

And come on. Whipped cream. Not whip cream.

Best of all, "after 2 surgeries I can finally breath." oh yeah. Cuz we all need to breath.

A little update

I posted a video on MAC's facebook wall of some of the childrens music that my aunt listens to and that we used to listen to when we were younger. Read my aunt's comment and that will prove my whole point:

I really need an answer to this.

It is ok to go up to someone and tell them their fly is down.

It is ok to tell someone they have lettuce in their teeth.

It is ok to tell someone there is toilet paper stuck to the bottom of their shoe.

It is ok to tell someone that they've dropped something (a doller, a paper...)

It is ok to tell someone there is a hair on their black sweater and then pick it off.

It is ok to tell someone that there is an eyelash on their cheek.

Everytime I see a girl wearing shorts so short that her butt cheeks are hanging out I feel like it would be common courtesy to tell her as in the above situations. As in: you can't possibly know that everyone can see your butt or you wouldn't be out in public? Right? 

Why is this not ok?

I petition to get this added to the list of common stranger courtesies.

3 Quirky/ Hilarious things my dad does:

(this will be even better if you've met him)

1) When we go to a drive through he pulls up so the person sitting behind the driver does all the work. If you're sitting behind him then he rolls down your window and makes you place the order and pay and pick it up. He says "I can't understand a word they're saying."
Then he wonders why the workers get so confused when he drives right past them.

2) He gets in trouble for playing with the dog at inappropriate times such as: whenever my mom wants his attention, during general conference, during family prayer and occasions like that. If we're lucky it comes down to my mom saying "John if you don't stop playing with Fluffy you're both going outside!"

3)Everytime we go to the grocery store, he pays and then asks the checker "How much money did I save with my club card?" Then the checker has to frantically and awkwardly find the line on the mile long receipt that says "You saved $3.08 today!" They tell him and he says "Good. Thanks" and leaves.

Obviously I have met Cinderella before.

Last week at D-Land I met Drizella, Anastasia and Lady Tremaine.

Now if only I could meet Prince Charming my life would be complete!

One day Leena Lou and I wore the same shirt.

That's what happens when you buy shirts for $3 at Forever 21

The best days at work are when

The mullet man comes to water and sing to the office plants. Yes you read that right.

This is my cousin's baby Lexi.

I LOVE her!!

This is Puff at In-N-Out.

He has "shots" of Rootbeer in ketchup cups. He prefers to drink all his beverages out of his shot glass collection.

This is Leena Lou before church.

She was like "Well I guess I don't need my knife in there" and tossed it out of her purse onto the floor.

A few weeks later MM and I took her to the airport. She would have gone through security with that thing if MM wouldn't have held his hand out (as a joke) and said "Leena give me your knife." She said "Oh yeah I almost forgot!" and dug it out of her purse.

Resourcefulness at its finest.

"Well I didn't want you to have to wash a cup Kirs"

I'm not a fan of these. Don't be offended.

 I like owls and owl hats.
I love babies.
Not a good combination.
I have seen way too many birth announcements with similar pictures.

 Umm excuse me, did you have a baby or did you hatch a bird?

If you are easily jealous,skip this one.

Announcing the family trip of 2012

Know where it is?

Yep, you guessed it.


Seriously SO EXCITED!

I absolutely adore my aunt.

This is my dad's older (and only) sister.
I love her to bits. She is hilarious and wonderful.
I went to Finland with her and my grandma when I was 18.
We have Christmas Eve dinner at her house every year and it's so fun!
She has alot of cats and adopts all the neighborhood cats. (They love her too.)

You've been waiting for 7+ months to learn her dirty little secret. I hope you aren't disappointed.

She listens exclusively to children's music.

Hop into her van and you won't hear the radio. You won't hear country music or rap or pop or talk radio or the news. You will hear THIS, THIS and THIS. And only this. There is singing along and it's loud. Please turn your computer up all the way and sing along for the most realistc effect. Watch ALL 3 videos. If you don't think this is funny then you don't have a sense of humor and I am totally offended.

Did I mention that these are all on casette tapes? Yeah one day she copied them for me and Mac to listen to. We practically wore the tapes out. But sometimes we listen to them for old times sake (and to drive Puff nuts.) I guess you could say I'm turning into my aunt. Fine with me :)
