Spice Up Your Life

alright, i'll admit it...
lately i've gotten into the "momma" blog post.
you know where all you ever do is post about your kids because they really and truly are your entire world...
and yes, i know to some readers, that is if i still have any out there...my comments seem to really be dwindling...that can be pretty..well, you know
so, i am going to make a promise to you that even though i am still going to post about my babies...i promise from here on out that not EVERY post will be about my babies...
now whether or not you really care about what i am posting about...oh well...i can't help you out there.
so...i've decided that i will spice up this entry a little bit..
give you something a little bit different to read about
so from this point on...i will not talk about Big E and little e, well, in this post anyway...

i currently have several things that i am obsessed with lately...
thought it would be fun if i shared.

one of the things that i am currently obsessed with is the fact that these two people
(the one on our right is 90 and the one on our left is 79)

have joined the 21st century and actually have what we call

the iphone. yes... they do.
i love it.
i love getting random text throughout the day from them...and i love being able to send them pictures and text.
i, personally, think it is precious.

the bachelorette...
no, i am NOT obsessed with the bachelorette...
but, i am going to go ahead and admit it, i am obsessed with ames
oh i know, i know...he isn't cute...he looks like harry connick jr., but he is sooo charismatic
yes, i did watch the episode where he was knocked out...but honestly, i love the fact that walt hasn't ever been in a fist fight either...that is NOT saying that they are wussies...it is just saying that they are very mature, and that they honestly have good intentions.
ames is intelligent, he is sincere, he's funny, and he has a great head on his shoulders.
now , i know that she doesn't end up picking ames (thanks reality steve) but he really is a catch...it isn't all about looks now, is it.

currently obsessed with these burlap personalized pillows
this is what i want for my birthday and i purchased this for a newly wed couple as their wedding gift..i love it.
you can have your wedding date on there, your initials...what a clever idea

congress clothing
they make unique baylor shirts...
and i am currently looking for new shirts and outfits to wear for the upcoming season
i think this one would be perfect for walt...
can't you see it, with some tight white shorts..haha

but, i do LOVE this one
for basketball season
oh, so cute

who couldn't love andy cohen
i'll confess...i am a sucker for trashy t.v.
i LOVE it all...
but andy cohen makes it that much better
i dvr every single one of his "watch what happens live"
after the real housewives of "insert a popular metropolitan area here"
andy cohen is just flat out precious
love the show, love him
speaking of real housewives
my most favorite show is
real housewives of new jersey
(i used to like the new york one, but it is WAYYYY too much drama)
new jersey has a lot of drama,
but caroline manzo...
what a class act
i absolutely LOVE her
she always gives wonderful advice
she is a fabulous mother
a true friend
and she loves her husband like no other
sometimes i wish i could be her
she is the Queen of new jersey for sure

don't you love these shoes from anthropologie?
yeah, me too...i'm obsessed
i ordered them actually...
i was so excited that these shoes were coming in the mail and then i received an email...
my ordered had been CANCELED...canceled because they THOUGHT that they had my size in stock...
they didn't.
definitely ruined my week...
however, i am still obsessed with the shoes
i had already put together a cute outfit to wear with them...an outfit that my ever so fashionable younger sister would have been proud of...
oh well...
i guess it is back to mom clothes

if you haven't read this book...please go and buy it now
i literally could not put this book down
and i will be buying the book,
the adultery club,
to read next
i know, the title sounds awful...but like i said earlier... i do get sucked in to all the drama
not like my life is filled with drama or anything...

and lastly,
i know everyone is obsessed with the pioneer woman
i am obsessed with her
chicken tikka masala
actually, it isn't her recipe...it is her pastor's
ohhhh myyy goodness is it good
i'm talking melt in your mouth, you never want to eat anything else good
i do add a little bit more sugar to the recipe
but it's not like more sugar ever hurt anyone
if you are on a diet...don't make this...
but let me tell you...you are missing out

anything that i should be obsessed with, that i don't know about??
can't you tell that i am FISHING for comments...
i NEED to feel loved here :)

I LOVE reading your blog and I LOVE your posts about your babies! :)

JoDee said...

I'm right there with you... not about Ames, but about dwindling comments!! ;)
I can't say it on my own blog so I'm gonna say it here- I want some comments! When you get over 100 page views and NO comments it's pretty frustrating! It's honestly made me lose quite a bit of motivation and now my posts are dwindling too... Guess my child is really only interesting to me. I just can't imagine that! Ha!
And another confession, I'm usually reading blogs on my phone, and for some reason posting comments is tricky and even now while I'm doing it, I'm worried I'll hit "save comment" and the whole thing will disappear! Ugh!
Anyway- love the post, love your blog, love you!!! Have a good one, Mer!

How about a comment from a random lurker? I first found your blog through Kinsey P's..although, crazily enough, she and I have never met although we have tons of shared friends/connections. I graduated from BU in 2001 and it's so funny to me to read various other "Baylor blogs" and realize there was SO much else going on since I really felt like I knew a ton of people while I was there! :-)

I am so excited about your mention of Congress Clothing-- those shirts are too cute! I'll have to check it out!

Have a wonderful holiday weekend!

PS: Does everyone tell you that you look like Robin Scorpio from General Hospital??! Or am I crazy?!

LOVELOVELOVE Andy and Caroline!!!!!! Trash tv is the best!!! Sorry about those shoes...cute!!!!!!

Lindley said...

Love, love, love the randomness today! Good stuff! But, I also love your baby posts too, so don't worry about blogging 'too' much about them. I though that's what these blogs are for, no?! That's why I created mine! :) Have a fabulous 4th and thanks again for your help on my blog!

Poco said...

hahaha.. looks like it's working! :)

kinsey said...

my mom asks me every single day, "did you dvr Watch What Happens Live?" she is equally as obsessed as you on that one...ha!

Rathi said...

I love the new jersey cast too!! That recipe looks so good, might have to try it! Loved the post!

Jenette said...

I'm not a random lurker;), but I am a random commenter!! Ha! BUT, OMG. . .the adultery club is the trashiest, best book ever. I brought it to my parents' house a few summers ago and had to put it in my suitcase until I got home. I could NOT read it in their home. . .it was that bad/good!!! Let me know what you think;)

Sue said...

Oh Mer! Haha, Ames is awesome! I love him, too. He's so awkward / dorky, but so smart and oh so funny. Reminds me of our guys, jk! Oh, btw, I watched my first episode of New Jersey a few weeks ago and man, it that show intense or what! Talk about d-r-a-m-a. Love IT! I can talk about this crap for hours, haha. Love you!

If you like drama, you should watch pretty little liars. i know its for young adults/teenagers, but you might REALLY enjoy it.Espically the books. Its basically all drama, with a little bit of suspense & mystery as well. I would totally recommend them! Just a thought! & your babies, are absoulty the cutest things on the internet. Just saying. (:
