Good and Plenty

This is almost too good to be true! Here I was planning to write a post which was pretty much just filler (I’m on the alternate laptop again so I don’t have any of the photos I really want to share with you. Tomorrow?), though good filler, when I see the most delightful link.

Honestly, too good to be true if you’re the liberal reader that I think you are.

And also, my friend Robyn just introduced me to this woman, my new modern-day hero. Sarah Haskins sums up all your thoughts on fiber-rich yogurt, botox, and angry women voters as she explores how the media targets women. I’m probably way behind the times on her but she cracks me up and I needed to share. So, so worth clicking that link.

And on the local front, identical triplets Satch, Pablo, and Levi are having a banner day and are getting their parents pretty excited about some kangaroo care. They’re all but demanding to be held. (And Dan, back when Dash was under those very same lights when he was first born, we totally thought that Billy Reuben was either a sandwich or maybe a small-time mobster.)

So that’s about it for now. Time to get to work on personalizing these (new to me) vintage Christmas stockings I picked up from Whimsie Dots* a few weeks ago.

Besides the gorgeous tops that you see here, they have lovely alternating stripes of either red and green or blue and green. I fell in love with them and quickly rationalized their purchase. We’re soon to be a family of four, so don’t we need four Christmas stockings? Answer: yes we do.

Just one more thing before I go! I still really need your help/input on these lamps. Where did they come from? What were they used for?
If you say “illumination,” ha ha ha ha ha etc.
Most importantly, what kind of shade do they require to fit their look and the look of my home, which is increasingly becoming a mid-century modern look.

And a most happy Thanksgiving to you all! I am truly grateful for so much this year and you’re all included on that list. Enjoy your day.

    Is it Reuben? I have thusfar steadfastly refused to look up the spelling. I actually now think he’s a punk rocker. Satch and Pabs are back under the lights – and none too pleased about it!

    Oh – that first linky doesn’t seem to work (as of today, 11-29).

    I say either one goes. Tomayto, tomahto, etc.
    Link fixed! I can’t believe I accidently left good Anne Coulter news from everyone.

    This is your funniest post ever. I was cracking up the whole way through! Love the news of the jaw wiring, probably a strategy to lose 2 pounds! And I had never heard Sarah Haskins, unbelievable. Thanks for the laughs and the great links!
