Wednesday Things

Hello, random Wednesday blog post! 

Last night, Brandon moved Oliver's bed to right in front of the fireplace. For the longest time, he kept staring right into the fire {"MY EYES!!!"} and then he fell asleep right in front of the fire. How precious is that?! 

As we were flipping channels, we came across "African Cats" on NatGeo, right at the part where they're talking about the "cold, hard rain" in the African Savanna and how these cheetahs were so cold...and looked down to see our cat snoring {I kid you not} in front of the fire. I could not stop laughing for the life of me. He is so ridiculously spoiled! 

Two girls in my office {hi, Sara!} recommended that I read the Pretty in Pink Megan blog...and now I'm minorly obsessed with it. 

Per her recommendation, I ordered Diatomaceous Earth (food grade) to make my hair grow longer, faster. I think Brandon thinks I'm a nut, but I took it this morning and had to chug the water mixture so quickly, since we all know about my texture aversion. I totally psych myself out. 

{Side note: I kept telling myself that if I could chug what I chugged in college, I could chug this 12-oz. glass of powdered water. Classy, no?} 

And then I totally geeked out when Megan started following me on Instagram and commented on my photo {above}. Brandon was like, "Oh. My. Gosh. Calm it down!" Ha! 

Speaking of hair, I rolled it like this yesterday and really wasn't sure about it {clearly, per my face in this photo}. 

BUT I kept getting comments from people saying how much they liked it. Why is that? When you think you look "blah," you get so many comments, but when you go into work thinking you are looking so cute? Nothin'.  

So what do y'all think about the rolled hair?

PS: My cream-colored shirt is inside out here. I didn't notice until I got to work. And then I left it inside out all day. #winning

Do y'all watch "Parenthood?" We LOVE it. 

If you watch it, you know that Christina had breast cancer and last night, there was a major incident and she was hospitalized on Christmas Eve and they thought she wasn't going to make it. {Hello, longest run-on sentence ever.} She told her husband, Adam, that she had a file on her computer that she wanted her kids to see. His dad, Zeke, brought the computer to the hospital and Adam watched it. The files? Video messages to each of her children. 

I kid you not, I was SOBBING at this point. Like, could-not-breathe-used-more-than-one-Kleenex sobbing. It hits too close to home sometimes! 

Hope y'all have a fabulous Wednesday! 


  1. we watched African Cats last night too!

  2. Ok your hair is super cute!! I absolutely know what you mean though on days when I think I look adorable nada but when I'm feeling kind of iffy I get compliments.
