Before I get into the rambling, here’s my Tuesday Trainer move for next week. The theme is RESISTANCE BANDS in case you missed yesterday’s post. (FYI, I also embedded it into that post, so when you go to upload your video, you can come to either post.)
Yet ANOTHER unsightly screenshot. Thank you, YouTube. You’ll receive no Christmas gift from me.
Ok…onto some Friday fun
Recent Observations – It’s NOT Ok Edition
1. It’s NOT ok to simply skip over Thanksgiving and move straight into Christmas.
Halloween is over. November 1st, I walked into Walmart and there are Christmas trees lined up and the greeters and checkout ladies are all wearing elf hats. ?!?!? What tha?!? I’m not “Grinchish” and I LOOOOOVE Christmas, but Thanksgiving comes first in the calendar year. And Thanksgiving is a GOOD holiday! There’s turkey and strawberry pretzel salad and yeast rolls and Mamaw Dot’s Google Gaggle. Google Gaggle needs to be celebrated, ya’ll.
We own all of Transiberian Orchestra’s Christmas albums. Travis refuses to let me listen to them until the day after Thanksgiving. I used to get angry at this. Now I embrace the tradition. Christmas can have it’s fun in DECEMBER, where it belongs.
2. It’s NOT ok for my 3 year old to play the fun, but humbling, “Tweeze the Gray Hair” game.
Begin scene: Travis sits on the floor, wrestling around with Henry. Henry stops playing, stands up and leers at Travis’ hair. Then he says, and I quote, “We gotta get these white hairs out, Daddy!” and starts grabbing at random hairs. End scene.
And end my hopes of ever doing ANYTHING that my kids don’t see and immediately parrot.
3. It’s NOT ok to lose the romance in your marriage.
That’s why you need to “date” one another. And set aside time for one another. And make out like horny teenagers.
4. It’s NOT ok that I ate THIS MANY Peanut Butter Chocolate bars.
By myself. With a fork. Little bites taken over a two, alright, one day span. Actually, it’s perfectly OK. Just meant I had to work harder in the gym. Or “make out” more vigorously.
5. It’s NOT ok for me to have never heard about Kimbra before now.
Allie had this video featured on her blog yesterday. It gets super good around 1:35.
Heavy lyrics, but such great voices and vibe! I listened to probably 4 more Kimbra songs on YouTube after this one. Another great one:
Love her melty, smooth voice. Ironically, SHE didn’t have ANY bad screenshots. Hmmm. She probably gives great Christmas presents.
6. It’s NOT ok to covet these shoes as much as I do.
or this dress…
7. It’s NOT ok to love you guys as much as I do.
No wait…that’s perfectly ok.
QUESTIONS: What is NOT ok? Recent pins? Plans for the weekend? Have you put your Christmas tree up yet?
We’re having a family photoshoot today. Outfits are pressed and ready, I’m actually going to do something with my hair. I’ll try to post some sneak peeks as soon as I can.
