Tuesday Tidbits

BIRTHDAY GIFTS AREN'T EASY

My birthday is coming up and my husband looked at me and said "How do I get a gift for a girl who gets a million subscription boxes and has everything she could possibly want?"
Well, I do get a lot of subscription boxes and I don't really *need* anything. As a frivolous gift, I think I want an ice cream maker. Does anyone know a good brand/type that's easy and will work for years even if it's only twice a year?

THAT THING THAT HAPPENED WHEN I WAS 14...

I remember being on a plane when I was in junior high and looking at a magazine. It was open to one of those milk mustache ads when a flight attendant passed by. The woman in the ad was gorgeous. The flight attendant stopped and asked who it was and since I didn't know who, I read the fine print at the bottom of the page. I told her it was "Teera Banks". And the flight attendant said "Oh, Tyra, I love her!" That's one way to learn how to say a name properly. And cringe in embarrassment. Still. Twenty years later. Does anyone else ever get that feeling over something that happened ages ago and doesn't even matter?

I GET EMOTIONAL SOMETIMES

I watched this video of an elementary school chorus singing a song to a teacher struggling through cancer and bawled my eyes out. Srsly. I had to get Kleenex and everything. Now I want to hug everyone.


TAYLOR SWIFT
Even though I don't really know Taylor Swift or listen to her music, I can't help but like her. She's just a girl (well, I guess she's 25 now) and she's done some pretty awesome things for her fans. I like that.

CHOCOLATE IS ALWAYS A GOOD IDEA
I don't know why but I managed to get sick over the weekend. The only thing that sounded good was chocolate. Why am I not surprised? Did I eat chocolate in bed with my hot tea? Yes. Yes, I did. I wanted desperately to blog as I watched my boxes pile up but I could barely think. Much less write coherently. Sorry, Urthbox. Hah!

SALAD TONGS TAKE ON A WHOLE NEW MEANING
One of my best friends just had a baby. They named her Penelope and call her Penny for short. She is gorgeous! When she gets older, I'll tell her that we are basically twins because we were both pulled out with forceps.

Did I mention she's adorable? I want those lips!

    1. I told my friend she was lucky to get such a cute baby. Because not all babies are cute. So then she asked me if I would lie to her and say her baby was cute even if it wasn't. And I said No, I would just say things like oohhh, look at her toes! or Ohhh, she's so tiny and pink. Haha! I'm kind of horrible :\

    2. I once saw an ugly baby and I was so shocked by my own thought that it was ugly that I could barely walk. I felt guilty as heck. I would be unable to be so smart as to say cute toes or what have you because I just know I would blurt out UGLY BABY!!!

      My bday is coming up too, but I have only a fur baby...
