 Paper Plates



Y'all, I do usually care about the Earth and stuff.  I mean we gots the composting and the gardening and the recycling and all the INGs, but dang- when a new baby comes, you buy yourself the super jumbo package of paper plates.  I mean, put that ish on your baby registry if you have to.  Because you know the only thing more awesome than when friends bring you meals?  You know it: not having any dishes to wash when you're done.

Complete Pancake mix



Speaking of emergency baby mode, if you want to hang on to the potential of some semblance of fanciness, keep some of this in your pantry stash. Your other kids will think you are the miracle worker of all miracle workers and really all you did is run your tap water into a bowl with some powder with one hand while holding a newborn in the other.

Miss Jessie's Original Quick Curls



I got a sample of this in my last Birchbox and even though I'm not wearing my hair curly anymore my hair is a temperamental turd muncher and has gone back to being semi-straight, this stuff is awesome.  I put it on when my hair is wet, blow and/or straighten as normal, and the texture is PERFECT.  Smooth but still with body.  So good.

Paddle-to-the-Sea 



Another homeschooling, fellow-parishioner mom friend of mine (she doesn't have a blog. Hey Meghan if you're reading this!  I'm so glad we got to be friends, fo realio) recommended this a few weeks ago so I snatched it up for the small-kid nightly read aloud sessions.  Paul, who will be 7 in August, is enchanted by this book.  Cecilia, who is 4, is moderately interested.  That's winning enough for me.  History and geography and animal science hidden in an exciting story?  Yes please.

This song

Even if you're usually like certain bloggers that shall remain unnamed (CARI) and don't watch videos embedded into blog posts, just watch this.  Watch and know my heart.

  1. I've done No Scrubs at a karaoke bar before. Somehow it probably would've sounded better if I could make it sound like that^. Ooh, an excellent find right there, my dear.

  2. Maybe I should also admit to watching the movie they made about TLC while I'm still here listening. It was fascinating.

    I'll show myself out now.

  6. Oh that video!! Through the whole lead-in I was just wondering, wondering if it was going to be THAT Scrubs song, because surely not. . . Then! I couldn't look away. And even with the guy's accent, I actually understood most of the words to that song for the first time ever.

  7. That song. Is. My. Jam. And I had to give up paper plates for lent because I just love them that much. And it was a hard 40 days. We may have eaten off of paper towels one night because I was so sick of dishes.

  8. It's summer, so no socks. And kids playing in sprinklers= no baths. Winning!

  11. I have a lovely apartment in my parents' basement that has all the comforts of home except a kitchen. Due to my semi-disabled status cooking is difficult. Fortunately, my dad and my son are great cooks so almost every day a decent dinner is only a stair climb away. I can climb stairs - but not without pain and not often - so almost all my meals are on disposable dishes so that I don't have to climb the stairs again to put them in the dishwasher after the meal. I consider this my guilt-free pass to using paper plates! And let's not discuss hair as I am naturally curly in the deep South. Not pretty.

  12. Just recently I purchased 6 fancy plastic plates from of all places the dollar tree. Yes, they are the hard plastic the kind they come up with each Spring and I love them so light and they look like real china. They are for when we have company (family) over for a BBQ~ other than that it is Paper plates all the way. I got rid of all my glass plates ..My glasses are the nice clear hard plastic ones too those I got at Pier one. and again, those are for Sundays.. I have foam paper cups for during the week..
    and it feels so goood.

  13. Man, I was sort of hoping that the Miss Jessie's would take my fine, bodyless hair, and make it gorgeous. Have #3 due in 4 weeks, really at a loss on my hair.

    But paper plates, for sure!
