Stuff & Things: November 6th


Linking up with Kristin and Joey

+  My daughter can twerk.  No joke.  I don't know how she learned - maybe she was born with it.  Nick's mom pointed it out when I showed her a video of Ellie dancing and now it's all I can see when she dances.  Maybe it's not Miley's fault she dances like that... maybe?

 It may not be the best angle, but you get the idea.


+  The cloth diapers and I are currently battling.  There has been a big case of something going on with my diapers.  It's causing Ellie to get sores from them.  I think they just aren't getting cleaned enough (or so my cloth diaper gurus say). I am attempting my last round of stripping them (no, not like that, perv).  After that, I don't know.  I don't want to give in to disposables, but it's so tempting...


+  Why is it so difficult to find orange juice with pulp?  I love pulp.  Why would somebody NOT like pulp?  It makes it seem like REAL orange juice.


+  I'm tempted to start listening to some podcasts or something on the way to work.  Driving to and from work (20 minutes both ways...in the snow.. uphill... just kidding) gets kind of boring.  Especially when the radio sucks and NPR isn't playing the news yet.  Any suggestions?  Maybe I'll just start with some audiobooks...


+  Does anyone else listen to NPR?  I feel like Nick and I are of a very rare breed of young adults who actually enjoy getting caught up on life and listening to those fun shows like: Wait, wait, don't tell me.


+  Ellie was a frog for Halloween.  Now, we're not real big into Halloween, but we were given a hand-me-down costume and also invited to a church party with some of my younger cousins. I had to make sure she wore pink shoes so that people wouldn't confuse her for a boy.

They still did.  Maybe I should have put a 20 inch flower on her head....
