So we have officially reached that point When Winter Needs To End. Ski team has finished (it’s all about me you guys) so Now Spring Can Happen. Like…any day. Or now, really. Now would be good.
Aaaaand when I start talking about the weather (SNORE) that typically means I have a mad case of writer’s block. If you guessed that was the case…you are correct, sir.
Whatever. I’m tired, I’m cold, and the stores are selling swimsuits just to mess with our minds. I WILL ONLY BUY SWEATERS FOR THE REST OF MARCH, STORES. TAKE THAT.
Like…this one. Yup, that’s a bunny. I’ll take the bunny one and alllllllll the other ill-fitting, oddly colored sweaters-on-sale-I-will-regret-buying-next-month. GET IN MY CART. (Oh good – there’s a small left in brown.) Snort.
What should I wear to Mom Prom? Someone started referring to our school’s annual fundraiser as ‘mom prom’ and YES. Yes it is. Do I then just embrace the madness and wear a gown? Oooo…like this one. Actually, I do have Reformation’s Gavin dress (in dark green) which is basically just a nice dress that spoofs a gown, soooo….either that or the bunny sweater.
Old man pajamas for kids. Obviously Pax needs these. (And Linzi, we all took a vote and decided that your little needs them too.)
I need new underwear. Someone help me. It occurred to me, a few weeks back, that the thong underwear I’ve been wearing for years really wasn’t that comfortable. As soon as that thought popped into my head – BAM! – I couldn’t unthink it. So each day since I’ve become progressively more and more unhappy with my Hanky Pankies. Has thong underwear always been this bad? Have I been repressing my true feelings since the 90’s? In any case, I need something new. I like the no-panty-line situation with thongs, but the only ones that are really (and truly) comfortable are these, and I’m not sure they’re all that flattering on. What underwear do you guys swear by? I need some good recommendations for a cute-n-comfy pair…
Smells like Tween Spirit. Native Deodorant recently came out with a line for tweens, and the Vitamin Sea scent is so good, I’d wear it. There are three other options, but the Vitamin Sea is hard to beat (and very gender neutral).
Soul mates are SO 2018. Apparently, the real power couple is a “twin flame“. (And GOOP hasn’t talked about anything bat shit crazy in a while, so, well….they’re due).
I take back my eyeroll. When I first saw the headlines screaming, “First All-Women Spacewalk!!!” my initial reaction was annoyance: it’s 2019…we can’t just call it a spacewalk?? But after reading a little more….that’s exactly what it is: a fairly routine spacewalk planned for later this month that happens to be all women (including the lead flight director and lead spacewalk flight controller on the ground). What’s newsworthy (sadly) is that this is the first time it’s happened that way. So…there’s that. One small step for woman, one giant leap for…anyway. More details here.
Shamless plug, but still. The best thing I’ve read in a while is Lex’s latest Unpacking article. If you haven’t yet read it, grab a cup of coffee and get comfy. It’s so freaking good.
Let’s end on a high note: STRIPES. I can’t decide between this classic French-striped tee (in orange stripe!!) from J.Crew…or THIS orange baseball striped tee (also J.Crew). But they’re both on sale, so maybe it’s a sign to go nuts: both?
Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend….
ps. BECCA swimsuit try-on sesh coming out soon. They’re….really good. Like, Wow.
