I also showered and washed my hair!!! And then I put on makeup. Miracles never cease. I was on such a roll that I even picked out fingernail polish. But it didn't actually get on my nails. Maybe today? Yes, I know that was a lot of detail about my appearance but it's hard to keep it together when you have a kid! (Mostly cuz I'm a clingly mom and like holding her too much.)
Anyway, Daddy came home and was the sweetest. "Hey, since you didn't make dinner tonight, how about we do family date night?" okaaaaaay. So Bryson said we should go to Wild Zucchini because I had never been. I was skeptical. Italian Cafe Rio? I AM NO LONGER SKEPTICAL. The pizza is to die for and there's this wrap thing that I can't remember the name of...starts with a P...that has pasta in it and it was almost equally amazing. "Pasta in a wrap?", you say? I know. It's actually not as carby as you think (but I really know how to eat carbs so perhaps I'm not the most reliable source). You should go if you haven't been. Also, this was Emery's first excursion that she was awake for and it was the cutest. Deer in the headlights the whole time.
Then we watched The Holiday and I've decided it's gotta be on the top 10 movies of all time. Judge away but the little British girls just kill me. And old man Arthur. And Jack Black singing in Blockbuster. Also, gumption. (Bryson's two comments about the movie were 1. "Do girls really do that?" on Iris crying her eyes out in the beginning, and 2. "Cameron Diaz didn't ever say 'I love you' back." So obviously he agrees with my ranking.)
|this is how you know it was a good day. we party hard.|
Now for the "other random thoughts"After being outside for 5 minutes yesterday, I have decided I will be hibernating until my birthday.
I understand why moms cut all their hair off after they have a kid. It all falls out and then what's left of it gets caught in baby's death grip, gets in the way of breastfeeding, and takes way too long to dry. My hair is in a ponytail every single day. And on the off chance it escapes momentarily, I wish it was back in the ponytail. So hypothetically if I chopped it, would it be okay? Like for me emotionally? Long haired girls who have chopped it, do you regret it? Is it terrible that I am so attached to my hair? Ugh.

I finished the book Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver and my dreams of living the high life in New York City with designer clothes have been swapped out for living in a tiny house on a farm to raise chickens. Seriously. Maybe I should chop my hair off since I don't recognize myself anymore anyway!
I went off social media for 3 days. BEST THING EVER! I might extend it another 3 days. Or months. I really don't want to know how freezing it is outside.
Is there anything in the world better than a baby in a white onesie? Maybe a baby in just a diaper? Too cold for that now.
and...WHAT DO YOU GET YOUR GUY FOR CHRISTMAS?!
