…remember when you were a tween, you were at a friend’s house for a big group sleep-over, the parents of the house were asleep, and you got that sleepover feeling? You know the one? You’re up after midnight, your mouth is dry and tacky from sugar consumption, the next chick flick has just announced itself with a flurry of 90s pop as the opening credits roll, and you’re lying on your tummy on a thin mattress on the floor surrounded by your buddies in the dark? That feeling? THIS IS WHY CHILDHOOD WAS MAGICAL. I mean we don’t get to experience that scenario, or those feelings, as adults. Boo. That just ruined my day.
Also, just now Chris sneezed and I said “bless you as adults” because I was typing the words “as adults”. OMG.
I had this teacher in high school who swore up and down that she and her bestie had tea with two of The Beatles. So allegedly they weren’t *quite* crazy famous yet, but she and her friend were already mad about them, so one afternoon they got their stalk on and somehow found out where George Harrison lived. And they went “YOLO” and knocked on his door. Ringo Starr happened to be over, and the guys invited the girls in for afternoon tea.
What do you think?
Like I want to believe it, because it’s an awesome story.
I’ll leave you to ponder that one.
Guys, I’m tired. Jackson has been teething or something the last few weeks, and he just wakes up screaming in the middle of the night. He cries when we put him down for naps, even if he’s atrociously tired. Now he’s generously also decided that 5am is wake-up time in the mornings. Curse the day I nonchalantly spoke the words, “Jackson’s got a GREAT relationship with sleep!”
But you don’t want to hear about my lack of sleep because I mean, who doesn’t need more sleep, amiright? So let’s move onto the links portion of this Sunday treat!
I am all over this list of five people you need in your creative tribe. So important for any creative person!
This ostrich feather duster is DELIGHTFUL. I mean, would I personally spend $65 USD on a feather duster? Gosh no. But it’s fun to imagine, no?
THIS PINK SKIRT. GET OUTTA TOWN.
I made this sweet and spicy pork shoulder with sesame cucumbers for dinner last night, PLUS I used the pork rind to make crackling. GUYS. THIS IS NOT A DRILL. COOK THIS MEAL. Chris is struggling to move past it. Even this morning, it’s all he’s talking about. Good thing we have left-overs for his lunch…
So that’s Sunday, folks. I get to cuddle some friends’ brand new baby today, so I’m pumped!
