I’m addicted to “Call the Midwife.”

It’s April 17.
It’s 4-17 day in 417 land.
Somebody should really organize a festival.
Or at the very least, we should get discount food somewhere.

Starbucks and Philly.
Makes me feel guilty for being white.
Privilege, if you don’t get the fuss, you probably have it.

“One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship.”
Make America Great Again.
“Power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in new shapes of your own choosing.”
“It’s a beautiful thing, the destruction of words.”
I have the best words.
“Doublethink means the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one’s mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them.”
Nineteen female accusers. Pillar of Christian values.

Adam has to work every night this week.
I love him for it.
Imma eat salad and clean out the nursery.
I’m addicted to this lemon poppyseed chop salad.
Kale, broccoli, cranberry, dried couscous.

I think I finally decided on an accent wall design.
I was over Pintersted.

DSW isn’t as great as everybody said it would be.

I did a thing Sunday.
I bought a crib.
It’s beautiful.
Trying to contain my excitement.

Before you ask, no, there is no news.

I ate at Chipotle a couple weeks ago.
I ordered guac.
It was extra.
My scoop of “guac” was literally a whole avocado half.
I tweeted a picture.
Chipotle sent me a free burrito coupon.
Behold the power of social media.

I like Dunkin’ black over Starbucks black.

I bought some work pants recently.
They are a size smaller.
That’s four sizes smaller than 2.5 years ago.

I penned a blog during a Weight Watchers meeting last week.
I was so angry, so frustrated, so jealous, so sad.
In that minute, I had to write.
I never posted it.
A friend of a friend knows a girl.
She’s 14.
She had a baby in February.
It was addicted to heroin.
So is she.
She’s also pregnant again.

I’m drinking Dunkin’ right now.

“Gilmore Guys” is my new jam.
By jam I mean spoken-work podcast.

Baby shower timing: How does it work when adopting?

We learned a new law this week.
Baby must remain in the same state as birthmom until paperwork clears the court.
That’s an average seven to 10-day process.
That’s the first seven to 10 days of life with #Letterbaby in a hotel room.
No comfort. No routine. All the others guests hate you.
Helluva thing.

I never thought I’d be the type of person who wore beige flats.
I thought wrong.

MIL spent a week in Kentucky visiting family.
Long story short, we have a lot of bourbon.

I wish I was better at sewing.
I’ve been thinking of taking a class.

Anybody need baked goods?
At the ready.


Me enjoying today’s forecast. #doublechinsforlife

    Whoa whoa whoa. Are you telling me guac is extra? *faints from a severe case of the vapors.
