A wig a day keeps the blues away

A wig a day keeps the blues away

I can get behind this look 🌟🌟🌟(thanks @beautycon)
Happy mid-October blog! These are not my lips…but they COULD be.

What's this? Another sinister finding at the playground?!
Gee, I thought I was all done with my Creepy Things Found at a Child’s Playground series…and then I saw this!?!

Day 6: I "acquired" this neon magenta bob from the Broad, but seem to have lost my beloved blue bob. You know what color I don't have? AQUA. I need an aqua wig.
In continuing with my post-a-wig-every-day-until-I-run-out idear, here is Corinne’s magenta wig that I “acquired” many years ago.

corinne purple
She wore it first! Here’s my Broad at Burning Man, circa 2004, wearing my corset (still have it), and skirt (nope).

πŸ’šπŸƒπŸ’™
Fall is dazzling me with all the changing colors, I love this time of year.

Halloween #fbf: Little Lizzy as a princess in a Gunne Sax dress with my two neighborhood BFFs Samantha and Alexis. Boy did I love to boss those two around! πŸ‘»
Dressed up for Halloween with my two neighborhood pals, Samantha and Alexis. Their father filled candy machines for a living so they always had candy and gum at their house, and they were younger than me so I could boss them around all the live-long day. Hooray!

Day 7: the Hayley Mills wig! It wasn't supposed to be. It was supposed to be a cool little pixie for when I felt my Edie Sedgwick coming on (which used to be a LOT)...but somehow it had more of a Hayley Mills vibe, so the nickname stuck. Oh well. "Let's g
The Hayley Mills wig. She was supposed to be an Edie Sedgwick but that just wasn’t in the cards for her.

blonde ambition
Notable for a series of self-portraits I took back when Josh and I were on a 4-day hiatus because of my drinking and I immersed myself into a bottle of whiskey and put on a lot of eyeshadow and took some of the best self-portraits of my life. The series even inspired a painting…

"Self-portrait with Grapes", 2008. My Aunt Lisa has wanted this painting for years, and I'm finally mailing it to her! #procrastination: a celebration.
…that my aunt requested, and I gave to her. Good ol’ Hayley Mills wig!

Saturday morning Daddy/baby dance party πŸ’™
One week ago today: daddy and baby dance party in the kitchen. He has the baby currently–I won the chore chart so I get my 3 hour break from the baby. I’m using it to type this blather and then I’m going to make my Halloween costume.

For me October involves watching a lot of horror films. Today's pick: "The Legend of Hell House", 1973.
It just wouldn’t be October without watching a few scary movies, eh? This one is from 1973 and it’s called “The Legend of Hell House”. It was…okay. Not scary. Almost campy.

Oooh yeahhh ✨✨✨(thanks @ashish).
This is an image from the account of a designer in the UK called Ashish who smothers all of his clothes in sparkle and I LOVE IT ALL.

Day 8: the Cleopatra wig! Worn for Halloween 2011. I was proud of the fact that I made both my Cleopatra and Josh's Marc Antony costumes.
The Cleopatra wig! Back in 2011. I worked SO HARD on our Cleopatra and Marc Antony costumes and then we both got disgusting colds just in time for the party. BOOOOO.

Marc Antony and Cleopatra
Seems to me we were on a lot of cold medicine, here. Heh.

Spotted in my neighbor's yard: zombie flamingoes! Cute! πŸ‘»
My neighbor’s zombie flamingo graveyard is too cute. Josh refuses to do the graveyard in our front yard this year, he tells me it’s “too macabre”. However, he WILL do the giant spider devouring the human skeleton. ?

Prismacolor/metallic ink. Not dated. 🌟✨✨
It’s an older Lizzy drawing, frustratingly NOT dated but it must be after 2008 because I signed it EP Holcomb, my married name. Note to self: ALWAYS DATE EVERYTHING. It will help with the dementia later on.

Day 9: the old lady wig! We dressed up as old people/our "future selves" for Halloween 2014. It was one of my favorites! πŸ‘΅πŸ‘΄
The Old Lady wig! Josh said I looked like the Starbucks logo, which was entirely unintentional.

Test run today of our Halloween costumes and make-up. We watched a bunch of YouTube tutorials on how to make your face look old...then we couldn't stop laughing! I ❀️ Halloween!
This was Halloween 2014, and it was SO much fun. I even had an awful cold which just made me look even more pathetic and elderly. I would have won the costume contest at work, but I didn’t want to stick around an extra 20 minutes because I felt so crappy…now I regret not staying.

Granted, Maggie's had to wait almost 12 years, but now food opportunities are literally falling into her dog mouth! πŸ˜‚
Maggie’s got a real good thing going on with the baby. I’ll have my back turned for a second and he’ll be feeding her his baby crackers!

It's beginning to look a lot like Halloween at Casa Holcomb. πŸ‘»
Starting to decorate the house. Party is in two weeks!

Gotta say, I like the look of the scary portraits against the aqua wall.
Really enjoying the scary portraits against the aqua wall.

'Sup, glitter skeleton. πŸ’€βœ¨βœ¨βœ¨
And of course, the glitter skeleton.

Another beautiful Fall day πŸŒ²πŸƒπŸŒΎ
Mixed in with the rain and gloom, we are still having nice days like this.

Day 10: the blonde beehive! I don't remember buying this wig and I don't remember using it for any particular costume...but there it is! Huh. My 20s were craaazy. πŸ˜…
The blonde beehive! I have no memory of buying this wig or using it for any particular costume…although all of my photos from 2005-2007 are gone so anything is possible. It’s a little sad to me how limited my memory is unless I have photo proof. What would I do without obsessive documentation of my life?

9 months of Goo! 😍
Aw, sick Goo. 9 months old! 9 months of this sweet baby boy. I love him so much it catches in my throat sometimes. I sit and look at pictures of his face before I fall asleep because it makes me happy. I slept downstairs this week to spare Josh from my coughing and nose blowing and germs and for 10 straight minutes one night, we just texted each other pictures of our son back and forth. It’s LOVE.

Out buying vitamin C at Walgreens yesterday and discovered that they have a Day of the Dead section. Cool. πŸ’€
Walgreens has a Day of the Dead section now! I resisted. It was hard.

Day 11: the Courtney Love wig! It was called the "white trash" wig on the wig website, but I used it to play Courtney with Josh's Kurt in 2009. It has not aged well. πŸ˜‚
Oh man, the Courtney Love wig did NOT want to cooperate. I did two different sessions with it, a week apart, so I can’t blame the cold…and I hated all of them! The wig kept sliding back and not even my GUM would cooperate. Heigh-ho. What am I gonna do, throw her out? We don’t throw out wigs in this family!

Day 12: the Peg Bundy wig! Worn for Halloween 2012. It's cute. πŸ’–βœ¨βœ¨βœ¨
Ah, the Peg Bundy…one of my favorites! I liked how this whole look came together. And being so sick, it even raised my spirits!

Yesterday's clouds were real plump and juicy. ☁️☁️☁️
These big ol’ cumulus clouds look like whipped cream…mmmm…whipped creeeeam. Oh yeah, speaking of food/my low-carb diet, officially this morning I am the same weight as my husband! FINALLY! I’ve lost a little over 50 pounds and only have 12 to go! YAYYYYYY I might even make it to my goal, which was back to my pre-pregnancy weight by December 3rd.

Yes! (thanks @madlymazzy) πŸ˜‚
Christopher sent this to me and I laughed and laughed.

Day 13: the pink bob! Always a good time. πŸŒΈπŸ’•βœ¨βœ¨βœ¨
Finally it’s…the pink bob! One of my favorites, and worn many times with many different outfits.

party on, garth
Here’s Joshy with it on, HA HA. Ta ta!

Rainbows and mushrooms and new art

Rainbows and mushrooms and new art

Recently acquired neon rainbow ball. For, er, "the baby". 🌈
Hey blarg. Here’s a fun neon rainbow ball we bought at the costume shop “for the baby” (but really for ME).

Yes, yes I would. 🌈🌈🌈
You can find rainbows everywhere, if you want to.

Into it πŸ’–(thanks @chloemackey)
See?

I sat in an old Ford Mustang yesterday that was sitting for sale outside the tire place. It was kind of sexy.
Recently I had to go to the tire shop to have a tire fixed, and while I was waiting I noticed a classic Mustang for sale parked outside. It happened to be unlocked, so I happened to sit inside. I love old cars! My friend Stephanie suggested I put together an outfit and go back for a photoshoot. I like the way her mind thinks!

My mother has been texting me old photos. I love this one of my brother and I in McCall, Idaho--a little snow never stopped me from sunbathing! 😎
Here’s some nostalgia: my little brother and I in McCall, Idaho. I was a hardcore sunbather during my teenage years, snow be damned!

Summer of 2017 started out rainy and is ending beautiful and sunny. 🌞
Last day of summer! At least it was a sunny day.

Beanie weather already? So much for an Indian summer. πŸƒπŸ‚πŸƒ
Now it’s like, Fall and stuff over here. Harrumph.

The dogs wait up.
Actually I like Fall. It’s mostly still sunny, the colors are changing, the blackberries are ripe…mmmmmm…

A crocus blooming in September? Weird.
And yet my neighbor has crocuses blooming? Weeeeird.

Found this in the front yard. Weed?
We have some new things growing in our yard as well.

#tbt: "Portrait of Madame X", at the Met, NYC 2015. I took so many pictures on that trip, I have lots of favorites I never posted!
Would you believe I still have a bunch of never-posted NYC pictures from 2 years ago? Here’s “Portrait of Madame X”. Beautiful.

This might be the perfect weekend for a family nature hike. πŸƒπŸ‚πŸŒ²
I’m typing this with wet nails while my son crawls around the room trying to put everything in his mouth. Multi-tasking. Hard.

Portrait of a Woman Pumping at Work. πŸ’¦πŸ’¦πŸ’¦
Speaking of, here I am pumping at work the other day. Classy!

Family nature hike!
Family hike this weekend!

Beautiful Fall day. πŸŒ²πŸƒπŸ‚
So pretty!

That's a big leaf πŸƒ
I found a monster leaf…

Fungus among us. πŸ„
…mushrooms…

Oh, hello πŸ’™
And some crazy blue mushrooms!

Nature dogs are happy dogs. 🌿
The dogs were happy.

Farmer's Market today with Mr. Baby.
Yesterday we took the baby to a Farmer’s Market. I ogled pastries, crepes and pies, but only purchased a small box of strawberries.

Just my son, relaxing on Maggie's dog bed. πŸ˜‚
Mr. Baby decided to test drive Maggie’s dog bed.

New painting in my Etsy shop! My second rainbow glitter Mandala. 🌈✨✨✨
And I finally got around to posting the second rainbow glitter Mandala in my Etsy shop! HERE!

Oh now baby’s fussing. See ya later, alligators.

Flower Power

Another beautiful day! 🌞
Hellerrrr, blerrrrg. I can’t believe it’s June already.

Josh took the baby for a drive so I could have a little "me" time.
We are still going back and forth between weather like above–70’s, sunny fabbuu–to weather like today–overcast, low 60’s, blerp. Totally normal. Unless it’s an especially hot year, summer in Seattle doesn’t start until July.

My favorite of the Prey series. The bad guys are nicknamed "Big" and "Little".
I’m currently re-reading (saves $) all my Prey books. This particular one is probably my favorite–the bad guys are nicknamed “Big” and “Little”, and they are antique dealers.

Breastfeeding selfie. Belfie?
A breastfeeding selfie, because why not? I still do it all day long.

Dragonfly! πŸ’›
In real life this dragonfly was massive and silver. In the iphone photo he nearly blends into the flowering bush behind him.

Love the mood here (thanks @lulannie) πŸ’™πŸ’š
Spotted on IG. I love the colors.

My portrait of Brigitte Bardot, 2010. ✨✨✨
Josh has had a nasty cold for the past week and somehow, AMAZINGLY, Mr. Baby and I have not caught it. I know that his immune system is boosted by breast milk, but what about mine? How am I so lucky? It’s a first.

The little geisha painting is finally done! Now I just need a sunny day to photograph it properly for Etsy. ✨
Finally finished this sucker up. I was debating whether or not to paint calla lilies next or Marilyn Monroe, and then I just happened to flick on the TV and what should be playing but a MM marathon! And “Niagara”. BOOM DEBATE SOLVED.

Field of Doggy Dreams.
Flashback to one of my happy places: Marymoor Park and doggy dogs.

Salmonberries are blooming.
Salmonberries are popping up on our walks again.

The ivy in the backyard keeps expanding.
Will the ivy on the fence in the backyard keep spreading until it covers the entire back wall?

Baby M. on his colorful quilt from Aunt Kissy @dubtrance πŸ’–βœ¨βœ¨
Mr. Baby color-coordinating with the blankie that Aunt Kissy made him.

"Glitter Geisha" is available in my Etsy shop! πŸ’–βœ¨βœ¨βœ¨
“Glitter Geisha”. For sale here! At only 30$, it’s practically a steal, Camille.

Neon in nature! (No editing needed)
A neon pink rose outside my work. No photo editing required.

It's Friday you say?!?
Friiiiidaaaaaaayyyyy doesn’t mean a whole lot because I work on Saturday.

Our three tomato plants.
Thanks to my MIL and the 435849 tomato plants she planted this year, we scored 3 baby plants to raise.

Rosy.
Stop and smell the roses! These ones smelled delicious.

I'm blue dah ba dee ba da doo...πŸ’™
Feeling BLUE yesterday.

Baby is down for a nap, dogs have been walked, pancakes have been inhaled (diet starts tomorrow, I SWEAR) (groan), now it’s time for me to go down to the basement and PAINT PAINT PAINT! Happy days, bloggeroos!

Want you to know, I’m a rainbow too

Want you to know, I’m a rainbow too

Love this time of year. 🌸🌸🌸
Hallo blog! I don’t have a lot of confidence that I will be able to get through this entry without WAHHHHHH, but let’s give it a whirl!

Gorgeous tulip.
I had to manipulate my son into a nap this morning with a walk AND a drive, but I feel like any second now he’s gonna wake up.

πŸ’šπŸ’œ
Maybe he’ll surprise me. I miss the days of the three hour naps. I was so SPOILED then!

Oh yeah πŸ“πŸ“πŸ“
The strawberries at the local fruit stand are the best I’ve had in ages. I could smell them from several feet away.

Happy weekend! 🌿
Ahhh sprrrrriiiiiiiing.

Send help!
BLEGH! He bleached his hair to dye it a lighter shade of brown and it was this terrifying orange mop for several hours. SCARY!

Love this purple house πŸ’œπŸ’—πŸ’œ
Spotted this adorable purple house on a baby nap-inducing drive last weekend. Love the pink accents. More houses should look this cute!

Jumbo candy buttons! (verdict: not as tasty as original)
I had high hopes for these jumbo candy buttons but they were gross. Bear Cub even rejected them!

Marymoor Park...we didn't lose Maggie this time!
We went to Marymoor Park again last weekend and this time, didn’t lose Maggie dog! Alriiiiight.

Beautiful day.
Talk about a beautiful day.

Field of Dogs 🌿
Not nearly as crowded as the last time we were there, either. That was ridic.

My boys. πŸ’™πŸ’™
We wanted him to be more awake for the park experience so Josh carried him around in the Ergo. He’s about 18 pounds these days, there’s no way my back can take it. Grrrrr.

Poor old Maggie is hobbling today, but she had a great time yesterday! πŸ’¦
Maggie and Bear Cub got their swim on.

Went back to work last week, part-time. As much as I enjoy my son (and Netflix), I missed dressing up every day. Interacting with adults. Helping people. And πŸ’΅.
Post-work self-portrait. Feels nice to be doing hair and make-up and talking to adults again.

πŸ’šπŸ’œβœ¨
Loving all the color in our front yard.

Dogwood blossoms. 🌸
The dogwood’s in bloom!

Dreamy floral walls (thanks @theladyofthegoldrings).
Spotted on IG. Bathroom inspiration!

The smell of lilacs is one of my favorite spring/summer scents.
The lilac is blooming, and our backyard smells so good.

Bear Cub guarding.
Bear Cub guards the baby. Sometimes in the afternoon we sit on the back porch and listen to reggae.

This is not the look: sunglasses over glasses edition.
Yesterday after work. I AM A DORK.

One of my patients does this cool paper art called "quilling".
One of my patients does this cool paper art called “quilling”. Maybe I should look into it!

That’s it? I did it! YES!

Spring fling

Spring fling

I πŸ’—the flowering almond tree.
Happy spring, blerg! I love the flowering almond tree in our backyard this time of year, it’s so dreeeeamy.

These guys. πŸ’•
Speaking of dreamy. I just put the little dude down again for his first nap of the day…I’m hoping it takes this time. He went down for less than an hour and then was fussing with a wet diaper. I NEED his first nap of the day to be at least two hours…often it’s his only nap! I mean, what? Does this kid not like to sleep, or something? How different from his mom.

Aunt Kissy (@dubtrance) crocheting a blanket for Baby M. while we watched Roseanne and Ab Fab last night. πŸ’–
Look who came in for a visit…Aunt Kissy! I didn’t want him visiting while the baby was so young, but he INSISTED and sort of ignored my protests and Corinne bought him a train ticket. He spent half the week with her–half of which must have sucked because she started her period! She actually spent one whole day in bed. Lame.

Breakfast of champions: @dubtrance made the Monte Cristo breakfast casserole.
Despite my concerns, his visit with us ended up going great. Only one nap was disturbed! We binge-watched “Ab Fab”, he made the Monte Cristo casserole above (mmmm), delicious curry and put together the crockpot roast that I started to make but was interrupted by a crying baby (such is my life these days).

Lily made herself right at home!
Bear Cub appeared jealous of Lily (she sure is a grumpy Cub) but Lily was a snuggle dog as usual.

Josh + Lily. πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™
Here she is cuddling with Joshy.

Baby's first space boots. 🌟✨✨
I had bought these cool space boots for Ronia years ago, but she had already outgrown them by the time I gave them to Brenna. I kept them for my “future child” (always optimistic!) and POW! Here they are!

“He’s allowed to wear fabulous things now, at this age,” remarked my neighbor when she saw the boots.

“He can wear fabulous things ANY time,” I sniffed. I mean silver is timeless!

Spring fling. 🌸
I don’t believe in age limits for glitter nail polish, either.

Aunt Kissy @dubtrance has a cuddle with M.. πŸ’™
My mother calls him “Smootie”, Josh calls him “Bean”, I call him “Goo” and Aunt Kissy calls him “Pork Chop”.

Joshy is a punk.
With help from Christopher, Josh formed his long ass hair into a fun Mohawk before cutting and dying it.

Joshy' self-portrait with baby and turntables. πŸ’•
HOT.

18 years of friendship! 🌈🌟✨
18 years (minus three when we weren’t speaking to each other) of friendship! I cropped my hammer pants out of the picture. This was a re-creation of a shot of Christopher and I at Trancelot a million years ago, but I can’t seem to locate the original. Dammit!

Just a typical Sunday afternoon!
Turban Sunday! What could be better?

Maggie and Bear Cub grazing. 🌿
We never miss our daily dog walk.

M. and Aunty Corinne. πŸ’•
On Monday before I had to drive Christopher to the train station, Aunty Corinne came by for a visit.

Corinne is surrounded by a pack of dogs.
And was immediately surrounded by dogs! The baby fussed much of the time she was over but I’m still glad she came by for a visit. It happens so rarely.

Sunny this morning but still coo-oooold!
Brrrrrr. Still quite cold in the morning.

🌸🌸🌸
Think Pink!

Love these colorful blooms.
I never know what these colorful shrubs are, but they catch my eye every year.

In the front yard. πŸ’œ
Not sure what these are either, but they pop up in the front yard every year.

Maybe I should paint a geisha for my next mini painting! (thanks @theladyofthegoldrings)
This geisha photo spotted on IG inspired me for my next mini painting.

I like this wig. How sad is that that I can only watch "Untucked" and recaps because I don't get VH1??! Bring back "Drag Race" to Logo, @rupaulsdragrace!
Meanwhile, I’m having to get my “Drag Race” fix by watching “Untucked” and recaps on Youtube. BOO, LOGO.

Today's walkies.
Yesterday afternoon my neighbor graciously came over and watched Goo while I walked the dogs. Her daughter is about to have her second child and I suspect I won’t be seeing her much after that, so I’m using her as much as possible!

🌷🌷🌷
Spotted this tulip in my neighbor’s front yard.

More grape hyacinth in the backyard. πŸ’™
The grape hyacinth is everywhere. In our backyard planter, in our front and back yards, all over my neighbor’s lawns…pretty pretty.

Hyacinth everywhere!
And more hyacinth!

My mother is currently in San Francisco, awaiting surgery in 11 days to have the benign spinal tumor she’s had for 10 years removed. I pray for her every day! I would be there if I could, but I have a little tiny baby right now. Sigh.Β Currently I just finished 10 minutes on the Elliptical trainer (my plantar fasciities did not enjoy it), painted a little on the new geisha painting and the old Joan painting, and am now going to lift some weights while watching “30 Rock”. Good times? Are we having fun yet?

New painting and spring flowers

New painting and spring flowers

Spring-colored cauliflower. πŸ’›πŸ’œπŸ’š
Happy spring! (cauliflower). I’m blogging today before Christopher descends upon us sometime this evening. I already took the dogs and baby out for our daily walk, now the baby is down for what I hope will be a loooooong nap because the last couple of days he’s only taking one nap a day. Oof.

The magnolia tree is beginning to blossom.
Here comes the magnolia tree! I’m hoping to get a few pictures of it in full blossom before the coastal winds whip all the petals off. It’s a beautiful tree.

Today's color: Aqua (thanks @richardquartley)
Feeeeling everything about this gorgeous aqua photo, spotted on IG.

Lucite grapes and Kate Moss (both still for sale). πŸ‡
Meanwhile, the Lucite grapes painting sits next to Kate Moss in the parlor. I’m thinking a mini painting of Lucite grapes might be fun.

Family walkies.
Out for family walkies. Look at that big fat baby! Not even three months old yet.

Spying on the neighbors.
These two always find something to bark at when I put him down for a nap. Kind of similar to how they would always bark every time I would take a daytime shower (a thing of the past!).

Switched to my springtime sunglasses. 🌸🌸🌸
My mother asked if I had abandoned my bangs already after she saw this photo. Nah, I just don’t see any point in “doing” them if my only activities are walking the dogs at the park and then breastfeeding allll dayyyy looooong. You understand. Sometimes I put eyeliner on, though. And I wear earrings every day. Trying! Trying!

White blossoms on our walk today.
Not sure what this beautiful white-blossomed tree is in my neighbor’s front yard, but I think it’s pretty pretty!

Beautiful sunset tonight.
Beautiful sunset out of the nursery window.

Flying baby alert!
Oh these two cuties. My mother bought him those leggings with the dino feet and I’m LOVING THEM. He has so many cute clothes (that he is rapidly outgrowing).

Think pink πŸ’–
‘member this heart Mandala? Still for sale. I knocked the price all the way down to 80$ sometime last year and then just kept it there.

New mini painting in my Etsy shop! "Love is a Glitter VW". πŸ’–πŸŒŸβœ¨βœ¨
New mini painting! This little baby is called “Love is a Glitter VW” and it’s available HERE! I love this one. Give it long enough around the house and I probably won’t sell it at all.

Gorgeous day out there! 🌞
Ahhhh Monday the weather was so glorious. I made it a point to get outside as much as possible.

Chomping on a strawberry popsicle and enjoying the sun with Bear Cub on Monday.
In the afternoon I ate a strawberry popsicle and romped with Bear Schnubs outside in the backyard a bit.

Bear Cub!
She’s always a happy Cub outside!

M.'s first trip to the beach was nearly foiled when Josh and I both got stuck in quicksand! Luckily we didn't lose shoes (or a baby). Siiiiiigh.
When Josh got home from work, we packed up the whole fam and drove over to a beach park that we hadn’t been to in a long time. It was M.’s first beach experience, and it almost went VERY BADLY because as Josh and I were strolling to the water’s edge, we both got stuck in quicksand! As you can see from the picture, Josh went in all the way up to his thighs. I went up to my knees, and after I made it out stood there with my heart stopped, watching Josh struggle to get free…all the while with the baby strapped to his chest. Luckily he didn’t fall, and we didn’t lose a shoe, but it was an overall SUCKY (ha ha) experience and now I don’t trust that beach anymore. Dammit.

Love rocks.
I did see a heart-shaped rock, though. That was nice.

Water dogs! πŸ’¦
Other than the quicksand, it was a pleasant experience. Maybe we learned a lesson here…don’t trust the shoreline. Especially when you have a baby attached to your body.

Graffiti in nature
I’ve always liked that particular graffiti: “Not all who wander are lost“.

Maude braids.
First attempt at Maude braids in a long time, yesterday. Today’s version went a little smoother.

πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ’š
And that brings us to today’s monster butt! I’ll be back next week with pictures of our antics with Aunt Kissy. Always a good time!

Sexy shows and spring flowers

Sexy shows and spring flowers

I'm binge-watching "Sex and the City" during my breast-feeding marathon sessions. Most of Carrie's style I find hideous, but I did like this rainbow dress. 🌈
Happy Friday, blerg! Can you believe tomorrow is April already??! During my breastfeeding couch marathons, I’m working my way through “Sex and the City” (again). I started at Season 4 and watched it through to the end; now I’m back at Season 1. I hate 96% of Carrie’s outfits but this little rainbow dress was cuuuute. I also cried approximately 5 times while watching this show. Motherhood changes you. I am a total sap now.

I'd totally wear these grape earrings that Samantha has on in Season 6. πŸ‡
I also like these grape earrings Samantha is wearing near the end of Season 6.

Josh re-finished this table into a sexy shiny teal and aqua. πŸ’¦
Check out the sexy paint job that Josh did on this unfinished wooden table his parents dumped under our back patio. Maybe someday he’ll paint the unfinished chairs to match! Ooooh, ahhhh.

These just popped up in the front yard--periwinkles?
Dear Spring, I love you and all of your flowers and crisp sunny days. Hey, is that trash? Funny that I didn’t notice it while I was taking the picture.

Christina came by for a visit. πŸ’™
A week ago we had a visit from one of Josh’s co-workers. She brought M. a fun children’s book about dogs and a stuffed elephant, gave him lots of snuggles and then went on a house tour with us where she paid attention to ALL of the art (something that very few houseguests do–what a treat!).

Florals for homes? Into it! (thanks @jasoncampbellstudio) 🌸
Spotted on IG–spring florals for your home exterior? I’d do it.

I've started a new line of miniature dollhouse paintings! Each one comes with a tiny easel that I handpaint/hand-glitter. First up is Louise Brooks! Check out my Etsy shop for details, http://ift.tt/1vbQsot 🌟✨✨
It’s the first in my new line of miniature/dollhouse paintings! This was really fun to do. It’s for sale in my Etsy shop, HERE.

Currently reading for the first time. I know, it's a children's book...but it's about all my baby brain can handle at the moment. Geez the "Great Brain" sure is a hustler.
Found this in the bookcase and I’m giving it a spin. It’s a children’s book, but as it turns out my baby brain can’t handle anything too…er, complex. The “Great Brain” is a major hustler! I keep getting irritated at him on the main character’s behalf. Too bad I got rid of my Ramona Quimby books, I bet I’d enjoy those right about now.

Finally caved and bought myself some "walking" shoes...between the plantar fasciitis and giant baby boobs, I'm not gonna be running for a while. 😭
I finally bit the bullet and bought myself some decent “walking” shoes, since all I’m doing is walking these days and all of the Brooks barefoot running shoes I have aggravate the hell out of my plantar fasciitis, which hurts every day all day long. Thank goodness just in my left foot, but still, UGH KNOCK IT OFF, BODY.

Minty fresh. 🌿
I’ve started painting my nails again. I enjoy a pastel nail for springtime.

Spring hits the bowling ball garden.
A lone daffodil popped up in the bowling ball garden.

Hoopers! Art marker/Sharpie, 2011.
Corinne got me thinking about hooping again. I could always dust off the hoop and have some fun in the backyard…after I picked up all the dog poop, of course. Gross.

Maggie dog, begging for ________.
Who’s that shaggy dog?

Help Mumma sweetie darlingggg how can I watch Season 9 of RPDR without cable??! I'm not seeing full episodes available on Logo. 😭
DEPRESSED because RuPaul’s Drag Race, my favorite reality TV show of all time, switched from Logo to VH1 and for some horrible reason the full episodes of the new season aren’t available to watch on Logo. WHY RU WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS TO ME? There has GOT to be a way I can watch it without cable. Who in the hell has cable these days, anyway? Seriously.

Wig Wednesday: fun dress-up night number 36546765 with the Broad and Josh, circa 2011.
2011, a year that I was apparently skinny. Look at those arms! Sob! I never appreciated it. Youth is wasted on the young.

Painted over the first Joan Crawford painting and chose another pose. Let's try this again! πŸ˜…
The current Joan Crawford painting was giving me fits so I painted over the whole damn thing, chose a different pose from the same session, and started over. I rarely paint over paintings but it was that bad.

Color inspiration! (thanks @taxcollection) 🌈
More spring color inspiration, thanks to Instagram.

Spotted a low rainbow today. Can you see it? 🌈
Yesterday I spotted a very low-hanging rainbow in the sky. Can you see it?

Had a long overdue haircut tonight by the fabulous @erikaniklason3. She always makes me feel pretty pretty! πŸ’™
Finally (it happened to me) I got a haircut! I was so overdue. I tried cutting my bangs myself a few weeks ago and it was hopeless, they had grown out too much. Speaking of haircuts, Christopher aka Kissyfur aka Smitty is coming into town next week, and promises to do something with Josh’s current mop. Hooray!

In the front yard. πŸ’•πŸŒΈ
Spotted this morning in the front yard.

Beautiful morning for a baby/dog walk.
We went for an earlier-than-usual baby/dogwalk today, but that’s what happens when you’re up at 5:30 in the morning. However, I can’t complain…Baby M. has slept through the night for the last 4 nights in a row! Squeal! Squeak! I knew he could do it! Catch you later, blog-logs.
