Have I mentioned before that I am heat wimp? I nearly melted this morning as I carried the groceries from the car to the house over and over again.
It may have only lasted four minutes but I'm pretty sure it was the equivalent to completing The Shred.
So, even though I'm in the mood to blog, I'm having a hard time sorting through my melted thoughts and think this will be about the most random post ever.
Here we go:
As a Harry Potter fan, I found this hilarious. Even if it's not true, it's still hilarious. Joe always finds the best stuff on the Web and keeps me very amused during the day.
I am addicted to Beyonce's Halo. It's been on repeat constantly. Thank goodness Madeline is a Sasha Fierce fan and hasn't committed iTunes mutiny. Yet.
And thanks to Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel, Madeline loves to sing "Single Ladies." My favorite part is hearing her sing, "Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!" If you see her, you must request a performance. It's awesome.
(Side note: this was the only redeeming aspect about that movie. I do not recommend it for viewing pleasure.)
Madeline is really into pretend play these day which I love. Her most recent thing is to be Joe or me. She'll grab my wallet, stick it under her arm and walk around the house saying, "I'm Katie Mayes, I'm Katie Mayes."
Other times she'll pick up Joe's keys and wallet and says, "I'm Joe Mayes." Then she'll throw the keys and wallet on the kitchen table and yell, "I'm home and I'm gonna tickle you!!"
I certain it's the cutest thing I've ever seen. I may have declared that before but this time I really mean it. (At least until the next cutest thing comes along.)
Last week, we picked up McDonald's for dinner and went fishing at the White River. Since we were doing a McDonald's dinner at the White River, I didn't feel the need to dress up.
Instead, I changed into my 13-year-old Teva's with scorpions (which I thought were just so cool in the seventh grade) and a 7-year-old tie-dye Joe's Crab Shack shirt from when I was a waitress in college.
While Joe and Madeline fished, I put my chair directly into the White River so I could put my feet in the cool water and ate a huge box of fries.
Clearly not my classiest moment.
So, of course, even though we're out in the remote wilderness of Indiana, the only people we see all evening are an old high school friend and her husband. (Laura, you better not comment that I looked fine or anything; I'll own my hickness.)
But, seriously? How many times in my life am I wearing Teva's and eating fries while SITTING IN THE WHITE RIVER?!
That is a moment I would like to get as a do-over.
I'm not saying I would re-do with pearls and heels. I just mean that I would not choose footwear with Velcro. Or eat that many fries in one sitting. Or put my chair in the middle of a river.
Although I will confess that in the summer, it's not typical for me to be a classy dresser. For example, right now I'm wearing my swimsuit cover-up as a dress because it's just so comfy.
Don't worry, I don't leave the house in it. But I think Tim Gunn would disapprove of wearing it even behind closed doors. He might even need to call a caucus about it.
I think that's about everything. Y'all have a great weekend!
