Parties, Piggies, and Problems

The following is an excerpt from an actual conversation with The MR:

Him: Hon, who is Thirty One?

Me: Why?

Him: Because they authorized for a penny on our bank account.


Me: Oh, cuz the party's not over.

Him: What party?

Me: The Thirty One party


Him: What do they sell?
(condescending tone)

Me: The CUTEST bags and totes and you can personalize them!!

(I raised my voice one octave as to sound younger and cheerful-
trying to deflect from the conversation)

Him: You don't have enough bags?

Me: I only have one with a squirrel on it and this one is going to have MISS SQUIRREL embroidered on it!!

Him: Did you get me anything? Maybe I need a new bag.

(now there's an undertone of sarcasm in his voice)

Me:  What would you put on your bag?

Him: "THE MR." What else???

So then we laughed and I thought-
are there any manly looking bags
and then I thought
there isn't anything manly about a
personalized tote-

But I am TOTALLY getting him a shirt personalized that says


I have a few items from Thirty One already- but they were all gifts -
so this is my first one to personalize...
I will pretend to be surprised when i open it-

Of course my memory is KAAAA-RAP these days-
so it just might be a surprise!!!

So this evening (despite the pain in my toes)
we went on a double date with the neighbors-

And I can call it  a "date" because
when the hostess walked us to our
Whoo hoo!

I was able to eat and keep everything down
because NO ONE licked anything and
placed it on or in a shared surface-
I wanted to pepper and salt my food so badly-
but I am ANTI SHAKER for the rest of my forever!!!
I think I am going to have to steal
ask for some of those packets from McDs!


It was decided last night that they are not broken.
Did a DR tell me this? Was I examined by a professional?
Were they xrayed?
No. No. and No.

The MR decided (in his infinite wisdom)
that they are NOT broken if he can
(Imagine a hard grip on those precious pudgy piggies)

He said that I would have "gone through the roof"
if they were broken.
There was no way I could have "gone through the roof"
because I was too close to

It hurt. But because of his extensive studies in the field of broken toes, he was able to
determine that they are not broken, only sprained or bruised and they would feel better in the

(DON'T EVER TELL HIM- but they felt better this morning.)
I still limped around because they were sore-
I should totally get an award for my portrayal of
Best Actress in "I Can't Stand Up and Cook because My Toes Are Broken"

(Oh, no- I have to go. The Littlest Little just asked me
"I know this will be a weird question- but how did I get here?"
That should be an ARE YOU FREAKIN' KIDDIN' ME??? moment- )
Wish me luck!


  1. You crack me up! Believe it or not, my Mr. has a personalized tote! It was a gift years ago (not from me), and has just our last name on it. He's a teacher/coach, so it's for papers. I'll text you a picture--I think it looks manly but I'll let you be the judge!

  2. Hahahaha! Good luck with that conversation! Luckily none of mine have asked me that one yet!

  3. Ah...I remember those days of "How did I get here." When I started to answer, the kiddos didn't really want to know. UNTIL, my SIL got pregnant. I survived...barely!

    I once had a broken toe. Holy moly...who would think an itty bitty toe could be so painful! And I felt like I rebroke it several times! Ouch!

    I love Thirty One but don't have any yet! Can you believe that? I'll have to rectify that situation soon!

    After your last post, I'm with you on giving up the shakers for good.

    Glad you got out to a place with no kiddie menus.


  4. Ahaha! I DREAD the day I get asked that by my future children. Do tell us what you said!

  5. Gotta love that birds and bees convo...we've gone into it minimally with my 10 year old. He hushed me after I said the "v" word...guess he wasn't quite ready.

  6. I'm glad your piggies are feeling better! I love Thirty-One Bags! I have way too many of them and, of course, both my sister and sister-in-law had to go and have parties within the past month. Well, I could not show favoritism, so I had to purchase some from both. Let's just say, I think I could be a Thirty-One Consultant now. I just about have enough bags to cover an entire party! I guess the only bad part of my presentation is that they are all in the same print (Yes, I am OCD and I like everything to match).

    Anyway, have fun with the conversation with the littlest little. Give us an update. :)


  7. I can't wait to hear the outcome of this conversation on WTH Wednesday! Play up those piggies as much as you can! I hate cooking, so I'd be in too much pain to cook also! Glad they are feeling better though. :)

  8. I love me some The Mr. I think he should have come out with you because he and Tony sound like they came from the same school of not broken toes. Hilarious post!

  9. Love ya Staci!Thank you! We could arrange for The Mr. to get a fabulous tote in Pink Parisian Pop with his name in Black thread (we wouldn't want to go to feminine of course) :)

    Glad your piggies aren't broken. Good Luck with "the talk"

  10. Oh Lordy! You crack me up! Good luck with the "conversation"!
