Random Thought Thursday

"What was normal in the evening by the morning seems insane."
-Bright Eyes

-You all know that it's Sex AND the City, right? Not Sex IN the City. Not a fan (at all) and never seen either movie, but for some reason it makes me nuts that people get it wrong.

-Last weekend I sat by the pool in 50 SPF and a hat. Yes, I'm that girl now. A far cry from my teenaged days on the beaches of Malibu covered in baby oil. In my defense, the hat was mostly to keep the pink in my hair from bleaching out and the 50 was all I had since it was what I put on Little Bird. But, still, there I was...

-I recently blurted out to my husband that I want to learn to play the banjo... and I think I mean it.

-So you know the socially-conscious shoe company called Toms? Well, the deal is you buy a pair and they give a pair to a child in need. There are amazing stories of kids who can't attend school because they have no shoes. This company's one-for-one program is pretty amazing. But here's the thing... I ordered a pair (I'm very socially aware, you know) but they're a little too big. So, I had to send them back in exchange for a different size. But what if those don't really fit either and I have to make a return? Think they'll go into an impoverished nation and snatch back a pair of shoes from some little kid?

-I may have mentioned that my kid loves books. True Story. This morning, I watched my husband try to read the paper (wall street journal: eeeewww) but the bird wanted to read her books with him. She read this one to him:

and made him read this one to her:

and then they read this one to each other:

It's okay, you can admit that it's pretty freaking cute.

Banjo. For real. Giddy up.

Super cute- but you know I've always thought that.

You should do your whole head pink-I think that would make more of a statement.

I'm an SPF 50 and then some gal. I've always been on the pasty side, and the one or two summers i tried to get dark have left my face with some nasty damage. I look like a circus freak.

I'm too lazy to learn anything new.

Wicked cute pics. Of cute hubby and kid.
