Remember this lovely sight?

Above are my amazingly awesome, perfectly pinnable hanging laundry baskets in my hall closet. I have six of them. They are better than chocolate. And Cheez-Its. (I’m in my 4th month of gluten-free eating, and it’s been way easier than I expected. Barring the lack of Cheez-Its. I LONG FOR THE CHEEZ-ITS.)

Except that…well, my amazingly awesome, perfectly pinnable hanging laundry baskets don’t look like that all the time. They pretty much look like this.

(And that’s on a good day. A really good one.)

Why does this happen, pray tell? Well, as many of you know, laundry is a beeeyotch to keep up with these days. A family of four keeps those baskets filled every. single. day. Also, my 7-year-old son who’s been reading for over four years seems to suddenly render himself illiterate when gazing at the labeled (P-TOUCH FTW) baskets.

Minor pet peeve. MINOR.

My major pet peeve is stain-treating. I can not deal. I hate it. I spend an exorbitant amount of time treating stains in my laundry room. I mean, you know, KIDS. Messy. Gah, stains. Enter Tide Pods.  The little packets available at Target are a triple threat of detergent, stain remover, and brightener in one. Do you know what that means? No stain-treating beforehand. Glory glory hallelujah.

Now, come out with an unscented version and my dreams will come true.

Have you all entered the Little Bit Goes a Long Way Sweepstakes yet? A $300 Target giftcard is up for grabs, folks. I’ve been eating up the comments on how you all relax and enjoy the little things. So much so that I wanted to put together an old school Whoorl pie chart documenting the most popular ways to chill, but alas, I had to use that time to lecture my son on what the words “darks,” “colors,” and “lights” mean. Official rules are here.

The Bachelor Recap: Women (Boringly) Tell All

I’m not sure if last night’s episode deserves its own video, but here ya go. (I was actually more intrigued by one of the audience members than the bachelorettes.)

Seriously, you guys. This young lady is far too invested in next week’s preview of The Bachelor.

Will it Beard?

Considering the amount of emails I received about this website over the past few weeks, it’s obviously clear to you all that I have a beard fetish. (p.s. -Jason Sudeikis’ beard was perfection at The Oscars last night.) This is too good, and beyond the beard antics, this dude has some great shirts.

Are you pro or anti-beard?

Is this not the best thing you’ve ever seen? I’m partial to 1938, 1954, 1958, 1994, 2005, 2008, and 2010. What about you?
