Odds and Ends

1. I spent most of yesterday being filmed for a documentary featuring stylish moms. (What the WHAT? How super cool/exciting/insane is that?? I can’t wait to see!) I just had to share this photo because I can’t stop laughing. First off, Wito is the little speck in the distance, about to be taken out to sea by the tide. Secondly, little miss Wita jumped into the ocean within 5 minutes of arriving at the location, and spent the next hour or two blissfully running around like a drowned rat. And there I am, trying my best to look calm, cool, and collected (and stylish, to boot!) while peripherally watching my children head straight towards their watery demise. Note to self: if ever another opportunity presents itself involving filming my children on the beach, BRING A BABYSITTER.

2. Is 2012 gearing up to be a year of travel, like yours truly? I did a short Hair Thursday video on my favorite travel hair products. Check it out, if you feel so inclined. (Also, check out my new hot pink lipstick that was 6 bucks! CoverGirl Lip Perfection in Eternal #350.)

3. We are in the thick of Stop The Thumb Sucking mania. We’ve successfully made it to Day 5, thanks to a goofy-looking thumb glove. More about that here.

4. Vitamix post! I will definitely get cracking on that. Keep in mind, though, that it will only be about why I chose the Vitamix over the Blendtec, not a head-to-head comparison, since I don’t own both blenders. Just my personal pros and cons…and maybe a video of one of our favorite smoothie recipes.

Ready, break! Have a great weekend, everyone!

    1. You are brave, being filmed and bringing the kids but no sitter. BRAVE.
    2. What a gorgeous setting!
    3. You look like you’re about to take flight. I love it!

      I know! I had our nanny with the kids during most of the day’s shoot, but decided to let her go home once D met us at the beach. So, actually, D was there with me, but as you can see, he was all about getting photos. (Glad he got the above one, for sure!)

    Holy what?! That is amazing, lady. How exciting! You’ll have to keep us posted on the documentary. We obviously want to see it. :) And that photo is gorgeous.

    Also, I haven’t been by Hair Thursday in a while, so I’m kind of giddy to catch up. Yay!

    This made me laugh as I have a little boy who is obsessed with water, which makes any trip to the beach an exhausting day out! He’s 2 1/2 and doesn’t understand why we won’t let go of him when he’s in the water. When out of the water he walways makes a run for it. Lifeguards find it pretty funny, watching me run after a very fast 2 year old who won’t keep away from the waves. Can’t wait to hear more about your documentary, LOVE your blog :)

      Nope! In fact, I had several wardrobe changes and it was all at least a year old! :)
