An extremely relatable bathroom adventure with shapewear
On this particular evening I was in full Spanx. I did look great in the dress, but I had not thought about how bathroom breaks would work. I took a bathroom break during the award ceremony and it was exhausting.
I’m totally going to overshare here…
17 gingerbread house fails that made the sugary housing market crash
Not every gingerbread house attempt turns out as sweet and pretty as the one above. Sometimes the sweet turns sour and you end up pouring icing over the wreckage and calling it a day. Not all of us are meant to be baked good architects (myself included!) but most of these are pretty hilarious in their chaos. Let’s revel in the holiday spirit of trying our best. It’s the thought that counts and it all tastes yummy in the end, right?
Bollocks, Pulp Fiction, & Oregon Trail: 9 subversive cross-stitch patterns
When you’re more about the LOLs and less about the “live laugh love,” these are the subversive cross-stitch patterns for you. Most are DIY patterns you can download, but a few are available to purchase completed, so you can find something no matter your skill level.
From bollocks to Pulp Fiction to IT Crowd references to Oregon Trail, the cross-stitch market has gone hilarious…
I might just need some of these ultra weird shoes (and some that are SUPER cute)
Don’t ask how I ran across these super weird shoes on Amazon. It was a series of weird events that led to fish shoes. But now you do and nobody can go back from this. You’re in it with me and we must proceed to see the weirdest shoes I was able to find. Are these your new gag gift, white elephant present, birthday gift for that weird uncle, or your own brand new fish sandals, pug slides, or grass-lined flip-flops?
Either way, you’ve got to see these weird shoes and sandals (and some that are downright adorable!)…
The Holidays are coming: We dare you to send this hilarious “holiday application form” to your family this year!
Each year, The Holiday Conversations in our extended family starts in mid-July, when our little unit begins strategizing with our in-laws, to get out ahead of the game. It’s preemptive damage control. Much like leaving a play-date en-masse, we like to present a united front when the parents-in-law begin sniffing around our holiday plans. Our plans for this year’s Thanksgiving were already solidified weeks ago, but I’d like to share it here in case anyone finds it useful. I’ve updated it for the 2015 calendar year…
My favorite geeky April Fool’s tradition
April Fool’s day went from my most loathed made-up holiday (Valentine’s Day is a close second) to one of my favorite days of the year. That’s all because of Think Geek…
Snarky cats, ninja squirrels, and fish poop art are just a FEW of the reasons why Pithitude will be your new favorite Etsy shop
Our latest sponsor Pithitude is the outlet that designer and illustrator Tamara Kraft needs for her whimsical and deviant sense of humor. We all get to reap the benefits of this outlet-in-the-form-of-an-Etsy-shop, with super-awesome goods and gifts! Ninja squirrels, cursing ostriches, and coffee fish poop… All these things and more you will see as I introduce you to my new favorite Etsy shop.
Get drunk, have sex everyday, buy new underwear, and other infertility insights
Infertility sucks, no two ways about it. Some parts of this have made me angry and bitter, but the hilarity that has ensued during the surreal conversations I’ve had about it has at least given me some uncomfortable stories to tell my future progeny and their prom dates. I plan to use them as part of the explanation I give for why they don’t have a college fund and why we live in a van down by the river.
