Oops, You’re Not My Wife

I headed out to Target the other day (cuz we practically live there), and while perusing the sale racks this guy comes up to me and says, “Honey, what do you think about these shorts?” It wasn’t until he noticed that I had three small children with me that it registered with him that I was not his honey. “Oops,” he said, looking at my kids in confusion. “You’re not my wife.”

His wife popped out from behind another rack and said, “Look at her shoes – you should’ve known by those that she wasn’t me!”

Nope, it shouldn’t have been the fact that I looked NOTHING like his wife that tipped him off. It was definitely the five inch heels.

  • As I mentioned last week {here}, we were invited to the Twin Cities Oscar Experience 2015. It proved to be a fabulous soirée with food, Hollywood fashion and most importantly… giving back to the community! All proceeds are split between non-profits, Twin Cities Film Fest and Aegis Foundation. Cate was unable to attend at the last minute… [Continue Reading]

  • Someone take me back to Arizona asap. Seriously – it’s so stinking cold here in Minnesota! I love my home state, but when you board a plane in 80 degree weather, and return to -5 degrees, it’s rough going. I know, I know – I’m not going to inspire sympathy from many around here. After… [Continue Reading]

    Vacation Rewind
  • I’ve shard in the past my struggles with sleeping. (check out this post – our readers shared TONS of great ideas for getting better sleep at night!) There is nothing like the feeling of being well rested. And if there is any time I’m going to catch up on my zzz’s, it’s while I’m on… [Continue Reading]
