Family Time, Photography, Find Friends & Fancy Drink Friday

After discovering my new girl crush, I was feeling really motivated around the house. For a minute there. I did the dishes.

I also put my dishsoap in a pretty bottle like the Bargain Boarders do, but now the bottle is all slippery and seems too big for my hand and the soap takes too long to come out. It is pretty, but I don't think Mr. Ashley is going to be impressed enough to put up with it.

Talk about taking the wind out of my sails.

I can't even move on to the Fancy Drinks part of the day because Mr. Ashley has to pick up the Raspberry Vodka and Pink Lemonade while he's out.

I'm going to do my Friend Finding (aka blog reading and commenting) later with the Fancy Drinks. Although I did comment on the new girl crush's blog first thing...just to show her that I'm serious. And Clemsongirl, BACK OFF. Everyone knows you're a Girl Crush Whore. I thought I was special. She's mine, I need her, you're already perfect, just keep loving me, thanks.

Photography...yeah I've got to do that too. You might not get more than a "look at this sweet newborn" photography post today. I have so much shit that I HAVE to do re: photography, that I don't have a lot of time for the stuff I WANT to do re: photography.

Why can't I just win the lottery? I could become a full time, mobile blogger, I could rent the cruise ship for the Ashley's Closet Cruise, I could hire a fleet of housekeepers and a nanny, I could travel, I could move, I could open the coolest children's photography studio ever, take pictures whenever I want and have a full staff to deal with editing and phone calls and advertising and ordering, I could buy everything I ever wanted from Pottery Barn AND J. Crew, I could get that boob job and some Botox.

I could do so much for the world.

Okay, I'm going to try to heave myself off of the couch and get back to prettying up the house. I used to love this stuff, you know. I have a ton of cool stuff decor wise. Somewhere under all of these toys.

Ashley - you know I already love you in a totally creepy stalkerish way but now you are channelling Janis in your tag line??? Be still my beating heart!

Ashley said...

I think you're my new Girl Crush. It used to Maggie Mason from Mighty Girl but you're more amusing...and dirtier.

Raspberry Vodka and pink lemondade? Sounds good! What are you making?

I got started on my family time last night when the power went out for almost an hour and we all sat around complaining about not having anything to do.
As for the photography part of my day, I think I'll finallt get around to dumping the rest of the photos off of my camera and onto my computer for safe-keeping. i've been meaning to do it for about a month.

I feel like I am reading your diary. Do you know that you have posted thrice {that's Jane Austin for three times--ain't I clever and all} already today--way to make a person addicted to you.

I love that you have a bunch of stuff to decorate with--that's actually gonna be a post topic of mine next week. Most people don't have a stash and you really need one!

I have been reading too much Kid Convo. When I read this post, I actually read, "...but now da bottle is all swippery." I did.

Suggestion. Open a paypal account for the Ashley's Closet Cruise. Maybe enough stalkers will send money and there will be an actual cruise. Or you could call it what it really is, the Ashley's Closet Map Table Fund.

I would rather be a Blog Whore than a Chore Whore any day.

Here is a drink that won't make your ass fat... plain vodka, club soda, Toriani Sugar Free Raspberry syrup, and a slice of lime.

so tired said...

I forgot who your new girl crush is. I tried to scroll back a few posts to see if I could find it. But there are way too many posts and I grew weary.

But I did see that green purse again I need to buy. Thanks for reminding me of that.

I spent my family time making the little one an oh so cute dress. I am so crafty, not really.

I actually got my mother in law to start drinking cherry vodka and red bull. Man she sucked that drink down today.

My family time was comprised of taking care of a feverish 3 1/2 year old and enteraining my 18 month old that I sprung from "school."

I tried to take pictures of said 3 1/2 year old running around in soccer shorts and dress-up shoes as a modern day "Looks like a pump, feels like a sneaker" shot...but my damn battery needed recharging. Ah, well...there's always next Friday.
