As you probably know, I don’t have children of my own (yet, and the jury is still out on that one.) But, that doens’t mean that I don’t love hearing about motherhood! I actually follow quite a few “mommy” bloggers, and enjoy hearing the changes that come with motherhood. Brittany of Laugh Out Loud Mommy is here today to share how her style has changed since becoming a Mama.
No, really do I look like somebody’s mama? My husband sometimes says this to me, “look at you, looking like somebody’s mama,” and I instantly get offended. I know that it wasn’t meant to be an insult, but was actually meant to be endearing. However, I don’t want to look like anyone’s mom. Don’t get me wrong I love my kids, but when I’m out I want descriptions such as, “hot”, “stunning”, “stylish”, I don’t want to scream “mom”.
While I’m off at Universal Studios today, Jamie from SnapGinger is here to share with you one of my favorite type of posts to read… dog posts! Jamie thought it would be fun to do a spin-off of Us Weekly Magazine’s “Stars — They’re Just Like Us” column, and what better way to do that than with her cute dog, Roxy! Without further ado, here’s Jamie and Roxy.
Hi hellorigby readers! I’m Jamie from SnapGinger, a Lifestyle Blog. Where did that curious name come from? Well, SnapGinger is just one of my many nicknames, in reverse (GingerSnap was taken), so I ran with it! I’m a born and raised Jersey girl, and my little lifestyle blog is my place to inspire others to live life to the fullest, and enjoy every sweet and snappy moment of it. (Get it?!) Whether I’m sharing recipes, pics of my dog Roxy, beauty reviews, classic fashion or housewifey tips, SG is your source for ideas and thoughtful touches for beautiful living…Snap to it.
Jenn was gracious enough to let me guest post for her while she was away, so, without further ado, here is my post!
Dogs — they’re just like us!
Mom woke me up this morning and threw me in the bathtub. What on dog’s earth is going on?! Doesn’t she know I love to smell ever so slightly of Fritos and whatever I most recently rolled in? Ugh, moms are the worst.
Something I absolutely do not miss is bad dates. I’m sure we all have had them, right? I thought I’d share one of my most awkward dates, and a way to stop them forever, with a new app that’s launching today in Seattle called Hinge.
I confess… that I’ve really missed participating in humpday confessions. Truth be told I missed out last week because I feel asleep on the couch. At 9pm. I’m a party animal.
I confess that I really didn’t have a good photo for this post… So here, have a photo of my silly cat-dog
I also confess that I’ve been wearing myself thin in blogland and haven’t been able to make it around to everyone as much lately. With no catch up time the past few weekends (when I normally read everyone’s blog posts) and a full schedule, I’m feeling behind. Basically this month has been crazy and I won’t lie, I’m starting to look forward to the calm that is probably coming in fall. At least I hope.
I confess I may have left the dog at home today instead of taking him to doggie daycare because I was running late. Have I mentioned that my biggest flaw is my inability to be on time? Seriously, I’m pretty bad, but I really do try, and I have no intention of running late, it just happens. #SorryButIAmSorry
I confess I finally tried Trader Joes’ Cookie Butter. We picked up the Speculoos Ice Cream on our TJ’s run tonight. It tasted like graham crackers and pretzels had a baby, and named it cookie butter. Tasty, but not quite what I expected. P.S. If you like dark chocolate and almonds, make sure you pick up their Dark Chocolate Almonds with Sea Salt and Turbinando Sugar. You’re welcome in advance.
Okay, last confession. I finally downloaded the Editorial Calendar Plugin for WordPress and actually started using it today. What is wrong with me that it took this long?! Seriously, it is awesome. I feel so much better planning out the next 3 or so weeks in advance. Also, I’m going to be out-of-town in September and am looking for guest posters. Are you interested? Or know someone who is? Email me. Or comment and tell me. Pick your poison.
Well, my confessional is closed for the day, I think I’ve done enough for this week. What do you have to confess this week?
Linking up with Kathy, duh.
