A very happy Friday comin’ atcha from Salt Lake City! I’ve had a hotel bed to myself the last two nights as I’ve been attending the blog conference, Altitude Summit. A little recap will post next week but for now, I’ll just say, best trip ever. (And not just because I ate a cookie in bed last night. But that was kind of magical.) Here are a few things I Googled before leaving town.
Nude undershirts for men
Jim has a tuxedo that he wears whenever he gets the chance (not often). I know it’s not socially appropriate to deliberately disregard a dress code, but he does, and I find him charming. When he was getting dressed for his company holiday party I was laughing that I could see the entire outline of his undershirt when he put on his tuxedo shirt. Perhaps he needs a thicker shirt but I wondered why nude colored undershirts for men aren’t a thing when nude colored bras are a wardrobe staple for women. I mean, don’t get me wrong. I appreciate what Tom Cruise did for the white undershirt. I love the white undershirt. I just wonder if Sergei Polunin (AKA The Hozier ballet guy) should continue the campaign for nude undergardments. Ha.
Pen that writes in the shower
Because that is where my best ideas are born and subsequently washed away thanks to my pathetic short-term memory. After several failed attempts with whiteboard markers and grease pencils, a quick Google search revealed Aqua notes! Also bookmarking this for a fun stocking stuffer next year.
Adele Hello parody
My friend asked me the other night if I had yet seen the Hella Cravings parody of Adele’s song, Hello. I hadn’t, so we looked it up right away and died laughing. With lines like, Hella cravings for some fries. I did one push-up and I cried, I don’t know how anyone can keep a straight face while watching it. And the girl singing can totally belt it!
How to keep a toddler in their crib
Ellie climbed out of her crib last weekend (!) which completely blindsided us because Harper never did. (I guess there’s no way to really realize how easy the first one was until the second one comes along.) The next day, we converted her crib to a toddler bed and now nobody in our house is sleeping. I remember reading something about how Nadya Suleman (Octomom) kept her eight babies in their cribs with some kind of special tent contraption. Turns out, that isn’t really a thing, at least not that I could find. (Sad trombone)
Things I’ve Googled is an ongoing series and comes from one of the standard questions Jim and I ask each other when we get home. Often, it’s a good indicator of where our minds have wandered off to in the middle of the day and the topics usually make us laugh. So consider this part educational. Part oversharing. Part nonsense. Completely random.
