I’m searching through Netflix and a trailer appears at the top of the page and sucks me right in. I’m like, “Is this a baking show? Is it a weird comedy? I have to know.” Needless to say it sucked me in to the complete weirdness that is The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell.

After the ridiculously hot summer temperatures from the first half of the week, it totally plummeted today. All the windows are wide and we are dressed in layers. I kind of wish we had a fire-place because this is totally the weather for it. I’m looking forward to having this simmering on the stove all day.

As you can see from my finds this weeks that I am loving that we are back in to coat season. There are so many good ones rights now.

Every time I go on to the Target website I get even more upset that they closed down in Canada. There is so much great stuff……there always has been, but it seems like they are getting better and better styles and brands. When I was scrolling through the pages I saw that they have some completely awesome band tees for kids, and if I had access I would by them all.

It’s Thanksgiving weekend here and I can’t believe we have already reached that part of the holiday season. I think dinner is going to be short ribs thanks to a very generous fellow instagrammer. She emailed me some recipes that look amazing and not super time intensive which is one of the main things that I hate about holiday cooking.

I also think that I am going to work on the Halloween costumes over the next few days just in case I run into issues and need to make some changes. Does anyone know where to find a pattern online for the medieval/elf style shoes that go up at the toe? Bonus points if it is in an easy to sew pattern 😉

Ugh it’s late and I am on hold with my web host because I am having issues uploading images. Nothing reinforces how tech savvy you aren’t like parts of your website not working. Every single article about my issue was like, “5 easy steps to……” and then it immediately changes into a foreign language. And obviously since this is posted with an image I got the issue fixed, but serves me right to still be trying to get this done after 10 pm 🙁

It was a pretty draining week, especially yesterday. What a complete shit show. The first half and the second half of the hearing were so different in every respect, and I couldn’t look away from either for completely different reasons. The first part I was trying to mentally give her my support through the screen the second half just brings me rage thinking about it. Continue Reading

Both kids now are down with the plague. It’s actually just a cold but by the way they are acting and how fast they spread it you would think it’s the plague. Ever since Roo was a baby, every single time she gets sick she always throws up on day 1. Regardless if it’s even just a head cold….always. I have to wait until day two to determine whether she has a cold or stomach flu every time. It’s so weird.

Have you been following the #WhyIDidntReport hashtag on Twitter. It is both heartbreaking and infuriating. As I was reading through them over the course of about 20 minutes I went back to the top of the page and saw there were 1,791 new results. That is just a drop in the bucket. We need to do better. Much better. I can’t even believe the fuckery of this past week. I thought we had turned a corner with #metoo but apparently we just circled back around. It is a terrifying thing being a woman.

In my last post I talked about how more than half my DNA is listed as being from the UK according to the Ancestry test that I did. Coincidentally that night I checked the Ancestry site and saw that I finally got the update (they had released it slowly to customers but it’s now available to all). Anyway I went from mostly British, to now mostly Irish/Scottish, with England coming in second. So I guess you can say my ancestors hung out in the British Isles for a long time. I have a 16% part Eastern Europe and Russia that comes from my dad’s unknown paternal father’s side (dad is almost 50% Eastern European). It’s really cool to see how they are able to narrow down the areas as more and more people test.

And speaking of my last post, it did a weird thing when I hit the post button. It froze mid-load and ended up not sending out an email to subscribers to notify them of the new post. If you missed it, here it is.
