Did I mention that we got Uncrustables in Canada recently? My freezer is full of them now because both kids love them even though one is an adult.

She tends to eat like a toddler/frat boy combination though so it isn’t surprising.

I tried some Bermuda shorts from Zara this week. I was hopeful that they would work, and while they look fine and would be decent shorts to have, I just don’t think I will wear them.

It was kind of disappointing because there is nothing wrong with them, I just feel not like myself wearing them, so I know that they won’t get worn.

Back to the potential shorts drawing board, I guess.

Also, just in case you missed it, I posted an edgy minimalist capsule yesterday.

  1. I absolutely love the Barbies of real women, especially when you get to see pictures of the actual women with the dolls of themselves. I used to have the Debbie Harry one, but it got stolen years ago. I’ll buy her again one day. I also want Sally Ride and Stevie Nicks. The video of Stevie showing off her doll at a concert made me tear up. The pic of Helen Mirren with her doll made me tear up a little as well.

    • Me too! They are incredible and such great collector pieces if you can find them. I’d like a few as well.
