Happy Things

It's been awhile...

1.  I read Alice's Adventures in Wonderland for the first time recently.  My favorite part was when the Mock Turtle and the Gryphon sing about the Lobster Quadrille.
2.  My toes are painted an extremely hipster shade of pastel greenish-blue.  Thank god only I can see them.
3.  I learned how to make the most delicious oatmeal (translation: I shamelessly stole the recipe from my nanny family) and now I make vats of it and sometimes eat it three times a day.  For real.
4.  On Thursday, it's going to be 60 degrees and I'm taking the twins out in the double Bob stroller and walking to town and getting a cup of coffee.  Boom.
5.  It's my best friend's birthday this Saturday and she has no idea that I've been training her Shetland pony birthday present to stand on his head for her.  She has room for him in her apartment, right?
6.  I dread my period a lot less since I started being all earthy hippie crunchy and using reusable products (I have a diva cup).  I was so against the very idea of this thing when my college friend first tried to convince me to use it.  I called it disgusting, I swore up and down that I would never, not ever use something so freaking weird.  And then I did.  And it's amazing.  And it makes my vagina happy.
7.  (And oh yeah - I get my period again.  Another happy.)
8.  Remember when I got into Yale?
9.  I took a bath tonight.  Lucy almost jumped in.  I laughed so hard I almost peed.
10.  This boy.  Always and forever.

Oatmeal recipe? Yes please.

Yes to the Diva cup! Although, I still think it's gross, even though I use one. I don't know if it will never not be gross to me.

Yes, oatmeal recipe please! My kids LOVE oatmeal (crock pot is their favorite way to wake up)

Allison, I'm actually with you on this one. Every time I have to empty the cup, I feel like that girl in the movie "No Strings Attached" who talks about her period like "there's a crime scene in my pants." Lovely image, that.

Oatmeal recipe in an upcoming post!
