The housecoat vs. The Mu-Mu: my candid review

I've been joking about getting a mu-mu for a long time. Then the joke turned into a serious consideration, then I decided to stop messing around and just go for it. I wanted both a housecoat and a mu-mu, although I don't really know if they are different. For my purposes we will call a housecoat one that snaps, buttons, or zips up the front. A mu-mu is more like what Hawaiian ladies wear. First, I'll review the housecoat. I'm not going to lie. Every time I wear it I feel like a piece of my childhood slips away. That said, it's awesome. It's nice and roomy; tent-like, even. It's lightweight and airy. I will say the snaps can become cumbersome. I got the thing for ease and comfort and I don't really want to spend, like 15 seconds, buttoning up. The snaps ARE a nice feature when I have rollers in my hair because I can remove the housecoat without messin' up my 'do. Now onto the mu-mu. Simply stated it is heaven. Heaven in a Hawaiian print dress. I make no apologies for this. I love everything about it and even though my husband won't admit it, I think he loves it too. He loves the deep v-neck, the shorter hemline, the baggy fit that makes you wonder what womanly curves are hiding underneath, oh but wait... did she step into the sunlight and show that this dress is actually quite threadbare? I'm certain that's what happened but it was a fleeting moment... a moment of pure bliss. The mu-mu is wonderful. It's changed my life. I might have another baby just so I can have a comfortable mumu pregnancy. In simple terms: Housecoat - 3.5 stars, Mu-Mu - 5 stars.

Last post today, I promise...

Okay, I will not post 4 times in one day ever again. Promise. However this is too good not to share, actual classified ad: "Free red cough please come pick it up asap. I'm moving and have no room." Ummmmmm.... I'm good. But thanks for not wanting to charge me for it.

Great KSL Finds...

My house is loaded with stuff I've found on KSL. If you haven't checked out the classified section on yet, what rock have you been hiding under. People ask me how I find such great stuff on a classifieds site... well, it's an obsession really. I find great stuff all the time.... great stuff I cannot use. I'll pass these along from time to time, now is one of those times. Someone should really get this blue and white chair. It's amazing.
Here is the ad: Someone else (or the same someone) should really buy these fantastic Queen Anne chairs.
Here is the ad for these: You're welcome for imparting such knowledge.

But I just really love Chick-Fil-A

Okay, folks, you who are also Facebook friends know I don't typically get into politics on that forum. I don't like the controversy and the ability people have to comment so easily. That said, I'll post here as much political stuff as I want... which still won't be that much. I found this gem on pinterest the other day and I love, love, love it.
I can't think of a better way to truly express how I feel about the Chick-Fil-A controversy. It's not that I'm blissfully ignorant: it's that I'm fully aware that being ignorant is bliss. I like when people stand up for what they believe in, but I also like it when they're consistent. In an effort to assist you all I've compiled (and by compiled I mean I've googled) lists of companies you can no longer support. If you stand with Chick-Fil-A and support their stance on traditional marriage, here are some companies you should also no longer affiliate yourselves with: Levi's, American Apparel, Nike, Microsoft, American Airlines, Apple, Google, Starbucks, Boeing, IBM, Ben & Jerry's (friggin' hippies),General Mills, Target (made both lists, somehow, so no one should shop there I guess) Where are you fools going to buy your computers???? If you plan to BOYCOTT Chick-Fil-A because of their stance on gay marriage (which, bt-dubs, they're a Christian company that's closed on Sunday, why was this so shocking? Anyone? Anyone????) here is a list of companies for you to avoid: Urban Outfitters (shocking, right?), Exxon Mobil, WalMart, A-1 Self Storage, The Salvation Army, Amway (I might use this as an excuse to avoid the MLM), Target (RIP, Taget, no one can shop there any more) Listen, my point in all this is not to convince anyone of anything other than if we REALLY got into the nitty gritty of what corporations support and what corporations DO, we couldn't shop anywhere. Just consider this the next time you take a social stance... and be consistent. YAY for chicken!!!

Alright, folks, I'm back...

I've toyed with this notion of actually updating this blog many a time. I am finally at a place where I think I'd like to do it. Here are some of the things you'll find here: - Recipes I find that are worth sharing. I will not post original recipes, I will post links to recipes. - Good stuff I find on the internet... Like actual good stuff. I browse the local classifieds and find stuff I'd like to buy but have no place for it, I'll post those items here for your enjoyment. - Weird stuff I find on the internet. This includes, but is not limited to pinterest posts, articles, ideas, etc. - Social commentary on the things that happen to me in my daily life. I hope you enjoy! Also, for some reason, ever since I switched to a Mac, my paragraphs don't show up when I publish. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks suh much.
