Holy random post batman!

*Nurse's week is this week. If you know a nurse or see a nurse, tell them how much they rawk. Because if you tell them they suck, they just might bend you over, snap their glove and give you an enema. Nurses hold the power.

* I have the Miley Cyrus song stuck in my head. It won't go away and I desperately wish I could tell you how much I despise this song but I'd be lying. After all, I am a horrible liar. See for yourself... the bass line is addicting. I feel like I'm in junior high all over again. This is a song I would have totally sang into a hairbrush in my room jumping all over to the beat. Ok, you caught me, I did it today...

I dare you not to bounce your head or tap your toes. I dare you...



*What's a holla back girl anyways?


Inquiring girl with crooked eyebrows wanna know. Am I missing out on something?

* This goes into the "just sayin''" file. When people read blogs and decide to email a blogger negative and inappropriate statements about something that they worked hard for to pacify their grief, have a heart. Sending emails to a gentle, caring soul such as this blogger, with links to paranoid, conspiracy-like theories toward the MOD is rude and hurtful. Just sayin', because Crooked Eyebrow said so.
(I'm doing the WWE Stone Cold Steve Austin meets the rock look right now and that's the bottom line...)


*Mother's Day. What to do, what to do? Although it's all about celebrating the joys of motherhood and honoring your mother, I think deep down, every mom wants something. It's what to get them that's the problem. Me? I say I want nothing, but I wouldn't be upset if a blackberry curve appeared in a new coach purse. I kid, I kid. Happy Early Mother's Day to all the mommies.

* My feet are swollen in case you wanted to know. I could not wear tennis shoes today.

*In other news, twice today I got asked if I was pregnant. Once for eating cake, then pickles. Second by complaining of being tired and swollen. Yikes, that was a dagger in the heart. Folks if there was one thing that I wish for more than anything, that would be it. Having people ask me, just reminds me of something I'm constantly trying to hold back. Tough day for holding back.

*Beth is having a contest. It's American Idol related and you have the chance to win a blog redesign. She's got tricks up her sleeve y'all. Go sign up for the contest, like now.

*What gives you a confidence booster on days or weeks when you need one the most? If you are feeling the Blahs and feel frumpy, unattractive, what do you do to pep yourself up? When do you feel you look the best?

I realize that's a loaded question, but I wanna know. I'll share mine. I feel so much better after I shave my legs. You'd think I'd do it more often (Mr. CE agrees). I love it when I have a tan and I feel so healthy and thinner. ( Why is that?) I feel like I could walk on air after a pedicure and a new haircut and color makes me feel down right sassy.

So share yours.

My skin feels frumpy lately, I'm off to do a mini facial...

But do share. Crooked Eyebrow needs some new tricks.

Oh, and thank you.

Secretly, when Marissa and her friends dance around to Hannah/Miley I stand off to the corner...and tap my foot....and want to scream out like a 10 year old.

I love these posts. I'm stuck in the biggest slump my life has inow so I have zilch in the pep department, but might have to check back for ideas! I'm giving you a virtual hug for being a rawkin nurse. My Grandma was an RN (the nasty enema wielding kind!) so I always had a little spite, but after X was in NICU my view of the profession changed... anyway, my thanks for kicking a...

Happy Nurses Week! I do so love the nurses on my hospitals L&D floor. I'm sure you get some crappy patients who give you grief, but I hope they somehow balance out with the good ones, because you guys do a heck of a great job.

When I'm feeling frumpy and I don't have to go anywhere, I leave my pajama pants and tshirt on half the day and just go with it. When I actually have to leave the house, on the other hand, doing my hair and makeup usually helps me feel better. A facial sounds fantastic. Never have I had that experience...

Lynette said...

Happy Nurses Week to you! I don't know how you do what you do, but God Bless you for doing it!

And there's noting like a shower and and fresh makeup and hair to be my pick me up. And clothes/shoe shopping doesn't hurt either.

HAPPY NURSES WEEK.

I loves me a good pedicure. I also like catching a movie ALONE...no one share the popcorn with, no one asking to use the potty, no one seeing the many bags of candy I may be inhaling...

yeah. sounds great.

Stacie said...

PS. I love the hannah montana/mylie cyrus song, but feel so funny jamming it in my minivan when my daughter isn't in there with me.

Alysia said...

Yeah, I wouldn't mind if an iPhone showed up in that pink Madeline Coach tote either! Gosh that bag is great.

New clothes and a pedicure make me feel my best. Haven't had either in quite some time. Hmmmmm, no wonder I feel so icky?

girlymama said...

LOVE the song, but have NO IDEA what a "Hollaback girl" is. And probably don't want to know...

My quickity-frump-fix is to take a shower, where I shave and do a good conditioning, then do all those little things that moms never have time to do - slather on yummy lotion, blow-out my hair, actually putting on makeup instead of just painting over the dark circles under my eyes... I feel so much more together!
And you are totally right - being tan makes me feel soooo thin and pretty. Something about the vast pasty-whiteness makes me feel like a beached whale....

Since I have an 11yo daughter, we've always got Miley (and Taylor Swift) playing somewhere in this house. Sorry, no help in the pep dept. I could use some tips. I'm going to Olive Garden tonight, that should pick me up:)

Mimi's Toes said...

LOVE the pink Coach! I could so use a new one! This is the longest I have ever carried a purse but still love my Coach I got as a gift from daughter dear. I could use a new digital camera too for MD. I will be happy with a card....or hand full of dandelions.
Oh....Happy Nurses Week!!!!

SJ said...

Happy Nurses Week!!

You are the 3rd person this week that has admitted that they like that Miley Cyrus song - my husband being one of them....

Shopping always puts me in a good mood! But because I'm generally broke I can't do that without getting depressed about it. Eh, you take what you can get, right?

Peanut Butter and Jelly Boats said...

Chocolate- anything chocolate. and these fun little ditties yo bop around the house to are helpful.

iheartchocolate said...

I don't have tricks. I just don't think there are any that are gonna help me. But if you find any good ones, let me know.

Daily Mish Mash said...

Oh yeah, that Miley song would have so been on my mix tape (remember those)of songs recorded right off the radio! I didn't want to like it but I just can't seem to help myself. D

I'm going to have to agree with you about the haircut/color (which I desperately need) and also say that some new lip gloss also goes a long way.

I spent four months (yes, four!!) on bedrest in the hospital during the process of having my daughter. I would not have survived without my amazing nurses. They helped in every possible way, and I'm convinced my daughter wouldn't be here without their support, love and humor.
