I close the front door, buckle Ayden in his seat, and go around to the drivers side.
WHAT. THE. HELL.
Oh God. The door is locked.
The back door?
Oh no oh no oh no oh no.
Run around to the passenger back door. Ayden is smiling. He's happy. He's laughing. Does he not sense my panic???
*knocking on the window* Ayden, honey, can you try to unlock the door for mommy? Okay, seriously dude, stop laughing and unlock the door for mommy.
I can't believe this happened. What the hell?????
Luckily a nice lady was getting her kids into her car (conveniently next to mine) and let me use her cell phone.
Daddy to the rescue!!!
I'm so glad it was 45 degrees out and windy and I was in a tank top and capris.
It took Jeremy 30 minutes to get there, but the relief of seeing him drive up . . . .man.
Note to self - NEVER put your keys down when you have a sheisty toddler.

That's right - churros. A delightful Latin treat. Sometimes referred to as a "Mexican donut".
Why churros, you ask? Because they're delicious! Have you had one??? No? GO GET ONE!
Anyway, the whole point of this post is not that churros are delicious (they are), but something rather amazing to me. See, my husband Jeremy is half Mexican. His mom is full-on-hispanic. And dude, he had never had a churro until yesterday!!!!!!
He's freaking Mexican and had never had a churro!!! Seriously.
And I totally speak more Spanish than him too.

Earrings made from a recycled skateboard deck. By MuKee.
Typewriter key necklace from PreciousPastimes.
So, Ayden often likes to give himself "tattoos" by drawing on his arms with his markers. Well, Jeremy and I both have a tattoo on our upper back. Apparently, Ayden decided he needed one there as well.
Well played, Ayden. Well played.

His eyebrows y'all.
I snicker at him.
Me: Nothing. You're just trimming your eyebrows. You're a guy.
Jeremy: So? I have some old man hairs.
Me: Old man hairs?
Jeremy: You know, longer hairs? Old man hairs? If I had old man hairs in my nose I'd trim them too.
Me: That's just gross.
Jeremy: If I had long nose hair, what would you tell me?
Me: To trim it.
Jeremy: See? I thought that would be "gross".
Me: My point exactly.
Jeremy: *shakes his head* I don't understand you. *makes a slurping noise and wipes his mouth*
Me: Did you just drool? Are you drooling?
Jeremy: Yeah. (sarcastically) My own hair makes me drool. *mummbles something I can't quite make out*
Me: Did you just say you're being spontaneous?
Jeremy: Yes. Spontaneous. My hair makes me drool and act spontaneously.
Me: Okay. Now that's just weird. And if it were true I'd be all 'dude, you're weird'. And you'd say 'don't judge me man.' And I'd be all 'whatever! I'll judge you if I want!' and then I'd throw a donut at your head. Well, a bear claw, 'cause those are stickier.
Jeremy: *walking away* I don't get you.
Yes, I'm truly that awesome.

Glad you asked. Let me share things with you. I've been working out and eating healthy since mid-December. Finally inspired to get my ass in gear and lose weight.
Here - let me start at the begining. I gained over 40 pounds during my pregnancy with my son. 40. Freaking. Pounds. No joke. I gave birth weighing around 180. Ugh. So I was all 'yay! Ayden's born! Now I can lose weight!'
Yeah. Totally didn't happen. Well, I got down to about 160 and kinda gave up. And then last year I had a hysterectomy and was out of commision for another 2 months. My weight went back to 170. But even though I felt like crap, I still wasn't inspired.
What happened? Our good friend (who's a photographer), did a family photoshoot. And after that, I did some "naughty" pics for Jeremy. It was so liberating! It was fun! And I wanted to do more.
But as a thinner version of me.
Fast forward to today - I now weigh 152 pounds, and have 12 to go. I feel great! I look great! I have tons more energy and I'm much happier.
ANNNNNNND I get to go shopping!!!!!!!! That's right. None of my clothes fit! Woot!
Case in point - I thought I would never fit into these pants again. Like, ever. And now? They're too big!!! They fall off me! I fit into 2 pairs of pre-pregnancy pants!!!!!!
That's why I'm awesome.

Gotta love conjoined twins . . . . .

The chain gang necklace has got to be one of my favorites! It's simple and sexy and just a litle bit dangerous!And this coiled wire bangle is so unique and amazing! I haven't seen anything like it!!

A zombie unicorn! With a disemboweled bear on it's horn! Why? Why the hell not!
The little bear comes off. Because that's way more awesome than it not coming off.
This is Ivan the rat. He's obsessed with everything feline. He left yesterday to his new home!!
