Today I Am Thankful For Underwear (and Socks and Bras)

Okay, whenever my family would go around the table and say what they were thankful for, I would always say socks or underwear.  It kept me from having to get all sappy, plus they are really great.

Reasons that undergarments are wonderful:

1. Less laundry.  You would have to wash your pants everytime you wore them if it were not for underwear.  Or at least I hope you would wash them everytime.  Washing your pants less makes them last longer, so underwear actually save you money (well unless you buy $20 underwear or something, but thats your own bad since you can buy them for about $1.25 at Wal-Mart)
2. Jeans.  Think about it: jeans would hardly exist without underwear.  No one in their right mind would ever want to wear them if underwear were not around. 
3. Aestheically pleasing.  Lots of underwear are pretty adorable, especially if you go with the cheap ones at Wal-Mart.  Cartoon charactors, seasonal designs, they are pretty awesome.
4. Boobs that don't hit your knees at 25.  I am not 25 yet, but I am pretty sure that my boobs will still be pretty much where they are now a year from now.  Because I wear a bra.  If you don't wear a bra, your poor boobs will get all stretched out and nasty before you even have kids. 
5. Not embarassing other people.  You know how it is when you have to carry on a conversation with someone not wearing a bra.  Trying to avert your eyes without them noticing and still maintaining some amount of eye contact.
6. Not having to wear a corset and pantaloons.  I am all about girls dressing like girls, and would LOVE some old fashioned clothes.  But I am sticking with my modern undergarments.  I do NOT want to wear a corset.  Well part of me does so I can look like I am super skinny, but I'm pretty lazy and like being comfortable.
7. Less stinky shoes.  When you wear shoes (of the non-sandal sort) without socks your feet sweat like crazy.  Socks absorb the sweat so you just throw the gross part in the wash and the expensive shoes remain relatively non-disgusting.

This post was really weird, but seeing as how that is almost always what I said around the table at Thanksgiving, I thought it needed to be said here.

  1. I agree 100%. I almost wrote about being thankful for socks but I couldn't think of anything other than "they can be cute and keep my feet warm" to say.

    Underwear really is amazing. Amen.

Things That Annoy Infertile Girls (or Maybe Just Me?) - Flashback Friday

This was actually one of my more popular posts when it was first published, but I still thought I would share it again.  Any additions to the post are in pink, as usual :)

Accidental Pregnancies - So I have been trying for years to get pregnant, you go slut around and accidentally get pregnant? Immediate Pregnancies - You quit taking your birth control last month and now you are pregnant? People Who Give You Retarded Advice -           - Just stop trying and you will get pregnant
           - My friend adopted a baby and got pregnant right away, you should do that
           - Get drunk, people always get pregnant when they are drunk (Yes, they do. Because they are
             intoxicated and forget to take precautions.)
Whiny Girls That Pretend They Are Infertile - Trying for 5 months is not suffering from infertility. It takes a year on average to get pregnant.  I get that it might FEEL like infertility but it just isn't.  After YEARS of trying, I can't even remember what tr…

Review - Seven Everyday Slings

I got this sling because it was free, I only had to pay shipping.  Since I bought it, I have found out that it is VERY easy to find codes for this to be free, and I am pretty sure that if you ever pay full price for one you got duped.

I was SO excited.  I wanted a baby carrier really bad.  I didn't have a baby, but I am always collecting baby things.

In case you were thinking that I only review things that I like, I HATE THIS SLING! 

I have used it with tiny babies, older babies, and toddlers. 

Pros:
- Adorable, and available in a variety of colors
- Lightweight and compact, you can easily throw it in a diaper bag or purse
- Works from birth - 35 lbs


Cons:
- Terrifying to use with small babies.  They sink down in it, and its almost impossible to keep them from having their chin tucked to their chest, which is a huge no-no in baby carrying.  Basically when I had Cooper in it as an infant I spent the entire trip to the park making sure he was still breathing, then I started sticki…

Manipulatives Monday GIVEAWAY from Mother Goose Time - closed

Giveaway closed! Thank you so much to everyone who entered, I really appreciate it!
I have excellent news!  Today is Manipulatives Monday, and Mother Goose Time is giving away a great prize!  One lucky winner will receive TWO bags of manipulatives!  Mother Goose Time will chose the prizes, but I assure you, whatever they send will be a lot of fun for your children!

Manipulatives are a big hit in our house.  Every month we get two new bags of manipulatives, and every month Little Guy asks if he can play with them before the month starts.  The answer is always no, but he tries every month anyways.  During the month we use them for the assigned activities but after we are done with the curriculum, I let him add them to his toy collection.
One thing that is in almost every box is a set of counters.  These are often in the shape of animals, which are Little Guy's favorites.  They are used for a variety of activities, and are always multiple colors, sizes, and/or shapes so they can be …
