I complain about the mundane and get distracted by the ridiculous

I live in Minneapolis. I realize this makes me boring and irrelevant to most of tumblr. I stick around anyway.

I created Bringing Up Baby to satisfy my baby-makin' alter ego. If you like cute babies, poop and discussion of the state of my vahj, you'll probably enjoy reading it.

I really should meal plan and write out a grocery list since I have to go shopping tonight, but I’m awfully busy wallowing in self pity and looking for inexpensive but healthy meals sounds far too taxing right now.

“We fled to the Philippines, which was under American occupation at the time. But it wasn’t long before the Japanese took over the islands. We were living in Manila, and when the Japanese occupied the city, they began to teach us to read and write Japanese. When the Americans came to retake the city, they invaded from the north, and the Japanese blew up the bridges and barricaded themselves in the southern part of the city where we lived. Shells were falling all around us, because the Japanese had stationed a gun encampment across from our house. One morning, we decided to make a run for the hospital, so that we could put ourselves under the protection of the Red Cross. Our neighbors were running in front of us, pushing their belongings on a pushcart, when they stepped on a land mine and the whole family was killed. We kept running, but when we got to the main street, there was a checkpoint and we weren’t allowed to cross. So we hid beneath a house, and soon we were discovered by Japanese soldiers. They lined us all up against the wall to be executed. We begged and begged and begged for our lives. They finally allowed my mother and the children to step aside, but they told my father to stay. My mother dropped to her knees and asked the Japanese commander to imagine it was his family. And he finally let all of us go.”

This is amazing.

I’m on the last episode of the last season of Luther and am devastated about this. I need CONSTANT Idris Elba in my life. Why won’t the universe provide?

Normally I don’t ‘like’ instagrams from “celebrities”, but if you think I didn’t ‘like’ a picture featuring a tub full of champagne, then you don’t know me at all.

How Drop Dead Gorgeous Found Cult Success As A Flop

Underrated satire Drop Dead Gorgeous came and went in theaters 15 years ago, rejected by audiences and critics alike. Now that it’s a cult classic, the cast and crew tell BuzzFeed why the film is more popular than ever before.

We have this movie on DVD, I feel like I’ve had it forever, and it is legitimately one of the funniest movies I’ve ever seen.

This movie is fantastic. I own it on VHS and it is well-worn. I also watch it every time it’s on TV. If you haven’t seen it, figure out a way to do so STAT because you won’t regret it. My husband and I agree it’s Alison Janney’s best role ever and Ellen Barkin is a fucking delight.

Brianne tagged me to do this 6 pictures thing and I figured why the hell not. It’s important to give yourself a little love, right? At least that’s what I’m telling myself this little vanity project is about…
So here are 6 photos in which I feel good about myself. Or good enough about myself since some of my favorite photos are actually with other people but I’m not comfortable sharing those. Okay, here goes:
1. Mac and me at an apple orchard last fall. I feel like I spend an inordinate amount of time post-baby feeling fat and sloppy but I managed to pull it together that day and look like a mom who had her shit together.
2. Brand new Fitzy. Despite being sleep deprived and probably covered in leaky breastmilk, I love how at peace I look in this photo.
3. I have no idea when this picture is from but I have, like, 3 good hair days per year and this apparently was one of them.
4. This is from the first Twins game we took Mac to. Don’t I look so sporty? I love it when I look sporty. It hides the truth of how truly lazy I am.
5. Mac and me before going to the state fair 2 years ago. I LOVE the state fair and I love how excited we are in this picture and I hope my kids grow up loving the state fair as much as I do (duh, of course they will because they eat crappy food all damn day which is pretty much living their best life).
6. Mom and baby. My mother-in-law took this picture when Fitz was just a couple months old. It was on a day I was feeling particularly frumpy so to have this sweet picture texted to me later that day almost brought me to grateful tears.
Alright, evidently I have to tag 6 people, huh? Alright, here’s who I think should join in: umcanyounot, sistermarymartha, maltyk, heylaney (in an effort to lure her back to tumblr…), sabine, and juneofthemoon
No pressure to post…but you’ll make me look like a total asshat if you don’t…so you should just do it.
