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.

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.

Summer desserts are by the prettiest.

Like, it’s pretty much the most unfair thing in the world that these aren’t all laid out on a buffet before me. All I want is all of this. Is that so much to ask for?

this is so interesting

Minnesota is pretty great, you guys. We may have low self esteem, but apparently we’re pretty decent people.

Everyday I’m hustlin’

I’ve been going through several rounds of “interviews” for a new job and I need to finish up my submission so that I have something to send before the weekend. It’s a lot of research and writing and nitty gritty details and I’m so, so tired that I would give virtually anything to be passed out in my bed right now.

Like, passed out, with a cell phone game still halfheartedly playing in my limp hands.

#DreamLife

For real, though, I know all parents are tired, all people are tired, No 1 Currrr, blah blah blah, but I am rull fucking tired y’all and Fitz hasn’t been letting me sleep and I want to cry just talking about how tired I am and I’m not even sad about it it’s just that I can’t regulate my emotions anymore.

What were we talking about?

I have a mystery bruise on my right boob and it’s made me acutely aware of how fucking trashy I’d look with a boob tattoo.
