color code confusion

I absolutely hate for my clothes to match. I don't know why. I've been purposely mismatching my clothes since I was old enough to dress myself; but today I really needed something to go over this red-orange-melon (?) dress to cover my boobage and this jacket thing was all I could dig up.
I have other stuff it's just...
I haven't folded laundry or hung up clothes in weeks.

I've come down with a serious case of the "Eff Its" when it comes to cleaning my bedroom.
We only sleep in there! Who cares if it's clean? No one is going to see it. Eff it! I'll save my time and energy and just eff it.

And now I can't find anything.

It wasn't really my intentions to match me a Cedar's outfits. I was laying out her church clothes last night and felt she would need something to cover her arms now that it's getting cooler and the only thing she had that would look good with that dress was this red-orange-melon (?) shrug-cardi thing.


Oh yeah, so two um... interesting things happened to me yesterday. If you follow me on Facebook then you've probably already heard about the first one but here's the full convo.

In Walmart whilst browsing the tiny Mexican food section a toothless middle-aged man in asked me:

MAN: Have you ever heard of pigs brains in a can?

*Let me interrupt this story real quick to ask: Who the @#$% starts a conversation like that?

ME: Mmm... no. Do they sell them here?

MAN: I don't know. I'm looking for them. I can't find them anywhere.

ME: I don't think they'd sell that here. Pigs brains in a can? probably not.

MAN: Yeah, no one around here sells them.

ME: And what do you do with them?

MAN: You scramble them in eggs. It's an old recipe.

ME: (Begins to walk away) Yeah, you're not going to find those those here...

MAN: There's a recipe on the back of the can!

ME: (Speeding away) Alright.

Second incident. Er, accident rather.
I found a small leftover poo pebble on the living room floor from a crapsident my daughter had a couple hours earlier. I picked it up (yes with my bare hands) and the dirty diaper my husband left in the middle of the floor and headed for the trash can. I miss-stepped over the makeshift barrier that keeps Cedar out of the kitchen and fell like an old rotten tree in the woods. It happened so fast, there was no stumbling and I didn't even get to put my arms out to catch myself.

BAM! I hit my forehead on the vacuum, landed with most of my weight on my upper arm, and scraped the skin off the top of my foot which is still sore and swollen.
And to add insult to injury...

I squished the poo ball in my hand when I fell.

My husband came back indoors in time to help me get up. Poo still in hand.
He didn't believe I was injured because I was laughing at myself so hard.
I'm just grateful that I'm still young enough to be able to take a fall like that without breaking a hip.
All this blubber helped me bounced like a rubber ball.
I knew it would come in handy some day.

So, did anything interesting happen to you this weekend?


  1. Hollie...that poo incident....priceless! The joys of motherhood....bwahaha!
    And can I just say how cute the photos are of you and Cedar?!?! Seriously....just too cute:) And I love that red-orange-melon colour on you both!

  2. LMFAO...seriously! Only a Mom would pick up her kid's poo with her hands. The whole falling incident sounds so Mr. Bean.

    Pig brains in a can? Sounds like a horror movie to me.

    I'm no colour expert...but what about coral?

    The pic of you two is priceless. Even if she is a little pooper.


  3. Oh dear, accidents like that, you've just got to laugh!
    I'd go with coral, too. You both look gorgeous in your matching outfits. xxx

  4. nope nothing as exciting as The Poo Incident. Melon/coral on that color, is my guess. It probably has some weird name like desert sunset.

  5. Holy poo ball incident! That sounds like it was a pretty bad fall. Hope you're ok.

    You brought back a memory of being offered some animal's brains to put on crackers once, at a neighbour's family gathering Um, no thanks. I'll pass and just put some cheese on this sucker. Come to think of it, I think they called it "head cheese" which makes sense, I guess.

  6. Love all the bright colors! The little one is adorable. <3 Oh and as far as accidents go, that's a pretty gnarly one. Haha. Oh dear!

  7. The color is gorgeous, and you look so happy and put together I'd never imagine the brain and poo incidents. ;) I've heard of uh, brain food, especially in northern Celtic culture, but not canned brain. I sold at our nearby flea market for the first time (worth a try!) and had lots of inappropriate comments from toothless old men myself. Lovely! The boyfriend laughed it all off and joked about it. I also feel you on the clothes I FINALLY (finally) folded and put my clean clothes away this morning after probably a week or two of laziness.
