Whoever's kids actually wear the big unicorn head from Target for Halloween, just know that everyone else's kids have had it on their heads. 🦄
Long, long ago (aka 2011) I read Meredith Schorr's Just Friends with Benefits and commented how the pop culture references were so funny and relateable. Six years later, I laughed out loud when I read one specific line of dialogue between characters in her latest title The Boyfriend Swap, as it was exactly what I have said to my husband about the same song. All of this super vague and awkwardly-written commentary (I'm trying not to spoil the joke or the story!) is just to say that Schorr and her characters get me. Or I get them. Either way, it's a good match.
The Boyfriend Swap-- posed as The Holiday meets The Proposal --features Robyn and Sidney, who connect through a mutual friend to devise a plan to survive the holidays with their respective families...and each other's boyfriend. As you can imagine, some madness and mayhem ensue as the girls try to decide if the boyfriend swap was the perfect plan or a horrible idea.
The Boyfriend Swap is the latest in what's becoming quite a tall pile of Meredith Schorr books on my shelf. They never fail to entertain me with stories that are familiar enough to settle in with, but original enough to keep me guessing. The holiday theme makes this the perfect book to read over Chrismukkah break!
Pre-order the paperback or the Kindle version now or grab a copy in November, but don't miss this one!
Good one for the keepers-- and the non-keepers-- to read.
August humidity at the end of September? No thanks.
(And I reeeeally hesitate to complain about warm weather, but while I'm at it, 60s and 70s would be better than 80s.)
Ugh, I heard about this on the news earlier, but a friend posted with good advice: Use any gift cards you have, and make any returns that you need to, asap to avoid getting stuck with them.
Here ya go!
(Thank God none of this shizz will be on my kids' lists! haha)
Guess how much I paid for these 3 pairs of shoes. Go ahead, guess.
It's not glamorous but it's beautiful.
TEACHERS- I know you work hard-- most of us do-- but please pay attention to spelling in your assignments/instructions. I've seen "it's" used wrong TWICE so far this school year. If my child's spelling and grammar counts (which it should), yours does too. (And to be clear, they weren't tpyos <*that* is a typo.)
It's means it is.
Its implies possession.
They are two different words with two different meanings. They change the meaning of the sentence in which you use them.
**This TOTALLY applies to everyone else also. It just seems most hypocritical when coming from those who teach my children :/ **
I've been asking for a sideeye or eww emoji. Instead we get RAD with flying like- fists? You're useless, facebook.
(Type it, you'll see.)
