Wait. This is real and he's the real mayor? Not only is it horrible sportsmanship, but it's highly inappropriate.
Finesse totally sounds like 90s Bobby Brown, performed on In Living Color.
This Is Us SPOILERS
(kind of? maybe? the episode was already on and we already knew most of this anyway...)
Why is everyone so shocked? We knew the house burned down, we've seen it several times. And the last shot of last week's episode was of the smoke alarm that they forgot to buy batteries for. Aaaand we knew Jack dies when the kids are in high school. They're seniors...there's not much time to go. We knew it was coming soon.
And by the way, let's not blame the crock pot. They used that crock pot happily for 18 years AFTER it was unearthed from that garage. The crock pot did its part.
It is very cool how they tweaked the timing to have the episode after they watched the Super Bowl air after the Super Bowl. And super smart that they warned everyone to extend the DVR recording time.
(p.s. I'm not heartless, it was sad, and I hate fire, so next week should be truly terrifying.)
Yesterday my newly-turned-5-yo niece wore her 2yo sister's denim jacket because she thought it looked cute "shorter, with my sleeves showing underneath". She's totally right.
Know what I wore when I was 5? Pattern turtlenecks and jumpers (the corduroy dress kind, not the Bridget Jones sweater kind).
Pinterest just showed me "17 Makeup tricks an older woman should know" 😳
I just want to know the name...

I like to clean out. I love to organize. I get excited when a consignment-style shop gives me $6 for my old clothes.
But. Sometimes saying you're organized is easier than actually being-- or even harder: staying-- organized.
We look to a blog post, a magazine article, a Pinterest board, a Target end cap, for ideas. But sometimes fancy labels and trendy bins are failed organization attempts in disguise. A cute container does not an organized closet make. (In addition to organizing, I also like strange language patterns [nerd].) But really, it's true. This is just one of the topics that Laurie Palau covers in her new book Hot Mess: A Practical Guide to Getting Organized.
(I met Laurie a couple years ago through a mutual friend. I actually attended one of her Clutter Clinics-- read more about my experience here.)
My bills? Don't spark joy. My kids' homework? No joy. Q-tips? No.The boys' endless sporting equipment? While I love watching them play, the equipment itself does not spark joy. But all of these things are necessary. And the entryway, kitchen island, bathroom counter, and garage floor, are not the places these things should live (respectively. I guess. Although when something lacks a *home* who knows where it'll actually end up.)
Hot Mess (btw, cute title, right?!) approaches purging and organizing in a realistic, practical, and do-able way. Instead of trying to explain all the types of clutter, all the aspects of organizing, and all the pitfalls to avoid, I'm going to recommend that you read Hot Mess. If you're local to me, you're welcome to borrow mine, but I'd suggest getting your own (it's under $15 and on Prime and under $3 for digital download!). It's the kind of book you're going to want to refer back to. In the meantime, find a home for it on a neatly-organized book shelf ;)
