Thursday Thoughts

Britt, here. I don't know about you, but I've had one of those weeks thats been chalk-full of new life lessons. I could ramble on and on about how life is a giant classroom, with bullies, and teachers and grades that don't matter... or I could just tell you all the silly things I've learned this week. Lets get started, shall we?
1. Unless you care to turn your garage into a giant free-for-all rummage sale, close the garage door when you leave the house. Yes, everytime. 
2. Real estate and plants have more in common than you'd think. Location, location, location. When the tropical plant you've been trying to keep alive for weeks reads "keep out of drafty areas" on the tag... yes, that includes windows.
3. While listing off all of the hundreds of things you got done while husband was at work, note that getting changed out of your sweatpants doesn't count.
4. Chocolate milk tastes sooo much better when the milk isn't sour.
5. "Pinterest lies!!" I screamed today as my pot boiled over. Wooden spoon and all. What, I guess all that talk about a Nutella mud mask was made up too!?
6. When jumping a curb in front of a crowd, and then parallel parking like a twelve-year-old, expect people to laugh and think you're drunk. 

What have you learned lately?

  7. Hmmm, what have I learned...

    That the only time a cat will actively WANT to sit on your lap is when you're busy working on a computer. Guaranteed.

  9. I'm stuck on number 5... it's the best tip I've gotten from pinterest! (I am assuming you're referring to placing a wooden spoon accross your pot of boiling pasta/potatoes to keep it from boiling over?) It has worked for me every single time!

    Yuck on sour chocolate milk. LOL

    1. YESSSS! that's exactly what I'm talking about.
      I placed it over, came back thirty seconds later to the biggest mess ever. Maybe I'm unlucky? or my pots are just shapped wrong?

      and yes, I got about half way through the milk.
      yummmm.
