Thursday Thoughts: How to be domestic

Happy Thursday Y'all - and as always, Thursday thoughts. Who am I kidding? I might as well write, for the first time in a decade: Thursday thoughts. As many of you know, I am really great at keeping house. My husband is amazed day after day at the work I do (while making it all seem so easy.) So since this is something I'm so good at, here are some of my how to be "domestic" Thursday Thoughts.
1. When living in close quartered apartments - it is necessary to sing at all times while working. You may have the pale skin due to all that bleach, but to sell the whole 'Snow White persona', you must make them believe you are working with woodland creatures. I know, I know, the song was called whistle while you work. But I think we can agree she did a lot more singing. I'm on to you Disney.

2. While keeping frozen fruit in the freezer is a must - keeping frozen fruit in a sealed bag in the freezer is an even bigger must. If you don't believe me, check these out. Mmm... Strawberries?

3. Learning to use the stove is a lot like learning Karate. Wax on, wax off. Stove on, stove OFF. The very last step being the important part - especially if you love living in said close quartered apartments. Or at all.

4. While you fold your significant other's underthings - be sure to ask him which folding method he prefers. You should commit to memory that one low guttural "ugggh" means he prefers them quartered. Not to be confused with two long-winded ughms, which loosely translates to "bring me a beer."

5. Martha Stuart makes perfectly golden brown pies. Martha Stuart also went to jail... Maybe we should all stop feeling so guilty about not living up to Martha Stuart.

  2. "Wax on, wax off. Stove on, stove OFF" AND "Martha Steward also went to jail.." It's like you're my new favorite thing, you're free too which is even better.

    1. I am so glad I can be your new favorite thing.
      If there is anything I am good at, clearly its messing things up. Which, I've subsequently found, makes everybody laugh - and like me more. (If you aren't cool, you're relatable, you see)

      Now don't you go sharing that solid blogging tip with anyone, or you and I will never keep our head above the other "up-and-coming" cool blogs. We'll just keep them thinking its cool, to seem: cool.

      P.s. You totally stressed me out writing this thing thismorning. Like, man, I made Shaylynn laugh yesterday. If she comes back for more today, and I blow it, she'll never read me again!!
      (so apparently, you're the only audience that matters to me anymore.) Thank you for the new-found inseccurities.

    1. Bwaahhahah my husband has the lowest voice ever. Seriously, think low bass noises.
      I also suspect he's got minor asburgers, and he finds a grunt to be an 'appropriate social interaction.'
      I cannot tell you how many times I've made fun of his communication.
      His family even giggles.

      The fact that this is true of other couples makes me warm and fuzzy inside.

  4. Bless this blog Lord. Touch it and the person behind it! Give this blogger peace and hope they may need to get thru life. In Jesus name, Amen.

    HAPPY NATIONAL PRAYER DAY.

    1. Who am I kidding, OH how I adore martha.
      I felt so rebellious trashing her in such a way.

      Me and Martha join together every month for a little lesson in "Living" and gosh darn if I don't try and emmulate her calendar day by day. Now I just need a farmhouse in Bedford...

  6. Haha, I'm notorious for leaving the stove on. Oops. Clever post, I really enjoyed it. :)

    1. Oh gosh, the stove thing is really the worst. I almost went to bed with it on last night.
      My husband usually follows me around while i'm in the kitchen, guarenteeing that I am good to go.
      And thank you, I found that my failures are very, very stupid - but equally funny.

  7. Hahaha I think I just found my new favorite blog! I relate a bit too much to the freezer thing, I don't have to feel bad, do I? :p

    1. Absolutely NOT! Gosh the freezer thing is too much for me. If its in a bag, it gets freezer burn, if its on its own, it turns to a raisin. Where is the answer here!?

    1. Haha, thanks Erin. I mean I love Martha. She has revolutionized being a housewife.
      But some girls take it too far to the point of worship.

      "But, but, but, Martha says I have to prune all my plants on the second saturday of every month!!"

  10. Haha, I've totally committed the frozen fruit crime!!! :)

    1. I am so glad this is not an only me, situation.
      I opened my freezer and was absolutely shocked to learn that this was even possible! I don't ever remember this happening to my mother. EVER.

      Oh boy, I have so much to learn.

  11. haha, awesome post :) I'm realizing how "undomestic" I am now! I would sing more if my voice didn't sound like a dying animal. I'm also impressed that you're thoughtful enough to ask your husband how he wants his clothes folded! I just shove everything in his drawer! haha ... maybe that's why I'm such a bad wife *sigh*
    Thanks for sharing!!

    1. Yeah, I thought I was super domestic before I got married. Then It hit me - I just had a really low standard. Now that my standard is realistic, I just suck!

  13. You should definitely be a teacher on being domestic, because that would definitely be a class worth signing up for! :) Anyway, I LOVED reading this, even though I'm single and still living at home. Too funny and I'm so glad I got a chance to read it!

    1. Well thank you, I appreciate you stopping by.
      If there was such a thing as a sarcastic teacher, I'd try out for it. Heck, I think i'd probably do a pretty bomb job.

    1. bahaha oh thank you.
      I try so hard to be modest, but lets face it, I crack myself up too.
      Its good to know that my humor isn't totally lame, or wasted in my own head.

      I really enjoyed your blog. You had some really cute outfits of the day. Especially loved your belted skirt :) Well thanks for stopping by. I really appreciate you taking time to read my blog.

    1. You're too smart a cookie for us regulars, Bekah.
      I only thought of this for the first time today.
      At least it will allow me to cut myself a break, when I burn a soufle or pair mismatched table settings. At least I haven't been to jail...

  16. I brought in some woodland creatures the other day just to make numero uno that much more realistic. What can I say. I'm just an overachiever like that.

    And I love your blog so far. Definitely following this little diddy during the challenge!

    1. Bahaha, The woodland creatures up here aren't behaving well.
      For some reason, they'd rather stay outside than help me clean.
      The vision of my dirty shower doesn't sway them...

      Honored to have you following along.
