I’m writing this to tell you we might not be seeing that much of each other for the next couple of weeks. I know.  Take a moment if you need to. You okay? Here’s the situation. For those of you who read this blog regularly, you know the Things are very involved in a community […]

  • Teri Biebel - I will miss you and try my best to get by without you. But stay in touch and make sure you come back. And BREAK A LEG Thing 1 and Thing 2!!!!ReplyCancel

    • Michelle - Oh, don’t you worry your pretty little curly head. I’m not going anywhere for good. ๐Ÿ™‚ And thanks for the words for the Things ~ I’ll pass them along!ReplyCancel

  • Sally - Your plate is full… hope your wine glass stays that way, too! Good luck… or, ah… break a leg.ReplyCancel

    • Michelle - I’ll make sure of it! And good correction – the Things slap me in the face if I mistakingly tell them ‘Good Luck’ (a superstition among the theatre folk, I’m told. But it’s all good. I slap them back).ReplyCancel

  • Dani Ryan - OH MY WORD! Those stone walls are amazing!

    Best of luck for opening night! I can’t wait to read about it!!!ReplyCancel

    • Michelle - Thank you! I’ll post pics of the finished garden when it’s all set up at the thea-tah. Fingers crossed it doesn’t look like a second grade play set.ReplyCancel

  • Funny Is Family - It looks great! You deserve wine, fo sho!ReplyCancel

  • The Girl Next Door Drinks and Swears - Boo. I love reading your posts. But, I totally get it. I had no idea how much time it took to be a blogger! Have fun cheering them on! What fun!ReplyCancel

  • lo @ crazy ever after - Is this by chance at The Southern Theater in Mpls? If so, I helped with their 100 year fundraiser a couple years back. Beautiful place. Tell those sweet theater girls to break a dang leg.ReplyCancel

When I woke up this morning and realized it was Friday, I was happy. Five minutes later when I remembered it was a three day weekend, I broke out the turntables and busted some sweet moves. Warning – do not watch for more than 5 seconds if you are prone to photosensitive epilepsy.  I had […]

I’ve got a confession to make. I wouldn’t last 10 minutes on The Bachelor. For those of you readers who knew me in high school, and even those who know me today (25 years later), this might not come as a shocking confession or surprise, but I’m a good girl (define good however you choose […]

  • Leanne - All that I can think of to coment is, ‘Me too’. ๐Ÿ™‚ Long live the NICE girls.ReplyCancel

  • Meghan - Me three! I’m very much the nice girl & I get made fun of it all.the.time. but you know what? They’re just jealous!

    & I definitely agree that nice girls don’t always have their shiz together all the time, cause I rarely have my shiz all together!ReplyCancel

  • Amanda Bogle - Viva la nice girls!ReplyCancel

  • Funny Is Family - I was kind of a naughty girl, but I was always nice. I did things I don’t want my daughter doing, but I’m not ashamed of them. My friends who were (and still are) good girls were just as much fun as the wild kids. Those girls from the Bachelor freak me out, too. Big time.
    -AmyReplyCancel

    • Michelle - YOU were a naughty girl?? I won’t believe it!! ๐Ÿ™‚
      And even I did things I do not want my daughter doing…I think we ALL do!ReplyCancel

  • Shay - I nodded my head to this entire post. We are so similar that I in fact moved from a small high school in Washington, where I was very involved and yes, a cheerleader, to a superb of Arizona my sophomore year of high school! Too funny!ReplyCancel

    • Michelle - What a weird coincidence (Ridgefield, WA, perhaps??).
      Funny how you can spend years almost apologetic for making good, smart choices, and feeling kind of like an outcast for it, and then you grow up and realize that everything turned out just fine – better than fine, in fact! ๐Ÿ™‚ReplyCancel

    • Shay - No way, you’re from Ridgefield? I grew up in Vancouver but a lot of my friends lived in Ridgefield! Small, small world!ReplyCancel

  • Candi - Love this. I too was a “nice” girl. Still am, although I did go through a few years where I tried the “bad girl” thing out, mainly by being a bitch, but I’m back to my nice girl now. Thank God my daughter is a nice girl, I wouldn’t want her any other way.ReplyCancel

    • Michelle - I’m sure even as a bitch you were lovely! ๐Ÿ™‚ (and even the nice girls have GOTTA be bitchy every now and again….otherwise we’d explode!)ReplyCancel

  • The Girl Next Door Drinks and Swears - Nice girl here. I was scared shitless to step out of line in high school. My dad was a probation officer and had me walking the straight and narrow.

    I’m still “nice”, but I was born with a smart mouth and a sharp tongue so I think maybe I could cut those ladies on the bachelor down to size. They’re scary, but in a desperate, I’ll sleep with you of you’ll marry me (or take me to Belize) kind of way.ReplyCancel

    • Michelle - Yep. That’d do it.
      And I definitely think a girl can be ‘nice’ but be able to put the mean girls in their place with a sharp tongue. In fact, I totally envy that.
      You’re so right – the girls who act the scariest are usually the most desperate and insecure. Since elementary school, typically!ReplyCancel

  • Teri Biebel - Count me in among the ‘nice girls’ (shut up, I was!) I dated (but nobody in my high school) but never had a boyfriend, never had casual sex in HS, didn’t drink until senior year and even then I was always really overly cautious. Judgemental? You betcha, but still, nice.ReplyCancel

    • Michelle - Somehow I think you are lying.
      hahaha….I’m joking! I’m joking! I KNEW you were a nice girl under all that snark. ๐Ÿ˜‰
      And being judgmental gets a bad rap. Because anyone who criticizes others for being judgmental is really just judging them (if that makes any sense).ReplyCancel

  • Melissa - Another nice girl chiming in. I have to admit, I worry all the time that Azalea (and any other daughters I may have) will ending be the opposite of me in every single way. Scares me to death!ReplyCancel

  • Robyn Welling - I was nice, too… Up to a point. ๐Ÿ™‚ But once I finally grew up, I realized I hadn’t been missing anything when I wasn’t being naughty – it’s just a different kind of fun, and a kind of fun you at least never have to regret! ๐Ÿ™‚ P.S. Let me know when the fetal-position Wham! singing starts – I’m totally in.ReplyCancel

  • Evani Gatsby - Lol me too, I was such a goody in high school. And by college, I was already dating Rob so I’ve been a nice girl forever! It’s too much work to be “bad” and cool.ReplyCancel

  • lo @ crazy ever after - I was a nice girl. But a nice girl with quick wit. I was voted class clown, and most likely to appear on MTV (well that didn’t happen). I got a bit more into guys my senior year of high school. They got a bit more into me. But I think because I was challenge? I dunno. I messed around a bit but wouldn’t complete the song, Paradise by the Dashboard Lights (if ya know what I mean)…until after I graduated high school. Then all hell broke loose. Ooops.ReplyCancel

  • Shay Trashay - I loved this post! Especially the barn picture and then the wedding picture–I so did not see that coming, honestly! I have tried so hard to change myself–although I’m also very nice, I still can’t hold back saying something goofy or even snarky (but never something that hurts someone) when I think it. I thought that in order to appear, maybe…a little less trashy?…I should be more refined in what I said/did. But after about 2 years (TWO YEARS?!) I realized that I just couldn’t hack it. And then I started to be myself once more–and ended up with more friends, more fun, and more laughs. I embrace it now! (See blog title. ๐Ÿ™‚ ) Thanks for the post–and keep being who you are! (That was a really inspirational and creative line I just said, wasn’t it? Haha–but seriously!)ReplyCancel

Last night there were a lot of Golden Globes on display.And I’m not talkin’ bout the statues.Seriously.What is this new trend of the low V-neck exposing the inner side boob?It makes me nervous. And okay, more than a little envious. I mean, I could never pull that off. If I were to go to the […]

  • Carolyn R - I LOVE this list!! ๐Ÿ™‚ You’re so right on! My favorite from what you showed here is definitely Julie Bowen! SO GORGEOUS! ๐Ÿ™‚ReplyCancel

    • Michelle - THank you! I didn’t actually get to see her walk the red carpet, but I wish I would’ve. That dress is killin’ me! Drapes SO beautifully. And refreshing to see her in a dress so different from all the others. I get so sick of the strapless beaded mermaid dress, don’t you?ReplyCancel

  • Kathy at kissing the frog - I love this post! Perfect wrap up. WTH Claire Danes. I had a baby 19 months ago and still don’t look like that. All the side boobage had me perplexed as well. I wish I would have seen Dr. Ross and Nurse Carol Hathaway’s reunion (loved that show). And honestly, I had no idea that was Guliana. Eww.ReplyCancel

    • Michelle - Hey, don’t sweat it – NO ONE looks like that after having a baby! And when Clooney walked up behind Julianna M. I about died. Doesn’t that seem so long ago, but they look so much the same??ReplyCancel

  • Kristin - What a perfect wrap up! G was on t.v. this morning about the fashion at the GGs and I couldn’t understand how they would let her speak in front of the camera while STILL WEARING that awful dress.
    I don’t like Julianne at all, so her dress was a moot point for me.
    Claire said that she was in a ridiculous amount of spanx. I want to believe that so I don’t have to hate her.

    My favorite moment was when Jen Garner had to mention who Ben forgot to mention. Such is the life of a wife. I love them.ReplyCancel

    • Michelle - Even with a ridiculous amount of spanx she was unbelievable looking. She’s one of those too thin girls normally, though, so I guess her body just naturally goes back to it’s prior form – like silly putty.
      Oh and I also loved when Jen thanked people for Ben! I just couldn’t adore them more!ReplyCancel

  • heather - The inner side boob is a sexy look but very specific. Not everyone will be able to carry this off! And I think IRL, this might be *too* much to reveal.ReplyCancel

    • Michelle - “very specific” – indeed!! And I agree with you – on the right person and if done right and not too much, I definitely see the appeal (Taylor Swift at the People’s Choice Awards for example). I just think it’s getting overdone. Inner side boob? NOT original.ReplyCancel

  • Lin - I didnt get to watch the awards show cause I was busy watching the season premiere of Shameless & Californication so you have no clue how fabulous it is to read this hilarious post of yours. Seriously, love the witty remarks & comments on the inner-side boob.

    Now I gotta run back to twitter & thank Kristin for tweeting your link ๐Ÿ™‚ReplyCancel

    • Michelle - Glad to have done you the service of watching for you! Anytime!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for the nice words (and tweet!) ~ I, too, will run to Twitter and thank Kristin!
      Make sure and check back after the Oscars, too!ReplyCancel

  • meg - This is such a terrific post. I don’t even know where to start – I didn’t want it to end. One of my favorite parts of the night was the little Amy Poehler/George Clooney whispering when they panned to her for her nomination, and BENN AFFLECK of course – so happy for him!

    I also noticed the ISB when Claire Danes walked on stage – there is NO WAY there wasn’t tape! And I thought Jennifer Lawrence’s dress was going to fall off her during her speech.

    I have to admit that I thought Halle Berry looked amazing when I watched it on tv… but that was like a shoulders and up shot. What a shame.

    Thanks for the recap ๐Ÿ™‚

    Meg @ myborrowedheaven.blogspot.comReplyCancel

    • Michelle - I LOVED when Amy was on Clooney’s lap! So clever and perfect! And of course Halle Berry looked amazing – she could wear a box and look fab – but the lopsided boobage made me chuckle! And anytime I can make fun of her perfect boobs you better believe I’m gonna do it! ๐Ÿ™‚ReplyCancel

  • Teri Biebel - Hey not for nuttin’ but I think you’re sportin’ your own I.S.B. in that pic up there in the upper right. Not that I was lookin’ or nuttin’ but I saw boobage, babe.ReplyCancel

    • Michelle - If you knew me in person you’d know that that, my dear, is an optical illusion. Hahaha. I’m leaning forward. It’s the only way I’d EVER be sporting cleavage or side boob of ANY kind!ReplyCancel

  • Nichole - Oh man, you seriosuly hit EVERY single point in my book! I agree with everything you said! I never thought about Keith Urban straightening his own hair though, I died at that! hahaReplyCancel

    • Michelle - You know, now that you mention it, maybe he has a hired hair straightener. It’s ridiculous. He just does less than nothing for me so I’m a little judgemental about him. Glad you enjoyed the post! ๐Ÿ™‚ReplyCancel

  • amanda kate - love this list. did you happen to notice the inner side boob on sally field? yuck. is there an age limit for cleavage?ReplyCancel

    • Michelle - NOOOOOOOooooooooooo!!!!!!! I did not!!!! Oh man, now I’m gonna have to go cue it up again and see. On second thought, I’m not sure I wanna. The answer to your last question? YES.ReplyCancel

  • lo @ crazy ever after - I liked the color of Julie Bowen’s dress. Not so much the drapery look to it. It just needed a tassel tie and it would look like Scarlet’s curtain dress from Gone with the Wind. OK. Not that bad. But yeah, wasn’t a fan. Buuuut I’m a nanny that wears yoga pants and hoodies on the regular. What do I know about fashion? Clearly not a lot.

    Also. I didn’t know Kristen Bell was pregnant until she walked out on stage. I was all, “Oh girl, bad dress, bad dress. It makes you look with child. Oh wait. She IS with child.” It was like that scene from Romy and Michelle’s High School Reunion…”You got fat.” “I’m not fat. I’m pregnant, you half wit.”ReplyCancel

  • Kara - Best Golden Globe Recap ever! Thanks for starting my morning out with a laugh!

    Hugs,
    KaraReplyCancel

  • Funny Is Family - I loved Amy and Tina, obviously, and would have liked to see more of them, too. On stage, not of the side boob.
    When Ben Affleck won, everyone was all “In your face, Academy,” but I was all “In your face, JLo!” Casper never looked more douchey.

Tomorrow night we’re hosting Husband’s company holiday party at our house. Before you get too impressed (or think I’ve completely lost my mind), there’s only 9 people in his company, so there’s only going to be 16 other people here. And it’s being catered. But still.

  • Sisterhood of the Sensible Moms - Thank you! Thank you! I could really use that wine, you know, to wash the taste of that nasty NYE drink out of my mouth. That Pintershit lingers, let me tell you.

    Good luck with that party. I’m looking at the state of my house and wondering just how long it would take me to pull it together. Probably 6 months, give or take a year. Drink a glass of wine for our actual BLirth-day! (I know you need an excuse.) EllenReplyCancel

  • toulouse - This was so nice and unexpected! I have to say, I agree with you. I’ve read every single one of these posts already and you do know what’s good, girl! So sit back, have a case of wine, and totally put off all that party getting-ready work until you’re drunk enough to say, “Eeesh dudn’t madder, open anudder boddle uv wine.”

  • Nancy Bandzuch - just stopping by to invite you to join a google plus community for Minnesota bloggers, like the two if us.

Just head to google plus and search “Minnesota blogger” in the communities. Ps- if you’d like to check out my blog, here’s the address: http://www.dosmallthingswithlove.com

  • Leanne - I had something to comment but I kept going back to look at Scott Baio and lost all thoughts. Sigh.

    But yeah, the school gave my twelve year old a better laptop then I have. I’m jealous BUT I also wouldn’t go back to being that young for the world, I love my wine and freedom too much. ๐Ÿ™‚ReplyCancel

  • yourfriendrobin - I think I had all those thens. The lift-flap doodle pad made me laugh so hard. We’d get those for long car trips and a booklet that when you wrote on it with a special market, it would make colors come out.

    Scott baio was my favorite.

    I do think that it’s too bad that kids (and adults) don’t know how to be curious. We google everything so quickly now. Yeah we used to have encyclopedias, but you really had to want to know before you looked something up.ReplyCancel

  • Sisterhood of the Sensible Moms - The worst was having to use the “Update” to the encyclopedia. What were they called?

    I had both of those pairs of skates! Remember wearing down the stops? Because we were on the streets, baby! The shoes ones really were dumb, weren’t they?

    • Michelle - Does he use the nerf gun to shoot the cat?? Sad. Or hilarious.ReplyCancel

    • Dyanne @ I Want Backsies - A little of both. He shoots very near them. VERY near. They usually bail out of the room as soon as they hear him cock the stupid thing. Still kicking myself over that purchase. (He never owned a toy gun before, having anti-gun parents, and he’s making up for lost time, I guess….)ReplyCancel

    #10 – Usually this is either hubby or one of the dogs (both boys, go figure)
    #9 – EVERYDAY thing that comes out of my mouth. EVERYDAY it’s ignored
    #8 – Here’s it’s “get your stuff off the couch/stairs/table/counter/dog and bring it to your room”
    #7 – For me it’s 15’s clothes on the bathroom floor. Every. Single Day.
    #6 – This isn’t as much of an issue since I gave birth 13 years ago to Sasquatch. I know her socks from everyone else’s because they double as dog sweaters for my 70 lb. dogs.
    #5 – Ok you’ve got me here. But I do ask everyday “Did you feed the dogs?” which is a pointless question because apparently no one else in my house has EVER fed nor do they know HOW to feed a dog.
    #4 – For us it’s Love You. Gotta hear it all the time.
