Apologies for the blurry photos. This post was written before I switched sites and the pictures didn’t transfer well. If you want to see them clearly, you’ll have to stop by sometime.  This week’s favorites list is short. And blond. With killer legs and a powerful voice. And last night she Blew. Us. Away. If […]

  • Sally - Before I read the explanation… I was gonna ask you if he was groping her…ReplyCancel

  • Amy Matsumoto - I saw Carrie last year on labor day weekend at Mystic Lake Casino. Not sure if that’s around your where abouts. She did mention on stage that she wasn’t expecting it to be quite so cold and she was glad she happened to have ONE sweater on her bus. Maybe the cold scared her to phoenix.ReplyCancel

  • Friday Favorites - Having a Great Time...Wish You Were Here. - Youre My Favorite Today - […] stupid magazine that I only bought because it had Carrie Underwood on the cover (and you know how I feel about HER).But I did manage to read one book and start […]ReplyCancel

I’ve always thought of myself as a nice person.As a general rule, I don’t wish ill-will on others, I smile and speak kindly to receptionists and airport security and the mentally challenged adults who bag my groceries, and I even give telemarketers a minute or two to start their spiel before hanging up on them […]

  • Mrs. Newlywed Giggles - I live in area where are they fifty billin squirrels too. I have a tally for myself
    Mrs.Newlywed Giggles = 5; Squireels = 0
    Yep, I have killed five squirrels with my car. Just give me a call and I’ll drive over. I”m pretty sure I will at least kill some of them for you. LOLReplyCancel

  • Carolyn - BAHAHAHAHAHA! This post is hilarious. I feel for you and your half eaten pumpkins, but it’s still pretty funny. Wanna borrow Cooper and Grace? They LOVE chasing squirrels. 🙂ReplyCancel

  • Anonymous - I cannot stop laughing! My neighbor shoots them from his kitchen window…it’s creepy, but effective…almost feel sorry for the little guys.ReplyCancel

  • Dawn - hahahha…sorry, this is so not funny, {but, it is a little bit!} My dad sits on our deck and shoots them with a BB gun. It doesn’t even kill them, but scares them out of the yard.ReplyCancel

  • Kimmyyy83 - LMAO!!!!! Your hatred for squirrels equals mine of birds. DANG they TORE UP that pumpkin. I say you have a slingshot party, invite others, and go to town!ReplyCancel

  • Anonymous - Buy an air soft rifle at Dicks and let Brian go to town. We have a squirrel graveyard (except we don’t bother to bury them – they are flung in with a shovel) in the woods behind our house. I bought my son one the day after a damn acorn dropped into my gin and tonic on the deck. War was declared then at our house. Don’t mess with my drink!! PeggyReplyCancel

    • Michelle - hahaha Peggy – The air soft rifle has been discussed in the past, but now I definitely think it will be purchased this weekend! So maybe they’re all running scared from your house straight into my backyard! 😉ReplyCancel

  • Tracy - Oh, my GOD!!! Are you my neighbor? I am having the same battle!!!! http://www.momaical.com/2012/10/the-running-of-squirrels.html

    I’m so glad Ms. Snarkfest sent me to your page!

I spend a lot of time on this little blog talking about my favorites, but something that I haven’t had the pleasure to write about in the past six and a half months (because it’s been the dry season) is something that comes pretty close to topping the list. Award Shows. I love Award Shows. […]

  • Sally - Yep, that one dress totally looks like curtains… I had thought of that as I looked at the picture… before I even read your comment.. and those aren’t curtains I want in my house!ReplyCancel

  • Kelly { MessyDirtyHair } - Clare Danes killed it in that yellow dress!ReplyCancel

  • Dana - ahah! Your comments are hilarious!!ReplyCancel

This week the air turned crisp, the apples turned beautiful and the strawberries in the store turned ugly, the fuzzy socks were located (from the depths of the sock drawer…and under the bed) and on Tuesday I smelled something kind of burning in my house and then realized the heater had come on (I quickly […]

  • Sally - Pretty sure you should be recording a few football games as part of your weekday napping strategy!

    Those were my Sunday afternoons growing up… along with Fireside apples… kind of like old school Honeycrisp. So good. Have a great weekend!ReplyCancel

  • Mrs. Newlywed Giggles - I am now going to rush to Costco to get me some bags of the brownie. Genius whoever thought of that!ReplyCancel

  • Carolyn - Love this! Seriously… fall is my favorite time of year, and I hope that Minnie knows to make it last longer for us this year. 🙂 Football is the best thing ever to take a nap too! LOVE IT! I need to go buy some of those candles… YUM!ReplyCancel

  • Jen Grantham - Hi Michelle! I’m your newest follower. I found you via A Prince and Prozac. You had me at “Self-awareness is sexy” and your love of football and naps. Well played.
    Jen @ CraftyMisAdventures.comReplyCancel

  • Jennifer fromFUMC - So funny, per usual! My life is not going to feel complete until I get one of those leave candles…ReplyCancel

  • Melissa - Totally on with you on napping during football games! Why IS it the perfect lullaby?? I also agree on the Caribou vs. Starbucks pumpkin spice latte battle. But I have to say the BEST pumpkin spice latte I’ve ever had is from a vendor at the Mill City Farmer’s Market. It tasted so REAL and not like fkaey syrup. But you better believe I drink my fair share of Starbuck’s version and love them.ReplyCancel

  • Becky - Love this fall post! I don’t know if I should hit up Costco and get the brownie things…I really really want them but what if I can’t stop eating them?! The difficult decisions I face in day to day life 🙂

    Have a great weekend!ReplyCancel

My blogroll today was full of posts titled, “I Believe”.When I saw the first one, I figured it was a post about Santa and the magic of Christmas (a little early, but as someone who may or may not have already picked out her Christmas cards, it didn’t faze me).But then I rolled past a […]

  • The Management - Not only do I BELIEVE in not ever cooking or cleaning the kitchen…. I actually never cook or clean the kitchen.

    Why else would I have adopted a random ginger guy into my life, amirite?!ReplyCancel

  • JKT - YES, YES, YES. I believe in staying in bed until the very last minute, napping as often as possible, an hour in target is the best and by all means when you get a coupon for 50% off it means spend that much more.ReplyCancel

  • Kari - I believe this is the best list I’ve seen. 🙂

  • Rachel - Oh wow…I’ve never thought of a 50% off coupon as meaning that you can spend more…I was just always happy to be spending less than I thought I’d have to. I’m not sure my husband would thank you for revealing this information to me. ;PReplyCancel

  • ~Dawn~ - I believe this is the best I believe list I’ve ever seen…and I believe I agree on everything you say! heheReplyCancel

  • Sally - I believe… you are a very wise woman. Very wise, indeed.ReplyCancel

About 4 months ago I saw some photos an old college friend in Seattle had posted on facebook of she and a group of friends in an art studio, all painting pictures of the Space Needle and drinking wine. I was so jealous and vocally complained to Husband that (as usual) some other city had […]

This weekend my little Thing 2 got her first taste of the highs and heartaches of showbiz. Before I tell you about that though, let me bring you up to speed. Since the time both of them could toddle, my girls have been living-room performers – dressing up, creating bizarre and hilarious characters, singing, dancing, […]

  • Sally - Hey, the Angsty Teen was cast as a nun for the Sound of Music down here, too! Fortunately for me and all those around her, that was the part she wanted! (Yes, there is a God and he loves me very much!)

    See you tomorrow night!!!!ReplyCancel

  • kyna... - What a heartbreaking, but important lesson for both of your girls to learn!
    ♥ KynaReplyCancel

  • Sally - Great to meet you last night… I think I solved the no-reply problem…. maybe? Give it a try!ReplyCancel

  • Julie Chenell DeNeen - I dread the day that our theatre company rejects kids. Right now, they are accepted into every show- even if they don’t have lines, they get something. But I love the way you tell the story!!ReplyCancel

If you read UsWeekly….well…weekly like I do, you are familiar with the running bit they do called “What’s in my bag?” Here’s Leann’s $2,000 Fendi bag.  I’m surprised to see gum in there.  Doesn’t each piece have like 2 calories? And every week, I look at each item so carefully, as if – as if – […]

  • Mrs. Newlywed Giggles - Advil Migraine for me!!! what do you mean a recovering migraine sufferer? I ask because i am a current migraine sufferer.
    Lipgloss is my second item.
    MAC studio fx powder.

    and of course the important stuff like keys, money, wallet. LOLReplyCancel

  • Nikki - Excedrin – I also suffer from frequent headaches/occasional migraines. It is my NUMBER 1 thing by far. I love the idea of your barbie case. I will separate my credit cards from my cash asap. Great advice!ReplyCancel

  • The Management - haha, I love this. I like that you’re showing us the honest contents of your purse.

    I’m looking inside mine right now. The things in here I can’t live without- sunglasses, foot balm, and lip balm.

    Yep- I said foot balm. Kelowna is like a freaking desert and I HATE when my feet get dry. I put foot balm on under my desk when no one is looking, and then I take it home and use it before bed, too.

    I’m an old lady.

    The weirdest thing in my purse- boarding passes from a flight back in July. I’m unorganized.ReplyCancel

  • Kelly - I’ve been meaning to do a “whats in my bag” post for a while… and now I have a reason to– to play along with you 🙂 Love your Michael’s coupon description LOL! And the credit card case is really interesting! LOVE the purse too, so pretty!!ReplyCancel

  • Shay - I am obsessed with big hunks! So much so that whenever I get packages/presents from back home a few bars are always included (they dont sell them ANYWHERE in MO!)ReplyCancel

  • hilda - Finally, an issue that I am passionate about. I have looked for information of this caliber for the last several hours. Your site is greatly appreciated. wine gift bagsReplyCancel

The other day as I was flipping through magazines, I realized that I haven’t done an installment of Hot Hollywood Hell in a really long time.  I’m kind of disappointed in myself.  There have been so many fabulously wrong choices (fashion…relationship…lifestyle) over the past several months.  And don’t worry, it’s not because I have stopped reading UsWeekly, People […]

  • Kayla Lynn - haha i love this! rianna’s tat :/ and thank you for that xtina pic 🙂ReplyCancel

  • Kelly - LOL!!! Sooooooooooo SPOT ON. Hilarious, Michelle. LOVE your comparison between Madonna and the Scarecrow; FUNNY. And that Christina photo? My gawd. Who do they think they’re fooling?? And Rihanna’s tat? Eeeeesh. Kiiiinda cool (only a little bit, in my opinion) but think of HOW weird that is going to look in like 20 years when gravity starts to work on her???ReplyCancel

  • Nikki - All I keep thinking with Rihanna’s tat is if/when she’s pregnant…how will it look afterwards? ps I’m so happy to be a new follower bc I too am slightly (ok majorly) addicted to hollywood gossip. Miley’s wedding is so never gonna happen! pps i’m adding this because i have just failed 4 times at the captcha. hope this works this time!ReplyCancel

    • Michelle - Captcha?? I have captcha?? CRAP! I hate it when I have to go through that! I never even knew there were comment setiings (until I just found them). hahaha…seriously, I’m a blogging fail when it comes to all that stuff. Thanks for reading…for following…for appreciating good Hollywood juice…and for leading me to removing the damned captcha!! 🙂ReplyCancel

  • Carolyn - OH MY GOODNESS! I’m dying! I need to comment on every one. 🙂

    Miley – oh honey. Only one person can rock the bleached rocker cut, and it’s NOT you.

    Madonna – Ugh. Gross. I can’t even begin. How does someone’s arms get like that?

    J Simpson – OK. First, there’s a scarf tied around her baby. Second, it’s in a KNOT! NOT ok.

    Xtina – dude. First… that pic is totally of a Barbie doll. And it’s creepy how gross that arm looks. Photoshop fail. Second… Xtina might want to invest in some stock for a brassiere company. She’s going to need it. Those suckers are destined to be locked in a bra FOREVER. Huge. Huge. Huge. Huge.ReplyCancel

  • Niken - Thanks so much for this! i need laughs today!!!!
    Miley looks like a boy in that haircut i think, and it’s just too much boobs from x-tinaReplyCancel

  • Brie - Did you see the lovely tat Chris Brown got on the side of his neck that is a picture of a woman who was physically abused? It is just amazing artwork….black eye and everything. Ugh dislike him sooooo much. I also think Pink should pull Miley aside and either coach her in how to dress or knock her upside the head. Haven’t decided yet.ReplyCancel

  • Becky - haha, love these! Thanks for the laughs!ReplyCancel

  • moosenoose.com - What the hell is going on with Madonna? I’m 30 (ish) and I am way too old to dress like that! The arms are super scary. As for Rhianna, damn that tat is going to look amazing when her tits sag either side of it! What is wrong with these people. The worst pic has to be Beckham though. Sorry, but he makes me want to barf.ReplyCancel

  • The Management - you’re so right that miley is going all p!nk on us.

    and that tat… wow. why oh whyyyy?ReplyCancel

  • ~Dawn~ - LOL You are so spot on on every single one of these pics. YIKES!! Xtina’s arm?? WTF?

    And thanks for sharing that last photo – YUM!ReplyCancel

  • Amy @ Not Your Average Baby Blog - hahahaha you are better than Joan Rivers. You should totally have a gig on Fashion Police. Maybe a mom edition or something?? That was a crap ton of photoshopping on Christina…what is that all about? Totes not the same person I saw WITH NO PANTS (and a weird, sparkly body suit) on The Voice last season.ReplyCancel

    • Miranda F - I second that! Mom edition of fashion police!! love it!!

      ps-MORE SAHMP please! 😉ReplyCancel

11 years ago at this time I was trying desperately to get another hour of sleep. My 4 month old had had a fussy night, and my husband had woken me up at 4:30 a.m. to say goodbye.   He was going to NYC for a business meeting and had to catch a 6 a.m. […]
