Well, well, look what we have here…

It’s INSTA FRIDAY again!!!

(Seriously, how has it been another week already???!!!)

In case you’re new in These Parts, Insta Friday is a way to document the random of your week through cell phone pics.

I happen to have an iPhone and use the Instagram app (hence the cute name), but any cell phone pictures will do!

You know how when you buy a red car and suddenly all you ever see are red cars?

And you don’t really remember there being so many red cars before?

Well, ever since I blogged about my need desire for an ice cream maker, I see them everywhere.

Maybe it’s a sign.

Or maybe if I keep blogging about them, one will magically show up on my doorstep.


A certain child of mine, who shall remain nameless Lucy, decided to adorn her baby doll with marker.

It’s oddly reminiscent of Mike Tyson’s weird face tattoo.

So now it totally creeps me out.

Bad baby!

Poor sad dog.

So sad that your owners took you to the vet and spent their hard earned money on you.

So sad that this plastic cone on your head is keeping you from scratching your face off and looking like Mike Tyson.

You have such a sad sad life.

I bet other dogs in other dog countries hold fundraisers for you and your sad doggy existence.

(It’s just an ear infection and she was scratching at it so bad she had a hot spot on her face.  No bigs.)


Jilly had a doc appointment today.

She looks great, all is well…but she still doesn’t weigh 20 pounds.

She’s almost two.

Rear facing it is.  Sheesh.

This is the Stinky Corner Blanket.

No really.  That’s what we actually call it.

It reeks.

Smells like…I don’t even know, but it’s nasty.

I wash it every week.  At least.

Still reeks.

Henry loves it.  Which makes me gag thinking about it.

He announced that when he is “big and 4″ that he won’t need the blanket anymore.

I’m totally jumping on that.  It’s gonna be a disaster.  I can feel it in my bones.

I don’t know if it’s actually “Authentic Asian Taste” or not…but I do know that I love it.

Bell peppers, onions, brocolli, cauliflower, and chicken over a bed of steamed rice.


I got me a mug rug from Miss KnittyBitties.

It has happy colors.

And it’s reaaaallly well made.

You should get one too.

And no, she didn’t pay me to tell you that.

I was at Kohl’s and saw this gem.

Corset lingerie that doubles as a shirt?  Check.  Mini skirt with added slit for just a little more thigh?  Check.  Super duper high heels?  Check.  Smoky cat eyes and pouty lips?  Check.

I mean, if that doesn’t scream perfect for my daughter to play with, I don’t know what does!

Oh wait.

There’s this one.

Her shirt not only keeps her nice and cool in the hot Monster High sun, but it also has a great little strip o’ fabric for added sexiness.

Seems to me that would leave some gnarly tan lines.


Turquoise lips.  Because she’s kinda funky.  An original.

And a skirt that doesn’t even cover her vagina.

(Yes, I used the v-word.  Sorry folks, but it is what it is.  Am I wrong here?!?!)

I’ve decided that there must be some National Doctor’s Office Decor Magazine.

Because I swear I’ve seen this garden motif with random roman columns in just about every office I’ve ever been in.

Or at least something awful close.

Maybe some big study was done that garden scenes are calming.  Or maybe I’m overanalyzing.  Possible.


Okay, it’s your turn!  Link up your cell phone pics of the week and let us know what random you’ve been up to!

I'm a mom to four. A wife to one. I believe in story. I love telling you about mine and would love to hear yours. There's really no sense in wasting our suffering and not sharing in each other's joy. We're all in this together...even if it doesn't always feel like it.

    I had a great wise pediatrician with Andy and Duncan who told me to bring the smelliest stuffed toy with me if I ever had to take them to the ER. He said the smell is what comforts them! Anyway, hope Henry is really going to give up his blankie after he’s four. We won’t say how old Uncle Duncan was when he gave his up. :)

    Good – I should certainly pronounce, impressed with your site. I had no trouble navigating through all the tabs as well as related information ended up being truly easy to do to access. I recently found what I hoped for before you know it at all. Reasonably unusual. Is likely to appreciate it for those who add forums or something, web site theme . a tones way for your client to communicate. Excellent task..
