Without further ado, here are all of the fabulous things I've learned this week:
1. Apparently there is this ultra secret gift that stay-at-home moms give each other when they're welcoming a new member into their ranks.
I received my gift bag from my friend Carly this week. Not bad, right? I feel like the Quilting Today and the champers cancel each other out. And yes, the bottle of champagne is empty. What can I say? Champagne with an ice cube sure beat the Crystal Light I was planning on serving at the playdate.
2. Our readers are much funnier than we are. As if our little contest wasn't proof enough, Laura called me on my cell phone to read me some of the comments on the Drew Barrymore post out loud.
Personal favorites include:
--"Do you think Lucy Liu and Cameron Diaz are texting each other to schedule an intervention?Angel down. Angel down!"
--"Here's what's funny to me--Justin's whole "thing" is that he's the cool guy in the Mac ads. Boyfriend just doesn't look so cool walking around with Drew in her clown garb. Just sayin'. He needs to reign her in lest he lose his credibility and suddenly everyone wants to be the PC guy. I'll bet that PC guy's wife wears Tory Burch."I'm not sure which is more pathetic, the fact that Laura and I have entire phone conversations about comments on the blog or that Little Ms. J. and Sarah Francis totally showed up our post in the comments. Well played, girls. Well played.
3. There are certain people who I should not be permitted to go shopping with. You know who you are. It was just an innocent trip to the mall to kill time before we had to pick up the kiddies from camp and I ended up coming home with these: Um...oops. I'm supposed to be saving money for a new laptop, but these were on sale. SALE! How could I pass them up? They're sparkly. Do you see the sparkles?
Anyways, they're all mine now and there's no way I'm taking them back. Ever. Thank god for friends who remind you that one has an obligation to purchase shoes like this when they're found abandonded on a sale rack.
It's really more like adoption than shopping.
4. I heart Major Agent. Laura and I have been feeling totally unfocused since we've been on sub, so we're going to pitch a few of our new project ideas to Major Agent next week. I have the feeling that once we're working on an agent sanctioned manuscript we'll hit the ground running with our WIP.
Bottom line: our agent rocks. Hard. I honestly can't imagine doing any of this without her. We're lucky girls.
I'm not sure this post can take any more fabulousity, so have a fab weekend everyone! We'll be back on Monday with our usual nonsense.
