'Lipstick Jungle' Canceled
After months of speculation, it appears that 'Lipstick Jungle' has officially been canceled -- at least according to its star, Brooke Shields. "It was going to stay, and we just were officially told it's finally not coming back," she told E! in an interview late last week. "It's very sad. I think a lot of people were really sad, but I think we hung on a really long time. It was three great years that we've been working on it."

I found these cute glasses on Etsy through Hot Mama Glassware. The seller was awesome, and custom made these for me in the colors I chose. I got the pink one for myself, and the turquoise one for Am.
And this is the adorable glass I received from Am. The napkins are a perfect touch ... so fun!!

I may have to go buy some spring blooms to stick in the yard. I can at least pretend that we have been having gorgeous sunshine to sprout up the tulips and daffodils.

And, by the way ... you only need your ID if you are purchasing cold medications that induce sleep. No ID is required for sleeping pills themselves. (???)

And on another note, my little guy has decided to start potty training! He is 2 years, and 4 months old! I have not even started to try with him - his older brother was poop trained at 2 1/2 and completely potty trained by 3 years old. I learned with my first that you really can't pressure them ... they have to want to do it on their own. I guess I was just shocked that Sean was ready this soon. So after noticing dry diapers after shopping trips and naps for a couple days, we made a big deal about this new milestone. He picked out a new potty seat, and got some cool new Batman under-roos, and runs around the house all proud of himself! Throughout the day he does great - I don't trust public outings yet without a diaper, and he still wears one to sleep, but he is doing awesome!! I will admit though that I am already exhausted with the constant bathroom trips for the little tinkles, but hey - at least the dribbles aren't running down his legs! Ha!

OLYMPIA -- It could become illegal to discriminate against women who breast-feed in public under a bill that has passed the state House.
Women who breast-feed in public are already protected from criminal charges for public indecency. But lawmakers want to extend those protections.
Movie theaters, parks, shopping malls, concert theaters, libraries and schools are just a few examples of places where discrimination against breast-feeding mothers could be prohibited.
Supporters of the bill say breast-feeding is the healthiest way to feed young infants. They say women who breast-feed in public have been stigmatized in the past.
The bill was approved by a unanimous vote Tuesday, and now goes to the Senate.
-- The Associated Press
I have no issues with breast-feeding. I personally chose not to nurse either one of my boys, but I give kudos to those women who do nurse. I am totally fine with public breast-feeding as well. It is not uncomfortable for me to see a mom, with a baby concealed under a blanket, nursing in public. It does, however, bother the snot out of me when I see a mom walking around a store, or sitting in a restaurant with her boob hanging out of her top, baby latched on, and NO COVER-UP!! Yes, people, I have actually seen this - several times! There is nothing natural about strangers seeing your boobs and swollen nips! Have some class! Seriously! I am all about protecting women's rights with their children, but I also have the right to be in a public place with my own children and not be offended with an inappropriate visual of body parts that are supposed to be covered up!! There's nothing like turning down an aisle in a store, or eating a meal out, and running into a bare boob!

Here are the top 5 reasons I know Miss Monthly is paying a visit:
1. I retain water like a whale.
2. I go from happy to get the hell outta my way in a matter of minutes, with no warning.
3. Patience? What's patience?
4. My Siberian Husky and I would be a great match in a hair shedding contest.
5. HUNGRY is an understatement ... I binge!
It is this time of the month when I get the motivation to hit the gym because I feel like a cow. Energy levels are sucked out of me though, so all I can do is talk about how I'll get there when this time passes. Afterall, no girl wants to get her arse kicked at the gym when she already feels like she's been sucker-punched! Hubby has been a peach at trying to motivate me (and dealing with my bad-ass attitude), so maybe I'll meet him there after he gets done with work. The boys love the kids club and would appreciate the break away from me - ha! If anything, maybe I'll just go sit in the sauna and try to de-bloat.

I have hit the dreaded time in my life (that I was hoping would NEVER come) where my metabolism is slowing. I can no longer skip a meal or two, and wake up the next day with a couple pounds missing. Sigh. Turning 28 is apparently my cue to start hitting the gym on a regular basis, instead of the 'once every couple months when I feel motivated' routine that I have been in the last year. I am not gonna lie - I am slightly depressed with this new dose of reality! Second guessing what I eat, and fighting late night cravings is a bitch (pardon the french, the description is accurate), but I'll adjust. I'll have to find some sort of enjoyment in working out - any suggestions??? - and cut out all the crap I have been eating. No more Krispy Kremes, pecan-praline ice cream (it's rare that I eat ice cream, but when I find a flavor I love ... oy!!), and frozen Totinos pizzas (don't judge - my boys love them, too!).
