Speaking of birds, the other day when I was stopped at a stoplight, minding my own business, jamming out to "We are the Wild Ones" by Nina (I'm MAJORLY obsessing over this song right now), I started hearing the unmistakable ear curdling squawk of crow. Now, to fully appreciate just how terrifying this sound is to me, you'd have to know that I was once harassed by a crow when I was out on a run. Yep. Not even kidding. Let's not go into details, though. Anyway, I hear the demonic cry of one of those little spawns of Satan and I almost died right then and there because I momentarily lost my mind and thought that the crow somehow got into my car and was about to kill me. Anyway, after frantically looking around my car to make sure it wasn't hiding anywhere deciding how best to rip my head off, I decided maybe I was just going crazy and hearing things. Much to my chagrin, though, I heard another squawk. This time I knew it wasn't in my car so I started to look for it outside. As I was looking around, I noticed the guy in the car next to me. He looked like a ginger Hagrid and his expression looked like he had just witnessed the death of a puppy. He was terrified too. Anyway, we linked eyes for a second and exchanged a "oh, good, we're not crazy" glance. After that, I spotted the crow flying around over head, the light turned green, and I went on my way feeling comforted by the fact that giant men with red beards are also pee your pants scared of birds.

Now for some riveting outfit chitchat. First, this "L'amour" bodysuit is just divine. It's got the little snaps at the bottom, for more convenient potty breaks, that I always wished bodysuits would have! Now I can proudly proclaim to you all that I'm basically just wearing an adult onesie! Yippee!! Anyway, this fab little bodysuit was a present from one of my best friends and boy does she know me well! Perfect birfday present! Also, what do you all think of my knock off Keds? Pretty fab right? I'm so stoked the Keds look is back in! I only wish I could actually afford real Keds. But I'm not supposed to be shopping anymore and even if I could shop I don't know how I'd feel about laying down $50 for a pair of shoes when there's tuition to be paid. Also, I was under the mild delusion that Keds used to be affordable once upon a time because when I was a kid I had a new pair of Keds every year, and there were definitely times in my childhood when we were anything but rolling in dough. When I asked my Mom about it, though, she told me they've always been that pricey, she just always made an effort to put enough money aside to buy us nice things. Melt my heart. My mom was truly the best mom possible for me. If I recall correctly, there was a time when she went at least a good ten years without ever really buying herself anything. That's motherhood for you. Sacrificing your own wants and needs for the wants and needs of your kids. Thanks Momma! Now, all of you send a smile to your mother! :)
