Wednesday afternoon I took them to the mall because Devin claimed all his long pants no longer fit and we also have a wedding to attend this weekend. I finally realized, after about the third store, that he fully believed he was going to get away with wearing what he apparently considers a "fancy" t-shirt which is nothing more than a Ralph Lauren tee.
For reasons I will never understand, he somehow assumed that little man-on-the-horse-playing-polo emblem was his ticket out of a collared shirt. He then proceeded to inform me that he does not wear collared shirts anymore. Period. So we had us a little Come-to-Jesus meeting in which I informed him that he could not be more mistaken because he will be, as sure as the sun sets in the west and rises in the east, be sporting a collared shirt to a wedding this very weekend if I have to tie him down and put it on him myself.
He then picked out a shirt.With a collar. Which is good because I don't really know the first thing about hog-tying a person. Or a hog either, for that matter.
In other news, I discovered something in the way of snack foods this week that I think may very well change my life, or at least my love-hate relationship with potato chips and french onion dip. I started buying the veggie chips awhile back but this week while standing in the dairy section, mulling over the many yogurt selections, my eyes landed on a product I was unaware existed...French Onion Oikos GREEK YOGURT DIP for chips.
I could not get it in my buggy fast enough though I did have my doubts and suspicions about it tasting anything at all like real dip. Thank the Lord I was wrong because sweet mercy, this is too good to be true! It is delicious. Which is why I had to list it as my first favorite for this week...
All That and a Bag of Chips

Who hasn't felt this way a time or two?
I've been thinking of painting the inside of
our front door for awhile. Love this color...so serene.

Useless Parenting Question
When will I learn to stop asking this?
The last time was yesterday afternoon when I found
ink stains all over the white kitchen sink. I knew it had
Dracen written (no pun intended) all over it. He immediately
started rambling off his it-was-just-an-accident-I-have-no-idea-
how-it-happened excuse. Hairspray to the rescue!
(Learned that trick five years ago, from his kindergarten teacher.)
Words of Wisdom Pillow Cover
I want this.
A Good Read
I read a lot over the summer and keep saying
I'm going to do a post on all the books I read. This one
really stood out. I had already read Jeanette Walls' memoir,
This newest one, The Silver Star, did not disappoint.
Now if I can just figure out how to think
one step ahead of Dracen...
Let It Be
Because that pillow cover put the words in my head.
