Laughs Lately

I was babysitting my cute, little niece Aubrey the other night. I always enjoy our time together because, regardless of what kind of day I've had, she makes me laugh.

Aubrey's most recent favorite thing to do is to tuck you in to bed. I laid down on the floor, she came over and said, "night night," closed my eyes for me, rubbed my back, and covered me with a blanket. Except, the blanket has to be just right. How adorable. I asked Aubrey if she was going to go to Harvard and she said, "Yep."

In order to fix the vision in one of her eyes, she just started wearing glasses which she absolutely loves! She looked at me, with a very concerned expression on her face, held her arms out to the side while shrugging her shoulders and said, "Chelsea... where are your glasses?"

Now, I hardly ever wear my glasses. Only when I have horrible migraines from staring at the computer screen at work. Oops. So, Aubrey had never even seen me in glasses, just assumed that everyone had some. I remembered that I had my glasses in my purse so, without her looking, I snuck over and put them on. She was thrilled :)

She is also thrilled with the fact that we can see ourselves while taking pictures on my iPhone. Try taking pictures with the screen facing away, and she'll grab the phone and turn it back around. What a goober! She makes me laugh. Here are some other things that make me laugh:

1. TMNT Tee - I always wanted to be "Don"
2. Butta USB Hand Warmers - I know I'm not the only one whose hands turn blue when I get to work.
3. Sorry We're Closed Eye Mask - ...Get it?
4. Correcting Your Grammar Sign - Sad but true...

You're probably wondering where I find all this random craziness. Have you heard of If not, it's this awesome sale website I found full of eclectic furniture, clothes, tech accessories, etc. I signed up to get their emails everyday where they feature new products that are on sale and I always see something that makes me crack up. Even if you don't sign up for their emails, check out from time to time. You just might find something you like :)

Lastly, this one isn't necessarily funny but it IS amazing! Pinterest just announced their SECRET BOARDS! Oh, yes... it's happening. Now, if you want to a create a holiday shopping board or a board for a new project you're keeping secret - bam! You're welcome ;)

What makes you laugh lately? Oh, and get ready... big things are happening on the blog tomorrow.

Awwwww! What a cutie! I love that she asked you where your glasses were :) Annnnnd I for sure need those hand warmer thingies in my life. Like, as I'm typing this even, my hands are like freaking ice cubes. And it's only going to get colder.

I'm an au pair and the 16 month old that I watch loves when I take pictures. If I have my iPod out or my real camera, she has to see the display. And if I point a camera at her, she freezes and poses so I can take her picture.

I'm always judging bad grammar and incorrectly spelled words.
