Random Bits Of Randomness

  • My allergies are MESSING ME UP. I don’t have issues regularly but the last 48 hours have seen my eyes swollen and my sneezes constant making me SLEEPY and TIRED and EXHAUSTED and WORN THE EFF OUT.
  • Speaking of being sleepy…I’ve been getting to spend my sleepless hours catching up on Lost Girl which is one of my new favorite shows. And Dyson (Kris Holden-Ried) may be my new celebrity crush. Which means I’ll find out he’s gay sometime in the next year. See: Neil Patrick Harris, John Barrowman, and Matt Bomer.
  • Speaking of celebrity crushes…I am totally loving every interview I see with Jennifer Lawrence in the Hunger Games media blitz. I’ve seen her talk about peeing in the woods, forgetting to shave her armpits, and wetting her pants when she was scared by a practical joke. In other words, SHE IS TOTALLY ME. I love her.
  • Speaking of peeing in the woods…No. Not really. I’m not going to talk about peeing in the woods. I’ve actually not had to do that yet. Not while trail running, anyway. I’m glad too because Spring has not really arrived yet so the woods are still relatively bare and see-through.
  • I hate Easter. My #1 candy weakness is the Cadbury Creme Egg and every Easter I gain 5lbs just because I can’t walk by a display without buying AT LEAST ONE. But since they sometimes come in packs of THREE I often buy a 3-pack and EAT THEM ALL IMMEDIATELY.
  • Look! Nikki chopped her hair! She’s been wanting short hair for awhile but we keep assuming it’s just her tendency to be dramatic. But since she’s been consistently asking for awhile, we decided we’d let her do it. And it turned out SO CUTE. And she grew up about 5 years with those few inches.

    Easter Creme Eggs. When I walk by a display they call my name…Sharon…Sharon…please take us home. None have made it there yet. In related news, I need to clean wrappers from my van today.

    Speaking of Cadbury Creme Eggs … oh mah lawd Cadbury Creme Eggs. I do love them, and for me they’re the perfect indulgence, because more than one is just too rich for me.

  • Monica

    Nikki looks so cute! Tell her she made a great decision and she looks beautiful!

    Have you seen the recipe for Cadbury Egg Cupcakes on Pinterest? Holy cow!

  • Katie McCollum

    Cadbury Creme Eggs are my WEAKNESS!! I LOVE them!!! One year early in our marriage, my husband gave me a brown paper shopping bag….FILLED with Cadbury Creme Eggs multi-packs!!!! I made them last for months!! (I swear they used to come in 4 packs though…didn’t they?)

  • Heather

    i can totally resist the Cadburry creme eggs, thankfully … my problem, however, is with EVERYTHING else 😛
    The actress sounds awesome, and Nikki’s hair looks freakin adorable.

  • Katy

    I’m exactly the same with Creme Eggs. I thought I was the only one and now I don’t feel as bad. Nikki looks so cute with short hair. My daughter has been asking me the same but like you, I’m waiting a bit until I actually believe her!
