Toilets, Raging Hormones, Blue Nail Polish...Basically A Bunch of Randoms.

Lots of things going on in my life right now...hmmm...where to even begin....



I'll start off with plumbing- we live in an older home with older pipes...recently, these pipes have decided to just not work the way they should. So last night I had the shower running and flushed a tissue down the toilet, and our toilet proceeded to OVERFLOW...not just a teeny bit of water...I'm talking like NIAGRA FALLS UP IN THAT BIYOTCH. I guess I am not supposed to flush the toilet while the shower is running?! Who knew. Anywho...husband has to stay home from work after lunch today and wait for the plumber because I am 9 months pregnant and REFUSE to have a toilet and/or shower that does not work properly!!!

Next...I am ON THE HUNT for this nail polish:



It's called Butler Please and the beautiful Katie posted a picture of her wearing it on Instagram (and on her blog today) and I must have it. I think this would be perfect to wear when I'm in labor. Yes? 

Katie, I stole this from you. Your nails look fab here and I'm jealous. If I can't find this color, I expect you to overnight this to me immediately so I can paint my fingers and toes. Then, I will overnight it back to you. K?

Third....my Nap Nanny was recalled.

I am so MAD about this. You can read about it in the news here, but basically it sounds like people were using it improperly and this is what caused the recall. I'm probably going to return it and not take any chances...I'm just having a difficult time finding out how to return it and where.

I was so excited about receiving it I even tweeted about it last month:





And finally- An open letter to my hormones (which I totally blame 100% on pregnancy and nothing else):

Dear Raging Hormones,

How are you? I've been wondering if I was going to be graced with your presence during my pregnancy. I thought I was going to get away with not ever having to meet you, but alas, you reared your ugly head last night and my poor husband was the target. It didn't help that our toilet was overflowing and I just wanted to take a shower and go to sleep only to be awakened every hour to get up and pee, but that is NO EXCUSE for you to make your debut and scare the living daylights out of my husband and our poor dog. I have never heard that tone in my voice before (EVER) and I swear I thought I was the little girl on the Exorcist. My head may have even spun a little. Thank goodness I didn't have any pea soup. Anyways, I would just like to ask you to leave me alone. I've had a glorious 9 months without you and to see you arrive and stay awhile will only make things worse. I am encouraging myself to take deep breaths and PRAY that you leave the second my precious baby boy makes his debut, but I hear that is tragically not the case and you will stick around for the long haul. I'm prepared to accept that you are here, but believe me...it is only temporary and you will be evicted soon enough.

Signed,
Me



That is all for this lovely Friday. Have good weekend! I'm out!

I have the same nail polish! I adore it. I got mine at Target.

Catherine said...

I can't believe the nap nanny was recalled! Ugh, all of my girlfriends have one and LOVE it. If I had that polish I would happily send it to you!

If I were you, I would literally call every place that sells Essie until I find it. There are just too many places that sell it and hunting for nail polish and being 9 months preggers just doesn't sound fun. Try Target, Wal-Mart, Walgreens, Ulta... they will understand. :-)

I immediately started searching for Nap Nanny articles when I was mid-post. Yikes. Terrible tragedies, but I agree. I don't know that the product itself can really be blamed since it was used improperly. It's like using a car seat but not buckling it and then suing the car seat company when something goes wrong.

Anyway, I hope your pipes are completely fixed today! Happy weekend, Michelle!

At least the Rock 'n Play sleeper can make up for the nap nanny. You have that, right?

Found the polish!

i too have heard about the nap nanny, but that people were using it improperly and way past the age you were supposed too, and once children start rolling you aren't supposed to use it? correct? I to would understand the reason for recalling it though

Candice Moretti said...

Okay, this whole nap nanny thing has me hostile. It seems every single baby product I have owned has been recalled at one point or another! Makes me angry. Why are people so dumb sometimes. I mean common sense right? I'm keeping mine for #2. I'm confident that I can use it correctly. Meh!
Love the polish, sorry about the toilet. Hope you have a fab weekend! :)

1. Love that color. And I now need it.

2. I read one article, but don't have time to read others right now... how were babies being harmed/dying in it? Were they rolling out of it? I think common sense would say once your baby is old enough to roll over you don't put them in something like that without strapping them in or watching them, no? Maybe that's just me!

Jess @ Blonde Meets World said...

OH. And I just want to rant once more about common sense. I was at the mall the other day and they have these little like firetruck/race-car/carriage type things for parents to push their children in. There's a cheap black bag on the back to hold belongings.... and on it they seriously "DO NOT PUT CHILD IN THIS BAG." Um... WHAT. I say, again, WHAT?!?!?!? The only reason we have these warnings is because someone, at some point, has probably done so!! A third time, WHATTTT?!!?

the girl in the red shoes said...

Stupid people using the nap nanny incorrectly! But girl, you don't need it. I didn't get one and it was fine...try a bouncy seat...it worked for us!

Jenn @ Bliss to Bean said...

OK that nail polish is gorgeous!! I totally missed the boat on the nap nanny...oops?! And the hormones?? :) They are something fierce! I've still found the words to tell the story of the box of sugar cookies that may have ended up at my husband's feet....oopsies. Just a few mere weeks mama!!

ambercease said...

New follower... Love that nail polish! I have a 2 1/2 year old and 8 month old and didn't have a Nap Nanny for either of mine and we survived, haha. And hopefully the rage of those hormones ease up and give you some slack here soon!

Michelle said...

I posted a picture of that nail polish color a few weeks ago! I love it too! I got it on amazon!! :)

Crazy Shenanigans-JMO said...

I just saw that nail polish yesterday! Has anyone got it for you yet? I can go tomorrow and get it and ship it to you if you still need it. Email me and let me know or tweet me (jmomiller).

Bri Buzali said...

Look on Amazon for the polish! I've found so many colors on there that I couldn't find anywhere else! I hope your plumbing situation got fixed, and can't wait to see pics of baby apple!

I will buy your nap nanny from you if you didn't return it!
