I'm really over pinterest and being pinteresty. Like, I just don't give a shiiiiiiiiit. (Imagine me saying this like Kenny Fisher from Can't Hardly Wait). I didn't really realize it until Wednesday night when Chris, Georgia, and I were carving pumpkins.
We were sitting on the living room floor with...pumpkins and a tool kit. No Halloween decorations in sight, no whimsical table cloth, no strategically arranged photo of my candy corn colored nails holding the carving knife ( my nails are not candy corn colored, but if I wanted a styled pumpkin carving shoot, they damn well would be!) No Halloween pajamas, no pumpkin spice anything anywhere. I looked around and thought, "Damn, this feels GREAT! I DON'T GIVE A FUCKING SHIT! THERE ISN'T EVEN NEWSPAPER ON THE FLOOR! WOO-HOO!"
I tried very hard when Georgia was a baby. I had an adorable first birthday party with lots of DEEEETAILS and a theme, second birthday same thing, my bathroom makeover was a pinterestpalooza of epic magnitudes, I tried to dress my kid like she was stepping out of a magazine every day and I tried to keep my house styled all Anthropologie like...you get the picture.
It was too exhausting for me. Especially after June was born. It IS too exhausting for me. I mean, my house is clean and I'm not sitting on my couch crapping in my sweatpants or anything, but we are going to be very poor this year because of paying for childcare for 2 children and I just can't care about buying the latest fashions for them, mostly because Georgia doesn't care what the hell she is wearing as long as it has pink in it, and June is a baby who shits and spits up all over everything so, yeah. No fancy clothes in this house. My neighbor gave me a HUGE bag of clothes for free that were Georgia's size so I'm like sorry kid, you are going to have to wear this used Barbie Rodeo sweatshirt.
Of course for holidays and such I will splurge, but you will probably never see them because I can't get up the energy to take a picture of anything these days except for June in a laundry basket playing with socks,because that is way more adorable than her sitting all uncomfortable in a dress with a big bow. I didn't take one picture at Chris's 40th surprise birthday party, I took one picture during my first trip to Los Angeles, it's too mentally exhausting to look like I am awesome all the time. Not that I really try to do that, but you know when you take a picture you want it to be good and I just don't feel like it. Dagnabbit.
So anyway, here is my pumpkin carving photo. Just kidding, I don't have one. Here is a picture of my kids wearing used clothes sitting in a laundry basket full of mismatched socks!
