have you ever?

Time for another round of "have you ever?" with Ana as your host.
Hit it.

Have you ever?

- made the executive decision to sit on the couch, blog and eat most of the bag of Skinny Sticks, rendering them thoroughly un-skinny, while watching Parks and Rec instead of working out?

- have you done so multiple nights in a row?

- thrown the large pot into the dishwasher in the morning even though you know it needs to be hand washed but you just don't feel like it and want it out of your sight?

- neglected to do your Jesse Tree so many days (weeks?) in a row that in the end you just threw roughly 15 ornaments on it in one day with the shortest most confusing explanations of all the stories, in an attempt to not feel like the worst advent celebrator in the world?

- bribed your children with Harry and David chocolates and the Grinch in order to have 25 minutes of total peace and quiet?

- strapped the 1-year-old into the high chair with said chocolates in front of said movie to really have 25 minutes of peace and quiet?

- done both of the above multiple days in a row?

- ignored an escalating fight between your elder kids for an extended period of time, through many loud bangs, much wailing and gnashing of teeth, and possible injuries because sitting and building blocks for Lucy to tear down is much more preferable to entering the smoldering hot miniature planet of emotions in the other room?

- busted out the Nutella because the iced animal crackers just weren't cutting it on their own?

Me neither.


  1. Haha, I've so been there! I have to hide the not-supposed-to-be-in-the-dishwasher pots from my husband as he's quick to remind me they're supposed to be hand washed but I was just too tired to do it, lol!

  2. I'll see your skinny sticks and raise you THE ENTIRE BOX OF CHOCOLATES THAT GRANDMA SENT.

  3. We've all been there at some point.

  4. Yes to the last for sure! Really what I'm hearing is that you have had Harry and David chocolates at your disposal for multiple days in a row...if that's not a testament to your self control, I don't know what is. ;)

  5. I think you practically just wrote my next post for neither..:

  6. Ana- your blog is my fave EVER! Nutella and iced animal crackers- YES and YES

  7. A run on potato chips over here because I made the mistake of making homemade ranch dip, and really, the chips are just a vehicle for snarfing the dip. I credit pre-Christmas stress.
