Monday Musings

You notice how no one ever sings {happy} songs about Monday?  I mean, sure, there's Manic Monday but I mean that is just an ode to the crazies that are Mondays.   There's no "It's Monday, Monday gotta get down on Monday" song, that I know of anyway.  You know why that is?  No one looks forward to Mondays.  They mean the fun is over and it's time to get back to the grind {whatever that may mean for you}.  I don't even like to blog on Sunday night because I don't even like to think about the day to come.  With that being said, here is a post I scheduled on Sunday night highlighting some of the weekend happenings.
  • BIG NEWS!  I got a new car!  My lease was coming up on the Mazda and we figured we could probably cash in on some good "end of year" sales, and boy did we ever!  I am happy to say that I am now the proud new owner of a 2012 {it's still 2011 if you were wondering} Chevy Equinox.
We love it!  It's AWD {which is going to be so nice this winter}, has On Star, XM radio, the hands-free phone system and WAY more room than we had previously.  Silver wasn't my first choice but it's going to hide the dirt {and snow} a lot better than, say, black would.  Needless to say, I'm in love.
  • Also, on Saturday {busy day}, we went to a wedding for some of Jimmy's good high school friends.  Let me just say how much I love going to weddings {really any excuse to get out with my main squeeze for some adult time}.  It was good to catch up with a lot of J's old friends too, miss them.
  • Sunday we ventured out to see Santa, what a fail that was!  We got to the mall and the line was literally wrapped around, no gracias.  I'm not sure how long people were waiting in line but my guess would have been at least an hour.  Sorry Jim-bo, me and KP will go back Friday morning when {hopefully} no one is there.
  • Speaking of which, on our way home {and every day for that matter} Kendall took her socks and shoes off and fell asleep.  I swear that girl cannot leave them on in the car for 2 seconds.  So much so that anymore I don't even put them on her till we arrive at our destination.  Case & point.
Also, can we please take not of where the socks actually are.  Cup holder anyone?  Silly girl.
  • And, remember that cleaning lady I put on my Christmas list?  Well Santa came early.  And she even does the laundry.
I kid, I kid.  Kendall has been quite the little helper as of late and I must say her favorite "chore" is laundry.  She knows how to open the dryer door and will take each and every piece out and place it in the basket {and then back in the dryer, and then back in the basket}.
  • My mother in law posted this picture on Facebook over the weekend and I think it's hilarious.
It's an outtake from our Dew Family Christmas Card photo {more on that later}.  Kendall is such a goof ball, Jimmy looks like a mountain man meets lumberjack and me, well I look like I have to pee {why am I standing with my legs like that?}.  People were commenting how it was a "great family picture" and I just kept laughing because, to me, that's hardly frame worthy.  

So I hope everyone had a great weekend, I know I did!  Now let's work on a perky Monday song, shall we?



  1. Congrats on the new car!! I like the way Jimmy is holding Kendall in the family pic....that may be my favorite part. Ha!

    Good luck with Santa...maybe Kendall won't think he is scary like G did!

  2. I am so excited for you and your new rizzide!!!

    And your Christmas photo is hilarious!

    Miss your face girlfriend.

  3. The picture is hilarious - you do look like you have to pee!! Too funny!!

    Congrats on the car!

  4. I have some laundry to put away if KP is so inclined. And she can totally do my towels anytime she wants.

    Love the new car, too, but you knew that thanks to heyTell, which thanks to you is my new addiction.

  5. Love love love the new car! And seriously, J will not keep his socks on in the car either! I don't know what it is, but as soon as his tush hits the carseat he starts taking them off. Oh well, at least we can say we tried, right?

  6. Yay for you new Equinox!!! You will LOVE it! We love ours. :)

  7. Her socks in the cup holder? Dying over here. KP is so funny!!

    Love the new car..I had a silver car for years and it hides dirt/snow very well! Especially when you are like me and rarely go to the car wash!

  8. Congrats on the new car! We just got an SUV a couple of months ago and I'm seriously in love.

  9. So jealous of the new car! Very happy for you, though. And you scored majority on the cleaning lady!

  10. At first I thought, what a cute family picture, and then when I read why you didn't like it, I was laughing so hard!

    You have the prettiest smile! :)

  11. I so thought "aw, great fam picture" too. but the peeing comment? DY-ING.

  12. My Tommy likes to help with throwing the laundry into the washer and pushing it into the dryer for me. Sometimes he ends up with a bra on his's like he knows it's going to be funny, and it always is...boys! Congrats on the new car! Anything with a little shimmer hides the dirt great!!!

  13. Nice new wheels!
    She looks too cute 'doing the laundry'. Do I need to have a baby to get my laundry done...haha...I'll tell the hubs that we need to get on it : )

  14. I literally just laughed out loud when I read the part about how you look like you have to pee. You really do look like you are clenching your kegals like your about to piss your pants. That's hilarious! And KP, well...enough said. And J looks like he just got out of the mountains. But, cute pic nonetheless!!

  15. Our family pic has an out of control toddler and a man that refused to take off his hat as well. Except the lady in yours is way skinnier and hotter ;)

    yay for the new ride!!!

  16. LOL @ looking like you have to pee. I wouldn't have noticed if you didn't point it out. You have such a pretty smile!

    Yay for new cars! :) Someday I hope to have a bigger vehicle, but alas, we are still paying on my at the time brand new 2008 Sentra...sooo...not for a while.

  17. Love the family pic!

    And I Love the new car. I have a Chevy Traverse and I L.O.V.E. it so much!!

  18. Congratulations on the new car. I have a 2009 Equinox and love it soooo much. Hope you enjoy yours too.

  19. LOVE your new ride! And your blog. I love all your post I read : )
