Friday Wrapup

Let's get to it!


This week's books is "Big Magic" by Elizabeth Gilbert. You guys, I kept my promise to post -  for once! Click here to check it out!


Last night, as CB was getting into bed, he grabbed the back scratcher and started going at it.

Me: "You have an itch?"
CB: "Yeah, just dry skin."
Me: "Did you put lotion on it?"
CB: "No."
Me: "Do you want me to put lotion on it?"
CB: "No, then I'll have lotion on my back."
Me, staring at him: "Right. So your back wouldn't itch anymore."
CB: "Yeah, but then it'd just be on my back."
Me: "How much lotion are you putting on? Too much if you still feel it once you RUB IT IN."
CB, laughing: "I don't want to feel the lotion on my skin."
Me: "That makes zero sense. That's like saying 'I'd take a shower, but I don't want to feel the water.' The water eventually drys or absorbs into your skin. Just like lotion."
CB: "Are you done?"
Me: "I'll never be done."
CB, rolling over: "This I know." 


And now, the Video of the Week! I made CB a sappy Valentine's Day gift that incorporated this song, so obviously it reminds me of him, and since I have been giving him a hard time all week/life, I thought I'd dedicate it to him so that when he brings up how I brought up our lotion conversation later I can be like "Right, but then immediately afterwards, I dedicated a song to you."

This is how you do marriage, people.

Happy Friday!


  1. Am I the only creepy one who is getting a total Silence of the Lambs reference when talking about putting the lotion on the skin? On a totally unrelated note, happy to see the new book review. I am going to read it this weekend! Thanks!

    1. Hahahaha oh my God that's funny, never occurred to me!
      Let me know how you like the book!

    2. First thing I thought of too.Silence of the Lambs freaked me out and ESPECIALLY the part with the guy with the lotion. I'm going to have nightmares. Somehow this is CB's fault!
