- One week from today Lover fo’ Life leaves for a 2, possibly 3 week business trip to Brazil.
- Exactly 10 days from now, I’ll be sitting in a Title Company conference room signing away our lives as I close on our house.
- In Exactly 2 weeks I’ll be swimming morning laps in my brand new backyard oasis.
All that stands in my way is everything. I’ve got a sh*t ton of work ahead of me Y’all.
As I type this, I’m in my office which because we live in the same “cozy” AKA tiny starter house we bought 8 years ago, it’s piled with Angry Baby’s gear. Toys, crayons, clothes you name it, this mess has it all. I’m not some nutjob hoarder, but real talk: Angry Baby’s closet is stacked from floor to ceiling (nutjob hoarder style.) To clean, disassemble and pack my office, is going to require your beloved Crib Keeper, tap into my manual labor bustin’ alter ego, Toily. Peace out until later today.
Don’t worry Babies, Mad Dad’s got a hilarious post about disgusting fruit on the way.
Today is Tues-the-Extreme Day, the day of the week you and I devote to BEING EXTREME! And what better way to honor the Patron Saint of Tues-the-Extreme Day Vanilla Ice, than by rolling up our sleeves, and WORKIN’ IT!
True Story: This past weekend, I ate air popped popcorn (slathered in butter) and watched a re-run marathon of the DIY (do it yourself network) hit show, “The Vanilla Ice Project.” As I watched Rob Van Winkle’s crew demolish and rebuild his “investment house” project by project, I told my Twinkie wrappers “I really need to be packing.” But I didn’t.
Nope. Instead I watched Vanilla Ice reclaim a south Florida abandoned mansion and turn it into an estate(!) Did I mention I’d already seen these episodes when they aired last year? Yes, I may have foolishly squandered an afternoon, but Vanilla (as he always does) inspires me to work hard today.
I’m “demo-ing” Angry Baby’s personal fortress of solitude. Clothes will be donated, useless items tossed and moving boxes will be filled. I’m packing my house one inadequate space at a time, and today I conquer my not-so secret anymore nutjob hoarder closet of shame. WORK IT GURL!
In the spirit of WORKIN’ IT…I’d thought I would share an exquisite collection of Glamour Shots courtesy of our friends at Buzzfeed. Because let’s face it, Glamour Shots taught womankind how to WERK!
For all of you too busy to click and scroll through all the vintage lovelies, I’ve taken the liberty of posting my faves from the set below, ENJOY!
And my personal favorite of the series. Though I’ll admit, the urge to Photoshop in a dong is strong with this one…
But really, you should click on over and see the entire, VAST collection of BEAUTIFUL Vixens, tarted up and ready to give you all the motivation to go DO WORK, sorry WERK!
See you after qwittin’ time!
