This Is My Confession.

Just when I thought I said all I could say my chick on the side said she's got one on the way.

Okay. No, I'm not pregnant. Tommy has said that for as long as I think "crotch parasite" is hysterical, we aren't allowed to have them. But dear lord, if you haven't added that blog to your list, you should. She makes me laugh so I hard I cry almost everyday.

But in bigger news, I have finally accepted the fact that hot pink is my favorite color.

I know. I know. Who knew?

I mean, I knew I liked to purchase hot pink things, but I always said that it was just because they went with everything (what?!?). I never considered the fact that hot pink might have an edge over brown, or, heaven forbid, gold.

But if I take a moment to really think about it, I own next to zero brown clothes and about eleventy billion hot pink things.

I have a hot pink coat. A hot pink water bottle. I only eat hot pink gum. I'm wearing a hot pink shirt right now. A hot pink gym bag. A hot pink bike. I look like a freaking zit when I leave work wearing my hot pink shirt and coat, my hot pink gym bag, and carrying my hot pink water bottle and my brand-spanking-new hot pink clutch (read: purse/wallet for the men in the room).

It was the purse that put me over the edge and made me realize what a lie I have been living. Paige got one of these semi-recently and I have secretly coveted it ever since. When we were on vacation my coveting-ness grew to proportions so great, that I could wait no longer. To Nordstrom I went.

They had quite an array of colors over which I deliberated for a solid 20 minutes. I finally gave in when I realized that no matter what, I knew I was going to buy the hot pink one...even though my self-respect could get no lower.

So, my fabulous new clutch and I are starting a new life together. Hand in hand.

Hot pink is the new brown.

Nice. I love my hot pink clutch. Now if you, me, and Kenzie get together we'll probably swap identities.

If you, me and Kenzie get together I will probably just kidnap her and make her come be my pet. Clutch and all.

Mine is patent leather...so it's at least a little different??

Maybe you could finish that painting for Cathy but redo all of the colors to be shades of hot pink? Now that could inspire you...I wonder if she likes hot pink too?

Finish that painting for Cathy. Ha. Hahahaha. It's not happening.
