Total Randomness


Happy Monday and HAPPY RED CUP SEASON! The holidays are here, whaaaat. I can't even believe it. But seriously, how awesome are Starbucks' cups this year? I love that they're created by customers (see this video) - I think it makes them even better. They had me a little worried with the green cups over the past couple of weeks, they're just not the same. Have you guys started your holiday shopping yet? I have not. Haven't even thought about it, but since our neighbors put up their Christmas lights this weekend, I'm starting to feel the pressure. I want to put together some gift guides for the blog, so let me know what you'd like to see! In laws gifts? Mens gifts (because they're the hardest)? Under $25 ideas?

On the other hand, I have been doing some shopping for myself haha. The Sephora sale is just too good you guys! I went a little crazy on Friday with my online order, but this stuff never goes on sale so it's best to stock up when you get the chance (or that's how I'm rationalizing it). I'm super excited for this Caudalie serum that's supposed to help with dark spots and overall skin tone, and we all know Gal Meets Glam right? She has the best hair ever and just recently said she swears by this hair oil and this hair mask. So you better believe I threw those boys in my cart as quickly as I could! I also had to get this luminizer that they supposedly use on the J. Crew models. I'll report back on everything for sure.


We had a good weekend, although we didn't do much worth reporting. Except for a little call to Poison Control and having to air our house out at 9pm on a Saturday night... yeah. We FINALLY finished up our wallpaper powder room that we started right before Hadley was born (probably not the best time to start a bathroom reno, but girlfriend was 9 days late and we needed something to keep us occupied). Anyway, Nick was painting in the bathroom and spilled some paint on the floor, so he used turpentine to clean it off. Well holy crap does that stuff smell. Our entire house immediately started to wreak, so we took the baby upstairs and hung out with her up there while we opened the windows downstairs to air things out.

Fast forward a couple hours and the smell was just getting worse upstairs. I was putting Hads to bed and noticed that I was getting a headache and just didn't feel that great. If I was starting to feel sick from the fumes, I felt super worried about how she was feeling. We called the pediatrician's after hours office and they advised that we call Poison Control which cue, made me feel like the worst mom e-v-e-r. Thankfully they said that it couldn't cause any damage to her, but that it would be best if she got out of the house for a little bit. So here we were at 9pm, I was driving her around all over town while she's passed out and Nick was opening every window and turning on every fan to get the smell out of the house. Such an ordeal. But by the time we got home an hour later, it was totally gone and she went to bed just fine! Lesson learned: next time get the baby out of the house as soon as any cleaning fumes are used, do not wait until bed time.

Alright, so if you made it through that story, I have a gift for you... a giveaway! $300 to Amazon to celebrate Home of Malones blogiversary! Talk about perfect timing with the holidays coming up.

  2. Somehow almost all of our Christmas shopping is done! We put a $20 limit on everyone's gifts besides each others. We got most of the gifts off of Zulily and they are almost all delivered. So glad everything is ok with everyone after that poison control scare!

  3. Oh wow! You certainly had an eventful night, but I'm glad that it all turned out ok! I haven't started Christmas shopping yet this year, but it's a little easier for me this year since MG and I are going on our baby moon right around Christmas and decided that this would be our gift to one another which I'm fine with. Now we just have to figure out the rest of the family :)

  7. Oh man, that sounds like something we would totally do and then start freaking out about. At least everything is well and over, right?! I am starting to feel the pressure to get all the things done for the holidays too. Especially since I am about to have a huge distraction! Looks like you scored some major awesomeness at the Sephora sale. Can't wait to hear what you thought since I haven't tried most of that stuff. You should totally do all those gift guides! Gift guides are the best. Happy Monday.

  10. I'd love a under $25 gift idea post.
    Those red cups are my favorite. I love they let people design them. I think that should be an annual thing.

  25. Glad that the fumes finely settled down. When Ben was less than a week old my parents were in town visiting. My Dad swore he smelled gas from what he thought was a gas leak. We had to take Ben out (down the road to a local park) while they had the gas company come out. It turned out to be nothing, but we still laugh about it till this day!

  26. Girl, don't feel bad! Stuff happens! Glad y'all got the fumes out, though!
