A few things

*Little Pit turns 2 a week from today. How on earth do I have a 2 year old? When did this happen?

*One of my best friends and bridesmaids got engaged last weekend. I am so incredibly happy for her and I adore her fiance. They are planning a September wedding and I am excited for what's going to be an incredible celebration. I also love that it's not a super long engagement, and I love weddings so I get 2 in one year! (That's of course if the new baby doesn't come early!)

*I have heard some doozies of incorrect words this past week (I used to hear a lot when I worked in an office, but holy cow...these are good). Summarization- It's a SUMMARY people. There is no such thing as a summarization. It's not entirely WRONG, but why add more syllables when you don't have to? Irregardless. This is just wrong. It even shows up as incorrect in my spellcheck. You give regards. Or you don't, so it's regardLESS. IRregardLESS is a double negative. Plus, you sound like an idiot when you say it. Last but certainly not least...Orientate. Again, NOT a word. You ORIENT yourself to your surroundings. Another example of adding a pointless and incorrect syllables.

*I know tennis season has officially started since I lost part of my big toe nail yesterday. I wasn't even on the roster (and we won!) and I still managed to do some serious toe damage while running errands. It happens every season, just usually not so early. OY.

*Oxy Clean Max Gel Stick is my new best friend. In the past week it has gotten out dirt, grass, blood, ketchup, ranch dressing and anything else you can imagine an almost 2 year old has gotten into. Go out and buy yourself a stick. It's amazing on stains.

*I read somewhere that it was 'against the law' for a blogger to write about a product and not state if they were compensated. How one earth is that a law? And if it is, who on earth is going to prosecute you? Your readers? Your state? Who is working for the state or anyone else that would verify if you were compensated or not? I personally couldn't care less if you were compensated for a post or not. If you say you like a product and want to devote a whole post to it, more power to you. If I buy said product and don't like it, I can't blame you can I? I mean, I'm a smart person, college educated and everything...I don't just go out and blindly buy things because I read that other people are using did this get to be a law? Who is being negatively effected by bloggers not revealing they are compensated? Sounds to me like people have WAY too much time on their hands.

*Speaking of time, Little Pit and I are off to Gymboree and then the park this afternoon.

Have a great day!

xoxo Mrs. Pit

I hear you on the TWO year olds!!!! I cannot believe that he is soooo big and sooo old. Yikes.

Irregardless drives B insane. Truly. Almost as much as the incorrect use of appostrophes (happens ALL the time). You and he could sit down and write a book on the subject!

Have a great weekend! Hope you are feeling well!
