“Pushing” Presents

Wearing: Dress-Gap Camo Ruffle Maxi Dress, Shoes-Nine West Jaxon, Cardigan-J.Crew Jackie, Necklace- Anthropologie, Earrings-Anthropologie Occluded Hoops

You want to know what totally rocks?  I had my eye on this Gap dress online and then didn’t bite.  Went into the Gap 2 weeks ago and found one in a size Small on sale for $44.00.  The kicker was that Gap was having an extra 40 percent off all sale items, expiring that very day.  So I bought this baby for $26.00.  Awwww yeah.  The hues in this dress make me oh-so-soft and gushy inside.  I just love the way they play off each other.  I think the name was all sorts of wrong on this dress though.  Camo Ruffle?  Sight unseen, I never would have even clicked on a link that had that name.  I REALLY dislike camo printed anything.  I see way to much of it around these parts, and it usually means time away from family.  So I prefer to steer clear of anything camo.  However, I am ever so glad I didn’t know the name of this lovely before seeing it, so I could buy it without name prejudice.

So, I’m not sure if you’re all aware or not, but Rachel Zoe gave birth a few months ago to a little boy named Skyler Morrison.  Rachel Zoe. Gave. Birth.  I have to wonder, how did she even get pregnant?  I didn’t think you even could get pregnant with a negative amount of body fat?  BANANAS, right?!  (Sorry, I couldn’t resist. )  In any case, were you also aware of the fact that her hubs Rodger gave her a “pushing” present?  Oh, you know, something little…..like a 10-carat cushion cut Neil Lane sparkler for her right hand.  It was no biggie.  What’s a few million when we’re talking about pushing a 7 – 10 lb. honey-baked ham out your Virginia?!?

I have already seen the likes of pushing out 3 human beings from my own nethers, and perhaps MacGyver never got the memo…..but I never received a “push” present from him, or any one else for that matter.  What the?!   Do I feel gipped?  Yes and no.  I got exactly what I wanted…3 healthy, fat, squishy babies with 10 fingers and 10 toes.  However, had I known I could have planted a seed long ago….suggesting that a “push” present would be quite excellent of him….I totally would have.  Therefore, this time around, I have decided MacGyver needs some nudging in the right direction.  This is our 4th and final….and I swear, if this kid crosses the 9 lb. threshold, I think a sparkler is dang well in order.  Don’t you?!  (my other boy hit right at 9 lbs.  Did I mention MacGyver’s genes also bring large heads to the table? Oi.  Double Oi.)

So, here we go.
