Welcome to TINI FRIDAY! If you’re new here, my husband makes the best martinis and on Friday nights, we drink ’em! It’s our time to reconnect and RELAX, and at some point during the night I usually secretly record him on a rant about something. It’s always a good time.
A few things you should know if you’re new to Tini Friday… Lane (my husband) makes really
good strong martinis. I only crossed out “good” for humor purposes because they are actually delicious. He has a tendency to fill your glass back up when you’re about half way done, so you’re never really sure how much you’ve had until it’s too late. These nights are our time to reconnect, put the pause on chores and bills and diapers, and talk about WHATEVER. Usually at some point in our conversation, Lane slips a little deeper into his sexy Southern gentleman accent and gets on a rant about something. That’s when I start secretly recording. I’ve done this so many times that you would think he’d suspect it at some point, but he honestly never knows until I hit the “end” button on my phone when his rant is over. And usually then he goes “awwwww maaaan.”VIEW POST
I have this gigantic piece of… we’ll call it “art.” I bought it when I was fresh out of college and at a fairly depressing time in my life. I remember standing in TJ Maxx staring at this thing and thinking “I really like that and I want it but I don’t have $100 to buy it, but I’m going to buy it anyway because maybe it will make me happy for thirty minutes.” And it did. But the second I got it back to my crappy apartment the honeymoon was over.
Before we get to the story of this epic mantel, I have to tell you that today is a big day. I’m happy to report that we survived Hurricane Hermine and I didn’t even have to bust into my Hurricane Kit. Also, it is Tini Friday and the one month anniversary of JSH Blog! I’ve been blown away by the love you guys have shown and I’m so excited to keep it going! To think that even one person would spend their time reading what I have to say just rocks my world, so the fact that 544 of you are reading this insanity in only thirty days is just staggering to me. Thank you sincerely for validating my form of cheap therapy. I hope that it makes you laugh or teaches you something, and I hope that you’ll share this blog with anyone who would like it. Or any Super Speeders. Or anyone with Momxiety.
Today as my way to say a big THANK YOU, I have a most hilarious and special treat for you… a secret recording of last week’s Tini night conversation about how we hung the 3,000 pound mantle at our old house.VIEW POST
Guys it’s ‘Tini Friday Eve and I am so pumped. This has been a long week. It started with the super speeder ticket – which ONLY cost $325 btw!!! I feel like I made $200! – and it’s been a little grueling since then. Point being, I’m ready for a signature Lane Jones dirty martini. It’s not even so much about the ‘tinis, but the fact that Lane and I just plan on this evening each week to shut the rest of all the garbage out and chilllll. We talk and laugh and solve the problems of the world and reconnect. It’s just fun and usually much needed. It’s so easy to get caught up in the day to day craziness that sometimes it can feel like after we put Lila to bed, Friday night is the first time we really even look at each other all week.VIEW POST
Happy Weekend people!! I sit here feeling gluttonous and gross because, you guessed it, I finally got my Taco Bell fix. Never in the history of my life have I eaten Taco Bell for lunch, but as we all know, there isn’t a cheesy core burrito to be found once I make it out to Suburbialand, so today I went for it.
