We got the above wave print from Ikea. What you can't tell is that it is HUGE. About 79"x55". I kind of had to talk Aaron into it but I know it's going to make him so happy. He's...slightly obsessive about waves (a side effect of being born and raised in Hawaii, I'm sure) and he's going to love having this in our new living room. (I also really want the huge map)
Elaine shared this post about nudes in art from J. Kirk Richards, an LDS artist. Mormons can be so stinking puritanical about modesty that it can be detrimental to our appreciation of the human body as a work of God. I'm kind of thinking I need a nude painting for our house now. If you see a good one, send it my way (relatedly: what makes a nude a good nude?).
Please tell me you are already aware of the illustrated tweet of the day from Hello Giggles. Last week I spent 2 hours laying in bed during my kids' quiet time reading them on my phone. I arose feeling so very understood.
My hair is getting super long. It's below my bra strap in the back. I am absurdly proud of this. It feels like an accomplishment I've been working toward for a long time and maybe there should be an award for it or something.
If you haven't read this post, entitled "The fart that (almost) altered my destiny" then please go read right this very moment. I was laughing so hard that I stopped making sound. And also, tears were streaming down my face. It was ugly, but the post is just. that. funny.
