Oh so many of these are just so true - the ugly truth! I can so relate to sleeping in until 9, cabernet over tequila and high heels KILL me! Thanks for the laugh:-)

Tamara Camera said...

Absolutely! Although spanx were a disaster for me, which seems totally unfair.

Leslie said...

Ha! Definitely true…all of it. I still remember being SO disappointed at Christmas when Popples were so popular. My parents couldn’t find one at all and that was my number one item. Ah, the days before the internet…when children had to learn to deal with disappointment!

DEFINITELY can relate to a bunch of these, and that is pre-kids! Give me a few months, and I'll be adding a few more of these to my list.
