The Three Stages of Mardi Gras, Told with Funny Cat Memes

The Three Stages of Mardi Gras, as Told by Funny Cats


Hello Friday, and hello friend! 

Today's #FridayFrivolity theme is "Mardi Gras Madness."  Since basically everything is funnier when told by LOLcatz, here is my interpretation of the three stages of Mardi Gras told by funny kittehs. 😼

Stage Three:

For my non-religious readers out there who just know Mardi Gras for beads, the "ash" part refers to the fact that technically Mardi Gras is the day before Ash Wednesday, a Christian holiday that marks the beginning of Lent... a season of focused reflection that ends with the joy and celebration of Easter. 

You'll thank me for telling you that when you're on Jeopardy some day!!  😜

4 Reasons Why I Bought Matching Hangers After All - Organizing Your Minimalist Capsule Wardrobe

4 Reasons Why I Bought Matching Hangers After All - Organizing Your Minimalist Capsule Wardrobe



4 Reasons Why I Bought Matching Hangers After All -- tips for organizing your closet and wrapping up your minimalist capsule wardrobe!  Are matching hangers really helpful?  Advice for making this small organizational touch actually useful! via Devastate Boredom

-

In one of my earlier posts, I spoke mockingly of how a lot of Pinterest pins will try to make you think that buying matching hangers is some kind of magic panacea to the horrors of a cluttered closet... and of course I think that's just silly!  

Let's just be clear real quick -- if you are frustrated with a cluttered closet, it's going to take more than matching hangers to get you organized.  Discovering the Secrets of a Capsule Wardrobe is a great place to start (😏 ) and from there you'll want to eliminate redundant items in your closet by figuring out which ones are your favorite pieces, and which ones are things you purchased because they REMINDED you of your favorite shirt / dress / scarf.  Balance those bases and start expanding your collection of silhouettes, and you'll find your closet can contain FEWER items while mixing-and-matching into even more cute outfits than before!

But back to the hangers... once I had established my minimalist Capsule Wardrobe, I found myself pondering that whole matching hanger thing again.  I know, I know!  After I had made fun of it to the internetz and everything!

Caption This!  Funny Dog Photo -- #FridayFrivolity 


Hello Friday, and hello Friends!  This week's theme is funny dogs, in honor of the recent Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, and I've got something a little bit different than usual.... a "caption this!" type photo of my own two adorable puppies!

The timing on this photo just seemed priceless... so, let's caption it!  

Here's the most obvious option:

But I'm sure y'all can be more creative than that! 😜  Leave me a comment with your interpretation...  If we get enough funny captions, I'll do a post highlighting them!

Hello Friday, and Hello friends!  

This week is all things love and romance and red and pink at the #FridayFrivolity link-up... but rather than a funny post, I decided to put a little different spin on it.


There is a lot of uncertainty and negativity bouncing around our country and world at the moment, and I think it would be kind of nice to balance it out, in some tiny way, with a little deliberate thoughtfulness.  :)

Let's start a Spread Some Love Valentines' Day movement this year, with thoughtful notes and sweet greetings for folks we care about!

Is it really that big a deal to soap up your legs with shaving cream or conditioner (yes, that is a life-hack that totally works!) before shaving?  No, it's 100% not a big deal.  It takes, like, eight seconds, right?  

But somehow the combination of winter and pregnancy had been making it very, very, ridiculously unlikely that I would ever shave my legs again until the baby's debut in April / May.  And not only did I suspect that my husband would be less-than-enthusiastic about my Sasquatch legs, I myself was also rather unhappy with the prospect.*  However, I was also too lazy / pregnancy-clumsy to bother to soap up my legs and proceed with shaving as usual.  

Are you thinking, "#FirstWorldProblems, cry me a river"?  Well, on the one hand, that's completely valid... but on the other hand, you HUSH, this is MY blog post and I'm PREGNANT...  ;P

A while back I noticed a nifty feature on one of the aggregate sites I use to discover / collect style finds and deals to share with you, my lovely readers... the site reports which clothing picks are most clicked after I post them!  

Personally I get a huge kick out of seeing what styles people were most intrigued by, so I'll be doing a periodic "Readers' Choice Awards" going forward, so that all of us can admire the different trending styles among Devastate-Boredom-reading fashionistas.  They include some pretty wide-ranging looks too!  

I've gotta say, I LOVE how y'all ladies rock your personal styles!

Check it out!

Groundhog Day Sillies - #FridayFrivolity

Groundhog Day Sillies - #FridayFrivolity 


Hello Friday, and hello friends!  Holy moly, my weeks are just FLYING by lately... I can't believe it's Friday already, but I'm really glad to see y'all! 😉

Our winter season in North Carolina so far has been alllllll over the map, so I half think the groundhog is going to be seeing a pink elephant this year instead of his shadow... 'cuz why not??  

I ended up buying some short sleeve maternity tops the other day, because I was dying in my sweaters!

Anyway, the warm weather is nice, but also terrifying... *coughglobalwarmingcough*

Oh well... join me for some groundhog themed funnies!  

First up, did you hear the verdict?

Funny and Horrible Mom Advice! - #FridayFrivolity

Funny and Horrible Mom Advice! #FridayFrivolity


Hello Friday, and hello friends!

The theme at this week's #FridayFrivolity is another that I feel a little unqualified to speak to at this moment in time... "Horrible New Mom Advice."  Not being a mom yet, I'm honestly not sure what is good versus bad advice... and (fortunately for my sanity, rofl) I really haven't gotten much advice yet at all.  

So rather than try to guess what advice might be Bad Advice, I'm going to just give you one recommendation that I think is quite sound, both from a practical and a scientific-child-brain-development perspective...

Hilarious and horrible new mom advice, plus a funny "don't text and mommy" meme! via Devastate Boredom

...or, buy strollers with extra crash protection in the head-region.  I guess that would work too. 😜

Check out my other cohosts at Syncopated Mama, Munofore, and Babi a Fi for all kinds of funny and horrible new mom advice.... And if you have any advice that I will probably hear as a new mom and that I definitely should NOT listen to, let me know in the comments. 😉

Random Funny Baby GIFS and Memes to Make You Laugh - #FridayFrivolity

Random Funny Baby GIFS and Memes to Make You Laugh -  #FridayFrivolity


Hello Friday, and hello Friends!  Celebrating my exciting news from a couple of weeks ago, the other #FridayFrivolity hosts thought it would be fun to do baby-related themes for a while... I swear, it was their idea!  They are awesome pals and I appreciate that they are so excited with me. 😃  Our theme for this week -- hilariously useless baby items -- is a little tricky for me though, because honestly how can I know what will be useful or not at this point??  I'm looking forward to garnering useful knowledge from my cohosts' posts, however, and in the meantime, here are some random funny baby gifs, memes, and videos! 😜

She's pretty sure these cookies are delicious... if only she could figure out how to pick them up...

Funny Pregnancy Memes - What NOT to Say to a Pregnant Woman!


Hello Friday, and hello friends!

Celebrating my fun news from last week (which none of y'all had ANY inkling of while I showed you my completely non-obvious holiday photos, right?) our #FridayFrivolity themes this month may have gone a little baby crazy... hopefully in a fun way!  Our theme for today's party is "What NOT to say to a pregnant woman."  


What NOT to say to a pregnant woman!


According to the interwebz, the #1 most important thing not to say to a pregnant woman is "are you pregnant?"  But I think that is mostly because... what if the answer is no??  Emotional fallout for EVERYBODY involved, oops...
