Top 2 Tuesday: Magazines

It's Tuesdayyyyy! Today at the Undomestic Momma is Top 2 Magazines.
I love magazines. Mr. B and I love to go to the bookstore across the street, plant ourselves in some comfy chairs and read magazines. Are we cool or what? But hey it's a free date! Although I am not sure if that counts as a date since we don't talk to each other for an hour or two, but hey it works for us.

While he reads the boring stuff like Money, Time and ESPN.
I read the important stuff like....

1. Real Simple. Love this magazine. This is filled with great, useful ideas using your every day items that using them in creative/effective new ways. It gives tips on organization, different recipes, good products etc. Great Mag.

2. Any Celeb gossip. I will admit it. Don't judge.Who doesn't like seeing that the celebs are just like US?! They get their own mail, they cut their own food, they fill up their own gas tank, they lick their ice cream cone- wow. No, but really...I enjoy seeing that. That may or may not be why I originally joined Twitter. I follow celebs, pretend they're my friends and I am enlightened on how normal they are in real life.
To top it off I also enjoy watching the celeb gossip shows: TMZ, Extra, ET, Access Hollywood etc. Mr. B so doesn't get it. He is one of the most annoying people to watch any of those shows with. He makes fun of it and shouts out a million "who cares" ummm ME! I want to know their fears about breast feeding with implants. I want to watch the clip of grown up Michelle aka Mary-Kate or Ashley walk across the street. I want to see Carrie Underwoods massive beautiful engagement ring. I want to see Kim Kardashians cellulite. I care.
I also always read Parents and any other pregnant/baby magazines (gotta get ahead of the game) and I enjoy the occasional Shop Smart ;), Glamour and Cosmo-although I am not a huge fan of when they have 19875865 ads and like thismuch good stuff.

What are your favorite mags??

Top 2 Tuesday: Random Things About Yourself

Today's Top 2 over the Undomestic Momma is: Random things about yourself. I hope you will still be my friend....

1. I am SO afraid of caterpillars. Honestly, I don't even want to talk about them. They give me the heebie jeebies...big time. I hate how they are furry, have a million little legs and stick to you. Yuck. Ok I am done, I can't write anymore I already feel them crawling on me. Which could lead to a number 2. I am a hypercondriac, but we will save that for another post and bring you to my real random number two.

2. I had one giant tooth for a good year and a half to two years of my life. Unfortunately it didn't look any better when the second one came in. Maybe even worse, if you can believe that. They were big. They were separated. The other teeth decided to grow behind them instead of next to them. THANK THE LORD FOR MY PARENTS AND BRACES. Can I get an Amen?!

Since the theme is random, I am going to throw in some other random points as well....

1. Did anyone watch DWTS last night? Was Jake not hilarious?!? He was extremely funny looking, but the tux, bow tie and high waters totally fit his personality. I thought he was surprisingly good, but so funny. It makes me laugh when I replay it in my head, they showed Vienna laughing too- how could you not, really?

2. Still on the topic of DWTS, Kate needs to go. She is really just making herself look worse. She was also hilarious last night, but for different reason. She was so bad. She looked like she just wanted to stop the show, run out the back door with tears streaming down her face and curl up in a corner and hide. I don't blame her. Also, if you're arguing with your dance partner and he quits on you too, I think that says a little something about your personality. She really needs to learn how to communicate her feelings more effectively, clearly her current way of dealing with situations doesn't exactly fly with most people. I know she has an unusual/messed up life, but she is starting to bother me because she takes everything so seriously and personal. She needs to have fun, let loose and stop overemphasizing that she's doing everything for her kids.

3. Another DWTS note, because obviously I think I am a professional critique. Nicole from the is this even fair?? She is a dancer! She choreographs. She has workout/dance DVDs. She got two 9s the first week and two 10s the second week- c'mon. I would be so mad if I was another contestant. Last night she said "we even added some PCD moves into this routine"...umm..if you have your own moves I think you're a dancer. Chest pumps and booty dips../you're still a dancer. I think it's funny how a few seasons ago the judges were so mean to Mario Lopez when he was so good and now Nicole is the same way and a dancer and they are treating her so much better. I still love you Mario.

4. Pamela Anderson drives me crazy! Why must everything be so sexual? She can't even stand like a normal person for .1 second, she's all over her partner, she's got her head tilted back, her body constantly moving, she's winking, licking her lips..seriously?! Ew.

5. Thanks for putting up with that vent session. I guess writing it out is just like when I tell Mr. B - I get no response but I continue to talk anyways. Except this time I am hoping for a little response or agreement from you. Please?

6. All of a sudden my name has become so popular. So popular as in I have seen it in 3 shows in the past two weeks. For me, this is a big deal. There is a girl Jordan on Amazing Race, Jordynn on 16 and Pregnant and a woman named Jordan on Castle. I will let the Castle woman pass this time, but I don't know if she really counts because she was a little too old to be named Jordan and that makes it little unbelievable to me. She is just a character, while the others are real girls. I will appreciate the fact that they even made it a girl's name on Castle though. Jordan is making it's way to the girl side - woot. woot.

7. Today is our dating anniversary, after 8 months of us dating in denial, Mr. B asked me to be his girlfriend {at Target-I know, so romantic} and it became "official" 51 months ago.

8. We are flying home to NH this afternoon!! Mr. B has a bunch of interviews over the next 3 days and we are looking at a potential place to live when we move in May. Please pray that the Lord would lead us and open up doors where needed. We are trusting and walking by faith through this whole process, it's not easy, but it will be rewarding. It's a humbling experience- that's for sure! It's also refreshing knowing that God has a plan and a purpose and He will work everything out- even when we don't know anything about what the future holds.

9. Here is a hint to my project. I will post about it tomorrow. You know this is almost as exciting as when MckMama posts a picture and leaves you hanging, don't deny it.

Top 2 Tuesday: Things I can't live without

It's Top 2 Tuesday over at the undomestic momma! Today's topic is two things you can't live without, this excludes the obvious things like Jesus, Mr. B, family, friends and TV.

So here we go, my top two things:
1. iPhone. I can't even imagine having a normal phone any more. Honestly I am not even sure how I could live. Ok, that might be a bit of a stretch. But would be so weird to not be able to go on facebook, twitter, blogs, check my emails, google anything, follow the map when I'm lost, listen to music, watch movies, take pictures, record videos- everything. The real question is- what can't I do with this phone?? A sad, slightly embarrassing fact about me: when I wake up in the middle of the night to check the time I always go on and check fb and twitter too. It's a habit.
Cute little Roxie ( I hope we get new pics soon!!) as my wallpaper, I am aware that the time is an ugly, odd number and yes it is bothering me, I debated whether or not to take another picture, and I am also in love with my phone cover.

2. Fan. It's an inherited trait in the Grace family. I can not sleep without a fan. I can if I absolutely have to, but it takes me for.ever. It normally takes me a long time anyways because my mind never turns off {isn't that so frustrating?? Why is it necessary to replay the entire day and think about the next 50 days?} I hate sleeping in silence. Who am I kidding...there is no silence with Mr. B's snoring, scratching, talking and various mouth noises he does in his sleep, but I can't sleep with that either. I love white noise and the hum of the fan is the perfect sound to drift me off into dreamland.

One day Mama Grace told Papa G to pick up a big fan for the living room because it was a really hot summer day. Well he took her very literal and he came home with this beast. A huge industrial fan that sounded like a plane taking off --wasn't exactly what she had planned for the living room. It was impossible to watch TV and have the fan on at the same time which is clearly a BIG problem. Although this fan was not the right fit for the living room, it is so amazing to sleep with. I think about it all the time, specifically when our current fan fails at completely blocking out the love of my life while he sleeps, therefore results in waking me up. Not a fan. No pun intended. Yeah right... totally intended that pun. Pretty clever if I do say so myself.

What are 2 things you can't live with out??

PS. Just finished Day 6 Level 2!

Favorite Baby Names

Poolside. Sun. Tan. Out to eat. Concert. Strawberry Shortcake. Fried Dough. Sleeping in. Family. Mama Grace.

The past few days have consisted of these marvelous things. Believe it or not, these things take priority over blogging. Not sure how I made it through with all the delicious food, the company, the sun and the perfect glow to my skin, it really was not that hard. I do have many pictures and posts to come. I am sure my leave of absence was noticed by all, you may have had some withdrawals and I send out my deepest apologies, but don't worry Mama Grace leaves early in the morning and with my new job as a housewife I will have plenty of time to embellish on my life that I am sure you are all dying to know about.

Side note: Did anyone see House last night? It was pretty funny, it was about a blogger.

Anyways today over at The Undomestic Momma it's Top 2 Tuesday. This is my first time doing this, how could I resist not joining in on the subject of top baby names?? I have had baby names planned since I was a little girl and I can not wait to one day put a precious little face to these names.

Top Girl Names:
(Most of the names I pick sound beautiful until you put in my last name. Once Smelser is added it just doesn't quite have the same ring to it, hopefully over time I will be able to look past that minor detail. All the girls names I pick have Grace as the middle name because it's my maiden name, I love it, I miss it and I haven't thought of any other middle names yet. It's on my list of things to do and will be taken care of in these days of unemployment.)

I am in love with Layla Grace. This is my number one girl name right now, I fell in love with this name when I heard of this little angel. At such a young age she has touched so many lives. She passed away this morning, please keep her family in your prayers through this difficult time.

Also love Ella Grace. When Smelser is added, my parents were quick to inform me that her nickname may be "Ella Smella", it's okay, that's cute too?

I have also always loved Ryleigh Grace

Top Boy Names:

Andrew James

Owen Michael

Jackson Brady

Time will tell if Mr. B and I will have enough babies for these names. A girl can hope :)
