February Top Ten

by Kim on February 28, 2013

It’s that time again!

Here’s this month’s top ten <shockingly random> things I stumbled upon through my interweb browsings…

1. Top Way to Embarrass Your Second Grader

The Easter egg carton lunch! Enjoy your 5 grapes, son!

Aw, Maaaa…you REALLY had to divide my peanut butter sandwich into 6 bite-sized pieces just so you could jam them into separate plastic eggs? The kids are gonna massacre me!

2. Top Cupcake: “Most Depressing” Category

There are literally grey clouds descending on this dessert.

I just can’t figure out what event this is appropriate for…

3. Top Bucket List Item for Crazy People


Look at them, with their hands all in their pockets. I call Photoshop.

4. Top Lack of Appreciation for Antiques


One Job

If anyone’s using a phone booth these days, you know they’re up to no good.

And they’re gonna need their privacy for that. This just won’t do.

(Click the image to see lots more You Had One Jobs. They’re pretty hilarious.)

5. Top Spring Fever Buster

And the Mom of the Year award goes to…these kids’ mom!!

Can you even fathom the fun level of this as a kid?

Definitely logging this away for the day Mason can slide down things without getting a concussion.

6. Top Wedding Cake

You might be tempted to think that this is phoning it in…


But in their defense, IMAGINE how long it took to do this! (And how many 4-letter words were used when it Jenga’d out a couple times along the way.)

7. Top Birthday Card

Spoken from the heart.

8. Top Dream Home Feature

When my LAUNDRY ROOM looks like this…that’s when I’ll know I’ve really made it.


Or that I’ve finally achieved lucid dreaming.

9. Top Dog

You deserve this, Baxter. Embrace it.

10. Top Logistical Nightmare

From here, this might look like a bunch of peaceful sailboats…


But if we were closer, I bet we’d hear hundreds of frantic road-ragers (sea-ragers?) screaming the sailboat equivalent of “YOU CALL THAT A TURN SIGNAL?!”


If you’ve missed previous TTs, here’s a handful of the most recent ones:

January Top Ten

December Top Ten

Happy Thursday :)

Hilar. The last time I “used” a phone booth was in Queenstown as an “I’m secretly using the free internet of the nearby hotel” stowaway.

I love that wedding cake – and I like PickyRunner’s idea of having one of those and one traditional. I also love that birthday card, especially for a tween/teen who probably won’t read the card anyways :)

The wedding cake. I think I’ll have 2- one of those and one of a more traditional kind. I love the cloudy cupcakes. Perfect for a downer mood, right? Oh, and the boats. Holy cow I freak out when we’re passing just a couple while out sailing. I don’t think I could handle all of those boats in one place without having a panic attack!

I like the wedding cake plan!

This post has officially made my day!
Love the lunch box! Hey, it’s all about the food presentation, right?! ;)
And that laundry room… holy moly. Even though I do my laundry probably every 2 weeks if I’m lucky, and am only forced to do so when I quite literally don’t have anything to wear, I could totally get used to that…

Can’t wait to check out your other top tens!

Thanks Khloe! I agree, the laundry room is insane!
