Globes + MIMM

by Kim on January 14, 2013

Ok, just a quick, quick Golden Globes commentary. (I’m not too cool to admit that I love this stuff.)

–Jodie Foster: she came out without coming out, and retired without retiring?? Hrrrrmmm? (The part about her mom was very sweet, though.)

–Anne Hathaway was WAAAY too huggy with Amanda Seyfried on stage. (She held her around the waist for a long time after this shot, and it was a more than a little weird.)

–Tina and Amy were good, but not neeeeaaarly as good as Kristen and Will.

–Bill Clinton was there??!?!?!

And, of course, here are my nominees for best dressed and worst dressed (ha, at first I wrote least dressed). Giuliana, whaaat?

Ok, that’s done…now, on to this week’s installment of Marvelous in my Monday (courtesy of Katie).

Some marvelousness from the weekend included…

–Mason’s new box!




…aka: car seat.


He’s finally outgrowing his baby seat, which is sad…not so much in a sentimental way, but in a logistical way. I liked having the option of leaving him in the seat when we run into Walgreens or something, vs. having to unstrap & restrap. But those days are officially gone.

–The Christmas tree de-lighting ceremony.


What a sorry sight. (The crappy late-night pic doesn’t help.)

Luckily, I had something fun to replace it with…

–This new chair!


I’d been ogling this at for MONTHS, since I knew I’d need something to fill the spot in our living room where our baby swing was a fixture for over 6 months (and then, briefly where the tree hung out). The chair’s on sale right now, and I was starting to worry that their stock would run out, so I finally pulled the trigger.


When I first opened the box, I was really nervous about how the ikat pattern (or so I learned it was called) would look next to the chevron rug in that room, but apparently, chevron + ikat is a HOT DECORATING TREND (per this source and this one, anyway). Who knew?!? (Definitely not me.)

–Getting all of my weekend To Do list items checked off. So far, not too many bites on the stuff I’m selling on eBay/Craigs…boo. Fingers crossed.

–This morning’s cup of coffee, after Mason was up from 3-6 AM this morning. (????) I’m guessing teething was involved.


…Fine, that wasn’t the actual cup I had. (Image source.) Whatever. Didn’t I just tell you I was up from 3-6 AM???

What was something marvelous about your weekend??

Boxes are the best toys for babies/toddlers! The best box activity I’ve done with my son is to cut different sized holes into one side then give him a bunch of things to put in those holes. He used to sit there for hours playing with the box! Love that chair!

That’s a GREAT idea Giselle!! I’ll have to try that.

Mason is SO cute! Yay for a big boy car seat! Kids grow so fast!

Loving the chair and the whole room looks beautiful!

Hope you have a great week girl! <3
