This weekend Danny and I joined millions of our middle-class, millennial peers (though Danny's more of a boomer) by migrating to Ikea to purchase mass produced, but affordable, home furnishings. The 48 subsequent hours Danny worked on hanging our curtain wire and assembling shelving units while I mastered the Single Ladies dance via a particularly sassy YouTube tutorial.
By Sunday afternoon Danny needed some fresh air as his threats to "bomb those Swedish mother f*ckers" were becoming somewhat believable. I put a Coors light in his right hand and the camera in his left while we headed out to the backyard, rainy and mosquito-y as it was. I instructed Danny to take pictures of Macy's new Sevenly toys as I've recently been self-appointed as the company's messiah. I'm hoping this humanitarian effort will compensate for my family's lack of recycling, which I've been feeling bad about recently.
Macy is going to be 13 months this week. Her interests include Sesame Street, ripping up my US Weeklys (grounding ensued), antagonizing the dog with finger foods, dancing, and standing up in her high chair (more grounding.)
This toy is named Ophelie and she's a cool-ass chic. HA, get it? She's a chicken...
While I acknowledge this picture looks like I'm smoking a blunt pantless, let me assure you that's not the case. I'm just wearing short shorts and a long tank - its just a proportional issue. What I'm really doing in demonstrating how cool and functional my whistle necklace is. PLUS it helps fund peace in the Democratic Republic of the Congo - which I'm pretty sure Kendra Scott or even Miss Tiffany herself can't say.
My BFF who bought me this necklace (and Macy her toys) is in the midst of a Congolese adoption and wearing the necklace makes me feel connected to both her and sweet Nyota Grace who will be coming home next year to help Macy shred my tabloids.
