@LilyB re: b) there are at least five kinds of pie there, so it's probably sufficient.

On I Can't Wear Heels

@districter It's pretty common apparently! I might have held off on a couple nice investment pairs of shoes if I'd known...

On I Can't Wear Heels

@districter I am now, after baby, an 11 extra-wide (previously 10.5 regular, also very scarce). I wasn't much for heels before, but now I'm just happy to find something that doesn't scream "elderly retired nurse on a cruise ship" (not my Summer Look) (I love the idea of cultivating a Summer Look).

On Black Honey and Me

oh my god! I had no idea they still made this. I guess I just assumed it had been discontinued? Maybe I tried to buy some once years ago and there wasn't any that day? I still have a tube from probably the mid-90s with a little tiny glob shoved way at the bottom. BRB, heading to the mall for more.

On Let's Talk About Birth Control

I tried the pill a couple times, a couple different version each time. They were all horrible, and left me just crying and never wanting sex, so I've mostly always just used condoms. I got an IUD shortly after I started seeing my now-husband, and it was glorious! I had it out to get pregnant, and now we mostly rely on being too tired to have sex. It's very effective, but my periods are heavier than on the IUD, so.

(Also I always made my boyfriends take the placebo pills. I never had any with iron in them.)

On Working on My Night Blogs

I slept pretty well until the baby woke up at 4:00. She went back to sleep at 4:30 or so, but I did not. I laid around thinking of all the things I could do if I got up (but it's cold out there!) and then I got up and shopped for powdered Pedialyte on my phone (surprisingly, not cheaper than buying liquid liters!) and then I checked Twitter and then the baby got up again at 6:30.

On Weekend Roundup / Open Thread

I wish the baby had a scepter of some kind though.

Also my employer does not recognize this national holiday. But daycare does! Oh boy.

On Cashew-Raspberry Second Breakfast Cake

I am a big fan of second breakfast, but I have never thought to have a separate set of recipes for it. Very satisfying idea! Also sounds like tasty cake.
