July Recap + Michelle’s Crazy Thoughts

Oh hey. It’s almost the end of August.  Time for the July recap. 

First. I must share the crazy thoughts going through my head.

1. I want camo skinny jeans.  It’s a new obsession.  Someone find me some cheap ones. JCrew has a beautiful pair but camo probably isn’t one of those closet staples that I should splurge on.  Nate doesn’t get it.  I think those Duck Dynasty boys are wearing off on me. 

2. I don’t know what is more embarrassing for me.  The fact that I watch Duck Dynasty or the Kardashians.  At least neither is on a regular basis.  I really don’t watch that much tv.  I clearly make good decisions when I do.

3. Someone send me a way to get rid of moles.  They are destroying our yard.  I might sprain my ankle.  This is serious stuff.  Nate has been fighting them for 4 years and he refuses to hire someone to get the job done. I’m going to make it my mission.  Or publicly humiliate him into it.  Probably the latter.

4.  Don’t Google nude scarf.  Don’t.  This and #1 are good reasons for me to stick to DIY projects and not fashion.

5. Ike lodged a complaint with me.  He needs a dog bed in the sewing room.  He told me to put a rush order into Sew Midwestern.  Poor thing.


Happy July recap!  Happy weekend!

Catch up on the rest of 2013 here:  January February March April May June


  1. Get an outdoor cat. Ike will probably have a fit but cats are excellent mole killers.

  2. We had a mole issue at the lake. Once we got rid of the grub worms the moles were gone. I think we used Bayer Grub Control, or the Ortho version. If you haven't that yet, give it a shot. Also works on andts and other insects.

  3. You are so funny! Probably shouldn't google anything with "nude" in it, just to play it safe. LOL xo Kristin

  4. You need to have a "Michelle's Crazy Thoughts" section in all of your posts - hilarious!

  5. !! We have moles also. We tried the mole trap thing where it stabs the moles multiple times, but that didn't work. We also tried the mole poison thing that didn't work... then we just left one of our dogs outside for extended periods of time:
    2.5 moles are dead
    1 rat is dead
    2 baby rabbits are dead

  6. I love this post! We had moles at our house growing up. My parents would put a hose in the hole and just turn the water on and let it run. I can't remember how often/long they would run water, but, it worked. I think you could google that safely. :-)

    On sale for $48.96 - no brainer!!!!

    You are welcome!

  8. We have moles in our yard too. Jesse has been getting rid of them by covering a mouse trap in peanut butter and placing next to their holes then covering them with buckets. So far we've killed 4 moles and only look slightly white trash with buckets all over the yard haha.

  9. LOL, nude scarf... And publicly humiliating your husband into something works great, I do it all the time.
    Have a great weekend.

  10. For a moment I thought this was your August recap & thought "Michelle's calling it quits on this month a tad early...". Glad to see we're just catching up on July. I agree that Ike needs a dog bed in the sewing room. Or a whole chair just for him... (at least that's what Penelope would argue for).

    And while I'm not sure when you would wear these, looks like Forever 21 has some cheap camo skinnys. (Sorry Nate!)

  11. I couldn't help myself I googled, it was bad. I will never not trust you again. I like Ashley's idea with the buckets that sounds clever.

  12. i didn't know i needed camo skinny jeans til 5.8 seconds ago. and now i am left with a big camo void in my life.

  13. I just googled Nude Scarf.
    Expected to see some beautiful silky/cashmere scarves.

  14. I'm thinking that nude scarf would be a good form of public humiliation. Maybe paired with camo skinnies? Just saying.

  15. Everyone keeps talking about Duck Dynasty, and I feel like maybe I should be watching it so I can fit in. Okay, I'm going to do it.

  16. I googled. You made me do it.

  17. I don't understand the Duck Dynasty hype. But I could get behind the camo skinnies.

    I once heard something about putting Juicy Fruit gum in mole holes. They chew the gum and choke to death I assume. But it's probably an old wives tale. It'd be a pretty cheap option to try though. Do cats hunt moles? Maybe you should borrow someone's cat?

    1. Chelsea, I'm going to try this mole-killing gum! There are tunnels all over my yard, and I don't want to do poison because of my dogs. And I don't want my dogs to dig them up and eat them, because it makes them sick.

      I was going to try moth balls, but I really like the idea of Juicy Fruit gum!

  18. BAHAHa nude scarf comment is hilarious!!!!

  19. This one is soooo cute with the polk-a-dots. Your friend is very lucky!
