A Day of Yes

Say Yes

I say no a lot. I mean I say no to my kids a lot. Strangers and friends who I care considerably less about, I seem to struggle with limits an nos, and yet my kids, no is almost reflexive at this point. Hey mom can- Nope. Hey Brittany, can you fly in to do this thing that you barely have time or … [Read More...]

First of all, if you came here via a search like "OMG SOMEONE STOLE MY PHOTO ONLINE!?," this is awkward, but I actually have no real advice for you outside of procuring a lawyer and having them handle all the legal crap. Way easier. Also, maybe go see Maleficent twice in a 5 day span like I did, and … [Read More...]

Dear Kate & Me

dear kate brittany

Dear Kate, A few months ago I walked in the pouring rain through Chinatown and Little Italy to McNally-Jackson bookstore just before 6am, and without a stitch of make up or hair spray, I took off my pants and shopped in my underpants.  It was one of my most favorite days.  Brittany I can say … [Read More...]

DIY Marquee Camp Letters

DIY Marquee Letters

Nothing adds a bit of pizzazz like some flashy marquee letters. Unfortunately, while Etsy offers oodles of them, they are largely out of my price range, and by my price range, I mean the amount Andy will confidently agree that I should spend on light up letters for a 4 day event. Commence project … [Read More...]

What I Wore: Summer Boho

Summer Boho Tie Dye

Sometimes I feel like I was supposed to have been born an Olsen. Like the 4th fat one, who's super excited for her sisters' successes, but has no interest in Hollywood and instead stayed home to work at a bank or something. The boho gene is strong in me. I have fun dressing up in girly dresses and … [Read More...]

Dear Homeowners…

Dear Homeowners, I've been using Google earth and I like what I see. How about you move out and sell all your stuff to me? Love, Brittany, future homeowner (Maybe? Say yes?) "That sounds creepy." Andy furrows his brow next to me at our dining room table. "It rhymes, and it's endearing." I … [Read More...]

The Death of Pregnancy License

Opening this text window feels weird, but also like home. So like weird home. Or, you know, normal home, because what home isn't weird? Anyways, here we are together, on the internet. First of all, I have book mono. It's a legitimate thing. You get it one of two ways. From open mouth kissing your … [Read More...]
