“Oh, God love her.” My exact sentiment as I watched a very pregnant women walk into Publix at lunch today while carrying her toddler and holding hands with one of her two other little girls. I can’t imagine being pregnant in this heat and watching after two small children.
“It’s just a store.” This was the hubby’s response when I told him that I was looking at a Flickr gallery of a new Super Target (courtesy of Miss Zoot.) Obviously, he does not understand the hypnotic allure of Tar-jay and what would possess a grown woman to look at another grown woman’s photos of a store that does not exist in our town. Actually maybe that is a little weird.
I really liked a quote I saw from actress Kate Beckinsale on the cover of the new Redbook magazine while in the checkout line at Publix. Something along the lines of “Just because you’re a mom, doesn’t mean you have to stop being sexy.” However, after looking up the article online and reading about her fabulous beachfront Malibu home, her nanny, her stylist, and her assistant, etc., it was a bit tough for me to relate to good ole Kate being “down-to-earth” as Redbook described, ya know?
The following is an excerpt from the Beckinsale interview…you tell me if you think this is “down-to-earth.”
She’s Got the Look
Kate’s stylist came prepared with many designer clothing options including Missoni, Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren â€” and tons of shoes, enough to line an entire wall of the house! As far as Kate was concerned, everything she tried on was a winner â€” gauzy blouses, sexy white tank tops, super soft T-shirts and lacy dresses were all big hits. She liked them so much, she decided to buy everything she tried on â€” even the shoes!
