It’s high art on Super Cali Listic this week as a hair rant turns into husband appreciation. To add sparkle to your weekly routine click here:
This week it’s back to Super Cali Land to confess the details of my double life as a succulent thief:
When I heard the cheerleaders from my school were organizing a breast cancer awareness, pink, cowboy themed alumni cheer event at my high school’s football game. I was like, “You had me at PINK!” But when I strolled up to my alma mater with Gramsie and baby and saw the other girls that showed up to practice the cheer routine I realized that maybe they meant “if you graduated in the last five years alumni cheerleading event”. But it was too late, I was there. So I learned that routine and worked it on the field. SuperCaliListic representing for baby mamas everywhere.
I’ve been cruising with the iPhone 4s for quite some time now, or I should say over two years and time to upgrade baby! So Deco, Jesse Legs and I took a stroll to the Apple store and I walked out with a beautiful white and silver number (blue leather case – Jesse’s pick – for interested parties). And staying true to my camera whore ways I of course documented the whole thing on video. First with my iPhone 4s and then with my iPhone 5s. For a very informative video review of course, not as a thinly veiled excuse to shoot a sparkly vid for my YouTube channel SuperCaliListic…
The other day Deco was napping, the dishes were done, the laundry was folded AND there was still lots of daylight. So of course, I sat down to my favorite past time – firing up iMovie for video log 236 and counting. Some might say I have a problem, but I like to think of it as a much needed creative outlet for this overworked mommy and aspiring filmmaker. But just as I sat down to ramble about God knows what, Jesse wandered into my shot and unwittingly became my Super Cali subject. I think you’ll agree after watching this video that I’m right in wanting him and his sexy legs to be in more of my Super Cali vids. For those of you just coming to the party, Jesse and I have a very strict agreement that I can film him, but only from the waist down.

My YouTube obsession started with a crazy girl named Andie Mills and her adventures with BFF Babs Darling.

Fast forward a few years and I’m still striking a pose, only the casting has changed to my beautiful baby boy, Deco. Shh! Don’t tell Babs, she’d die of jealously.

Jesse and I have been working non-stop on his Kickstarter campaign for American Psycho the musical. Needless to say we’ve been living and breathing all things Patrick Bateman for the past few weeks so when we thought of making a baby morning routine for Mother’s Day, we really couldn’t resist. I have a feeling we’ll be out a lot of money for Dec’s therapy sessions someday… Hope you enjoy!

This signed copy of American Psycho is just one of the very cool rewards on the AP kickstarter page. If you are still reading this and have not visited Jesse’s page (did I mention it was American Psycho on Kickstarter?) I’m thinking you are a robot whose programmer forgot to write code for basic knowledge of pop culture combined with the human emotion called curiosity.
So I was feeling pretty rotten this past week, so of course I decided to shoot a video from my “sick bed” instead of getting some much needed sleep. Brilliant. Originally I had planned to make a fun video about a beer pong tournament I was in the previous weekend, but of course all my plans fell through when I feel ill and spent what little energy I had caring for Baby Deco.
PS I know the pop phone thing is kinda weird, but get used to it, cause I’m too cheap AND busy to figure out a better solution right now.
I was recently in a collab with the YouTube channel iPhonedo – technology reviews for Turkey. It was a super fun shoot and although I don’t speak Turkish, from what I can SEE it seems pretty funny. Check it out.
AND iPhonedo used some of the footage to make this GarageBand music video. Very cool:
The grandparents are in town so Jesse and I decided to go to his office to do our taxes. Let’s just say I’m hard at work. Hard at work analyzing how my sweater makes me look like a matronly librarian type while I spin around the room. Let’s just say I’m not the paperwork type and I’m avoiding my very intricate receipt filing system. Which consists of wading up all my paperwork into a tiny little box and then sorting each meaningless scrap the day before my taxes are due.
