Our dear friend, comedian, producer, and writer – the talented/hilarious PETE K. came back on and discusses his recent epic road trip, why he has two regrets that involve weddings, the exact moment in college when he decided to stop being a meanie and why Garden State is sitting right next to Margot At The Wedding in his book. He also creates a lot of phlegm in Elizabeth. A lot. Enjoy!

Totally Mommy Podcast
Leelee is back co-hosting this week (yay!) and shares The Good (her lil man turned 1! And Elizabeth had an awesome baby shower), The Bad (Leelee’s daughter has been out of sorts, Elizabeth’s vulva is no beuno) and The Funny (Leelee’s husband had a colorful description of their daughter’s behavior, Elizabeth needed snack time during a rock show). Then Leelee has some awesome advice (Elizabeth’s is mediocre at best 🙂 to listener questions regarding gender disappointment in pregnancy, dealing with sticky Mother In Law situations, how to handle a “gun situation” with the in laws, and what to do when one child resents the other for the amount of attention he requires. Enjoy!
Totally Married Podcast
Elizabeth and Andy discuss his newest costco purchase/foray into “health” before diving into some very interesting listener questions about our Freebie’s, how to navigate requesting money owed to you from relatives, how to move past a betrayal in a relationship, what to do in a relationship when one partner is hyper critical of the other, and whether leaving your home, relationship, friends and family to pursue a dream is really worth it. Enjoy!
She’s a threepeat offender here on Totally Laime and today she gets profound! Comedian, actress, writer, and podcast host (coming soon: Get Your Cry On) ELIZA SKINNER came by and blew our minds in the best way by discussing Iyanla, validation thru technology, and why it’s better to like people who like you back and make you feel good! (imagine that!) Enjoy!
Friends. I know I’ve shared more than what’s probably morally or ethically acceptable to discuss regarding my fantasies on the podcasts. (Bela Karolyi, anyone?) But it wouldn’t feel right not sharing this pregnancy/virgo eye candy I’m about to show you.
BEHOLD: My bathroom “junk” drawer.
I mean. Can you even? Isn’t she purty? But like, in a take-charge, competent, and yet calming kind of way? This, my friends, is what gives me little joygasms every time I open her up. I cannot believe I didn’t do this sooner – and it took all of fifteen minutes. The drawer was so small that organizing had previously seemed futile. That was until I discovered a little drawer trick – I recycled little gift boxes to create compartments… Do you see how there are compartments? My hair bands and nail polish and metal utensils all have their own little homes?! They are so happy there in those cozy homes! They love it!
I couldn’t even bring myself to take a “before” picture but rest assured that for the last FIVE YEARS, it looked something very similar to this:
This drawer transformation was made about a month ago and I vowed to not share my excitement with the world until it had been a month and everything was still in tact, because a temporary organize is not a true organize according to the world’s leading pre-eminent organization expert, moi.
When one organizes it should: 1. Look nice and tidy 2. Be functional and 3. Be efficient. If all those things are in place, it will stay organized!! 4 EVA. Hummina hummina hummina. Can you tell I love this shit?!
This, along with all the churros I can eat (A LOT) has been one of the best parts of growing this baby human – the ability to fly my organizing freak flag all the way, and no one can stop me. In pregnancy it’s called “nesting” and I’ve heard stories of women being in labor and going out to detail their husband’s cars in the midst of contractions. Usually nesting happens closer to the end but I have been playing the pregnancy nesting card from the get go and my home is finally totally. fucking. organized. AHHHH!! It feels so good. The best part is knowing that babies don’t ever mess anything up, right?!
So if you’ve been putting off pulling all the crap out of that one drawer – you know the one – and putting it back together in a way that will make your happy feelings tingle every time you open it, let me urge you to: DO IT. It will not only bring you joy but it will also make you be a better person in general. Do you think Mother Teresa had “clutter”? I rest my case.
Laimewads – I can’t be stopped, I need to keep going! What little organization tricks do you use in your life/house/soul? Leave in the comments!
