Called It! The Carroll-Marks Edition

Because Audrey and I consider ourselves “tastemakers” in that we always (or, you know, sometimes) are behind a trend before it gets popular, we wanted to make a list of things we “called” before everyone else in the nation. We at first wanted to entitle this list “Suck It!” but then we realized we’re adult people with jobs that we’d probably like to keep and we shouldn’t go around telling everyone to “suck it.” Some of you deserve it, but we’re not going to name names. We’re ladies. So for a few hours yesterday we made a list of all the things we were up on before all of you. And here it is in its entirety. Also, we need a lot of validation.

Editor’s Note: In case you were wondering, Carroll-Marks is either the future currency of the country I’m going to create when I secede from the Union, or mine and Audrey’s future last name when we finally breakdown and have our same-sex wedding at City Hall because we’re in desperate need of Kitchen Aide appliances and knives from Williams-Sonoma. It’s patented so don’t try to steal it.

But there were the brave few who knew that this World Premiere First Ever NoMad Blog Music Video Production was going to be epic. And they were right. The conversation went something like this:

Me: I want to make this video so I need you to record yourself lip syncing to this song and then send it to me.
Loved One: Done.

Brett Turnbull’s Bucket List

This past weekend I had the pleasure of babysitting my godson and cousin, Brett Turnbull. He’s nine and he’s awesome. If you’ve never read the story of this year’s best school photo, I’ve placed it here for you, and I suggest you do it now. It’s ok. We’ll wait. Let us know when you’re finished.

Ok, you’re back. So Brett and I had a lot of car time together this weekend because we’re both very popular and very busy. On one of our treks together, Brett sat quietly in deep thought for a good 10 minutes before turning to me and saying: “I’m really glad I’m not afraid of airplanes anymore.”
