There’s a card for that.

Just in case you aren’t sick of silly outtakes, here’s another shot from the famous photo shoot.  You know, the one where mom pretended to be Herb Ritz and I pretended to be Christie Brinkley but we’re both just really awkward….or at least I am.

I’ve changed clothes right in the middle of the mall parking lot wearing the Undress and no one had a clue.  It’s genius.  Go get one.

Yesterday, we went to pick out a card for a friend of mine who recently had surgery and I was getting all kinds of pissed off at the poor selection.  There were over 5,000 cards available.  Four were in the ‘Get Well Soon’ section.  FOUR.  But they had all kinds of cards for ‘congratulations on your recent coming out’, ‘welcome to your new gender’, ‘sorry to hear about the loss of your partner’s pet’,(not your pet mind you, but your partner’s pet!)

What the hell? What happened to the typical Happy Birthday, Get Well Soon and Across the Miles cards?  Where did they go?  Of course, just as I was bitching up a blue streak we came across the mack daddy of all cards.  It said, ‘Running is an Accomplishment, Congratulations on your recent race’.

No way!

A running card!  An actually congratulations on your race card!  When did they start printing running cards?  And then I looked at Mom and said the better question is ‘why have you never bought me one?’

Has anyone ever bought you a congratulations on your race card?

Did you know they had congratulations on your race cards?



A Rescue, Long Runs, The Undress and Bless Your Heart.

I know, I’m a little late with that promise.  The big discount and those Herb Ritz like pictures but we had a major event happening over here last Thursday.  A rescue.

MacGyver hired a few friends to help with the floor project because the den is huge and he didn’t want to tackle that project all on his own and apparently, he didn’t have all that much faith in my abilities, anyhow, we were all sitting out on the back lanai when a raven flew by with something in its talon and dropped it in the jacaranda tree and started pecking at it.  The screech was horrible.

Woody Jac

Meet Woody Jac.  He’s a red-bellied woodpecker.  He’s perfectly fine now.  MacGyver climbed into the jacaranda tree and rescued him.  The raven was mad pissed.  We weren’t able to re-nest him.  The nest is much too high up and even if we were able to get him in it, the raven kept circling and we were afraid it would take him again.  So, I guess I’m a mama to a red-bellied woodpecker now.

When he gets older he’ll look like this,

Right now he just eats and sleeps.  But because baby birds can’t drink water, he needs to eat quite frequently to keep from becoming dehydrated and I didn’t get a lot of sleep this weekend.  I feel like a new mom again.

I did manage to run 10 miles on Saturday and I had planned on running 10 more on Sunday but I stopped at 7.58 because I was tired as shit.  Having a newborn baby in the house wears you out regardless of the species.

Mom and I did manage to get those pictures though and you really need to take advantage of this offer because you have six days left.  THIRTY FIVE percent off!  That’s a heck of a deal.  The Undress is my favorite piece of clothing, because it gives me the ability to change clothes anywhere, even in public!   Check out the video of how it works here.

Mom and I started to take some really good pictures and I really wanted them to look professional so I tried to pose.


But Mom got a little trigger happy and snapped hit the camera too soon.  Great shot of the dress,  (and my hair.)  In fact I wish my hair looked this good all the time.  It doesn’t though.  It only looks this good when I’m on my way to get it cut.

(FYI, I take my bikini bottoms off at the beach and shake the rinse the sand out and put them back on and no one has a clue!  I can take them off right through the pockets.)


The is the only pose that I actually got but it’s blurry, I’m pretty sure I called that, anyway shortly after mom wanted me to do some ‘exercise posing’ whatever that is and that’s when things went a little crazy and the gut laughs started.

Don’t forget to use code 35Flower and go get this dress at  You will love this dress.

Mom and I did manage to get a little bit of shopping done this weekend, not much, but some.  Just enough for me to find the perfect coffee mug.

I’ve got to get some work done but I’ll post some better pictures of Woody Jac later in the week.  And maybe some more hilarious outtakes of the photo shoot mom and I tried to do and head on over to the Undress website this week and get your Undress before the code expires.  Use Flower35 for 35%off!

What did you do this weekend?


The Undress, and a discount code!

I’m not the kind of runner who can power out 5 or 6 miles and then immediately meet up with friends for a morning cup of coffee and feel fresh and rejuvenated.  No, absolutely not.  I feel stinky and sweaty and I need to change out of my clothes as soon as I finish running, even before I walk the dogs.  Because I sweat a lot.

But there are a lot of situations where I can’t easily change out of my work out clothes and I’m forced to get in my car in my stinky clothes and drive home, or worse try to change in a nasty port –a-potty, and this one time I tried to change under a pink wrap around towel that my mom had given me a few years ago and I almost exposed myself on a crowded beach.  It wasn’t pretty.

So when I was contacted about a product that was basically a mobile changing room that I could also wear, I was not only intrigued, I was super excited about it.  The Undress is more than just a dress. It’s a SYSTEM that has many proprietary features to help you change clothes without ever getting naked.

The Undress

And it is Super Cute!  As soon as I got it I put it on and ran outside to try it out.  MacGyver helped to take some photos so that you could see how easy it is to change using this dress.


As sweet as it was for MacGyver to take pictures I think the video from the company does a much better job.  MacGyver tends to get a little distracted.

This is how you actually use the dress:

The best thing about this dress is how often is has come in handy for me.  I had no idea how much I would use it and I’m finding more and more uses for it every day.   I’ve not only used it for running but also after paddle boarding and after kayaking and even after weight workouts.

My Mom is coming to visit in a few weeks and I really want to go to yoga on the beach in the mornings but there is the dreaded sandy and sweaty car ride home.  I have a feeling I’m going to have to purchase two more dresses for her and my mother in law.  Fortunately, the kind people at The Undress have given me a special discount for my readers.

During the month of April, visit THE UNDRESS website and order any regular price item and receive 35% off with discount code Flower35.  Thirty Five Percent!

And if you send me your picture in the undress I’ll post it here on the site.

What’s the worst place you’ve ever had to change?
