Glitt-A-Licia Guest Post: First Restock

Dear Reader,

 Last time we met, I let you board my crazy train with the destination of a bonafide polish addiction! I told you about my first lemming, my first heart break over a discontinued polish, and my shock and horror of looking for said polish on evilbay. I know we bonded and even shed a tear together over Unicorn Puke. (You know you cried when you saw how gorgeous that polish was! You know what I am talking about. Everyone has that ONE polish that is always out of your reach because you are not a millionaire. I know you cried too! Don't lie, I saw you!).

 Well, today the crazy train is going to stop at my first experience of a restock. This might be a wordy trip, but stay with me, you will be glad you did.

 Ah! Easter morning! What images come to mind?

My mind goes back to the days of my childhood. In my memories, Easter is a beautiful Spring day filled with rays of sunshine, butterflies fluttering, and the smell of honeysuckle filling the air. We would wear our Sunday best (which usually involved a white hat), go to church, then spend time with the family hunting eggs and bragging about the candy the Easter Bunny left for us.

 That was my recollection of Easter growing up, and that was my dream for my tiny family! I woke the kids up (who were one and half, the other six months) to see what the Easter Bunny had brought. Expecting to see excitement, I saw tears and screams because they were tired\hungry. Not how I pictured it, but oh well, I had one major thing to look forward too...The Wicked Polish Restock!!! No screaming could kill that excitement! 2pm I was getting polish!!

 Before the restock, we had a family egg hunt with my inlaws. That should be fun! It was a cloudy with a chance of tornados. Fun!

 We get to to the gathering and my baby girl screamed for two hours straight. My son did not want to speak to anyone. Sigh...My little antisocial family.

 After we finished eating, the egg hunt would start at 1pm (all the while, I am getting very excited as the Wicked restock is getting closer!  2pm baby!!) We all line up, and as soon as they say "Go" we started running!! My son found his first egg and was so proud of himself.
 This was great! It was going so well!!! My hubby was holding the baby so I could chase Jax to get pictures. My son runs off in one direction with his grandfather close by. I turn to my hubby to get a picture of him holding our very grumpy baby girl.
Out of the corner of my eye, I see my son bend over to get an egg. Then he starts screaming his head off! We were only a few steps away, but we both rush to his side. His grandfather had already picked him up from the ground, yet Jax was still screaming. I could tell this scream was from pain.
My hubby freaks out when he sees fire ants crawling all over Jax from head to toe.

J accidentally drops the baby, face first, into the mud. I scream. She screams. We all scream! I scoop her up from the mud and drop Jaxson's eggs. J steps on the eggs and squishes all of them.
About this time, I check the time and see the dark clouds rolling in.
"We are leaving!"
Before we left, they wanted a quick family photo.
I say "Fine, then we are going home!"
As we pose smiling like we are having the time of our lives, Jax pees all over J.

Oh yeah, Good Times!!

At least I had the Wicked restock to perk me up. We are on the road, the kids are asleep, and it is raining so hard J can hardly see the road. I start refreshing two minutes before 2pm when J wants to get into an argument with me. We are trying to basically curse each other in very sweet, calm tones not to wake the kids.

 After we called each other every colorful word under the sun, I look at the time. It is 2:01pm!! I hit refresh and the entire restock was already sold out!!!!

I wanted to punch that man in the back of the head, but I knew he was driving and that would just make us have a wreck.

So readers, I hope you enjoyed the story of my first restock. Trust me, I will never forget it! Lol!!! Now I laugh really hard every time I think about it!!

Do you have a great restock story? I would love to hear it!!!

Till next time, sparkle on!


  1. Oh my. That was a rough Easter. Funny how holidays with our own children never quite turn out the way we pictured them. Thanks for sharing your awful no good day. I hope you don't mind, I laughed,.......a lot.

  2. Hey Alicia, sounds like you have many interesting situations!! Just remember the kids will grow up way too fast!! Enjoy them while they are small!!hope you get restock next time !! Keep writing! Love your blog!! Tinsnipper

  3. Hahaha! Oh you poor thing! What a day!

  4. I would be offended if you did not laugh at all ;) Glad I gave you a chuckle!!

  5. I have a funny feeling the situations will be more and more interesting AND entertaining :)

  6. Thank you so much! This was one of my favorite stories! My hubby asked me what I was writting about this week, and I told him "About the time you dropped the baby face first in the mud." He said, "I never did that!" I said, "Um, remember last Easter??" "Oh yeah, I did drop her in the mud didn't I?" Lol!!! Men! :D

  7. Now, I laugh so hard everytime I think about it! It was an epic day!

    Lol!!! What an eventful day! I hate restocks, they're too stressful. I don't have a crazy story, but I just fell like if there are polishes left, they're never the ones I want, so I don't even stress over them anymore.

    Lol!!! He blocked it from his memory.

  10. It was my first, and had NO IDEA a whole stock would be sold out in ONE minute! Lol!!! It was an eye opener!

  11. Funny how men can forget when THEY do something, but remember when you come home without checking the bag from McDonalds and they put a McFish sandwich in the bag instead of the McNuggets you ordered. He still has not let me live that one down!
