Adult footie pajamas are one trend I have never been able to understand. You have to practically strip naked to pee! Just…why??
2011 is almost over and you know what that means! No, not New Year’s parties with all their “auld lang syne” nonsense or fireworks or even resolutions: It’s time for the Top Ten Whatever Lists of 2011! And of course I got in on the action with my piece this week for Shape on the Top 10 Exercise and Weight-Loss Trends of 2011. This assignment gave me a weird mental hiccup because a) I am not an expert in anything much less weight loss so how am I qualified to say what “top ten” means? and b) I have a weird brain so what sticks in my brain may not be what stood out to you. I was having a mental block writing it until I realized that basically I have blanket permission to be an unqualified nutjob. I tried not to abuse that privilege. I ended up with a tour through the warren of What Charlotte Thinks About A Lot and now I’m really curious as to what would make your top trends in health and fitness this year. Check out my Top 10 list and then tell me: What were the big stories that stuck out to you this year? Any of you own adult footie pajamas? Why??

10 Hilarious Childhood Stages I Really Will Miss. Nothing irritates me more than when my kid is in the middle of doing something really awful – say, drawing on the grocery store floor with lipstick he stole from the cosmetics aisle – and someone says, “You’ll miss this stage when they’re grown!” No, I can promise you I won’t. But there are some sweet stages that I will and sometimes it is good to think about those too.
