as i was doing a nasty jillian michaels workout yesterday, i had this conversation with my son.

m: you might not think so, henry, but your mom is pretty strong.
h: but you don't have abs.
m: everyone has abs.
h: well, you don't have six-pack abs.
m: i'm ok with that, not everybody has six-pack abs.
h: papa does.
m: oh yeah? how did he get them?
h: he grew them.

if only it were that easy, right?

for anyone in the midwest, stay inside today. if the governor closes schools, you know mother nature means business!! stay safe and stay warm!!

two birds


  1. I love the things children say! Priceless. Loving you two's fab renditions of the inspiration, too! Megan, I adore the color blocking and Nora, that skirt is so great! T.

  2. That is hilarious! That Jillian Michaels is no joke. I am hurting soooo bad today!

    Both of you look great as always. The green tights are so cool and I love the way Nora tied her scarf.

  3. Now ask him how many you can actually grow: just the 6,12 or can you even get 18?
    NICE tights Megan! Really liking those and I knew you'd be rocking the leather!! Your skirt is gorgeous Nora, lovely and flowing! I really liked this inspiration!

    Why, what's the weather doing in MW? I got completely soaked this morning going to school and it was miserable! X

  4. stay warm! it's snowing and icy in north guys would laugh at everything closing down, but it';s usually 52 here.

  5. I love your tights!! And comment about growing abs--too funny! We are also having the crazy cold weather--I'm definitely staying inside!

  6. Haha, that is funny! Stay warm guys! We have a wind chill advisory for tonight into tomorrow morning so I can only imagine how cold it is over there.

  9. megan i love those tights! and nora your hair is SO cute!

  10. Those jackets and skirts are just adorable on both of you!!! Love it! :)

  11. Wish I could just grow some! No matter how hard I try, six pack abs will never be mine. Oh well - such is life.

    Loving those inspired outfits today - stay warm!

  12. Happy New Year, girls! I love these looks...Nora, I need that skirt and the haircut, thank you!

    My son talks about packs all the time, 2, 4, 6 you name it! LOL Happy Snow days!

  13. Morning Megan and Nora! Well, then I will just go and grow my abs now, too, then! lol Henry's mind is so dang cute. I love both of your scarf's. Nora, did my tutorial help you tie yours? It look like a "modified european loop". It does. I don't own a long skirt (personal reasons) so just did pants. lol Have a tremendous day and thanks for the long leg compliment. lol

  14. You both look great. I hope you both stay safe and warm
