Are You Feeling Clucky?

This weekend our friend Bridget accused her husband Eamon of being 'clucky' as she watched him snuggle and coo with the birdie. Apparently 'clucky' is a New Zealand/Australian adjective used to describe women (or men, in this case) who are itching for a baby.

Clucky, isn't that perfect?

Bridget and Eamon (a kiwi) met in New Zealand when she was working on this, so she's adopted all sorts of funny kiwi sayings in their years together since.  Another one that made me giggle was "chalk and cheese", meaning two things that are fundamentally different (even if they look alike on the outside).  Doesn't it sound like the name of a rock band made up of three-year-olds?

Ps - Speaking of babies, I still think this is the perfect baby gift, but maybe that's because it got me pregnant.

Pps - I picked up a lovely gal (and lifestyle/fashion blogger) named Usha while sitting at the bar at my favorite restaurant last night. I'm 75% certain my husband "Third Wheel Mike" was there, too.  Turns out Usha is originally from Australia, so of course I shared that today's post would be about the word 'clucky', which made her giggle in the same way I giggle when my mom tries to use hashtags. Long story short, she's delightful and adventurous and has one heck of a closet. Check out her blog or follow her on instagram to see what she had for dinner right before I attacked her. (Ps - here's my instagram while you're at it.)

Ppps - Bridget + the birdie + two peppers from my husband's garden.  #lovethesegirls #peppersnotsomuch

    1. so i guess that makes it "chalk and cheese and capsicum".

      Ps - love back at you biffle (which is apparently what all the cool 11-year-olds say instead of "bestie". I'm on the biffle train and I saved you a seat.).
