These SNL skits from Lindsay Lohan’s recent special had me cracking up.
I’m aware that homegirl got some Rose McGowan-style plastic surgery done. But relax. She’s back on track, trying to figure some shit out … maybe we could just ease up on her lip-job.
I may or may not have freaked out on Alyssa recently when she told me the weekend after this weekend is Thanksgiving. Oops. I did. The seasons, you guys, I swear.
For now, enjoy the latest things that have made me want to die from jealousy.

Apparently, the weeks are only made up of Fridays now… Here’s a couple of posts I wrote elsewhere this week if you want to catch up:
Why We Get to Say “Fuck” and You Don’t – on staying true to your brand
Modern Etiquette (Is Nonexistent) – on the public incivility of humans toward smokers
We share inspiration all week long on Pinterest
In the process of trying to find a new name for ourselves and rebrand this little shindig, my friend Alyssa (Kind of a Mess) mentioned she had a project on her hands as well. She wanted to redesign her blog and a couple of other things – the only thing we ended up doing was help her redesign the blog.
So she came over. Well, first we went out for gorgonzola burgers. You remember our gorgonzola burgers. We were on a time crunch of one day – a few hours – most of which we spent gabbing about everything from family to how jealous I am of a few envy-inducing gigs Alyssa has been able to work out.
We worked on this little ditty with her. She so sweetly talked about the process of working together here.
Have I told you I’m not good with compliments? Isaiah once complimented me when he lived in Vegas on the phone – when we were still friends – and I balled myself up in the front seat of the car and kicked a spider-crack into my windshield. No lie. My parents suspiciously said, “I know you said a rock hit the glass, honey, but this looks like it’s bubbling out from the inside…”
Here I am again, with a 90-degree crick in my neck from embarrassment, trying to type. A reverse gush-fest is coming soon, because you should know ALL about Alyssa and how she freakin’ fascinates and delights me. But not now. Because now I’m kind of an awkward mess. Get it?
I found Mama’s Sauce a while back. They’re a rad letterpress and print shop started by three Italians in Orlando. You should know them, because, you know, they’re awesome.
They recently submitted these classic, charming invitations they made for recent clients. They’re awesome, yes? Yes. They also designed Save the Dates for the same couple and I love that they’re in a completely different style than the invitations: authentically old seeming (not “vintage”) letterpress postcards.
But, for now, back to the invitations. The chick has these yellow shoes, right? She loves them, right? You would too. Mama’s Sauce designed these around her sunny shoes.
Right? Their blog is full of inspiration and recent projects they’ve completed and honestly, it just looks like a fun place to work. As if that weren’t enough, they took the time to explain paper quite a bit – which, if you’ve tried shopping for paper anytime, is a delightful rarity.
