earthy bouquet inspiration

January 26, 2012

I’ve never been into flowers. Isaiah started with flowers on our first date and has sent or brought me a bouquet for every major celebration since. Who could hate flowers after that? I’m still not sold on flowers for the wedding, but a bouquet is pretty standard, so I’m considering it. I really like deep, [...]

hug me, hug me, say that you’ll hug me

January 24, 2012

Physical touch is a strange bird, isn’t it? I can go from being a hugger to an angry cat at touch. I have girl friends who love to squeal and hug and lay on one another’s laps and play with each other’s hair. I was like that too. I’m not sure what changed, but I don’t [...]

it’s my birthday

January 22, 2012

Yo. It’s my birthday. I was going to say something cynical and introspective because that’s kind of how I feel. But this weekend doesn’t deserve it. My mom took Isaiah and I to the rodeo this weekend, we went shopping together, Isaiah made a delicious, gourmet meal, and we watched a movie. I went to [...]

wedding things in progress

January 18, 2012

Things: Finalizing the guest list. Getting sa-the-da’s out before the end of the month (we’re late!). Reading about wedding etiquette before we commit the unforgivable wedding-war crimes of improperly addressing invitations. Trying to decide if I like the $50 dress I bought enough to wear it for the nupts. Pinning wedding inspiration like a damned fool every [...]

the level of nudity appropriate for a gym locker room

January 16, 2012

I don’t know what Feng Shui consultant was responsible for all of the gym locker rooms of the world…but the mirrors? It’s a little much. I shouldn’t be able to stand around a maze of the locker room at the wall of sinkless countertops and see you, standing completely nude, facing the locker room. The [...]

you might need a super-power to get hired

January 13, 2012

My post on getting hired with super-powers was on Glass Heel yesterday. Here’s a snippet: I recently began mentoring a college student. Like many other college students today, she wants to continue to graduate school. Why? Because of the job market. When I graduated a little more than a year ago, it seemed every other person went [...]

can i give my dog a ham bone?

January 12, 2012

For years, my mom has given our family dog, Wishbone, ham bones after the holidays. Actually, wait. Every year, my mom cooks the most delicious, fall-apart ham for Christmas. After a few days of leftovers, she makes pea soup. It sounds pretty disgusting and I avoided trying it every year until last year. It’s actually [...]

top 5 creative tumblrs

January 11, 2012

It took me a while to find a few Tumblrs that I loved looking at every day. When Kathleen (The Mirthmobile) shared Dream Cats on her blog, I was determined to find Tumblogs that screamed to me. If you can get over the lack of image crediting, there is inspiration for the taking on Tumblr. From my [...]

wedding cakes you shouldn’t eat

January 10, 2012

I’m not usually a fan of the wedding cake. I’ve never enjoyed a single slice of wedding cake. We were thinking of doing a dessert bar with a hodgepodge of the best desserts. Because dessert is nothing to fuck around with. But something about these cakes are drawing me to reconsider our vendetta against the [...]
