perfect strangers

Last night Rob & I were reminiscing about shows we watched as kids.

I remembered this show and started hysterically laughing.

Rob had no idea what I was talking about & all I could remember is that it was about two Greek guys & one was named "Balki".

I remember loving this show as a kid, it was ridiculously funny.

Did you ever watch it?

ooooooh my! I'm really liking this dress.

Good News!

Desperate Housewives has quickly become my favorite show.
I only started watching it 3 years ago so i had no idea how it all began.

I got the 1st season on ebay for $9!

Rob and I may or may not have spent 6 hours watching it yesterday. :)

I kinda wanna move to Wisteria Lane.

It's addicting.

What's your fave show?

the lazies

Laziness is nothing more than the habit of resting before you get tired.
-Jules Renard

I have recently come down with the absolute worst case of the lazies.
I work in the evenings and most days i don't have very much to do.
and that's exactly what i do...... not very much.
Many times when I'm bored I'll go shopping, but i can't exactly do that everyday.
i think sitting around doing nothing makes me even lazier, if that is at all possible.
I've been blaming it on the heat.
The heat makes you sleepy, right?
Perhaps i need a hobby?
Other than reading, which i love, but lets face it, it's a lazy hobby.

I'm pretty sure you will all be envious...

i have my very own personal eyebrow shaper.
His name is Rober. :)

Last night Rob and i were lying in bed, as he lovingly gazed into my eyes (ha) he decided it was time to pluck my eyebrows. It was the very first time he's ever done this for me and it was actually quite relaxing, except for one tiny little pinch.
I must say, he did an excellent job.



He also informed me that i had one little "whisker" he could take care of for me.

Now if that's not love i don't know what is.

just out of reach


I love this blouse & i think it would look super cute with the blue skirt i bought at f21 last month.
But for $128.... i have to pass.
If you've got buckets of extra $$, you can get yourself one here

(come to think of it, if you've got buckets of extra cash, maybe you could get me one too!)
* spotted on cup of jo

no fun

Do you know what is really no fun at all?

Being really bored :(

Deciding to bake oatmeal cookies :)

Taking out all the ingredients and spreading them on the counter :)

Planning to bring the cookies to work for happy bellies all around :)

Realizing my oven has not yet been fixed :( :( :(



i feel sad like this droopy flower

New Shoes


New shoes are always fun, but i think these are really fun.

My friend Melissa is getting married in less than 3 months and i just realized i didn't have shoes & we are being fitted for our bridesmaid dresses soon!

I just ordered these on zappos & i can't wait for them to arrive, i hear they have really fast shipping :)

Aren't they super duper pretty??!?!!

something blue

I guess i've really been liking blues lately.

I want to serve a srumptious homemade cake on this cake stand


I'm dreaming of wearing this dress to a day wedding.


I think this pillow would look perfect on a bed with solid, pale yellow sheets!


All from ETSY :)

Thankfully mine doesn't mind one bit.
