The music died on my dvr for One Tree Hill today. Guys, we had a good run but with 8 episodes unwatched and space at a premium I made the hard choice today to delete. Your plot line had become ridiculous and I have other things to watch, like real housewives of insert city or Top Chef All-Stars. I wish all of you the best of luck in the rest of the season and will be getting updated on your lives thru AS.
All the best,
P.S. Sophia Bush, you are so pretty and could totes be on a station better than the CW!
Seriously. Kate Spade's collection is getting out of control. I want everything, always. I just looked at her spring look book and pretty much mentally spent all my dinero. So currently a lot of it is just shoes but I know when the rest of the collection comes out I will be equally pleased.
Phaedra Parks from the Real Housewives of Atlanta is supposedly a big high power attorney in the ATL. After watching this week's episode I couldn't help but think who wants to get their legal advice from a woman with butterfly hair clips in their hair and pink eyeshadow. She seriously looks like a 8 year old girl playing dress up in her mother's clothes. For this reason she is now my style icon. I will be trying to emulate her style as often as possible. Below is her "look" for her baby shower. Classic.
With the popularity of the show 16 and Pregnant as well as Teen Mom my friends and I have been trying to get in on this action and we have a fool proof plan. My married couple friends AH and DH are expecting their little bundle of joy Avery any day now. We are fully immersed in baby watch 2010. All of our great minds think the premise of a show called 30 and Pregnant is the next big thing. You know bringing a child into this world when you have planned for it? Both parents love each other and know how to communicate and not argue. I mean it is going to be riveting tv. We are currently waiting on MTV to get back to us but I am pretty sure it will get picked up and it will be my time to shine as the helpful aunt in the background. AH and I were texted about the show today as I was watching this week's 16 and pregnant
Me: Yeah it's a little boring. I keep watching for previews of 30 and preggers. This week D and A tell Sampson (aka their precious dog)
AH: We are on the way to see Due Date as well in this weeks episode
Me: HAhah I love it. Sampson is confused about being a big brother. How will he handle this new responsibility.
AH: And then DH told Sampson he could go on a walk and he forgot about being a big brother at all.
This may not be super funny for the rest of my 10 readers but I crack up everytime I think about this and I am pretty sure when other friend DH reads this she will also have a good chuckle. Long story short. Stay tuned to MTV for this cutting edge television show to start and don't forget to set your dvr. Until then Baby Watch 2010 continues. Oh and Avery can you hold out until at least Sunday? Auntie Taytay has some tailgating to do Saturday. Please and thank you and can't wait to meet you!!!
Yes Robert Downey Jr. I would also have that same look on my face if I was an outstanding actor like you having to talk to The Situation. I wonder what deep issues were discussed? How to GTL to the max? Best brand of hair gel?
While catching up on my ever important world topics this AM I saw that Miss USA won at Miss World. She is only 18 and it got me thinking. Is this something that you will now include on your resume? I mean it is pretty impressive but does it go down under the careers or under other activities? Reigning Miss World November 2010-Present? If it was me I would totes include it on my resume but then again I would also attach a head shot of me wearing the crown too in case they forgot how awesome and important I am.
So the world series is going on and the Rangers are not performing as well as I would like but I have been really enjoying the man candy on the Giants.
First there is this hunk of a man who is clearly using some men's hairclub hair color on his beard. Love that he is not afraid to pretty much own it. Brian Wilson I applaud you. Also on looking at this picture on a larger scale he totes looks like Christopher Meloni from Law and Order:SVU.
Next up, Tim Lincecum. I love your flowing locks. I love that you are 5'11'' and 172 lbs. I know this because there was a big debate at work and I wikipediaed it.
The Giants is a team of hair and I for one love it. I wonder what products they use?
1) A white suit. I was willing to let this slide because it is Austin and I think you can wear white through September within reason. A white suit is a little over kill. Even more overkill, it was linen.
2) We have a lot of walkers at work. For those who aren't familiar, these are the people that walk through the hallways in packs for fitness. They do it during their break, usually take up the whole hallway and then look annoyed when you, walking by yourself, make them get out of your way. Those are just details though. This walker I saw today had a first. Wrist weights. She must be pretty serious. From far away I thought they were really big matching bracelets to which I thought, that looks dorky but realizing they are wrist weights, I was a little more okay with it.
The way to my heart it with flowers. I simply love flowers. Tulips are my favorite but I have a new flower I have been loving the looks of, the Pom Pom Dahlia. If you ever want to get me to love you forever or forgive you for some horrible crime, flowers will do the trick. Just please no roses, they are not my favorite.
And it started off with a bang last night!! I am happy the show seemed to be back to it's normal shenanigans and that JH and I have something to text about. Is the new girl who was on the new Melrose Place that failed on now on GG, going to actually be Gossip Girl or is she some crazy stalker girl. Georgina Sparks is a crazy person and why Dan signed the birth certificate is beyond me. Gossip Girl, it's good for you to be back!
If there is one thing I have learned from reading decorating blogs it is that there are lots of very handy people out there and sadly I am not one of them. I just read a blog entry about someone making their own bed. There were lots of pictures and what looked like many steps and I must say I was beyond impressed because I can't do any of that crazy stuff..maybe one day. The only project I see in my near future is spray painting some frames and that came from SB and WB who told me next time I visit them in SA I should bring something to spray paint. Baby steps.
Bananarchy might be one of the best ideas ever. They are frozen banana's that are dipped in chocolate and toppings. It is like Arrested Development came to life here in Austin. It is quite possibly one of the most delicious treats and since there is fruit involved you don't feel as bad about it. My favorite is the Milli Vanilli. See below It is dipped in chocolate and vanilla and then I get crushed m&m's on top. Pretty much like heaven in your mouth. A couple months ago I did a girls weekend with CC and KD and I tried my hand at my own frozen bananas and they were met with nothing but love and kind words. Below is my set up to make the banana magic happen. It involves a homemade double boiler which made me feel like a real chef! The 3 topics I offered were Oreos, M&M's and Reese's Pieces. Yes my friends, they were a hit. It may be my new party trick so if you see me making these at a party, try to act all impressed like.
Yesterday my BFF got engaged and I could not have been happier. We had been patiently waiting for it to happen and now all the fun stuff can get started. Out gchats about dresses and wedding stuff won't be just for fun anymore. I bought a new Martha Stewart wedding magazine at the grocery store last night in her honor. CP, soon to be CG, I couldn't be more happy or excited for y'all. KG is a lucky man!!
I saw a woman wearing these shoes today. First I might establish that I had no clue these shoes were even still made. Second, I had these shoes in the 4th grade and they were the most awesome shoes and all the cool kids like me were wearing them. Today, in the year 2010, I would not be caught dead in them. I should also mention I know it was the double Velcro style because her jeans were so short I could see both lines of Velcro. Bless her heart.
Welcome back Nelly. I have been missing you and was thrilled to hear you were returning with some new jams! When the then IT, now IC, went to St. Louis we listened to nothing but your hits as we entered the city!
This is going to be a random one but I feel like it is a pretty funny topic esp. given my thoughts on it. A man's chest hair. This is something that does not bother me and is actually something I prefer. I am not saying I want a grizzly of a man but I think there is something very nice and dare I say sexy about chest hair on a man. You know they are a man, man. I don't want one of those guys who is shaving his chest. Sorry you are not for me. Especially when that hair starts to grow back and there is stubble. No thank you! I can't touch on this topic without sharing a story from about 6 or so years ago. The BFF CP was living in Austin for the summer, we were still in college and I was in Houston for the summer and she was working in Austin as an intern for Texas Monthly. So I came up to see CP and paint the town red and man did we. We went to some bars and were served heavily. We ended up at a bar that's name escapes me and I am sure has been renamed since. There at that bar I fell in love...well for an evening. I can't tell you his name I can only tell you that CP put up with me and was there to witness the wonderfulness that I was. Anyway, I am falling in love with my unnamed gentleman and as the drinks continued my actions, well I could not be held responsible for them. The only thing that really stood out in our minds as we look back on this evening was me, twirling the love of my life for the evening's chest hair. Yes this happened in public and I am here owning up to it publicly. I twirled chest hair in public. CP loves to remember this story and what a team player she was and how she had late night with the cab driver, a whole different story. Maybe my love for chest started then or maybe this was just the moment I went public with it and realized I was not opposed to some chest hair. How am I still single you may ask? Well it is the same question I ask myself every night as well! And yes, Chuck Bass just exudes sexiness!
I was looking through the latest Pottery Barn catalogue today planning designing dreams for my little abode with the money I don't have and I came across a picture of a quilt hanging on the wall which lead me to think about something I have always wondered, who considers this an acceptable piece of art? Or who thought this was a good idea and did it at their own home. If years in the future any of you see me doing this in my own house please make me refer back to this blog entry. That and kick. If any of my readers have this look currently going in their house I apologize if I have offended you and please let me know the reason behind this madness.
When I saw that Jennifer Aniston's latest movie was a flop, it made me wonder what was her last movie that wasn't a flop? People keep hiring her but I don't feel like she is really justifying her paycheck. Let me say, I did not care enough about this actual topic to do some research and figure out exactly how much she is making per movie but at what point do the director realize she is not worth the 3-4 million she is probably getting paid per movie. I'm just saying, we loved you on Friends but since then what have you done other than ended up on the cover of tabloids for always getting your heart broken and being single. That or your killer body. Kudos my friend!
Someone else not justifying their paycheck, The Situation. He is set to make 5 million this year. I mean really?!?!? I guess I have to give his people credit for striking while the iron is hot because we know in about 2 years he is going be doing nothing. Sounds like he is getting endorsements while also getting $60,000 an episode for Jersey Shore. That is a crazy amount money. I am pretty sure my shooting stars on One Tree Hill are not making that per episode and we know that show has been on forever. I also hope he has a financial advisor so he invests this money properly and doesn't spend all of it GTLing.
I had love for you in middle school, or was it high school. I remember asking for one of your purses in red and it was classic and perfect. I also had a wallet by you that I loved until I spilled a drink in my purse and it was ruined as well as my cell phone and camera. We broke up during college and a bit post college but I find myself coming back to you now. Now it is not so much the purses as your amazing shoes and clothing. I waited months and months for these purples heels to go on sale before I bought them because they might be some of the most fab. shoes I have ever seen. I mean look at them. Now I have come across this particular dress as well and feel like I must add it to my wardrobe. At the price tag of $355 it won't be getting added anytime soon since I am working on my debt but I will continue to check the website every week to see if and when it goes on sale. I emailed items that I loved by you to my BFF CP one day and I think she asked why I didn't just link her to the whole site because that is how many items I included. Your design as well as your color choices are impeccable. Please keep up the good work. Oh and yes, I do love the color purple
