What I’m Eating Wednesday

I know, right?

Tough. This is for my future reference so feel free to move along as I stumble along here trying to figure it all out. The eating clean was great, and I felt so much better! Until, I didn’t. I thought I would just need to tweak things after I got used […]

She’s Crafty – She’s Just My Type

Sickly again so it was another weekend at home. Thankfully, the Dirty Hippie is crafty and willing to travel! So she spent the weekend with us to watch too many movies (Dune, Incredibles, Harold & Maude, the second season of Extras) and working on a couple of sewing projects. It was a fun weekend. Our […]

Tour Of Places Where Bad Decisions Are Made

Me: I am going to get a tattoo on my birthday! My Dad: Where’s your birthday?

1. The Painted Pony: A Tattoo Parlor in Anderson, South Carolina. Ben has always loved Norse mythology (which when you’re dating me means you get large tomes about Norse mythology and runes as gifts.) He decided he wanted to […]

“Almighty TiVo, We thank you for all the gifts you have given us. The power to freeze live TV to go take a leak is nothing short of god-like…but if you malfunction and miss the Super Bowl, we will destroy you in the alley with baseball bats.”

1. For my villain costume I’m wearing a blonde wig which I look *horrid* in. After consulting with a friend I bought taupe eyebrow powder, whore red lipstick, and bronzer to counter-effect that blonde hair should never be framing a face with my complexion. Everything worked really well ….. except the taupe eyebrow powder doesn’t […]

This week in Llew Covets

This week in Llew Covets is sponsored by Urban Outfitters I can’t justify spending $70 on a belt but I wants my preciousssss

Reduce, Reuse, Reanimate.

1. I went to the dentist this morning where I had the apocalyptic dental hygienist from Hell. Evidently, I should be on a government watch list because that’s just how suspicious my number 27 is! And you might want to set up a three foot perimeter around me so no one is standing too close […]


Damn you Victoria Secret sales! I saw these delicious boots for under $50 and I had to nab them: in brown. Nothing like new shoes to bound me out of a depression! (And also a red cashmere v-neck sweater, also on sale, which I could not resist.)


Don’t Call It A Comeback I’ve Been Here For Years

I had the most fantastic vacation ever. Of course, because there must be an equal and opposite reaction to everything good in my life I have been most miserable since I’ve returned. Yet again, I have poison ivy on my knees. This time it’s so bad that I can’t actually straighten out my legs. I […]

Orange knees are better than red knees

While playing paintball, not only did I have a good time but I also got a good dose of poison ivy ON MY KNEES. Right in time for my brother’s wedding – my life is awesome! After a week of suffering, I give up. I think I’m just going to order me a pair of […]

“McLovin sounds like a sexy hamburger.”

A while ago the adorable Black Apple posted about wearing clothes originally intended for pajamas (in this case nightgowns) as everyday wear. I thought – oh I do that all the time. Then, I realized there was a big difference. She wears nightgowns that look like cute little dresses, and I wear pajama tops under […]
