Something I've always wondered
Who was the first asshole who decided to dedicate their windshield to a deceased relative? Like, what the hell is that all about?

Will forever be the summer I discovered sweet potato fries and roasted cauliflower.
Tonight I met my second internet friend. The lovely remarkablelulu joined me at PRESS 626 for half priced wine and yummy sandwiches. To say we got along well would be an understatement— our poor waitress had to come back three times before we even looked at the menu, such chatty cathy’s we were! From our engineer husbands to our Northern roots to our devotion to our doggies, we...
Why We're Married
Scene: Last night, while watching the ridiculous show One Man Army, for the first time, my husband and I hear the host explain the show concept and the prize- $10,000. Shaba: “That seems like a lot of work for $10,000.” Zach: “I was just thinking that! It’s like they’re saying, here we’re going to torture you for a day and at the end, if you win, you can...
well, just call me promiscuous! →
thegirlfromasmalltown: article from the good men project with some survey numbers… needless to say, i don’t agree. True story- I knew girls in high school who had already run out of fingers on which to count their partners. I’m kinda of the opinion that when you need to start counting toes you might want to start re-evaluating some of your life decisions.
The less I have to do every day the less I accomplish.
When I'm Old Wednesday
When I’m old I will always insist on dessert after every meal. And ice cream stops on all long distance car rides. Because, really.
GPOY Wednesday Drinking At Weddings Edition
By the time the wine starts to be poured into the plastic cups there is no chance I’m going to look cute.
Besides, Cowboys and Aliens is on.– This is a fake movie that Ferguson just mentioned on Clarissa Explains It All and now it’s a real thing. Everything’s come full circle. Someone let the people know that Cowboys and Aliens is a movie in the Clarissa universe. (via mykicks) This serves to remind me to DVR the damn 90’s Nick...
This weekend I saw my high school sweetheart for the first time in years. (I swear I’ll stop yapping about this weekend after this post, I do know it’s Tuesday and the rest of the world has moved on.) He was strangely friendly, considering we’ve been playing this sort of “if I don’t acknowledge you, you don’t exist” game on the rare occasion we happen...
I also got an awesome v-neck sunburn, but let's...
Free ice cream at the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix on Sunday.
Things Guaranteed To Make Your Ovaries Explode
Watching your husband hold a squishy baby.
It was probably about 200 degrees on Friday
One of my very best friends got married, outside, on the hottest day of the year. There are not a lot of people I would happily stand in the sun for, but Zach is one of them. Miraculously, my dear friend and his blushing and beautiful bride seemed to stay cool and impossibly gorgeous the entire evening. Must have been those wedding day jitters. Though the entire evening was fantastic and...
When you’re young, you think everything you do is disposable. You move from now...– Margaret Atwood, The Blind Assassin. (via jennabee)
Tumblr overwhelmingly suggested a dark red
So I listened. Big ups to Laney for the essie bordeaux recommendation.
I will not say goodbye to him. He ate my burger. We’re not speaking.– My husband, refusing to say goodbye to the burger thieving dog. In Bruno’s defense, Zach left it on the dining room table when we went across the street to say our goodbyes to a moving neighbor.
You know when you get that itch to do "something"...
That’s where I am right now. Dye it? Cut it? Dye it myself and get a trim? Skip the trim because I always think they take too much off? Go darker? Try highlights? GAH. Hair.
Do your earbuds fall out too?
I did my 4.5 miles run in the Canadian style today. Run 10 minutes, walk 1 minute. I was able to sustain 6.0 mph pace or higher during each running interval, which hasn’t happened in a while. I think I may be a convert. And now I have a gross question. When I get to the really sweaty part of my run, my ears start to sweat and my ear buds fall out. I spend the last half of my run...
Currently in a stand off with my dvd player
I told myself I can not leave the house today until I do this damn NMTZ workout. I have a habit of going to the gym and doing my planned cardio and then completely talking myself out of any strength training by promising that I’ll do NMTZ at home later. I never do it later. I’m just not feeling it lately. I keep up with my half-marathon training runs and do additional cardio at the...
Hahaha Heat free curl method has left me looking like an extra in a ‘80’s exercise video this morning.
Attempting heat free curls

Either you think “Ohmygod, I need to get rid of stuff! Time to reorganize! Throw things away! How much is a dumpster?!” or You think “I am SO much more organized than that person. Look at all this space! I can walk on ALL my floors! I reside in a freakin’ PALACE!”
What color nail polish would you pair with this? Also, necklace or no necklace? edited to add: the dress is from Modcloth
This Weekend I
helped my husband clean and reorganize our garage (a task that’s been on our to-do list since we moved in two years ago) moved the fridge into the breezeway to make room for the soon to be delivered new fridge. This makes meals an adventure. I feel like I have a summer kitchen. Ran 6 miles walked 2 miles with the highly distract-able dog all the laundry made salt&vinegar chip...
calamityshana: cplucked: Is it sad that my favorite part of Sex and the City is when she sees Big driving down the one way and bashes him with her flowers? Um, this is the part that makes me cry the hardest. When he lunges toward her and Charlotte screams “NO!” Ugh. Charlotte gets me every time.
And now to ice frozen broccoli my knees.
The thing I'm most looking forward to at HP 7.2

jennyjennybobenny: One of my coworkers is currently sending out mass Harry Potter emails (I work in that kind of place) and one of them contained this drink menu. Please note the Sirius Black.

I'd like my car back.
The rental place gave me a free upgrade to a huge SUV type jeep vehicle because they didn’t have anything else to give me. Now, not only do I feel like I have to be Extra Super Careful while driving it because we didn’t buy the outlandish 30 dollars a day rental insurance, but I get to be Extra Super Careful in a beast of a vehicle. Lovely.
I made the damn cookies
they are divine, btw.
When I'm Old Wednesday
When I’m old I’m going to be all about whimsy. Especially in my home decor. Bright purple velvet ottoman with rhinestone buttons I found at Ross yesterday? You’re coming home with me in 50 years.
All I really want to do today is make cookies
But given the amount of ice cream and potato chips I’ve consumed over the last few days baking is truly not in the best interest of my thighs.
Today In Gifs
So first I got a fancy Anthro gift card and a notepad from my favorite bosom friend in mail. She’s the Anne to my Diana. So that was very Then I was all doing all the things. Shopping and Dr. Appointments and Being Responsible. I also bought some skirts. They’re pretty. And then I emailed Mr. GiveMeAJobMan because it was taking FOR-EV-ER, like Sandlot, for them to get back...
Finally got a response
Thank you, Talent Acquisition, for allowing me to relax for a while. Also, it’s not cool for dudes in Talent Acquisition to send nice “we’re gonna make you an offer soon” emails and then GO ON VACATION without an Out of Office message set up. Seriously.
Does this exist? It should.

sparkleneely: 1. read shitty books. yes, reading DFW looks really good and makes your brain work and is very good for you but you know what else is fun sometimes? re-reading the collected works of lauren conrad. 2. develop a good relationship with your lady doctor. don’t be annoying…. i need to start keeping that captains log.
Today, at the dermatologist's office
Dr. P. “Well, everything looks good today but keep an eye on things as the years progress. Given your complexion it’s inevitable you’ll be in here for something screwy one day. Wear sunblock.” Got it. Thanks Doc.
Unemployment Daily Thoughts/Activities
Thought: “I’m gonna spend four hours at the gym today! I will be a skinny and buff interview candidate!” Activity: Spend no more than 2 hours at the gym. Mostly walking in circles and talking yourself out of different gym-type activities that don’t involve watching HGTV. Thought:”Today I will eat egg whites, salad, and lean protein. Let’s really hit this out of...
