Tumblr being blocked at work causes me to not know what’s happening on the internet. I miss you all. I watched a tiny bit of the Oscars last night and then played video game Trivial Pursuit with my husband for two hours. And I liked it. I won 2/3 so that helps. He can not touch me in Will Smith movie titles, I reign supreme. I made chocolate cupcakes and peanut butter icing with this...
Smitten Kitchen Never Steers Me Wrong
I made this tonight. LOVE.
A spoon full of sugar helps the medicine go down
itsalwaysb: pointlessinformation: When I was little I hated taking medicine when I was sick. My parents got creative and crushed up the children’s Tylenol and put it in a pixie stick True Story. And props for my parents being that creative. My sister caught them - she knew pure sugar when she tasted it and that was NOT pure sugar. I, on the other hand, thought my sister was so weird for...
One of my favorite baby photos. Oh hey, there’s my button. Favorite photo of myself this weekend. Caught off-guard with my bahamian beer. I’m super white and my hips/thighs don’t lie. Whatever. I’m hott. Two t’s. My favorite photo of myself ever.
The Fault In Our Stars
Since I had 4 extra hours to kill at the airport on Friday I downloaded this much tumblr-talked about novel. I finished it as we took off and I’m sure the people around me thought I was terrified of flying since I was brushing away tears for what seemed like forever. I tried to convince my friends that they NEED to read this book, but they seemed a little doubtful about my taste in novels...
Bruno would like you to know, it's Brun Time.
Combination: Drink, time, handwriting, and something you hate to do. Note the file folder of bill-related items. I’d take a picture of my pile of folded laundry that’s waiting for me to put it away (my most hated chore), but judging from my dash that’s been done quite enough.
I'm home and unpacked and only slightly sun...
Sigh. This weekend was lovely.
Girlfriend Getaway 2012 has turned into have your husband and best friends/cruisemates talk you down from the brink of an anxiety attack over and over as your flight is delayed multiple times leaving you with a very small window to actually get on the boat 2012.
Roses & Thorns
Thorns: We just had our network changed at work. Tumblr is no longer accessible. I cried a million silent tears. Roses: Tomorrow starts Girlfriend Getaway 2012! I also received what might be the best compliment of my life from my poetry instructor: Love the title and the stanza breaks…and the poem itself: wonderful. Am wondering if you are in fact a famous poet taking the workshop as a...

shanamaideleh: kimbaland: I solemnly swear that if/when I get pregnant… I will not make a Facebook-wide announcment. I will not post belly pictures. I will not post sonogram pictures. Eric doesn’t believe me because let’s face it—I’m kinda into social media. But I feel differently about this for some reason…. I will make a Facebook announcement. I’m pretty sure that what I want to do...
When I’m Old Wednesday
When I’m old I’m going to lie about my age. I’ll say I’m ten years older than I am, just to hear how young they think I look.
silverpipes replied to your post: Dear NEPA readers, Fulfill my Valentines Day wish… I remember when they were Old River Road bakery down the street from my house :-( I have eaten three of these cookies already this year, though. Yup! And the red and white waxy bags! True story, the first time I had one after years of thinking they went out of business and were lost to me forever (I...
Dear NEPA readers, Fulfill my Valentines Day wish and get yourself a heart shaped iced cookie (possibly my favorite cookie on the planet) from Boulevard Bakery today. If I can’t enjoy one, you should. Love, Shaba
Roses and Thorns
Thorn: I woke up this morning with a sore throat and a headache. Braved the last minute card/candy shoppers at Rite Aid and stocked up on Zicam, day time meds, Luden’s Great Tasting Throat Drops (i.e. the only cough drop I use because the ones with actual medicine in them are gross), and the worst orange juice I’ve ever had. Never buying Minute Maid again, ick. Roses: My husband is good at making...
Anonymous asked: In proper fashion, you V-day gift will/should be there tomorrow... I swear, the next one will be on time! lol Happy Valentine's Day anyway and hope you get everything you need EVERY DAY!
Meanwhile, over on Pinterest...
shanamaideleh: SHABA! WE NEED TO HAVE THIS CAKE TO GO WITH OUR CAMO DRESSES! Girl, I could show you facebook photos that would break your heart. I swear I’ve seen a smaller version of this cake at the camo+hunter orange playground wedding I stalked a few months ago.

and then this happened It is officially too short to pull back. Looks like this spring will be all about headbands.
lovingourlife replied to your post: I’ve noticed that a lot of men I work around tend… Better or worse than “chick”? In my opinion? Worse. Not as bad as “girl,” or “broad” though. The word female makes me think of an animal, specifically a dog. So then my mind maps to bitch. Why can’t they just say woman?
I’ve noticed that a lot of men I work around tend to refer to women as “females.” I hate it and find it offensive.

1) A few weeks ago on New Girl one of the roommates was renting a party bus for their 29th birthday. I was so confused by the fact that this fictional 29 year old wanted a party bus birthday bash I couldn’t concentrate on the rest of the plot. I’m 25 and I feel like I’m a few years too old for party buses. Maybe I’m just not the party bus type. 2) Last night one of the characters on...
Every time I get an email that the Pippa bag in shark is available again I cry a few tears over the fact that I don’t have an extra 200+ euro lying around. But I keep myself on the email list, just in case I come in to money that’s dog-eared as “Frivolous Hand Bag Spending Allowance.” Consumerist dreams.

I work in a windowless box. And it rained all day. And even though I wanted to be puny and purchase a Mickey D’s hot fudge sundae for today’s photo, I was a good girl and avoided frozen non dairy dessert. sigh. Here’s a photo of the Hawaiian sunset, circa 2009.
When I'm Old Wednesday
When I’m old I’m going to buy a yearly membership to the local theatre, collect playbills, and have my favorite actor/actress of the night sign them. “Ebay,” I’ll say, “For when you’re famous.” *Wink*
