Suburban Sweetheart understands me.
My friend Diandra suggests: Be Amazing.
According to TheHill.com, the “Most Beautiful” person on Capitol Hill is a married, 25 year old Republican. Also, Michele Bachmann is #10, instantly leaving me shaking my head. I swear I can hear the entire city of Los Angeles laughing.
The word “obsessed.” I hate it. Overused. Say “I’m into” or “I love” or anything. Just not obsessed, ok?
There are presently 297 items related to Robert Pattinson for sale on Etsy, and 285 items for Kristen Stewart. This one is terrifying. Is this item (below) Rob or George Michael (or their scary offspring could two men reproduce)?
I may have nightmares about this, um, tribute to Kristen. HOLD ME!
Today marked eight weeks since I broke my ankle. I’m at my wits’ end. Doctor’s appointment tomorrow. I’m hoping to be out of the boot but recognize that the recovery time for my injury is estimated at a minimum of eight to twelve weeks. Will you wish me luck?
From the country that brought us Hello Kitty…3D nails!
Not surprisingly, I found these on Etsy.
I love Etsy, and also Regretsy.
But sometimes I poke around and have a photo catch my eye that makes me ask “what part of the things pictured are for sale?”
Do you ever get the feeling that if you could just find/do/accomplish this one thing, your life would be instantly awesome? That’s how I feel right now about finding a sofa table or console to go behind my couch like in the photo below.
The sofa table of my desires continues to elude me. I sent a private message to this Etsy seller Recycled Brooklyn asking for a quote on a custom table. No reply. My guess is that his business is that strong. Good for him, if so.
This console is nice too (and reasonably priced) but the sellers are in the DC area. Shipping would just about double the cost of the item. I’m trying to find something in the tri-State area.
In case you’re hunting for a console too, here are others I have spotted:
In December, I read about BurlyBeard.com in InStyle’s gift guide. I knew I was too late for Christmas but thought one of the kid-sized hats would make a terrific gift for a kiddo I know who is experiencing his first cold winter. I’ll be giving him one of these soon:
Fab.com sent a newsletter recently touting Beardo as the “only bearded beanie.” It’s not true (and I prefer the BurlyBeard style), but as the saying goes, your mileage may vary.
Love this. Via Ashley G.
I’m not going to say I’m obsessed with cowboy boots. That phrase…I just don’t like it.
