And Now For Something Completely Different...

Chihuahuas in wigs.


Because it's funny.

So there.

Rain Rain, Go Away...


Ahem. If it continues to rain every freakin' day here in Dallas, I will be forced to purchase a pair of these pink Hunter wellies...

I might just buy them anyway, just to spite the weather.

After randomly discovering this Vogue cover, I have now decided that in my next life, I want to be Penelope Cruz.

And I want to wear that dress every day.

It's Friday!!!

Don't know what to do this weekend??? Rest assured, I've got plenty of ideas...

Spend some time with a friend...

Take a nap.

Go for a swim.

Or just relax and be happy it's the weekend!

Whatever you do, enjoy your weekend!

So as most of ya'll know, my bestest buddy moved back to Missouri at the beginning of June *sob*.

And since I miss her so much, I'm going to see her this weekend for the first time since she moved - yay!

Above: a montage of what our weekend is certain to entail....

Grandma Said...

My grandmother, smartest woman alive, always told us, "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all".

That is the one piece of advice (out of many she has given me over the years), that I have steadfastly ignored since childhood...

But you know what? I'm going to cut Tori some slack today and remain silent, because... well, just look at the picture below.

*Ok, I can't resist. Pocahontas called. She wants her boots back.

(Don't tell Grandma I said that)

I Love the 80's...

Gosh, Joan Collins is fabulous. Just look at that ruff collar! And the big hair! And the bright lipstick!


Leopard print. Love it. Le sigh.


Would you wear a bright, 80's-inspired outfit like Joan?

Yeah, Really.

These birds, found in the Galapagos Islands are really called Blue Footed Boobies.

Am I the only one who finds this hysterically funny?

Oh Dear.

Newlywed Husband bought me a wii Sunday - such a sweet husband!!!

The only problem?

I'm never going to get anything else done.

I'm ashamed to say that I spent almost 4 hours last night (while waiting for Newlywed Husband to get home from work at 9:45pm) playing this:

...and this.

Hello, my name is Newlywed Wife, and I'm addicted to wii.

P.S. Please pass the tylenol, my forearms feel like they got run over by a bus.

Winston and I just ran (sprinted) a mile this morning.

Nope, you didn't mis-read that, yours truly ran. And there wasn't even a shoe sale.

Pardon me while I go die now.

Cool + Casual


It's too hot to wear jeans... and too FRIDAY to wear an office dress...

Here's what I came up with this morning (in all of 2 1/2 minutes, thankyouverymuch) as a casual Friday compromise :)

This pic of Zooey Deschanel from the new Instyle almost makes me want to get bangs again.

You're so Punny.

I followed this big guy for about 20 minutes on my commute this morning.

As this was pre-coffee, it took me about 19 out of the 20 minutes to figure out why this truck is funny...

Get it?
