darling, what would make you happy today?

{brady blazer at planet blue}

a dvf sequined blazer in your signature color? yes, please.


...for sunny days.

...for being able to drag my non-motivated-for-most-of-2010 self to the gym every day this week.

...for my beautiful madre who is coming for a visit today. i need hugs and attention.

...for trader joes fat free bean burritos and salsa. ah-mazing stuff.

...for supportive husbands with wives who are over-emotional for no apparent reason.
{side note: tears were shed over michael jackson songs on the radio this morning. i mean, it is the anniversary of his death, but still.}

...for friends who are getting married and letting me help. its like they know wedding blogs are my obsession.

...for friday. enough said.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

office pranks.

{remnant of said prank}

so far today...
had a delicious buffet breakfast
i have had my co-worker cut my hair
listen to a straight man sing 'mamma mia'
and watched him dance with a pom pom
played a beautifully executed prank
had a canine office companion for the day
and been productive all the same time.

i love my job.

dear traffic,

you lied to me.
you told me that when school got out you wouldn't be so bad.
that i could get through the fall, winter and spring
solely based on the promise that for three whole months
i wouldn't be forced into a bad place so early in the morning.
traffic, i don't think we can be friends any longer.

side note: how jealous are you guys of atlanta traffic right now, isn't this insane?

why my husband is a saint.

last night...
while watching the mtv awards,
and after three glasses of pinot grigio
i saw the guy from harry potter win an award
and was inspired to talk in a british accent
for the remainder of the evening...

i am sure that wasn't annoying at all.

guess what husband brought home for me ce soir...


images from the weekend...

i clearly love my hipstamatic. oh, and the lake house. and birthdays too i guess.

note to self...

the older you get...
the more candles on your cake...
the more likely you are to catch your hair on fire...
and come close to being a bald thirty year old.

(thank god for small miracles...and family members who think
capturing this on film is more important than putting a fire out of my hair)
