Tuesday is the new Monday...

It's been a rough morning already. The come down from such a happy (three day) weekend of celebration is rough. Sunday was a day filled with celebrating the marriage of such a great couple (my cousin peter to grace) and our engagement and now I'm back to work. And it's underwhelming to say the least. 

At least I've got two four day weeks in a row....the longest four days weeks EVER!

In order to prevent this post up from being a massive downer I'd like to show you the following video.

On our way out of Sunnyvale we stopped to get Chris some new tires at Costco...while we waited we found a shady patch of grass and plopped ourselves and Indy down. There must have been an accident at the construction site in the Costco parking lot because there were fire trucks and ambulances that started filing in....and when Indy hears sirens........well, it's just adorable.

Hey...guess what?

So remember that hot date I mentioned? Well.....turns out it was the best hot date a girl could ask for....Couldn't have been more perfect....and couldn't have had a more perfect ending. My cheeks hurt from smiling so much. 


We're engaged!!

I don't think I've ever been this happy.

5 Years Ago Today.

5 years ago today Chris and I decided to stop fooling ourselves that we were just friends and made the whole dating thing official. I would have never imagined back in 2004 that we would end up owning a house and a dog together...really weird. It's been an amazing five years and and I'm excited for my hot date tonight! 
Indy's pretty happy we ended up together too.

This has got to be some kind of joke....

Years ago I had a conversation with a friend about fashion and how trends are cyclical (I know, fascinating) and we wondered whether the 80's would come back. I assumed that like most fashion trends from by gone eras some of the key pieces that could blend easily into modern styles would make a come back, but truly dated things like giant hair sprayed bangs, heat sensitive shirts and MC Hammer pants would stay firmly where they belonged. I may have been wrong. This may only be true of Los Angeles where most people are fashion sheep, but I am consistently shocked and appalled at some of the things I've seen people wearing. 

On a related sidenote, I subscribe to the daily email "Daily Candy" which sends out emails regarding new restaurants, bars, stores and trends based on your location. I've found Daily Candy to be hit or miss in terms of my own personal style, but have discovered some of my favorite restaurants and bars through these emails and have gotten some great gift ideas from the style geared posts. 

Today, however, my faith in Daily Candy plummeted and I lost a lot of respect for the publishers when I was alerted to the existence of...the Cap Sac. 

The 80's... in all their neon fanny pack glory....are back.

And it's not pretty.


Let me break it down for you.....it's a shapeless nylon cap...with a zippered pouch....on your head. I swear to god if I see one asshole (like these assholes) in LA wearing this I'll smack it off his/her useless face and send them back to the midwest, where this monstrosity belongs. What's that you say? It's ironic? No. It's stupid and you look stupid in it.

Visit their website! It's here www.cap-sac.com. Go ahead. Give them hits! It's funny! But know that every time you buy one of these offensive pieces of crap, a puppy dies.

Daily Thought

Mixed CDs are like flowers. Everyone wants to get them, but if you have to ask for it it's not as fun to get.

Single girl behavior.

Chris is gone this weekend for a bachelor party and I've been left to my own devises. I'm not sure what I'll spend the weekend doing, but it's been made quite clear to me that my "to do" list better include cleaning my side of the closet and putting away the giant pile of clothes that has gathered on the ottoman in our bedroom. Some habits die hard. 

There are any number of things that I will do this weekend with my singledom. I think my list will include napping, singing loudly to either chick rock or country (or both) and getting a massage. Maybe even eating cereal for every meal. mmmm..... Number one on my list, though,  is sleeping in the middle of the bed. 

Listen to me...running on about all these plans. Aren't I ambitious. I think what is more likely to happen is a lot of watching episodes of Bridezillas or getting sucked into marathons of I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant. Let's hope I'm more productive than that.
