10 Questions

Thursday, April 16, 2015
1.  Why are sweet potato fries just now popular?  Where were they in 1986?  I ate sweet potatoes in 1986.

2.  And on that note, where did Kale come from.  I never heard of it until about 5 years ago and I am not a young person.

3.  Just who is Stan Smith?

4.  What does it all mean?  Ok, I threw this one in to make sure you are paying attention.  But seriously...?

5.  Is my love of fashion for good or for evil?

6.  Would you have any Grey Poupon?  If so, you might want to make these.  Yum!

7.  How is Murphy's Law a real thing?  It is so true!

8.  Why can't The Walking Dead come on all year long with a new episode EVERY single Sunday?

9.  How can Motherhood be so amazing and so scary at the same time?  I am in awe at the amount of love I have for my son but with that comes lots of worry!

10.  Can I keep my son in a bubble (literally and figuratively)?  See #9.

Totes rand, I know, but these are the kinds of things I think about.

Spring Shoe Roundup

Friday, April 10, 2015
I get obsessive about a lot of things.  I think that's why I never smoked crack.  I would've have certainly become a crackhead.  And then I would not have been able to afford my shoe habit.  And I am currently obsessed with criss-cross sandals (see how I did that there?).  Something about the cut of the cross on the vamp really flatters my little sausage toes.  And that is important to me, b/c I cannot have busted looking toes.  Otherwise, I would just cover them up always and that would not be fun.  So to celebrate how amazing criss-cross sandals look on my feet, I wanted to share with you my roundup of some super cute styles I've been eye-balling.  I bet they will look good on your feet too.  Even if you have a raptor toe.  Maybe.

The closest I came to a nice Easter meal.  Shrimp and Grits at Breadwinners
Organization Success in the bathroom!  I used a Stainless Steel Lazy Susan for my perfume and this cute 3 Drawer Vanity Organizer for makeup.
Ulta Haul - reviews coming soon.
Loved reading about old Black & White Hollywood - my girlfriend found this great book at a garage sale (A World Of Movies: 70 years of Film History)!
