i'm starting a new feature, starred posts. (the posts i starred in my google reader this week.) so you'll probably see a lot of the same blogs but it'll be fun. obviously i'll work on a name.

Fill in the Blank Friday

1.   I am currently obsessed with the thought of cleaning my house top to bottom, apparently this could be part of the reason that I cannot kick my illness. That's rather alarming. I need to get on a better routine with everything! I'm excited to, hopefully this holds out through the weekend.

2.  Today I am  moody  because, I haven't been all week and it's about time; up and down, productive and lazy, glutinous and ready to stay on track. It can change at a moments notice. I want another carmel latte.

3.  The age I am is 25  and the age I feel is  right now, an immature 25. Sometimes I feel twelve, sometimes I feel 35, but mostly I feel 25. I am who I am and part of that is age. Sometimes I am a giant baby.

4.  My favorite place is  home, because it's lovely and Matt's probably there and the kitties are there and it's cozy. Next to home, I love to be on the lake, any lake.

5.  Something I have been procrastinating is see number one, I've been to icky to tackle it in one big giant clean, so I haven't been doing the basics. ew. (but please know, it's really not horrible, it's just unkempt.)

6.  The last thing I purchased was  a carmel latte and a cinnamon raisin bagel.

7.  The thing I love most about my home is  that it reflects who I am and is filled with love. It may be messy and dusty but it's mine and I love it. It's home.

call to my readers

Hi all, (twelve of you!)

I was answering LA's four questions for her Reader listings and I realized: I have no direction. I blog about random stuff. (Not that I'm apologizing.) The five words I picked as my "theme" were, lists, love, nerd, wishful, random. So what do you like? What would like to see more of? Less of? The call is out... give me feedback. I have readers, so I must be entertaining some of you... I'd like to become a better blogger for you!


P.S. Since I felt this post was kind of naked, here's a pretty toe shot.  I need another one of these SO BAD.

1.   I am sick and so, so sick of it. I try to do everything right, eat healthy, take my vitamins, take (otc) drugs, get enough sleep, even exercise. It feels like I've been sick on and off for two months. ...going to the doctor Monday (she's double booked today). ...going to do my best to enjoy the weekend (baby shower weekend!) getting extra rest, catching up with old highschool friends, snugglin' with m'man, getting caught up on laundry and house work.

2.  The bravest thing I've ever done was move to New York with out knowing anyone.

3.  I feel prettiest when the sun's on my face and my freckles have popped, my hair's pulled back and I'm smiling. 

4.  Something that keeps me awake at night is  daydreams at night, the stuff I'll probably never do but I like to dream about anyway - travelling the world  (all the time), opening a store, and there's the stuff I forget I wanted to do once I get up like really clean my house, finish the laundry, get in my craft room. 

5.  My favorite meal in the entire world is haha, that's not possible to choose, sorry bud - top choices: my spaghetti, matt's spaghetti (totally different) salad with pecans and gorgonzola, a blt, santi's tacos, mom's stir fry, sushi, seriously I love food man. :)

6.  The way to my heart is with love.
7.  I would like to go to sleep tonight, never feel another sore throat again this winter, and get everything crossed off my must do list.

Well, I made it six days with a post everyday, a love centered post at that! But sometimes life get's in the way. Life that includes realizing your boyfriend's favorite comedian is going to be in the state performing at a giant comedy fest and you just have to go!!
a show on friday night with my love.

antiquing and shopping saturday.
(followed by crashing and sleeping 12 hours saturday night. stupid sore throat.)

for the love of cards

thanks to Rachel's blog I realized that I didn't get Matt a card yet. I SUCK. especially since I bought myself a card/vday decoration from Katie Daisy's shop. I think I thought I might give it to him, but then he saw it and that'd be silly. and maybe not really for him. LAME. 

so without further ado I give you: highlights of my etsy card search.

because they're true

because they're funny


just because they're AWESOME

simple, lovely, the final contenders

ps. can i buy myself another one?

impromptu liveblogging - superbowl commercials

if nothing else, watch the Chrysler|Detroit video.

tonight Matt and I are watching the Superbowl - correction we computer clubbing with the Superbowl on in the background - and I was watching the commercials. I decided to liveblogfacebook my thoughts. I will now share these nuggets of wisdom.

what?! the doritos brought grandpa back to life?!! crazy.
Eminem you don't do commercials? You're in two - that I know of. (Lipton Brisk)
Chevy Cruze, that's just creepy and definitely unnecessary. (facebook in the car)
Next year, I propose a giant game of tag for the half time show. This isn't very good.
spontaneously live blogging (facebooking) sb commercials exciting until the commercials start to disappoint. favorites so far: bridgestone & carfax. literal lol.
weird... making penelope cruz look like kiera knightly. cram it in the boot.
adrian, stella. it's love
Nice. Chrysler, Detroit (seriously, watch it.)
seriously, mcd's your commercial wasn't that good in the first place.

Bridgestone! another good one. props to the beaver. 

bless you peppers. sneezing kitty<3 (and i don't even like the baby.

now you. and if you borrow this from my blog - go ahead and link back to her's. i'm just the messenger.
1.   If I could only read one magazine publication for the rest of eternity, I would choose New York magazine, news/social/pop/puzzles. yes please.

2.  If I were to run my own magazine it would be a mix, beautiful photos, accessible fashion, well written stories and news articles, recipes, quotes, a dash of pop culture, puzzles. (hmm maybe this should become my goal with my blog - what would i read in my favorite ideal magazine?)

3.  I buy my magazines via subscribe to NYmag, starting a W subscription, and impulse buy Real Simple/RachelRay

4.  I prefer my magazines definitely in my hand it's the smell and the roll-up-ability, ooh and glossiness.

5.  The number of magazines I buy each month is maybe one extra in addition to my subscriptions. I barely keep up as it is, who am I kidding I don't!

6. My favorite magazine genre is  news/popculture combo.

7.  The magazines I read regularly are NYmag, this feels redundant, sorry. ...occasionally Real Simple, Rachel Ray, Self.
