life is short (but sweet for certain)

Not much in the mood to write anything.

Memory is a way of holding onto the things you love, the things you are, the things you never want to lose. The Wonder Years

My heart goes out to my friends and their family members during this sad time. To quote Emily Dickinson, “Unable are the loved to die, for love is immortality." XOXO & ITB.

everyone loves a slanket

If she wasn't already my best friend, this post listing things you can do in a slanket would, at the very least, motivate me to begin stalking her on the internet. Not that I think you should stalk her on the internet. Stalking is generally super creepy. But you should add her to your blogroll/reader because she's hilarious and has a subscription to Skymall (I had no idea you could find that magazine outside of an airplane!).

Let the slanketeering begin!

retro living guides: who did it better?

Shock therapy is usually #1 on my to-do list...other than that I totally relate to A Lady's Guide to Throwing a Party.

Favorite line: "Address cats by their full name, but dogs as 'Mr.' and then their dog name. Because cats are girls and dogs are boys."

For Halloween I was Betty Draper, which was more a convenience costume than anything else since I: 1. have a similar hair color/style 2. have a ton of vintage-style dresses 3. love pretending to drink and smoke. Twin went as a cupcake, which was also a convenience costume since she is usually dressed like a cupcake.
