I Smell a Threat

I just recieved this little message via Facebook:

"I better make an appearance on Deacon DC this week, I'm sure you can find a synonym for Uber. Glad we got to celebrate Turkey Day with you!"

My dear, you shall make an appearance when you learn to spell Dekan the right way.

phonics covered kisses,
your favorite cousin-in-law

Early Evening Text Message

"Um, my friend and I just had lunch with Tommy Lee. No big whoop."

which was immediately followed by me textingba million (inappropriate) questions.

No Turkeys Were Harmed in the Making of these Skits

Black Friday has Landed

Enough said. Get over your turkey hangover and out there shopping.
Rue14 is having a big Black Friday sale, so show some love to our local DC retailers.
That said, I am heading over to the Banana outlet to shop-it-up. Then going to see the movie Twilight.
As my boo would say, "A nice little Friday."

Black Friday is Almost Here

Black Friday commercials are on full-scale rotation. Kohl's at 4am, Walmart at 5am, Target at 6am. By 7am I would be tripping and have to bounce. Then again, part of me secretly wants to be at Kohl's at 4am just to see who is there.

Snag Some Tights

It's snowing in Ohio... which has me wanting to bundle up in warmth and coziness and not move from the couch. Oh wait, that is exactly what I have been doing. But should I go outside, would I look ridic in ripped tights? Let's be honest, I have come home at 3am after a long night in snagged tights at least once or twice in my day, but never on purpose.

Can't Get Enough of This Song

Blue Sky Black Death - Shoot You Dead

Early Morning Priorities

In an hour they will be cutting my foot open and removing my pretty little broken bone. And all I can think about is that I can't wait for it to be over so I can get a coffee and bagel.

early morning kisses,

Poke It to Me

Last night I did something I have been wanting to do for years. I got acupuncture. I will admit that I was oddly excited to go and have needles stuck in me. And I am still oddly excited to go back and do it again.
The jury is still out on whether or not Dr. Liang fixed the pinched nerve in my shoulder. But he did rub hot stones on my neck and shoulders and anyone who knows me know that the shoulder game is a quick way to my heart.

No Animals Were Harmed in the Making of This Bag

Last night, as we were tumbling out of the elevator after girls night, a great discovery was made. My beloved new blue bag is an immitation. Here I thought the little guy was made of leather, until two friends told me that Matt and Nat is a vegan line.

Looks like I now have two new leading men in my life... Matt and Nat. Who knew vegan could be so sexy.

McQueen Sneak Peek

A little something to warm you up on this cold, cold morning -- a sneak peek at McQueen's line for Target. (everything but the shoes in the second picture. If Target were to actually sell those it would be just too, too perfect)
What do you think? Too much for middle America?

Weekend Happenings

Looking for some good sales, fashion doings and other happenings this weekend? Click here to read my suggestions.

kisses for friday,

Why We Watch GG

Because one of my favorite things to do is gather on the couch with my friends, doug and snacks

Because Blair's hair is morphing from light on top to dark on bottom... and not in a good way

Because Little J wears more eyeliner than any 80's hair band combined

Because you never know what bad shirt Rufus will have on next

Because Dan is annoying, Chuck is annoyingly sexy and I am annoyed if I don't get my weekly fix.

These are the reasons I heart the show.

Meet the Facehunter

I just dicovered the Facehunter, who is a bit like The Sartorialist, but not really. The Facehunter has a much more "everyday person" vibe to it. And not to mention lots and lots of pretty people in pretty clothes that make you oooh and aaahhh and sort of sigh out loud.

Skull Dress

Wish I had seen this dress during my 'skull era'. It would have been perfect!

Attack of the Fashion Turban

I completely forgot that I got into a conversation about the fashion turban last night at dinner until I turned on my blackberry this morning and saw the picture that I had pulled up to show her as an example.Remember lovies, friends don't let friends wear fashion turbans.

(My Week) By the Numbers

5 nights in nyc

3 days of RACie judging

1 expensive shopping trip to Century 21

The Countdown Begins

What are you doing Saturday night? Going to Rock n Roll Hotel to help 2 of my favorite people celebrate their birthdays of course. Not only is it one of the best spots in town, but the best people in town will all be there to dance the night away.

Don't be late!

Blue Purse But Not Blue Mood

This weekend I found the perfect blue leather purse. Which my sister wants to steal. She can live with her fancy dancy diaper bag while I rock my sweet, sweet arm candy.
Today was a long day, and I am laying in my hotel bed ready to sleep so that I can wake up and do it all over again. Such a great trip... details later.

Target's Grey Kinsey Boot

I probably shouldn't be sharing my secret, but I am terrible like that. While visiting my parents I spotted a pair of grey knee-high boots on a girl and gapsed! They looked like the Frye's I had been crushing on. The girl admitted they were from Target... and only $34!!! A few minutes later my sister called me through the store to look at the same boots on the same girl. "I know! Target!" I exclaimed.

As we were walking out of voting this morning I spotted them on a girl in line and not-so-discreetly pointed and drooled. And in 2 weeks the same pretty grey boots will be delivered to my door.

If there is one steal of the season, these are it. Trust me... mommy knows!

Election Day Continues

Today when you get upset because your meeting ran late, or Starbucks is taking too long to make your coffee or someone bumps into you on the street, think about all of the couples in California who are spending the day wondering if their marriage will still be valid tomorrow.

Kind of puts it all into perspective, huh?
(and to the newlyweds, your marriage will ALWAYS be valid!)

lots of kisses,

Put a girl in a wig and there is no saying what will come out of her mouth.
Hope your Halloween was just as great!
