"i double dare you..."

" drive home In your halloween costume
just in cAse you get pulled over by a cop
just so we can hear the story of what his face looked like when he came to your window."
these are the words that were said to Me after the fitting of the century
to perfect the costume i have been working On for...oh...about the last 365 daysso i gathered my team (mommy l, jt and lulu belle)
and we went to worK to make sure everything fit just right
my only Wish Is that There had been someone video taping us as we went to work because tHe things that were said, secrets that were shared=priceless

but after a few hours of pOking, sticking, taping, hemming, ripping and chalking
taaa is Unbelievably perfecT
You will just have to wait til Old hollow's eve for the results
i can't wait.
**special thanks to lUlu belle for her sowing machine**

it's a love story, baby just say yes

well lovelies, we have all heard it
(you know...that song on the radio that never gets old to scream along with at the top of your lungs)
good news:
this week the platinum edition of [this] cd came out?!?
go and buy it. go go go. right now. i promise you won't regret it
every single one of the six new songs is amazing
and then open it up to the credits and read this:

"To me FEARLESS is not the absence of fear, it's not being completely unafraid. To me FEARLESS is having fears. FEARLESS is having doubts. Lots of them. To me FEARLESS is living in spite of those things that scare you to death. FEARLESS is falling madly in love again, even though you've been hurt before. FEARLESS is walking into your freshmen year of high school at fifteen. FEARLESS is getting back up and fighting for what you want over and over again...even though every time you've tried before, you've lost. It's FEARLESS to have faith that someday things will change. FEARLESS is having the courage to say goodbye to someone who only hurts you, even if you can't breathe without them. It think it's FEARLESS to fall for your best friend, even though he's in love with someone else. It's FEARLESS to say "you're NOT sorry," and walk away. I think loving someone despite what people think is FEARLESS. I think allowing yourself to cry on the bathroom floor is FEARLESS. Letting go is FEARLESS. Then, moving on and being alright...that's FEARLESS too. But no matter what love throws at you, you have to believe in it. You have to believe in love stories and prince charmings and happily ever after...Because I think love is FEARLESS."

just another reason why she is my favorite

here comes the bride

okay so i am a girl
i have even been accused once or twice for being [too girly]
(i know i know...shocker)
so even though i am far far away from that journey down the aisle with prince charming
i am the girl always on the lookout for the perfect dress
(i mean let's be realistic, this is not the day for a fashion faux paux)

so when i saw [this dress] earlier this year
i thought it was def the one i would choose to be recreated for moi
until this one arrived...dear ivanka,
do you think i could steal your beyond gorgeous and perfect fashion sense
just for one day??
i promise i will then give it back.
xoxo, moi

let us have a moment of silence

(camilla belle)
for this dress
yes i know it is a few years old
but as i was scanning through my pictures today i discovered that i had saved this because it was just overwhelmingly gorgeous
the color, the cut, the perfection on a red carpet

pure bliss

that is what this picture is

nighty night little lovelies

all for the yellow and black

i have yet to take a pic of myself with the hairstyle
but this is the photo i took to the salon yesterday
trying to describe to her what i wanted

if you follow me on [facebook]
you already know i am slightly traumatized by it
the things i do for my fav fav super fav holiday

Tuesday, October 13, 2009

i guess it is time to recognize

it has taken me a few days to report this news
because i have been living in a little land called denial and quite comfortable there

i thought the first date was maybe a drunken mishap
(we all know my girl is no angel)
or maybe just the air that surrounds fashion week in grand ol' paris
(trust me...i've been there...that city is magic)

but the M word is now being thrown around and i am forced to accept that my fav girl

is dating a psycho

this is truly a tragedy
i mean just look at those ballerina tight skinny jeans

what the world is missing

honest, caring, loving, sincere friendships
i have a few in my life
and as i was sitting in the big comfy chair getting a pedi w/ the 3 besties, i kept wondering what i ever did to get so lucky?

(a little blurry but nonetheless perfect)

favorite friday

this is the sweater my mom gave me for christmas and i set to the side from all the other gifts that year because it was not my favorite
this was the sweater i shoved into my suitcase at the last minute before moving to scotland because i missed my mom before i even stepped foot on the plane
this is the sweater i wore when i fell in love with paris
this is the sweater i wore along the rainy cobblestone streets of a tiny town in switzerlandthis is the sweater i wore every night to bed in edinburgh
this sweater was wrapped around my shoulders as i sat on the sidelines of a tennis match at wimbledonthis is the sweater i haven't worn since i moved back because it still smells like scottish laundry detergent...and i don't want that to ever change
this is my comfy, semi-ragged, needs to be ironed, slightly bedazzled favorite sweater
that holds with it the best 4 months of my life.

so i cried

monday my boss broke the news that i needed to get a flu shot
she must have seen my eyes widen like the great depths of despair because she immediately said she would go with me
trying to save myself some dignity i pretended it would all be okay and i could go by myself
apparently i would win the razzie for my performance because a co-worker of mine volunteered to take me and make sure i didn't pass out
on the way over i warned him that i do not handle needles very well
so when the shaking, turning pale and tears started
i couldn't feel bad because i had given fair warning
i survived
and the next morning my boss handed me this

i really really love her.

thank goodness for big sisters

it's always nice to get an email from your big sis
that begins a little something like this:
(in response to a frantic email sent by moi this my defense i was going on 3 hours of sleep)


God might not have given me a biological sister,
but He sure did put the right person in my life at the right time...who was perfect for the job.

the new loves of my life

i couldn't even wait until favorite friday to show you these
aren't they beautiful?!?

i think i described them to [bff E] as:
victoria's secret fashion show perfection

can't you just imagine heidi strutting her stuff in december wearing these?
i can, thank you.

i have had a crappy 48 hours

luckily [these gals] can read me like a newspaper and realized an intervention was necessary

so j and j took this slightly down lil j to dinner
and ice cream for a much needed girls night out/catch up session

quote to describe the night:
"it's hard to find people who will love you no matter what...
i was lucky enough to find [two] of them"
carrie bradshaw

i feel 99% better already.

just so you know...

my answer would be different
if you asked me...again

Friday, October 2, 2009

favorite friday

favorite...pair of shoes
(aka: the 22nd bday party moulin rouge shoes)

i have a lot of shoes, this is not news to anyone who knows me
people often ask which is my favorite pair?
and as the loving mother that i am
i respond: none, i love them all

that is a lie if i have ever told one
these lovlies are the winners
i have only ever worn them once, so if you ever see them on my feet again you will know it is a special day

thank you [ms. johnson] for your fab flair for footwear
