Enjoy friends…. this is where I’ve been for a year. Btw the top is Kate Spade, I’m wearing it to remind myself of the days I used to wear actual clothing.
Actual adult shit
Has it been like 9 months since I posted? Where did time go? Why am I so busy? Well, between turning 40, planning endless birthday / HOA/ PTA/ dinner party events, shuttling my children hither and yon, gaining and losing the same 10 lbs over and over and a nice casual homicide trial…. mama has…
Vindaloo for Meee & Yoooo, or My Quest to Make (edible) Indian Food at Home
The biggest mistake I was making in my horror-story curry was using “curry spice” which is NOT A THING. The restaurants you love are not cooking with a bag of orange dust.
When life gives you lemons get some vodka
I’ve had a bitch of a week at work and finally got to the gym this morning (Yea!) and when I got to the gym realized I had left my work clothes at home (Boo!) and had only a sports bra and leggings. To wear to court (Fuck!). Luckily Target opens at 8am so…
A Mom on vacation is still a Mom. Wearing multiple layers and cooking in Iceland. The sun has already gone down at 4pm– and it didn’t come up until 10am. Brrrrr. I’m not making puffin, if you’re wondering….
Grocery store is not code for ‘wear sweatpants’
My rants against the slobbification of America are legendary. Flip flops are for the beach. Fleece pants are for being in your house with a cold. Oversized cartoon tee shirts are for never. see? Buying Halloween swag and some milk while not looking like I live in a van. Blouse, Ella Moss, velvet blazer I’ve…
We don’t wear gowns enough and other deep thoughts
today is my 10th wedding anniversary so I pulled the dress out of storage and wore it to pick the husband up at the airport. 1. We don’t wear gowns enough. Gowns are fucking great. 2. My dress still fits #winning 3. If you go into the bathroom at Wendy’s near the airport to pee…
After many long, angry months, the kitchen is done. I baked some bread. Then I ate the bread. Totally worth it.
You can’t be sad on a swing
Everything is still generally terrible (don’t read the news, ever) but it’s spring and there’s flowers and a swing set. This flamenco-dancer sparkle day skirt doesn’t hurt either….
Heels + grass = suburban Godzilla lady
After work (yes I wore a cardigan with the dress in court, I’m not a heathen!) I was in my yard looking for tulips like one does. My new Alexander Wang heels are now muddy but I have this awesome shot where I look like I’m going to go eat some villagers.
Spring break 2017 is a far cry from, say, Spring Break 2000. Both involved some real weird shit- the 2000 version was a beer bong and possibly homicidal pizza delivery man ( long story). In 2017, we have a visit to Meow Wolf, an multiverse art installation with eyeball trees and refrigerators that lead to…
On Wednesdays We (Still) Wear Pink
Lurking in my aging body beats the heart of the girl who made ‘fashion violation’ tickets with her bitchy friends and gave them out in high school. Mean girls forever!
