Must Share

I just ran across the coolest house website. Oddly enough I was googling "Reese Witherspoon" to find a pic of her latest hair cut, and clicked on a stunning picture of her, only to be directed to hookedonhouses.wordpress.com and I've been lovin' it up for the past few hours now.

One of my favorite posts so far is "The Spite House" in Alexandria, Virginia. You must take a gander, it's crazy!

Our first apartment we lived in was an old home just renovated. We LOVED it. All of it. The teeny kitchen, oddly placed shelves, white and green stucco exterior, radiators in each room but ours, and interior french doors. It was charming, and had character.

Our current apartment also scores high in the charming department. More so on the outside since we live in the add on, but either way, I'll take it. I love the character, and have insisted to Tadd on multiple occasions that we must own a home built in the early 1900's, if not earlier. Sure the plumbing and such will be a concern, but I have a handy husband with resources. I just want an old home to love and care for to pieces, more than I can even explain.

This gem of a site has plenty of these old homes I'm referring to, and it's making me homesick. Odd, eh? I don't live in one of them, but want to SO badly.

I feel much better now that I've admitted to this obsession of mine, and I suppose I must keep loving photos of old homes until I can inhabit one of my own. *Sigh*

Smooth Move


I just made the most kick-a smoothie with our freakin' sweet Magic Bullet, thanks to Kris, Kecia and Christmas. You all probably know the kitchen intimidates me, but after reading through the bullet's recipe book, I feel armed and ready!
*
Back to my smoothie, seriously the best. Jamba Juice ain't got nothin' on my bullet. You'll love this:
*
-Two handfuls of frozen berries (I favor blueberries, so a little extra of those)
-Half a banana
-Half a little thingie of Blueberries & Cream Yoplait yogurt
-Four-ish ice cubes
-Splash of orange juice
*
Who wouldn't love those measurements?

Shut Out

Went to my first MLB game in California, ate a Dodger dog like I was supposed to, and watched the Dodgers shut out the D-Backs. Good times.


My hair and Cali don't mix

We had to follow through with tradition and cram as much of whatever Lauren would approve of in her mouth. Whole bag of cotton candy? CHECK!


Love them ballers!

Can't forget about this dude. He was so stoked that the Dodger's "closed" the Diamond Backs.

La-Lympics

With the Olympics still fresh on our minds, I thought now would be a great time to reflect upon the day I had the honor of grasping the Olympic Torch...

Too bad it wasn't any cooler than going up to the Olympic Park in Park City for a Nu Skin Ruby Trip. Eh, good time either way.


Whit and I on the lift heading up to the Alpine slide, whoopee!!!

Justin and Whitney SUPER excited for the slide. P.S. It was really freakin cold. IN JUNE!

Our first Nu Skin bobsled team!

Sometimes, do you not know how to finalize a post, so you just end it, all lame-like? That's what I'm doing now...

My Buddy n' Me

Me and my thrift shop hoppin' buddy.
I heart our new hobby. (more to come on our finds)

Scuzzy Saturday

Saturday's are ugly days.

So, what's a girl to do on a Saturday when she's supposed to attend her friend's baby shower and go out in public? Well, she yanks her hair back for a frickin' early flight home from California*, skips the teeth brushing** and swishes Diet Coke around her mouth.

Ah, the joys of Saturdays.

Granola, Powla (housing the moppet) and Funny-Pants

*Flew to California for a work thing at noon on Friday, and flew home at 7 a.m. the next day, ugh
**I forgot my toothbrush ok!?

Office Pets

I'm not really one for dogs, but our boss, Justin, brought in his two puppies to work one day, and I was done. Stick a fork in me and I'm done!


Don't worry Meg, these pups can't hold a candle to Sophers.

Winner Winner, Chicken Dinner!

I believe congratulations is in order for the following bloggers:
Katie "Skatelayne", Anna, and Darise
*
I'm so excited to meet Katie and Anna! Amazing how this blogging world brings us together!
*
Darise is my husband's cousin, so she's MINE now too, and I was so pleased to see that she bid on my services! Lucky for me we already have an appointment set up for tomorrow!
*
Also, being the ditz that I am, I informed Darise she'd won my auction and instructed her to donate $40 to The Nielson PayPal account, when she'd actually just bid $20! Being the GEM Darise is, she actually donated $40 without a second thought! So sorry Darise!
*
Katie and Anna, contact me soon so we can set up your appointment!
