...have you seen the trailer for Mindy Kaling's new show?! More importantly, how did it take me this long?! It looks like everything I've ever wanted in a show....if a member of the Bluth family makes any sort of guest appearance, I'll probably die. Just warning you.

monday, monday

just a glimpse of my views on this monday evening!

napping monsters

catching up on unfinished projects

libations served up via my 3rd favorite Beatle

and this song, which tends to get put on repeat more often than not

"decide what to be and go be it"

well, go on!

march lust list

hello again! Even though March is already halfway over, I'd like to share what I've been lusting over lately!




Red Velvet



is it obvious that I'm ready for spring and warm weather?! never mind that in a 1 hour brunch with friends yesterday we had sun, rain, and snow in what I'm pretty sure was a 20 degree temperature flux. oh, Oregon, we really do have a love/hate relationship sometimes.

want to know a secret?

I haven't used shampoo to wash my hair for an entire week....

A WEEK! Coming from the girl who previously wished it was acceptable/not environmentally irresponsible to wash twice a day. The girl who has the finest, oilest, flattest hair around. This is big. What's my secret? It's surprisingly simple.

Baking soda.

Who knew! Life=changed.

music tuesday....ala nyquil

Music Tuesday is a bit later than normal today, but better late than never! Home early from work tonight, not feeling so hot, so I'm hopped up on nyquil and Yogi tea (the best!). Be thankful, little bloggy readers, for my neighbor who decided that it was screamo band practice time at midnight...were it not for him I would be peacefully sleeping instead of remembering that I almost forgot about music Tuesday!

Row House 14 Music Linkup Party

This week's theme is "sunny" music, a very far departure from the cold, wet, miserable weather that I'm actually stuck with. enjoy!

1. "Mr. Blue Sky" by ELO

2. "Catch My Disease" by Ben Lee

3. "Sunshine" by Matt Costa

4. "Falling for the First Time" by Barenaked Ladies

And finally, my favorite song to listen to out in the sunshine, probably because of how enjoyable they were at a recent summer concert:

5. "Float On" by Modest Mouse

hope you enjoyed my sunny picks!

today I'm making...

Today is sewing day in this little ol apartment! I have three things that I want to at least start today, so create some accountability (gah! work terms creeping into every day life!) I'd like to share my projects here post-production!

I plan on making several of these little guys today
This skirt looks too simple NOT to try! I can't decide if I want to make it maxi like shown, or if I want to make a shorter one....decisions, decisions! 


And last, but not least, the one that I am probably least likely to finish today, but will definitely be starting, is this amazing pony dress that Elsie shared this week! 


I can't decide what animal I want to sport on mine though! top runners so far are :



Any ideas out there?!
