Lazy Days

I had a VERY lazy weekend.

I looked like a shlumpadinka from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon.

So, on Sunday, I decided to get ALL 'done up' for no good reason at all.

Then I decided to have a MacBook photo shoot.

This is the result.

I Love Flowers!


This quote was on the chalk board of the cafe I visit every morning.

"Life is a grind. Use it to sharpen your character."

Good one cafe people.


I met someone named Bacon this weekend.
Yes, Bacon.

I really wanted to lick him. But I didn't.

Heart <3

Blog Game!
From my high school acquaintance and blog-bud Jasmine.
instructions: "with as much creativity as you can muster, show your heart in: a picture, a poem, a song (or piece of music), a phrase (or quote), an item of clothing, a place, and (just for fun) a disney princess. if you want to join in, tag 6 more blogs.

Me and my twinleys....

should not come
in such a way
i cannot know
the heart’s yearning
i dreamed a prince
a frog destiny
everything alchemically
into pure gold
should not defy desire
make me over
make me ready
kill the illusion
let truth submit
and every sacred vow

hold fast
-bell hooks

"The supreme happiness in life
is the conviction that we are loved~
loved for ourselves, or rather,
in spite of ourselves. "
Victor Hugo

Please let me know if the song is not showing up. Youtube is being weird today. If it isn't, please watch the song on YouTube. It's called Empty, by Ray Lamontagne.

Piece of clothing.....

Mark my BLOG! I will wear this wedding dress one day.

Place: Seaside, FL

Disney Princess: Definitely Sleeping Beauty.

BIG news



a cupcake............

For those who know me, this is HUGE!
I don't like cake.
Everyone is freaked out by this.
Now, I've found one that I LOVE.
It's from Urban Cookies.
I work with Brady and Sean's mom, Ann.
They had a new baby named Oliver......
and started making Ollie Cakes!
the one that I like is the carrot cake.
It's not even like cake, it's more like carrot bread.
The frosting is deliciously creamy & tart & sour.

But who wouldn't like a cupcake made by this guy?!?!?

Ollie Ollie Ollie

Urban Cookies uses organic ingredients
AND does mail order
AND were featured on the
Rachel Ray show.

Johnny Mac

My cousin, John Dougherty, died one year ago today from Melanoma. I can't believe it has been an entire year. PLEASE wear sunscreen EVERY day and PLEASE see your dermatologist regularly.
Below is a poem that his good friend, Tiffany, read at his memorial service. I absolutely love it.
We miss you John.

Now that I'm gone,

remember me with a smile and laughter.

And if you need to cry,

cry with your brother or sister

who walks in grief beside you.

And when you need me,

put your arms around anyone

and give to them

what you need to give to me.

There are so many

who need so much.

I want to leave you something.

Something much better

than words or sounds.

Look for me

in the people

I've known and loved or helped

in some special way.

Let me live in your heart

as well as your mind.

You can love me most

by letting your love

reach out to our loved ones.

By embracing them

and living in their love.

Love does not die,

people do.

So, when all that's left of me is love,

give me away as best you can.

Martini Deliciousness

Before Julie left to join Reed in Connecticut for the 'summah'
We had a very fun martini night at the Kiefer house.
The recipe for these DELICIOUS martinis
(it's called the Wind and Sea)
is from Azul,
one of my favorite places to go in La Jolla.
Their food and drinks are TDF
& the view from the restaurant is incredible.
So, Julie and I shook some up,
watched Coyote Ugly (complete with a sing along),
and popped some KieferKorn.
(have you had popcorn from the Kiefers? It's SO good).
and before we knew it...........
........the entire bottle of vodka was gone......
****don't judge until you've tried these, you'd do the same***
.........and we were drunk dialing........
(sorry Joe Cockrell, we just really love you).
The next day we crawled out of bed for our 9:00 a.m.
(I know, I'm a genius) massages and facials at Jurlique Spa.
When we arrived at the spa we noticed this sign.

I resisted the urge to ask,
"What if you're still kind of drunk from the night before?"

Here is the recipe. :)

2 parts raspberry vodka
splash of cointreau
equal parts Pineapple and Cranberry Juice
float champagne on top and garnish with fresh Raspberries.

P.S. We were not impressed with the Fireside Resort and kind of "eh?" about the massages and facials. I would recommend spending your money somewhere else!

This is what my office looks like today.
I know, it's disgusting and disorganized and awful.
If makes me feel discombobulated
(this is a fun word to use in a blog, no?)
and scatter-brained.

I think I need a secretary.
I used to have a secretary........
His name was Rocco.
He was very strong........

And very intimidating.......
He was also an excellent dancer, gave really good kisses and hugs and was VERY generous with the compliments.
But he moved back to California to be a cowboy
and professional baseball player.
