hello holidays

hello blog!

well, with the move and everything else that has been new, i haven't been here in a while. in fact, i haven't had much time for the internet and so there hasn't been much to share. i try to keep this as less of a 'journal' and more of a 'weblog' so here are some of my recent consumerist obsessions (some of them obviously over-the-top):

the diana mini
a new sofa
beautiful antique jewelry
an extravagant black diamond necklace

oh, and lots and lots of toys for my new puppy honey


i've been pretty busy unpacking and getting things i need for the house... it's been several months and i still have boxes to unpack (oops!)

in the last few months, i've discovered...

llamas are beautiful
the beach is fun even when it's cold
i can probably handle going back to school
that i never realize how long my hair really is until i cut it all off
buying your first house is a lot of work but extremely rewarding (see how long my hair was!?!)

i have really really great people in my life

hope to be back here soon

i'm so charmed by this song...

found on a fun (new to me) blog of bollywood songs... atul's bollywood song a day. i've found so many gems on there so far.

i missed my window of going to sleep early tonight, hope you're enjoying yours. i'm feeling pretty cozy right now.

here's a song i grew up with that is especially dear to me. i barely remember seeing the movie, but it might have something to do with why i love beards so much.

goodnight dears, xoxo

things that have been taking up my time lately:

-worrying over those decisions
-back injuries
-catching up with old friends
-letting go of past mistakes
-worrying more over big decisions
-not sleeping
-sleeping entirely too much
-probably some other things too

i've not been around here as much, so i'll leave you with printed matter for now. by evelin kasikov.

oh, and one more if you can't get enough

more insect related happenings

i've been too busy lately and not in the good way. hopefully things will be back to normal now and i can stop neglecting the things i love. i've been doing almost nothing else but working lately... i did manage to see a real live snail on my porch on saturday after the rain. and my sister showed me these cute little shorts called green porno. here's one:

it seems that i've moved on from some of the things that were holding me back before only to inherit a new set of goals. (i'm trying to stay more positive and call them goals rather than obstacles). I found a great quote on notes to self that is helping me understand some of the mistakes i've been making.

"People who live in the present often wind up exploiting the present to an extent that it starts removing the possibility of having a future."

and for now, some recent inspiration...

the house i lived in when i was a kid had a small porch that my mom decorated with impatients. at night there used to be a lot of slugs around. i was always scared of them and even more scared that i would accidentally step on one. i've never seen a slug in texas but i might be able to enjoy it if i did. this one looks pretty cute.

twenty eight

it was my birthday last week, and after i got over my usual "i'm getting old" pity party, i managed to have a nice time and enjoy some time with my family. maybe we can go rollerskating next year.

my sister made me a lemon tart, and it was delicious. we tried to put 28 candles on it, but the package of candles only had 24, meh. here's a picture of the lemon tart... it was delicious... i love it when my sister bakes things for me.

i did make out with some nice presents, including the silverwear i've wanted for a while, a great wine rack... and the DINOSAUR COMICS BOOK!

In other matters, things are a bit messy these days but i'm trying to do my best and stay strong. i've given in to some of my previous weaknesses, but for now i will let myself be inspired by small victories. i need to work on my emotional strength and courage, so here goes for now.

lunchtime blogging

i stopped by my house during lunch today for the first time in a while... it's nice to see my cats and it's nice to be home on a cold, wet and dark day. anyway, i found this bathing suit that i think would look amazing on audrey. i would totally buy this for myself, but i don't think i could fit into it.

i am obviously trying to seduce you

i'm not sure how it happened, but over the past few weeks i've let things slip and slip and pretty much crash. unfortunately this story ends with a pile of dirty dishes, a messy house, no groceries and me watching bad television in tights with pajama shorts over them. this is my attempt to call myself out and whip myself back into shape.

and, you might enjoy this
