I Like Grey.

It might be a fall thing, or just a mood thing, but all I want to wear lately is grey and black. Absolutely KICKING myself for not scooping this Rebecca Minkoff bag up when it went 30% off at Bop.

You win some you lose some I suppose! I want to bundle up in big sweaters and see the leaves on the ground and cuddle up by a fire. And I want to do it all while wearing grey and black.

White Lies I Tell in Bars.

I like to tell white lies when I am out. When someone asks me what I do for a living, I sometimes tell them that I name the nail polish colors for OPI. Someone has to have that job, right?

And sometimes I tell them that I have a tattoo much like this one:

I tell them (only if I am wearing pants) that I have a tattoo of a cougar crawling up my thigh and that where its claws are digging into my leg there are drops of blood tattooed there as well. Because I am a badass. It's fun to see how long I can keep it going. Chew on that for the weekend and try it if you dare!

If I Had a Hammer!

Most toddler girls snuggle up with their baby doll. Not this girl.

Sure I had my fair share of dolls, but I went through a phase where all I wanted was this:

My wooden hammer. Except it was prettier than this. It had a yellow handle. I would sleep with it, no joke. Explains a lot!

Side note: I'd love to cuddle up with that hammer right about now. It's just been one of those weeks!

What's Making Me Swoon at the Moment...

I don't even have to write anything. But I will. That GORGEOUS color makes me yearn for Fall. We don't have Fall here. Makes me yearn for Fall back home.

Buy them here. Swoon.

I received these flowers last week at work. Super sweet.

But I wasn't nuts about the vase or the arrangement itself. So, I dug out my fishbowl vase and decided to play florist and make my own arrangement. This is the end product. I am DEFINITELY not a pro, but it wasn't too bad!

Krispy Kreme Cheeseburger...

...with a side order of chocolate covered bacon on a stick. Sounds like fare from the WisconSIN State Fair if you ask me! Could as easily be MinneSNOWta as well. I would have a bite just to see what it was like but not sure I could polish that off on my own. Doesn't it look...interesting?

Check out the article all about it here.

Worst. Taste. Ever.

I'm done with the cleanse. And I feel good. BUT, I must tell you that juice #5 each day, which was called C.A.B. MUST have been concocted by the Devil herself. No joke. It's even red.

Beets, Carrots, Apples, Lemon and Ginger. Sounds like it would be good, but it was NOT. If I ever cleanse again, I am making sure that juice is NOWHERE near me. And guess what, I still haven't had a Diet Coke!?!?!?!

JC Is 4U

I was driving home from work yesterday and saw this license plate:

It might be too small to see it, but it says "JC IS 4U". Hmm. Initially, I thought they meant Jesus Christ. That's probably what it would mean in any other state. But we're in Hollywood. Which is a strange place. So that got me thinking. Could it be JC Chasez? Maybe! I wouldn't be surprised one bit. I didn't get a good look at the driver because I was trying so hard to line up at the right spot at each red light so I could snap a photo (not while driving mind you).

I Can Dream About You!

You know that song "I Can Dream About You" from the 80s? I had to google to know that Dan Hartman sang it. Now I know. Well, this is what plays in my head when I see this:

I am not allowed Diet Coke while I am doing the blueprint cleanse. I am on day one, and since I eased into the cleanse, I haven't had a single Diet Coke since Monday. And I am not terribly craving one. But that first sip will be oh-so-delicious. Nothing better than the first sip out of a perfectly chilled DC. Well, ok, lots of things are better. But I thoroughly enjoy it.

And here is the video for your viewing pleasure:

Digging This Ring.

I spotted this over-the-top ring at Anthro this past weekend. It's wild, and I love it.

Not sure how much I would wear, but I kind of want!

Stunning Beauty.

Each time I see Marion Cotillard, I am even more convinced that she just may be one of the most beautiful women. In the world. Period.

It took a while for her to grow on me. I am fresh off of a screening of Inception (GREAT movie, by the way), and once again, she has left me speechless with her beauty. And Leo? Boy, that man sure can wear a suit! Swoon. But I've known that about him for a looooong time.

One in Each Color Please!

I saw this scarf in a mag recently, and desperately need to find a reasonable substitute, because I love and I want!

I love scarves. They're cute and if my neck is warm, then I am warm. And I am often cold. TRUE STORY. I get goosebumps at the beach when it's 80.

I Have a Bone to Pick With You, Victoria.

Not you, but your Secret. Victoria's Secret. While I luuurve that PINK has a collegiate line and I can stock up on some cute Badger gear, it was recently announced that they launched a new NFL line because the college gear did so well. And I am MAD. You might be thinking, what is the problem with that? Don't you get excited about football Sundays? Yes, as a matter of fact I do. BUT...and that's a big but, not all teams are licensed. My beloved Packers aren't included. BIG TIME SAD FACE. Half of the NFC North is, and I have plenty of Vikings and Bears fans in my life who will be pleased about this, but still no love for me. I'll have to continue wearing my not-so-cute Packers gear. So sad. And Carolina? REALLY? I don't know ANYONE who gets excited about the Panthers. And they're not even good. I would be SUPER insulted had Tampa Bay Been included (or maybe even Detroit). Here's to hoping that next season there will be a complete roster and you KNOW this girl will be stocking up.

The person at VS who pitched this idea in the first place was a SMART COOKIE.

PS- The Bears stuff is SUPER cute. Direct rival, I know, but still, have to give credit. Also loving the Patriots, Giants and Jets gear. And I hate to say it but the Cowboys too. Sigh. Can it be September already?

Loving This Right Now.

I go through phases with nail polish where I will do the same thing over and over again. Recently, after wanting a change from "You Don't Know Jacques", I gave "Over The Taupe" a whirl.

And now, this is going into the rotation. I realize I am about a year behind everyone else with this, but it looks great with my gold and my not so gold jewelry too! Bonus! I know it's summer and I should be wearing pinks and summery corals and bright and light colors, but I can't help myself! I'm in lurrrve.

Uncle Jesse...

Word on the street is that John Stamos will be gracing us with his presence on the lot for the next 10 weeks.

Kind of makes me want to make a run down to the Coffee Bean or Commissary at least once an hour for a chance encounter. Then it wouldn't really be a chance encounter, would it. Hmm...

It Ain't Over...

...til the fat lady sings. Er, til training camp is over. You heard it here first. He may THINK he wants to retire right now. But I know better. I was put through TWO years of this. I know.

I woke up this morning to a very aggressive text from a fellow Packer Backer. It said "Favre Retiring. Done.". That text excited me at first. But I wasn't going to believe it that quickly. I pulled my computer out and went immediately to ESPN.COM. Of course there has been no confirmation. And Childress had a pointless press conference. No direction given. Not shocked.

We will all know for sure in September. Just saying. Homeboy REALLY doesn't want to participate in training camp.

Questionable Footwear.

I saw a hot dad this evening. Not a rare occurrence. And then the record scratched and stopped. I looked down and saw this:

Crocs are SO cute on kids. I melt when I see my little Mason man in his big boy Crocs. And I bet they are comfy for you adults who wear them. Hell, my 69-year-old father has a pair. But he has feet problems and his are BLACK. (His Crocs, not his feet). There is no need for this man to have lilac Crocs on his tootsies. Let's hope he lost a bet with his buddies and had to wear these and that he didn't CHOOSE to wear that color. Yes, I bet that's what happened.

It's The First of the Month...

How did that happen? It's August?!?!? Um, ok. Rent is due today. And I don't want to pay it. I can think of about 5,396 better things I can do with my $x,xxx.xx that I have to pay my landlord. He'll understand that, right?

Whenever I write a rent check out, I secretly sing this song in my head. But it's not so much a secret anymore. I just told you. Now I suggest you do the same thing. Go write your rent check out and throw back to the mid 90s!
