The Importance of That Extra Roll of Toilet Paper.

Once upon a time I dated a boy named Dan*. Dan and I went out for dinner to Bossa Nova and enjoyed some Brazilian cuisine and some wine. We got home that night and had planned on heading to a bar down the street to meet up with some friends. Dan had to use the bathroom before we headed out. 5 minutes passed. And that's a long time. My text alert went off on my phone. I checked it and it was a text from Dan.

"You're out of toilet paper and there aren't any extra rolls in here. I'm really embarrassed."

Poor kid. I left a roll outside the bathroom and I went to wait outside. Dude's face was a brilliant shade of red for the remainder of the eve.

Moral of the story. ALWAYS have an extra roll of toilet paper IN your bathroom. It will do you (or the Dans of the world) NO good in your linen closet.

Tailgating FAIL.

Hey YOU in the grey suede wedges! Have you EVER been to a sporting event before? Clearly not. This get up is so not OK on SO many levels. Especially in Wisconsin. Maybe trixies can get away with this in Texas. But no sir, not in Wisconsin. Shame on you.

American Horror Story.

Great show. It really is. But it scares me. For reals.

This is my rooms Katie watching American Horror Story.
This is Katie REALLY watching American Horror Story.
Needless to say, I won't watch it when I am home alone.

Birthday Girl. Birthday Beth.

Today I am getting on a plane to celebrate this gorgeous girl.
And I could NOT be more excited to see her and my besties. Not possible.

Friends. Haystacks. Book club. Puerto Vallarta. Sweetzer. Engagement excitement (and avoiding you the week leading up to it!). Lady Gaga "Just Dance". Ice Cream Cake. JESSICA SPEARS! Pittsburgh. Pearl. I love your friends who are now my friends. Halloween in WeHo. Big Bear (SNOW!). B-rad. 8 oz. Coldplay concert. Mini candy bar phone. Barney's. Impromptu Sunday Funday at the W. You love my friends who are now your friends. Beach trips to watch the boys surf. Breakfast club. DP Holiday parties. Fire pit nights. Unconditional love. Palm Springs. Sweet, sweet Paxton.

HBD, Bethy. I tell you this all of the time but I wish I could go back to that day in February 2007 when I met you and I wish I could tell "2007 Beth" and "2007 Ingrid" that we would become fast friends and best friends at that and I would kill to see the looks on their faces.

I love you OH-SO-MUCH and can't wait to celebrate YOU. Here's to 30!

Seasons. Real, live actual seasons.
Great friends.
Rib sandwiches.
I'm sure come February 22nd my attitude about my latitude will be different, but as I've been saying, THAT IS WHAT AIRPLANES ARE FOR!

Fancy Pants.

Someone red carpet event invite me now. I want to wear this like YESTERDAY.
I love it so much I don't even make sense right now. It's so Ingy. Seriously.

Snack Time.

Running out the door to the bus stop? Hungry? Why grab a handful of nuts or a bag of chips or something that might be relatively easy to eat...
Why do that when you can eat CORN. And be sure that it's on the cob!
True story. Spotted in Bucktown early on a Sunday morning.
