if i could only eat one food for the rest of my life it would be chicken wings. i love them. and things that are flavored like them (presidents choice chips and various pretzel products). so we decided to go on a little road trip to niagara falls, new york! after some greasy pizza, rolling rock splits and lovely chicken wings, we went to target and tops! i got some great stuff like three movies at $5 each! cry baby, billy madison and my girl. i also got some candy for halloween, a lamp shade (you can't have too many...), some pj pants and cute new boots!

on one fateful trip to the benev, i bought some records. they were a dollar each. i got john denver's rocky mountain high, bob seager's night moves and vera lynn's greatest hits. i like the way they look on my hutch nestled beside my favorite lamp. it also makes me feel like a hipster...the only problem is: i don't have a record player. so i looked online to see how much they are, and the answer isn't too bad. or i'm sure i can find one at the benev or a garage sale. anywho, i googled record players and turntables and i'm not going to lie, i was surprised by what i found. apparently, back in the 40's and 50's girls just sprawled provocatively on the floor while talking on the telephone and listening to records, sometimes they're completely naked. sounds like a blast. the link is posted for you, mr. brack. here are some of the good ones.
this is a lovely turntable available at urbanoutfitters.com
this table is also available from urbanoutfitters.com...
don't they look lovely together...swoon...
once i get a record player, i'll be the most
popular girl in school!
this just looks dangerous
how sexy i can be if i listen to records
and again...<3 brigitte bardot
i just love this chicks expression!
now that i've been exposed to the practical and sexy ways of the turntable, i don't think i'll be able to survive without one...

dad and i went on a little road trip! it was mucho fun! (mostly because i didn't have to drive much, thanks dad, and because we got to have dunkin' donuts!) since dad and i are huge history buffs and self proclaimed (by me) dorks, we went on a little educational vacay to gettysburg, pa and washington, dc! let the slide show commence:
my patriotic toes on their way to some
other nations capitol!

so, i've recently bought some glass jars with lovely stainless lids to house my cereal. let me tell ya, it takes breakfast to a whole other level! and it looks all neat and tidy and organized. i can right into the jar...there's no guessing as to what's in there. i now have a list of things in my kitchen (and a few other places...) that need to, MUST go into a jar:
- sugar; white, confectioners, yellow and brown
- all of my spices; especially my cinnamon sticks
- baking powder
- baking soda
- chocolate chips
- daily vitamins (however these should be brown or at least opaque)
here is some of my inspiration! enjoy!
i love the open shelves...
i also love the chalk board and the white display...
what a great idea..i smell a project!!
aren't they just works of art! so organized! i can't wait...poor mr. brack...

ask i wander my way through blogs and websites i am often accosted by crappy music. at one time i did think it would be a great idea to be able to share my love of music with all three of you that read this blog. until one day i realized; i am never just sitting here looking at my computer. i come from the generation of multi taskers; the eating and talking on your phone and putting on make up group. while i'm on the computer i am more often than not looking up songs on itunes, watching jeopardy (or hoarders), or catching up on the first three seasons of the big bang theory, so what, who cares? but, i digress. this is my plea to all the bloggers out there that think i want to listen to louis armstrong, or snow patrol, or keith urban or some other such nonsense (armstrong is awesome, but to me it just seems a little cliche, i'm an asshole, sue me...) keep it to your self or put the media player at the top of the blog so we can turn it off or change the song...thanks for nothing...xo

so, i thought red would be fun. i thought red would be exciting. red just made me feel blah. i have been quoted as saying 'yea, it's like orange or something..." and thus i believe it's time for a change! here's where i'm headed...no pun intended...
maybe i'd just like to look like her in general..
maybe not this blonde, but blake lively is a babe too...
ah, julia roberts...pretty woman is still one of my fave movies!
