It's exactly what you think it is. And it's hilarious.

We're moving again! While I hate the physical act of moving, I love going through all my stuff to merge, purge, donate and discover things that have been tucked away. I also love finding new places for all of our bits and pieces in the new space. And shopping for new items we realize we need.
But the best part, this new house is a 3/2! That means we'll have a guest room again, Sean will have his own office space and the icing on the cake - TWO bathrooms! Plus a two car garage, granite counter tops, a fenced in yard for the dogs, monthly lawn maintenance and much more.
Oh, and did I mention it's directly across the street from our current house? Should make for a pretty hilarious moving day. The neighbors will be in for quite a show. Wish us luck!
Be our neighbors?

from a crazy cook on wet hot american summer to his latest role as a vicious vampire on true blood, christopher meloni, has been a favorite of mine ever since my bff stef introduced me to law & order SVU. between daytime television at the gym, hulu and netflix, i think i've seen about every episode he's in. but i have absolutely no idea where this gif is from. anyone? either way, nice six pack detective stabler.

this is one of my favorite gifs from the blog this advertising life and i totally just did it at work.
so there i was, waiting for the elevator to go to the cafe, when the scent of free breakfast came wafting my way. i turned the corner to see a full spread of eggs, cheese grits, biscuits, sausage and coffee just sitting in the board room, half eaten. there was already a lady in there making a plate who quickly confirmed it was open season on breakfast bites. upon hearing this i literally, ran through my office passing out plates and telling everyone "there's a breakfast free for all in the board room!" we all indulged and it felt like christmas.

the top knot/bun/swirl is my go to hairstyle every day when i get home from work, but according to this tutorial i've been doing it all wrong! i usually just gather my hair into a high pony, spin it around, double wrap it with a hair tie and hope it doesn't fall out. this seems much more secure. will definitely be trying this tonight.

Turning down invitations to dinners or vacations with “I can’t afford it” may be honest, but it also frames your lack of funds as a sort of affliction to which you’re forced to submit. Instead, try saying, “I’m trying to save money.” Then follow it up with an invitation to something you can afford later in the week. This way, it sounds like you’re making the decision rather than letting your bank balance lead you along. I also find this phrase strikes a different note when you use it. Rather than feeling sorry for you, people tend to nod emphatically, tell you that’s a good idea, and say they should really be getting into that saving business, too. Plus, by matching your rejection of their invitation with an invitation of your own, you can avoid looking like a jerk.
I love this idea. "I'm trying to save money." In our case it's actually true, because honestly we could "afford" to do a lot more than what we're doing, but I don't really want to. Buying a house and saving for a family is way more important to me than hitting up the bars or going on a shopping spree. if that makes me "boring" to some friends, then so be it. they'll be in our shoes one day too.
how do you save money? what helps you get through those tough "I want to buy everything!" days?
i had plans to meet my friend lisa for lunch today at 1, except when i was ready to leave there was no one around to cover the department. when two of my coworkers finally showed up, i rushed out of the office so fast i forgot to email my friend to say i was leaving and also left my debit card on my desk. another trip up and down our excruciatingly slow elevator, and i was out the front doors before i could realize it was raining and i didn't have an umbrella. i started thinking to myself "i'm not meant to go to lunch today. something bad is going to happen."
i made it safely across the street and through the hospital halls to the double doors of the cafeteria. then as i rounded the corner my left shoe slipped out from under me, rolling my ankle and causing me to start a really looooong, embarrassing, trying-not-to-fall-on-my-ass shuffle/dance while pulling one of the magnetic cafeteria doors off the wall. wow. i'm sure i must have been a sight to see.
despite the pitfalls, lunch with Lisa was fun and my ankle feels fine. that said, i must now assume that all of these warning signs were pointing toward food poisoning from the taco salad i just inhaled. wish me luck and i'll keep you posted.
but seriously, does this ever happen to you? everything that could go wrong, does go wrong and you start to think . . . is this a sign that i shouldn't be doing what i'm about to be doing?

i love the blog sweet home style because it's just that - simple photos of sweet homes with great style. no profiles, no how to's, just picture after picture of living space inspiration. per a call for submissions i just sent in this recent snapshot of our little home for two. i hope it makes it! i'd love to see what people comment.

If anyone is still reading this blog, sorry for leaving you with such a huge cliffhanger back in November! We did indeed get married. Saturday, April 7, 2012 was a beautiful day and one I will never forget thanks to my amazing best-friend-turned-husband, bridesmaids, family and friends.
I will dedicate individual posts to our wedding, honeymoon, and what it feels like to be a wife soon, but I just wanted to say (after seven months) that I'm back and intend to post at least once per week until death to us part. it's a new goal of mine along with working out once a day and reading one book per month. let's see if i can keep it up!
also, just out of curiosity, if you're reading this post - can you make a comment? i'm going to keep blogging either way, i just want to see who's still with me . . . [crickets] . . . anyone?

on april 7, 2012 sean and i will become man & wife!! to let everyone know we teamed up with my bff and super talented designer karen kurycki to create unique save the date postcards. sean and i spent an hour on the floor of our favorite antique shop flipping through boxes of old florida postcards to find the best 100. then he worked with karen to create a stamp with all the info needed. she added the illustrations of us - which is my favorite part! she also came over and embossed the back of EVERY postcard. the following week i embossed a "hi." stamp on the front, sean stuck on the stamps and out the door they went. next up, invitations!
