november rain

November 4, 2011

 friday happy to you m’loves. california should be receiving its first autumnal deluge any second, and i couldn’t be more excited.

i love me a nasty storm.

here’s my recipe for making the most out of a hawkish downpour:

 trenches, boots, and scarves to keep you snug and fashionable on the outside.

 a homemade brew of spicy sweet to keep you toasty on the inside.

a pine-cone scented fire to keep things cozy ’round the house.

and a beast, to keep watch, and to keep warm during the imperative, afternoon, rainy day nap.

all the ingredients for a perfect storm.

weekend happy to you m’loves.

see you on the other side of sunday.

valentine happy

February 10, 2011

typically i’m not fond of february 14th.

too much red {my color liked least} and too little spontaneity.

hunky and i choose to celebrate everyday as valentines rather than designate one silly day.

{pause for involuntary gag}

but just in case,

this one wacky year (oh those silly rabbits),

let’s just say hunkiest couldn’t bear the thought of his bride going gift-less, this day of lovers’ sweet.

i’ve compiled a list {websites included honey} to guide him into gifting.


dreams caught and evil spirits thwarted with my  pretty new pendant.


my inner alice in wonderland forever quenched in the high back cushion of a new chair.

navy and black. my new favorite combo bite. a side of sequins for dipping.


strappy stellas for stomping and romping ’round town.

a second stalactite for all of my costume changes. romping and stomping can get a girl a sweaty y’know.

no fancy words or pleas here, other than…..i’m out of my perfume baby.

doesn’t matter if i don’t have anywhere to where it. what matters is that it becomes mine.

doesn’t hurt to ask.


in the end, if there are no bows to untie, no champagne to sip, no new pups to potty;

i cry stupid, ugly, re-united with your long lost sister you never knew you had, tears, at how lucky i am to have this man by my side. it truly is valentines day around here all year long.

the presents have already been opened.

my grown up xmas list

December 22, 2009

O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Much pleasure thou can’st give me

just in case he IS checking his list twice here is what i would be asking for if we lived in that magical world where friends weren’t sick, parents didn’t fret over bills, animals frolicked freely, a soldier’s watch was limited to his sleeping child, and our earth pumped out big gulps of clean, unpolluted air.

alas, this world eludes me. yet. till then, here’s my shameless, materialistic christmas list.
