"I’ll tell you what I do want. I want someone who will be monogamous, and nice to his mother. And I want someone who likes musicals but knows to just shut his mouth when I’m watching Lost. And I want someone who thinks being really into cars is lame and strip clubs are gross. I want someone who will actually empty the dishwasher instead of just taking forks out as needed, like I do. I want someone with clean hands and feet and beefy forearms like a damn Disney prince. And I want him to genuinely like me, even when I’m old. And that’s what I want."

I don’t really care for musicals, but replace that with crochet and it’s spot on.

"Do not think that love in order to be genuine has to be extraordinary. What we need is to love without getting tired. Be faithful in the small things, because it is in them that your strength lies."

Care.

It’s happening

I’ve been thinking for awhile now that I am not crazy about all the processed crap and sugar I eat even with my “healthy” diet. 

This summer, I did weight watchers, counted calories, exercised, and my weight has stayed the same, in fact I even gained a few pounds, I honestly don’t know how.

I know weight is just a number but mine is not really that close to a healthy BMI and that just kind of sucks. I’ve been at that healthy number before and I was stronger, happier, and generally felt a million times better.

I want to hit the reset button. And I’ve been watching some of you tumblrs doing Whole 30, then a woman I work with came in the office after not seeing her for a few weeks and she looked fantasic from doing the Whole 30. And I decided to do it too. I’ve been researching and planning and already trying to detox from sugar. I’m officially starting Sunday. My husband says he’s in too.

I am currently the most stressed about breakfast… eggs make me want to vomit in the morning. So I guess sweet potatoes it is? Wish me luck!

New level of adult laziness unlocked

Come home exhausted, skip work out, instead veg out on couch for two hours.

Husband has prepared crockpot chicken, but doesn’t feel well. Goes to bed early.

I pack up the crockpot chicken for another, healthier night that might involve an actual meal. Like maybe even with a vegetable side dish.

Proceed to make a bowl of Cheerios for dinner.

I woke up, checked my email, saw this, and purchased it before 7 am.
You can buy yours here.

"Wake up early. Drink coffee. Work hard. Be ambitious. Keep your priorities straight, your mind right and your head up. Do well, live well and dress really well. Do what you love, love what you do. It is time to start living."

Good Sunday night reminder for the week ahead.

For those who noticed, I wanted to share… I too have loved the tobacco leaf china from the moment I first laid eyes on it. But alas, even on eBay, it was just too pricey for me to justify. Believe me, I tried.
So I was thrilled when I found this pretty decent knock off at one of my favorite decor stores, Furbish.
I totally understand wanting the real thing, but this $10 version will work just fine for my purposes.

Very excited about this addition to my toast and overnight oats.

My plate wall dreams are coming true! 

I made what is for me a very adult decision to put my sideboard buying on hold so we can do other house things and save for something I really love. Unless the perfect one at the perfect price magically comes along…

In the meantime, I finally have the start of my eclectic plate wall in the dining room. With plenty of room to grow as I find things I love. This makes me so happy! 

Also, you get a sneak peek of our fancy schmancy chandelier that in no way goes with our decor, but that’s what you get when you buy a “grandma special” fixer upper.

These are totally Pinterest-worthy wedding flowers.

This is the face (from a couple nights ago) of a dog who just ate a piece of banana peel. Or more accurately, my husband fed her a piece of banana peel to see if she would do it. And she passed with flying colors! Way to be a pug-shaped garbage can, G. It was small, don’t worry. I’m trying not to.🍌

Also Ginger’s wonky eye makes for some seriously good side eye/suspicious glances.
