My Next Haircut

I have been wanting to chop my hair off forever. It might be awhile...because I still like mine long, but eventually it will be short again and it will be something like this. Everyone keeps saying that she is trying to copy Posh...but I don't think so. To me, they both just have short hair! Well, regardless, I love the new hair!

Johnny Cupcakes

I love this site! It is the perfect place to go for fun t-shirts!

Harry Potter: Order of the Phoenix

I am a dork and I love Harry Potter. Not only is there a new book coming out this summer (the final book), but there is also a new movie! Look how much the cast is growing up!!

The Big 22

Yesterday was my 22nd birthday and it was absolutely fabulous! I spent the weekend with family in Ohio and came back to hang out with my family more! Although, I must say, birthdays are kind of different now...there is no longer something to really look forward to, because now I am just truly getting older. Anyway, THANKS to all of those that made my day so wonderful!

Free Puppy

This little guys needs a home. He is a short hair teacup chihuahua and completely free! He will be a grand total of 4lbs when he is full grown and I am told he is a sweetie! One of my best friends is his foster parent at the moment, and is looking for a home for him. I have found one possibility for a future home, but no final decision yet. Let me know if you are interested!!

The Daily Show

I love The Daily Show with John Stewart. I always forget how much I love it until I see it again. I hadn't watched it for a long time, and I watched it this morning and couldn't stop laughing!

I used to have bangs, and part of me really wants them back...and part of me doesn't. I just get so bored with my hair...

I Heart Rachel Ray

Chicago Dog Salad
Recipe courtesy Rachael Ray
Show: 30 Minute Meals
Episode: Beans and Franks

Eat well, eat more! I cut out the bun so I can have more dogs and veggies with less guilt. Chicago-style dogs are my favorites, with pickles, tomatoes, onions, mustard, and slaw on top; this salad reverses the order and piles the veggies up high underneath the dogs.
1/4 cup yellow mustard
2 tablespoons vinegar, eyeball it
1 rounded teaspoon sugar
4 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 medium red onion, thinly sliced
1/2 of a 16-ounce sack shredded cabbage blend for slaw salads
1 romaine heart, shredded
2 vine ripe tomatoes, diced
3 large half sour or garlic pickles, chopped
Salt and pepper
8 pork or beef hot dogs, cut into 1-inch-thick slices on an angle
In the bottom of a large bowl, combine mustard, vinegar, sugar, and about 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil. Add the onions, cabbage, romaine, tomatoes, and pickles and toss the salad. Season with salt and pepper, adjust seasonings, and reserve.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add in remaining 1 tablespoon vegetable oil (1 turn of the pan) then arrange the sliced dogs in a single layer. Sear them a couple of minutes on each side. Remove to paper towels to drain.

Mound up the salad on plates, top with seared dogs, and serve.

*I can't wait to make this!*

Beautiful Invitations

I love all of the invitations at KenzineKate. Too bad they are all entirely too expensive for me! Although, I am a very firm believer in getting ideas from other places. If you could find cards already printed up, or even find/make a design yourself, you could easily print the information, and the best part is you could do it all from home! Some people don't like fancy invites, but I think there is so much importance that lies in the details. Perhaps when I get married one day, I will have to make some wonderful invitations like these!

Missing Italia

I have find myself seriously missing Italy lately. I went there for the summer of 2005 and I could just as easily live there if it weren't for the family and friends I would miss here. Perhaps one day I can have a dream vacation home there....or I can at least dream about having one...

These are just a few pictures from my travels.

Apple iPhone

This phone is getting a lot of hype and I am curious to see if it lives up to the expectations. I do really love my ipod, and I want to get an apple computer, so I am already an apple fan...guess we will soon find out!

Mad About Madden

I love all of these!

Old Favorites

I used to love dELiAs, but I thought I had outgrown it by now; apparently not. I got curious and went to check out and fell in love with all of this stuff!


Brooke Wilen used to work with movie executives and now she knits! She started off knitting by hand and now has machines which do her work. Some of it is a little pricey for me, but the sale stuff isn't bad! My grandmother taught me to knit, and I used to know how, this makes me want to learn again. Perhaps if she remembers she should give me a refresher course!
