Penis Shaped Gummi Candies – Hannah Montana edition

My like a 13-year-old boy, I was so delighted to discover penis shaped gummi lighthouses that a friend knew that I’d get a kick out of this Hannah Montana concert candy. I know it’s an unfortunate coincidence that the guitar has bent into the shape that it has and that Miley is striking the pose that she is, but really?…

Dior Mascara

If you know me, you know that I’m addicted to mascara. I put three coats of mascara on every morning, each coat a different brand offering different perks (lengthening, thickening, and waterproof). This weekend I was ready to shop, so I splurge on the Dior Black Out Mascara at Sephora that I’ve heard so much about. For $24, I expected…

Sneezing Panda

I’ve been informed that I’m way late to the sneezing panda party, but it’s just so cute that everyone should watch it again. I’ve become mildly obsessed with pandas as of late, and was quite disappointed when there weren’t any at the zoo last week, but I learned that the San Diego Zoo is one of the few zoos in…

Mold-A-Rama 2008

I made it my mission during our trip to Bookfield Zoo to collect every Mold-A-Rama in the park, and I almost succeeded. If you’re not familiar with the Mold-A-Rama, it’s a contraption developed in the 1950’s that instantly makes colorful plastic toys. The machines are sprinkled throughout the US, but Chicago has the most, with 11 at Brookfield Zoo and…

Our Anniversary…

Happy 28th Anniversary Mom and Dad! So, if my mom and dad are celebrating their anniversary, why do I say “our anniversary?” Because, like Jesus, I was the reason for the season. I made my grand entrance seven months later, in March, thus I was a integral part of their wedding celebration. I’m hoping my anniversary card got lost in…

Fall is in the air…

I was giddy when I stepped outside early this morning, because it was cool and clear; just like fall should be. Fall is by far my favorite season. Time for jeans and sweaters, but not winter coats and boots. Apple orchards and pumpkin patches open for business and there are few brief weeks to enjoy the cool weather before Christmas…

Such a tease…

Or at least that’s what I’ve been told. Which is why I needed to live up to my reputation and give everyone a sneak peak at what is going on with my blog redesign! So, what do you think? The color, spunk, and personality are next, but the general layout is there and I’m super excited to see it come…

RIP World’s Tallest Woman

The world’s tallest woman died this morning. Sandy Allen was only 53 years old, but at 7 feet 7 1/4 inches, had suffered from many medical problems, and had become dependent on a wheel chair in recent years. In 1974 she reached out to Guiness World Records with a letter that said: I would like to get to know someone…

Bargain Bragging

When you compliment someone on an article of clothing or an item in their home, do you think it’s tacky when they tell you how much they paid? I think it’s super tacky when someone tells you how much they paid in a superior way. Like they are proud they spent $100 on their jeans or want to make sure…

I sing like a good canary

Not only was my 10 year high school reunion this past Saturday, this week marks the 15th anniversary of the release of Liz Phair’s Exile in Guyville, an album I listed to religiously throughout my high school years. On any given day, I feel like I’m still 16 years old, but every once in a while, something crosses my path…
