the joys of being married

ME: Sweetie, do you think I look like a pirate if I wear this scarf out?
HUSBAND: You DO look like a pirate...I like it.
ME: No...I don't really want to look like a pirate...I'm just asking if I happen to look like a pirate if I'm wearing the scarf. I just want to look cute.
HUSBAND: Sure. I think you do look a really cute pirate.

Kiss me Kate

Kate Spade you are such a tease! Why do you torment me with these lovely clothes, making me lust after your frocks only to realize that I shouldn't wear a $300 blouse to help a first grader wash his hands?!

Dance, Dance, Dance

I had heard of him, heard of what he was doing with the dance, but then basically lost track. I smile when I watch this but then I also get exhausted thinking of all the places, the packing, the unpacking, the's mind-blowing...but fun to watch.

Six degrees of separation

When I heard the name Louise Black on we are so glad you're back Project Runway, I thought it sounded familiar. I had bought one of her jewelry pieces in the fall of 2008 from her shop on's a small world.

The Tudors

Gorgeous kings and queens (and you'll see plenty of them with and without clothes on), fabulous jewels, a historically accurate storyline...what more can a viewer ask for? We just finished season 2 of The Tudors and am kind of rethinking my "wouldn't it be great to be a Queen" theory. Yes, it's Hollywood..but you feel like you're learning something along the way.

Why didn't I think of that?

I like shopping as much as the next girl--but when I heard of this- I thought- great idea! much do we spend on the "wear it once" dress?! From their website:
"Why should celebrities and fashion editors get all the insider perks? They've been borrowing for years, but finally a former Lucky Magazine fashion editor is passing these perks onto you! Borrow a beautiful designer dress for 10% of it's retail price, risk-free. Watch for fabulous new arrivals every Monday. Become a member (for free) for full website access and pricing information, and get started on this guilt-free craze now... Who wants to be seen in the same dress twice anyway!"
