Me: I learned that Telluride doesn't allow chain restaurants, so if you want to quit your job and live in a hippie van with me, we can move to Telluride.
Jen: We'll sell pies and cupcakes. I will play the tambourine and wear a headdress. That will be my job.
Me: I won't wear shoes and will only wear dresses.

So, I ordered the shoes in Yellow and they arrived on Friday! They are AMAZING. Very comfortable & of course they look hot! My dear sister bought me the shoes in Cognac as well because she knew how important they were to me. Thanks Sispoodle!! -J

In which Richmond is ghetto
Kelsey: So you wanna know this one thing...
Kelsey: There's only one bathroom in my house right now cause they are installing a 2nd one downstairs right now. But anyway...someone clogged the potty so I had to pee in the alley outside this morning. That's some ghetto shit.
Me: Well you do live in RIC
Kelsey: My roomates are asleep, and I sure as hell am not plunging anything.
Yes, BFFs tell each other these things.
My Random List of Nevers
(Brought to you by observations of my surroundings) 1. I will never wear pajamas in public. I did it once when I was a freshman in college to walk 50 yards to the convenience store on campus next to my dorm and regretted it immensely. PJs are made for the bed and home. Not public. No no. 2. I will never let my children put colorful dye or colorful spray shit in their hair. No child of mine...
Ok, I thought I should give you a little update on my Jcrew fiasco. After taking to social media (aka bitching on their Facebook wall, which duh, they have over 200,000 fans so SOMEONE would see it), they called and were very very apologetic. They re-routed my unwanted/un-asked-for package, put in a call to take the charge OFF my card, promised to compensate me for shipping, and are sending me a...

We have friends who are getting married, so it’s okay, trust me! If you click it be warned, you’ll find yourself in a farm wedding fantasy where you’re name is actually something like Feather. Just me? I’m okay with that. -J

Yes, I said it. They suck. I ordered a dress about a month ago from there. I fell in love with it online and what happened? Oh, I got it and it was horrible quality. Cheap. Shoddy. Awful. Naturally, I returned it. To my surprise, good old Jcrew decided it would be a great idea to send it to me again, and yes! Charge my credit card! Too bad, I didn’t order it. After talking to a...
[Disclaimer: This post is a little raw, so don’t read it if you’d rather not cry. I promise by tomorrow I’ll be back to posting pretty things and the occasional liberal rant. Right now though, I just needed to post this to get it off my chest. No, to get it off my heart, it weighed a bit heavy on my heart.] Here we are 3 years later. Being a writer by nature, I figured I...

NOVA/DC ladies, do you have any suggestions of where a girl can get her hair/makeup done in the Northern Virginia/DC area? Please help! I’ve been out of VA for almost 2 years and haven’t ANY idea of where to go. I’m trying to go for something…not so expensive. As in, there is no way in hell I’m paying $200 to get it all done. Thanks!
The sads will be gone next week, I promise.
I promise I’ll stop being so emotional next week, but this week, I’ve got a minor case of the sads and a major case of absolute LOVE for my university. In order to keep myself from spiraling into a puddle of tears, I keep reading inspirational stuff about my university and how awesome it is. This is another example. If you didn’t go to Virginia Tech, it probably doesn’t...

They have detailed places for “Quiet Reflection” on campus for this hard week. All great places to gain a little peace, however I’d pick the steps outside of Burruss, right next to the light pole.
