I’m tip-toeing into a preppy phase. I do not know where it came from but all of a sudden I want all things pink, navy, nautical, Nantucket red, chino, whale/elephant oriented. What? How? I guess I’ll just go with it.
Boston cream pie
Russell wants it for his birthday. (our birthdays are the 11th and 13th) Now I’m reconsidering what I want for MY birthday because I previously compromised on having ice cream cake (and just having one cake). The options are endless. Strawberry cake?! Oh maybe pumpkin pie (yes, in June). Or Texas sheet cake! What I really want to know is…do you have a good recipe for Boston...
The best thing about my Georgetown shop job? My hours begin at 11 am. So very civilized. -j
I would like to recommend that everyone ever...
Not to be confused with Nick and Jessica. I mean this Newlyweds. It was in the tribeca film festival and Ed Burns is in it and wrote it and directed it. I watched it last night and then my mom and I watched it tonight. I am slightly obsessed.. I’ve always liked Ed Burns, but now I am definitely an intentional fan. - j
I think the best sentiment anyone has ever told me upon losing a loved one was that they hoped I would find peace. I mean really, that’s all we really want when we lose someone right? Knowing they’re ok. Knowing you’re going to be ok. Peace in your heart. Peace in your mind. Peace.
Thoughts on the bachelorette
(Thank god for reality tv and its ability to take my mind off things) Really, I just have one thought: why the hell is that side crying?! Edit: by side, I meant guy…stupid phone.
I'm in a glass case of emotion
Just talked to my dad for the first time today and the call lasted all of a minute and a half. As soon as he started getting emotional he was off the phone. Oh ok, I’ll just sit here and cry by myself then.
As it turns out
Me finding out my grandma died made me sad. I wasn’t really sure how I’d react, but I’m just sad. Sad that she had to suffer for so long (Alzheimer’s, dementia, diabetes, blindness, strokes…you name it). Sad that my dad lost his mom. Sad that his relationship was strained. Sad that she had trouble remembering him the last time he saw her. Sad that I...
Death in the age of social media
I just found out my grandma died via Facebook. My cousin tagged me and family in her post and I happened to look at my phone during a break in a training I was in today. As far as I know, no one on my side of the family knew yet (not me, not my brothers, not my parents). This is the worst way to find out a loved one passed away.
I am alive. I am in Va. I am officially a Georgetown shopgirl. -j
The lamest confessions ever
Jesus. Bandwagons. I jump on them. I want to be a mom/housewife. I’m irrationally terrified that I won’t be able to have my own children. I’m convinced I’ll have twins. I think getting a PhD would be great for my career but completely pointless given my aspirations as stated above. I drank 4 jalapeno margs tonight. I really shouldn’t have spent the $40 they...
A few weeks ago I taught my 18 month old neice to say “go hokies!”. My brother and sister-in-law were not present, so in effect they didn’t know I’d taught her this. Tonight during a dinner with family she apparently burst out with a good ol’ “Go Hokies!”. When my brother asked her where she learned that, she didn’t even stop to think and just...
I can’t think of anything to confess. Am I kicked off tumblr?
sasstashticsparkles replied to your post: I do not know how to “tuck” Make an effort to squeeze buttocks “tucking them under”pushing hips a bit fwd, shoulders back, use stomach muscles to pull up and straighten/elongate your rib cage/stomach. Essentially your whole body should be flexed/tight (ballet dancer for 16yrs!) Thank you!! This makes so much more sense…I just tried it...
I do not know how to "tuck"
Like what the fuck is “tucking”? (In the Pure Barre/Daily Method/etc etc etc sense) I don’t think I’m doing it right. I basically just feel like I’m thrusting my hips. Today I kept waiting for the instructor to tell me how to do it but she just kept going “annnd tuck, and tuck and tempo” and I was just standing there (on my tippy toes…with bent...
