When I Want To Feel Fancy

I devour this super fabulous blog...
Sometimes the rural life gets to me and I need to escape to a much more glamorous frame of mind. I'm so happy there are such beautiful blogs to take me away.

Thinkin' About Fall

I just got a catalog in the mail from Boden. I love their clothes! So classy and simple and pretty. Just how I want to dress. Here are a few of my absolute faves....
Now who's going to take me back-to-school shopping?


This built-in is simply beautiful. I think I would have to spice it up sooner or later. Give it a good wallpaper backdrop or a fancy trim. But for now the simplicity is perfect.

Do You Want the Top or Bottom?

I'm longing for a vacation that involves a good bunk room. And also involves a lake or a beach. And something called peace and quiet. All of those things are alluding me lately.

Has It Really Been That Long?!

This weekend is my 20 year reunion. I don't understand how that is possible because I'm not old enough to be out of high school for 20 years! I don't feel old enough to have anything be 20 years ago. But *sigh* I am. So tonight I'll mingle with friends from the past and catch up on old times.
It will be fun:)
How's this for an 80's flash back? I'm the 2nd from the left. We were portraying Gun's & Roses for a pep assembly. Remember those? Oh, I loved them. I think I was pretty rockin'.

I'm so excited it's killing me! Mad Men starts back up July 25th!!!! My Sunday nights will be occupied for the next few months. If you need me I'll be available Monday mornings. But only to discuss Mad Men.
The women, looking stunning.
The men. So bad and yet soooo good.

Not everything should be recycled. Some of these I love, some not so much. But it does get your brain working.

If you want an easy and still super yummy recipe, try this...
 1 cup fat free evaporated milk, 1/2 cup chocolate syrup, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, 3 cups ice. Whirl it around in the blender and top with a dollop of whipped cream. Mmmmmm :)
Thanks, JSP!

Novogratz Dream

Last night I had a dream about Bob and Cortney Novogratz from Sixx Design fame. I love them. And I have read so many blog posts on them that I decided I didn't need to do one. But they were in my dream. And we were great friends. And we hung out and had such a great time that I figured I had better show off some of my new "friends' " designs. It's so nice to have friends in high places. Even if it's just in my dreams.
I love their sense of family. They get it right. And their style is inspiring. I love how they are so real that I do feel as if they could be my friends. But we'll just keep it on a tv viewing level for now, and an occasional dream.
