A day late, but hey, a post is a post, right?


1 :: A lovely dress from Anthro, given to me by my mom. Do you think it’s too much white to wear to a wedding?

2 :: I’ve started putting all of my headbands on the cupcake tower I registered for. I put it on the list SURE that I would be using it all the time…but…alas. Most cupcakes that get made ’round here are eaten before they have a chance to go on the tower.

3 :: My bedside table needs some serious organization. It’s ridic. I’m currently reading Ilium, which is this heavy-duty sci-fi book that I only recommend if you like that sort of thing. I do. Next up is Wolf Hall, which I’ve heard is also only worth reading if you’re obsessed with Tudor history. I am. It’s a little out of control. I counted and I own 28 books about it.

4 :: I love the shape of his little butt! He kills me. I don’t know what I’d do without him.

5 :: A Polaroid from my 22nd birthday party at Benihana (oof, four years ago?). I’ve been to Benihana on my birthday every year since I was 8. Featured in it: Dave, who had only been my boyfriend for a couple of months, his little brother (visiting us this week!) minus about six inches he would grow in the next couple of years, a girl who ended up being the most evil person I’ve ever accidentally befriended, and my three best girlfriends (including this one).

6 :: A trip to the pharmacy. Also, since I was getting something boring, I treated myself to Moroccan Oil, which is apparently a miracle substance. I’ll also report back on that.

7 :: The old camera cord, which Baxter pulled into his crate and ate while we were at dinner. I was so worried he’d eaten metal, but so far he’s, ah, regular.

8 :: Except he puked on the bed and then the carpet. The vet has been notified; they think he’s fine. (He’s sort of a pukey dude, so this wasn’t super out-of-the-ordinary.)

9 :: The best – BEST – kitchen item I’ve used in a long time. A must for small families who don’t use all of their fresh herbs in one meal.

10 :: A gift from my incredible and well-read mother-in-law. The title is true. I will cut you with my intellect.

11 :: After Bax puked on the bed, it’s been hard to re-make. Not sure why. But it’s wayyy less satisfying to get into an unmade bed, so I fixed that situation rull fast after I took the photo.

12 :: I bought two of these. They changed my life. I would like ten more.

Wanna do 12of12, or see what it looks like when a real photographer does it? Here.

  1. i have been so excited for this post this month!

  2. Um, that headband tray is SO SO cute!!! And you can totally wear that Anthro dress to a wedding.

    • Can I? What if I’m doing a reading in the wedding? I should just ask the bride but I don’t want to make her crazy since she’s getting married in a week.

  3. That headband cupcake stand is brilliant. And shut up! Now I HAVE to have an herb keeper!

  4. Love the idea. Going out and buying a cupcake tower today…and NOT using it for cupcakes. Genius!

  5. Benihana! That place is my joint. I go there for my birthday every year, too. And I still giggle excitedly when I order the “Splash and Meadow.” I don’t know why.

  6. Your blog is everything I wish mine could be. I used it to convince my bf to run a half marathon with me, & now I’m using it to convince him that we need a puppy once we move now that we have finished graduate school.

    Wish me luck 🙂 & post more pics of Baxter por favor.

  7. Must read that book.

    My cats have been puking ALL over the place. New diet…poor things.

  8. also pls note in #2 how perfect that photo looks in the frame! Thanks to Jesse’s dad for taking that pic.
