I will admit, the view from my job is fairly epic sometimes. Thank you global warming for the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets I have ever seen. Now please don't kill me. I told the woman at Walmart not to double bag my gallon of milk. She wouldn't listen! There was no reasoning with her!

More rug ideas. Will this torment never end?! It's just like the chelsea boot dilemma of 2011... and 2012... and 2013.

Don't have space for a closet you say?! LLLLL-I-A-RRRRR!

I'm on a serious interiors kick. I think this always happens to me when I'm tired or depressed or sad or anxious or just cold. All I want is a quiet reading corner with a cup of tea to distract from the glass of wine which is what I'm actually drinking, a cozy blanket, and a big leather armchair. Still lusting after this one...

And have been for, oh, about 10 years. If anyone has any thoughts on justifying a chair with a price tag equivalent to my rent please let me know. And don't tell me "it's an investment piece!" because so is a place to live. Also, I think the fashion landscape at the moment is running a little bit on full retard. It's all coats coats coats because it's cold cold cold. So until my entire income stops going toward propane, and my real world problems don't start and end with "I can see my breath in bed" interiors it is. Warm, cozy, lovely interiors.

I want this space.

Also, apparently our new artwork (courtesy of HAL) is mesmerizing...

I struggle with black jeans. On me they feel more Avril Lavigne than Emmanuelle Alt

 Maybe cutting off the hems is just what I need.

Also, purchased the epically spiked and studded Zara leather sneakers on sale this season and am struggling with how to wear them.

Almost returned them 3 times. It is the struggle between the clothes that set your heart aflutter and the clothes that suit your shape and lifestyle. The two don't always match up. The question was whether or not to exchange a fantastic pair of sneakers, something I hadn't worn since grade school gym class, for another black tank, something I almost never take off except to shower. Fluttering valves ultimately won out this time. Hey, it's almost Valentine's Day.

On the hunt for ideas for using my bridesmaid dress after the deed is done. I would post a photo of it here but the bride has 6 months to go and daggers in her eyes and I am afraid of becoming a good target. Kidding! Love you! (No, really she does.)

Also these shoes. I really need to get on the neutral train this Spring and stop wearing "all black everything". Jay-Z has ruined us all. Or was it Kanye? Oh, who can tell the difference these days.

The hubs and I are looking for wedding hairdos. This is the fun part. And after months of living in cold climes and growing his hair out, he finally realized he's not losing it. Such exciting news for a thirty-something male I think.

.. of Quotes

I just want a tiny plot of land with a modest house on it made of simple materials with enough room for breathing.

I just want __________.

Stop right there. Anything that comes after that has no relevance. The wanting is the problem. Halt the wanting and you stop the anguish.

Don't even fill in the blank. The blank doesn't matter. The pain is in the wanting.

Last night when the scale said I had reached my goal weight...

And this morning when it said I was magically ten pounds heavier...

Fucking broken scale.
