Do you guys read Ashilna’s blog, The Decorista? She has this feature where she does “Ten things that rocked my world this week.”
Im gonna do a little mini version of that. So here goes:
1. All of your nice comments revived my interest in blogging. You dont know how hard it is to come up with stuff to write about every day, ESPECIALLY without feedback! So, THANK YOU. You guys are awesome.
2. Taking old crappy jewelry and painting it:
(Also note that Im covered in paint and that I am almost done losing the baby weight! Been working out 3x a week!!! YAY!)
3. The hotness that is my blog reader who ordered the belt I picked out for him and sent me a picture:
Even though it was from the UK it came in less than 3 days!
4. The inspiration that is this MEXICO tapestry hanging in my grandma’s “ice cream parlor”… (pool house with a retro soda machine.)
5. Crazy stuff you find outside in NJ:
Saw a skunk at night too, but it was too dark to get a good photo… and not worth the risk.
6. Making tremendous paintings:
Its 78″ x 93″ minus a few after stretching.
Even though they are SO HARD to sell, I love making them. Bigger the better. If anyone is interested, email me. Ill come build it inside your house if you live within an hours distance from NYC.
There is more stuff: like these photos from the blog Black, White and Yellow:
Blanket headboard, someone do this:
Black lines, Im always a sucker:
And of course, everything I write about usually rocks my world…. like fishtail braids=life changer. And my little boy learned how to roll over this week, started grabbing things and is generally the most pleasant baby on earth – except at 4 am, when he wakes up EVERY NIGHT. If I could just sleep for more than 3 consecutive hours at a time, I think my life would be pretty damned near perfect.
PS, Still didnt watch Jersey Shore yet. I might resume recaps of that.
Also, you know what didnt rock my world:
Real housewives of NYC reunion. When I was in Yeshivah, some teacher told me that the “afterlife” is an airing of a video of your life, you get to watch everything you did over and over again. Of course, if you were good, this was like heaven, because you were proud of yourself. If you were bad, EVERYONE YOU EVER TALKED ABOUT, OR WRONGED would be sitting there watching it with you and so basically, you think you got away with stuff, but at the end of the day, you still have to answer to these people in the afterlife = HELL.
Now, I dont really even believe in hell, BUT, someone kill me if this is not an EXACT DESCRIPTION of a RHONYC reunion?
It was hell to sit through and I dont ever want to watch those women on TV again. You know what the whole problem with this show is: The women hate each other, they dont have relationships that matter so who cares if they make up and break up? Also, none of the women want to show their real lives so they manufacture plot lines revolving around things that we are not allowed to see on TV. They are still trying to pretend these women arent on a TV show. THE ONLY way to save it, is to allow the show to become aware of itself and to air things like: Jill trying to “ice out” bethany out of filming. Thats actually interesting.
ANYWAY, have a great weekend everyone!!!
Oh yea, and CRAZY STUPID LOVE. And Ryan Gosling.
