What a funny housewarming giftThese too. 

My brother is at Sundance and I can't wait to hear all about it! 

Look how adorable my boyfriend is : ) 

A friend and I were talking about phobias the other day. There are some really interesting ones. Here is a small list of my favorite: 

Bibliophobia- Fear of books. 
Chromophobia or Chromatophobia- Fear of colors.
- Cyberphobia- Fear of computers or working on a computer.
- Hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia- Fear of the number 666.
Pteronophobia- Fear of being tickled by feathers.
Rhabdophobia- Fear of being severely punished or beaten by a rod, or of being severely criticized. Also fear of magic(wand).
Zemmiphobia- Fear of the great mole rat. (Only one.) 


Summer Body Challenge

My best friend is amazing at motivating and just created a Summer Body Challenge for a group of us girls.We are all doing Shakeology and any workout program. I will be using some of Jillian Michaels' material, mostly the No Trouble Zones workout.  I am really looking forward to starting in a few weeks. She is getting married in August so there are tons of important dates coming up this year!


I prefer not to

The illustrations have changed so much over the last year or so. Still love it: LearnSomethingEveryday.

My family just gave me a Crockpot for Christmas and I am so excited to start using it. While researching yummy meals I came across this story of a woman who decided to use her Crockpot everyday for a year. While a little Julie & Julia, it's pretty fun going through her recipes. Check out her table of contents.

I started watching Some Like It Hot last night. I just can't help but think where Marilyn Monroe would be in her career these days.

All of you know how much I love The Great Gatsby. Look me in the screen and tell me know you're not excited about Leo as Jay Gatsby.


Ukelele Love

A friend of mine was just telling me about this guy. He's is so unbelievably talented.

I agree with every one of these hair resolutions. Especially #2. And #4.

Possibly my favorite article of this week. Old-Lady Movie Night: 10 Things I Hate About You.

Build Your Collection Ring. Such a good Maid of Honor dress! It's something Samantha from Sexy and the City would wear : )

Fell in love with a new blog; The Daily Muse.And from that I found out how amazing Kate and Andy Spade's house is. All the books on the coffee table... I just love it.



Everything I know about life, I learned from John Hughes

I would like to read this book

Eleven things you believed as a kid. (I still believe some of these.)

Such adorable vows. His pledge to her:
"i will kill the spiders. i will share my fries with you when you’ve finished all yours and are still hungry. i won’t ever pop my collar. i will never be rude to your tummy- when i hear it growl and gurgle, i promise to bend down and reply respectfully. i will eat the mushrooms when we order the supreme pizza. i will kiss the papercuts. and the door-slammed finger. and the counter-bumped hip. i’ll try my hardest not to get annoyed when you whisper questions and comments during movies. i will be the big spoon. i will let you win at wrestling. sometimes. other times i will not. i will go faster. harder. i will pull when you want. and tease you when you don’t. i will send you random txts and leave you silly gifts. not always. not on schedule. just whenever i want to. whenever i think you need one. or seven. i will check your tire pressure. and remind you to take your car in. i will hold your hand. i will love you. i will love you. i will love you." 

Marilyn Monroe still influences women. Have you seen My Week With Marilyn yet?! Go. Now. One of my favorite Marilyn quotes: "I restore myself when I'm alone." 

I follow Jason Segel's twitter (@jasonsegel) and saw this post from him yesterday: 
"My favorite thing, maybe ever. I am in awe. Response on the way --" with a link to the video below. Ah, the power of social networking.
