Weekend Getaway

It's likely that this weekend is the last one McW and I will get to spend together before he leaves the country for work. I'm taking the day on Monday to elongate the weekend and that opens up a tiny world of opportunity.

We're considering a couple options.

1. The mountains. It's only April but we are dying to get away and build a campfire and do some fishing. There are a few options an hour or two away. The only obstacle? The elements. Snow and cold may get in the way but there is always cuddling.

2. Some sort of gambling location. We are pretty close to a couple regional gambling centers. It's the black jack. I can't stop thinking about it.

It may be best just to head into the mountains. The mountains are indisputably beautiful...72 year olds with worn out coin cups and hot pink lipstick? Less beautiful.

Here's to weekend adventure!

It's the Brown Bandit!

Craigslist and I are on very good terms at the moment. I purchased the bicycle pictured below from a tiny, tiny little man for $60. It's in the shop right now for a quick tune up and some new tires but it will be ready tomorrow.

Spring hit hard today. Sunroof open? Check. Window down? Check. Better attitude? Check.

And it's payday? WHAT!? Little chunks of heaven are just falling from the sky today. Here's hoping all of you (hi Mom) are experiencing the same kind of good fortune.

Tomorrow is payday...

So today, I'm trying to keep myself distracted from mentally spending it all.

How? With the following:

1.) It's pretty nice outside. Nice weather = cheap thrill.

2.) Tiny Wings.

3.) Work. In between looking out the window, Tiny Wings and writing this entry.

But tomorrow? It's ON!

Oh yes.

OH! Yes.

The dress? Jcrew. Our sweet little town just picked up J.Crew in our shopping mall. It's been a long time coming.

The shoes? Urban Outfitters. They're suede. And awesome. And just the right height. 

Alright. Back to Tiny Wi...back to work.

The case for the DODOcase.

For those of you who like to keep things simple...and for those of you who are lucky enough to own an iPad (or Kindle):

The DODOcase.

I don't necessarily know how to express my excitement over this discovery. It's been around for a while...I'm just a little slow on the uptake. It's nearly pay day and this case is VERY reasonably priced (a deadly combination).

The only decision left to make is which color to get on the inside?

Who am I kidding? That butter cream yellow one has my name all over it.

Need to buy one too?:

Things I Would Appreciate in My Home:

For the record player, the books.

For the T.V. and components.

For my head. And bed.

For the fun of it.

A huge improvement on my already red coffee table.

To replace the boring chair in my corner.

For the bathroom.

I've had A LOT of spare time on my hands lately (unfortunately). I've been on Craigslist and design blogs (mostly and all week. Now I want to throw away, organize and purchase some more functional furniture. Furniture that is less 'I've had this since I was 19.'

Cats and Karaoke...maybe Gambling?

The lives of McW's feline and mine have intersected and I plan to post a much more in depth synopsis of their progress. However, I don't plan on doing it until there is a happy ending. At present, they are definitely still trying to figure out why the hell they are stuck in the same studio apartment together.

We did catch a rare and musical moment on camera the other night. Here it is:

It's possible that we are the only ones that think this is funny - but I'm sharing it with you on the off chance you find a little humor in it as well.

We left the little fur balls alone together last night when we went to a dinner party with some great friends. This was my kind of dinner party:

1. Bowl of Cheetos on the counter.
2. Plenty of wine.
3. Two huge helpings of lasagna.
4. Brownies. Brownies made with crushed up pieces of Thin Mints. Yeah.

Post over-eating, we hit the town for a little karaoke. We walked into one of our favorite watering holes to find it totally packed. Still, we each made our song selections and handed them in. An hour and a half later, McW finally got to sing one of his favorites.

Then I tried one that I haven't sang for karaoke before: Mr. Big - The Next to Be With You. I've got the hair for it. Turns out that people like to sing along with that one. Singing along just makes you feel good. When you look out at a room full of people singing the song you're singing, you're all friends. So. I'm adding Mr. Big to the karaoke arsenal.

Also included in the arsenal:

Natural Woman - Aretha
Gold Digger - Kanye (including the sexy backup dancing courtesy of McW)

Lastly - we're considering a trip over state lines this Sunday. What lies over state lines? Gambling. The hope of multiplying what we're going down there with.

Here's hoping!
