Update

~I'm in the market for a comfy, not-too-bulky chair and I came across this. I would NEVER commit to something so bold, but how fab would this look up against all my grey and white?



~Currently OBSESSED with Jo Malone's Blackberry & Bay scent. Never would I ever think that I'd lust over Bay (maybe Bey), but this makes me want to sniff my wrists all day. Too bad I only have the sample that I got when I bought my diffuser...



~I changed my mind about where I want to go on my Big Girl Trip (not to be confused with Eat, Pray, Love). Dreaming of sipping Prosecco, catching a Serie A game and taking leisurely strolls through piazzas....

Grandma: "Andie, Daddy will be home soon and, if you aren't in bed, he might not ask me to baby-sit anymore."

Andie (thinking for a minute): "Will Granddad still be able to baby-sit?" 
Nothing seems to faze this girl.

~I move in 2 weeks! Come help me pack all 200 of my glasses! I can offer you wine!

~C-Mah and I leave for our girls' trip in less than a week. I am incredibly impressed I have refrained from starting packing already. Mentally, I know every outfit change, of course.


~Finally, this made my bus ride into work:

What not to do when you are envious
Kathy Rowe, 53, turned Jerry Rice and Janice Ruhter's life into an utter living hell after they bought a house she saw as her "dream home." Rowe targeted the couple with a series of increasingly disturbing pranks, starting with signing them up for dumb magazine subscriptions and then escalating to the absolutely horrifying. ABC reported Rowe signed Ruhter up for a series of Craigslist ads for sex, telling men they should push their way into the home and then gave out the address.
WTF is wrong with people?!

Movie: Chef

I made sure to watch some movies over the holidays -- in between episodes of The Good Wife -- and I loved Chef:



A great cast, free-style script and to-die-for food. Seriously -- don't watch on an empty stomach! Available for rent on iTunes.

Product Review: Lululemon Wunder Under Crop (roll down)


Okay, this is not a review.

These have been around for awhile and everyone loves them, so I'm not going into any detail. I WILL show you how great the special edition laser-cut ones look though. That's the kind of friend I am.

Special edition or regular edition, I highly recommend you get yourself a pair for the gym!
