Whew!  Happy Monday afternoon, my friends my buddies.  I’m relieved to report that the hurricane’s over, and we made it out alive.  Thank you ALL for your incredibly kind well-wishes and concern!  I’ll tell you, there were some light breezes that, for a moment there at the height of the storm, we thought *for sure* [...]

DIY CHALKBOARD ‘N’ BIRCH WEDDING | ←THAT + VINEYARD = PLEASURE | Also, a real bride’s perspective on The First Look Argument… after having lived to tell about it. Aaaaaand my feelings on mustaches.

So, apologies in advance if this post gets a touch out of hand. How’s your Thursday afternoon going – going well?  I’m also accepting “good!”  - see, no judgment here at TKB.  Yeah, so that was some intense blog post titling, eh, up there?  I’ve always wanted to write “bride lives to tell… [enter life-changing [...]

AMAZEBALLS DIY OUTDOOR WEDDING | Plus, Your Bachelor Pad Recap (OR, ‘How I Almost Vomited Four Times’) Also, caught with my pants down during that earthquake.

I have news.  I now know what an earthquake feels like, since, as many of you know, one just happened along what seems to be the entire eastern seaboard, including parts of Canada.  I’ve always wondered how I’d react in an earthquake situation, and I’m proud to say that I know the answer to that [...]

SEASIDE GLAMOUR + I NEED HER DRESS | fuchsia + mint + white delight | Plus, The Bambeen… and I need a little advice from you guys. Also, holy crap I’ve lost my mind.

Second verse, same as the first.  I have to warn you, yet again, that today’s post got so out of hand I CAN’T EVEN TELL YOU.  I’m afraid even to read it over for spelling and punctuation.  I fear my own rampant oddness will get the best of me, like two parallel universes (universi?) colliding.

Oh, is it late afternoon already?  HAHAHAHAH, how interesting.  Time flies I guess when you’re mocking celebrities and arranging weddings.  Sigh. Now, let it be known that I desperately wanted to title the tail end of this post “I like big d***s and I cannot lie,” but I thought it might, just might, be NSFW. [...]

I just applied a snake bite venom removal survival tactic to my keyboard’s face.  This is my life.   Alison spills coffee on her spacebar, Alison calls upon her experience in reality survival show watching, Alison puts lips to spacebar, and sucks.  So I’m sitting here with poppy seeds, what I believe to be a [...]

Ok, so just so you know, today’s feature makes my heart beat so far out of my chest that it jogs up my sternum and slaps me in the face with my aorta.  (I should note here that my aorta’s a bitch.  She face slaps with an intensity and meaning that cannot be explained without [...]

As I sit here in the gorgeous afternoon sun, protected of course by window panes because I’m WORKING INDOORS, and tolerating the puffs of wind escaping Bambino’s behind as he slumbers on his day-pillow beneath my desk – puffs which, mind you, are as pungent as they are endless… I have this one thought floating [...]

Ok, I’m going to put it out there that “a puppy licking the bottom of your foot right where your toes and your rest-of-foot (listen, I’m no podiatrist) meet” is quite possibly the most tickly (listen, I’m no grammatatist) feeling that exists in what I’ve found to be the crazy, limitless world of tickle potential.  [...]

RIGHT.  So lemme get this straight.  Notably sane Michelle Money who has suddenly developed concern for others tipped off Ashley that Bentley was a douchebag, Ashley tells Chrisharrison (don’t call him Chris, it’s not his name, Chrisharrison is his name) that someone warned her about Bentley being a douchebag (or as everyone on that show [...]

So, it’s Monday afternoon and I think it’s appropriate, first and foremost, to thank those of you who so kindly and perhaps a bit absent-mindedly predicted that I’d be raptured.  That was sweet of you, and I’m glad you think I’m angelic enough to go north instead of south.  To those of you who figured [...]
