that’s a sneak peek from an upcoming feature I’m excited to share (I mean, obvs.; just look at it) but also don’t want to associate in full-feature-form with this smorgasbord of a blog post conversation today.  We have other fish to fry and/or lightly bake with low-fat gluten free cornflake crumbs, and all that starts…..

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.

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 [...]

HAPPY AFTERNIZZLE, DARLINGS! Aright here we go… I believe it was Friday, girls and boys, when we stumbled upon something I believe I will choose never to speak of again on this blog.  Something so hilariously in bad taste, something so phenomenally beyond the pale of what should happen on television, let alone in reality… [...]

RUSTIC DIY LOVE + Editor’s Notes on Relationships | Mason Jars Shall Live Forever + Could You *Imagine* Leaving Your Beloved Over Money? + Bambo’s Back.

Because “I Didn’t Know I Was Pregnant: Baby in My Sweatpants” seemed like a show unbefitting of dinnertime programming, we watched the only other option our trusty little Tivo suggestions folder offered us, which turned out to be a couple of episodes from MTV’s “True Life” series.  The series happens to be a tried and [...]

Happy day, darlings!  Ok, it’s weird that I just started out this post like that, because I have some unfortunate news, my friends.  It seems… well it seems it’s happened again. Remember that time when I told you about that couple fighting outside at around 3am, right under our window, and how it kept the [...]

Happy Monday afternoon, darlings!  Did you guys enjoy your weekends?  I sure hope so.  For us, this weekend was chock-full of family time, so it was busy busy busy.  My niece and nephew along with their mommy and daddy (my sister/brother-in-law), plus my kick-ass big brother (not to be confused with my beloved even-though-he’s-25-years-old-I-still-wanna-consider-myself-his-other-mother little [...]

Anywho, afternoon, lovelies!  What is it, like 3:30 EST?  Yeah, you’ll get why in a sec.  Ok, so I just gotta tell you that we’ve got relatively amazeballs things happening sooner and later this month, [...]

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 [...]

Happy Thursday, friendlies!  It’s a sunny day where I am, and Bambino just wrapped up his 4th semi-barf of the morning.  Don’t worry, vet says he’s fine, so we’re not overly concerned about it.  But I’ve got to say, watching a six and a half month old frenchie dry heave blueberries and kibble has made [...]

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.  [...]
