peas out.

By 8/30/2007

we're leaving for the beach at 5am tomorrow morning. brian went to virginia this evening to buy a boat (probably) and he's bringing it back tonight - yes, to sit beside the OTHER boat that lives in front of our house - and then we have to get it to the beach early so he can park it there.

before you think we need to be on mtv cribs/boats, let me divulge. boat #1 doesn't run. hasn't ever. since he's had it. it just sitssitssitisstisits in front of our house. and its big. so its all in front. just the boat.

he's selling that one on ebay. i was sort of amused he did so much mentioning of me in the ad. crazy, huh? you'd think i WANTED him to get rid of it? anyways, he wrote a novel about it. i was oddly impressed when i read it.

in conclusion, have a great long weekend. avoid laboring at all costs. buy brian's boat, and holla at your girl.

i'm going to order this book, and i'll let you know what happens. it looks super cute, so that counts for something. and i like how its recipes from the 60s and 70s so it shouldn't be too difficult.

how cool are these teas?
each flower can brew up to 80 oz. of tea and then be displayed in cold water for a week.

perfect for a gift for a tea drinker.

alphabet cards from pottery barn

By 8/24/2007
i got a new pottery barn catalog yesterday and i am thrilledthrilledthrilled to see HALLOWEEN stuff in it. i love halloween.

so they have these alphabet cards, that pottery barn wants us to frame. i kind of like the idea? its different at least. you get 3 different fonts and some extra vowels.

potting extravaganza

By 8/21/2007

i sort of had a fit at ikea and got 2934 matching planters. but this was pre-meditated, so i guess that doesn't really qaulify as a fit.

ann boleyn had a sister named mary who also got it on with henry VIII, and with the king of france. apparently, she wasn't a slut, just friendly.

so excited. the movie is coming out in february. is natalie portman *tricky* enough to play ann?

cb numero deuce

By 8/19/2007

while we're at it, CB2 has some lovely vases. i don't think i would place an order online just for them, but if i was getting some else, like this hawt floor lamp, then yes, they would be mine.


By 8/19/2007
i've always liked this pear wall hanging by marimekko from CB2.i first liked this fruit idea when i saw sarah jessica parker's kitchen at her house in the hamptons. the apple prints are like 9348hundred dollars, so the pear route might be a better option.


By 8/18/2007
brian and i are going to start composting our food scraps. clean air gardening has several composting crocks that aren't expensive and are easy on the eye.

they're vacuumed sealed, so no funny smells, and we can use the compost to garden with!

summer tomatoes

By 8/18/2007

we have so many tomatoes in the summer -- we grow them, my dad grows them and gives them to us, my mother-in-law brings them to us from the farmer's marker -- we have to start thinking of new things to do with them.

the usual is with fresh mozzarella and basil - you can't go wrong with that.

last week, we had diced tomatoes, garbanzo beans, 1 small red onion, juice of 1 lime, fresh cilantro and fresh corn off the cob all mixed together. it turned out delicious!

brian k.

By 8/15/2007
i went to middle school and highschool with a boy named brian kuebler. he was my boyfriend's best friend. he was really funny and used words like "splat!" as an adjective.

now he's an artist and he lives in brooklyn with another old friend, karen! (she's his girlfriend now)

here they are, painted by brian.
he's good, that brian kuebler.
