i'm a googler. if i need to do something, or diagnose something, or learn something, or identify something, i google.
so here google. offer this up.
i took the microfiber covers off of the couch and washed them in the washing machine.
woolite and handwash cycle.
then i air dryed them.
and put them back on.
and everything is FINE.
they are clean. they didn't shrink. they don't have water spots.
it is possible. and i recommend it.

prowler remains alert and in charge of the household menagerie
i discovered this lamp in brian's mom's basement and invited it to come live with us. it needs a new shade. remind me where to find inexpensive drum shades?
making curtains for a client. maybe i need some?
i changed the shelves again. you can do it - steroids can help.
two things here:
1) OUR HOT TUB IS RUNNING. first time in 3 years. we bought it on craigslist and subsequently had to build a new deck, pass 4 acts in congress, and save our pennies. we got in it last night. delightful.
2) our neighbor's tree fell across our backyard. all the way across. very george of the jungle. insurance company isn't here yet to assess if it was an act of god - imagine.

john and alexis got married at chatauqua park, at the foot of flatirons. it was gorgeous. and so much fun.
the wedding band was great american taxi (with vince herman from leftover salmon!)
our bridesmaids gifts were custom books from blurb. perfect.
alexis was beautiful and tiny.
feathers were spotted in hair
poison ivy was hidden
well hey there. i'm back.
everything went swimmingly. full report coming soon.
in the meantime, does every magazine being published right now SUCK or what?
i tried capturing my attention with at least NINE different magazines while i was gone and NOTHING.
traditional home, dwell, us weekly, elle, metropolitan home, marie claire...
i could not find a single article in any of these that interested me in the least. or good pictures. they're all going to go bust if the bar gets any lower...
please jesus let michelle adams' new endeavor, lonny magazine, entertain me.

so we're headed off to boulder. and i'm a shaking, not-eating, just moved about a 100lb dresser upstairs by myself, screamed at brian b/c he got the wrong oreos on steroids nutjob.
i went with this dress (in brown of course) -- can't find a pic of the brown one online.
one nu-bra and my first pair of spanx and it's looking pretty good.
i have a long dress for the rehearsal dinner, and lots of pants packed, so no one will know how i suffer. it's best that way, i'm such a selfless person really...
i won't be back until tuesday. so please make do.
here are a few of my favs to keep you occupied:
little green notebook
my favorite and my best
oh happy day
the estate of things

brian has an interesting way of pairing his collared shirts and undershirts.
he wears both everyday, and it's always an expected mix.
i support this.
don't get me wrong, i have them scattered all abouts the house for rowdy to lay on, and otherwise luxuriate on.
but the floor?
yesterday i purposely went and stepped on one at pottery barn that was on display beside a bed. ground my foot into it and everything, just to express my displeasure with how dirty it would get.
could this really be tolerable? in the kitchen!
do you have one on your floor?

friends, i need you now more than ever.
due to the leprosy all over my legs (poison ivy) i cannot wear the cuteasall dress WITH POCKETS that i got for the wedding this weekend.
i'm going to have to go long. i got permission from alexis - now i just need to find something.
has anyone seen anything long and brown?
i hate caulking.
my couch is dying a slow and spotty death.
what am i going to do about this?
choices seemed more black and white at bonnaroo
does anyone else get excited about this other than me?
