I,m so excited and I just can't hide it.

I haven't posted in forever. I've had an amazing summer of travel with friends (group vacas- i highly recommend) and family (Alaska!! amazing) but, the one thing that gets me to post is:

I've been reading this blog for a while now and new girl crush would be an understatement. She has the best. style. ever. AND she does tons of DIY fashion projects. Today's outfit is out of control hot. Basically this is who I want to be when I grow up.

What does this say about me?

I was at (e:businesscheese)'s apartment the other day and this went down:

Makeup artist: explaining his expert application of fake lashes.

Me: leaning in paying really close attention, not realizing my mouth was agape.

(e:Businesscheese): OMG look at Jessica, it's like she is listening to Obama speak!!

Me: Right, except I don't think I even paid that much attention to Obama.

Moral of the story: My actions have spoken louder than words and I love make-up more than Obama.

BFF Conversation #432

Paul: Did you see my finger?

Me: Yes Paul, I did. It's gross.

Paul: I smashed it so hard with a sledgehammer. And then it part of it flapped open and.. (this is where I tune him out because it was disgusting.)

Me: Why did you need a sledgehammer to plant trees?

Paul: After you plant them you hit them a few times. A hurt tree grows faster trying to heal.

Me: Oh. Really? I guess yeah I can see that.

Paul: (laughing) Ok I can't really let you believe that because you're going to go around hitting trees now.

Me: Most gullible moment of 2009.

Swine Flu!

Me: Paul I'm really concerned about swine flu.

Paul: Remember that time when you were really sick in high school and I'd only talk to you through the window?

Me: Yeah.

Paul: That's how it is now. We can only talk through the window.

Disturbingly Awesome

This past weekend was glorious and summery. In celebration of the warm weather the gang and I headed out to the Chelsea art galleries. My favorite piece was a video installation by Adel Abdessemed. It was a short film of all these disgusting creatures (scorpions, snakes, pit bulls, spiders, fighting cocks and one toad) all in some sort of pit. Kinda like animal death match.

Easter Basket

Remember this: ?

Well turns out that I had to actually make my own Easter Basket. I was fine with this because it ensured that it turned out perfect. I also made Sarah one because she was Ms. Cranky Pants from having to work all weekend. After they were done my mom was so proud of me and remarked "Jessica you are just a kindergarden teacher waiting to happen!". I had never though of myself like this. She may be on to something..


  • Sarah's had the pink bunny, mine had the blue bunny.

Mike- My Favorite Visco

A few days ago I picked up my mail (it's not something I do on a regular basis) and in the regular pile of bills and junk was a small package from Mike. I literally squealed in delight as I opened the package and saw what was inside:

Anything involving stickers I love

"Maxin' and relaxing thinking about my girl"

Sweet note from Mikey

Fuzzy pink Hello Kitty Diary with stickers AND glitter pen. Thankfully it's for ages 3 and up so it's safe for me to use.

Bacon- and not in a good way

On my way back to the City from AZ I made my usual stop at Sprouts for my favorite sandwich: bacon, avocado and turkey on multigrain. I was the first customer at the counter and I figured in 5 minutes I'd be on my way to meet Momma Ho for my ride to the airport. It's a fairly simple sandwich to make, however the woman behind the counter took literally 20 minutes to make it. She did a lot of chopping and moving things around and looking confused. When she handed me the final product I had this feeling that I should open the package and inspect the sandwich (which is something I never normally do). Turns out I should have listened to my gut. Once I was on the plane ready for my 5 hour flight I opened the wrapper and took a huge bite and was perplexed. Like a idiot I took a second bite. It was then that I realized what the problem was. Raw bacon. I was deathly ill for the second time in one week. Have you ever been sick in a airplane bathroom? I'd rank it up there with top 5 least favorite things in my life.
