just add flannel.

Glad to know they still make ridiculous {awesome} Doc Martens. These would go well with my new Pearl Jam and Alice in Chains albums*. 1994 FTW!

*Both are good, even. I know. I can’t believe it either. Acknowledging that the best new music is simply revived old music makes me feel so old.



Well, hi.

Welcome to my new blog. If you didn’t know, I’ve been blogging since January 2007 right here.

I’ll be here from now on.

A bit about me:

1. Currently I am 26. Married to my high-school sweetheart, Jonathan. Right-handed. Left-winged. A technical writer by trade. We have an energetic and loyal yellow lab named Sadie, and she always makes me smile.

2. I live in the suburbs of Davis County, Utah. I love my house because it’s full of memories and stuff I love. I like to cook and entertain here. My husband and I {with the help of family} have re-done pretty much everything inside the house, and put lots of time into the yard, too. I rearrange the furniture and decor {frequently} for fun. It’s absolutely never finished, and I don’t want it to be.

3. I prefer old homes with lots of history and plumbing leaks. I prefer cities with culture, diversity and constant action. But I like my situation anyway.

4. I am working on my MBA. I have a bachelors in English from USU. I love to read. I could be a professional student. I wish I had gone to school to be an interior designer. Scratch that. I wish I were ballsy enough to go back and do that now.

5. Love: blogs and blogging. Taking pictures. Writing lists. Jewelry {making, collecting}. Hostessing and entertaining. Hello Kitty. Planning and going on trips. Thrift stores, garage sales, and flea markets. Daydreaming about running away from it all and starting over. Coffee. Office supplies/ stationary/ stickers. Planning outfits. Stacks of clean laundry. iPod on shuffle. Laying in the sun. Hummus and pita. Lip gloss. Cocktails. Irreverent and/or ironic humor. Unlikely style icons. Rain.

6. Hate: people asking when I’m going to have kids. Processed meat. Snow. “LOL”. Television.

I hope you enjoy my new blog, and thanks for stopping by!
