sugared rose petals

More packing today. Ugh. I'm getting there, slowly but surely. I'm starting to realize just how much crap I have all over this house though. I got out a big box and threw a bunch of it away today. Do I really need the last 5 1/2 months of People magazine? Noooooope. Gone. There was a lot of other stuff that just kind of had me shaking my head. At what point did I decide that some of this junk was worth keeping? Clearly it's not good enough to pack up and move.

Last night TJ called after I had taken my sleeping pill. Which, by the way, I find completely unfair. I agree to things that I would never agree to when not under the influence. Like, "So I'm going to get a whole new set of golf clubs, cool?" or "I was thinking we could get a gigantic flat screen TV instead of eating for the next 8 months. Does that sound like a plan?"

Mary knows what else he talks to me about. I've probably agreed to name my first child something stupid like Mickey (don't ask...). Anyway, when I woke up this morning, I seemed to remember him saying he bought me the first 3 seasons of 30 Rock. DVD's are incredibly cheap over there. He got Kylie like 500 cartoons for $40 or something. I also remembered him telling me we could go to Nashville when he got back.

Two very random things, but two true things. So I will now be caught up on all of my 30 Rock's and I will be headed to Nashville shortly! Does anyone know what we should do while we're there???

Tomorrow Jers has to get all her shots and I have to get my oil changed. That means I actually have to get up, get dressed, and put on make-up tomorrow. Gawd. I know I keep saying this, but I really don't know what I'm going to do when I have to get a job again.

Ok, ok I won't stall anymore. I know you're bored out of your mind and you're only reading this because you have a burning desire to know what the 4th and final universally flattering color is. That is, if you haven't already Googled it.

The 4th color is rose. Apparently it compliments the natural blush of all skin tones. Plus it makes you look way tan :)

I wish I felt confident wearing eyeshadow. I feel retarded when I do. I just can't get used to it. I am in love with this gorgeous pink shade though. It's pink without being gaudy and the sparkle is just right. Might even make a girl change her mind about eyeshadow...

I love bags. We all know this. But I'm really loving all the pleated bags that are popping up lately. This one has some really pretty, yet casual fabric, but the pleats make it look fancy and sophisticated. I love the combo of those two and the simplicity of the design.

This necklace is to die for! The round piece used to be a buckle! How cool is that? I love the pearls too. So delicate and the perfect offset for the silver of the necklace.

I could never pull this skirt off. I don't have precious tan legs. But it's so fun and flirty and perfect for summer. I don't know why, but I keep seeing someone wear it to a baseball game with a little white tank. We'll never know why I think the things I do. I love the lace around the waistband!

Well, that wraps up my 4 universally flattering colors series. Kind of sad...I like having a little mini-theme to post about. I'd appreciate suggestions...Hope you enjoyed the info! Here's the link to the article where I got the info.

Have sweet, rose colored dreams!



  1. Aubrey and I have been to Nashville many times and I still have no idea what there is to do there. We did the whole "Music Row" thing the first time. Every other time we were just there for him to we pretty much went straight to "the gig" and back to his brother's house (His brother, SIL, and our niece and nephew live there)...If I talk to my SIL before you take your trip I will ask for suggestions. East Nashville is a very artsy part of town...we sort of toyed with the idea of moving there once and did a little drive by house shopping.

  2. So did you get the job? Or are you just moving and going to keep looking? The necklace IS gorgeous. I gasped. Hear you about the eye shadow, I didn't start wearing it until I was about 35. Put it on, wash it off. Have a ton of it, never wear it. I do love Dirty Girl shimmer powder though, I like the Smart Cookie. It's just a pale gold sheen. Doesn't look like eye shadow, just like some amazing natural luminosity on your eyelids. It would look good on a blonde person!

  3. Yikes, moving is no fun, but it sounds like you have lots of things to look forward to! I'm excited for you:)

    Nashville isn't the most exciting place in the world. Maybe check out the Opryland Hotel if you've never been before- it's amazing, you can ride a boat inside and it's a great place to take pictures. Or it's pretty fun to walk around downtown and look in all the western apparel shops and country music bars!
