February 2008


Today’s post is going to have a bit of an administrative angle to it because there are a lot of things happening on the business side of this website that I’d love to share with you. First, I found out last week that this website has been nominated for six Bloggie Awards, including Best American [...]

Antique decanter

This is my favorite of five blue-glass pieces that I inherited from my late Granny Hamilton. You can find pieces exactly like this in almost any antique store, and although at first I didn’t think it fit my style, I find that the unique color adds just the right amount of eclecticism that I like [...]

Coastal town

Jon is holding on very tightly to this memory, especially on mornings like this one when he had to dig us out of another six inches of snow. I know you’re tired of hearing me talk about the snow, but in all the winters I’ve lived in Utah, I have never seen so much snow [...]

Signs of life in January

This was one of the many exotic plants growing in pots outside our hotel room in San Diego, not sure of it’s name, but I love how it and several of the others look like something straight out of a cartoon. Nice change from all the snow covered pine needles surrounding our house in Utah.

Thou shalt not misrepresent thy husband

During the opening weekend at the Sundance Film Festival, Jon and I were invited up by a few friends to see the John Legend concert and then hit a few of the other parties. We weren’t in Park City for more than a couple of minutes before we remembered why we usually avoid the festival: [...]

Palm-sized hippo figurine

I have searched all over Target’s website and I cannot find these anywhere, but I bought this hippo and a tiny elephant at their annual Global Bazaar, which means if there are any at your local Target they won’t be there for long. Because they’re going to pick up and head back to the grasslands [...]

Dog Beach in Coronado

Turns out Coco’s hair is a lot like mine in that it gets very unmanageable and frizzy in humidity. Need to get some product into her coat ASAP.

I think this one has seen a camera before

This was one of Leta’s favorite corners of SeaWorld, even though at first she screamed I DON’T WANT TO SEE THE SEALS! When she realized that they weren’t going to jump over the protective wall and cover her with goo she calmed down and became mesmerized, and then when we tried to leave to go [...]

Be sure to make it to 3 minutes and 44 seconds

When things go BOOM! The 13-year-old boy inside of me thinks this video is exceptionally rad and has watched it four times in a row while shouting DUDE! at the screen several times. Also, some of the comments are so good that I want to stick my cold, wet finger into the Internet’s ear.
