Ah, Monday...

1.  I have been working my tail off this weekend on my Etsy shop!  I hope to launch it this week.  Don't worry - you'll be the first to know!

2.  There are few better ways to spend a day working at home than sitting on the living room floor, surrounded by several projects, a to-do list, a cup of tea and my awesome little dog.  Oh, and a little CSI marathon on in the background.

3.  We went to a little games night party last night.  It was complete with Trivial Pursuit 80's Edition (won by John and I), Taboo, Trivial Pursuit 90's Edition, a humping pit bull, confetti cake, and an oven fire!  Good times.

4.  Boyfriend jeans suck!  Isn't the whole idea to have them look like boy's jeans, but fit like women's jeans?  Then, why are so many made to fit what I can only imagine is a melon on toothpicks - and not a woman's body? WTF?

5.So, I haven't quite been cooking a new recipe every week like I vowed to do in the beginning of the year.  However, the sentiment remains - I have been cooking a lot more and trying lots of new things.  One thing I've made a couple of times is spaghetti squash stir-fry.  It looks horrible, but tastes quite yummy.

Oh, happy day!


  1. haha, this list made me laugh. so here is my own list.
    1. i can't wait to see your etsy shop update!!
    2. i too partook in a CSI marathon this weekend! my boyfriend was out of town and thus couldn't make fun of me about it.
    3. i totally have the same problem with boyfriend jeans. they make me look like i am 2x the size of my boyfriend which is not a good look. someone needs to invent a better pair!

  2. i agree with your thoughts on boyfriend jeans. NOT comfortable at all. i don't know why i keep making the mistake of trying to find a worthy pair...

  3. Totally can't wait to see your etsy!! :) Umm... and how weird, I just made spaghetti squash for the first time on Friday night!!! I loved it! It was delish! :) What did you make yours with?? P.s. I found a great recipe for it on this site... :)

  4. I love spaghetti squash! Your stir-fry dish sounds so YUMMY! May I have the recipe (if you don't mind of course)?


  5. I can't wait to see what's going to be in your Etsy shop! I feel the same about the BF jeans too. Not loving the fit of them right now.

  6. I can not wait to see your Etsy shop Kyla! :D
    Oh I love games nights! I was thinking about my last one when I woke up this morning.. I won Absolute Balderdash, in fact that's one I ALWAYS manage to win. I'm rubbish at the rest. If you haven't played you totally should :)
    Jeans on me in general, suck. Small waist, big booty. My friend recently told me to try out Milk and Honey jeans because they have cup sizes for bums! The only problem is they don't get sold in this state - so when I head to Melbourne this year they are on the top of the 'to find' list. Or I might just check out IndiDenim when I have enough time (thanks to y-o-u for the post on them btw)
    Hope you are having an amazing March so far :)

  7. I am SO with you on the boyfriend jeans. I CANNOT find a pair that are not made for a toothpick girl, and I am not a toothpick.

  8. OMGosh, I just LOVETH this look. It is so smokin! One of my favorite looks. Your hair is adorable, too :)
