Mom to Iris. Wife to Todd. Our little family lives at the foothills of the Ozark Mountains in Fayetteville, Arkansas. We love it here and I love sharing little bits of our life.

Last night Todd proposed to me! I seriously feel like I’m dreaming. I’m so surprised, so incredibly happy. It was the most amazing thing that has ever happened to me. We’re going to get MARRIED!

More pictures and details will come a little later.

A New Year

Our night ended up being very low key, but very perfect. Apparently Eric paused our countdown with TiVo, so really we counted down after we got our champagne in order around 12:10 or so. Dick Clark’s voice was a buzz kill, but the lonely island videos brought us right back up to speed.

Hope everyone had a safe and wonderful night!

T-shirt Weather

Last year I spent Christmas in snowy New York City and Washington D.C. This year however, I spent it in Memphis for the first time in five years. I got lots of amazing gifts from my amazing friends and family. Thanks to everyone!!

And as soon as I’m not sick,
I’m going on a shopping (and eating) spree…

While in Memphis..

Kristen Deets (a friend since the 6th grade) was in town fron NYC

Spent time w/ my step-sister Roxanne who was in town from D.C.
(I totally stole this picture from you Rox)

Chilled w/ “Ryan Gosling” at the Hi-Tone

For the very few of you who don’t know about Graceland Too..

There’s this guy, Paul McLeod, who lives in Holly Springs, MS and is a complete Elvis FREAK. He has devoted his entire house to Elvis and gives tours of it 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. I’ve been twice before (once at 2 am on Easter). The tour lasts waaay too long at almost 2 hours. He gets going and just doesn’t stop talking. Almost everything that comes out of his mouth are obvious, random lies all dealing with celebrites and millions of dollars. All the while, his dentures are pretty much just dangling from his gums. The tour was complete with him singing Jail House Rock, dancing a little jig, and showing us his home-aid electric chair in the carport.

The gold suit he will be buried in:

Even the ceilings are coated in craziness.

That’s him…

He has pictures of everyone that’s ever taken the tour.

He likes TV?

Shaking his hips like Elvis.

Mom.. about to kill me for taking her there.

And what does an electric chair have to do with Elvis?

We survived!

Last, but not least:
+ Happy Birthday to Todd (Dec. 23rd) & Michelle (today)!
+ Congrats to my best friend Kerri who got engaged to Joel right before Christmas!
+ Congratulations to Brandy & Dustin who also got engaged over the holiday!

favorite made-up drink of the week: blueberry mocha.

i’ve got a complete list in my head though. does that count?

loving wolf parade.

american apparel is opening a store in memphis across from the arcade!

selling boots has started to bore me,
after the dozen pairs i have are gone it’s back to selling vintage clothes.

upgraded to a powerbook from my slotmachine-won-ibook thanks to my baby.
i’m constantly amazed at the difference.

arsaga’s customers: please stop asking if my tattoo is a rub on “tat” for the holliday. thanks.

Pssst pssst

I know it’s been like a year since I’ve updated this thing. School has just been rediculous, but the semester is FINALLY almost over. Plus, Todd has helped me set up this pretty lil website and that’s taken a while for me to get around to setting it all up. This is going to be my main blog, so if you’re wondering which of my many places to check from now on, this would be the one.

Now to a few pictures..

Jessica and I went to Memphis for a couple days around Thanksgiving.

First night..
At the Deli

The next day was seriously exhausting. We spent the afternoon hours hopping around to as many thrift stores as possible with a pit stop at The Cupboard.

My little castle in the ghetto over near Graceland.

Yeah.. I really doubt this claim to fame..

After a lovely dinner with my dad we wound up at the insanely packed Glass show.

Robin + Me + Sparks

The next day was Thanksgiving and we helped my stepdad prepare his famous orange rolls. Since my mom & him just moved into their new house a week before, we spend dinner at a family friends house.

After dinner we met up with Kerri, Brandy, & Joel and I saw Walk The Line for the second time.
Although I am only a little lavendar blur in the background for like 2 seconds, it was really cool to see all these scenes that I was there for.

I have so many more pictures to post and already a couple more trips to go on before this month is up. Hopefully with school being out soon I will actually be able to stay on top of things. Till then…
