I didn't get dressed today. It was raining. I didn't feel well. Mom brought lunch and lattes and we cleaned out my office. Such a nice 24 hours. It's good to listen to your body (and your mom) and just chill now and again.
I don't know who these dudes are but apparently they have a few videos. I found this from another gymnastics nerd who posted in the "Post something you like" thread on my beloved gymnastics gossip message board. Yeah, still reading? Thanks. Watch this.
And, PS, all of the videos I post here get annoyingly cut off on the right 10%. So just click on the actual youtube logo and watch it from there. kthxbye.
Last night I completed the series (up to date) of Friday Night Lights. Less than two weeks. Could. Not. Stop. I am thrilled to see that my new favorite show is on the cover of this month's Texas Monthly as perhaps the best tv show to portray Texas. Ever. I wholly agree even though I haven't even watched the others.
Tami Taylor is the matriarch of the show and basically one of the best female characters I've ever watched on tv. She is strong. Brave. Balanced. And has a killer sense of style, pairing dresses with cowboy boots, that I plan to whole-heartedly adopt this fall. This blog post pontificates on this awesome woman and her awesome boots.
While I still adore my Anthro boots from two years ago, I am ready to shell out some bucks for some new boots to scoot in. How gorgeous are these Justin for Fossil boots? DYING FOR THESE. WANTTTT.
I also LOVE these bow boots from Anthro, but I think I need something with a little more cowboy in them. A little more Tim Riggins. Perhaps Deena and I can channel our inner Tami Taylor when she visits in October? Look out, I might just have to get some snap-button-downs to boot. But never a pocketless jeans. THE HORROR.
She found a new home. Love it. This has inspired me to have a new feature on AAAD. Send me your pet photos of them sitting/sleeping in ridic places for a chance to have a special feature on my blog. Does your pet's name have a Google result? IT WILL NOW.
Thanks for the kickoff, Bonnie Ballard! Pia The Pig
I realize I might possibly lose readers with that statement, but I am standing by my claim that Greyson Chance is truly the awesomest of the tweens with awesome hair who sing power ballads. Check out Greyson's latest performance on Ellen. You can't help but smile.
My BFF Katie and I have watched You've Got Mail about a million times. Every fall we think about sending each other this lovely idea that's straight outta Tom Hanks's mouth as Joe Fox. "Just call me Joe."
Today I opened a surprise package in the mail from Katie of about 50 freshly-sharpened pencils. Totally on point.
