Pardonnez-moi, s’il vous plait…

Apparently, I’m the type of girl who will call our her friend for blogging once a month and then go all MIA myself! NICE WORK, VIBE.

I WANT to blog. I THINK about blogging. I even take PICTURES FOR the blog. Yet, no blog.

{{{le sigh}}}

It’s partly because I’m still adjusting to the new schedule. Can I just say that having a bedtime SUCKS?!?!?! LOL! So do alarm clocks. However, being exposed to regular amounts of sunlight is quite refreshing!

My absence is also due to the fact that I’ve been kinda UP to stuff. You know, like…

Going to Paris


I swear I did not scan a postcard..


I {{heart}} Paris.


Incidentally, Parisian women never tinkle on the seat.
Do they not squat? How do they do it?


The catacombs are creeeeepy.
Also? There’s a place called Creposuk that actually has a disco ball in the bathroom. They call it the “Disco Toilette”. There are lights and everything. It’s run by these guys.


I want to kidnap my boy and move to Paris.

Condo Shopping.


Powder blue EVERYTHING with dark green linoleum.
Did you KNOW they make powder blue toilets?


Not sure what was going on here.
BUT THEY SURE DO LOVE THAT LINOLEUM!


Spiral staircases and hardwood floors are niiiice.
Probably not nice enough to make me wanna buy ALL NEW APPLIANCES though.


This skylight COMES with all new appliances.
and cathedral ceilings!!!

Going to concerts!


Snow Patrol at the 9:30 Club


They played with Augustana
and they were pretty damned good!

Baking!(while watching the mind-numbingly boring “Dancing with the Stars!”)


Peach Upside-Down Cake!
While it certainly LOOKS better, it does NOT taste better than the one my boyfriend made for me.

I haven’t been knitting! AND I haven’t even been to a yarn shop since I stopped working at Knit Happens!!! I don’t know what’s wrong with me! I have been sewing a little, but the results are so unsightly, there are no pictures.

I’ve been missing you guys though… :(

Hopefully, I will get back into a knitting/blogging groove, but should I disappear from this place again, you can always find me here. I know it’s not the same, but the updates are nearly daily (they kinda pay me, so I hafta keep up on it ;) ) AND it’ll help you stay in touch with the latest trash-talkin’ gossip! YAY!

Happy Hump Day!!!

    Paris looks lovely… I’m glad you guys had a good time. And what’s with the condo shopping? Obviously we need to get together, soon!

  4. Amy Says:

    OOOOOOOHHHH… Paris!!! Nice! Glad to see you’re having a good time! And condo shopping… they both look nice. Where are you thinking of buying?

  5. Rossana Says:

    I LOVE skylights! Good luck with the condo-buying!

  6. Ann Says:

    What great pics! Looks like Paris found you well… so did you find a condo that suits you?

  7. Sheri Says:

    Glad you had a nice trip! Yes, the powder blue bathroom. Our house has a powder blue toilet, blue ceramic tiles, blue tub, blue sink… At least the floor is tiny 1″ square ceramic tiles of — you guessed it — different shades of blue! When we first moved there was pink carpet in the bathroom, but I ripped that up pretty quickly. (Our house was built in 1968. Someday I hope to be able to redo the bathroom. Don’t have the funds for it right now.)
