A peak into my personal life...

When I was in high school I LOVED Billy Corgan (of the Smashing Pumpkins)- it was an unnatural love- almost an obsession. Like my friends and I would bake a cake and celebrate his birthday (yes, on March 17- Saint Patrick's Day). We loved his big ole bald basketball head. See here:

Not the best looking man, I know..... but we loved him all the same.

Recently, I have heard through the grapevine (and all those trash magazines that I read) that he is dating none other than the serial dater Jessica Simpson. See here:

Yes we are talking about the girl, who, I quote said:

“Is this chicken, what I have, or is this fish? I know it's tuna, but it says 'Chicken by the Sea.'”

“On my first day of Jr. High I was in Geography class, and the teacher asked us if anybody knew the names of the continents. And I was so excited. I was like, Damnit! It's my first day of 7th grade, I'm in jr high and i know this answer. So i raised my hand I was the first one and I said A-E-I-O-U!”

I'm sure that there are many others, but I can't quite think of them right now.

So, back to the point of all of this- my little heart is broken.... How, seriously, HOW is he dating her? What happened to being attracted to a girl with brains, intelligence? I'm hoping that this is all just a publicity hoax and that it will end soon. That way I can still dream that Mr. Billy Corgan will show up on my front door and whisk me away while singing 1979 to me. :)

It's been such a long time.....

And I truly apologize for that!

Between organizing the family Christmas, family visitors, and work it's been absolutely insane around here.

I've spent way too much time on Etsy browsing all the beautiful things that people have been making.

Here's a few of my newest favorites:

So simple and beautiful over at Tortillagirl. She has so many fantastic things in her shop. It's so hard for me to spend all of my money there!

And my new favorite shop! Dollyknits. How could you not love a bright red knit tie? I think that this will definitely be bought for my husband. He'll be the envy of all of his nerdy friends! :)

Things I am missing right now

Okay, so it's winter. It's December... and moving to Georgia is weird. I mean, there is NO snow. I have yet to see one single caroler on my step.... and I doubt that I will.

So, here are the things I desperately miss about living in the good ole midwest:
1. Snow- even though it gets the bottoms of my pants all wet (and boy do I hate that!)
2. Driving on ice- dangerous, but fun.
3. Calling in to work because the snow plow pushed snow all around my car and there's no way that I'm going to be out in that cold shoveling snow. No way!
4. Angry shoppers that are freezing.
5. My family- we're all alone here in GA. Boooo!
6. Going to chop down your own Christmas tree. They just don't do that here. Weird, huh?

I think that's all I have for now.
