What I'm Reading: Bossypants

So just in case anyone didn't know
is my spirit animal 

I've been waiting for this book to come out
for months
Now that I've got my hands on it
I've been trying not too read it all in one sitting
savoring it like a fine wine

This quote kept drifting back to me 
while I lay in bed last night

This is what I tell young women who ask me for career advice.
 People are going to try to trick you. To make you feel that
 you are in competition with one another. “You’re up for a 
promotion. If they go with a woman, it’ll be between you
 and Barbara.
” Don’t be fooled. You’re not in competition
 with other women. You’re in competition with everyone.
 I encourage them to always wear a bra. Even if you don’t 
think you need it, just… you know what? You’re never going to regret
 it. My dream for the future is that sketch comedy shows become
 a gender-blind meritocracy of whoever is really the funniest.
 You might see four women and two men. You might see five men
 and a YouTube video of a kitten sneezing. Once we know
 we’re really open to all the options, we can proceed with
 Whatever’s the Funniest… which will probably involve farts.
- Tina Fey

Tree House envy

*I want one*
my backyard wants one too
I think it would be perfect overlooking our little lake

~I would have to double up on the mosquito netting though~

How to *not* pick up the Bartender

1. Insert "trust fund" into any part of a conversation 
2. Take off your shirt to show me your "guns"
3. Tell me your going to give me a big tip and *wink*
4. *wink* at any point and time
5. Insist that I pay attention only to you

You know your boyfriend loves you when....

you know your boyfriend loves you
when he could be doing anything he chooses
but he watches Grey's Anatomy marathons with you
(I'm addicted)
*thanks netflix*
he even puts up with my slobbery crying face
when the episodes get serious

très fatigué

“I restore myself when I’m alone.”
- Marilyn Monroe


The past few weeks have been hectic at best
with guests in town 
*two new jobs*
and one old job that clung to me like a bad smell

I am looking forward to my day off this week
it might contain nothing more
than coffee and a good book

Beach Visit

Summer is where the girls go barefoot
 and their hearts 
are just as free as their toes.

poem love: e.e. cummings

[i carry your heart with me(i carry it in]

i carry your heart with me
(i carry it in my heart)
i am never without it
(anywherei go you go,my dear;and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
  i fear
no fate
(for you are my fate,my sweet)
i want
no world
(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

Lovely Weather

Sunshine is delicious, 
Rain is refreshing, 
Wind braces us up, 
Snow is exhilarating;
 There is really no such thing as bad weather, 
only different kinds of good weather. 

Happy Monday!
