Here’s a graph to explain why I’ve been completely unproductive today. At least I was productive enough to make a graph.

I’ve been to the North Carolina Museum of Art one billion(ish) times, but recently they added a completely new building, so my Mom and I went to investigate. I think the new building looks like an ugly storage facility of some sort, but I’m no architect. Maybe it’s so cutting edge that I just don’t [...]
I ordered a pair of these over-the-knee socks from Forever21. With a fitted skirt and some cute flats I think they’ll create the perfect sophisticated school girl look. No pigtails necessary. 1 Confetti Ruffle Shirt from J.Crew 2 Over-the-knee Trouser Socks from Forever21 3 Basic Denim Skirt from Forever21 4 Friendly Terrain Belt from Anthropologie [...]
If you want to practice your hair cutting skills without destroying any friendships, just get a dog. They might be a little wiggly at times, but they don’t mind one bit if you mess up.
Here’s a little something from my design school days. I spent hours at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences photographing specimens, and they even let me into the storage room to see the ones that weren’t on display! The music is “Smoothie Song” by Nickel Creek. Sometimes I miss design school, but I don’t [...]

No I’m not pregnant, but it seems like all my friends are either pregnant, trying to get pregnant, or thinking about getting pregnant. Yikes. I went to a baby shower yesterday, and I got the new mom a battery operated snot sucker. I didn’t even know those existed (or that they were necessary). Life seems [...]
I made raspberry ice cream. I used a basic vanilla recipe and threw in a few cups of blended raspberries. It tastes delicious, but unfortunately after sitting in the freezer overnight it’s rock hard! I think the juice from the raspberries changed the ice cream’s texture. Maybe next time I won’t blend the raspberries so [...]
Maybe I’m crazy, but wouldn’t it be fun to have a wall covered in old propellers? The wall would be even better if the propellers were attached to little motors so they could spin slowly! (If they were spinning too quickly the propeller wall might be considered a safety hazard.) (These are just a few [...]
Now that I have magic crystals to keep my plants alive, I need some container gardening ideas. Look at these beauties I found on Martha Stewart’s website!
