Leftover Night

Just as tasty as a the day after Thanksgiving, please help yourself
to as many of these previously unseen photos as your tummies and minds
can handle.

Alright, we'll keep the text light to follow up that heavy main course selection.
Mint, anyone?

'Carrie'd Away

Several experiences have informed me that if ever I am sitting in the immediate vicinity of three other women we are immediately and with all due haste supposed to figure out which Sex and the City character we most accurately conform to. Now I can't be certain if I even have a high-fashion oriented reader demographic that I've been horribly ignoring but if in fact for some reason that's the case welcome to Fashion Week. (And by Fashion Week I mean a one day event where Chelsea's going to style us up some outfits from the yard sale merchandise and where possibly I wear make-up) Please enjoy...

The New Movie

The First Movie

The Classic

Special thanks to today's photographer Kristin. We sure hope this made your day. It certainly made ours. Also, the girls in my department would like me to mention that I made them do cruel and unusual amounts of manual labor before taking these photos today. If any one out there would like to contribute to my Buy-Burke-Williams-Gift-Cards-For-My-Department program please send check or money order to

Nutritional Supplement

We've been prepping this yard sale for a while now and sometimes
we just get a little punchy. Welcome to one of those times....

Milk: it does a body good


Miss Practical Apple

Sahar and Ramsay are like two peas in a pod... I guess

Which must be why they both insisted on wearing these next two reasonably unidentifiable costumes. What are they? We don't know, but call us if you do.

So remember kids, this blog is part of a balanced breakfast.

See you at the sale this Saturday May 22, 8am-2pm!

xo for serious,

P.S. A very special surprise...

Look! Alpacas! A very special thanks to Ed and Dancing Rocks Ranch.
Ed invites you all to come and visit.

Space Movies

So we're a little split in our department.
Here's the vote count:
Loves 'Space Movies': 1
Hates 'Space Movies': 1
Wish we would stop talking about our views on 'space movies: 2

Luckily (or perhaps unluckily) for you at home I am the one vote for
loves (obviously) and in case you were wondering 'space movies' is
actually a more generic term courtesy of my friend Chelsea and it includes
any and everything sci-fi, fantasy and most everything I've ever referenced on this
blog- ever.
So here's some of my favorites:

Say, your coat's kind of a brownish color....

There is no spoon

So yes...

Luckily for us, Ramsay is a little more jovial than Starbuck

P.S. There are four lights

Pirates and Wenches

Sorry readers, Pirates and Wenches is not the name of our frat party tonight. It's the name of our frat party tomorrow night. Holla.
Here are some ideas so you have a day to get your costumed act together.

Special thanks to Alex for her last-minute volunteering and generally saving today's blog. Now then, as apparently I'm throwing a frat party in 27 hours I'm off to the 7-11.

I am a FBI Agent

This is the coolest thing that has ever happened-ever!
I mentioned Point Break LIVE and then- from what I can
deduce anyway- the cast of Point Break LIVE commented
on our facebook page. Aaah! I feel cool.
So much so that I am now prepared to dedicate an entire
posting to this massive cinematic and now theatrical achievement.

I would also like to mention that if you are the costume designer of any of the projects I have or will reference, if you were the costume supervisor, the ager, the dyer, the specialty craftsperson, the set costumer, the tailor, the seamstress, the cutter, the fitter, the key costumer, the shopper, the costumer, the fabric buyer, the assistant costume designer, the uniform guy, the still photographer who took the photos or yes, even the p.a. (represent yo) then your work is only in this blog because I think it is amazing and totally rad and one day I hope to be as cool as you.

In the meantime though... Vaya con Dios
