happy halloween eve!
tomorrow bennett and i have a full day planned.
we are going to a pumpkin fest in downtown franklin
(which i am SO excited about)
and then a bunch of our friends are having halloween parties
the only problem?
i STILL have no idea what to do for my costume!
and it's driving me crazy
i guess i'll figure something out...

i wish i could hibernate through the winter
and snuggle with him
until it's warm out again.

yuck. school.

i am super overwhelmed right now.
i feel like my assignments are out to get me all of a sudden.

i just want it to be christmas
so i can lay under my decorated tree
covered in christmas lights
and listen to the charlie brown christmas album.
life doesn't get much better than that.

i am obsessed with pregnant women
and i have been for as long as i can remember
(i used to stuff my leotard with towels and do "pregnant lady exercises" when i was about 5)
there is just nothing more beautiful than a pregnant woman with an enormous belly.

i cannot wait to be pregnant.

which brings me to this:
last year for halloween, i was "pregnant".......
and it was a hit
people really thought i was expecting!
so now i need your help,
should i be "pregnant" again this year?
i just had so much fun pretending
and i kind of want to do it again...
but would that be lame to do the same thing 2 years in a row?

back from the windy city

i'm back from the windy (and freezing) city!
i had such a wonderful time with my mom.
we did so much shopping along the magnificent mile
and i got a wonderful new pair of boots
and we ate at giordano's
(although i must confess, i am not a fan of chicago style pizza)
and we of course went and took pictures of the bean!

i like chicago
but i love nashville

Wednesday, October 14, 2009


finally, fall break!
i am going to chicago with my mom tomorrow
to shop
and go to art museums
and shop
and i am so excited!

i will be back saturday with plenty of polaroids and stories.

oh and p.s.
i would greatly appreciate suggestions
on where to eat and shop : )

have a happy weekend!

where i would have done anything
to stay in bed
and not get up

today is a special day...

happy birthday, lover!

today is bennett's 21st birthday!
i'm taking him to dinner tonight
(where? it's a secret...)
and then we're going to get dessert
and do all sorts of fun things

and this weekend we're going to see
oh i can't wait.

and instead of making him a card
i made him a birthday booklet
(see photo above)
filled with letters
and pictures
and secrets
and memories

happy birthday to my favorite person in the universe!
i kind of love you a lot.

and lovely
and inspiring

you must go see it.

cookies for bennett

right now i am making cookies
(pillsbury ready to bake sugar cookies with pumpkins on them)
as a peace offering
and an apology
because sometimes i can be so ridiculous
and impatient
and stubborn

but despite all my nonsense
and unnecessary freak outs
he loves me
and i love him
more than ever
and that's all that matters
