today is emilia's birthday...in 1980 (a leap year) we were born 346 days apart...years later we met in college and the rest is, as they say, history. today we are living 3,185 miles apart (sadly) and since i can't be in california on her birthday i will send hugs and love over the miles...the package above is on it's way my love, i hope you have a wonderful birthday and that you had a fun extravaganza weekend with sweets & treats in the park. MWAH!

a friend of mine once told me about his sister, who had a professor that asked everyone in the class to announce their presence in and out of daydreams, distractions, etc. by saying outloud - in the middle of whatever was going on in class - "i'm back!" when their attention focused back on the task at hand...well,
no promises how long it will last:) but i'm here today. lots going on - i'm working lots of extra hours at the library (like double the usual on-top of my full-time job) and i got a new student at school that i'm working with one on one...so that has taken a minute to get used to, i am a nearly licensed foster parent with hopes (fingers crossed, please!) of adopting my little joe in the new year (sooner, if that's possible!), and what else...who knows! i recently went to NYC to visit my dear sera and our friend ashley was in town (opening up the hottest new thrift on the LES!) and ashley is soon to be married (enter wedding present ideas here:_________)
SO, besides all of that and the fact that we ate lobsters instead of turkey on thanksgiving (support local) i am boring and loving a few things (shared below) and hopefully by the holidays, i will have made a few things for my lovelies and the niece & nephew kidlets :) enjoy links and happy hump day!
i love you, but you crack me up!

“I look at these people and can't quite believe that they exist. Are they professional actors? I wonder. Or are they simply laymen who want a lot of attention? To put them in perspective, I think of being on an airplane. The flight attendant comes down the aisle with her food cart and, eventually, parks it beside my seat. "Can I interest you in the chicken?" she asks. "Or would you prefer the platter of shit with bits of broken glass in it? To be undecided in this election is to pause for a moment and then ask how the chicken is cooked."
- Author David Sedaris, on undecided voters

there is something about a sunday that gives me anxiety - time wasted over the weekend that slipped by too quickly, the impending work week, etc. i also think - what will i blog about this week? am i feeling inspired? i actually know that as the days get darker and colder i will feel inspired to basically get under a fleece blanket, so if my posts get thin don't worry, i promise to not completely hibernate. here's just a few links of love, to make up for being absent on friday! i hope everyone had a wonderful weekend that was relaxing and productive :)

p.s. has anyone else encountered people lately (usually older folks OR closet republicans) who would rather not vote than vote for either candidate? i find this phenomenom utterly amazing, especially when i consider (with fear and an escape plan in my heart) a world under mccain-palin administration! this video is for them...don't do it, just say no to mccain-palin.
this site let's you find out what % your beliefs compare to the candidates, i am 78% barack according to them, but so is everyone else i know that has taken this quiz!
be inspired. inspire others - HOPE.ACT.CHANGE.

apple cider martinis in the orchard by thingsihearttoday
i heart fall! what i really heart is the surprise week in october when the weather is deceptively warm right before it really gets cold and the leaves explode with color. recently emilia talked about having a barn party and ever since i have been looking for an excuse to have a mulling party - cider and conversation, heels and scarves - just friends sitting around a wood stove with a cider-filled, cinnamon scattered cauldron on top...it's the stuff of magic. now that i've got the outfit, all that's left to do is plan.
outfit details here.

"whoever wins this election, bush's impact has changed the world. this man has left us with three wars — in iraq, afghanistan and the war on terror — and the legacy of the pre-emptive strike. these are legacies that will haunt his successor for years. it's good for people, before the election, to think about who they elected eight years ago and about where we are as a country right now."- oliver stone, on his new movie W., opening october 17th...hopefully nationwide.

ok, so i know that this is WAY outta anyone's budget...but - each piece is so lovely that i couldn't leave them out and be price-ist...dream with me would you? imagine that you have a job where sparkles are appropriate during the daytime hours (a job that wouldn't get you arrested, let's just say) and that job may also include fancy $12 drinks, expensive baubles & prada heels after hours...are you with me? keep your eyes closed because this happy place was inspired by my doe colored birthday and i took an outfit cue from my favorite gal, check out her evergreen set.
what's your color? what's your dream outfit? prices & details on mine here.
