little notes


dear dishes,
you may be the death of me. seriously, how do you keep reappearing just when i thought i had finished you. please future apartment, bless me with a dishwasher. then my life will be complete.

dear lana del ray,
you may be my new girl crush at the moment. kind of digging on the video games song the most.
on repeat as we speak!

dear jessica simpson,
first off, i'm so happy that you finally gave birth. i was a little concerned for you. i literally thought your stomach would pop open all bella swan style. *twilight reference, anyone? anyone?
and i'm all for unique names. girls having boy names is one of my weaknesses, but maxwell drew is kind of a stretch. sorry, not feeling it.

dear taco tuesday,
i hate you but i love you. if only you didn't ruin my calorie count. but taste beats weight, sorry thighs.

dear nike training app,
speaking of weight, i'm a little bit more than excited to try you out and get myself to that lean and toned summer body i've always dreamed about. i'll keep you guys posted if this works. fingers crossed.

dear mister,
i love when you brush back my hair and give me a little kiss in the morning before you head off to school early in the morning. you are just so precious. loves!

  6. HOW DO YOU LIVE WITHOUT A DISHWASHER?!?!? !
    You're pretty much my hero.

  7. Tacos and nachos are a weakness of mine, for sure!

    I think boys names for girls can be done right, but the fact that they chose TWO boy names is definitely pushing it.

  8. Oh, please let u sknow how the Nike Training app is!

    ReplyDelete
  9. hahaha Taco Tuesday. Why does it have to be so delicious!
    Good luck with your work out!!! It's not easy, but we WILL get those toned summer bodies!! Keep it up!

  12. ok, i loved everything about this post! i too, do not own a dishwasher. and i had to tackle them last night after days of just looking at them as if they were washing themselves. i often think the same. if i could recommend "born to die" by ldr, one of my favorites. and i always love a good twilight reference! ;) xox

  14. Make peace with the dishes, they never go away!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Started listening to Lana August last year when I discovered the brilliant Video Games. Love that, Born to Die, Diet Mountain Dew, Summertime Sadness, Blue Jeans, Kinda Outta Luck...a LOT of her songs, apparently.

    Heh heh.

    So Jess "finally" had the baby, congrats to her! I reckon it was the fault of the mags for making it seem like she had been pregnant for 1,596,390 years because the news came out quite early on that she was pregnant (when she was two months along or smthg...?) so that, coupled with the fact she was eeeever so sliiiightly bigger (mostly because she's not that tall) made the magazines hyperbolise and go on and on about when she'll have that baby already, even though they were inexplicably saying all that lame stuff BEFORE her due date[!] and now it turns out she was only overdue 9 days or smthg.

    Okay, off my soapbox now, hee! :-)

  16. Love the Twilight reference...I seriously thought that J. Simpson's baby was going to graduate from high school while still in the womb.

    I get kisses in the morning before mine goes off to work...I love 'em :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. haha yes and also to j simp- please get the best trainer money can buy and get back into your "these boots were made for walkin" shape.

    ReplyDelete
  18. haha so happy for Jessica Simpson! I think bella style might have been easier than that girl's pregnancy! She could've fit 2 octo-mom's in there... :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. I love your little notes because I always find out something new - Maxwell Drew?!?! Serious stretch for sure!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I don't think I'm loving maxwell either.., what would they nickname her? Summer toned.. That is a goal I've strived for every summer and it never seems to happen! I bet you can do it though!!!! Curious to hear more about the training app!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I love this post! I was SO concerned with J. Simpson not giving birth.. she was so ready to pop weeks ago! glad she finally did! I don't know why but I like the name Maxwell.. it sounds powerful haha.

    I also love Lana Del Rey.. mad girl crush! shes gorge!

  22. I am so glad you left a comment on my blog b/c I just came to yours and i love it!! I can't wait to keep reading more! And P.S. My hubby and I finally got a dishwasher this second apartment around!! I hated those days of never-ending dishes!! haha

    ReplyDelete
  23. I must agree, what the heck was she thinking? Maxwell is just not cute, sorry I'm not sorry. I am also loving Video Gamers, her voice and music are just beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  24. bahahahaha. i just posted a little notes post today too and mentioned jessica simpsons baby too. how funny!!!! have a happy day!

  25. my dishes are totally taking over my kitchen right now as well! :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. god, don't even get me started on dishes. i have the same problem- the moment i finish a gross load there seems to be seven more waiting for their turn. blah. i wish i wasn't too poor for a dishwasher. or a house elf. (harry potter reference anyone?)

    i kind of dig "Maxwell" for a girl, but then again I like anything kind of odd-ball. and lets keep in mind Ashlee named her kid Mowgli, so not that bad. Anywho, love your blog, definitely following!

    ReplyDelete
  27. She named him maxwell drew? Ya I'm not digging it either. Drew Maxwell would have been a teeny tiny better, but still.

  28. i have the nike training club app! i LOVE it. thanks for the well wishes. I hope to heal quickly.. then get summer sleek! :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. I wish I could work out and lose weight right about now.... gained 31 pounds so far this pregnancy!

    Even with a dishwasher, there seem to be dishes in the sink all the time... but maybe you'll be more on top of things than me!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Ohhh. I love the nike training app!

    Another one you should check out is "my fitness pal" - it's a great calorie counter, and really lets you be more aware of the types of things you put into your body... you can even record your workouts and it will readjust your calorie allowance so that you meet your goal weight. (When you workout - you need to eat more!:)

    Anyway - just a thought!

  31. I'm going to give myself credit for introducing you to Lana? Yes?! This must be new music (besides video games) I'm so excited! Taco tuesday... send me pictures please. haha it's pizza tuesday for me today. Even though it totally doesn't rhyme...

    ReplyDelete
  32. first of all - don't you feel like jessica simpson was pregnant forEVER? it felt like years! i'm totally not into the name either!

    ReplyDelete
  33. YAY! i'm so in love with lana and it makes me happy when other people are too. :) what else is crazy? i celebrate taco tuesdays as well. twinsies? ;)

    ReplyDelete
  34. OMG. Your Jessica Simpson comment made me laugh out loud!

    ReplyDelete
  35. First of all, Lana Del Ray is amazing. And second, totally caught your Twilight reference ;)

    ReplyDelete
  36. if i didnt have a dishwasher, we would be living off paper products! i would die. your a hero for washing dishes. ha. *lazy much, yes. im in love with Lana my favorite is off to the races.

    ReplyDelete
  37. J Simpson was about to POP. Glad someone else thought so. I didn't know that's what she named her daughter??? So confused by that one.

    ReplyDelete
  38. lana del rey is a favorite of mine at the moment as well- the video games music video is hauntingly beautiful. definitely diggin it!

    ReplyDelete
  39. haha taco tuesday would most deff ruin a calorie count, laughed out loud!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Dishes do seem to be never ending. It's really annoying. And Taco Tuesday is totally worth the calories. Plus, it's semi-healthy, right?

    ReplyDelete

  45. Lol I love the twilight reference! And seriously, it was like she was going to be pregnant forever! Also not a huge fan of her name :/

    ReplyDelete
  46. I love Lana del Ray's voice but (even though I'm all about supporting other women) her fake fish lips kinda freak me out.Rx

  47. "Video Games" was in my head all last week. No lie!! It's such a haunting sounding song. And I totally agree about Jessica Simpson. It was time. LOL!

  49. Awwwww, these notes are so lovely. Almost poetic.
    Note to self: I love dishwashers ; )

    ReplyDelete
  50. Yeah, not a fan of the name she picked. Not a fan. And I am off to do the dishes now...boo!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I'm not a fan of Maxwell either...I LOVE boy names for girls too. I'm guessing if they call her "Max" that could be really cute but "Maxwell" is too far.

    ReplyDelete
  52. So funny because every time i see your profile photo i think: "Man, she looks so much like Lana del Rey!" x

    ReplyDelete
  53. oh my gosh, the jessica simpson reference - it's like you were so reading my thoughts!

    ReplyDelete
  54. You are too stinkin' cute -- these little notes are super adorbs. My fave Lana Del Rey is "Diet Mountain Dew." SO my jam right now ;] Haha.

    ReplyDelete
  55. So glad you commented on Ben & Jerry's and so glad I came across your blog! Love it! P.S. I'm in the same apartment situation and really need a dishwasher.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Lol! this post was so funny i totally agree with your note to Jessica Simpson :D

  57. First off, thank you SO MUCH for stopping by and commenting on my blog. I never in a million years would have thought you would, so THANK YOU! I love you for it and I love that even though you're quite a popular blogger, you still take the time to comment your followers! You're AMAZING!

    Secondly, this post is so funny to me because I was writing little notes in my head all day yesterday about random things and I had been thinking about doing a post like this. Lana del Rey is amazing, and Jessica Simpson - well I don't even know. Lol.

    ♥ Duckie.
