Mr Cosby

When I left my sister was 11. I come home 4 months later and she has a Justin Bieber collage on her wall... I'm still trying to process it all.

But that's not what this post is about. Let's talk about Cosby, the cutest of all the cutest dogs. He's going to live until I'm 40 because I have a talent for guessing these sorts of things.

Finally Christmas!

(Alternate title: Where Are You Christmas?)
(Alternate title 2: I'll Be Home for Christmas.)
(Alternate title 3: Please Have Snow... and Mistletoe?) 

Up until a few days ago I was not convinced that it was actually December.  The Christmas decorations in the city are a sight, but it still didn't feel like Christmas.  It's probably because my days are full of Hanukkah and empty of snow.  (Seriously. Where's the snow?) Not to mention no one on my street has Christmas lights, which means no Christmas tree either.  So I did what I do best!  I scoured the internet to find some Christmas, and on Sunday night I ventured into Harlem!

part 2 of the children's choir...

I wanted some good ol' fashioned New York Christmas spirit, and The Riverside Church did not disappoint!  You can find anything and anyone here.  It's what I love most about NYC. 

That being said... no one does Christmas like home! Three hip hip hurray's for Utah! And mountains! And I'll be there... tonight! 

p.s. This is a cute song.

random bolding and the Brooklyn Flea

Collection is really just a fancy word for selective hoardingI like my food bland and I don't currently have a kitchen to clutter, but when I see a really great set of salt & pepper shakers I need it for my collection (the one that is currently inside a box inside a bigger box inside my parent's garage).  Someday they will have a place in my eclectic kitchen. Dinner guests will be heard saying Oh my, what an amazing and not-at-all-crazy collection you have. If only I had thought to start such a collection years ago... That's when I'll know I've made it.

Okay, but seriously you guys - seriously. LOOK AT WHAT I FOUND.

Oh, by gosh, by golly! Have you ever in your life seen 3 such perfectly perfect salt & pepper sets?... You're lying if you say yes. You guys, it's a miniature electric mixer that dispenses salt and pepper! You guys! The toast pops out! I'm so freaking excited. They're straight from 1960, but more recently straight from the Brooklyn Flea market...

They just don't make buildings like this anymore!  Damn them... today's building makers (you know who you are).

Those 3 gems weren't the only good purchase I made that day.  All the way from 1992, I present to you...

Oh "Zack", nothing compares to the coiffe of your hair. Nothing.

I will never.

1. I will never run a marathon.

It's never going to happen, people. I've come to terms with it.

2. I will never steal your iPhone... or your wallet... I won't steal anything from you that costs more than $2.

What kind a person sees another person's iPhone and says "Oh goody! I'll take that!" - a heartless person, that's who.

3. I will never care about BYU Football.


4. I will never allow the head of a dead animal to be mounted on my wall.

Never ever.

5. I will never own a cat.

Unless it's Taylor Swifts cat's.

6. I will never kidnap Taylor Swift's cat.

But I'm not making any promises.

7. I will never commit to blonde.

I like it, but... I get bored. Plus, red hair is AWESOME.

8. I will never be that person who shaves her legs every day.

What kind of life is that?

9. I will never spell my child's name any way other than the most common way.

It's that simple. Just like spelling should be.

10. I will never say never, nevah, nevah...

Thanks, JB.
