Who has an extra 90 min and a drill? I am coming to your house.

You better work

Here is a photo of Nikki working her best pose.

I think there may be a pose-off this weekend. Who will be the better poser, Nikki or Alison?

Christmas in July and Hipster Bingo

Last Friday we were on a mission for some Christmas Ale.  I think seven months was a sufficient amount of time to recover from the last time I drank the stuff and blacked out.  I was willing to try and get back on the horse.  We decided it would be a good idea to get some food in our bellies first, so we headed to the Flying Fig for some happy hour specials of burgers, chicken dumplings, and tempura battered green beans.  Great Lakes was already packed but we were NOT attempting Christmas Ale on empty stomachs.  By the time we came out of the Fig, the Christmas Ale was gone.  This was probably a blessing in disguise.
So we decided to play Hipster Bingo.  Ohio City is the perfect neighborhood for hipster spotting.  I bought bingo stampers and prizes.  Aimee won herself a fabulous new car.

Note: We were not allowed to use ourselves as any of the squares.  I know I am the asshole with the camera and the Parliament's.  

Poppa been smooth since days of Underroos

Yesterday after taking care of some business in Tremont (I needed to take part in a drive by DVDing-yeah I am total gangsta), I decided to treat myself. I stopped in to Lilly Handmade Chocolates.
And because I was feeling so tough I got the Mike. I think Tupac would have ordered the same thing to celebrate his last drive-by.

M i k e .neuskes bacon.ohio maple syrup.milk chocolate.

And Biggie Smalls might have ordered this had he walked in to this little pink chocolate shop in Tremont, so I did too.

I wanted her purse but I ended up with her haircut!

more bacon

I think a trip to Lucky's may be in order. I can't stop thinking about BACON!

Chocolate covered bacon and ice cream!

Bacon cake

There is chocolate covered bacon in the middle?! Are you kidding me?

Yes, Virginia there is a Santa Claus.


j.crew has them in flats too

One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish...


hot pink love

So this hot pink mixer is actually called CRANBERRY. An it appears they no longer make it in this color but I want to find it. I have to find it. I will take a used one!

black bathroom

I never would have thought this would look good but this photo makes me rethink black in a bathroom.

I thought I had a lot of shoes

I thought I had too many shoes but my bedroom doesn't look like this. Mainly because the smell I think. (and because I hate large stuffed animals but that's another post)

Too many shoes

Hi. My name is Suzanne and I have too many shoes.
(And a lot of them I don't even like anymore.)

I admit this begrudgingly. I might be an addict. It didn't take an intervention, just a lack of space to put new shoes.

Paper Trails of Rocky River

I love paper and pens and little notebooks. Pens could provide me hours of entertainment. Cool wrapping paper makes me swoon. Besides almost all of the furniture being painted a hot pink and the owner wearing the cutest pair of pink mules I have ever seen, this place was full of the things I love. The invitations section made me want to get married, only so I could pick and send out pretty invitations. The wedding dress store a few doors down though killed this dream.
Because I didn't need any invitations or stationary at this time, I settled for a Moleskin book and a fun new pen.



Randy Pausch has passed away from pancreatic cancer. His last lecture was an internet hit and it even got him on Oprah.

He had such a brilliant outlook on life.


I heart these

Do want to touch me there?

Do you wanna touch me there, where
There, yeah

Joan Jett might frighten me but she captures my feelings so well.

I hate myself for loving you.

I could seriously max out my credit card at Boden

I added up everyting I want and it was $1200. Boo!


who am I?

I wore a dress to work today and not because I had to. I could have worn jeans if I wanted-it's not the heat. Could it be a fever? My co-workers keep asking if it's a new man or a date. Nope, niether of those, and thanks for rubbing it in.
Whatever the cause, I am in a mood to wear dresses these days and here are some that I thought were cute.

I wish my hair looked like this

so stupid...

I want it...

what I feel like today....


Those Cold War Kids were right "Hang Me Up to Dry" you've rung me out too, too, too many times.

I keep seeing this poster everywhere today. I guess someone is trying to tell me something.
