My latest food addiction

Every time Vince and I go to Asheville we hit a co-op to stock-up on locally made soap, goji berries, and other odd assortments of hippy food. Last time we were there Vince got these funny little square things... they had cacao and goji and were brown, kinda sticky, and really filling. He got a pound of them and we stashed them in our hotel room. Then on the Friday before our wedding we picked up Timmay at the airport, fresh off of the redeye from San Fran, and he pulls out a pound of the same Continue Reading

The Awesome Weekend That Wasn’t

In case you missed me being a whiny little betch on Twitter this holiday week(end), let me get you caught up. My 4th of July suuuuuuuuuuuuuucked. What we were supposed to do: Get Friday off. Go to Jon and Carrie's late Wednesday after Red Hot Boom. Party all day Thursday with friends from near and far. Party all day Friday for one of our best friend's birthday. See Ghost Owl at a bar called The Funky Biscuit in Boca. Hang out by the pool all day Saturday with friends and pink champagne Continue Reading

Ali’s First One Piece Bathing Suit

Since the wedding I've been having a few fat days. *edit: By 'fat days' I mean I know I'm not obese or even overweight, I am just really feelin' the loss of toned muscles and addition of 'pudge.' I know it's nothing I won't be able to work off. I think it's a combination of feeling, for the first time in almost two years, that I don't need to starve myself to look less-than-fat wearing a big white dress in photos that will haunt me for the rest of my life, combined with a giant sense of relief Continue Reading

This is what happens when I mow the lawn.

Vince was going through the videos on his phone and found one from last summer of me mowing the lawn. Why was he videoing me mowing the lawn? Because he couldn't believe I was doing it, for one. And two; because the lawnmower is old and the wheels tend to lock-up, meaning I mow the lawn in giant circles which he finds incredibly funny. It was a pretty boring video,... until I ran into a tree. http://youtu.be/OJIn5T8copI I have no idea why I made the sound of an injured bird when I hit the Continue Reading

It is done.

Yup. I did it. Six inches gone. I won't lie,... I definitely got a little squirrely when my stylist was cutting the back. But it's done now! Whatcha think? It's definitely similar to what I had when I was 26 and my stylist blew it out way bigger than I'll probably wear it, but so far I feel SO much better! No more big lops of hair hanging down my shoulders. No more dull ends! No more thick heavy hair! And it's way blonder than I thought it would be, but I'm okay with that! It's summer! I can Continue Reading

Hair Help!

Help. I don't know what to do with my hair. Here's the sitch: I've spent the better part of the last year and a half growing out my hair for the wedding. The wedding is over. I now have all this effing hair to deal with. Reasons I want to get rid of it: It's effing huge. Seriously I have the most/biggest hair of anyone I know. It takes forever to tame. I mean, ffs look at it all. Guaranteed 30 minutes of styling every morning before work. It's hot and when I work out it gets sweaty Continue Reading
