I was trying to explain to Matt what I wanted to do with the constellation wallpaper I'll eventually buy for our bedroom. This image explained it better than I ever could.
When you put three of them together all tight like that it looks like one big one which will be helpful since I dunno how wide the wallpaper is.

i got happy with some tape

This stuff is expensive and waaayyyy smaller than I thought it was gonna be. Never again.
I taped up my cabinet to add something to it. Kinda fun.
I'll figure out things to do with the tape. I've seen cool ideas floating around the interwebs.

thanks for taking me back to the past internet

One of the best things about the internet and all internet related technologies is the ability it has to take you into the past. The past few weeks off while I should have been thinking about my future and what I'd like to do with my life well I avoided all news stories, any relevant things happening in the world and in my life and spent my days watching old sitcoms and tv shows. I watched the entire Season 5 of Golden Girls which still makes me laugh, Ally McBeal since God bless Netflix they have the whole show on it, and I went even further back in time to The Cosby Show and Facts of Life. I had no idea that The Cosby Show was such an important part of my husband's life. He knew episodes so well and I realized aside from the scene where Cliff teaches Theo about money through monopoly I don't know jack about The Cosby Show. And being a fan of pop culture that I am I attempted to remedy that. That show is pretty hilarious, Dr. Cosby is a genius.
Of course pinterest helped since people pin things from their childhood that they find on the internet and on Sunday I spent awhile in a blog that shows pics of retro food, shows, toys, and games. That's maybe the best thing about the internet. I hope we have the internet backed up so we can recreate the important things of society in case of an apocalypse (which I must've missed since I'm avoiding all current events). Things like Poochie.
Teen spirit ads. Do they still sell Teen Spirit? What a genius product, they all have to buy deodorant anyway why not make something and say it's just for them and they HAVE to buy it.
Lisa Frank was such a thing because it was stationery. Something I'm still obsessed with. Though not so bright...
Did you guys ever eat these? I seem to recall them being very good, though I was a teen when I ate them and we all know teenagers are stupid and don't know crap.
What is it about the things we consumed and wanted as kids that make it that much more endearing? Nowadays I lust for things like a striped gazebo and a purse that has a flamingo on it. BORING! Nothing like a dog with pink ears that stamps its image from his butt on notes you can send your friends. It's also amazing how your memory works. I haven't thought about dolly pops in decades but just the sight of them and I remember their little snap on clothes and hair you could brush.
Adulthood is not that full of wonderment but then you get to relive it when kids come around and they think Sesame Street is as incredible as you once did.

she's one!

One year ago as I lay in bed enjoying a day off, there was a knock on my bedroom door.

"EvY, can you drive me to the hospital?"
Immediately I shot up in bed, "Are you in labor honey?"
"I think so."
Hours later and into the following morning we met the little girl we'd been waiting for.
A lot has happened in a year.
Happy Birthday Lyla Sky. I love you from here to heaven and back.

haunted cupboard

Stupid cat.

step in time

The tea towel that hangs proudly on my fridge. 
In the room I hang out in by choice okay, the women's movement is about choice and I choose my choice!

stripey board

I switched up the wallpaper on the magnetic board.
It kinda reminds me of some abstract art when it's empty.
But here's what it looks like loaded with stuff.
Matt graciously donated the "Wonder Woman for President" from his vintage DC comics postcard collection.

just to prove me wrong

He brought me flowers. Freesias.

I am reading this:

It gets worse. This is the second volume of a 4 volume set and I asked Matt to get them for me and he did very happily. They were written by Joss Whedon who I love and these books are realllly good. Better than Betty White's autobiography which I also read. More on that later.
