It's Official!


This is my new home:

It's 3 bedroom, 2 bath in Arlington, TX.
This is my first home and I am so excited about it. I have tons of projects and ideas already and can't wait to get started. Good thing I'm so obsessed with HGTV! :)
Stay tuned to see what happens...

You're in a chair... In the SKY!!

This is a 24 hour observation of world air travel condensed into about 2 mintures.

Each yellow dot in this video is a plane in the sky. Watch as the yellow dots become more concentrated as daylight hits each region. Man- talk about rush hour traffic!!

Happy Fat Day.

I've always wondered about the significance of "Fat Tuesday" in connection with "Ash Wednesday," so yesterday, I looked it up. For all of you curious minds:

Mardi Gras literally means "Fat Tuesday" in French. The name comes from the tradition of slaughtering and feasting upon a fattened calf on the last day of Carnival. The day is also known as Shrove Tuesday (from "to shrive," or hear confessions), Pancake Tuesday and fetter Dienstag. The custom of making pancakes comes from the need to use up fat, eggs and dairy before the fasting and abstinence of Lent begins.

And today is Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. For all of you Catholics out there- what are YOU giving up? I'm giving up beer* and also trying to send a letter a day the old fashioned way- snail mail! :) We'll see how I do...

*beer will not be consumed for 40 days with one exception: March 14th at the Lower Greenville St. Patrick's Day Parade. I mean, come on. I have to honor my Irish AND Catholic traditions here!

You may think your life is bad... but wait until you read this forum:

F*** My Life is a place for people to vent about the horrible (but pretty much trivial) things that have happened to them.

For example: "Today, I got a text message. It said, "I'm so drunk. What you up to, girl?" It was my dad. FML"
(although that would be more hilarious than horrible)

Everything's Amazing, Nobody's Happy

"We live in an amazing, amazing world, and it's wasted on the crappiest generation of spoiled idiots."

Watch this video. It's very very true...

(I couldn't find the video to embed, so thanks barefoot meg's blog!)
