I've been watching too much tv, trying to follow each and every show, so I'm going to narrow my tv time down to 4 shows. Still excessive probably, but we all need some couch time!!
Let me describe all these shows: Detective with consultant partner solves crimes, with romantic overtones (except for Mentalist). Castle and Bones both write crime novels which fulfills the romance that doesn't happen in their lives. Psych and Mentalist both use jedi mind tricks to one up their respective detective friends. The crimes are sometimes similar too, but I don't care. Most of the main characters in these shows have had parents involved in crime (victim or otherwise) which led them to their careers. If it's a good story, it's a good story. I can basically watch the same show 4x a week!
Creators of Grey's Anatomy have a new show out about doctors doctoring in foreign countries. It looks like it's going to be a lot of dramarama just like Grey's.

Make a replica of an American Apparel dress I just bought. It turns out to be just two large rectangles sewn together! It's highly versatile and can "transform" into like 20 dresses/skirts. Great idea, AA, great idea. Now I steals it.
Begin making hats for whoever desires one. My first is a cat hat.
Paint Initial art for Fifioni. Yay, I get to see you in person in 2 days! So excited. You better not cry when I hold you or.. or.. I'll be very sad. :(
FINISH the stupid book.
I forgot where I found this image. Cross-stitching looks like lots of pixely fun. I'll have to remember to pick up cross stitching supplies next time at Michael's of Joann.

On a good note, I got these lovely boots for a decent price from Target. :) Laugh all you want sistah (and bro in law), but I'll be wearing them all Autumn. Heck, I'm going to bring them with me to Austin so I can wear it there while I hang out with y'all.

This print combines several things I like: dog, basket, bike, duck, and yellow.
These necklaces would complement the dresses perfectly. The dresses and the accessories remind me mini weekend vacations to seaside towns that I love so much.
Alas, even though the above dresses are on sale, Anthropologie is still too expensive for my wallet. I can only gawk at the dresses and dream about the beach for now.

I'm glad Etsy has a vintage section so we can shop vintage from the comfort of our cushy computer chairs instead of rummaging through stacks of old musty things, although that can be quite an adventure! Here are some vintage finds that I have my eyes on. It's been a while since I etsy'd and there are more sellers than ever now! You can find anything and everything on etsy. I love it!

The hyped up Breslin Bar had a TWO hour wait for a table and probably another TWO hour wait for food after that, so we decided to head to Les Halles, which is close enough and had a shorter waiting time. This decision suited me because I wasn't expecting much from the Breslin. Serving high fat content pork products doesn't make a good restaurant. At Les Halles, we ordered escargot in garlic butter sauce, mushroom puff pastry, hangar steak, pork loin, and braised beef. For dessert, we had creme brulee, chocolate soufflé, and apple pastry and it was ALL DELICIOUS!!
My faves were escargot (love that garlic butter), braised beef, and the creme brulee.

iEat (I ate)
Still haven't gone anywhere on my list to eat yet, but hoping to visit Breslin tonight for their fatty pork products! Hooray for fatty pork products!
