10 Things I’m Excited about RIGHT NOW

July 11, 2011

1. My upcoming vacation. Although I’m not thrilled to be starting it in Disneyland, the people watching can’t be beat. The outfit choices, fanny packs and fighting families entertain me. I also really like churros and funnel cake.

Yes I can!

2. So You Think You Can Dance. I love that show. Every week I watch and judge the contestants as if I’m on the panel. Sometimes, I get up and do my own hip-hop, contemporary or Irish routines. Though I’m not trained in any of these styles (and the show doesn’t even feature Irish dancing),  my roommate enjoys these spastic outbursts which can only mean I’m talented enough to try out.

3. The revival of book club. I haven’t read a book since our last choice in…May? I can feel myself getting stupider.

4. Professional seminars/workshops. I’ve taken several recently including a very informative session with Donna Fedor. That lady motivates AND offers great career advice.

5. Clean sheets. I washed them last night. They smell good.

6. Breakfast. I just ate cottage cheese with fresh peaches and plums. Delicious and nutritious!


7. Cinnabon. I’ve been thinking about it a lot the last few minutes, and I really want one. Plus, since I ate such a healthful breakfast, I don’t see why I shouldn’t have a treat.

8. Mail. According to Gmail, I can expect my next movie from Netflix today! Even though I know exactly which movie I will receive, opening that red envelope just thrills me. Then I’ll let it sit on the entertainment center for like two weeks before watching it.

9. Depositing checks. Someone needs to pay her Visa bill. Badly.


10.  Tassi. This could easily be a RAWC&A topic except that it’s awesome! You put it over your head and use it like a headband to wash your face. Wait…there’s more. The bottom of the band is thicker, so you can tuck all of your hair into it. So much fun! I wear it around during the face process (washing, toning, moisturizing, seruming, etc.) and to put on make-up. It’s like my own head kangaroo pouch. That’s really weird, but you know what I mean.

Hi Readers,

I have a few very important announcements. First off, Beth is taking a short break from our blog. She and her husband recently purchased their first home and are busy moving in, renovating and attacking the jungle that they call their front yard. She’s super busy and promises to return with fresh TITs. Second, during Beth’s absence we’ve invited a few guest bloggers to write for us. Posts will continue to go up on Mondays and Thursdays, though I can’t say who will author them. 🙂 Third, I’ve been feeling really blah lately, so I apologize for the lack of new material. I hope you’ll forgive me. Lastly, thanks to everyone who voted in our first Reader’s Choice poll. We’ll get to work on what YOU want quick-style!


Reader’s Choice

Beth and I pick our topics several weeks in advance. In preparation for my July choices, I want to give you the power! Choose wisely. The facts we reveal may not be pretty. 🙂


P.S. Look for my updated Disney post later today.

May 2011 Fan of the Month

Beth G. and I met about four years ago at our former company. She showed me the ropes, offered helpful advice and steered me away from office weirdos (and rest assured, there were A LOT of those). As one of the most genuinely nice people in the world, she never lost her patience with me and always showed interest in my personal and professional happiness. She was a supportive mentor and became a great friend.

Beth G. not to be confused with my co-blogger Beth R. What can I say? I like Beths.

The REAL reason why Beth is cooler than you (and me) is she changed her life’s path for the better. Beth combined her passions for nature (she is the only person I’ve ever met who literally smushes, sniffs, and assesses the texture of a flower before announcing it’s Latin name – and this was just a random flower in a parking lot) and justice to become a Park Ranger. It took a lot of time, practice (shooting didn’t come naturally) and hard work, but she made her dream come true. And that’s rad.

Yeah, she climbs rocks for fun. No big deal.

It’s exciting to have such inspiring fans. Thanks for reading Beth…and get a job in CA already! 🙂

Ashley shared her favorite trends with you. She is a more positive person than I. (She has the blonde hair and I have the dark hair. It’s a role we were born into) Instead of things I love, I am bringing you…

The summer 2011 fashion trends that will seem like a mistake when you look at pictures five years from now

1. Pattern “matching”

She looks good, but that is because she is a gorgeous model. You are not.

2. Stripper Shoes

Specifically, stripper shoes from 1970

3. Short shorts

And she threw in some stripper shoes for good luck.

Did you tell Ashley your favorite trend? Share your least favorite with me.
