My Spouse, the Fashionisto

The night I met my husband, he was dressed like this:

Hot, right? Little did he know that his fashion choice of the cutoffs so short that the pockets were hanging out was ahead of its time.

That's right, a mere two and a half years later, I discover that according to Victoria's Secret (I get their catalog. What of it?), cutoffs so short that the pockets hang out is in.


I would show you multiple examples of this style (there are several) or in the least post a link to Victoria's website, but goodness me people, this is a family place! If you want further proof that Lewis retroactively kick-started a booming summer trend, go find the website yourself.

The moral of the story? You should be jealous that Victoria's Secret doesn't get fashion advice from your husband.

Eat It, Yahoo! I'm Going for Happy!

There is currently an article on Yahoo outlining the top ten worst-paying college degrees. I'm sure it's no surprise to anyone that Elementary Education is on the list. Number two, in fact. So if there is anyone out there who believed Lewis and I are only going to teach for the money, you can now lay your doubts at rest. There is now empirical evidence to suggest that fiscally, we are crazy people for going into this career field.

You think we're poor now as we barely scrape by each month between rent and groceries - ha! Just wait til we have younglings and a mortgage!

But dagnabit, we're going to be happy. Cause teaching is fun and we like it.

Thank You, Captain Obvious

I just read an article in Time about serial marry-ers and how marriage is the one area in life where we allow repeat offenders to do it over and over again. Hazardous drivers get their licenses revoked; failing college students get kicked out of school; doctors who violate their codes and creeds and crap could lose their license for just one infraction, but any single consenting adult can marry any other single consenting adult any time they please. The story cited Larry King who is currently getting divorced for the eighth time. It talked about a variety of celebrities with multiple ex-spouses - Liz Taylor, Mickey Rooney, William Shatner, etc.

The story then went on to talk about the late Linda Wolfe of Indiana who got married 23 times (although the last one - just the last one, mind - was just a publicity stunt). She is official record holder. Even with 23 marital failures, Linda was not to be discouraged and before she passed said that she wouldn't mind marrying again. That declaration had a caveat, however. She would only marry a straight man. From the article, I quote, "On the two occasions she married a gay guy, it didn't take."

Uh... She's been married and divorced 23 times. I'm pretty sure NONE of them took. And I'm willing to bet that her husbands' sexual orientations had nothing to do with that.

Have I Become a Hippie-Dippie Granola?

Carrot sticks.
And last but not least, some homemade granola balls - easier to make than bars.

This is what I've eaten recently. And I've been enjoying it!

That's HOMEMADE granola.

I mean, this is a good thing, no doubt, but what the what?

That's all.

PS: Lest you fear for my poor health, Lewis went out to dinner last night with his friends, so I had macaroni and cheese for dinner last night. With side of Kinder Eggs and apple juice.
