Goofus and Gallant.

Ha. Remember them from 'Highlights' magazine? I can still smell my childhood denist's office whenever I think about it. Strange, but it's the only place I really ever read it.

Anywho, this is my shopping version of G&G.


This bracelet that I just bought for myself on Etsy. No special occasion...I basically just loved it and had to have it asap. Perhaps I'll consider it a V-Day gift to self? Obvi, mine will say "alex joseph"...and I even asked the artist if she could add a little heart stamp to either side of his name. Le swoon.


Need I say anything more? Well, yes...actually I do. I would like to take this opportunity to hippity hop onto my little soapbox and scold the PR people @ Toyota for their cheesily done "goodwill" commercial proclaiming how they made the decision to do this recall and make things right. Um, bullshit much? The government made them do it. And the quality problems have been present for just took this long for it to catch up with them. Buy American!!! And let me stop this before you go all bananas on me with the knowledge that foreign companies have plants in the U.S. I totally know that. I work in this industry, remember? And in PR, nonetheless. Two thumbs up for the American jobs creation, but the profits still go overseas. Two thumbs way, way down.

Tomorrow I think I shall post some recent and adorable photos of Mister Alex. It's  been far too long since his sweet cheeks have graced my little corner of the internets.

I totally agree, but I do not discuss all the time, as I do not want to get into heated arguments about buying foreign cars with people.

I got your back KVW :)

My mom also works in the car industry, so I totally agree, natch.

Also.. I NEED that bracelet. I just need an awesome little saying to go on it because obviously I don't have a cutie patootie baby's name to put on it.

And, unfortunately, the tri is in the Kzoo area. BUT, I'm looking to move back to the mitten state, so I'm thinking a meet up is in our future. Duh.

I asked my mom for a ring from etsy with Liam's name on it. I, too, HAD to have it as soon as I saw it.
