Romper 411.

Here's the deal,

I have ALWAYS had issues with romper wearing chicks. The problem I have always found is in the buns. Seriously, never seen a set of buns that looked cute in a romper. Whether it was the "mom jean" elongated look or the UTB (up the butt) wedge look, or the evidence of saggy buns... I have always been less than impressed.

All of that changed, for a minute, when the Easter bunny brought me THE CUTEST romper. Seersucker inspired (from Target, $18, doubt they could really afford to suck the seer) perfect shade of teal and best thing yet, my buns look fab in it. No issues what. so. ever. Until the day I chose to wear it...

I remember it vividly, April 8th, 2010. (yea, it was yesterday) I chose to sport the perfectly put together spring garb on a sunny day because my painting for the week was finished and I wanted to be the cutest gift store owner around. Then it happened. After a day of driving, sitting, standing, sitting, walking, etc. MY. BUNS. SAGGED. (makes me tear up just thinking about it) One minute I was perfect; high heeled sandals, to die for romper, jean jacket with the perfect roll and scrunch, and mini collar-pop (i forgot to mention that, pretty much a necessity as well) and the next I was had some over stretched out leg holes and saggy buns. Mort-i-fying.

The point of this post is to inform the public that after finding the perfect fitting romper be cautious about the amount of time in said product. Rompers should be worn to standing events only lasting a few hours at most. Not the appropriate day to drinks outfit. Unless you want to look like those girls I look at with disgust (and then momentarily became)

Hugs and Kisses.

Fashion Advice.

The perfect jean jacket is a "must have" staple this spring. Perfect with the perfect simple tank with skinny black or white jeans or an everyday must wear with sun dresses. Its a little inappropriate to sport the summery dresses sans shoulder cover this early in the year, so... Throw on your jean jacket and you're golden.

[Please note when wearing your jean jacket participating in the roll and scrunch is a MUST.]

Roll twice, scrunch once, repeat for other arm.

HMD's Version of a Sack Lunch.

(Harry):There are two kinds of women: high maintenance and low maintenance.
(Sally): Which one am I?
(Harry): You're the worst kind. You're high maintenance but you think you're low maintenance.

:: "High Maintenance Dani's" Guide to Lunch::

Sliced, grilled pork tenderloin with pomegranate glaze
Caprese Salad
100 Calorie Chips Ahoy Snack Pack


Pork was cooked the night before...

Tenderloin slices sprinkled with garlic salt and pepper, both sides (I go heavy on the pepper because I love all things pepper crusted?

Grill on a cooking spray covered grill pan until cooked through to desired wellness.

While cooking the pork, bring 1 cup POM and 1/8 cup sugar to a boil and let simmer til reduced.

Pour over pork on grill pan and cook for an additional few minutes so the pork can soak in the flavors.

Serve with additional POM juices.

[when taking for lunch slice pork and place in tupperware, drizzle with pom. delish cold]

Caprese Salad....

Today I filled my tupperware with chunks of roma tomatoes and mozzerella, and basil slices. Drizzle with olive oil, a sprinkle of garlic salt and a twist or 2 of pepper and enjoy.

Punctuation 2010

My Apologies:

FIrst, let me start by informing my readers [the average blog is read by all of 6 people, so I'm talking to you] that I am relatively incapable of properly placing a comma. I either over place or skip the comma step all together. Please don't be offended.

Second, it has recently come to my opinion that through the influx of texting the general public has lost the art of the double space post period. [and by "general public" I'm referring to myself] Sorry, about that as well.

No Apologies for:

Replacing boring old parantheses with brackets. Bottom line, brackets are cuter. Period.

Regular use of "..." and the word "so"... this blog should be read like I talk, so... there's that.

And finally the all so clever passage enders...


Becoming a Blogger

In an effort to follow in my big sister's footsteps and stay connected with my world, I have created a blog.

I have been saying "I love my life" so much lately that I should coin the phrase. So this blog is written with hopes to share my life, love and experiences as well as my eccentric opinions and idiosyncrasies.

Stay tuned...
