Rock 'n' Roll

I've decided to run in the Seattle Rock 'n' Roll 1/2 marathon in June. I registered today and training starts... today! Now, I've done some "light running" in the past (think 5K fun runs), but never a real, serious, I'm in pain, call a doctor, why did I do this, I hate running kinda run. Wish me luck!

Feeling very grateful.

Happy Valentine's Day

After spending a windy, rainy evening in Victoria B.C. with only one, flimsy umbrella...
this would have been sorta perfect.

Aspiring matchbook girl

The matchbook girl...

views the world through rose colored glasses • loves to throw dinner parties, but has been known to burn the roast • values eccentricity over convention • is the first to laugh at her own bad jokes • knows the cha-cha, the charleston, and the tango • paints her nails bright coral when she's feeling blue • is infinitely curious • could happily live off of red velvet cake • pens hand written notes to her grandmother • has a signature shade of lipstick • secretly thinks she may be babe paley reincarnated • received an iPAD for her birthday, but will never give up her library card • has a bucket list a mile long and dreams a dime a dozen • is smart, but never a show-off • listens to the day's forecast, but trusts her own intuition • never says no to a sunday matinee at the theater • is quick to blush, but never short of a witty reply • has a skip in her step and a twinkle in her eye • always shares her last piece of gum

Check out this fun, online magazine.

Valentine's Wears

Funny to think I started this (albeit, sporadically updated) little blog just over a year ago. How time flies. This time last year I was in SF two weekends in a row; including the Superbowl and Valentine's Day (visiting a guy I dated very briefly). I remember trying to figure out what to pack on those trips. I think I just wore a LDB last V-day and called it good. This year I didn't worry too much about my Superbowl wears (get it) but I guess my choice of kelly green top made me a default Packers fan. Whatevs, they won. Truth be told, I mainly spent the game eating way too much food and drinking way too much beer. I'm paying for it today.

This weekend the bf and I are headed to Victoria, B.C. to celebrate Christmas. Well technically it's my Christmas gift from him (awww). I've already started to think about outfits because this week is slammed and we are leaving bright and early Saturday morning. I figure I'll need three outfits total: one to wear over on the ferry and during the day, something cuter for going out that night, and another day-time outfit for Sunday since we will be there until 5p.m. Their weather is like ours, so rain and cooler temps are on the agenda.

Monday night we are going to Intiman's Valentine's Cabaret. I'm so freaking excited! It was my idea because I love love love Daniel Breaker, but the boy is responsible for dinner plans. I'm thinking I'll wear a red dress this year. According to Cosmo (I know), men like the color red on women. I never wear red but I suppose Valentine's Day is a fine time to start.

It's fun to look back over the past year and see the way things turned out. If you're reading this babe, I'm really happy I met you! Happy Valentine's Day.
