Granted, it is a First World Dilemma, but have you noticed that after a certain size, little girl’s clothes oftentimes look less like they belong on little girls and more like a Queens city block exploded on a T-shirt?  My cousin and I were recently talking about how we are just not digging most of the drunken-bedazzled episodes we see featured in the girls’ section of the department...

What are you doing this weekend? I’ve convinced a friend to go see The Great Gatsby with me on Saturday night while Clark hosts a Sci-fi movie marathon at the house. Did you read that book in high school? I read it in the 9th grade, and it was the first time I had ever heard of the phrases, “old money” and “new money”. My family didn’t have any money–...

You never {and I mean never} know when one might come in handy. My car is in the shop, so I took Clark’s car {during the Friday Rush Hour Exodus} downtown for the event at the Georgia Aquarium. He drives a...

What are you doing this weekend? Clark and I are going to the Safehouse Urban Gala at the Georgia Aquarium on Friday night. He will be the one with a guitar strapped to him, and I will be the one wearing a gown because as we’ve clearly established, there is a difference between a dress and a gown. Ahem. I haven’t worn a gown since high school {aside from my wedding gown, and...
