1. My kitchen is as messy as it’s ever been. Seriously. I tried to clean as I go (went?) and it did nothing but cause me to make more of a mess.


2. But look! I made something green today.

It’s totally not what you think. Including zucchini bread or cake or any other vegetable treat that you people try to pass off as dessert.


3. Because of this I want a cupcake. And a milkshake. Maybe just a cupcake milkshake?


4. We all know I have a massive shoe obsession. I sort of want these to wear… somewhere. And I will pay someone to wear these. Holy creepers. Oh! And these. I promise you’ll look hot. [Shhhh.] P.S. I want these too.


5. It’s not like I sit around on Pinterest all day looking up shoes or anything so STOP JUDGING ME!


6. Pretty sure I’m the only one in the universe who still isn’t over the Jessica Simpson/Nick Lachey break up. I’m not even joking. Okay I take that back… I know my friend Cindy isn’t over it either.


7. I seriously can not stop drinking these. They taste like sweet summer and I forget that there is tequila in them and I drink two and then I… can’t do anything.


8. If you blog, then you know what it’s like to have blog crushes. Totally normal and awesome to creepily love someone across the computer screen. My current blog crushes are Katie and Chelsey. I have absolutely nothing in common with either of them (okay, I miiiight be exaggerating a little) but I still love them all the same. If you don’t blog, then feel free to go tell everyone you know how weird I am.


9. Since I’ve got nothing exciting for you today, here’s Bella.

And yes, I still want to eat her face off.

    I was watching TLC last night and there was a commercial for Nick and Venissa’s wedding – which will be broadcast on Saturday and I’m telling myself I will NOT watch! I instantly turned to Russ and told him he’s stupid and I liked him with Jessica WAY better. He rolled his eyes…they just don’t understand!! haha

    I feel the same way about Nick & Jessica too! My fiance bought me the Newlyweds show on dvd a few years ago, and we still like to look back at it and laugh at all the silliness :)

    I cannot believe I thought I was the only one that was NOT BUYING his new wedding. When he and Jess broke up I just wouldn’t believe it. I thought FOR SURE they will get back together and I also hoped it was a Marketing Move. WRONG! He was SO in love with her!!! How can he possibly be marrying this rebound girl??? I even bought his CD with all those weepy songs on it!! Anywho, I’m not into her anymore and I’m certainly not watching him and his new girl get fake married!! ;)

      I bought it too. Sad.

    Oh I LOVE to hear you ramble!
    I’m sure you’ve got LOTS of us blogging girls CRUSHIN’ on you! xo
    {I love everything about YOU…so there!} ;)
    I have a question~and maybe I need to find THE BELLA post.
    Does Miss Bella live with you?
    Why was I thinking she was your parent’s dog?
    I will take a peek back in time and find out!
    Happy Day you SWEET girl!
    And to Miss Bella~Doogan and I blow a million snuggles and kisses!


    • Jessica — July 27th, 2011 @ 11:14 am

      Yep you are right!! Bella lives at my parents house. We consider her our :family dog: because we’ve always had golden retrievers growing up! But I still go see her everyday – she is only 5 minutes away. :)

    You have no idea how much I love you, so for me to find out that you have a blog crush on ME, well, it’s just the best day ever.

    I absolutely love strawberry margaritas! Bella looks like a lot of fun and how can you say NO to that cute little face.

    I love Tuesday Things. Miss Bella is super adorable…I have a Bella too, she is half golden, half husky. She has one blue eye and one brown eye. I remember when she was that small! If only they could stay that way forever. Now she is 50 pounds (and growing) and can literally pull me right over.
    PS. I think I need to start drinking more cocktails.

    PS. Just discovering pintrest – what is it?? I love it!


    • Jessica — July 27th, 2011 @ 6:51 pm

      It’s like a virtual pinboard where you can “pin” images (with the corresponding link) that you like. I’m obsessed.

    alex — July 27, 2011 @ 1:05 pm

    Sadly, I would buy the bedazzled shoes..minus the spikes. They kinda creep me out. I’m addicted to anything that sparkles! :)

    Oh.My.Gosh. I totally have to make these Margarita’s! The look marvelous dahling!

    Caroline — July 27, 2011 @ 3:04 pm

    Wow, that margarita looks delicious, and your puppy is so cute! I have a Golden as well (Chloe), but she’s much older. I think she’s around 11 now. Also, I’m not judging your love of shoes at all. I have the worst obsession with high heels, I think it’s becoming a problem. I stop counting the heels in my closet once I get to pair 20. Those cream heels with the bow…I DIE.

    Nancy B. — July 27, 2011 @ 4:08 pm

    A few things:
    a) I’m not over Nick and Jess either. The only breakup more devastating to me was Jen and Brad!
    b) I don’t have a blog, but I do totally have a blog crush on you
    c) Pinterest is the biggest time suck I have come across in a looong time. (and I love it!)
    d) The only thing better than cupcakes is… well is there really anything better than cupcakes?!
    e) I have a 12 year old golden retriever and Bella is TOTALLY giving me puppy fever! :)


    • Jessica — July 27th, 2011 @ 4:38 pm

      I made something better than cupcakes today. Wait until Saturday!

    I want your shoe closet. I thought I had a good collection going- you totally beat me! Thank God school shopping is coming up SOON so I can shop for more!

    Devon — July 27, 2011 @ 7:36 pm

    Jessica! I am obsessed with your blog, it’s my favorite! I just had to comment and thank you for sharing that cupcake milkshake recipe from Confessions of a Cookbook Queen! I don’t know if you’ve tried it, but as soon as I clicked on the link, I couldn’t get it out of my head! I had to run to the store today and pick up some ice cream, but as soon as I took a sip, I knew it was worth it. It felt like I was drinking liquid cake! You HAVE to try it, if you haven’t already!!

    Ann — July 27, 2011 @ 8:46 pm

    I love when you do this sort of post! I have to say tho…I would fall on my face wearing those shoes and then the only shoes I’d be wearing are casts….
