1. I’m so glad I’m not the only one who is a freak about scents. Yep, I just called you a freak… lovingly.


2. Last week Mr. How Sweet spent a good chunk of his evening wrapping his coworker’s phone in thousands of rubber bands. I wish I was joking… but I’m not.


3. Want.

Want more.

Want mostest.


4. I can’t think of many things better than getting your hair done. Except for when that day includes margaritas.

I’m hoping today includes both.


5. While getting my hair done, I started craving a salad… like fresh juicy things… called vegetables… including tomatoes and romaine and maybe even cucumbers (WTF?) and lots of mozzarella and a giant pour of olive oil + 2 big pinches of smoked sea salt + a toasted golden baguette. So I drank a mocha coconut frappucino.


6. Speaking of coconut, LOOK.at.this. No. Seriously. Look!


7. I actually think I got stupider from watching Bachelor Pad last night.


8. Bella is getting big. It stinks. Can’t I stunt her growth or something?


9. That Bella pic was made possible by some free app called Water My Photo. If you couldn’t tell, I’m a little app obsessed. Note to self: get life soon.

    Oh man, I’ve downloaded about 8 photo apps in the last 24 hours, now I’m gonna have to download another one. Also, I really want to wrap my friend’s phone in elastic bands now as she has a phobia of them but obviously that would be mean and not at all funny…


    • Jessica — August 16th, 2011 @ 5:12 pm

      You’re right… not funny. I can’t stop laughing.

    I just finally started using Pinterest. I’m addicted and that picture of the closet is amazing! Bella is also completely adorable! Her ears look so soft and fluffy.

    So cute! And, since my phone died a few days ago I was forced to get a new one and decided to switch from my Droid to an iphone and I am LOVING it! I finally get why the Instagram app is so cool! Love the fun effects of both those apps! :)

    Jessica, seriously…I just got my iphone two days ago and I am ob.sessed. I love Instagram (as I know you do too) and Camera+. I just can’t stop!!

    Okay on to more important things — your hair looks amazing. And stop being so pretty! :) Mr. How Sweet is silly…that’s kind of funny. And Bella is so freakishly adorable. Want want want.

    carly {carlyklock} — August 16, 2011 @ 5:22 pm

    p.s. i carried my babies into work in a canvas tote bag to show them off (yes, they both fit). it was adorable – their little heads and paws sticking out of the top.

    now? now i have horses (pics: http://www.carlyklock.com/2011/08/last-friday-seemingly-endless-food-blog.html). it’s too late for me, but maybe you can still figure out the growth-stunting thing.

    carly {carlyklock} — August 16, 2011 @ 5:23 pm

    p.p.s. speaking of photo apps – how do you get your instagram photos to post to your fan page as opposed to your personal profile? do you just have to do that manually?


    • Jessica — August 16th, 2011 @ 5:50 pm

      I just do mine manually, I’ve been wondering the same thing!

    carly {carlyklock} — August 16, 2011 @ 5:23 pm

    p.p.p.s. COME TO NASHVILLE.

    okay, okay. i’m done.

    Love the rubbberbands. One year they had a bit of a prank war at my husband’s work. That was one of them, as well as the Stapler in Jello, and more extravagant pranks like building a roof and sides on someone’s cube to turn it into house. It was pretty awesome.

    Helen — August 16, 2011 @ 6:56 pm

    Jessica! I actually made homemade Samoas before – http://theshizzles.tumblr.com/post/3940617746

    I got the recipe from here:

    I bet you would LOVE these!

    Mimi — August 16, 2011 @ 7:28 pm

    Want MORE…they are sooo cute! And Bella is the perfect accessory…even when she gets to 60lbs! Let me know when she would like a playdate with a Cranberry-area golden boy!

    Natalie — August 16, 2011 @ 7:33 pm

    Bella is so adorable!!!

    Love your blog and am so thrilled when I get a chance to read it. Thanks for the laughs!

    BTW, scents I love are puppies breath (seriously need to make that into a candle!), fresh cut grass, my husbands deodorant (I know it sounds gross but it’s Irish Spring and I love that fresh smell), Stetson cologne, and my go to scent is a Fresh Cotton perfume. Seriously smells like fresh laundry!

    Kim — August 16, 2011 @ 7:35 pm

    RUBBERBANDS!!! Love it!


  27. #
    Rachel @ Baked by Rachel — August 16, 2011 @ 7:39 pm

    possibly the cutest puppy ever. if you have a margarita – please have another for me. and good grief you’re making me want a salad – it’s not normal.

    Bella is too freaking cute!!

    Kim in MD — August 16, 2011 @ 8:04 pm

    And just why was Mr. How Sweet wrapping the phone with rubber bands??? Bella is adorable, BTW, and now I am craving a salad! ;-)

    Katie — August 16, 2011 @ 8:07 pm

    I love getting my hair done so much. So, so much. I have to practice self-restraint in making hair appointments. If it was up to me, I’d go every day just for someone to wash and play with my hair for an hour or so while we talked about trashy TV and babies. Because that’s what my hairdresser and I do.


  31. #
    Robyn — August 16, 2011 @ 8:10 pm

    Your Mr. had a lot of extra time on his hands to wrap his coworker’s phone in thousands of rubber bands. LOL!
    I still like my little dog even though she is not as cute as her puppy self. I really love her now that she got a bath this afternoon! I know it makes her feel better and I feel like I did a good deed, but it is a task I tend to put off.

    Kristy Lynn @ Gastronomical Sovereignty — August 16, 2011 @ 8:16 pm

    stop watching that show. seriously. the human race does not need to get dumber. turn it off!

    PS. keep eating vegetables.


  33. #
    Lindsay — August 16, 2011 @ 8:17 pm

    Love your Tuesday things! I just sent my husband the picture you posted of the rubber banded phone. He does stuff like that all the time to his coworkers (pennies stuck between every key on their keyboard, black tape over their mouse sensor so it won’t work…). He’ll have to try this one soon!


  34. #
    Michelle — August 16, 2011 @ 8:19 pm

    Funny thing is that my husband watched that show without me last night, and he I think he secretly enjoyed it :)

    Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga — August 16, 2011 @ 8:59 pm

    I love all the apps you have. I want to see a more real life-like pic of your new hair though! Because I am hair obsessed :)

    And I saw Cookies & Cups Samoas Bark when she posted it the other day….fabulous!!!

    Shelbie @ Good Life — August 16, 2011 @ 9:26 pm

    Haha – I’m so glad I’m not the only one who got sucked into the Bachelor Pad. The whole time I just sat and muttered to myself, “Casey is so stupid, he is so ridiculous I am embarassed for him.” Is it just me or is there nothing good on T.V. Monday nights?! Oh well, Ames and Kirk are nice to look at!


  37. #
    Aimee @ ShugarySweets — August 16, 2011 @ 10:01 pm

    Totally cracking up. Not sure why. I think it’s cause I kept expecting your little want/want mostest etc thing to end in bacon. Or bacon covered shoes. Love the apps. I’m making my list. Just need to get the phone.


  38. #
    Shari @ Chicago Cuisine Critique — August 16, 2011 @ 10:10 pm

    emily W. — August 16, 2011 @ 10:43 pm

    Someone has to help me understand why it is I bother watching any show with the word “bachelor” in it…I think they’re all absolutely retarded, but I can’t peel my face away.

    (It miiiiight have something to do with the fact that I have 2 channels…maybe…)

    Casey @ Pocket Full of Sunshine — August 16, 2011 @ 11:11 pm

    Haha I love that app! I want. :) I bet I can’t get it though b/c I don’t have an iPhone.

    Getting my hair done is always one of my fave days. I just love it. Especially when they do the head massage. I always make sure to tell them how awesome it feel so maybe it will go a little longer. :)

    Yammie @ Yammie's Noshery — August 16, 2011 @ 11:53 pm

    we have a golden retriever and I literally think his growth is stunted. He’s a few years old, so I finally realized that he must be done growing. It’s hilarious though cause he has a gigantic head and a short little body. He’s pretty adorable. I guess my childhood dream came true of having a puppy that never grows up.

    I will not download another photo app…
    I will not download another photo app…

    (downloading water photo app)

    Hello, my name is Tara and I’m a photo app-aholic and today I fell off the wagon…again. I was app free for 6 hours 31 minutes.

    Jessica, the Vintage photo app is very cool as well.

    FINALLY! I got to see your hair. I LOVE it. You look so pretty. I want to steal Bella fyi.

    Lynne @ 365 Days of Baking — August 17, 2011 @ 9:04 am

    Oh my gosh!!!!!! The rubber bands are so freakin’ hysterical!!! I laughed so hard when I saw that picture. Oh, man. How is it he has that much time on his hands at work to do something like that?? Wish I could’ve been there to see the coworker’s reaction.
    Oh, and yes, yes, yes to the mostest. The other wants I’d probably twist my ankle.
    Hugs, Jessica!

    I totally thought Miss Bella was gazing into a pool of water! ;o)
    What a sweet sweet furry girl she is.
    Doogan likes Bella…he told me. ;o)

    You ROCK sweet girl.

    You have got to stop linking to Pinterest. Everytime I click on one, I end up spending a couple hours on it. So addicting.
