tumblr crush

I can't enough of some tumblr pages and this happens to be one of them.

Let me introduce you to #myfriendsaremarried. It will make you spit out your morning coffee or almost choke on your salad at lunch from laughing so hard from some of the posts. I die (in the voice of Rachel Zoe) and seriously, this makes me almost cry at some points because of the hilariousness that is this site.

Sidenote: What did we do before tumblr? I don't even remember.

There are gems on each page, but here a few that were extra special for just for today. 


Ha ha - Oh Chels.

I die.
Let's hope it's not as bad as I think.



stay cool, peeps

Get yourself to a pool or beach stat for this weekend's heat. I'll be there. Fo' sure.

Happy weekending!

summer jams.

There are so many awesomely bad things with this video.

There are so many awesomely bad things with this song.

But, by the power of YouTube recommendations, it appeared on my sidebar while watching another equally amazingly awesome bad pop music video.




The gem below was introduced to me by the one and only CleShopaholic when she gave me Pixie Lott's entire album. 

"You willlll loveeeeeeeee this," she said and she was so right and is always spot on with her british pop recommendations for me.

I listen to this song everywhere - when I run, dance and sing to it in my apartment, when I'm driving my car and when I have my earbuds in and act like no one hears or sees me walking down the street.

It's just that kind of song.




And POOF! it's the weekend!


50 shades of I'm addicted

So it's true. I have finished the first book in the trilogy of sexual novels for housewives as everyone has been calling it, even though it's about a couple in their 20s. A very attractive couple in their 20s mind you.
I've also shared my opinion of the book with several friends who picked it up and have finished the whole damn trilogy already while I still need to start book two.

Well, since Alexa is sunning herself away way down in Florida, check out my first opinion of the book over on her blog today where she kindly asked me to contribute whatever I wanted to her blog. And, I chose this book as it is top of mind for everyone at this point.




I'll be starting the second one this weekend.


second book in hand

After, of course, I kick the half marathon's ass this Sunday morning - bright and early - with a few friends coming into town where we will eat and drink our way through some of favorite joints post race. We are planning an all day Sunday Funday with a possible Indians game, maybe lunch in Ohio City, maybe a trip to the beach and possibly some guac at Momocho.

Considering we would have burned 1,300 some odd calories - I think I can have a burger, don't you agree?

tim who?

What is all this ruckus with Tim Tebow?

You know when I hear about him - when he is supposedly dating a celebrity. Katy Perry? Kim Kardashian? Snooki?

Let's be honest - that boy's PR team can claim whattttteverrrrr they want to about him but you know he is a freak in the sheets and shaking his tail feather to every cleat chaser who comes into his locker room.

Come on.

He is a pro-athlete, young and did I mention a Pro-athlete?

However, seeing as today starts the weekend and everyone on Twitter is talking about the recent trade, I feel this card is incredibly timely. Don't you agree?

someecards.com - Let's celebrate Tim Tebow's arrival in New York with a night out that would completely mortify Tim Tebow


Here's to the weekend, Tebow-style!

Editor's note - I made it through to the next round in the Cleveland magazine #bloggerbracket contest - thank you for voting - Hop over here to vote for me and your other favorite bloggers.

because it's Friday...........

Friday, November 18, 2011
It's been a long week for me and I have a feeling for a lot of you there too.

With Thanksgiving coming up next week, we are all trying to get every last-minute detail completed so we can (or at least I feel this way ) walk comfortably out of the office for the next few days and enjoy the long weekend and crazy day that is Black Friday.

Or, in my case, a week and a half because I'll be vacationing it up starting next Friday. One week from today. It is lonnnnnnng over due. On a beach. With one of my best friends. Ah....bliss, relaxation and serenity now.


new placement for hair extensions
Feel free to add a caption to the above photo because it's absolutely ridiculous that I did that and, secondly, that it was captured on film.

I can only imagine what else was snapped throughout that wedding weekend.....


Friday fodder

Friday, October 15, 2010
Helloooooooo to the weekend!

It's been a long week filled with a lot of work, not a lot of working out or TV watching. Although I was able to squeeze in Gossip Girl with some great Chuck Bass oneliners and let's not forget about Modern Family and Cam's shiny blue bike shorts.



Anyway, this weekend I'll be celebrating with Always a Bridesmaid and Alexa at Best of Cleveland party by Cleveland Magazine for Alexa's win of best blog for the second year in a row. So, if you are going tonight, look for a group of girls who are talking loud (because that's the only way we know how to), laughing and possibly dancing  and join in the on the fun.

when you are feeling down...

Thursday, October 7, 2010
You know when you are having a bad day or your boyfriend pissed you off or your mom called to tell you something unimportant and annoyed you?

You  have those days too, right? Well when I'm having a bad day, I like to listen to certain music (insert British pop music) or I like to remind myself that it could get worse, which normally helps perk me up right away.

Well, if I need a laugh at the end of the long day or week, this video will always cheer me up. Always. I mean, have you actually ever seen a chicken do any of these things? No, never! But, Jason Batemen is still one fine actor, if I do say so myself.

RIP Arrested Development

And, he sings

If you've been reading this blog for awhile, you know that I a) love Lady Gaga and b) have been caught singing in the shower by the BF.

Because he thought it "was only right" that I shared my singing-in-the-shower videos, I thought it "was only right" to tape what I had to listen to this week while he was working.

I love that we have a separate office space now in our house. When we lived in the apartment, we only had the dining room area to work and both had to utilize that space. It wasn't easy to get work done there because it connected directly with the living room.

So, on this random week night, the BF is upstairs in the office working away, blaring my iTunes from my ancient computer and belting out part of the lyrics. He thinks my music sucks. Phrases often heard from him: "You have no taste in music. Who ARE half of these people? You have....techno? Lots of techno!"

For all those times you made fun of my music catalog, apparently you really did like some of the music after all, huh?

Do Not Playlist

Friday, April 9, 2010
If the BF and I ever decided to get married and host a traditional reception, there are several songs that will not be on the playlist. I will draft a separate "Do Not Playlist" contract if needed and if one of those songs are played, I'm not paying them. I don't care if the band/DJ tells me that these songs "really get the crowd moving," they aren't playing at any type of wedding function related to me.

Songs on my Do Not Playlist
Locomotion
Shout
Macarena
Electric Slide
Hokey Pokey
YMCA
Cha Cha Slide
C'mon N' Ride It (The Train)

And, no matter how many times my mom begs for the band or DJ to play it, there will be no Brick House by the Commodores.

I'm not sure when my dislike for this song started but it was kick-started this morning as it came on the radio when I was waking up from a great night of slumber. The LAST song I want to hear in the morning or at any wedding.



If you have been married or been to a lot of weddings like me, what are your favorite worst songs to be played?

Being a princess is hard

Friday, February 26, 2010
Today I was in a rush to get to TEDxCLE in a snow storm hitting Cleveland. In my rush to get the hell out of the apartment in order to not be late, apparently I left on my treasured flat iron. The BF sent me a nice reminder e-mail that I left it on.



Subject line: You're a fire hazard......

E-mail copy: Guess who left her flat iron in the on position- burning hot this morning?? That’s right princess!


Well, we princesses aren't perfect ALL the time, BF.

most miserable nothing

Friday, February 19, 2010


Hello Cleveland! I'm in Houston through the rest of the weekend with Jessica and Katelin, but I would like to direct you over to my fabulous real life and blogger friend, Alexa, who shares why we aren't the most miserable city.

For all of you who want to visit Cleveland, don't let this little article stop you by that well-known magazine, Forbes.

Come visit and a few of us Cleveland bloggers will direct you to our great restaurants and bars, neighborhoods all over Cleveland with interesting shops and people who own them, and yes, we will show you our burning river.

give me back my snooki

Let me go on the record and say, I don't think any amount of "making over" Snooki is necessary.

Hello! America loves her for the short, bouncy guidette that she is.

Insider Edition, don't take away her signature bump! If you do, she looks like every other dark-haired little mama hitting the clubs on the Saturday night on the Jersey Shore.




Look at her made over! You don't want to call her Snooki. You want to call her Nicole or Nikki or Nicolette or even Mrs. Snooki. Snooki doesn't roll of your tongue as nicely when you see her in a tailored dress instead of the "shirts" she buys at Rave and Deb and wears as a dress.

This is how we like to see her. Bump, pouty lips, long faux nails and a pair of aviators dangling off her hand. Although with the $10,000 she is making an episode, let's upgrade the bag to something like a Gucci, honey. You will have all the guidettes screaming your name then.

Friday Fodder

Friday, January 22, 2010
I'm not a morning person. I try to become better at it, but I've been known to hit snooze more than two times before getting out of bed.

I also don't wake up to beeping. I like to wake up to the radio. Well, in Cleveland, you never know what kind of music you are going to get so I'm picking with my stations.

Judge me now, but I can't wake up to our pop radio stations because I will the songs stuck in my head, find myself hating Ne-Yo because it's the song that wakes me up.

I found this christian pop station (I know, all sorts of ironic) but I don't know any of the songs, therefore, I won't get annoyed by what's blaring me to get my ass out of bed.

Until. This. Morning

I seriously woke up to this blaring in my ears.



What the hell did I turn my Friday into?

Friday Fodder

I saw this video on a friend's blog and on Twitter. She might be the cutest girl of all time belting out her love of Michael Jackson. I especially love the fist pumping and eye closing for extra emphasis.

Too freaking cute.



Happy Friday!

Shortest fuse

Friday, November 6, 2009
Canon Ball! This entire week I have been a loose canon. Not only do I have the shortest attention span, I also have a shorter fuse more than ever this week.

[Editor's note: I apologize in advance for anyone I hung up on without saying goodbye. You know I have bad phone etiquette especially when I think the conversation is over but you still keep talking on the other end. I will try not to do that anymore.]

I have dropped one too many f-bombs for no apparent reason.

I have yelled at my computer when it freezes.

I have yelled at People.com for the ridiculousness it calls news with Jon Gosselin. Take a poll, please, because Americans would ask you to stop reporting. Remember when E! News asked viewers if they were done with Heidi and Spencer? And they stopped reporting about them.

I am continually freaked out by the serial killer living in Cleveland.

Did I mention I've threatened to throw my computer? As if it even knows this....

I have deleted one too many friend e-mails about possible weekend plans. (I'm working and can't be distracted because if I am, my Explorer window would freeze.)

Whew. I feel better.

Even with my crazy emotional roller coaster that could kick Millenium Force's ass, I still made it through this week intact - or at least I think I did. Maybe we have to ask the BF for a better opinion.

We will now return to your regularly scheduled program version of Allison.

Happy Friday and I need a Christmas Ale.

Friday Fodder

Ever since the start of Facebook, it has garnered its share of nicknames, including being most known as the Stalkerbook. It's a legit, yet sort of creepy, way to check in on our friends or not-so-friends to see what they are up to nowadays.

Well, for every non-stalker on Facebook, we all have ours waiting in the wings to pop out and scare the shit of us. It could be a message from an ex-boyfriend, an ex-hook up or that crazy friend from high school from out of the blue that jets us right back to reality, reminding us to be careful of what we post on our pages.

This little gem came from a friend of mine. She's not friends with him on Facebook and hasn't talked to him in years. However, we know he's been watching her from the looks of his message, which was conveniently sent at 1:30 a.m.

To my friend from a past friend who is not currently her friend on Facebook
"I know that this is completely out of the blue but (insert name).... I really just would finally like to tell you something that i have kept to myself since we were in 5th grade. You are by farrrrrr THEE most beautiful woman i honestly have ever laid eyes on. I wish we were closer cause I also thought you were cool to hang out with but.... I understand. Even though this is somewhat really awkward I hope everything is great. Wow i feel kinda awkward."

Although she agrees it's flattering in a roundabout way, she is pretty embarrassed and may need to set some of her settings more private this weekend.

So, she would like to know - does she friend him now or "pretend" she didn't see the message?

My answer - No, no and no.

Happy Friday.

This gem of a post comes courtesy of the BF.

The next four minutes will bring you back to early 2000 when pop music was dominated by Carson Daly, TRL and the Backstreet Boys. Plus, it make you laugh your ass off.

What's also disturbingly funny is how well these boys know and love this song. You know they serenade their girlfriends or boyfriends with their rendition of this song.

Enjoy and happy Friday.


Friday Flashback Fodder

Friday, September 25, 2009
I think I'm going to mix up my Friday Fodder with a Friday Flashback. I'm going to feature all those really good but bad songs and videos that we all used to love. (Or maybe I just loved them.)

I'm starting it off with none other than Mr. Bobby Brown. After watching his Behind the Music yesterday, I recalled my love for "Every Little Step" you take.

How can you not love spandex with suspenders and suit jackets with your name on it?

Classic 80's style.
