Happy Friday, muffins!

I'm snowed in with my husband, and I couldn't be happier.  The Olympics, a bunch of Netflix and lots of red wine.  Sounds like a perfect weekend to me.

Making this recipe from The Pioneer Woman for dinner tonight...

And these brownies from Roost tomorrow

Have a fabulous one!!

Speaking of the winter blues, this is what I do to beat mine.  A bright manicure and a lot of spray tan.

Perfect for days like today:

Stella McCartney for Gap Kids.

She makes me want to have a baby just for the sake of the wardrobe.

Hell, I'd have one for the tutus alone.

Way, Jose.

There really doesn't seem to be anything that Jose Villa doesn't do exquisitely.  I mean...




(I think these are my favorites.  If I hadn't already been engaged twice I would do it again just for photos like these!)

Polaroids (!!!!):

and of course, Weddings:


Talent like that, my god.  I can't even imagine.

Winter blues.

I've been experiencing them lately.  Have you?
How about this video to get focused on sunny days to come.

NYC Fashion Week- Badgley Mischka

If I owned these pieces, I'd wear them.  All day long.

Lots of greys, silvers, beiges and blacks.  My kind of collection.

Actual conversation with the Actual Mr. Diagnosis Deferred.

Mr. DD:  Quit studying and come watch the Olympics with me.
Mrs. DD:  I'm not studying.  I'm blogging.
Mr. DD:  You're what?
Mrs. DD:  Blogging.
Mr. DD:  Huh?
Mrs. DD: BLOGG-ing.
Mr. DD: What are you doing?
Mr. DD:  Blogging?  I thought you quit that after we got married...

He doesn't even know my blog address.  I have no idea why, but I  find this is terribly endearing.

NYC Fashion Week favorites- Christian Siriano

Of course.


 Some structure, some softness.  Lots of ruffles.  He never disappoints.

"I wear the feathers in my relationship,"

On "The View" this week, Victoria Beckham shared her thoughts on the costumes of some of the male skaters.  She insisted there was "nothing good" about their over-the-top costumes.  "If David came home dressed like that - could you imagine? Terrible."

(I am obsessed with Johnny Weir, (not so) secretly wishing we were BFFs.)

In an unexpected turn of events, I find myself completely disagreeing with Ms. Vicki Beckham. I don't think this has ever happened before.  Typically I die for her style, her husband, even that tiny little bobble-headed body of hers...  But this time, she's got it all wrong.  This is skating!  These are the Olympics!  These boys are allowed some pizazz!  Lighten up, Victoria.  I adored every last sequin, tassel and feather.  Every sailor outfit, farmer get-up and bizarre skeleton suit.  Amen.

Still obsessed.

My mother taught me that when you fall in love with a material thing, you should wait at least a week.  If the week passes and you're still in love, then and only then should you buy it.  'Cause it must be true love.  I've been obsessing over these since before my wedding.... I think it's time.


 Did I mention that they're made of vintage silk.  Oh my.
Get yours here.

Are you kidding?

The Olympics, Westminster Dog Show and American Idol all on the same night.  Is this some kind of sick joke?  I'm hyperventilating already.  When I say my prayers tonight I'll be thanking baby Jesus for DVRs.

(my favorites!)

Oh, and don't think for a second that I've forgotten that it's fashion week.  I'm closely monitoring every moment.  More on that later.

I love you:

I love you:

My favorite person on my favorite reality show.

I'm totally obsessed with you:

I'm losing sleep over the Olympics.  I cry at every personal interest athlete piece.  I cannot stop watching.  I wish the Olympics were every year.

Breakfast at Tiffany's

Can you believe it's taken me this long to see Breakfast at Tiffany's?  I'm embarrassed to admit it, but it's true.

Mr. DD is away for a week on a well-deserved, fancy-pants ski trip in Telluride.  That means I'm home alone and left to my own devices.  My days have been full of working and studying, but my nights have been completely my own.  My husband is away quite a bit, so I've learned to take advantage of the times when I'm flying solo.  I drink white wine over ice, eat Lean Cuisine's on the sofa, leave dishes in the sink, watch sappy movies in bed, hog the covers, and catch up on my self-tanning.  All the things Mr. DD hasn't got much patience for...

I've gotten very good at arranging our Netflix queue according to his trips.  This trip it was time for Breakfast at Tiffany's.  Truthfully, I found the storyline kind of trite and predictable and the male actor (I don't even know his name), bored me to tears... but Audrey... I fell completely in love with all 90 pounds of her.  The hair, the costumes, the props.  Love, love, love.

Long before Sarah Palin got her mitts on this look, Audrey perfected it.
I hate a cigarette, but her props were undeniably fabulous.

I find it hard to believe that she ever ate a donut in her life.

 I always thought I was too old for pigtails, but if Audrey can do it...


For $24.95 this sleep mask can be yours.   A measly $5.99 and you can have the earplugs too!
