Swamp Thing

Swamp Thing

It's been so damn hot and sticky here, it's disgusting. Though it kind of lends itself to B and I watching lots and lots of True Blood. Do any of you guys watch that show? K lent us the dvd with the first two episodes and now we've Netflixed them all and can't watch anything else. I love how vampire shows and movies always seem to be based in Louisiana. If ever there were a place for the undead to exist in normal society, it is most certainly Louisiana.

Anyway, as for living things, such as myself, I wore this out and about Sunday. Checked out Meeps and got these sweet new shades for $14 . Definitely check out their phenomenal selection if you're in the DC area.

B and I finally made it to Ray's the Steaks this weekend, too. Soooo delicious. The bacon and sauerkraut and steak tartare deviled eggs were just sinful. Of course our steaks were incredible, but most importantly, there was a great selection of good, affordable wines. That is key in my book.

  1. shades are awesome. Entourage is better than True Blood though. And, for new fun on HBO, you must check out Hung. Slightly cheesy, but it's enough to make me coming back...

  40. I love that blouse! It looks fabulous on you!

  41. I freaking love those shorts! I don't know what it is about them, but I love them!

    P.S. About the waver thing, it looks similar to how your hair would look if you braided your hair when it's wet and let them dry before shaking them loose. the only difference is you have more control over it, and it looks better if you have layers so the ends aren't straight randomly on your layers. So if you're thinking about getting one, try braiding your hair first then see how you like that:)

  43. The first season of True Blood I was HOOKED! I can watch over and over "on demand" This season right now, is getting weird.....I'm wondering if they changed writers.

    Have you ever seen Moonlight? That's another vampire series that SyFy (scifi)has been running on Friday nights.
