i love magazines
oh how i love magazines
they are the reason i love design
they are the reason i know celebrity gossip
(okay granted I was out of the loop for a few weeks
so much so that brian casually said to me one day
'did britney get in trouble for her kid not being in a car seat?'
'what?' i said
'you don't know about that? wow, even i knew about that...' see? have some kids
& the random-facts-about-celebrities part of your brain vanishes:)
back to magazines....
they are the reason i haven't read a book for my book club in 3 months
(oh but i still go to the meetings
just for the adult conversation without toddlers quotient)
they are the reason i know that sarah jessica parker wore a $4,000 dress to p.diddy's party...
they are the reason i still haven't put pictures up in our living room
(too many good ideas)...
they are the reason i know that if merra's poop is blue I should call the doctor...
they are the reason i know the best mascara to buy ...
they are the reason i know that stitching on scrapbook pages is big right now ...
they are the reason i know that
if we ever have a pool in our back yard
there is a really cute floaty chair at crate & barrel
that also has matching place mats...
they are the reason i know that you shouldn't wear horizontal striped pants...
where would I be without them?
(reading my book club book I suppose)
so thank you to the publishers of
US & people
Creating keepsakes, simple scrapbooks, scrapbooks etc & scrapbook answers
In style & lucky
Home companion, cottage living, country home, blueprint & domino
time & newsweek
parents, parenting, child & American baby

you make my walk to the mail box
& my solo outings to barnes & noble
wonderful trips indeed...
