Things I love:

September 1, 2009






And tonight, “things I love” also means “things I will soon be enjoying.” For cheap! YAY!


ConGRADulations Coco!

You won’t lag behind, because you’ll have the speed.
You’ll pass the whole gang and you’ll soon take the lead.
Wherever you fly, you’ll be the best of the best.
Wherever you go, you will top all the rest.


And will you succeed?

Yes! You will indeed!

(98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed.)

 A thousand thousand apologies for our heinous lack of posting lately. As we stressed and procrastinated at school a month ago, we fully expected to have endless time on our hands for copious blog posting during the summer. Sadly, work and exercise and family have intervened for the time being. We’re hoping to get accustomed to the routine and regain our former boredom very soon, so stay tuned.


For now, we have the most fantastically life-changing thing to show you. Ladies and gentlemen (ok, sorry gentlemen, this one’s not for you– but hey, we bill ourselves as meninas, so you shouldn’t be too surprised), we give you…. *drumroll* is a site devoted to finding women the best possible sizes for bras and jeans. They put you through a 3-minute survey, and voila! Up to 50 amazing selections, priced reasonably and available both online and in stores.


Go now, do a quiz, and just see what it comes up with for you. Even if you’re not in a position to buy (more budget advice coming soon, promise!), Zafu will give you a better idea of what to look for when you’re flush enough to justify a much-needed bra or pair of jeans.


See, they’re adorable! What are you waiting for, go!!

oh bother

Michelle Obama was spotted at Good Stuff Eatery today!



For the most part, I think this is awesome.




a) Spike, the owner and former Top Chef contestant, is Canadian and really nice. His restaurant definitely deserves the publicity (not that he needs it).




b) We get to ogle more adorable Michelle outfits. I’m sure grey capris and a ponytail will be the outfit of the summer.




c) The Obamas have seriously re-energized this city. Everyone seems happier and more peppy (though that could be the Friday afternoon long lunch with beers). It’s just so nice to know that this family, who technically have no ties to Washington except that they happen to have had to move here, are so committed to supporting the schools, the charities, the businesses, and the people. After the barely-there Bushes, believe me, it’s refreshing.




d) The food at Good Stuff Eatery is phenomenal. They have big, juicy burgers with just the right touch of gourmet, to-die-for fries, delicious milkshakes, sweet little cookies, and an interesting selection of local microbrews. The First Lady clearly has great taste!




The downside?

My coworkers and I were passing by Spike’s restaurant yesterday, and we remarked that we should go back to Good Stuff soon because it was soooo good the last time we went. Now there is exactly zero chance that we’ll even be able to get within two feet of the place for the rest of the summer. It is the new Ben’s Chili Bowl.

Obamas never strike twice, people! Tourists, try to pick other random restaurants in the hopes that the dazzling First Couple go there next! Just stay away from my BURGERS!!



my momma’s a star!!

We both loooooove our Moms, and we both love Postcards From Yo Momma.

So you can imagine our excitement when we saw that Coco’s mom’s hilarity made it onto the site!

dad's fun buttonYet another reason why Pepper ties for Coolest Mother of the Year– the other being Rose, of course!

(Oh, and as for Coco’s dearest dad… they’re on one of his business trips right now, so he’s in serious work mode most of the time. In this case, it took 4 days for him to give in and start being silly.)

Tell us why your mom rocks!
