*I am in love with peonies. Most. Beautiful. Flower. Ever. I want to plant them everywhere and look at them for hours. Love them.
*If I hear that "Hips Don't Lie" song one more time, I will reach into my head and yank out my eardrums as a form of preventative medicine.
*Since it's the summer and my attention span is nil unless I'm reading something fluffy, I picked up "The Devil Wears Prada" at the airport last week. Surprise--it was actually good. Then I borrowed the first two installments of the Shopaholic series from ElleCharlie. I wanted to throttle the main character after the first chapter. Lunchboy almost took the book away from me because I came very close to hurling it off the porch while screaming, "Get your life together, you twit!"
*There is nothing better than retreating to the nice, cool basement after hosting what felt like a never-ending BBQ for people who either didn't RSVP or showed up 4 hours late. I left the boys upstairs doing battle in Resident Evil 4 and fled to the the guest room, a frosty beverage in hand. Cats, book, Nilla wafers, first season of Veronica Mars on DVD---ah, blessed retreat.
