Pregnant Pause

(via loseyoursel-f, rebelqueen-)

This is too hysterical not to share. Last night, Robert and I went to Theo’s with my mom and her beau. The evening was nice but after we left, I realized I’d forgotten my cell phone. I freaked. I called mom to see if she was still there. She wasn’t. I called the bar and luckily they had it. I drove back to retrieve my precious iPhone. The bartender even asked me a security question (what is your background picture?) to make sure it didn’t fall into the wrong hands. I greatly appreciated that…

I got back into the car, beloved phone in hand. I opened my text messages. I gaped in horror. Whomever found my phone and graciously turned it in, had also pulled a little prank…

I immediately called my mom. She had been duped! I had to talk her OFF THE LEDGE. I even had to convince her that  I really didn’t send “the text”. Apparently, she didn’t put two and two together when I told her I thought I lost my phone…only minutes before she got “the text”. In shock, she showed “the text” to her man-friend and they proceeded to have a conversation about it. It went something like this:

“Is this for real?”, she gasped.

“It isn’t something she would joke about, right?”, he answered.

“Why would she send that to me in a text,” she wondered.

“She’s probably embarrassed and scared,” he replied.

“All we can do now is celebrate and be happy for her,” he suggested.

“This is such shock,” she mused.

Well, much to her relief and to the stranger’s presumed glee…it was all a pregnant prank. I have to admit, it was a pretty ballsy/hilarious thing to do…to someone else of course.

A few lovely things

I have been inundated with new and intriguing things all day today! I am so excited to share…

A yummy new sushi place in Fayetteville: Meiji. Their spicy crab salad ($5) changed my life today! They use only fresh ingredients – mostly local – and are very reasonable!

Adorable pieces from Maude Shoppe, most under $100!

A very cute new blog: Harper and Harley

A really exciting workout recommendation. The Brazilian Butt Lift. It’s by the same people as P90x. Apparently the models use it to get in shape before runway shows. Is this worth trying?

Two SUPER cute guides to NOLA. I love them because they are recommending places that are actually great. I know because I’ve been to them! The Perty South and The Comeback Kid. Seriously, who doesn’t love New Orleans?

Hot Mess: Danielle Staub

Sometimes it’s embarrassing to admit you watch the “Real Housewives” from anywhere, but most of the time it’s one hilarious hot mess after another. Andy Cohen has become one of my favorite people and I find it difficult to miss Watch What Happens Live. Last night, I was more impressed by his view of Sag Harbor than anything! However, the hottest-trainwreck-tranny-mess was Danielle Staub and her lesbian love song. Watch what happens…Andy’s reactions are priceless.

Sorry I’ve been terrible about posting consistently. A lot has been going on. I intend to rectify it!

Do you have any thoughts on Danielle?

Upped the Ante: Monique Lhuillier Resort 2011

Last week, I wrote an open letter to Jason Wu. I was enchanted by his Resort 2011 collection (and still am) but he has been surpassed. Monique Lhuillier. There’s really nothing more to say. Enjoy for yourselves. Feast your eyes. I literally want every. single. look…including the shoes!
