I realized that it has been awhile since Bobby made an appearance on the blog, after I got a few concerned emails and tweets about the state of our relationship. With all of my talk of moving to a new apartment, I guess some of you thought we split up - but we made the move together, hooray! I post a lot of pictures of him on instagram, so next time you're worried, you can just stalk my feed. Then again, I share way too much of my personal life on here, so you would probably know before my facebook status even changed. I'd write a post about the trials and tribulations of determining kitty cat custody, etc. It's that LiveJournal state of mind; I come from a generation of oversharing.

These photos are actually a couple weeks old - the weather has warmed up a bit and Bobby has since ruined the shirt I was wearing. He makes a hobby out of washing and shrinking clothing that is clearly labeled "dry clean only" which works out well for Miku when a sweater is involved, but is all too stressful for Bobby when I'm throwing daggers at him as consequence. I did get the top seriously on sale and since it was oversized, I'm pretty sure I can still wear it. But if he shrinks or loses one more thing, you guys might be reading that aforementioned post about kitty custody. I kid, Bobby, I kid! (But I'm watching you. Leave my laundry alone!)




p.s. I filmed ten makeup videos over the last two Mondays, so I had to give my eyes and skin a little break from Makeup Monday, this week. But even though there isn't a tutorial, I have a special Makeup Monday giveaway coming up after this post!

  6. What a beautiful skirt! Those prints always remind me of Mary Poppins's gorgeous carpet bag, in the best way of course. By the way I completely know what you mean about the livejournal generation-- I grew up with xanga (it's less cool cousin) and believe me, was there oversharing on that site! :)

  15. These neutral colors are so pretty. Boys have such a reputation for screwing up clothes. And it's true. I'm sorry to perpetuate the stereo type, but man, it is so hard not to!

  31. poor men, they try don't they?

    question for you (or perhaps for bobby...) Q-how do you kiss him with all that lip stick on? i always admire your colorful lipstick, but i personally don't kiss my hubby when i'm wearing lipstick (which is pretty rare). with tinted chap sticks, i don't feel so silly smooching. do you sleep with lipstick on? (i kid, i kid!)

    ReplyDelete
  32. You and Bobby are really too cute together. I'm sorry to hear about your blouse....hopefully, you can still wear it.

    ReplyDelete

  42. Uhg, Dave does the same thing. Part of me is like "Oh, it's so nice to have a boyfriend who will clean my clothes randomly!" and then the other part of me is like "You shrunk my red wool Anthropologie sweater...ARGH!" and then I cried.
    Cat custody = me. I already lost 1 cat in a break up, I'm not losing another.
    I love your black and gold bracelets.

  43. I am thinking of creating a sew in clothing tag that says DO NOT DRY ME IN A DRYER, I AM A DRIP DRY KIND OF GAL. I think of all the pieces of clothes it would have salvaged from the clutches of the unknowing but well intentioned.

    ReplyDelete
  44. oh man, boys and laundry... I don't even know where to start! I am so picky about what gets washed on hot vs cold, what gets dried by air vs in the dryer and everything else... good luck with your move together!
