For Your Consideration

Dear readers, I so rarely make suggestions as to how you should live your life.

Except that if it doesn’t include Bare Escentuals makeup and Brookstone nap socks and La Mer body creme and Real Simple magazine and Crate and Barrel sea salt caramels and Cakebread chardonnay and Big Sexy shampoo (yes, despite the awful name) then what kind of life is it, really?

Anyway, now I’m recommending a person to you. Go read my (real life) friend Kate’s blog. It’s sharp, funny, and sure to be a hit at Sundance. You will thank me.

Still need convincing?

Bored back home over Christmas, homegirl entered a gingerbread house contest, and then toiled away to contribute a gingerchurch. And won! A poignant comment on cultural pandering and the stunning naivete of Southern Bible thumpers. Also: edible!

    That’s awesome! We made our first ever gingerbread house last year with our son. So fun! But not as easy as it looks, that’s for sure…

    Are you Kate’s new pimp? You’re preaching to the choir here – I read her blog, and I even know her in real life. So there. And I agree, she is awesome.

    Jess and Noelle, I know, I loved the story and picture too.

    3c, I haven’t made one for years, I’m long overdue.

    Courtney, what’s she like in real life?

    I’m blushing! Stop it y’all. Red, you’re awesome for doing this without me even asking. Shit, do I have to do something randomly nice for someone now? Cause that doesn’t happen very naturally.
