A Sneak Peak ...

Tomorrow, I'll be in Hawaii.

Tomorrow.

I'm frantic with all the packing and prep-ing the house today. I'm feeling a little like a crazy person actually.

Anywho, since I'll be radio silent for the next 14 days. I thought I'd give you a sneak peak at what to expect when I get back.

Maybe you've heard me mention a Scrappy B!tch...?






And if you had a crush on Skye, you may have some warm feelings for these two B!tches...




Now you all be good while I'm gone...

Spring/Hawaii/Books?etc...

It feels like spring today.

April is almost over and it's only just starting to feel like spring. That almost never happens here.

It's hard to believe that it's almost May and I still need to have my fireplace going all the time to keep the chill out of the house.

Maybe that's why I'm bailing to Hawaii in less than two weeks... no that's not why ( I mean, didn't I just say that it's starting to feel like spring?), but I am, did you know?

My SIL, aka: Beastie... eh-hem, I mean bestie... of 17 years and I are going on a 13 day Hawaiian cruise to celebrate our 30th birthdays. Our birthdays are actually months away, but you know, it's the sentiment...

It's getting to be crunch time. I'm trying to be uber prepared, as always. I'm neck deep in lists. Lists and lists and lists and list of my lists....

And I'm looking for good books to read.



We only actually spend 5 days on the islands and then the rest of the days we'll be cruising back across the ocean home, so I'm thinking I need books. I've gotten Tina Fey's Bossy Pants already, but I need a good fiction book too. Any recommendations?

B!tch Bag: Skye

Meet Skye.

Who ever said that B!tch and Stupid don't go hand in hand?

Skye buys 95% of her wardrobe from vintage boutiques. Which, you know, is fine, but here's the thing, she refuses to shop in thrift stores, because she doesn't want to wear other peoples old things....

Yeah, exactly... genius.

She's a self proclaimed "Boho Hippy", (you didn't think her parents gave her the name Skye did you? No,  she chose her own "flowing" name. *eye roll*) that practices "free love". That's why she slept with your boyfriend, and everyone else's, thus starting a Crabs epidemic in your area.

Thanks for the Crabs Skye, you stupid b!tch!





She won't be passing along free love anymore though, because now she's just a B!tch Bag, waiting to be your B!tch.


Skye is a 7x6.5" Saddle/Messenger bag made from a vintage leather jacket.

Her flap has a magnetic snap to keep all your things tucked safely inside and she has one internal pocket the perfect size for your phone or mp3 player.

She's fully lined with 100% cotton, double stitched for durability and her strap easily converts from a Shoulder, to an Over the Shoulder, Strap.

Flush...

Hey, remember us? Sooo, maybe we haven't been around much, or like, at all, but you know what? Here we are! Yay! And guess what... we're miserable... yup. You know why? Today is Day 1 of a cleanse for us, that's why.

That means no tea... no coffee... in fact, no solid food either... for a week.

Do you know what we do get? A gallon of salt water, every morning. A salt water flush... flush is the key word. Have you have done a salt water flush? Well, we'd recommend it, for entertainment factor... well, it's entertaining if you enjoy poo... which we do (that rhymed, did-ja like it?).

The Master Cleanse. It's brutal. But it's what we do. For the next week, you might not want to talk to us... or make eye contact. Just sayin'

No, just kidding (sort of), a giveaway is coming up, from our lovely friend Sam from Loka! So stay tuned...
