I said I’d poke my head in to say hello. Bonjour.
Just a quick note today, to say thank you all for all of your kind messages on my post last week. I am overwhelmed by your words of encouragement and your empathy. To say that I’m grateful is an understatement. And to each of you who shared your stories of loss, I also extend my heartfelt condolences.
To Anonymous on March 2, 2012 at 3:36 PM who shared that lovely poem, thank you. I’ve printed it out and it’s on my wall at work...
Many, many thanks.
I have an outfit to share. It’s March, which means birthday discount time at Anthropologie. Woo! It’s not actually my birthday yet, but I was watching stock on this dress online (man…Anthro’s new site format has made it more difficult to do that, eh?), and I could see stock was dwindling so I had to move fast. I think I got the last Small.
…you didn’t expect me to wait until my birthday to wear it, did you?

Yeah, that’s me at Honda Center after last night’s Ducks game against the Edmonton Oilers. I’m giddy because we won. And because a bunch of milestones were reached...Teemu Selanne tied Jari Kurri in the NHL's leading scorer list, Corey Perry scored his 200th and 201st career goals, etc.
I’m standing in front of the Corey Perry Hart Memorial Trophy/Rocket Richard Trophy display we’ve set up for the season as a tribute to his MVP-worthy-league-leading-goal-scorer season that he had last year. I decided it was just as good a place as any to take an “oh-oh-tee-dee” pic.
And yes, there’s a band-aid on my knee. Last Friday when the Ducks played the Calgary Flames, it looked like the game was headed for overtime when our captain Ryan Getzlaf scored the game-winning goal with 46 seconds left in regulation. I was so excited that I leaped out of my seat and fell. I’ve got a few scrapes on my right leg as well as a nasty bruise on my right thigh.
I’ve nicknamed my bruise “Ryan Getzlaf” in his honor. It’s fine.
Anyway, I love this dress. Is it a smart purchase? Probably not. It’s $178 at full price, the material is a little thin, it has unfinished hems so it frays a little. And I’ve read several reviews online that say the material is also prone to pilling.
I love it anyway. I never said I was smart.
I’ve noted (with extreme glee) that Rosa of Love at First Shop and my size twin Sara of You, Me & Anthropologie have been attending hockey games recently. I wholeheartedly approve. So here’s my plug, friends: watch hockey. It’s a great sport. And if the excitement of the game isn't enough and you need further convincing, here:
