I realised that I hadn’t actually made any announcements online about our news..! O_O;; xD
On the fifteenth of June, after I’d had a conversation with Bec about how we’d been planning on buying me a ‘test’ engagement ring to see if I would even WEAR one – she excitedly ran off and looked through her fashion ring collection and pulled out two rings she thought would fit me for me to borrow and test out.
Later that night while we were hiding from the cold in bed, I showed Greg, and he put them both on my finger. But! He decided that that wasn’t right, demanded I take them both off and after a whole mess of awesome face mashing: He asked me to marry him.
We’d previously discussed that we wouldn’t do “The Question” and when we found “The Ring” we’d just be engaged. But I had no idea that I really DID want to be asked so much until he actually asked me.
Needless to say, I totally said yes, have been pretty DAMN excited about it every since, and I still get all lip and jaw wibbly and giddy just thinking about it. YAY ENGAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGED!!!!!!! :D
I wasn’t allowed to get too attached to this huge blue resin flower with its little diamante heart. But its too late, I love it.
Kitchenaid Artisan Mixers: Blueberry or Apple, that is the question
OKAY SO THIS LIST HAS LESS SUPER GORGEOUS THINGS ON IT THAT I WAS EXPECTING! It also has less quirky stuff on it than I was expecting. Apparently most of what I want is achingly practical. WHAT’S THAT ABOUT!? xD But still, the IDEA of a lot of these things has me salivating – especially as whenever I try and make anything on the Damn Daring Bakers Challenges, they always require me to use something that I don’t own so I dodgy up other things in their stead. xD I’d like to be less dodgy – or as a friend put it, ~~INNOVATIVE~~ – especially when it comes to using a stand mixer with all the delicious attachments.
The faithful and long serving electric hand beaters we have are on their last legs… Recently using it its motor started to kinda.. Burn… ^_^;;
We killed this, and I didn't even know what it was... xD

I have NEVER before heard of Kubrick Blythes, which is, as far as I’m concerned, CRAZY FACED as they’ve been around for the best part of a decade by all accounts. I’ve hung out on Blythe forums, scoured all sorts of photo resources for Blythes over the years, and I own ACTUAL Blythes. Well, not ones from the 70s, but you know what I mean.
HOW HAVE I NOT HEARD OF THEM!? And now that I have. DO. WANT! O_O;; I especially love the photoshoot of that second mosaic-ed blythe, the Zombie Kubrick Blythe, savaging poor Totoro. xD
Anthropologie has always been an evil and horrendous purveyour of too much pretty. Those bastards. And they’re at it again, this time making me pine for rugs that I cannot have – and now must actually learn how to properly make my own for my future pie-in-the-sky house. Perhaps thats what I’ll put on my rugs. Pie. In the sky.
Everyone likes pai. Raight?
But it did make me hunt out the delectable arts of Maxine Sutton and have me grabby handsing and pretty much everything – even things I have ZERO use for like the lavender spoons (or soons as the product id would have it xD). WHAT AM I GOING TO DO WITH THAT, I CAN’T EVEN SMELL LAVENDER. xD
Greg’s face: *goes all blank as if he’s on standby for a moment* Me: *wonders if her suspicions are true, and her partner’s clearly android self has powered down for a moment* Me: Huh. How does androgyny have anything to do with androids? Greg: Because of andro, meaning human… Well, actually I believe it means man. Me: *wonders even harder how android is even a word and tries to connect human with the id and come up with robot* But how does that have anything to do with androgyny, that’s like… Not a man. Greg: Yes, but that’s because of gyno, Me: You’re a gyno. Greg: NO. YOU!
♥ We’re off to the country for a week, so I’ll be largely offline again/still/stuff. HAVE A GOOD WEEK, EVERYONE!
Jenji comes through with the linkie goodness goods once again! Though this clip feels a little long, I COVET this as it would make baking so much easier! xD And could you imagine all the awesome decorating control you would have?! MAN! Screw hover cars and jetpacks, I wish the future had included this.
I have a little favour to ask anyone who would care to answer the call. We’re having a Western Themed event for Bec & Erik’s combined Hens & Bucks show. And. Well. We need music. xD
We don’t want to listen to terrifying Country & Western all night (though a few choice tracks will be peppered in I’m sure) but its actually hard to come up with stuff that’s good and STILL party atmosphere! xD
We’ve got the Deadwood soundtrack, umpteen versions of These Boots Were Made for Walking, some other Nancy Sinatra, a little Tom Waits but… Honestly? We can’t really just have that on repeat all night. xD
SO! Does anyone have any suggestions? Songs with v. wild west lyrics? Music that sounds like its straight out of the era? I’d LOVE to hear them! I’ve probably got much much more than I think in my collection (I’m sure I’ve got Will Smith kicking around here ;)) but anything even for a memory jog would be epics!
Edit: I asked Greg if he was going to suggest something TERRIFYING (he’s very into death metal and post metal) but he took one look at the post and announced that I “..need the Young Guns Soundtrack!” and MY GOD he’s right. Also some Zeppelin that would work perfectly. YAY!
THANKS IN ADVANCE, ARMS CALLER ANSWERER TYPE PEOPLES! :D
