Been watching Law & Order: SVU like it’s my job and I have a crush on NICK AMARO like it’s my job. We’ve been snowed in and it’s been so cold so cold, I’ve been knitting the Purl Bee baby blanket for a friend’s coming-soon baby boy and marathoning SVU and now I’ve moved on to taking pictures of Amaro’s street clothes and dress shirt cuffs b/c I’m me. I also bought a blazer for the first time in 20 years. I’m sure this has to do with Rollins and Benson. I LOVE THE CLOTHES and the women are the best. The other day I ordered a pair of earrings from Etsy and two days later I saw them on a hooker on SVU so I know I’m living life right. ALSO I’ve been listening to a LOT of One Direction b/c I love everysingle 1D song I’ve ever heard. Just sayin.

BRO COUNTRY & TINY LITTLES

MVPHONE

Look, let’s get it out of the way. I love country music, even bro country. Unabashedly. I’ve written about my love of country music before. And now there’s this guy called Sam Hunt and he used to play football in college and he makes cozy music that makes me want to get in my car and stop at Starbucks for a big Christmassy red cup of something warm with lots of whipped cream on top, climb the ramp to the expressway and drive and drive and drive and listen and listen and listen. You can watch Who is Sam Hunt? if you haven’t stopped reading already and like adorable things.

My first episode of LINE DRIVE is up @ REAL PANTS! It’s about bro country b/c YES. My slot is 10 AM MONDAY MORNINGS. New stuffs, every week. Yes yes. xx
