When Modcloth contacted me a couple of weeks ago and offered to send me a dress to style because Elizabeth was "crushin' on my blog," it was the equivalent of receiving a valentine from the cute boy in middle school math class (ohhh middle school--so much unrequited love). I have been reading Delightfully Tacky since I first discovered style blogging, and it has been one of my favorites from the beginning. Elizabeth just seems like such a cool girl, and she has such profound insights on blogging (and life in general) that reading her blog is always a treat. I've always identified with her Alaskan roots, because even though Vermont is nowhere near as northern it's still a frigid winter wonderland for five months out of the year, and I looked on with envy when she took her wanderlust on the road with that epic Brave trip. I'm excited to see how she styles her "Gardening a Lot of Attention" dress, and I can emphatically say that the crush is reciprocal!

In other news, I had a great weekend! K was working both Friday and Saturday nights so I had the apartment (and DVD player) all to myself. I watched several movies, finished "The Sun Also Rises" (which I'd never read before--a travesty, right??), and wrote 2,000 words. It was all very lovely. I spent Sunday cleaning like a madwoman, doing some last minute grocery shopping, and preparing guacamole and mushroom-caramelized onion-goat cheese quesadillas for our Superbowl party that night. I sort of arbitrarily decided to root for the NY Giants (because everyone always roots for the Patriots around here), and was so excited when they won! It was great fun with good friends, and we sure had ourselves a feast:
Also, can I just say: Madonna's half-time show was amazing. She's still got it, folks!
