I love her.
{Possibly Part One}

Saturday, July 18, 2009

I just love all the blogs out there... Simply love them. Granted, I haven't been as good at commenting as I once was, only because my life has gone a little batty since I made the big move to sweaty, sweaty, I-can't-believe-it's-so-freaking-hot Sin City, but that doesn't lessen my love for my favorite gals and their blogs.

Just to name a few of my daily must-reads...


{These are just a few. I subscribe to many, many more and love each of them. The blogs I've listed were, if you will, my first loves in the blogosphere.}

Moving on to the twins...


Gabby at gabby, she wrote was my first blog crush. She's just so, so fall-off-your-chair-laughing funny. Oh, and her unbeweavable sister Lizzy Marie? Um, I told her the other day on the phone, "You're pretty much my new best friend." (Don't worry, Carina.) Then I laughed hysterically, which probably and hopefully made it less stalker-ish, because we've never actually met. One of these days soon, I'm making a twin sandwich when they come visit me. We're going to paint each other's nails and float around the best pools in Vegas while slightly, or less than slightly, inebriated from too many frozen, fancy drinks. Can't. effing. wait. (Here's hoping they don't turn out to be totally crazy... Or here's hoping they do!)

Okay, okay... It is now time for our feature presentation: I love her.

Yep, you know her, you love her. It's the one and only Jasmine over at the incomparable An Experiment in Poverty. This post is really dedicated to my love for Jasmine. She's just, well, happiness. She simply exudes it and, honestly, I can't get enough. Her blog makes me smile every day and I'm just in love with her attitude, her easy ability to share love and her kindness. We email from time to time and I've turned to her when I needed love advice, her roasted broccoli recipe and help buying a swimsuit.

After seeing this f-ing fabulous photo, I immediately asked her where she got this suit and ordered one for myself. It arrived this week. Hooray! I can't promise that I look as adorable as she does, but I can promise that it's pretty darn cute.

More than anything, when you read Jasmine's words, you just feel like you know her. You get the sense that she's the long lost best friend you've never met. You also just know, can just tell immediately, that she's a really, really good person.

So, there you have it. I love her. I know you already do, but go and read An Experiment in Poverty anyway.

Oh, and she had me at "true love lives on lollipops and crepes." If that's not a fantastic sentence, I don't know what is.

  5. I love her too! And I'm so jealous that you have that fabulous swimsuit now too! (Happy for you, yes, but just a wee bit jealz.) You and Jasmine are two of my daily "must read" blogs. 'Tis my goal to have a blog just as readable one day. (Presumably once the little storm cloud has passed from over my head and thus, my blog.) This is a really sweet post.
