As I was watching an episode of "Nigella Bites" the other night, I was totally struck by the appearance of Nigella. She had long stringy hair, parted in the middle, a not quite so beautiful complexion and nose that appeared much larger than what she has now in more recent shows. This particular episode was many years old, I presume. I wasn't even sure at the time it was her. I found this older photo of her and it is very much like what she looked like on the old program.
I'm thinking some polishing was done over the last few years. That being said I think she is a beautiful woman. I may even have a little girly crush on her. I think she exudes sensuality with that mix of domesticity that is charming and at the same time nonthreatening.
But that is just my opinion ;)

I know, I know, I could be a bit more inventive than the jug of flowers. But I did some cleanup yesterday for a little get together for the two oldest birthdays (bad mum, 3 weeks and 6 weeks late) and I just thought they looked pretty. And quite frankly, the tidiest area in the whole house.
Things have been so busy and chaotic around here. Loads and loads of laundry (3 or 4 full loads per day), appointments, shopping well you all know the routine, right?

We are still doing tours of schools. The above picture are the dorms at Renssaeler (I will get the correct spelling of this one day). What a lovely campus. Just not sure about the surrounding area. Our first introduction to the city was a transvestite in a purple dress, running shoes and soccer socks at the gas station. Hmmm...

This is Quinnipiac. I did not go with her to this one. She went on an official visit there on the weekend. She is in loooooooove with this one.

And Clarkson. Beautiful, scenic campus. Gorgeous rink (yes, rinks can be gorgeous to hockey players). And did I mention it is only 5 hours from Mummy?

Guess which one I am loving so far ;)

The Girl in the Cafe

I watched this movie on Saturday.
I think Kelly MacDonald is so beautiful.

What a great movie. If you get a chance, watch it.

Liberty At Pottery Barn

Did we know Liberty of London was at Pottery Barn for Kids?
I obviously need to get in the loop!
Still travelling...
