Grape Crush is My Favorite...

... But I've got some other major crushes developing at the moment. Care to read about em?

1. the Clothesline. One of the big selling points of this house was the fact that it came with built-in poles for a clothesline in the backyard. A few weeks ago, Patrick helped me put together the line part, and I believe it to be very cute indeed.


2. Our ever-growing VHS collection. Lately there has been a resurgence of VHS tape collecting in my house. I always see so many amazing movies at the local thrift stores and finally decided to give in and start buying the ones I am dying to see/see again. Here are some of the more recent gems.

Kentucky Fried Movie
Field of Dreams
Dark city
My Dinner With Andre
Freaky Friday
Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure
SNL Best of Eddie Murphy
The Talented Mr. Ripley
Housesitter (total guilty pleasure. don't knock it til you try it.)
Back to the Future II
Foul Play
Krush Groove
The Jerk
Tikki Tikki Tavi
Cher Fitness [A New Attitude]

Annie Hall
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
the Dark Crystal
Desperately Seeking Susan
Romancing the Stone
The Spy Who Loved Me
The Man With the Golden Gun
Live and Let Die
The Little Prince
Son of Godzilla
The Secret of Nimh
Raiders of the Lost Arc
Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
The Wall
Strange Brew

3. The Avocado Seeds - After preparing the delicious avocado enchiladas I gushed over the other day, I decided to try an experiment I saw in Plant Parenthood where you stick a few toothpicks into an avocado seed, set it in a cup of water, and wait for it to sprout. Reminds me of the time we germinated lima beans in the 2nd grade. If you play your cards right, you might just be the recipient of one of these little babies when they are big enough to pot. :D

4. Leucocoprinus birnbaumii (aka the mushrooms growing in one of my house plants.) I noticed these popped up after the move. Google tells me they are harmless and nearly impossible to get rid of, so I'm just going to let them grow for now. Aren't they weird? 
Don't get too close! RAWR!!
5.  Last but not least: The Little Family Patrick, Sam and Prince are the sweetest.
Sam Loves the Jerk


  1. I have a crush on you and your VHS collection! I think we're overdue for a movie night. I'm just sayin...

  2. Sam watching the Jerk is the best.
