Coffee Talk

discuss amongst ya-selves.... 

gotta kick it off with the most important news of the week
Nicole Richie got some boobs

why Nicole why?? You are so cute and petite? 
You always acted like you didn't care about boobs? 
be proud of your small knockers!! 
am I making it obvious that I am the president of the itty-bitty committee? 
in all honesty they do look pretty damn good in that pic... 

Am I loser for really wanting to see What's Your Number?
I think it looks funny but with plenty of chick-flick cheesy moments to love.
On the radio this week they revealed that the "ideal" number is 6 according to a survey.... Anna says she slept with 5 before marrying her husband (and What's Your Number costar).
Good Anna... you aren't a ho... but I still say keep the numbers to yourself! No matter what the answer, I never want to know! 

Wait... I take that back... if you are a slutty girlfriend of mine and have hilarious stories I would want to know.... 

Ashton & Demi... are you together? Are you not?
What's the final verdict? 

More importantly.... when are you going to cut your hair and shave and go back to being Hot-as-Hell Ashton again??? PLEASE!!??? 

David Arquette has moved on from Courtney Cox... 

with an Entertainment Tonight reporter. 
She's a former Girls Gone Wild and ex of Joe Francis.... 
need I say more??? 
Didn't think so.

Is anyone else as in love with New Girl and Whitney as I am???? 

Also heard Panam is great .... haven't gotten around to seeing it just yet! 

Have you seen the commercials during Project Runway for Molly Sims new show Project Accessory?!?! 
(She also just got married and is currently honeymooning!)

She is a jewelry designer (slash model slash actress) and the show will premiere in November! 

Happy FRIDAY!!! What are everyones fun weekend plans? 
I have so much work to do it's not even funny... but I am hoping to get some fall baking done too! Maybe something with pumpkin and cream cheese frosting?

Wishlist Wednesday

First of all, a big thanks to Sarah from Walking around Where the Sidewalk Begins.
I won her Tibi top giveaway and couldn't be happier :) 

My wishing came true ... which is great because my wish for more money has not! 

I never thought I would be saying this, but have you seen Lily Pulitzer's fall arrivals??  This summer I fell in love with her white lace cocktail dresses, and now I am surprisingly liking a ton of their new fall items too!  Who knew?? 

printed dress - perfect transition with boots.... 

the perfect navy sweater coat.... 

navy lace dress ... I'm not letting go of my lace dress obsession
silk tops in a bunch of colors



What are your thoughts?? Still to preppy or just right?!

Rainy Monday....

Nothing puts me in a better mood on a Monday morning 
than cold weather and rain.
How about you? 

I'm off to conquer this nasty Monday, but here are some monogrammed rain boots I came across that would be perfect for a day like today!



I like the idea... but maybe if it were a smaller, more subtle monogram I'd be a bigger fan?

College Reunion


Praise the Lord! Friday has arrived!! 

One of my college friends is in town for the weekend - so a mini college reunion is ensuing and it couldn't have come at a better time!! 
the idiot at last years reunion

Cocktails, shopping, and laughing my ass off at everything that comes out of her mouth are my only plans for the weekend! 
Oh... and some beer bongs.  We did A LOT of beer bonging in college.  And no, we aren't afraid to admit it. 

what am i wearing???


First up.... off to catch up on so many missed shows on the DVR!
Bethenny Frankel's True Hollywood Story is definitely first on my list! 
I did catch New Girl and loved it! Anyone else see it this week? 

Have a great weekend :)

Ooey Gooey Bars

In my opinion, there is no better way to turn a crappy day around than stuffing your face with delicious food.  I prefer a cheeseburger and fries, but my boyfriend prefers sweets over my carb-craziness.  He just started grad school on top of work, so we don't get to spend as much time together anymore as we used to, and this week seemed to be a particularly stressful one for both of us.

The perfect way to fill the void: getting fat on Gooey Butter Cake
*I prefer to call it ooey gooey bars because it's more 
embarrassing for my boyfriend to say :) 
(my pictures were awful... these are all from How Sweet It Is).

I found this recipe from How Sweet It is, one of my favorite cooking blogs for the food but more so because she is HILARIOUS, and immediately knew this would be the perfect comforting treat to surprise him with.  I had made Paula Deen's Ooey Gooey butter bars before, and this recipe is very similar. 

It's SO easy and seriously so rich and delicious.  

  • FOR THE CRUST:
  • 1 package (18.25 Oz. Box) Plain Yellow Cake Mix
  • 1 stick Unsalted Butter, melted
  • 1 whole Egg
  • _____
  • FOR THE FILLING:
  • 8 ounces, weight Cream Cheese, At Room Temperature
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 stick Unsalted Butter, melted
  • 3-¾ cups Confectioner's Sugar

Preheat oven to 350°. Prepare crust first. In a large mixing bowl, combine the crust ingredients with a wooden spoon until moist. Transfer to a 13″x9″ ungreased baking pan and spread evenly over the bottom of the pan. Set aside.
Next, prepare the filling. In a large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese with an electric mixer until fluffy. Add the eggs, vanilla, and melted butter, and continue to mix. Next, add the confectioner’s sugar one cup at a time until all sugar is mixed in. Pour filling over the crust, and spread evenly with a spatula.
Bake gooey butter cake for 40-45 minutes until it is browned, but the center is still jiggles when the pan is shaken. Cool for 30 minutes. Sprinkle with additional confectioner’s sugar and serve.

When you cut them into squares they will look messy.... 
but TRUST ME they taste SO good.  
My boyfriend definitely enjoyed the surprise waiting for him at his apartment when he got home!!
 And unfortunately, I enjoyed the portion I kept for myself a little too much that I have no more ooey gooeyness remaining.
Whoops.

Real Housewives Gossip

I don't know if any of you caught last night's Entertainment Tonight, but they are doing a two part interview with Taylor about Russel's abuse.


Last night was part I and it was really sad and terrible.  It made her behavior on Monday's RHOBH make so much more sense. 

There is a small clip here and part II will air tonight on ET.

Also in Beverly Hills news, Camille apparently has a new boyfriend.

She isn't saying much so far... just that he is a normal guy and that they have been dating for a couple of months.  Wouldn't surprise me if it was her friends husband she was constantly lip locking with all last season.  I want smug and bitchy Camille back... she's been wayyyy to tame in these first episodes.

Victoria had told me last week about Jill, Kelly, Alex, and Cindy leaving the RHONY.

To that I say, ADIOS.  Ever since Bethenny left that show has never been as good, and especially not as funny.  I do wonder who the replacements will be though!?!?
And I definitely will miss this... 
Alex's faces + creepy "I'm not gay" Simon did give the show some comedic relief.

And speaking of Bethenny, look how big and cute Brynn is now

So much blonde hair!! I think she looks just like Jason. 

Happy hump day.

September

Most people get all excited about September for the changing of leaves, sweaters + boots, the amazingly huge fashion magazines.....

and while that is great and all.... it pales in comparison to the REAL reason why September is amazing.

TV IS BACK.
Praise the Lord! 

There are so many great new shows 
this year that I can't wait to check out: 

Whitney


The Playboy Club


New Girl 


Hart of Dixie 
who doesn't want to watch adorable Rachel Bilson? It'll be like Summer & The OC all over again. 

Pan Am 




And of course, the return of some favorites as well: 

How I Met Your Mother


Desperate Housewives 


Glee


Gossip Girl 


Modern Family


Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen
Yes... this counts as a TV show.

And then of course... the current ones we all love to watch: 

The Rachel Zoe Project

Top Chef: Just Desserts

Project Runway

Giuliana and Bill

Most Eligible Dallas

The only question is - how am I going to fit everything on my DVR?!?

What shows are you looking forward to watching this fall?
