In case you were wondering...

I am totally jet lagged.  I've been up since 4:30 and I'm not going to be very productive today.

This morning I was trying to cure my boredom and cranky self by resorting to pinterest.  I'm currently trying to grow my hair out and was looking for cute ways to style it.  I think pinterest actually made me more cranky because my hair never looks like this....EVER!




  Anyone who has to deal with me today...I feel bad for you.

Weekend Recap

I woke up this morning with huge puffy bags under my eyes.  My nephew is fun and did I mention he is a cutie but man he wore me out.  I tried to teach him how to layout by the pool but he thought it was more fun to splash me and get my People magazine these days.  He woke me up at 7am saying tee tee which means choo choo (adult translation, it's Thomas the Train time).  Not gonna lie that show freaked me out...those trains make some weird faces.  Anyways, I got a little shopping in, tried the amazing Dorito Taco that I have been dreaming about for months and sweated my ass off at some CWS games.  Now I need to finish some laundry and start packing - I leave tomorrow to go back to London.  Not looking forward to a 14 hour travel day.

Here is my weekend through my iPhone

Fashion Friday

So I have been sweating buckets since I have arrived in Omaha.  I 'm finally tanning after looking like a tomato for the past couple of days.  My skin is in a little bit of shock right now.  I stocked up on some coconut water and evian face mist (I know you don't even need to say anything).  Here are a few things I brought with me to Omaha to beat the heat.

You can also check me out over at The Daily Tay.  It's my first ever guest blog post...get excited people!  

Enjoy your weekend!

Guest Blogger - Taylor

Drum roll's my first guest blogger. 
 She's funnier,cuter and younger....of course.    
But seriously she is crazy funny. If your not following her you should be.  
I can't watch the Bachelorette in the UK and her post keep in the loop.  
And lets be honest, her post are way more entertaining!

Hello Jennie’s Daily Dose Readers!
I’m Taylor and I write over at The Daily Tay
(it’s a rule all bloggers from Nebraksa must use the word
“Daily” in their title.)

If you didn’t catch that oh so sublte hint, like Jennie, 
am also from the great Cornhusker state.
And similar to where Jennie used to live, I now live in
And next month I’m moving to London! 
Kidding, but wouldn’t
that be ironic/super creepy?

I’m a struggling writer trying to finish my first novel,
which is about tailgating during college football season-
the working title is "Hungover Games."
Again, I'm lying. But I do think that would make for a comical book.

On a normal day you can find me blogging 
about the good
old days of college Dear Real World
voicing my opinion on B List celebs like Emily "Hood Rat" Maynard
or even D-List celeb babies like Maxwell Drew Lachey Simpson
or simply getting excited for Husker football season “Twas the Night Before Game Day..."

I also like to blog about my pup, Harlow, 
going to happy
hour with my boyfriend, Chris, 
and trying to push along the ironic children’s
book I just published called

Okay, I just spewed out a bunch of stuff.
But if I didn't scare you away,
stop on by and say hello to another Nebraska-rooted blogger!

The good life

I'm leavin' on a jet plane.  Don't know when I'll be back again.  

Actually, I know when I'll be back and it's more like planes, trains and automobiles. 

 I'm heading to Nebraska for two weeks for some sun, family and baseball.  I'm going to take a few days off from blogging -  I'll be back mid week next week.  

Enjoy your weekend!

For the home

Last night after the 8 hundredth time of stubbing my toe on the trash can in our tiny kitchen I started dreaming of the perfect kitchen.  You know, one that I can't touch both walls at the same time and has a normal fridge.  I'm not asking to much here.  But, seriously I can't wait to be able to decorate a house and put our personal touches in it.   If I had my dream kitchen this is how I would decorate it.  I would make sure that Matt and I can both be in it at the same time too.  I'm accident prone and at times I need someone to make sure I take the cardboard out from under the pizza before I cook it.  I'm a real Betty Crocker over here.

 I love rustic wood tables, I would have one side with a bench and lucite chairs on the other.  On the chairs, I would throw a few pillows to add some color.  I would accessorize the table with some white candle holders and have a few small mint julep vases of Peonies (my favorite).  As for dishes, I would bring in more color with these funky DVF plates.  I couldn't pass up this cute whale for your butter and the navy DVF tray for entertaining.  Finally, I would add some personal touches with white picture frames filled with my smiling face...and I guess Matt's too.

It's simple and so beautiful
