[ETSY] We Can Do Hard Things Sign

Just a reminder.  Really, you can.  If I had an office, this would be in it.

[GIFTED] Mean Cards

Picture it: you're wandering the aisles of Rite Aid, trying to find a funny card for your friend, loved one, or work-related acquaintance.  You've got the sappy, vomit-inducing cards to the left, and the earnestly not funny "funny" cards to the right.  What are you going to do?  

Order a bunch of cards from Mean Cards, and avoid this horrible situation altogether.  They're hysterical and a little mean, but the meanness is negated by the fact that you're sending a card to someone, which is an inherently nice gesture.

They're $2.95 a piece, and totally worth it.  You should also check out this hilarious slideshow of how Mean Cards came to be.

My 5 Best Gifts: Kristin Gilbertson from Appletree Staging

Let's face it: giving the perfect gift to someone is like standing on top of a mountain and shouting, "HEY EVERYONE, I'M NOT AN EMOTIONAL CRIPPLE!"   

My 5 Best Gifts is a recurring feature that asks people to give up the goods on the best gifts they've given or received. 

Kristin Gilbertson, a Minnesota-based blogger and designer from Appletree Staging, spills on what she thinks are the best gifts to give moms, dads, kids, and alcoholic brothers.

I Love it When You Call Me Big Poppa: A Father's Day Gift Guide

If you're like my family, you may or may not have gotten into a heated debate about the Casey Anthony trial.  For those of you who come from normal families and don't know what I'm talking about, Casey Anthony is a young mother who has been accused of killing her daughter, Caylee. 

But if you follow the news or have watched the thinly-veiled Law & Order: SVU "RIPPED FROM THE HEADLINES" episode starring Hillary Duff, you know this: it was Casey's MOTHER who turned her in for possibly murdering her granddaughter.

This is where my family comes in.  My mother told me that she would DEFINITELY turn me into the police if she thought I killed someone.  My father, on the other hand, told me that he would help me get rid of the body. 

This is what Father's Day is all about. 

Your mother bristles at the thought of little things like "manslaughter" and "prison" and "homicide," but your father doesn't have time for that shit.  He's already out in the garage gathering garbage bags and a shovel.  Now THAT'S love.

Whether he's helping you conceal a murder, threatening your dates with a baseball bat, or calling you every five minutes to ask you if you're still alive (you live in New York City, you could be killed at any moment), this guy is absolutely, 100% concerned about you and your well-being every waking moment of the day. 

Let's honor his stifling overprotectiveness and unconditional love by buying him something other than a necktie this year, shall we?

[RECAP] Million Dollar Decorators: Episode 2

Last week, we met the five crazies that we will be following around for the remainder of the season (until it gets cancelled, that is) while they drop hundreds of thousands of dollars on stupid shit like side tables and gold-leaf covered antler chandeliers.

This week, we were thrown right back into the "drama," where some rich lady doesn't like Jeffrey's design, some rich lady is upset about antique tiles, and Martyn and Kathryn get drunk.

Anyone sensing a theme here?
