Excellence is not an act, but a habit

WE ARE WHAT WE REPEATEDLY DO

Werkin’ for the weekend

We are back from London/Paris (recap soon to come) and are packing our bags to head to Kiawah for what will certainly be a gorgeous wedding for a dear college friend. 

And then on Sunday….we are PICKING UP OUR CORGI PUPPY TO COME HOME WITH US!!!!

This blog will soon be dedicated to all things Harry corgi. Stay tuned.

Someone’s taking her crazy pills

"Phyllis Schlafly Claims Women Paid the Same as Men Won’t Find Husbands"

Wait, what? Is this one of those paid editorials promoting the new season of Mad Men on HuffPo? 

I mean really. Are you FUCKING. KIDDING. ME. 

"The conservative activist also noted that women do not deserve equal pay because they "work fewer hours per day, per week, per year” and “place a much higher value on pleasant working conditions: a clean, comfortable, air-conditioned office with congenial co-workers.” Where is this woman getting her data and evidence? Better Homes and Gardens from 1967? And since when did anyone NOT place a high value on legal, humane working conditions? Am I missing something?? 

Get her out of here and put her in the cage where she belongs. As well as all the Congresswomen and men who voted against this bill. #hillary2016

Prince George is skeptical about Australia. I am skeptical of him having a full head of hair for longer than 20 years.

I will forever reblog anything to do with the precious angel that is Prince George.

"Hang in there"

Words just uttered to me by a 23 year-old employee at our company in the bathroom. Wet hair, glassy eyes, general dazed expression — she probably thought someone I know DIED recently. Or I was hungover. Or like, I have a small child at home. Nope…just working around the clock getting ready for our Paris/London trip. ENJOY YOUR YOUTHFUL ENERGY, YA DAMN MILLENIAL. JUST WAIT. 

New music find: Carousel

Last night, I attended the Cherub concert in downtown Raleigh with 250 of the city’s drunkest 19 year-olds. 

Amidst the crop tops, fake ID passing in the line, and over-enthusiastic hugs (“oh-my-gahhhh I didn’t know you were comiiiiiiiing!!” running/jumping into one another’s arms; one then exhales cig smoke), I felt ancient. But, like..not in a bad way? Almost in a relieved way. And hey, I was still there so that gives me some cool points right? Right….right. 

Anyway, the opener for Cherub was this great band called Carousel. Passion Pit-vibe with more keyboard. Check out their latest song here:
