20. Assemblog du Jour: God Bless Netflix

I have become completely and hopelessly obsessed with watching things instantly on Netflix. Mostly I’ve been reliving my youth by watching entire series of shows I grew up with. First I watched about 7 seasons of Murder She Wrote and now I’m almost to the end of the last season of Roseanne.

Lots of things were unique about that show. Roseanne was the first show centered around a blue collar woman and her family. It tackled a lot of different topics that are still relevant (homosexuality, unemployment, depression, domestic abuse, birth control, abortion.. etc). Not only that, but it is a fantastic time capsule for the fashions of the late 80’s and early 90’s. But do you know what I am most focused on with every episode? Dan’s boatshoe-loafer-type footwear.

This man is the epitome of blue collar, why is he wearing shoes that are meant to be worn during one of the most expensive hobbies in existence? I love them and I have decided that I want my own pair.

Also in this Assemblog, I’ve included some jewelry from the House of Harlow 1960 line. When I heard that Nicole Richie was going to start designing clothing and accessories, I figured it was just going to be a fly-by-night endeavor where she would hire someone and then slap her name on it. I don’t know if that’s really the situation and I don’t care. I love the result.

19. Mmmmm…. Muffins…

Mmmm…

I don’t like blueberries, but I love blueberry muffins. I especially love when they have sugar on top and it becomes all crunchy and delicious. This time I decided to try brown sugar. I would call it a success but I think that maybe some cinnamon would compliment the brown sugar next time.

Ole!

I discovered the taco flavored ground turkey and decided to make some psuedo-tacos with what I already had around the house. I added some rice to the cooked meat because I had a teeny bit left and instead of lettuce I used some leftover sprouts. It was pretty much the most delicious thing I’ve ever made. I might just be saying that because I’m a sucker for anything TexMex.

 

Piles and piles of squares….

This is as far as I’ve gotten in the Mario blanket. Did you know your hands can cramp up after crocheting too much? I’ve added about 10 more squares since I took this picture but I’m still pretty far behind as Heather’s birthday was last Tuesday. I’m guessing this project should be done by May…. 2013 (unless the world ends).
