lunching with friends on the hard concrete steps,
I see you out of the corner of my eye
and I'm reminded of a time
long past, but quickly refreshed.
Did you know?
He and and I were in love,
maybe unconsciously then, but outwardly
and abundantly later.
You had hurt in your eyes
and I, admittedly, was blind in my approach.
But, it was worth it, don't you think?
You have her and I have memories.
I think I catch your glimpse as I pass,
could be mistaken,
might not even be you,
but I flutter inwardly, regardless, at the thought.

Before I lay me down to sleep,
I pray for a man, who's not a creep,
One who's handsome, smart and strong.
One who loves to listen long,
One who thinks before he speaks,
One who'll call, not wait for weeks.
I pray he's gainfully employed,
When I spend his cash, won't be annoyed.
Pulls out my chair and opens my door.
Massages my back and begs to do more.
Oh! Send me a man who'll make love to my mind,
Knows what to answer to 'how big is my behind?'
I pray that this man will love me to no end,
And always be my very best friend.
A MAN'S POEM:
I pray for a deaf-mute gymnast nymphomaniac with huge boobs

Furnishing an apartment is expensive, especially when I'm in love with things like this lamp and this mirror. And I'm moving in with zero furniture or housewares. Fun times shopping, but definitely not cheap!
Also, I'm obsessed with wood, faux bois style, and natural materials right now. Maybe it's because of the wood decorating feature in the latest issue of Martha Stewart Living, but I'm loving it.
Over the last few months, I've accumulated a short list of online boutiques that sell the cutest stuff. So, in the interest of generosity and keeping these wonderful e-tailers open, I thought I'd share the links.
www.shopmodi.com (love the Mr. P tape dispenser!)
http://rarebirdfinds.typepad.com/rare_bird_finds/ - they profile other online shops and hunt out the best stuff
www.kikkerlandshop.com/ (I'm all about the little campfire votive holder)
www.etsy.com - this is the motherlode for all sorts of handmade goodies by individual sellers
http://threepotatofourshop.com (the birds and nests dessert plates are calling my name)
www.blueribbongeneralstore.net - I love 5 and dimes. Seriously, I could spend days in a well appointed Ace Hardware. So, of course I love this stuff!
www.rightbrainterrain.com (I'm so getting the peace poster)
And, yes, this is how I spend my lunch hours - window shopping through my computer screen. :)
