I’m sure the topic of the tragedy that was last night’s finale has been hashed and rehashed too many times to count but what kind of fan am I if I don’t throw in my two cents? And my two cents is this: if midriffs, crocheted booty shorts and wearing glossy jackets without anything underneath is fashion forward, the 2000 teens are looking mighty ugly. I have nothing against Gretchen but I would feel better about her victory if I had even remotely liked her collection. I sort of liked one dress. That’s it. I just don’t understand.

Mondo of course was gracious and held it together as he watched the results in a room with 500 other people, several sporting mustaches and shorts in his honor. He’s such a champ. Was anybody else kind of obsessed with his use of the bright skinny belt?

Love Mondo as much as I do? Gabby shared some great photos and a video of the party last night.

Origami on a string is my fave

It’s no surprise that I love these origami garlands from Etsy shop Jikits. You could hang some stuffed squirrels on a string and I would like it.

The mobile homes mobile is quite genius too.

Handprinted paper for a fete is my fave

Christine Schmidt of Yellow Owl Workshop shares how to make your own handprinted goods (with templates!) over at Sunset. I love the painted look and her pretty handwriting. I’m going to start calling all my parties fetes so people think I’m fancy.

A warm welcome is my fave

I just had to quickly share photos of Alicia, Ryan and Lucas’s homecoming. Don’t you love the crowd of adoring fans? I’m so sad I couldn’t be there.

Thank you to everyone for your sweet comments about the adoption and for reaching out to my sister. Lucas is so loved.
