Me First and the Gimmie Gimmies are a punk-rock group featuring members of Lagwagon, No Use For A Name and NOFX who do punk covers of golden oldies, country songs and musicals. Blake introduced me to them and I think I'll give him an extra kiss today as thanks.
My favoritest (my blog, my words) CD of theirs is Have a Ball. Their versions of "Me and Julio Down By The Schoolyard" and "Seasons in the Sun" are fantastic. Go listen now.
You wanna kiss me as thanks, don't you?
This is maybe the most specific shoe recommendation ever, but for a reason. Sam & Libby shoes are so cute and I own several pairs of the Kalis shoe which is a cute ballet flat in ten million different fabrics/colors. It's awesome.
But the black floral is my favorite. I wear tons of black and these shoes spice it up. I really just wear these with jeans; I'm not a flats-with-skirts type of girl. You would not believe the compliments from random strangers you'll get wearing these shoes. Trust me.
I've also found you the deal of a lifetime. Right now at Kohls.com they are FIVE DOLLARS! Go right now.

Skin: Holy crap, I forgot sunscreen! AHHHHH!!
After Sun Lotion: Relax.
Skin: No seriously, I am burnt! HELP!
Lotion: Shh, shhh. I'm here, skin.
Skin: I'm so lucky to have you.
Lotion: Yes, yes you are.
No seriously, it's that good. When we landed in Hawaii this is the second thing I bought (I wish I could say first thing, but I'm keeping it real) My family refers to this as just "sun lotion" as in "I am a super white human being and have been in the sun too long. Where is my sun lotion?"
Somehow this keeps you from peeling from a sunburn and helps your tan (and by "tan", I mean "slightly less off-white". At least in our family) Fabulous. In just every drugstore ever. Buy it now.
Skin: Oh, rub that right in, baby.
