Feet First Down the Rabbit Hole…

I’ve been inspired by the many awesome ladies I follow on Twitter(@modernsinglemom, @MissIve, @fleurdeleigh, @ZenMommy, @RiaSharon & @misscriss0830) and the blogosphere. I’m joining their newest adventure Looking Glass Lane and compiling my very own dossier. I’m not very good at self description, but I’m working on it. This is attempt #1 and I may have to come back to revise later, but here we go…

Dossier of a Domestic Darling(@jrporter to the twitterverse)

Looking Glass Powers:
Ability to call it like I see it – that’s just how I roll

Ability to stand behind my true passions in life and rally those who are passionate too

Dress-up Closet:
Knee high socks, dark wash jeans, must-have Fossil watch, comfy t-shirts, and every color flip-flop you can imagine

Little black dress and red Nine West heels – for when I really want to go incognito 😉

Go-To Gadget:
Canon PowerShot, iPhone and my PowerMac G4

Rag Mags at the checkout stand

Magic Potion:
Leinie’s Berry Weiss in the summer and Malibu + Pineapple juice all year long – yummm!
And a bottle of Late Harvest Gewurztraminer
Venti Green Shaken Iced Tea Lemonade – sweetened (of course)

Battery Recharge Hub (other than Looking Glass Lane, of course):
My own backyard
Couch + Chick Flick + pint of Haagen Dazs Chocolate Peanut Butter ice cream
A pier looking over the bay in Seattle on a crisp clear morning, whole wheat apple muffin in one hand and a coffee in the other…

Bratty Spoilers:
A soak in a bubble filled jacuzzi tub
A massage and mani/pedi
Napping on a rainy afternoon with the one I love

Owner’s Manual:
When I find it I’ll let you know

Wooden spoon and a frying pan – I’ll wreak havoc on your kitchen!

Words of hatred
Tears of pain

Secret Ambition:
Sexy Librarian – World Traveler

Inspiration Found

Okay, so it took the first coat of paint in our bedroom to make it happen, but I’m now so inspired to do the rest of the house I can’t stand it. I don’t want to do anything else now! Atleast I was able to create a retreat for hubby and I when we want to just lay in bed and read or talk. The room is nearly finished, I received the mirror I’ve been waiting for in the mail today, so that can go up and then it’s just crown molding and a few more artistic treats and we’re done.

You can go here to see the pics I’ve taken so far.
