@EngNaturalBeauty@twitter @like a rabid squirrel @phipsi @tealily Thanks, all. I just told my boss, who took it really well. We've looked into Pods and using some trailer space, but they're all in the range of $3,500 to $4,700. I'm trying to persuade my fiance that we should just sell all of our furniture and ship or drive with the rest, but he's not into it. Wish us luck...

I'm currently sitting at my desk freaking out because I told myself that today would be the day I would tell my boss that my fiance and I are moving across the country next month. Also, moving is so freaking expensive. Any suggestions from other pinners about long-distance moves?

On Light-ish, Hippie-ish, Side Dish Ish/Help

On the day after Thanksgiving, my boyfriend's cousin made this *incredible* raw Brussels sprouts salad, shredded with some apples and maybe some slivered almonds? The dressing was maybe just a squeeze of lemon juice? There was no mayonnaise or anything heavy. It definitely qualified as hippie-ish and there were some questionable glances cast at the bowl, but then we tried it and it was soooooooo good.

Sorry I don't have a recipe; she had just brought this little newspaper clipping and I haven't emailed her to get it from her. This looks pretty close though...

On Big Day for Marriage

Crying! If only it was up to the Executive Branch... Getting this through Congress will be an uphill battle (but one that should be fought!).

On Ask a Clean Person: Laundry School Is In Session!

@olivebee yeah i take this approach too. it makes laundry SO much easier, i've never had an issue with bleeding, and it saves energy! hurrah!

i do separate out my delicates/things that can't be tumble dried, for further streamlining. that way i do a load of dryable stuff and a load of not dryable stuff. minimal thought required.

On Beauty Q&A: What's That Smell?

My perfumes are probably boring, but I (currently) love:
1) Issey Miyake L'eau d'Issey.
2) Kai (for when I want to smell like summer time/Hawaii).
3) YSL Rive Gauche (which I love and which totally reminds me of my mom because she wore it all the time when I was growing up).

And Jennifer Aniston's perfume is nice!

And probably more that I'm forgetting. I have a weakness for gardenia and would bathe in the scent if I could (can I?!) but I have yet to find a gardenia perfume that's nice and pretty without being too in-your-face.
