airy pottah

tonight is harry potter. midnight. and we're there. even with my daily 7am alarm tomorrow morning.

one of my life's most legitimate, but unrealistic dreams, is that hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry was real and existed, and that i was in fact, after all these years, just a muggle-born wizard. true story.

i love harry potter. forever and always.


look at that ring. i cannot handle it. momma wants.

know what else i can't handle? baby harry! oh my lord. baby harry, you might be the baby i kidnap and buy a sapphire necklace for. i want to eat his little face.

ps - girl crush alert + dress crush. i want everything in this photo. royal engagement fevah!

yes. yes. yes. yes. yes. yes. yes. yes.

holiday curmudgeons better get outta here!

thanksgiving and christmas are the slices of bread that make my most favorite sandwich of the year.

i just need to take 2.5 seconds to acknowledge the fact gwyneth paltrow absolutely killed it on glee last night. she's always been in my top 5 list of girl crushes, but last night man. wowzers. i want to go on vacation with that lady, and would most definitely move to london and/or LA to nanny apple and moses, and to play a good heart and soul with her hubby chris martin.

bling blang!

woohoo! i'm stoked for this, and admittedly unreasonably so. probably mostly because i have a big girl crush on kate middleton. congrats to prince william + soon-to-be princess kate. i know you're both big followers of the blog.

anyway, check out that BLANG! first of all, it's princess diana's engagement ring. and second of all HELLO SAPPHIRE. now, i'm not really much of a jewelry girl. i love it, but for some reason i just don't have a good eye for what jewelry would accessorize what outfit best. (la kitty kat beck is my go-to woman for that). and because i'm so bad at it, i get easily overwhelmed and discouraged that everything/nothing jumps out to me rather than specific pieces.

anyway, so, not the best jewelry go-to girl, but i'll tell you one thing that i do like: sapphires. they're just so freaking pretty, and for no other reason than that, for a while i've wanted a tiny baby sapphire necklace. (please note: baby here means a necklace with a small stone, not an actual sapphire necklace for a baby. if that were the case, call the cops because i guess i've kidnapped a baby). my roommate amy has a perfect sapphire ring that's surrounded by diamonds that i think was her grandmother's (amy, is that right?). i wish she had normal human fingers so that i could borrow it. and by borrow i mean gaze at longingly because i would never borrow someone else's heirloom jewlery. and by "i wish she had normal human fingers" i just mean that she has small delicate fingers, and i'm jealous.

the end.

ps - i should probably establish that this is not part of my christmas list. for that info, please see my actual christmas list.

peas and thank you

i found another life/food/fitness blog. i'm addicted, i really am.

i stumbled across peas and thank you a little while ago and at first glance, i admit that i was reluctant.

judging her about me,

Hi, I'm Sarah.

I used to be a lawyer.
I used to be a meat eater.
I used to be well-rested and relatively well-groomed.

Now I'm a writer.
Now I don't eat animals.
Now I'm a stay-at-home mom.

I'm Mama Pea.

i was expecting sarah's blog to be more "i'm a momma and a vegetarian, and you should be too!" than sarcastic, real, and hilarious.

turns out, that's what peas and thank you is. i've already slol'ed a few times (silent laugh out loud).

i especially love her hate/hate relationship with her cat. basically they used to be besties until mama pea got pregnant, and now they're mortal enemies living under the same roof. so so funny.

dear santa

dear santa,

when i was little, i used to be so perplexed by adults' christmas lists and gifts. money? who wants money for christmas? a vacuum cleaner? who wants a vacuum cleaner? (actually my brother. he asked for a rainbow vacuum for his high school graduation gift. oh, the clines: a family of weird ocd-esque goofballs).

well santa, i'm grown-up now, at least my birth certificate would say so, and now i understand. after all, i asked for an electric toothbrush for my birthday. so without further ado, i give you my 2010 christmas wishlist. sit back and enjoy it in all of its boring adultness.

1. cash money

2. a green garmin forerunner 405

3. a shopping spree (i borrow my roommates' clothes more than i wear my own. i've probably bought new clothing twice in the last year).

4. more cash money so that i can go to martinique (although that could push to my birthday).

casey in the city

i feel like now is also a good time to mention how much i've grown to dislike the title of my blog. it's so kitschy. i don't even know if kitschy is the right word, but it sounds right. casey in the city. come on, 2008-cline. could you not have thought of something better?

but alas, i've got all my formatting just right and my link will change and my readers (all eleven of you!) will get all confused and then give up on me because you can't find me.

what's a bloggirl to do? maybe i'll switch to wordpress or something more jazzed up. thoughts?


my #1 lady. my boo. my idol.

lance lohman, you send the best links.

tina fey, i hope to one day meet you and not totally creep you out. i'll woo you with my southern twang and penchant for eating like a high school boy.

i'm reading through this list and will let you know exactly how many things i didn't know about her. stand by...

die alone - ingrid michaelson

i'm back from the depths of work and visitors (especially a super hottie one!) and the land of i-don't-have-enough-time-to-even-breathe.

back with a vengeance (if vengeance were a cute nerdy girl with a smooth voice).
