If you could pick a cartoon world to live in, which would it be?  Why?
Submitted by Scio, Scio.

how about the cartoon sequence in the 1980 film, xanadu. this way i could become a fairy, a bird and a fish.

clothes: tops i've worn lately, my owl tank, fruit stripes top from anthropologie, it must be love tee by amy tangerine, pink angel tee from urban outfitters, greyish v-neck tee from old navy… i'm sure i'll think of more later.

a little late for earth day but nonetheless sincere these are the things i've changed to start living greener everyday!

but first, since buying a big volvo suv in december, which i felt very good about at the time because weren't driving very much and i like a big safe family car that i can pack all of our stuff in for road trips. and then about 5 weeks after purchasing the big suv i got a job and i commute, eek! this is not a commuter vehicle. i feel guilty about my comfort and safety and that sucks, not to mention the wretched gas prices in california. so my solutions to guilt and to minimize my "footprint" as they say here's my short list:

as of yesterday i am officially vegan!

i bought a big SIGG water container to carry with me, no more little plastic bottles. eliot has one too.

shorter showers, especially in our old home, one of our showers takes forever to get hot so that shower will now be used minimally.

i unplug electronics that aren't in use

we use seventh generation diapers

we use seventh generation recycled paper towels

i use cloth napkins everyday

i buy biodegradable  household cleaning products

i buy organic produce/foods

i recycle my old running shoes

we recycle more then ever at home

we walk where ever we can

andy's commuting on the train more

we only run the dishwasher when it's about to explode because it's so full!

i finally have some tote bags to bring to the grocery store!

i plan on going to our local farmers market next weekend when it reopens for the season

we buy into our local green energy company

so that's what i can think of off the top of my head. so my wish is for everyone to go just a little green. green is beautiful!

clothing: yesterday i wore my bay area boot camp light blue tank under my baby gap preppy blue argyle sweater vest, i love that thing. today i have on a pink t with tiny dinosaurs on it, plaid patchwork shorts, brown belt and brown born platform sandals.

What is your home decorating style, and how has it changed over time? Do you have plans to redecorate? 
Submitted by enSue.

i think i hold back to much in my decorating style. i'm really into minimalism and modern. and andy tends to be afraid of this being too cold so i end up adding shapes and colors that aren't my first choice. my other reason for holding back is that i've always been waiting to do what i truly want to do for the house we own/build.

so i like simple but i also like little bits of lovely personality with photos, art, sentimental pieces, but not cluttered. as i design my dream house i'll be incorporating built-ins and shelves, places for art, big windows. i start salivating at the thought. i really want to design a home for us.

clothing! on monday i ended up with a third outfit! i put on a lacy white tank layered under a marc by marc jacobs tunic top and true religion dark jeans with the woman patch on the butt. tuesday i wore my charolette i love you red and white striped tee and jeans to eliot's new gym class! wednesday i did camp consultations and had on my white tank under my lamb pirate ship tee, marc by marc jacobs green gauchos and black boots. in the evening i went to an amazing event* with eliot in menlo park and wore a lovely black top with satin covered buttons on the 3/4 length sleeves, a key hole back and fitted, jeans rolled to my knees with tall black boots.

*roz savage gave an inspiring talk telling her atlantic ocean tale and answering questions. eliot even got to touch her big boat!!

Girl, boy, game you should have won, job you should have gotten…tell us about one that got away. 
Submitted by Phil.

i always get everything i want. i've always thought that way and will continue to. if it has somehow slipped by i guess i didn't truly want it.

clothes! wednesday i wore a betsey johnson white eyelet jacket, a black cotton ruffle top, a butterfly skirt and green platform borns. thursday was a pajamas clean up the house day. while cleaning out my closet i realized i've worn a couple tees and they haven't been noted so i must list my vegetarians have more fun tee from urban outfitters and ny love love love tee from delia's.

What's in a screen/user name? Tell us how you found yours.
Submitted by Bill.

i came up with heartshapedsky last summer after i started making my little heart-shaped pillow necklaces. which i haven't made any in recent months because i've been studying for my american council on exercise personal trainer exam, which i PASSED today! i am officially a personal trainer! so exciting. less studying means more time to play with eliot and andy and train myself and be creative.

for my test today i had to wear my trunk wonder woman thermal!
