Two 4 Tuesday

Gonna start a Tuesday tradition, I think.  Cool with you guys?  Aight.  Y'all are so good to me!

Here it goes. Every Tuesday I'll list Two Things that're really Tickin' my Ticker.  That's like floatin' my boat, but way cooler, because you know, it'll be stuff that makes my heart go pitter-patter. (Girls, think Brad Pitt in Legends of the Fall; Guys, think of... I don't know... your fave Victoria's Secret model showing up at your front door in a French bikini or 90% off all TV's at Best Buy).

Then, dear readers, I'll ask you to reciprocate.  Deal?  Gold stars to all of you.  Let's go!

1. PASTELS.  Out of this world crazy about 'em.  And not just in clothes and shoes, though those are awesome, too.  I'm talkin' everything from food to housewares to towels to nail polish to flowers blooming around well-trimmed lawns and white poodles dyed Easter pink--the whole kit 'n caboodle. Pastels make me think of Spring and sunshine, breezy weather, pretty beaches, and the feel of warm sand beneath my piggies.

2. NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK: THE REVIVAL.  Don't you dare laugh. I was born in '78; NKOTB is a part of my childhood, as are denim jackets loaded with metal buttons, side ponytails, huge bangs that require an entire can of hairspray, jelly bracelets, and tight-rolled jeans. So, to see them touring with 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men and the way cool tribute to wallflowers with their brand new single Remix (I Like The) definitely makes this 80's/90's girl's heart go pitter-patter-pitter-patter. Plus, they're all grown up now and, I don't know, their reappearance from behind the sofa is rather refreshing amongst the pile of Bieber and Beyoncé and... all those other people I don't listen to.

So, what two things are you loving this week?

Peace, Love, and Junior Mints,

Wait, does this mean I need a favorite Victoria's Secret model? I don't even know who they are anymore. The last favorite Victoria's Secret model I had was Kathy Ireland. How long ago was that?

Andrew, I LOVE Kathy Ireland. I'll never forget when she made the cover of the SI swimsuit issue in that green bikini. Still one of the prettiest ladies on the planet, IMO.

I don't remember that cover, but she's the only one of their models I ever had a thing for. If you can call it that. I don't have any idea what she looks like, now, so, maybe, I should check that out.
