since you can't be with me

Oh hey guys. So it's Friday. I'm just sitting here on the deck, enjoying this little view. You can imagine the pain that I'm in right now. I so wish you all could be here. A little blogger mountain trip. How great would that be? Maybe not so great for the fashion bloggers. Only because I've been in jeans and an old t-shirt and a ball cap and no makeup for the last three days now. I also had to cop a squat a few times. But that's not the point of this post. The point is since you can't be with me in the mountains, I thought I'd let you be with someone else. Someone who is actually a whole lot funnier and more fashionable and ...
Hey! I am Deidre and my husband and I blog over at Love, The Skinnys. Let me just say. I am happy to be here! Seriously pumped! And with that being said. I know what you are thinking.. something like this perhaps...

"Where is Tiff?! I came here to read Tiff. And now I am stuck with this bizzare Deidre girl?!"

Listen, I have had the same thoughts. And now I have exactly... 7 seconds to impress you. To convince you to click through on that little baby hyperlink to my blog. Trust me. You will want to keep reading.

Top 10 Reasons to Click HERE

1. I have no filter. And that means there are always things that are borderline inappropriate and potentially awkward for everyone to read. And who doesn't love a good awkward moment?
2. The blog is a nice balance between a woman that can wear a crown and a woman that can make herself look like she just got in a bar fight.

3. Every Tuesday you get to hear a little from my husband. He loves to blog and he loves comments.
4. No story is kept a secret. Wanna know about my past dating life? It's there. Wanna know about my wedding? It's there. Wanna know about what I ate for dinner last night? It's there. Wanna know about the time I hit a bird with my car? It's there... that was a sad day.
5. Every Friday you have a fashion post to look forward to. Cheap fashion that is. We are talking Target, thrift stores, Kmart, Desert Industries. Because we all know I can't pay $100 for a shirt. And even if I could,  I would rather spend $100 on 4 shirts... because that is actually what I tend to do. I have a Target shopping problem.

Ooops... Wrong photo. Let's try fashion again....

6. Easy recipes... cooking is hard!
7. I give good hugs. What does that have to do with blogging? I don't know. But I do love hugging!
8. Weekend music and sweet videos. 
9. Currently... there is lots of wedding stuff. Weddings make people happy. So I am spreading it out over time. You can see everything I did. And by did. I mean really did. Do it yourself wedding? Check!
10. Last of all... I am hilarious. If you don't believe me ask my parents.

So hopefully those ten reasons were enough to get a click through and a little love. Otherwise. Nice knowing ya! See you in heaven!


Guys, I think Deidre is on to something here.
Cooking. Is. Hard.

You know what isn't hard?
Looking at mountains and drinking coffee.
Oh and announcing a winner is pretty darn easy {and fun} too ...

  1. your pictures are stunning. love the view. and thanks for the intro to Deidre. her video is enough proof that she will be a joy to read. bwahaha i'm dying over the girl playing the flute

  2. jealous her hubs blogs!! i've been trying to get my other half to do a "guest post" since i started... no luck in this tiny, brownstone apartment!

    yay for mountains and no makeup! you'd be a true mountain girl if you also didn't own a brush (my friend in maine has not owned a brush or hair product or blowdryer in over 6 years and her hair looks AMAZING... no idea how she does it)


  3. OKAY, I'm already pumped to check out her blog! WOOT! :)

  4. Tiff thanks for the introduction. Deidre looks like an interesting blogger!!

    Maybe her husband can inspire Dan to blog and then he can do some cool cooking posts for you!!

  5. So that picture is AMAZING! Sounds like you are having the perfect time Tiff!

    Deidre - I'm kind of jealous that your husband blogs! Lucky lady! I've been trying to get my boyfriend to throw in stuff every now and again with no luck! I'll be swinging by to check out some posts!

  6. i am so jealoussss of your photos. I want to be there. Like yesterday.

  7. Those mountains are so beautiful. I wish we could all be there too. Deidre had me at "potentially awkward for everyone to read". On my way there now! Enjoy the rest of your vacation.

  8. *trying to put that green eyed monster back in the bag* That view is...*gasp* breathtaking! Let's swap! I'll take mountains & no make up any day!

    Deidre sounds like loads of fun! I'm making my way over to her blog NOW.

    Enjoy the R&R for us both :)
