UPS delivery from California today! A piece of art, made by an old Vermont high school friend who now lives in L.A, just for BLR 365:

How totally awesome is this, and how perfect for Blue Lollipop Road?

Sean “got creative!” (Ok, so he is regularly creative) – but I want you to get creative too! Send your submissions to me:

I had coffee today with LT, owner of Pistol Polish. She’s a member/has an office where I sometimes work. I thought her company looked fun & interesting, so of course emailed her curious to learn more.

Well, you would’ve thought we were long lost friends the way the two of us sassy Yankee ladies instantly started chatting about anything and everything, barely taking a breath between words. It was a blast! I’m always impressed to meet those, I want to work for myself so I’m going to make it happen go-getters. Bonus that LT is not only a super smart & savvy business woman, but she’s hilarious and a blast to be around too. I love that she let me play around with some bottles of her nail polish:

Do you see what I see? This bottle below looks pretty close to Blue Lollipop Road Blue!

Maybe I’ll be able to talk her into naming a blue polish, Blue Lollipop at some point:)

If you’re a mani-pedi kind of gal (or guy!) and are always looking for a new color for your nails delivered right to your door- check out the Pistol Polish subscription options.

If you’re not a mani-pedi kind of gal, you’ll still be inspired by LT’s message to be your best badass self:

pis•tol: noun; a refined yet fiery woman

A PISTOL Woman envisions who she wants to become – whatever that may be – and devotes her life to making that vision a reality. PISTOLs chase their dreams every damn day.

Amen, sister!

Nothing says Super Bowl Party, like red Solo cups, Doritos, chicken wings, meatballs, and guac & chips:

Maybe our party should have offered to feed the Broncos so they would’ve had some energy to actually make something happen in that game! (Look at me talkin’ smack when I don’t really even care about football:)

Whoop! The temperature got above 50 degrees today! Feels like It’s been a while, so we had to get outside and go for a hike at Kings Mountain State Park:

Playing with mud, rocks, sticks, and leaves is fun. Being in the great outdoors with good company that helps you collect rocks and sticks is uber fun.

Here’s to weekends outside!

I fulfilled my week-long hankering for the best veggie burger around today, and we went to Pinky’s for lunch. I was starving, so I thought a fried pickle app was a good idea. Then we decided to play with them and the condiment tray:

Nothing like a responsible 35 and 41 year-old squirting hot sauce, ketchup, and mustard all over the place for reasons of blog post. The staff at Pinky’s is so chill they never would have yelled at us for making a mess of the table anyway:)

If you are in/near/ever visit Charlotte, you must eat at this place! (I recommend the Nature Boy. Mmm…) Walls are covered with random tchotskys, there’s a photo booth, pinball machine, colorful tatted up staff who give speedy friendly service, and a million yummy burger combos (and non-burger) fresh-made options as well. A perfect overall funky vibe of relaxed cool.

I’m soooooo full. (And happy.)

This is my Blue Lollipop Road. Wanna show me yours?

Weirdo alert!

Sometimes I eat bowls of corn for a snack. My boyfriend likes to tease me about this, so he will really get a kick out of today’s BLR:

(Hold the phones; did I just admit that I have a boyfriend?! I think a pig just flew by, and my throat is closing up a little…)

KIDDING! He is totally awesome. (And now he’ll be teasing me about the above line and the corn. I love it.)

Anyway, back to business:

Afternoon sit on the floor to read and work because the sun is streaming in and it feels warm like clothes fresh out of the dryer time today, included a snack of corn. I didn’t eat the kernels that quickly became pasted onto the back cover of the magazine, but the rest of the bowl sure was delicious!

Now I’m wondering what unusual food habits/cravings you all out there might have…

It’s SnOMG in the south! Charlotte rarely gets the white stuff, so naturally this one little inch that came last night:

…has set The Queen City into a tizzy; School, work, and sport cancelled, milk and bread flying off the store shelves. (All that kind of stuff that Vermonters think is really funny when they live in places like North Carolina during the winter.)

I “made” the above BLR on my balcony with a spatula (#AlternativeArtTools) and then of course stood inside to take the photo. I said I was from Vermont, not that I actually like the snow, people! My apartment heat is currently set at 74 degrees. That’s the kind of temperature I’m talking about on January 29th:)

This is what my road looks like today. What’s happening on yours?

I’m not the biggest fan of the cold weather (by that I mean, if I never had to wear anything but flip-flops and sundresses ever again in my life I’d be happy) so, I haven’t necessarily been run, run, running out to find snow and ice to make any of my own etches on windshields this winter during the Polar Vortex. Fortunately a friend in Colorado who is much more brave with snow than me, sent this submission today:

BLR love in the chilly west, while I enjoyed a Monday of 60 degree and sunny temps. in the east.

Thanks David!
