While The Princess Rests The Consort Raves

Hello again.  It is I, the Princess Consort, stepping mikeside to entertain you while the lovely and talented Preppy Princess recuperates from a blinding migraine headache.  I do not pretend to understand the origin of the headaches but I am eternally grateful that I do not suffer from them.  They seem particularly vicious and I am certain The Princess would be thankful for your kind thoughts.  While we’re speaking of kind thoughts…

We are so thrilled that our blogging friends are sharing their preppy experiences with us!  What a treat to see some of the (smuggled) pictures from last week’s Martha extravaganza.  We’ve seen shots from some fantastic Lilly-themed parties.  It’s almost like we’re there and we thank you for thinking of us.  We’ll be building up some pages at The Preppy Princess where we can share photos with everyone.  Keep ’em coming and we’ll spread the Lilly love.

On to other things… you think you’re good with music?  Have a musical mind like a steel trap?  Put it to the test!  Our very good friends at Very Short List have found a site that posts one excellent song a day.  Your challenge is to name the song.  You’ll find it all here and it’s a lot of fun.  I managed to unleash my inner Steve Perry.  Or was it Perry Como?  Either way… give it a try.  It’s a great timekiller in the office.  And we do need those during these dreary economic days…

Every now and then I have a “WTH?” moment.  I had one when I saw this a while back:

It’s a simple little recipe.  $20 worth of bacon and sausage woven together into a roll.  That breaks down to about two pounds of bacon and two pounds of sausage.  Slather it up with barbeque sauce and pack it around your heart.  Seriously.  This work of art is a cardiac arrest on a plate.  And you can get the recipe here. I think this monstrosity might be just the thing for your next brunch.  Makes a Big Mac look like fingerfood.  You’re going to need something sturdy to carry that much meat so I suggest this:

Custom Totes

Now I know The Princess has already mentioned these to you but I love them.  They are colorful, sturdy and you get to design your own bag.  Go crazy!  Be a ballerina or a pirate!  Go nautical or patriotic!  Plus, you can get matching belts and key fobs to create a look that will be the envy of all the kids on the block.  And isn’t that what it’s all about?

That’s all for now. I must go check on The Princess.  Thank you for indulging me.  I’ll leave you with Motown’s finest, The temptin’ Temptations.  Try the pork loin sandwich and don’t forget to tip your waitperson; they’re working hard for you tonight.  Good night, everyone!

    Oh please give the Princess our best. Her loyal subjects await her return:).

  2. Feel better Princess! I, too, suffer from migraines and I wouldn’t wish them on my worst enemy. Take a nice long nap, no caffeine and lots of blankets on this dreary Monday 🙂 Get better soon!

    Ahhh yes, the Bacon Explosion. My BF’s friend made this for our supwerbowl party…..it was a rather aggressive showing of pork products.

  4. I have actually found that caffeine is the solution to a bad headache. I am personally a fan of Excedrin Migraine (with caffeine) and a coke…it does wonders! (I should know I get headaches often!) Get better and back to blogging! 🙂

  5. Poor Princess! Please give her my best, and keep her in a dark and quiet room, yes?
    and ew, the bacon log is scaring me, Mr. Consort Sir!

  6. “This work of art is a cardiac arrest on a plate.”


    I hope the Princess feels better soon!

  7. I do hope you’re feeling better by now, tp!! Migraines are the suck.
    When you can comfortably open your eyes and feel like reading, this preppy-related post may give you a giggle…

    Poor Princess! Please send our best wishes for a speedy recovery!

  9. Tell the Princess I wish for her speedy recovery!

  10. Please tell TP to feel better!

  11. Wow, I think I just stared at that bacon log for like 10 minutes, maybe more. Don’t get me wrong, I like bacon. I actually love bacon. I see pigs in fields and picture bacon strips with legs. But that is a bit much, even for an Iowan like me. Wow. Bacon.

  12. Oh poor Princess! Migraines are the worst. 😦

    Great to hear from you Mr. Consort!
