Portraits of Normality

I have a collection of family photos on the shelf above my desk at work.

Both photos are in black and white. Both photos are in frames. Both feature your typical American family.

Actually, one photo is the most dysfunctional family of all time.

 The other photo is of my own family.

You have no idea how many times a week I hear the words "Is that Chevy Chase?"

I posted the screen shot to validate it, but I have to make it freaking ginormous in order for you all to see the number. It's not a lack of attention to detail on my part, it's just a complete misunderstanding of how to use modern day technology...

One more thing:

I'm attempting to make this blog more professional (steering away from colorful language not included in this update) so that if anyone wants to take me seriously, they won't feel guilty about it.

My request is simple, friends: Whether you like what you're reading or hate what you're reading, please let me know! I'd love some reviews on the blog, ideas for future posts, questions you may have, etc. Feel free to email me, Tweet me, Facebook me, or leave a comment here on the ole blog.

You guys are the best and I love that you love High Heels & Dirty Dishes! Thank you!

(PS, you all have great hair and look super skinny today!)


  1. I say don't change anything. High Heels & Dirty Dishes is perfect just the way it is.

  2. How did you know my hair looked good today and that I was wearing my skinny jeans?? Are you in my backyard?

  3. I love reading your blog! Don't change it, sometimes it is the "colorful language" that makes it fun to read.

    By the way, you were rockin' those hot pants today! ;)

    1. The colorful language will never change! It's a Miles family tradition, right?!

      (PS those hot pants - I'm gearing up for a side job at Hooters. These kids are SO expensive!)

  4. I don't think you should change how you write Jen. This blog is you.. the way you do things, the way you think and talk. If you change it, it wouldn't be you and it would be as good.

    1. I feel like I need to add SOMETHING, but I just can't put my finger on WHAT. But...that pretty much applies to every aspect of my life! lol Thanks Terri!

    2. The only thing that I could think that you could add to make it "More You" is some bling. :D Sparkle the picture up, put some glitter on the cupboard door handles! Some leopard on the curtains.. !


Look at you, leaving a comment on the ole blog! Awww!
