Weekend Wrap-Up

Happy Monday everyone!

Today is a very awesome Monday b/c it's my last day of work before vacation! And by vacation, I mean going to visit relatives, but hey, still not at work = vacation!!!!

I hope everyone had a super fun weekend like I did... Saturday I was extremely lazy and got to sleep in. It was fantastic! I cleaned up a bit and did some laundry. Saturday night, I met up with ABCs & Polkadots and we went to see The Proposal with Sandra Bullock & Ryan Reynolds. It was amazing. So funny. I'm pretty sure I want to see it again. And PS- if I look as good as she does in that movie... dang. I'd be walking around naked all the time. Well, not really, but you know. She's hot.
Sunday was Father's Day and I took my dad to see The Hangover. Ha, I'm not sure I'd recommend seeing this movie with your dad. Don't get me wrong, it was hysterical, but kind of awkward. He loved it though. He cracked up through the entire thing.

After that, I met up with Mrs. Sassy & we hit up the outlets... got a new dress from Gap and some super cute cuffed jean shorts (size 8!!!!!!!!), a cute little outfit from J. Crew and a fun shirt from Banana Republic. It was a trip worth while!

Oh Ladies- check out Fantabulously Frugal's post about CHEAP Vera Bradley! I definitely bougt the Raspberry Fizz backsack for $30 including shipping! I've been wanting one of these FOREVER.

So there ya have it... my weekend wrap up. Like I said, I'll be gone until the 30th but I will try to keep up with my reader... See you ladies soon!

Oh, I almost forgot! I got my summer swap package today!!! Thanks Whitney! I love all my stuff!!!! I can't wait to take my new bag on vacay with me!

Happy Saturday!

Let me first start off my saying how happy I am it's Saturday! I actually slept in till 10:30 today. I don't remember the last time I've slept that long! It was amazing!

Over the last week, I was given two awards. First one is The Honest Scrap Award from Lindsay (yay) over at Goodbye, Martha. I love finding new blogs, especially ones by fellow Lindsays!!!

"The Honest Scrap award comes with a caveat or two. Firstly, you have to tell your readers ten things about you they may not know, but that are true. Secondly, you have to tag 10 people with the award. Thirdly, let all the people you've given the award to know that they've gotten it. And finally, make sure you link back to the person who awarded you."

So without further adieu...

  • I am a natural blonde! (I get highlights, but it would still be blonde even if I didn't get the highlights.)
  • I don't like ice cream sandwiches. When I was little, I'd eat the ice cream, and not the black part. I''m also the same with Oreos. I don't like the cookie part. I know, I'm weird.
  • I will never buy a PC ever again, but ya'll probably could have guessed that :o)
  • I don't do roller coasters. Or any ride for that matter. I enjoy being on the ground.
  • I love Ludacris. The rapper. He is so fun and his songs are so catchy.
  • I've read all the Harry Potter books, some three times over. (except the last one- I've only read that one once.)
  • If it were socially acceptable, I'd be in sweatpants and a t-shirt EVERY DAY. If we all did it- no one would think "Man, she looks rough today", right? Right.
  • I've never been outside North America. (I've been to Canada & Mexico, but no other foreign countries, and I'd love to go!)
  • John Mayer is my favorite artist. Ever. I could listen to him and only him for the rest of my life.
  • I've subscribed to three magazines in about a week. (Food Network, Martha Stewart Living & Real Simple.) AND I LOVE THEM.
So there ya go- some random things about me! I tag whoever wants to play and girlies that haven't gotten this award yet!

The Second award is Attitude of Gratitude from Kikibee! She is someone who can always put a smile on my face! Even though we've only known each other for a little while, I feel like she will be a lifelong friend!!

The Rules of Accepting and Sharing this Award

2. Nominate at least 10 blogs that show an attitude of gratitude.
3. Link to your nominees within your post.
4. Comment on their blogs to let them know they've received this award.
5. Share the love and link to this post and the person who nominated you for the award. Tell us how you've come to have an attitude of gratitude.

I give this award to everyone- all of you ladies have great attitudes and I LOVE reading all your blogs! (Duh, or else I wouldn't be reading them!)

Thanks ladies for these blog awards- it means a lot! I hope you all have a great weekend! I'll be back for a fun Father's Day Post! Enjoy the sunshine!

I'm back.

This is going to be short, I'm sorry. A few things...

  • Sending out my summer swap package today! (sorry I'm about 4 days late, it's coming, I promise!)

  • Got the new iPhone 3.0 software downloaded- finally! It ended up not being available until 1 Pm- who does that? Anyway, it's super fun, but I'm a little bummed b/c some of the things I thought would be on the update- are only available w/ the iPhone 3.0 S - so maybe when I can save some money (after all these weddings!) I can upgrade.
  • So as quickly as it came, it's gone. Yes, the air conditioning unit for work. It worked. Kind of. The office cooled down, but it only made half of the office COLD. So they took it away this morning and hopefully will have a window unit in by the end of the day. But here's the kicker- today, the heat index is supposed to be 105 degrees. Awesome.
  • I am getting a pedicure today. My toes look TERRIBLE.
  • I didn't eat breakfast and I'm starving! Ughhh, hurry up lunch time!
  • I have some awards to pass out, so I promise I'll get on that!
