Finally Fall

Walked out to my car this morning, keys and coffee in hand, to head to work. I realized it's chilly and overcast! I LOVE this weather!
It's really starting to feel like fall, as of today. This is by far my favorite time of year, the leaves are starting to turn gorgeous colors, time to get sweatshirts and scarves out, and drinking cocoa.
I'm very much in my element with the fall weather the way it is right now...happy Fall everyone!

Not a great way to start the MONDAY

Can't sleep.
Very disappointed Desperate Housewives hasn't made it online yet to abc.com

Sunday, September 27, 2009


Leaving in about an hour to get Chris from the airport - I've been busy all morning: cleaning, cooking dinner (so it's ready for us when we get home), making cheesecake and trying to squeeze in some relaxing time!
Started watching Eastwick on abc.com. So far, it's pretty cute. I love Lindsay Price, loved her in Lipstick Jungle (why on earth was that show cancelled?!) so I'm excited to see her in another show.
Hope you all have a fabulous Sunday, whether it be watching football all day, sleeping, watching movies, cuddling up with a good book, have a good one!

To be alone is to know ones self, and that is delicious.


Dropped Chris off at the airport yesterday, the drive home was fine, but I got pulled over and got a ticket. I was speeding on 149, the CHP was very nice and polite, long story short, I got a long lecture and a ticket for having my seatbelt off when being pulled over...not for speeding. He said if he gave me a speeding ticket for the mileage I was going, the ticket would be over $300. WHEW! God bless the CHP!
Let Chris know when he called me later last night, at first he thought it was funny, then he was worried, now he doesn't want me driving his truck anymore :o(
Had a great nights' sleep after a 3 hour nap yesterday, so I started working in the shed. Got up this morning around 9:30 to watch a little bit of America's Next Top Model and wake up...and now I'm just a bit over halfway done in the shed! Very excited, will post pictures when complete.
Hope you all are enjoying your Saturday morning!

Shopping: Forever 21/Faith 21

Newfound Love - Forever 21!
Stopped by the mall last night to cash in two super cool gift cards I got in the mail: 1 for a free pair of panties at Victoria's Secret and 1 free small lotion at Bath & Body Works. Score!
Stopped through Forever 21, ran into my girl friend Angela and we roamed the isles together...it's huge! The same Gottschalks building, so nothing but cute clothes, accessories, small sections for purses and shoes. Just about EVERYTHING I saw, I loved! The accessories are enormous, bold, gorgeous! Cute flower pins, bracelets, necklaces, and huge rings that I love. Shoes and purses weren't that big of a selection, but I did find some sandals I liked, but Angela said she wouldn't hang out with me if I wore them :o)
So then, here's the best part...the have a section of the store for us curvy mama's. The clothes are called Faith 21. Oh my goodness. The CUTEST tops, skirts and dresses! Big selection of cute dresses that are more dressy than a regular Saturday afternoon. I didn't buy anything, but all day at work I kept thinking of this cute red and black plaid shirt with super cute feminine ruffles on the front that didn't make it look so butch. I went back on my lunch hour, but unfortunatelly they sold out! :o( I did find a pink and white shirt that is exactly the same, you all know I love pink so I'm still thrilled. Plus - on sale for $8.99! :o)
I will now officially be buying all of my accessories there.
Best thing that happened to Chico (and my closet) is Forever 21!

Typical Monday....

Currently listening to Bob Marley, dinner is made, waiting for Thomas and Chris to finish hanging my shelves in the kitchen then we will eat. Probably play a few games of UNO, have some brownies, and call it a night...ahhh...bliss.

Computer Games: Dorks

I'm a little concerned that I just spent the past 3 1/2 hours playing a computer game. My boyfriend turned me into a dork.

This is Missy's Idea of Helping me Clean

Music: Falling Down

So...just about every celebrity is coming out with their own fragrance, clothing line, shoe line, jewelery line, etc. Singers are becoming actors, actors are becoming singers. I'm certainly not helping by posting this video of Scarlett Johansson singing "Falling Down." I like it: her voice is raw, deep and edgy and the song itself is the quirky, independant type I like...enjoy!


I Do!

Prince Harry is to be turning 25 soon...that's when he gets his fortune...If he's reading this, I Do!

My Relaxing Weekend

Thought I'd take a minute to write a bit about my boring, non-eventful weekend that I'm REALLY looking forward to!
After work today, I'm heading straight over to watch my niece play in-door soccer. I'll be a bit late as I get off work at 5 p.m., so I hope I don't miss too much of the game as it starts @ 4:45. Chris is meeting me there - Allyce is SOOO excited to show him her skillz (as she says! LOL).
Then, Chris has a softball game @ 7:10, then tomorrow morning he has to be up and on the road VERY early. His son is going to his mom's for the weekend, so I have the house ALL TO MYSELF ALL AFTERNOON! :o) Very much looking forward to that as I need to clean.
Sunday, I have planned for us to clean out the shed and haul all our camping gear neatly away.
WHEW! So excited for this boring weekend! :o)

I wonder why people have bad attitudes at work...it's not like we are family members, friends or in any other relationship.
We're co-workers. We are here for business. Me being where I'm at for 8 hours a day is to pay my bills. To help run a business that is not mine, but by being here and a part of it, makes it part of me.
Co-workers are strangers until brought together by a company. You may become friends with co-workers and go to lunch, share recipies, gossip and colds. The other option is the friendly "Good Morning!" while you're both passing each other in the hall, or asking how their weekend went on a bleary-eyed Monday morning.
I wouldn't go up to a stranger on the street and snap at them, or give them attitude. I don't know them. They are not a part of me or my life. They don't know my secrets or my home life. I don't work for my co-workers nor do they work for me. We work WITH each other.
Calm the 'tudes, dudes!

My little girl

My little girl, Missy. I got mt little sweetheart from the SPCA. I highly recommend any animal lovers to get an animal from their local pound. Unfortunatelly, the county I live in does euthanize the animals that can't find loving, caring homes. After having her for a little over two years, I cannot imagine how I could have coped with all the crazy in my life without her. She grounds me, she gives me a reason to go out and get some fresh air during a nice walk when some days, I just want to stay indoors with the shades drawn and nothing but silence and alone. I saved her life, as she did mine!

Modern Day Martyr

I'm so tired - I didn't get much sleep last night, so I'd love to go home after work and take a nap.
Thing is, Chris has a softball game at 6 p.m., I'll be in the hot sun until about 7:30, then no doubt will he want to hang around for nearly an hour drinking beer and chatting with the other players.
I enjoy watching him play, but mostly go because he likes me to go.
If I complain about it, clearly not something I want to go to tonight, yet go anyway, am I making myself a modern day martyr?

Always speak your mind...even if your voice shakes

It's ok to say what is on your mind. It's ok to have an opinion, a theory.
The Lord gave us a voice, a choice, free-will, and for most of us, strong-will!
I am learning how to have an issue, and speak on it. I am learning how to have an opinion, and place it respectfully. I am learning that when I am upset or bothered, the best thing to do is talk about it, get it out in the air, "pop the pimple" so to speak. Get it out, get it over with. Not everyone will be happy, and many will use words that hurt, tell you that your opinion does not matter, or not even say a word and make you feel like your opinion doesn't matter.
Now, I'm not talking about being a loud-mouth. I'm not talking about having a bad attitude and telling everyone off, from the mailman to your mother. But your beliefs are yours, they are you. Whether it be religion, politics, relationships, or your morals in general, hold firm to them. Stick up for yourself. Let the world know that you are unique in your thoughts and words. Always speak your mind, even if your voice shakes!!
