Tonight was our monthly girls night out and there were only 2 of us this time. We had our M&M's (Mexican and margarita) and then onto our restaurant for coffee.
We have a very busy/ popular place which is about to get even more so with some huge groups that are coming into our smallish town.
August is never one of my favorite months because we are so busy with these groups, school and the fact that it is always so hot and humid which makes everyone cranky.
This year will be worse with trying to pack Ashton for school and move him in plus getting Nick ready for band camp (8-8 every day next week and then 7am every morning once school starts)
Ok, I am done complaining.
The tree necklace that some of you liked so much can be found other places, I Googled "tree necklace" and found it here.
I was reading some blogs today and they were talking about the Blogher convention in Chicago and I thought about how fun it would be to go and meet some of my new blog friends but I am such a small fish in such a big blog pond- I would feel silly.
Some people get thousands of comments a day and although I am sure that is nice, there is no possible way to read them and then answer them back.
I have 45 followers and the same 10 people comment all of the time. They are the comments I look forward to because I feel like you know me and care enough. There are times when I read a blog and want to comment but there are 28 or 67 or 200 comments and I think that nobody would even care what I have to say so I am working on this.
Now for the fun part: while my sisters and I were shopping the other day, I had plenty of time to ogle and sniff and spray and poke around and I came across some fabulous finds.
White Citrus body wash/lotion/ spray from Bath & Body Works.
Fresh, summery and it reminds me of a different version of my favorite perfume Clinique Happy (I have worn it many years and I never tire of it- I also love Happy Heart)Satsuma oil from The Body Shop.
My sister had it burning in her new home the other day and it was lovely.
I had to run out and buy a bottle.
I still love my Pier One Fresh Fig but this is a totally different scent so I am not cheating on my Figs. The Tobacco Flower was also yummy.
My sister gave me an oil burner like this one (thank you J!!)
I plan to buy one for every room.
My tree necklace. I am in love with it.
I want to wear it every day.
My gladiator sandals. They go with everything and they are comfortable. And they were half price.
And last but not least, the new Uggs. (I did not get them but they are on my list)
Because I detest winter and I love to be warm.
The new striped cable knit and Bailey Button boots make me happy.
Do you hear me cute husband? Happy.
And a happy wife is a generous wife.
Now I want to know what you love.
Joke of the day:
A woman finds out that her husband was in a horrible accident so she rushes to the hospital.
The doctor calls her in and says to her "I am so sorry to tell you this but your husband is brain-dead"
She looks horrified and then says to him "oh no! we have never had a Democrat in the family before"
(I heard enough Bush jokes through the years, get over it people)
What did the snail say when he took a ride on the turtles back?
