Dear Blog...

...I know you think I have forgotten about you and I deserve the cold shoulder, I do. I understand you are upset with me. I've had a lot going on, and a lot on my I really hope you can forgive me.

My "assistant"-who's-not-really-an-assistant but has a rather long job title, is leaving me. Her hubby got a promotion and they are moving clear across the state. I've known for quite some time, but I've kind of been in denial. However, the end is near and I've been kind of depressed the past couple of weeks. No lie. Things seem overwhelming when I think about not having her! I've been interviewing, and I think I've got it down to the final two candidates, but I just don't want to make the wrong decision. See the little girl on the left? That's how I've been feeling. I just don't want to make the wrong decision and continue to feel that way...

I've also been feeling like this pouty little girl because last weekend, I dropped my iPhone. Talk about your day really going down the sure did, literally. Needless to say, it has not been working. I will be at the Apple store on Sunday morning when they open the doors. Fortunately, I'm eligible for an upgrade, they just wouldn't let me have it 8 days early. So I've been using my work Blackberry. I used to have a personal Blackberry, back before I had the iPhone, and I thought it was hot stuff. FUNNY HOW THINGS CHANGE. Wow. I feel like I've been without an appendage or something. Clearly, I'm too reliant on that thing...

Today I took a vacation day from work! Yay! Last night I talked to my hubby on the phone (gone for work again), and he said "you sound happy." I'm like...I have the day off tomorrow and it is NICE to have something to look forward to!!! Even though I have nothing I HAVE to do, of course, I have a list of things to accomplish.
1. Gym
2. Walmart
3. Mow lawn
(this is questionable as to whether or not it will happen...just sayin...)
4. Mani & pedi
(want to try this shellac nail stuff everyone keeps talking about!)
5. Buy a baby gift for a shower tomorrow
6. Go get a spray tan
This is my list, but of course I have "other" lists (i.e. things to get at walmart, calls to make, other household stuff to try to do...) If I do not stop blabbing I'll never get off my tail and go do I'm gonna go put on some of my under armour goodies and head to the gym! Otherwise my list will have no check marks for the whole day!

Don't forget about Pinterest. Always something there to make you smile! :)
Have a happy Friday lovelies!


  1. shellac manicure is the best! I got one a month ago and it still looks great. Def worth it.

    I need a spray tan too. Enjoy your day off!

  2. You'll make the right decision of course--it sounds like both candidates are great! hope you enjoy your day off to pamper yourself!

  3. Bummer about your iPhone. Did you try to place it in a bowl of dry rice? The IT folks at my company recommend that and I've heard it works well. Thankfully, I have't had to resort to that yet. Hope you find another great assistant. Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. I love that picture of the little girl, I have been feeling the same way lately!!! Hope you enjoyed your day off. I just started pinterest yesterday and I am ADDICTED!!! I just started following you! Find me under Sara Borg!

  5. Bahahahaha, I'm dying over that image of the dog!!

  6. I just discovered your blog while commenting on Nicole's blog. As a Kentuckian, I had to click on the bluegrass belle link! Very happy to have found your site. :)

  7. I saved my drowning iphone after letting it sit in a bag of rice for a day and a half- it sucks the moisture out! following you now :)

    Also, I have a giveaway going on at my blog for a $20 gift certificate to Green Apple Paperie if you're interested. They have super cute stuff!
