Friday Ramblings

~Yesterday I met reader "A" after work for a Pinkberry treat. "A" is a long-time reader and she was in town from Dallas, so she emailed me so we could meet in person. We had a great time getting to know each other and I also got to meet her sweet boyfriend. Thanks "A"! It was so much fun and I can't wait to get together again. Enjoy the rest of your trip! And--when you start your own blog I'll be sure to pass it along to everyone because I know it will be great!

~I bought
this dress on Jcrew final sale. It is oh so wonderful and comfy! Buy one today, I'm serious. I got the strawberry color and I really might go back and buy the other two.

~I've made a few ebay purchases--I'll share soon.

~Hubby is on a major, major, major project at work. He got called in on Sunday and worked until 2:30am, then 2:30am again on Monday, 1:30am on Tuesday, 4:00(freaking)am on Wednesday, and they let him off "early" last night at 11:30pm. I'm thinking he'll have to work all weekend until this deal is over. CRAZY!!

~The good news is we sign the lease on our apartment next week! The bad news is that our friends ,whose apt we are moving into, are moving back to the South today with their 3 week old baby. Such mixed emotions for me!

~I'm going to have to miss two reunions. Next weekend is my KD pledge class reunion at the beach. There were only 18 or so of us (we went to a very small private college in the South). Currently we're all quite busy! There are 2 of us engaged to be married in the next six months, 3 that just had babies, and 3 more that are pregnant...and probably a few more that will be pregnant soon! So much fun! It is also my high school 10 year reunion the next weekend after that at the beach and I'm not going to be able to make it. We just have too much going on right now and the tickets to go "home" are around $450-$500 a trip! We are going to try to make my husband's 10 year reunion in August. It will also be a good chance to go see his parents and so many of our close friends live there too.

~My bday is in less than a month (not that I'm counting).

~My Mom's 60th bday is in less than a month and I NEED to come up with a fabulous gift. She said she wanted to start a monogrammed
Tervis Tumblers collection for our beach house. Anyone know where I can order them for "cheaper."

~I need a haircut. I wish you could do more fun and exciting haircuts with curly hair, but if you go to short you end up looking like you have an Afro and if you go too long it just gets gross.

~No big plans for the weekend. I'm going to work on cleaning the apt and starting to sort through things. It's amazing how much junk we've accumulated in just one short year.

~I'm super bored at work today so if you write a comment you are welcome to ask me a question and I'll respond until 5pm EST. That should keep me occupied.

~Don't forget to sign up for The Palm Gifts giveaway. See below!

I hope everyone has a wonderful and relaxing weekend! Stay cool! TGIF!

Tervis Tumbles are pretty much the same price everywhere, especially if you are custom ordering them. tumblerstore.com does usually offer free shipping though.

I am glad you are doing well. Thanks for sharing the Starbucks coupon!

I hope you had a nice weekend!

I took down the Starbucks free coupon b/c they are no longer accepting it as of Friday afternoon. Sorry!
