missed connections

Am I the only one that hadn't heard of the Missed Connections section of Craigslist??

This is hilarious! I was blown away by how many people actually post an ad out for people who possibly "slipped through their fingers".

I'm not gunna lie... I was hoping I would match one of the descriptions! not cuz I'm crazy and desperate haha but because that would be just about the funniest thing ever! mine would've read...

"We caught each other's eye in Sam's Club last Tuesday. You were eating a churro by the free samples kiosk and I was browsing through the beef jerkey selection. I noticed you brushing sugar off your chin and I'm pretty sure you winked at me. If you are interested meet me @ Mi Tortilla at dawn!"

oh good times! One could dream :)

I know, I know... it's been awhile! but get over it. and I promise this was suppose to go out on Thursday haha

This tip is for all you world travelers!!

I did not realize until last week how many AMAZING deals there are for last minute traveling.

From cruises to airline tickets to hotels to shows... I'm telling you, you can get hooked up if you know where to look.

Here are some incredible sites to check out whenever you get the bug to get out:

  • (specifically the "Top 20 Deals" section)

  • (friends of mine actually own this company, so hit it up)
  • (as if Shatner as the negotiator wasn't reason enough to go to the site)

those are just a couple, but seriously... vacation is a necessity, especially in this work-aholic, fast paced, and stressful society we live in.

Live it up friend,

Bon Voyage

It's 9:27 and I'm sitting in my house on my couch (directly in front of the fan bc its an oven in here). I have had one of the longest, exhausting weekends that I have had in awhile.

Brief summary:
  • rear-ended a car
  • 6 hours of bridal shower invitation making
  • 7 hours of painting in the blazing sun
  • worked crazy overtime all weekend
  • late late nights and early mornings

Its only by the grace of God that I'm not getting sick and that I didn't break down.

I actually stayed consistently energized the entire time... just had to keep in mind that Monday I would be getting on a boat and doing NOTHING for 5 days! and by nothing, I mean nothing!

I just want to sit, eat, and enjoy the sun. No replying to emails, no decision making, no appointments, the only calendar item that i will be paying attention to is my 6:30 dinning time.

I am super excited too that I am going with my grandma. She is amazing person that I haven't been able to spend much time with lately :( It is never a full moment when she's around!

This whole trip came together in the past 4 days... I had no idea last week that I would be leaving for a cruise... God bless Carol! (the wonderful Carnival Cruise lady on the phone) who spent 30 minutes with me making this work last minute.

My life rarely sees spontaneity such as this and I am loving it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think that's enough said about this. :)

Bon Voyage my friends!!!
