A friend of mine turned me onto this site. It seems to search the net for freebies and sales. They have one listed for Tory Burch, Forever 21, Sohpora etc
Not sure how well it works etc, but I wanted to let y'all know about it

woah - how did it get to be 1.30am???

4 Turn Offs

4 mean people - I hate people that are unnecessarily mean. Keep your unkind comment to yourself, remember how you would feel if you were laughed at, and remember Karma's a bitch

3. blood and gore - Halloween is my favorite holidays but I dont like all the yucky stuff, the blood and the gore. I dont like being scared or hurt or seeing those sort of things happen to other people

2. friends who click "not attending" to invites on facebook without an explanation
Im not talking about something where you invite everyone you know, like a blood drive. I mean like a birthday party. If you cant come, tell me why. I will be a lot less hurt knowing your missing my birthday because you have a big test or your sister is getting married. But just not coming, no reason why, really hurts my feelings.

1. Not having extra money
When I was in college, I had a fun part time job which gave me a little extra money to get a new pair of shoes, or a top, just a few nice things on occasion. Now, I have to pinch pennies just to be able to afford decent food. I got myself a little part time tutoring a nice young man, but at $40 a week, it wont pay the bills.

Has It Really Been 5 Years?

5 years ago I graduated from this place -
and this weekend I will be going back to attend the homecoming game on friday and then my 5 year high school reunion here -
To say that Im excited about this event would not be true. I am more apprehensive then anything else. I wasnt super popular in highschool, but I wasnt a loser either. One thing I was was A LOT skinnier, like 150+ lbs skinnier. I am really nervous about seeing all these people I havnt seen in 5 years. Im nervous that they'll say something harsh or more then likely Ill just feel stupid.

Sitting here, I had flash backs to this movie
I know you all have seen it, and I know you remember it. Part of me wants to watch it in preparation for saturday. I also see a lot of things in common with this film. I wont be seeing much of this

But I will be seeing lots of these
I know, Im not in a rush to get married, but when it feels like everyone around me in getting married or is married, it plays on a girls heart strings. Just makes me want to be that happy.

I doubt this will happen

but you never know.

The biggest issues I have are these

  • I am unemployed, just like Romie and Michelle. But I promise I wont tell a soul that I invented post its ill come up with something else everyone knows like twitter. 
I have NOTHING TO WEAR and I have no $$ to buy something. Planning to raid my closet to find something tonight, or I'll just whip up something like this
and I promise to get a photo like this:

5 People Who Mean a Lot to me

5. My Parents
well my parents have been with me pretty much every day of my life. And if they wernt there, they were a phone call away. My parents worked very very hard. My dad went to the University of Michigan & my mom went to Cornell where they both majored in business type things. They both worked in corporate America for many many years to they could give me (and my siblings) the best things they could. I never wanted to anything. Even though they worked A Lot, they never missed a show, or a game, or a parent teacher night (even when they didnt have to go). They supported me when I dated the worst guys they could have imagined, and my Dad even took me to NYC when I got dumped. My mom, bless her heart, has never cooked a thanksgiving or Christmas dinner in her life, but she always makes sure were together on the holidays. My mom took my on a spring break trip in college when none of my friends wanted to go anywhere. They threw me my 21st birthday party, my 16th and bought me my first diamonds. I could imagine having better parents then them. I love you mom & dad

4. My Friend Bethany
Bethany and I met my 3rd year of college, 1st year at Georgia Southern. We meet at walmart, though a friend Ive had since high school. Bethany is not your typical college student, shes 34 years old. Shes been in statesboro since it was founded (or it seems to be that long). Shes like a momfriend. I dont know what else to call her. When I was surrounded by 18 year old girls with all their drama, Bethany was always there to do the grown up thing, to have lunch or martinis or something like that. She and I were always close, but we never realized how close we were until I moved away. She and I talk almost every day and I miss her so much. I cant wait to go see her in november, to just spend hours talking and gabbing and enjoying being around her.

3. My High School Theater Teacher
This photo doesnt do her justice. Bonnie is a 5'3 Jewish women from new york working at a private catholic school in the south. Its a sitcom waiting to be written. She works with father Dan, a priest at the school and her tech director is a nice young religion teacher. She has the only classroom without chairs, she is crazy and vivacious and I love her. She was my mentor and my adviser and my best friend in high school. I love going back and visiting her from time to time. She wants me to take over her job one day and maybe I will, who knows. She will sing at my wedding and be at my childrens baptism. This is how much she means to me.

2. Marie
Marie and I have a funny story about how we are friends. I went to an all girls school in SC for my first 2 years of college and I love love loved it. I had an amazing room mate and wonderful girls living on my floor. I adored all of them and I miss that life more then you know. Julie was my room mate and across the hall was Kelly and Marie and next door was Christina and Rosa. They we're my girls. Well Marie left after maybe 2 months of school. It was really hard but we had our goodbye and moved on. 2 years later I transferred to GSU and I lost contact with the girls from Converse. One day, randomly, I saw that Christina has 2 friends who went to GSU and I saw that the other friend was Marie. I messaged her right away and the rest was history. We have been super close ever sense. Marie is married to a navy officer and I was her support when he was deployed. I love this girl so very much and she is such a wonderful person and I love her so much, I just wish we lived closer together.

1. Y'all
My readers and my twitter girls. I really dont know how I would get through the day with out y'all. I have been going through a really hard time in my life and Ive been feeling really alone. I spill my guts out to y'all here and all I get is support. Y'all are kind, and up lifting and smart and wonderful and just the best sort of friends someone could ask for. Consider yourself hugged and thanked!

  • Cookies
  • Peanuts

Monday Blues

Hello Y'all

I just finished reading about all of y'alls wonderful weekends. Im glad everyone had such a wonderful time :)

I didnt have an exciting weekend. Actually, Im having a hard time remembering what I did. I do know one thing I did, I got Rhett Butler a new home :( a little girl got him as her birthday present. I didnt cry when I said goodbye but I cried all the way home.

When I got home I figured Id unpack a box (yes, I still have boxes I havnt unpacked). I opened one full of books so I was able to re-fill my book shelf. I also found a bunch of baby books I bought a few months back. Im not sure why I bought them, but now that my friend J is having a baby
So as soon as I get a little extra $$, Im gonna package up a bunch of these baby books and send them her way.

One thing I did do this weekend was start to arrange my birthday party
Im still trying to figure out the details, because there is like no information about the fair and the events online. I invited pretty much anyone in a 50 mile radius to this, so if you read this and you live in GA and you would like to join us for a night of fun, please email me! I would love to meet some of the wonderful people I blog with.

I also sent out a lot of mail yesterday, I mean A LOT! so check your mail boxes! :)

Blogging Chalange Day 5

Day 5: Six things you wish you could change or wish you would have never done.

1 - I wish I had been firmer when I told my parents I needed help coping with depression. I was about 8 and I remember leaving a note on my parents bed saying I was sad on the inside and I wanted to talk to someone about it. It never happened. I went on dealing with it until college. I remember the health center was hosting a depression screening and I took a test for fun, with my girl friends. I handed the test in and the counselor said she would love to meet with me and chat. I had a meeting with her every week for an hour. It was wonderful, and I miss her and being able to talk to someone like her. She really understood me. 

2 - I wish I had left Chase when I had the chance. I had been with him a few months and another guy asked to meet up with me. I ended up kissing Charlie and I really liked him, but I was in love with the idea of being in love with Chase and I told him. We broke up for a little bit and then got back together. I wish we had stayed broken up.

3 - I wish I had told my friends I was leaving Converse instead of just not going back. It was the only way to get away from Chase and the abuse and the unhappiness, but I should have called them, or written, or something. Because of it I lost a lot of good friends. I am only know trying to rekindle these friendships. 

4- I wish I had taken the chance to work at Disney my junior year in college. I was accepted into the Disney College program but I turned down the opportunity.  

5 - I wish I had taken a 13th year and gone back to europe when I had the chance. My parents thought it would be good for me, but as usual, I didnt listen to them and went strait to college. 
6- I cant think of anything else right now. Im sure there is plenty of things I wish or I should or If only, but the bottom line is that I did what I did and I am here in my life. Sorry if this post is too heavy, I've had a ruff week and I really ruff day. I found Rhett a new home, but his re-homing fee doesnt begin to cover the fines. I know this is just a ruff patch and things will get better, but it doesnt seem like it right now.

Day 4: Seven things that cross your mind a lot.
1. I need a vacation!
2. I'm broke :(
3. I need a job
4. I miss my college friends
5. I'm thirsty
6. Whats for dinner tonight? 
7. Do I need anything from walmart?


Hey everyone. Its JAB, B's boyfriend. Shes in the shower right now so I took this opportunity to post this on her blog. She loves all of you guys so very much. She's always bragging and talking about her twitter and blog friends. She's had a really tuft couple of weeks here lately so I wanted to do something nice for her.  B's birthday is coming up Oct 6 and shes very excited but not about turning 24. She's still new to this city so she doesn't have many friends here; most of her friends from college haven't been too supportive. So I'm asking all of you wonderful blog readers to send her some love on her birthday. It would mean so much to her to get cards from the people she loves so much. I know how much she looks forward to going to the mail box and seeing what mail she has, so this would be an amazing birthday present for her. Here's her address:

B. Schiller
361 Lovvorn Rd
Mandiville Mills Apt 208
Carrollton, GA 30117

Thank you all in advance for making her birthday special!

1. JAB
I just want to say I'm sorry and thank you. Thank you for putting up with all my mood swings and drama and issues for the last 6 weeks since I've been here in Ctown. I'm sorry things have been so difficult for me  being here, I never thought it would be this hard. I have faith that one day we will look back at this time and laugh and remember that its times like these that make us stronger. I love you so very much and I wish there was more I could do for you. I know your birthday wasn't a big deal, because I c0uldnt afford to make it really special, but I promise I will make it up to you :)
2. Mrs JAB (his mom)
I wish I was closer to you and your family. I am glad that you enjoyed your get well soon card and I hope that you really think I'm a keeper for your wonderful son JAB. I wish you would tell your daughter to stop being such a drama crazy bitch, and explain that as a married women with a  baby she shouldn't be doing the things that shes doing. I cant wait to meet you!

3. Mr UWG
To the ass**** who decided I wasnt worthy of the job at UWG I would like to tell you what a major huge mistake you made! You and your school really lost out by not hiring me! I hope that whoever you hired does a good job for the students sake, but they wont have the joy, the drive, the energy or the gumption I have! 

4. Mom
I know you went to an Ivy League college and got your degree in 3.5 years. You worked in corporate America for many years and you were an executive at a very young age. You bought your first car, a BMW at age 25 and you wore channel at least once a week. But I never knew you spent the first year out of college waiting tables. This little fact made me feel much better that I may be working a less then ideal job, but its ok because one day I will have everything I ever wanted (just like you do now). Also - thank you for raising me the way you did. I hope I make you proud

5. All My Married Friends
I cant believe that I have so many of you. I love you all so very much and in some ways I am really jealous of you, you have your prince charming, your happy, you had a big wedding (well one of you did) and now your living with the man of your dreams. There are many days that I wish I was in your shoes, but I am happy I'm not. I am not ready to be married. I am not ready to be settled down. I am still figuring out who I am and what makes me happy. 

6. My blogger/twitter friends
Y'all are amazing! I have always had a hard time making friends, and the ones I do never seem to be that good of friends. I have tried to maintain strong friendships with so many of them, but its really hard. I have never felt so accepted and welcomed and loved by anyone as I do with y'all. When I have a bad day, you are all so supportive and kind, and when I have a good day, your there smiling with me. I wish I could gather you all into a room with buckets of the best campaign and a massive meal so we could all just sit and chat and laugh and love being together! I plan to visit and meet as many of you as I possibly can!

7. Future Boss
I dont know who you are yet but I cant wait to meet you. I want to thank you in advance for giving me the position and to tell you that I will work hard and keep a positive attitude. 
8. Lilly Pulitzer
I am a newbi Lilly Lover and I adore all your things, the prints all make me happy and everything seems like its really high quality. My issue is the sizes, you dont make anything bigger then a 14/16. I am a plus size girl, and yes, Im trying to lose weight and get in shape, but I wont be a 12 for at least another 6+ months. I wish you would make your clothing in plus sizes (and this doesnt mean just going up to 16, but maybe to a 28. I know its shocking but us bigger women also want to wear cute, preppy clothes

9. Chase Crawford
The readers of my blog have no idea who you are or what you have done to me. I have nightmares, even 3+ years later, about you and the things you did. Every time I go to therapy they ask me where all the issues started and your name is what I say. I have to answer peoples questions when they see my ankle, watch the horror in their eyes as they try and wrap their mind around the story I tell me. Each time I start a new relationship I have to tell them about the horrors I have been through. I don't hate you, I despise you. I dearly hope and pray that you will never have a happy day for the rest of your days. I hope you suffer like you have caused me to suffer. A person like you should never call themselves a man, or even a human being. You don't deserve that respect. 

10. My 1st Blog Swap Partner
I want you to know that I think your a major Bit**! I was so excited to be a part of MRM's swap. I made up the cutest box for you and spent all the extra $$ I had to make it wonderful. I waited and waited and waited to receive my swap box but I never did :( I was so hurt and upset. I have considered sending you a note in the mail to tell you all these things, but Im not going to. Just remember karma's a bitch.
