Not Me Monday

It's that time again, the time where we can write about all the things we "didn't" do this week and certainly "don't feel guilty for. After you get an eye-full of mine, don't forget to swing over to McMamma's to read what the rest of the blog world has to say!

This week I did not completely blow off Not Me Monday just because it was Memorial Day and I didn't feel like posting anything exceptionally clever.

I also did not spend all of last week counting down the hours/minutes/seconds until the weekend and I am almost completely positive that I won't be doing that again this week either.

I know that it wasn't me who upon hearing about her fabulous bonus has been dreaming up of all kinds of fantastic self indulgent ways to spend the extra cash instead of putting it towards her wedding. I would never do such a thing.

It most definitely wasn't me floating around my sister's pool all day on Saturday with no sunscreen- or me who peeled an old sunburnned spot raw- AND THEN proceeded to float around another pool all day Sunday without sunscreen again- thus reburning said spot. Nope wasn't me as I am always so careful about how I treat my skin and could so be the poster child for risk free from skin cancer.

It wasn't me who sacrficed a clean home in leiu of lounging at these pools all weekend. Its not my home that is habitat to piles of unwashed laundry, unmopped floors, and an overall unkempt appearance.

It's not me who is super excited for the launch of The Sims 3 tomorrow ,or me who will be playing all night tomorrow night, and even requiring dinner be ordered in so that I don't even have to cook. That would not be me!

None of these things even sound a little bit like me ... do they?

My next post will be my 100th... I want to make sure that it will be memorable so forgive me if I take a brief hiatus to get all of my ducks in a row. I'll be back in a day or two to regale you all with a magnificent post and I've decided, a give away to boot!

For Now...

Love & Kisses

So Far This Weekend Has Been...

So good!

Friday I got home from work at 6pm on the dot and Boo was waiting for me eagerly because I agreed  earlier that we could go to Verizon to switch our plan from Sprint and get new phones. 
Boo's contract is up this month and we agreed that eventually one of us would have to buy out of our Sprint if we ever wanted to get on a family plan with another company so yay... that gets to be me! But really there is no love lost - my new phone is, in a word- Sweet.

It took me about 15 minutes in the store to decide between the Curve and the Storm but I chose and I'm so glad I did : I went with the Storm and it is FABULOUS!

Mine of course has the pink hard case around it a: because I like pink and b: because Boo got the same phone and we need to be able to tell them apart of course! 

Afterwards we frollicked over to TGI Fridays and got yummy green bean fries (and dinner) then went home and played with our new toys- and they are toys- fabulously, functional, high tech toys. 

Saturday: I rose early and bathingsuitified and headed over to my sisters where I lounged on a raft and floated about in her wonerful pool. I even had lunch while dangling from the edge. It was great. Around 5:30 we all went to my other sister's house for dinner and family game night. 

I stomped them all in Dominos by over 100 points and then pretty much cleaned everyones clock in Shout About Movies too - what can I say when it comes to family game nights- I bring it. 

Today the plan so far is to head out with Jen to her brother's pool (I'm a summer pool hopper what can I say) and lounge there for a few hours- I'm just waiting on her to call. In the meantime I may run out and clean my car out- there is still much debris from our trip to Cumberland last weekend. 

Hope everyone else is having a good weekend! 

See You Soon!

P.S. I'm coming up on my 100th post and I know the "tradition" is to have a give-away:  I'm looking into it- I'm just a bit disenchanted with them right now- I won a giveaway several months ago and the owner of the blog failed to deliver- although to her credit she recently sent an email claiming she hadn't forgotten she just was busy. I don't want to do that to ya'll so I want to  be super sure I can follow through and that there are AT LEAST a handful of people who would enter to actually make it a contest and not just me sending a gift to Shawdee my only irl friend who reads. Anyway I digress, stay tuned is all I'm trying to say!
