What T.V. characters would be your friends in real life?

The gals over at Somewhere in Between are discussing something very interesting. If the people from your fave TV shows were real- who would you really be friends with?

I liked the idea so much that I thought I would share who I think would be my bffs!

Penny of The Big Bang Theory

We would get along great because we both know what its like to be around guys who are complete dorks- though completely charming and although initially we could care less about the nerdisms that are cherished by our closest guy friends- every now and then we find our selves sucked right on in and displaying a few of our own nerdisms. We would totally get each other's position in life (much like Shawdee and I do!)

Bridget Marquardt of The Girls Next Door and Bridgets Sexiest Beaches

Ok technically this is cheating...she's a real person - but I've said it before and I'll say it again Bridge and I would be BFFs for life if we met ( and maybe were a bit closer in age).
We both love to dress up, wear bright colors, Halloween, throwing parties, decorating, and getting super, squealy excited over things that most people probably don't think are really that exciting.

Margene of Big Love

She's the youngest of the wives and constantly finds herself fighting to find her place and to be taken seriously - something I am all to familiar with. Its hard to be young and have lots of responsibilities and I could totally relate to that. She's also pretty darn perky and optomistic and I like that.

Of course there would be more I really had to think of them but I won't bore you with the details.


Looking back over the pictures I realized I must want to start my own blondetourage- all that blonde hair! Oh well- birds of a feather!

Fa-reaking Out

So I've just come to the conclusion that this wedding - at least the way that I have invisioned it, is going to be next to impossible to realize unless one of our families steps in and becomes a financial benefactor (and I can already tell you it aint gonna be mine).

That, or we sacrifice our savings and 401 k's for a freaking party.... cause that's what it is ... one big freakign party where you shell out the mucho dinero for 150 of your "closest" friends and family to eat, drink, and be merry.

In what sick twisted world does anyone actually want to do that?!?!?

Financially we're in a good place - to finish paying off debt, build credit, and buy pretty things- but pay for a wedding- uh no.

So here I am ladies. I've officially reached the point where the wedding is still eons off- but I've realized that I actually have to pay for it.


Anyway. I have stuff and things to do- I actually need to do work to keep income coming.
See you later bye.

Double Edged Sword

On the best days coming in to work is like coming home to your grandparents house. The residents are happy to see you, hugs & kisses abound, compliments are thrown like beads at Mardi Gras, and everyone is pulling candy from pockets to begift you.

On the worst days co-workers are catty, no one is happy, and everyone is in your business that doesn't belong there.

Seems as though if I didn't have co-workers I would have the perfect job huh?

So maybe I should start thinking seriously about becoming an Executive Director someday- I mean like Elle Woods said; "If you can't make the fabric work for you, change it".

Of course I don't think that moving to the top level will immediately cease cattiness and jealousy but I am a firm believer in becoming the change that you want to see in the world and maybe that will be my calling.

Or maybe not. I'm not ready for that step now and it will be a long road not just a step up - it would take many, many steps and probably a cease to the blogging at work..... but as a thought maybe someday when I'm a grown up that's what I'll do.

Anyhow first day back to work after 5 days off has been 50-50 but I'm hoping to shift into gear here soon and make it a great day, not just an ok day.

So on that note.....

Later Gators!

Much Better

Last week Jess came to visit as you already know. While she was here my hair looked a hot mess:


Just wanted to share that I did have an appointment with another stylist at my salon and it went wonderfully!


Much Better!

Birthday pictures to follow!
