LITTLE bit OF THIS -N- THAT

When you buy expensive sunglasses do you seem to lose them, or brake them, or does SOMETHING crazy happen to them within a few months of purchase?…. I can keep my cheapos 4 ever… I mean years!! But the moment I get designer shades poof something happens!

So I lost my Ray Bans that I just bought last month this past weekend!  [Sniff, sniff] I know I probably sound so materialistic right now, but I LOVED those sunglasses! ): ehhh,  life goes on right?

As for an update on all things recently…


-I finally told my boss that I got in to the Dental Hygiene Program, and that I would not be able to work full time- if any come August. I knew they would appreciate me letting them know months in advance, and they did.
I am glad I went ahead and told them! Things seem a bit more REAL now… like, I am really not going to have to work in the insurance biz for much longer!!!!…. THAT IS SOMETHING TO CELEBRATE ABOUT!

 
loving this clipart I found!^^^

Now I just have to get CPR certified, get a million vaccinations, and get a physical. Then I’ll be all set to start this new chapter of my life! August couldn’t come sooner!



...I AM SUPER EXCITED...

that my girlfriend Tami is helping me re-design my blog!! She has gained quite a bit of experience in designing her own blog in the past year, and I think we have similar taste so I CANT wait to see what she has up her sleeve. We should be debuting the new look within the next few weeks!! Check out Tami and her cute blog here…

...SURPRISINGLY...




I dont think I have mentioned here that I am going to be an Aunt come next month!!! My little sister Chloe is having a baby boy! Little Rivre (pronounced River) is due May 26th!! I have bought a few random things here and there for the lil man, but I wanted to get Chloe something that I knew she wouldn’t go out and buy herself. Something that would make a new mom's life a bit easier. There are so many cool gadgets out there that do just that, its a bit overwhelming!! I finally came to a decision to get her one of these….

She starts school in August and will be doing online classes at night. I figure with this thing she will be able to get some work done, and still keep a close eye on her lil man while he sleeps! Ahh, can’t wait for him to get here ALREADY!
Here is Chloe at 7 1/2 months! Isnt she cute?


I am using her as my ginny pig for when we have kids... I imagine that our pregnancies will be somewhat similar. Mike and I dont plan on having any little ones in the near future but sooner than later its going to happen!

...AS 4 THIS PAST WEEKEND...

A crew of us went out to The Azelea Festival in Wilmington.


it was packed!!



so we stopped to have a drink on the balcony of Fat Tony's...


at night fall, the fireworks display took place... we had a perfect view!

Lots going on in that post. Lol.

I have lost a pair of Chanels... I was upset for a WHILE about that. And my husband has lost an older pair of Oakleys once. I understand the pain.

And YAY!!! Congratulations on getting into the Dental Hygiene Program!! And for your sister. I hear ya about ginny pigging someone. All my mommy friends out here are my ginny pigs. Lol.

I'm glad you had a good weekend! Looks like a lot of fun. Anything that involves lots of people, fireworks and booze is a good time in my book.

I bought a pair of D&G glasses back in 2009 and last year my husband accidentally stepped on them and broke them. I almost cried..almost.

YAY for you being an Auntie soon!

Your weekend looks amazing and lots of fun.

I NEVER buy designer sunglasses because my $5 ones always end up missing, broken or scratched. but I'm sorry you had to go through that!
