Friday Fill-in

1. Sundresses is/are my favorite summertime clothes.
2. My favorite John Hughes movies is Pretty in Pink.
3. My MAC brushes is/are something I love to touch.
4. The full moon was supposed to be out last night or tonight. (I can't remember when)
5. I'm at the doctor's office right now. (I'm annoyed to be here again!)
6. When daylight fades it's night time.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to movie night with Jas, tomorrow my plans include some tax-free shopping and Sunday, I want to go eat brunch!

Life has been strange this week. I have spent days at the doctor. I don't have any answers. And I am annoyed to no end. The only good thing that I see in my immediate future is the tax-free weekend. That and date night with Jas tonight. I haven't had to use any of my leave at work because they are installing a new AC unit. And the bank has been closed since Tuesday. We are supposed to re-open on next Wednesday. It's all good. Paid vacation. Because it is not our fault that the AC keeps breaking. That's it. I should go. I am waiting at the doctors. Maybe I will get some answers today. :)

What Happened Jr???

Lola and I decided to up our bet from last week. Whoever's driver finished better this week would get a good prize. Almost like double or nothing. On the line was dinner, a ice cream cake from Cold Stone, $25 gift card from Sephora, $25 gift card from MAC, and a mani-pedi. Oh dear! Racing Gods please help Dale Jr.

The weekend didn't start well. The rain came and qualifying was washed out. Things didn't look any better on Sunday. Unfortunately, the race was delayed until Monday. I set my Tivo Monday morning and went to work. I prayed that our weekly meeting would end quickly. And maybe just maybe, my client would cancel their appointment.

No such luck! But I had my computer on the leader board. And out of the corner of my eye, I was watching the live leader board. The race looked boring. And I later found out, it was boring. I skipped through Tivo tonight to watch the race highlights. Dale Jr. started P22 and finished the race P27. I'm not sure what happened there. He went from racing in the top 10 to P27 in just a handful of laps. Super G started P3 and finished P8.

I still don't know what happened. Here I was all excited that Jr. was doing well. Then he finished the race P27. Lols won the bet again. Jr. is now sitting P21 in the standings. Racing Gods.....are you out there? Do you remember Dale Jr? Can you throw him a bone? Please help him do well for the rest of the season. I've had fun with mine and Lols bets, but I think I am going to have to wait a few weeks to bet again. :)

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to dinner with Jas, tomorrow my plans include shopping for babies and Sunday, I want to watch Dale Jr take the checkers! :)

An Unexpected Vacation

OK people, hold on! Yes, it is me posting again this week. I know. But the AC at work went out again. They decided that we can't do our regular bank business. We have the next few days off. Yay! Paid vacation until next week. This girl couldn't ask for anything better!

What wise things have I done since noon when I left my office? I called Zio's and ordered lunch to-go. Went to the mall. Because who doesn't want to shop? Actually I had to stop by MAC and pick up some Fix+. Trolled by DQ and picked up an Orange Julius. Then went to Zio's to get my lunch. How about that? All in under 30min.

Then I made it home just in time to watch my favorite soap.....GH! Love me some GH! I secretly wish to be rich so I can afford a wardrobe like the stars. Lately Maxi has been wearing the best clothes ever! Ever! But what was up with all the purple today? I know that purple is all the rage this season. I even had a purple blouse on today. But every scene had 2-3 characters in purple. The color is pretty, but really what was up with all the purple? Peeps do you have any idea? I wish I knew.

I also sat my rear end down and started to watch last weeks episodes of GH. I had them Tivo'ed and hadn't watched them yet. I am so into this story plot. Spinelli and Maxi are too cute! What a couple! And I can't get over the set design lately. Inspiration for the house. Lols.....are you reading this? Inspiration for my house!!!

Sonny's kids are becoming ridiculous! I can't believe how they went from toddlers to teenagers in a month. What the heck happened? Kristina is getting on my last nerve. And I really don't like this new Michael. The red head was better. Poor little Morgan reminds me of a mini mobster kid that is always getting picked on. And I feel so bad for Claudia loosing her baby. Why couldn't it have been Carly? Whatever! I am cheering for the brunettes from now on.

The Rebecca character is just strange. I miss sweet Emily. I swear. GH killed all the good characters off at once. There was Emily, Georgie, and Courtney. I'm sure I am forgetting more. But those are the ones I miss! But I know this show will continue to change. I would like to see more of the Robin story line. And Sam's. I really like Sam. I hope her and Jason get back together. I am totally a Jasam fan!

Those are the productive thoughts going through my head. I have been home for hours. Yes hours! All I have done is put on my workout shorts. Yes people I still have my work blouse on with all my jewelry. The only skirt is on the floor, my shoes are next to it, and my hair is now in a messy bun. I did manage to eat lunch.....and a chocolate bar. I think I am also PMS-ing. Just by the simple fact that I have had 3 chocolate bars today alone! And I have watched 3 episodes of GH.

Jas will be home in a bit. The doggies are sleeping. And I am ready for a nap. What a vacation! Tomorrow looks more promising. Let's hope that it is more productive than this afternoon. I'm thinking Costco. I could get all domestic and make dinner for Jas. We'll see what tomorrow brings! :)

Bachelorette Fashion Finds

So peeps.....I did it! I watched the finale to the Bachelorette. And I'm not sure why. I haven't watched a single episode. But I think I should have. The gals at work have been going on and on about Jillian and her fashion. But I was pretty tired of the Bachelor/Bachelorette series since no one ever gets married! Ever! Except Trista and Ryan. But Jillian's style rocks! Can her stylist become my new BFF?

I am watching. Not so much for the story line, but because I love her clothes. I have no clue what is really going on. Or who she should pick. But these leaf shaped earrings. OMG! Where can I find a pair? They are big and fun. I want a pair so bad!

Then the moment that everyone is waiting for. The final rose. And I can't stop looking at this gorgeous pink dress. I will sell my new TV for that dress! Yes, that pink gown!!! I want it so bad. Yet, I have no clue...absolutely no clue where to find it. I would actually get married in it. Forget about the white dresses that I have been looking at. I want THIS pink one!

Wouldn't you know it. The season that I don't watch happens to be the most stylish! I could kick myself. But I think it was a blessing. Because I could just see myself falling in love with all of Jillian's clothes and jewelry. Had this been a few years ago.....I would have nominated myself to be the next Bachelorette. Just for the clothes, shoes, and jewelry! :)

Can't the Guy catch a Break???

It's been a tough weekend for Dale Jr. The poor guy was sick as hell. But he qualified well. He qualified P3. It was looking like the team was making a turn for the better. In fact, today he was running good. Sitting in the top 10. Then at lap 127 he blew up. He didn't blow up, the engine in the AMP #88 blew up! Ended the day with a DNF. In P36. Yes, a DNF. Can't the guy catch a break?

In better news, JJ won the race. Super G kicked some butt and went from qualifying P22 to finishing the race P9. Yes, I lost the bet with Lola. But that's OK. I just want to have lunch with my friend. And Mark "The Kid" Martin ended his day in P2. I secretly wanted him to win after Jr's day was over. What can I say? But it was a pretty good day overall for the HMS camp. Racing Gods send Jr some luck. Pretty please! :)

Disappearing Blog

My big bro called me earlier. Wondering what the heck has happened to my blog. I have no clue! Bro talk to me. Heck I didn't even know you read my blog regularly! I guess not all of my posts are showing up. I don't know where to begin to fix this. Stay tuned and I will try to find out. Big bro, don't fret. I will fix my blog! :)
