The dress options….

Please remember this is a beach wedding. :)

Obviously some are more casual than others, but I might just keep a couple as cover ups/cute tropical vacation clothes. :)

Feedback people, I need feedback. My Victoria’s Secret dresses will be arriving today, the other one probably Monday. Granted, some might not fit, so if the overwhelming response is one of the ill-fitting ones, I might be hard pressed to get the right fitting size here in time. Pressure!

A post with no purpose.

I don’t really have anything to blog about right now, but I feel I should blog since it’s Thursday and…I’d like to try and blog every day.

I’ll give a summary of my yesterday. I worked pretty hard all day, and then right around 3:30 or so, I dumped a decent portion of my hot chocolate all over my keyboard. I spent a good 15 minutes trying to sop it out and clean it up. I can smell old hot chocolate right now. It’s kinda gross. If I could just get a Mac…. Anyway, I worked until 5 or so, hopped on the train and went home. It was SO FREAKING COLD yesterday. The hubs and I decided on a frozen pizza and dinner in front of the fireplace. It was super cozy. Miles the cat laid down on me around 9pm and we both dozed off until 10 or so when I watched the news. Then we watched Leno, Letterman, and then Conan. Conan had a beard. So did Letterman but I don’t like him as much. It was a wonderful night.

Another random fact – 2 weeks from Sunday I leave for Costa Rica for our delayed honeymoon, and my good friend L’s wedding. SO EXCITED. I bought Costa Rica books and a “Costa Rican Spanish” pocket book. We’ll be there for 8 days. It’s going to be AWESOME. Monday, I ordered 5 dresses online for possible choices for L’s wedding. Four from VS and one from Zumiez. :) Yeah, I’m a 14 year old girl. Anyway, I intend on sending all but one of them back. (Please note intend is in italics. For a reason.)

Also, I bought these shoes on Tuesday. Again, I am a 14 year old girl.

I always wish I could be more of a girly girl, or be more…”adult,” but I keep buying tee shirts and sneakers and never buying heels or fancy clothes. I’ve sort of come to the realization I’m just not going to be one of those girls, ever. I’m having a hard time accepting it, but I’m getting used to it. Someday, I’ll unpack my shoes and give a grand total of sneaker to fancy shoe ratio. :)

Alright, that’s it for my Thursday ramblings. Good day.

Thanks, guardian auntie. :)

Category blog bidnass, please and thank you

My favorite aunt-in-law just pointed me in the direction of this New York Times article about blogging and your employer.

And, so that I can ease my mind and continue to blog as usual, I’m pulling some of my work related blogs down. Although some of them I love – better to be safe than sorry. :)

Happy New Year!

I only have a couple moments before a department meeting, but I thought I’d throw that out there.

I hope everyone had a safe & fun NYE. Mine consisted of Cheesecake Factory takeout, “28 Weeks Later” on pay per view, Dick Clark (who made me want to cry – I’m so proud of him!), champagne and Bubble Bobble (circa 1980s) on the Wii. All from the comfort of our new house. It was nice.
