My New Favorite Site

I know what I want for Christmas: a personal shopper. Well, not just any shopper, I want Lauren Lefevre from Edit by Lauren.

Here's Why:
1. Not only is she super sweet, she has always dressed amazingly.
2. I have too many clothes, most of which are cheap. My closet is a mess and most of the time I don't even know what's in there.
3. I want to get the "Edit Your Wardrobe" service:How sweet is that?? I LOVE this idea! I would offer to trade her for social media services for her company, however, she's got that down pretty good with company presence on social media (including a blog, facebook and Twitter). Which, by the way, you should check out her blog for latest fashion trends and deals: editbylauren.blogspot.com.

Maybe Santa will include her in my stocking this year!

Water, Water Everywhere

I can't remember the last time it rained this much in Atlanta!

Does Anyone Else Feel This Way?

There's something that has been bothering me for a while: I have no set group of friends. I mean I have friends, and very close ones at that, but I don't have a "group," per say. Because of the way I left things at Berry, I'm not considered to be "in" my group of friends there. It's still hurtful to look at pictures of people being in each others weddings, getting together at holidays, etc., and knowing that I would have been there but I'm not considered for those events anymore.

I have very close individual friends, but each of them have their own group that I'm not a part of. You know, the group that goes out drinking on Friday nights or gets a place down at the beach together during the summer. I know part of this has to do with being married (and with my husband being more of a loner) but it's still hard.

I would say my closest group of friends (as a group) would have to be my Spain friends (that I studied abroad with). I love them so much but I don't spend nearly enough time with each of them so we actually see each other rarely. I guess I'm just longing for that close group of friends that calls each other each week to see what's going on that weekend. I want to be a "default" person in a group. You know, like when everyone's going out on Thursday, of course you'd call Michaelanne because she's supposed to be there. I guess having had it before makes it all the harder when you don't have it.

Sounds kind of pathetic, doesn't it? It's actually pretty embarrassing to admit this because it makes me feel like a loser. Sad, I know, but it feels better to put my feelings down in words.

My Life is Crap

Ok, so my life isn't crap, not all the time at least. :) Anyway, one of my favorite blogs is mylifeiscrap.com. Here are some of my faves from recent posts. By the way, MLIC stands for "my life is crap."

- Today at the outlet mall I bought a new D-cup bra for my sister. I brought it to the register and the cashier just nodded her head and said “did you try this on, because I don’t think you can fill one of these cups, let alone both?”…MLIC

- Today I sold my best friend for $200 to pay the rent. I can’t believe how lonely I am without my dog…MLIC

- Today my mom called to wish me happy birthday. She went on and on about all the things she remembered about me as a child. Problem was it is my sister’s birthday, and all of the stuff she talked about was someone else, not me…MLIC

- Today I came home from work and my 32 year old husband was running around the house in his tightie-whiteys with a beach towel for a cape. If we had a kid it might be funny, but he was chasing the dog…MLIC

- Today I sent my 10 year old son off to school. I was so proud of his first day of 4th grade. I should say I was proud until the bus driver turned him around and sent him back off the bus. He handed me the rubber bracelet she made him remove. It said “I love boobies!”…MLIC
