Did you know it is such a nice and sunny day outside? Oh wait, I have no idea because there are no windows in here.

Being stuck in an office day after day which contains no windows is the pits.  We live/work in the dungeon.  We even had that earthquake this week and I paniced a little, knowing that I couldn't see outside of that damn basement office room.  I think I may invest in one of these are each of my coworkers in the dungeon.

Ouch! This is hot!

I recently bought my boyfriend this cute Pac Man pot holder as he didn't have a pot holder and this one was very snazzy.  Check it out.  Even picked it up at target in their new cool section of type things.

Summer Summer Summer Time

Alright, yes. It has been awhile. I've been a little distracted you could say :)
Saw this cute print tonight and wanted to post it.  It may be a little late into the season, but I leave tomorrow for my best friend's wedding and then a week at the beach, so to me summer vacation is here!

Flip Flop Swap- Mission Accomplished

A few posts ago, I wrote about participating in a Flip Flop Swap which was organized by Lyryn.  I was given my swap partner, Katy.  I checked out her blog to get a sense of what she may like..but as always I have major anxiety over buying things for people in doubt that they will not like it.  I found many different flipflops early on and kept telling myself that I would find something I liked more.  Life went on and I almost FORGOT!  I'm one of those people who will worry about a meeting all morning and then the 15 minute reminder pops up and I dismiss it and then totally forget about the meeting until like 5 minutes late.  So I ran to the mall after work one day and told myself I would indeed PICK a pair that day.  I had scoped out some choices online but decided to hit up Journey's (not sure why I chose that store, as I normally do not frequent the adult store..usually just the kids one for my niece Sarah).  I found a pair that I liked but they didn't have her size 8.  So I looked around at this one pair and thought about it.  They looked super comfy and they were a little different....they had some metallic gold interwined with an otherwise plain flipflop.  So I made the decision and bought them. I went and got a cute pink box to send them in, but turns out the the post office (of course..) destroyed the box, but the good thing was that the flipflops made it okay. 
Funny thing is that we received our flipflops on the same day.  Katy had emailed me to say that she lives pretty far away from a good store and ordered them online and I should be looking for a package from  I was so excited to open my box when it did arrive!  Check em out! 

Super comfy and can go with anything. I wore them to work on Friday! Now I just need to work on my tan (from a bottle of course).  Thanks Katy for my flipflops! Hope you liked yours as well!!

Now I'm ready for another swap!  Lemme know if you know of any going on!!

Tee Shirt? T-Shirt?

I'm a tshirt and jeans kind of girl.  So when I found these plain tshirts at Target last year I was super excited and bought tons of them.  I called them the boyfriend T.  Vneck with a little pocket.  Awesome tshirts and super cheap.  To get to the point, I crossed my fingers and hoped that when I walked into target recently I could find more of these same tshirts.  SCORE! Found them and they were on sale for $6 each.  So I scooped up about 6 of them.  Of course the classic white and then a few colors.  I really like to throw them over your swimsuit when you're at the beach with some shorts if you don't want to do the cover up every day.

Badge Holder

To go along with my work theme, here is a cute badge holder.  I tend to break my badge holders frequently. Thought this was a different twist on a badge holder.  I like it! I may just get it for myself.

Work Shirt

I found this shirt at New York and Company a few weeks ago and wore it to work.  At first I thought it made me look preggo (which I'm note) but it was super comfortable.  I got to work and got many compliments on the shape of it.  So I went back and got two more.  I now have the purple stripe, blue stripe and a black and white design one.  And they always offer great coupons and good sales.

Sweat Much?

So as most people who are close to me or who just read my fb page every now and then probably know that I got botox yesterday.  No, my face is not going to be wrinkle free, but my armpits will!
I've suffered from the medical condition can read more about it here.  I never really even knew it was considered a medical condition, I just thought that I had a sweating problem.  If I remember correctly, this started in middle school/early high school.  Until this week, I've worn 2 layers at all times and I never dared to wear a shirt that was a color.  I lived in a black and white world.  I would sweat so much that at one time I could sweat through a jacket. Gross I know..but imagine what it feels like.  Not only the physical discomfort of having soggy armpits all the time, but the fact that you never wanted to raise your hand up and you had to make sure that you always kept your arms at your side in fear that someone would see your sweat stains.  I always envied girls who wore grey shirts or a bright color and could wave their arms around "like they just don't care".
 A girl I went to college with happened to see my one picture in the 30 day photo challenge of Fergie with huge sweat stains for "my biggest insecurity" and messaged me to tell me she had that same issue and was approved by her insurance for botox. 
So I decided it was time.  I made a dermatologist appt and went and he didn't even do an exam, from explaining to him that I've used clinical strength, men's deodorant, arm pit pads, tissues, certain dri...nothing works!  Do you know how embarassing it is when you have a tissue fall out of your shirt??!!  So he sent in the prescription, and I waited.  I found out about 2 weeks later that I was covered.  It would be about $180 for one treatment.  Woohoo! I was thrilled.  So I went yesterday to get it done.  I was quite nervous that I would have multiple needles inserted into my armpit! That can't be fun.  In all honesty, it wasn't bad at all.  I'd go back every day and have them do that if I didn't have sweaty pits all the time.  So he told me it takes 3 days to a week to become effective and then should last 6 months.  I'm really excited to see how it works. and one of the major things I'm really excited for is that I am wearing a royal purple dress in my best friend's wedding in Wisconsin at the end of July and I was soooo nervous for the sweat marks and now **cross your fingers** I shouldn't even have to worry about it at all.  I suggest if you have any issues like I do, then you look into botox as an option.  btw..I was given 3 options.  #1 botox, #2 a pill that dries up all bodily secretions, #3 surgery to snip the nerve (noooo way)
Here's to Grey Tshirts in my near future!!

Strawberry Shortcake Banner

My niece turns 4 next month.  Every year we have a party here at my parent's house and I usually take over (because I'm insane like that) planning the party and my sister-in-law is nice enough to let my craziness with planning things play out. 
This year Sarah said she wanted a Strawberry Shortcake theme...even though she had that theme for her 1st birthday but she was too little to most likely remember anything. 
I saw this sign on etsy and might get it...or try to make my own. Super cute.

This entry is a little different than my normal, "hey I found this it is cute" posts.  I finally needed to make a post about  So I've been on there for awhile now, meeting a few nice people who I just didn't click with but I also have a close friend who is on there as well. And we have found that there are people out there who blow your mind.  People never cease to amaze me.  Hope some of these make you laugh.
Hi there,
I know that that is a weird subject line and a strange way to introduce myself but I find this strange to begin with. Really, How socially awkward has our society gotten when 2 single people have to exchange emails as a way to get to know each other. Please don't tell me I am the only one that thinks this strange? But now a days in this strange new world of social networks of 300+ "friends" half which don't really know each other I guest this is the social norm.

Well, back to the point of the email, I saw your profile today and you sound like someone that I might connect with. You actually sound normal. Well, at least your profile makes you sound normal.

Anyway,l email me back and I will be glad to get to know you better

My thoughts- umm hello I'm on an online dating site as well so obviously I am okay with it.....and I'm glad that I'll be priviledged for you get to know me better...and I'm glad that I actually sound normal
Hey hows it goin ? Im Jared and i suck
at this lol. Im a way better communicator
face to face then writing what I want to
say. Im a great guy with a big heart and
amazing Sense of humor. I am over weight
but i go to the gym 5 days a week and
have a real drive to lose it. Im looking for
the that girl that wants to be treated like a
queen and Don't mind that there partner
isnt a jersey shore situation. Im looking for
a chance. So if u have any questions ask

My thoughts- why are people so negative in a first email?  save that stuff for the future
Sorry I don't have a pic on here but I could send you a bunch via email. Or text. Just a idea. Hope I'm not being a bother by sending u this email

My thoughts- why can't you just post a picture if you are going to send them anyway???
Hi ...My name is MIKE.....I joined match like a week ago and taking it slow.....I am a fun person and nice and very funny too....I do look good....However my employer is strict and they tend to fire people for being on FB or being online too.....thats why I havent posted pics yet.....If u want, I can email some pics over today
My thoughts- this was my fav one...he sent me this exact same email like 2 months before and had also sent the same email to my friend a month before that...3 months atleast buddy not a week ago.

I started smiling when I saw this on perpetual kid.  My coworkers from Siemens back at Trinity will remember this.  BANANA PHONE!  Except this one does not involve an actual rotten banana taped to an deskchair arm pad.  Ohh the days of Trinity.
