Does she even blog any more?

You don't have to send out the search team...I'm right here! And I made it. I made it through 3/15/07. I do have to pat myself on the back. I had a lot of phone calls and cards and emails which made the day so much better than it would have otherwise been. Although there were tears and "how did I get to this place?" there were also moments of "this is the path my life is taking now." I swear, every day, I am getting smarter (okay, just allow me that moment please).

Anyway, this week I am on spring break. WOOHOO....Amy Freedom Festival....uh not quite. I still had internship on Monday and tomorrow, but I am taking tomorrow (Wednesday) and Thursday off work and am going up to my parents house. It's like some quiet time and relaxation and time away from everything that could normally cramp up my day.

I already have an oil change, hair appointment and hopefully an eye appointment set up. Let's just say that I am catching up on all the things I don't have time for normally. Which is wonderful because I have parents to drive me around as well. Let me tell you, I drive about 2,000 miles a month for my job. I spend my life in the car. I live in my car. So when I tell you that I have parents who will drive me around....it's not that I can't do it myself, it's that I am SO SICK of the car that I need time to be the passenger and say "did you see that?" and "ooooo look at that ugly pink house." All those things I shouldn't be doing while driving (but secretly do anyway.)

My cousin has surgery tomorrow so I will be visiting him as well. Unfortunately, there is a lot of family drama going on (I just hate drama too....save the drama for your momma), and so my cousin really needs the support.

I had ordered the other two books in the Shopoholic series from www.half.com and they already got here. Usually with media mail they take longer, but this one actually didn't take long at all so I was really excited about that.

I'm also trying to figure out my summer and fall schedule for school and let me tell you....I AM STRESSED OUT! Who knew figuring out what classes to take so that I can get another piece of paper that tells me I'm qualified for something I don't think I am would be so DAMN exhausting??? Whew, I feel better now.

Okay, I'm off to get ready for the Freedom Festival. I'll be checking in on all of you while I'm gone. Enjoy the week!

Emily Giffin

Has anyone read the book "Something Borrowed"? Just wondering if you have or if anyone you know has. I want to get the book but was wondering if anyone recommended it first. Thanks :)

This and that....

Hello! Well, goofy girl gets the book! Just email me with your address and I'll send it out. I'm going to be getting the other books in the series. So if you like the first one, let me know and I will share the others!

Secondly, this week I have been attempting to stay very busy. It would have been my and my ex's 3 year anniversary tomorrow and 2 year anniversary of being engaged. So if I don't participate in the 13 tomorrow, don't be surprised. I'm going to be keeping myself VERY busy tomorrow and then possibly slowing down for the weekend ;)

I start spring break on Friday and I'm not doing anything extravagant. I'm going to be taking next Thursday off (I don't work Fridays) and going up by my parents for an extra long weekend. It'll be nice to just be away for a while.

What are your plans for this weekend? What do you do to try to stay busy?

A free book!

Well, thanks to island girl when I returned from my weekend away, I had Confessions of a Shopaholic waiting for me from winning her free book giveaway! I am happy to report that.....I LOVED IT! I read it in one night to be honest with you. It was so easy to read and kept my attention until the end. Now, I must warn you, this is a complete chick book! But since local girl was so nice to send it to me, I thought I would return the favor by giving it away to one of you!!! I plan on getting the rest of the set as well so if anyone out there has them and wants to pass them along, let me know!

So leave a comment with whether you want the book or not and I'll pick one of you randomly. I'll have someone pick a number or something--I'll think of something :)

Nothing much else is new here. Just work, school and internship. I'm trying to plan a vacation to Vegas and trying to talk someone into going with me. People just don't seem to have the money (not that I'm rolling in it, but I have my priorities....bills? nah....Vegas? YOU BET!! Just kidding!)

Anyway, how has your week been????

Hey, what's with all the pictures?

Well, I like them and because I like them....here's another one....

So what's new around here you ask? Well, I wonder a book from Island Girl !!!! I love winning things. Also, I have been having a couple hectic weeks with class, work and internship but I'm hoping this week things slow down just a little bit for me to enjoy life :)

What's new with you?

Little McDreamy's

Okay, I'll admit it.....I'm obsessed with Grey's Anatomy. BUT not only is McDreamy, well, McDreamy on the show, look at how adorable he is holding his new little McBabies (don't judge me for writing that!) His daughter is adorable too :)
