The Royal Wedding

Yes, I was totally up this morning watching the wedding.  And am still watching right now.  Princess Kate is GORGEOUS, and the Princes are so HANDSOME!  I didn't realize how much William looks like his mom.  And, I didn't realize how built Harry is.  Awwww!  I wasn't expecting to be so excited about it, but I am.  I apparently am a closet royal-watcher.  :)

Living life in absolutes

Is that even possible?  My brother in laws, and my father in law and I were having a discussion about this over Easter.  I see so many shades of grey, and options, and reasons, that I can see both sides to most issues.  My brother in law stated that he sees everything in black and white- no grey.  He doesn't believe in most things I believe in, that's fine, but he won't even see where I'm coming from, or admit that there might be a different viewpoint.  I just don't understand- in his mind, it's either right or wrong, black or white.  The death penalty- no extenuating circumstances.  Abortion- no extenuating circumstances. 

I can't live like that.  I cannot.  I feel that's an immature way of looking at the world, because there are so many things that could turn out differently, and change minds.  And what you thought was your absolute way of looking at the world turns out to be, while not completely wrong, definitely not what you thought it was.

I freaking HATE CVS!!  They suck!  I had to fill a prescription, and it's an automatic refill, so I normally get a call, then I know I need to get over there and pick it up.  Didn't get one this month, and my supply runs out tomorrow.  So no biggie, I call, it's ready.  I'm running to the library anyway to return books, so I'll just swing by and pick it up.  I get there, it's ready, but my insurance is jacked for some reason.  So I'm told to 'circle' and they'll get my information from insurance.  I was also given the option of coming in and sitting, as it would only take a few minutes.  I chose not to go in or circle, and I told the pharm tech that I would be going, and coming back later.  Forty minutes later, I get a phone call, oh, we got your information all settled, etc.  In what universe is 40 minutes a few minutes later?  So then, as I'm talking to whomever called me back, I calmly told her that I would be switching pharmacies, as this was not the first time I've had crap-tastic service from CVS.  She couldn't understand why I was switching- Really? what part of craptastic service are you having a hard time comprehending?  And, I am currently waiting on a call back, as I requested, as I have to make a special trip out there either today or tomorrow, for a free prescription.  It's been almost 15 minutes so far, so we'll see how long it takes before they call back.

ETA: They actually did call back, and comped me my medicine.  I'm still not thrilled with them, however, and still have every intention of switching. 

Really good weekend....

Yay!  Happy Easter, y'all!  We had a really good weekend, I did have to work on Saturday morning, and then had to drive up north, but overall, it was a good weekend.  We showed off our new vehicle, and the people that mattered were impressed.  The people that didn't were jealous.  And that just is funny to me.

So I completely LOVE Ebay- where else can you sell your unwanted crap to purchase other people's unwanted crap?  So anyway, I'm selling a few items from Stampin' Up, and people are just so rude.  They don't read the listing, and then email me with a question that was clearly posted in the listing.  Hello?!?! Do you not know how to read? Then I don't ship out of the country- this woman emailed 2x asking if I will.  Um, what part of 'NO' do you not understand?  I'm just frustrated about this.

Do I always get the wierd ones?  I was at Target this morning, picking up some Febreze for the house, and I somehow got sucked into a discussion on how it's time to put our pet down.  What?  I don't know why I'm always that person.  My husband Dave thinks it's me, and I give off a vibe that says 'Come, talk to me, I will listen!'  I don't know about that.  It's just really strange though.

Reality Television

Alright, I admit it, I am a reality television show junkie.  Including, but definitely not limited to, Ghost Hunters, The First 48, Teen Mom 2, 16 and Pregnant, etc, etc.  At least I'm well rounded, right? 

So I've got Maury on for noise this morning, while I'm working around the house, and I'm just amazed by some of these people.  I just thank heavens that my husband isn't like these guys.  We may have our problems, but I know he'd never get another woman pregnant. 

And, tonight is Ghost Hunters.  It's one of those shows that I like watching, but the shows are always slightly more boring than the previews.

Every person that I mention on this blog has had their name changed to protect the innocent (or not so innocent) as the case may be.  I probably will be dishing about family members, and well, I don't want them to know that I'm dishing.  The dishing is enough for me. 

All ideas/postings are mine, and do not reflect my employer, my family, etc.  All content is my own as well, unless otherwise noted, or snagged from Google Images. 

Just so y'all know.  :)
So I'm currently trying to lose weight.  I love Lily Pulitzer, but my left thigh kind of likes being attached to my body.  To that end, I've been trying a whole bunch of different recipes, and joined Weight Watchers.  I love it, and it's actually working!  Now, hopefully by next summer, my closet will be filled with glorious clothes that are preppy and awesome! 


This is my newest blog, and it's a mix of everything about me!  I'm definitely champagne on a beer budget, and I love finding deals.  I also love reality tv, reading, crafting, my friends, my family, my job, etc.  I tend to be quite 'Pollyanna' like, but I embrace that- I've definitely grown into that over the last few years, and I embrace it wholeheartedly. 

This isn't going to be a deal finding website- I'm not going to post CVS deals or whathaveyou.  I don't have the time, and there are tons of websites that do the work for you.  I'm not it.  I look at those same websites myself!
