Small Things 018

018 : 365 Days

1. Ann Taylor Loft Clearance/Sales that include an additional 25% off! I swear I can't stay away from a good sale! 3 sweater/cardigans and a pair of jeans for $31.64! I'm not kidding! If I would've paid full price, I would've spent $246 dollars + tax. Seriously, you can't get a better bargain and as Ken said, "That's like 85% off, INSANE!!!" I {heart} Ann Taylor!

2. Trish, for keeping such a great pant (faux demin) and waiting to return it to Ann Taylor! We met up yesterday and got to talking about clothes and Ann Taylor Loft. She mentioned that she had some things in her car that she bought in November that she needed to return. I asked her what they were and what was wrong with them?!? She had a skirt and a pair of faux jeans. I LOVED the jeans, so I asked her if I could take them home, try them on and if they worked I would just pay her for them. Well I got to thinking and I called to store to confirm my hair brain idea... and ta da, it worked. (see #3 for what my idea was...)

3. For Faux Demin Jeans at Ann Taylor Loft. Trish purchased the jeans for $23.99 and didn't want them because they were higher priced than 2 others she had purchased (of the same/similar style). She was just going to return them. Well because Ann Taylor Loft always has such a quick turn around on their sale/clearance items, I said, "November! Seriously?!!? They are probably SO cheap now! I called the store and they said you could return them with your receipt, get your credit and then I could turn around and purchase them for the current (sale) price. Great, let's meet for lunch and do the switch-a-roo!" So we go there today on lunch, Trish returned the pants, I asked if I could try them on, then later I asked for a price check AND.... I got those jeans for $4.88 + 25% off today! CRAZY!!!! How could you pass that up!?!?! (Can you say Retail Therapy?!?! All it takes is a good sale to perk me back up!)

4. Size 10 pants. Oh, how I love pulling you off the rack and having you fit, perfectly!!!! I've missed you so...!

5. Medium sized tops. It's been a while since we've had this kind of relationship but I'm glad we are back on solid ground again! It's great being able to wear you comfortably again (thanks for Weight Watchers)!!!!

It's been a great day! I can't wait to wear some of my new items tomorrow! (Yes, I'll wear them before I wash them myself, so what?!? Gross maybe, but I don't care, I'm going to look great! Wanna try and stop me?! I dare you to try!) :)

Sounds like a fabulous day! I wish I could get that excited about clothes shopping, but my body is so unproportioned right now, it's ridiculously unflattering. I can't even imagine what it'd look like in flourescent lighted dressing room mirrors. ;)

Kudos to you for being a bargain shopper - a girl after my own heart.

A girl after my own heart! I just did a post last week about my amazing steals at ATL. Then I got the email that they were having an additional 50% off of clearance prices, so I drove an hour on Saturday to check it out for myself.

Something about that store just makes me light and smiley and happy!

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

Starting here..

I know that I haven't really updated this in a long while. I apologize. In the moments it was hard enough to survive, let alone write about it or find time to write about it.

With that said, I've told people over and over again that I'm going to write again, just not sure where to start.
So, today, I'm starting here.
My mom is terminal.  
Words that I cannot believe have to leave my mouth or my fingers.
She's been battling Ovarian Cancer for well over 10 years and this last year or 8 months+ have been just the worst.  Her body is being consumed by cancer and with every day that passes we are just another closer to losing her.
She's fought this whole time and continues to beat the odds that the doctors have placed before her. She's set goals and surpassed them and when the doctors say something, it's like she mentally tells herself that it's just NOT going to happen and she flies by those measurable items.
She's been a rock star and I have known …
