roping some sugar

Blah. It's been a day. A hot one. Holy crap. I swear that it has never, ever been this hot and humid and miserable here. I know I was gone for awhile, but this was not how it was. I ran errands today and I felt like I was gonna die from walking in and out of the store. I got some new furniture for my bedroom though. I was running out of places to put my clothes (how horrible is that??), so I got this little cabinet and some cubes with baskets. I got it all put together this afternoon and it looks cute.

Funny story - I have a friend who flies Apache helicopters in the Army, and he got some new gear the other day. So he was looking at the box, and it was talking about the warranty and what it did and didn't cover and all that. He said the last two lines were, "This guarantee is void only if the PELICAN product has been abused beyond normal and sensible wear and tear. The above guarantee does not cover shark bite, bear attack or children under 5." Hahahahaha. I laughed my ass off. Children under 5 go in the same category as sharks and bears. But seriously, who puts sharks or bears in their warranty anyway? It's not like they're even closely related or anything. Too awesome. I guess people who make products for the military have to plan for every occasion. So, there's a little humor for tonight. He saved the box, so hopefully I'll get to see it one day. It would make me incredibly happy.

Job searching sucks, just so you know. I'm not to the point where I'm desperate and I have to take the first thing that's offered to me. It would just be nice to be able to find something I like. I wish someone would just offer me a really awesome job with a great salary and fantastic benefits. Anyone? At all? *crickets* No? Ok then...

Just a warning, what I'm going to say next will spoil The Bachelorette. So if you haven't watched it yet, and you want to, read no further.

Ok, now can you believe that Ed couldn't close the deal??? And then he talked about it on TV? Holy crap. I mean, I know it's one of those things and it probably is really awkward with cameras filming everything for millions of people to see. But seriously. Poor dude. They didn't have to show that shit. He's going to be that guy from now on. Guarantee you that's the first thing they'll ask him on the reunion show. God, I just feel bad. That's no one's business.

My Spoonful tonight is a collection of lariat style necklaces. I absolutely love them, and I've found some of the most gorgeous ones ever.

Yummy! How awesome are those?? First of all, I'm going to say that I'm a horrible person and I have no idea where the first one came from. Here's the thing: I always look over a few days and pull up some Internet windows with items I like. Well, that one got closed AFTER I already made the little picture collage. I've tried really hard to figure it out, but I can't. So sad day. From there on, we have Maeve Lariat from Eye Love It, then Prepster Lariat from Silver Dot Jewelry Designs, and the last one is Summer Sun from Made By Sam.

Anywho, off to finish up the laundry and hit the sack. Hope everyone has a great night!!



  1. I like the mystery one! All gray/blue and moody. Want to try one of these one day. You have excellent taste. You're right, jobseeking sucks hard. I hate it too. I always have this sick frying pan-to-fire foreboding...You're young, you're cute, you're educated and it sounds like you have some interesting job experience. You're a shoo-in!

  2. I really like that clasp on the orange one... too clever!

    I am totally in the same boat with you on the job search. I'm tired of being bored and would love some extra spending money, but I don't want to settle for some crap job. But I think things are slowly getting a little better, so hopefully we'll both be gainfully employed soon:)

  3. Sharks, bears, and toddlers! Hehe!

    Love your lariat picks!
