Don’t Disown Me, Friend.

Alright, I’m about to let you in on a little secret that I’ve been keeping for about a year. You have to realize that It’s not going to be easy for me — I’m putting myself out there BIG TIME — so I need your word as my friend not to completely disown me. Are you in?

Okay, so I have these jeans. Three pair of them, actually. And they are absolutely flawless.  The fit minimizes any and all flaws in the butt/hip/thigh area, the length is ideal for wearing 4″ stilettos (high-waters, no thanks), and the wash… Ohh, the wash… ultra dark and slimming and perfect and fabulous and you get it already, so I’ll shut it.

Anyway, these great jeans are only $24.99. Seriously!  So, if you’re asking yourself what the big, dark secret is, let me just say is has to do with where I found them.  I– I can’t even bring myself to say the name, but I’ll give you a hint:

Take this man’s initials…

add it to one of these…

and let the horror ensue.

Anyway, Mixit brand jeans are great, I love them, and I don’t care if my Great-Grandma shops at Penny’s owns a pair… I’m still rockin’ em.

Stuck in a Perfume Rut

Some time ago, I realized what a brand name junkie/sellout I am when it comes to perfume. It’s sad, really. If you take a look at my current collection, you’ll find something creepily similar with each one. Just try to put your finger on it… haha.

Something blonde and umm… hoochie perhaps? Well, I guess I’ll cut Gwen some slack on the hoochie part… she’s cool, and I actually favor L.A.M.B. over the others. But Britney and Paris? When did I subconsciously decide I wanted to smell like an attention-craving panty-ditcher? I’m thinking it’s time for a change.

So, what is everyone wearing now? What are your favorite scents? I am in desperate need of something new. My trusty fall back is Victoria’s Secret Vanilla Lace (mmm, smells like cookies), but perfume-wise, I could use some help. :)


I know, it’s bad. I think I had one post in the last week… such a disgrace! Just know that I have been a busy little woman and have a heap of new posts in the queue. :)

Something to look forward to…

First ultrasound for Baby Gable!


I also have an exciting and much-anticipated lunch date with Mrs. Stephanie Corwin this weekend. Details and pictures to come. :)

Purse Raid Game

When I threw a bridal shower for my friend a few weeks ago, we played a game called Purse Raid. I had a long list of items – some common, some completely random – and the point was to see which lady was carrying the most in their purse. As I read off the list, I was surprised at the results… I had no idea some people really do carry pepper spray!

The inspiration for this post is partially from the game we played at the shower, but I’ve also seen a blog-tag-what’s-in-your-purse type of thing circulating…

So I’ll get the ball rolling and tag myself!

  • My Fauch (faux Coach) wallet
  • Address Book
  • Victoria’s Secret Free Panty coupon
  • “Indulge” 2-month-old birthday card (from Shea)
  • The Other Boleyn Girl paperback… loving it.
  • Black sunglasses & brown (gotta have backups)
  • Dingy makeup bag
  • Jane loose face powder
  • OPI polish – Shoot Out at the O.K. Coral (I’m bad & paint them at work)
  • Great Shakes hand lotion
  • Sour Mango Altoids
  • Plastic Easter egg… the jellybeans from inside were eaten long ago!
  • $.85
  • Gold leaf earrings
  • Random pen from work
  • Pink Razr… so old and dying.
  • Wintermint Orbit gum
  • My car keys, complete with Blockbuster Rewards card

Very sad, is it not?
