Moving Right Along....

Right before I went into hiding (I jest, I jest...just a sabbatical of sorts) I entered a giveaway that The City Boy was hosting over at Life Through Preppy Glasses


It was an Anchored Style giveaway, and I was super excited to enter because Anchored Style is new-ish...and I didn't have anything of theirs yet.


And then I went into my own little world.  And I tried to hold it together, and to not have a major mental breakdown over things happening at work, and I exited the blogging world for a bit. 

AND THEN...I was on this bachelorette weekend (oh yea...I owe you a picture, don't I?) and I got an e-mail on my blackberry from The City Boy.  He was telling me I had won his giveaway.  And do you know what?  It made my day.  My week actually :)  And I realized how much I miss my blog friends.  Because even though TEN thinks I'm a weirdy pants when I say "Oh, I have a friend who lives there!"  And he says "A friend?....."  And I say "Yes!  A blog friend."  And he just shakes his head. You ARE my friends. 

And you give me PRIZES :)  So, without further Adieu....

(sunglasses, croakies, a coozie and stickers!)


(i adore this little saying :)

Thank you so much City Boy for hosting this giveaway, and thank you so much Lady Luck for making me the winner! 

On another note...my Erin Condren Life Planner has also come into my life in the last few weeks, and I'm taking it very seriously.  I am only allowing myself one "chore" per evening, and the rest of the time is fun time.  Whatever I want to do.  If I want to relax...I will.  If I want to go on a walk...I will.  So far it's working out rather well :)


(my life planner.  it also has my name across the bottom, but you know...)

I have taken the time to go through and mark down everything I have going on.  I've used the stickers, and I've done a bit of highlighting.  My life is planned.  At least...to the best of my ability right now. 






There are still things that come up.  Things that are unplanned.  Things like running into bachelor parties, and coveting the faux fur coat someone is wearing b/c you are a bit tipsy and because you think it is the most beautiful thing you have ever seen....and possibly one of Rachel Zoe's.  Yea.  It was pretty bad....



(it was a mullet/corn row themed bachelor celebration of sorts?)


(all of us...)

So, not counting THESE types of surprises...my life is pretty much planned out at the moment.  And that feels good.  I've just made two pretty significant sales at work, and I've got another really big opportunity on it's way in.  I feel like I can breathe. 

A little bit.

Oh yea, and this guy says "hi" too!

A mullet party is the best idea ever. Love. And my Coors Light would go wonderful with that theme.

I say that all the time "oh, and I have friends in NC (or VA of SC or whenever I am talking about)" When they are bloggers, but they do count! Bloggers sometimes know more about my live the my IRL friends!

Yay!! I have ordered one of those planners too. Hopefully when it gets here my life will start to feel a little more put together :)

And I say the *same exact* thing about bloggy friends, so you are definitely not alone in that one!
