The Run-Down

I have a lot on my mind, girls! This post calls for a list ...

1. Sasha, Petunia, Muffy, Northern Belle, and Tracy: I have not forgotten that I owe you all "prizes" and I am so embarrassed by my tardiness! I have not been at home for more than 24 hours in, uh, I can't remember when. But that is no excuse, all of your goodies will be shipped at the beginning of next week. Pinky promise!

2. I have been tagged and given awards by many of you and you all are too sweet for words! Thank you, thank you ... I will post them all very soon!

3. Mrs. Mojito, I got your "pay it forward" present in the mail yesterday and it totally made my day! You have absolutely no idea how much I love cards and stationery ... you are the best :) Oh, and in all my 4 months of being married the Beau has never ONCE gotten home from work before me ... until yesterday. He called to tell me that I had a package and I told him that it was probably from you and to open it up. He finds it so amusing that friends that I don't know IRL send me little gifts. "From the outside looking in, you can’t understand it. From the inside looking out, you can’t explain it." I got that little quote from one of my sorority
t-shirts, haha, but it is soo true for bloggers!

4. Grey's Anatomy comes on in appx. 30 minutes and Ugly Betty is on now! I can hardly contain my excitement!!! This post is taking a really long time ... I am not a great multi-tasker.

5. In exactly one week from today "we flying first class up in the sky ... pop the champagne ... living the life." That is right, we are flying first class to Costa Rica next Thursday!!! The first class part was a nice surprise, thank you amex and delta ... we appreciate it :)

6. Old Navy has some seriously cute work-out and yoga wear as well as some sleep attire. Cutest stuff I have seen there in awhile! I wanted to indulge in lots of it today, however, I refrained.

7. So I just posted yesterday that I am dying to see some Broadway shows ... top on my list being Legally Blonde. Well then today KappaPrep posted on her blog that LB on Broadway is being CANCELLED!!!??? What is that about? Somebody please explain!

8. The beau's birthday is on Monday so we are going to the lake this weekend with 2 of our best couple-friends from college to celebrate. We always have the best time with them and I have been looking forward to this for several weeks! I miss these 2 girls so much (and the beau misses their significant others just as much) and I cherish the limited time I get to spend with them. The best part of our relationship with them is that I won't come back on Monday with lots of fun, fancy pictures or stories (well there might be a couple of stories). But for the most part, the girls will spend the entire weekend in our pajamas, talking, eating, laughing, crying, and drinking wine and the boys will do whatever they do. I can't wait!!!

9. I am feeling a little under the weather but there is NO TIME to be sick. I can be sick another week but not this one! Maybe I should go get a B-12 shot to boost my immune system.

10. I am not going to elaborate too much but the beau and I truly have received some divine intervention this week and I feel like a 52-thousand pound weight has been lifted off of my shoulders. I have tears in my eyes as I am writing this! Anyways, the issue was money ... isn't that always the issue??!!! We are now 89.99% debt-free and I never imagined I would feel this much relief. Do any of you listen to Dave Ramsey? If not, I encourage you to do so. The beau and I are really making a conscious effort to "act our wage" ... which is a really difficult thing to do. But we can do ... I can do it ... I really hope that I can do it!!!

11. I just saw a preview for the movie Four Christmases! I love Reese Witherspoon, I love Vince Vaughn, I love funny, and I love Christmas movies. This will be fantastic - I am sure of it!

Ok, that's all. Hope I didn't bore you too much, I realize this was pretty lengthy and random!

xoxo~

i love this post. you're so open and honest! i can't imagine how overwhelming it must be to live out of a suitcase as much as you do and i applaud you and your energy!

i love how all the bloggers are friends, but not IRL. i look forward to hearing from all of you every day.

ditto on the cute old navy work out wear. i'm wearing a cute wrap sweatshirt right now from old navy.

wow-- 89.9% debt free! congratulations!!!

Lori said...

I love that your husband doesn't quite understand the blogfriendthing. I totally tell stories about someone and call them my friend and he looks at me like, um.. is this a real friend or a blog friend? He just can't believe how much I know about people just from reading about their lives.

And, thanks for adding me to your blogroll! Statcounter says that most of my traffic comes from people who are coming from your site!

Petunia said...

Ooh--your trip to Costa Rica sounds fabulous!!

Jessica said...

I've read your blog a couple of other times and keep meaning to add you to my list. Starting reading your last one, but stopped when i got to your point about Dave Ramsey.
He is amazing and I am so glad that he's obviously made a difference in your life! We are trying very hard to get to that point as well and plan to be debt free except our mortgage in 2 years! My husbad always quotes him "live like noone else so you can live like noone else"

Mojito Maven said...

YAYAYAYAY! I'm so glad you liked it! I love pretty cards and I truly think handwritten notes are so underappreciated...plus they were all really pretty!

And, ditto to Mrs. Blue-Eyed Bride. I also love reading your posts and I would be EXHAUSTED if I had to travel as often as you do, but yet you always have the best attitude!

~Mrs. Guru~ said...

Such a great post!I also love Old Navy. However, it is a hit or miss!

wow! I felt like I was speed reading through your post and there is too much to comment on... Gray's kicked ass tonight.. Hope you have fun this weekend... Hubby has talked of Mr. Ramsey... guess we should listen...
blog friends rule!

Kappa Prep said...

I am SO sad and still weeping over LB! Lucky for us the tour has not yet been called off, but I am sure it is the next thing to go!

L Sqaured said...

I hope you feel better!! And Have fun on your trip! I Can't wait to see pictures! I want to go to Costa Rica SOO bad!

Congrats on paying down your debt, thats awesome!!

Marden Family said...

Congrats on paying off most of your debt- DH and I are in the process of trying to do the same thing and all of the cute fall stuff out in stores right now is not helping!!

The Pink Owl said...

Great post! I also saw all the great yoga and sleep wear at ON yesterday! I, too, refrained. ;) Have a great weekend!

amberjohnson said...

I think LB is probably being cancelled because the new star sucks and no one's coming to the show. That's what I'm hearing anyway

LyndsAU said...

I need to hear about the divine intervention ASAP!!! Boo for travel, I know it sucks!! And I am going shopping in ATL Sat whoooo. Will so have to check out ON!
Adam doesn't understand the whole blog friend thing either. :)

Sasha said...

No worries- I know you are busy!

Have fun this weekend!

Mrs.Preppy said...

We are in a Dave Ramsey class right now.... we really like most of what he has to say.

Petunia said...

I know you're really busy, but I have tagged you if you want to play!

Amy (Metz) Walker said...

We "act our wage" here, thanks to my husband getting on board a little over a year ago. Like ya'll, we're in the home stretch and I just can't wait!!!
