Anyway, today was nice. I decided to lay on the tanning bed and when I got out, I walked to my car and saw a $10 bill floating in a puddle of water. I am totally not above putting that baby to a hair dryer and making it as good as new. So I made $10 today by doing nothing! Yay for me!
I discovered that my life is sad if I'm willing to stop and watch The Cheetah Girls for 20 minutes while channel surfing.
I watched the Hills tonight. I'm so Team Audrina this year. I've always been Team Whitney because she seems to be the only mature one. LC is great but there's something about her. And Lo....I dunno. But she is a KKG so I'm giving her the benefit of the doubt.
Did anyone watch the DNC tonight? I watched it on Fox of course. It did nothing for me. I did enjoy Michelle Obama's little video archive. Her mother seemed proud. And Michelle's outfit was great...of course. I was almost confused if I should be voting for Obama or Kennedy though. Was all of that necessary? I've decided while watching all of this political hoopla is this: A politician is no different than a pageant girl. All they do is walk out on a stage in their best outfit, wave consistently, and talk about things that are a great idea but never happen. Miss America should totally be the VP. Educated, well dressed (has many suits), great speaker, great waver.
I got a new car finally!! I got it on Friday and I love it. My favorite car I've had so far definitely.
Since I was slacking so much on new postings last week, I wasn't able to post two more videos of Landon. These will be the last two I promise!! The first is of Scott trying to teach Landon how to juggle and the second is of Landon in his Halloween costume that he wore last year. Enjoy!!

Landon loves singing and he wanted to make a 'movie' of him singing for all of you. So here he is, singing You've Got a Friend in Me. And those are the only words from the song that he knows by the way...

The other day, I got my car washed. This is when I still had a car of course. I paid 8 dollars for the good one which included the power blow drying. As my car was done washing, I was slowly pulling out trying to make sure every inch of my car was getting dry. Whatta ya know...a "homeless" person comes right up to my window wanting me to roll it down so I could give them money. I was trapped because I paid that 8 dollars to get that blow dry and I was not just gonna peal out....that would be a waste of a dollar. I just had to stare straigh ahead and try to pretend like I didn't see the women knocking on my window while my car got dry. So akward and quite scary. That happens in Memphis on a daily basis.
No news on a new car for me yet. Scott and I looked all day last Saturday at cars. That is so boring to me. Not fun at all. For some reason the insurance company is taking an exceptionally long time to write me a very large check. I guess they're confused because they've probably never had to deal with a car explosion that didn't include a bomb. Hopefully I'll have a car within the next week. I'm sure I'll spend hours looking with Dad and Scott in Little Rock tomorrow. Fun fun.
Alright that's all for now.

So there's this guy who works in there. A very nice guy actually. When my addiction first started I would go, grab my Oreo and check out. But I've been going so frequently he's started to recognize me. The other ladies in the store ask me if I need help but he tells them 'I know what she wants!', grabs an Oreo and checks me out. Very embarassing. I actually dread going into Dinstuhls but these Oreo's are so good, it's worth the humiliation. Today however, it reached an all new level. As I walked in, he said hey and I said hey back. Then he said 'I saw you driving downtown the other day.'
......Oh My Gosh for real? I'm the Oreo girl that you know so well you recognize me driving my car in the 17th largest city in America? That is so embarassing.
After that comment I have decided this has got to stop. My Oreo days are over.

I have so much time on my hands I've taken my bordem to the next level...the Miss Arkansas message board. That thing is crazy!! All they do is discuss the new Miss Arkansas official photo and the jewlery she is wearing in it. Some find her necklace and earings so fashion foward while others find it amazingly tacky to wear anything other than diamond studs. And don't even get them started on the possible airbrushing the photographer did on that photo!!! People have fought for 8 pages over it. Doesn't that make you laugh out loud? Get a life people!!! Why does it matter?? Ahhh the pageant world...
My precious nephew is coming to see me tomorrow! I'm very excited! I'm sure my next blog will be all about the cute things he has said. Until then, I'm going to eat my lunch now while enjoying reruns of Home Improvement which will no doubt, be filled with Judge Mathis and Maury commercials....always entertaining.

The best part of my day is when my amazing fiancee called me around 10:00 to tell me he booked me a massage appointment at 2. AWWW. He's so sweet!! Out of nowhere...just because! He does this for me all the time and I love him for it!!
I used my lottery money that I won yesterday to get my hair cut...plus 20 additional dollars. I know I'm a hairstylist but haircuts are so expensive!! When you're shellin it out for yourself it hurts!! However, my hair looks lovely and she did better than anyone ever has actually. After my hair appointment I drove straight to the Peabody for my massage! It was amazing!! So nice!
I decided to continue with my fancy pampering and waltz over to the lobby of the Peabody and have myself a glass of wine. The ducks were swimming while I was there so that made it even more lovely. The only spoiler was the kid who was trying to be all Harry Potter on the ducks. He was waving his hands like he was magically trying to turn them into something else. I dread when my kids get to that major annoying age.
All in all, a lovely day. And I ended it by cooking my favorite guy a delicious Filet with mushroom sauce with a side of steamed broccoli and a cajun crabmeat dip for an appetizer. Under candlelight. I had to be romantic since he was so good to me today!

Has anyone heard that song about riding a bike with no handlebars? I seriously believe that is the dumbest song I've ever heard in my entire life. It's miserable.
Scott booked our honeymoon yesterday! We're both very excited about it. We tossed up a lot of ideas and finally decided on St. Lucia. The resort looked too good to pass up! Only downfall is our flight leaves at 6 a.m. on Sunday! Poor Scott will wake up to a grumpy wife when the alarm for us to get moving goes off at 4. It will of course all be worth it and the best thing about me is I can sleep anywhere!! Check out where we're staying! http://www.jademountainstlucia.com/
