Shopping and Survivor

I think it's going to be a slow day at the office today. Our boss is gone to Texas for a hunting trip, so it's just me and another lady in the office. It's been slow around here lately, really not many lawsuits or claims coming in and I think today we'll probably be on the Internet a lot. Tough job huh?

Last night was pretty much a repeat of the night before. I went to the golf course to walk with Boomer, I watched TV, I cleaned. I think I've lost a little weight since Sean hasn't been around. When I don't have to cook for him I tend to eat less. It's his cooking on the weekend that always gets me. Steak, potatoes, other tasty grilled things. He says he has to feed me like that so I won't lose my butt. I assured him that losing my butt isn't something that will ever happen. I think it's here to stay.

Oh and if you love Target as much as I do, to not miss out on Wandering DC's Target Giveaway! She's giving away a Target gift card, so head on over to her blog to check it out.

I'm in the market for a colored passport cover. I saw some in Oprah's magazine one time and I've wanted them ever since.

I think I want a pink one or a turquoise one. Very cute aren't they?

I'm very excited about this whole moving to Italy thing, but I'm terrified of the plane ride there. There are a couple reasons for this.

A. I haven't been a fan of flying since 9/11, before that I loved it. After that I pretty much get panic attacks before getting on the plane.

B. I've had a long flight from Alaska to Chicago, but never flown to Europe. Visions of TWA Flight 800 dance in my head whenever I think about it. I know there are thousands of flights that nothing happens, but still in the back of my mind I worry.

C. I'm worried about Boomer making the flight. I'm terrified about him getting lost between the US and Italy! If something happened to him I'd be inconsolable!

That's really the only big hang-up I'm having about moving to Italy. Everything else seems like a walk in the park.

I found the cutest stuff at CATO yesterday. I don't often shop there, but I heard they have some cute jewelry so I had to investigate. Cute jewelry indeed! I'm always looking for some colorful stuff to punch up my wardrobe and I found a red beaded necklace and a turqoise braclet on clearance, as well as the cutest black purse!

It looks similar to this, but more simple.

The other day I found some cute shoes at Payless, although I haven't bought them yet and thought they looked familiar.

It's because they look very similiar to these J.Crew shoes that I had seen on another blog.

Survivor is on tonight! I missed it last week somehow between the vice-presidential debate and other things, but I'm not missing it tonight. I'm wondering what time Sean will be home though.....

Well, I hope everyone has a great Thursday! Only a couple more days until the weekend!

Don't worry about the plane ride, you will be fine! Just bring some good books and sit back and relax. Also, I recommend buying a bottle of melatonin to help induce sleep. It will help on the plane and help regulate your sleeping pattern once you get there.

I would be so worried about Roxie too. I seriously think there might be tears involved.

Don't worry though, thousands of dogs do it every year. He will come through with flying colors!

I feel your pain. I haven't loved flying ever, but after 9/11 I am not a fan at all. I always get anxiety! it's bad! but it's always ok :) Don't worry, it will be great!
And woah I feel you on the dog situation. I would DIE if mine got lost. He will be ok. I am sure they take really good care of him!

Roxanne said...

Gosh I love those shoes! Don't worry about the plane girl! You and Boomer will arrive safely :)

Sgt and Mrs Hub said...

Those shoes are smokin'! I'd wear them in a heartbeat, but I bet you already knew that! :)

Hope your husband gets home in good season tonight!

I'm getting ready to go to Texas on a hunting trip. Hunting for cute clothes. Maybe I will stop at Payless and get those shoes... too cute!

Allison said...

Yeah, that plane ride is a you have a video iPod? I always load mine up with movies or tv shows and just watch away! :)

My last flight back to Texas I flew Continental and it was AWESOME because they had tv sets on the back of each seat with like 100+ movies and tv shows loaded on there to watch!

Ok I laughed out loud about gaining weight when the husband is around because that is the same problem I have! My hubbys makes pasta, steak, hot delish but bad for my thighs and butt!

The Mrs. said...

I love me a good plane ride! And so do the boys, I think its in their blood! Just take along a boat load (or plane load) of trashy magazines and load up the ipod.

FYI- I just saw the colored passport holders on sale at Pottery Barn online for 14 bucks.
