It's okay Thursday #22

It's that time of the week don't forget to link up with Amber & Neely!!
It's Okay...
that last night I stayed up until 1 am looking at hangers on eBay.  I purchased these
that I have a slight obsession with hangers - they all MUSTmatch!   Okay I know that the clips are slightly different but they are all the same kind of hanger.
that I found these hangers through googling 
and seriously contemplated buying them but come on I do not NEED 50 skirt/pant hangers Or do I??  OMG I want them!!
Hello my name is Shia and I am a hanger-holic!
that once Paul and I move and are settled in our permanent house .... these fab hangers will def be a must.  I just couldn't see myself explaining  to him that yes we need to ship these hangers from Florida  to wherever we move in the Pacific Northwest because I bought  them online for a pretty penny because they are (i) (hello) DAMASK   and (ii) black like all my other hangers!
that for fear of Paul opening the box from the ebay seller…

Happy Friday

30 days until my wedding!!

Email Cleanse

Today I decided enough is enough ... I have like a ba-gillion gmail accounts and one is nothing much junk mail.  Literally I log on to it just so I can delete like 100 junk mails a day.  Why?  So I just went through my trash folder and unsubscribed to any that I didn't open.  Hopefully this will eliminate the amount of junk I get a day.  Also, instead of just handing out my email to any old retailer that asks for it I am going to say ... NO THANK YOU!  I don't need you sending me your advertisements on a daily basis.  I mean sure you give them the email address for hopes of a discount code or coupon but in reality they are just giving you more temptation to buy.  So off with your junk mail!
How many email accounts do you have ... am I the only one with 10??  Do I need AA for email accounts??

The Joy of Cooking

So I saw this on Yahoo and thought I would share... today would be Julia Child's 100th birthday so in her honor yahoo posted the recipe for her brownies! Brownies are def my weakness so you totally had me at Best-Ever. Here's the receipe: Julia's Best-Ever Brownies(adapted from 'Baking with Julia' with Dorie Greenspan) Ingredients: 1 1/4 cups sifted all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon salt 8 ounces unsalted butter 4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, coarsely chopped 2 ounces bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped 2 cups sugar 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 4 large eggs, room temperature Directions: 1. Put a rack in the center of the oven and pre-heat to 350 degrees. 2. Sift together the flour and salt; set aside. 3. Melt the butter and all of the chocolate together the in the microwave in a large bowl. 4. Add one cup of the sugar to the chocolate-butter mixture and stir for 30 seconds. Stir in the vanilla. 5. Mix the remaining sugar and the four eggs in an electric mixer bowl…

Happy Monday

I know I have been MIA but don't worry I will be back into the swing of things soon!  I hope.  I guess I've just had all of those "other" things come up and when I have a moment where I think about blogging ... I'm still fixing the pics on my old posts.  
Also, someone said to me the other day in X amount of days I will have 30 days until my wedding ... um yeah I know.  So I guess those things have been weighing on my time and mind as well.  Also, someone asked me if I was nervous about getting married?  Um like to Paul?  No - not at all.  Now looking fat in photos um yeah I am completely nervous and terrified about that.  Seriously if you have gotten married and felt this same way ... let me know because I am seriously going insane over here about it!
Plus let's face it sometimes you just don't have anything to say ... no brilliance to type out ... then what ... you just post stuff like this to get you through a post - how great is that?  Not so much.

It's Okay Thursday #21

It's that time of the week don't forget to link up with Amber & Neely!!
It's Okay:
that it is Wednesday night and I am doing this post and that I am not scheduling it for Thursday ... hooking it up when I hit publish ... boo yeah!
that when I deleted my corrupt email account the check list of items that google informed me I would lose forever failed to mention EVERY PICTURE ON MY BLOG!  Yeah how is that for SUCKS!!!
that I wanted to just delete this blog and never think about it again!
that I am totally awesome and figured out that said pictures are still listed on google images therefore I just have to go post by post and add them back ... I mean I only have like 638 (now 639 posts) EASY PEASY....not.
that going back and looking at all my old posts has really made me see that there is some great stuff on here and that I do indeed love my blog.
that anytime I think my blog is in a rut I am just going to look at some of my old stuff for inspiration.  Seriously try it so…
