Oh what a day...

Yesterday was quite the day. I had planned on sleeping in and taking my time getting packed and making sure I had all the school stuff I needed for a weekend at home (the pseudo-sis's bridal shower is tomorrow!). However, the morning had other plans for me.

Instead of blissfully sleeping till noon, my poor roomie woke up the hibernating bear (me) at 8 am to inform me that I needed to get out of bed because the pest control people were on their way to the house. En route. Mind you, I've had no coffee yet. Or food. And I'm not exactly a sweet southern belle in the morning. Yet here I am, in my pajamas, coffeeless, foodless, showerless, and am faced with the task of packing for the weekend in 5 minutes. I found a bag and started throwing clothes into it, randomly grabbed textbooks, and managed to grab a cinnamon roll before heading out the door.

So I called my loves that live in an apartment complex nearby and asked if I could crash there for a while. And as luck would have it, they were on their way to the bus stop. Go figure. I talked them into waiting for me to get there and promised I would drive them to class. So that's exactly what I did. Dropped them off at campus in my pajamas with my hair in a big crazy mess, no makeup, and basically looking like death warmed over.

After a hot shower and clean clothes I was in a much better mood for the long drive home. And at the end of that long drive home was dinner with my momma and some quality time with a really great guy. :) We went out to the river to watch the shuttle go up and had a really great time just talking. Could this be the start of something? ;)

Love, hugs, and days that get progressively better...

The princess and the pea

When I get in bed I want to practically sink into it. Like disappear. I want the mattress to be soft and the mattress topper to be a nice big fluffy addition of wonderfulness. A friend lounging in my bed one time called it a "cloud bed". An appropriate description.

So imagine my horror when the bed my parents lugged all the way from our place in NC was about as soft as the Rosetta Stone. But have no fear! The mattress topper is here! Wrong. The mattress topper I bought from Target was lumpy and the opposite of comfy.

Commence Mission Find Mattress Topper.

To make a long and lumpy story short, after what felt like a dozen trips to Bed Bath & Beyond, Target, and Macy's, I ended up using the original lumpy mattress topper as well as a super plush Martha Stewart one on top of that. They added so much fluff that you can barely see my headboard. However, the goal was achieved. :) I sink when I crawl in and no one would ever know there is a rock of a mattress underneath.

Just like the Princess and the Pea...

Back in Tally!

Guess who's back in Tallahassee!? Yep, yesterday I filled Old Faithful to the brim with clothes, shoes, and thats about all it would hold... We then made the long trek back north to the land of big brick buildings and huge oak trees. Upon arrival at my home sweet Tally home, my wonderful roomies helped unload my cars and I tried to get my room pulled together. We have a super charming house so I figured I would share some photos with you!

Help! Danger!

It's no secret that I have a shopping problem. (The psuedo-sis actually called the other day to see if I would watch Shopaholic with her because my talk of shopping issues earlier in the day made her want to watch it.) And it's also no secret that I have a severe weakness for a good pair of jeans. So will someone PLEASE talk me out of buying these gorgeous (but expensive) beauties!!??

But I really won't be upset if you say they're so dang cute that I should go ahead and treat myself. I mean it has been a long summer...

Love, hugs, and putting the credit card in the freezer...
