iphone

I got a new iphone case today and now my fairy godmother is so cute, I can hardly stand it! This is what it looks like...



Even though mine is looking all cute, I can't wait for the new iphone to come out this summer. I think that I will be up for a new phone at about the time of the release, so I'm even more jazzed.

Have you heard about the leaked info on the new phone? Even if you haven't, you've got to watch this clip of Jon Stewart. Stick with it...the whole thing. Classic Stewart...hysterical!

I Did A Bad, Bad Thing...

I Did A Bad, Bad Thing...

I went to the Coach Outlet today armed with a coupon...20% off your purchase, but if you spent a certain amount, your discount increased to 30% off. I didn't really NEED anything, but I haven't bought a new spring purse this year. Yes, I did buy a new one last year. And no, there wasn't a thing wrong with last year's model. But, it never hurts to look, right? And one can never have too many bags, right? Thanks for agreeing...that was exactly what I was thinking too!

So once I got inside, I experienced some temporary insanity and a shopping spree ensued! I got some really great deals though.

First, I got a new spring/summer bag...
Yes, last year's spring/summer bag was white, but it was pebble leather, not patent leather, so they are vastly different. Oh and the thing that sold me... a $385 bag for $83!!!!
Of course I had to get my accessory an accessory, so I got it that cute little tie, and for a fabulous deal too! Here is where the insanity…

Daily Laugh

I normally laugh at many things each day, but even if I'm having a rare grumpy-nothing's going right-kind of day, I can always get at least one laugh out of visiting Cake Wrecks

Cake Wrecks is a fabulous blog that posts, well, photos of cake wrecks with funny comments that go along with them on Monday through Friday.  Then on Sunday, they post fabulous cakes you would really love to see at a party.

Cake Wrecks allows you to e-mail them in photos of cake wrecks that you see.  You will find yourself looking at Wal-Mart, Kroger, etc. for cake wrecks and sending them in in no time!  I have turned on Jennifer to this site, who in turn, turned her sister-in-law on to it.  Not long ago, her sister-in-law had one of her photos published and we all go so darn excited!

They also have a book.  Here is the cover of the book:

It's an example of my favorite form of cake wrecks... Ones where the people making the cakes are more stupid than you knew was humanly possible!

One Month!

Since I was out of town on Saturday and didn't get to do my SATC Saturday...

and since SATC opens in one month...

I'm sharing some photos from the new movie with you!















I'm so excited I can hardly stand it! And this is suppose to be delivered to my doorstep today...

Why is Ryan Star?

Several of you have told me that you don't know who Ryan Star is. I speculate that many of you (even my parents) have heard Ryan's music, you just don't know it is associated with him.

Here are some examples...

An American Idol Fan? They used Ryan's song "Breathe" in their promo...



Have HBO? Maybe you've seen this...


Watch Lie to Me? They use his song in their intro...

Have you seen "P.S. I Love You" with Hillary Swank? Yes, the book was WAY, WAY better than the movie, but the music in the movie was good. Ryan has this song on it's soundtrack...


Watch History Channel Much? They are a Ryan Star fan...


His music has also been featured on NBC, ESPN, etc. So I speculate that at some point, you may have run across Ryan Star and just not known it!

Trying to Catch a Star (Ryan Star)...

Here is possibly the longest post in history, so hold on folks! It is filled with shenanigans and hijinks, so try to power through!

First, I think you all know that I've been planning to go to Houston to see Ryan Star. You've heard me mention Ryan before I'm sure. I've been a fan for years and I believe he is really talented and about to be on his way to big things (new album coming out in July, just made VH1 top 20 this week, etc.). Anyway, he was on tour with another act (Serena Ryder) and was coming to Texas. I was so excited until I discovered that his show was on Thursday night and I couldn't go because I had to teach class. I saw that he was going to be in Houston on Friday night, so I made plans with my friend Abby to go visit her. She lives about an hour outside of Houston.

Well, on Thursday, I see a tweet from Ryan that Serena Ryder had to cancel her concert due to an emergency, but he was going to still be at the Dallas and Houston House of Blues (HOB) sh…

A Big State

Texas is a big state. I'm sure you are saying, Well Duh!. I have never had to drive too much across this big state of ours. Sure I made the trek from Nocona to Lubbock many times, but that was about 4 hour. I'm preparing for a trip south tomorrow and have been studying maps. Every source I go to gives me a differnt route and they are all very long routes!

I'm headed to visit my friend Abby. Abby moved way south several years ago and I've been a bad friend and never gone to visit. Abby has been trying to persuade me to branch out from being her personal clothes shopper to also assisting her in her house decorating endeavors. So, I'm heading south for some shopping, but before we shop we are going to a concert.

A singer that I like, Ryan Star, is playing in Houston on Friday night. I could see him in Dallas tonight, but I have to teach, so we are going to drive an hour into Houston on Friday (after my 5 1/2 hour trek south) and see the concert. Abby, the Pric…

Peace

Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me...
Well maybe not peace on earth, but I'm trying to achieve peace in my backyard...
between this adorable creature... and all the vermin that wonder in and out (out if they are lucky).
What am I doing to achieve this peace?
This... With today's purchase of the rat at Ikea (pictured center), we now have a stuffed version of everything she likes to chase and kill. I'm hopeful that she will come to think of these as her friends and not attack them in the yard. However, since she instantly went and grabbed the rat, shook it and threw it to the ground (her killing technique), I'm not sure if my plan will work.
I'm just trying to achieve world peace one back yard at a time!

One of those days...

You know it is going to be one of those days when you've yelled at someone by 7 a.m. And I do mean yelled at someone. That "lucky" someone was a client. Who called me at 7 a.m. At my house. When I've never given her my house number. Seriously.
I was dead asleep and my phone rings. I look at caller ID and see that client dumbass is calling. I answer, nobody's there. I hang up the phone and of course she calls right back (this is what my clients do...call, don't get fast response, call right back...the concept of voicemail is lost on them). I answered the 2nd time, I yelled. She's an idiot who wanted to know what time to be in court today. Ummm, her court isn't until the 30th. The End.
On a happier note, Bath & Body Works came out with their summer vanillas yesterday and you know I think the lemon smells oh so yummy. In my lemon obsession, I've also been desiring a lemon perfume. I haven't found one that I adored, at least until yesterday. Big…

Warning: Addictive TV Ahead

I don't know how, but sometime on Sunday between watching Precious and procrastinating what really needed to be done, I stumbled upon some TV Gold. Gold I tell you! It is on WE TV and it is called My Fair Wedding with David Tutera.

Here is the premise of every show: 3 weeks before the wedding, David shows up and takes over the wedding. When he shows up, the bride shows him what she has planned. Then he decides what is craptastic and what he wants to change. He takes the Bride to look at 3 options of all the things he wants to change, but doesn't tell her which one he picked until the wedding day.

Here's what I LOVE about this show: You couldn't make up the crazy crap that these people have planned! Watching David's response (or lack of response in some cases) is some of the funniest television I've ever seen.

Sometimes the dress is bad. Sometimes the bridesmaid dresses are bad. Sometimes the theme is bad. Sometimes the colors are bad. Sometimes it is the venue (he…

SATC Sunday {because I forgot on Saturday}

I intended to revamp Sex and the City Saturday with last Saturday's post, but then this Saturday, I forgot. So here is SATC Sunday...

The movie poster has come out and here it is:

I have to say that I'm a little bit confused right now about when this movie is being released. Originally, I read May 28th, but then I noticed that the poster and trailer said May 27th. When I went to Fandango to see if tickets are available for purchase, it says that the movie is being released on May 28th. So I guess I'll just be confused for a little while.

I'm not going to be super concerned about when it opens because I'm certain, I'm going to win this:

Yesterday, when I got my mail, I found this... It contains some great SJP photos
