Monday KUI?

Anyone else starting the week off right?

I have the day off tomorrow (my only day off in a 10-day streak) and I had planned an epic shopping trip, but now I'm being told that H is expecting a very important delivery and he wants to me wait at home for it.  I'm trying to get UPS to hold it at will call, but the website isn't cooperating.  So I'm feeling a little grrrrrr.  Vodka helps, though.

Anyone else around?

    I am... waiting for BF's mom to get out of her meeting so I can call her.

    Squeeeeeee!  Hi Irish!
  • Options
    Hi Elle! :) How are you, other than feeling stabby about packages??
  • Options
    I'm good, otherwise.  I'm really excited because one of my friends just got engaged!  Maybe you know her?
  • Options
    You know, I just might... Was she perhaps, a blonde that is still calling her FI a BF?? LOL
  • Options
    I'm a little annoyed because I don't know how to tell my mom. With her going through this really sucky time right now - and obviously, she is going to be against marriage, and men in general... I'm nervous she's gonna be debbie downer.

    Yeah, I get the feeling.  You just need to remember that the two events (your engagement and your mom's divorce) are completely unrelated.  If your mom wants to let her emotions over one thing color her feelings about the other, that's her problem.  Don't let it put a damper on your happiness.

    If she's a Debbie Downer about it, you know where you can find some extra squees to cheer you up!

    I'm around, and KUI! I'm drinking one of those Daily's frozen margaritas. It's okay, not amazing but I think it is worth the $1 I bought it for. :) FI accidently turned the heat on to RUN today before we left for work so I needed something to cool me down while the AC killed itself trying to cool the house down. I just feel bad for my kitty having to be in the house today. :(

    You are absolutely right. <3 Thank you.

    So tell me about this epic shopping trip. I need to live vicariously through you since shopping excursions here stink.
  • Options
    No work tomorrow! Drinking GF beer and waiting for this week to be over. I worked the weekend so I'm sooo over it right now.
    @Texas - even a bad margarita is still kind of good. Nommm.

    LTG - Did I read in Zipis's thread that you bought your dress recently?  Did you AW it and I missed it?  If so, link?  If not, pics?

    Irish - assuming I can get this package stuff sorted out, I'm driving about an hour to a shopping center in another town.  I found out recently that there's an Ulta there, along with several other stores I don't have locally, so I decided to take my day off and treat myself.  There's some beauty stuff I legitimately need...  and then there's a lot of stuff I want.  :)
  • Options
    I'm around. Hello everyone!


  • Options
    Elle, that sounds like fun!! I hope you are able to figure out the package stuff. 
    I need to go into like Ulta or something and have them make me over. I do okay, but I am sure that I'm making like, a bajillion mistakes lol

    Hi Beth!

    Hi Irish! Have I said congrats on your engagement? I lose track of people's engagements on here.


  • Options
    Beth, I don't think so, but thanks!! :) I'm still kind of in shock lol. I keep looking at my sparkly :)

    TK is kicking me between universes again. Idk if I'll be back in this one again tonight, but hey! I'm two glasses of wine in a the bottle of champagne is chilling in the fridge for midnight. : oh, and rereading harry potter. Irish, I'm still super giddy for you. But don't schedule your wedding at any point before April 13 or else we're friends off. LTG, did you really buy your dress and not aw it? That's a huge no no

    Aud - I'm jealous of your night! HP and wine = happiness :) I just finished re-reading the series, I'm always a little sad when I finish.

    I know the feeling, Beth. I reread it back in March and now I'm rereading it again. Gotta be ready for trivia with Elle! Today has been a pretty good start to birthday week.

    Glad to hear you're preparing.  Gotta pull your weight if you expect a share of the winnings.  :)

    I so can't wait.  I need to go ahead and book my flight.

    I can't believe you fly in. I'm so jealous. I love flying. If it's under 10 hours, its worth the price in gas though. Hell, we're driving to California in three weeks. On the positives, I get to see tiger, lyn, and hopefully meg. :D And that's days after trivia!

    I'm not a big fan of flying, but I <em>hate</em> the MS to TX drive.  It's so dull and long, and I've already made it 6 times (I think) in the year that we've been here.  As long as I book far enough out, it's the same price to fly and then rent a car locally, and it's well worth the several hours it saves me in time.

    Sorry I was called away to watch TV!

    Yeah, I bought my dress :) uhm... here are some pics:

    This is a flower detail on the waist. It is kind of hard to tell but there is some bling in there. :)

    </div><div>Elle, I get that. The drive to Waco got pretty boring the summer we were LDR-ing it. I went up every other weekend for three months. And that's just a 3 hr drive. I really do enjoy flying though. Like a lot. </div><div>

    Thank you! I'm waiting on my little sis to email me to pictures she took. My kitty had chewed through my cell phone charger (for about the 30th time) so my phone only had 10% battery, and I drove about 2 hours to the bridal salon and didn't want to have a dead phone for the return trip so we just used her phone and camera to take pictures.

    See my above comment. Apparently my kitty loves wires again, and like a real smart person I don't have a car charger. I had also forgotten my REAL camera at home, so that kinda sucked.
