I’m not much of a shoe-girl … I can’t walk in heels and I’m more into comfort than style. That said – these are amazing!
Apparently, they are from the Alexander McQueen winter/fall collection? I have no freaking idea … I’d never be able to walk in them – but they sure are marvelous!
Let me preface this by saying – this is FULL of spoilers! Don’t read it if you haven’t watched the season finale of The Walking Dead!
Ok, so …
So, it’s Sunday – so as usual I am late to the party. But my friend Elizabeth has this fun ‘meme’ and I want to participate – plus, I know she’ll be ok with me being late. She’s cool like that.
This week – I am asked to choose my five favorite authors!
- JK Rowling
- Stephen King
- Anne Rice
- VC Andrews
- Suzanne Collins (she wrote The Hunger Games – which I am currently obsessed with!)
Check out more Friday Fives!
What are you saving!? Everyone woke up late and didn’t want to get out of bed! The Boy-child missed the bus and I had to wake up the Fairy-Baby and take Boy-Child to school! Plus – I have a splitting headache and am running out of time before I have to take the baby for a doctor visit. I chugged my coffee and ate some cheese cubes; still hungry! I want some Bojangles!
Bleh … I’m not working today, maybe I can convince the baby to take a nap later …
My fab husband “allowed” me to drop him and the kids off at home and wander around the craft store for over an hour last night! It was therapeutic certainly – I needed a “night out” even if it was a short one.
I was on a quest to pick up some ribbon to make some hairbows for my daughter – nothing fancy since I’m really not wanting to get into making all those insane “designer” hairbows. I have enough friends I can order them from!
I was also on the hunt for some trinkets and bits to make a necklace. I found a sweet “steampunk” style necklace over on Pinterest and I was dying to try and recreate it! I found a lot of similar charms at the craft store. Just missing a small rose-looking “bead” of some sort. The necklace I’m trying to recreate is pictured to the left.
I found some light silver wings – which I’m not crazy about so I picked up some metallic coppery paint and some metallic “gun metal” colored paint and will see which color will mesh best with the other charms I purchased.
I’m excited to see how this turns out! I haven’t made jewelry (or anything else for that matter) in awhile now!
Okay, you don’t hear that often – I mean that someone actually likes their dentist – but really, I do. I asked friends where they go for dentistry in Virginia Beach and my friend Melissa takes her kids to Dr. Bredologos and has been for years. When I called to make my own appointment (well – one for me and also my seven year old as well) we were assigned Dr. Mendrinos (who is actually the sister of Dr. Bredologos!)
My first appointment – the first cleaning I’ve had in over 5 years – took forever. I don’t take care of my teeth like I should and the poor hygienist had to scrape the hell out of my teeth. She chatted with me while she worked and was super nice. I realized though that I had been gripping the seat handles the entire time.
The next visit was a cavity fill – a BIG one – and I was so incredibly amped up and nervous. The last time I had work done on my teeth was my wisdom teeth removal and it was hell! It hurt – everything hurt – even the giant needle they used to numb me up. I even screamed during the appointment because I was absolutely FREAKING OUT! But – as soon as Dr. Mendrinos began to talk to me about my nervousness it went out the window. I was worried I’d flip out and asked her if I could have “the gas” and she said she didn’t think I’d need it but if at ANY time during the procedure I felt that I was losing it she’d give it to me. I barely felt her numbing my mouth and didn’t feel anything during the procedure. Between Dr. Mendrinos and her hygienist talking to me during the procedure – I was completely calm.
They is a relaxing aura about the place. I’ve never EVER felt that at any dentist office. I’m seriously going to miss them once we move to Hawaii and I have to find a new dentist!
Hey – I wasn’t paid ANYTHING or even asked to write this. I just wanted to! Just letting you know!
