Do any of my plus size friends have any favorite on line sites for lingerie?

Sunday, October 28, 2007

OK.I am worn smack out.

Today was a day just for me....well, me and my credit card. I needed a day to shop. I spent the whole day in Atlanta.I hit 4 different malls. Yeah!!!! I haven't been to Atlanta since I met Mick there over a month ago. I spent almost 300 bucks. I found several tops, some sexy lingerie, and some beauty products from the Body shop. I use their tea tree oil, seaweed wash and I am trying some of their eyeshadow. They are earth and animal friendly....both of which make me happy.

Those of you who have been with my blog for a year or more know their are 2 things God did NOT give me...

1.) a green thumb

2.) a sense (okay--ANY SENSE) of direction.

I was so proud of myself for getting to 4 malls in Atlanta all by myself--ok help from Map quest..but still. Atlanta is soooooooooooooooo spread out. N'awlins is not...It has tons of one way streets, but it is tiny in comparison.

I did manage to hit wal-mart when i made it back home, but unfortunately the pharmacy was closed...so I left with cut frozen okra instead. Tomorrow, I make Gumbo. (before the Saints game)---AMEN we finally have a cool breeze outside. I LOVE COOL WEATHER.

Ok, I'll leave you with a thought or two..as I attempt to go beddy bye.

Thanks..may this Wed truly have a HUMP of happiness shoved into it!!!!

Yep. This is how my day went----

Mean people SUCK. Especially those who try to make up for their inadequacies by being BOSSY.

I heard "Our Lips are Sealed" on the radio this morning and I can't get it out of my head.

Lazy, that's me. I took this weekend and only did a few things that are worthy of mentioning. I changed sheets, did laundry, took out trash, and paid bills.
I am trying to make myself get started on a PowerPoint presentation and I am totally not motivated. I have several projects for my night class and I can't seem to want to start to put my brain in gear~
I got some really bad news the end of last week and I have been really sad about it. Tigger is my 20 yr old kitty that is at my parents house. He was named after John Taylor the bassist in Duran Duran. He has been the coolest kitty in the world. He has had a tough time with arthritis in the last 2 years. The vet has tried some meds and its helped some. Well, he went for his annual last week along with Boris his best playmate who is 16. Tigger has muscle cancer. Hi has a cyst that has developed on his tail bone. The doc said with his age, that surgery probably isn't an option. Boris has lost 6 pounds in the last year, he looks really ill. The vet did blood work on him and thinks he has a thyroid problem. If that turns out the be the case he may have 6 months.

I took these pictures when I was home for Linda's wedding a month or so ago. Please pray for my man. He has the sweetest disposition and such a way with people.

Finally you are getting to see some of my birthday concert pics. I love this fella!!!!

AMEN . Yes, I said AMEN.

It is finally Friday. I have to do a couple of things but nothing compared to what I did last Friday night. I'm a bit ready to relax, and by God I deserve it!

I do have a couple of projects to work on for my class at the college..but other than that...I am free as a bird to sleep late, love on my kitties and watch football. There are several SEC games tomorrow and My Saints play Atlanta Sunday at 1:00. I got TONS of grief from my Atlanta Falcons fans at school. So my boys have to represent as my kids would say this Sunday!

I am currently munching on Doritos and a couple of cheese cubes left over from the luncheon. I brought home a really yummy squash casserole for dinner from school today. I refuse to cook.

Hope all is well in your world.

OK FINALLY I added my pics to kodak easy share. I did have 293 of them. So I will slowly share them with ya'll over the next week or so...I mean I figured 300 of them you'd rather not have on one post...besides you need to see something in between all of my complaints RIGHT?????
This was my centerpiece for out luncheon last weekend. Fresh cut flower blooms, a few rocks and water. They were nice floating!

This was one of the place settings. I wish I had taken a good picture of my Goblets. They are crystal etched Fleur De Lis glasses. I found them at the hospital gift shop when my mom had surgery about 6 months ago.

Looking at this pic, I wished I had opened the blinds just a bit. Oh well.

One of the best parts was desert! A chocolate DOBERGE cake from New Orleans...Gambino's bakery.

Why does chocolate have to taste so damn good????

I didn't sleep real well last night.

You have just entered my own pity party.

I'm single.

I spent my whole paycheck for the month and then some = (

I feel alone.

I'm fat.
I'm tired.

Ok now that I have that off of my chest. I am not a morning person. YUK.

My SAINTS finally won a game!!! WAHOOOOO!!!!!!! It was a good game against Seattle Seahawks~~~

The weekend went well. The luncheon was a hit. I have people asking for recipes! My Fleur De Lis Goblets (crystal etched ) were a hit...and my red beans, my brushetta shrimp any my tomato basil soup--it is so rich. Things went well, i got compliments on everything it seemed. The silver, my house, my wood floors, my decor and most importantly the food. I assure you no one left hungry! = )

Not to mention after all of that work my house is spotless, and I refuse to clean anything besides dishes and laundry for 2 weeks.

I took a few pics--not many but I will share sometime this week.

No make up news to share today...besides MAKE UP SURE HELPS ME FEEL BETTER !!!!

So her kids made her cards earlier in the week and today they are throwing her a surprise party. They brought chips, dip, ice cream, cupcakes and coca cola....They are going to get her in the bathroom to surprise her as they set up the room.

Chicken Ambassador--which is chicken stuffed with spinach and cream cheese along with a sweet potato casserole

Drinks: Red or white wine, tea or a mixed drink of choice.

Your comments REALLY ??? BE kind or not. I will not be insulted!!!

I felt REALLY yuckky today. My day just started awful. I woke to my house alarm going off at 4:30 this morning. I freak out and think someone is in my house. I grab my gun...and start prowling. The security people called to see if I was alive.
I am left with two options. The alarm was so loud whomever ran like hell the other way or the wind was fierce and blew a window and the contact point may have been jiggled. Needless to say I did not get back to sleep.
I realize my tummy is NOT happy with me. I am a type 2 diabetic. My doctor has been on me to take Glucophage on a regular basis. Well, after my doc visit last week, I have really been trying to get into a routine. The problem is that it TEARS up my stomach. I have to eat with it. I have tried just a glass of milk and no can do. He says it takes some people a month to adjust other a year, but that I needed to keep trying. Well, I took 2 pills yesterday. One at lunch and one with dinner. I was a miserable woman this morning. He wants me taking 4 pills a day. OMG
I tried to call subfinder only to find out it was out of order. Luckily, I woke up a sub at 6:00 a.m. and she took my classes. Then I called a co- worker ok two co workers and my principal. Then I typed up lesson plans. I mean damn I worked more this morning before 6:30 than I do all all morning on some days.
Any suggestions on the coating of tummy? Christine? Any others with Type 2?
I am going for some pepto and then to bed...... in hopes of sound sleep.

I am a bit bummed that I haven't had many comments as of late. *sad face* = + (

I skipped class last night and went shopping for a new tv stand for my other bedroom that I am trying to redecorate. I finally found one for 100 bucks at Big Lots. Well, Angel drove me around in her dad's truck until we found something. Well, I called Romeo across the street and got his voice mail. He called me back about ten minutes later. I asked him to meet me at my house and help us unload this HEAVY box from her truck. Sure enough he came over, helped us carry this in and he put it together! I spent 2 1/2 hours. He is so sweet and funny. I really like him. I made it clear that he is never home. He spends so much time at the girlfriends house. *sigh*

He met Angel for the first time. He had her laughing in stitches. He does just enough to flirt with me....She thought he was cute and fun to be with. I REALLY wish he was single!

Well, how does your world feel today?

Make Up Mondays

A *quickie*---we all know those can be sometimes!! (= P )

Ladies, when you are applying foundation or concealer---NEVER use your index finger. It has more power than your middle or fourth finger. It will stretch your skin and do more damage. Especially in the delicate eye area.

This is what LSU was serving as they played against Fla this evening. It was a hell of a game! I mean WOW. Back and forth and I really enjoyed each quarter.....I love my football!!!!

Now if Only My SAINTS can provide the same sort of stamina tomorrow against Carolina.

It's Saturday...I don't have any kids!!!!! Wahoooooo
Sorry it has been a hectic week. I am happy to have some peace and quiet.

I do have TONS I mean TONS of stuff to do at home. I bought a new coffee and end tables last weekend and I am waiting for the Ashley to deliver them. I have dishes to do, a dishwasher to unload....bills to pay, laundry to do, boxes to consolidate...garbage to throw out. Can I tell you tons of shit! I need a maid here with me today, preferably one that locks like Matthew Mc or Keith Urban or Alec Baldwin...in a pair of shorts and a duster....I don't want much.

OK, so my day went alright. ........

I made it through the day okay. I decided to work when I got home. I am in the process of resorting and decluttering one of my bedrooms---that I have forever called the "cat room". It houses their food, treats, toys and litter boxes. It also holds 7 or 8 boxes of stuff along with my treadmill, an entertainment center and a TV....It did hold my DVDs and my old cassettes (yes, people I am that ancient when it comes to my music) You are lucky I didn't say vinyl.

I was sorting through and mind you managed to ditch 2 garbage bags full of stuff...my door bell rings~ I look to see whose car is here...no car. So I throw my school clothes back on and find Romeo at my door. I feel like I looked like crap as I had my hair up and feeling in the declutter mood. He comes in and say you don't have any light s on...well, Yes I do...but there on in the back bedroom because I am working in there....So he decides to make it clear he came for a visit. So i go in the living room, put my stuff down and turn on a light. Our conversations go well. His grandmother just found out she has cancer in her lymph nodes. She is 83 so he's a bit concerned even though they don't have the best relationship. The girlfriend is still in the picture. I enjoy his company---but I would have finished those boxes if he hadn't made it over here. Oh well. He was here 2 1/2 hours. He just left.

I'm going to grab a bite of dinner and shower......

Will my timing ever be right?
