Our salesperson took everybody out to lunch at Barnacle Bud's a place I've never even heard of but is basically in Bay View. It's very cute and on the water, but veg items were hard to come by. We sat down and she said that drinking was allowed so we all had a nice afternoon cocktail, which is making me sleepy.

Then we got back to work, and Wendy just came around and said everyone could leave today at 3pm. Guess what I'm going to do? Take a nap!

I guess good things do happen when your CEO gets fired.

I am not a shoe store. I broke up with a girl and am selling off items that she left around. This includes her Coach shoe collection. Many shoes were worn and I sold those off to family and friends. However, there are some that have not been worn and I figured I'd throw them on eBay to try and sell them.


I live in a smoke free and pet free environment. All items are double checked before shipping to make sure there are no defects upon shipment.


I don't know much about any of the shoes. Hopefully the pictures will say enough.


I am honest with the items I sell....Please contact me immediately if there is any problem or concern. Because of the new feedback policy, please try to work with me before leaving any neutral or negative feedback. Thank you again for your interest! Any questions? Feel free to email me!!

I got into work early yesterday so we could make the 8 am train to Chicago. We got to our Chicago office at 10 after a stop at Jamba, and there weren't any computers for us. So from 10-12 I read various magazines and text messaged people. Our meeting started at noon, and it was awesome. It was me, my boss, 2 other recruiters, 2 consultants from my company, and then the people from Snap-On. Can I just say it was really awesome just being a part of a high level meeting, and seeing the progress on things we made? This is the part of business, and consulting that I really like. It's not boring BS (although one lady actually braided her hair and I thought about throwing something at her) and it was productive. And yummy! We had fantastic lunch from some crazy ass place called Hannah's Bretzle (?) or something. All I know is that their website does not post nutritional information which is annoying and should be illegal.

Anyway, we literally had to run to the train and made it by a few minutes. Then I had to run to my car (actually my boss dropped me off) and I made it to school with about 5 minutes to spare. Diet Mt. Dew and pretzels were my dinner. In class we were assigned our groups. Yes, ASSIGNED. The one time in my graduate career where I actually know and am friends with two awesome girls, we can't pick our own groups. So these groups were assigned based on our location and interests. I put tennis and dogs. Elina put dogs, so we're in the same group. Wendy didn't put dogs, so she isn't in our group but that is ok. Elina and I have a group with two pretty nice looking dudes, so I'm hoping it'll work well.

I've decided I hate my scale. I was going to try not to weigh myself at all until Saturday*, but I did yesterday and today. Depending where I step, there is almost a 2 pound difference, wtf!? I'm going with the lower number.

*I know there is a big debate about weighing daily, but it's really what I've found works for best for me. And it's the greatest damage control ever.

Today after work I'm going tanning, glasses shopping, swimming, and then meeting up with my buddies at Tom's house so I can prove to him I still am fun.


Life is really good right now and it almost feels weird being this happy. Wait, it would feel weird if I was this happy, and incredibly well rested. The end.

I was up at 4:47 am this morning in order to make it to the 5:15 am body pump class at Innovative. It's such an awesome class - I love it! I seriously felt good afterwards, went home, showered and made it into work 30 minutes early.

We'll see if I crash hard in class tonight.

Since I moved to Milwaukee in 2002, I've only been going to 1 hair salon, Beauty. And besides my dear friend Kelly who made me a red head, only about 3 certain people have done my hair in the past 6 years. To say I'm picky about my hair would be an understatement. It's one of the few things where I completely buy the best product, shampoo, etc for myself.

Anyway, it's time to get my color touched up before some events next week and Kelly is busy the next two weeks and with my class schedule I have no time to see her. So I took the plunge and booked with someone new at Beauty. I know the girl pretty well, but she's never done my hair. And I'm just really nervous about it now. It's just a touch up so it's a simple operation, and as long as I don't end up orange I suppose all will be all right.

Ok, I'm going to quit being a nerd and worry about more important things like my final group project, getting to Madison Saturday, world peace, and the fact I just now found out about www.ihasahotdog.com

I can't copy an image because of stupid auto-zoom, but please click this link and give me your opinion. It's so rare to find king size anything for $99, especially one from Anthro.

Ms. Brand was my morbidly obease 7th grade math teacher. She drank M&Ms out of a coffee cup during class. I'll never forget how excited she was when she bought a brand new Saturn, and she told us kiddos, eons away from driving, that one day we'd know how she felt when we got our first brand new car.

Well, Saturday was that day for me.

Here's my new baby. I'm going to keep her for 6 years. I know you dudes are prolly tired of me talking about cars all the time, and I need to make this one last. Amazingly my car payment only went up about $30 a month, and since Progressive dropped my rate before I got this one, my insurance rate is still lower than it was on the wagon.
