It’s Monday … and everyone knows what a shitty day Monday can be. You know that Jackie Chan Adventures show that use to be on? It seems I’m channeling that today. “Bad Day, Bad Day.”

Oy vey. I tend to keep things positive because I don’t like being all Negative Nancy and I rarely talk bad about work if ever but it really got to me today.

I cannot take it when bosses play favorites.

The kind of music I listen to when I’m unhappy. Sad songs. ha Anyone else use Songza? It’s pretty sweet. I have it on my Android. Loveeeee it!

Receiving this right after work couldn’t have come on a better day. Thank you for friends like these. I won’t be able to make it to her graduations but fingers crossed I can go to her party whenever she’s making it. Yeah yuhh! She is so smart. Look at everything she’s graduating with!!

And on an even happier note … Happy 2nd Anniversary Will & Kate!!

Hopefully the rest of this week will be better. Fingers crossed. (Should be since Bruno is staying for a week!!) There’s always a bad day out of the week, eh?

Happy Monday to the rest of y’all!

[2013] 013/365: Packages & Mail

PicsArt_1361581892573

Arrived home with two packages.

One which is in that sparkly pink pouch that many people know of. If you know what it is, I’m giving them another chance to redeem themselves. I’ll write a little something about it soon.

I also got doggie cookies for the doggies. A lot of it has been crushed. Bad packaging. Sad day. Doggies still enjoyed the one I split for them.

I also did a Mud Mask!! It’s not the kind you smear on, but the fabric kind. It felt very refreshing. Ahhh … loves!

I love lazy nights after such a long week at work.

But what was better was coming home with sissy already there! Happy Day!

Cannot wait for tomorrow night! I get to see my Powerpuff Girls! Yippee!

[2013] 005/365: Valentine’s Day

IMG_20130214_190604

THON begins tomorrow. I wish I was in Penn State with the rest of my FTKers that got to go this year. But it’s okay. FTK lives on no matter where you are in the world. I have it with me pretending I am physically there.

I got a chocolate cover strawberry from a coworker on the down low. It’s pretty sweet since I mean that’s all I wanted for Valentine’s day. The sprinkles makes it that much better. Make me DARK chocolate covered strawberries and I will be your best friend!

The doggie is a card Jane sent me. I feel very special. Her handwriting is to die for. And just getting mail makes me all tingly inside.

Two more red envelopes to add to my collection. Thanks Aunt Katie!

Samantha and I are now sitting on the couch watching Doctor Who. We had dinner of tamales and chili with cornbread. Thanks Sam! Yum Yum in my Tum Tum.

Time to just relax. No work tomorrow and getting to see one of my best friends later that night for the whole weekend? Too excited!

Happy Valentine’s Day y’all!

PV.Body Changes

First things first.

When I read on Alex’s post said that she has handwriting known as the Shabo font … I commented and told her I would like to see it. You know … a picture would do.

But oh she’s a sweetheart. Upon arriving home last night, I got this:

Seriously, the Shabo font should be a font you use on the computer. It’s so pretty and definitely neat. She even threw in a vegenaise coupon. I don’t use mayo much but I will certainly try this! And the sticker. I love love love it.

Thanks, Alex! I love it all! Mail is my favorite thing ever!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And now to some serious matter.

I know today’s post was suppose to be about my trip and all but … as y’all know, I love PV.Body. Until they decided to change their ways.

I got an email a few days ago and haven’t had the time since I was on my business trip.

They started out the company as a place for us to get amazing workout clothes from places like Lululemon. Or so they say. Then got us to promote it because we seriously think it’s such a genius idea. It really is.

But once they got a big enough subscribing number, they dropped the ball that they are going to start up their own line, Ellie, and give those pieces out instead. AND raised the price. Some people didn’t even notice because it automatically charges their cards each month.

When I initially read the email, I thought they were just going to INCORPORATE some pieces of Ellie. Not just have us ONLY receive Ellie.

This is the gist of the email I received:

Ellie is the newest brand in high-end, fashionable women’s athletic wear.  We will have more of what you love – fun, bold, and trendy fitness fashions with a variety of designs. With a new collection every month, Ellie will consistently deliver the latest styles that are exclusively for our members! You can expect to see top quality materials, durable stitching, and of course, the perfect fit!  The best part is that you will get to choose which two pieces you want each month!

Starting February 1st, the pv.body site will redirect viewers to Ellie.com and current pv.body subscriptions will begin receiving theEllie clothing line in their packages.

What the hay!

I’m not saying Ellie won’t be amazing … but I can’t say it will either if I’ve never seen it or tried it out.

The only thing good about it is that we get to pick our two pieces. And the blog and their PV.Body 30 Day Challenge is pretty awesome.

But then again, that’s not why we signed up. We signed up to get brand name workout gear.

And on top of that, in Sarah’s post, Hope from PV.Body stated that it will have fabric like Lululemon. From what I know, that fabric is copyrighted. And Lululemon has NEVER heard of PV.Body. So them using Lululemon’s name to get customers and reselling their things is illegal.

It’s such a disappointment. They could of had something amazing if they just stuck with what they were selling. If they waited to launch Ellie, it would be a different story. But to change everything in less than a month of getting so many people to sign up just feels like a scam.

Hopefully they fix all of their problems pronto because they are losing so many customers and getting many bad reviews.

Eat Cake, Get Boy … Seriously

Working Out

One of the best feelings in the world? Starting a new workout plan. Let’s do this!

Lots of cardio and strength training!

I feel a little tired afterward but no soreness. Ask me again tomorrow.

Work

IMG_20120910_081324

Work is going well. On some days, I get coffee with the co-s. You can see Dopey in the background. He’s the only decoration I own in my office.

Since we’re on the work topic, we just found out our whole floor will be moving into a different building – not sure when exactly but sometime soon. EVERYONE will have cubicles except for the high high up. I heard these will be fancy cubes. Fingers crossed I get a window seat.

Maybe once we move I will buy some things and decorate my office. Anyone know where I can buy cheap, pretty things to do so?

YOLO? Dumbo.

I saw this on my Facebook feed and I shared it with practically everyone I saw today.

You already know what I’m going to say …

I Love Mail

Seriously loving opening the mailbox and seeing that something belongs to me. The same goes with email. They are so much better than a text or Facebook message. No doubt.

I would put up the picture of the Cosmopolitan and Women’s Health but I am too lazy to cross off my name/address. I’m sure you can picture magazines in your head.

Plus, getting things like this is always nice. Alyssa & Greg’s thank you card from the wedding. I know it’s a must to write thank you cards but I never give to expect something in return … even if it’s just a thank you. Seriously, to me, I think them letting me be a part of their wedding is them giving me something. I got to be there for my best friend from high school. Someone I will always treasure in my heart. Thank you, Alyssa. And Greg, you got a good one. Treat her well.

Eat Cake … Get Boy

20120910_202445

I came home and the first thing Mum told me was “EAT CAKE … GET BOYFRIEND.” Really now?

Apparently if you eat this type of cake, you will get a boyfriend. If you already have a boyfriend, he will treat you so well. Same if you’re married.

In my head, I’m obviously saying … bullsh*t. But I eat it anyways. Can you guess what kind it is?

Red Velvet … with Cream Cheese Frosting. In other words, my workout done earlier was useless.

If this is true (which I doubt), I guess I rarely get boyfriends because I don’t really like eating sweets therefore pass up Red Velvet a lot. This will explain why some girls I know that love red velvet always has a new guy after breaking up with one two seconds before. And because I like baking goods, like Red Velvet, and give it away it’s like a metaphor … I give away the guy I like to the friend because I don’t like fighting.

So … guess that explains it.

Thanks Red Velvet … for solving this dilemma for me.

Time Flies

IMG_20120909_125704

Lately I’ve been cleaning my room. Well, sissy and I have and we found stacks of magazines. Some from the 1990s!

Remember the magazine from above? It’s from August 14, 2000. Time sure flies!

Guess Brad and Jennifer ate a lot of Red Velvet since the divorce … It’ll explain how they both got someone new …

*****************

Sissy and Bruno came home. Time to hang out with them a little before heading to bed.

TGTBLIG!
