Someone else's misfortune

A few weeks ago, during our last ice storm, I was sitting at my desk when I heard a huge crash. I thought, OMG, the ceiling has fallen on my boss. As I hopped up I heard, what the hell, come from his office so I knew he was ok. He came out saying someone had hit the corner of the building. We walked outside to see what happened and sure enough there sat a truck up over the bush and into the building. Luckily no one was hurt. That is if you don't count having the holy hell scared out of us all!

As it turned out the carpet was ripped up so we ended up getting carpet for the whole downstairs which meant new carpet for my area. Yay! I have worked here for many years but I was in another area for a few years. Since I moved I haven't done much to my spot due to the fact that the way the desk sat it was impossible to get cords down the side and things hooked up where they should be. It is also impossible without professional help to move the desk. Not to mention it's the main spot for telephone/internet equipment which was right under my feet and nothing set up where it should be. It's been a thorn in my side for sometime but there was really nothing I could do about it until now. The way I looked at it was I have a window and a vent next to my feet. I pretty much just worked with what I had and pushed all the cords and boxes up against the wall as far as I could. I feel now it would have been worth my while to hire someone to move the desk for me but as they say, hind sight is 20-20. I wish I had gotten a true beforehand picture but I didn't think about it at the time. I kind of had to get everything out of the desks in a hurry so they could lay the carpet while I was out for a couple days.

Once I got everything hooked back up and placed where it should be I was so tickled I decided it was time to do a bit of decorating and get some other new stuff. The guys who installed the carpet left the desk out from the wall so I could do what I needed to and then they came and put it back where it needed to be. They even got the divider between me and the door flush with the wall so no more windy drafts. I couldn't be happier. I even have the phone on the side I like to answer it on. I bought several items. I got myself a new chair and mat, a new computer stand, a clock and baskets for files. I plan to pick up a couple plants for some greenery but I think I'm all set now :o)

I found an old typewriter down in the basement a long time ago and thought to myself if I ever decorated that I would use it. I finally got my chance so I got it down and cleaned it up the best I could. I sat it on top of my shelf. Another item I like is a pretty cardinal coffee cup I brought from home to use for pens and such. I'm still working on organizing my drawers and baskets but I really like the outcome! I may even end up being more efficient but time will tell on that one! lol

I Have Officially Retired My Ugg Boots For The Season
My Ugg boots are probably my favorite shoewear. I love them! My feet have a tendency to get cold but not while wearing these. I have read that men don't like them but I think they are cute as can be and my hubby doesn't complain. Yes, I even like them with shorts. Although I only wear them with jeans. With the sun finally coming out, sadly it's time to place them at the back of my closet.
Top: ModCloth Jeans: Levi's 515
The top I have on is the most softest thing I own and was purchased at my favorite internet clothing shop...ModCloth. It is the The-Great-Estate-Dress and is currently sold out. They have some really cool, unique items. This was listed as a dress but was a bit short for me since you can see through the bottom layer. I pulled it up a bit and it was perfect as a top with my Levis. It would be cute with leggings or a short skirt and tights too.  I'm still trying to get out of my Levis and into some more stylish outfits but I love them so. Still …

The Cabbage Patch Kids inspired crochet hat

I just love Cabbage Patch Kids! Years ago my dad went on a mission to get me one when they were hard to find. With the invent of the internet you can almost find anything these days but back in the day it wasn't so easy. He finally succeeded but there was always a story about what a time he had. He was able to get me two in the long run. The first a little boy named Bobby George (my dad's name was Bobby also) just in case he couldn't get his hands on a girl with red hair. Luckily eventually someone was able to get the girl doll for him to give to me. I was so pleased to get them and he was so happy giving them to me that it is a memory I will always treasure. Whenever I think of Cabbage Patch dolls I always think of him. I get them out once in awhile and clean them up but I hope to display them after I paint my second bedroom which I hope to make whimsical and colorful. Arlene looked like she could use a bit of sprucing up when I got her out for pictures so I'm not su…

Dreaming of the Red Hot Chili Peppers

Ok, so last night I had a dream that I was standing on the roof watching the Red Hot Chili Peppers play "The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie" and I was featured in the video. I was looking great in a cute outfit with some type of hat and having a ball! lol The next thing I know I'm running through the jungle looking worse for wear with a dinosaur chasing me.  We watched an episode of Terra Nova and then Jurassic Park III was on so I know why I was dreaming of dinosaurs but where did the Red Hot Chili Peppers come from? I was so excited I woke up and had to pee!

How cool can you get?
I love a man that cooks! Although Flea scares me a bit!
Now this is a fashion statement if I ever saw one.

Saturday was date night!

♥ Dress:  Modcloth ♥ Sweater:  Ralph Lauren ♥ Booties: Modcloth-boots
On Saturday morning snoozing late was a must after all that booze on Friday night. After finally getting up I was still tired and since my favorite show recorded the night before I wanted to watch it while I tried to wake up. I absolutely love Haven! Although it's just one more reason to stay out of Maine :o) Art got up early and went to breakfast with his brothers and washed the car so I had the house to myself. If I wanted to watch tv in the morning, why not? I mean I was going to be another year older the next day so I figured I could do whatever I wanted. Although not productive I didn't have to wonder what strange occurrences were happening in that strange little town. I did finally get up and do a bit of housework since my family were coming over the next day for cake but I only gave it a lick and a promise. Before I knew it it was time to get ready. I bought my dress from Modcloth when they had the …
