I Just Had to Share

I don't want anyone to misconstrue the following as some sort of announcement, because I can assure you it is not.

Today I was in historic downtown McKinney, TX which is filled with the cutest boutiques and antique shops. I went into this store called The Abode (I really wish they had a website so everyone could appreciate this store). Anyway, they had the cutest diaper bags I have ever seen. Really, I was so taken in by them that I made sure to write the brand down for future reference. But I think this is just too great of a discovery to keep to myself.

The brand is called Kalencom. Check out a sampling here. Aren't they fabulous? Ok, I know I just sounded like Kimora Lee Simmons, but seriously, I am really in love with these bags.

A World Series Rant

Even though my interest is slim to none in the World Series, I did watch some of the game tonight. And all I could think of was the following:

Ok, seriously, why would anyone name their son Coco Crisp? I mean first off, Coco should never be a man's name. It is a nickname for a girl. Coco Chanel, Coco Cox-Arquette, etc... And to add insult to injury, don't name your son Coco if his last name is Crisp. Am I wrong here, people?

In other news, Quinn and I have been having a lot of spending time with each other the past week. He even went with me and saw Elizabeth: The Golden Age. Is not he a good husband? I enjoyed the movie overall although it wasn't as amazing as I had hoped. I've never seen the first Elizabeth, which I heard is amazing, so watching this definitely made me want to watch it. Now if only Lindsay will hurry up and buy the DVD player that edits movies so I can watch it it all its edited glory.

This Post is for Kristen and Any Other Yankee Fans Out There

How are we feeling about this?

First off, I must admit that I only casually followed the Yanks this year. Primarily this is due to the horrid start they had to the season. I just couldn't bear to get into it only to be so let down. Towards the end of the season as things started to get interesting I followed a little more closely. I still could not get fully invested. Good thing too as true to recent form, they were once again booted early from the playoffs. Anyway, all that being said, I can't say I hate the idea of a new manager. Don't get me wrong, I love Torre and he has done amazing things for the team during his twelve years, but lets be serious, something has got to change. With the talent and payroll that they Yankees have they should not be struggling like they have been. I'm not saying I expect the World Series every year, but come on, can they at least be in contention for the AL East through most of the season instead of just always making some miraculous push right at the end of the season and ending up with the Wild Card by the skin of their teeth??? Am I asking too much??

There have been rumors swirling around The Guildhall that changes were being made to the program and that the internship might be on its way out. Apparently, it is like a vacation for the students and they have a hard time ramping back up again (since they are only working 8 hours a day vs. the 16-18 hours a day they put in as students). Also, it seems that companies often want the students to stay and not go back to school. Being the impatient person that I am, I was anxious for the official announcement. Would Quinn be living somewhere else starting in January? Would he be getting out of school earlier than planned or would the push the internship to the end? Well, the official announcement is apparently going to be made on Monday but the long and short of it is that Quinn will now be graduating in July 2008. They are getting rid of the internship and making 8 week "modules" instead of 12 week terms. So when he starts back in January he will only have to finish 3 8 week "modules" and then he is finished. So I will have my husband back in 9 to 10 months instead of another 12!! I'm very excited.

I've finally given in

After much harassment from my lack of posting I'm finally going to answer one of the tags I received a while back from my cousin Lacy.
Normally I'm opposed to such practices such as tagging but since I've had blogger's block I figured I can use it as an excuse to throw something up here for the world to read. Plus it is 1:30 in the morning and I need something to do since I can't seem to sleep. So here it goes...five little known facts about me (to most people anyway).

1. I have very little feeling in my bottom lip and chin. At first this was a bit of a problem when eating etc...but in the 10+ years that this has been the case I've grown accustom and barely even notice it anymore. When I was 19 I had surgery on my jaw where basically they broke it and then put it back together with screws. I was warned that I might not get all feeling back and indeed they were right. So if you ever see me with food on my chin/lip its most likely there because I can't feel it.

2. When I was in my tween/early teen years I hated the freckles on my arms and tried to only wear long sleeve shirts. I've since embraced my complete lack of pigment and freckles.

3. At one point in my life I was a member of Team Celine. That is right, I actually paid money to join her fan club and I do not regret it. I think I got a Celine Dion pen, mouse pad and a fancy certificate. Totally worth the 50 bucks.

4. I never understood the fascination people had with squeezing other people's blackheads, pimples, etc... but since I've been married, I totally get it. Oh the satisfaction!

5. I knew after about 3 weeks of knowing Quinn that I was going to marry him. It only took him another year or so to come around but eventually he did!!!

The Shunning

My brother Cameron has instituted The Dwight K. Schrute Permashunned Experience. He has been shunning, unshunning and reshunning me all week over IM. So this clip (that he sent me during one of my temporary unshuns) is for him.
