You have GOT to be kidding me

So I'm walking through Hobby Lobby (yeah, that's right! I love that place!) and I'm checking out the summer decorations to potentially hang on my front door.

And then.... there it is.......
an entire two aisles dedicated to

You have got to be kidding me!!!! Seriously?!? In JUNE?!?! We haven't even celebrated the 4th of July, Columbus Day or Labor Day! I thought Thanksgiving was early but I can handle it. Then the tall, fake Christmas trees started making appearances around Halloween.

But JUNE!?!? This just stresses me out! Well if they think I'm going to start my Christmas shopping in June, they've got another thing coming.

My Husband, My Hero

He really is. I'd be so lost without him.

I consider myself a morning person after I have gotten out of bed.
That's the thing... actually getting up and running is the hardest part.

Every morning he helps me decide what I'm going to wear and chases down my blue flip flops or my missing UGG as I recreate the scene from "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" where she learns how to put contacts in. As I run out the door, he hands me my keys, a Bolthouse and my cell phone and waves to me as I pull out of the driveway. What a perfect way to start my day.

Pamela vs. mxq

Just in case you're curious....

My husband and I share an email account. We both comment on very different types of blogs. Depending on who has used it last, you might see my picture with mxq tagged to it. He didn't comment, though. I did. He likes dogs and nail polish. Just not enough to comment about them.

Stay tuned. We will work through this kink together.

Deep Thoughts by Pamela Quigley

I know this has been posted on other blogs that we all frequent but I have been thinking and I just wanted to say that I've come to the realization that you guys (from stlwed) probably know me better than my real friends. Seriously! I feel like we talk about way more stuff. I can post any thought I have in my head (like i am right now) via blog or thread and half the time, when I see my "real" friends, the thought is forgotten or I just don't think to tell them. I know we've had this discussion before at the GNOs (Girls Night Out) but honestly, most of you have become my real friends. I wouldn't have it any other way. See? Look at how much fun we have!

Ok... enough with the sappy talk!

I usually try to be more humble than this but I am just so excited!!! I got a new car!!! It is an Audi A4 Quattro- which means it has 4-wheel drive- which makes me feel so much safer in our crazy Missouri weather.

Now... I know what you're thinking.... "but Pamela, your Honda was so wonderful! What happened to it?" Well, I will tell you. Michael always drove an Audi but his lease was up. Mine doesn't end until October 2009 and since I'm climbing up in the miles (and we live 3 miles from his job) he's taking the Honda and I get to drive the new car. Sweet deal, right? I thought so!

PS This is my first post including a picture. Proud of me?

It has been a while

It has been a pretty slow day and to be honest- I haven't felt all that witty lately... I stole this from Teresa's blog:

1- The number of how miles I can walk in heels before I start complaining.
2- The number of times I have gone #1 today.
3- The number of flower girls we had in our wedding.
4- The number of co-workers I'd like to kick at any given time in the day.
5- The number of fingers on my hand.
6- The number days I can listen to one playlist before I go nuts and have to make a new one.
7- On this day, God rested.
8- The pounds lost for my wedding. (Also- the number of pounds gained since my wedding)
9- The amount of interviews I scheduled for today.
10- The number of times I checked my email from work today- but add another zero or two.
11- The amount of open positions at my company that I need to fill. YIKES!
12- The number siblings my parents have combined.
13- The number of times I rolled my eyes at a stupid resume today.
14- I'm tired of this game....
