What a week! I had such lofty intentions for work this week and my plans got a little side-tracked! Hopefully I’ll be back to a little more regular posting next week – but no promises. :) After I made a quick trip up to Edmond on Tuesday I brought back a visitor- my 5 year old nephew! His brother was at church camp and he seemed like he could use a little getaway! I think he got more than he bargained for though as he got to experience his first tornado. Oops.
There were actually three of these at the same time. Three.
Some local meteorologists later said they might have been “landspouts” or something like that (which can still produce winds up to 200mph, but WHATEVER, I’m calling them tornadoes). So that was mildly exciting. :)
Wednesday was a little calmer and my nephew and I spent a lot of time playing “super puppies” (acting like puppies who also have ninja/spy skills) and he pretty much forbid me from working, hence no post for yesterday. You can blame him completely. (He won’t care.)
Now that I’ve made my excuses…let’s get to Friday Favorites!
1. The Costa Rica Giveaway Winner!
Well, I wore the pink necklace to dinner last night because the winner that was selected wants the black necklace! (Which worked out well because I really wanted the pink!) Congratulations to Edye! I’ll be in touch soon to get your mailing address!
2. ANOTHER GIVEAWAY!!
Since you didn’t win the last giveaway (unless you’re Edye, of course!) you better enter the NEW GIVEAWAY!! It’s a surprise giveaway but will include beauty and style items, of course! (And it will be worth at least $50. I promise it will be GOOD!)
3. Good Fitting Room Lighting
I think we can all appreciate when a store has really good lighting in the dressing rooms. Trying on clothing can be draining, especially mentally and emotionally, right? So I never understand how a clothing store can justify taking the time to design their fitting rooms with bad lighting. The stores that do take the time to do it right? We’ll buy more! (Seriously, do some research.) Anyway, I just wanted to brag on the Marshalls on Penn in OKC. Fantastic lighting, large dressing rooms with big mirrors plus a huge mirror outside. Everything I tried on looked so much better and I was more than thrilled with the black maxi dress I picked up. Keep it up, Marshalls, I’ll be back!
