On October 26th Pottery Barn is offering a complimentary class on decorating. My question is, Does a super cool decorating class with ideas for free on God's day qualify for breaking the Sabbath or Enhancing it?

OH!! And PS: Saks is having their Friends and Family Sale this weekend as well- I have the coupon, so email me if you want a copy: It works at Off Saks 5th too...

Trouble Express...

It seems as though Express may be having some trouble. I don't feel one bit of guilt for capitalizing on the poor position of the market either. The Friends and Family sale starts today, get the coupon here.

Great Fasion Finds~

Buy one get one half off Mania, is what some could call it. Express just ended their little fall gift to us on Monday, but don't fret because New York & Co. has theirs in full swing. This fabulous city cardigan comes in assorted colors for $24 and then buy your second item 1/2 off! Plus find fabulous button down shirts for only $8. Ask yourself, how can this be wrong?

Old Navy is having a fabulous sale right now- The fall sale boasts 50% off of falls hottest items: Rugby's and Henley's for $10, Boyfriend Cardigans for $14- but a sale isn't needed to find this great scarf for only $9.99. (The sale is online only)

Aaaand Back to Hair:

This picture inspired me from the moment it happened. It wasn't posted at the time I made my original hair post (I went with the Aniston bob by the way), but I love it. Samantha from America's Next Top Model, lucked out with this do. Some others had some pretty horrible things happen to their heads.... Jocelyn continues to annoy the ever-liven pack of ribs out of me, but I find pleasure in the fact that trany-Isis and Palin protege Hannah are out for the count.

Go Samantha!

Left Over Madness

Doug and I have been trying to eliminate waste... OK, I have been trying to eliminate waste and cook more efficiently. I have found some create ideas about how to use left overs creatively. One website is Love Food hate waste, and the other is Recipe Goldmine.

My favorite comes from Recipe Goldmine, in the form of Roast Beef recipes. When we bought a side of beef last year, we had no idea just how much Roast we would be getting.

Roast Beef
— Cut into 1/4-inch slices. Dip into beaten egg, then into dry bread crumbs. Fry the slices in oil or butter until hot and golden.
— Put into a crock pot with some canned green chiles, a little cumin, a little garlic, and a little water. Cook until the beef is easily shredded, then use as a taco or burrito filling.
— Top meat slices with cooked onions and peppers and provolone cheese; serve on hoagie rolls.

Happy Cooking!

Winter Shoes

So... it's that time of year! The time when we all start thinking of what we will put on our feet this winter season. How important is this past-time... very important.

Without it you could possibly spend another season with frozen tootsies.
Each of these fill a certain hole in my closet. I've taken this particular matter very seriously and ordered one of each of these boots so I can try them on with my wardrobe and decide what will make the perfect addition this season. Ordering from Zappos makes this really easy because they have free two-way shipping. Every girls dream!

Opinions, anyone?

A Memory:

I wrote this blog a few summers ago- and reading it today I remember what I felt as I saw this girls' life pass away in my review mirror.

Discovering Houston (lost just doesn't seem right), I saw a girl while I driving. I spotted her from far away.

First I saw her face. She looked away, trying desperately to avoid making eye contact with the boy that stood in front of her waving his arms and screaming fiercely.

She crouched low and curled as she pushed her feet fervently against the ground and her body into the chain link fence that cradled her.

She wanted to break through.

Tight lips. She tried to be brave and fight back the tears losing every now and then, he wasn't softened by her sadness.

I passed.

In my mirror he thumped her chest, she tried not to notice... I couldn't see her anymore, and I was crying.

Hoping it wasn't, but somehow knowing...this was routine.
