The BEST place to buy shoes. . .

I just wanted to share with everyone the absolute best place to buy shoes. Go to I ordered a pair of really cute shoes from there on Sunday night and got them this morning. I actually could have ordered the shoes up until last night and still have been able to get them today. Overnight shipping is free and they give you $5 off your order. If I had gone to Macy's to get the shoes I got, I would have paid $81 with tax. But, I only paid $45.86 for the shoes on I am not being paid to advertise for them or anything, I'm just super excited about finding this place! And, if the shoes don't fit, they pay for return shipping! Look at my cute new shoes:

I'm very excited to wear them for traveling and on the weekends. I really only wear high heels during the week, so it'll be nice to have a cute pair of flats to wear on the weekends instead of flip flops to give my feet a rest. I know they aren't technically flat, but considering I wear 3 1/2 to 4 inch heels all day during the week, a small, 1 inch wedge is definitely a rest for my feet! YAY! So excited!!

So, so tired. . .

Happy New Year/Shana Tovah to all my fellow Jews!

Sorry for the long absence, things have been quite dramatic with work and family and The Swimmer has been extremely stressed out with work, so needless to say, I've been quite busy. Got back from my work trip and family visit on Sunday night and still haven't had much time to really relax. At least the weather has been absolutely stunning here, maybe fall is coming early this year? So much I want to discuss too - the work drama, maybe the family drama, The Swimmer, America's Next Top Model, Prison Break and my new show addiction - Gossip Girl.

Anyways, unless I update sooner, I wish the Jews an easy fast (if you are fasting) and the others a relaxing and fun weekend!!

The Swimmer Is Fantastic!!

I have finally finished feeling totally and completely upset that the long weekend is over and The Swimmer has returned to LA. Perhaps this is because we bought a ticket for me to go visit him the first weekend in October and I know the time between now and then is going to fly by. I have an out of town work meeting next week and then next weekend I will be visiting my Mom in Florida. I was really so sad when it was time for me to take The Swimmer to the airport, I just couldn't stop crying. The Swimmer is great about it though, he's so comforting and sweet and truly tries to make me feel better even though he's sad too.

We had a really nice and relaxing weekend. Went out to dinner on Friday night with one of my neighbors and Crazy Girl which was good and then did a whole lot of nothing on Saturday. Sunday we went to my first ever professional baseball game which was a lot of fun. And Monday just went by way too quickly.

We talked about him coming to my Mom's house for Thanksgiving, which ended up being a funny discussion. He didn't know that when I invited him to come to meet my Mom, brother, sister-in-law and nephews for Thanksgiving that it would be for the whole weekend. He thought it was just for Thanksgiving and for that night. He thought it was just a 4 hour drive from where I live to my Mom's. It's actually an 8 hour drive, so going for one night is really not an option. I told him I would understand if he didn't feel comfortable coming for the whole weekend, that we would just figure out another time for him to meet my Mom and the rest of the family when it would be a more comfortable situation. He was so cute about it though and it was funny seeing him get all nervous about meeting my Mom and brother. He was like, "what would it be like?" "where would we sleep?"

So then Tuesday night when we were talking on the phone, he asked me if I wanted to know what he was thinking about on the plane ride back to LA. He told me that he would come to my Mom's house for the Thanksgiving weekend because he knew it meant a lot to me, even if it made him uncomfortable, he wanted to do it for me. This man is really the best! I just wish he knew it for himself. I told him again that I wouldn't want him to do anything that would make him that uncomfortable and that we'll discuss it again later, but that I was sure that we'd be able to figure out another time when it would be more comfortable for him to meet the family. He really is so sweet though.

Then, he was talking about how hot it was in his bedroom at night when he got back from visiting me. (Remember, he only has a window unit AC in his living room, nothing in his bedroom, not even a fan and there was that heat wave in LA over the weekend) He said that he couldn't wait until he moves out of this apartment and doesn't have a roommate anymore. So I said, "Well, what about me?" He said, "We'll get a place together!" I told him as long as it has central air, I'll be happy!

On another note, I am still a bit peeved about what happened with Crazy Girl and my birthday. I know I should just let it go, but I'm just very annoyed with her. Almost everything she says annoys me now or frustrates me. What sucks is that her and I are roommates at our out of town work meeting next week. Oh well. At least we won't be together for all of the meetings all day. I am supposed to go to the mall with her this Saturday, but I might just have to cancel on her for that. I think I need to have all the alone time I can get before I'm stuck with her for a few days straight. Good thing I'll be seeing The Professional tomorrow, maybe she can help me figure out how to deal with this or get over it. Maybe Crazy Girl is somehow jealous of my focus on The Swimmer? I don't know, crazy hypothesizing on my part. . .

A Quickie

Not feeling up to really posting right now, but just wanted to let you all know that The Swimmer definitely didn't disappoint with my birthday present. He got me a beautiful necklace with a pearl pendant on it. We had a fantastic weekend together which I promise to post more about tomorrow, I'm just too busy being sad right now since I dropped him off at the airport to really post. So, more tomorrow!
