The Office Quote of the Day

Shirt:  Thrifted, Sweater:  JCPenney, Jeans:  Thrifted

I got away with everything under the last boss and it wasn't good for me at all. So I want guidance.  I want leadership.  But don't just, like, boss me around, you know?  Like, lead me.  Lead me when I'm in the mood to be led.

The Best Thing About Fall

Shirt:  Thrifted, Jacket:  JCPenney, Jeans:  Walmart, Boots:  Wet Seal

The best thing about Fall has to be the pumpkin pie.  Pumpkin pie is my favorite dessert that is only sold it stores just a couple of weeks out of the year.  I bought my first pie this year on Monday and have had a piece everyday.  I guess I could learn how to bake a pumpkin pie so I can enjoy it all year round, but.....that's just not how i roll.

Vendor:  I can't just go giving away hot dogs.

Michael:  All right.  What do you do with the hot dogs that you don't sell?

Vendor:  Throw them away.

Michael:  Well, okay, instead of throwing them all away later, why don't you just throw one away now into my mouth?

$4.50 Calvin Klein Dress

Some days you just get lucky.  That's what happened to me last Sunday.  On a spur of the moment decision, I decided to go to Goodwill.  As soon as I walked in, I saw a dress hanging in the rack that is designated just for sweaters.  It immediately caught my eye and I was drawn to it.  That dress ended up being a Calvin Klein dress for only $4.50!

After shopping for two days straight on my trip to Branson, I believe I came out victorious.  There were so many temptations that I ALMOST fell for (teal boots at Rue 21, I miss you!).  I did buy a couple of things from Old Navy, the prices were thrift store prices so I couldn't pass them up.  No Judgment Please!

Polka-Dot shorts - $1.18

Navy Blue shorts - $1.18

Brown t-shirt - $1.79

Red t-shirt - $1.79

Sunglasses - $1.50

Shirt:  Thrifted, Scarf:  The Limited, Jeans:  NY&C, Shoes:  Wet Seal

Every year for Halloween I put a bowl of candy at my desk at work.  It is a special bowl.  A bowl that has a hand that reaches out for you when you take a piece of candy.  I have gotten so much joy from that thing over the years I have had it, the reaction of a new employee reaching for a piece of candy and jumping is priceless.  Muahahahaha!

This weekend will be full of temptation.  Temptation to break my rule and buy something new.  I will be surrounded by outlet stores and friends spending money.  I am going to try my best to fight it and hopefully I will survive.  My main goal is to focus my shopping on other people and knockout some Christmas gifts.  Branson, Missouri here we come!

The Office Quote of the Day

Dwight:  You don't want to move.  Moving is one of the most stressful things you can do in life.  You'll probably just take it out on your kid.  Jim will turn to the drink.  The family will fall apart and twenty-five years from now, Cece will become world famous for stripping.

Pam:  That's a sad story.  I have another one.  We move, the other tenants follow, the bank takes the building, takes your farm, takes your car, and beats the crap out of you.  Penniless, you die, and my daughter Cece dances on your grave, fully clothed.

Sweater:  Thrifted - $3.00, Pants:  Target - $4.98, Boots:  JCPenney - $15.00

Life has been hectic lately.  Not only have I not had time to post but I haven't read a blog in a week.  That makes me so sad!  Work needs to slow down so I can get some good Internet time in.
