I did it!

I finished the 7th Harry Potter book tonight, and it was SOOOOOO good! I couldn’t put it down, and now I am a little sad that it’s over. The series is definitely a must read for those of you who have not read it!

Broken Laptop

Well, I have gone and broken my laptop, so I will not be doing much blog checking or emailing for a while. I will have some access at work, but if you don’t hear from me for a few days, that’s why. Sad day. 😦

While I would like to use this as an excuse to get a new laptop (perhaps a pink laptop!), this one is only 6 or 8 months old. Plus, it is broken because I slammed it shut in a little fit of anger. So no new laptop for me. It will probably have to go to the shop or to HP. That’ll teach me a lesson! Keep your fingers crossed that the hard drive is okay.

Harry Potter


So I am a little behind the times and am just now working my way through the Harry Potter series. I LOVE them–they are so creative and imaginative. I have actually been listening to them on CD to and from work, which makes the drive much more bearable (okay, it really isn’t that bad to begin with, but it’s more fun with Harry).

BUT. Tonight I am not happy with JK Rowling. Not happy at all. I am in book 6 and Dumbledore just died. I CANNOT believe it. I am in shock, I am horrified. JK, how can you do this to us, your loyal readers and HP fans?! The injustice. And killed by Snape?! Auuuuuuggggh!

My brother tells me book 7 is worse, that he has friends who sobbed through the entire book. I don’t think I can handle it. I like happy stories. I know, it has a happy ending. But surely there was a better way. Blech.

On another note, tonight I went to a drug dinner and wore my new dress (see below). The waiter was making his rounds with more wine and said to me “If I were a cross dresser, I would wear that dress. I love it!” Is that a compliment or should I be worried?

I almost forgot!

I intended to include this with my last post but it slipped my mind. But I wanted to post this in honor of my neighbor!

This is the dress that I wore to the tea. I didn’t really intend to match my table, but I wanted a chance to FINALLY wear this fun dress that I recently purchased.
My neighbor and I went swimsuit shopping several months ago (me for the cruise, her for a fun tropical honeymoon), but we were a little distracted. I found this dress and LOVED it but didn’t plan on buying it until my neighbor pursuaded me I NEEDED it! So I bought it. But then I had buyer’s remorse and took it back. A few weeks later, I decided (with again the help of my neighbor) that I did in fact need it, and I went back and bought it again! I am glad I did, because it really is a nice dress, and I love summer dresses! The picture doesn’t do it justice (all it does is shows how short I am!) but the black portions are all embroidered.
Thanks for your shopping help, neighbor! We may have to shop together more often!!!

Ladies Tea

This past Saturday we had our annual Ladies Tea at church. I was a table hostess (even though I swore last year I wasn’t going to do anything this year but attend–but I am a sucker who can’t say no) and had a wonderful time. I went with a black, white and red theme and was very excited to find everything I needed for very cheap! Like I said before, I LOVE a good deal!

This picture does not do the roses justice–I purchased them at Sam’s, and they are beautiful! I received so many compliments on them Saturday. I also used my china, which was fun because I rarely use it. I did decide, though, that I need to start using it more often. That’s what it’s for, after all!

Black tablecloth: $9.99 on clearance at Bed, Bath, Beyond

White cloth napkins: $4.00 for all 8! at Tuesday morning

Vase: $4.99 at Ross

I did enjoy decorating and hostessing my table–but I still want to just go and enjoy myself one year!
