My 1000th Post!

Wow. I can't believe today is my 1000th post!! Isn't that nuts??

I thought I'd have some super witty and creative post for you guys, but I'm plum out of ideas today. So instead I'll just give you a random life updates. How's that?

- Usually, I don't really get into holidays until it's closer to the actual celebrated holiday, but I've been ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas for at least a month. We always celebrate those holidays at my aunt's house and I've been asking her for weeks what I should bring. She must think I'm nuts by now.

- All of you on the east coast I hope you're doing ok with these crazy storms!! I've been reading your blog, IG, and FB posts and hope the best for you guys! CA weather is just nuts being cold one day and blazing the next. Today is supposed to be 87! On freaking Oct 30!

- My favorite person in the world to text is my Grandpa. He's so endearing and hilarious. I've thought about doing a weekly post about our texts because he cracks me up. Here's an example:

"Kristen I love these Egyptian cottons sheets we bought at WalMart. They wash and go back on the bed and fit perfect. They are neat. I love you."

Don't you just love the guy? There's a story behind these new sheets, but I don't think it's as funny written as it is told. Long story short, he had full size sheets for his queen size bed (+ pillow top and foam padding) that he insisted used to fit the bed, but shrunk in the wash.

- Am I really missing out on all this pumpkin flavored craze? I don't drink coffee so I haven't had the chance to try the PSL from Starbucks, but drinking pumpkin flavored liquid just doesn't sound appeasing to me.

- The hubs and I are STILL looking for a home. It's so frustrating. We've been looking for a house since February and I'm at that point where a) I'm not going to settle on anything less than blah, blah, blah and b) I'll move in anywhere we can call our own at this point. Maybe we should just move out of state?

- I finally played Bunco for the first time and had so much fun! I even won for most baby buncos. It probably also helped that I was one of two people not drinking so I could actually keep track of my plays, but whatevs, I'll take it! I can't wait to play again, it was such a great time.

- My Iphone and it's fun, personalized cover that took me forever to pick out should be here today or tomorrow. I can't wait!

- Today is the LAST day to enter my giveaway so don't forget my BDB Brow Buddy giveaway!

What's new with you ladies? Something you want to share??

I love your grandpa text! My grandma sounds similar, but she's definitely not a texter.

Congrats on your blog! 1000 posts is a big accomplishment!

You have to try the PSL at Starbucks, but make sure you get it half sweetened cause it'll be all syrup!

I love that your grandpa texts! My grandparents are not as techno advanced.

Carolyn said...

Congratulations doll!! Keep the fabulousness coming :)

And I heart your grandfather!

Miranda said...

Yay!! 1000... That's awesome! I love your grandpa! That's so awesome he texts you :) good luck on finding a home... It can be frustrating but it will happen when it's meant to be! Just don't rush it. I kind of wish we didn't rush so much but hey... That's how we learned I guess!

Hikari said...

I laughed out loud about your grandpa's sheets. I love grandparents soooo much! hahaha. Please do share some of his texts!

Also, I don't drink coffee either, but I always go to Starbucks and get their flavored milk steamers. You should try a small with their pumpkin spice and see if you like it or not. I love it.

Congrats on 1000 posts!

I think Grandpa is hilarious!! And if you're going to move out of the state... Come up here so you can be by family still!!! :]

Pamela said...

Lol, your gramp's texts sound like my dad's. Ha! Old people are so cute.

I'm always happy and exhausted by the holidays. Family is great ... but so many family functions ... (slowly walks away)

PSL ... eh. It's like one of those blogger things that just took of for no good reason.

thanks everyone!! i appreciate all love.

Olga, I bought it from Etsy site, Tin Tree Gifts. I got it today and love it, but it's really thin. I don't think it will provide much "protection", but i really like it.

I definitely think you should move out of state. How about across the country, to Pennsylvania. We may get hurricanes once every 100 years, but also get 4 seasons!!

Awwww that text from your grandpa is probably the best thing I've read all day! I don't blame you for loving his texts! Too sweet :) And I've never tried the PSL either, I just really don't think I'd enjoy the whole pumpkin flavored drink thing...
