You know I really have to start off and say I am really not a whiner or complain much about anything. I read so many of your blogs out there and my heart goes out to so many of you. I think for me, when I get slammed for a whole week of hard things, hearing some sad news (but it can be considered good too) I begin to just melt! LOL But seriously this whole week has just been so darn rough! I think I am ready to just hit the hay for a few days and recoup kwim? I am still getting over the flu and that is no fun and really challenging while taking care of 3 kiddies! I am more than grateful I had several offers from my close girlfriends here to come and take my kids for me. So sweet and I soo appreciate them! SO I had to at least scrap a few new things that make me chuckle and make my sad days more happy! I have to tell you this story about my recent broken pink cell phone! That was just the ice breaker! LOL But still this post is about the happy stuff!
Here's a little ditty about Shabby Miss Jenn's oh so shabby pink cell phone! See we have this friend who works in an oh soooo eclectic coffee shop right down the street from us. Turns out they make the most bestest espresso's in all of Shabbyland! And their fabulous lattes, iced cappuccino's and americano's really put Starbucks to shame! I am soooo serious about that one!
Soooo, the Shabby Daddy walks in to greet a few of his buddies! Lo and behold one of them works there occasionally! So he totally knows the secrets to the trade of fabulous coffee! He tells Shabby Daddy he's making him his very classic "Davito". Since the dudes' name is David, how more perfect can that name get! Basically it's a secret but it's a sweet creamy iced cappucino!
Soooo the Shabby Daddy returns to the Shabby Cottage with this huge iced drink in his hands! I know he's already scored major points with SMj! It's incredible! Every sip is like I am in coffee heaven! Sooooooo majorly good! Then I proceed to go out on my daily tag saling ventures! Mind you the lid that the "Davito" dude put on my cup was a rounded one because all that whipped cream had to be protected! So my straw was a tad short! Sooo, I am driving around and decide to take the lid off. I still have my straw but I figure it's nooo big deal!
Then I am turning into one shabby tag sale! Just dying at all the luscious goodies I see before me! Sooo I decide to grab my pink shabby cell phone to see if one of my sweet girlees wanted to meet up with me and load up on all these treasures! As I am grabbing my pink phone from my cute straw bag, guess what? My phone decides on it's own that it really wants a taste of that Davito drink! Yup let me tell ya I was shocked myself! This phone took a nice sweet dive right into my drink! Totally submerged like a submarine! I completely lost my breath for a few seconds! HOLY MOLY! My brand new phone...pretty much ruined!
I am thinking though to myself, "well I could get that hot new iphone that's coming out on the 29th". LOL But I am sooo sad now. I loooved my pink phone and we had been through so many conversations together! Sooo frustrated that it wouldn't even turn on, I drove back home! Shabby Daddy just about died! Kinda giggled too! But really felt my pain and despair! He told me to go put it out in the sun! Meanwhile I am im'ing my girlfriend who lives down the street! Im'ing cuz my darn cell phone won't work! She tells me to blow it dry!
Soooo, I began to start drying my pretty pink cell phone just like I was in a beauty salon! Really pimping her up! Noooo luck! It still won't work. It does turn on and the Bethinator could get ahold of me but I could not dial out! Ughhhhhhh!!!!
Soooo, that night was movies in the park! And while we all sat and enjoyed a great movie with some great friends..I still wondered if that pink phone of mine would ever work again! Sooo I went to bed, hoping......hoping badly...that it would work.
The next morning I awoke to some beautiful noises! Shabby Daddy was fiddling with my shabby pink cell phone and lo and behold, she worked! Perfectly and magically!!!! I could dial out and get ahold of anyone out there in Shabbyland! Yippppeeeeeeee!!!! Seriously I was soooo excited!!!!!!! So even with that huge dive into the Davito swamp, she still managed to come out clean for me!
The fun shopping trip was finding our daughter's "CHAYCE-KINI"! LOL I remember when I was little trying on suits with my mom, trying to find the right swimsuit for the summer! Well Chayce and I had the most hilarious time finding her one! And isn't this one just too cute? LOL I just love it and it's soo her!
And my most favorite recent purchase....Bare Minerals Foundation makeup! OMG I ordered mine from Sephora and I am in love! I hate liquid foundations and this stuff is heaven!!!!!! Totally worth the $$!
Well there are just a few things that make this lil girl happy! I have so much to be thankful for! I again am totally wiped out from this week! I hope you all have one RELAXING weekend and I hope I can too! :) LOL
