I love a deal

Lately I've been craving new clothes, and I want them to have a type of look to them whether casual, business or dressy. That look is modern, classic and a bit trendy. All of those things are the quentisential Banana Republic and I'm hooked. I've always liked their clothes but never liked spending so much per piece. Lately however I have been able to pick up a couple of super deals during their annual sale. In the last couple of weeks I've been able to pick up four new pieces for under Full retail price of those pieces...over 200.00 What a deal!

They're coming to Detroit

The Seahawks have made it and they are coming to Detroit. Now I have to say that anyone coming to the superbowl excited to 'check out' Detroit is going to be sorely disappointed. However, I am excited at having some Seattlites in Ann Arbor (since who in their right mind would actully stay at a hotel in Detroit).

Go Seahawks!

My Favorite Christmas Gifts

This post is entirely too long delayed, but here are a couple of my favorite Christmas gifts this year. By no means is it complete, because I loved everything I received.

Making pizza is fun again thanks to this wonderful present from Mike. It is a dual wheel pizza cutter from Brookstone. There is no more going over the pizza twice to cut all the way through, plus it look super cool and is fun to use.

Tivo. By far the best invention on the planet. No longer will I watch a program real-time. Fast forwarding over commercials and parts I find boring is perfect for my ADD-style T.V. watching. Plus it makes the coolest do do...dong!

Beyond The Blonde. It's a great novel about the secret life of beauty salons in New York City. It was so good that I read it in a few hours on the plane home from Seattle. This isn't the only great book I received. I also got Citizen Girl, The Time Travelers Wife, plus a great gift certificate to Barnes and Noble to replenish my stock -- Thanks Mom!

A long night

I worked from 8am yesterday until 2am. It was a very long day and I am very tired. Of course, my boss told me I could take today off, which I am doing in part, but why work a long day like that with no overtime? I have to go in for awhile to make sure a couple of things are taken care of as well. Hey, at least I didn't have to be back at 8am and got to sleep in until 11!
