The Time

This is the best time of year.

I won't say favorite (that's the summertime) but when Halloween starts to show its scary face, I start to feel very excited for the rest of the year. Thanksgiving, Christimas, New Year's. All of the celebrating makes the winter months liveable, and actually somewhat loveable. Halloween is the kick off for all of the end-of-year F.U.N. But keep in mind, I'm back in school. Luckily class ends the second week of December and my horrible (so horrible!) accounting class ends next week ... which means: I should be able to be proactive and organized for this holiday season.
  1. Halloween will only be fun: no stressing over finding costume at the last minute or lack of cool costume or whatever -- I'll just go without one and look fabulous.
  2. Plan out my Thanksgiving dishes early.
  3. Arrive at mom's on Thanksgiving day early.
  4. Send out Christmas cards.
  5. Buy all the Christmas gifts before the 24th.
  6. Wrap everything early <--- this is contingent on #4 being successful.
  7. Buy a New Year's dress early; as soon as I see something I like.
Do you see how not procrastinating is basically my entire goal?
I've just been anti-procrastination specific.

Stuff I Need. Seriously.

I love to shop but I hate shopping when I really need something -- because it feels like a chore and inevitably you don't find what you want. Case in point: black t-shirts. Costco has some great ModBod ones but they are, of course, always sold out in the size and color I would like. Others I find are too thin, not black enough, or stupid. And I need black t-shirts. Lots of them. So the list of things that I really really need to replace is growing. And I'm cutting my nose to spite my face because as the list grows, I start to hate looking for the items, and then I need the items even more because more time has elapsed and that means, I hate shopping for them even more. It's a vicious cycle.
  1. panties
  2. very sexy push-up bras
  3. work pants
  4. white t-shirts
  5. black t-shirts
  6. a purse
  7. jeans
  8. boots
  9. tights and tall socks
  10. sweaters/jackets
And for fun ...
  1. a few more scarves
  2. a couple more cardigans
Guarantee: I will buy more scarves and cardigans.

Coming Soon

THIS is coming in two weeks and I.can't.wait.

Not only am I a huge fan of mail (and I work for the biggest mail company in the country) but I am also a huge fan of surprise/impromptu/spontaneous thoughtfulness. Using the Cards App you can send personalized cards to anyone in the country for $2.99 -- an absolute steal. The benefits?
  • No longer forgetting to buy a card.
  • Not having to read tons of stupid store cards only to end up choosing a blank one.
  • No more excessive and loud complaining about how terrible store bought cards are.
  • Stress free personalized notes done straight from your phone.
  • YOUR pictures, your beautiful face, your fabulous friends, on the card of your choice.
  • No more forgetting to buy stamps.
  • Or an envelope.
  • Or forgetting to mail it and having it get wrinkled & crushed from carrying it in your purse for a week.
  • You can get the recipient's address straight from your contact list.
  • You receive a message when it's out for delivery.
So to recap: YOU get to send a personalized card, including envelope and postage, without any bother for the low low price of $2.99 ... two dollars and ninety-nine cents.

Impromptu fun!
Love it.
