If You Can't Be With the One You Love, Honey
We have a winner! Random.org chose number 9 and so I picked the 9th commenter that wanted to win the book, Love the One You're With. I did include my lovely, wonderful, beautiful friend, ISA, even though she said shipping to France was too expensive. No it's not! Sorry you didn't win, Isa. I'll send you and the Cupcake another present. The 9th commenter was Cecily Coleman. I've already sent and email out to her letting her know that she is a winner.
Cecily, I'm totally nosey and want to know everything about you! I've never seen you comment before so I want to know who you are and where you live (need to know that to send you the book) and what you do. Most importantly, I need to know how you found the blog. I love finding that out! Email me all your info soon, Cecily.
Thanks for playing, everyone. I'm going to be doing that again soon. Also, I'm going to be designing a bookmark with a logo for the book club. I know it's silly sounding but I love it! I need a real name though and I keep going 'round and 'round. I like Diary and Friends Book Club but here's the problem- nothing about shoes. That seems kinda wrong, right? Or no? And Shoeaddict's Book Club is not very inclusive. What about Shoeaddict and Friends Book Club? I was thinking of having the name around some type of picture, a shoe and book or something.
I need ya'll to tell me what you think the name should be. You can pick one I've given or make up your own. I don't know how to put up a voters thing like I've seen on other people's blogs (maybe Kelli can tell me how cause she is smart about things like that)(so are YOU).
I have to tell ya'll another little thing, too. God knows your heart. He really does. I've been such a grouchy pants and have been in such a mood lately. Today, I needed to go to the grocery store and I decided to go to a new one. It's not really new, but new to me. I've been going to Wal*Ma.rt and I'm sick of it. That's another post in itself though. So, I went today and loved it. It's locally owned and it's fabulous.
What does that have to do with God knowing my heart? Well, everyone there was so friendly! It warmed my heart (cheesy sounding, I know) and put me in such a good mood. I love, love, love to shop and this place made it so much better. It just helped me so much to have every single person that worked there smile at me and say something friendly when I made eye contact. There was someone around everywhere I turned, no searching necessary.
I am not a beer drinker but over the 4th weekend I drank this and loved it. No, LOVED. It's seasonal but I didn't know when they stopped selling it. I was in their (HUGE, clean) beer and wine section and asked a guy to help me. He spent forever with me chatting like we were old friends. He was so helpful (recommended this, have you had this, Abby?) and sweet and kinda cute which is besides the point, of course. AND my total was so much lower than usual.
It was good times and now we are about to eat some slow cooked chuck roast, broccoli, potatoes and carrots. And have a beer. Have a good one.
