More Random Stuff

1. Billy went to Oklahoma last week to see his dad. The weather for last Thursday and Friday was in the mid 60's, so he took the motorcycle. On his way back home, a car hit him. Thankfully, it wasn't as bad as it could have been and he was even able to ride the rest of the way home. He's got some scrapes and he's still pretty sore. Every time he'd make a noise, he'd say that he doesn't mean to be a baby about it. I'd have to tell him that it's ok, he GOT HIT BY A CAR! The bike isn't too bad, the crash bars did their job, but the saddlebags are awfully roughed up. Now he's got the fun job of getting estimates and dealing with insurance. Ugh. I'll have to show him this picture again, since it was the left side that went down.

2. Remember the purse I've really, really been wanting?

The Coach Bleecker Patent Leather Tote in Black. No way was I ever going to pay $398 for it, so I checked Dillard's a few weeks ago to see if it was on clearance. No black, but there was a blue one for $250. I really wasn't going to go above $200, so I figured my perfect black tote was completely out of my reach. I even tried on a Dooney & Bourke Black Patent Cindy Tote, $210, not bad if I could get it on sale. At least I could count on it not disappearing like Coach stuff does. But, I just couldn't stop thinking about the Bleecker Tote. So, I went ahead and texted my brother in Orlando and just told him to be on the look out for one since he works at Dillard's. Well, he went above and beyond and tracked one down for me at another store near him! And guess what the price is?! He can get it for about $90!!! I seriously can't tell you how excited I am about this! I know in the picture it just looks like a regular purse, but when I saw it in person, it just made me happy. And because I'm a bit of a pessimist, I keep thinking that the other store is confused and it's not the one I want. Ok, I'm going to stop, I've jinxed it enough already. Here's a picture of me and my awesome brother. I'm not good with photoshop otherwise I would've done something about the weird color. Everything looks kind of yellowish green.

3. Ali did this once before, so I'm going to do it. Here's the first 5 songs that came up on my iPod in shuffle mode.

Express Yourself - Madonna
Morning Calls - Dashboard Confessional
Rapid Hope Loss - Dashboard Confessional
Papa Don't Preach - Madonna
Screaming Infidelities - Dashboard Confessional

Ok, that was embarrassing. I promise I have more than just DC and Madonna on there. Well, not much more, any suggestions?

I was gonna play along and tell what my top 5 songs are on shuffle but my iPod needs charged!

So would that make you the purse hunter or the purse whisperer?

I am glad your husband is okay! My husband rides a motorcycle too and it always scares me that someone isn't going to see him.

I think that I would be to embarrased to list what 5 songs come up on my ipod. :)
