I am on fire!!

I can't believe I am blogging so much lately. It is so exciting! Okay, so one of my 2 (two) dresses I bought for Steeplechase arrived today. The thing is that I bought one I kind of like, and one I REALLY like. The one I kinda like arrived today, and I think I might be in love with it a little bit. If I could marry it, I just might. So this worries me, because I am NOT good with decisions.

Got a pretty exciting phone call yesterday. Seems a VERY fab department store wants to buy lots of our cards (retail mind you, b/c it's not a resale thing) for an event they are having. Sometimes it's quite nice to make cards with shoes on them :)

Tonight is Wednesday. Tony Bennett will be on American Idol and probably so will Sanjaya. (sigh) Oh, didja know? Melinda Doolittle is from Brentwood, TN. And I do believe that I live in Brentwood, TN (only about 10 minutes from Nashville). I swear, fame surrounds me. I can't help it.

An October Road Quickie

Has anyone caught the new ABC show 'October Road'? It has been coming on after Grey's Anatomy,which I know everyone in America watches, so I'm sure you have heard about it. Well, I have been watching it the last couple of weeks. I have been dissapointed. I don't know what I was expecting, but the acting and dialogue is kind of cheesy I think. And predictable. So, my friend rings me up and asks me if I have seen it and what did I think of it? She hasn't watched it yet, but wanted to know what it was about, etc. I told her the gist and what I thought. I also explained it like this: "Ya know? It's kind of like the premise of Beautiful Girls, (which, BTW is the most FABULOUS movie ever made). Although BG was so, so much better."

Well, ironically, I was reading Korbie's Cheat Sheet on And guess what??? The SAME writer that wrote Beautiful Girls (Scott Rosenberg) is writing October Road. I about fell out of my chair. I mean, what a kawinky-dink! (although not really, because the storylines are somewhat similar minus Natalie Portman and a piano) Okay, so here in lies the issue: Why does October Road suck? Beautiful Girls is famous for its completely wonderful dialogue and writing. That is what made the movie - hands down. So, now that I know this bit of info, I might give October Road another chance. Mostly b/c I love Beautiful Girls, and if this show is anything like it, then it must have promise. It just needs to hurry up and get it quickly.

This just in....

The husband is in Las Vegas right now to celebrate a friend's birthday (which so conveniently coincides with the Final Four games) He called and said the following:

He: "I am at the Mirage and there is a poker tournament going on...guess who's here?"

Me: "Um, Vince Vaughn?"

He: "No, guess again"

Me: "Ben Affleck?"

He: "No"

Me: (getting frustrated) "I don't know - is it a he or she, more famous that Vince Vaughn?"

He: "as famous, and is a he"

Me: "I don't know , frigging tell me already!!"

He: "Leonardo DiCaprio".

Me: "Are you effing kidding me? He is waay more famous that Vince Vaughn!! He was up for an Oscar this year! Holy Macaroni! That is two celeb casino sightings in 2007 for us! Woohoo!!!" (Um, can you please snap a picture? Pretty please? What is he wearing? What does he look like? Who is he with?"

He: "Gotta go, am in the sports book."


Britney and Kevin reach a divorce settlement

Okay, hotties, here we go. They have reached an agreement. Britney drafted an airtight prenuptial agreement before they legally married, so Kevin couldn't really get his hands on that much. A rep for Federline confirms the settlement, saying, "The parties signed a global settlement on all issues of their marriage and the custody of the children."

Britney and Kevin spent the day on Thursday hammering out the final details, which will reportedly see the couple split custody of Jayden James and Sean Preston.

And the FedEx will only get a just over $1 million in cash from Spears.

Semi-weekly update

Here I am! I know how much you guys have missed me. Honestly, I have been meaning to post for a few days, but I also wanted do post a couple of pics, and the friend that shall remain nameless has yet to send me them. However, some FABULOUS things have been going on!

First off, I just got back from an uber fun trip to Savannah, GA for St. Patty's Day with some fabulous girlfriends. We had the most wonderful time. For those who don't know, St. Patty's Day in Savannah, GA is the 2nd largest party in the US. It's huge, and very fun. I wanted to post pictures, but alas, I have none to post. I promise I will as soon as I get them. (hint, hint).

In my great new job I get to do some great things and meet great people. Many people will make fun of me for this, but I got to meet Jared from Subway! He is really a great guy and loves talking to kids about nutrition and childhood obesity. So, he came to one of my schools and spoke to the kids. Fun, eh? However, I will say that if there was a national award for the worst picture ever, it would definitely have to be this one. What gives dude? I think I should write him a letter and demand better than this. Come on man! Open your eyes!

Um, Hey Jared from Subway, can you please open your eyes when you take your picture with Mandy? Great, thanks!

On another front, guess what is coming up that I am so excited about??? Steeplechase! (go read about last year here and here) That's right, Steeplechase in Nashville is now on the horizon. Tickets have been purchased, and now the dress hunting is underway. Now, if you will remember, I get a bit obsessed with my dress. (And you know my story about dress twins - I would sooner die) So, the shopping has begin. I have purchased a couple already and will return whichever one I decide against. (or not, we'll see - a girl can always use extra dresses, no?)

On a sad note, 7th Heaven has officially gotten the boot from the CW. Sad to see the Camdens go. Sure, they have been around for a few years too long, but they also launched the career of the uber fabulous Jessica Biel. Oh! And Watch with Kristin's Save One Show poll is underway, so go vote for your fave, and save it! If you'll remember, One Tree Hill won last year and Veronica Mars the year before, and it was her poll that saved them from being canceled. So it works!

And, finally, I want to give a shout-out to my boyfreind in Indiana, Mr. Peyton Manning. He hosted Saturday Night Live this past weekend and did a FABULOUS job. For those who do not like him, you are insane. He has that natural personality that makes you adore him. I think he did a great job and did the ole U of Tennessee proud. And he even did a semi shout-out to them b/c they showed the UT v. Ohio State game before one skit. They were good skits written perfectly for him. I bet the ratings were fab too. Woohoo Peyton!
