Update On Everything

Wow! It's really been a long time since I've had the time to post about anything, and I apologize deeply.

First off, I would like to thank all of you that have been bearing with me while I get things straightened out in my life.

The Updating Part:

**Joshua and I have made a mutual agreement to go our seperate ways - stay friends, but not be together. Although we both cared for each other very much; life was pulling us in our seperate ways and things were getting to be a bit too much. We began to argue - a lot. Which is something that neither of us wanted for ourselves, nor for each other. We are still friends and talk periodically. And although we were both sad to part, we've found that we're just as happy with being friends - and a lot less stressed.

**Although I was hired in as a part timer, I have been working between 8 - 10 hours a day at my new job, Shoe Show. The main manager is on vacation until June 1st, so I'm able to pick up on a ton of hours. I am currently in training for a promotion to Key Holder!! I'm working like crazy, but loving how busy it's keeping me.

**I'm getting all of my paperwork ready for my Fall semester at Chattanooga State and am very excited to be starting my 3rd semester!!

Once my manager gets off of vacation, things will calm down more. My hours will drop a lot (which is good and bad) and I'll be able to be back on the computer a bit more. I have a review (and possible giveaway) coming in the next week or two - so be on the look out.

Once again, I want to thank you all for sticking through these crazy times with me. Life's been a bit of a mess for the last couple of weeks and I'm only just now able to start catching up with it. But I hope to be back with you all soon. :)

Luggage Sets Review

Do you enjoy traveling? What about traveling with style? That's where Luggage Sets comes in at.

They offer over 300 luggage sets to choose from!! If I do say so myself, that sounds like there's plenty of choices for anyone. One of my personal favorites is the Travelers Club Marseille 3-Piece Expandable Luggage Set.

Believe me, I know what you're all thinking .. "Luggage is so expensive..." but on their site, you can even compare prices, which allows you to find the perfect price (and set of luggage) just for you.
Luggage Sets also provides discount codes on their home page. Their current discounts are below:

Shop the Irv's Luggage Gift Center and Save 15% on Great Gifts for Grads, plus get Free Shipping on $99+.

Coupon Code:GRAD15
Valid through 6/30/10

Not too many companies post discount codes on their home page, so I think that deserves two thumbs up.

Another nifty quality that you can find on their home page is the search box. You can search by brand or name of set, color/pattern, price range, number of pieces, and outer shell type!! That's a lot of options to go through, which makes it easier for you to find just what you're looking for.

So head on over and check out their (OVER) 300 sets of luggage, I'm sure you'll find something you love.

Sorry for the lack of personal posts..

I apologize for personal posts that I've had (or, lack thereof) recently. Everything is just so crazy right now.
I've finished all of my finals - WOOO!! I'm done with my second semester of college!!!!! YAY!

Now, my sister, Rebecca (which I hadn't seen in almost 10 years - long story) is up, visiting - so I'm spending as much time with her as possible!! <3

And on top of that - I'm starting a job tomorrow! I'll be working at Shoe Show! :)

But, hopefully, I'll get back to more posts soon.

I hope that you're all doing wonderfully and can't wait to catch up!

Saturday 9: #18

Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!

Saturday 9: Changes

1. Tell us about one thing that you'd change about yourself if you could.
I wish that I could do things at the spur of the moment sometimes - I tend to think things through too much and so I don't have as much fun as I'd like.

2. Mattel decides to make a Barbie-like (or Ken-like) doll of you -- what would be the most important accessory or accessories they would absolutely have to package you with in order to portray your lifestyle?
Treble clefs, for music - I have a treble clef necklace, it's on my class ring that I wear, my earrings, and it's tattooed on me.

3. Hey, do you like surprises? If yes, what kinds?
Absolutely - I like all surprises!!

4. What was the last snail mail that you received that was significant?
I received a "Thank you" card from Julie ;; Julie, you're a doll!!

5. If you could pick out a brand new nickname for yourself, what would you choose and why?
Hmm. I like my nicknames.

6. John Edward's mistress was on Oprah this past Thursday. She stated that no third person can break up a marriage, so it had to be broken before the two started doing the nasty. Do you buy that?
I've always believed that in order for someone to come in between a relationship, there had to be an unlocked door that they were allowed in. (Basically, someone had to let the third person in).

7. Do you think it is okay to keep secrets from your s/o?
Nope. I mean, you are entitled to your own thoughts, but nothing serious.

8. Have you ever played Truth or Dare? If yes, what's the weirdest dare that you did?
I have played, but I really cannot remember.

9. What, in hindsight, the stupidest thing that you have ever done?
Oh wow, I don't even really know where to start. I've certainly had my moments.

And the winner is...

It's time to announce the two winners of the giveaway for the Mother's Day Sweets & Treats Gift Basket.

Here are your random numbers:
