Adventures in Curtsyland!

Friday, December 19, 2008

Our day began by watching a van drive up Spring Street hill from Western Ave to 1st Avenue. The driver made it up the hill and had stopped in the middle of the crosswalk to wait for the light to change to green. I guess he sensed that it wasn't polite to block the crosswalk and decided to back up a little bit. Bad, bad idea. The hill was a sheet of ice and last we saw of the poor chap, he had done a 180 degree turn and rammed into a light pole. And he was just trying to be a good, considerate driver...OOPS! Hopefully the karma gods gave him some extra points for trying! After that I went out and put snow tires on my little Subaru, so now we have all wheel drive AND bad ass studless snow tires!

New goodies came yesterday from Butter London like the Christmas Cuticle Nail Kit. It comes with a bottle of Melt Away Cuticle Eliminator and Handbag Holiday Cuticle Oil along with a spiffy little brush to clear away the debris on your nails. We also received 5 new luscious colors including gold shimmery West End Wonderland. All great for stocking stuffers or treating yourself!

It was a busy day at CB both with loads of holiday shoppers and the UPS guys and gals trying to catch up on their deliveries. Our long anticipated order of Jessica Kagan Cushman Bracelets finally arrived. I'm love, love, loving the sassy sayings with my favorite being "La, la, la, la...I can't hear you!" New from her this season are some spectacularly cool Shopping Totes. Who wouldn't love to find the Fierce warrior goddess of shopping tote under the tree?

Danielle was supposed to be heading to the airport this evening to pick up the Captain after he's been at Fort Bragg in North Carolina attending classes for the past month. Latest word is that he's stuck in Atlanta, number 7 on the standby list for the last flight of the night, which only has 6 empty seats...bummer! I'm sensing a big load of frustration on both ends, so I think I'll take her out to dinner tonight to distract her from her disappointment - it's hard waiting for your boy to come home! We know he'll get home eventually...right?
