A is for Anthropologie

A is for Anthropologie. I love getting their catalogue in the mail and seeing what pretty new things they have. I love going to the store and checking out the sale section because their clothes aren't cheap. I love obsessing over some new piece of clothing they have and going to the store and finding that 1) it's not that great in person or 2) It looks horrid on me. I know those 2 reasons sound depressing and why would something like that be a good thing, well because it saves my pocketbook some dinero.
The one thing I don't like a ton is that their customer service is a little lacking. Yes they will grab the clothes from my hands and start me a room but beyond that I am underwhelmed with the customer service experience I have had there. There always seems to be a long line at check out with only one person ringing people up and they make no attempts to find anyone else to come and help out.
Customer service aside. I like their clothing. Here are a few favorites of mine at the moment.

Argyle Diapers

My friend DV has two precious twin boys and recently updated her pictures on facebook. I was blown away when I saw one of them wearing, wait for it, argyle diapers. Evidently Huggies did some sort of limited time patterned diapers. I mean, this is genius! Screw Sesame Street, I want argyle diapers for when I have babies a million years from now. You bet your bottom dollar I will have this one day or I'll make my own.

Oh Jimmy

Jimmy Choo can do wrong. This is just a very expensive version of a wedge flip flop which I have mentioned before my dislike of them. Ugh.

Sunday Funday

If you have not read Suri's Burn Book, please do so ASAP! It is written by "Suri" and without fail it makes me laugh! Genius idea by whoever is behind this blog!

Something I will force my children to do one day

One day I will have a child or children. One thing I am going to make them do and I am sure they will hate me for it, is work in retail or at a restaurant. I think it makes you a better person. Before my time in retail started years ago at the Banana I would leave a dressing room a wreck with no concern for others. Those days are gone my friends. I try to leave it neat and tidy whenever I leave some place because I know what it's like to open that dressing room door and every single piece of clothing they tried on is on the floor. I have never worked in a restaurant but the same comes from here. We are taught the importance of customer service and pretty much being nice to others. I brunched one Saturday with WJ, LEG, and BH at South Congress Cafe. It was amazing and Marc, our waiter was equally nice. He wasn't too pushy and he was knowledgeable he brought BH a small bowl of olives and didn't judge. You bet his tip was higher than 20%.
Thus, one day my children's will be working in one of these fields for a summer job so they can remember how important it is to treat people nicely, because folks let me tell you, lots of you forget that these people working these jobs are humans too.

An alphabetical thought

I was catching up on my friend CC's blog, which by the way is wonderful. You really should check it. Not to mention her blog looks a million times better than mine. Anyhoo. While reading it she was showing some blog love to other blogs she liked. Anchors and Argyle wasn't mentioned but I am sure we will get at shout out next time. One blog she did link me to was Tory Burch's -- She seems to be doing some sort of favorite things list alphabetically and it got me thinking that I might want to do that do with my favorite things. I need to come up with something for every letter but consider it done!


I am sure the title of this post just grabbed your attention and made you want to read more.
Belts. I used to not be a big fan of belts. Lately, I feel like they are becoming my 2011 version
of my headband love. For those that don't know me well I had a very intense love with
headbands. It was at it's prime in 2007-2009ish. I still love a headband but they are not my
go to anymore like they used to be. I seriously used to wear a headband pretty much everyday.
I feel like as of late, the belt has been my new headband. I find myself wanting more belts in
fun patterns and colors. They bring an old outfit new life and it seems like I have been getting
lots of compliments on them as well. I wore this neon yellow
one to a dinner the other week and got tons of compliments.
I am currently on the hunt for a gold belt. Not skinny but not huge. I haven't found it yet but I am hunting away. Feel free to share any that you have found. Braided gold is a possibility as well.

Oh so dapper!

Volunteering with a purpose?

A friend of mine picked her JL placement at a hospital on the prospect of meeting a Dr. to marry. I have told her this sounds horrible to me because I hate blood and needles but she seems pretty excited and gungho. She has also mentioned it is a county hospital and that there will probably be some gunshot wounds etc. I asked her what she would be doing at the hospital and she said assisting the Dr.'s. I told her I thought the nurses were for assisting. Folks, I just can't see a Dr. looking to my friend for his scalpel. Let's see if she survives the blood and the ER. And hey is she meets someone I will be the first to say I was wrong.

Chris Harrison

The other day my friend AH linked me to an intro to all the contestants on Bachelor Pad.Mind you, I don't quite get what the premise of show is but Idon't care. The find love or they find money? I still tuned in. The icing on this cake was thefinal image. It was Mr. Chris Harrison aka the smartest man alive.
Entertainment Weekly is right, it would be all over for the other contestants if he was participating and not hosting. They should be thanking their lucky stars that he isn't. Can't wait to see how this new trainwreck will play out.

And look, he's a family man. And those kiddos are precious.

Picture play by play

My BFF gets lots of picture messages from me. Today she got the manicure that I gave myself.
That's white with gold sparkly glitter on top in case you were wondering.

She got this beauty of a fedora picture from my weekend at the lake.
You are welcome!

The other week I took all the lightness out of my hair and went back to my roots or close to my roots colorwise. She got the picture in the process
and then got another one the next day all done.
She humors me and responses positively and comments on what I send her. It's like we are closer than Texas and North Carolina. Now all of my readers know what it's like to be in the BFF zone with me. Let me know if you want in on this picture sending magic.

7:30 in the AM

This morning I swung by the grocery store on the way towork. As I was walking in a man was walking back to his car carrying a 6 pack ofBudweiser. I feel like if you are buying a 6 pack at 7:30 in the morning you might as well go ahead and purchase the 24pack because the 6 pack isn't going to last you very long. Also, it begged the question of, HEB is allowed to sell beer at7:30 in the morning? Who knew.
