Catching up......

Hi, friends. It's been a while.

Let's first catch up....

1) It has been three weeks since I have had any sort of contact with "The Guy." Since that last conversation, when I was in Memphis. I mailed the letter the day after I got back and he received it two weeks ago........... and, nothing. Not a word. Not a peep. Not a friggin smoke signal.

Let's just say I haven't been taking it very well.

Do you know how long it's been since we've gone THREE WEEKS without any contact? Years.

I promise, he isn't the d-bag that my cousin Heidi has been thinking him for the past two weeks. However, he isn't proving me right, at this time.

We are going to go with the assumption that he doesn't feel the same way and isn't quite sure how to say it.

A simple, "I don't feel the same way." would suffice, but clearly, he's not aware of it. He's not the most mature one in the bunch.

Oh well. I did what I had to do. Only God knows where I, he, and we will go from here.

(Special thanks to Gina, who endured a couple of really long emails from me and was so sweet to share her somewhat similar experience....... again, sorry for the crazy long emails, Gina)

2) The past couple of weeks have been pretty great, in the sense that I've been able to see so many of my friends that I rarely get to see. It's been two weeks of lunches with Meg, Christina, and Susan.... among others. SO great to catch up! My poor intern probably thinks that all I do is eat out with people.

3) My new intern is AMAZING. I adore her. I might actually shed a tear when her internship is up. After the past two not-so-great interns...... I'm just thrilled.

4) I got a new wallet! No.... really, this is bigger than it sounds.

I've had the same wallet since I was in the 7th grade. I bought it at Wal-Mart and have used it, ever since.

As you can see, there's nothing spectacular about it..... brown with embroidered flowers. Kind of cute, but nothing special.

It wasn't as if I had any type of emotional attachment to the wallet. It just never occurred to me to get a new one, since the one I had was just fine, lol.

Then, I got the Vera Bradley "All-In-One Wristlet" (in Paprika) for my step-sister, for her birthday (in September).

My brother's girlfriend admired it so much, I got another one (in Purple Punch) for her Christmas present.

Then, it hit me, lol, "Why don't I get myself one?" It seemed silly, because my trusty Wal-Mart wallet was still in fairly good condition.

But, I wanted one. So, I did what any anal retentive person does.... I looked them up online. I purused all the different patterns they came in and tried to decide which one I wanted.

I settled on Bali Gold.

So, the other day when I went to lunch with Susan, I suggested walking down to the store that sells Vera Bradley, since we both had some time. I went in and started looking at all the colors, just to be sure. I still was sure of my Bali Gold decision.

Until I was exploring the wallet, while waiting for Susan to check out laptop cases.

I unzipped it and thought the inside pattern was ugly.

Oh, crap.

Well, that wouldn't do. For the inside of a purse? Sure.... you can barely see it. But, you see the inside pattern of the wallet every time you open it.

So, it was back to the drawing board. After a little discussion with Susan (who, thankfully, seemed to not think I was totally insane), I decided on Totally Turq.

I am so proud of this little beauty!

Being the sentimental fool that I am, I did get a little "Awwwww" as I was switching over wallets, later that night. I mean, both my HS and College IDs were in there, for Heaven's sake.
I am highly proud of my new wallet, though, lol.

5) I went to the John Mayer concert, last night. We were giving away tickets (on our non-Country station) and had a couple left over, so M and I decided to go.
We got there kind of late and were about 4 rows from the ceiling. He sounded good, but you couldn't make out what he was saying when he talked, lol.
It's a good thing they were free, lol. We both learned that we would never pay for seats in the 3rd level of the Forum.
We did have fun though, and that was the goal!

6) My next post is my 200th post! My giveaway items came in the mail, yesterday, so I'm super excited. Hopefully, you guys will be, too.
If not.... I'll just keep them for myself, lol.

I love Vera Bradley and have been eying that new wallet for a while in that print. Might just have to go buy it today!

Gina said...

You are so welcome for the e-mails. I enjoyed our talks a lot. You email me anytime you want! And I LOVE your new wallet. I get hating the inside pattern...I chose a purse (not a wallet!) because of that.

Justine said...

I was wondering where you had been, friend!! Super cute wallet!! I love Vera Bradley! :)

Welcome back girly!
I'm so sorry about "The Guy" but things will work out the way they're supposed to and you'll know what to do. On another note, are you coming to the girl's weekend? You better be!! :)

OMG! I went to John Mayer in Jacksonville last night! We had excellent seats (7th row, floor...long story how we get them) and he was quite good! It was fun! What a funny coincidence!

And hun, please let me know if you need an ear about that boy. Frankly, if he doesn't call after the letter, he's not worthy of your wonder and beauty and general awesomeness. And I will call him myself and tell him that if you'd like!

Oh, that wallet is really pretty! I visited the Vera Bradley site to see what she's all about. Cute stuff!

I don't know the back story with the guy, but he sounds like he's not really worth all the trouble.

Hope you're having a great weekend!
