I have a Vera Bradley obsession, I’m not going to lie about it. I love the bright-colored purses and bags. I even have the Vera Bradley luggage, large spinner and small spinner. So of course now my computer is decked out in Vera Bradley too, just like my Kindle and Phone. I mean of course I have a Vera Bradley laptop case but no one really sees that unless I am carrying my laptop somewhere. But now everyone can see it when I use my laptop. My prescription glasses and sun glasses are even Vera Bradley!
Sorry, it has been a crazy week around here. I feel like I am going non-stop all day everyday. This Southern Belle is wearing herself out. I work, work, work, try to have somewhat of a social life, make family time, plus try to fit a book or two in there somewhere too. I need a vacation! And except for a few weekend trips coming up in the next few months I don’t have a vacation planned till after the first of the year. I love working hard but some days I feel like I am working too hard. The one plus to the week is the new season of Duck Dynasty. I love that show and it makes me get my mind off stuff for a little bit. I will always make time for Duck Dynasty into my busy schedule. Hopefully the next week goes better.
Ten Random Things I have been thinking about and thought I would share.
- I think Hallmark Channel or someone else should make movies out of the “Yada Yada Prayer Group”. I would love to see my favorite characters come to live on the screen.
- Part of me thinks it would be cool if they did a “Gone With The Wind” movie re-make.
- I think it would interesting if they did a “The Nanny” reunion movie.
- While I liked that the new “90210” ended with Liam and Annie getting engaged, I would have liked it better if the show ended with them getting married.
- The Pioneer Woman is probably my favorite celebrity cook and probably the one I can relate to the most.
- I think I might write a book, or at least try.
- I would love to see Morgan and Garcia end up together on “Criminal Minds”
- I really don’t think “Scarlett: The Sequel to Gone With The Wind” is what Margaret Mitchell would have had in mind if she was going to write a sequel. The Scarlett in there was not the Scarlett from the original.
- On “Revenge” I don’t really think Declan is dead.
- I can’t wait to hear who is going to play Christian Gray and Gideon Cross in the movies for “Fifty Shades of Gray” and “Bared To You”. I think Colin Egglesfield could pull off one of them.
This past year I did not watch the show Nashville. Mainly because it is on at the same time as Criminal Minds and well I can’t miss my Criminal Minds. Well this summer I have been catching up on Season 1 of Nashville. I am watching episode 12 right now as we speak and I am loving this show so far. I can’t wait to get home from work each day so I can watch more. I will be ready for Season 2 when it starts this fall. I will still be watching Criminal Minds on Wednesday nights but I will catch up on Nashville the next day. September can’t get here fast enough!
I don’t usually listen to the radio, I prefer books on cd when I am driving to and from work. The only time I have the radio on in my car is if I have someone riding with me. But there is a song on country radio right now I can’t get enough of. In fact I can’t get enough of the music video either. I’m sure you are wondering what song I am talking about. It is “Redneck Crazy” by Tyler Farr. There is something about that song and his voice that has just drawn me in. I can’t wait for October 15th for his cd to come out. I can’t wait to listen to it for the first time and to hear his voice on different types of songs.
Yesterday afternoon in New Hampshire a man who has been through hell and back, or at least it seems, surprised thousands. Brian Vickers won the New Hampshire race yesterday. That’s right I said Brian Vickers won the NASCAR Sprint Cup race yesterday! Vickers does not even have a full-time ride. Yesterday he was racing the number 55 car for Michael Waltrip Racing. A few years ago it was unsure if Vickers would be able to ever race again after a health issue side-lined him. In fact it could have even killed him, so his winning yesterday was a great ending to a long story. Maybe this will mean Vickers can find a full-time ride for next year. Congratulations Brian Vickers!
I love Vera Bradley! Everyone that knows me knows this. I’m always caring a Vera Bradley bag. In fact every day I have a least ten pieces of Vera Bradley with me at one time. When we went to Disney World I took about 25 pieces with me. This past weekend when we went away for a couple of nights I had a least 15 pieces with me. When I found out that come fall the Disney Parks are going to start selling Mickey and Minnie Vera Bradley bags I was overly excited. Two of my favorite things rolled into one.! I can’t wait to either order one on-line or get one next year if/when I go back to Disney World. So when I found out there is a Vera Bradley Outlet Store in the newly reopened Opry Mills Mall in Nashville, I was a little excited. After all Nashville is one of our favorite places to travel for a weekend getaway. Well this past weekend that is where we went to get away, Nashville! The only thing I had on my list was to hit three stores in the mall; Disney, Vera, and Bass Pro. I know that is a strange list but that is where this Southern Belle wanted to shop at. Disney and Vera because well as you can tell I love Disney and I am obsessed with Vera Bradley Bags. Bass Pro because I wanted to see what kind of Duck Commander/Duck Dynasty stuff they had. Getting back on track now. On Saturday I made it to the Vera Bradley Outlet. Well I am not going to lie I was a little disappointed with it. The prices were okay and they were having a great sale but I think I do better purchasing from the on-line outlet. I did purchase a few things, and for the few things I did purchase I had to wait about a half hour in line in an extremely hot store, I was about to pass out by the time I got to the register. If I was purchasing on-line I could have done it in my PJ’s and with the AC freezing me out! In fact I was very disappointed with the whole mall, if I ever go back to that mall it will be too soon!
