A Blonde Moment (again!)

Standard

So this is a short and sweet story, but is very funny and could only happen to me. So about a week or so ago I get an email from my boss and the subject line reads “Craig’s List”. Just like this–same spelling, plural possessive, etc. Well the body of the email is about a new position that is posted at work, so the only Craig I know is our IT guy and I immediately think this needs to go to him. See my boss was wanting to figure out how to post the description on Craig’s List, so naturally I thought “Oh yea–Craig the IT guy would know”. Well I proceed to call him and leave a voicemail when he doesn’t answer. A few hours later,

It can happen to anyone!!!

still no call back from Craig I see him in the hallway leaving and ask if he got my voicemail. He says no and then tells me to email it to him, so that’s exactly what I do. I forward the email my boss sends me to Craig. Well guess what???? Craig emails me back saying he thinks she means the other “craigslist”. Ooops! Well I start to laugh hysterically-and immediately blame it on the fake hair color.

Anyways–so that no one feels like an idiot out there when stuff like this happens to them, remember you can always blame it on your hair color. And if you are not a blonde (naturally or by peroxide) then well you don’t have an excuse….

Ta Ta for now!

You say it’s your birthday…..

Standard

….it’s my birthday too yea’!

It has been a wonderful birthday week—–full of fun, friends and family. My husband and Dad both had to become party planners and did an EXCELLENT job. I also was able to experience the hilarious Dolly Parton and her sweet voice on Tues at the All for the Hall event. Let me just say that women is like a pixie stick–except for of course “the girls” and she had me

My Gurrrrrlllll!

laughing to whole time. ┬áMartina McBride and Allison Kruass also killed it that night. Then I had another magical music experience in spin class on Wednesday with my instructor playing some oldies but goodies! Not only did she have “Tearing Up My Heart” by NSync, but also “Hold On” by Wilson Phillips who I absolutely LOVED growing up. I new all the words of course and sang through the whole thing while on the bike.

This year I realized that I share a birthday month with A LOT of important people. First and foremost my Grandmother and Uncle both celebrate their Bdays in October (which I already knew), but I also share my birthDAY with some well-known celebrities. Susan Sarandon, Alicia Silverstone, and Jackie Collins are Oct. 4th babies, and so is Charlton Heston–WEIRD!!!

So to all of you who made my BIG 2-7 wonderful thank you and here’s to next year and the BIG 2-8! XOXO
