I got my package on Friday but couldn’t post until now! I LOVED IT! October Julie's Dress 005

I was actually a little nervous when I got home because the mailman, had placed the package on the step instead of the chair like he usually does and it was raining really hard, so the package had   been in a puddle for who knows how long, but Amanda was really really smart and placed a perfect item on the end that was soaked:

Okay Are You Kidding Me???

So I work in a hotel… I have established this. I also have a pet and I love my Penni Puppy more than anything, she is like a child to me. BUT I understand that sometimes I can’t bring her places with me and sometime I will have to pay a fee for her.

Some people are allergic to dogs, and some dogs have fleas. and most hotels don’t take pets, and if they do there is a weight limit.

We are not a high price hotel, we don’t offer breakfast, just coffee and juice,  and that’s pretty much it. We do take pets, it’s $10 for a pet under 20 lbs. and $15 for a pet over 20lbs per pet per night.

So sometimes I find some of the phone calls I get funny.

like today for example,

Me: “Thank you for calling, how may I help you?”

Lady On The Phone (LOTP): “Ya’ll pet friendly?”

Me: “Yes Ma’am we are.”

LOTP: “There an extra fee?”

Me: “Yes Ma’am, how large is the pet?”

LOTP: “2 pets, both over 100lbs”

Me: "okay well pets over 20lbs are $15 per pet per night."

LOTP: "WHAT???? All you have to do is freaking vacuum. Why would you charge $30 per night? Would you charge for a 100lb kid???"

Me: “No ma’am but we do have a pet policy, because we must close the room down and deep clean incase of a guest with an allergy coming in.”

LOTP: “People aren’t allergic to pets this is bull!” CLICK

Sometimes I wish:..

I was still a Yankee, even a damn Yankee… I was born in Ohio, and grew up in NY and OH until we moved down south.

I miss the fall… We don’t really get it down here.

Even though we had GREAT weather the other day, it’s back up into the 80s again.

I miss going apple picking. I miss the leaves changing… we don’t get leaves change here, its green and then bare there’s no pretty colors or crunchy piles to jump in. fall

The only good smells come from candles, which is why I LOVE them. They make my house smell like fall, like apple cider, and cinnamon, and just fall.


What do you love/miss about fall?

Hey, It’s Okay….

So this is my first time linking up with this! Here goes:

Its Ok Thursdays

Hey, It’s Okay….

To spend over $100 on Bath and Body Works candles… I Just LOVE the smells!

To spend more money than you should on makeup products.

To change your nail polish every single day

To use a glow in the dark topcoat because you love the glowing nails!

To listen to and Sing Defying Gravity at the top of your lungs.

To just now be getting into the twitter thing…. @PheobesLife

To smile every time I get a new follower!

To be dying for November 1st when I can switch out my playlist for Christmas.

I’m Disappointed….

So  I saw that they are making a movie out of one of my favorite books, and it occurred to me that I had not yet gotten the series.

So I decided that I would jump on the ereader bandwagon… which I have been staunchly refusing to join because I like books. But I bit the bullet and because amazon had a sale going on I bought a Kindle Touch. Capture 

Looks cute huh? well I was excited until I got the confirmation letter…. they aren’t shipping it out until AFTER November 30th!! That’s OVER two months! and it’s not even like it’s a new one, this is the 2nd generation one.

So I didn’t get to buy my eBook series like I wanted but I did go to Books A Million and 128 dollars later, (I got other stuff…) I was the proud owner of book one…. Capture2

If you’ve not read this series or even just this book. I Highly recommend it! it’s a favorite of mine and  now I’m desperately hoping to get the rest of the series soon.

It’s Finally Fall and a Possible Swap?

I know that it has been fall for a while now, and in fact today is October 1st which means that I’m a whole month late but honestly, you can’t blame me. The temperature where I live has been constantly in the upper 80s-90s. That’s not fall to me.

Finally Fall!!

This is fall. Crisp air, jeans and scarves instead of shorts.

I lit my leaves candle from bath and body works again last night. I LOVE that smell. Its just apple cider and pumpkins, and happy.

Also I was thinking about something I did last year I participated in a recipe swap. It was so much fun and I really enjoyed it. Would anyone be interested in participating in one this year?

If you are interested send me an email, or leave a comment, or leave a message on my Facebook or send me a tweet!

I just want to know if anyone would be interested and if you are then I will set up the swap!
