Target...I am really disappointed in you

I was an avid Tori & Dean watcher, don't judge me. I love Tori Spelling's clothes. I really watched it to see what she was wearing, or at least that is what I told myself. One accessory she wore many times was this gold, braided headband. I wanted it. I found one on Target's website and it was only available online, so I ordered July. It's nearly September and I have yet to receive it. I checked on it today and it says I should receive it anytime between August 26th and September 7th. Whatever Target! This is the first and last time I will shop at

UPDATE 08-31-09:
I emailed Target today in regards to my order and their response was: um, yeah, about your's on backorder now...blah blah blah...we try to ship orders in a prompt fashion...blah blah...cancel your order if you want to, you're just one person and in the grand scheme of things, your $13 doesn't even make a dent...thank you for shopping Target.

I am really, really disappointed.

Mirror, mirror on the wall

I saw this in my Real Simple magazine and I loved it. Orly's new fall collection Once Upon A Time is available this September and I would love to get my hands on it ( pun intended). One color in particular Mirror, Mirror is the fairest of them all. I love gray. If you looked at my fall clothes you would find a lot of black, brown and gray. You can find Orly Nail Lacquer at Sally Beauty Supply and to see the other colors available and read a review click here.


Well, I'm still homeless. We had actually found the perfect house. It was awesome. Too good to be true apparently. It was in a great new development right smack dab in the middle of a bad neighborhood. But that wasn't the was the elementary school. I searched it online and was reading parent reviews. It was given one star out of 5. One parent said they wouldn't send a dog there and another stated that there were discipline problems on the playgrounds (bullying?). The staff didn't care and ignored this parent. Also there weren't computers in the classrooms. HUH? How can this be 2009 and no computers? I wanted the house but not at the expense of my children's education.
Back to the drawing board! We found several other homes that seemed great but they got snatched up before we could even look at them. It seems that a lot of people are renting now. We have competition.
Part of the problem is is that I am in North Carolina, staying with my dad. Chad is living on his boat. So he has to work, eat and work. He is also the boss so every time someone needs something he is always there. It's a huge pain. Not to mention the bed he sleeps in is for a 6' tall person. Chad is 6'6" and he has to duck...a lot! He has to work and find a house all by himself. I feel bad for him.
In the meantime I have enrolled the boys in school here in NC. I think getting them back into a routine and having something to do will help them and me.
I just hope that our quest for a home ends soon. Prayers welcome!
