Totally Fabulous!

Sweet Mrs. Katie tagged me for this fabulous award! Thank  you, Ma'am! 

There are 2 rules once you receive this:
1. You must list 5 current obsessions.
2. You must pass this on to 5 people.

So...My 5 current obsessions are as follows:

1. My new house! I'm sure you could have guess that but it's true! I'm loving the house and can't wait to be completely settled!

2.  White couches. I really really really want white couches for my sitting room. I want to paint the room turquoise and have white couches with pink, turquoise and green pillows...I love it...but I can't find any that I like for a reasonable price!

3. InDesign. I love my job laying out pages for the paper and I really really want to start designing invitations and cards as a freelance gig.

4. Slushies from Sonic. It's 1000 degrees here...need I say more?

5.  Macee. My sweet puppy who I have to get spayed next month and am terrified to do so. Wanna know why? Read here...

Thank you Katie! The lovely ladies that I tag are:

1. Heather at Live. Love. Laugh.

Have a wonderful weekend ladies! I'm spending the night hanging with my hunnie and then tomorrow the unpacking and cleaning continues, a birthday party for my grandma and then Sunday I plan to finish all of the cleaning and unpacking! ALL OF IT!!! 

Dear Comcast, You suck and I hate you!

So all of you read yesterday about the drama I'm having with Comcast...Well, last night in the middle of watching the news my cable box decided to quit working. Apparently, it gets off work at 8:15 p.m...right in the middle of a show. So I called Comcast and they kept telling me my cables weren't plugged in. Which, being as that I'm not an idiot, I check before I called them. I do have dogs. 

Then the guy proceeded to tell me to change the source about 462 times. I only have 3 sources so I didn't get that. Plus, once source had no cables attached to it and the other was attached to the DVD player so I knew which one it needed to be on. He kept asking me to reconnect the box myself...um, hello! If I knew how to do that, I'd be the person answering the phone calls when customers called!

I am so frustrated with Comcast. I now have no tv in my living room and no wireless internet. All because Comcast is full of a bunch of  idiots who hire other idiots who don't know what they are doing. I sad on the phone with them for over an hour and got nothing accomplished. Then, when my husband got home, he did the same...with nothing accomplished. 

I did call to file a formal complaint yesterday. Something I've never done before. The supervisor who took my complaint said, in these exact words, "Ma'am, I understand you are frustrated but you are not the only customer who doesn't get service on the day they go out there. Sometimes they send a guy who specializes in internet and he can't do the cable."

WHAT?! Seriously?! At that point, I thought I was being punked and was ready to punch Ashton Kutcher in the face! I was really really nice about the whole thing until he said that...then I unleashed and told him that Comcast had a bunch of idiots running the business and they should have sent 3 people out if that's what it took the get the job done. 

I miss Direct TV...too bad they are so freaking expensive!

Home Sweet Home!

The last week has been complete chaos! Prepare yourselves for a LOOOONG post! Ok, it's long for me...

Thursday we closed on our house! It was a pretty painless experience. It took us about an hour and a half. Our realtor was probably the worst realtor ever! For one, she showed up with everything but I think she may have forgotten her stripper pole at home. The girl was wearing a SUPER tight black shirt and a silky SUPER tight black skirt that laced up the back! And...she brought her boyfriend! I'm thinking about bringing Bobby to work with me from now on....what do you think?

Friday I headed back to my padre's house to pack our things up and we moved in on Sunday. B had to head to Mississippi to pick up the U-Haul that had everything else in it and we've been moving ever since. 

I'm absolutely loving being in the house. I've already tested out my pool and hot tub and love them! We finally got almost everything unpacked and I'm going to start looking for sitting room furniture here in the next couple of weeks. I'm thinking about buying white couches...what do you think? Have you ever had white furniture? Pros and cons? I need help! But i have this sort of theme that I want. I love the shabby chic look and what to convey that in our sitting room. 

There are a few upgrades we want to make to the house. For instance EVERY room in the house (except for the den) needs new paint. The people who lived there before were old and have wallpaper in the kitchen and bathrooms that needs to go. Also, we are going to remodel our bathroom and kitchen. It's a small price to pay for our dream house! 

Last night the Comcast team showed up and did a terrible job! I'm known to call the BBB at late hours of the night to file a complaint when my heels break, but I've never called a company to file a formal complaint like I will do today. The guy showed up and didn't know how to install wireless Internet (which is what we asked for), he didn't activate our extended cable channels like Showtime and Cinemax (which we asked for), he didn't use HDMI cables to hook up the DVR boxes (which I specifically asked for...twice!). We were on the phone with them all night. And then, we have to wait 2 more weeks to get another technician out there to do our Internet. I think they are the ones who screwed up and they should come back out today!

I want to post pictures of the house but B thinks I divulge too much information on my blog as it is. I'll get some up there but I will have to Photoshop my address and stuff out. Also...No more using B's full name and no more pics of him. I need to get a little more private on this thing! So, give me some time and I'll get you some photos!!

And I promise to be back to my commenting soon!
