Conversation #1

If you have followed or read my blog back when it was “Not Your Typical Engineer” then “A Pretty Peony” then “A Sassy Engineer” and now “Conversations with a Conservative,” you may have realized I am apparently quite indecisive.  Well, not entirely, for some reason I had no problem making decisions about our wedding or what I house I liked best – I just flounder with the small inconsequential stuff.

Perhaps I am a bit backwards.

Anyway, no major changes here other than the titles of my blog.  I still want this to just be a place to converse, and I really hope y’all start conversing more (hint hint).  I knew I was running a risk in losing a lot of followers when I jumped ship from the old address, but I really needed a change.  In fact, it is hard for me to believe it will be two years this September since I first started blogging.  Anyway, I’m liking this blog for now.  I like the title – it is sooooooooo me.  I LOVE to talk (too much I’m told) and I still hold pretty true to my conservative roots (as my “about me” says, this isn’t just politically).  I also like the header I created and the new colors.  I have had so much pink and green in my life (from my wedding to now multiple cute baby showers) that I just need to shed that too.

Anywho, I really do hope you readers will invite others into the conversation, and I’m hoping to be much more consistent from now on in starting the conversation.  I can’t wait to hear from you all!

OMH, yesterday a pharmacist I work with asked me if I was out of breath from talking to a patient for a while and I looked at her like she was crazy and proclaimed... "K. have you met me? There is never too much talking for me :)" Haha... I think you and I could go all day girl!

Conversation #114: Wardrobe Checklist (and retail detox update)

I read something a while back that sort of spurred me into thinking I needed to do this whole retail detox thing.  I'm just going to get it out there - it has been way hard for me and I'm super embarrassed and disappointed by that.  I did well for the first two weeks, and then I got into this buying and returning things habit because I felt bad after buying it.  I told myself that I could still buy things, but only with extra money I earned from ebay.  That worked for a while too, but then I caved to the Lands' End Canvas sale last weekend.  I bought three tees, a skirt, and a cardigan.  I think that all but maybe one tee will be going back and hopefully I can stop this extra shopping. 

Okay, back to the "thing" I read...

It was an article in Real Simple magazine targeted at helping you never buy the wrong thing again.  It has great tips in it, and the wardrobe checklist it includes really brought it all back home to me.  I started going through the checklist an…

The Post Office Blonde Moment

(Photo from: http://www.nauvoonews.com/nauvoo_photos.htm)

So I found a new satchel purse that I'm very excited about.  I got a better deal on this one than the other, and it is from one of my favorite purse companies, The Sak.  Here is a picture of it:
I decided that I needed to return a purse I bought from them a couple of weeks ago though to feel good about this purchase.  I bought it thinking I would love it, but I just couldn't make the shape fit for me.  I let it sit for a week or so, but it wasn't happening.  I was just going to keep it because the thought of returning it sounded like a hassle until this bag was revealed on their website, and it was waaaaay marked down for a week!  I decided I would just send the other one back, and so began the post office debacle.

I lost a little faith in the USPS this week - at least the local one near me.  I went on Monday night to pick up a priority mail box, and they were all out.  Plus, there were like 20+ people in line.  I de…

Conversation #203: So I married my mom

I don't know if people say this to men, but I heard a lot while growing up that girls tend to marry someone like their dad (I guess good, bad, or ugly).  I don't know how true that really is, but relatively early on in our marriage, my husband and I realized I married my mom.

This doesn't mean my husband is feminine or my mother masculine, but to say that they seem to be the same person.  I am definitely more like my dad personality wise so it probably make sense that I married someone more like my mom.  Now I will say my mom, being an actual woman, generally makes her a bit more empathetic and understanding to the eccentricities of being a woman.  I don't think any man, my husband or otherwise, will ever be able to understand the intricacies of being a woman. However, I also feel like he can talk to my mom, and being that they have both lived with me and seem to speak the same language,  can benefit from her wisdom and knowledge of co-habitating with me and enlighten …
