Conversation #10: Please tell me a wig isn’t normal

So I have this weird hobby; I like to watch the home shopping channels, even though I have never bought anything and probably never will through that medium.  Although, they do tempt me.  One of my favorite hours to watch is the D*ooney & Bour*ke purse hour on QVC, because let’s face it, I have a purse addiction.

I don’t own any of said purses, but I just love oogling over them and seeing the new pretty colors and styles.  I really have no idea why this entertains me so, but cheap thrills I guess!

Anywho, one day while looking through the guide during my lunch break (I live close enough to go home – it is amazing and I recommend it), I saw in the little preview screen a girl I thought was modeling a wig.  Guess what?  I was right.  I had to check it out because I think wigs are a bit weird unless you have a good reason for wearing one.  Well, it was Ken Pa*ves with his Hair*do line with Jessica Simp*son, and they were advertising the long wig (picture is from Amazon):

Honestly, the picture just can’t explain the ridiculousness of the segment, but here is the part that really got me.  The QVC salesperson during this hour was trying to sell to the American public that wearing a different wig everyday, in a different color and style is NORMAL!  What?!  Please blog friends, tell me this isn’t so.  When did it become normal to wear a wig unless you needed to?  I mean, I work with a lot of men who don’t notice a new haircut, but they would most definitely notice me (with short, blond hair) if I walked in with long, flowing red locks one day and jet black the next.  That is NOT normal my friends!  I’m not alone on this, right?

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 …
