Fabulous Friday

Hellooo bloggy peeps! First of all, have you entered my fabulous first giveaway yet? If not, follow this link and leave a comment on the post. Winner is being chosen on Monday 8/2.

How is everyone today?  It's FRIDAY peeps!!!  Aren't you all excited??  Fridays are so much better now that I don't have to work all weekend at Target.  Every Friday at work at the office, people would be all, "Aren't you excited it's Friday?"  And I would be like, for what???  I have 2 8 hour shifts to look forward too, no I am NOT excited.  Now, I'm the one asking.  I love it :)

Today was a particularly fabulous Friday because it was my company picnic at work, and I only needed to put in 3 hours.  Then, J and I went to get his first full paycheck from the new job and guess what.. for the first time in almost 2 years, he was able to give me half for bills.  (For those that don't know, he was laid off almost 2 years ago and finally just now got a good, full time job!!)  I honestly don't even know which one of us was happier about it, because he has been so stressed for so long about not being able to contribute enough, and I have been so stressed working either two jobs, or a crazy amount of overtime at my full time job.  Overtime isn't even an option since I got promoted to a salaried position, hence needing to work at Target for so long.  But today, it's like it solidified that things are starting to look up.  I hope it stays this way for a long time, I still don't fully grasp the fact that I don't need to stress anymore.  Wow. 

Anyway... one more reason it was a great day was because I met Chelsea Handler today!!!!  She had a book signing in Raleigh and I went with my friend Lindsay.  We weren't allowed to take pictures with her, but I got a couple from a distance.

I f-ing LOVE Chelsea Handler.  I think she is the most hilarious person, and she is teeny tiny in person!  I knew she was thin, but she is so short!  She's adorable, and really friendly and soo pretty, and... I'm going on and on, but I just love her and I'm so happy that I met her for 10 seconds of my life.

Sorry there are no food pics for today, but tomorrow I will be going to the Farmers Market again so I'm sure I will have lots of good stuff then.  I hope you all are having a good day!  See ya tomorrow :)

That's great that you got to meet a favorite author, but why no pictures with her? Just to speed the line up? Did I mention that my favorite Podcaster's in Raliegh? Mur Lafferty, of I Should Be Writing.

Will- She only had an hour before her show, so we got tickets when we bought the book and were told that because of the time restraint, she wouldn't be able to take pics with people.

Viv- J and I both love her!! He was going to come till he heard how rushed it would be and then he didn't. Hopefully she comes through again and has more time someday!
