PILLOWS: Yay or Nay?!?

So you know Brian and I moved into our new place back in April. In May we bought our new couch from Macy's furniture and I love it.. It's awesome. I saw pillows from Macys that i really, really liked but couldn't bring myself to spend $125 for 1 pillow. It's just way to much $$, eventhough they were perfect. Brian and I have decided to to a beachy theme throughtout the place since we are living at the Beach. We have done, brown, white, light blue, and creme throughtout the apartment. So for months I have been searching and searching for the perfect pillows but couldn't find anything that I liked or I would find something I loved and it just didn't match. I looked in tons of stores and online at tons of reputable sites.
I was looking for to get something blue to coordinate and we couldn't find anything...

Yesterday while I was suppossed to be shopping for a gift for someone else I decided to stop in the pillow section of the store. I saw these pillows (see below).
I think I like, I think I may even really like them, but I'm not too sure. And I know, I know - I'm being crazy about pillows. I don't even know why!?! But I found these pillows and they were very cheap and are made very nicely ($12.00 a pillow not bad huh).
So what do you think, do you like 'em?
Yay or Nay?

Blackberry Storm - Pro or Con

So I currently have a Blackberry and I looooooove it! I love everything about it except for the fact that it is getting a little old and a little beat up. I have the Blackberry Pearl and was thinking about upgrading to the Storm but have heard soooooo many mixed reviews on it. So I thought to ask you guys. Have you heard anything on this phone? Give me the good and the bad? I really want to hear from people that have had experiences with it or know someone who has. It's a big strp to upgrade your phone cause with upgrading comes learning and getting acquainted with all of the new things which can be one big pain in the ass. So before I go and splurge let me know what you think! I really REALLY want the IPhone but Verizon doesn't carry them....

New Show - Nurse Jackie

Have you seen the new show Nurse Jackie on HBO?
I've been watching them OnDemand as they come on and I am really liking it. I wouldn't say I love the show but I'm really digging it!! I always liked Edie Falco when she was in The Sopranos so i figured I'd give this show a try. Besides, I love watching DVR'd or OnDemand shows because I can watch them at my own pace. I really love getting up early with Lola, making a cup of coffee, and cuddle with her as I watch my shows!!
What is it with me and ER/Hospital dramas? I just love 'em!
Here is a little bit abour Nurse Jackie:
Nurse Jackie Peyton is far from ordinary. As an ER nurse, she navigates the rough waters of a crumbling healthcare system, doing everything she can to provide her patients with the best care possible. Whether she’s lighting into a smug doctor for failing to heed her advice, or stealing a fat money clip from a man who stabbed a prostitute and giving it to a pregnant widow, or forging the organ donor card of a man who just died, Jackie Peyton is compelled to make sense of the chaos and to level the playing field whenever she can. Right or wrong, it’s Jackie’s brand of justice all made that more manageable by a daily diet of prescription pain medication.

Check it out on Showtime, Monday Nights @ 10:30.... It's pretty good!

Stolen English Bulldog Puppies...... HELP!!!!!!

Below are 2 pictures of Lola's brother & cousin that were stolen from the breeder's house last Thursday in Freehold, New Jersey.
They were stolen from the front of their house.
There is a $5,000 reward for their safe return.

I know a lot of you reading my blog don't live in NJ or the surrounding area but MANY OF YOU DO!!! I check my Google Reader everyday and a TON of people are from NJ, NY, & PA...




Oliver was someone's puppy. The breeders were petsitting him while his very, VERY now devastated owners were on vacation. They want him back - no questions asked just returned safely.

THIS IS OLIVER - Oliver is a 14 week old English Bulldog Puppy
THIS IS HARLEY - Harley is an almost 12 week old English Bulldog puppy.
Brian and I actually named Harley! We really loved him as well but really wanted a girl. If we had more room we would have bought him too!! I feel so sad and hope they are ok!!
If you see them or know anything please feel free to email me or leave a comment on this post! Anything you can do, especially spreading the word is greatly appreciated!

The Bachelorette - Who Will She Pick?

So by now I'm sure you all know how much i LOVE bad reality TV... I love love love it! I don't know why. I know most of it is fake, but it entertains me.... especially The Bachelor & The Bachelorette.. I watch them all and I love them all... And I'm usually good at picking the boys that will make it to the end... I love seeing the exotic places they travel too, the beautiful dresses they wear, the good dinners they eat, and all of the amazing dates they go on.. It's a lot of eye candy, especially when there at 25 hot guys (well they are not all hot, but most.)
I really like Jillan this season.. She seems so nice and like such a real girl....

So who will she pick?
Kipton or Ed

TGI The Weekend.. Almost..

I'm sooooooo happy it's Friday and that the weekend is almost here...Brian has been so busy and we've been on different schedules this week that we really have spent much time together. So tonight and the entire weekend we can spend some quality time together and just relax.

Saturday Plans

Go to the beach, go for a ride on the Harley (weather permitting), attend a 1st B-day Party, Have dinner & drinks with good friends.

Sunday Plans

Going to the beach, and RELAX ALL DAY LONG.

I am sooo happy we have no plans for Sunday. I love days when we can just relax. Since we are living right on the beach we can go back and forth.. Brian and I don't like staying at the beach alllll day long. We both get bored so we do like an hour at a time. Which is good especially since we got Lola. We go back and forth, take her out, get some lunch, have a few drinks. It really is a good situation and so conveniant especially since beach parking is always crazy!!

What about you? Any big plans this weekend?

Whatever you do I hope it's a good one! ENJOY :)

A Different Me!

So i really think I need to change my way of thinking and the way I act.
I'm going to rant for a quick minute so stay with me.
I like to think I'm a really nice person. I have a HUGE heart, I'm caring towards others, Infact I tend to put everyone else before myself. And I think that's where my problem starts.
I'm a pleaser and I love to do things for others. But i start to get upset because people don't really ever seem to return the favors. I mean i don't expect people to do anything for me I guess it would just be nice every now and then for someone to think about me the way i think about them. I don't look for big things just the simple things!!! The simple things sometimes make all the difference in the world.
Maybe I'm feeling a little sad today, a little stressed, a little out of it... I don't know why!! I'm missing something but i can't quite put my finger on it... Anyway i hope I figure it out soon or I'm going to be washing a lot of wine glasses. Red wine usually solves the problem, no it usually makes it feel better, at least for the night!!

Skater Dog

Today Lola had her 2nd skateboarding lesson and I will say she did better then I expected!! Brian and I are hoping that one day she will be as good as Tillam the dog in the video. I guess this will be my hobby fpr the summer. A skateboarding bulldog - what's cooler then that? lol

If you have any, and I mean ANY tips on how to train Lola to skateboard it would be greatly appreciated!! And I promise I will try and post video or pics soon... Right now I'm just too consumed with trying to get her on the board and stay on the board...

Wish us luck.. We are having lesson #3 tonight when Brian gets home..

And check out the video. It really is amazing and sooooo funny... That pup is sooo better then I could ever be, lol...

My New Purchase

I really have been trying to save and I haven't bought myself anything, aside from the Puppy, in a long time! But I saw this dress in Nordstrom, and if you know me, you know that I LOVE to wear dresses in the summer. I'm just so much more comfortable in them. I'm truly a flip-flop beach dress kinda girl!!
So I saw this dress and thought it was really cute and very comfortable.. And affordable to boot!!
Check out Nordstrom , they always have cute dress for low prices!!!!

A Good Day

Yesterday was like the perfect day!
Brian and I spent the day together just relaxing and enjoying each other.
We went for a bunch of rides on the Harley cause the weatehr was just amazing... The breeze coming off the Ocean was just awesome... So we played around and went for a few trips around town, crusin up and the down the streets..
We also relaxed ont he beach for a little bit and tried working on our tans. We all know we needed to do this cause the rain has truly put a damper on the tanning this summer, lol!
We also BBQ'd, played with Lola, took her for a nice walk, and watched Fireworks..
The Fireworks were awesome. AND the best part was that we didn't need to go anywhere but our front lawn. So we took the pup out and the 3 of us sat cuddled together and enjoyed the 4th of July Celebrations... And when they were over we were lucky enough to walk right inside while others sat in traffic for an hour or so...

So I am hoping today's going to be another awesome day! The weather is perfect and I'm ready to enjoy this beachfront living!! Hell, I deerve it - we don't work hard for nothing!!

I hope everyone had a great, Happy & Healthy 4th of July!!! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
