Never Eat Candy from a Stranger

Yesterday at work, a man came in for a meeting with one of our tenants. While he was waiting, he asked me if I had some mints or gum. I had both in my huge purple bag, so I gave him some, and we started chatting about why he had bad breath. Apparently he sprays his mouth with this stuff that blocks all the fats, sugars, and carbs of anything he eats right afterwards. And then I did something really stupid. I tried it. He was offering it to me and his buddy was right there and I caved. Bad idea, right. Seriously, how did I get through high school without trying cigarettes, alcohol, or drugs?? It felt rude to just tell him no after pretending to be so interested in this product that makes food pass right through you without absorbing it. Not only was the spray gross, it completely changed the way food tasted in my mouth for hours. No explosive diarrhea yet, but I'm not counting anything out. Has anyone heard of that stuff? Maybe you can pass along some of the nutrition facts and side-affects?

Bells on her shoes

Here's my first attempt at bridal flip-flops. I've never heard of them before, and I don't know what they're supposed to look like but here's my best go at it.

Kaylene and I went shopping last weekend. She wanted some of my expert style advice. So, drawing upon all of my vast stores of fashion wisdom, I chose several outfits for her. What do you think?She actually got lots of really great new tops and an awesome pair of trouser jeans. Since Ned was such a good sport, he got a little something too:

And the job search is over....

...I think. I was offered a job as a receptionist at a legal firm today!! Hopefully everything goes as planned.
