Black is the new Friday... [a shabby apple giveaway]

I like to shop. Like a lot. Like so much my husband cries over the receipts... Well, not really, but I really do like to shop. Black Friday, however... I do not like. The crowds, the crazies, the excess of it all. And for ME to not like excess... Well, you know its bad. Frankly, to me, there is no deal worth going out in that madness.

Will I be shopping though? Duh. I'll just be doing it from the comfort of my own home on that little thing called the internetz. And were will I be shopping you ask? Lots of places. But I want to tell you about one of them in particular... Shabby Apple. Oh, you heard of it have you? Not surprising as its only like the CUTEST stuff ever. Srsly, I can't get over how cute. I want everything. Only for fear that i might ACTUALLY make my husband cry, I will show some self restraint, and not order one of everything :)

I'm sure you are wondering, what does this have to do with me? Blah blah blah, Jessica talks way to much, blah blah blah. Stop blahing! I want to give you something! You, yes you. Because yesterday was Thanksgiving and I am thankful for YOU, I have partnered with Shabby Apple to give one of you a little something to show you how thankful I am!

Shabby Apple has a Alice in Wonderland inspired jewelry collection right now and its fabulous. I have a special love for Alice in Wonderland (see #13 HERE) so I just had to pick one of them for one of you!

I mean, I die. Srsly. So cute. I love it. Do you love it? If you do, enter my giveaway! Here's how:

Oh and a quick PSA... If you are out and about tomorrow shopping, be nice to the people helping you in the stores. Without them, well you would have to get your own sizes :)

Quakepocalyse 2011

We've had Snowmageddon, record high and record low temps, F5 tornadoes and now...


In the past 3 days we, here in good ol' Oklahoma, have had THREE earthquakes!!! Three. Tres. Trois. And big ones too! The "fore-shock" came in at 4.5, the BIG ONE was rated 5.6 (the biggest in Oklahoma history) and the after-shock was 4.7. Lets just talk about this for a second... I live in OKLAHOMA. Not California. We get ice,snow, HEAT, and heck we had tornadoes and flash flooding last night... But earthquakes? We are not equip to handle the stress. Twitter and Facebook nearly exploded. People were fa-reaking out. There was quite a bit of damage, mostly because people are not prepared for earthquakes here... Obviously.

Here at Cermak Manor we suffered some pretty devastating damage. But we shall carry on. We will rebuild. We will recover.

And just in case you forgot that I do in fact live in Oklahoma, this little gem was on the news...

I'm just waiting for what will come next... Hurricane? Volcano? Tsunami?

I missed you. That is all.
