Merrell Shoes

I have a pair of Merrell slides that I loved wearing.  They are 3-4 years old, but still in really great shape.  I put them on one day last week and headed to work.  As I was getting out of the car to meet hubby at lunch, my right foot started to feel cooler than usual.  I looked down to see that the whole side of the shoe had come unsewn.  

I had to go quickly buy another pair of shoes and was about to throw the pair of Merrell's away when I decided to wait and see if there was any kind of warranty.  I am so glad I waited because the shoes do have a lifetime warranty!   

I reached out to Merrell and spoke to a really nice lady named Heather and now I am going to send them back for free replacement.  All I have to do is pay the shipping.  It will be well worth it to have them replaced.  

Orange Crush

My Orange Crush Daylily has begun to bloom.  My plant has over 50 buds on it right now.

Memorial Day Thanks

Thank you to the men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice so that we may maintain our freedoms.  Also thank you to the families who have lost loved ones.  We are forever grateful for all that you and your family have given.  We will forever be in your debt.

I Wanna Marry Harry

I watched the show "I Wanna Marry Harry" tonight.  The person truly does look remarkably like Prince Harry and seeing the way these ladies behaved really cracked me up.  Sadly, I like the person he sent home this week.  She seemed down to earth and wasn't focused on the fact that it could be Harry.

Funny Sayings

Here are a few sayings from a t-shirt catalog that I thought were funny.

"You should not hold a fart in; it travels up your spine and in to your brain.  That's where crappy ideas come from."

"Be the kind of woman that when you put your feet on the floor, the devil says 'oh crap, she's up!'"

"If guns kill people, then pencils misspell words, cars make people drive drunk, and spoons make people fat."

We get this catalog every month or so and it always has funny sayings.

Cafe Monte

Tonight I tried bouillabaisse for the first time.  I was at the Cafe Monte in Charlotte.  It was excellent.

Traveling Again

I am traveling for business again this week.  When I first started traveling, I really dreaded it. I wasn't comfortable with the airport routine, I was nervous about missing a connection, and in general just felt very anxious.  This is the first trip where I didn't feel the anxiety.  Perhaps I am finally getting used to the travel.  

I know I will travel at least 3 more times this year and maybe more depending on the projects I am assigned.
