Minus Blogspot

Quick Update – I’m trying to ditch the .blogspot – I’m not sure how to do this though. I bought the name, guess what http://www.graciefabulous.com/ IS available. So very exciting.

But I can’t get the two to connect. ugh. double ugh.

So it may be a few days before they connect and you are not re-directed to the godaddy.com site.

Babies! & Kansas City & no $

Lynn updated her baby blog finally… after like 6 months– so check that out – Baby Dunning in the line up on the right.

As mentioned earlier, most of my friends have babies. Lindsey – you need a blog for Stella.

It’s an Ice Day here today – not snow and really not a whole lot of ice but enough for me to stay home since I can’t get off the hill. I’m working from home, which I really enjoy. I think I am definitely disciplined enough to get things done on my own. The hardest part is not being able to just run across the office to talk to someone. I’m watching the True Hollywood Story of the cast of Full House. Jodie Sweeten didn’t age very well by the way…

I’m trying to figure out the best way to put some pictures on here.

I was in Kansas City all weekend long setting up my booths for the Wal-Mart Year Beginning Meeting – Here are some pics of my fabulous display booths. It was FREEEEEZING in KC – the high was 14 and the wind chill was below zero – I’ve never been to KC for anything but work but I’m going back in about a month for Cole’s Bachelorette party and I know it’ll be fun, no matter what the temperature!

Not much going on here – still vowing to not go out until Valentine’s Day so much unless its free – that’s going to work in our favor the next few weeks – I have a couple of Komen events and Young Professionals – all free! YAY!

Name Change

So I’ve decided to change my blog name – I hope this doesn’t mess anyone up… I know there are soooo many people that I’m sure have this book marked. Any way I have decided to do this because after finishing reading Bitter is the New Black – I really didn’t like the ending and liked even less the political views of the author. If you haven’t read the book, I’m not saying don’t read it – still a very funny read, but it really makes you think about the future of society – mainly from a political aspect. Or maybe I’m just a big geek – this is highly possible.

It was a pretty simple name change – Fabulous IS my word – I say it all the time, people on my team are trying to steal the usage of this word, but it just doesn’t work for them. Oh well.

Anyway, I’m printing off invitations for a party I am co-hosting in February – we’re having a Stock the Bar Party for some friends – the theme is Olive Us Are Getting Together! I sooo very much love the theme – see! drinking can lead to quite the creative mindset! I bought some big green paper lanternes and am going to have red helium balloons blown up inside of them so that they will look like olives and then have them floating all around. Also I’m going to have recipes for martinis and other fabulous drinks around in fun little picture clips. It’s going to be a blast and I’m so glad Brittany and Amanda are in this with me! I can’t wait.

Wow, I really am a slacker!

Yeah, so I haven’t written anything in a while. Anyway – a big, fat thanks goes out to Elizabeth for the reminder of the Taco Bell incident – I may not have remembered that, but she always knows how to make a girl feel good! Ha!

So this week I actually did pretty good – I want you to know that I (yes ME) turned down biscuits from Popeye’s – that is EXTREMELY hard to do! Mike wanted to go to Friday’s on Friday…(take this time to laugh at me, I know…) anyway I was very good there – I only had one drink, may have been the size of my head, but only one then I had grilled shrimp and broccoli! It was yummy. AND I haven’t had any taco bell this weekend – YAY me! I’ve also lost 3 pounds.

Big news of the week – Hilary won New Hampshire – VERY exciting! I’m thinking it was a bad idea for Kerry to back Obama, don’t you think it looks bad for Kerry to not even back the man he would have had for his own running mate — he should have at least waited til Edwards dropped out because Hilary beat the crap out of him. I think this country is ready for a Hilary/Obama ’08 ticket!

I’m trying to popularize the slogan: Hilary/Obama – I don’t care who’s on top.
Spread the word!!!

In other large news – since Christmas I know 3 people who have had babies – Lynn and Mikel had Mikel Dunning, Darla and Kevin had Anna Claire and Diana and Thomas had Chace Thomas. And for those of you who are not attached to entertainment news – Nicole Ritche had Harlow Winter Kate and Christina Aguliera had Max Liron – I really like those two names and am glad they were not called Heroin or Pomegranate or something like that…

Pretty much at all times in the past 3 years more than 80% of my friends have been pregnant. I have now decided to wait until my friends kids are old enough to baby sit before I have any of my own. I think that’s fair!

Have a fabulous week everyone!

First things first…

OK! This is my very first blog posting… nothing special. And FYI, the name of said blog could change, but here’s how it came about. I’m reading a FABULOUS book – Bitter Is The New Black by Jenn Lancaster, she has a blog http://www.jennsylvania.com/. I chose my blog name to model a bit after hers but also it has a few more idiosyncrasies to it. Vane (and it’s spelling) having double intentions. I hope to be of some guidance if nothing else in how not to act in certain situations or maybe how to better take yourself seriously or more lightly, depending on how you deciphered that — good luck! Vane also for the ever present vanity that we come into extremely close encounters with each day – hey it happens, I know it, you know it, the American paparatzi, glitterati and the rest of the free world know it. So that’s how this thing came about.

I am plannin to use it to hopefully free up some aggressions and also I’m going to use it as a food diary – I have to shed about 30 so pounds prior my high school reunion this summer! NO, I promise not to bore you with a list of boring foods on a daily basis, I actually hope to use this as the outlet and more of a reminder to keep my food diary going.

So here’s to my maiden voyage on this blog-mobile!
