I thought loving but dreary was the way to go considering what you're about to read. Now, off you go....
Yesterday afternoon, I came home to not one but TWO Rue La La packages on my front step! Try to contain your excitement for me; I know it's difficult. The first thing that crossed my mine was, "YAY!" The second thing that crossed my mind was that perhaps I shop online a bit more frequently than I thought because I really had no idea what was in these boxes.
That's either a bad thing or it's like Christmas, you decide.
So there they were, gleaming in the uncharacteristically cool afternoon:
|Ok, so maybe by this point they were gleaming on my kitchen counter but that's beside the point|
And the contents??? Oh..how fun! I totally forgot I ordered this lovely Michael Kors number. What I really liked about the shipment was that the dress wasn't shrink wrapped in some crappy plastic. It was hung neatly on a hanger and placed delicately in the box. Not a wrinkle on the thing. Ready to wear, as they say! :)

|Quality designers put thought and structure into the details. I love that this belt was not flimsy and fit the dress (and me) perfectly!|
|Dark wash J Brand jeans|
|Guess I took this one in case you thought I was lying|
All in all, a pretty good score; especially when you consider how deep the discounts are on Rue La La. By the way, if you haven't created an account from them, you really should. It's a great site; very user friendly and I've bought everything from mixing bowls to running shoes to designer duds...most at a deep deep discount.
By now, you're probably wondering why any of this is "bitter" anything. Well, so far, all was well and then I went to turn my camera on to look at the photos and this happened to my screen:
|What the holy hell is that?!?! A poltergeist camera, that's what!|
And by "happened" I mean it really happened. It wasn't as if I turned it on and the screen was immediately crap. I actually watched the last photo disintegrate into crap slowly. I tried everything I could think of. Removing the SD card, removing the batteries, replacing the batteries, turning if off/on, plugging it into the computer, etc etc. Nothing seemed to work. I guess it just figures that I'd start a new hobby that pretty much required a camera and my camera would go kaput. It's not like it's a huge deal. It wasn't a terribly expensive camera and we've had it for a while but still...
So I'm taking suggestions if you have any for good blogging cameras...or good overall cameras. It will need to be portable and sturdy because I am, in fact, portable and sturdy...but also clumsy and prone to losing things :)
Other than that wee little mishap, TGIF kiddies!
