I never though it would be so hard to give away free stuff of the 15 entries in the giveaway who I announced EVERYONE won I only received 2 emails for prizes? OK ladies you have 48 hours to email me your address!! FREE STUFF!! Serious...
I start a new job tomorrow and I am SUPER excited! Its another restaurant job but its a HUGE change from where I have been working. Its RIGHT downtown San Francisco and I get to wear jeans!!
I have mixed emotions though, I have been at my current restaurant job almost 3 years. In those 3 years I have worked in 3 different states and the company is amazing. For any server to stay at one place for 3 years speaks volumes of the company. I just think I am a little burnt out with it. I am hoping this new job will give me the change I need to continue to stay at my current place which I will be going down to part time.
Went and saw Hereafter.. The MOST HORRIBLE movie I have seen in a long time.

***Due to circumstances beyond my control (I am so disappointed) I was originally going t0 have the giveway in order to raise funds for a family in need. I have since found out that this was not the case and anyone who donated I am SO sorry but your money will be refunded!***
So to start off when the hubby and I first got married we bought EVERYTHING from Ashley furniture (7 years ago).
We loved the stuff, it was well made and lasted us 7 years. When we moved we sold it all on Craigslist (I think they should start paying me for the self promotion?)
Anyways we moved to San Francisco and we need all new stuff, we checked a few places around and then WENT 45 miles out of our way to go to an Ashley store we found the couch, chair and coffee and end tables we loved!
We ordered it and then all hell breaks loose...
1. They told us 3 weeks from the time we ordered and IT TOOK 5 weeks.
2. When the stuff arrived THE DRIVERS WERE BELLIGERENT! They cussed and were dropping f-bombs like candy. I struck up a conversation with the "lovely" young gentlemen and I was informed "Today my last day I do not get paid enough to deal with this fucking bullshit, I have only worked here 4 days"
The other guy chims in "Today is my fucking first day and probably my last"
It took them an hour to get the sofa in the door. I had to talk them out of hanging it over the balcony to get it in (serious I can not make this shit up!)
And then one of the guys says "umm excuse me but these fucking tables broken, did you still want them?"
So we refused the tables and as soon as they were out of earshot I called Ashleys customer service (if you can call it that) to file a complaint.
I also told them at that time we did not want the tables, cancel the order and just credit us.
I was told she would need to call me back.
4 days later still no call.
I call them and finally get an apology and told we would receive credit for the delivery (they also left all the garbage at the bottom of the stairs)
And they say they will call back about the tables (that I clearly stated we did not want)
So the call my husband back and tell him we can not cancel the order.
And then I call back and they try to tell me that my husband told them to order the tables again.
I was told by 4 different people we would not be refunded for the tables.
SO I spoke to the boss, the bosses boss and we received refund for the tables!! I can not believe that they would put customers through this. Only to give refund anyways?
Oh and to TOP IT ALL OFF? Yeah, what we were told we were paying for the set they are giving us a refund of $60 less than what we were told we were paying!!
But the good from the bad is we really love our couch and chair!
I love the site, we sold so many things and now that we are settled I am looking to pick up a few pieces.
So far in our move I have landed a BEAUTIFUL hutch for the kitchen for storage and a dinning room buffet that the hubby HATES, he even offered to pay to have the delivery guy drop it down the stairs. (story coming on that)
While I was persusing furniture on the site this picture was interesting?
Look closely? At the reflection in the tv... Is that guy sitting on the couch NAKED?
Well Friday was my birthday! Yay!! I love birthdays but in the last couple of years I cry on my birthday.
And its a mixed bag, I cry cause I am so blessed and so many friends and family wish me happy birthday (I LOVE facebook) and then I am sad because I am away from home.
And my mom sent me the best email.
And then my dad calls and I cry after that.
Saturday I made the hubby and I a yummy breakfast and we headed out to "look at a new car he was interested in"
Which turned into "I don't like that car, lets go test dry the first car I loved and buy it" (whole post coming about that)
Then we went to a free movie (I love me some free stuff) we went and saw a free pre-screening of "Life as we know it" With Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel.... Thank goodness it was free, wait for it on video. It was a cute movie but so not worth paying to see in the theater.
So before we moved I was on my way home from work and spotted a garage sale that was closing up.
This little gem caught my eye.. She was SO ugly, but it turns out the lady was packing up and did not want to drag in back into the garage and I paid $2 for this baby.... The lady had just reupholstered it and I LOVED the top of it... I know shes ugly...
So I took off the legs....
Sprayed her with primer...
And they sprayed her black...
Voila she still has a little life left in her.. And I now LOVE it, we were looking for something for the end of the bed because its so high and sometimes at night Daisy trys to jump and falls off.. I thought this would make it easier..
And now that we are all moved into our new place... there is no room for her...
The story of a girl and her husband (8 years and going strong) and the dog we rescued.I started to blog 10 years ago when I knew I would be leaving Canada to be a wife in the USA, Join me on this adventure of shoes, shopping, travel and everything else thrown in. Oh and just for fun we thought we would battle an ugly beast called Cancer the hubby was diagnosed November 15th, 2010 and you can find us over here too...
