The Poppies (and other news)!



My friend, Rachel, nominated my vintage shop for a Poppy Award (yearly awards created by Poppy Talk Handmade)!  I am one of like, 36 other shops in the "Best Vintage Shop" category...  so, in fear of coming in dead last, I thought I would encourage you guys to vote for me!  I think that we can vote everyday, but only once a day?  Anyway, here is the link to VOTE!  Remember, my shop is High Street Market...  in case you didn't know.

In other news, I hate Verizon.  Hate.  I am working at Panera right now (and in case you were wondering, the Vermont Mac 'N Cheese here is divine).  Verizon sucks and never fails to let me down.  I'm the dumb girl that keeps coming back for more I guess.  I was supposed to have internet transferred from the condo to the house on Friday, and while the internet is gone from the condo it is DEFINITELY not connected in the house.  So, to sum it up: I don't have internet anywhere.  And, I am paying for it.  To rub it in, I got an automated phone call from Verizon telling me "Congratulations on your new home!  Your internet service is now up and running! Please call us with any questions!"  ... NO IT'S NOT!  I hate them.

But to be positive, I love Direct TV.  They are awesome and would never let a girl down.  They showed up on time, did what they were supposed to do...  got our TVs up and working.  Love them. 

Love Direct TV, and Verizon is my enemy.

Oh, and I almost forgot to tell you...  We spent our first night in the new old house last night.  We woke up to pouring POURING rain, found a mysterious water leak in one room and the power went out!  The day can only get better from here, right?

Happy Monday!

Aw, I'm so sorry! :( Those situations are the worst; I always feel powerless and that makes me want to yell. But congratulations on the nominations! (And I agree, DirecTV is pretty great!)

That's just awful, Kelly. My handyman is here working on our tub, and if I could send him to your house right now, I would. Hang in there! xoxo

I can feel your pain. My husband and I bought a house in the country, and Verizon said that to run a internet line to our house would cost us nearly $10k. We had dial-up (DIAL-UP!!) for a while, but now we both plug into our Blackberries to get high-speed. Verizon is a real PITA sometimes.

Congrats on the house, though. Sorry for the first-night mishaps, but isn't it exciting! I had mispaced my birth-control pills the first night we moved into our house. We ended up getting pregnant with our first baby THAT NIGHT!! I guess I'm that .1%. Trying to renovate a 1800's farmhouse with a 1-year old and another due in a few weeks is not easy!
