Wordless Wednesday

Confession: I have made my cat yodel

I wanna be a billionaire ...

so frickin bad! Haha, actually I'd be happy just being a millionaire honestly.

I bought my first powerball ticket ... ever. I kept having dreams about winning the lottery and instead of continuous putting it off, I decided to take a chance and play. Even though the numbers will not be announced until Wednesday, I am super excited and can't wait to see if I have won.

If I won, there is so many things I would want to do. I would pay off my student debt, pay off my car, go on an extravagant vacation, buy new gadgets, and probably by season tickets to University of Oklahoma football games. But first and foremost, I'd march over to a contractor and plan to build a house.

I don't think I'd go extravagant and become one of those "rich snobs." Instead, I don't see myself changing much other than a load of stress would be taken off my mind. I'd still work (probably part-time) and I'd still finish my master's. I know I would become more active in the community and spend more time with my family.

So here's hoping that I have the winning numbers!

What would you do if you won a million dollars?

The Recession is Over?

Not long ago I read a story about the National Bureau of Economic Research saying the recession has been over for year. Not only did I think this was interesting, I also wondered how they came up with this conclusion. Month-after-month people are getting laid-off and retail sales keep decline. People are afraid to spend money, and jobs are nonexistent.

Well today I found a funny article that said how you would be able to tell when the recession is over:

1. When your boss actually replaces an employee who retires or quits instead of adding their workload to yours.
2. When your laid-off friends start getting jobs with benefits.

3. When you don't have to live with your parents anymore.

4. When it becomes financially feasible to get a divorce again.

5. When a vacation involves airplane travel and you sleep in a hotel bed, not your sister-in-law's house.

6. When Starbucks isn't full on a weekday afternoon.

7. When you no longer have a relationship with coupons.

8. When you can list your house for sale and reasonably expect it to sell within three months at a price higher than what you paid for it.

9. When trying to get a bargain becomes a sport instead of a necessity.

10. When you can afford a new car, your 401k has been restored, you've reset your emergency fund with 6 months of living expenses and the term "99ers" is erased from your memory.

I had to use this picture, but honestly this is me if there is, or I think there is, a spider in the bed. I am super arachnophobic.

Life according to Carrie Bradshaw

I can admit it, I am a Sex and the City addict. I love the show, own every season, and even watch the reruns on TBS. Yep, that's me. I love the whole cast for different reasons and could only imagine a lifestyle like theirs.

Growing up, I always wanted to go to New York. When I finally was given the opportunity to go in college I took it without a second thought. As soon as I got off the plane, I fell in love. The stores, the people, the lights, the museums all had their hands on me and it was so hard to get back on the plane.

I've been back since that very first trip, but I have yet to pick-up my bags and move. Maybe we could chalk it up to being scared of leaving the familiar, but honestly I think it is because of the sky high prices and the suffering job market. Maybe one day I'll just pack up my bags and live the life of a New York City lady, but until then I live vicariously through Carrie and her crew.

One thing I love about Carrie is her dedication to those she loves. I would love to be one of her best friends. Here are some of her rules that all of us should incorporate into our lives:

Rule #1: Why is it that the one time a cute guy talks to you, you have a friend in crisis?

Rule #2: Humiliated best friend always takes precedence over cute guy.

Rule #3: Best friends always think you deserve the best guy even if the best guy barely knows you exist.

Rule #4: Best friends can always be full of surprises.

There you have it, a few rules from the "it" girl Carrie Bradshaw.
