Thank You…

These past couple of days have been really hard on me but the support of the blog community has been incredible! From Kalin offering to send me “green bags” to Kristina from Stonyfield emailing me to replace my Oikos bags that were stolen to Amanda listening to me whine about my car…BTW mañana is Amanda’s and Andy’s first 5K, please go to their site and wish them luck! Thank you to EVERYONE who has contacted me…you guys are so amazing and supportive.

The day that Goldie was stolen, I received a package in the mail but I was not in the best frame of mind to open it. I had an idea of what it was since I placed an order about a week ago from Etsy. This morning I decided to finally take a peek.


First I opened the complimentary magnet…too cute!


and then I opened the box…and fell in love immediately! 


It is a Sterling Silver Blogger Necklace from JustJaynes page on Etsy!

Close up on my neck…



Ayer I woke up crying and just felt empty…the best way to describe the feeling is almost like going through a breakup. As the day progressed I tried to feel better. I went to the vet to get Koko’s medicine and then went to the Precinct to get some paper that I needed to take to DMV to prove that my car was stolen. While I was walking home, I called my sister and met her at the Diner. After we finished eating, we started to walk home and passed by Prohibition Tattoo Parlor. Most of you know that I have been dying to get a new tattoo and I knew this would make me feel a little better. I went inside and asked them how much it would be to get “Namaste” on my wrist. The price was fairly reasonable so I ran home got some cash and ran back to get it done.

Qing did my Tattoo and he was sooooo nice and patient with me.
