Sisterhood of the Born To Fit Jeans

I don't know if you have noticed, but lately there has been a rash of "Gap Born to Fit Parties" popping up everywhere. Not that I am complaining or anything. Ok ok actually I complained a little, because I heard that they gave you free jeans and darn it I like free stuff and there was not a Gap party anywhere within site. That was until the lovely Kristin invited me to hers. These "Born to Fit" parties are brought to the Internet by the same lovely ladies at Brand About Town that supplied my Nintendo Party (still not over how cool that was). Kristin also said that if I had some friends that would like to come and get free jeans, they were welcome to do I brought some, Erin and Carrie in fact.
Here I am the amazing hostess Kristin! This girl just got back from swimming in the Arctic Ocean, yes you read that right, and then came home to host this party like it was no big thing. I swear, she can do it all.
There were yummy snacks and cookies and all sorts of things I should have eaten after trying on jeans, details details.
And then there were the jeans. Oh my. Honestly, I approached the jeans with much trepidation. Jeans shopping is more hellacious for me than bathing suit shopping, now that is saying a lot. After a day of shopping for jeans I usually feel very angry at the fact that I am not taller, skinnier, and unable to fit in any of the 500 pairs of jeans that I tried on.

So I wiggled my way into my first pair of jeans (everyone has a funny little wiggle that they do when they put on jeans right?...right?). And with wide eyed amazement I realized they fit, just like that, it's like they were BORN TO FIT! (So that's why they named them that!) I looked at everyone and said, "These are magic pants! They are like the sisterhood of traveling pants!" And at first everyone just kinda nodded at that Sassy girl that doesn't get out much, but as soon as they put them on too they understood the magic. Let me tell you this, there are very few things in this life that are as great as than getting free jeans, that fit well, on the first try.

And once more, here are my lovely friends thanking their lucky stars that their friend is so obsessed with the Internet.

Kristin, thank you for inviting us to your great party!

Abazias Diamonds

The Internet has brought so many things we never imagined to our doorstep. You can order food, clothing, books, kitchen appliances, and now DIAMONDS!

Yes, diamonds.

I was contacted by to share this amazing fact with you guys. Now I know what you are thinking, diamonds from a website...I don't know about that.
It's one thing to buy a used book online and a whole other to buy a diamond online.And at first I was skeptical too. That was until I explored the diamond mine that is their website.Their sidebar boasts that they have been featured in magazines such as "Lucky", "Maxim", and "Modern Bride" to name a few. One of my favorite parts of the website is that you can design your engagement ring, which I may be guilty of spending a fair amount of time on (cushion princess cushion cut...with a gold how about me I was on there for a while.). And if you don't know your diamonds from a rock on the ground they have a great section to educate the diamond novice.

And the best part? If you are in need of assistance or a hand to hold as you buy your diamonds, get this, you can call their toll free number and speak to a person...a real live person! So when you are lucky enough to be giving or receiving diamonds and don't want to deal with the stress of over the counter sales people, you can buy your diamonds from your own home at!
