Wiggity Wiggity Whack.

I have no reason why I put that as my post title. For some reason I have that song "Jump" by Kris Kross (holla early 90s!) in my head. Sad fucking commentary there.

But let's update you on some things that I feel like I left hanging. Before I forget?

Mr. Furnace works... but he isn't happy about it. He works like 50% of the time, so I'm compensating by using space heaters. It's ok. This morning I woke up and could see my breath which kind of reminds me of camping. Except we're inside. So it's kind of like being homeless in a fancy cardboard box? But I talked to a few people who know about furnaces and they all think it's the flame sensor so we're going to bite the bullet and buy that which is like a "couple hundred dollars" from what I've been told. We'll find out when Matt calls around tomorrow.

But we got our state and federal tax refunds today... so that's pretty much all reserved for house stuff and paying off our vet bill for Lenny. Good bye tax refund--- you made my account not so sad for like a few hours. So after I pay the vet bill tomorrow our account will be back to lovely $5 balance we were at today. So yeah. But at least that's paid off. And I'm trying to make that be my positive spin on it.

I decided I'm throwing myself a 29th birthday party in March. A few people said it's sad to throw myself a party but since nobody wants to coordinate it and I want a party- it's on me. And I don't care- it's not like it's that much work. So tentatively the plans are set for March 12 and it's dinner out, sex toy party at my house, maybe hitting up some bars later. Good times will be had and pictures will be shared. ;) But that means I need to get my ass moving on invitations and stuff. Oh.. and goodie bags.

But just like last year... I'm going to do a giveaway around my birthday... another round of "Sara's Favorite Things" type giveaway. Details will come soon. But in the meantime... feel free to get me a birthday card. HA! :)

I was wondering how it is that I have almost 500 followers but not a lot of commenters? Is that weird? I don't know. I just realized that. But (hey hey hello newbies!)

I started looking for outfits and stuff for our boudoir photo shoot in August and holy fucking shit... there is NOTHING really made for girls with a pouch. I though I'd go the route of a corset.. but all of the ones I liked stop before my pouch area begins. (FYI: my pouch area? Is under my belly button..) Does anyone have suggestions? Ideas? Anything?? I can suck it in with the best of them but I don't know I can do it for that long without one of my lungs exploding. And I don't know about you but "sexy" and "exploding lung" doesn't really go together.

OH! Guess what? I'm going to be a grown up and buy some snow pants maybe this weekend. MAYBE. Matt says he'd like to go skiing and since I've never done it, and it's on my 30/30 list I should go. I should. I'm scared of falling on my butt and people skiing on my head. And Matt says he can't wait to see me walk in the boots. What is he talking about? Should I be worried? Am I going to bust an ankle?? AND he said I have to go on the little kid hill. What kind of fucking SHAME is that? Ugh. It's going to be bad and I hate everything about the outdoors and especially everything about winter. But I have committed to trying it once.

Oh. And there are a few things that might not happen on my list. Like learning piano. Dudes, I'm not going to be able to get a piano. What with my financial woes of 2011 *SO FAR* and all. So that got me to thinking... I should have a back up list. Like, if I can't do that... what can I do as an alternative? Do you have ideas? Are there things you'd like to see me try, and most likely miserably fail, and make a huge ass out of myself? Comment and let me know. I'm open.

I have two questions for Dear Sara this week and they both pertain to sex related things... so ideally, I'd like to get a few more. Let's make it out theme this week, huh? Email me your sex related questions to: sarastrand9438(at)hotmail(dot)com. Or you can FB message me too. :)

Ok. So I think those are my updates. Oh- and yes, my abs hurt today. And I wrote the chocolate moonpie I ate in the "dairy" column. Because chocolate = dairy. Wrong? I don't think so.

What to wear for the shoot ---Recline, drape yourself in black satin, leaving only hip/legs and back or breasts on display,...
30-30 (bucket?) list. I think you should try to do what's on the list, but I'd like to see you begin another list of things you HAVE accomplished. When the one list gets you down, go read the other one.

The mack dad and the daddy mack are all up in my brain. Thanks ALOT, Sara, you ass!
I'll try to think of something for ask Sara but no promises.

Don't feel bad about your birthday party. I have to throw myself one every damn year. I tried to get one going last year and 3 people showed up. I said I would kill myself if only 2 showed up, so I guess that is good right.

whoa how weird, I've had 90's songs in my head lately.

second- you just told people you were having a party. otherwise I would've tried to organize something :) and just for that- I might plan a surprise. but not that day. I'll think of something.

Did you check out Eden Fantasies for a corset? I think I saw a section for clothing type items.

ok and I have a question for you- like a legit one that I'm not making up this time. I will email you a Dear Sara one.

Amen. Comments are like blogger crack. You can never get enough.

Jandy xx said...

i just fell in love with you all over again because of that blog title

The Mrs. said...

ohhh I love the draped satin idea! ahhhh, that would be HOT LAVA!

also, i never get a birthday party either...when i turned 25 i thought for sure there was a surprise coming. nope. i've given my mom, dad, and husband surprise parties! maybe at 30 i'll get mine ;) i so wish i could come to your birthday party! i love sex toy parties and i can't think of a more appropriate way to meet you.

Krysten @ Why Girls Are Weird said...

Okay like I said, we need to go shopping for stuff! Because I know that even if I lose weight I will have a stomach because even when I was 120 lbs. back in the day I had a stomach. So I need that shit covered.

And it is not lame to throw yourself a birthday. I do pretty much every year. Although I'd love for someone to throw me a surprise party one day. But I'm such a control freak that that will probably never happen.

Anyway. I'm emailing you, but probably tomorrow because I'm sleepy.

Have you thought about a babydoll style?

kimberrleigh said...

I will totally send you a birthday card and other fun birthday gifts, just send on over your address to me. You will be amazed at how awesome my gifts are. No seriously, I do the most legit birthday gifts.

And I'm gonna tag up with the workout next Monday, since this week has been shot to hell. And Saturday we're going to start trying on bridesmaid dresses. Therefore after I figure out generally what style I like/want... I'll begin my workouts.

I made serious bank last year (for being a college student) and chances are my refund will be like $12 since my local tax shit is ridic and I have to pay their crap.

Nicki said...

I love that you're throwing yourself a birthday party! Only YOU know what you really want anyway, right? That way you can control the guest list, the activities, and the MENU...I love that you're giving yourself a splurge day.

Some corsets (lace-up, in particular) are longer and have a v-shape at the bottom that will cover you well, but they're pretty goddamn pricey if you get a good one. I think you'd have to go to a specialty vendor =(

Organic Meatbag said...

wow, when did this blog turn into a hard core porn site?! Somebody's getting a little bold!

justme5686 said...

Check out Fredericks of Hollywood for corsets. They have great sales and the corsets come down low.

SY said...

glad to see that at least you're in a place to take of your furnace issue but it sucks to use all the refund for things you need.

and its ok to throw your own party.. sometimes if you want something done right you have to do it yourself

I tried skiing once and it was a freaking nightmare. Never again.

YEAH for getting Lenny's bill paid off. Those fuckers. They should have cut you some slack.

500 followers is freaking awesome. I've been stuck on 59 for like 6 months.
