A day at work with Shannon

Starting out the day

Doing math

So yeah….I’m one of those people who sticks out their tongue while they concentrate..shush

My my employees math doesn’t total up

I give up…I’m just going to guess and hope I’m right

On hold with a customer for 18 minutes

This is affectionatly known as the “dork smile” this happens when I get a lunch break, or all of the paper work turned in for the day is right……

Inner monologue

I want cookies

You can't have cookies, you are losing weight and eating so well


No no no Shannon

Fine. Let's eat some healthy three bean vegetarian soup

That was good but it wasn't cookies

Here have some gum

Gum doesn't taste like cookies

Okay fine you can have two cookies you cow

Well those were good but now I want five cookies, some guacamole and three glasses of honey whiskey

I told you not to eat the cookies it only leads to bad thoughts

Have a diet Pepsi and shut up Shannon

That would be much better with whiskey


You got your two cookies shut up about it

I've only eaten once today, I'm still full but everyone is being grumpy so I want to eat ALL THE THINGS

Your jeans are baggy remember




Keeping warm

It's been really cold here in Reno. I don't like the cold.  But my biggest complaint is that when there is snow everywhere my beloved shoes get left in the closet.  This makes me sad.  Let's be honest, shoes like this just cannot stay in the closet all winter long without getting their feelings hurt. 

This morning when I woke up, I went into my closet and I swear the shoes were frowning at me.  I decided I had to wear them but I had no idea how I could wear them when it was this cold out.  I don't wear nylons because they are annoying. 

That is when I remembered that I ordered this little beauty from Eden Fantasys:

(link takes you to this specific item)

 (That is exactly how it looks on me too hahahhahahah)

Anyway I realized that I had those little stocking things and they were sheer enough to wear with a black dress but not full on nylons so I wouldn't have to get annoyed at having them pulled all the way up under my boobs all day.  I rummaged around and located everything.  I love the whole getup.  I think I like the panties more because they are full panties and not a G-string, and they have that cute ruching in them.  I ordered all of this from edenfantasys.com and the best part is all of it comes in sizes small up to 2XL which meant that they had thigh highs in my size.  See, click here, there is a whole variety of them or women with real live curves!  I had one hell of a little getup in my possession.  I slipped it all on right as my husband walked in…and y'all suddenly it didn't even feel cold anymore. 

Sooo..just for fun I sent him this little diddy while I was at work:

Yeah, he can't wait to come home tonight.  

I'm so glad I ordered all of this because after eleven years there has to be some way to keep things fun right? Not to mention my poor shoes are now proudly out in the open showing off again which really is the best part of the whole story. I've never worn this sort of thing before.  I've always only worn nylons or just went without and shown my pasty white legs to the world.  But this…this is fun. My dress goes beneath the knee so it's super conservative which makes it extra awesome knowing what is hiding underneath.  it's my own little secret.  I highly recommend running out and purchasing some sexy undergarments to wear this winter…it really is a whole new way to keep warm.

Getting rid of it all again.

A week ago I looked like this.  My hair was out of control long.  It was pretty and if I took the time to do it, it looked very nice.  But I never took the time which meant 80% of the week was spent with my hair pulled up into a messy bun giving me a headache.  After much hemming an hawwing I bit the bullet and chopped it all off.

Y'all I am in love.  I am so so happy I did it.  Look how cute I am. 

I fell younger. I don't have headaches anymore and look, when I get out of the shower and do nothing with it, it just dries cute. 

I wasn't able to donate it this time because we had bleached it to get rid of the pink and no one accepts bleached hair anymore.  We did hide a small amount of purple in it, but it washed out so I'm going to go find more purple and put it in there myself because the stuff I buy doesn't leave (I won't be bleaching the purple in this time just putting it over the dark).

For a bonus photo this is what I do when I am at work and I am stuck on hold and can't get to the bathroom to floss.  I turn on Photobooth on my computer and floss with my webcam.  You had no idea just how nerdy I was didja?

Ooh oooh.  I also got new glasses.  Did you notice? Probably not.  But I think they are fantastic.  I went to the eye doctor and asked them for "sexy librarian" glasses and they didn't know what to do.  The whole office is a whole bunch of old people and none of them found my request as funny as me.  After trying on 700 pairs of glasses I settled on the ones above.  They aren't exactly sexy librarian but they are far better then the old ones. What do you think?  Approve or not?
