For those not in MN

Saturday, December 11, 2010

Just a little flavor, right off of the Startribune.com weather blog

No travel advised in the Twin Cities
Roads are so bad in the metro area that the Minnesota Department of Transportation is advising no travel. Roads are snow packed and slippery, and high winds are creating difficult driving conditions.

The department also closed Hwy.50 between Hwy. 52 and County Road 20 in Dakota County because the road became impassable.

MnDot will continue to to work to clear metro area freeways throughout the evening.



As of 4:29pm
There have been 129 crashes statewide since midnight with 15 of those resulting in injuries. Of the 129, 96 have occurred in the metro area with nine resulting in injuries, said Lt. Eric Roeske.

A total of 561 vehicles have slid off the road or spun out on roadways statewide, with 383 of those in the metro area.

Zero, that's the number of fatalities, which is good news.

    Ugh I had to work today. Most of the nurses here are planning on spending the night here at the hospital. :{ I think if I can, I will try to drive home.
The weather guy said you would have to be a moron to drive in this... so I guess that makes me a moron.

Shopping fool and free SP bootcamp challenge

Thursday, December 09, 2010

Lane Bryant had 50% off all tops the other night.. I racked up a large bill on that one! Hopefully I will like them when they arrive. I had purchased the Bowtie Bustier at full price the day before at the store.. Able to buy online for 50% off! It's pretty cute www.lanebryant.com/plus-size-sweater

I also bought this cowl neck shirt to wear with jeans or leggings on Saturday night. BFF's cousin turns 21 and we are going to a local bar with a live band and dancing. I tend to get hot so I know the t-shirt like material will be fine!

P.P.S Today's Lane Bryant deal is $30 off any $60 purchase ( free shipping to store, or $7 to your door)




I start my new job on Monday. None of my online shopping will have arrived by then. AHHHHHHH. I am purchasing a fruit basket for my friend that helped get me the job. I should start calling her my new boss as she is technically my supervisor now. I'm still nervous about my lack of knowledge with Excel since I will be constantly needing those skills.

I joined the Biggest Loser Challenge online boot camp. It'll start 1/5/11
The Bootcamp challenge is 12 weeks of accountability, support, weekly weigh-ins and other stuff. I thought perhaps the Mocha Maniacs, Onyx Outlaws or Rose Ranger Regiment might be the best one for me? I'll be grateful for whatever I get!

    Cute tops!!
Congratulations on the job! Don't worry about excel. You'll get better the more you use it.
As far as names go, I like the Mocha Maniacs. But I know you don't get to choose. Good luck!!

    Congrats on the new job, hope it works well for you, I'm sure you will do fine. Every job is a bit apprehensive when you start, new co-workers, new boo( but you know her) so things will be fine after a few days of learning the ropes. Sounds like you have ordered some nice new tops ---hope you they -'re all to your liking when they arrive. Have fun Saturday night at the birthday celebration.

Kohl's 20% off entire order plus free shipping (no minimum $ amount)

Saturday, December 04, 2010

Just bought more stuff to try on.. Hoping to find a few good pieces for ?work? Just waiting on drug test/references/background check for the green light to begin new job on 12/13.
Wish that I had more vacation time before work (possibly) starts... but I'll get 8 holiday days off per year and 18 other days off (PTO= sick+vacation time rolled into one). So that's not horrible.



Kohlís couponcode for free shipping, FREECCDEC,
(No code needed for free shipping if the order is over $50. You'll automatically receive free shipping then)

plus a second code, NEXTORDER20 takes 20% off the entire order.

    I guess I'll be checking out the Kohls website ;-)
Have fun trying the stuff on. How exciting buying new clothes for work. I sure you'll pass your drug test/references and background check no problem. At least you get to enjoy a week off before you start (?). The time off amount seems pretty reasonable. Do you get more after you've worked there for over a year?
