I took this photo when we were out on the lake a couple weeks ago. So soothing :)
Anyway, first...it's my 200th post on this blog! Yippie skippie! Time to celebrate! So, I'm doing a "sort-of" giveaway for my blog readers. Most of you know I have a business called "The Collegiate Couture." We're still working on getting additional designers and items up, but we've got a nice selection already. Dresses are taking longer than I had hoped for but we're working on getting them up in the next few weeks. Just in time for the holidays and the end of the season! So, I've decided to offer a special discount code for anyone wanting to purchase something from the website.
Just enter code EATPRAY at checkout to save $5 off a $15 purchase :)
You can go to http://www.thecollegiatecouture.com to check everything out.
In my personal world, I feel like there is a battle raging. It's really sucky. I feel very at peace, though restless. Calm, but anxious. Relieved, but sad. There's certainly a mix of emotions running through me with everything going on. I have been seeing a great therapist here for the past few weeks and I see a psychologist tomorrow. The reason for that being that my therapist feels I have PTSD, something I blogged about before. I know for sure in order to get through the rest of this I'm going to need some sort of anti-anxiety drug. The panic attacks, though few and far between, are very scary. I really have only had one, but it wasn't fun. Each day that goes by is one day closer to the end of this horrific situation but until then, another "unpredictable day" lies ahead.
I just wrapped up a two weekend promotion here which will def. help my pocket book. It was exhausting, though not terrible. I think I've decided to stay where I'm at as rent here is much cheaper than where I'm looking at making a permanent home. I think it's the most wise decision I can make financially.
In super exciting news, I stumbled upon an AMAZINGLY AWESOME one of a kind cruise setting sail next year. They have it once a year and I don't feel comfortable sharing which cruise it is, but I CANNOT WAIT! I thought it might be a long shot, but I'd ask my dad if he wouldn't mind paying for SOME of it as my Christmas/Birthday present since it's not until next year. So, with the money he's putting towards it and the money my grandma gives me each year for Christmas, it will be practically paid for. I found a girl friend to go with me and she's the perfect person to really live it up and enjoy it with. I can't wait! I've never been on a cruise and to be able to go, shake off this divorce, celebrate my singleness, and my new life...it will be unreal.
