We certainly are!!! Monday was a day of running around shopping and a bit of chilling. On our way out we saw a REAL LIVE alligator. Now I know that sounds silly but usually in Florida you only get to see them in a commercial setting, but this one was in a lake near Amandas house...so I had to get a piccy, sorry its not the best quality but there were apparently 3 in there and I couldn't see the other two!!!!
We then moved on to a couple of shopping malls and I got THE MOST GORGEOUS Kenneth Cole handbag at an absolutely knock down price Yay :) !!! We then had one of THE MOST relaxing pedicures I've EVER had they said it would be 35 mins and two hours later we walk out of there completely relaxed....ahhhh
We had dinner in the LoneStar Steak House that evening and had very nice YOUNG man serving us, and for some reason he started to tell us that he was part black italian (even though he was white American)!!! he knew this he said as he had an extra muscle in his thigh....allegedly!!! Now you've got to picture this .... there's me and Amanda at the table with Rosina (who we now call Cortina) who is a gorgeous lady in her 60's and for some reason he asked us if we knew his age....he looks across at me and I say 23, he looks across at Amanda and she says 21 then he looks over at Cortina and she replies "Lover-ly" in a long Suffolk drawl, we cracked up, the poor young man didn't have a clue....bless him. Anyhoos we never did feel his extra thigh muscle.
Tuesday starts at 4.30am, up showered, dressed etc, as we have class starting at 7am. In line we meet Rosemary Merry (Amanda knew her anyway) and she sits next to us in class AND well all I can say is WHAT A LOVELY LADY!!!!
The class was OK a bit of a free for all!!! and now it's 9'0 clock and the show is OPEN...gone are the days when there were crowds trying to get in and whoop de woos in the hallways but hey ho it means more room to walk around and longer to spend with the companies....and YES I've ordered some gorgeous stash and it's not going to be too long in the coming .... Don't worry ladies you'll be able to stroke very soon...
You know you've really made it when you're standing in the dinner queue and Donna Downey comes up and hugs you AND she remembered my name...how about that...what with QVC fame and now Donna fame...it's ALL getting a bit too much, LOL!! Also bumped into Becks AND Yes she was wearing heels!!!. The show closes at 5pm so we "nip" out to have pizza before going back to our next class at 7pm...This one was with My Little Shoebox...I've known and supported Helen Chu from the beginning, in fact from the very first time she literally dragged me into her booth and told me to "look at all my lovely stuff" and she just gets better and better her new lines this time are stunning and YES we're getting them ALL (claps hands)!!
We finally get home at around 9.30pm and yes we're ALL BLOODY KNACKERED!!!
I'll let you know how today goes.
