Yes, I'm Alive...and Tweeting!


Oh. Em. Gee. What a cold, nasty, almost-intolerable couple of days it has been. The blizzard did indeed arrive and, 6 inches of snow and freezing rain later, we are beginning to thaw out here in Northwest Arkansas.


Ok, first let's count our blessings:

-The power never went out. Which means that this princess still had access to her VH1 reality TV and hair dryer/flat iron during the snow storm. Whew.

-I'm 3 pounds thinner. No lie. I had NOTHING but Lucky Charms and Ramen noodles in my pantry, so I was rationing my food like it was the apocolypse. And yes Mom, I should've gone to the grocery store PRIOR to the storm. Live and learn, ladies. Live and learn.

-Because I had absolutely nothing better to do, I turned into a cleaning fool! My apartment is spotless, ya'll.




Now, let's turn into a hater for a moment and talk about what we didn't like about the blizzard experience:

-I rented Angels and Demons on Pay-Per-View, (the follow-up to the trainwreck that was The DaVinci Code.) Yes, I'm ashamed. Yeah, I paid money for that hot mess. Why did I rent a sequel to a movie that was so awful? Boredom will drive you to do crazy things, I guess.

-I wasn't able to blog, as the internet was at a standstill. Sad face, tear and sniffle.



-If you are eating, skip this: So everyone at my apartment decided to let their dogs do their business right by the stairs, since it was 20 below and no one wanted to walk the additional 10 feet to the designated doggie bathroom area, (wow, run-on sentence.) This was super-great and thoughtful of them, since last night I was carrying my shopping bags up the stairs and stepped in a little present left by my neighbor's Pomeranian. Thanksssssss....



But anywho, I am alive and have discovered that I have a talent for driving on ice and snow. Who knew?

Now, for some cool news.....I'm Tweeting! Thanks to the encouragement of my dear, sweet blog followers, (awww, that's ya'll!), I decided to jump on the Twitter bandwagon. I actually opened a Twitter account about 6 months ago, but just couldn't get into it. However, now that I have so many Tweet-savvy new friends, I'm game to give it another shot!


ID is ablondeambition

Easy enough, right? Let me know if you Tweet and we'll hook up online. That sounds kind of risque, doesn't it? haha.

P.S.- I have MORE fantastic news that will be coming later today on...gasp...Twitter. And I'll throw it on here, too. Hint: LuLu's might be giving A Blonde Ambition followers a leeeeettle discount on purchases this week. Just saying, stay tuned : )

  10. Oh you poor thing for being stuck in the blizzard with only ramen, ha ha! Well at least you shed a few lbs, that always helps. Hope you are staying warm and glad you have twitter - I followed your tweets.

  11. too funny, I've def gotten snowed in before and had nothing to eat but cereal! even though I learned my lesson, I'll still procrastinate my shopping trip next time I'm sure, lol! I didn't care for Angels and Demons either to be honest, I liked both books much better than the movies. I've been noticing that a lot with books made into movies lately...hmm? Happy Monday!

  14. Oooh will definitely find you on twitter! I dont have ridiculous amounts of people on there b/c it's REALLY hard to keep up with if you're not on it in a few hours b/c there are some tweeting fools out there (on some days, I include myself in that mess). I followed Glamour and they were tweeting every freaking minute. I couldnt handle it... fashion overload.. haha! (if that;'s even possible). Glad you didnt lose power either, girl! I was eating pb and j's like you were eating lucky charms.. hilarity! This winter is bananas! Glad you stayed warm and safe! XOXO!

  19. i thought that was so funny when i read in the paper about the very little snow you guys got and it was declared a state of emergency!!! i guess i am just used to the snow.. i live in the mountains of canada and have been driving in the worst conditions since ive had my permit! stay warm and enjoy the snow while it lasts! it may be cold but it is lovely and quite a blessing!
