You Said I Could Crash Your Place!

Ok, you said I could crash your place and crash I did! Recognize any of these places? Hee, hee, hee!

Enjoying the free ride!

Crap! I think she is home!

This is some pretty funky art!

This is a cozy place!

Enjoying a nice cold one!

A nice place to chill out!

Really Late on the Blog Challenge!

Well, I am really late on this latest challenge from Ali. I don't even remember what Wednesday's was but I do remember Friday's being about shopping and shopping in SL and what it means to you.

Soooooooooo.....YES! Shopping is important to me in SL. I actually don't know what I would do in SL without shopping or stalking lucky chairs. I don't shop in RL very often because I am pretty much a jeans and tshirt type of person. Fortunately, I can wear that at my RL job too. Whenever we have something formal to go too, it is torture for me! We have a wedding to go to in a few weeks and I am dreading the dressing up and shopping for something to wear. I just feel like a monkey in a suit whenever I have to put a dress on or heels and hose...ugggg....I shudder at the thought of it! LOL!

However, if I could wear clothes in RL like the clothes at my favorite SL store, Zaaras then NO PROBLEM! I would love to dress up in RL. I love the clothes there and I wish I could find an RL designer who designed like she does. So with that said, I posted a pic of me in her store. Unfortunately, I did not have time to get into one of her outfits but I know you see them all on the fashion feeds.

Can I Crash Your House? LOL!

Ok, when I have some time, I will answer Ali's question for Wednesday. May not be until this weekend though.

In the meantime with all my friends (and I hope I can call you friends), moving next door to me I was wondering if you would mind if I stopped by and checked your homes out and took a tour? Even if you are not there? I'm just nosey like that. I can't do it in RL so maybe I can do it in SL. LOL! I have a mystitool so if I see you are there, I will give a shout out first. I don't want to catch you doing anything that I wouldn't want you to catch me doing! LOL!

You are welcome to come drop by my pad...anytime!

Home is Where the Heart Is!

Well, Alicia asked about where our favorite place in SL is but she said it couldn't be our home. Then she said it could! :-) That is a good thing because that is my favorite place in SL. Especially, since my RL home is turning out to be a place that I don't enjoy being at as much anymore.

As you read earlier, I was really wanting to make alot of changes in SL since I am having some issues in RL. So...thanks to Quaintly posting about her land, I went and bought some land next to her. I spent all day yesterday shopping for a home and furniture. Now I just need to work on the landscaping part of it.

I got 230 prims for about $5 USD a month. My plot size is 1008 sq. I kept my home small because I really didn't want anything too big and I didn't want to do the kitchen thing and who needs a bathroom in SL. Some pics are down below:

Some new skin and hair!

Well, I went and picked up a new skin that I really like. It is the Asia from KA skins. I didn't buy the fat pack but I will probably pick up a skin a week to make my collection complete. I also picked up two of the new hairstyles from 69. 69 is becoming one of my favorite places for hair because the textures and colors are beautifully done and the price is sooooo reasonable too! I also picked up one of the LaLa Foo Foo shrugs. Some pics are down below!

Making Changes in SL vs RL

Do you ever feel like making changes in SL because you can't really make changes in your RL life? I'm going through some RL stuff right now that I don't really want to get into on this blog but I really don't know what to do to change the situation.

Or should I say I do know but I'm not sure it is what I want to do because it will hurt a lot of people or in particular one individual a lot! It would also be very embarrassing or humiliating to admit to those around us. I just wish at my age that I would have already learned the lesson to listen to my gut and trust my instincts instead of being talked into something that I really did not want to do.

I guess one way for me to deal with it at the moment is to just start throwing money into SL and make all kind of changes. I feel like changing my SL skin and moving into a new place, etc.

I guess since I can't run away from the problem or myself in RL, I figure if I can run away from myself in SL that it will some how make me feel better or at least occupy my time by going skin, home and furniture shopping.

Whats New With Terri?

Hi there! Well, actually not much new in SL. Just getting on when I can and changing clothes when I can! LOL! I did change the heading on my blog to something different though.

As far as RL goes, some changes there. We have decided to put our son back on ADHD meds. We knew he was diagnosed with it before he came to live with us but his previous foster family took him off of it. He was doing fine without it until about three weeks ago and the shit began to hit the fan at school! He is just showing the typical ADHD signs so we feel it would be best for him to be back on it.

Nothing is rezzing for me in SL right now so I thought I would just put some pics that I took in the latest group gift from Zaara and in my favorite Dutch Touch skin and hair from Cake.

Oh, does anyone know how to get your eyes to look straight ahead when you take pics of yourself? So frustrating!

SL Advice meme

Well, I am going to change these questions a bit to work for me.

Whats the best SL thing you ever did?
Joining the Chknw group. This is the one thing that I did where I got to meet people...really meet people and hang out with them. Also, it introduced me to blogging and I feel like I know my SL friends a little better. Whether it be their SL or RL. I don't have to hang out in SL alone anymore.

What is the worst SL thing you ever did?
I would have to agree with Tymmerie and say when I made folders with outfits in them. That just made my inventory huge!! I had to spend a lot of time going back through them and sorting out the clothes, shoes, etc so that my inventory numbers would drop. What a nightmare!

What didn't anyone tell you that you had to learn on your own?
Ok, this is easy but finding the fashion blogs and the freebie blogs. I learned all about living in SL on a dime by joining groups and doing hunts, etc. I don't do those things as much anymore but I was obsessed at one point. I would wake up at 4am around Christmas to get all the prezzies before I left to work...Yikes!

Apt Pics

Well, since I can't get into SL right now due to a high number of log ins, I figured I would post some apt pics that I have stored in my pics folder. Please forgive my horrible skills in taking pictures. I always love seeing people's homes in RL and in SL so I hope you enjoy!
