South Carolina "Affairs"

SC First Lady Jenny Sanford's book will be released soon! I hate to admit that I am bursting with excitement to read her story.

The Facebook. Can't live with it...can't live without it.

Ahh, the joys of Facebook. I remember the glorious day that Georgia Southern gained access to the wonderous 'book. What a great day! Facebook has made such an evolution. Does anyone remember when the status update had a drop-down menu? You could select "at work," "in class" and a few other choices. Life was so much more simple back in those days.

Status updates. Love them or hate them, it seems that everyone on Facebook enjoys updating their virtual friends on what's going on in their worlds. (Guilty! Especially if I have a glass of wine or 2!) It is the purpose of Facebook in the first place, but sometimes status updates do tend to get a little out of hand. There are a few types which generally make me want to hit the roof:

1) The whiny/complaining/pity party/"my life sucks" update. Save it for your therapist. And while you're there, go ahead and pick up an RX for LEXAPRO.

2) The "repost this if you're not ashamed" update. I love my mom, my husband, Jesus, the puppy that I don't yet have and lots of other things. I don't need to repost CRAP to prove anything.

3) The "TMI" update. As in, "too much information." Grooming habits, personal hygeine, bodily functions, your sex's all TOO MUCH. Think before you type.

Enjoy the Facebook, friends. Please try to keep it classy.

J Bunn

Friday, January 29, 2010


I have finally entered the blogosphere! At the urging of my darling husband and a few friends, I have broken down... Unfortunately, "I'm Just Sayin'" was already taken, so I chose "Fun with JBunn" instead. Seriously, how many J Bunns can there be? At least it's orginal, right?

I would imagine that most people reading this already know me (in some form or fashion)...if you do not, here is a glimpse into my crazy, wonderful, somewhat-disorganized-but-planned-down-to-every-moment life.

1) I am the eldest child in my family. I have one younger brother. I feel that being the oldest defines me in SO MANY WAYS. (Hence the "planned down to every minute" part of my life).

2) I am married to a fella who is the oldest of three. We are both complete control freaks. Allen and I learn every single day :)

3) When I was young, I had three huge aspirations:
#1--Become a figure skater, and dance/skate my way to fame to this song by Alahnna Myles.
#2--Become a University of Tennesse majorette. I twirled batons from age 7 until my senior year of high school. In case you don't know, UT majorettes are the best of the best. My Papaw (grandfather for any Yankees in the building) went to Tennessee. Nope, I didn't attend UT, but I DO bleed orange.
#3--Marry Jordan Knight of New Kids on the Block fame.

Needless to say, none of those things happened. A couple of really cool things did, though! In 2006, I received a shiny, new degree from Georgia Southern University. In 2007, I moved to Spartanburg, SC and landed an amazing job at United Way of the Piedmont. To be honest, I never intended to enter the "glitz and glam" (HA!) world of fundraising, or "resource development"; it found me. In March 2009, I married Allen.

As Joe Walsh said, "Life's been good to me so far..."

Maybe in the next blog I'll write about the time my father-in-law and I dialed Joe Walsh's cell and hung up on him ;)
