I Love You Kiki Girl

Today I lost my best friend. My sweet little Kiki girl . . . she turned 14 in January and has been fighting arthritis in her back legs. Her bad days were out-numbering her good days and this weekend she got very sick. This morning I had to make the very painful decision to let her go. It was the hardest decision I've ever had to make. I adopted Kiki when she was just a few months old and she has been with me through alot of crap in my life and has always loved me unconditionally. I love you Kiki girl and I miss you.

Motto No. 2

Put your big girl panties on and deal with it!! I love this apron, not only for the motto, but you've got to love the tulle edging and the pictures of the panties on it!!

A Perfect Saturday

Got my hair cut and highlighted, a FREE manicure and pedicure, Starbucks . . . a perfect Saturday!! Whew, I'm exhausted :-)

Hope your Saturday was just as perfect!

Uh, I'm miserable . . .

I met two girlfriends for dinner tonight and I ate entirely too much - I'm miserable right now!!! The restaurant is called Comfort and serves true Southern comfort food . . . meatloaf, pork chops, mac & cheese, grits, mashed potatoes . . you get the picture. The diet went right out the window tonight!! Why do I do this to myself!!!!
Thank you Southern Savvy for answering my blog question - how easy is that?!!!!!! I would have never been able to figure that one out on my own.

It's a bit of a blah Wednesday here in Richmond . . . . a mixture of snow and sleet - where the freak is Spring?!!!!!!

Anyone watch Idol last night? Why do they have to drag out the show for 2 hours?!! Geesh! And I'm a bit bummed that last night was the final episode for The Housewives of OC, but bring it on New York wives! I only caught half of the first episode of the NY show . . . I would never want to get up this morning if I had stayed up and watched the whole thing. Looks like it is going to be a good season! Is it bad that I enjoy watching such drama?!!!!!

My First Tag!!

I received my very first tag - woo hoo! Thank you Southern Savvy!!! Now, here's what you do ~

1. Go to your pics, choose the 6th folder and the 6th picture
2. Tell who and what
3. Pick 6 people to do the same.

This is my good friend Donna who volunteered to be our bartender at our wedding. Everyone involved in our wedding, from Karl who married us, to Donna our bartender, Elizabeth our photograph and Stan our caterer = all were friends who made our day even extra special and I love them all for it!! It was both mine and Hubby's second marriage so we wanted more of a party atmosphere then the traditional route, which we both had already done. We got married in my friend's backyard, white lights and paper lanterns hanging from the trees, surrounded by friends and family and there was absolutely no stress because I wasn't worried about having the "perfect" wedding - yet it turned out to be perfect!

I tag:
1. More Wine Please
2. Another Online Mom
3. Carolina Girl
4. Lipstick at the Mailbox
5. Tickled Pink and Green
6. Jillian, Inc.

Happy Valentine's Day!!

This joke was too funny not to share -

The Black Bra

I had lunch with 2 of my unmarried friends. One is engaged, one is a mistress, and of course I have been married for 20+ years. We were chatting about our relationships and decided to amaze our men by wearing a black leather bra, stiletto heels and a mask over our eyes. We agreed to meet in a few days to exchange notes. Here's how it all went.

My engaged friend:
The other night my boyfriend came over and found me with a black leather bodice, tall stilettos and a mask. He saw me and said, 'You are the woman of my dreams. I love you.' Then we made love all night long.

The mistress:
Me too! The other night I met my lover at his office and I was wearing the leather bodice, heels and mask over my eyes and a raincoat. When I opened the raincoat he didn't say a word, but we
had wild sex all night.

Then I had to share my story:
When my husband came home I was wearing the leather bodice, black stockings, stilettos and a mask over my eyes. As soon as he came in the door and saw me he said, "What's for dinner, Batman?"

Out of the mouths of babes . . .

Yesterday at work, a co-worker's son called while he was on his way to church to make his first confession. The co-worker says, "Well son, when I see you next you will be sinless." The son says, "Oh no Dad, I will have sinned by the time you get home." You gotta love it!

I'm So Not Ready

This is my baby . . . she's 12 years old and this was the night she was going to a friend's 13th birthday party - which I might add was nicer than ANY party I'd ever been too!! The theme was Paris and the colors were hot pink and black.

I'm not ready for her to grow up. I'm not ready for her to look like this!! She has a boyfriend that she met at her marital arts class. They don't go to the same middle school so they only get to see each other a couple of times during the week. They've had one movie date and her dad and his mom chaperoned. I teased her about the bf pulling the old yawn move to get his arm around her, but he didn't try. Good thing :-) I am so blessed to have her as my daughter. She's a great kid, As and Bs and in honors English, Science and Social Studies. I can't believe in just 5 years she'll be heading to college. Ugh, that's depressing. I need a drink now.

Wanted: Yellow House with Red Door

The mornings I take the girls to the bus stop, I pass the cutest house. It is painted a really pretty yellow with a shiny red door, has a white front porch and on the front porch is white wicker furniture. In the Spring there are ferns hanging on the porch. Oh how I want that house!!! I can just picture myself sitting on the wicker love seat, sipping some sweet ice tea (or mojito - it's 5:00 somewhere, right??), reading a good beach read, and watching the kids play. I heart that yellow house.

Boy Oh Boy Oh Boy

2009 is not starting off the way I wanted it to. My car was hit twice in one week. An older man backed into my car while it was parked in the parking garage at work. Thank God he waited so I was able to get his name, insurance, etc. That was on a Wednesday. Then on Friday I was rear-ended a block from work. I finally got my car back yesterday after having a rental car for a week. Ugh!! I shouldn't even be complaining about my little inconviences, because that is nothing compared to what a friend of mine is going through. A week ago Friday, her 40 year old husband died from a massive heart attack. They had spent Friday together and she left the house to go pick up the kids from daycare. When she and the kids got home, they found him in the kitchen. She did everything she could to revive him but it was too late. He leaves a 2 year old daughter and 4 year old son. It is just so horribly sad. Needless to say, I am glad that January is done and over with.
