*happy dance!*
Another Mamarazzi favorite things swap!
love 'em - love 'em - love 'em!!!
Fine...maybe I just love forcing myself on people
or maybe I just love to share what I love...
or maybe I just love giving gifts...
whatever my intentions or motives are...
I am a very happy camper to be involved again!
Check out HolleeAnn's fun blog - almost makes me want to have a kid...
Apparently they cook for you! *laughs*

The Fool

The card for today:
The Fool: The Fool desires to achieve great things in life, but does not always anticipate the hard work required. Full of curiosity and searching for answers, the Fool symbolizes a new beginning and endless optimism. He must be careful in the decisions he makes, as his lack of experience is often a hindrance. While others may avoid taking on insurmountable odds, The Fool will attempt to accomplish near impossible goals with almost reckless abandon.
I am often called a fool for my desires...
and I seriously hate hard work!
Although -
if hard work is what it takes to get the final outcome I desire...
I am all for it!
I like my endless optimism -
although my bi-bolar moments lead me down that dark negative path quite often...
I do have some decisions that need to be made...
Oh the pain of being careful!
***on a side note***
I ask a favor from all my healing energy friends....
A very good friend, Tina
(I watched her grow into the most beautiful young woman and mother)
has a friend who is in intensive care with the swine flu.
Shannon can use all the healing energies we can send her way!

Live, Love, Laugh

First thing - I must tell you about the new Green Tea Liquer I found!
Makes the most yummy green tea martini's and *drum roll please*
the mostest delicious yogurt green tea smoothies!
Second thing - how's this for a last minute house warming gift?
I believe it's the perfect house warming gift - it sure would make vacuuming,
dishes and laundry better for me!
Shane, being a guy, just wanted to take the bottle...
I may not be a "domenstic diva"...
but I think this is MUCH better then just a bottle!
(ahhh - guys - gotta luv'em!)
What a beautiful day for a party - I am pretty psyched!
Life is a sweet party!
Have a fantastic weekend!

Lauren Nicole's cool stuffs!
Lauren has another fabulous give away - run, go, quickly - enter!!! :) My newest addiction are these Vera Bradley bags and assessories! Ry hates them...and if you know any gay men - they voice their opinions when they hate things! But if I win - I am so writing sticky notes and posting them all over his room!

My peeps...

I always say I lead a charmed life...
fantastic family, great health, full belly, roof over my head,
great job that I love (even on the bad days!)
and my fabulous friends!
This picture just shows the fun we have as a disfuntional faux family!
If I didn't know better I would be jealous of Roxy!
Last night we all went out to see Nina Flowers.
For those who are not aware - she is an awesome drag queen...
OMG is she beautiful!
These woman are amazing with their make-up and fashion, their presence!
Check Nina Flowers out:
(keep in mind that the cover picture doesn't compare to the rest of the video makeup!)

Let me know what you think . . .

Airport ramblings . . .

*growls* Who ever heard of an airport without a bar?!? I would kill for a dirty martini right now! *laughs* sitting in an airport waiting for my redeye to Newark , NJ - then I sit for an hour and wait to fly into Hartford... then it will be sleepytime for this spent diva! There is a family waiting near me with 2 very young children - please, for the love of all things good and evil - have them sit far far from this tired cranky diva!!! It's going to be a loooooooong 6 hours if I dont get a drink! Shouldn't these children be somewhere coveting their little marshmallow peeps and jelly beans? Or even biting the ears off some poor defenseless hollow chocolate bunnies???
Shane says it's because I called Jesus the ultimate zombie! *laughs*
I can't wait to get home - back to my own bed and my boys!
Had a fantastic time in CA and Mexico (Thanks mom!) but it it is time to go home!

Just my luck . . .

Hooray - San Diego is finally getting lots of rain!
(1/10th of an inch - the strange folks here call that a lot!)
But it's still really cloudy and grey *sigh*
Yea great - fantastic that it is on my vacation?!?!
What happened to "sunny" California?!?
Something else that is amusing (or not)...
...It's 65 degrees outside and mom has the heat on!
Ah well, at least it was sunny and beautiful in Catalina and Mexico when we were there!
Can't share any pictures just yet - mom's computer is from the 70's !
I am lucky to even be able to get online!
I have no idea how my family can stand slow, laggy, old computers...
It makes me crazy to have to wait longer then 5 seconds for a page or a blog to load!
I am starting to miss the boys...and my DVR - can you imagin?
Hope everyone is enjoying their Friday - we are heading out for some authentic Mexican food *yum!*

Are you ready?!

...for summer?
I am soooooo ready!
I will miss my snow (I call it mine since it seems everyone I know hates it) - but I am soooo ready for sunshine, beach, BBQ's and fresh yummy veggies and fruits!
If you want to have a chance to be even more ready, head to visit Good Gals Inc -
You know how I love my chances to win free goodies!
Manicure done. Pedicure done. Bathing suit packed. My fabulous new summer dresses packed. Flip flops of every color found and ready to be packed.
(I can already taste the fresh avacados!)
Tomorrow I head to San Diego to visit mom - so although summer isn't totally here yet - I will enjoy the beach and sun earlier then my New England peeps!
We head out on a Catalina Island cruise on Monday!
I couldn't be more ready - I so need this vacation!
Calgon take me away!
(or in my case - Grey Goose!)
