This is a really beautiful acapella version of I'll be there... It makes me want to hug all my loved ones...

I mean, in my opion she was a MEAN, nasty hag. She is always nagging him, says really hurtful things to him and the children.

I am over it!

And I AM SO SICK ABOUT HEARING ABOUT IT!!! But if you have not heard about "The big announcement" Click here

And now that they are divorcing the show is now on hiatus ONLY FURTHERING the paparazzi and public's SHOCK value about the show.

And its only just begun!

Since we have moved our electric bills have been pretty tame. Only around $40-50.

Well the last week its been over 100 degrees EVERY DAY, with no break in the heat.

And our AC has been running NON-stop for a week!!! Ugg its just starting because this bill does not even TOUCH what they are about to be!

So maybe I am panicking a little? Our heating bills in Wyoming were OVER $300 all winter because of the electric heat. So I am keeping my fingers crossed it does not get too bad!

Flights are booked!

My flights are booked for Canada WEEHOO!!!

I am so excited, I will be home with family and friends from August 14th till September 2nd!!

I am a little bummed out about it though. The hubby is not coming as we had originally planned for a few reasons. 1. He is taking time off already in August for a prior commitment he has. 2. Daisy (because she can not be kennelled) 3. Money. 4. He has LOTS of stuff going on at work and is not sure if its the right thing to do to take off so much work.

I had an interview today and I have a second interview on Friday (for another serving job) and I have been applying at various "big girl jobs" with still no luck. I need to start working LIKE crazy because when I take time off, well I am not getting paid. Anything. So 2 1/2 weeks with no pay is going to HURT!

I know something has gotta give soon right?

Summer reading

So umm yeah. I better get to reading. 33 books that have been purchased from thrift stores and garage sales. All 33 books you see cost me less than $5. I have found this great new thrift store that has a 5 for $1 books.


See when we moved I promised to leave my monster book shelf of books packed. And they are still packed, so as I read through these I will start giving them away to my blog readers! How cook is that?

I am going to do a little review on the book, then POOF its yours. I am still trying to figure out how to do it? First comment about who wants it?

Any ideas?

The pictures to go with the drunk blogging

Ok so these were funny to see the next day.

Remember my drunk blog?
Well these are the pictures from that night!

I would like to say this is how it all started!!

Notice the sign on the bar behind me? Yeah...... I have NO IDEA how I ended up on the bar?? On top of the bar? I mean I would be lying if I said this was the first bar I stood on... And lets face it I am a pretty wild gal so I doubt it will be that last one either... Thank goodness they warn you first!

I have no explanation for this one. Other than we were at a biker bar? And I maybe borrowed this from someone? Anyone? Must go wash my hair again....

It was a fun night!! Can you guess which picture is my favorite? lol, I really like to amuse myself sometimes!

80 mile an hour winds!

We have been having some really bad weather lately.

Its TORNADO season here in Kansas. Which until the other night when the apt felt like it was about to be swept up in a tornado, I never really "felt" any danger.

I was about 2 seconds away from dragging my mattress and the dog into the bathtub. Daisy would have peed on me for sure.

Oh and as I finished this post ANOTHER tornado warning is flashing across the TV.

Drunk blogging


The hubby is out of town. And one of my good friends is in town so we "hit the town" for a few drinks.

And by few I mean the drinks were $2. And all 5 of us spent $20. So needless to say I should not be bloggin right now.

But I am going to. Because I have to, but its all going to be bullet points.

* I wonder if my husband will ever know the extent of my love. He has been gone less than 24 hours and I already miss him like crazy. I have ALWAYS been really independent, and I would like to think I still am. But when you have a lover to sleep with every night and then he is not here. It hurts a little. And I wonder if he will ever know how much I love him?

* A friend is going through a really tough time right now (hence the drinks) but I wish I could help give her the strength to walk away. He said he is with someone else, or is "interested and starting a realaionship with someone else. Its time to move on. As harse as that is for you. Its his way of letting you down nicely. I do understand you have a child together, but holding that child as "a negotiation piece" is not going ot make him want to be with you any more? Period.

* I hate to be drunk. Well thats a I just hate the morning after. My car is sitting safely (hopefully) in a parking lot that I will have to pick up in the morning. Yep 1 drink is too many for me to get behind the wheel. Call me "square" if you want but nothing is worth getting a DUI and being deported......

* I love my hubby.

* Some guy told me I was a "dude" tonight, he was hitting on my friend that is "newly"sinjgle but dealing with baby daddy drama and said i was a dude. He said I was too "not a girl" and made him really scared but that my husband was a lucky guy.
I think I am proud of that. I chalked it up to my 3 brothers rubbing bubble gum in my hair. But I am proud to say I will never say anything about you That I would not say to your face. anD i WILl NOT FOR ANY reason blow sunshine up your ass. That is just not me (lol I asked him why he was wearing A RUB ON TATTOO on his arm.) I mean really? really?

* I have some fabulous shoes. And I got no less than 3 comments on my shoes tonight

* l Love my doggie, she is so friggin cute. I just want to kiss her all the time. I have NO IDEA what we used to do without her. 2 1/2 years we have had her and I still love coming home to her. Regardless of if we are gone 5 minutes or 5 hours she is always so excited to see us.

* we hav enew neighbors, downstairs, they moved in today, i think they have 3 kids, in a 2 bedroom apt. I can hear the kids screaming already, this shoudl be interesting.

* I am not going to spell check

* I just flossed my teeth (not a good idea when you have been drinking) an dI bet they will still be hurtin gin the morning.

Done my drubk

Fabulous Fridays!!

So I am not sure if any of you think of this. Being I have shoe brain when I find a FABULOUS pair of shoes I ALWAYS dream of the perfect outfit to wear them with.

And being that not all of my shoes are "normal" run of the mill shoes this takes some great calculations and skills!!

See these babies. Yeah black heal, fades to blue then green? The first time I wore these, I wore black capris and a white top. I received about a million compliments on these babies (could be because I was at an all girls function with 20 ladies?)

WELL I FOUND A MATCHING DRESS!!! How cool is that.

So I think I am going to do this post every Friday. One pair of Fabulous shoes with the fabulous outfit to match. I sure do love me some fashion!

What do you think?

Beyond frustrated!!

So you know that "new job" I got at a chain restaurant.

I quit today.

Yep, they are SO unorganized that after 40 hours (which is WAY excessive for a server position) they still have me in training. **did I mention I have been doing this 20 years too?**

And its not like its a High Class 5 star restaurant. Think the cheapest chain restaurant, greasy spoon and that's where it was.

After 3 weeks.

And the owner is a LOSER!! Upon being hired I told them I could only work days, so I could change my other job around to evenings only. Well now all of a sudden after 3 weeks he is trying to tell me he needs me for nights.

Really? After 3 weeks? He also asked me to come in this morning to "discuss this" because even though we have spoken 2 weeks ago about my schedule he had no problems then?



Its their loss, I left my hours and told them to call me when I can get my check.

Do you ever have that feeling?

When you are somewhere and it just feels like you belong? Like you ended up in the place so that you can make the next steps?

Well I was at a function this weekend at a retirement community and I had the weirdest feeling come over me. The moment that this feeling came over me a volunteer coordinator walked right past me.

So long story short I have a new volunteer position at a beautiful retirement community!! I am SO excited. The facility is beautiful. Everyone that works there seems really nice, so I will be volunteering on Mondays. And the best news is I get to do whatever I want. Paint toes, read books, play games.

And in the process of telling my new volunteer coordinator that I was SO EXCITED to get started a lady from The American Heart Association overheard me and asked if I ALSO wanted to volunteer with them?? She said I was very out going and friendly and I would be a great asset to their team too!! They do a bunch of fun events to educate women about heart health and basically they provide all the training and I pick which events I want to do!!

I am SO EXCITED!!! 2 new volunteer positions. In 1 day!

I hope it brings her as many blessings..

So remember the story about me giving away my wedding dress?

Well the day has come. And it was just as beautiful the second time around!! Hubby and I waiting for the ceremony to start.

Here comes the beautiful bride!! In my dress!! I was so elated and emotional to see it being worn again! After 6 years it was still timeless!

The new husband and wife.... And he LOVED the dress he told her it was made for her and was so beautiful!

The beautiful bride in my (well hers really) dress.

The bride and her mom. Her mom when she figured out I was the one who donated the dress grabbed me in the biggest bear hug and whispered in my ear that "You will never know what a blessing it was to have me give L my dress, and thank you from the bottom of my heart!"

L asked how she could ever repay me for just giving her my dress.

And I told her "A day will come when you can do something for someone else. Something selfless that they can not do for themselves. And then you will help them and thats all the payment I will ever need"

And I believe she will.

Its first run around....

The happiest day of my life...

Pedicure on a budget!

I love being a girl. Part of that love is having cute feet and being able to indulge on pedicures. I think nothing makes me feel better than a good pedicure...

But seeing how I am on a budget I can not warrant spending $30 on my feet right now...

I did it myself!! Its takes way longer than at a salon but seeing how most of us ladies have all the stuff we need in our own bathrooms already. I sat in front of the TV watched "Say yes to the dress" and did my toes.

Voila!! I think I may have even done a better job than the salon too!

Making ends meet.

Just barely. The hubby and I have lots of travel plans for this summer. And because I still have not been able to find a "big girl" job since the move I am waiting tables.

At 2 different restaurants.

Yep, buckled and got a second job. And I feel so blessed at this point, although I am SO TIRED and I will be woking ALL THE TIME, I am excited to be able to maybe get some money in the bank.

See when I do not work. I do not get paid. And we are taking 2 weeks off in August to go home to Canada and we have nothing saved.

So the next 2 months I will be working breakfasts (early morning at 6am) Full time for a popular breakfast place.

And dinners at a popular dinner place.

Burning it at both ends..... But I am thankful that I am able to work : )
