Tuesday SNOOZEday


Saturday's wedding was gorge!  Megan and Joe looked amazing!!  Pics aren't uploaded of course, but you expected that.. maybe tonight!  They're on mom's camera, so I'll give her a cup of honey nut cheerios and ask her nicely. 

Sunday, Wes, Mady and I saw Toy Story 3 on ice.  Yeah, that's right.. and it was awesome!!  Micky, Minnie, Goofy, Donald, Barbie, Ken, Buzz, Woody, Jessie, Bullseye.. Ham, Rex, the G.I. Joes, ummmm... slinky dog, Lotsa, Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head!

The day didn't stop there.. we headed over to the Busch Stadium to catch the thrilling end to the last Cards/Cubs match of the season! 

Then, Wes and I took our luck to the Rams game.. it clearly ran out on the walk to the dome.  But we had great seats!

Tonight team Abusement Park takes on another coed indoor team in their (why am I talking in third person?).. our request to remain unbeaten!  I'm confident we'll win.. we don't know how to do anything else.  BOOM! 

Happy Tuesday!

It's Friday, my peoples.. I totally titled this "TFIG" at first.  And then I laughed out loud.. to myself.

Short post today.

I received my first purchase ever from Zara last night.. do you recall how I had to find a dress for tomorrow's wedding.. you should recall, because it was in yesterday's blog.  Anyway, I ordered this dress.  And it's totally perf!!  I was a little nervous because of sizing.. I ordered a medium, which is usually a safe selection.  But my genius mom pointed out to me that the M measurements match a US size 6.  Which is questionable.. except for at Loft, I'm totes a size 6 there.  Look at me.. talking about my size on the world wide web.  Hi-five.

Anyway, dress fits like a dream!  I don't have citrus shoes, so I'll be wearing royal blue platforms..  and I'm gonna look awesome!  Pics to come, fo' sho.

Also, I went to put on an H&M sweater for only the 2nd time, and it has completely shrunk.. I'm all for $20 sweaters, but not when I only get one wear out of them.. Perhaps it will fit my Mom. 

Happy Friday!  Cheers to Meg and Joe getting hitched!

Thursday Schmursday

My client canceled tonight, I'm getting a little pampering done and then headed to the mall to find me a dress.  There's a wedding this weekend, and I have to be the prettiest 2nd prettiest one there.

1.  How many times have you been a bridesmaid/maid of honor?

Bridesmaid twice.. and the best one ever!!
I have a feeling I won't have to/get to be a Maid of Honor, all my BFFs have sisters.
Totally not complaining.. no offense, girls.

2.  What’s the last thing you do before you fall asleep at night?

Umm.. I'm usually unconscious in like 12 seconds.
But before I go to my bed...
I watch TV, play on the computer, sometimes I read, or catch up with Words With Friends.

3.  You just won your dream vacation, all expenses paid. Where are you going?

If I win this prior to 2014, then I'm going to the World Cup in Brazil.  Duh.

Cinque Terre, Italy

4.  What is your favorite outdoor activity?

Golf.  I suppose.. You could probably argue that with an outdoor mall.

5.  As a child, what did you want to “be when you grew up”?  Did you end up there?

I think I wanted to be a doc?  And an astronaut.
I'm not either, but there is still time.

6.  What are 3 things your dream home would have that you don’t currently have?

Slides, chandelier in my bathroom, and circle driveway

7.  What’s for dinner tonight?


8.  If someone stopped by your house unannounced on a typical Saturday night, what would they find you doing?

If I'm there, I'm probably asleep or watching TV.

9.  What’s your average monthly water bill?

$0 baby!  I live with Mom and Dad #winning

10.  What do you do to relax?


Happy Thursday!

TV is back!

HELLO.  I feel myself drifting from my blog.. solely because of PINTEREST.  I LOVE IT!  It's safe to say I'm obsessed.. no big deal.  Everyone go check it out.

Also, TV shows are back!  YAHOO!  I absolutely created a spreadsheet for some TV organization in mi vida.  I LOVE TV.  Remember when it used to be bad?  Or looked down upon?  Because if you're inside watching TV, you're not outside, and apparently obese.  Well, fooey.  Here's a break down for you.  You're welcome.

Two and a Half Men- if you missed it, watch it online.  Ashton is a star!

Dancing With The Stars-  I wanted to punch Hope Solo in the face.  I'm obvi a huge soccer fan, but please little baby Jesus let her cocky arrogant-ness be from nerves..  What is this, "I'm a pro athlete and that's why I have passion."  What?  Only pro athletes can have passion?  Get over yourself.  Or stop talking.  Or get a new PR person.  Rob Kardashian and KCav had better interviews than that!

I watched The Sing Off last night.. which I usually don't watch.  But I totally loved it.  Talk about talent!

And Castle is back on. 

I recorded  Glee, and New GirlAnna Kournikova is Jillian's replacement on The Biggest Loser.. not sure how I feel about that.. I'll probably still watch.

DWTS results is also on Tuesdays.. I usually don't watch and just look up who got the boot online or ask my Dad.  Ron Artest was the first to go.  Not too sad about it.

The Middle, Modern Family on ABC, both are an hour tonight.. I wonder if they'll be an hour going forward?

That's really all I know about Wednesday TV...

Charlie's Angels starts on ABC.. will you watch??  Not sure if I will.. maybe when something else is a repeat?  Minka Kelly will always be Lyla Garrity to me.. I don't think I'm ready to move on.  And I never saw the Charlie's Angels movies..

Grey's is still on!  I can't believe it.. I guess it hasn't been on as long as ER.  But I'll still watch, and then Private Practice.

Also on Thursdays.. The Office on NBC.  I know one big fan that's skeptical of James Spader.  Anyone else?  I'm looking forward to checking it out, at least the first episode anyway.  I actually really like the NBC Thursday line-up (Community, Parks & Rec, The Office and the new one, Whitney.).. I just am used to watching Grey's and Private Practice.. maybe I'll switch it up this season.

Did anyone watch Off The Map?  I loved it!  Mostly because of QB1 Matt Saracen.. but still.  I don't think it got picked back up. 

And, I'm boycotting TV on Fridays, because of Friday Night Lights.  So don't ask me what I'm watching on Fridays, because the answer will be nothing.

Happy Wednesday!  And Happy TV watching!  And GO CARDINALS!

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner

Hey sports fans!  The Duffman won 1st place in his first MAGA event at Far Oaks GC!

Check it out here.

I don't know what he wins, but whatever it is... I get 10%!  Because I was the best caddy ever!  And I'm confident he couldn't have won it without me...   In fact, I'll even go as far as saying I was the reason he won.  There's no way it could have been his cool, calm and collective composure, or his stellar ball striking ability.  No. Way.

Unfortunately we didn't leave with any hardware.  Just a new Illinois hat.  But I found this online!  BAM!

Congrats, Champ! 

My Memories Suite WINNER!

Congrats to Mandy!
Winner of My Memories Suite digital scrapbooking software!  I'll email your code, asap!

Happy Monday!

This is for reals amazing.

Happy Thursday! Again..

America's Got Talent

America's got me.  For one.. but did you watch?

I watched the first week and somewhere in the middle and the finale.. basically, I watched enough to know I wanted Landau Eugene Murphy, Jr. to win it all.  Did you fall in love with this man, too? 

Watch this, Landau's first audition.  The best 7 minutes and 22 seconds of your life..

In love, right?  I'm up to here in bubbles, too.

Now watch this.  Landau and Patti La-freakin-belle.

Take your bow, boo.

They announced on the show that all top 3 acts would get Vegas performances.  But only Landau won the dough. 

Here is Silhouttes..

And Team iLuminate..

This was my favorite season of AGT.  The best Top 3 fo sho.

I won't be mad if I see these shows in Vegas.

Happy Thursday!

Never Forget.

Check it.
3,000 flags in Forest Park on Art Hill.  If you live in the St. Louis Metropolitan area, this is a must see.

Each flag had a number and a name.  Bussie's Aunt died in the Sept. 11 attacks, so I found her flag.

This is a badass pic, too.  I'm going to find a contest and win.

Here's the best part.  You can reserve a flag.  On Sept. 19, this baby is mine.. and then I will send it to Buss. 

Plus, I totally love when the professional sports guys and girls change up their gear or uniforms based on what's going on in the world.  The NFL wears pink in Oct. and a lot of them had FDNY on their shoes yesterday.  I saw these on TV this morning.  I love it.  I want them.

God Bless the USA, God Bless New York, God Bless anyone and everyone affected by the attacks.  And God Bless anyone and everyone else because.. 'Murrica Rules.

Happy Monday!

My Memories Suite Giveaway

It's a good day for my FIRST GIVEAWAY EVER!!!!! YEAH BABY!!!

I've used My Memories Suite on my PC and my Mac.  I don't consider myself a "scrapbooker," however, I enjoy editing pictures, and have made albums from my digital pics as gifts or whatever.  Which to me, is sort of a scrapbook.  Right?  Using the software on my PC and Mac was similar.  I didn't notice anything I could do on one, but not the other.  I super loved all the features and options and buttons.  I had some trouble editing one picture.. ya know like making it black and white or whatever.. but on my Mac, if I'm gonna change the pic, iPhoto has those options, too.  So for photo editing, I'll probably stick to my laptop's features.  The only thing that frustrated me momentarily was.. I couldn't figure out how to get to iPhoto when adding pictures to the album I was creating.  I had/have to copy pictures to my desktop first, then pull them from my desktop to add them to my album.  I got over my frustrations, it was just an extra step.  But perhaps there is a short cut around it!  And, I have a feeling someone who does this all the time can figure it out.

My Memories Suite and I are giving away digital scrapbook software to one lucky ducky!! WOO

Here are the guidelines!

Visit http://www.mymemories.com/ and choose your favorite digital paper pack or layout, then leave it in my comments.

I need a Labor Day Break.

I'm feeling rather Laborous.. you?

1.  What's your guilty pleasure tv show?

Um. I feel like that means someone doesn't want me watching it? In which case, there are none.
I just recently fell in love with Tia & Tamera and The T.O. Show.
I do (still) kind of love almost everything on Disney..

2.  Ear piercings on men: yes or no?

Totally depends on the dude.

3.  Do you have dish or comcast?

4.  What's your favorite current fashion trend?

I'm loving these cropped tops.. wait..
Not the old school cropped tops that were basically bras with sleeves.


I'm talking shorter, boxier tops. Like this.

5.  If you could learn to do anything, money not being an issue, what would it be?


6. Red or white wine?

Whatever tastes more like soda.

7.  What type of food is your favorite (ex. italian, mexican, etc.)?

Um, what type of food isn't my favorite?
8.  Hp or mac?


9.  What color is your bedroom?


10.  What's your favorite form of exercise?


Happy Thursday! A giveaway is coming soon!
