Moo! Oink! Moo! Oink!

5 Nov

Okay, so I lied.

I said my Friday night was going to be wrapped up by my going to the Mall to get basketball shoes for Brucee.  Well, that idea fizzled out.  I rented movies from Redbox and hung out in my bedroom.  Total Fail.

Before I hibernated to my room, I ordered Brucee’s shoes from Eastbay.  Because I’m driven by free shipping I knew I needed to order additional to meet the free shipping minimum.   To save $$ (ha ha), I ordered myself two pairs of Eastbay running tights (light blue and pink).  Because I got two, I got them for $25 each.  I hope they don’t suck.

It was 32 degrees and I was ready for a run.  Besides, we had to drive an hour and half away for my great nephew’s (whoa that makes me feel old) birthday party.  I knew I couldn’t fart around anymore.  Started my run at 11:04am.  I ran 11.41 miles with an average mile/minute of 8:09.  It was beautiful and sunny.  I never felt cold or hot for that matter.

I would have to say that I’m getting addicted to listening to music again (during my runs).  I can’t stand hearing my feet thump on the ground.  It becomes agonizing.

I love a good party.  We drove over an hour away to my niece’s son’s first birthday party.  It had a “Farm” theme.  My niece (“C”) did a great job. It was nice out so a lot of people hung outside.  Straw bales, prizes mixed in a bin of corn, cake shaped like a barn, cupcakes designed as pigs, chicks and lambs (so wished I would have gotten a picture of these).  We ate pulled pork, pigs in a blanket, baked corn casserole bundles and macaroni and cheese bundles.  She didn’t miss a beat by adding all the cute little farm touches to everything.  “C” and her husband were wearing their plaid shirts and little guy had his bib overalls on.

Before we knew it, we had to head back home.  I just love being around family.  It’s just such a comfort to me.

Random.  Mick’s favorite top six movies (not in any order, of course):

Man on Fire

Remember the Titans

Live and Let Die

Casino Royale

Happy Gilmore

Trinity Is Still My Name

On the way home, I’m not sure why, but bed times were brought up.  Mick told the boys he went to bed at 7:30pm (back when he was their age).  They asked how late he stayed up in high school and he said 2am.  Surprised them, so he explained that he didn’t go to school at that point because he dropped out of school in 10th grade to work.  He fibs to them a lot (and then never tells them the truth).  It’s sad.  Of course, I told them that I used to fly helicopters in the Army…

I gave Mick crap for not taking me out on a date the night before.  I thought maybe I could milk a couple of drinks up at the local pub if I annoyed him enough.   I had four (4) Twisted Teas.  Small buzz.  Church in the morning will be NO PROBLEM.  I got this.


It’s People Watching Time…

5 Aug

Shaaaaa.  Hello?!  Anyone there?

Yeah.  Today is Friday and I’m a workaholic so I had to go get my work on…

Wearing a new dress from The Loft.  Got this $50 dress for $35 bucks. Wore it with some Steve Madden patent leather peephole platform shoes (phewww, that was a mouthful). 

I shouldn’t be buying anymore summery things but it was so comfortable.  We have another month of summer plus I’m going on a Southern Caribbean cruise later this year and I can wear it then. 

My daughter got done w/work early and asked to meet me for lunch which is disguise for, “will you buy my lunch?”.  Well of course I wanted to meet up with her.  She’ll be leaving me in a couple weeks to go back to school so I need to take advantage of my time with her.  We had italian subs.  They were fantastico!

The Who and I grabbed our bikinis and went over to where my little boys were.  Hung out for about 4 hours in the sun. 

Watched a little Jersey Shore.  The boys came out of nowhere and watched it with me (and acted like they had no other choices).  I think The Roo (15 1/2 yrs old) liked Pauly D because he laughed at everything he did.  I like Pauly D too and I know I should be embarrassed for admitting it.

*****************LET ME JUST SAY…

Okay, so it’s like 2 in the morning and I’m finally finishing by blog for August 5th.  Sorry.  Time got away from me.  I’ll try not to “drunk blog”.

We went to the fair.  I went for 2 reasons.  One, I wanted to eat some junk food (and I did).  And, two, I wanted to people watch (and I did).  Mick and I and the boys met up with our friends who happen to have two boys the same age as our boys.  The adults went one way and the kids went the other.

Steel Magnolia was playing in the grandstands but that’s totally not my kind of music so we skipped that.  I got a nasty italian sausage in a big bun w/onions and green peppers, covered in cheese.  It was SICK!  I ate all of it.  I also had some deep fried Snickers and Oreos.


We took the boys back to our house and we adults went to the local town bar.  I drank several Twisted Tea’s (like Arnold Palmers).  Hence, my getting home at 2am in the morning feeling a little tipsy.  I need to sleep because I really want to run Saturday morning. 

Hopefully, I don’t have a hangover.

Oh and I never worked out on Friday (today).  Shitake Mushrooms!!!
