Random Thoughts On A Tuesday

Not much going on round these parts lately - so I leave you with some thoughts, a la bullet point style.
  • I'm kinda over gosspi girl this season. I know, I know - who would of thought I would ever get tired of Chuck Bass - but sad to say, it's true
  • Is it sad that I'm already thinking Christmas. I've made my lists and mapped out a game plan, pathetic I know since it's not even October yet.
  • Jillian Michaels scares me, like straight up hardcore scares me. But I love her, and I can't help it but I'm seriously developing a huge girl crush on her. Possibly replacing Mia Michaels.
  • On the train ride home today there were 6-7 SANTAS! On. The. Train. Craziness right?? I couldn't stop smiling. I wish they were on my train ride home everyday.
  • Also, someone tried to pick me up on the same train ride. Sadly, it wasn't a Santa. However, it was extremly awkward. After chatting about the crappy train ride and the funny Santa's he said "Maybe I can take your number and buzz you sometime?", my response "Umm.....sorry". Seriously I didn't know what to say. It's been a long time since that happened, and this girl? Is outta practice.
  • I cannot stop listening to Jay Z's new cd. Think it had something to do with his appearance on Oprah, ever since then I find myself oddly fascinated with him. What's wrong with me??
  • I am LOVING my new shampoo. Aussie's "Sydney Smooth" AMAZING! I haven't had to flat iron my hair for the last two days. Blow dry and a little product and viola! Pretty, frizz free hair. Where have you been all my life?
  • Speaking of hair - I'm thinking of a hair change! Dana....are you listening?? LOL! I need a change - maybe something drastic, I'm thinking of a bob - something angular to my face, maybe some color too! I need change, I am over this hair of mine.
  • Loving this fall weather, I mean today? Gorgeous! However it has me craving some new fall clothes, and boots and bags!! I'm thinking a second job is in order, well either that or robbing a bank. I think the second job is a safer bet :)

Hope everyone is having a great week so far!!!!

My favorite day of the week


Adore them. Love sleeping in with the H, reading the paper together and catching up on current events with George Stephanopoulos. It's been quiet so far today, there's so much to do but I don't feel like doing it - how's that for honesty??!!

The H and I are watching the babe today while mom and dad head to the Phillies game and I don't have to tell you all how excited I am for that!! He's getting so big, crawling, trying to stand, blabbering like a fool. He's incredible.

So that's my day, hope everyone is having an awesome weekend.

Girls Day

This morning started early. 6:00 am early. I don't think anyone should have to get up that early, especially on a non-working day. But I did.

Today I took my beautiful step-daughter H to breakfast & then shopping to get some back to school clothes.
Junior year this year my friends - OF COLLEGE!!

This time next year she will be getting ready to graduate & on her way to teaching full time.

I can't even wrap my head around it. This girl, is so smart. She's double majoring - going to school for Elementary Ed, with a minor in Spec ED and Psych. There's no doubt in my mind that she's going to make an amazing teacher. Kids love her and she's so great with them.

Anyhow.....we went to one of our favorite local spots, had a great breakfast and even better conversation. Afterwards we headed up to the mall, in search of a few new things - some "professional" clothes as she called them and some jeans. This girl, is one of the pickiest people to shop with ever - GOD love her, but she makes me nuts. After about an hour we left with 5 or 6 tops and a couple pair of pants. Quick and painfree. Not bad! I'm sitting around waiting for my nephew to get here, hubby watches him during the day - but today, Aunt Bebe gets to spoil that little guy. I don't have to tell you that I cannot wait!!!

Four Day Weekends

I've been out of work since 12:00 Friday afternoon, while some would think that sounds blissful - right now I want to pull my hair out or scream, yeah - screaming would be a lot less painful.

I don't know what to do with myself when I have a lot of time on my hands. I know you're thinking "wow, I could think of a million things" right?? I know. What's wrong with me??

I've shopped, cleaned the house, baked and cooked - hell I even cleaned the bathroom and did (and put away!) all the laundry. I should be wiped out. I should be in bed watching a marathon of the Real Housewives of Atlanta but I feel a little stir crazy. Could be because I haven't left the house all day, and I'm not planning to. Do you guys ever feel like that??

Last weekend I couldn't WAIT for this weekend, to get stuff done & have four days off with no plans.

Now that it's here - I WANT PLANS! Oh well.....I may grab a book & go curl up in bed and read.

Tomorrow I'm going to take my step daughter out to breakfast so we can catch up, I feel like I really haven't spent quality time with her lately and I miss her. She starts her junior year of college on Thursday (I know, JUNIOR year! Can you beleive it???) so after breakfast I think I'm going to surprise her and take her out to get a few new outfits.

The H has the babe in the afternoon, so I can't wait to smother him in kisses!! I hope you all are enjoying this last weekend of Summer - whether it's quiet or crazy I hope your having fun!

Better late than never

WHOA! It's been awhile. Sorry friends. I wish I had a good excuse but I don't! Life has been busy and I really haven't had a whole lotta time to devote to this little corner - just thought I'd check in and say hi!! So what's new my friends?? Same ole' stuff here. Four day weekend, gotta love labor day! Is it me or am I the only one who already whipped out my fall decorations, pumpkins and scarecrows and started decorating?? God, I love this time of the year!!

So, shocker......I cooked tonight.

Dinner - I know, can you beleive it??!!
Those of you who know me, know I’m not ummm….very good in the kitchen to say the least.

I can bake like nobodies business, but - when it comes to having to cook vegetables & potatoes or rice - forget it, maybe it’s the timing of everything but truth be known I suck.

Thankfully I have an amazing, talented hubby who cooks dinner 6 out of 7 nights a week (yes, ladies - this is one of the many reasons I snagged him). That being said, I usually try to give him a break on the weekends and cook - it usually ends up in the garbage, but tonight - I got raves all around.

I made honey dijon chicken breasts, with sauteed grean beens and white rice. I found the recipe here; which is one of my new favorite blogs by the way!

Next up - chocolate chip cookies!! YUM! Tomorrow I just may try my hand at home-made meatballs, I maybe pushing it but I figured I better strike while the iron is hot!
