Birthday gifts

As I posted before, Friday was my birthday. I received lovely cards from my sister, mother and grandmother. I also had gifts waiting for me when I got home from work.

From husband-
The flowers also came with the final season of Will and Grace on DVD.

From the girls-
They gave me a stand mixer that I've been eying. You can picture the mixer, but the card was priceless.

Halloween = Slut Fest???

OK, can I ask... when did Halloween become a slut fest? I realize it's not an entirely new thing, because in college the sorority girls had quite the slut-atious outfits for Halloween.

Saturday we went to Hooters (yes, I know the girls there always dress slutty) to watch the Ultimate Fighting Championship fight. Apparently, it was also Halloween night. Some of the waitresses were literally wearing bras and panties with a set of wings and calling themselves Victoria Secret Angels. I can assure you, most of them were not.

Our waitress was not the sluttiest one there (that honor went to the Raggedy Ann doll with both her butt and her breast hanging out). She was dressed as Candy Corn... Slutty Candy Corn. This is the best picture I could find of Candy Corn-
Only, her skirt was a bit shorter and she didn't have the black corset. Just skirt and candy corn bra.

On a much more interesting note--- Raggedy Ann and the VS Angel were involved in some sort of altercation. I went to the bathroom and in the handicap stall next to me the VS Angel and the Slutty Solider were talking. VS Angel was crying and Slutty solider was saying, "Don't let her bring you down. Tonight is supposed to be fun. You are so much better than her. You're an Angel!" *seriously, she said that*

I had no idea who she was fighting with. I went back to my table to tell my friend about the waitress fight (since UFC fighting isn't really my thing). All of a sudden Raggedy Ann comes flying around the corner and we can see her and VS Angel arguing next to the bar. The manager pulled all three girls into some back room (where the "bad" girls are sent). The Solider came out within a minute or two (guess the fight wasn't about her). Nearly twenty minutes later we saw the VS Angel come out. Her face was red and you could tell she had been crying. Here's the best/funny/weird/scary part... WE NEVER SAW RAGGEDY ANN AGAIN!!! In my own head, I have developed a story about what happened to her, but I'm sure the truth is much less interesting.

Friday's Five Things

In preparation for my birthday weekend, here are my latest five favorite things!

1. Caramel Apple Spice from Starbucks (remember those caramel suckers with the green apple coating??? That's what this drink taste like. And today, I got mine free!)

2. Sabe! Happy First Birthday little man!

3. My husband. He builds me tables and benches and installs molding and hardwood floors.

4. Vegetable soup. I've been fighting a horrific cold all week and last night I made some veggie soup and felt a little better.

5. Grey's Anatomy. Loving Alex and Izzy. SO much better than George and Izzy!

Happy Birthday to ME!!!!!

Today is officially my birthday. It's also Sabe's birthday, but he is too young to realize, so today we are just celebrating me!

Big thanks to John at Starbucks. I told him it was my birthday and I got a FREE Caramel Apple Spice (it taste like Christmas!).

It's (almost) my birthday!

Tomorrow is my birthday. It's my golden birthday. My husband, being the loving man that he is, sat down and asked me what I would like for my special day.

Husband: Wife of mine, what would you cherish the most on your special day?

Me: I don't know.

H: A belt sander?

M: Not so much.

H: A jigsaw?

M: Not even a little bit.

H: A router?

M: Do we have any Tylenol?

At this point in the conversation I take two Tylenol PM and fall asleep by 7:00 p.m. Is it fair to ask a woman drunk on Tylenol PM what she wants for her birthday?

I wonder what tomorrow's gift bag will bring???

Giving up the Dream (House)

So, I have a dilemma. I have always dreamed of my house. The house that I would build when I grew-up. I can picture my perfect bathroom and shiny kitchen. The hardwood floors, the fireplace and the laundry room. Now that I have grown up a little, I see that building a dream house isn't in the cards for everyone.

My father would like us to buy his house. It's a perfectly nice house. Built less than 10 years ago. I even had some input in the design. While it's perfectly nice, it's not the house that I would build. No double sinks in the master bath, no pot filler in the kitchen and hardly what I would call an ideal laundry room.

It's a great price and it's next door to my siblings where I want to be. I guess the question is: Is the convenience of an all-ready built perfectly nice house worth giving up the dream of the dream house???

More on that to come...

Damn you TiFaux!

Last week I set off on another round of travels. I packed my bags (had I known about the new $50 baggage fee from DELTA Airlines, I would have packed only one big bag), set my DVR, kissed my husband and headed off to Chicago.

Chicago is a great city. It's really clean and shiny. I walked the Navy Pier, saw Oprah's house and shopped the Magnificent Mile. It was all fun and great but I was looking forward to returning home Sunday night and catching up on my shows.

That's when IT happened. I returned home to find that my DVR had not recorded anything from Tuesday night to Saturday morning!!!!! Oh DVR, how can you do this to me? No Project Runway (the season finale, mind you), no Pushing Daises, Ugly Betty or Grey's Anatonmy????

Lucky for me ABC.com lets you watch epsiodes of your fave shows for free. As far as Project Runway, I guess Nev's blog will have to do.

Happy Birthday Papa!

Today is my dad's birthday. I was a good daughter and called him to wish him a happy birthday... he is sick and not in the mood to talk.

Oh well! Happy Birthday Pops! I'm playing "The Cowboy Song" for you!
