i laugh too loud. i sing all the time. i cry easily. i've been told i have the oddest sense of humor. ever. yes, i'm the one in the movies laughing when no one else gets it. the only time i dance is for my kids. they love my "rubber dance!" remember in school when you use to shake your pencils til they looked all bendy and rubbery? yeah, it's like that! ha! i stay up late and wake up early. i see a therapist who helps keep me straight and making good decisions. i do not speak to my mother and think this is great! I am moody, opinionated, emotional, intelligent, and empathetic. i love all things girly but mostly shoes, and have a bizarre infatuation with the following: lady gaga, celine dion, stacy london, britney spears. (how the heck does that even make sense?!) oh yeah and i am addicted to my iPhone.

YES I AM ALREADY MADLY AWAITING BREAKING DAWN!!!!

not me monday...



not me monday is a fun first of the week idea started by mckmama over @ http://www.mycharmingkids.net/. she devised a way for us to be able to talk about some of the things that we wouldn't normally talk about or admit to. she is awesome and i enjoy her blog immensely. so shoot on over there, link up, and let us know what you did didn't do over your weekend.

over the last week i most certainly did not:

  • rip my hair out by the root because my children were home from school for 3 days straight. meaning that they were home for 5.frickin.days. am i still alive? this is still to be determined.
  • pick a fight with sir g. not on 1 occasion. not on 2 occasions. and definitely not on 3 separate occasions did i pick a fight with him. it was not because it was my time of the month. it was not because i wasn't feeling well, and it certainly had nothing to do with the fact that i thought he was being a fart. nope. not me. i would never do something so incredulous as to pick a fight!
  • ignore the never ending mess that is my kitchen. everything is done in this kitchen. work. play. creativity. eating. drinking. crafts. dishes. you name it, my kitchen is used for it. so ignoring my kitchen would entail actually having the garage door opener in my jacket pocket [which i totally didn't do, btw] and using the front door to go to the car, etc.
  • kick myself in the ass for ignoring my kitchen because every woman on the planet knows that what you put off for tomorrow becomes a higher stack in tomorrow's things to get done today list. and any woman who lives with a man knows that no matter how long you wait for him to clean up said kitchen/mess, he will not do it. *le sigh*
  • take my non-deserving children to see "cloudy with a chance of meatballs" when i really wanted to see "where the wild things are." being outnumbered is no bueno. i must remember this the next time of think of sir g. i mean sheesh, he's got 3 chicas running around the house not being girls, over-emotional, and dramatic!
  • stay up wayyyy later than intended to immerse myself in DVR.
  • eat 2--yes i said 2 bowls of cookies & cream ice cream!
  • sneak to old navy and buy 75 dollars worth of clothing. i did not get a cute scarf, to DIE for boots, or a few shirts that say heyyyyyyyy! nope not me. because i'm a careful spender who keeps track of ever.single.dime.
  • realize that these not me's today are rather boring and i didn't do anything of any merit this past week other than:
    • not buy lady n a camera so she can stop stealing mine [worked like a charm!]
wow. i'm full of joy today. LOL it's late. it's been a LONG day. i'm ready for bed. i'll post more tomorrow when random thought tuesday whisks my mind to far away places where i can slide down a rainbow of ribbons into a pot of chocolate or some shit like that.


ps- so i tried all y'alls fav starbuck drinks this week:
  • pumpkin spice latte: it was OK. not great. not blah. just...eh.
  • chi tea latte: yummay. it was good. will probably get it again just for chi tea sake.
  • caramel apple spice: HONEYYY...this is my drink. oh em gee. i got a small and went straight back in and asked for a mucho grande. then i got home, got the recipe, and will spend my days enjoying a caramel apple spice a la diva because mine is sooooo saaaaweeeetly magnifique!!
  • who KNEW something that good could be available in drinkable form??? not me!
