My Mother's Day Dress

I am so excited to share.. I bought this dress. I love it! My husband helped me pick it out, since he Hates nearly every single dress I own. He thought it looked nice... and I agreed. It fits and feels ah-mazing. I am so exited! Silly right?
Sensibly Styled also has a coupon for any of the dresses at William Riera. You should check out both sites.

Love this Photo

So my sister has been into this Holga camera thing... I don't think that I would buy one... but I can really appreciate the artistic photos that come from them. I found this photo at a fun little blog called Rockstar Diaries. It has really fun ideas and interesting design photos. Just thought I would share!

Here is my new favorite... I LOVE music. So much so I cannot express it. What is more exciting than new music... that is really good? Not much... so that is why this is so great! Almost Alice (music inspired by the motion picture)... how exciting is this not to mention that it has some great artists and really great singles. They Might Be Giants, Avril Lavigne, Motion City Soundtrack, Owl City... oh... they are all really fun. So there it is... go listen and download if you like! I LIKE!

* On itunes if you download the album you get 18(!!)songs for $9.99. While at Amazon you can buy the album with 16 songs for $11.99 or download the 16 from their site for $9.49.

Trying Something New

Because I am bored to tears and need a hobby and I am not motivated to do much else than surf the Internet... my little sister and my husband are excited to for me to try... well not quite this... but it is a start.

I am going to find random things on the Internet that I think are great finds. Share them with you, why they are great and where you can get them.

So here goes...

Because I love bread.. the fancy kind that is crusty on the outside and soft on the inside, I am excited about this book. I think I could bake this bread... it takes no time and it looks so yummy! Not to mentions I could use all the help I can get in the getting healthy department.

They even have a tutorial video that may even turn me into a baking genius... okay, it might help me bake the bread successfully.

Ok.. so see what you think!

Yes, he was crazy and yes, he was pretty sick... but he was AMAZING!
I was pretty young when Thriller came out... But I loved and watched every second of the making of the video over and over. I danced to that music many nights. I have enjoyed his music for most of my life and his music inspires so many ... so it is pretty sad that he is gone. Not that I expected him to do anything else in his lifetime or that it is that big of a shock after the turns his life has taken... but it is sad. Sad we lost someone so gifted... but I would suppose that we lost him years ago... but I will always be thankful for the wonderfully fun music that he left.

Anyone care to swap?

So I was chatting with a neighbor here about our quaint little town. Guess what I found out... apparently, my quaint little town has a nice party life behind the private Christian schools and rich Baptist Churches. I am not referring to the coke parties for the geriatric... because that is pretty rampant. I was informed that I need to be careful with which parties I agree to attend. Swinging is alive and well here in the Midwest. I guess that there are a few couples that live in our own neighborhood that often hold these gatherings. Seriously?! That's offending! I mean they haven't even asked me yet. Really... I cannot think of anything I would rather not do. And that includes having my eyes burned out by a hot poker.
I have so many questions... So what do the invites look like? how does the switch go down? How much is drinking is involved to get you to that point? There is bound to be a guy there that nobody wants to get stuck with, what do you do then? How do you politely say, um I'd rather die than attend?
Let me just say that my town has a whole 10,000 people. How incestuous is that? What does that do for Father's day here? How can the future generations even be expected to date? I mean they may all be related... and likely are. Ugh... my head is spinning.

Finally... Huh?!

SO I am feeling a little more settled... I guess that why I feel like I can blog--- vent.
I have been SO Sick the past few days. I have never had food poisening (at least like this) and on Saturaday it was a doosy. I went to dinner followed by a movie (Twilight... back to that in a sec). Ten minutes into the movie Rich got called into the hospital and I was on a solo date (what's new). Halfway through the movie I knew that something was terribly wrong (Not that the movie was THAT bad... but) I had to puke in the theater's public bathroom. Oh... and it was not any puke... I have not puked this much EVER... and I have been pregnant 4 times! It was aweful... I had to rinse out my hair clean my glasses and wash off my shirt... still at the theater... alone!!! I finished and returned to the movie.
I texted Rich to hurry because I was now in need of a doctor and he got there just as the movie ended. I made it home and started the puking all over again. Rich is laughing asking if I needed to go to the ER. HA! Yes... I considered that after I threw up the water and ibuprophen. I did not have to suffer alone for long. Rich was just 2 hours after me... HA! Now who is laughing... well not quite yet I was still suffering. I tried to go to church the next day... HA! That did not work... so I returned home and laid in bed the rest of the day. I decided to finish the twilight series ... Breaking Dawn. For over 750 pages... it read really fast.

Here is the thing. The idea is novel. I like the idea (I realize I am treading on thin ice with the rabid Twilight fans). I just feel like there was not a lot of followthrough... It just felt like a lot of fluff without any substance to sink my teeth into... HA! I really wish it had been fulfilling. Not so much. Oh well...
