Leafy Yumminess!


Well hello and good morning to you all!!! Here I go again on another one of my hair brained plans. I have become a vegetarian, or so I think I have. I don’t know, how long do you have to go without eating meat before you can officially say you’re a vegetarian? A week? A month? Years? Is there a vegetarian handbook out there? Oh well, I guess it doesn’t really matter because I make up my own rules as I go. This is MY life isn’t it?

So far I’ve gone 1 day without eating meat and honestly I really don’t see this as a potential future problem. I really think I can do this! I shall see I guess and so will all of you. Until I either crack or turn green I will see you next time my lovely followers.


Good Times

I’m back! Let me tell you a little story about what happened when I got back home after class last night.

My daughter has been practicing her dance moves because she wants to submit a video for Disney’s Make Your Mark contest. So all of us were helping her by recording her with our phones, replaying them for her and giving her critiques. Shortly after that, we started goofing off with our phones. My oldest son was re-enacting his sister’s dance moves and we shared some laughs while I was trying to covertly get him on video.

Well, that was the original plan, however, I was using my daughter’s phone and realized that she had the forward facing camera on, therefore I got nothing but video of my face…..or did I??

After having a good laugh about video recording my face we all got a bit distracted and I placed the phone down while it was still recording. So what happened next? Did I just record 20 more seconds of family nostrils? No.

My 9-year-old son sneaks the phone from the table and starts recording himself making the most ridiculous faces ever!! Let me tell you, when he got back and told us to look at the video, I was laughing so hard,

the integrity of my pants was highly at risk. I really wish I could post the video for all to see, however, I am not a video master by no stretch of the imagination so I don’t know how to edit it, sorry. I have not laughed that hard in a long time! I really, really needed that.

Lesson here: I think at times we allow ourselves to get so caught up in our troubles that we forget how to take it easy and have fun sometimes. I want to thank my children for helping me get back to my happy, joyful self. Thank you my loves!!!

Double Whammy

Ok folks. I have yet another movie review, however, with a little added bonus – as mentioned in the title…it’s a double whammy!! (AKA, a double movie review) So, I got invited to go to the movies with my sweety today and I got to pick the movie. Being that I love Adam Sandler I figured “That’s My Boy” would be worth a shot.

Well, of course I was well aware that this movie would be a….well, whatever you would call the opposite of a chick flick. There was lots of cursing, nudity and inappropriate scenarios but guess what? That’s what made the movie hilarious!! I couldn’t stop laughing; Adam Sandler is just frickin’ ridiculous sometimes.

Someone else who had me in stitches was Andy Samberg. Who know nerdy looking Andy could be so funny? (Other than the umpteen million other people in the world who have cable and watch him on SNL)

So being that I’m not a professional movie reviewer, or whatever the PC title is, I’m going to just mention some highlights and hope that it doesn’t ruin it for anyone.

Basically the movie starts off with Donnie (or Donny, can’t remember) Berger (Adam Sandler) and his “hottie” middle school teacher having a sexual relationship. They were caught of course which in turn made Donnie famous for living the dream of apparently every middle/high school boy and sending, now pregnant, teacher to jail for 30 years.

Ok now, so fast forward to I don’t know how many years and long story short Donnie is in need of some money, his son is someone who, although not very popular, is someone who is well off. Therefore, Donnie tries to rekindle his relationship with his estranged son by visiting him on the weekend of his wedding. It was just all around too funny to go into a summary without spilling all of the good moments. Sorry, told ya I wasn’t a professional at this (at least not yet!) P.S. Waaaaazzzzzzuuuuupppp is NOT back! (Thank God!)

Now on to the next short, quick review.

Ok now I know this isn’t the most current of movies but after watching “That’s My Boy ” my sweety and I plopped down on the couch and “Iron Man” was on so I figured, what the hay? It’ll at least give me some blog material 🙂

So I had just recently seen this movie for the first time around 2 or 3 weeks ago after watching “The Avengers” (yet another awesome movie) because I had not seen it yet and I wanted to catch up.

As I’m sure everyone knows at this point, this movie is about basically how weapons developer, Tony Stark, became Iron Man. Robert Downey Jr. does an excellent job with this character making this movie very interesting and funny as well. Lots of special effects and action involved, which I loved and well, the rest you probably know by now unless, like me, you’ve been procrastinating and haven’t seen it yet. If not, it’s a MUST see! (Trying out my movie reviewer lingo)

Well, that’s all for now. Until mañana people….that is unless I get hit with some inspiration and decide to grace you with yet another post??

Book Review

I’ve just finished listening to this on audiobook and have lots of great things to say about it. First off, I just can’t imagine any person in the world who wouldn’t or doesn’t like Ellen. She’s hilarious!!! The book had me and my kids cracking up whenever we went for a drive. Just like she mentions in the book there was a little something for everyone. She had lots of fun things to talk about with content for adults, teens and young kids. In the PDF she even includes coloring pages! She’s great, she thinks of everything. My oldest son even asked me while we were listening, “Mom, is she rich?” and I responded, “Relatively, she’s very famous.” He then went on to say, “She sounds like a regular person, not like someone who’s rich and snobby.” I thought that was a great compliment to her and hope that when I’m rich the same can be said about me.

Any who, after listening to all 3 discs (relatively small book I guess) she has really inspired me to lighten up, love your life and even piqued my interest in writing. I mean, come on, she has some chapters in this book that don’t even amount to a full sentence but was still funny as hell. Half the time I was thinking, “This is considered a book? I can do this! I think…” I know I don’t currently have the influence that she has and don’t know nearly as much people but I have faith in myself and know that there’s a place in this world for me.

As much as I love to read and write, I wouldn’t be too sure what to write about but that won’t shake my faith. All in all, though a quick read, it really packed a punch and made me laugh all the way through. I think its worth reading if you want a good laugh.
