224 bloggy posts later and I'm still here......and so are you!!! (Thanks! you guys are the best!)
Before I started blogging, I was following a friend of mine. It was fun to read what was going on in her life. It was also fun thinking about putting together my very own blog. But then I got to thinking....
"What could I possibly write about?",
"Would it be interesting enough?",
"Would I be wasting my time sitting, looking at the monitor pondering what would be the next thing I would say?"
Then I was thinking....
"This would be a great way to have friends and family keep up with my life."
Well there you have it, I had decided to go ahead and do this so all my family and friends who are always wondering how things are going, can just pop in and read instead of me having to send out separate personalized emails. Generic? Maybe. Genius? I think so!
In the end, it wasn't my family and friends reading it so much, it was all of YOU!
I never thought so many people would be interested in hearing what I had to say. Sure, maybe I don't have 50, 100 or even 2,000 follower's, but the ones I do have I am truly grateful for. I've even noticed a couple newbies here today!! Thanks ladies! ;o)
So anyways, I hope you all enjoy what I bring to the blogosphere in the coming year! Thanks again for sticking by me!

2. My Canon Digital SLR camera
Of course, right?! Gotta have this in order to snap all those memorable moments of vacations and such!!
3. My VS bathing suit
(That almost got forgotten about in Vegas)
This is the first bathing suit since losing the weight that I actually feel decent looking in. I love it!!
4. Hot Pink Nail Polish
Nothing goes better than summer, a tan and HOT PINK nail polish!
Although, I do use this cheap N.Y.C. brand, it does the trick! It's quick and easy to put on, which is why I love it so much.
Gotta have my Netflix account! I love to watch my movies. However, during the summer days when my daughter was on summer break, it was mostly "kid friendly" movies we were watching or none at all. Now that she is back in school, summer is still here, we're back on track!
I would seriously not survive the summer if I didn't have my shorts! Being a California girl, this is truly a must have! It just gets way to hot where I live.
7. My Car
What are you your summer "must-have's"?

Okay, now you may be asking yourself why on earth would I be so HAPPY to be here at work, the place I tend to complain about, right? Two little letters......A/C!! Oh....and because the boss isn't here today and Wednesday (doing the happy dance!!). I just spent my weekend in hell at home, no pun intended. It's been really HOT out here, 100's and what happens? My A/C decides to go out. My husband tried looking up on the internet what could be the problem and even opened it up to see if he could see if he could fix it or even if there was a loose connection cause it would start to work if we hit it really hard but it only worked for a short time before stopping again. Since he had it opened up, he decided to clean off the dirt hoping that maybe it would help from possible over heating. In the end though, it wouldn't work for us.
So today, my hubby has made an appointment to have the A/C guys come out and hopfully, it won't cost us an arm and a leg. Otherwise, we'll be without an A/C for the rest of the summer which will NOT be a good thing.
Also going on, I know I had posted about this a few months ago but I feel I need to get the word out again. I know MckMama already has a lot of followers but for those of you who don't know the story about her little boy, Stellan, he needs prayers right now cause he is a very sick little boy. Please keep them in your prayers as they can use all the prayers they can get right now.
Yep, my poor husband rented Beethoven's Big Break for his birthday. LOL! Have we watched it yet? Nope! Should have just rented what he wanted. Okay, I think maybe my husband got jipped this year! I tried to go do something fun but he refused.
Oh, and since I just mentioned and not to toot my own horn but this Friday is my birthday!! Woo Hoo! Yes, I'm big about my birthday! It's my day. My one day to do whatever I like and since it is in the summer, I never had to go to school on that day nor have I had to work on this special day..lol!
Or maybe even this super cute tank top from No Fear
We'll see. Maybe I'll get jipped this year too. I doubt it though cause when we went and saw this tank top yesterday, my hubby whispered in my daughter's ear something after he said "we'll see. Your birthday is a few days away." Hmmm? I think maybe it's in the bag!
But hey, I'm gonna be spending the first 6 hrs of mine by myself cause my husband has to work and my noodle is in school.
Well, since I just wrote a book, I better get back to work now. ;O)

Anyways, a few weeks ago we saw a few big RV looking vehicles and trucks and such there in the parking lot. We were quite curious I'm sure you can imagine. Well, the day after the trucks left, my husband read in the local newspaper that Round Table Pizza was making a new commercial and since our Round Table Pizza is brand new, they used our location. How cool is that?! The newspaper said it would be released in a couple weeks.
At home this weekend, my husband and I were watching TV when we noticed the new commercial and sure enough, it's our Round Table!! :D I'm so excited! I've walked through those doors, I've touched that counter, I've eaten there!! *giddy laugh* Hey, don't make fun of me! Let me just enjoy my moment here! ;O)
Anyways, you can see the new commercials, "Toppingless" & "Quarters" here.

Most people when they go to work have to watch there language, right? Okay, unless maybe you work out on a construction site or something similiar. For those of us that work in an office environment would think to watch our mouths. It's unprofessional. We have clients to uphold an image to. I have always thought this way as I'm sure most of us have.
However, at my current job, I don't! That's right people, my boss is one that just blurts out what he is feeling. It is quite humerous at times too.
Mind you, I've had quite the potty mouth for many years cause my dad would always curse in front of my brother and I while growing up. He worked on construction sites so every other word out of his mouth was "F" this, "F" that. I actually didn't curse in front of my parents though for the longest time. I would spell the bad word out. lol
Since having a child though, I've been working on that potty mouth of mine. I don't want to teach such bad habits to my child. Also, it's just not feminine coming from a girl's mouth anyways. Sure, there are worse things as my boss says but come on, if I can teach my child to have good manners and respect, I prefer to do so! I'm still a work in progress though.
So anyways, I was here at work this morning and I, without noticing because it's become the norm for me, I said "I'm getting fricken irritated" and my boss says "Just say FUCK, would ya. Go ahead and say G**damn motherfucker." (Alrighty then, Mr. Boss man...lol!) However, I at that moment instantly jumped in and said that I REFUSE to say the Lord's name in vain! I feel it's disrepectful and since I'm religious, I cringe everytime someone says that. Aside from that though, geez....I can curse all I want, working in an office and not get into trouble! In fact, he told me that I need to curse cause it relieves pissed off tension and it's better to let it out then hold it in. Well, I have to agree with that but I'm trying it in my own way.
Let's see how this works.....
Instead of: Fucken Asshole......I can say: Fricken A-hole
Instead of: Bitch.....I can say: B-I-T-C-H (spelling it out)
Instead of: Oh Shit.....I can say: Oh Shoot
Instead of: Damn it.....I can say: Doggone it
Instead of: Fuck You!.....I can say: Frick You!
Instead of: You Fucken Shit head.....I can say: You Fricken shooter pooter head!!
What do you think? Does it have the same ring?? ;O)

YoVille. This game allows you to decorate your apartment, check into work, buy furniture, clothes, etc and then purchase houses. It's fun!
And then Farm Town allows you to build a farm and plant crops and then harvest them or hire other farmers to harvest for you.
There are a couple others that are similar. I do hope this shall pass.....SOON! It's an addiction that I wish I never started! (lol) In fact, I vow to do more with my child before her summer vacation is over (14 more days). Oh boy, the more I type this, the more I feel like crap! Let's see, what have we done already this summer? Hopefully this will make me feel better.
- Birthday party
- Six Flags with friend
- Play date with friend at their house
- Play date with another friend at Chuck E. Cheese
- Went for a bike ride.
Here's my "to do" list:
- Play date in the works for Tuesday (tomorrow).
- Go pick cherries at a local farm. (I figure since I like "harvesting" on my game above, why not do the real thing, right?!)
- Do another bike ride
- Maybe see a movie
- Maybe go to Scandia or Boomers (mini-golf places)
- Hit Six Flags again.
Perhaps it's just me, you know, thinking I'm on the computer too much. This looks like a lot of stuff, right?
In other news, this month is a special month to me. One, my husband's birthday is this month, July 25th. And then two, my birthday is 6 days after his. That's right ladies (or gents), I will officially be in my mid-30's! The big 3-5! *gasp*
One one hand, I feel okay about it because I was told one day recently that I looked too young to have a 7 yr old. (awww....how sweet!) but then on the other hand, in 5 more years and I'll be 40! Oh. My. Gosh! How the heck did that happen? I sure in the heck don't feel my age. I just hope I continue to look (so they say) and feel younger as I get older!
This past 4th of July, the three of us and my SIL went camping. I had fun.....sort of. Leave one person in particular out of the equation and I had a fabulous time. I'll leave that one alone. I think you can figure it out on your own, right?! I didn't even take my camera so I can't even show you any highlights of the trip. We did take our dog though which was a nice change! I'm sure he was happy too.
Other than that, not much going on here. I haven't even been taking pictures lately. I'm really slacking off here. What the heck, right?! ME not taking pictures? What's wrong with me? lol
Well, that's about it for now. I promise not to be too long next time. I'll go take pictures this week and pay attention to the little silly things that are said. Perhaps that will give me something to write about..lol!
