Momma said, “You’re going to be home for Christmas.” LOL!

Well, my Mom is the matriarch of the family.  When she speaks, not only do you listen, but most times e.g. 99.9% of the time, you follow said instructions or face the consequences.  Keep in mind that my Mom’s side of the family does not believe that there is a limit to the age that … Continue reading

Sigh . . . time shows you what you’ve done wrong

Remember, when I thought I had left my phone in Indianapolis?  Well, it turns out that I didn’t.  I was a bad girl.  As a result, after stalking AirTran as well as the Indianapolis airport lost and found, I finally gave up the ghost and paid for a replacement phone.  I installed what I thought … Continue reading

Cirque de Soleil with Mom, Terri, George, and Rebekkah

There are times that you have an opportunity to do something amazing with amazing friends & family.  Monday, December 26, 2011 was one of those days.  Terri had 2 tickets available to go to the La Nouba Cirque de Soleil show over at Disney.  I quickly raised my checkbook and signed up with my Mom and … Continue reading

This is how we do it . . .

One of the things that we have made into a tradition is taking my nieces and nephews out dancing to a club when they turn 18.  It’s a way to celebrate, “You’re close to being out on your own!  YEAH for your parents!”  ROTFL!  I will never forget the first time we went out. Since … Continue reading

Why did I forget my iPhone in Indy?

Sad but true, this isn’t my first time forgetting my cell phone on a trip.  The other time was when I was meeting my girlfriends from college in Atlanta for one of our annual girls trips.  I forgot my Blackberry.  I didn’t have a laptop or other wireless device.  As a result, I ended up … Continue reading

Party like a rock star! Not!

Friday was our company holiday celebration.  I learned 2 things.  Thou shalt not dance with 4 inch heels.  Thou shalt not drink a single alcoholic drink in Indianapolis.  My ankle and my body’s metabolism have spoken. Mind you, I did purchase the Dr. Scholl’s Fast Flats that I’ve already broke out at two weddings in … Continue reading

Black Friday . . . I love you man!!!!

When you can walk out of a store and legally take a bag full of merchandise for a mere fraction of what it normally would cost retail, the day is a good day.  Kris & I started in Toys R Us for the madness and navigated our way to Macy’s.  I headed to Kohl’s solo … Continue reading

Thanksgiving at the Duncan’s

My friend Kris invited me into her home with her family (Husband:  David, Daughter:  Zoe, Dog:  Tinkerbell, Cat: Oscar, and Toad:  Lola).  It was one of the funniest Thanksgivings that I’ve had in a very long time.  There were the moments where we simply were laughing so hard we cried, farted, or hurt ourselves.  The … Continue reading
