This Weeks Questions:

1. 5 items you can't live without on a daily basis(water, food, shelter, and clothes dont count)

I would have to say my computer, my books, a ponytail holder, my car and a cold Mt. Dew in the morning!

3. Something you'd like to accomplish before the end of 2012

I would like to get my business better established.

5. What do you wish people knew about you without you having to tell them?
Just because I am happy 99% of the time doesn't mean that I don't have a bad day and need a good friend too!

It's OK...

Its Ok Thursdays

It's OK to stay in your jammies all day because you feel like it.

It's OK to let the housework wait because you have had a extremely busy month and you don't feel like doing a damn thing!

It's OK to cringe every time the phone rings and then look at the caller ID to decide you just don't want to talk to anyone today!

It's OK to be glad the kids are back in school!

It's OK to be scared of going on that adventure, whatever it may be because you are terrified it won't be what you expected.

It's OK to ask a friend for help because your brain just decides that it doesn't want to do anything thinking!

My Happy List...

I am getting back into blogging...Finally! So what a better way to start then to let everyone know what makes me happy! So head on over to Mamarazzi to link up!


What makes me happy right now is:

* My boys being in school!

D started 3rd grade this year and is loving his teacher and school. He also has a thing for a girl sitting right in front of him, so much so that he has told me about what she wears each day! It is a wonder he has good grades with all the time he spends checking her out each day.

Monkey started Kindergarten this year and he is having more trouble than D with adjusting to school but is getting better. Last week he was crying and according to the teacher 5 girls surrounded him to give him hugs and tell him it would be ok. He later told me that it was "creepy" and said he will not cry anymore because he doesn't want girls around him.

It makes me happy when I get to bake and make all sorts of yummy goodies for my friends and clients. Like the gender reveal cake posted below

It makes me happy to get to lay in the tub with a cold drink and a great book and just soak away all my worries.

It makes me happy to spend time with my family and friends who keep me sane and level headed in this crazy life.

I Love Me Monday!

I LOVE ME MONDAY is just that, loving who you are!
Step out from behind the camera and embrace your beauty!

3 questions are listed below to answer, please include them with your self portrait.


1. What is one thing you always seem to forget and want to punch yourself for it? I always seem to forget my sunglasses when I am not just driving. The sun here in Arizona is like living on the surface of the damn sun and too bright and blinding to be without them. You would think the brightness would make me remember? Nope, I'm special like that!

2. If you could spend 15 minutes with any person of your past, present, living or deceased who would you choose? I would choose to spend it with my best girlfriends. They always make me laugh and make sure I stay in a happy mood. No sad times with my best hookers!

3. What's your favorite way to wake up? To a quiet peaceful house on my own terms which means no alarm clocks or kids fighting over who gets the last of the damn Fruit Loops! Hey! Who said I had to be realistic?

This was taken a while back. I look like ass as the present moment so this one will have to do!

Bad Blogger

OK...I admit it. I am a bad blogger. I can't ever come up with anything creative to post and just think to myself...who would want to read anything I write? So instead, I just don't post. Well new year means new goals so I think one of my goals will be to get better about blogging. Regardless if it is just a link up or if it is a random post about my family or friends...I gotta get better about this if I ever want to make a true go of it.

I have some friends that are fantastic bloggers and I find myself reading their blogs and shaking my head and totally agreeing with what they say and feeling that I totally relate but I can't seem to formulate the words to come up with my own post without hijacking their ideas...even if we are very similar.

So let's just hope that this year I can make a go of it!

Behind the Mask

A few weeks ago I received this book by David Gelber M.D. called Behind the Mask.

It is a book written to give us (the patient) a glimpse into the life and mind of a surgeon. Have you ever been at a doctors appointment and wondered why the doctor is so quick with you? Have you ever wondered what really goes on in your doctors mind? If so this book is a must read for you.

I started reading it and finished it within 24 hours. I found myself shaking my head in understanding at the things that Dr. Gelber says. He writes so that you understand what he is thinking before, during and after surgery. It helps you to understand why surgeons make the choices that they make. I actually learned quite a bit from this book and the next time I have to see a doctor I will understand them a little bit more thanks to this book.

Disclaimer: I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinions of it.

Stay tuned for my next review on my next book.
