COMBO DEAL 30 days day 12-13

Day 12--Something you NEVER get compliments on.

My stunning appearance. I tend to be a t-shirt and jeans kind of girl. i don't do make up, I don't do dress up. and I don't spend extended time on my hair. I'm LAID BACK.

P.S. Mr. Lego said i HAVE to mention that HE compliments me on my STUNNING appearance and particular body parts. CLASSY HUN!

Day 13--- A Band that got me through some stuff (write a letter)

Dear Nirvana,
Thanks for making Jr. High not suck. Without your loud angry music I could have very easily gone over to the dark side. Dear god, I could have become a HUGE Backstreet Boy's fan. Oh man. I would have HATED me if that happen. So Thank you. Thank you for your wonderful rendition of The man who sold the world, thank you for Heart Shaped Box, Rape Me, About a Girl, Breed, Come as you are, and everything.

30 days of truth day 10

Day 10- Someone you wish you could let go, or didn't know at all.

30 days of truth day 9

Day 9- Someone you didn't want to let go over but they just drifted away.

I'm sure we all know a few of those people. I have a few of those people, the ones i figured I would know forever but then after awhile life happen and the next thing i knew I hadn't spoken or heard from them in Months. that turned into years, and here we are.....strangers. I have a person like that. My friend Chef Brownie from high school. I was maid of honor in her wedding. Flew from Pittsburgh to Mississippi to be there for the big day. And now flash forward five years.....we haven't spoken in over a year.

After high school she went to culinary school and then interned in a Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi (yes i just did the little song in my head to make sure I spelled that state correctly). WE emailed, wrote letters, sent gifts via the Postal Service, and finally when she got married I flew down to stand next to her. But then life happen. I graduated, started looking for a job, made a few new friends closer to home, and she went on with her life. Soon we were talking every few months....then every 6-8 months, then on birthdays and holidays only. Until i called to wish her a happy birthday/ anniversary and she informed....she was DIVORCED.

Now we never talk. It's not either of our the same time it's both our faults. I never call. She never calls. We just drifted apart.

30 days of truth day 8

Day 8- Someone who made your life hell or treated you like shit.

Well definitely Mr. Ship. He was a real D-Bag with a super big extra bold capital D. What a jerk. He toyed with me, drug it all on WAY to LONG. and in the end. Figured he was to good for ME and kicked ME to the curb. And if you knew Mr. Ship you would see he isn't to GOOD for anyone...let alone ME! But I'm not bitter.....not at all. Gee Thanks Mr. Ship! You were a real pal. So imagine how NOT THRILLED I was when I showed up with the New Boyfriend at my cousins cook out to find Mr. Ship there. uhm......could you have stared a bit more creep. Well how do you like those Apples JERK!

I wish that was the only person.....alas it. is. not. The person who goes along with my post about forgiving myself ranks right up there with Mr. Ship. And since I wont even tell you what I need to forgive myself for you know it's bad and HE'S WORSE. :(

30 days of truth day 7

Day 7----Someone who has made your life worth living for.

When i moved home for college 5+ years ago it wasn't how shall we say........a bright point in my life. I pretty much hated my life, myself and most of the people around me. I was moving back to a town I NEVER planned on moving back to. I didn't have a job or ANY prospects. My boyfriend had just dumped me for "ruining his life", and i was moving back in with my parents, who TRIED to be understanding.. Yeah not a high point in my life. The only high point was being back in York made it much easier to be a part of my little cousins, and my nephew's life. I was there when Jessica and Rebbeca got on the bus their first day of kindergarten. I was there when Kanyon learned how to swim and ride a bike. I hosted (and still do) sleepovers for the 3 of them so they will be as close as I am with their parents. Without these 3 I would have been completely lost when i moved back here.I don't have kids. Not yet at least. Hopefully someday I will, but for now I'm content to spend time and spoil the children in my life.

Adventures in Legos

So Mr. Lego and I drove 2 1/2 hours to the King of Prussia mall near Philly yesterday to spend the day.....and go to the LEGO STORE. You see Mr. Lego......well likes Legos (hence the name). sure, he'll say the legos are for his son.......but we know better don't we. i do have to say that the lego store was a word.....COOL. I was pleasantly surprised. they had tons of displays.

Now if you are anything like me you remember when making a lego house with doors and windows was "high tech", not anymore. It's CRAZY the stuff they have. CRAZY!!!! Like the $100 space shuttle. WOW. so while Mr. lego was enthralled with the Lego wall where you could fill a bucket with legos off the whole for $15.

Huge wall of tons of Legos to choose from. all sizes, colors, and wheels to.

Mr. Lego and the BIG LEGO!

30 days of truth day 6

Day 6----Something you hope you never have to do.

I hope I never have to make the choice to keep someone on or take someone off life support. That would be the worst choice to have to make. to decide if it's your feelings you are following the wishes of someone else. i couldn't imagine.

30 Days of truth Day 5

Day 5----Something you want to do in your life.

I would really like to go to visit the Biltmore Estate . I think it's AMAZING!

30 ays of Truth Day- Day 4

Day 4--Something you have to forgive someone for.

hmmm........this one is a bit harder. Fortunately (or unfortunately for this prompt) I'm not currently in conflict with anyone. I guess I could say i need to forgive Mr. Ship for making me feel so bad for SO LONG........but I'm actually pretty over that, now.

Something I need to forgive someone for? I need to forgive myself for eating that delicious piece of cheese cake last night......that sure isn't helping my diet.

DAY 1 - Something I hate about myself
Oh man do you have all day? Why are we so hard on our selves. I can think of a MILLION things i hate about myself.......well maybe not a million I'm not that self adsorbed. At least i try not to be. If i had to pick just one thing I Hate about myself ABOVE all else........I would have to say I hate how much I'm like my DAD in some ways. Looks it's not all bad. My dad is great....I've picked up some really great stuff from him. My ability to picture things in my head and turn them into something. I visualized our Pacman costumes last year and then constructed them out of cardboard, plastic and paper. And the ROCKED! I have A GREAT sense of direction. But I've got a few bad traits from my Dad. I'm very SHORT tempered. I don't have patients for some people. I understand things quickly so when someone else doesn't seem "to get it" I get very frustrated with them.

I wish I wasn't so short tempered because I feel bad after I fly off the handle about something so stupid.................I usually chalk it up to PMS. :)

And she's off...............

So Big Brother bought my nephew a a motor bike. Sad story actually. No he didn't get hurt, or anything crazy like that. He can't grip the breaks on the handle he can't ride it. His hands are to small. I feel bad for him. But..........................

At least I can grip the breaks! ZOOM ZOOM!

SIGN ME UP! So preggers, and Julie and i went last week. It was nice, since we haven't logged much girl time" what with preggers going back to school and raising her 15 month old, Julie with her busy life at the family business and her dogs, and then there's me...............ME who is notorious for NOT having ANYTHING to occupied my time.......I've been busy. With my new BOYFRIEND. Yeah he's my's official. We had the "talk" which I wasn't sure how it was supposed to go since the last time i had the "talk" it involved a note and the words "Do you want to be my YES or NO." So i did my best......and by best I mean tried to not act like an idiot. I only cracked one joke about "so now you have to give me your letter man jacket so i can wear it to lunch" oh yeah and this i guess it was 2 jokes..."Does this mean i get to wear your class ring on a chain around my neck". See i didn't do to BAD.Anyways...back to my crab story. So the 3 of us went and had crabs Tuesday night....and they were tasty. BUT, they came with a whole BUNCH of rules. Please refer to the picture for details.

WOW. That's a lot of things to keep straight. But we did ok. No one kicked us out or anything at least.
