Did I ever tell you that I worked as a waitress during college? It was hard work, but fun. I loved the interaction with the customers (most of them, anyway) and I got plenty of fodder for funny stories. (Someday I’ll have to tell you about the time I got salad dressing on a customer’s […]
The Great Halloween Party Wrap Up! (2012 edition)
Saturday night we had our third annual Halloween Party. Medusa & Perseus (except it wasn’t Perseus’ night…Medusa turned him to stone.) We invite friends to come in costume and ask them to BYOB and to bring a dish of some kind to share on the buffet table. I used to try to do everything myself […]
A big evening out (for a great cause) at the Diamond and Pearl Ball.
My camera and my laptop have decided not to speak to each other at the moment. As a result, I can’t share a couple of Halloween projects I am currently working on. So I decided to share a charity event that HH and I attended recently. My BFF is the National Spokesperson for the […]
A county fair… bad food, bad prizes and good fun.
Did you go to a county fair this summer? My neighbor Melissa said in an Instagram upload, that a county fair is the Olympics of People Watching. Oh, amen to that. It’s also the Olympics of Fried Food. It’s also the home of giant food… All. Kinds. Of. Wrong. And if you’re going to eat […]
Do you play bunco?
I am in a bunco group and last Friday was my turn to host the game at my house. All last week was spent on fun projects gearing up to have some of my favorite ladies over. I revamped my chandelier and made a no-sew cord cover, upcycled some old wine bottles to create etched […]
Speech & Debate: the MVP of my education.
We all have things about us that aren’t common knowledge. Maybe because they’re trivial (I don’t like vegetables….) maybe because they’re stupid (I am afraid of opening those pressurized cans of Pillsbury biscuits…) but sometimes it is simply because it doesn’t come up in everyday conversation or it’s old news. Did I ever mention that […]
My favorite Christmas Tradition: a boat ride through Naples.
We have lots of family traditions this time of year, but one of my favorites is looking at the Christmas lights by boat. We live near a neighborhood in Long Beach, California called Naples. Naples is an island neighborhood, and in the center of the island is a loop of canals. Each year we rent […]
The Great Halloween Party Wrap Up (2011 edition)
I love hosting parties and dinners. I love getting ready for them and creating special little details. I love my friends and family so, so much, and I’d really like to be able to say that all those little details are for them and for them only… but that wouldn’t be completely true. Creating the […]
It’s my blog and I’ll post all the graduation pictures I want to.
My internet was down for two days… It allowed me to ponder the fact that I have a child who is now a high school graduate. Where does the time go? Isn’t he handsome!!!??? It was a big class (786 students) most of whom seemed to be award winning, honor roll-making, superb young adults. Amazing. […]
A phone call… from Heaven. (There is no other explanation.)
Do you believe in life after death? In God? Do you think you can get a phone call from heaven?
