How did that happen!

Hey all, I had full intentions of blogging all week and next thing I know its Friday, where did the week go!?!!?!?! Anywho, I wanted to share a song I absolutely love I love its a sad one but amazing none the less. You dont really have to watch the video it just is a picture of the singer. But the song, it is amazing. She was featured on So You Think You Can Dance and it has turned her dreams into reality. I have a feeling she is gonna be big soon!

Enjoy your weekend!

And all that Jazz


This weekend was Ken's birthday. He is a keep to himself, dont make it a big deal type of guy when it comes to birthdays. For the first time in our 10 year relationship I honored his wishes and there was no hoopla. Leila and I wished him a happy birthday and just made the day as laid back as possible. His birthday gift was making me eat a piece of spicy fish since he knows I dont like spice. Ah the things a girl will do for love. I love you Ken, I hope it was the best non-hoopla birthday you have ever had. Love you more today then yesterday but not as much as tomorrow.

feeling: exhausted but optimistic
weather: hot and muggy, got to love Wisconsin dog days of summer.

needing: a good kick in the butt
thinking: I need to see my chiro to get my back fixed
enjoying: all the family time we have been having
wondering: will Kenson EVER talk?

Ten Guilty Pleasures

1) reality TV. I hate that I love it, and love it I do.
2) peanut butter by the spoonful.
3) romantic comedies. I love all types of movies but these are my go-tos on a lazy weekend.
4) internet surfing. I spend way to much time doing this.
5) pedicures. Hardly ever get them but love them so much.
6) paper, I have WAY too much paper.
7) sushi dates with my BFF, kid free.
8) cheap cute jewelry.
9) shoes, preferably flats and kitten heals.
10) lazy Sundays.

A week of lists

so to get back in the swing of things I am going to do a week of lists. Please feel free to join me, especially if you have the summertime blogging block like I have been dealing with for a few weeks now. Stay tuned, it should be fun!
