I thought this would be a cool Throwback for today, and it also gets me ready for the 13th Wedding Anniversary to my honey Ted. Officially it's Monday (6/30). We will celebrate 13 years being married, but we were together for 9 years before that. 22 years.. WOW! We of course were around 10 when we got together.. LOL! What I value about having all these years together w/ Ted and hopefully many more is that besides being my hubby & Loverboy, Ted is my BEST FRIEND! We have gone through a lot together, and I'm thankful to have him in my life. Last November my Daddy Maurice passed away, my Mom had passed about 12 years ago, and since I'm the only child, I could easily feel alone since my immediate family is with me in spirit. Ted makes sure I don't feel that way. He's my family, and for that I'm grateful.
Happy Anniversary coming (6/30) to my Hubby Ted, LoverBoy & Best Friend! LOVE YOU JUST THE WAY YOU ARE... This was also our 1st dance song. This song was played first, so I guess technically this was our 1st dance song.. Great for today too! #TBT,...
Take each day you have as a blessing to be w/ the ones you LOVE.
I started my workday wet. Mama Nature certainly gave the South ATX area a BIG DRINK! While I'm trying to dry off in the COLD AC, which I'm thankful for most of the time, but right now.. BBBBRRRR.. While I'm warming up a bit, this song popped in my head. Have a great Wednesday. Be prepared for weird popup downpours/showers throughout the day. Be sure to wear clothing that will dry quick, that's a helpful suggestion.
So I got my 1st Summer Skeeter bites, in my home, over the weekend. I'm for sure a 'Mosquito Magnet'. A story came out that points out some things that may cause the 'Magnetic Connection'. Click here for the entire list.
Here are a few of the top things that seem to attract the skeeters...
1.) Blood type O received double the amount of bites compared to Type A and Type B was in the middle.
2.) Pregnant/ Daily exercisers.. If you exercise daily, or perhaps you are pregnant, your body temp is higher which seems to attract the skeeters
3.) 12 oz of Beer in your system can cause the attraction. Apparantly Skeeters like BEER!
4.) 85% genetics. Your genes seem to egg on the skeeters
5.) Colors that make you stand out can cause more skeeters to rush to you.
Stay strong my 'Mosquito Magnets Sisters & Brothers, it looks like we are going to have an itchy summer a head. Benedryl Spray works pretty well for the itches! Keep an ear out for 'West Nile' reports too.
The beginning of the summer is the best time to adopt a pet. The kids are out of school, and the family has plenty of time to acclimate their new family member. Plus, what’s more fun than taking a dog to the lake or napping with a cat on the couch?!
Now through June 30th there are adoption specials happening!
Happy Friday! I was checking my Facebook page and I noticed my friend Patti in Omaha, NE did something so Wonderful. I wanted to share. She lives in the city I grew up in, Omaha, NE. You probably heard about all the tornados that have been popping up in Nebraska. On her day off, she went to Pilger, NE to help the folks who got pounded by the Twin Tornadoes earlier in the week. The whole town is pretty much wiped out. My friend Patti is so amazing helping out strangers because they need it. I'm honored to be her friend, and so proud of the many things she does to help others.
. Click here to check out some of the photos she took while she was there. Be sure to count your blessings for your family and friends you have in your lives! Give them EXTRA HUGS!
I've experienced Patti's BIG HEART 1st hand when my Daddy passed away last November. She dropped by the hospital/hospice just about everyday, to the day he passed, to be there for support. She is truly a remarkable woman! I'm honored to know her and have her friendship! PATTI ROCKS!
Okay Go has a new album coming out October 14th 'Hungry Ghosts'. 1st single 'Here's The Writing On The Wall'. Of course in Okay Go style they have another cool creative video. Songs is pretty cool too! What do you think?
Stuck in traffic this morning a question popped in my head. If I could pick a talent I wish I could do, it would be this! Picking up a guitar and being able to RIP IT UP & ROCK IT just like Orianthi's doing w/ Steve V.
When I first saw the video of the 'Twin Tornadoes' that leveled most of Pilger, NE and hit surrounding areas HARD, it reminds me of a re-occurring dream I have had since I was a child. Two, sometimes three tornadoes chasing me around. I wake up before I get caught. For sure means, I'm not a fan of tornadoes. I grew up in Omaha, NE, and I remember when I was 5 there was a tornadoe that went over my house. My mom had me and my friend in the basement. She said we can play fort w/ the couches turned over us. We got lucky the tornadoe didn't hit our home/neighborhood, but the neighborhood right next to us, it wiped out many homes in a row. Tornadoes scare the crap out of me!
