A Snowy Oscars

The saga of no TV continues, and I think if the Direct TV guys don't show up today, I'll have to send hubs to a hotel.

After church yesterday, he went on a mission to find some rabbit ears so I could watch the Oscars last night. He finally found some at the third store he visited. So I hooked them up to the small TV in the kitchen last night and got pretty good reception. Deciding it would be much more comfortable to lay in my comfy bed and watch, I moved the ears upstairs, and the reception wasn't quite as good, but at least I had somewhat of a picture.

When awards season comes around, my BFF and I always watch the shows together pratically on the phone every other minute. Before we found the rabbit ears, I had to call her and break the news that I may not be watching the Oscars. Her response, "Girl, you better get that fixed or I'm breaking up with you." Then she said, "I guess we can hook up our web cam and stream us watching the Oscars and you can watch us watching." huh?

Luckily, I had the ears, and we were able to compare notes during the show. I told her I just had to pretend the Oscars were being held in the snow this year. To sum up my thoughts: Loved Hugh Jackman, no one blew me away as far as attire and thought Kate Winslet's speech was great. Hubs forgets this ritual each year and said, "Who the heck keeps calling here...I told him to roll over and go back to sleep."


  1. I agree, no one blew me away either! We were up way too late to see Slumdog win practically everything! That number with Hugh and Beyonce was amazing, though!

  2. I'm glad you were able to watch it. Bunny ears aren't THAT bad...

  3. What a fun ritual! :) I'm sorry about your TV - such a pain!

  4. That's a really sweet husband! Love the blog!

  5. Love your header. Too cute!

Come On Get Happi with Happikins™

One of my girlfriends is a fabulous entrepreneur with several successful businesses under her belt. Her most recent endeavor reaches past general consumerism and takes a creative and fun approach to the impact we make on the environment.

Meet Happikins: There are 18,760 pounds of unnecessary lunchtime waste generated by the average elementary school each year. Paper napkins contribute to this waste — and they're also a drain on expenses. Did you know most kids use $200 worth of paper napkins a year?
Happikins are reusable cloth napkins designed specifically for kids. They can even be used as place mats for children who have food allergies. Happikins™ are a fun and easy way to teach your child the importance of making smart environmental choices. Oh, and wiping the crud off the corners of their mouths. You can choose from 3 sets of Happikins:
Each set of Happikins comes with five napkins and a durable pouch that makes a nice home for the napkins and fits nicely in a lunchbox. You can ev…

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …
