I Want An Oscar... bag...

Seriously, have you seen the list of the awesomeness that the actors at the Oscars receive? It's valued at more than $75,000 and I could get much more joy out of it than the actors in Hollywood making millions a year!

Let me tell you what I'd do with the Oscar Swag:

- My husband and I would use the Maldives trip to celebrate our upcoming 10 year anniversary. We never really got to have an appropriate honeymoon because we were married September 22, 2001, right after the attacks on the World Trade Center. And guess where our one week honeymoon was supposed to take place? You guessed it - New York City! But we ended up having to cancel and just went to the beach for a week instead. How awesome would this trip be for our 10 year celebration?

- I'd use all of the skincare and fitness products to get me into shape and healthy - one of my goals for 2011!

- But I would give the fitness retreat to my bestie. She's having a baby in March and I know one of her priorities is to get back in shape ASAP. This would give her a great start.

- I'd send my mom and dad to Belieze. They need some time together.

- I'd pamper my crazy puppy Lucy and my neurotic kitty Reese!

- And I'd auction the Kim Kardashian watch on eBay and give the money I make to my church! You can't say no to that generosity, Dear Oscars!!!!

And yes, that is my head on Reese Witherspoon's body. Gotta love Photoshop.

But really, I can't wait for them to come on Sunday - love Oscar day!!!

  1. Let me encourage you not to leave your desires as mere wishes. Plan on how you can afford a vacation getaway even if its just a three day weekend escape. It is achieveable no matter your income.

    Many travel agents and cruise have payment plans or you can visit on the "cheaper' times of the year.

    Start today, plan for that honeymoon you never had. Get a big jar, label it...MY HONEYMOON/ ANNIVERSARY SAVING. Drop your change for a year and go next year.

    May the Lord give you the desires of your heart.

  2. Oh my word wouldnt that be absolutely wonderful! I only dream of such a thing. You have a fabulous blog! I am your newest follower!


  3. Hi Wendy! Cute post! I'd love to win the Oscar Swag Bag too! :) Hey, I commented back on my site to let you know everyone was invited to the weekend. It was on my blog linking to the registration and we all twittered about it and even gave away two tickets. Maybe you can catch us next year. Any time you see something you are interested in, just let me know. All the best.

  4. You look marvelous with that Oscar my friend... and your gown.. Is it Vera Wang? Wow! Amazing list. And to think I get excited at the freebies in my clinique bonus time bag.

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

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 …

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'…
