I Know How He Feels...

After a week of moving and putting everything together... I'm exactly where Tom is:

oK... my new place is nothing like their's... but nothing makes me laugh harder than hearing him laugh at that point. And nothing is better than laughing that hard! Try to prove me wrong...

One Season and Holiday At A Time Please!

Sometimes I just don't understand... Well, that goes for a lot of things, but I have one in particular right now! ;)

How is it that we are seeing Halloween decorations IN AUGUST!!! For Pete's sake! It's not even fall yet and we're already seeing pumpkins and ghosts and sales on Halloween candy?!?

Don't get me wrong. I'm very excited for the fall to come. I love fall! It's my favorite season. Hurray for shorts and sweatshirt weather. Where there is a breeze that lightly blows your hair around and often you can smell rain in the air. I love it all! And I'm a HUGE fan of Halloween! If you've seen my decorations- you would know. Scary stories and music and movies... but no haunted houses please. I love it all.

But like everything, it has it's time and place. And August is not it. NOR is September. So don't think... "well there are only a few more days of August and then we can party!". NO NO NO! October 1st is soon enough. Halloween is the very last day of October, and I think we'll have enough time to celebrate during the month. 31 days to be exact.

So put away the leaves and get out the flip flops because Summer isn't over yet! Long live the Bermuda shorts!!! Woo hoo!

Fourth Friday Fellow

Today's Friday Fellow is an oldie, but a goldie! He's not old.... but he was really big when I was in high school/college and I haven't really seen him in too much lately. Once in awhile he's in a TV movie or starring as an extra on some show. And even as time goes by, he's still pretty dang cute! Some of you know him as Dylan McKay... but we all love and know him as

LUKE PERRY!!!!!!!!
High School:



Yes... I know he wasn't really those ages when he was in High School and College... but I also know that all you guys grew sideburns because of him and all you girls loved sideburns because of him! And who didn't love him in "Buffy: The Vampire Slayer"??? The original and BEST!!! :)

Tee hee hee!

A Little Of Me Here... A Little Over There

One of the down parts of moving is that for a couple of days you're whole life is in two parts. I have some of me still in Bountiful and a little bit in Salt Lake City. And the worst of it is... right now I'm pretty much ALL in boxes!

Just a few minutes ago I wanted to cut a hangnail. Simple really. Just get the nail clippers and done and done. The problem? I have NO idea where the nail clippers are??? I have a few boxes I THINK they are in... but is a hangnail worth the effort of digging and digging through everything? After days and days of packing and cleaning, I'm afraid the answer, at least for me, is no.

The good news is, after a long day of cleaning and packing, everything that should be in a box, basically is. And everything that should be cleaned, done and done. I still have a little vacuuming to do and a quick mop of the kitchen... but basically, old house is done! Yay! Tomorrow we are going to be focusing on starting to get the new house put together. I don't have a SINGLE box unpacked yet. Blast! But I think this is going to be the fun part. Now I can decide where I want everything to go. At least for me that's fun. Or at least it seems like it's going to be fun right now... Hmmmm... I'll let you know in a couple of days. :)

In other news... I think Kitty is getting suspicious that something is up. She's been fine the last few days, but today she was hissing up a little storm and yelling at me like she was pretty pissed at the world. She keeps walking around sniffing everything and giving me the evil eye. Don't worry though. Her bark is WAY worse than her bite. And she wouldn't DARE do anything to her mommy!!! I'm sure when it's bedtime she'll grudgingly climb up and cuddle.

For now... she's sniffing and I'm getting ready to watch something mindless... anyone have any suggestions of something wonderful I don't have to think about?

Yummy, Yummy Pie!

I would just like to give a shout-out to the yumminess that is pie! I love all kinds of pie. Really, pie and I are the greatest of friends. Tonight's love though is specifically being sent out to Hostess Pies. The company website says it all...

And I quote:

"There's nothing more American than apple pie, but millions of Americans would argue about their favorite flavor of Hostess Fruit Pies. Apple, cherry, pineapple, lemon, blackberry, strawberry, French apple - a trip to the snack cake aisle can be like visiting a country fruit stand.

Heat them up and let the fruit filled aroma fill the house. Put them out for dessert, serve them a la mode, or put a package in a lunch box - it's as easy as pie. However you serve them, they won't be around for long. No one can hold a Hostess Fruit Pie in their hands without making them disappear. "

They really are SO great!!! I cleaned and packed a lot today. I even got all my laundry done. And as a reward, I knew I deserved a pie. So even though I was ready to just stick at home for the night- off I went and got myself a yummy Hostess Cherry pie! How could I not?!?

If you're not familiar with these pies, or have forgotten how wonderful they really are... go and get yourself one right now! I know it's late- but you'll be so happy you did when you eat!

Three cheers for pie!

I'm A Wimp...

That's just the fact of the matter. I've never tried to change people's minds or convince them otherwise. I have teeny tiny arms that have no muscle. Popeye I am not! His lovely girlfriend Olive Oil would MUCH better describe me...

See those arms? It's like looking in a mirror!!! (Actually the whole body looks familiar... ) ;)

Now you're probably wondering why I'm bringing this all up? For those of you who don't know, I'm moving to the great city of Salt Lake. Woo hoo! Not that I don't love Bountiful, but it's time for a change. Nothing serious. Just looking for a new adventure.

Today I started on that move. I took over two Dwight size car-loads of stuff. (Dwight is a Ford Focus Hatchback... PS) As you know, that's not a TON of stuff. It's a pretty good amount, but you probably all would have been able to do 4 or 5 rounds with it. I could barely make it through the two. In fact, a third was in the schedule- but I really was TOO tired. My arms ached like they never have before! Or haven't in a long time.

Granted, there was a long way from my car to the apt door, AND I had two flights of stairs to go up! But again... for most of you, probably not such a big deal.

So I'm here to admit once again that I'm a wimp. I'm going to sign up with a gym in Salt Lake and maybe I'll start checking out the weight room?!? I don't want Madonna arms... but I'd like to be able to lift Kitty up without breaking a sweat! (I promise, that was a joke!!! I can SO lift up Kitty. I can!!!)

PS... the packing is going well and there are plans to move more tomorrow. I'll take a couple of pictures and show you the new place. It's pretty awesome. AND it has a balcony!!! Yay!!!!! (Kristyn- that was 5 exclamation points going out to you-know-who!)

One thing I know... I'll sleep VERY well tonight! I hope I can stay awake for TMZ!!!

More of My Musings

So I thought I would share another poem with you that I wrote. I'm not sure the exact date I did this, but it was in one of my poetry classes while going to SUU. Being as I graduated in April of 2001... I believe this was probably written in 1999 or 2000. It's just more silly fun, but I hope you like it. (I think I need to take another writing class. I forgot how fun this all was.)

** Remember- this is just a first or second draft. Nothing polished.***

Prince Charming will come and take you away,
At least growing up, that's what I heard them say.
There will be many frogs for you to kiss,
And perhaps some balls you wish you could miss.
Sometimes midnight will seem to come too soon,
Or you'll wish you could hear a much different tune.
Just remember it's not the shoes or the gown,
But wearing a smile and never a frown.
Then when you meet him it will all be done,
Trials, you'll remember, as being quite fun.

Some Scary Saturday Stuff

Sometimes work is a long day of whatever. And so you need to come home and enjoy yourself and think of nothing. Tonight is one of those nights...

SO... one of the best ways to enjoy yourself is silly videos. These are two of my favorites.

This first one was done by one of Jasen's friends...

This next one we just found on YouTube... but it's just as fun!

I love where imaginations can take you. And with my dreams... I really should get my imagination out there more. Perhaps soon in a post I'll tell you about one of my dreams. But for now, have a fun Saturday night and sleep well...

Friday Fellow the Third

This weeks fine Friday Fellow I love so much I named my car after him...

Ladies and gentlemen....


oK, my car is actually named Dwight, and I almost was going to have today's Friday Fellow be Dwight Shrute... because I really do love him so! You see, no one else out there goes after what he wants quite like Dwight. He's sort of my hero because he doesn't let anyone's thoughts or opinions sway him. He believes what he believes and he knows what he knows. He likes what he likes and he grows what he grows. (He just grows beets... but I wanted to rhyme. It was more fun!) Sure he gives into Micheal Scott WAY more than he should, but he's doing it with the best of heart. And shouldn't we really all be that way?!?

But as I said at the beginning... I've decided that I'm paying tribute to Rainn Wilson because he really is adorable! You know EXACTLY what I mean if you've seen him in any interviews. SO funny and actually, pretty darn cute.

I've always said that my favorite quality in someone is a sense of humor. If you can make them laugh, you've won my heart, lickety split. Rainn Wilson does that. He gets me laughing and then I have no option but to sigh.

Case in point... he was MILES above Josh Duhamel in the second "Transformers" movie!!! ;) oK... but he was cute!

So remember that boys! Maybe the way to your heart is through your stomach... but the way to our hearts is through laughter! Well at least for me...

Late night chats...

For the past week or so I've had some wonderful night-time chats with some very good friends of mine. There is something so great about chatting the night away. It's refreshing and pretty therapeutic. It's amazing what comes out once you've already got the chatting going on. Especially when it's long into the night and the crickets are chirping away. (Why is cricket chirping so relaxing?)

I almost feel more refreshed at 11:00pm after I've talked the night away than I do some mornings after a good night's sleep... Somehow the night helps the secrets come out and the friendships grow. I feel myself getting closer and closer to the person as the minutes tick by. And the memories that are made... I know it's such a cliche, but some of them really are priceless.

Thank you to my friends who let me tell them my secrets. And even more to those who trust me with their's. I once heard someone say that trust is harder to get than love. I fully believe and agree with that. So to you that I trust... you know I love you, but know that you have a place in my heart that not many see.

And now I'm done being sentimental... Sometimes you just have to! :)

Tuesday, August 18, 2009


One of my BFFs said I was slacking with my blogs...

Well my friend, and you know who you are, just wait till Thursday!!! Amazing times are ahead!

To you I give XOXO! :)

Seriously Brett...

Brett Favre!

What are you thinking?!? C'mon. Yes, we were all in wonder when you retired and then went and joined the Jets. A dumb move, but sometimes people second guess leaving. Of course, you could have gone back to Green Bay where you belong... but again, second guesses happen.

Now though... you have made the most idiotic move a football player could make. Seriously! The Vikings? Do you not have any sense of hometown pride??? You're going and playing for the enemy! Tsk tsk...
My heart is hurting, but I'll always love Green Bay. I'm sorry that you aren't going to part of that love anymore. The Brett Favre binder I carried through my school years at SUU... well, just another memory of good times in the past. Sigh...

GO GREENBAY!!!!!!!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh no! Oh no!

I know it's past Monday... but just barely. And really, I'm a firm believer that a day doesn't end till you fall asleep... So to those of you who work graveyards, it's not the next day till you go to bed... even if you go to bed at 9:00 in the morning. I used to work graveyards, so I can say that. :)

So it is after midnight, and I've had a very busy day of cleaning and chatting with friends. It's been great. Jimmy Fallon is playing shuffleboard with Ryan Reynolds right now... what could be better???

As I haven't given much thought to what I'm even saying or doing right now, I'd like to leave you with something to ponder. I've been doing some pondering lately... and I would like you to join me. So ponder this till my next entry (which will be tomorrow, Tuesday)...

How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?


Is laughter really the best medicine?


In all honesty... which path is better? The one less travelled or the one many people have followed or are already on?

A Pact

I'm moving at the end of August. I found a great apartment on Capitol Hill with a bathroom who's walls look like a quilt. It's small, but I love it, and I CAN'T wait to get moved in there. As goes with moving, I've begun the long, tedious project of packing. Within this is a lot of time going through stuff. Stuff I had forgotten I even owned having lived in my current residence for the last 5 1/2 years. Stuff I'm not even sure why I kept in the first place!!! Granted, it's been very fun looking and remembering some of my treasures. For instance, I forgot all the little knick-knacks I kept on my desk at Excel when I worked there. I just went through the box and found funny pictures we had made and put up on the wall. One where BP had recut a "Work and the Glory II" poster which originally said "Every dream has a price", but this one now said "Every price has a dream!". This is a fun story for Excellians everywhere... and I'll leave it with them to remember.

While there are quite a few things I love and am keeping, like I said earlier, there is TONS I have no idea why I have. And being that my new bachelorette pad (do girls have those???) is much smaller, stuff needs to be gotten rid of. Some of this is very therapeutic, and some is a little sad. But it's a time for new beginnings and changes. And getting rid of old junk is just what I need right now. Maybe getting rid of some physical junk will help me rid of some other stuff too. Nothing serious, but I just think it's time for a new view out my window. And this place has a balcony!!! Woo hoo! And really... Kitty needs a new backyard to look at!

So here's my pact. We'll see how well I can keep it. I promise that I WILL NOT keep so much junk this time around. I'll be strong and throw things away unless they are THE most awesome items in the world. Or the funniest memories... c'mon, I can't change that much overnight.

In six months, I'll let you know how this goes.

Keep your fingers crossed...

Friday Fellow Take 2

So today's fine Friday Fellow is someone I've loved for a long, long time. I'm sure you all know who it is and probably assumed he would have been my very first last week... I've loved him since I was 9, and knowing how little I like commitment ;), this is one relationship I don't think I'll ever be able to give up! (Though lately he's been looking a little too grandpa- I'll still love him so.) So without further ado... The Friday Fellow who will always be #1 in my heart:


Why do I love him so and for so long? Who knows why anyone loves anyone... You just do. You do what the heart tells you to do. C'mon. That crush you've had for years that never works out... really? You'd keep crushing on that person who won't give you the time of day on purpose?!? Not that Richard Dean Anderson wouldn't love me the minute he saw me... ;) Sometimes you just can't let go. And if something makes you smile... why not keep going with it. There are enough bummers in this world that you have to grab on to the good times and hold them like they are the only things that exist. oK, I'm being a bit dramatic... but really, why not just love something because it's there?
So my quote to you MacGyver...
"You love simply because you cannot help it."

My dating life...

Celebrity magazines and I are dating... VERY seriously. I have lunch with them everyday at work, and even sneak over for a visit or two during the day. Sometimes our relationship is on the sly and other times we go out on group dates (being read by many or a few magazines at a time.) I love celebrity magazines because it's always so dramatic and I never know what's going to be on the next page. It's definitely the most surprising relationship I've ever had! Often we agree exactly, and but there are times I can barely read on because I can't believe what they've just said!!! I love that my magazines will tell me the latest on who's dating who and where they went to dinner, but at the same time, they just can't shut up about the same old topic. How often do I have to hear about Brangelina? (Though thank you for not being jealous when I stare at the pictures of Brad or George a little too long...) Sometimes they don't get the facts straight, but I think they are trying too hard to impress me, and sometimes get a little zealous. (If Jennifer Aniston were pregnant every time they say she was- she'd have more kids than OctoMom!)

How do I love thee celebrity magazines?
Let me count the ways...

I love you because even though I shouldn't have written this whole blog in one paragraph, I know you'll still be there for me week after week with new and exciting news.

I love you because you never care if I eat with my mouth open while we are together, or if I have to put you aside for awhile to help someone else out.

I love you because you just make me happy. As simple as that.

Wordless Wednesday

So I saw this on my friend Jenny's blog... From what I can find, bloggers are just putting a picture up and calling it good for the day. Is this right Jenny? I'm ready to jump into the blogging world with both feet-- so I'll give this a try. If there is something more I should be doing, let me know... I'm trying so hard to be cool!

My Baby... an alien?

Some favorite quotes...

I'm a wee bit tired tonight... bookstores can be so draining! ;)

For today's good times, I'm going to share with you three quotes I really like:

"You're dresses should be tight enough to show you're a woman and loose enough to show you're a lady." - Edith Head

"Our lives improve only when we take chances- and the first and most difficult risk we can take is to be honest with ourselves."

"Time flies like an arrow, fruit flies like a banana." - Groucho Marx

Learn from my stupidity...

Today I have won the award they give to idiots all across America! Boo me! Here's what happened: (That was a little shout out to Monk...)

Just in case you don't know, I work at Barnes & Noble. It's a fun place, with great people, and we're all pretty outgoing. It's basically a work place full of me. We're usually not shy about anything... until today apparently.

So at one point during my shift today, I looked outside and saw this guy in a red ball cap messing around with the steering wheel of a car. He was inside and I really thought he just must be having some kind of car trouble. I called up two fellow co-workers to get their opinions. They agreed with me. The fact of the matter is, we were all being shy and following the old, lame rule of "minding your own business". But, c'mon! The guy was leaning halfway out the window at certain times. He was looking around like a guilty man... not someone waiting for his mom to come out of Michael's. Alas... we still didn't say anything.

Many hours later, I looked out into the parking lot again and there were 4 cop cars surrounding the aforementioned car, and a little family. None of which was the poor, little guy in the red ball cap. (Please hear the sarcasm...) I did go out at this time and tell what we had witnessed and apologized for not doing anything sooner.

I'm trying hard to believe that it was a mistake anyone would have made... but really, it was because we were all too chicken. I guess this same guy tried to steal a car down the street, so they had better eye witnesses, but still! I felt like such a dork! I mean really, what was the worst that could have happened? The police would have shown up and the guy would have thought we were idiots for thinking he was stealing his own car?!?

Luckily the car wasn't damaged and they all drove it away... but my oh my.

What I have learned? I will from now on ALWAYS send out the Bat Signal... So you little jokesters, beware!!!

In better news... the cop asked for my number and I'm pretty sure he's going to call and ask me out!!! (That's a joke... I know it was for witness purposes... I'm not that slow with dating... well, not totally...)

Little creative me...

I thought today I would share a little bit of the creative side of me... So I'm going to share a poem with you that I wrote.

Mary had a little lamb
It's fleece was white as snow...

Kidding! (Like you really thought I had written that...) :)

K, here's a real poem from me to you.

This is a poem I wrote many years ago based on a poem read in a certain movie. I'm kind of shy that I did it... but it was fun to do. Some of you may know who this goes to... but for those of you who don't- it was totally MacGyver! No really...

I hate the way you hair falls in your eyes,
I hate the way you think you give me butterflies,
I hate your voice, your laugh, your smile,
I hate the way your attention is on me for awhile.

I hate that you joke with me, even when it isn't funny,
I hate that you can make my cloudy days seem sunny,
I hate you looking at me when you do the things you do,
But most of all I hate the fact that I really don't hate you.

That's a first draft... as most of my poems are written. Someday I should go back and touch them all up. But, more often than not, I'm just writing them to get out my feelings at the time. Not necessarily that I'm planning on getting them published.

So there you go. A little part of me.

Circe de HOLY SMOKES!!!

Tonight I had a hot date to Saltimbanco, one of the Cirque Du Soleil shows. Wow! All I can say is that they were AMAZING!!! I've never been lucky enough to see a show in Vegas... but I can only imagine what kind they put on when they have more room than the little (but great) E-Center gives them. But all in all, still a good time was had by all.

There were dancers and acrobats and swinging girls and a funny sound making guy and bouncy guys and people who flipped on a swing and a crazy "ring leader" and a live band and even audience participation. They spoke in French the whole time... but I bet what they said was ever so delightful.

We weren't supposed to take pictures, but I cheated and took a few with my phone. Here's sort of what I saw..

The show really was such great fun! I would recommend everyone going at some point in their lives. And I'm pretty sure that if I only had one of their outfits I could for sure do all those tricks!!!

My First Friday Fellow

Many moons ago, I had a Friday morning show with my good friend Jasen. It was full of the silliest things you can imagine, and I don't know why we didn't get picked up by one of the Cedar stations??? On our show, each week, we would tell about someone we were "in love" with. And if you know me at all... well, I always picked someone famous. (Well, except that one week I picked Brad Skinner- husband to one of my best friends... but that's a blog story all on it's own!)

I've decided to continue on with this tradition with my blog. Now before you get nervous and think 'There is NO way Tammy can come up with 52 people she's got a crush on in the industry!'- never you fear! I'm pretty sure I could come up with them and more right now. But one step at a time.

So my first Friday Fellow (love alliteration!) has to have a preface or disclaimer or whatever you think it should be called.

I want to state for everyone that from the beginning, I called that Ed from "Bachelorette" was sleazy and something just didn't feel right about him. If you don't know what I'm talking about... check out the internet and see that he's basically got a cheatin' heart. Jillian, the bachelorette, says she's fine with it... but we'll see how that goes.

Now what does this have to do with my Friday Fellow? I wasn't picking Ed... but picking who Jillian SHOULD HAVE picked in the first place! The one I picked and loved from the beginning.

With or without glasses... he's an adorable chap! Reid hails from Pennsylvania, and we all know how lovely people from the New England area are. :) Sure he has a hard time expressing himself, but don't we all after knowing someone for only 3 seconds (in "Bachelorette" time).
When did I know I loved him so? When he was stuck on a train while everyone else was out on a group date. There he spent the day chatting it up with those who worked on the train. Not only eating with them, but getting advice on what he should wear for his big date with Jillian. (I still say he should have kept the glasses...)
Jillian was nuts not to pick Reid. But then again, we've all made mistakes in the love department. It's for the better anyways. Now I have an actual chance to win him over!!! ;)
So there we go with my first Friday Fellow! Come back every Friday to see who is next!

Thursday, August 6, 2009

Here we go...

So one more episode of "All You Need To Know About Tammy". One final time for you to get all the information you probably never wanted! :)

22. I'm trying to accomplish a list of "100 Things To Do Before I Die"... I've gotten quite a few done, but not nearly as many as I would like.

23. My two dream jobs are being a game show host or the voice for a cartoon.
24. I don't know how to walk in high heels very well and even though I own a pair I never wear them!

25. I don't want to grow up... I want to be a Toys R Us kid forever!

26. I'm still trying to figure out why the caged bird sings...

27. I once had a guy take me out to let me know he wouldn't be going out with me. ?!?

28. I wear size 10 shoes. And I love flip-flops the best out of all those shoes!

29. I went skydiving for the big 3-0 with Angie. I thought I would be scared and except for two small instances, I was fine. And LOVED it!!!

30. I am and will always be on Team Aniston, think Superman is better than Batman, and leading the team to Free Katie!!!

31. I don't like "The Princess Bride". Though I will admit I've only seen it once MANY years ago... I'm willing to give it another chance.

32. I have 24 different versions of "Alice In Wonderland".

33. My favorite show ever is Dawson's Creek. It really is!

34. (Secretly love the color pink. Especially when I need to feel girly.)

So there you go. I hope this helped you to get to know me a little bit better. Maybe for some of you, it was a little more than you ever cared to know. Either way, I hope good times were had by all!

Next time on my blog: Friday I'm in love...

Wednesday, August 5, 2009

Here some more for your reading pleasure...

So have you ever had one of those days that you regretted what you were wearing all day long, only you were at work, and so you were stuck wearing it anyways?!? And the day went on forever and ever and all you wanted was another shirt or something? That happened to me today. For some reason, my shirt was just driving me nuts... it was a long day, but I have a comfy t-shirt on now, and all is right with the world again. Whew!
And now on to what you have all been waiting for! 11 more things about me... it's a good time, I know.

11. I love to watch teen shows, even though I'm in my 30's!

12. I once asked the star of a play to go and see the play with me as a practical joke. He laughed, but was pretty confused at first...

13. I don't like chocolate very much.

14. I used to think Brad Pitt was ugly. The key words here are USED TO...

15. I know which witch is dead...

16. I never stopped loving New Kids On The Block and have been to three of their concerts. The last one was just months ago and was probably the best time I had all year!

17. I sometimes believe the "we never landed on the moon" conspiracy is true.

18. Pie is my most favorite treat of all!

19. I'm a huge fan of Halloween and Christmas. I'm one of those crazy people that decorates as much as possible.

20. I own a velvet Elvis.

21. I've been skydiving... and surprisingly, I wasn't that scared. Ask Angie!
So there we go. Hope this is being fun for everyone.
On my next post: The last 11 amazing things about me! WOO HOO!!!

Ten things to know about me...

oK, as promised here are 10 things you may or may not know about me... (I know, I said 5... but sometimes I kid.)

1. I hate haunted houses, but LOVE scary movies! The more my stomach hurts at the end, the better the movie was.

2. I am STILL a fan of MacGyver! Sigh...

3. I dream everytime I fall asleep and always in living color.

4. I believe celebrity gossip is the best news out there. I'm so thankful for TMZ!

5. I met Joshua Jackson when I was an intern at Letterman. I wasn't supposed to go and meet him, but it was JOSHUA JACKSON! How could I not?!? (I have picture proof, but the picture is so ugly, I rarely show it to anyone.)

6. I shot the sheriff, but I did not shoot the deputy.

7. I still make wishes. On falling stars, the first star of the night, wishing wells, at 11:11...

8. I always finish books, even if they are dumb, because I HAVE to know the ending.

9. I don't know what they did last summer...

10. I talk in my sleep and have even woken myself up a few times still talking.

So there you go... a few little facts about me.
Next time on my blog: 11 more things about me OR 11 reasons you should see "Black Sheep". (And I don't mean the movie with Chris Farley and David Spade.)

Good times to be had...

So I turned 34 yesterday! Holy smokes! Or as Bettymuffin and I like to yell "Man Alive!"

For year 33, I did 33 out of the ordinary things. Like going to an AMAZING New Kids On The Block Concert, and a very fun Greek Festival (which was supposed to help in my desire to go to Greece, but just made me want to go even more!)

Now that I'm older and wiser... I've decided this year I'm going to have a list of 34 things I want to do, like go ice skating and play a boardgame. (There are some bigger ones on the list too.) One of them is to try out a blog. Many of my friends do them, and I love to read them each day and feel involved in their adventures... even if it's only from far away. Plus I think this will get me back into writing more. Something I think I'm pretty good at, and more importantly, I just like doing. And well, I'm pretty darn funny. And I want to share that with all of you!

I can't promise that I'll write everyday- though I'm going to try very hard to- or that it will be anything amazing... but I can promise that it will be entertaining in some way and won't always involve Kitty. (Though she totally rocks!)

I'm going to start off the first few blogs telling you 34 amazing things about me. Things some of you may know or not. Just a way to reintroduce myself to you... if it's needed.

But for today, I want to share with you what a wonderful birthday I had yesterday. My dear friends made me a yummy dinner and cake! (Now I will attempt to put on pictures...)

This was our kids dinner! Everyone should have this for their birthdays! Thank you Eric for playing along...

And this was the lovely cake! MMMM!

I got some lovely presents from everyone... including a fabulous cheese head from my Bekki Shmekki! Bring on the football season!!! Woo hoo!

So there are my good times. I hope you have fun with this blog for the next year. Please leave all the comments your heart desires!
