Mr. Cisco

Please add Jesse James to my Top 5.

He just cracks me up! Such a good sport.

Slap your troubles away

Sprinkle of Heaven

I have an incredible sweet tooth. If eating only chocolate, ice cream, and cake were an acceptable way to live my life, I would do it. I may not be able to walk on my own, or fit into anything other than a giant mumu dress, but I would do it. If Willy Wonka wanted to sell his factory, I'd place a bid.

But instead of constantly engorging myself in life's best treasures, I instead opt for little indulgences. Enter Sprinkles Cupcakes. These things are perfection. Perhaps a little too sweet at times, but hey, so am I. It happens.

Those of us in Dallas are lucky enough to be one of 5 cities to enjoy these little treasures, but the rest of you out there can always order online. And please do. You won't regret it.

A friend in need is a friend indeed.

Would you do this for your friends?
I would.

Hello, Goodbye

Wow... April has been BUSY!!! Here is a rundown of my month so far:

Parents in town: March 27-April 4
Easter weekend happenings with friends and family: April 11-12
Boyfriend's birthday: April 13
CNN Live broadcast at Strokers: April 15
Strokers Dallas Garage Sale (with Wet T-Shirt Contest): April 18-19
Got a NEW PUPPY for my birthday (see April 27): April 24
My own garage sale: April 25-26
My birthday: April 27
Preparing for house warming party: April 29-30

... and now here we are and the month is almost over! That is my excuse for totally neglecting this blog. There have been many updates to the house (new sod! new bedroom decor!) and the family (new Bernese Mountain Dog Puppy!!) that have kept me extremely busy. But I will stop with the excuses and start with the sharing. Speaking of sharing, please check out the "cool stuff from other people" section on the left for other cool blogs and their more frequent posts!

You're Fired

I used to love The Apprentice. You know, back in the day when "The Donald" was just Donald and the contestants were real people playing for a real job. But then it turned "celebrity" and I lost all interest. It just wasn't the same.

But this season, the show has redeemed itself in the form of Jesse James. Thanks to YouTube, I was able to catch episode summaries and now I'm hooked on it. I'm lovin that Jesse is a take-no-hell, work hard and you'll survive kinda guy.

Check it out for yourself:

Made from the best stuff on Earth

Queen Victoria had good taste. And so does Snapple for that matter.

Proof: The new drink I tried today called Snapple Peach Mangosteen. "Rumor has it that Queen Victoria of England offered knighthood to anyone who could bring her a Mangosteen in edible condition."

Do you even know what a mangosteen is? No? Ok. I'll tell you:
Though it’s been around for literally thousands of years, the mangosteen fruit is not commonly known the world over. Typically grown in southeast Asia and other tropical climates, its taste is beyond compare. Containing a dark purple rind and boasting a sweet white pulp, it is roughly about the size of a tangerine.
Delicious as it is functional, the mangosteen fruit is rich in xanthones, which may promote healthy bodily function. In addition, each serving of mangosteen contains up to 5 grams of fiber. Its purplish pigment has also been used as a dye. (

...and it's darn good in juice. Try it.

But I am Le Tired...

Found this classic animation again... nice flashback:

April 10 = awesome

I can't WAIT for April 10 when Dallas bars and restaurants go smoke free!! But if you're one who likes to pollute the air for others, perhaps you should celebrate "the end of an era" and attend the Strokers Smoke Em day:
(I do not support this event, but I LOVE the fliers!)

Lookin Good MOM!
