USS BIRTHDAY ENTERPRISE

I do NOT like Star Trek.

However, I do enjoy birthday parties and love my friend Nate.
So when I was invited to his surprise themed party I was there with bells...err communicator and big hair on.
What's a Star Trek party without Counselor Deanna Troi and Captain James Tiberius Kirk?!



Throw in some Star Trek scene it, delicious food, the new Star Trek movie, and you've got an awesome ride aboard the USS Birthday Enterprise!




Live long and prosper, Nate.

SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL 2011

Today is the last official day of the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, UT.
I have grown to love this event and all of the people who attend it

from making new friends on the various shuttle buses


to having your dreams interpreted before eating at Main Street Pizza & Noodle

to the crazy people in costumes each year


to the LA people who have to buy a new winter wardrobe just for this event


to private screening swagg


to sneeking into parties with celebrities


to seeing old friends and making new ones


oh...and I almost forgot they show films there too!


Stanley Tucci, John Salley, James Franco, 50 Cent, Oprah, Justin Beiber...see you again next year...same time, same place!

90% OFF

I think next year I'm going to celebrate Christmas on January 15th. Gosh I thought I was getting good deals on "sales" before the holiday, but just a few weeks later everything is anywhere from 50-75-90% off. Good golly. I guess you've got to make your money somehow, Mr. Economy. (But you, little Miss Victoria's Secret, will not trick me again this year!)

$50 EDENFANTASYS GC GIVEAWAY

**CLOSED**
This might sound a little funny, but I am a real sucker for the commercialness of holidays. I know, I know...most people hate that part about them and despise walking by the seasonal aisle in most supermarkets or drug stores. However, I LOVE heart shaped pizzas for Valentine's Day, pastel sprinkles on my donut for Easter, putting green dye in food for St. Patrick's Day, decorating bikes with streamers and flags for the 4th of July, cashiers in costumes at the mall on Halloween, tacky Christmas sweater parties in December, and so on. It all just makes me smile.


Since Valentine's Day is coming up, I have the opportunity to host a giveaway at a place where you can find lots of hearts for that someone special, yourself, or to give as a present - You choose because you can win a $50 gift card!

There are so many things to choose from starting with heart shaped hand warmers for these cold winter mornings lots of us are having now, cute lingerie with heart prints, heart shaped ice cube trays (pictured above), or many different heart candles.

Shop around for whatever you like...I promise I won't judge you and your items will be delivered in a discreet package so nosy neighbors won't either.

RESOLUTION LIST


It is half way through the first month of the new year.
My new year's resolution: to be on time.
Oops...I kinda blew that one.
Oh well, I will soon get my parking spot back at the rec center from all the resolution-ers dying out and everything will be fine.

I have a confession: New Year's Eve is not my most favorite holiday to celebrate and I don't think I am the best at setting goals. I have never said, "THIS is gonna be my year!"
I know I have things to improve on, I just don't get the new year start over thing. I mean, I want to be smart, healthy, and loving all the time.
But I am willing to test it out. SO number one on my list is to actually make a list.
A small list.
Number two is to stop making lists.
Oh wait...just kidding.
I'm not sure yet what else will be on list, but I know for sure I won't ask to be more patient because the last time I asked for that people started driving slow in front of me on the roads, the girl at Subway barely put any cucumbers on my sandwich she was taking forever to make, and it took days to get email responses I needed fast. Yeah...note to self: don't ask God for tough lessons because He WILL answer your prayers.

Win a $50 gift card to Amazon from My Baby Clothes. For your own chance to win see the baby clothes blog for more information. This post was written for an entry.

DEATH OF A SNOWMAN

He was a jolly, happy soul
whenever he put that hat on his head
Always running here and there.
He seemed like he was alive as he could be.
But I guess he said "Catch me if you can" one too many times to Mother Nature.
Last thing I remember, he was outside smoking his corncob pipe
when I heard a loud thumpetty thump thump
and his last request saying, "Don't you cry! I'll be back again someday."
Oh look at Frosty go...

FATTY

I was handed a yummy bag of Dove promises today. I know I have posted something similar to this before, but every time I get these (which isn't very often) I get giddy as if it's the first time I've ever had them and thought of this idea.

Today, I have officially decided that after reading each one I will add the term of endearment FATTY. It's like adding the phrase "in bed" after reading your fortune cookie. For example:

Savor the now, Fatty!

Live your life with an attitude of gratitude, Fatty.

And my personal favorite...
Learn to let go, Fatty.

No offense to Roberta, Carmella, and Erin who submitted these wonderful sayings. I just feel it would be better if they called me fatty and inspired me NOT to eat so many.

THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKIN' ABOUT

video

I'm just posting this for Jacq to remember who her favorite is...maybe the Hello Kitty gift pack influenced her a little bit, but I'll take it.

TRUE GRIT

I am not much one for westerns, however, I watched the film True Grit the other night. To my astonishment, I found that I quite enjoyed it. I believe the way the characters innocently spoke the obvious/truth and how they pronounced every syllable is what kept me interested.

Example from LaBoeuf: You give out very little sugar with your pronouncements. While I sat there watching I gave some thought to stealing a kiss... though you are very young, and sick... and unattractive to boot. But now I have a mind to give you five or six good licks with my belt.

After exiting the theater, and reviewing the film with my friend, I tried to speak as they did in the movie and found it rather difficult. I had to concentrate on not using contractions (we are so lazy in our speech these days) and frankly felt I sounded a little slow talking that way. But I'm gonna try it...a full day of using my True Grit speech. Starting....NOW...
