Beans don't burn on the grill

Blogger & I have enjoyed a 5 ansd 1/2 year love affair but it is time I moved on. No big reason for the switch. I've been thinking about it for a while as WP allows you to password protect individual posts instead of having to password protect the whole blog. And when & if we ever get a kid I want her pics to be password protected. From now on you can find me at Movin on up!

Secret lovahs

Thank you for all your sweet emails & crds! My hand is getting better everydayt but ut is still bandaged so I can't type with iut. So I thought I''d do some cutting and pasting so y'all can see the fun I'm having with my sister'sa boyfriend, He's adorab;e and I'm so excited she finally has a sweet boy whp adores her, the last guy was psycho. Anyway one day I received this message from him and it styarted a fun back anfd forth. I've only edited out last names.

From the first time i met you out @ peppys i knew that we belonged together.
The only things in our way are John and Morgan, and i can have them taken care of if you know wut i mean.
I just wanted you to know that wut ever happens between morgan and i will not effect us
I Love You Shannon R********.

With all my hearts love,

Oh Moe-
How long I have waited for this day, these words, this note! I am thrilled beyond words that you are ready to take our love to the next level. You will be an excellent husband and father. Ooh can't wait to get a car seat in your truck! Once Morgan gets over her heart ache after losing you maybe she can babysit for us. I will keep our secret when you "take care" of Jon and Morgan. It's time for you to leave the girl & experience a woman. It will be better for all of us this way. I can no longer live the lie.
I love you Moe Insert Last Name!
Your's forever,

I know that i seem a little shy, but really im as sensative as a cavity and sweet as a jolly rancher.

the poem that i just made up in this unknown mind of mine will fill you heart with joy and banish John from your mind.

NOW MINE!!!!!!!!

With all my love taken from from Morgan and given to You
and plenty more where that came from,


I stayed up all night reading the dictionary for those words sence you "caint" read redneck!


Meet me in the middle of Fort Mill walking park Sunday morning @ 3:00AM
and we can confess out love to one another

So I dug down deep in my heart and wrote this rap song just for you. Your poem really inspired me. Oh, and where were you at 3am???

Oh Moe,
I love you so.
You make my heart go whoa.
You're the only one, dontcha know?
This chance wid you I will not blow.
Cause you're my buck and I'm your doe.
I'll love you like no one's loved you befo.
Our love won't die it will only grow.
Just remember I'm a woman, I ain't no one's ho.
We ain't rich, we may be po
But we be happy, don't you think so?
Go ahead and dump Momo
She'll be fine, she'll find another bro.
Maybe she could date a dude named Joe.
Oh Moe, I love you from your head down to your toe.
If you liked pudding I'd make you pistachio.
You got my heart going turbo.
I'd love you even if you were an albino.
My heart is ready to overflow.
I just wish you didn't smoke tobacco.
For you I fell like a domino.
Your love's a storm like a tornado.
You make me dizzy like I've got vertigo.
If we were Mexican you'd be my amigo.
If you ever leave me I'll be blue, like indigo.
When you're hungry I'll bake you a potato.
When you're thirsty I'll make you hot cocoa.
I'll do anything for you, today or tomorrow.
You've got me as high as a rainbow.
It's true, other men I'll forego.
I've been shot in the heart by Cupid's bow.
Our love we'll never outgrow.
You're so cute from your head to your elbow,
your eyes, your face, your skin, your torso.
We could run away, live in a borough.
We could go to Alaska and you could be my Eskimo.
We could live on a farm and for you I'd grow
onions, carrots, even a tomato.
Cause when I saw you my heart said "HELLO!"
And now I love you with such gusto.
At Christmas I'll kiss you under the mistletoe.
And cook you pasta with pesto.
Until we meet again, no I must go.
But believe me without you I'm hollow.
With you I'm all aglow!
Oh Moe, I love you so.
True dat.

Ok, let's try this again

I keep forgetting that tomorrow morning I'm going under the knife for my left hand carpal tunnel surgery. I have so much to tell you, full weekend, but I guess that will have to wait til I'm out of my anesthesia induced haze on Tuesday or so. CSP will post tomorrow to update y'all on my condition. If I croak you can still have my sewing machine Lisa. :) I don't go in until 10 which is way too late. Too much time for me to think about the fact that I can't drink anything. And if you know me, then you know I don't go anywhere without a beverage. I have more Tupperware water bottles than you can shake a stick at. Ooh, just remembered I need to shave my legs. Ok, see y'all on the flip side yo.

Friend or famine

I have recently come to realize that I am extremely blessed in the friends department. This hasn't always been the case. I mean, I'm a friendly girl. I've always had friends, never lacked someone to call to hang with, but it hit me recently that I currently have the best set of friends I've ever had. I was tight with this girl we'll call Abby from my senior year in high school til I was about 26. We were roommates for a time, would vacation together and were as close as sisters. But then when we both got engaged we started growing apart. She was still into the whole keg party scene and I was more excited about entering into married life and settling down. We still see each other occasionally and are friendly with each other, and we never had a blow out fight or really broke up, we just gradually started spending less time together.

No one took Abby's place. I didn't have a new best girl friend. Sure there were girls from work and church that I hung out with, but no one major confidante. For years this went on. When you're an adult working full time it's hard to meet new people. But I did have my blog. And my bloggy friends. And a few years one of my bloggy friends introduced me to Lisa and our friendship started to grow. And then we decided to adopt and that brought a whole new audience to my blog. And because of that change I met Shannon, Susan, & Deb- the Tiara girls. All along there have been a core group of bloggy friends with whom I've chatted, coresponded, and kept in touch- some for years and years now- without ever meeting in person. But that doesn't make our friendships any less important. I'll be out and about and see or hear something and I'll think of you as if we grew up together. Years ago it was weird to meet people online. But it always kind of made sense to me to meet people based on common interests, not just geography. And now I can't imagine my life without any of them, without any of you.

DMB in the Hizzouse

Did anyone else catch Dave Matthews' fantastic performance on House Tuesday? I was impressed. In other tv news, I'm so mad we have to wait til April for more Heroes, and is anyone else a little bored by the American Idols this year?

Girls just wanna have fu-un

First I want to say thank you to all you fabulous bloggy friends for your advice and support about my girlie bits. I am seeing another OBGYN next Friday for a 2nd opinion. My records are being faxed to their office as we speak. I can't tell you how much I appreciate having such a supportive, caring bunch of peeps like you.
Also, my left hand surgery is Monday the 12th. So unless my doctor calls in sick again I should be rid of my carpal tunnel soon!
Now, my girls told me that all this serious talk is fine and good but they want to show off their party dresses! They got all dressed up for our anniversary.

I love how Molly's tail wraps up around her dress.
Kiki isn't as thrilled to be dressed up. But Molly couldn't be happier to don a new frock!

Come on Mama, take my picture!!

Eating in

We were super spoiled by my in laws last night for our anniversary. First they brought us these gorgeous place mats. Then they cooked a fabulous dinner for us. French onion soup, delicious bread, a yummy shrimp and cheese tortellini dish, steamed broccoli, and for dessert- tiramisu. It was all served to Jon and I in our dining room by his father, who was a fantastic waiter. He wouldn't let us lift a finger. All the while his mom was in the kitchen cleaning up. We had candles and drank from our good crystal. On the table were gorgeous tulips that my in laws brought for us. They remembered that we had tulips at our wedding. It was lovely. And when it was all over, we saw his parents off and retired upstairs for the night. What a wonderful gift!

...days (6 years) ago I married the most handsome man I've ever seen. He was my best friend, hilarious, sweet, caring, patient, smart, loving, loyal and amazing. And the cool thing is, all those things are still absolutely true.

What a big prick

This cactus lives at my mom's house. I don't know exactly how old he is but I do remember having him when I was 11. I'm 33 now. Anyway, he's gotten so big and unruly Mom doesn't know what to do with him. If you look closely you can see that he's literally taped to the wall to keep him from falling over!
