A Conversation about Bret Mich*aels

(Picture from here)

So I have to set my relationship (well, I mean he doesn’t know I’m alive or anything) must have started back in high school.  No, I wasn’t in high school in the 80’s.  In fact, I didn’t start kindergarten until 1990.  However, I used the ever popular Poison song “Every Rose Has It’s Thorn” as part of a huge junior English project.  I get that song stuck in my head any time I think about that project.

I digress.  Anywho, I haven’t thought much about Bret until recently because my husband and I thoroughly enjoy The Celebrity Apprentice.  (Side note:  I totally disagree with Rod Blag*ojevich and don’t really love him, but he was super entertaining on this show!)  I have actually grown to like Bret a lot on the show, and his recent illness has caught my attention.

It just seems so weird to watch him on Sunday and see him seem so full of life, and then just BOOM!  His life is forever changed.  It scares me to think how instantly life can be gone or greatly affected.  It truly is a precious gift from God.  I do hope he has a full recovery, if for nothing else than his two young daughters. 

I have to admit, I never thought I would be doing a blog post on Bret, but ya never know I guess.  Life is short whether you live ‘till the ripe old age of 104 or it is tragically cut short much sooner.  I guess the moral of the story is: love the Lord with you whole being and love your neighbor – all else doesn’t really matter.

I totally agree!!! I have watched Bret on Rock of Love and though I didn't think I really was a BIG fan of his, but I too like him on Celebrity Apprentice. Any who, I was so shocked when I heard about his medical issues! Have a good rest of the week!

It is so sad what is happening to him...I take care of people like him almost every day and it is sad to see how quickly, and dramatically a persons life can change. It certainly makes you think about your own life.

Conversation #114: Wardrobe Checklist (and retail detox update)

I read something a while back that sort of spurred me into thinking I needed to do this whole retail detox thing.  I'm just going to get it out there - it has been way hard for me and I'm super embarrassed and disappointed by that.  I did well for the first two weeks, and then I got into this buying and returning things habit because I felt bad after buying it.  I told myself that I could still buy things, but only with extra money I earned from ebay.  That worked for a while too, but then I caved to the Lands' End Canvas sale last weekend.  I bought three tees, a skirt, and a cardigan.  I think that all but maybe one tee will be going back and hopefully I can stop this extra shopping. 

Okay, back to the "thing" I read...

It was an article in Real Simple magazine targeted at helping you never buy the wrong thing again.  It has great tips in it, and the wardrobe checklist it includes really brought it all back home to me.  I started going through the checklist an…

The Post Office Blonde Moment

(Photo from:

So I found a new satchel purse that I'm very excited about.  I got a better deal on this one than the other, and it is from one of my favorite purse companies, The Sak.  Here is a picture of it:
I decided that I needed to return a purse I bought from them a couple of weeks ago though to feel good about this purchase.  I bought it thinking I would love it, but I just couldn't make the shape fit for me.  I let it sit for a week or so, but it wasn't happening.  I was just going to keep it because the thought of returning it sounded like a hassle until this bag was revealed on their website, and it was waaaaay marked down for a week!  I decided I would just send the other one back, and so began the post office debacle.

I lost a little faith in the USPS this week - at least the local one near me.  I went on Monday night to pick up a priority mail box, and they were all out.  Plus, there were like 20+ people in line.  I de…

Conversation #203: So I married my mom

I don't know if people say this to men, but I heard a lot while growing up that girls tend to marry someone like their dad (I guess good, bad, or ugly).  I don't know how true that really is, but relatively early on in our marriage, my husband and I realized I married my mom.

This doesn't mean my husband is feminine or my mother masculine, but to say that they seem to be the same person.  I am definitely more like my dad personality wise so it probably make sense that I married someone more like my mom.  Now I will say my mom, being an actual woman, generally makes her a bit more empathetic and understanding to the eccentricities of being a woman.  I don't think any man, my husband or otherwise, will ever be able to understand the intricacies of being a woman. However, I also feel like he can talk to my mom, and being that they have both lived with me and seem to speak the same language,  can benefit from her wisdom and knowledge of co-habitating with me and enlighten …
