Weekend Stuff

This weekend was good. My Luke came home, looking all cute and being all sweet and Luke-ish. I knew he was coming home and we've been together for a long time but, when I heard the door open on Friday evening at 7:30, my heart sped up. I got so excited and I rushed to great him. He was wearing a white t-shirt and khaki shorts and sporting a full beard. He can grow such a pretty beard. And it looks so good now because his hair is cut. Anyway, when I saw him and hugged him and buried my face into his neck it was like, "Ahhh, this is it." I know that all of this sounds trite and cliche' but, it's true. In those moments the world stopped and everything was good, safe, perfect.
Then he started bitching because the garbage men threw our trash can in the ditch!! :) Oh well, I didn't say life (or my husband) was perfect.

Saturday we went to Holly's graduation crawfish boil. Thanks for having us, Holly!! It was fun, the crawfish were good and you looked beautiful. Our Miss Holly graduated on Friday from LSU with a bachelor in English and already has a job in Houston, TX. She will be teaching 10th grade English. Love you and am so proud of you, Gawdsista!!

So, I am officially 100% sick of being a huge fat cow. I really am not having it anymore. I'm just over it. I really love to eat. I don't just love bad, fatty foods, though. I love fish- grilled, and veggies, salads, etc... I love french fries, yes but, the REAL thing is that I need to get my butt in motion. So, that's what is going to happen. Starting this week, I am slowly going to get it going. I'm going to walk. Then, when that's not so hard I'll join something or hire everybody's favorite trainer, Betsy. So, I may not look good on the beach next weekend (that really sucks but, I'm so excited to go!) but, I will next year.

I always have to scratch my back and I can never get to the itch so I went on my favorite- and looked at the backscratchers. If you are familiar with Amazon, you know that lots of times they have "buy this with this for this price". Well, with my backscratcher was the "Ting Ting Head Tuner (The Ultimate "Vibrating Massager"). I read the customer reviews and they ranged from "Oh Good Lord, it changed my life, I never wanted to take it off my head..." to "It was ok". So, I figured, why not? The point to this little story is that I got them both in the mail yesterday but, I have not opened the "Ting Ting" yet. I'm going to be breaking that out soon. I'll be letting you know all about it

And finally, USA is featuring a new show soon called The Starter Wife starring Debra Messing (my girl Grace from Will & Grace). I found out that it was based on a book and had mixed feelings on whether I should read it or not. I have been so upset watching the movie after reading the book (The Devil Wears Prada, Memoirs of a Geisha, etc...), the book is always sosososo much better and the movie is such a let down. I love Debra Messing so I don't want to jinx it but, I saw the book at Wal-Mart and had to get it. I'm just starting to read it and just picture Debra is Gracie's character. I think this will probably help. So, I'm telling you this so you know what I'm reading. I would LOVE for someone to read it with me. If you don't want to read that with me, I have another book that is of more "substance" that might be more of interest. I will give out the details if anyone is interested. Also, over on the "READ THIS" section- I have set it up where you can click on the book and get to the link on Amazon. Cool, huh?

What are you reading? What new things have you tried that you want to share? Leave a comment...

***UPDATE--- The "Ting Ting Vibrating Head Massager" is very weird but very cool. I really like it. The package says the funniest stuff such as: " This handheld device is specially designed to stimulate your nerve endings and massage acupressure points on your scalp, temles, and neck. It has amazing theraputic and pleasure properties. (Ha Ha, sounds dirrrty,but this is my favorite part-) The effect could spread through your entire body and you may shiver with pleasure. Isn't that hilarious!!!! Is it a warning? It's not necessary, take it from me. The "Ting Ting" is nice but, I'm not passed out in pleasure. It was cheap. It is cool for what I paid for it. Advertising is funny.
