25 Random Thoughts

1. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
2. I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.
3. There is a great need for sarcasm font.
4. Sometimes, I'll watch a movie that I watched when I was younger and suddenly realize I had no idea what the heck was going on when I first saw it.
5. How the heck are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?
6. I would rather try to carry 10 plastic grocery bags in each hand than take 2 trips to bring my groceries in.
7. I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.
8. The only time I look forward to a red light is when I'm trying to finish a text.
9. Was learning to write in cursive really necessary?
10. I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.
11. How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear what they said?
12. I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars teams up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front.. Stay strong, brothers & sisters !
13. MapQuest really needs to start their directions on #5. Pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.
14. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.
15. Bad decisions make good stories.
16. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you've made up your mind that you just aren't doing anything productive for the rest of the day.

19. I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello? D@mnit!), but when I immediately call back, it rings nine times and goes to voicemail. What'd you do after I didn't answer? Drop the phone and run away?
20. I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not seeing anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste.
21. It should probably be called Unplanned Parenthood.
22. I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.
23. Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey - but I'd bet everyone can find and push the Snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time every time...
24. It really ticks me off when I want to read a story on CNNcom and the link takes me to a video instead of text.
25. I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Lites than Kay..

SMILE ---- it makes people wonder.......

Seeing Stars

Last weekend we went to see A Christmas Carol at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood.
I had no idea how cool this little adventure would be.
I thought we were just going to watch a Disney movie at a fancy theatre.
Well to my amazement, we were smack dab in the middle of Hollywood's Walk of Fame.
(who woulda' thunk I was from around these parts of town)
We find a spot to park in an expensive little garage
and who's the first person we see when we step out onto the street.
None other then Mr. Snoop Doggy Dogg, himself!
Well I just had to pinch myself, I was so thrilled!
I tried to play it cool though...

After all that excitement, we proceeded to walk down the street
and would you guess who flew by us?
That's right- Batman.
He was kind enough to let us know, as he spread his wings wide open, that
he poses for tips.

Uh huh, that's right.
You wanna take a picture with Spidey in this super cool pose, you better pay up!
Bet ya' didn't know that Spiderman wears slippers when he walks the street...
That's so he doesn't leave any sticky spidey tracks.
This guy tried to buzz on past us, but The Boy wasn't havin' that!
He wouldn't let his Daddy step away either.
The Boy has told all his friends at school that he met Bumble Bee in Hollywood.
He comes home everyday to tell me that someone else wants to go with us.
We might just have to take a field trip there.
Michael Jackson was also posing at his star.

Dora The Explorer was backpackin'.

Cinderella and her prince were dancing in the streets.

Edward Cullen winked at The Teenager a couple times!
I know, these are the things you dream of!

Chucky from Child's Play was lunging at people with a knife as they walked past.
The Teenagers went running as fast as possible and The Boy was worried the whole way home that 'that little boy is going to get lost".

Elmo wanted to pose for a picture(for a tip of course)
but when we told him we didn't have a camera,
he gave us a lecture for being in Hollywood without a camera.
(Yes, I'm still without a camera!!)

And to top off our awesome adventure, the movie was in 3D.
I obviously have never seen the commercials because I had no idea!
I don't think anyone else had any idea how scary this movie would be for the kiddies either.
You've been warned!
Kids will cry.
But you WILL look cool!
Word to the wise-
If you're visiting Hollywood soon,
bring a camera
and bring some dolla' dolla' bills y'all!

Things that make you go hmmmmm….

Compliment or not-

“Wow, your hair is/ nails are so long.”
This is not a compliment people. It’s a statement. A fact.
How do you respond? Yes, they are long, thanks for noticing.

“Oh, you cut your hair.”
Yes, another statement.
Unless it is followed by a “it looks great”, that is not a compliment.

“Did you lose weight? I almost didn’t recongnize you!”
Really? Did you mean that as a compliment because it makes me feel like I must’ve looked pretty bad before. I know I was chubby, but seriously unrecognizable?

Murphy’s law-

1. Why is that when you are desperate for a red light because 1. you’re trying to finish putting on your makeup or 2. something’s fallen to the floor and rolled as far to the passenger side as possible you get nothing but green lights.

Then when you’re in a hurry you only catch red lights.

2. You’re ready to go shopping, have some money to spend and know exactly what you want, but get to the store and find absolutely nothing that you like or anything that fits.

You go back to the store when you’re flat broke and there everything is- bright and shiny, calling your name with sale tags to top it off!

3. Your teenager begs and begs you to take her to the nail shop. You finally take her but she doesn’t like any of the colors so she says she will just do them at home herself.

Oh well, just means Mama can get a mani and a pedi!

You’re in line buying alcohol for an upcoming party, only alcohol in your shopping cart.
Everyone else in line only has milk in their carts.
Did I look like a Lush?

When your Boy meets a complete stranger he tells stories in complete detail of when he got in trouble and punished.
Hmmmm...Thanks Son.
Follow along through the fun and agony as we try to figure out how to raise two completely opposite teenagers- Teen 1, the fiesty yet inquisitive one, Teen 2 quiet but wise-cracking and our ball full of energy known as The Boy. It aint always pretty, but we’ll sure try to make the best of it!
These are the stories of our lives…
