Proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy!

Ok--normally that is my line for the glorious deliciousness that is Chipotle or Taco Bell, but I have just now heard of the 2nd coming! Behold blessed readers...I GIVE YOU......


I am so torn about this--should I want to vomit or revel in the magnificence of this creation???????

2 of God's most wondrous creations all combined into one package. It's both a drink and a marinade--the site even had RECIPES!!!! (Copy and paste please, I'm a loser and I cannot make the link work).

Bakon vodka just hit the shelves a few weeks ago, and is currently sold in limited quantities in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana. So if any of you live in that area, I will be of life long servitude to you if you can get a bottle shipped my way.

I'm thinking that I'd add it to my breakfast orange juice and breakfast would become my favorite meal of the day!!! I wouldn't even have food with it--I'd get the taste of bacon with out the grease and fat!! Oh Heavens Yes!!

When I had heard that Farrah died, it was a feeling of relief for her suffering and knowing that God had finally given her peace.

When I heard of Michael's passing, it was with shock, sadness and a loss of a part of my youth.

2 great icons of a time when I was growing up.

Rest in Peace both of you--you left us a great legacy!

Tag I'M it...

Ok, Kelley over at The Casa deChaos tagged me in this photo game. Here's how it works. Go to your first photo file and post the 10th photo in that file.

Oh Please, please, pretty please let it be one of my Rob pics--the blog needs some hot Rob right about now.

Well--shoot, it wasn't Rob, but it is timely once again as the gas prices continue their upwards ascent. Really--about that--I'm pissed. Oil at 147.00 per barrel was over $4 a gallon. Oil at $70.00 per barrel should be about $2.00 right---WRONG or as we would have said in the 80's PSYCH! It almost $3.00 a gallon. Must be more of the government "Fuzzy math".

Anyheeeew. That is my who to tag...

OK--Since she NEVER posts anything: Theresa over at My Own Prison>
Go girl--post something pretty from Florida!!!

Next 48 Hour Weather--hold on to yo' ass Dorothy!

Direct from our county Emergency Management Agency!! I LIVE for this kind of stuff people!! If I could be a storm chaser, I would!!! I remember my dad throwing us in the car for these type of things when I was little--nothing better than a strong storm system--as long as no one gets hurt of course. The changing skies, the crackle in the air--it gets my blood going. I think its my animal instincts kicking up!!

"A unique weather situation is developing over the next 48 hours for Wood County . The dynamics in the atmosphere will allow for the development of strong to severe thunderstorms over the forecast period. In this part of the Country, we only see this type of atmospheric development 2-3 times a year. Typically, thunderstorms in this area develop as a result of the daytime heating in the summer months. The following are some details as to what we could expect across NW Ohio over the next 48 hours or so.

Two primary waves of “energy” in the atmosphere will develop and progress across NW Ohio over the forecast period. The first wave of energy will arrive over night tonight (Thursday night-Friday morning). The second wave of energy will arrive over night Friday night into early Saturday morning. These two waves of energy will allow for strong to severe thunderstorms to develop and move through the area in the overnight hours (which is unusual). As stated above, typically we lose thunderstorm intensity as we lose the heating of the day, however, the dynamics of the atmosphere will allow for the potential of strong to severe storms in the overnight hours. The Friday daytime hours will be extremely warm and humid which may allow for additional thunderstorm development during the day. Some rain and thunderstorms may continue into the morning and early afternoon hours of Saturday also, but the severity should be decreased. By late Saturday afternoon and evening, we should see the entire storm system move east of us with clearing skies.

With these thunderstorms, large hail, high winds, and heavy rain will be the primary threat. The potential for tornados are also possible with these types of storms. Over the 48 hour period, some areas in NW Ohio could see 2”-3” of rain which may cause some flash flooding especially in small streams and across roadways.

Please keep this information in mind as we go through the next 48 hours and try to stay tuned into local television, radio, and weather radio updates for the latest information on weather developments. As always, we ask that you to review your work and home preparedness plans. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Happy 20th Anniversary!!

HOLY HELL!! Today is my 20th Wedding Anniversary. If you would have told me 20 years ago how my life would be now, I would have laughed in your face. IT IS SO MUCH BETTER!!

I had no idea what this "marriage thing" was going to have in store for my 20 year old self way back then, but my 40 year old self is thankful and amazed that it has come this far.

There have been many wonderful times, some sucky times and some really shitty times, but we've made it thru so far. I think we took that "for better or worse" thing pretty seriously huh? We've been tested in so many ways the last 3 years alone that it's a miracle we are still standing. But dear husband, the good has outweighed the bad and I'm glad I've gone on this crazy ride with you!!

So Happy 20th to me--here's to 20 more!! Clink!

The Bitch is Back!!

Hello all,

We are back and I am winding down my last day of vacation--wwwwaaaaaahhhhh!! I am of the sad, but one does have to work whilst one has a job I suppose.

So Last Sunday, we got up and told DD that we were going out to breakfast. She was less than amused, but got in the car. We pulled into the airport and she started with the "Why are we at the airport?" We told her that they put in a new restaurant we wanted to try for breakfast. (Snicker, snort) She was all like ok, whatever, but then we went to the trunk and started pulling out suitcases. She asked why we needed those and we asked where would she really like to go for breakfast? She was totally confused and we yelled--WE'RE GOING TO FLORIDA. Jumping up and down and squeeeeing then ensued.

We had a great time--A day was spent at Daytona Beach, just lying in the sun and listening to the waves. Miki tried her hand at boogie boarding--SHE LOVED IT~~until she got her first mouthful of salty sea water--but she was a trooper and kept on!

We spent another day at Universal Studios--a nice break from all the Disney festivities--one can only take so much of being told to have a "Magical Day" I was ready to cut the next person who said it. I found my next job though--I want to work with Apoo at the Kwik-E-Mart!!! I even tried on a uniform shirt!!

We also had a great day at NASA. We took a "Then and Now" tour that took us out to launch pads and into the blockhouses used during the Apollow and Saturn missions. We got to stand on the launch pad of Apollo 1 which is now a memorial to the 3 men who died during the preflight test of their rocket. It was very somber. We also saw the memorial for the space shuttle astronauts we have lost. The history was amazing--even the 8 year old loved it.

After 5 days of crazy, we left our stress and money behind..and Florida said:
