Why I love Trader Joe's Wine...

Oh Trader Joe's Charles Shaw Blend (click here) 

It's not the reason you think. 

So what Wednesday

•if this post is coming in on Thursday
•if somedays it takes me forever to get ready and get going (except the last two mornings...meetings and conference calls blah)
•if I like to exercise my right to shoes. My new beauties

So can't wait for BB14 tonight...oh the drama, twist and turns. And I got the email from library that I could download Gone Girl. Husband will be gone fishing this weekend and so that gives me the apartment to myself to read and drink a little wine. Heaven!!!!

Happy Wed....oh I mean Thursday!!!!

Tuesday's Letter - Dear Neighbors

Dear Neighbors,

How can you be afraid of our sweet basset hound, Petey? He is the sweetest, cutest dog ever. He's not going to bite you and as a matter of fact he's never done that to anyone. He will lick you to death and that's all. You are welcome to pet him if you like. Just don't act like a little scared kid because you look like a fool.


Probably your best neighbor and cutest dog

If you really knew me Monday

I love someone who knows their strengths and accentuates them. However, someone who knows their weaknesses and doesn't work on them, drives me crazy. If you can't spell, not organized, not someone who works out, etc and you do nothing, I feel pity for you. Use your strengths but work on your weaknesses. It will make you a better person. I hate to work out but because the doctor says I need to and it's just good health practices I must. I know it's something that I'll have to work at and work to make a routine.

So what Wednesday

•if I forgot to post Tuesday's Letter
•I had a craving for a tuna melt and when I have a craving it's hard for it to go away. Thanks Subway!
•I've read all the Fifty Shades books and enjoyed it.

If you really knew me...

I'm not a fan of scary movies. I don't like the suspicion, anxiety, and unsettling feelings they cause. However, I will watch them every once in awhile but not by myself.

Cheers to Starting Again

You may have noticed that I have attempted again to start blogging on a regular basis. I struggle with coming up with things to write about on a consistent basis. So theme days will be the basis and I got the ideas from a couple other blogs I read, Life After I Dew and Where there is life, there is love. As I come up with other things to write about those will be thrown in as well. So here's to yet another start of blogging more regularly (whenever I hear the word regular for some reason I think of bowl movements. I blame it on yogurt commercials.)

Oh and I'm pretty proud of myself for keeping at 30 Day Shred. But scared cause it's about that time to try level 2. Eek

Lyrical Thursday - Tristan Prettyman - My oh My

Love her.  Can't wait for her cd to come out the end of September, Cedar + Gold. It will be interesting to see how her music was influenced by her break up with Jason Mraz.

So What Wednesday

•if I watch too much reality tv. I like it.
•if I go to bed at 8pm tonight. I've been super productive and I'm so tired. Didn't sleep well last night.
•if it took all day. We have new floors in our kitchen and bathrooms. They seem so clean and spotless. Love. It's about time tho!!!

Tuesday's Letter - Dear Jillian

Dear Jillian,

Although you are doing good for me (i'm sure of it...i can do's only a bit over 20mins...that's just my way of convincing myself... It's a daily convo i have with myself) and I make myself meet with you on most days. I still don't like you. My dog doesn't even like you. I turn the DVD on and he leaves the room. It's not you that makes me do it and finish. Your "just a couple more" is never a couple. Just so you know a couple is defined in my world as a pair...2. I guess your's is definition #4 in merriam-webster....a small indefinite number. That drives me crazy and I don't need you getting a big head thinking "oh well you can say what you want , you're doing the workout day in and day out and finishing." I push through knowing that if I finish I can allow myself a glass of wine or a piece of dark chocolate. My satisfaction can summed up in the joy i feel by pushing the power off on the dvd player and your silly grin fades off my screen. My hatred will probably just grow as I move on to the other levels. And it doesn't help that I have two other DVDs with your face on them begging to be put in and played. I will never like you but thank you...I guess.

Yours....truly, kindly, not sure what sentiment to use,

Going to Get Shredded Calista

If you really knew me....

I can watch P.S. I Love You a million times and still cry each and every time I watch it.
