Red Robin-n-n-n - Yum!

Red Robin, Yum!!
October 26th, was my oldest daughter, Laurens birthday.
Its become a tradition as the kids have gotten older, to go to dinner
with just Mom, so Lauren chose Red Robin (Yum!) and I got to smash on some burger seriousness.

Being 17 AND her birthday, I allowed her to indulge in a Whiskey.


Whiskey Burger. Whiskey River Burger. And no meal at Red Robin (Yum!) is complete without a tower of onion rings. And bottomless fries.
Them peoples at Red Robin (Yum!) know the key to any heart is bottomless french fries and a tower. And would you please refrain from anymore Yum!(s) because their commercial is permanetly stuck in my brain, and now yours. Your very very very welcome;)
Laurens Cake

And of course, no birthday ends complete without a graveyard cake and alot of hoot'n & holler'n, I mean singing Happy Birthday.
Thats how we roll.


The Birthday Girl was all smiles and already talking about next year, so I am happy to announce I did something right. Ok, ok, so this is the same child that talks about what she'll get, on Christmas 2019, but I dont hold
it against her.

On each childs birthday, as the clock strikes midnite, I go back in time.
A time when she was born 4 pounds, 16" long. If she curled her teensy-eensy little legs up, she was no longer than a ruler. She has imprinted beautiful memories upon my heart and I wouldn't change a thing.
Lauren is a truly beautiful person to know. She's full of laughter and a smile that reaches from here to the moon.

She even took this picture of ME.
And I thought about how quickly time passes. When you blink, its over.
On Friday, I will celebrate 40 years young.
I say, Im not almost 40....Im eighteen with 22 years experience;)

Magnificent Beady Twisties

For all you beady whores out there, I found a lovely fellow-lampworker who makes the grooviest twisties eva.
I'm mc'lovin these....Shout out to Laura!!
I've been making my own twisties out of glass for many years, but this could be an easier way to go bout' it.
Just wanted to share the love.
Aww stop. Your welcome, I'll accept hugs later.

Today is the FIRST day I have felt actually human in weeks.
As most of you know, my health has been a really fickle girl, and I dont like to post too much about it, because its really really whiney stuff....*gags* Plus, when Im not feeling well, I dont want to drag you down with negative stuff...
We all know bad stuff can get consuming and I really try not to talk about it "too" much, or at least over-talk it.
Am I overtalking? Just tell me...its ok.
No really, go ahead.
I have been getting numerous emails since October has hit to make a new baby chimp. I know, I know....its WAY overdue...sighs.
I think people start thinking Holidays when Halloweeny is near, and I agree with the masses, its TIME. Past due.
So, I have set a goal for myself to start work on a sculpted baby chimp thats been jumping up & down in my imagination for quite some time.
See there? All that time I've been sick & married to my couch/bed, has paid off. Plus, I got to catch up on the Jackass marathon.....
(love you Johnny Knoxville) *pitterpatter*

Honestly, who ISNT in love with Knoxville? Unless your dead that is.
I realized how UNdead I really was...thank you Johnny!

October 3, 2010

It was a beautiful day at the Apple Orchard Festival...
Mother Nature was a bit teary eyed, but she behaved for the most part.
Ok, do you want the truth? She was a frigid c-c-c-cold biatch.
"You cant handle the truth!!" (insert best Jack Nicholson voice over)

Other than being a bit chilly & a bit misty, it really was a beautiful day.
Since I had already eaten my weight in carmel apples, before October
even happened, I was a good goyle today and didn't even buy one!
Nope. Not. Even. One. I didn't do it. It took alot of therapy beforehand, but as in anything, if you work hard enough, it can happen.
Or not happen, whichever way you wanna look at it.

Now, im'a wishin I had a daggummed carmel apple!
I have no willpower, I lied. Next time I go to the store, I will get one more of the little boogers to satisfy my addiction.
After that one, I should be good. Or two....but 2 will be it.
I promise. After those 3 - I'm soo over it. Pinkyswear.


My mum had a table at the Orchard, this weekend and sold her weight in gold, holy camoly, its true! Makes me wanna get a table next year and peddle my wares, furreal. I even met a new friend who shares a passion for fire/beedz like I do, and I promised to stay in contact.
I promised and I meant it, cross my heart & no one dies.

Haleigh & Horse

We had hot cider & carmel slushies that were good enough to trigger a whole new pattern of addictions. There was a live band and a camel.
Yes, your ears are clean, I said camel.
And wow oh wow, did Mr. Camel Man have funky kneecaps.

I didn't get a picture (just of the horses) - Sorry, but his eyelashes were SO long, I wanted to braid them to keep warm. It's not every day, you get to see a camel up that close. And he was near humpless, so people could climb up a set of stairs and ride on top. It was very awesome and next year I will ride that camel, I will.

I will also get extra caramel on my apples, drink a dozen cider slushies, shake my fist at Mother Nature & dance around like an idiot, swatting at the bees. See? I told you, you cant handle it!!

Pooh Philosophy

Pooh-"This is the best part of the day."
Christopher Robin,
"And, what part is that?"
Pooh, "When you & me become we..."
My dear friend, you know who you are...Thankyou;)
