Just Stuff

I am a little down because I leave tomorrow for a week-long work trip to PA. Though I love seeing my colleagues a few times a year, I hate to leave Chris and James behind.

James has been changing so much and so quickly--right now his favorite two phrases are "What color is this?" and "Wait, Mommy, WAIT!!!" I adore my guys.

Chris took us to NY NY Casino today to a little place called "Fulton Fish Frye" which is seemingly the only place to get decent fried seafood without spending a bundle. We got fried fish and shrimp, hush puppies, french fries and coleslaw. YUM!!!! Thanks babe for giving us a fun day together when I am all emotional and blue about leaving you.

And of course, what could be better than the fact that a Ben & Jerry's is right next door? I mean . . . H-E-L-L-O!!!! What makes me so happy right now? ICE CREAM!!! And James, too, apparently, as he chowed down half of my cone (what? you recognize that flavor as "coffee, Coffee, Buzz, Buzz, Buzz?") Big deal--a little caffeine, some espresso bean chocolate? He LOVED IT!

We also got to people watch, which I love--and point out all of the terrible clothing choices people make. I mean, come on, how many times do we have to say it? Please wear a freakin' bra if you are more than a b-cup, don't wear dark hose with sandals, try not to dress like a serial killer, and for Gosh sakes don't squeeze into pants that give you a muffin top! (I mean, I'm no expert, but I do watch "What Not to Wear" and I saw many candidates for that show today!)

And remember that little poll I asked you all to vote on about what to do with my hair? Well, it's gone, baby, gone! Oh yeah, and I am lovin' it!!!

So friends, I leave tomorrow morning and won't be back until Friday night. I probably won't be posting from the road, so I'll see ya later.

Yes--I changed my blog back--AGAIN. I swear I don't know what my deal is--I can design other people's blogs and love them and still hate my own!!

Oh, and I almost forgot-- Gini--Happy Birthday! and Katie--best wishes on the birth of your new baby girl (scheduled for Friday!)

Outta here,

Looking great there with that new haircut. Verrrry stylish.

Have a good week away - it will go really quickly and you will be back to tickling James' toes in no time.

Have fun on your trip!!

Fried seafood - yum! I can't wait to hit Bob's Clam Hut in Kittery in a couple of weeks. I'm down with the short haircut - just cut all mine off, too.

Have a great trip! Hope it flies by for you.
