A Couple Things.

Every once in a while I have to write a post entitled, "A Couple Things." It is just a random writing of things that I have buzzing around in my brain. They are really of no consequence to anyone but me, and they are certainly of no interest. But they are my thoughts and I'm proud of them.


Humor me.

1. So I just finished watching The Real Housewives of New Jersey (season 2) finale and can I just say..............I love that show. It is as gaudy and outlandish as I am. I never thought I'd say these words, but I'm pretty sure that had God not given me the great privilege of being born in Texas He would have had me born in Jersey. I feel right at home watching that show. Please talk to me if you like it. Because I really need someone to agree with me on what a nut-job Danielle is. Oh, and because I have absolutely nothing else going on, I took the What Housewife of New Jersey Are You quiz, on Bravotv.com, and I'm Dina (thank the sweet Lord.)




2. Rocco is turning 2 in a week and all I can think about are those horrific video clips they show at the opening of Super Nanny each week of the kids she's going to tame, and there's always that one boy who throws himself down in the grocery store or ties a cat to the front of a car. I'm not gonna lie, a 2 year old boy scares me. Is it is hard as I'm imagining it to be? Because up to this point he's been a dream, but I'm gonna be honest, he's starting to show some tendencies toward juvenile delinquency. He's just so darn cute that I'm thinking he could tie a cat to a car and who would notice as long as he was batting those eyelashes. See? Already, I'm in trouble.



3. I am on day 13 of no sodas. I hesitate to say "no caffeine" because I don't seem to be as addicted to caffeine, per say, as I am to sodas. In other words, I don't have to have a Starbucks every day or a coffee every day - but I had gotten to the point where I was drinking a Dr. Pepper every day. Isn't that horrible? So I am on day 13 and I've already lost 12 pounds. Ha! Ha! Not really, in fact, I'm thinking of starting to take up Coke again simply because if I'm still gonna be fat I'm at least gonna be fat and quenched.


4. The AG is driving me crazy to have my blog re-upholstered. (Side note: He's driving me crazy about a lot of things, but that's a different post.) So I am needing your help. I would like to know some blogs that you read that you think have a great look. I am stuck in a blog rut anyway and need some new ones to look over. I want something bright (no more black) and easy to read. I want something with clean lines and not froo-froo. So help a girl out. Do you know of any blog designers that I might need to look into? I pay really well. Okay, that's a lie. But I do have about 14 cases of Dr. Pepper I'd like to get rid of.


5. The AG and I's anniversary is coming up this weekend. 16 years. Its going to be so romantic. He is going out of town for a leadership conference and I'm going to spend the evening with my two children watching Nanny McPhee and shaving my legs. Now I ask you, how New Jersey is that?

I confess to watching the show. I currently live in the Garden State (NJ-most people do not think Garden State when they think NJ)...anyway, my hubs office is in the town where they mostly live and we happened to eat in the restaurant where the Dina/Danielle debacle took place just one day earlier.

I have not taken the quiz but would consider myself lucky to be a Dina as opposed to...really anyone else. I agree Danielle has real issues but I have to say Ashley (Jacqueline's daughter) is almost as annoying. In fact, I think she needs to be put in her place because if she isn't put in her place now I fear she may be the Danielle of the future. Ok-obviously I watch the show. I can't say I like it but I cannot turn away either. Oh, and a friend of mine met Caroline at a book signing and said she was not friendly at all.

For the blog templates...I really like Simply Fabulous Blogger Templates. They're cute, clean, and best of all free. It's where I got the one for my main blog. I love it.

I'm a blog designer. And since we both have East Texas roots, I think you should choose me. :)

You can check out my website- http://www.pinkarmchairdesigns.com or my Facebook fan page. Frankly, I'm way undercharging and I'll work with you to give you whatever you want...as far as blog design goes. I do alot of frou-frou, but I can streamline with the best of them.

Let me know if you're interested!

Ok; don't no a thing about Jersey housewives but you do have me curious now.
Blog design; I know even less but a new look every once in a while is like cleaning out your closets; feels good! So basicly I am no help to you. Ha

My experience is that a two year old boy is a breeze...until he turns 3. For us, three was much much much worse than two. The closer we got to three the naughtier the monster became. But, now that he's getting closer to 4...life is getting easier. Or, I'm getting numb.

Ah, don't worry about 2 year old boys! You'll be fine.

3 year old boys, however, if they're like mine, will have you hanging on for dear life, screaming for mercy.

So no, no, absolutely no need to worry about 2.

Not at all.

Toddlers have indeed earned quite a reputation. I must say that I learned to stretch my patience during this stage. Some days are bad, but there are others that will make you realize that it's super fun to have a toddler. But I am sure you will do fine. Happy anniversary. =)

Girls are harder than boys, in my opinion. More energetic, but definitely easier and less dramatic than girls....

I was just looking at your blog today and thinking, as cute at the pic of Remi is at the top, we need some Rocco up in he-ah!

12 years is about the same as 16 I guess. I can't even remember what we did for our anniversary this year. They come and go and I look at my husband and think....I'm just glad we survived another year.

That pic of your stinker at the bottom is killing me! She is too cute!!!
