There are just some days that you will remember for all of your life. what you were doing, where you were, how you felt. Today I stayed glued to the TV all day watching the earthquake/tsunami and aftermath. My heart breaks for all those people in Japan that are disconnected from their friends and family tonight, not knowing where they are or if they are alive.

I can count the other times I was glued to the tv on one hand
  1. Charles and Dianas wedding
  2. Dianas funeral
  3. 9-11
  4. The Iran Hostage Crisis
  5. When Mark McGwire beat the home run record.
 Of course some of those are more important that others..When have you been glued to your TV all day?

Pet Peeves

Having to ask for something more than once at a restaurant.

People that ask "where are you at" or "where did you get that at"..I can't be the only one that had to sit through English class and learn about proper Grammar.

Teenage girls..need I say more?

People that leave comments on my blogs that have NOTHING to do with the blog..they usually go something like this "your newest follower please check out my blog at xxxxxx" , I usually delete these or ignore them...if you'd at least say SOMETHING about the blog you just read I'd be more apt to come check out your blog.

Blogs that are 99% product people really keep following you?

I think that about does it today...time to go spread some cheer!

Reality Recap

It's time again for my reality recap! So many shows are on right now that I'm watching..I'm in heaven!

A new one on OWN that I've been following is Breaking Down The Bars
It is a show about women in prison and their everyday struggles to do the right thing and get ready to re-enter society. One of the last shows I watched a young woman was working towards getting her G.E.D. so she could get 180 days off of her sentence. It makes me wonder what incentive is there for girls that already have their degree. Doesn't really seem fair, but I am all for getting these girls more educated.

This last week on the Style network Ruby returned! She had gained some of her weight back and it looks like this season will be focusing more on her past and what triggered her to gain so much weight in the first place. As much as she drives me crazy with her "hacky" (instead of Happy) talk, I do love watching her journey! It's so easy for us as viewers to see her toxic relationship with her ex boyfriend but it's hard to cut someone out of your life that has been there for so many years. Good luck Ruby! I'm cheering for you.

The original "real housewives" cast is back! The Real Housewives of the OC is one of my guilty pleasures. Vic and I watched the first episode last night (we had recorded it earlier) I think because we keep our lives Drama Free, we enjoy watching it on TV. These women drive me crazy but in many ways I wish that I had the nerve to speak my mind the way that they do. Who hasn't fantasized once or twice about throwing a drink in someones face? lol  It's mean girls at it's finest but there are no victims to feel sorry for..they are all mean!

Those are my three recaps for this week...what are YOU watching?

Saturday Adventures

  Today we bought two car seats for our miniature dachshund's. Dexter loved his. DJ ...not so much. I think he broke his. We live just a few minutes away from the dog park and had to stop in between to catch them from trying to get out of their new seats. They were worn out on the way home so it was not an issue.

We also stopped by Sharkys for a bite to eat. The weather and beach were beautiful! It was an  hour wait..welcome to season!
