Peer Pressure

Everyone is doing it so I figured I should too.....
Being a Getaway virgin I had no idea what to expect, to be honest I was just looking forward to getting away and spending some time with Kim. I had no idea it was going to be so amazing! I met some awesome woman

The best part about it was getting to spend the weekend with
Kim it had been way too long!!!

Peg coordinated everything and did an amazing job doing so. The skits they did for talent night were hysterical.

Dar posted some awesome pictures.

Shaunte wrote a peom about it.

Glenni introduced us to some interesting art.

We celebrated Vee's birthday.

I finally got to meet Luz

I can't wait to do it again next year!!!!

Let's Go Mountaineers

I am definately a Jersey Girl (minus the teased hair)I am proud of my accent, and how I "tawk" however, I HATE RUTGERS!!!

I am so glad to report my boys in blue from Morgantown beat the pants off the Scarlet Knights.

(7) West Virginia (7-1, 2-1 Big East) 31
Rutgers (5-3, 2-2 Big East) 3

New Jersey is redoing their travel ad campaign and are using things like the Monmouth Race Track, Atlantic City and Rutgers Football as reasons to come to NJ. Are you kidding me, I thought the purpose of an ad campaign was to get people to come to the state, using Rutgers Football is hardly a reason to do anything.....

How small are we

The other day I was driving to work admiring the look of the clouds as the sun started to fill the sky. It was one of those moments when I really wished I had my camera and was skilled enough to drive a stick shift in traffic and take a good picture at the same time. I was speaking to Kim and she said "Oh my God you should see how beautiful the sky is" we talked a little about the clouds and the sun and the effect it had and it made me feel like we were looking at the exact same sky. Even though she is in Northern VA and I am in good old NJ.

Of course since I spent the weekend with Kim I "caught" her "illness" you know the one where you say something and she immediately starts singing a song with some of the same words in it no matter how appropriate or not appropriate it is......

Somewhere Out There

written by James Horner, Barry Mann, Cynthia Weil

Somewhere out there beneath the pale moonlight
Someone's thinking of me and loving me tonight

Somewhere out there someone's saying a prayer
That we'll find one another in that big somewhere out there

And even though I know how very far apart we are
It helps to think we might be wishing on the same bright star

And when the night wind starts to sing a lonesome lullaby
It helps to think we're sleeping underneath the same big sky

Somewhere out there if love can see us through
Then we'll be together somewhere out there
Out where dreams come true

And even though I know how very far apart we are
It helps to think we might be wishing on the same bright star

And when the night wind starts to sing a lonesome lullaby
It helps to think we're sleeping underneath the same big sky

Somewhere out there if love can see us through
Then we'll be together somewhere out there
Out where dreams come true

I had a great weekend at getaway and have had every intention of blogging about it sooner but work has been crazy!!! The only thing helping me keep my sanity is the Bon Jovi concert on Friday. Not sure what I am looking more forward to, the concert or keeping to spend time with Cheryl and Megan. Either way I know it is going to be a blast

This could make Stupid News

I think someone on the West Virginia side line should make sure these two don't sit next to each other anymore.


As we all know October is breast cancer awareness month. This is something that hits home for me. My Godmother and Aunt (same person) lost her fight to breast cancer 3 years ago leaving behind 2 young children. Each and every night I pray that other families will not have to go through what my family went through and they find a cure for this awful disease.

Breast cancer is something we should pay attention to all year round, not just in October. One of the girls who works with me just participated in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer one of the many cool things she got during her walk was this button I love it!! I can't wait to find out if I can get one- I think it is great!! Some other great ones are the shirts you can get at
Save the Tatas they are hysterical. It helps to be able to take a comedic approach to such an awful and deadly disease.

A List

The other day I was talking to Kimmie online and she aske me if I had a list. I asked her what the hell she was talking about and she said "you know, a list of things you want to do before you die" I told her no, but I would love to see her list. She said she had been thinking alot about it, I am sure some of those thoughts were inspired by Ali Edwards and Stephanie Roberts regardless of where the inspiration came from it is something I too have been thinking about. It is hard to come up with 100 things I want to do before I die, I think it is kind of morbid. What happens if I am fortunate enough to accomplish all things in the next 15 years, does that mean my life would be over? I guess it could be a list you continue to update and add too, especially as you accomplish things on that list.

Stephanie started a link on her blog where you can add your list and continue to update it as you accomplish things- you have the support of everyone who reads her blog. Not sure if my list is something I want to publish for the world wide web to read but it is something I have been thinking about. Currently my list only has 11 things on it, would it be cheating if I read other people's lists and borrowed their goals?

Off to create my list, I think once it is done I am going to hang it on the refigerator as if it was an important homework assignment.

Interesting Life

I enjoy reading blogs and always wonder how or where people come up with the stories that they share with the world. I feel like my life is not nearly interesting enough or that nothing exciting/entertaining ever happens in my life. That is until tonight.....

It is Wednesday which means Yoga. (D has been going for years and convinced me to start going the beginning of this year- I love it) We usually go together but D had a meeting after work so I was going to go by myself (no big deal, happens often) I gab my water bottle and my keys and head out to the car. As the door closes behind me, I go to put my key in the lock to lock the deadbolt (the lock on the doorknob is always locked) and realize the keys I grabbed were my work keys, not the house/car keys. So now I am locked out of the house and have no car keys to go anywhere. Not only am I going to miss yoga, I need to find something to do until D gets back from his meeting. So I start walking.... I send a text to my sister and D telling them I locked myself out of the house/car and am walking to the book store. I send D another message saying my phone is dying (isn't that my luck) and to please come straight home after the meeting- I will be at Barnes & Noble waiting for him. I walk the 1.3 miles to B&N in about 20 minutes (very proud of myself for that) and waited there for about an hour and a half for D to get there. Thankfully they had tons of scrap magazines and books I hadn't seen so the time went by pretty quickly.

The good news is I am now home safe and sound the bad news is reading all those magazines gave me so many ideas I want to scrap the night away but I have to be at work tomorrow at 8:30 so I can't stay up until the wee hours of the morning (damn it)

Prior to my adventure this evening I did get some stuff accomplished around the house- I changed my doormat from my summer one to the fall one, put new placemats and napkins on the kitchen table and put away some laundry- all of those are reasons why I could never be a stay at home wife/mother- I hate all that domestic BS!
