New Year Wishes


For last year's words belong
to last year's language
and next year's words
await another voice. - T.S. Eliot

Hope you guys have a wonderful new years eve and a year full of love and joy. Here is to an amazing 2009!! Happy new year!!!

Tidying up 2008

Why do I feel that New Year’s Eve is such a big deal? After all it is just another night before another day. Scientifically it is, but in my mind it is so much more than that. The last night of the year is a time to tie up all loose ends and wipe the slate clean for the coming 365 days.

A friend once told me that the way you spend New Year’s Eve is how the whole year will be dictated. My grandmother passed away last December 31. Last New Year’s I felt sad, unsure, and uncertain - not a winning combination. The whole 2008 I felt like I had been run over by a school bus and for some reason it kept backing up on top of me! Aaahhhhh, again? Really?? A year like ’08 should never, ever, be repeated again!

This upcoming year I want things to be different. I was to feel 100% sure and in total control of my life. Is that weird or even possible? I want to say goodbye to the old and hello! to the new. I want to wake up every day renewed and in charge – easier said than done, but only time will tell.

Ok, Emails have been written, telephone calls will be made, and texts are ready to be sent tonight. So, now, I am just sitting here waiting for the clock to hurry up and move its little hands and put an end to a horrible year. Good riddance 2008!!

Milly's Graduation Party

It was so cold outside! Really, really cold for Houston. I debated going out, but decided that if I would have stayed home I would regret it (specially since the husband had his friends over to play poker and video games). So, I braved the elements and headed out. Phil (@ellis_king) met me for dinner and then we headed to my girl Milly's graduation party. The party was outside (crap!), but I was glad I had taken my Michelin jacket with me thinking that I was going to dispose of it once I got inside and I would look amazing in pictures. I was however hearing open toe shoes (double crap)! By the end of the night my little piggly wigglys were frozen solid. After the party we headed over to Shadow Bar for the after-party. Good times!!

Twitter Update

I did end up heading out for Mother's Night Out. We meet at Buca di Beppo and had a reservation for the kitchen table. Kind of weird to be hearing what is going on in the kitchen and having every single waiter stop by your table and tell you what they are carrying out. Anyway, I did have a good time, I skipped last month, so it was nice to see everyone again. I also took them all a little Christmas gift - a lottery ticket, but only one person won and they only won three dollar! Rip off!! I guess not the fun and exciting surprise I was hoping for.

The After Picture

Last Day of School

Baby Girl woke me up VERY early to get her hair done for the last day of school. For some reason she gets super excited about it; while I am looking like the Home Alone kid...AHHHHHHHHHH! Three kids and two weeks off from school.

KDChi Emerald Ball

OMG!! It was great to see, after so long, some of my old sister and meet some of the new ones. The night was fun, and yes, I ended up wearing my Kay Unger dress to the occasion. I will save the BCBGMaxAzria one for a formal in April (and hopefully it will fit amazingly then, I, of course, will keep you guys posted).

Monk Garb Coming Back in Fashion!


Cracking myself up...again!! It seems that the monk look is back in fashion. The commercial for this "new innovation" has people cheering at a sporting event. Why would anyone go out like that??

Link to Monk Garb. The video is hilarious.

Great Christmas gift since I am absolutely sure no one has one already!!

Bad Mood

I hate being in a mad mood. I think it sucks, but for some reason I cannot help it. The things that got me in a bad mood today were –

It is freezing outside and to top it off it started snowing! I hate cold weather. I think that anything below 70 degrees is, well, just not cool. I hate going out when it is cold outside. If it was up to me I would hibernate and wake up in the spring. I however have been a little more open to doing things in these dreaded months, but people can see that I am just not myself.

Second thing that got me in a bad mood is - my dresses. I am going to a formal on Friday. I had the most amazing dress lined up for the event, an amazing, did I say amazing already? BCGI MaxAzria, number. I got it on sale a while back hoping to use it on a special occasion, well, the thing is that the dress looks amazing, there is that word again, from the front, but there is a bulge on the back. My hips are just too wide! Yes, I can lose some weight, but how can I lose 2 inches by Friday? I went back to the closet and I am not happy with anything. Anyway, I go to the store this morning to purchase a dress I saw online and the store tells me that they ship ALL those dresses to another store. It is cold and I don’t want to drive anywhere else. I guess I am wearing a Kay Unger dress on Friday, ugh!

Since I was already in a bad mood and had to start getting ready for tonight’s event everything I decided to wear just seemed wrong, so I decided to just stay home. Bah, humbug!

Third thing – I hate not finding things. Instead of accepting that my house is a giant black hole and everything put down will never be seen again, I try to look for things and get enraged when I cannot find something. When will I learn?

On the way to my mom’s house to drop Baby Girl off (the kids are spending the night over there since I was supposed to be at an event tonight) the snow started to come down fast. BG got super excited; she kept talking about how this day was going to be her number one memory and how awesome it was that it was snowing in Houston. She kept pointing at the sky and looking at it like it was the first time she has ever been outside. I reached over and touched her cheek in hopes that some her passion would somehow infect me. On the drive home I really looked outside, seeing all that snow come down was really a sight. On the driveway I stood still for a couple of minutes letting the snowflakes land on my face. It really felt good to just stand there and enjoy the moment - something I should really do a lot more of instead of getting in a bad mood for things that really don’t matter.

Merry Christmas to ME!!


My holidays are getting a little brighter. I just me the Dior Cannage Medium bag. I know, I know, it is really for next Spring/Summer, but I got it on sale with free shipping and no tax from eluxury, so I could not resist. This bag will look fabulous with both pairs of nude tone shoes I bought for next year. Yay me! I am so excited!!

Tiara Happy Hour

This month's Houston Tiaras was held at Coffee Groundz.  The night was extremely chilly, but we just hung around the heaters.  I had a good time overall except for my feet that were killing me.  A small price to pay for wearing amazing boots!

Early Christmas Shopping

After writing over 125 customer thank you cards, I decided that it was time to go shopping. I usually do all my shopping the day after Thanksgiving, yes, at four in the morning, but this year since all the stores were having pre-Thanksgiving sales I decided that saving an extra 10% was not enough for me to get out of bed at 3am.

Anyway, I drove to the store and proceeded to pick out all my items. I was thinking that maybe I should just look and go back on Friday when all the toys would be 50% off rather than just 40%, but the thought of getting up made me just stick to my original plan. When it comes to sales I am really cheap. It is weird because I do not mind spending A LOT of money buying a purse, I guess because Gucci never has a sale and because all I can really do is buy from eluxury just to make sure I do not pay the sales tax and get free shipping. When it comes to “normal” items I am a little psycho in trying to find the lowest price possible.

Ok, back to my story, I get the items and go check-out. Imagine my elation when the cashier tells me that I can save and EXTRA 15% by applying for a store card; I do not have to use the card all I have to do is apply!!! I was so excited. Yesterday I won a Wii Fit and today I am getting an extra 15% off in purchases that was bitting the bullet and getting because I did not want to get up so early in the morning. Wow, it is my lucky day. After the shopping spree I made my way to my local gas station where I purchased five lotto tickets and three scratch-offs. I have not checked them yet, but I could be a millionaire.

I Won!!!

I attended the Mom 2.0 Kick-Off Party tonight and I won a Wii Fit!! Not only that, but I also won a free ticket to the conference. Man, it is my lucky day. I never win anything, so it was a nice surprise.

Lighting of The Doves

My daughter had her first twirling gig today at The Lighting of The Doves at The Woodlands. She only began twirling a couple of months ago, but I think she did really well for a newbie. She also looked simply adorable in her outfit and red ponytail bows.

High School Reunion Planning MTG #3
And since I had a reunion planning meeting in town I decided just to hang out and wait for the Happy Hour to begin. The reunion committee met at Cadillac Bar, the place that we were thinking of using...we do have to tested out and all!! We did decided that the Cadillac Bar was a perfect fit for our event. I am glad that has been decided.



We had a blast and I think disclosed just a little bit too much, like high school crushes. I just hope it is not brought up ever again ;(

High School Reunion - MTG #2

I attended my second high school reunion planning meeting today. Things are going well, I think we have decided to plan and put together the event ourselves rather than use a planning reunion service. This will mean a lot more work for those involved, but we will have more control of how we want things done. Is that good or bad? don't know yet!

This time for dessert I made Walnut Brownies and took some vanilla ice cream to accompany my chocolate creations. Yummy!!

Huh, once again, I used to be incredibly shy in high school, so it is a little weird to me that I would want to be involved as much as I am, since realistically I AM meeting my classmates for the first time. So far everyone has been super nice, so I hope that things continue as well as they are. If not, I will just have to eat my $50 worth of food at the reunion party!

The internet

The internet has let me down! I usually rely on the internet to find pretty much everything in my life. I use it to find items for my kid's birthday parties, I use it to find long lost friends and to remind me why there are so, and I use it to search for any diseases I might be having. How else would I of known that was dying from a malignant tumor last year?! Anyway, the internet completely let me down this time.

How hard can it be to find a black mini dress with split-sleeves?? Huh??? It is nearly impossible. I have been searching for a couple of days now to no avail. I pretty much have had to settle for a tunic with 3/4 sleeves, which I am pretty sure will be way too short, I guess I will be flashing a some people. On top of that the dress, err tunic, I am settling for is costing me $158!

I am still kinda pissed off about this whole internet business. You would think that in today's day and age all I would have to do is type an item description and have the exact item I want just pop up. There would be no days on end looking for that magical dress that in my mind will make me look amazing. In a perfect world the item would just be there waiting for me...sigh.

Feel Like Crying

Why do I always let the stupid, insignificant stuff affect me?
Today I took The Sequel to his weekly Kindermusik class. This was his second class, because everything was kinda shaken up after Ike. During the first week, he went into the room, but did not participate. This week he refused to go in! The class started and the teacher was nice enough to leave the door open. When things got a little loud the teacher told The Sequel that he had to decide whether he was staying out or coming in. Anyway, when I closed the door I felt like shit. I felt judged my the parents that were in the hall waiting for their perfect children to finish their class. I literary felt like sobbing. I know it is stupid to feel like that, but I just do.

Know The Sequel says he wants to go back to gymnastics. Last Spring I pay the Registration Fee (yes, all these places have a registration fee! PLUS the monthly fees) and the tuition for TWO months. All he did was sit by me.

Part of me is telling me to leave him alone, but the other part of my brain feels that he needs to be out with other children his age. He needs to learn teamwork, participation, waiting your turn, and listening to instructions. I am frustrated with this kid. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Rest in Peace Mr. Dover

I hate funerals; well I don’t really hate them. I just hate the fact that you get a heavy dose of reality. Death is something that you can not talk your way out of, you can not cry and hope someone lets you off, you can not beg, plead, or hope. It WILL happen. You are just sitting there one day surrounded by your friends and family and the next day you are not. You are dead and the world did not stop moving, it did not even slow down! There are no changes except that you have ceased to exist, erased from the world. The only people that knew you were even here are your children, family, and friends. To everyone else in the world your life and death did not mean anything and pretty soon, to your future generations you will not mean anything either. It is just so sad how someone’s life has so little meaning in the context of the world.

Women and Their Need for Boys

I am so completely angry! The following story twisted my guts.

Egyptian Woman Gives Birth to Septuplets

I just can not believe that in today’s day and age women still feel that they have to have male children. It is so sad. On top of that she would jeopardize her family’s financial well being to bring to earth seven more children. I really hope that whatever incentive she would be receiving by having male heirs would be enough to now be responsible for ten kids. But, I am way more angry at the fact that she used the phrase “Let God's will prevail” after deciding NOT to do an abortion to get rid of some of the babies, but failed to say the same thing before starting fertility treatments!

I AM ODD

I just figured out I am one of those odd people. The other day I was looking for a transcript and ran across some phonebooks (you know, the ones that you WROTE someone’s phone number on). I decided that it would be a good idea to see if anyone popped up in MySpace or Classmates. Some people from my past did, so I decided to email them and say “hello!”

Even though everyone that I contacted said “hi!” back, I still feel a little odd. Why do I keep all my old phonebooks and letters? Why do I have the need to reach out? I have had a fun life and hope that everyone that was with me at the time feels the same way, but does that mean that 15 years from now these people want to hear from me?

Yes, you are right, I need to give up and only search for people I currently know. That is going to be hard and will take a little getting used to, but it beats being that weird girl that doesn’t let go of things.

By the way, I do welcome odd people, so if anyone from my past knows me please email me, don't be shy, I would love to hear from you!

Love Me, Love My Doll - Creepy

I pride myself in being an open minded individual. I think that people have the right to live their life however they see fit, but nothing, and I mean NOTHING, could prepare me for the BBC America Reveals - Love Me, Love My Doll program. My mouth remained opened in disbelief throughout the whole show.

The 60-minute episode was about people, well, better said, men that have “relationships” with dolls. You know those real looking, life size dolls that cost thousands of dollars. When I say “relationship” I mean that these men actually think that they are having a boyfriend/girlfriend type of relationship with the doll. Some of them have actually given up dating, like one guy said “organic” women to pursuit, is pursuit the right word here?, cohabitating with dolls! One guy even went as far as to take family pictures with his plastic, perfectly proportioned, girlfriend.

I saw Lars and the Real Girl a couple of months back and thought that the movie a little kooky. The flick deals with a guy that buys a doll and lives with it until he meets a real girl. I guess the movie idea had to come from somewhere. Man, I have seen it all now.

By the way I LOVE the BBC’s Reveals series. It is kinda like FX, but with real people.

My Adventures in Plastic Surgery

If you guys ever want your self esteem to go way down go see a plastic surgeon. Why would anyone want that? I dunno, but this doctor completely ripped my rose color glasses off my face and proceeded to beat me up while I was desperately looking for them.

I have been loosing weight lately, but after having three kids your body just does not look like it is supposed to. I am thinking of having the surgery next summer and thought that it would be a good idea to go and see several doctors and have all my questions answered.

Anyway, back to my story. There is absolutely no way to look cute in that room. Fluorescent lighting does not do anyone any good! Secondly, you are given a paper robe and tiny mesh underwear that is many sizes too big. The doctor comes in and quickly removes the robe. Why the robe is there, I don’t know, maybe to let you keep a small piece of dignity. The doctor pretty much has his way with you, he puts his hands all over your body and NOT those feel good places either! He squashes your boobies for you to see what they will look like after surgery. He then makes you lie down and with all his might pull every fatty, pump or is it the lumps? down to show you what changes you can expect after he is done with you.

At some point I asked the doctor what the chances were of me being able to get an implant rather than getting a breast lift and he replies “with the massive sagging…” All I could say was “I don’t think I will EVER be able to be naked in front of anyone again”. He replies “No, do not worry, we see naked people all the time”. “No, I don’t mean that, I just don’t think I could ever show my saggy titties to anyone again!”

If that was not all, his female assistant is standing right there taking notes and looking at you! The stomping on the self esteem does not end there, once the consult is over the assistant takes pictures of you in the most embarrassing poses ever. She takes the befores and those pics are all I will forever see while trying to strike a sexy pose in bed.

No dinner, no cash, I had never felt so used before. All I could do was gather what little dignity I had left, put my clothes on, and walk out of that room with my head held high.

Momacation

I just got back from my momacation to Boston. I visited my last place of employment, it was really nice to see some of my old coworkers again. It reminded me that I really, really, miss having a job. I miss the birthdays, happy hours, and get-togethers. I am a people person - don't you all just hate when someone says that?! - so I miss the everyday people interaction. Anyway, back to my momacation. I also had dinner with some friends, that was nice. On the weekend I did some driving and sightseeing in New Hampshire. I LOVE IT!! I had completely forgotten how nice the weather is this time of year and how absolutely crisp the sky looks. If I ever win the lotto - don't jinx me - I will buy a little bitty summer house in New England. Ahh, wishing.
