Hippity Hoppity Easter Y’all!


Six Weeks and Counting

Six weeks.




I’m so freaking excited.  I need a vacation.  You have no idea how badly I need this vacation.  We’re heading to Colorado again, for two weeks this year.  I can’t wait to relax, recharge, enjoy my husband and family.

This year, we’re doing an overnight trip to Colorado Springs again.  We went two years ago, and it was hard to enjoy everything I wanted to because I weighed 134 pounds more than I do now.  We’re going to Cripple Creek again this year, and Garden of the Gods, and (my husband is terribly excited about this next one) a bordello museum, because we’re classy like that.

And I’m not taking my laptop.  Nope.  No way.  So work can’t reach me.  My boss is terrified of going 2.5 weeks without me, but oh well.  He’ll live.

Colorado here we come!!

Red Fridays- Until They All Come Home

So, I’m sure you’ve seen the meme going about Red Fridays where folks are wearing something red every Friday in support of our troops overseas.  We’ll wear our red proudly every Friday until they are all home and reunited with their families.

My problem – I only have one red shirt.

So I”m participating in odd ways.  Last week, I wore my garnet necklace and earrings.  And my red underwear.  Not that anyone but me could see it.  Today – I painted my toe nails red.  All hail pedicures.

Even if the meme is hokey, I have always believed in supporting our military and their families.  I may not be in full support of why they are over there doing what they are doing, but I support them, and they job they do for this country.  I salute military families – for being brave enough to repeatedly be separated from the ones they love to put their life on the life for us.  I have friends in the military.  I have family in the military.  They are doing a job I personally could not do.  And I think it’s very unselfish of them.

So, until all Moms and Dads, husbands and wives, brothers and sisters, lovers and friends are back home safe, every single Friday something on my person will be red.  In their honor or in their memory.  Until they all come home.
