I am scheduling my outlook to remind me to write at least twice a week.

I am working, yo- i am busy, boo. I had to plan a toga party, organize a move, and make a car for a pinewood derby. Give me a break. I had to do this so I would be nominated for Employee of the week. And I was. After two months. And this is with several hundred employees, yo. I likeeeeee my jobeeeee. Yo.

This is my nephew. Apparently hailing a cab since he lives in New York. Actually, he lives in my Sister in law's womb at the current time but He will be renting an apartment on 34th and Broadway around September.

 When I asked my sister in law about this picture she thought it looked like the car scene from Titanic when Rose and Jack were getting in on in the back seat.

Happy Fathers Day

A mild day at home. We had my parents over for dinner and basically just chilled out for the rest of the day. Jeff got some Oakley Boots, a pair of shorts and a tooth tunes toothbrush that plays a KISS song when you brush your teeth. It was a very nice relaxing day. I have been so tired lately that it is hard to get up to do anything. I should be used to working by now. It has been almost two months.

Dear Alyssa,

We love you so much and we are so proud of how beautiful, smart, and amazing you have turned out to be. We can only hope that you love us a quarter of how much we love you.

Love Daddy, Mommy, and Emma.

a wowser weekend!

I had a cool beans weekend. Abbe's nephew, Joe is the Maitre' De at Red Square at Mandalay Bay. He is a real doll and he hooked Abbe up with a wonderful dinner at some of the restaurants there. She had friends from Florida in town and he hooked us up big time! We started the evening at China Grill. We had lychee shots and an amuse bouche of tuna tar tar on a cucumber with a mandarin orange. We left there to go to Rum Jungle and had a grave digger shot and an amuse bouche of this crazy good shrimp, tostada, seaweed thing that was my favorite of the whole evening. From there we went to our dinner reservations at Red Square. The only word I can think about is decadent! The chefs kept sending dishes out for us to try. We also took a tour in the Vodka Vault. It is kept at 5 - 7 degrees for customers to store their personal vodka bottles in at $5000 a year!!!! I felt like royalty. It was truly magical. Check out the AMAZING pictures here.

It was also Alyssa's 11th birthday party. She had 5 friends over for a sleep over. Plus Gage and Damen because they haven't been to any of the girls' parties because they have been all girl so it was a treat to have them with us. And to have everyone sleep over well, that was a first for me. It was very loud and screechy/ Everyone conked out at midnight and woke up again at 7. We took everyone who could go to IHOP for breakfast. Alyssa had a blast. My baby, she is eleven. Well, she will be tomorrow at 4:16 PM. Pictures of her party are here!

Sex and the Cyndi

You cannot possibly understand the passion I have for Sex and The City TV series. I watch it continuously (Not the TBS versions) and have read the book about 5 times. So when I heard about the movie I was very happy to say the least. I was NOT disappointed AT ALL!!!!  It is fabulous and perfect and amazing and Abbe and I cannot stop talking about it. She went with her nephew and sister and I went with my mom and her friend, Harriet. That's right folks, I went to see SEX and the City with my mommy. Fortunately there were only a few scenes that I had to hide under my seat for. I don't watch that show because it has crazy sex stories, I watch it because it is an extremely powerful show about friendships with women. It is that what draws me too it.

The movie was fab and I plan on seeing it again many times over.

I will not however go again and sit between my mom and her friend, Harriet because they would not stop squawking before the movie started. At one time I asked them if my breasts were getting in the way of their conversation and if they wanted me to move so they could sit together. They told me to shut up. No really, they did. I understand that finding the perfect gift for their gay hairstylists birthday was very important but I didn't need to hear all about it while I was shoveling popcorn in my mouth.

Alyssa is having her 11th birthday party this Saturday. My baby is 11 and all I can think about is that she could get into Hogwarts now. I have a really bad problem.
