Birthday 2010!

10 Jun

It was awesome! Benihana was very yummy (though maybe not as good as Kobe) and Pat O’Briens at City Walk was a good time! But most of all the people were awesome. Thanks to everyone who came out or texted me or hit me up on Facebook.

Here is the official Benihana photo:

Twenty-nine Years Ago the World Changed

6 Jun

Yup, you have it right. Twenty-nine years ago in a hospital in Springfield, Illinois a young woman was making history. She was giving birth to her first, and best, child. A ravishing young baby who would turn out to be one of the great blog minds on the internet.

Yup, that is right. It is my twenty-ninth birthday!! This also means I’m starting my thirtieth year! WOW! Mom, you are old! j/k

Just imagine this, only with a Benihana hat!

Tonight some family, friends and I will be hitting up Benihana! It is my first trip to the “original” as I have only eaten at Kobe (like last year!). Kobe is REALLY good, but I have to try out Benihana and see if they do anything to make them special. Oh yea, and they give you $30 to spend if its your birthday!

Goat Trauma Awareness Month

5 Jun

Yes everyone, June is Goat Trauma Awareness Month. I may be stealing my friend, the keeper of monkeys, thunder by talking about awareness but this one was too big to ignore.

You can learn more about the horror that is childhood goat trauma on The Childhood Goat Trauma Foundation’s website. Including the very chilling goat trauma in action section.

It is almost too much for me, goats are scary. Especially the theatrical kind! Just kidding Greater Orlando Actor’s Theatre!

Miami Bound!

21 May

Sorry for the lack of posts this week. I’ve been dealing with a couple things that have kept me off my game.

#1 I had a busy week at work and was working at 5:30am!!! I’m not a fan of waking up at 4:25am btw.

#2 My leg mysteriously developed a nasty red area that blistered up. It looks like I dropped an iron on my leg. Probably a post about this tomorrow (if I can get it written here while packing).

This afternoon after JC gets off of work we are heading to Miami. We are going to spend the weekend hanging out with JC’s good friend from college. I believe that as of now on Saturday we plan on heading to Key West. Somewhere I’ve never been. Hopefully it will be a nice relaxing and recharging weekend.

One final thought for today. I’m going to ask for everyone to send some prayers out for JC. This morning she had an interview for a teaching job in the fall. She should hear next week whether she got it or not. I’m hoping that some good thoughts going through the air can help her out. She is a great girl and deserves a great job.

Happy Birthday Jenny Cate!!!!

13 May

Today is a VERY VERY special day! It is Jenny Cate’s birthday!

Us looking hot!

Alright everyone, sing along!

Happy birthday to you!

Happy birthday to you!

Happy birthday  Jenny Cate!

Happy birthday to you!!!!!

I’m so thrilled to be able to share in this birthday with you sweetie! I love you so much and thank God that he put you in my life!

Proof She is Amazing

8 May

So, you may have read my post on Cinco de Mayo. It was a little thing I worked hard on to show my feelings across the internet. If you didn’t read it, you should (as long as you like sappy love notes).

Anyways. To show my love and affection I got JC some pretty earrings. I did a good job but she did much better! She was sneaky and got something I didn’t expect at all. She caught me off guard and I love it!

One Amazing Year!!!

5 May

One year ago today I drove up from Kissimmee to share a margarita with you at Chili’s. It all started a few days earlier when I invited you to join me and our common friend Fifi at Disney for her birthday.

I wore a Woot! shirt and a duck butt hat. I didn’t know that I was looking so hot!

You had already said no but from friends it grew. It took me a while to figure it out but I eventually knew. Wow, did I just rhyme? I feel like Dr. Suess! Continue reading

Beautiful Blogger Award…

26 Feb

Yea…that is right. Someone thinks I’m beautiful! Apparently 2nd most beautiful of her blogging friends apparently!

My good (real life) friend Kati on her blog, What a World…, nominated me for the “Beautiful Blogger Award.”

Here are the rules for accepting this award:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you for the award.
  2. Copy and paste the award on your blog.
  3. Link to the person who nominated you for the award.
  4. Share seven interesting things about yourself.
  5. Nominate your own seven Beautiful Bloggers.

Here we go…

  1. Thank You Kati!!!!
  2. Done above
  3. Done above
  4. Seven INTERESTING things? This may be up to someone else’s interpretation but here goes:
  • I’m a HUGE Disney pin fan. I love going to Disney (or even just Downtown Disney) and scouring employees pins looking for good ones to steal from them. I’ve been thinking about blogging about this…maybe soon?
  • I have the most beautiful girlfriend in the world. Straight up! I’m beyond lucky to have found someone so amazing who just fits with me (which isn’t easy BTW).
  • My hair is falling out. So much so that it creates “Joe Bunnies” (as JC coined them) that appear in the bathroom and try to escape. I’m worried that one day my hair may lead to the downfall of the human race.
  • As I said in my post yesterday, I’ve read more books this year than I had in many many years (maybe my whole life). I have a hard time getting into books and lose interest quickly. I also will develop headaches after long periods of reading. Lame.
  • I have recently started singing in a church choir again and am REALLY enjoying it. The choir at Tuskawilla Presbyterian Church is REALLY good and Pastor Chris has interesting sermons. It finally got to the point where I decided to join the church. As of Valentine’s Day I’m an official member! They had to vote on us, scary, and I passed!! Woo Hoo
  • I don’t have a lot of self-confidence. Prime example, this list! Writing seven things about myself is really hard. I’d much rather talk about a movie or some stupid internet fad then about myself. I also get REALLY nervous when I sing in front of people. I’m ok in the choir but I sang a solo at Christmas and will be singing a duet (with JC) coming up. I’ll probably have a heart attack that day
  • Last thing! I’m going to Italy this summer!!! WOOO HOOOO. I’m going with JC and some of her family. We will be visiting Venice, Florence and Rome. Maybe even going to squeeze some roller coastering in!!

5. I don’t think I know seven bloggers personally and one that I DO know tagged me (which means I probably can’t tag her!). I’ll tag Jessica, Joe and Rob.

Thanks again Kati for tagging me and I hope everyone enjoyed learning some “interesting” things about me. I’m beautiful!

I WON! Again!

22 Feb

So, here we are again. I have not written much again. I know! I suck! What am I gonna do about it? Well, I don’t know. I’m not online nearly as much as I used to be, so it is more difficult to put together the edge of your seat, check your feed everyday content that I used to put up. Sorry. What I can tell you is that you get a post for today and I’ll have one for tomorrow! WOO HOO!!

So, with that of business taken care of…guess what…I WON!!!!!

My great friend and AMAZING blogger, The Keeper of Monkeys, held a 1,000 comment contest and I DIDN’T have the 1,000 comment. But giving her sister and other half of the Two Florida Girls a prize from Two Florida Girls would be a bit lame. So I apparently had the 1,001 comment. I was the default winner!! WOO HOO

I get to pick out something from the Two Florida Girls Etsy shop. I’m not sure what I’m going to get. They have some great stuff, but I’m thinking that I might get something for a lady in my life. Which one? I dunno. I’ll figure it out soon though Kt!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!!!

25 Dec

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone out there! To those I love and to those I don’t even know, I wish for you to have what you want and need this Holiday season!
