Vindicated Woman

If you had the opportunity of warning your significant other prior pms'ing would you? Well, now you can! Seriously. Pms buddy is a free online menstrual tracker that will send alerts to your other half sending warnings of mood swings, aggression, tearfulness, and obsessiveness with chocolate. Not only do they send words of warning-they advise and counsel as well.

The website reads-"When all else fails, flowers will always do the trick. They are kryptonite to PMS". That is a great suggestion! Now, if we can get our men to adhere to it.

Check it out. I find it completely comical.

I Know It's Early. But,....

I am really excited for Wicked to finally come to Utah. I've been wanting to see the musical which is based on Gregory Maguire's novel for such a long time. Soon, it will be in Utah at Capitol Theatre. I'm overly excited now, because my mom and dad just went to see Wicked in New York and loved it. Only about eight more months...seems like such a long time. But I'm sure it's well worth the wait.

What Do You Think?

So, working in the media, I have the opportunity to view many story ideas. I also get to view and sometimes critique other media outlets stories. It's a great job and I love to hear and read responses and comments on different topics in the news.
Today, this website made its way in to the media and has gained much attention from viewers everywhere. Take a look at it. I'd like to hear your response and read your views on it.

Everything You Want to Know

I've been thinking of several different topics to blog about tonight...but nothing seems to pique my interest. So, I'd like to hear from my readers. What would you like me to blog about? What things do you want to hear from me? I'll seriously consider any idea given-Thanks

National Talk Like a Pirate Day!

It's true, there is such a thing. What once was a goofy idea celebrated by a handful of friends has turned into an international phenomenon that shows no sign of letting up. People all across the Country are celebrating National Talk Like a Pirate Day-many of who have made it an excuse to party like pirates every Sept 19th, and for many, days after.

The Other Man in My Life...

Thanks to Scott, Megan and Ethan...This is the other man in my life-and Blueberry is his name.
I love my beta fish. I'm worried however, about his scarce eating habits. Blueberry (or Banana as some would call him) is a nice friend to have around-especially when I just want peace and quiet. He loves the color yellow and will follow it if put in front of him. I love when he flares out. Beta fish flare or "puff out" sometimes, and they are beautiful! Usually, however, they only do this to impress or intimidate other fish. A good way to trick the fish is to put a mirror in front of him and let him see his own reflection- I've been thinking about getting a tank and purchasing some other types of fish-I think this would be good in my loft-while my dog will have to wait until I get a home.

Glad It's Her, Not Me...

FORT WORTH, Texas(AP) - A 20-year-old woman faces an aggravated assault charge after she bit her boyfriend, broke a picture frame across his face and swung at him with a sword during an argument about him not doing the dishes, police said.

The woman was arrested Thursday afternoon at the couple's apartment, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported on its Web site.

The 21-year-old man told police that he became involved in an argument because the woman was upset that the dishes were not clean. Police Lt. Paul Henderson said the woman told the man to leave the apartment, but he refused.

Henderson said the woman then tried to physically remove the man. During the ensuing struggle, the woman bit the man's right shoulder and broke a picture frame across his face, causing visible cuts, Henderson said.

The woman then grabbed an approximately 2-foot sword and swung it at him, but missed, police said.

The woman was released from a Mansfield jail after posting a $10,000 bond, jail officials said.

Henderson said the man and woman had lived together for four months.

Ha ha ha...I just have to laugh. I know it's a serious matter. But I sympathize with this woman. For those of you who know me well, know how much I used to freak out about the house being clean. There were knock down drag outs at my house! (No real injuries, but a lot of screaming) She tries to physically remove the man- and then grabs a sword? And that's where we differ-I didn't grab for any weapons.
Anyway, I laughed when I read this today and thought I'd share. Happy Reading.

Super Pet Adoption....

The doorbell rings...I jump out of bed wondering what time it could be and head to the door. It's my boyfriend, Matt. He's ready for the day ahead, staring at me probably thinking to himself, what is she still doing in bed at almost 11am? But I was still tired and wanted to jump back in bed. Matt however, had different plans for the day. "Remember", he asked, "You wanted to go see the pets today." He was right, I did ask him earlier in the week to go the pet adoption with me. Even though I don't have an apt. big enough for a dog now, as stated in a previous blog, I am on the lookout for one. While I recently decided I wanted an American Eskie, after going to this pet adoption and seeing all the different breeds of abandoned cats and dogs I've decided it doesn't matter the type. I would have taken any dog that day, had I been able to have a place for it. It brought tears to my eyes to see how many animals were there. There were so many beautiful cats and dogs without homes and without proper care. While it was a good experience, I don't think I'll go back until I can actually take one home with me. I would also urge all of you to look at the shelters when getting a pet.

Something To Look Forward To....

So, my friends Charlee, Brandi and I have all decided we are going to participate in a witch festival this year. It'll be a witches night out at Gardner Village. October at Gardner Village is a huge deal and it's packed with excitement. Throughout the month there will be witch displays, carriage rides and dinner shows. The last weekend before Halloween, everyone dresses up in all sorts of witch costumes and participate in all the activities. Although I've never seen it, Charlee tells me there is a play that you can be a part of. There are nice witches, princess witches, evil witches, sexy witches...every type of witch imaginable at the village. So for now, I'm on the lookout for a great witch costume. I figure if I start looking now, I'll have a pretty good costume by next month. I'm extremely excited. Halloween is my absolute favorite. If any of you just happen to come across anything great-send me an email. Ya'll should check out the village as well. Wish me a happy hunting.

I've Been Thinking....

So, I've been thinking I'd like a dog. And I've decided on an American Eskimo. I knew from the start I wanted a type of sled dog. This one seems to be more of what I'm looking for than the others. They are beautiful. Of the reviews I've read they seem to be loving companion dogs and present strength and agility. Eskie's have a striking long, dense coat that needs to be regularly groomed. They do shed but can be maintained by consistent brushing. They seem to have a great temperament, are highly intelligent, trainable and independent. They do need stimulation and should be socialized as young as possible. They also make for great watchdogs-which would be great. They do, however, take longer to mature than most dogs. They act more like puppies for up to two years. I definitely foresee an Eskie in my home, in the near future.

Are You For Real?

I have a hateful reader. This was a comment left in my last post. Thought I'd share the hateful words with the rest of my readers- Obviously this person knows nothing about me. How discourteous of them to judge my life. What impolite things to say about me and my past marriage, taste of clothing, cars, and outgoing life. What harsh words.
To the reader who wrote this: I'm unimpressed by your distasteful scrutiny.

What is it about....

Rainy Days
I love rainy days. It's on those days I wish I didn't work inside all day. I wish I could at least sit by the window and listen to it-it's like music to me-odd I know, right? But it is! I love it. And I love thunderstorms. That's about the one and only thing nice about having a huge window right next to my bed-I get to see the lightning and hear the rolling thunder even better. I love curling up in a blanket and sipping on hot tea on those days. Rainy days are a magical thing.

The Family

At the request of some, I've decided to finally post a picture of my family. This is the latest photo of my wonderful family. It was taken at my little brothers wedding in June. I think Ethan is the cutest in those sunglasses. He stood in line during the ceremony and kept squinting...finally grandma got up and put her sunglasses on him-they were later switched out for his own. So, for those of you who don't know. We've got my older brother Scott, his wife Megan and their son Ethan. Next in line is my darling little sister Chloe, Mom, my little brother Garrett and his new wife-although not new to the family- Breanne. Next is my Daddy and then me. What a cute family.

Too Many Decisions....

So, I'm in dire need of new shoes. Okay, so I'm not in dire need per say...but I am really yearning for some new shoes. I've looked in the stores, and can't find what I'm looking for. So, I resorted to online shopping. I write it like it's a bad thing-to resort to online shopping-but it is actually pretty fantastic.
Here's what my list has downsized to.

I love these. I've been searching for purple-and I like the half boot look-especially with a good skirt, which I wear a lot of at work.

I have also been on the lookout for grey. And I'm not really set on what type of shoe-just know I need grey-so here's another top pick-

I think I will certainly opt for these.

Two others I think I will get-just because I wear black so often-and wear them out so quickly....

What do ya'll think of my picks?
