I love having bird feeders in my backyard. I get to see cardinals, blue jays, finches and squirrels. I have a beautiful family of cardinals that come every morning, followed by 2 blue jays and a squirrel I have named Chester. Yes, I named the squirrel and my bestie also named the two lizards living… Continue reading Bird Watching vs Mouse Watching
It's crazy official, I started a new job as a Project Manager for a company in downtown St. Pete. Yep, I'm officially working in a city. How do I know this? Well, for starters, I park in a garage 2 blocks from work and I'm surrounded by restaurants - oh the food. This all dawned… Continue reading Working in the “City”
Switching jobs has never been my forte. I have very little experience in it. Heck, I was a stay at home Mom for too many years to even count (14). But I am taking a leap and leaving my amazing job now for what I hope will be an even more amazing job. Six years… Continue reading My Stomach is in Knots!

A whole week of Day Drinking!!! My bestie is prbly the most wonderful person in the… Continue reading My Bestie is COMING!!!
I have decided to run away. I know it is not a new concept and I'm a little old for the idea, but yes, I'm running away. I think Ireland is where I want to run away too. I know most teens just go to a friend's house and call it a day. I have… Continue reading Running away
I have heard of the saying buying the shoes before the dress. You know you find the perfect shoes so then you have to find the perfect dress to go with those fabulous shoes. This I understand. BUT looking at wedding dresses before you are dating?? Is this weird? Normal? Fun? You may be wondering… Continue reading The Dress before the Date?
Valentine's Day or Happy Single awareness day. I hate it. Anyone else out there? I affectionately call it VD day. This is one of those Holiday's that is so over marketed. Seriously? Do we have to have a day that makes all single people want to stay home in sweats and drink too much or… Continue reading I Hate Valentine’s Day
Ok, I am at a spot in life that I answer to NO ONE! I don't live with anyone (sans the kiddos), I am not dating anyone and I am only responsible for my own decisions. Therefore I do not care about what anyone thinks of me and it will stay that way. The caring… Continue reading I am VELMA!
Slump: The moment you realize if Starbucks delivered you would never leave your house. I guess this could also be considered a Hermit's lifestyle. But I know for me it is a slump. I would prefer not to see anyone, speak to anyone, or do anything. I have kids though so this is not a… Continue reading In a Slump – this is not about Baseball
It has recently been suggested I should write a book about my life. Personally, it sounds as dull as hell to me. I am not that interesting of a person, except my best friend may disagree. But some of the characters that have come through my life could make some seriously funny subject matter. Wow,… Continue reading To write or not to write
It's that time of year again. Every January I get this weird idea that I should open a gym called Resolutions and in February switch it to a bar. I think Resolutions are great, only if you are serious, otherwise I think people just set them self up for failure. Resolutions are great intentions if… Continue reading Resolutions- we all have them
He's back. He came home via the train from New York to Florida. Yep, boy howdy, he is back. The dishes are piling up again, a weird smell is coming from his bedroom and my grocery bill went up $100 a week. BUT, I am getting "I love you's", hugs and the garbage is mysteriously… Continue reading The Prodigal Son Returns
