This definitely does not garner it’s own post but I’m doing it anyways.  Because I’m bored and boring and food is always on my mind. 

I made a mistake.  I make this mistake pretty much everytime I go to buy candy for work.  I buy stuff that I like and then I inevitably eat the whole package. 

I bought a 400 Midgee (I feel a little politically incorrect calling them midgees) pack of Tootsie Rolls.  I have somehow managed to eat about 300 hundred of them on my own.  If you looked in my trash right now it would be a Tootsie Roll graveyard. A mass burial would be a better term for it.  I haven’t felt any ill effects (or is it affects I hate English sometimes) from it. 


I’m just going to throw this out there…it’s probably helping my digestion more than hurting it.  If you think about Tootsie Rolls they actually resemble–well, nevermind.   According to the package you can eat 12, YES TWELVE, for only 3 grams of fat and 130 (empty) calories! 


And if anyone has any advice on how to make Lexi (below) look LESS fake black and shiny in Photoshop Elements I would love that.  Thanks…

I have really great friends you guys.

My sweet friend Ginny was trying to set up a lunch with a few other people.  This is the email she sent out:

The pleasure of your company is required at the “Celebration of Birth” lunch honoring Mrs. Angela.

We will be congregating at Dos Gabachos at Eleven Thirty in the morning on the lovely last day of spring Saturday, June Twentieth.

Please RSVP to Ginny by the Nineteenth of June during the year of Two Thousand and Nine.

Be there or off with your head!

Ok just to recap, this Saturday at 11:30…Dos Gabachos. You all know the place. Don’t bring gifts..she isn’t THAT special. KIDDING! Bring gifts. This is just a good excuse to get together. Hope you can come!

Such a sweet and formal invitation.

These are a couple of emails that followed…

Can we all take votes on the name. Here are my suggestions

  1. Josh Hartnett
  2. Virginia Amy 
  3. Theta SGC


Wait a minute.  WHAT???  ANGELA, ARE YOU PREGNANT?!?!!?  Or are you having another dog?


NEITHER…Amy, why are you starting these rumors?  But if anyone would like to “surprise” me with a puppy then Brian couldn’t get mad right? And Crislyn I hope you would know I would let you know if I’m pregnant.   Maybe Amy’s pregnant…

HAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA…. I seriously thought you were pregnant. HAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAAAHAHAHAA. I have already told two people….. I am awesome!

Ok, let me RE-EMPHASIZE…I am not pregnant.  And my sweet, awesome friends thought I’d tell them by having someone else send out a Celebration of Birth announcement?  COME ON! They should know they would probably find out through Twitter or right here on the blog.

I guess it could be much worse and she assumed I was pregnant by just LOOKING at me.  And honestly I think it’s really funny but lesson to all–confirm that your friends are indeed pregnant before telling people.  ESPECIALLY when said friend has put on a couple of pounds and be confused for pregnant!

Thank you. 

This has been a Public Service Announcement for the slightly overweight women of America.

My Beauties…

Today, today I want to be happy and relaxed.  I do have a story to tell that involves me and a flat tire.  But that stresses me out too much to think about.  So instead I’m going to just sit back, relax and enjoy my pups. 








Some people have their kids, I have dogs.  They make my life much more interesting and much more fulfilled.

This week has sort of been my off week as far as eating well and exercising.  I may be taking advantage of it too much considering I’ve gone to bed with stomach aches for the past three nights.  Chili Cheese Burritos from Taco Bell are killer man.  Especially right before bed.  But I fight the good fight because dangit I love eating bad when I can!

That above paragraph really has nothing to do with what I’m getting ready to write but I thought I’d throw out there that I’ve been eating and sleeping really weirdly the past few nights. (Probably due to the gorge fest I’ve put myself through!)

For some reason (see the two paragraphs above) the past few nights I cannot get the song The Girl From Ipanena out of my head.  And it’s not like it’s the full out song.  It’s like a Muzak version that would be played in a poorly lit elevator.  The worst part of this whole situation is when I’m humming it I feel the need to stand up and dance.  I stand there doing a light rumba by myself, holding my hand in the air as if I’m holding a tumbler of scotch wearing my light blue leisure pants, floral shirt and stark white Velcro shoes out on my lanai with Blanche, Rose, and Dorthy.

It’s really quite an embarrassing sight.  And everytime I do this my husband walks in the room, says, “Oh. My. Gosh.” And walks out.  I hate myself for this, I really do. 

I try to get the dogs involved but they look at me about the same way my husband does.  Shock and disappointment.

Speaking of those beauties…

In this series of photos, I urge you to look past Sadie the brown dog and look towards the black beauty in the background.  I only wish you could put these pictures in motion.  Lexi is a thing of beauty when she gets to spinning.







I only wish someone could communicate to Lexi that spinning your itchy booty on the grass probably is making it WORSE, not better!

Wow, where have I been? 

I just looked at one of my friend’s blogs and saw I hadn’t posted in 4 weeks.  That’s a MONTH–did you know that?!  Since tomorrow is my birthday I thought I’d post so I could get the obligatory “Happy Birthday” wishes.  (Only half-way kidding, although I do except every person reading this to leave me a message…)

May has been a crazy month!  My husband became both an artist and a lumberjack. I became a blonde.  And Sadie had a little tumor removed by her eye.  Lexi, well Lexi probably gained a pound or two but that’s nothing new.   

We’ve had visitors, gone on vacation and just been busy all around!

Oh my goodness, I went to post pictures and I seem to have forgotten how to do it!  Wow…IMG_2691

(Just so you know, in this situation the tree stump won.)


My husband, The Renaissance Man. 


This is us in Destin, FL.  (And my lovely blonde hair) Oh my gosh people, this place is so beautiful!  Me and Lauren wanted to get pregnant here and name our children Destin and Destiny.  (Didn’t happen sorry parents!)



Ok, now there’s a few things I need to point out here.  Everyone look at my awesome tan and how well the cut of this dress highlights it.  It really shows off that I was wearing a halter-top bathing suit.  And my skin is probably just as scaly as the alligator (I’ll be here all night with jokes like that–also, I think the lady at this place said alligators actually don’t have scales so nevermind)  Somehow I managed to get a farmers BURN without even wearing a t-shirt.  How does that even happen?!  I would show you but my arms are actually the size of sides of beef so I’ll just let you imagine.  By the way, we were looking at an image of us on the wall, and we’re obviously very enthralled with it.  Don’t even get me started with how good my cleavage looks.  Pancakes anyone??

Two little ladies missed everyone too…



Sadie, wasn’t in the mood to have her picture taken.  This was basically the only shot of her even glancing at the camera. 

Hopefully for your sake I’m back for good.  I know you’ve missed all my interesting, witty stories. 

And like I said earlier, my birthday is tomorrow, so wish me Happy Birthday dangit!
