Sorry one more..... Neil Patrick Harris... Outside of Two and a Half Men, this is the best performance on TV. And talk about reinventing yourself and your career.... Outstanding!!!!!! I'd sleep with him... His character obviously, since he wouldn't have me in real life... =(

Katherine Heigl

Bitch - Thumper's mother said it best. If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all..... Especially when they are paying you more money than any mediocre actress on the planet has ever been paid in recent memory or is due..... Okay, I added that last part. But SERIOUSLY!!!!!?????????????????

First Birthday....

In the US at least. So, I'm not quite two months behind on getting this posted.... His Birthday was 5/21. Oh well.

He was soooo excited for his birthday. It was all that he talked about for about a month. First, he wanted everyone to know that he was going to be 5, and second, in case you didn't know,w hen you turn five, you automatically get a bike.

Of course the theme of the party, invites and cake, was Cars. When we went to pick up the cake the morning of his party he squealed. I mean loud, Oh Yes! He was so excited. He even wore the birthday boy ribbon that I got him. We had his party at Boondock's and he had friends from school and day care, and of course, the girls had to shove their way in to sit next to him. I have to say, it was a great place to have a kid's party (lots of lemonade for mommy, spiked by daddy of course) and they're pretty much contained in the building so you don't have to worry about them much. The problem is that they give you like 3 hours of party time. A.) that is a lot of time with other people's children for me and B.) that is a lot of time for me to be stuck in doors. I was going a little stir crazy by the time the last kid's dad came and got him. So glad we stayed longer though and went outside for go karts and mini golf with Boko.

His actual birthday was the following Thursday and that is when he got his presents from me, my mom and my grandpa (his came the day before he died). Of course the bike was a huge hit. He loves it. In fact he has decided that he is saving up his money (from losing teeth and just generally being good) to buy another bike. He currently is down to one training wheel and he only has that on because he can't quite balance himself to get on. In the last two days he has had some major falls too. But of course gets back up and on his bike.

I think that the pictures are pretty self explanatory!

Taste of The Nation - Salt Lake City

I have been posting this message on every other site that I am a member of and even though I am sure that all of my reader's have kicked me to the curb by now, I thought that I would put it up here too.

I don't now how many of you are familiar with Taste of The Nation but this is an event held every August (this is the tenth year anniversary) at Snowbird resort. The event benefits Share our Strength, an organization with sole purpose of ensuring that no child in America grows up hungry.

The event is held in cities all across the country and this year, Salt Lake's is August 2nd. This is a great day out of good food from chefs in the Salt Lake area, as well as great wines and beer. I am letting you all know for several reasons. First, tickets are on sale at All proceeds from the tickets go to the charity, so it is a write off - yay!- and one ticket is good for the whole day, meaning unlimited food and drink. So at a minimum I encourage everyone to go. Beautiful weather, great scenery, wonderful food, its a good time.

Secondly, I am looking for sponsors and donations for the silent auction. Unfortunately, as is so often the case with charities, we are cutting it close on both. All of these need to be in place by the 20th of this month, for the sake of printing. Sponsorships start as low as $250 and can be customized to fit your needs. Silent auction items can be goods or services, and are a great way to get a little advertisement for your business as well as help a good cause.

Please contact me if you are interested in participating as a sponsor or a donor. Also, please feel free to forward this on to anyone else who you think would be interested.
