Sex and the City

I am meeting up with the girls tonight to see the new Sex and the City movie. We will have dinner and drinks while watching the movie at the Studio Movie Grill. I will post my review of the movie tomorrow.

Shannon's Visit

My friend Shannon came for a visit last weekend and we had a great time! Having a girlfriend in town is always the perfect excuse to go shopping!

She came in around 1:00 on Sunday and then we went to go eat lunch at Veria, a natural wellness center that also has a really good deli. We then popped into Ann Taylor Loft next door. I new they would have a sale because they always do (I hardly ever shop the regular priced section), but this sale was the best I had seen there. I got a skirt for $14.99, another skirt for $9.99, a blouse for $9.99 and two t-shirts for $30.00. From there, we headed to the Parks Mall because I wanted to get some FitFlops. They are supposed to work your legs and butt while you walk. We shall see if that pays off. I am always a sucker for the latest things promoted on Oprah. We then went to Bare Escentuals for Shannon to try their makeup. She ended up buying everything and she looked really good and natural! We then went to Dicks Sporting Goods for her to buy a Garmin Running Watch. She recently picked up running. I guess its much easier living in Kansas where it’s not as hot and humid. Not my cup of tea. It was a great day followed by a great dinner at Piranha’s in Downtown Fort Worth and drinks in Arlington at Milo's with Frank and my friend Carley.
Monday (Memorial Day):
Off to Ocean Rock in Fort Worth for lunch. It's one of our favorite lunch places from when we worked at Pier 1. We first stopped to pick up her daughter who had spent the night with a friend and then went to eat. Afterwards we hit up Target and did some shopping. We also got ingredients to make the best turkey burgers I have ever had. When we got home we enjoyed some Pomegranate Daiquiris and made the burgers. They were so good. We topped the night off watching TV and hanging out.

Shannon and Payton left on Tuesday morning after I left for work. It was really nice seeing her. We always have a good time hanging out! I hope to visit her in Wichita soon.

Photos to Disney to come plus a short trip log of exactly what we did. Sorry this post is a little out of order. I just thought about it. Good night! :)

Good Stuff...

I was reading Perez Hilton because that is just what I do. He had a song posted from this chick Katy Perry called “I kissed a girl” I thought it was a remake of that other song of the same title from the 90's that sucked, so I clicked on it and was freaking good and not a remake by the way! I am not gay, duh...but it's just the song, like the style of it and her voice which makes it awesome.

I also discovered a new band (new to me) a couple weeks ago when Frank and I went to Milo's bar. There was this epic Heavy Metal sounding music, which was cheesy, yet good in a weird way. The Mars Volta is the name of the band.

One more to mention that I heard this morning on XM. It's called “American Boy” by Estelle(?)and Kanye West. There is something old yet new about it.

These might be new to you too or probably (and more likely) just new to me. But whatever, just wanted to share...check them out and tell me what you think.

The Wonderful World of Disney

Ahhhh, Disney World...for most people those two words evoke an array of happy emotions. As it sparks happy emotions for myself, it also brings mixed emotions. We spent four fun filled days at Disney this past weekend. We went to (almost) all the parks and saw all the attractions on our list. We rode all the rides we wanted. We even got to eat at all the restaurants we wanted to. We had a good time. The mixed emotion part comes in here...Frank and I do not do well with schedules and crowds of people not knowing what direction to move in. Although it was fun, it was not very relaxing.

It all started on a very early flight on 3 hours of sleep. The children sitting behind us were not well behaved. Frank had his seat kicked a lot. Even asking the parents to make the kid stop wasn't enough. The parents would not do anything about it! Awful! Not only was the younger of the two kids kicking Frank's seat, the kids were also watching Star Wars on a small DVD player, which normally would be ok. But NOT ok without headphones. Trying to sleep on Frank's shoulder I was forced to hear about the force! So needless to say the flight wasn't a pleasant one, but we made it in one peace and that's always a good thing.

I was just shocked at how many parents let their kids be rude and run amuck. Now I know I can't really complain about kids, because we did go to Disney World afterall, but what I can complain about are all of the adults who rent lark scooters because they are to lazy to walk around the park (and get some needed exercise). There were people that legitimately needed to be in them, but there were more people who just rode in them to ride in them. I know this because I would watch them get up and walk onto a ride with no trouble or get out of their chair to go get food. I know it might sound rude of me, but when you are trying to walk to a destination and you are held back by a moving barrier of strollers and larks in 95 degree weather for 4 days, it can get a little frustrating.

Anyway, aside from the people and things we have no control over, we had a really good time. It's been 8 years since we went last and it will probably be another 8 years before we go again. We definately won't go back unless we have children. Then we will be the annoying parents blocking the paths with our stroller and being too beaten down to punish our kids. Gotta love the "Circle of Life".

The Bitch (and the Blog) Is Back!

Hellllloooo! La La La!

So the blog is back. It's time to give this a whirl again so hopefully it will be interesting enough to keep you coming back for more!
