Remembering My Grandmother

My Grandma Rose passed away on Wednesday, December 13. She was 66. You might know her as my SuperHipGMa. She was a blogger. I love the fact that I can go back and look at what she wrote. There is more to the story but I don't feel like sharing right now. The loss is way to new. One good thing is that my grandpa is coming to visit for Christmas.

Nothing to say

I have been MIA for awhile now. I haven't had much to say. I know there are a ton of things going on in the political world but I have not been able to come up with my own profound responses so I have just been laying low.

Alot has happened since I blogged last. I went on vacation to Boston, My cousin got engaged, and my only uncle passed away. My uncle was very pivotal in my life. He rescued me from a bad situation when I was little and I will be forever grateful to him. I loved him dearly. I don't really have anywords to describe how I feel about his passing. His body was full of cancer, and he was in a lot of pain. I will someday be able to reflect more clearly about how he changed my life. For now, all I can think about is my cousin- his daughter. I don't know how to ease her pain or know the words to let her know it will eventually be ok. I love her so much and it hurts me to know she is in pain.

This is NOT a surprise

You Are Not a Cook

You know cooking isn't for you, and you wouldn't even consider trying to make a homecooked meal.

And this is a very good thing. You've saved all your friends and family from unintentional food poisoning!

Why would anyone ever blog about a scent? Read on!

I went shopping at Marshall Fields at the Somerset Collection on Tuesday with my brother. We had a lot of fun. I really LOVE having a brother that likes to shop and also has good taste. We did some serious damage as far as purchasing is concerned. Everything Nautica was on sale. I was excited/SURPRISED by the NAUTICA sale because the only reason we even ended up at the mall was because I was taking Jason home after a successful Memorial Day weekend on the boat and I needed to go to the Clinique counter to pick up some MOISTURE SURGE for my hubby. It works wonders on sunburned skin and it is the best peel preventative we know of. To walk in the mall and be bombarded with 40% off sale signs was AWESOME.

Anyway – I got Matt 5 Nautica Golf Shirts, a Nike Golf sweater vest, a pair of shorts and a Tommy Bahama T-Shirt that I loved but I wasn't so confident that Matt was going to. Jason bought the same shirts I did for Matt, a pair of dress pants and a sweet dress shirt. We were very successful to say the least. Then the absolute best find of the day appeared before my eyes as if God aligned the stars in HEAVEN and created this day specifically for me to shop:

I decided I wanted to go to the fragrance section. Everyone knows that I am always searching for "THE ONE" –we walked over to the ladies section and I noticed the new Tommy Girl bottle, a cool pink color. I wasn't to optimistic considering I have NEVER been a TOMMY fragrance person (men or women's). Anyway, I picked up the bottle and fell in love. I made my bro smell it and he loved it. I knew if he loved it on me then it was a hit since he is usually really picky . I bought it, and not only did I buy the women's, I ran over to the men's version and fell in love with it too. Matt and I could be the best smelling married couple around now. I love this stuff. I am getting a lot of compliments on it. I decided I will share the wealth with this one. If you are looking for a light scent that lasts ALL DAY and is uplifting – GET THIS AS SOON AS YOU CAN. The only thing is, you have to get the 2006 EDITION. There are different versions available from past years, but the one I LOVE is the NEW one - REMEMBER TOMMY GIRL (or BOY) SUMMER 2006 EDITION Fragrance. That is the name of it: Summer 2006. I will be living in this stuff until September!

Happy Shopping to ALL!
