I've climbed out from under this rock....

just so I can say "HI!!!" to all my fellow bloggers.

Geeze, I can't tell you why I haven't been's not for lack of material because I still have ideas floating around from before Christmas. I guess it kept getting harder and harder to do the first post since I went into hiding. :)

~It's snowing here. It was sixty degrees yesterday. Does that seem weird to anyone else?

~There's one question I have been asked about 1,496 times that even though it's been asked of me my whole life it's also one of my favorites. And no, it's not "Is that your natural hair color?" even though I've been asked that quite a few times as well. I am constantly asked "Are your eyelashes real?!" And the answer is yes, yes they are. The story I usually tell with that answer is that in first grade my best friend (a boy) and I cut our eyelashes with safety scissors. He didn't like his because they would scrape against his glasses and me, I'm a follower what can I say! Even though I didn't have glasses I chopped mine off too. And look at me now! They grew back with vengeance! They could be my best feature, besides my budding personality (ha ha ha).

~Mr. Ski will be officially DONE with the Army in less than six days. SIX DAYS. That is so hard to believe. I made the mistake of putting this information on my Facebook page when he began terminal leave back in November. I think I made a comment saying....can't wait to start this new chapter. My oldest sister calls me that day and asked "Is Mr. Ski writing a book?!" and she was serious. :) I love her.

~I have lost 12 pounds in the past 3 weeks. I know it's not a lot but it's a start. I have a dress fitting for Kiki's wedding next Saturday and I had to get something rolling so I could fit in the dress. I've been pleased with the results so far even though the pounds haven't been quick to fall off, I do have to remind myself it's a marathon not a sprint.

~I saw a sign at the dry cleaners near my work. They had cut strips of duct tape to fashion these words on a sign out front: "We honor competitor coupon" It's not funny unless you say it outloud. So here I encourage you find that little angry asian woman inside of you and say it outloud. See?! Hilarious. Brings a smile to my face every. single. time. I love Asians. Especially the little old Asian women who sound angry even though they are only asking how many sets of chopsticks you want.

Hopefully it won't take me 34 days to post something else! Thanks to all those who emailed and commented regarding my absence. Love y'all! (y'all is something we say in the South it's a combination of you and all.) haha, :)!
