It's spring and that means re-decorating...

Well, maybe just a little paint, new drapes and covering my old sofa...I really like the color scheme in this room from WestElm...

Model Found....

OMG! I hit the neighborhood bar/club on Saturday night with my people and partied like it was 1999! It looked a little like this...So much fun...can't wait to do it again...Happy Birthday A.

An Historical Teaching Moment...



Last week President Obama signed into law a new Health Care Bill...one of it's tenants makes it illegal for health insurers to deny coverage to children with pre-existing conditions... Now Mini won't have to worry about getting insurance or keeping her insurance into adulthood...YEAH! I love it when a plan comes together...

Let me park this right here for future reference



Honey Mint Limeade Recipe

2 cups lime juice (about 15 limes)
1 1/2 cup granulated sugar

2 cups chopped and packed fresh mint leaves

1/4 cup honey

1 lime, cut lengthwise for garnish


Bring sugar and one cup water to a boil. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Add sugar syrup and mint to a blender; puree. Pour through a very sieve and discard solids. In a pitcher (at least 2-qts), stir lime juice and 1/4 cup honey until blended. Add 6 cups of water, stir, and chill. Add sliced limes before serving.

Finally seeing some of that Federal Stimulus Money...


So, it looks like Mini's school purchased new netbooks for all their 7th and 8th graders with federal stimulus money from President Obama...Wowho...

Video Tuesday...Who Does She Think She Is?

WHO DOES SHE THINK SHE IS? Wow...If only I had a dollar for every time I've heard that...All my life I've been seen and thought of as "weird" or "different"....when most kids were running around outside, riding their bikes, playing ball...I was in the house...drawing, sewing or making something...my mom and dad would force me to go out and play...As an adult my home doesn't look like everyone else's home, my clothes, my hair are not always the norm...the things I like to do and see are not always the usual...and it's hard going through life when you feel like no one really sees or appreciates you for who you really are...When I worked in Corporate America I dreamed about living a life where I could wear what I wanted...Do my hair the way I wanted...Oh, to paint and sew all day and not have society dictate how I must look...Then I became a mom with the freedom to dictate how I look and live or so I thought...But being a mom has only dictated another look...another lifestyle that I must live as not to embarrass my daughter or go against the norm...I say all of this to express how excited I was to find this movie...and to see that I'm not alone...Enjoy.

Please excuse my absence from class...

What a week...meetings with doctor's speaking of bone marrow transplants...sigh. Mini performing in a talent show at NYU... worked the school book fair...attended a parent teachers meeting...shopped and pulled items for my clients office...who will be done filming and expected to move in any day now...the sofa I ordered is hard as a rock...UGH! Missed a fun party....Oh yeah, and my car broke down...Yep...just an average week in my life...but, I made it and I'm back...

Toccara makes it look so damn easy...
