|Me in a nutshell||
I don't think that there is a nutshell big enough to fit in all that encompasses me!!! I'm goofy, loving, bitchy, moody, funny…mother to a beautiful son…and partner to the same (unfortunate) guy for over 18 years. I'm an RN and a hard worker. Well, I guess I can fit it all in this nutshell. I'm sure there's more. I just can't come up with it in my usual sleep-deprived state!!!
I heart my son with every fiber of my being. I also heart my "hubby" and my Golden Retrievers!!
Tell Us More
|eat, drink, be merry: Tell us your go to meal||
Personally, I think Rachael Ray and Sandra Lee are friggin' geniuses for pulling off 20/30 minute meals. I've tried their recipes and found that if I had a kitchen prep staff that cut up everything during the commercial breaks AND a gas stove, I could probably pull off a 20-30 minute meal too!!!!
I do like Rachael Ray's Vodka Penne Pasta meal. I add chicken strips (Perdue pre-mades) to it and voila…she is done!!!
|beauty & fashion: I can skip these||
Any fashion trend that comes down the pike. I'll take classics ANY day. I had shoulder pads, capris and tunics from the 80s. I look back at those pics and wonder what in the HELL I was thinking!!!
|I NEVER go without these||
Concealer. I have the darkest, brownest under-eye circles known to man. Seriously. I need concealor to bring it down to my normal pasty-white shade.
|Biggest splurge or steal in my closet||
$90 snow boots from Cabela's. I was tired of the worlds ugliest pair of snow boots that I had previously – a pair that I had to buy on lunch break when I worked at Boscov's Dept Store in their accounting department. So…now I am the proud owner of the second ugliest pair of snow boots in the world.
|do-gooder: Why I am one||
I recycle because I want the world to be a better place for my son.
I donate to the zoo because I want animals to be there when my son has children.
I spread awareness on pancreatic cancer because I don't want anyone else to lose their father like I did.
|read, watch, listen:Favorite books||
I haven't read a good book in years and years and years. I guess, In Her Shoes was the last one I really read. Now it's Froggy Has A Sleepover, Disney Books, and Transformers.
|Favorite TV shows||
Usually reality TV. I'm currently hooked on the whole Rock of Love series and Confessions of a Teen Idol. Chris Atkins is still hot, wrinkles and all!!!
Too many to list. I'm a real movie-phile. I like classics – black and whites mostly – with Humphrey Bogart or Audrey Hepburn. OH – The Little Princess with Shirley Temple. Many, many more.
|home & living:My favorite room in my house||
The basement. It's got a cottagey feel with the plaid furniture and the pine wainscotting.
|potluck:Five people (dead or alive) I’d invite to a party||
1) My Daddy, because I miss him
