Do's and Don'ts for a great summer party playlist!

It's that time of year again, when all I want to do is stay outside. Working inside an office all week gazing out the window at the gorgeous day outside makes me crazy to get out! So when I can be, I'm outside. If I'm working or having fun I always like to have some music playing. Over the weekend I took a bit of time to make a new summer playlist on my iPod which has inspired me to share my do's and don'ts. I think I listened to the summer playlist I made summer before last last summer also, with only adding a few new songs to update it a little. It was time to change it up! My son downloaded all my CD's onto an external hard drive awhile back for me so I had a ton of new stuff to choose from. I'm going to have to take that boy out to dinner! I've been jamming ever since!
These tips are for the folks who always just hit shuffle on their whole collection and may need a little guidance in making a great playlist for themselves or a special occasion or t…

Mother's Day

Mother's Day this year was back to business as usual with me, Jennifer and our moms going to LaComedia Dinner Theatre for brunch. My mom was gallivanting around Florida last year. She said her and I had been going since 1986 which was the year after my dad passed away. After so many years it's hard to keep track. We think Jennifer and Dot started joining us in the early 90's. Of course, there have been other years we have not made it for one reason or another but mostly every year you can count on us being there. Needless to say, it's become a tradition. This year we saw All Shook Up. A comedy which featured the songs of Elvis Presley. We loved it! It was a story of a guitar playing roust-about who rides into town and changes it forever with the power of love and rock and roll. I was ready for the day in my blue boots I've been trying to wear all winter. As it turned out everyone was wearing blue suede shoes in the play by the end so I fit right in and hadn't …

TV - Bates Motel

What can I say about this show other than I love, love, love it! I've always been a fan of the Psycho franchise. There's just something so creepy about it that you can't not love it! However, I was a little late to the party on this show. I don't watch much of the A&E channel I guess. I didn't hear anything about it until I started watching Under the Dome (don't get me started on this one Mr. Stephen King). Mike Vogel who plays Barbie on that show also appeared in the first few episodes of Bates Motel which made news after the fact. All I can say is I must have been under a rock somewhere. So this year when the second season started I decided to dvr it and catch the first season dvd's (slow internet so I cannot stream) from Netflix. When I went looking for the season 2 premiere to record that evening it so happened they were rerunning season 1. I missed the first 2 episodes but I couldn't wait to watch so I hit record and I have been watchi…

Before and after pics of Fadra's haircut

I love my fuzzy puppy and I almost hate to see all her hair go in the springtime. Her hair feels like a big soft cotton ball and I love petting her. She goes to the beauty shop once a month but she only gets a full cut once a year. I think she lost a couple of pounds this go round. The first year we took her to get her sheared she looked really embarrassed like she was caught without her clothes. I was laughing at her and sent a picture to my mom. Needless to say I got into trouble. Mom made it clear I was not to laugh at her :o) I couldn't help myself but nowadays if I laugh I keep it to myself. Now if I can just get to the beauty shop we'll both be ready for summer!
I may also need to go back to the eye doctor. I tried to feed a piece of a ham sandwich to her play blanket yesterday. It was laying behind me on the floor and I thought it was her. Of course I realized what I was doing as soon as I turned around but my husband saw me and got a big laugh out of it. I probably wo…
