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 watching since. The second season finale was last Monday. My husband hasn't been watching because he said he would rather wait and watch it from the beginning so what better time to begin than Mother's Day weekend. I can't wait to see the first 2 episodes I missed and watch it all from the beginning. 

Bates Motel is set in current day. Norman is in high school and Norma is trying to be the best mother she can be while fretting over everything from new boyfriends, the new highway and meeting new people in town. Her main concern is Norman, though. It's always Norman! They certainly have a strange and unusual relationship but the motel has the no vacancy sign lit every evening and things couldn't be better except for the highway issue, the marijuana wars, the corrupt police, and of course, the crazy son. She also has an older son on the show. Everyone has their share of problems and they are all a little nuts actually. Bates Motel is well written and extremely entertaining. A new twist each week. Norma is also quite the snappy dresser. I love it! After all, mother is a boy's best friend :o)


Whatever is up this weekend I hope you all have a wonderful Mother's Day!

I Have Officially Retired My Ugg Boots For The Season
My Ugg boots are probably my favorite shoewear. I love them! My feet have a tendency to get cold but not while wearing these. I have read that men don't like them but I think they are cute as can be and my hubby doesn't complain. Yes, I even like them with shorts. Although I only wear them with jeans. With the sun finally coming out, sadly it's time to place them at the back of my closet.
Top: ModCloth Jeans: Levi's 515
The top I have on is the most softest thing I own and was purchased at my favorite internet clothing shop...ModCloth. It is the The-Great-Estate-Dress and is currently sold out. They have some really cool, unique items. This was listed as a dress but was a bit short for me since you can see through the bottom layer. I pulled it up a bit and it was perfect as a top with my Levis. It would be cute with leggings or a short skirt and tights too.  I'm still trying to get out of my Levis and into some more stylish outfits but I love them so. Still …

The Cabbage Patch Kids inspired crochet hat

I just love Cabbage Patch Kids! Years ago my dad went on a mission to get me one when they were hard to find. With the invent of the internet you can almost find anything these days but back in the day it wasn't so easy. He finally succeeded but there was always a story about what a time he had. He was able to get me two in the long run. The first a little boy named Bobby George (my dad's name was Bobby also) just in case he couldn't get his hands on a girl with red hair. Luckily eventually someone was able to get the girl doll for him to give to me. I was so pleased to get them and he was so happy giving them to me that it is a memory I will always treasure. Whenever I think of Cabbage Patch dolls I always think of him. I get them out once in awhile and clean them up but I hope to display them after I paint my second bedroom which I hope to make whimsical and colorful. Arlene looked like she could use a bit of sprucing up when I got her out for pictures so I'm not su…

Dreaming of the Red Hot Chili Peppers

Ok, so last night I had a dream that I was standing on the roof watching the Red Hot Chili Peppers play "The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie" and I was featured in the video. I was looking great in a cute outfit with some type of hat and having a ball! lol The next thing I know I'm running through the jungle looking worse for wear with a dinosaur chasing me.  We watched an episode of Terra Nova and then Jurassic Park III was on so I know why I was dreaming of dinosaurs but where did the Red Hot Chili Peppers come from? I was so excited I woke up and had to pee!

How cool can you get?
I love a man that cooks! Although Flea scares me a bit!
Now this is a fashion statement if I ever saw one.

Saturday was date night!

♥ Dress:  Modcloth ♥ Sweater:  Ralph Lauren ♥ Booties: Modcloth-boots
On Saturday morning snoozing late was a must after all that booze on Friday night. After finally getting up I was still tired and since my favorite show recorded the night before I wanted to watch it while I tried to wake up. I absolutely love Haven! Although it's just one more reason to stay out of Maine :o) Art got up early and went to breakfast with his brothers and washed the car so I had the house to myself. If I wanted to watch tv in the morning, why not? I mean I was going to be another year older the next day so I figured I could do whatever I wanted. Although not productive I didn't have to wonder what strange occurrences were happening in that strange little town. I did finally get up and do a bit of housework since my family were coming over the next day for cake but I only gave it a lick and a promise. Before I knew it it was time to get ready. I bought my dress from Modcloth when they had the …
