Okay, I saw this on my friends blog, and decided to play :)

Basically, if you want to play along, all you need to do is leave your favorite memory of you and I in the comments. And then, I will in turn leave My favorite memory of us in your blog, if you start a "memories" blog, or I can leave it here in my comments.

Simple no?

So... Yeah. What is your favorite memory of us? This could be interesting since I have not actually met some of you in person LOL.

OH! And before I forget... I am working on a new blog. I am not sure when it will be finished, but when it is I will let everyone know!

Ashley Greene is spotted... wearing a GYPSY WINGS NECKLACE! :)

Sooo... I am sitting here, checking a few blogs and I see an update on Twilight Series Theories that there are some new pictures of Ashley Greene ( The Actress playing Alice Cullen in the Twilight movie...) on Ashley Greene Online... So I click over to look... And what do I see?????

Lets take a closer look shall we???

I was all happy before when it was mentioned on the MTV Movies Blog... But right now I am beyond thrilled! I am sooo happy she likes it!

The Dance of Friendship

Last September as I was blessed to "meet" a group of women who really really have changed so much in my life. Truth be told I have never met most of these women face to face. I may never meet some of them face to face... Although I really really hope to one day. But we have created such a strong bond we rarely go a day without checking in with each other, either through phone calls or email.

This morning I received this in my email from one of these beautiful people. And I wanted to share it here.

I saw this piece tonight on So You Think You Can Dance and it brought me to tears. Not just because the dance itself was beautiful and moving emotionally on its own, but because it reminded me of all of you - your beauty, your grace, your kindness and your constant friendship and charity.

It was also very symbolic - the part where one girl fell off the stage into the other dancers' arms and then the other fell back onto them and they rocked her back up to the stage reminded me of how we are all there for each other through the trials we individually face in our own lives - how we catch one of us whose falling and then are ready to comfort another.

I was especially touched by the very end - when the last girl's hand came up to reach for something that wasn't there and the other one caught it and brought it down to rest on her head. It was like even though we are all spread out over this planet, we reach out for each other every day and find someone's hand to hold, or wise council to receive or funny craziness to laugh at, or special insight to share, even if it only is through cyberspace ;)

Love to you all, my angels:

I loved this dance... And it really does speak to the true meaning of friendship. Much love to you Britten, and to the rest of my beautiful friends, whether you are someone who like me received this email this morning, or you are one of my wonderful blogging friends, or one of the friends I am lucky enough to know outside of the cyber world.

Can Mrs. Cranston please come to the Kids Club?

Today at the gym while I was working out furiously I hear my voice being announced over the loudspeaker... At first I thought something really cool had happened because it is Customer Appreciation Day at my gym and I was hoping I won something nifty, like maybe a years worth of free personal training and healthy meals prepared by my own personal chef... But as I listened closer I heard that sadly I had not won anything, I was just being called to the Kids Club.

Turns out Kael (my youngest) had told one of the new ladies that he needed to go to the bathroom... Kael is NOT potty trained... So she let him into the bathroom and after a few minutes knocked on the door to check on him. He told her to "hold on a minute" which sounds like "hoed onna mint". So a couple minutes later she knocks again, and this time cracks the door open to check. Kael had removed his shorts and thrown them on the floor, he had also taken off his diaper and attempted to FLUSH IT DOWN THE TOILET! Effectively flooding the bathroom, and soaking his shorts which were on the floor.

When I arrived, Kael had been moved into the other bathroom (for privacy since he was at this point mostly naked) and a maintenance woman was busy at work cleaning the bathroom he had flooded so efficiently. Well, I was not prepared with an extra pair of shorts for him, but I did have a pull up in my backpack. Praise the lord. So, when we left the gym a few minutes later Kael was totally stylin' with his t-shirt and pull up ensemble. On the way out I saw a few people giggling... I was very glad that I had that pull up packed in my gym bag... toting him out there with his junk all over the place would have been just fabulous... Without a doubt he would have grabbed said junk and said something horribly embarrassing like "wook at my wiener!".

Good times...
