You know your drive home from work is ghetto when . . .

. . . you aren't phased to see:

1. A boat selling fresh shrimp.

2. 5 cars for sale

3. People fishing in a 5" lake

4. A bright orange stalker van selling turtles

5. $10 orchids

6. DVDs $3 each!

7. Tourists peeing (hide your shame!)


House Tour - master bathroom

Aloha again!

Here is a continuation of the bathroom tour.

I painted 2 walls this crazy green color. I'm not super fond of it, but it's growing on me.

I have a little bamboo / pewter thing going on.

I cut some big pieces of bamboo and tied them with raffia to make the frame around the medicine cabinet mirror. And I bought a live bamboo plant that I haven't killed yet!

This shower curtain is from Port Orleans Riverside (a Disney resort). I love it!


This is too darn long ...

... so I'm shortening the heck out of it!

1. When’s the last time you ran? 1 week ago. My stupid left hip is killing me!

2. Do your jeans have rips, tears, and holes in them? In 7th grade they did.

6. Favorite ice cream? Butter pecan

7. When was your last doctor’s visit? LOL! When I got my physical to become a teacher. I'll let people who know me do the math on that one!

8. Do you get the full 8 hours of sleep a night? 11pm - 7:45am every night!

12. If anyone came to your house on your “lazy days” what would they find you wearing? Not a whole heck of a lot!

15. Do you own a pair of Converse? They look horrendous on me, since I have cankles.

17. Do you eat raw cookie dough? Heck yes!

24. Are you cocky? In my mind I am.

30. Could you live without a computer? I could live without pretty much anything, but that would probably be pretty boring.

34. How many phones, house phones and cell phones are in your house? 2 cell phones

37. Last time you saw your best friends? 10 months ago

50. How do most people spell your name? Howard. The captain who married me even said HOWARD.

51. Would you wear a boy/girlfriends clothes? As PJs I do.

58. Favorite name for a girl? Katie

59. Favorite name for a boy? Scott

67. Do you return your cart? Hell yes! That is one of my biggest pet peeves!

77. Do you know anyone with the same name as you? Every white trash female on TV!

103. Do you go online everyday? Yes


Jonathan and I attended a mini Ratatouie (sp?) party at the Boardwalk a couple weekends ago.

Our goal was to get some free stuff (of course!). Jonathan won a movie poster!

I think this will be the next big summer movie on our roster.

The King!

Richard Petty, aka: The King, threw out the first pitch at a Devil Rays game a couple weeks ago. Luckly Jonathan found out about it ahead of time, so we were armed and ready for autograph hunting.

Easily enough, he hosted an autograph session before the game. Richard had colorful 8X11 photos of him and his car that I got signed.

Jonathan had him sign his little Pixar car of The King.

Althogh I still think Nascar is super lame. Take that mom!
