Happy 2012 !!!

 2011...... Bye Bye

I am always happy to see a year end and the fresh new one begin. Like everyone else there were the trials and tribulations, the bits of drama, the sadness of loosing someone very special and the basic struggles. One thing NEVER lacking was the unconditional love of TRUE friends and family. How very lucky I am!

 Going in to this new year I have a verve and desire to kick some ass. No, not anyone in particular. The ass of life! I have plans to keep evolving and growing, I have new ventures on the horizon and I am going to take some chances. I know there is nothing I can't accomplish now because I have been tested for so long! I've got this one bitches!

 There have been an unsavory amount of people that have come in and out of my life (whether I welcomed them or not. Some were force-fed) and I thank them all for their demonizing lessons. You idiots have taught me so much about myself and my own life and who I am and who I want to be (none of which are YOU). I feel the need to drop a few anonymous names.... Mr. Lamborghini...Mr. Black...Lorena Bobbitt...The Publisher....The Navy Seal....The Car Sales Man...The Douche Boat Builder...To you in particular I say FUCK YOU, I WIN!
 I'm so happy to continue life being my down-to-Earth Diva self. I am beyond happy with the choices I made in my life. Choosing not to have children, eliminating toxic people, taking risks, loving on my terms, fighting the fight for sight and always, always staying true to who I am. I am in love with the people I "work" with. They are beyond family to me. Imagine a family that you get to hand pick! They are the heart and soul of my everyday. Thank you!

 What else could a chick want for her self? Nothing is missing, everything is the way it should be and being in my forties is getting better with each passing year. I'm pretty much game for anything this year. Suggest it, I just may take you up on it. I wish for all of the people I love to have the best year ever this year and to know that I love each and everyone of you so much. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being so amazing and in my life! I absolutely love you.
And to the "Douche Boat Builder"... Fuck You!

She's Back.

Hey Peeps.

Ok... I'm back to blogging. It's been a long time.

You don't have to pay attention to me but I'm hard to ignore....soooooo..... if you want to subscribe to my nonsensical opinions, suggestions, rants and 'news', I welcome all.

Please 'FOLLOW' my blog to be involved in the festivities.

I feel blogs coming about food, fashion, dual purpose use for things around the house and reviews on things from movies to ice cream to charities to deals. Photos are always a big part of blogging too so if you're like me and enjoy picture books more than novels then you have found a haven.

See you back on here real soon....

And as always. Comments and interaction are welcomed!! Just keep it semi-clean.

Cleansing & Purging (not what you think)

So if the only thing I can change is 'me' , I would say that is great news!!! You just will never change anyone else. It's so much easier knowing that I hold the power of my life. 
Last October 3rd I turned 40 and I don't know if having my birthday the night of a full moon had something to with it but some cosmic craziness ensued and my life was turned upside down. 
I won't bore you with the details of my own personal journey this year but do know that I am so lucky because I have the tools to cope. It's up to me. How do I react? How do I perceive the situation? What are the facts? So with a few months left until the close of my 40th year I am making an effort to bring closure to the last 10 months and prepare for the next part of my life. That's where "Cleansing and Purging" come in. 
Let Go !!!! Just let it all go... it's like a big giant exhale and a way for me to relax my shoulders that stick to my ears. I decided to go through my house and purge. I have been tearing through closets, cabinets, basements, attics, drawers and on and on. I am taking anything that I just don't need and making a big pile or giving it away to friends and in a week or so I have someone coming to pick it all up and take it away for someone who does need it. I go through everything once.... then I go through again ... and once more. I can not explain how good it feels to clear it out! So while I continue to do that I decided I need to do the same for my body so I looked around and found a cleanse to help clear what ever I have been holding on to out of me too. (not in a poopy way).  So I found a company called Blue Print Cleanse and I decided to try the 1 a week for 4 weeks. LOVE! Wow. I figure I can do anything for one day a week and so it began. 
All I really want to say is that sometimes we need to be reminded that WE are the ones that control our here and now and making a decission to take control and act on it feels so good!!! 
What do you need to purge? What do you need to cleanse? If you get it out you make room for new and wonderful things.

Just A Ramble

Hi friends.
Just sitting at the computer for a minute.
So here are some of my random ramblings......
I have hit an all time new record high in my weight! Duhhhhh... you have seen my food obsession confessions. I think my new obsession has to be healthier food. Better choices. Living cleaner. Knowing I'm going to Trader Joes today is going to make that tough because their chocolate covered caramels are AWESOME!!! (said in a sing-songy voice). (Side note... Monmouth County peeps.. they are opening a Trader Joes in Shrewsbury next to Staples in the fall!!!!!!!!) Anyhoo.... Wish me luck on getting back to basics and eating how I really love to.... Clean, simple and healthy. Should I announce my weight on here? Naaaahhhh... maybe I'll just let you know how I'm doing each week. I have a goal and i"ll let you know how close I'm getting.
So my other rants are...
BP Oil Spill...... Mel Gibson....NJ Housewives... (enough said)
There is a new (to me) web site that is fun... it's called  very fun for shopping. Check it out.
Oh and try this if you're looking for a twist on your Hummus..... Chop up a fennel bulb in big rough chunks and dive in to some lemon hummus.... AMAZING (another sing songy voice) Now that's a healthy snack I can get down with. Something about the licorice and the lemmon... very balanced... and coming from a true libra that means a lot.
Fennel Bulb pictured below.

If any of you have a fun super healthy snack please share them with me. I am serious. If you only knew how good of an eater I am at my core you would be shocked at my diversion.

Ok... I'll be back... thanks for letting me ramble.  xxxo

Just A Quick Hello

OK. I have been since 4:45. Ugh. I kept myself busy by cleaning my basement, doing laundry, eating some cheerios and now surfing on my Dell. I WISH Target or something fun like that was open 24 hours a day. I would so be there right now buying the little hand clippers I need to trim the butterfly bush and cut some hydrangeas for the house.
Only 10 minutes left until the automatic timer on my coffee pot turns on too! That is exciting. By the way, Peetes Coffee is so firkin awesome. My friend who is quite the epicurean got me hooked on it a couple of years ago and now it's all I can have! I have such a snooty pallet.
Well my friends, be safe this 4th of July weekend. Remember who's birthday it is!!! U.S.A. I'm adding a link to the lyrics of the Star Spangled Banner too. When I hear that song and listen to the words and meaning I get goose bumps every time!!!!!!
