Police type shows

We have a DVR~we are not passive DVRers. I have not watched "live" TV in ages. There are several police drama shows (for example: NCIS, Criminal Minds, The get the picture) my husband and I watch together. I say watch, I can't watch these shows if they are something that could happen in real life. I have what my husband calls parentinitis (a play on paranoid) it seems as if most of these shows involve crimes against children and in my opinion criminals don't need any more ideas. The point to this whole rambling story is he has this new habit of making predictions as to whodunnit at the beginning and keeps interrupting my "blogging". I have no idea whodunnit or why he feels this way. I just smile and nod my head. I don't think he is on to me yet! :)
He just asked me "do you think its the guy with the bomb under his bed?" I just smiled and said "Why would he put a bomb under his own bed?"

Bless his heart he has no clue...........

March 26~Thursday (wee hours of the morning)

I am home from my fabulous 6 nights in beautiful Freeport, Grand Bahama. Hopefully I will find time to share a few pics and tell you all about it on Thursday. Bear with me a few days, my kiddos have spring break this week and have missed me. :) I don't know about you but having a 14 year old daughter who is happy to see me is difficult to pass up, so I am going to spend a couple of days with my sweet babies.

The true reason for this post---I only gained 2 pounds. And that is tonight 5 hours after stepping off of the airplane. Still holding out hope that in the AM it will be even less. Go me!

Facebook & Friends

Hello! I'm Tracy...Lynn's guest poster. Hopefully Lynn is enjoying her time on the beach - I told her to make sure she comes back with lots of pictures, because that's as close as I'm going to get to the beach anytime, I'm not bitter. :)

So, I've been thinking about what exactly I should write about. I've had a few ideas, but the one that keeps coming up over (mainly because I do this instead of my job) is FRIENDS and FACEBOOK.

How many of you are on the addiction known as Facebook? I feel like I'm 17 again and I secretly love it. It's fun to see how much everyone has changed (or even stayed the same) I have relived the BIG hair days and found people that I haven't even thought about in years, but really meant something to me at one time or another. It's just so much fun and time consuming! You know what was most fun for me? That know the one that wouldn't give me the time of day back then; well, he hasn't aged well, and my husband is WAAAY cuter. I know...that was mean, but we all have 'that boy'.

Lynn and I have been friends now for almost 20 years. She is one of those friends that I could not talk to in months and when we finally see each other again, it's like time never passed, we pick right back up. She will be my life long friend and she has no idea how much I appreciate and love her. So, you might ask what my sappy story has to do with Facebook....well, over the past few years due to families, jobs, and a little big of laziness, we haven't talked near as much as we should have...until Facebook. People, if a day goes by and I don't hear from my Lynn I go into a panic...what's wrong, are the kids sick, is she sick...why haven't I heard from her? It's actually quite silly..but I miss her!

We live in different states and our time actually together is usually rushed. Since we have been on Facebook, it has reminded me why she is such a great person and why our friendship is so effortless, we just fit. So, my moral to this blog is reach out to a your would be awfully lonely if you didn't have your very own Lynn.

Bra Fitting?!!??!!!?!!

March 18~Wednesday (still)

Let me just start this off by telling you that I am leaving at 6 am to fly to the Bahamas to spend 6 nights with my hubby. Not to complain but will it be great?? Of course-this is a trip he won for being one of the top salesmen in the country making it a group trip with 20 couples from all over the world. FYI:this is not a company that is getting a govt. bailout, it is not a publicly traded company, it is owned by a family that has done well and believes in giving back. So a trip with strangers and my husband. Whom I adore-that doesn't mean that I can stand being with him for 6 days. I am a cancer-I like my shell-I enjoy alone time more than anyone I know.

I went to Dillard's today to swimsuit shop. After putting myself through that treat bra fitting was a breeze. I have never been a modest person. Dillard's and Wacoal were having a "fit for the cure" event $2. was being donated to race for the cure just for trying one on with an additional, $2 being donated from every Wacoal bra purchase. The saleslady that rang up my swimsuit talked me into this bra fitting madness. I am happy to report that I lost a cup size!!! Some people pay for bigger cups I am happy to be losing them...God was a little to generous with me. Have you ever been fitted? If not I highly recommend it. It was painless, she never saw anything except my back when she was holding the straps so I could "bend forward and adjust the girls". I now know that I need someone to hold my straps so I can adjust the girls, maybe that was the difference. Oh. and my band size stayed the same. And in and effort to keep it real the magic number is 38 DDD that's down from a 38 G or H sometimes. I know, I am lucky girl! :)

I hate to leave you all so soon after we started. I do plan to leave you in good hands keepin' it real with my real life BFF who is also a blogger...(she bought her boobs) maybe she will tell you all about it.

Perhaps I will bring back a little surprise for my readers in my first ever giveaway! I know you all love a giveaway.

If you are looking for me, this is where I am. Keep it real--

Introduction to me...just keepin it real!

March 18~Wednesday

This is my no nonsense, need to let it all out. Cause we are all people here trying to keep it real.

I have a family blog-it is very sweet, chipper, and upbeat.

I feel that that might be a misrepresentation of my true self.

I am not usually sweet, chipper or upbeat. I find flaws in most everything, complain way to much. The older I get I realize friends are important, and blogging is such a beautiful community , that I want to play!

Here is a place where I express my true self. My thoughts and feeling and probably many opinions. I have many opinons my filter is flawed and I seem to say more than I should, however, its my life to live as I see fit.
Many might tell you not to ask me a question you do not want an answer to. I am not afraid to give you the answer and it might not be what you wanted to hear.

I want to invite you on my journey. Comment to me tell me your feelings-are you being the self that you want to be??
