Christmas here was pretty nice. I got a bunch of new Packer shirts form my Mom! Yay!!! BF got me a nice fleece shirt, perfume and socks. I, unlike Estee, love socks. *giggle*
Then with a bunch of my Christmas money in my grubby little hands... I went to Target yesterday and finally bought a Dyson. Holey Crap!!! Does this thing suck! Anyone need anything vacuumed?

And if you want to be on the list for next year, shoot me an email.
I hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday season! *smooch*
One holiday that not a lot of us celebrate, I've been learning a bit about. The Solstice. Here's what one woman an my crafty board had to say about how she celebrates Solstice...
Yule is the beginning of the next turn of the wheel for me and so my ritual incorporates this feeling of beginning anew. I spend time meditating beforehand on what new things I want to bring into my life through education or experience and envision ways to do this.To honor the fact that the night of the solstice is the longest night of the year, I enjoy sitting in my house with all aritificial light sources extinguished while I do my meditation. When I am ready to proceed to the next step of actually writing down what my "resolutions" are, I turn on a soft light. This year I plan on using my tree.Then I make an amulet that contains my written down plans along with other special pieces that make it personal to me.
In case you're not sure "who" celebrates Yule and the Solstice, it's mainly Wiccans or Pagans. It's very interesting to read of all the symbols and rituals that began as Pagan and then were adopted by the church as their own.
So whatever YOU celebrate! Happy Holidays to you all. *smooch*

*smooch* Thanks so much to my little blonde cookie maker.
I hope everyone is receiving their cookies now too, it seems that you are. I was swamped at work yesterday... but the couple of blogs I read, seemed to be receiving cookies. Yay cookies!!!

I had to run to Walmart to return some items and pick up a Wii game for DD. Long line at the return counter, that's too be expected. No big deal.
I go back to the video game counter and wait.... and wait... a gentlemen with a video in his hand comes up to counter he also waits... and we're both scanning the aisles for the people that are supposed to be at the counter. Ahah! One comes around the corner and the gentleman (in a fun happy voice) says "Hi! You got some customers over here" Seriously, he said it with a smile and was very pleasant. The worker says to him and me "I'm not the only one working around here."
I'll let that sink in for a moment.
She said to us, customers waiting at the register... "I'm not the only one working around here."
I swear my jaw hit the ground. The gentleman was speechless. I finally recovered and said to her "Well you're the only one we've seen around here. Could you help us?"

I'll also grab a bag of Dove chocolates to fill it. Only the best for Christmas. *grin* I also need to grab a bag of doggie treats so I can fill Morgan's. I splurged and bought Morgan one last year at Pet Smart, I saved it though so I could just keep reusing it.
Ack forgot to ask! Do you have/use advent calendars? I grew up with them and DD has had one every year since she was 1.
Monday, November 12, 2007
DF, I double checked last year and we were told to make a couple dozen. That sounds about right.
And as always happy baking and..... GO PACK GO!!!
Oh deadline is Christmas, please try to get the cookies out for the holiday season. Thanks!
p.s. Arkie, please email me so I can email you back your victims. Thanks!

I guess I'm here to say that if Coco is too busy, I can host this year. *grin* Since that's why I started this blog, to ooooh and ahhhhh over the cookies I received.
So could someone? (Bob, Nookie?) Find Coco for us. *smooch*

If you do watch, you'll understand the title of this post and these following phrases (which I kept saying in the car ride to Canada and drove Carey nuts) (yeah I know not a far trip). *grin*
--- blue Prius
---I keeeeel you
---Are you my virgins?
*snort* I can't wait to watch it again tonight!
Wednesday, October 17, 2007
So any ideas? What should I throw into a birthday bag?
Poop the pic is blurry. *sigh*
Wednesday, October 10, 2007
The actual drive to the border was nothing, two hours. We were in Canda (yes I know) before we knew it! Bravie was able to see why I didn't think we needed to bring a portable potty for her, there were trees everywhere. No deserts to be seen. *snort*
Here's some pics of the cottage. I just loved the area, reminded me lots of our cabin on the lake in the UP.
I think Bravie is pointing out a polar bear or something. *rolls eyes* She's not real good naming animals.
Bravie and Lightsy did make me a lemon meringue pie for my birthday and it was wonderful. *smooch*
What did we eat.... oh duh! Saturday night we did a raclette (sp?) for dinner. Was tons of fun! While Bravie and Lightsy made the pie, I cut up chicken, veggies and some yummy cheese for us to use on the raclette. (Bravie and Lightsy cut up some stuff too. *grin*) The raqlette was basically a fondue styled grill. The grill sat in the middle of the table and you just threw whatever you wanted to eat on. It also had these little trays on the bottom that you could make cheesy garlic bread, or melt cheese and stuff on your cut up baked potato. It was lots of fun!
After dinner a couple friends of Lightsy's and Dusterboy's came out and visited with us. They were very very nice. I sure hope we didn't embarrass Lightsy. *grin* We tried to be on our best behaviour while the company was there.
The drive home on Sunday was full of football. Yes football. I have Sirius. We listened to both of our games.
Monday I had to take Bravie back to the airport. *pout* Before I did though, I showed her Lake Michigan and around my little town. *grin* I tried to tell her before I was a hick.
If asked to, I would drive up there again in a heartbeat. Lightsy was too wonderful not too go back to. I love her. *sobs*
Oh and Lightsy? did I mention that BF has a good friend of his in Barrie? They go hunting together all the time.

With the help of some liquid courage, I did Karoake Friday night. *grin* I sang "All My Friends Say" by Luke Bryan. *big grin* I was shaking soooooo bad. But I did it. My BF was so happy and proud. He's been trying for months now to get me to get up and sing. He sings just about every weekend when we go out. But I've been chicken. *bawk bawk*
Then Saturday night? Without the help of any shots, I got up again and sang "Before He Cheats" by Carrie Underwood. *snort* I didn't shake quite as bad that time.
Thursday, September 13, 2007
2. This weekend is my real last chance to do any heavy cleaning before Carey is here. Ack!
3. It's hard to clean when the house still isn't all put away, ya know? I want to move the computer into the extra bedroom... but it's been a dumping ground and needs to be cleaned out first. *sigh* I also want to get the futon set up in there. *sigh*
4. Washer still isn't hooked up. We blew out the water lines Saturday and a ton of crud came out, but I guess not it all. We still have very low cold line water pressure. *sigh* I hope he runs the new lines this weekend. But I'm not going to hold my breathe.
5. DD and I will be in Chicago next weekend celebrating her birthday (which is the 26th). (Hence why THIS weekend is my final chance to power clean.)
6. I think I may buy a new suitcase before next weekend. I need one.... I just might.
7. I also may go shopping at Penny's this weekend (if I finish my chores at home) and bring Pooh's list with me. *grin*
8. I have to pee.
9. I love the number 9, it's my favorite number.
Monday, September 10, 2007
I went to my Stampin' Up dealer's house Friday night and we made 4 scratch-n-sniff items. *giggle* I have a wedding card with a cake on it that smells like vanilla, a pumpkin box that smells like pumpkin, a beautiful card with grapes on it that yep smells like grape and a happy sunshine card that smells like orange. *grin* They were lots of fun to make. I think my Dealer drank a little too much wine though, she kept smelling her grape card and licking the grape koolaid off her fingers. *snort*
I'm really not sure what to do with all my hobby stuff. This new house is so small. *pout*

It was a very sad, very real thing. Our troops are still dying in Iraq. Please do what you can to let our government know... we've had enough loss. Start bringing our troops home.
If you want to read about the Sgt. Scheibner, then click on the above link. There's also more stories about his death, but I will warn you... if you cry easily don't read the article from yesterday where they interview his Mom and how she was marking off the days until he was safe.

Went shopping for shoes with DD last night. She now wears a size 8 in women's shoes. *sigh* Why can't she stop growing? Oh and also. *whispers in case any boys come around* She only has one bra that fits around her but she can't wear it cause her boob keeps popping out. *sigh* Are you sure no one out there wants a preteen girl? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
The good news.
I wear a size 8 shoe, so I can wear all 4 of the new shoes she picked out last night. *grin*
Monday, August 27, 2007
We're almost done with back to school shopping, I think all DD needs are shoes. How is everyone else doing with the shopping?

Hmmmmmm let's see.....
Ok. How about this. I'm going up north to retrieve DD from her grandmother this weekend. What yummy foods should I buy and bring home with me?
Pasty? mmmmmm I bought some two weeks ago when I brought DD up there
Trenary Toast? really not my thing since I don't drink coffee, but everyone else likes it.
Smoked Fish? mmmmmmmmmmmm
If you live away from where you grew up, are there foods that you miss? Do you buy some when you go visit?

2. Is it just me? Or wouldn't you rather see Sanjana with people instead of by himself in pics?
3. It was in the 90's with 99% humidity yesterday, today 69 and no humidity.
4. I just got a tune up on my car.
5. Above is probably good, since I'm going up north this weekend.
6. *smooch* for MTW since he's been whining about needing them.
7. DD is getting too big, just too big. Remind me to post the pic of her in her bridesmaid dress.
8. I can run for 28 minutes straight, next week I go for 30.
9. I like 9. 9 is one of my favorite numbers.

It started raining and the wind was blowing 45-50 miles an hour! But... then it stopped and then sun came out.
Rodney Atkins was great, dang he does have a very nice voice. He brought out his little boy for the end of "Watchin' You". awwwww that was sweet.
Phil Vassar was his usual energetic self. He didn't do any flips this concert, but he did run all over the stage when he wasn't playing the piano. I knew every.single.song he sang. I love concerts like that.
Saturday night I'll be seeing INXS! Woohooooooo!!!! And the best part? Kimmer will be with me!!! Wooohoooooooo!!!!
Monday, July 02, 2007
1 old short couch

girl clothes size 10-12
set of 8 apple dishes
hmmmmmmm I know there's more... I just can't think what it is right now.

Is it 5 o'clock yet? *looks at watch*

Also didn't like the dunes. I like my ocean side walkways to actually have a view of the ocean and not dunes.
I did alot of lying out in the sun and reading. We did go to a club one night and that was fun to see, but very expensive.
On the plane down there, the woman sitting in front of me was kicked off the plane. *gasp* She had asked the stewardess if they upgraded travel agents to first class, she said no they didn't have that policy anymore. The woman asked the stewardess's name (although I don't know why she didn't just read her name tag) and wrote it down. When (I think it was the head stewardess) asked if there was a problem, she said no and asked her for her name too. They both were a little nasty towards each other and then Captain came on and said we had a maintenance problem. *snort* Ends up she was the maintenance problem and security escorted her off the plane because the stewardesses were intimatated by her. What a way to start a vacation, eh?
Tuesday, June 05, 2007
I just want to go and lie on the beach all day. *pout* I just want to relax, totally relax for a few days.
*pout* I do have hootche shirts, but nothing to wear with them. If I happen to find a 1/2 hour to go shopping, what should I look for?
Wednesday, May 30, 2007
1. I have to pee.
2. I have aleast a dozen mosquito bites on my legs.
3. My chai latte is almost gone.
4. It's going to be close to 90 here today. woooohoooooo
5. Everyone thinks this necklace I'm wearing is from Tiffanys, I get asked that alteast once every time I wear it.
6. I still have to pee.
7. I wonder what style Levis Momma is going to tell me to buy. *grin*
8. I love Maroon 5's new CD, but I am currently listening to Jason Aldean's new one.
hmmmmm I'm not sure who has or hasn't been tagged. Sooooo I tag Augie, Lightsy and Monsty.
Thursday, May 24, 2007
Anyone want to come to my house and help me? *grin* We can have a garage sale and I'll let you have the proceeds. *grin*
Monday, May 21, 2007
Just a quick note, to let you know I am doing fine. It is very hot over here. All I do is just work and sleep. But all is fine. I will let you know more when I have more free time.
That message was waiting in my email box this morning from my brother. He'll be over ther for atleast 4 months.
Let's hope everyone's brothers/uncles/nephews/sons/sisters/aunts/nieces/daughters come home safely.

2 : marked by respect for and consideration of others
Charming people focus on the other person. Rarely are they themselves the topic of discussion. Be nice to others. If someone is excited or wants to discuss a subject that you have no interest in or have a negative interest in; say nothing. (Granted this would be in relation to entertainment issues, not debating/argument issues.)
In most cases, arguments are meant to be persuasive. Take a moment to think about that. How persuasive is an argument that automatically makes the other person wrong? Are they going to be receptive to your point of view? What are you really trying to accomplish by directly challenging another person?
Avoid talking down to people. If you're never wrong, you're always wrong. You have to give ground occasionally or risk losing the respect of people you're arguing with.
I think someone needs to look up being courteous again. They're a little confused.
Monday, April 16, 2007
Everyone is getting along well. Morgan likes her new chew toy. *giggle*
Only other news in Breezyworld is that I have a horrible head cold and tax season will be over Wednesday. Do you have your taxes in? Tomorrow is the deadline!
Friday, April 06, 2007
I love the tortoise one's face, and I love the little patches of orange on the light grey one. I'll probably let DD decide which one.
Which one do you want?
Monday, April 02, 2007
Maybe it's not so much that as it is; keep your condescending, self promoting, self righteous spew to yourself. Just because you think that the sky is really a light blue, does NOT mean the peeps that think the sky is a bright blue are wrong. Being strong willed and standing by your convictions, does not mean being nasty/snarky/speak down to those that have different thoughts then your own. Especially when it has to do with freaking entertainment things.... yeesh can we get any more higher on that horse? It's all about the delivery of your opinions... your delivery sucks. IMHO
This post is sponsered by Orville Redenbacher, have some today.

Help me!!!!! Apparently I'm a freak cause I don't do lists. *grins at Boo* (OMH the real freak is Bravie, her list making for vacations is mind boggling.) So anyway... where was I? SEE! That's my problem!! I keep getting side tracked and I forget things. *sigh* Like tonight for example... I was looking at wall chargers for DD's iPod and had one in my cart... set it back to go look at other ones and got distracted by the disaposable cameras... then I saw the candy aisle... need snacks for the plane.... oooohhhh travel lotion... I need that.... where's the baked cheetos in this place. *sigh* I get home. No iPod charger. *sigh*
Breezy's vacation travel lists
-socks (I'll be wearing sandals in Hawaii, right?)

Have you ever been sitting at your desk and started laughing so hard that you were afraid you were going to get fired for being drunk at work and you weren't even drinking this time?
Today's life lesson.....
Laughing until your gut hurts is good exercise and good for you.

I don't know if you found someone yet to help with your fashion show, but I would think that a Cabi rep would help if you can find one in your area.

New guy likes movies. Tuesday's have become our movie night. He normally brings over a couple and we watch atleast one. Last night we watched The Departed. OMH! I guess it's nominated for a bunch of awards. It should win. What a great movie. Loved it. One question though, for those have seen it. What happened to the envelope that Billy gave the chickipoo? Did she open it? Did it have instructions to call Walburg's character? *hops around* I need closure on this item!!!
If you haven't seen it, rent it. Nicholson is one crazy dude.
Any suggestions for what we should see?

This morning? As I was driving back to the house after dropping DD off at the busstop? What do I see? Foot tracks in the snow from my neighbor's house out to my garabage can that was at the side of the road for pick up this morning.
I laughed it off, but then someone said those two evil words to me and now I'm a little nervous. Identy theft. *shiver*
Friday, January 05, 2007
I'm just here real quick to say that it's that time of year again. You may see flashes of me *flash* but that is all. Work is insane for me in January, then we get into the business tax portion of tax season and then the personal.... and well you get the picture. busy busy busy
So if I miss something, let me know! I hate missing all the fun stuff.
Oh and? I bought my tickets to Hawaii to see my Mom. *hop* Be jealous. NOW. *grin*

I made DD watch Grease the other night and now she's hooked. She watched Grease and Grease 2 over and over and over again all weekend. LOL She can now break into song or character almost as well as I (or her Aunt) can. *grin*
We're looking forward to the new reality show where they're auditioning for a Sandy and Danny for the broadway production of Grease.
Happy New Year everyone! *strikes grease lightening pose*
