Butterfly In The Sky ...

If you are looking for a good book to read ...

pick this one up.
I pretty much ignored my family and read it in 2 days.
It will not disappoint you.

Dear Little Man Who Stood Behind Me in Line At Cafe Rio Last Night,

I would like to take this opportunity to
teach you about a little thing I like to call
"Personal Space".
When standing in a line
you need to keep at least a few paces behind the person in front of you.
I didn't enjoy feeling you breathing on my neck.
I didn't like it when you coughed in my hair.
But you spitting on my hand when you were ordering pushed me over the edge.

Give a little space to those around you.


Annoyed and Irritated

Dear Jet Blue,

Why did you do this to me?
You quit flying into San Diego?
Now I have to go back to Southwest!
I will miss your plush leather seats,
your yummy snacks,
your individual televisions and cable,
(when I am going to catch up on The Real Housewives of Atlanta?)
and your witty and entertaining flight attendants.

I am going to go drown my sorrows in
Adam Shankman and the SYTYCD finale,
a BLT like my dad makes,
and a lot of Christmas present wrapping.

I will be awaiting your return.


Desperately Missing You

It Never Feels Like Christmas To Me ...

until I attend the Mormon Tabernacle Choir Christmas concert.
It is one of my favorite things about this season!

It is always decorated SO beautifully,
and I always want to play "How many poinsettias can you see?"
because seriously there have to be a few thousand.

This year the guest artist was Natalie Cole.
A little sentimental for me since she was the first concert I ever went to,
but I have to say the years have caught up to her.
She didn't sound as good as she once did,
and her face looks like she has had a little too much nipped and tucked.
But she did rock her bejeweled/Swarovski crystal microphone!

My other fav part of the concert is always seeing
the Lights at Temple Square afterwards.
I love bundling up and walking around seeing all of the glorious lights,
the luminaries and the nativities from around the world.
(although I will say the Scandinavian nativity creeped me out a little
because the baby in the manger looked just like Dora the Explorer.
I just knew if I turned it over I would see her backpack!)

It was a great way to kick off the Christmas season!

Lesson Learned Today ...

Don't watch "Extreme Home Makeover"
while trying to put your make up on.

It turns into a wet mascara-y mess.

Just A Thought ...

I was at a thrift store earlier this week with a friend.
She was looking for an ugly sweater, so I decided to go check out the dishes and see of there was anything fun and vintage-y.
As I was standing there looking at everything,
a really creepy guy came and stood next to me.
He was giving off the creepy vibe,
but I stayed there looking at things.
Then I realized that he was standing in front of a huge box full of
They had a large box of knives just kicking it there!
Scenes from every 48 Hours Mystery I've ever watched flew through my mind,
and I left quickly.

So, just a thought ...
probably don't leave a large box of knives in public
where weirdos can have access to them.
I'm just saying.
