A Taste Of Home

Last night, Mark and I indulged in some Skyline 3-ways. They tasted just as good as I remember! Luckily, Mark loves all Cincinnati classics: Graeter's, Montgomery Inn, goetta (did anyone see the Man vs. Food in Cinci?!), LaRosa's, and of course Skyline.

To Mark's disappointment, I will not be dressing up for Halloween. I will, however, be wearing an orange blouse that I purchased at F21 a few weeks ago. I consider that to be a decent effort.

Count on me overindulging in the sweets department though....

I've got a bone to pick with Kim & Kyle Richards, who are being kind of nasty this season on RHOBH. I always liked Kyle, but this side of her is not pretty. She's clearly in denial of Kim's problem(s).

I will say that Brandi Glanville is just as looney as I expected. No surprises there.

I like the looks of Charleston's upcoming forecast. 70's sound just fine to me!

Celeb Commentary & A Fall Indulgence

I am addicted to this show and I don't know why? There's something fascinating about the whole dynamic. Not that I agree with the lifestyle. I just think it's interesting (and a lil crazy).

Come out with it already, Jessica!

Snooki was on the Today Show this morning. UGH. And was interviewed by Matt Lauer. I can only imagine what he was thinking.

I'm welcoming the cooler weather with open arms! One of my favorite treats?

I've been enjoying a lovely Chai Tea Latte in the mornings rather than my regular coffee or green tea. It's so spicy and delicious!

Ides Of March

I'm wanting to go see this movie but haven't heard reviews from too many people. It was filmed in my hometown of Cincinnati (and some scenes at my alma mater, Miami U!) which makes it even more interesting! How bad can a movie be with Clooney and Gosling?

Anyone catch crazypants on the RHONJ reunion? She is seriously off her rocker. It's clear that everyone sees through her BS now and Teresa no-likey.

There are so many reasons she bothers me, but number 1 has to be her absolutely atrocious grammar. How many times on Sunday did she refer to a group of people as "you's"? What is that about? Is it proper English and I'm not aware? Unfortunately, I don't think Teresa has any idea how ignorant she comes across. Points for Team Gorga/Manzo/Laurita.

I was going to write about the RHONJ reunion this morning.

But as I'm getting ready for work I hear "Reality TV couple who struggled with infertility to make big announcement." I KNEW it was going to be Giuliana and Bill. Finally their time had come and she is pregnant.

Not the case.

Instead, Giuliana came on to announce that she has breast cancer (early stages).

At their last IVF appointment, the Dr. insisted on her getting a mammogram, which she initially fought, as she has no family history. The results came back and were obviously not good. In true G & B spirit they continue to have an optimistic outlook and still plan on trying again in the future for a baby.

Just shocking news. Certainly puts things into perspective.

Speedy Delivery

So, the doorbell rang early this morning, as I was getting ready for work and I was thoroughly confused. Why would someone be at the door at 8am?

After a few minutes, I checked outside and found a package. I figured it was a book or movie Mark had ordered from Amazon. Then I saw the words SAKS DIRECT! Immediately, I thought, Wow! What a great husband I have, acting like he doesn't know what this is and all along he had ordered me a special surprise.....

I ripped into the package, really excited to see what it was Mark had gotten me.

And saw this:


I tried to find a packing slip to figure out who's misplaced order we'd received and there I saw it. Ordered from my mom for Mark. What! I am now playing second fiddle to my husband.

Clearly, a great start to Mark's weekend!

My parents will be arriving today and I can't wait for some R & R.

Happy weekend!

WILW- Halloween Edition

We have had some amazing weather the last few days and I am loving every second of it!

Some of our neighbors have the coolest sparkly/light up pumpkins and I am determined to get some for Halloween. I LOVE trick or treaters! Handing out candy is my favorite. Cooper, on the other hand, not so fond of them.

I will be spray painting pumpkins.

I had some beautiful mums that I bought at Lowe's a few weeks ago. These would have looked great for Halloween. But no, they are all dead. I really should just stay away from all plant life.

The most important aspect of Halloween- candy. Duh.

The Middleton sisters have the best hair! I need to know their secret(s).

Did anyone catch on RHOBH last night that Lisa, "Just had lunch with the Duchess of York yesterday"?
