My FAVORITE get together at our home is The Usual Suspects' New Year's Eve Brunch. Many of us have gotten so busy that we can't get together as often as we'd like throughout the year...so it's good to see everyone and play catch up. The brunch starts early and usually lasts until the new year arrives and everyone brings a dish so I don't have to do all the cooking. I simply put out servingware and utensils, make my own dish and pull out all the alcohol the crew left LAST time we all got together. LOL!
This year I made black eyed peas and brown rice and gave everyone a piece of cabbage leaf to put in their wallets to bring the new year in right.
SIP: CUZ SHE KUNTRY!
Everyone is welcome to come, menfolk, kiddies, cool people you know whom we haven't met yet and we laugh, talk, clown, play games and drink!
This year was no different and a good time was had by all! GO US!
What did YOU do for New Year's Eve this year?
Oprah said something about this tequila. Imma need me some of it. STAT. I might have the name wrong but yeah...Imma still need some.
Aiight...I FOUND IT! Casa Dragones Tequila
UPDATE! This costs $250 a bottle.
ABORT, ABORT, ABORT!
SIP: We SHAN'T be purchasing.
Thank you for your support.
N E WAY.
Ain't got Okra money.
T-Monnie can use that money for a whole lotta other stuff.
Robby would kill me.
TravelDiva would drink it all on New Year's anyway.
Imma stick with Jose Cuervo. (That is tequila right?)
Tsiporah and TravelDiva are doing this and I'm considering it because it looks fun and challenging to me. Yall KNOW running bores me to TEARS!
Of course I shall have to reserve a hotel room as close to the finish line as possible so that I may have a proper shower and hair was immediately...but other than that...I think I might be good!
Would yall consider doing it too?
As we talked about before...Netflix has partnered up with the Nintendo Wii and set it up so that you may do instant movie streaming to you television. Yall know I'm alllllllllllllllll about that and have been using it faithfully.
Nintendo contacted me a couple of months ago and asked if I thought my friends would like to learn more about it by way of a Wii/Netflix party and I was like...Um...duh...we LURVE an excuse to get together but my schedule didn't permit making it happen sooner.
So....this weekend we MADE IT HAPPEN CAPTAIN!
FIRST THINGS FIRST!
Yall KNOW Nintendo gives us free stuff because really...who is going to pay to try new stuff out? LOL! Yall also know they usually provide us with FABULOUS food and this time was no exception. We were SPOILT with all the goodies to eat!
So we all got our mingle on and then headed downstairs to experience Wii online!
Robby took over as MC because he's important. (I was paid to say that.)
Isn't his sock line HILARIOUS????? ROFL!
Nintendo provided point cards for all of us to upload new games to our Wii's. I thought the 2000 point cards could only get you one new game but...SURPRISE, SURPRISE! Most of the awesome games are only 1000 points! GO ME! So we could each get two new Wii games! Heck...I can get one for my Wii and one for my DSi XL! GO ME TWICE!!!!!!!!!!!
So we got some Wii action in. Two of our guests had a Wii but not Wii Fit Plus so we made them battle it out to see who would win one. At first they started playing Mario but seriously...a Mario battle really isn't that fun for those of us watching so we had them bowl it out! LOL! I love to PLAY Mario...not watch and I was getting antsy for the controller cuz they kept missing stars. SHEESH!
We also had free Netflix membership for 3 months and there was a battle for that as well. Let me tell yall...these folks are FUN-TAY! And probably even more so because of the Strawberry Cherry Sangria we were nursing.
Robby and I recently found a movie on Netflix that kept our attention, "Book of Love", and we were curious as to what they would think of it so we pulled that one up and got comfy to watch.
Whew! The commentary was HILARIOUS!
We had the loveliest of times sitting in the AIR CONDITIONED HOUSE eating, drinking, playing games and watching movies. Nintendo...yall ROCK!
Next up on our Netflix instant play queue? "Moonlight Mile"
Are YOU using your Wii with Netflix yet?
When you "battle" on Nintendo...what is YOUR game of choice?
Any suggestions as to what games we should all upload to our Wii's?
onefromphilly organized an OUTSTANDING event for us today! She arranged a horseback riding excursion with a real live old fashioned Chuck Wagon cookout on a BONAFIDE RANCH! She sent out the invitations, double checked the head count on the last working day before the event and contacted the ranch to let them know the final headcount.
Scrub your calendar free on July 11th! We got something fun and FABULOUS in the works for you. Deets in your inbox soon. onefromphilly is spearheading!
If any of you wanna roll with us and we don't have your email addy you might wanna rectify that immediately. Send your email address to: TUS.Host@gmail.com and we'll get you on the list.
Isn't she GLOWING????????????
Maaaaaaaaaaan! THEY GOT THEIR RUN ON PLAYAS! Sooooooooooo proud of all of them!
Yes...the photographer was standing on TOP of a huge planter in order to take these shots. Had said photographer got knocked off said photographer's husband was NOT going to be pleased!
JUST CROSSED THE FINISH LINE! GO G-BABY GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Yall notice said photographer was also all up in the middle where the PROFESSIONAL EVENT photographers were like she's all official and whatnot? ROFL!)
They look GOOD after running! You can't even much tell that they were just huffing and puffing 5 minutes ago huh?
I'm in the background singing "THAT'S MY DAWG! THAT'S MY DAWG! ANYBODY GOT ANYTHING TO SAY...THAT'S.MY.DAWG!"
Our baby girl got all emotional on us and started crying at her accomplishment. When our G-Baby cries...we just want her to be happy. Hell...Id'da started tap dancing to see her smile again.
Oh yeah...And she did it waaaaaaaaaay under the time she THOUGHT she'd do it in! GO G-Baby GO!
(I STILL ain't running witchall. EVER!)
We've set it up so that these events aren't a burden on anyone and each event is set up by a different duo. It has evolved into quite the affair with Divas wearing stillettos, fancy clothes, etc.
Oh...and it seems that lately...we all get gifts even if it's NOT our birthday! WHEEEEEEEEE!
If your birthday is in one of the months we're celebrating...your meal is free. We all eat, drink and be merry and really...it's like one of my most FAVORITE things to look forward to. We all love each other so the conversation flows freely and it's exciting that we have something on our schedule to look forward to.
For the months of March and April we went to the Founding Farmers restaurant in DC. The food was EXQUISITE and the drinks? Well...let's just say that cucumber concoction had ya girl feeling SPRIGHTLY indeedly. LOL!
Our hostesses for this event flowed with the theme of the restaurant which is green, green, green. The restaurant is one of the greenest in the nation and well known for using local foods and produce grown right here or VERY close by. In keeping with the restaurant we received two gifts. The first was because they are cheeky as hell and they KNOW their audience. LOL! Wine stoppers! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! The second gift was soooooooo lovely in that they were wrapped in recycled materials and inside...was a lovely mini kit that we may use to grow something in our own home. There were tomatoes, chives, basil, etc. and I can't tell you just how thoughtful it all was.
I was telling someone today just how much I look forward to these events and they shared they wished they had something like that to look forward to as well. I told them that the best thing to do is to start doing it with their friends too. I shared how easy it is and how we all look forward to it because it helps us hone our hostessing skills as well as is an extremely enjoyable time. She then went on to say she wouldn't know where to start so I emailed her what we compiled based on trial and error that makes it easier to do.
I thunk on it and decided to post this becaue you might be looking for something like this to start in your area with your friends too. I gotta tell you that it really has turned out to be a wonderful thing to do and it's always very exciting to see what favors the hostesses come up with for us. Favors are not necessary, of course, but with our group...it's kinda become the norm. We have such a lovely time and learn all about new restaurants in our area that become our favorite places to frequent with family and friends.
Would YOU consider doing something like this with YOUR friends? DO you do something like this? Do you have guidelines? Any tips for us as to how we can continue to perfect our events? If you're in the DC area and we "know" you...please let us know if you'd like to start receiving invites to hang with us.
Someone just called and asked me when is our next event. I reminded them that TWO people had accepted the task to find us something to do next and that I had yet to hear anything regarding.
That's all I'm saying.
Imma be quiet now.
Cuz the next one ain't on me.
SIP: Me needa...
12 - 20 inches of snow falling Friday night - Saturday means I'm not going skiing on Saturday. I'm not driving in that. Nerp. I ain't getting stuck.
If yall decide to still go...take great pics to share. :)
If you're in the DMV and interested in attending a wine seminar with The Usual Suspects this Spring taught by a wine expert...send me an email at CreoleInDC@mac.com with the subject: Wine School
Gladys and Becca hosted our January / February birthday celebration at Cava Mezza in the city. OH.MY.G! The food was sooooooooooooooooo good. Seriously...it was good. I was over there scraping my plates and not EVEN.MUCH worried if anyone saw me either. Good thing my mother wasn't there cuz I'd have been church pinched fo sho! LOL!
See that red stuff in the middle? LAWD.TO.DAY! Delicious on some pita bread! See that cupcake? Becca and G-Baby ordered those special for us from The Cupcake Gallery in ChicaRgo! That's right playas! We had IMPORTED DESSERT! WHAT?????????? Yeah you heard me. BALLING! See them olives? Well...um...erra...nothing. I didn't try them. The red stuff was too good. ROFL!
I don't know what this was or who it was for but we got a bit concerned with how close he was to the fire alarm. LOL!
Say bruh...we don't play with our food. When I tell you the conversation got real mute real quick when the food rolled out...I am NOT lying!
We know good eating. LOL! I can't wait to take The Robinator to this restaurant. He will LURVE it! I know what I'm getting when I go back too. NOTHING BUT LAMB CHOPS! DEEEEEEEE.LUSH.OUS!
Thanks Becca and G-Baby! Yall AL.REA.DY know how much I loved the food. I saw yall looking at me scraping. ROFL!
When Nintendo contacted me about hosting a Wii Fit Plus Party I didn't realize just how much FUN, FUN, FUN I was getting myself into! OHMYG! WE HAD SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH FUN!
Yall know I have an addictive personality to all things FABULOUS right?
Nintendo contacted me recently because they know we like like to keep it fun, funky and fresh over here. They have a new product out and wanted to know if I wanted to come try it on for size. I said hell yeah and when they told me I could bring The Usual Suspects...I was like...SUPER COOL!
Yall know we like to have a good time.
Well...they sent this REALLY cool Chica down to meet with me a few weeks ago and we sat and chatted for a few and decided on some dates for a really FABULOUS fun party! I only had a certain amount of people I could invite and well...I had to stick with the crew of course. Yall know how we do. We ti-zight.
Well...today I was sitting here hacking up a lung thinking I had THE PIG MAN! THE PIG! and my doorbell rang. I went to the door and my friend Mr. FedEx was there. He's my friend because I shop and he delivers. LOL! Hey...I'm a typical housewife in some areas.
BUT...I wasn't expecting anything. Tomorrow...yes...today...no.
Imagine my surprise to find it was a gift from Nintendo with a DSi in it and a game for older, FABULOUS folks like Robby and I, Brain Age2. GO ME! FREE STUFF ROCKS! (Feeling some kinda way they know I'm old though. Humph...why I couldn't get a Ms. PacMan game or something? Wait...I guess that tells my age too huh? ROFL! I don't care WHATCHALL say...Ms. PacMan was soooooooooooooo hot back in the day! ROFL! But I digress...)
Basically they were just saying hey...your party is going to rock...we think you're cool...here is something cool for you to play with until we wear yall out with the Wii Fit Plus! ROFL!
So I charged up the bit of fabulousness and took it with me to the doctor's office. I sat in the corner with my anti-H1N1 mask on and set it up but when I got to the voice recognition part...I kinda couldn't do it then cuz you KNOW I wasn't taking my mask off right? RIGHT!
The kid is in DEFENSE mode.
When I got home I played with it some more and found myself playing Rock, Paper, Scissors even though I haven't played in a coon's age. (Why do old folks say that? Wait...there I go with the old stuff again. Sheesh...see...they knew what they were doing sending me some brain exercise huh? ROFL!)
Hey...I know I'm rambling cuz I'm all high on this cold medicine and can't WAIT to go to bed but I'm still sitting up trying to play this game. Yall KNOW I'm competitive and I'll be DAMNED if Dr. Ryuta Kawashima doesn't think I'm a brainiac of the BRAINIEST of proportions!
NERD GIRLS RULE!!!!!!!!!
This thingy is soooooooooo cool! It has cameras and mics and music just dinka-dinka-dinking along. Me likey MUCHO! E was trying to be all nonchalant about it like...Eh...whatever T-Monnie...don't think you're all cool and whatnot now.
Whatever playa...I'M COOL!THANKS NINTENDO! YALL ROCK!
(Um...yeah...insert that lil man's voice in here from the pharmaceutical commercials with the disclaimer stating that yeah...I got it for free and just because I think it's cool and whatnot...I still got it for free so don't be trying to say T-Monnie told you to do nothing bout nothing and nobody cuz again...I got it free. Yes...I'm throwed the hell off but I'm not ABOUT to get sued. ROFL!)
Is this something YOU would use? Do YOU think about exercising YOUR brain? What kind of games would you be interested in if you had one? You KNOW I'm going to need to add to my arsenal right? RIGHT! (Wait...can it be called an arsenal if you only have ONE of something? Prolly not huh? ROFL!)
Yall know I stopped messing with yall since it seems yall don't take the initiative to plan stuff for us to do too...but Imma need yall to check your Facebook inbox.
Friend: I am freaking out. I cannot find a hat to fit this big ass head to save my life!!! HELP!
SIP: Nut case. Like you’re gonna be uninvited cuz you don’t wear a hat. Leave me alone before I fight you.
I had lunch today with my SUPER FRIENDS. Yup...another 4 hour lunch. LOL!
TravelDiva picked the place and I felt RIGHT at home when I walked in and saw the cutout of our President!
Good talking and laughing our azzes off! onefromphilly actually has a battery operated hand held fan that her sweetie bought her (he actually bought her three...ROFL!) so she's finally retired the folding church fans she usually rocks!
After lunch Becca, G-Baby, onefromphilly and I went shopping. G-Baby was looking for a wrap and bought some FABULOUS perfume after sampling MANY!
We did a bit of browsing and I tried on a few pair of sunglasses. I'm REALLY considering this pair...kinda. Problem is that when I smile the glasses raise up a bit but I guess I am kinda SIPish when I'm wearing my shades so maybe that's not as big of a problem as I currently think huh? What say you?
The girls were VERY diligent in helping me out even making me pull back my hair.
I'm still on the fence about the shades so help ya girl out. I know this isn't the best pic from my BB...but what say you so far? They are a lovely dark gray but I'm concerned about the smile thing and about the size of them on my face.
I had a pretty awesome and laid back day. Me still smiling. :)
These are what the glasses look like UN-BLURRY:
I JUST DECIDED ON THE GIFTS FOR THE TEA AND HAT PARTY!!!!!!!!! IT'S GOING TO BE SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO AWESOME, CUTE AND 100% USABLE!!!!!!!! SUPER EXCITED TO DO!
(I'm such a girl. ROFL!)
The Evites for our Tea and Hat party went out today! Please remember I'm old and crusty so if you didn't receive an invitation and would like to attend, please, please, PLEASE simply send me an email with TEA PARTY in the subject line.
Hey...I'm not as organized as I'd like to be. LOL!
The Tea and Hat party is going to be at a LOVELY venue and should be all around FABULOUS girly girl fun!
Indulge me a minute as I talk about my lovely, LOVELY friends, The Usual Suspects.
We have decided to get together once a month for lunch. If someone has had a birthday in that month...they don't pay and the rest of us absorb the cost as a birthday gift to them. We always go somewhere different and we have a really good time.
How good you ask? Can you say a 4 hour lunch?????????? Seriously...today we had a 4 hour lunch and when I tell you nobody was in a rush to leave...I am not messing with you.
We talk about EVERYTHING! All of my friends are doing big things so we always have something exciting to talk about and the advice that flows is the kinda stuff folks PAY for cuz you know it's coming from someone who cares about you and wants to see you succeed in all aspects of life.
I hope all of you have a good group of friends as we do. The friendships I have here I will never, ever, EVER take for granted and cherish so very much even though some of them are mean to me and call me while sitting across the table from me to be even more evil. Humph.
Oh...onefromphilly? THAT CHICK BE SHOPPING! That is all! ROFL!
I love my friends and know how very blessed I am to have such lovely ones.
Do you and your friends have a recurring date to catch up and support each other?
We just had lunch with the Usual Suspects and for the first time...some of the menfolk joined us! They posted up on one end of the table and talked business and sons (a mess I tell ya...a MESS! ROFL!) and we talked about everything else. The purpose of this lunch was to celebrate or to discuss based on the election results. Boy am I glad we CELEBRATED! Me, Becca, onefromphilly, TravelDiva, Shawn, Honest, TDJ, Tsiporah, Kayla, male Shawn, Mr. TravelDivo, The Robinator, and Mike had a FABULOUS time at Lauriol Plaza. We had pitchers of margaritas and pitchers of sangria and food, food, FOOD! I LOVED IT!
My stoopit nice camera that takes crappy pictures is in the shop. I got out my old camera and took pics at lunch but I'll be danged if I can't find the damn cord for it. Sheesh.
Tsiporah took a pic of me with her camera and sent it to me so yall could see me and my stick legs in a dress but the lighting is all off. My belt looks red when it's sooooooooooo not. My bag looks a HIDEOUS purple color when it is a lovely DEEP purple. And...my hair looks all coconut shiny and black. LOL! And it's still brown with minimal sheen on my dang head. LOL!
This is the color of my bag per the camera on my compRuter:
Yup...that's an adequate representation of the color of the bag. Now look at the pic from Tsiporah's camera:
Big difference huh? LOL!
Well now yall know why I keep my stick legs covered up. LOL! Hopefully TravelDiva's pics came out better and I don't look so creeeeeeeepy but hey...ain't like I'm scared to show yall the ugly. LOL!
Have you done any election celebrating with friends yet?
(P.S. Kayla is going to get jacked for the sweater she had on today and her hair was soooooooo cute! I'm not jacking Becca for her Obama bling shirt cuz Imma just order me one! HA!)
I just want yall to know that yall ain’t ISH! Since I been busy yall ain’t planned nothing. THAT IS JUST CA-RA-ZY! The dang Summer will be Fall before yall know it. Keep messing round ya here! I am SOME kinda disappointed in yall.
I think Hostess and Honest should plan the next event!
So the posse took me to dinner and showed me one HECK of a good time. I even got GIFTS! GO ME! Whoooooohooooo! Nobody but THE TravelDiva would think to get me a grounding something thingy for my puter along with a set of WORLD adapters. NOBODY BUT HER!
The dinner was absolutely lovely and it was such a nice send off that I'm still grinning from ear to ear. My friends are FABULOUS people...they truly are! LOVE THEM!
We hadn't seen Roycee in a LONG TIME so it was a MAJOR treat to see her! The jacket she had on was the HotNESS and I'm going to the site she bought it from post haste to see what other goodies they have.
G-BABY GOT A PROMOTION TODAY! MO MONEY MO MONEY MO MONEY! GO G-BABY! CONGRATS, CONGRATS, CONGRATS!
Sissy walked in looking Divalicious and was promptly deemed Michelle as in Michelle Obama. Yup...she was looking VERY presidential! LOL!! Either that are evil...I haven't picked which one yet. LOL!
Wow...yall have no idea how much I love my girls. They are just the loveliest group of fun loving ladies in the WORLD! WE LOVE LIFE! And we keep our stride STANK! Or...walk elegantly depending on the company we are in. :)
The Ranch is expecting rain again tomorrow. *sigh*
The ranch just called to say it's pouring rain. The horses are all wet as is the trail so we have to reschedule. I have spoken with everyone in person except for IJ. IJ...I don't seem to have your number so please confirm that you've seen this message via email.
P.S. PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOUR SCHEDULE PERMITS YOU JOINING US NEXT SUNDAY APRIL, 13TH! (TravelDiva I hope this clears you up cuz I was sooooooooo bummed you couldn't make it!)
Smooches! Les told me yesterday that she didn't receive her evite and yet it was sent. I have noted there are about 8 people who have not looked at the evite and am wondering if you never received it? So far we have 22 people confirmed so far and I don't want anyone to think they weren't included when they absolutely are!
Hit me on the hip if you want to attend and haven't received your evite.
Aiight folks! The March event is going to be in April. ROFL!
When: Sunday, April 6th @ 9:00 am
Where: You'll get the information in your evite.
What: HORSEBACK RIDING ON A REAL WORKING RANCH! LOL! No worries...they accomodate folks who have never ridden before by giving a lesson! We are going to learn calf roping, have sack races, a FABULOUS healthy lunch, and go for a 90 minute ride along a BEAUTIFUL trail with a guide!
Cost: $60 per person for those who are riding (and I hope most of us are)
$20 per person for lunch, calf roping and sack racing, hiking, chilling, napping on porch in rockers. LOL!
There is no deposit necessary, pay when you get there CASH ONLY.
HOWEVER...when you RSVP it will be used as the headcount for the ranch so they know how much food to prepare for us, etc.
We'll travel there via convoy so we'll meet somewhere and get in where we fit in.
Children over age 6 are welcome. According to how many children are coming I'd like to flirt with the idea of everyone paying $10 more so we can help pay for the kids. I think it's important for kids to have cool adventures too and that could get costly for the parents. I hope you guys are cool with this as I truly feel it's the right thing to do. If not...I understand. TRULY.
Aiight...send me an email with USUAL SUSPECT in the subject line if you're interested in going so I may add you to the evite. Anyone is welcome to join us so long as you're good people, you enjoy having a good time and laughing your butt off and are in the DC Metro area on the date! ROFL!
As yall know we had a death in the family (among other reasons) in February so Travel Diva made the VERY respectful decision to cancel February's event.
That said...IT'S ON PLAYA'S!
I'm in the process of planning something UBER COOL for March so make sure yall let ya girl know NOW what Sunday's in March you CAN.NOT attend and I'll try my best to accommodate as many schedules as I can.
I'm sooooooooooooooooooo excited about this event and I know yall are gonna LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!
Again...let me know what Sunday you CAN'T roll...mmmkay?
I just got my invite for The Usual Suspect's January event and baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaby...THIS MIGHT BE THE BEST ONE EVERRRRRRRRRRRRRRR! GO SISSY AND LESLEY (January's organizers).
And this one is DEFINITELY something the menfolk will enjoy HANDS DOWN!
I can't WAIT! I CAN'T WAIT I CAN'T WAIT~!
*BLINK* *BLINK* *BLINK*
The Usual Suspects is a co-ed group IF members of opposite sex CONTACT us and say they want to participate. We've had onefromphilly's son, Barbara's son and nephew, E and the Robinator at events. When the invitation is extended it always says...
IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE PLEASE CONTACT A USUAL SUSPECT FOR DETAILS!
So you see...at that point...it's all on you playa.
And THIS is the reason I never say the Usual Suspect Divas...because I LOVE it when the menfolk join us.
That said...if YOU AND YOUR WIFE PUNK...want to join us for our January event (which I do believe a guy will LOVE by the way) just pick one of the Usual Suspects that your azz KNOWS and let them know you want to be included AND YOU WILL! AND BRING THE KIDS! (Yall...oneblackman has the CUTEST kids but don't tell him I said that! LOL!)
We are NOT manhaters as you suggest and the next time I see you...Imma punch you in the throat ala Erica B. style.
P.S. If anyone wants to join us for our January event...please contact a Usual Suspect and let them know. Kids are ALWAYS welcome unless it's somewhere kids shouldn't be and we'd tell you far in advance if they couldn't come. Sissy is in charge of January so know this...IT'S GONNA BE OFF THE CHAIN! ROFL!
Me: Whatchu eating?
Sissy: Some of them damn cookies Tsiporah made. You tasted any?
Me: No...I've been trying to stay away from cookies.
Sissy: Taste one.

I'm so tired I can't sit up straight.
The Usual Suspect's December event is THIS.SUNDAY! WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! I can't WAIT! CAN'T WAIT, CAN'T WAIT, CAN'T WAIT!
Something you guys don't know is that I LOVE fun surprises and the Usual Suspects are in for quite a treat on Sunday! LOL! When we meet up I usually bring something for everyone...you know...make sure no one leaves empty handed. It's that Southern stuff I'm made of. They're not leaving empty handed for CHRISTMAS of course! Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
I.CAN'T.WAIT! I CAN'T WAIT! I CAN'T WAIT!
Whew...can yall tell I'm excited? LOL!
Totally wish YOU lived near and could join us. You'd have a BLAST! I promise! Sissy is planning January and I know what she has in mind and if she does what I think she's going to do...BAAAAAAAAAAAAABY...IT'S GONNA BE ON!
Usual Suspects...LOVING LIFE!
Check your email. :)
P.S. Anyone wanting to start hanging with us...let me (or a member) know. We do something different once a month and a new person hosts the event each time. This way we can all hone our "event planning" skills while enjoying life!
I feel drained this morning. Yup...I know it's because of yesterday. See...we had a BLAST at the event but baaaaaaaaaby...SIP was not pleased.
We got lost. No...I'm sorry...not LOST...more like...DAMMIT WHERE IN THE HELL ARE WE HOW DO WE GET THE HELL OFF AND WE I SWEAR IF WE DON'T GET IT THIS TIME WE.ARE.GOING.BACK.HOME!
(Chest heaving, fist waving, expletives flowing)
Mapquest was NOT our friend.
The Robinator and I were hanging yesterday morning running Thanksgiving related errands so I called my road dawg, Tsiporah and asked her to email the directions to me so I'd have them on my trusty new superhero tool...the Blackberry Curve.
When she sent them, Robby and I were in line at WholeFoods. I exclaimed how the Mapquest to email to phone is the MOST FABULOUS thing I love about the phone. I LOVE IT! He exclaimed that he loves doing that on his Blackberry too.
Robby: So you like your new phone?
Me: I LOVE it honey!
Robby: I'm glad you're happy with it.
I tiptoed up and gave him a kiss on the cheek. The birds from Disney movies started flitting around us, people around us smiled at how sweet we were, the sky opened up and a harpist started playing etheral music.
Sweet ish bruh. Sweet ish.
***NOTE TO USUAL SUSPECTS! YOU MAY CUT AND PASTE WHATEVER PICS YOU WANT FOR YOUR SITE!
We had soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much fun! For now...I'm just posting pics. I'm working on the vid-yo while watching the rest of The American Music Awards...just saw Beyonce. I love me some Beyonce. That was a GREAT speach. Gracious, short and sweet.
Um...did Mary J go back in time? I could SWEAR I've seen her in this same fit, same hair, same dance like 12 years ago. Now I'm not saying CHick doesn't look good cuz she does. I mean hey...she looked a mess for a long time and she is looking the best EVER now. She should be an inspiration to EVERYONE as to what you can do if you work on yourself.
Um...Idda got up and went to the bathroom halfway through Latifah's song. It was too long and boring.
RHIANNA OVER BEYONCE? Never in a middle years. NEVER.EVER.IN.A.MILLION.YEARS! Oh...I forgot...Jay Z reps her...he prolly told B she was gonna hafta sit this one out for the good of the paper.
