Super Lame...yet Awesome?

I do NOT like Dancing with the Stars. I think it is lame. Super Lame. So, I was pretty annoyed when I saw a commercial for this:

Ugh. Seriously? LAME!!!

Seriously...I'd rather clean my bathrooms or vacuum than watch this crap.

Last Monday was the first time the show aired. Since I had only seen one commercial for it, I had no idea who was on it or even what channel it was on. That night, my girlfriend gave me a call, asking if I was watching it.

"H to the NO" I told her.

....but then, she pointed this out:

WHAT?! BETHENNY "Real Housewife, with a rock'n body, hot husband and beautiful baby" FRANKEL?
Do you all know that I love Bethenny Frankel? I do; a lot. She is gorgeous, successful, and didn't marry or have a child until she was almost 40. I want to be her. You may remember her from the Real Housewives of NYC or Bethenny Getting Married? lame as Skating with the Stars is...and is most CERTAINLY is...I will be watching each week -- at least until Bethenny is voted off.

....which could be soon because she isn't doing very well.

Thanksgiving Picture Extravaganza

What a Weekend!

Obviously, I spent the weekend with the family...which continues to get bigger and bigger...

Back Row (L to R): Sara (Scott's fiance), Scott, David (brother-in-law), Mom, Dad, Kevin, Ashley (Kevin's Girlfriend)
Then: Me, Elizabeth and Sarah
Down in Front: Kendyl and Aden (Elizabeth and David's kids)

As usual, we took tons of family pictures (which the boys were super happy about)

This is my favorite one of the 5 kids

Kevin hates his picture taken

Scott loves his picture taken

My favorite of all the ladies

Aden-Pants and Kendy-Kins

Finally, a good one with Kevin and Ashley

Kevin blocking is face with Kendyl

And again...

Sara and Scott don't mind posing

Such a cute pic of Sarah and Kendyl. Saturday after Thanksgiving, Sarah took Kendyl to see Tangled.

Of course, the dogs had to get in on the action. We had all 4 dogs at Mom and Dad's.

Kevin and Max

Me with Niko (mine), Molly (black and white dog - Mom's), and Sophie (Kevin's)

Sarah and Sophie

As hard as we try, we can never get all 4 dogs to pose together. Even holding them doesn't work. Sarah is with Sophie, Ashley's holding Max, I'm holding Niko and Kevin is holding Max.

And, a few of my favorites:

Obviously, we had a ton of food, played board games, wrestled with the dogs, got almost zero sleep and barely argued at all! :)

I'm Thankful for my wonderful family. We are each vastly different from the next, but that's what makes everyone so special to me.

Hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving!!!

Happy Halloween

Yes, yes, I know I am late posting this.

One of my favorite holidays is Halloween. There is nothing better than dressing up and partying with friends all night. I am a people-watcher by nature, so costume parties are like crack to me. People bring out who they really are at costume parties....

Some like candy

Some like to show team support

There are criminals

There are video game junkies, geeks...and a whole lot of people that are confused
(can you figure some of these out? I had trouble)

We were invited to a party held in a hall in GR. It was the best Halloween party I've ever attended.

Here we are pre-game

...and then the night began...

Yes, I was the ghost from PacMan

...did you catch the extra feature on my costume?..

Sisterly Love

I love my sister, Sarah.

I can be having an awful couple of days...and out of the blue, she Rick Rolls me.

Please tell me you know what Rick Roll'ing is...

H1N1 and Herpies?

Like many of you, I had H1N1 last fall. Quite frankly, it really sucked. I had a fever for 9 days straight, lost 6 pounds (ok, not so bad), and had absolutely no energy whatsoever.

Now, I'm thinking there is more to the illness than just being flu-like...

For the past year, I have been more sick than I have been in the last 29 years. I randomly get fevers that come on in the middle of nowhere and disappear in a couple of hours. I get more headaches. I get more colds. I have more sinus pressure. I need more sleep. I throw up more often. ...and the list goes on.

Yes, I realize I am getting old, but we aren't going there now...

I legitimately, seriously, honestly believe there is more to H1N1 than just being the flu. It was the super flu, wasn't it? Almost everyone I know that had H1N1 has been more sick in the last year than they have been in years.

Doctors should do a study on this. I truly believe that H1N1 does something to the immune system. I believe that when I come in contact with certain bacteria, I then get sick for a bit. is almost like it causes "out-breaks"... perhaps like how Herpies works...

Did any of you have H1N1? How have YOU felt in the last year?
