- the way they sound coming out of your mouth
the way they make you feel
the expression on their face when you sneak your fancy word into conversation -
So of course, I have a dictionary app on my phone.
And it comes with the Word of the Day.
So here is one of my favorites:
[FOO fuh raw]
~ a fuss over a trifling matter
~ excessive amount of decoration or ornamentation
Sample: Ashley, the new Bachelorette, had on too much foofaraw at last night's rose ceremony.
Somebody, PLEASE use it in a conversation.
And tell me how much fun you had.

So 30 came and went.
And it was a BLAST!
I was treated to a whole weekend of celebrations.
First, there was a GNO,
which started at Kona Grill for some requisite sushi
and DEE-licious Sprinkles cupcakes.
Next stop was Sephora, to pick up my birthday gift
and then we all went to LUSH!
and were pampered with scrubs, soaps, and masks.
We made H&M our last stop,
where I skipped away with an
adorable shrug, two satin tiered tanks, a necklace and headband.
And of course, we ended the night with fro-yo and Road Karaoke.
It was such a good night.
The celebration continued the next night at the movies
where Linc, Chris and I caught "The Social Network" which I loved!
Add in a Dr. Pepper, some popcorn, and coconut M&M's, and I was golden.
On Monday, Ali, Kate, Clark, Ivan and I dined at
my most fave of restaurants!!
We had frog legs, fried alligator, soft shell crab, shrimp gumbo, crab cakes, and fillet mignon.
AND we also had key lime pie, banana pudding, creme brulee, and bread pudding.
It was exquisite!
We laughed so much that night!
Which did not help our super full stomachs.
We ended that night with Road Karaoke, too!
It was a wonderful way to celebrate my 30 years on this planet.
Especially since I will probably always have the extra 30 lbs I gained from that weekend to remind me.

The whole experience:
- taking stock of the many dee-licious exotic flavors
- sampling my top 3
- deciding which flavors go best together
- deciding which of the many toppings to add to my icy treat
- then chillin' with my pals and talking gossip

I look toward 30 with stars in my eyes
To me, it means a chance for change,
I want so desperately for something wonderful to happen,
I've grown so tired of being trapped in the
I want excitement.
I want so, so much...
And hence my fear of 30.

- Love Lettuce - lavender scented exfoliating mask for normal to oily skin.
It has almond bits to gently remove dead skin and
china clay to absorb the dirt off your skin.
SexyPeel - a delish bar of soap!
I almost want to eat it!
This is a bar of soap that I would welcome to have my mouth washed out with!
Now, one of their most luxurious items are their Bath Bombs.

My puppies graduated!
I was so nervous, thinking for sure they were gonna fail.
But they didn't!
I'm so proud!
They both had to show they can
- leave it
- drop it
- come when called
It was a long and grueling test.
But let me tell you,
they were well rewarded with
yummy blueberries and lovely carrots.
Delicious and nutritious.
But what really made me laugh was this past Sunday at Church.
I was sitting next to this sweet, but mischievous little boy,
who held on to his little plastic water cup that was passed at Sacrament.
He started chewing on it and cracking it
and making a big racket.
His Mother, red in the face, kept whispering
"Give that to me!"
"Leave that alone!"
I quickly turned my face and buried it in my hymn book!
Although, to be honest, I don't think I fooled the red-faced Mother.
My shoulders were shaking so bad!
You see, my puppies passed their obedience school.
They both know the Drop It/Leave it command.
Maybe I should give that poor mother PetSmart's card?
