Modern Fam

Did anyone watch Modern Family last night? First, if you don't watch this show, you are seriously missing is so funny...I love every single character! Anywhoo, the show last night was Matt and I. HA!

Here, Claire is talking to her Dad about a huge fight she and her husband got into. She is explaining how mad she is that Phil (her hubby) is now in love with wedge salads b/c some guy at his work recommended that he try them. She is SOOOO mad b/c she has been trying to get Phil to have a wedge salad for MANY years and he has always that a friend of his talked him into it he loves it! Ha! That is sooo Matt and I.

I love to tell Matt to try certain foods/drinks like:

(This is pizza with something on it other than pepperoni and sausage.)

You get the point. Matt always says "Eeew that looks thanks!" But it never fails...if a friend suggests it (or really anyone other than me), he will try it, love it, and come home claiming he has found the best new meal and I HAVE to try it...HA!

That's why I love Modern's so relate-able :)

Planning is under way for Matt's 30th/80's party this to come!

DETOX...are you scared?

Happy Monday!

Today is day 1 of a 5 day detox I have signed myself up for. Yikes.

So far today I have had 1 vanilla nutrimeal shake, a packet of a.m. vitamins and a peanut butter crunch nutrition bar. Doesn't sound like the usual detox really does it? I must say, nothing tastes exceptionally great, but I have things to eat so I'm not feeling starving. Here is what my "plan" looks like:

This particular cleanse is called Usana. I know someone who made it through all 5 days and was really happy with the results and said she didn't feel hungry or miserable at all. Hmmmm wonder if I can make it.

Thank goodness I have the Bachelor to help get me through the evening! Honestly, I'm putting it out there...I think she's going to win:

Of course I love Emily, but I just don't think they would make it once the show is off the air!

Guess what is this weekend???????

Yay! Too bad I haven't seen ANY of the movies that are nominated :(

Oh, our 80's party for my hubby's 30th bday is also this weekend, but we'll talk about that once I have photos to share!

Well, we've made it to Tuesday afternoon. I got back from Nashville Sunday evening and attempted to sit through the Grammy's (although my favorite part is the red carpet). Last night Matt and I and two of our friends went to Prima Vista for dinner...Yummy! After wards, I watched one of my favorite shows...E! Fashion Police. I nearly disagreed with them 100% this time around. Not that my opinion matters, but here were my thoughts:
TERRIBLE (although her performance was amazing and so was the dress she wore during it)

TERRIBLE - what in the world are these pants??? If you saw him introduce one of the bands you would have wet yourself...awful.

Beautiful...I lover her and thought she looked sooooo beautiful! Everyone on E! ripped her apart.

Beautiful...although it could use a few additional inches in length.

Oh lordy...what to even say about this...I loved the entrance and all the buzz it created, but I was SOOOOO disappointed with her HATCH! I was expecting all kinds of goo, noises, cracking, emerging, etc! Ha...she basically stepped out of it and put a sponge on her disappointing!

That's all I got. I was actually very discouraged by the fashion at this years Grammys...I was expecting so much more! Can't wait until the Oscars! Seriously. I'm upset b/c I missed the Bachelor last night so I'll have to read up online to see what happened.

Chat soon!

Guess where I'll be?

Hello and Happy Thursday,

I have a scratch in my throat and I'm feeling a little out of sorts today...just HOPING and PRAYING it is nothing! Guess where I'll be in a little over 24 hint:

Did you figure it out? Nashville...hooray!

Better yet, guess where I'll be in less than 30 days? One hint:

Can you figure it out this time? OK...NAPLES, FL! Actually that photo is Marco Island, but close enough! We are going for a spring vaca with my parents and two of our friends. It's going to be SO much fun...I can't wait!

I'm getting my hair highlighted tonight. Yes, you are latest dye job did not last long at all! ha! I liked the color just felt so much more washed out. Back to light we go!

I can't talk about vacation posts without mentioning that Matt and I will be here in June:

Maui my friends...for my sister-in-laws nuptuals! Looks like PARADISE!

Oh I have to show you one funny thing. I follow the Cincinnati Zoo on Facebook and Twitter and I thought this was hilarious! The other day they posted this caption:
"Here's our #2 interesting animal reproduction fact - Make Love Not War: Instead of fighting, bonobos have sex! Actually, their whole societal structure seems to revolve around sex. Bonobos use sex as greetings, a means of solving disputes, making up for fights, and as favors in exchange for food."

Better was followed with this picture:

Too funny...they have some smart social media people at the zoo because that post sure did get a lot of attention!

Till next time!

Sunday Funday

Hi pretty ladies,

Today's the big day. I hope not to offend anyone who is a Steelers fan, but I will not be rooting for BIG BEN! I have heard horror stories about how mean of a person he is (let alone all the legal trouble he has been in). SOOO, here is what I will be wearing for the game this evening!

My neighbor made a really cute shirt...I'll have to take a photo tonight and show you gals later!

I'll be making a dip for the party that is soooo good it's Harry and David pepper onion relish mixed with cream cheese...ever heard of it?

If you haven't had it, ORDER IT and get to mixin! It is so good and so easy. I use large fritos for dipping...yummy!

I'm happy to announce that we are leaving for Nashville on Friday for a fun weekend getaway and I have purchased my ticket to see ERIC CHURCH in Lexington in March. Thinking while we are in Nashville that I would like to visit the Opryland Hotel. If you've been there and can tell me anything about it please do!


He really looks worthy of a superbowl win doesn't he???? Eeeew!
