Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, totally worn out and screaming,
"WOO HOO, what a ride!"

Friday Fill-ins



This meme is always a good time! Join the fun and do the fill-ins that Janet provides us each week.

1. It's always cold and windy and rainy, sitting on hard metal bleachers, whenever your kid's ball game goes into extra innings.

2. This year I was going to try growing tomatoes. It's not looking too promising.

3. My favorite health and beauty product is Bath & Body Works Warm Vanilla Sugar Body Cream. Love it! (But only on sale.)

4. My youngest has his driver's permit now and is always trying to talk me into a nice long ride. My secret is that I enjoy it too!

5. "Well, first of all ..." is usually the beginning of a really long excuse.

6. My friends and teachers from Middle School; those were the cast of characters in a recent dream and it was slightly disturbing since that was about a million years ago.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to my son's first Sectional baseball game and an end of year celebration, tomorrow my plans include watching the movie Marley and Me with my mom (we both read and loved the book) and Sunday, I want to relax in my awesome hammock and read, read, read!


  1. I somehow agree that "well, first of all" is the beginning of a long excuse.
    Happy Friday!

    My Friday Fill-Ins!

  2. You can't go wrong with something from Bath & Body Works. I love that store.

    I've been wanting to see Marley & Me. Hope you have a great weekend!

  3. Hope you like Marley and Me. It's on my list to see, too.

  4. I agree with number 5.

    Have a great time at the baseball game!

  5. Oh you reminded me I need to do something about planting my tomatoes as well.

    I agree with number 5.

    I enjoyed the movie Marley & Me but you have to separate it from the book. The movie is more about the guy. I still bawled my eyes out at the end so make sure that box of tissues is nearby.

  6. Love your answer to #5...and you're the second person I've read to have a similar answer to #6!

  7. Love warm vanilla sugar too! Love!

  8. I watched the movie Marley and me for the nth time and it never failed to make me cry.

  9. Another week of teasing me with your hammock! If I break down and buy one I'm blaming it on you :)

  10. I somehow managed to post on here twice. Geeze I am clever!

    I must have really agreed with number 5 though :)
