Mason Street

Today I turned onto east Mason to find that traffic was backed up for blocks and no one was moving. After 10 minutes cars slowly moved forward and we could see police and ambulance lights. It turns out there was a bad accident and they needed to pick up after it. We all know Mason is already a pain to drive down because of the construction, but it doesn't help when cars are speeding down the road and not giving themselves enough time to brake for someng making a left turn.

A similar situation happened a few weeks ago to my sister and her car was banged up pretty bad. None of us are perfect drivers, but it concerns me to see kids walking on the sidewalk along Mason and construction workers are doing their job in the street and people continue to fly down Mason. We have a long way to go until Mason is done and we might as well just take our time and be nice to each other on the road.

Keith and Nicole

Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman are celebrating their first wedding anniversary today! Those two have been through a lot in the last year, but frankly, who hasn't. Aaron and I will celebrate our first wedding anniversary this July and people have asked what we have planned. The truth...we both have to work and I have a wedding shower the next day. That's the reality of married life huh?!

Today I had to go to the DMV to get my license plate renewed and as always, it was an ordeal.
First, there was this man who was constantly talking to himself. There was a kid that kept
yelling at his mom, and it seemed that everyone who worked there was in a bad mood. So I
decided to be overly nice to the woman working behind the counter in hopes of putting her
in a better mood. I asked how she was doing and I didn't get an answer. I tried to make
small talk, and I was ignored. When I was done I looked at her and said, "have a great day"
and she smiled back and wished me the same. It took awhile for her to budge, but I hope
a friendly farewell made her day a little bit better.

I wish I'd thought of this

In today's Green Bay Press Gazette's Classified section was an article about the "BraBaby". It's a heavy-duty plastic cage for your bra that goes in your clothes washer. That way our $65 dollar Victoria's Secret bras won't get ruined anymore. Let's face it, hand washing bras takes up time and it barely gets them clean. You can pick up the device at or at Linens 'N Things and Bed Bath & Beyond for only $19.95. Happy washing!

For all brides

Here's a great tip we found for brides to save money on their wedding cake. Some cake providers offer a fake wedding cake. There's a little spot for you and your groom to "cut the cake" that's real, but your guests will be served dessert from a sheet cake in the kitchen that the guests never see. For our wedding, we had a smaller wedding cake that served about 100, and we had a sheet cake (with the same filling) that served the remaining 100 saved us a lot of money!

Bermuda Shorts

This morning we were talking about summer fashion and "bermuda shorts" came up. They're in style this summer and I really want a pair, but they look horrible on me. Because of their length they make my thighs look huge! I bought 3 pairs from Younkers and I ended up returning all of them. Maybe certain fashions are meant to be admired from a distance.

Ten minutes ago I took the recycling out and I felt a rain drop on my arm. I looked down and a bird had pooped on me! Has that happened to you? It was nasty. Hopefully you weren't eating while you were reading this.

Does this make any sense?

I went to the East Side Y today and I noticed something odd while I was in the parking lot talking to a friend. There was a blue car that kept driving up and down the aisles trying to find a place to park. Keep in mind the parking lot wasn't full. After 5 minutes the driver waited for a car to pull out of a its space ( it was the 3rd space from the door) and then she pulled in. The driver got out of her car and she looked really in shape and she carried her water bottle into the Y. Now, isn't it odd that she needed a spot close to the door of a facility where she was going to workout?!

Before He Cheats

Just days after tabloids reported NFL quarterback Tony Romo wanted to take a break from Carrie Underwood because the football season is about to start, new reports say Tony invited newly-single Jessica Simpson down to Dallas for a visit and she said 'yes'! If you ask me, when it comes to talent Jessica and Carrie aren't even on the same playing field.

Weekend Plans

With summer around the corner, for me, this weekend is for getting stuff done. I bought flowers last week and some dirt and they need to be potted and my house is a mess. You know those times when you're wishing for rain so you're forced to stay inside and get stuff done? That's the point I'm at.

I really hope my flowers live through the summer. They're in a spot where they get the hot morning sun, but sit in the shade for the rest of the afternoon. If you have a green thumb and wouldn't mind passing along some tips, that'd be greatly appreciated.
