Think Of What He's Seen?!?

Keeping my neighbor busy while her husband prepared her surprise party was not hard. Our neighborhood was holding its annual parade and carnival so as we returned to her house after our fill of local crafts and waffle cones, the added cars surrounding her house wasn’t unusual. How do you hide a group of 75 people? Plan the party the same day as a neighborhood celebration!

After going home to change I walked in the door to a party going full steam. It was a wonderful turn out. I met her sisters from out of town and her old college roommate. I had heard so much about these people I felt as if I knew them already.

I had excused myself to refresh my drink and, upon returning, I saw the back of a head that looked strangely familiar. My neighbor said “Oh Ann! I believe you know my brother-in-law?” This tall man turned around with the biggest grin and said “Well, hello Ann! How are you?”


It was my OB-Gyn! What the?!?

I stood there shaking his hand like a fool. His wife said “Oh, are you one of his patients, too? Nice to meet you.” Um, yeah. Nice to meet you, too. I felt so awkward. I wasn’t prepared! I didn’t have an appointment!

I did my best to make pleasant conversation and prayed that my inner-filter was at the top of its game. (No Ann, don’t mention your last check-up. No Ann, don’t think about what he’s seen. And please Ann, get yourself under control and stop sweating!) I complimented him on his sporty looking shirt and said it looked much better than his scrubs. Lame.

I just couldn’t handle the pressure anymore and excused myself to get a very large refill. As I passed my neighbor she couldn’t help but laugh. Hey… just whose “surprise” party was this supposed to be anyway?

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!) Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story: I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair , my hair style was a nightmare. My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogram

My Questions Answered By Chef Pati Jinich - Video

Rob and I have been focusing on finding foods and spices that will help us take some weight off.  I've been slightly obsessed with staying on my exercise track (on week 8 now :->) and hope to get rid of this jiggly belly that has become wa-a-a-ay too comfortable on my body.  The older you get the harder it is to lose weight.  What I would say to my 40 year old self - 'See that pouch starting?  Do your crunches and planks now!  7 years from now it's going to get ugly !' I've found that spices cumin, cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes and turmeric are noted to increase metabolism.  ( Yes please !)  After a good workout coconut water is more beneficial in regulating your electrolytes, and lower in calories, than sports drinks.  It also contains more potassium than other drinks which is an important component in helping to build muscle which, in turn, helps you burn more calories. And my most surprising discovery - eating avocados help burn belly fat! I&#
