11 hours and 5 minutes...

In case you missed the most amazing tennis match in history...A six foot nine tennis god from UGA defeated another tennis god from France in an 11 hour and five minute match during first rounds at Wimbleton...whether you are a tennis fan or not - can you think of anything you'd want to do for that long??? Sleep maybe. But, after that I don't know...that is a freakin long time and it was hot and humid and neither one ever gave up. I was starting to think they just might be there for ever. There are lots of things I love to do but I don't think I could or would want to do most of them for that long. I couldn't even shop that long and - wow - that is shocking!! I love to read but I don't think I could even do that for 11 hours. I might could enjoy non stop movies at Gold Class Cinemas for that long - if bathroom breaks were included and I guess the tennis gods did get those. Don't forget the little button and movie slaves just waiting to make you happy....

Speaking of happy - I took Baby Girl/The world's Best College Student that is home for the Summer - to get our special occasion mani/pedi treat today. First of all, I am always shocked at how much this costs!! How does anyone do this every other week??? We stretch ours out for about two months. Maybe they are charging us more cause our feets are all grody. Who knows. I can paint my own but I just go for the foot sex. I mean massage. Is it just me - or do you ever feel like you are getting a little more than what you thought you were paying for??? This is not the first time I have kind of worried I might be a foot massage slut. Bingo - NOW I KNOW WHAT I COULD DO FOR ELEVEN HOURS AND FIVE MINUTES!!!! I could sit back and let someone rub my feet!!! OMG!! That is it!!! Screw tennis - just rub my feet!! I love that line from some movie or cartoon - can't remember where it comes from - "...come rub Sugar Mama's feet!" I LOVE that!! Everyone at my house just freaks and runs out of the room when I say it. Hate that. But, go to your local nail salon and for 15-20 minutes...heaven on earth. Now, I absolutely HATE the rest of it. The clipping and scraping and all that. JUST RUB MY FEET!!! Now that would be a wonderful 11 hrs & 5 minutes.

Adult Movie Heaven

I have died and gone to Adult Movie that I have your attention - not necessarily THAT kind of movie just that kind of Movie PLACE...for grown ups!!! I'm talking about Gold Class Cinemas. Wonderman had a great idea today when he got home from golfing in 102 degree heat...I thought he'd be jumping straight into the pool but NOOOOO. He wanted to go see a movie in AIR CONDITIONING. Since I'd been floatin all day anyway this seemed like a good idea to me too. Somehow we ended up at the Gold Class Cinemas and let me just tell you - worth EVERY penny more. I am talking top of the line movie experience. From our little wait in the lobby/nightclub to the amazing movie seats themselves!!! OMG talk about heaven - so comfy and they recline. And like pool service on vacay you have a little button you push and the cutest movie slaves come running to bring you whatever you want...Did I mention the wine and beer list??? You name it they have it cold and most on TAP and all you do is push a button and they come very quickly and quietly to wait on you!!!Now, I've already mentioned it was freakin hot outside today and let me tell you it was meatlocker cold in there worries!! Just push the button and you have a blanket and PILLOW!!! I KNOW!!! Too cool!!

The food looked amazing but I already had everything marinating at home for a big ole cookout so we just had the gourmet cheese popcorn and it wasn't that much more than regular movie popcorn but it was so delicious. Bout half way thru the movie all I could think about was the chocolate, carmel marshmellow popcorn so I just pushed that magic button and poof there was my movie slave with the best popcorn ever and another round of beers for the two happiest movie goers on the planet. Now, if you know me - I like to stay home and watch movies in my own home movie theater and yes, we have those amazing reclining seats and I can eat my favorite stinky popcorn (parmesean cheese and cumin with a touch of garlic salt) and I have beverages of the adult variety too. I just do not have the magic button and movie slaves bringing me stuff!!!Not to mention real food if I want it and let me tell you - I want it and can't wait to go back and see another movie and eat dinner there too!!! As a matter of fact Wonderman and I are planning to just vacay there instead of flying anywhere this summer!! Just think no security hassles or extra baggage fees!!! See ya at the movies!! Oh, and go see Toy Story - just take some tissues if you are sending someone off to college this summer!!

The Good Stuff

It has been awhile since I shared the good stuff...I don't even know where to begin. It is officially summertime. That is always GOOD STUFF. I love summer more than any kid and that is saying alot. Everyday feels like a vacation day to me. Silly cause I haven't had a real nine to five job in many years but there is just still something about summer that feels like the best days ever. I still do the stuff I do all year long but summer makes it better. So here are a few of my favorite things and this will be all over the place.

Glee - OMG...I am late to this party but I am catching up!! I own but have not watched the first season. Started watching the week of Madonna and haven't stopped since. What an amazing show!!! Forget American Idol...if you want to watch amazing kids sing and enjoy an even better story with great lines...then just try this show!!! Between this and Friday Night Lights - high school rocks!! Two totally different shows but still!! Great TV.

Also just watched The Good Guys....loved it!!Filmed in Dallas, Collin Hanks (Tom's son) and Bradley Whitford are hilarious!! And Drop Dead Diva is back on LOVE THAT!!

Just saw Killers and it was GREAT!! Go see this movie!! Screw the critics and while you are there go see Sex in the City Two!! I am shocked by all the bad press...Great chick flick!! And bite me all critics blasting this movie... It is SUPPOSED to be over the top. GET a LiFE we really want to see the girls wearing clothes from the Gap/Old NAVY and going to the beach in Florida????NEW FREAKIN JERSEY??? THAT would be a Situation. And no I refuse to watch that show. I am not even watching the Housewives ANYWHERE anymore. Why??? I just can't stand to watch women BASH each other. So not cool. It is time for Women/Girls EVERYWHERE to lift each other up and make the world a better place. Tearing each other down gets us no where. are my latest favs...Neutrogena Oil free Acne Wash (pink Grapefruit facial cleanser) OMG not sure whether to wash with it or drink it...smells amazing and it seems to be keeping those annoying little over 40 something breakouts at bay...pimples and wrinkles are so not fun...just a fact of life for us 40 somethings...

Garnier Skin Renew Anti Sun Damage - this promises to take care of sun damage and age spots. Will keep you posted. Love how it makes my skin look and feel and it has spf 28. Will let ya know next month how the age spots are fading.
As for the best EVER sunscreen that also keeps the shine away - Colore Science Sunforgettable SPF 30 Sun Protection is AWESOME. Best of all it is a powder. Use your regular products and then this and it will cut the shine and give you sunscreen protection too.

Hair - BioSilk - shampoo, conditioner and Therapy...Allure magazing rated it number one. It is great. Found a really good deal at Target. All three 12oz. products for 26.00 - crazy!! Just the Therapy 12 oz. was 41.00 at most retailers. Run to TARGET!! My hair looks and feels thicker and it is lasting for days...I liked the Morracan Oil products but had to wash my hair more frequently. If you are washing yours everyday - STOP!!! Or at least don't blow dry it everyday. Very damaging to your hair.

Food. Baby girl is rocking this at home - Pillsbury Cresent Rolls and Tollhouse Chocolate chips...just wrap them up together and bake and simple so good!!Not bikini friendly but who cares!!

Hobby that store!! If it is not on sale - wait a week and it will be!

Facebook...connecting with old friends is always a good thing!!! Cousins even better.

Puppies. Are truly a blessing when you have to say good by to the BEST GIRL DOG EVER...R.I.P. our sweet Lucy girl. Pets are more than just a part of the family. They are the glue that keeps us all together. If you don't have one for any reason...think about it again. Just do it. Your family will be closer for it. Can't explain it just know it. Trust me on this one - unconditional love is what the Good Stuff is all about.
