To be honest I have known my bff since birth. My mom and her mom went to high school together so we just grew up together. We went to grade school and high school together and we are still partners in crime ! In high school I had my own private phone line and when I would get grounded my parents would take my phone from me. My bestie would always come to the rescue and bring me in a phone so i can plug it in my wall and continue chatting with friends until the wee hours of the night. That was until her mom realized one of her phones were missing from the house and called my mom ! She is just so sweet and I can honestly say that she has been there for me through thick and thin. She came to celebrate with me for my 29th birthday last year in Sin City she was one of the ones that said, "screw the economy lets go to Sin City " ! I love her and we will be besties when we are rolling our wheelchairs down a nursing home hall way..haha ! P.S She does not like this picture and she does read my blog from time to time and when she see's this she will hurt me..but I like this picture she is totally channeling her inner diva/model !

Okay so I just have too much going on right now and things are just plain annoying !
- I am still trying to book my fabulous birthday trip with my lovely boyfriend. We found a travel agent to work with but she is hard to get in touch with so it has been crazy trying to get with her schedule and ours to.
- I am starting to think about my holiday cards and this year I think I am going to do a recipe card...super cute ! The problem is I don't cook and I don't enjoy it but I was thinking about chocolate covered pretzels or sugar coated nuts ?? Yeah I know it isn't really anything to that but it's a start for a non-cooker and I may even send them with my recipe card.
- Most of my friends have children so it is hard to catch up with them and just hang out and chill. I understand that children take up lots of time but how hard is it to call a "friend" and just say hi ?? I don't get it and why is it always that I am invited to a kid party every other weekend...yes seriously ! I mean come on I do HAVE A LIFE !!
All these things combined are annoying me well not so much the holiday cards but the kid parties and the booking of my well deserved long awaited vacation is just driving me nuts !! Hopefully by the end of the week I will have my vacation booked and I will let you all know where we have decided to go !

She ended up having fun with her friends that weekend and he did end up e-mailing her the itinerary on Monday and she said she felt a little stupid. He ended up flying her out last weekend to see him and he got injured again at the game. She said she feels like it's her because it seems like every time she goes to one of his games he gets injured. He will be sitting out for about 3 weeks. In the meantime she is back to work and her normal day to day routine and while she was over my house we were being creative making cards and she got a text message from him. All of a sudden she was like listen to this... and I said, " okay. "
She read the text and it said what would you say if I asked you to marry me and be my wife ? She texts him back and said you can do whatever you want to do if you put your mind to it.
He texts her back and said that is not what I asked you, so she texts him back and said well I thought you were kidding because you texts me that but of course I would be your wife, I am in this forever. He texts her back and simply said, "okay "
She knows she isn't engaged but I told her he wanted to know if she would say yes if he asked her to marry him. She said, " do you think so. " I said, " yes of course ! " We will see if the next time she sees him she will be engaged !!

What's been keeping me going is planning the big three to the O birthday celebration with my lovely boyfriend, which has been keeping my mind off of his xoxo's ! (*wink ) I told you guys I would keep you updated so we finally narrowed it down to Puerto Rico or Riviera Maya. I have done lots of research on Puerto Rico and I need to start researching Mexico more seeing that we are going to be booking our trip soon. There is pros and cons to both locations. I know the food looks so yummy in San Juan, but I am thinking the weather will be better in Mexico in November. I just want the weather to be perfect ! It just has to be fabulous just because you only turn 30 once ! Besides having the L.D blues I am having to deal with the stress of where to go. I can't complain seeing that's the only thing I have to stress about, so I need to get out of this L.D funk and be grateful I have this problem..haha ! I will keep you all posted on when we finally decide where we are going !

She said she would love to get an ankh tattoo and spontaneously said I want to get the tattoo today !! I said, "for real " ? She said, "yes" and so off we went to the tattoo parlor ! I must say I was very nervous this was the first time I was going to be witnessing someone getting inked before my eyes.
We get there and she is very calm as she sits in the chair and doesn't even flinch her eyes, I was very shocked !! I thought she was going to freak out but she didn't. Little did I know this was her 5'th tattoo !!
She took it like a champ and the tattoo came out really nice !! Pat/Duph (same person) did a great job and he says he can be found on myspace !

My friend and I went downtown Atlanta today for dinner and decided to go to the Vortex ! I ate at this restaurant a few years back and the food was okay, but I gave them another chance today. We walked in and they said the wait would be about 15 minutes or so and we said that was fine. They called my name fairly quick and as we walked up the lady that I am assuming was the manager said "follow me". She took us upstairs and outside and didn't even ask us if we wanted to be seated outside. When it's hot outside it's best to ask your customers if they would like to be seated inside or outside. That was the first strike against the Vortex.
The menu was plain boring ! They basically just had a bunch of different hamburgers on the menu and they randomly serve breakfast all day which just consists of omelets. In the middle of the menu they have a set of "Vortex Rules" very random. It said something about a no whining rule and it went on to say please do not whine if your neighbor is to loud or drunk and if you feel like you need to control your environment at all times then you need to stay home. Second strike.
The icing on the cake was when we were served our nasty cheeseburgers which tasted like charcoal all of sudden over the intercom we hear an angry voice. I am assuming it was the lady that seated us and she said " We all know Michael Jackson is gone but by playing his music over and over again it will not bring him back, so PLEASE stop playing his music on our jukebox." My friend and I looked at each other and said " WOW " ! That was strike three for me ! Plus on top of all that the service sucked !
You never know who is sitting in your restaurant so you should always have good service and be polite and that should be an automatic !

This is a true story of a friend of mine and I will call her "Pinky".This all started my free therapy sessions and all a little over 6 yrs ago when I met Pinky. She was just an innocent or at least I thought teenager at the time. Over the years Pinky's true personality came out. She used to model and she has been an extra in some of the big box office movies and she has also been in music videos. She is a pretty girl and she knows that. You can't tell Pinky anything. She seems to attract " celebrities " as her boy toys. She has dated, basketball players,football players and entertainment stars.
Her recent boyfriend or boy toy whatever you want to call him is a football player for the NFL. I don't want to say the team but he is a really nice kid. She has brought him over to meet me a few times. Young kid just starting out and she loves herself some of him. She actually met him when she was dating someone else in the entertainment industry. The one she was dating previous to meeting the NFL star was really putting her through it, so she gave the NFL star a run for his money. She was tired of being dogged out and wants to be treated with the respect she thinks she deserves. I guess that was a good move for her because he said to her on several occasions he likes the challenge. He said he was tired of dating girls that did whatever he wanted them to do.
Dating someone in the spot light can be tough but it has it's perks ! He flies her out to see him and cooks breakfast in bed for her and really treats her nice, but she is still suspicious. As a matter she just went to see him this past weekend. She got to go to his game and he was injured during the game so that put a damper in there plans to party ! She stayed by his side and cleaned out around his condo and was just there for him. He promised her that he would fly her out to see him this weekend and they would go to Atlantic City and stay at the Trump Towers. However here it is Friday the day she would be leaving right after work and he keeps saying to her that he doesn't know what he is doing yet. She seems to think he is waiting around the book the ticket last minute because he has other plans that don't involve her. I said " oh Pinky don't jump to conclusions he may have a surprise for you ! " She wasn't going for that. What do you all think ? Do you think he has something else going on ? I will keep you all posted on what ends up happening.
