Liming In St. Lucia

I learned a new term while in St. Lucia and plan on doing it regularly now that I'm back home in Charlotte.  LIMING.  It means "to chill", but the pre-requisite to Liming is an adult beverage in your hand otherwise you'll just be slacking-  not liming.   And you know me, I'm all about succeeding when I put my mind to something!  Speaking of, my new friends at Sandals Grande St. Lucian Spa & Beach Resort seemed to have mastered the art of making their guests seem completely spoiled yet right at home.  Beyond the wonderful employees who are genuinely happy to see you, to the ridiculous 5 star service, to the yummy all-you-can-drink adult beverages, the food at Sandals Grande St. Lucian is fabulous!  Read more...

A Dream Place For Families

I've been getting lots of calls and emails ever since I got back from Beaches Turks & Caicos Resort Villages & Spa, so I thought it was high time I fill everyone in on what an amazing place it is!  If you have children that vary in age this is the ideal place for you to vacation. Camp Sesame is an awesome place for the little ones to stay and play all day- which frees up mom and dad so they can have private time (hubba hubba).  Then there's the Xbox Lounge, Teen Trench Town for pool and ping-pong (no adults allowed please), Club Liquid for the older kids, a Waterpark with a swim up smoothie bar, and so much more you really have to go and see it to believe it.  I simply can't imagine any child of any age going to Beaches Turks & Caicos and uttering the words "I'm bored".  It would never happen!

What I learned in Italy

Who knew that spending 9 days in Italy eating, drinking and being merry could be so educational!  First of all, I was shocked to see how Italians eat considering none of them are obese.  They wake up in the morning and eat pastry with their coffee.  For lunch they enjoy a Panini or a Pizza (and I mean an entire 10" pizza!), dinner is a multi-course affair that involves bread, meat, pasta, lots of wine, dessert, and after dinner drinks- yet no one in Italy is obese!  It's got to be because of the fresh, homemade food with no preservatives.... either that, or their low stress lives.

I'm A Terrible Test Taker!

I took an MRI test on Friday and failed miserably.  Seriously.  If they handed out grades for that sort of thing I would have scored an F.  But it wasn't my fault, I was jinxed! Read more...

Chatting About Personal Grooming

I had the most bizarre conversation with a friend of mine the other day while at the movies.    Just as the previews were beginning she leaned in and said, "you're not going to believe what I did yesterday.  I got a Brazilian at the wax place down the road."  She was right, I didn't believe it.  I responded (using my 'Are you crazy?' voice)  "You let a total stranger see your entire business area just so you didn't have to shave for a few weeks?"  She replied, "Really it's no big deal.  It's just like going to the doctor."  To that I remarked, "W.T.H.?????"

Confessions Of A Girl Scout Cookie Eater

I'm ashamed to admit it, but I've been a cookie eating machine since the Girl Scouts brought out their new line of tasty treats on Valentine's Day.  I've plowed through 6 boxes!  But, it's not my fault.  I blame it all on the cute little kids in my neighborhood who came knocking on my door, as well as my neighbor Quanda who is a Cookie Mom.  For those of you who don't know what a Cookie Mom is, let me explain.  A Cookie Mom is the person in charge of distributing the boxes of cookies to all the other moms for their children to deliver.  Which means, the C.M. has hundreds of cases of cookies stored in her home or garage.  In my defense I only ordered 4 boxes from my neighbors kids, and I used the majority of two of the boxes during my Redneck Dinner Party when I crushed them up into a Chocolate Jell-O Pudding Pie, but then I caved in and called Quanda for more when I was sick a couple of weeks ago.

I Must Have Suffered A Head Injury!

I am the queen of bizarre dreams, to the point where I even contacted a dream analyst and paid to have interpretation done, so I'm wondering if there's something wrong with me or if bizarre dreaming is normal for others. Maybe I have normal dreams but just don't care to remember them, I don't know.

One of my most memorable dreams involved me being fixated on a zit on my chin. In my dream I was looking in the mirror and poking and prodding this tumor zit I'd named Tina. Then, finally, I popped it and my face unraveled! 
 
The dream analyst woman said that I was considering change in my life but procrastinating. Read more...
