Letters of Intent #6


As usual on Fridays, I'm linking up with Foursons for Letters of Intent.  Check out the other letters and write one of your own!

Dear USA Network, 
I know you have to make movies fit into the alloted time you have but do you really have to cut the funny parts out?  Like when Nick Cage sticks his hand in between the rocks in National Treasure 2: Book of Secrets and pretends like something eats him?  That's a good part!  Ugh.
Stop Cutting Out the Good Parts

Dear People Who Take Care of My Child,
When I tell you that she doesn't sweat and it's very dangerous for her to overheat, please believe me.  I'm not an over-protective, hypochondriac mom who is just trying to give you a hard time.  I mean, really... Don't make me pull the 'she will die' card on you because I really hate to do that.  
Thanks for paying attention,

Dear World,
Randi is not old.  She is not closer to 40 than 50 (Though she is closer to 50 than I am.  I'm just speaking the truth, Randi.).  She does not have one foot in the grave and she's not interested in the sexy mature singles with whom would like to pair her.  She is, however, an awesome person, amazing mom, and super friend.  Even if she does wear Gloria Vanderbilt jeans.   

Dear Morning Run,
Why are you so elusive? Always just a little out of reach, I miss you each morning.  One day we will have our time in the sun.  One day.
Soon-to-be Running Princess

Wordless Wednesday 1

I'm linking up to 5 Minutes For Mom's Wordless Wednesday.
Curious?  Mom Bloggers (and Dad Bloggers too!) post a photo on your site, link up and find others… Wordless Wednesday is tons of fun. (And I know it says “wordless” but I just can’t bear to not write anything! If I had created it, I probably would have named it something different! LOL)
One of my favorite pictures of The Monkey.  
An oldie (Summer '10) but a goodie, no?

Amazing Giveaways!

Thanks to Meagan over at Fairly Fabulous, I had a great time at the Ultimate Blog Party '11 and made some new bloggy friends.  One of those new bloggers is Anne at Giveaway Corner [great blog title, huh?].  Her plan for the blog is to do a giveaway every single weekday.  WOW!    She is kicking off her blog with a most awesome giveaway that's going on right now and I know all of my readers will want to enter it.  Like now.
Why is that, you ask?  Because she's giving away a $100 Visa gift card every day from Tuesday, April 12 through Friday, April 15.  [See, you totally want to enter now, don't you?]

There's one more thing.  When you enter the contest using Anne's form (which is so nice because you don't have to enter multiple comments for multiple entries ~ just check the appropriate boxes on the form! love it!), you'll be asked 'Who referred you?.'  The appropriate answer in that box is "Sam Z."  If I have the most referrals at the end of the day on Tuesday, April 19, I will win a $20 Amazon gift card.  If I win the contest, YOU will get to participate in a giveaway right here at The Answers are Simple!  See: it's a win-win!

Let me know if you enter so I can be excited for you when you win!

It's Friday~Let's Par-tay!

Ultimate Blog Party 2011

Who's had a long week?  
Me, me, me, ME!
Who's with me?

This was one of those weeks that seemed like it would never end.  It was Spring Break for us and that may have had something to do with it.  Don't get me wrong ~ it's wasn't a bad week, it was just really long.  {Today was a very different, very frazzled story, but the rest of the week was fun!}

In honor of all four members of our family making it to the end of the week AND to Daddy coming home from work before 8pm the first time this week AND the fact that the dinner that will be on our table was previously in a frozen form {and may or may not have pepperoni on it...}, I'm FINALLY attending the Ultimate Blog Party!

Seriously, my most awesome friend Meagan over at Fairly Fabulous has been reminding me this week to link up with UBP'11.  And every day has started too early and ended too late to get 5 minutes for mom {har har har}.  But here I am, adult beverage in hand {hey, I'm east coast... it's not just after 5pm, it's after 6pm!}, ready to blog and PARTY!!

Enough about me.  Here's a little about me blog:
* I'm a mom, a wife, a daughter, a sister, a friend
* Living in my home are: My husband, Prince Charming
My three year old daughter, Monkey
 and my mom, Ama
* I live in the heart of the Bible Belt, though I'm not a Thumper myself
* My town has been on Oprah 
* I'm a REAL Housewife
* I have a shoe problem
* I'm madly in love with Dr. Drew.  
* He may or may not know about the secret relationship we're having in my mind.  
* I drank the Pink Kool-aid and became a Mary Kay consultant.  
Laugh now, but I'll be the one laughing when I'm driving around town in my Pink Caddilac. 
(On a side note, it's a fabulous career that enables me to be a SAHM and I love our products.  
I poke fun at myself, not at the company.)

I know you can't stay long because you're 'hopping,' but if you want to see one post that is pretty representative of my blog, read this one: Letters of Intent 3/17

Follow along, leave a message and enjoy your Friday Hop!

A Quiet Evening

I'm not blogging tonight because I'm choosing not to blog.  My mind is swirling with many thoughts and I think this is an instance when silence is better than words.  Until these thoughts are sorted out.... good night.
