Another pic from Germany and yes that's a dirndl I’m wearing. We go all out, the guys wear lederhosen too. This is Marcus. He's a lot of fun, and he's a great friend to have around when you're going to Oktoberfest. He knew lots of people, and got us into tents without worry; even the fancy tent where celebrities post up and drink beer. Although those weren't much different than the Hofbrauhaus or the Armbrustschutzen tents, other than the people were much cleaner and the tent had nicer hops hanging from the ceiling. It’s such a good time. What they don’t tell you though, that you might expect, is that there are tents set up for the alcoholics, with medics and nurses there to help rehydrate and keep folks that get out of hand (and that’s the majority of everyone) alive. I can literally taste the cold beer, it’s getting that close.

Boyfriend and I went to Germany in 2007 to visit some friends (das germans) and do hoodrat things at Oktoberfest. It was a lot of fun but I did get a little sick on the trip, and it wasn't from the beer! It was definitely good times, and I look forward to going back this year.
p.s. This is me with dark hair, what do you think?

It's Friday, and I'm looking forward to the weekend, we have some quality girl time coming my way, and a baby shower on Sunday for my beloved friend. These are our fish by the way. Closest thing we have to children I guess :P...far too many to name here before you'll be bored, but it's a pretty cool thing to have fish in our dining room. They are so peaceful and low-maintenance. Ideal pet fo' sho. The jungle you see next to the tank is a bamboo tree that we inherited, it's a little big but the fish tank was lonely on the wall by itself.
Hmm...I hope I can find time to head to the beach this weekend, speaking of fish.... :) ciao!

I know, I'm a greedy bitch that way.

We went to Fantasy Fest a few years ago and these were one of our costumes....Argghhh!
If you've never been to this debaucherous Key West occasion, and you enjoy nakedness, beer, freaks, and train wrecks, I highly recommend it.

G and I spent Saturday evening in the kitchen. How cute is she in that apron? The boys enjoyed watching a UFC fight that was on, while we made healthy lasagna rolls and salad and garlic bread. We ended up sleeping overnight since we had quite a few glasses of wine. It's fun to do hoodrat things with our friends!

- Wake up, brush teeth, wash face/shower (if not done the night before), moisturize...dig through closet, try on pants/skirt/dress/whatever, take it all off because it doesn't look right or squeezes your icky thighs in the wrong place, do this 3-5 times.
- Fix hair, change hair because it looks crappy, yell at hair because it's not doing what you want, look for appendages to put in hair to cover up wrong curls/2 day hair grease/bad cowlick/etc...
- Quickly apply make-up because now you're running late (stupid poo-poo thighs in those pants, and you should have washed your hair last night, dammit) smudge mascara all over eye, run upstairs for eye make-up remover, take off all mascara. Repeat. Do the same with eye liner, liquid mess all over face, smudge and leave the house with what looks like bruises all over cheeks.
- Throw shoes on. Wrong shoes. Wrong pants, pants too short for those shoes. Change pants again. Wrong shoes again. Put on first pair of shoes. Repeat.
What's your morning routine? Is it anything like mine?

Boyfriend also wants to get a Vespa. A part of me kind of wants him to get one - because I think he will look hilarious/cute/ridiculous on it, however; another part of me is terrified of him driving around on one of those things.
What do you think?

Later in the evening we took a walk over to the wine store and bought a couple of bottles of red. I spent a quick minute in the kitchen to recreate a recipe I'd been craving since San Francisco. A simple pasta dish, mine with a healthy spin. I will share because it's easy and awesome.

G and I spent the day on Saturday shopping to graduate her wardrobe to the next "lady" stage. We had the best time hanging out, I really enjoyed every minute of it.
Later, we ended up creating this awesome french bread pizza recipe that everyone raved about.
It was made of homemade marina sauce, mozzarella, fresh basil from our garden, beefsteak tomato slices, a little sea salt and cracked black pepper, and of course garlic to taste. Next time, I will take pictures and post...
Oh, and have you ever tried goat cheese with rosemary? I forget the name of the cheese exactly but let me tell you, it was literally crack! So, look for a goat cheese with rosemary on the outside of it. Trust me.
In the end, the group all skeddaddled around the same time, and our house was nice and clean despite the amount of beer that was consumed and the amount of people that were there. All in all, a nice, successful evening, and a perfect end to a great day.

The Marlins baseball game was AMAZING! Boyfriend and I got tickets from a vendor at the last minute, and ended up getting to sit in the batters box next to the opposing teams dug-out. It was so cool. We sat next to the security guard named Eddie, he knew everyone! It was like a little family in these seats, everyone shouting at each other and bantering. Eddie even got me an official MLB baseball, so sweet!

We have WAY too much to do. It's ridiculous. We constantly torture ourselves with masks, plucking, micro blah blah blah, "gentle" exfoliating, super duper wrinkle be gone procedures, and none of these really make that much of a difference on their own.
In fact, I heard it's actually necessary to do all of these things simultaneously, while getting our daily cardio, cooking a healthy dinner, cleaning the house, and taking the heavy side of procreating. Oh, and p.s., we'll get our monthly hormone surge during all of this too.

After a Saturday spent at L's beautiful baby shower, watching her open cute presents, eating her delicious tastings, and all of the awww's and sooo cute's you can take in for one day, I have decided that I would like to procreate with friends. Not that you can always plan these things, but if given the opportunity, I sure would like to!
My friends J&J&L are all preggers right now, and it is absolutely breathtaking and heartwarming to be around these grateful mommies and their cute smiles and their funny stories about experiences I don't know how to relate to. But that's just it, I don't know how to relate. And all of these things, albeit beautiful and magical...are overwhelming, terrifying, and real, people. Thank goodness they have eachother. Because no matter how many times your mom or your sister did it, it wasn't now. For example, while shaving your ahem may have been overlooked in the 80's, I would like to know what I need to do now, in 2009, in order to keep these areas maintained, even though I can't see past my gigantic child-bearing tummy.
So, when boyfriend and I are ready to take the plunge, I hope it is alongside some of my most trusted girlfriends. Hey, just because I look really cute with a baby, doesn't mean I know what the hell I'm doing yet.

It has been raining here non-stop since I left and went to San Francisco...I'm talking weeks people. Here's hoping the sun will come out for all of us soon, and I'll get to see The Sounds play next time they're in town.

In retrospect, I probably wasn't selected because of my role working for the corporate office of a company that owns and operates prisons throughout the world (we each had to state our profession aloud to the group). However; I can't help but think that those shifty characters on the defendant's team were watching the expressions and behaviorisms of the people that would be dictating the next 10-20 years of this guy's life.
I would love to know what an attorney's point of view is on this.
