Every Race Car Driver's Must Have......

FAST racing gloves! Also known as, your winter gloves with flames on them which are way too big for your hands so there are tons of extra breathing room at the finger tips causing mom to repeatedly put them back on. And of course, you can't forget your aerodynamic Chevy's sombrero....OLE!!!!

And wait till you check out his RIDE!!!

I'm about as liberal as they come and during the last presidential election I was insanely irritated by the entire McCain family and their conservative views. The election came and went and a new chapter was written in the history books. Surprisingly, as time passed, a young republican named Megan McCain grew on me with some of her social views regarding gay rights but imagine my surprise when I saw this today.

Seriously, that is Cindy McCain! She contacted the NOH8 campaign and asked to be a  model for their message. To say I was surprised was an understatement! A couple thoughts rolled around in this bouncy house I call a brain. One, I would never ever have thought Cindy McCain would volunteer to do this considering her hubby is not a gay marriage supporter and second, who's that hottie!!! Who would have thought the updo queen over there ------>

could look like the sexpot up there.

So a big wohooo to two public republican women for speaking their minds, I applaud you. And even though John McCain is still not a supporter of equal gay rights a small part of me wants to give him props for marrying  and raising  strong women who speak their minds.

Breaking News.....

Have you heard? I'm going to be a contestant on Survivor.....SUPAH's SURVIVOR that is! The secret lottery drawing started a couple days ago and now that the results have been posted on SUPAH's blog I can spill the beans over here as well.

My lucky character for SUPAH's SURVIVOR is......


Through the magic of bloggy land I get to turn into a totally HOT black man. Not bad, eh! So let's hope he stays healthy, wins lots of challeges, and doesn't piss anyone off.
The SUPAH SURVIVOR gift basket is at stake!

Some Chocolate Lovin'

I won't go into the orgasmic response (just kidding, or am I) that these lil' crack cups gave me, but let's just say they are DELISH! Now if I was a  "dieting Debbie" I would say that they are only 60 calories, sugar free and help you crave those monthly daily chocolate needs but I'm gonna keep it real and and tell you to multiply that by 2 or 3 because you can't just eat one serving. Seriously, why do you think they make them in 6 packs ladies?

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday

Welcome to an almost Wordless Wednesday and because I'm feeling slightly creative today, you get a haiku with it. I know, I'm so freaking generous!

Santa brought a red scooter,
Should be getting in jammies,
Look where we found him.

Go check out 5 Minutes for Mom and 7 Clown Circus for more Wordless Wednesdays.

I ♥ Faces - Best Face Photo

I have admired the blog, I ♥ Faces, for quite a while now. They accept and encourage photos from all levels of talent, beginner to professional. I never entered any of my photos before since I think they are great for family memories but void of actual talent but I am going to push myself  to contribute this year, talent or no talent at all. I have an AMAZING camera and I want to learn how to use all the neat features (since we paid for them and all.) This weeks picture had to be a close up on faces taken in December or January so without further or do here is my first entry to I ♥ Faces .

So I definetely ♥ this face! This is Big Man after giving Little Man a bath.....or maybe it's the other way around by the looks of it?!

Buckle up and keep your hands in the ride at all times....

Can I just say that I have had a major blogger's block! Christmas came and I took a break to be with family and I just can't get motivated to regularly post. To the very few that I actually read this, sorry, I suck!  :(

Life is going to be a roller coaster in the next few weeks so everyone hold onto your hats cause it could get bumpy. We've got Olympics/ Vacation for 2 weeks, which I know will be a blast but a lot of detailed planning has to go into this so I'm a bit stressed. When we came up with the idea to buy the tickets we had NO idea the amount of intricate details that would have to go into this. You are on the Olympic Committee's  staggered timeline so you buy your tickets when they say you can, book your hotel, ferries, bus transportation to the events on a crazy schedule. There is no parking at any event so you have to take public transportation to the Vancouver events or take special 3 hr charter buses up to Whistler for the skiing events. On a positive note... at least all the info is in English! I can't imagine coming from a country that speaks another language and trying to figure out how to get here, there and out to the boonies on public transportation....that would SUCK!

Oh yeah, and I'm turning the dirty 30 while we're up there!!!! So far, the idea doesn't really bother me. I think it's the fact that I have so much going on in the next month or so that I don't have time to dwell about it. Add to that that I have a bunch of friends that are between 30-35 and they show me everyday that they are still fun, young, outgoing and hip mamas! You girls make 30 look cool!  If you would have asked me a few years ago about being 30 I would have FREAKED, but now I am embracing it with open arms  Even though they probably have no idea what they've done, they have made the transition to 30 seem easy. Thank you ladies, you guys are AWESOME!

So we've climbed the first hill and made our descent when another mountainous climb arises. When we return we're officially turning in my immigration paperwork for permanent residency to Canada. I'm nervous but excited, eager to start another chapter but sad about closing the current one. So many mixed feelings go into that process and I hope to share those along the ride. And I'm sure there will be some drama and comedic relief as I chronicle the goings on of two first time homeowners searching for a house. I'm picky and I'm not going to settle and I have this feeling I will be "that client" you know, the annoying one that  the realtor is going to secretly despise. She'll avoid our calls and comment to all her coworkers on how many houses she has shown us with no offers. Yep, that'll be me! :)

Sound the Alarms!

Of all the gifts this little boy received for Christmas and trust me, there were way too many, his favorite item of all was a plastic red hat he got from the firemen at Safeway.

Sometimes it's the simple things in life that are the best!
