My oldest son turned 12 years old on Sunday. He decided that he wanted a chocolate cake with strawberry frosting. Now before I continue, you need to promise not to make fun of my beautiful cake...keep in mind that I am NOT a baker. Promise?
Okay, so whatever! If you want to see a Martha Stewart cake then go to her website alright.
That's not the point of this story anyway. We were getting ready to sing Happy Birthday when...the phone rang. Okay, stop everything...it's Grandma. The cake can wait!
After an indeterminable amount of time, Back to the Cake!
Oh, But Wait! Something is different. What could it be?
No Momma, It wasn't me.
Then who could it be?
Was it you?
Not me. I don't eat cake.
Oh yes, I should have known...
HE HE HE. It was me all along.
As my 6 foot tall neanderthal of a husband went lumbering through the house after this sweet little devlish face, my oldest son yelled, "It's okay. He just wanted a little taste. I'll eat that piece." We all just laughed. readmore »»

I have heard that sometimes pets look like their owners, but this chick really DOES look like her dog.

I was so sad when I heard that Patrick Swayze passed away. I will never forget the summer my sister and I watched Dirty Dancing every day, probably three times a day. We could recite that movie word for word. No matter what other roles I saw him in, he was always Johhny Castle to me.

I don't know how many of you have visited my website http://www.memoirsofafatchick.com or how many of you know my story, but I'm very excited to say that I got my first donation from a lovely lady named Mindy at Bluegrass Money Management, LLC. Thank You Mindy :)
You know there was a time in my life when I had just about given up on the human race. The town that I lived in was full of bitter, mean people and they almost took me down with them. I had a hard time making friends, because people were not at all friendly. This is a place where nice guys do finish last. I was born and raised there so it was hard for me to say goodbye, but I felt like I had to. I had to get out for the sake of my kids. So we moved and I don't regret it for a minute. People are so very nice here. I've made friends and my kids love it. I've gotta tell you since I joined the blogging world, it has really opened my eyes up to how generous people can be. It has renewed my faith in mankind.
Whether you help me out with a few bucks, respond to my silly posts, chat with me on twitter, or just read my blog and website....Thank You. Thank you for making me feel like I matter. Thank you for being there in some of my darkest hours. Just Thank You!

When I tell you this story you have to promise not to judge me.
Okay. So I have this fun little habit that I like to do and my husband tells me that it's creepy and someday I'll get arrested, but I don't think it's against the law. I have always been a people observer. I just find people interesting and I like to watch them. Well somewhere along the way I have developed this interesting thing that I do. Okay, Well...Alright! Well, you know at night when you are driving in your car and a house has it's lights on?...you know how if you look, you can see inside the house if their curtains are open? Well I like to look. Its fascinating to see what their house looks like on the inside. Is it Clean? Dirty? What kinds of decorations are hanging up? Do they have painted walls or wallpaper? (yes some people still use wallpaper).

I decided to go back to college and take a Literacy Add-On Program to enhance by Bachelor's degree. In order to qualify I needed to add a course so I decided to take a photography class. I have always loved taking pictures and I get so irritated with myself when I they do not come out. Well when I signed up they told me all I needed was a digital camera and I just so happen to hae one of those so I figured I was all set. Guess What? It's not the right kind. I need an SLR camera so after a little research I found the perfect one...
Isn't she beautiful? It's the Canon EOS Rebel XS18-55IS Kit...and it's all your for the low, low price of...wait for it....$549.88. Now if only I had that much money? readmore »»
