Happy Monday & Halloween to everyone!
How are you all doing this Halloween day? I am doing pretty good although the weekend was a tad rough—between the snow and ice and my Redskins playing so POORLY it was just NOT good LOL. I cannot even believe that we had snow before Halloween here in Virginia—that NEVER happens, EVER and it DISGUSTS me! Seriously? What the heck is up with this weather, I cannot stand the cold & don’t care if I ever see snow again, never ever and whoever likes it---well I’m sorry but there “might” be something seriously wrong with you LOL! I can’t even remember the last time it snowed BEFORE Thanksgiving for crying out loud—Mother Nature better get her act together or ELSE!!
So let’s start off this post with some good stuff’s ok? LOL! First I want to REVIEW the AWESOME TIME AT HAD AT LUKE BRYAN’s concert Friday night! OMG I have NEVER come so close to having a heart-attack in my life. My mom, me and Alexa traveled 3.5 hours south to Salem, VA to go see him (hell I would travel 15 hours to see him hee hee)! It was the best concert I’ve been to all year (sorry Sugarland but Luke is hotter)—it was terrific. Lee Brice, Josh Thompson & Matt Mason (Matt has an awesome voice, he's gonna be big--see his song here) all opened for him and they were really good especially Lee Brice who I really like (see his newest song here). But of course the main attraction (for me & Alexa anyway) was Mrrrrrrrrrrr Luuuuuuuuuuuuuuukkkkee BRyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyan!! Whoohooo! Oh girls he is even HOTTER in person, 6’3 feet of blue-jean hotness for real and the prettiest eyes you’ve ever seen and the boy CAN SING!!! I don’t know if I should ever be that close to him again, it was almost too much for me, seriously I was close to hyperventilating And he looked RIGHT AT ME quite a few times while he was singing—Alexa says “OMG Mom he’s singing to youuuuuuu!”—yep ladies it was enuff for this girl to almost pee her pants or die. It was a REAL good thing hubby wasn’t there cuz he might NOT have enjoyed it veeery much hee hee. But seriously he can sing and put on a darn good show—I will be checking his schedule and going again, and again and again. So please enjoy the slideshow below to see some major cuteness and if you don’t know who he is (GASP, what is wrong with you….check his song, my fave here).

San Francisco!! Oh boy did I enjoy my trip to the West Coast, the warm weather and great sites! I spent the whole day in San Francisco with my pal Patricia of The Paper Temptress. We parked (yes I drove, yikes) at Pier 39 and had lunch in a great restaurant overlooking the Bay and Alcatraz, I was giddy to see it up close. The next trip I will definitely do the tour but it was sold out when we arrived (boo hoo). Then we did the Hop-On-Hop-Off bus tour of the city which I HIGHLY recommend because I didn’t want to drive thru the city and not get to see anything KWIM. We had a fabulous guy guide who was singing and just plain fun and he took me to the BRIDGE—yes the beautiful Golden Gate Bridge. Its been on my bucket list for a long time. Why is it so special to me? Well if you know my story you know that I NEVER thought I’d get to travel much anywhere so to travel to the West Coast and see such an iconic site was overwhelming for me, I was absolutely giddy and so thrilled to see it. A beautiful site indeed! We hopped off for a bit to walk thru the fabulous Golden Gate Park and thru the Japanese Tea Gardens there—stunning and so zen. Then we traveled thru Haight-Asbury (home of the hippies and pot stores LOL) and I won’t say much about the “dead person” on the sidewalk, I kid you not, ucky! Then onto the Painted Lady homes and to see other sites. We sat at the top of the double decker bus and let’s just say that fog had rolled in & I was FREEZING LOL—but it was so worth it. I did lots of fun touristy stuff and Patricia and I had the best time laughing and talking our way thru the city. I definitely plan on going back!!

Travel Stories? Yeah I’ll share a funny one with you that might give you a great chuckle today if you need it. You know that I attract FREAKS right, I kid you not they love me and I attract them like metal to a darn magnet—not sure how to turn off my magnetic field yet LOL. My first flight was from Washington, DC to Denver at 6 am so I was looking forward to the 4 hour flight so I could SLEEP. I was 12th person on the plane, got my window seat and got my blankie & pillow all ready to go. I see this tiny, petite lady come down the aisle and she sits in the middle seat. I’m like “YESSS” finally a small person next to me that won’t be loud or odd. Ha HA ha ha ha—NOTTT! Let me tell you she lived LARGE people---like she was 400 lbs or something. Everyone had their lights off, plane lights were off cuz its 6 am and everyone WANTED TO SLEEEEEEEPPPPPP, duh! Well not her, no way---she had her light on and about 20 mins into the flight and into my SLEEP she taps me to ask me if I would mind turning MY LIGHT on for her. Ummmmm NOOO NOOO NOOO and she had the nerve to be nasty and offended---REALLY? Really—you are offended because I won’t turn MY light on for YOU because I MIGHT want to sleep? Really? So she huffs and turns her light off and I’m like “okay” all is good right? Yeahhhhh, NO! She turned her darn light on and off about 10 times over the course of an hour AND kept elbowing me, kicking me and then to TOP IT ALL OFF she has HER legs/feet under my seat in front of ME. Have you EVER??? And she decided it was an excellent time to do crossword puzzles with a PENCIL, and ERASE REGULARLY so I was covered in eraser dust from head to toe, eeeewww. But the last straw was when I was in our 2nd hour sleeping and she HITS me in my face/head with her LARGE PURSE—can you even believe it??? I was PISSED (excuse my french but I was actually beyond pissed at this point—do NOT mess with me when I am sleeping or I will eat you alive)!! I sat up quickly, threw my stuff down and yelled ‘What in the hell is wrong with you?” to the delight of the people behind me and the rest of the plane cuz I guess I was a “tad” LOUD LOL! I told her she was rude and for such a SMALL PERSON she sure LIVED LARGE and that I would APPRECIATE IT if she kept to her own space and to STAY THE HELL OUT OF MINE!!! The stewardess of course came running over and I literally said “if she touches me in any way or bugs me or even looks at me wrong again, I will punch her and I’m not kidding!” And I guess I looked either SCARY enuff or CRAZY enuff that they believed me because she told the lady to please NOT bother others on the plane and to keep to herself. Well that lady never made another noise or movement the rest of the flight cuz I believe that I had SKEEEERED the poo-poo outta her! I’m not a mean or vicious person but I am sooooo sick of people not minding other’s personal space—it’s a HUGE pet peeve of mine. Do not come into my space bubble and I won’t come into yours—its just plain RUDE and I have NO PROBLEM telling someone so LOL! I made sure on the 2nd flight that she didn’t sit near me again but I’m sure she was trying to stay away from me too---I think she thought I was looney but I don’t care The guy on the aisle told me he hadn’t laughed that much in ages and was glad I said something cuz she was bothering the poo out of him too LOL! Geez-manezz people!! Anywho the 2nd flight was MUCH better!
Ok—that’s enuff outta me today—I’ll share another funny travel story with you this week. Cuz’ I got a few of them hee hee! Have a fabulous day and hope its sunny in your neck of the woods!
