Sharing a New Blog & some giveaway love....

Hi everyone, hope your weekend has been wonderful so far... Ours has been very nice, my mama came home LATE Sat night... infact we got to her home at about 4:30 am on Sat from the airport...and just stayed over there...my poor mr wonderful...we went to pick her up at the airport then drove home from San Diego....and never once did he complain and me....lol ....yeah I guess that says it all doesn't it :) I complained that I was hungry, I wanted snacks..(the good kind..you know chocolate, potato chips, soda..I ate all these :) I was thristy...I had to tinkle...I know... and all that was just me...no kids lol I was supposed to be his Keep Me Awake buddy...uhmmm I did really good until the drive back...lets just say, I remember 2 bites of a chicken sandwich at 2 am and then he woke me up when we got to my mamas house :) yes...you can see how seriously I take my duties huh...well at least I remembered to remind him to drink his Rockstar :) See I am good for sumffin....Plus I blame this on my junk food induced coma ...lol yeah that works!

Sharing a funny here...I don't have a passport and neither does mr wonderful...I know, I know, we need one, but there is always something more pressing to use all that money on like groceries :) Well we had to pick my mama up at the border in San Diego, or is it San Isidro? See this is why he drives and not me :) anyways....We left her house at 9 pm Fri. night...but by the time we got there....it was very late at night, her flight came at almost 1 am in TJ ...it is very dark up there at that time and there are streets that when you go down them...you are suddenly in Mexico, soo as tired as I was. (did I mention I get car sick, so I close my eyes and kinda sleep it off :) well...each time I could feel us turning I would yell...OMStars...are we still in the U.S. ???? I think I he was wondering why I couldn't just go to sleep lol poor man..maybe that is why he reminded me I still had snacks in my bag..I am quiet when I eat...I take junk food seriously :)

So...my plans were to join in the great Silver Sunday party...but being gone as long as we were...I didn't get anything done that I wanted too, and in my defense my mama doesn't have internet :) ...so I am in for next weekend...I promised myself and well you know when you promise yourself...then it matters more ....right???? :)

Ok so I get home and I see that I have some new comments on my last post and I soo love when I get comments...it is like a wonderful friend came by to visit you and it makes you smile and feel all warm & tingly...doesn't it..or is that just me lol :) Well one of the comments was from the the lovely Keren of Free Pretty Things For You Hers is a new blog and I love it! She is so adorable and has such a great way of sharing some really pretty ideas and how to's I love when people do that...She is also having a giveaway to start her blog off but you guys have to hurry it ends Mon. January sorry to share it with you so late...but I just found out about it myself :)

Well I better go to sleep now, mr wonderful is going away for work next week and this will be my first birthday not spent with him since I was 19 :( So I want to spend as much time as I can with him tomorrow. I actually feel bad for my girls...They have Monday off and I will more than likely be moping all day :) Ha...now they get to see what it feels like to be around someone moody for a change :) Hey by the way how unfair is that...it is my birthday and the get it off lol just my luck! I Know I will be hearing...Mami....this & that all day long (at 19 &13 they sometimes act like 3&6 :) Well at least they will keep me from focusing on the fact that Chris won't be here.....

Well dear friends until next time,

Besos,

Rose~

Hi Rose, sweetie, I'm glad that you and your family is back home safe! I don't like to drive in the dark, especially when I don't know the area. It's not midnight at your place yet, so it's too early to wish you a happy Birthday. I'll be back for that later :). What a shame that your hubby won't be with you!

Hugs and love,
Julia

Happy Birthday Rose! I hope you have a wonderful day, even though Mr. Wonderful will be absent. (By the way, I was 42 when I married my wonderful hubby!)
I won't sing to you, because that would be cruel and unusual punishment...it is that bad! LOL!!!
Off to check out this new blog!!!
Love,
Lisa

Julia - "Vintage with Laces" said...

HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY Birthday, dear sweet Rose!!! Have a wonderful day filled with joy and lovely gifts! May your dreams and wishes come true! I'm so sorry that your hubby won't be with you today but I hope you still will have a great day! Maybe your daughters forget for some hours that they are teenagers, lol. I'm thankful for the time difference. Since I'm not a night owl I wouldn't have been able to stay up till midnight, lol.

Big hugs,
Julia

Happy Birthday Rose! Girl- you make me laugh so hard, I have gotten into a routine to read you first thing everyday because you either say something that I really needed to hear, or think about, or, I just need a giggle! I love the junk food/driving back & forth between CA & Mexico story. OMG, tears are running down my cheeks. Your a great story teller Rose. Amigo del dulce del feliz cumpleaños! Lisa
PS I don't speak spanish so forgive me if I just said, 'my pig likes to be happy' or some gibberish.

chicroses said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ROSE!!! I have enjoyed reading your experiences...you asked in one of you posts how we feel about getting older. When I was in my 40s I didnt think to much of it but now that Im in my 60s. Geesh its getting a little scarey. When I went to Beauty school at 18 all those old married ladies that were 25 were sooo old and I didnt want to hang with them..oh my gosh look at me now. You will have to go to my blog and check out my new maid..I will be back...sally

June said...

Happy birthday to you...happy birthday to you...happy bithday dear Rose, happy bithday to you!!!! In case you couldn't hear me singing, it was very good if I say so myself. All of Idaho could here it I'm sure.
Your posts always make me laugh and make me so happy to know such a sweetheart as you! I'm glad your mama is home safe and sound and that your man got you all home (with very little help from you)safely.
