ths same day the kid at starbucks called me ma’am, i had to explain to my that i knew who the ramones are – she has a clock in her room. i went on to tell her i saw the ramones at the hollywood palladium – when joey ramone was alive(duh). i should have kept my mouth shut. it was one of those times…the more i talked, the more i should have been quiet.
talk about feeling old!


God – my relationship with…an understanding of a commitment. learning that when i ask, i have to accept the answer (yes, no, maybe so). when i say i will, i better be ready to do.

my husband – together discovering a “whole nudda level” of love. faith in one another.

children – over abundance of love. new found patience and understanding. lots of pure joy!

family / friends – comforting, uplifting, forgiving!…

the opportunities that i have “to do work son”; not my mine, but His.

i’ve always been drawn to the color black.  i think there is something “clean” about it.  there is no arguing with it – it just is.  simple.  i think it matches every thing and every color.  it makes a statement on its own or adds a punch of finality.  even before chanel re-vamped it – yes, they single handedly caused the black revolution – black was my color.  if black was a color and i had to choose a color, i would choose black.  i like red and green (seperately), turquoise, but they come and go – black is a classic.

but black lipstick?!  really?  it hit the runway(s) way back in february!  ysl, zac posen.  even lancome! has launched a black lipstick. 



do you know how white your teeth have to be in order to pull this off?  they have to be translucent like regis’.  not to mention the up-keep in making sure your lips aren’t chapped, smugged and you better have beautifully balanced lips. 

we are being hit with the ads in the mags now, actually during the fall season.  i couldn’t believe it then and i can’t believe it now.

for all you non-goth people, go with a dark berry, cranberry is hot and mauve, mauve it so in this season!


p.s. if you see me wearing black lipstick, smack me!

as a mother of four children, 2 dogs, a cat, a fish and a husband, some days i can hardly wait for bedtime.  i look at the clock, its only 4:30 and i can’t believe there are 4 more hours until bedtime!  the kids are bouncin off the walls, the dogs trailing the kids or trying to befriend the cat, dinner needs to be made – you get the picture. 

this weekend turned out to be unusually quiet. 2 of the 4 children were gone, leaving the 7 and 3.5 year olds.  the kids were getting along so well i found myself verbalizing, “so this is what it would like if we had just 2 kids.  it’s almost too quiet.”

i am thankful for my crew; no matter how tired or overwhelmed i may feel some days.
