Glad it's history

This week has been the worst I have had in such a very long time. A daughter who has been so sick that she has had to have a CT scan, strep tests and yet we still don't know what is wrong. I've been having to deal with a stepmonster who can't seem to understand that I AM THE MOTHER!!! I keep telling myself that it isn't too much longer and I will never have to deal with that bitch again. My daughter and I are living for that day when we can tell that cow to go to hell.

Work has me stressed but nothing new with the reasons. Just need to put the rhino hide on and focus on what matters to me the most. My family, my friends and the plans I have for this year. Twilight Girls Weekend and the cruise. It's what is keeping me from going totally mad. As long as I keep myself busy I won't think about how thoroughly disgusted I am at certain people.

I do need something to fill up the fall and from what I've heard "Breaking Dawn" is scheduled to start filming in October. One of my dear cruise friends wants to come out here and "set stalk" so who am I to say no? :) Not sure where they are filming yet. Really hoping they bring it back to the states and film in St. Helens again. Would be perfect for a weekend drive. I know I'm dreaming and possibly living in a fantasy but filming begins after the cruise and since we are going to be partying with Mike and Alex they will remember us and bring us on the set. You never know. It could happen!!! It's a long shot but I'll hold onto that fantasy for awhile. LOL

I am not as young as I used to be

Holy crow I'm exhausted!!! Everything about yesterday was worth it other than the drive home. The weather sucked!!! Seriously. I stopped in North Bend for gas and something to keep me awake and it was raining to beat the band. By the time I got to Ellensburg my knuckles were white and I could barely move my fingers because they were gripping the steering wheel so tightly. Rain mixed with snow and fierce winds made for an ugly drive.

I went to Seattle yesterday to meet Linda and Bobbi. They are organizing the Twilight Cruise I'm going on in August. Have I mentioned I'm going on a Twilight themed cruise? ;) I am. You should check it out:

Met up with Linda and Bobbi in the lobby of the Westin and from there it was a great time. Granted they were having a meeting to get some things worked out for the pre-cruise portion of the trip but it was interesting to see the inner workings. After all of that was said and done we sat down for drinks and appetizers. I have found MY drink while we are at the Westin. I love Cosmo's but I can say that hands down The Westin in Seattle makes the best ones by far. I'm sure that by the end of the 3 days the bartenders will know to make it as soon as they see me. YUMMO!!!

Sonya (sales manager at the Westin), Linda, Bobbi and me

We went to see a Mariners game last night and I was honestly thinking we would be sitting in an okay section. Nope. We were sitting in the Terrace Club seats. NICE!!! Found out a little more about the Vampire Night festivities and got a free Mariners baseball cap. :) A really nice one too. Not that I'm much of a cap person but I'll wear it for Vampire Night.

Me and Linda

I'm so glad I signed up for the Twilight Cruise. I've met some of my best friends through this trip and we haven't even gone on the cruise yet. Lifetime friendships have been formed and when I told Linda that it looked like she teared up a bit. I don't think she expected this little turn of events but her idea of a Twilight fans cruise was quite possibly one of the best things she could have ever done. :)

Concert 4/3/2010

Just because I want to be able to re-live it sometimes...

This was hilarious...

And my favorite song....aside from "I'm feelin' good" for obvious reasons. ;) This was the 2nd to last song and he still had energy after a 2 hour show. Amazing entertainer and someone I would be more than happy to spend as much money as possible to see again. I won't ever go see him without being in the 3rd row or closer. :)

OMT!!!! I found it!!!

While perusing youtube for Michael Buble video's from last Saturday's concert I came across the one where he smiled at me. I have just died again because I know that at :25 through :28 he was looking at ME!!!! Okay...the heart is doing some little pitter pattering again. Now I can live that moment over and over again. *sigh*

It's a makeup kind of thing

I admit it. I have turned into a makeup whore. I thank my Twi-friends for it. Sephora is like a swirling vortex of fabulous products that you just cannot pull yourself out of. I try to avoid the website at all costs but yesterday I had to order. Really. I did. Since there isn't a store here in the armpit of Washington I needed to get my birthday gift from them. A smokey eyes kit. I ordered something. What did I order??? Oh yeah!!! I ordered a small makeup tray. Seems that the one I have now is starting to get a little crowded.'s getting a lot crowded. BUT...with my order I not only got my smokey eyes kit I also got 3 perfume samples AND a super sample of Shiseido Bio-Performance Super Corrective Serum. All of that for $13. See? I love Sephora.

My weekend? Words almost fail me.

I had an amazing weekend. My whole 4 days off were amazing. Lunch with my Twi-friend on Thursday, relaxing in jammies on Friday. Saturday I flew to Seattle to meet up with an old friend. He decided to pamper me for the whole time I was there. He picked me up at the airport and we went to a little hole in the wall restaurant for lunch called Txori. YUM!!! It was a little Spanish place. Not Mexican. Phenomenal food.

From there I did something I've never done. I got a facial!!! Great little spa in Belltown. If you are in or around Seattle go check out Spa Noir. Found the most amazing skin products ever!!! Will most definitely be purchasing them.

I was surprised at where I was staying. He reserved a king room at The Edgewater for me. Talk about a nice place!!! Another highly recommended place to go.

Dinner was at a place I had never heard of. He took me to Palisade. He had told them it was my birthday so when we got there we had rose petals scattered on the table. Dinner was fabulous and the view, even though it was cloudy, was wonderful. Don't get me started on the pomegranate cosmo. Yummy!!!

Once dinner was over it was time to head to Key Arena for the very reason I went to Seattle. Michael Buble. I cannot even begin to say how fabulously fabulous the concert was. His opening act was "Naturally 7". They have no instruments other than their voices. Check them out...

I was in awe while watching them. Oh...I was in the 3rd row watching them. ;) Yes...I would be jealous too. LOL

After a brief intermission, this man came on stage...

I can safely say that any time he is in concert within driving distance I will be going. Holy crow that man can put on a show. He was "insert a lot of superlatives here". While he was singing the above song he was on the side of the stage where we were sitting. He was singing and looked right at me. Well...I thought he was but just to be sure I smiled really big and guess what? He smiled right back!!! Yes...I became a puddle at that moment. Michael Buble' smiled at me! *sigh* I love Michael Buble. Seriously though...the concert was fabulous and definitely worth seeing again.

Yesterday was spent walking around Pike Place Market and the waterfront. It was really too cold to enjoy much. I did get my photo taken with the Easter clam outside of Ivar's though. ;)

A great birthday and I truly hope that all of my birthdays from here on out are just as much fun.
