the mac miracle...

this is a true story:

let me take you back to the month of december. one week before the wedding.
the diskdrive in my 'polly' the powerbook g4 goes out.
the warrenty went out a few weeks before...real convienient

apple bascially says- sorry you are out of luck...pay us tons of money and we will fix it...
i say- noway jose- i'll fix it myself.

fast forward to july...
months after i have poked and proded that laptop to get that dang drive to work again, priced out getting it fixed, racked my apple friends brains, looked at parts ect...

days of whining and crying that i need to put cd's into my laptop or burn a cd, ect...

im getting ready to order something online and ask joel for a credit card.

he's a smart alick as usual and puts it into the diskdrive...
and i hear a quiet 'click'...

i hold my breath and move it around a bit...
'click click' with every motion.

i say- 'joel- i think you fixed it...'
i then run and get a cd and hold my breath as i push it in...

YESS!!!!! 'IT'S A MIRACLE!!' i yell feverishly with 100 giggles to back it up.

i then proceed to jump up and down and scream 'THANK YOU GOD!'

he knew i needed that little drive...i think he just knew how much work he saved me from burning wedding cds over the past 8 months and was looking out for me...haha.

...well that's how i like to see it.

thanks big guy for my mac miracle.

it finally worked today after a week of trying.
im kinda cute as a simpson aren't i?

even penny lane is a simpson...

hairspray with horak...

tonight i met up with a good ol' friend steph horak...
my favorite to be cop chick in nola- im proud of ya girl...
we went to see hairspray...
it was super cute-i think i still liked 1988 ricki lake version better- just because i love the 80's and it just adds a little extra class when they do the roach dance...

simpsonized me...

joel made this of me today...
i always wanted to be in the simpson's...
thanks for making my dreams come true.

...3 more days until the big movie!
i can't wait.

i have loved bart simpson since i was a kid...
i would secretly watch him when my mom stepped out of the room-
because she said i wasn't allowed to watch it.

i remember one year when we went on a family vacation to adventure land when i was maybe 6 or 7 years old...
my mom said i could pick one souvenir...
my dad took me in to pick something out.

i got a big bart simpson key chain.
needless to say my mom was not pleased.

i said, 'mom don't have a cow, man.'
i think my dad laughed.

our little friend pearl...

you might remember her from the landlord skit i posted up here a few months ago.
The Landlord
HILLARIOUSSSS i loved it soo much i have watched it 100 times!!!
this is her last movie as a child actor supposedly.
Good Cop, Baby Cop
i sure hope not...
she is the cutest.

sorry for the language...
but its soo funny.

more than meets the eye...

last night me and joel went on a date to red lobster, because we saw a commercial the other day and realized we had never had lobster before...
it was pretty decent.
i got some lobster alfredo and coconut shrimp... and a pina colata.
joel got the ultimate feast...and boy was it.

then we went to see transformers.
it was pretty amazing.
i would recommend seeing it if you are an old school fan like me- or just like sweet movies.

i even got a little transformers camera the other day. it's probably the coolest things i've ever seen.

pool party number 2...

was today.
it was a hit.
the skies cleared and the sun even made an appearance at the end.
there were tons of people and they ate up all the food and even drank all the booze.
the pina colada machine was amazing and there wasn't even a drop left.
with 15 minutes left of the party the properties manager had to go on a beer run.
everyone had a blast and one guy even said he was 'proud of me for doing such a good party.' haha.
next party saturday...pray its not too hot.

happy birthday matty!

happy 28th birthday matt.

im sure this will be a year of good golf, beer and friends (and some family right)
tonight sure was fun!
here's to many more years of fun together- and tokyo rose fish bowls!

my husband the tv star....

joel and his pals josh and dan were featured on fox 42 tonight for their mad frolfing skills.

frolfing= frisbee golf.

they have done it for years and he has bags of disks that he washes weekly during the season...

it's finally paying off- him and his frolf friends are famous!

here is the link to the story.

who's in?

possibly the coolest thing i've heard all week...

a free evening of local music and a classic movie outside in the holland center courtyard...

this friday-

Extra Space Jazz at 7:45 p.m.

Extra Space Jazz
Led by trombonist Chris Acker, these seven members of the Omaha Big Band comprise one of the region's premier jazz combos.

and then....

Alfred Hitchcock’s North By Northwest at 8:45 p.m.

Alfred Hitchcock’s darkly comic thriller North by Northwest is widely considered one of the greatest Hollywood movies ever made. Starring Cary Grant as a middle-aged Madison Avenue advertising executive mistaken as a CIA agent by a group of spies, this heart-pounding game of cat and mouse will keep you on the edge of your seat until the last frame.

then august 3 is westside story and august 31 is the wizzard of oz!!!

get your picnic baskets ready friends!

hopin...and wishin...and prayin...

that some day 'in the near future' we will have one of these.
the adler 4 by hearthstone homes...

or the blake 4

all that we want is a lil' ranch to call our own.
think of how much fun penny lane would have...

blog number 301...

i didn't realize my last blog was number 300.

so... here is to 300 more.

my first professional pool party...

was today at one of our properties.
it was sooo hot that i didn't know if i would make it- but i did.
we had about 40 adults show up and 30 kids.

had awesome food!
bbq beef brisket sandwiches, grilled chicken, pasta salad, baked beans, chips, veggie and fruit trays...and cold beer and sodas.
i heart jack and mary's chicken!
it was a hit- i think they usually only got hot dogs and chips in the past.

we had some sweet door prizes thanks to my friend bam at clear channel and the funny bone.

my dj, glenn lewis, rocked the house.

basically not too shabby for my first big event at work.
