Brooklyn Girl

 Brooklyn Girl
 is a casual neighborhood American eatery
 with a sustainable farm-to-table attitude.
It won Best Restaurant of San Diego for 2013.
And that is how my daughter picked the place
she wanted to have lunch at in San Diego
 before she had to head back home to the desert.
The internet is so useful.
The ambiance of Brooklyn Girl made you want to stay all day and
so did the grapefruit soda's from the soda fountain.
They were delicious.
If you find yourself in San Diego,
don't miss it.

Call Me Crazy...

But I love this flower from Anthropology

I also love their clothes but nothing fits
Everything in their store is made for skinny girls

Dear Anthropology,

I love your clothes.
I wish I could get married again
just to wear one of your BHLDN wedding dresses
and decorate with all of your fancy decorations.
But that's not why I am writing to you, I would like to inquire
why you have something against curvy women?
Your clothes are designed for skinny girls.
In the future, is it possible to design your clothes with us in mind?

A Curvy girl


PS and I would still get married to the same man

Not a Chocolate Chip Kind of Day

My hubby lost his best friend last night
I am so sad today
so many memories with a family pet
he was also my hubby's hunting partner
he will be missed

Would Somebody Please Have a Ball

One of my favorite parts of
Pride and Prejudice
is the ballroom scene
the one where Keira Knightly plays Elizabeth
from the entrance with all the carriages dropping off the guests,
the fire burning in the urns, the amazing home of Mr. Bingley,
to the ball gowns and men in tuxedo's,
especially, Mr. Darcy

I would love to wear the gown above
I just don't have a ball to go to

Stuck in Traffic Forever

I went to town today
(if you grew up in Buckeye,
that's what you call going into the big city)
to pick up my son's birthday present
he has wanted an old ice chest forever
a really old one
but all the one's I have seen on the internet
are way out of my price range
but yesterday,
as I was looking on instagram,
one of the junk in the trunk girls was having a sale on instagram
and had posted a pic of a coleman ice chest
it was old, but not that old
I thought it would be perfect for his birthday,
and it would save me from running around in this heat
looking for one and it was priced right
I also scored some great furniture from the Salvation Army
for the next vintage sale while I was killing time
waiting to pick up the ice chest
on my way home I got stuck in traffic
if there's anything I loathe,
it's traffic that is not moving on a freeway
a big truck hauling watermelons overturned in the tunnel
and so all traffic was detoured OFF OF THE FREEWAY
yes, all 10,000 cars that were on the freeway and not moving
were detoured to a two lane road
it's a good thing I had my I phone to distract me

Summer 2013

I love this bag
you can find it here

computer problems
no blogging

In early June
I went to the beach
my favorite place in the whole world
I love the water and the sand
we ate good food
had beautiful weather
watched a drug bust go down at one in the morning
as we were peeking over our third story balcony
with helicopters  and a squat team
a couple of houses down from where we were staying
scary stuff but exciting to watch
we also visited the San Diego Zoo
my least favorite thing to do in the whole world
but I sacrificed for my grandson

I was home for just a few days
and then onto Reno
where my hubby and I drove to Lake Tahoe
the water in that lake
is absolutely breathtaking
I want to go back in the winter
we also visited
Carson City and Virginia City
I love the feeling
of the old west in that part of the Country
so much history

and finally,
the Fourth of July
with family
at a resort with a big pool
the only way to spend Independence Day
in the desert

I better go
my grandson was here for a week
and my house is a mess
time to get busy
