Could these be the best travel pants ever?

I am planning a trip to Japan in the summer and I think these pants will be an amazing addition to my travel wardrobe.  I've tried them on I think I love them... just wish they would go on sale!

I can just imagine tooling around Tokyo in these and my grey Eddie Bauer Keens!

Cute & functional a must for international travel!

Holiday rituals

I love making time for the small pleasures in life. I picked up the sweetest holiday cards at Marshall's the other day and I'm excited to make a pot of tea and finish writing Christmas cards to my friends and family. Writing Christmas cards is so bittersweet. It's nice to take a few moments and think of each of your loved ones but then I start missing everyone!!!

Fun with Critters...

Today was a free day at the Denver Zoo.  I am so glad I decided to go early.  By the time I headed back to my car at 11:30 the place was a.......  zoo

I did have a great time despite the herds of people!

I know its only rock and roll but I like it!!!

Here is the before picture of my deck.... What a mess!! The stain we previously used, turned out to be for vertical surfaces, not horizontal surfaces. Yes! there is a different type of stain for each who knew?

After much online research we sanded, stripped and painted.  The result of that hard  work is so gratifying.  To stay on task, I motivated myself by planning a little party.  My goal was to have the deck finished in time for the event.  I am happy to report I had a lovely, ladies brunch/clothing swap today.  What a nice reward! 

Here are some after pics...

Charisma baby yeah....

Happy Tuesday yall,

I had a great three day weekend and I'm feeling very rejuvenated.  I happened to take a quiz in "Oprah magazine" on my charisma quotient and was surprised to find I scored off the charts.  According to this quiz only 5% of the population scores in the same range.  The question now is do I use this knowledge for good or for evil.....  wahhhh haaaaaa haaaaaaa haaaaaa (evil laugh effect)

Definition of CHARISMA Merriam-Webster

1: a personal magic of leadership arousing special popular loyalty or enthusiasm for a public figure (as a political leader)

2: a special magnetic charm or appeal

Sounds pretty good to me unfortch...  it has a dark side.

  "Charisma on its own is not evil and does not necessarily breed a cult leader. Charisma is, however, a powerful and awesome attribute found in many cult leaders who use it in ways that are both self-serving and destructive to others"

Finally neither here or there if you google image Charisma you get this....
