A high-heel loving gal and her trusty sidekick…

Lucy always gets to go next door to play with "bet wens" (that's best friends for you non-Longi's) Shadow & Pumpkin. We love it.
So today we decided to make some doggy treats to take over as a thank you!
They are delish, according to Lulu - peanut butter and oatmeal! I'm trying to keep Lavvies from eating them before Lucy gets her share... :D


I think I need to quit hanging out with boys...

Last night I just wanted to go watch this:

But, it was sold out. So instead we watched this:

And played this:
Seriously, guys?

Try-a-site Tuesday?

I shoulda done this on Wednesday, then it coulda been Website Wednesday. I'm willing to take naming help in the comments.

But here is your website suggestion o' the week.

I love Tumblr... it is the weirdest/greatest assortment of time-wasters i've ever seen! Some other great ones include Garfield minus Garfield (answers the burning question Is Jon Arbuckle schizophrenic?), STFU Parents (showcasing crazy-ass people all over the interwebs), The Story of Man (story of man told in headlines from around the world), and of course Dads are the Original Hipsters because every single one of those pictures reminds me of my dad circa 1973-1988.

Enjoy! Hope you don't get fired after wasting all that time! :)

What i've been up to (super post)...

I haven't blogged in a while. Because I've been busy! (Sort of.)
So here is the super picture post, long overdue...

What I've been up to (completely out of order) -
Went to see "Wicked" last night with Pia and a few Camp friends. 2nd time seeing it was just as amazing as the 1st...

Took Lucy out to Camp Cross for "Labor of Love" (aka work your butt off for free, because you love this place time).
She swam. I did not. That water is COLD.
At one point, heard a LOUD screeching noise. It was just the boat on trailer, flying down the hill to the lake. Oops. No big deal, it all turned out shockingly fine.
Lucy got home Sunday night and CRASHED. Big time. She was SOOOO tired. Love that.

Oh yeah, we also went to VEGAS.

There was drinking.

And eating yummy food...

We went to a show... umm...

We gambled (of course)...

We met Elvis...
(And Tony Montana)

But mostly we just laughed, had fun, lost some money, won some money, laid by the pool, etc.

(Oh, yeah. My boy Timmy was there too)

As usual, I took hardly any pics, so the only ones I've got were stolen from Pia and Bethany. But you may not have noticed that Cara, Tony, Patty, Dad and Tone's friend Alex were all present in addition to me, Mom, Pia, Sara, Bethany and Michele!
The groups kind of crossed paths in the night (the girls had to leave Sunday am and the East Coasters didn't arrive until late Saturday night)... But it was SUPER FUN getting to hang with all my favorite peeps! Thanks for making 30 that much less depressing!

Also, 4 Loco is awful. Just in case you weren't sure.

By popular demand...

It's the "Link of the Week"!
I received multiple requests for this, since apparently I 'spend a LOT of time online...' and people wanna know what I'm doing.

So, I will present my fave websites for killing time.
The first one is...

Here is an example of why I love it:
Basically, people just submit their texts, which are usually pretty great. From the makers of "Damn You Autocorrect" which I also love.

Vegas Baby!

We head off to Vegas tomorrow! Wahoo!

The whole Longinotti clan is meeting there, along with a few of my girlfriends and one of Tony's buddies... We get to celebrate me entering a new decade (ugh) and also my dad's birthday next week.

Staying at the Paris which is super fun (I stayed there a few years ago on a girl trip - it is very nice)!

Mostly, I'm excited for SUN. And cocktails. And maybe some Blackjack. And maybe a show.

Pics will follow, I promise!

LOVE her.

What can I even say about this lady?
She is my absolute favorite person on the planet.
She is always game for an adventure with me - driving cross-country? No prob. Driving to LA? Sure! We are the ultimate road-trip buddies. Never a fight or irritation. We do stupid things like find World's Biggest Cowboy Boots or get stuck in the middle of a buffalo herd without batting an eyelash.
She makes an excellent Grammy to Lucy Lou, even though I know all she really wants is a real grandbaby. Someday, Mom. I promise.
She is a wonderful nurse to her sick/broken children - even though she claims to have a 3-day limit, it's not really true. (Keep that on the down low though.) I never heard one peep of complaint from her when I was on crutches for 5+ weeks and needed someone to do pretty much everything for me.
She loves her kids. Loves us so so much. And we love her back just as much.

Here are some (totally random) pics - there is zero rhyme/reason to these, other than they were handy on my laptop. :)


(This one is basically my fave pic of all time. Such scrapnoodles.)

This is it.

Well, today is my last day in my 20s.

Not sure how I feel about this. Like 65% of the time I am totally fine with it. Then about 15% I freak out that I can't possibly be 30!!! The other 10%? I fluctuate between ambivalence, excitement, and complete horror.

Everyone over 30 (for the most part) keeps telling me I should be happy. "The 30s were/are my favorite decade," they say. "I knew who I was, I was happy with that person, I had the most fun, etc etc."

Okay, I can see what they mean. I do know who I am, and I am very happy with that person (for the most part). I have dear friends, wonderful family, an adorable puppy. I love my job and where I live. BUT I still have so much I want to do - travel more, buy a house, get married and have kids - and part of me gets nervous that I'm running out of time! Dumb, probably, but there you go.

Alas, none of it really matters I suppose. Because, as they so wisely say, time marches on. And I am thrilled to be able to celebrate another year! :D
