I loved all the colors. I would wear this color to work. Head over for your chance!

RIP Billy Mays

I logged onto the comp today and discovered that Billy Mays had passed away. So sad. So young. Life is too short and we never know when our time is up. Anthony Sullivan did an interview with Todd Schnitt (aka MJ from the MJ Morning show). It's heartbreaking to hear. You can find the audio interview here.

"Reception" July 25th, 2009

My good friend H is insisting on having a reception for my hubby and me. We told her we had one already. She is so stubborn. LOL. It's going to be a back yard bbq. Nothing fancy. Drinks, dinner and dancing. Can't beat that. I would like to extend the invitation to all my blogging buddies too! The more the merrier. It is July 25 at 6 in Imperial, MO.

This makes me smile.

Kids are crazy. They do silly things without thinking. The other night, Crash decided he would start jumping from furniture. This is the first time I have uploaded a video. This makes me giggle. When Crash turns to me and gestures with his hands, he is telling me something. Not sure what though! LOL.

Psych on USA

I stumbled on the show Psych. I remember seeing promos for it and thinking,"That show looks silly. I might catch it." I never did. My hubby and I then stopped getting the movie package on satellite, so I need to find some shows to fill my time. I figured I would give Psych a chance. Boy, am I glad I did. I LOVE this show. The new season starts August 7 and I cannot wait!! Psych is funny in a silly, immature way.

Here is a description of the show Psych from the USA website:
PSYCH is a quick-witted comedy/drama starring James Roday as young police consultant Shawn Spencer who solves crimes with powers of observation so acute that Santa Barbara PD detectives think he’s psychic.

Psych also stars Dulé Hill as Shawn's best friend and reluctant sidekick, Gus, and Corbin Bernsen as his disapproving father, Henry, who ironically was the one who honed his son's "observation" skills as a child. Also featured are Timothy Omundson, Maggie Lawson and Kirsten Nelson.

Psych airs Fridays at 10/9C on USA Network. The show's third season premieres July 18, 2008.
Psych was created by Steve Franks ("Big Daddy"), who also serves as executive producer, along with Chris Henze and Kelly Kulchack, in association with Tagline Television and NBC Universal Television Studios. Co-executive producers include Saladin Patterson ("Frasier") and Josh Bycel ("American Dad"). Serving as producers are Andy Berman, Anupam Nigam and Kell Cahoon. Tim Meltreger is staff writer.

Psych continues USA's tradition of original scripted programming centering on quirky, intelligent characters. As with Monk, Psych mixes comedy with its crime and features a somewhat eccentric lead character – Shawn, a police Psychic with absolutely no psychic abilities.

Raised in Santa Barbara by a family of cops, Shawn possesses uncanny powers of observation honed by his police officer father, Henry, who drilled young Shawn to note even the smallest of details from his surroundings as a way of grooming him for his inevitable career in the family business. Unfortunately, when a rift develops between father and son, Shawn finds himself taking a series of random jobs instead of becoming the detective he was groomed to be.

However, for the fun of it, Shawn makes a habit of calling in tips to the police about cases he reads about or sees on television, and when one of his tips appears too close to the truth, the police are convinced that Shawn is an accomplice and arrest him.

Using his charm and well-tuned talent, Shawn convinces the cops that he's actually a psychic, and although highly skeptical of his explanation, they hire him to help solve tough cases. With the reluctant assistance of his best friend Gus, Shawn uses his skills of observation and charismatic personality to become the detective he was trained to be, opening his own PI agency – Psych – and solving cases for an ever-suspicious, but grudgingly impressed, police force.

I think I've developed a little bit of crush on James Roday. He's got the boy next door look. I like that.

Hello! I am here!

Sorry I have been MIA. I've been lazy. I'm not even going to lie. I just didn't feel like blogging. Of course, I severe case of writer's block also helped in that. Crash caught a virus, and I had to spend time with his cranky booty. LOL. Boys are the worst when they are sick. Such babies!! I have also been enjoying time with my family. The weather has actually been nice, so the kiddos and I spend a lot of time playing in the yard.
I will leave you with some lines from Grace. We were at the Salvation Army and they have a sign posted about senior discounts. "Hey Mom, you can get the discount." She smiles at me like she's a riot.
Earlier this week, Grace wanted to make Kool-Aid. I told her to read the instructions on the package and call me if she had problems. I call her back because it's not like her to NOT have a question. "I'm confused. It says one cup of sugar, but do they mean a small cup or a big cup." Yep, she's a blond. I love her though. LOL.
