Good mornin' beautiful...

Sometimes I daydream about being sung to. I think it would be one of the most romantic things ever. Finding a guy that is musically impaired wouldn't be a deal breaker..just an added bonus if he included this ability.

These are a few of the most romantic songs I feel are out there. If a man sang one (or all) of these songs to me....oh lord, I would be weak!

Your Man - Josh Turner
Just Like Sunshine - James Otto
Good Morning Beautiful - Steve Holy
When You Say Nothing At All - Keith Whitley
I'd Love To Be Your Last - Clay Walkere
The Greatest Story Ever Told - Oliver James

D Day

A couple of weeks ago "D Day" was celebrated! What is D Day you ask?

Divorce Day. 

Donut Divorce Day. 

Daylight Donut  Divorce Day... because you can't have donuts unless they are Daylight Donuts!

D Day was born in 2000, the year of my divorce. I was quite excited that the papers were signed that I celebrated by bringing donuts to the office that day. The following year I celebrated again, and for a few years after that. 

Then for a few years ...I forgot. 

I still work with a couple of friends that were there on the first D Day. A couple of years ago I was asked, "Why don't we celebrate D Day anymore?" Heck, I don't know why we didn't but who could pass up reviving a holiday that is celebrated with Daylight Donuts?

Not, this girl! 

I actually had to look up the date since I didn't remember it anymore and guess what...It was the 10th anniversary of D Day. Now if that wasn't a sign that it needed to be revived, I don't know what was! 

Daylight Donuts is a little dive building that has been standing for as long as I can remember. They make all their donuts fresh every morning, right in their little building. They open early, 6 am or so, and are only open until early afternoon. Get them in the morning or you don't get them at all! 

So on the particular morning of the 10th revival anniversary of D Day I was standing in the small lobby, looking out the window, as they boxed my 3 dozen assorted donuts for the office. It was about 6:30 am and as I peered out the window I noticed my ex-husband drive by on his way to work. 

(I dial his number)

Him: Hello

Me: Good morning, I just saw you drive by. 

Him: Where are you?

Me: Daylight Donuts, buying donuts to celebrate the anniversary of our divorce. 

Him: Loriiiiiiii, you can't do that, that's not nice. 

Me: (chuckle) Well I am, and it's funny that I watched you drive by at the same time. 

Him: Save me a donut. 

Me: Buy your own, I'm not your wife anymore! :) 

Him: (Laugh) Fine, I am going to have my own celebration and you're not invited.  

Me: Perfect! Have a happy divorce day! 

Him: You too!


And with that D Day was re-born...

Skinny Girl

Woman who made Skinny Girl Margaritas = brilliant!

Woman who made Skinny Girl makeup = I don't get it??

I don't think anyone is going to come up to me and say "oh. my. god. you are looking soooo it the mascara you've been using??" 

But from now when I feel guilty for eating a whole bag of chocolate...I will just put on some Skinny Girl foundation!

I miss...

I miss crawling into bed next to the one I love, laying my head on his chest while being kissed on the forehead and falling asleep in his arms. Somehow, for the next 8 hours or so, that brings peace to my analytical mind, calms my worrisome soul and rejuvenates my heart.

Love is an irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired. - Robert Frost

Is it asking too much to want that?

Dateless adventures...

It's slightly difficult to write about dating adventures when there haven't been any dates to speak of. I've been on ONE date since last June!

This one date was with the guy I was starting to see last year. Out of the blue he all of a sudden started talking to me again, months after we had decided we were obviously looking for different things. He asked me to go to the movies so I figured what the heck, wouldn't hurt to see if he's in a different place. The date was enjoyable but soon after I asked why he had contacted me again and if what he was looking for had changed. It hadn't. As nice as it was to go on a date I told him to hit the road again..I want a more serious relationship and not going to spin my wheels going no where with him.

I have completely given up on dating sites, the guys don't seem to be looking for a relationship - only a hook up. I don't meet anyone in person that seems interested. I'm beginning to think I should turn this into the dateless adventures blog!

So this is more of what I do with my dateless time...Hockey Games!
