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!
