The Best Costco Lunch EVER.

Ok - I don't have a lot of time to write this right now. Reader's Digest version:

My mother loves bargains - even when she doesn't need whatever is on sale. (My father would say ESPECIALLY when she doesn't need whatever is on sale - but whatever). Her last splurge? Coldwater Creek necklaces. Oooh yes, folks - this woman bought like fifty of them. Why does she need fifty Coldwater Creek necklaces? (for starters, to share with ME! - thanks mom :)) Other than that? Who knows.


I'll let the pictures do most of the explaining from here on out.

This is Mom riding her newest 'Great Deal' purchase - a California Cruiser (which allegedly costs $250 new, and she scored for $60!).

Apparently it was a great enough deal that she felt she needed to stop by Costco to show my dad & I (we met for lunch today) instead of just showing us later...AND she was excited enough to actually get it out & ride it. Right there. In the parking lot of Costco.

This is Mom deciding that she's SO excited that she's going to ride it through the tables of people sitting there having lunch. While munching a hot dog.

This is the part where my Dad was so embarassed that he told me goodbye & tried to nonchalantly leave while Mom was making her rounds through the tables. She saw him, though, and chased him through the parking lot yelling, "WHERE ARE YOU GOING, HONEY?? DON'T YOU WANT TO RIDE IT FOR A MINUTE?!"

Aaaaand this was the moment where I thought I might actually pee my pants. She apparently tried to 'zig' where the Cruiser wanted to 'zag' and she ended up totally eating crap. Haha! I laughed. So did she. I'm pretty sure my Dad wanted to die, though. :)

This is Dad helping her back onto the Cruiser, which she rode back across the parking lot to her car.
I wish I had gotten some more shots, but I honestly was having trouble breathing with how hard I was laughing.
It was so awesome.
Best Costco lunch EVER.

Little Man Tuck

Here are some pictures for all who are just DYING for a Tucker update (I know I kind of went puppy-crazy on the blog for a while & then just left you all hanging!). My bad.

Here's what he's been up to lately...

Activity number one: Sleeping in.

Haha his new haircut makes him look a tiny bit like a little old man...but it's cool. I happen to like little old men quite a lot.

This is his "did you really just wake me up to take pictures of me with your stupid camera phone, lady??" face. Adorable, right?? Haha poor guy.

Sorry for the crappy quality photos - I seem to lack the capability to actually CHARGE my nice camera. Someday I'll have cute & quality photos to post. Promise.

Hear, Hear.

Agreed, Calee. Amen.

Melissa = flipping awesome for handling it the way she did. And calling him a b-word.

Molly = empty-headed and in denial over the fact that Jason is 100% certain to get bored in another two weeks and book it. Maybe call Deanna back up.

Jason = b-word. for real.

Jillian = foxiest, funniest bachelorette with the most ridiculously cute dresses in history. I bet she woke up this morning like... wheeeeeeeeeeew! Dodged THAT bullet!

Thank you, Jason, for being too busy crying and feeling sorry for yourself to notice what a catch she is. Now I can bask in her gloriousness for an entire season.

Um, why the heck did no one ever ask why the MINK he got a divorce in the first place? For real, people? The man has some serious issues.

P.s. He has been officially removed from my 'hot men on tv' blog.

Really, Jason? REALLY??

Ok. If you haven't watched the most recent & final Bachelor episode, please stop reading this now.

For everyone else who had the fantastic opportunity of wasting two hours of their evening realizing minute by minute what a CREEP Jason is, feel free to continue.

Does anyone else out there feel they've been CHEATED?! I honestly feel like I have been personally lied to about what kind of guys Jason was/is. He seemed so sincere...but after watching last night's episode, I realize that he's just another ridiculously selfish, lying, manipulative crybaby of a man. I can't believe I wasted all this time watching him & thinking what an idiot Deonna was. Ugh.

I'm not saying he should've stayed with Melissa if he decided he wasn't in love with her. I agree that being with someone if you don't WANT to make it work is a bad idea; HOWEVER, breaking up with your fiancee on national television and FIVE MINUTES LATER telling someone ELSE you were actually mistaken when you thought you loved your fiancee enough to get married and that you're ACTUALLY in love with HER even though you DUMPED HER BUTT and haven't talked to her since?!?! THAT, my friends, is a WRETCHED idea. Awful. I mean, REALLY, Jason?? REALLY?!

I'd like to take this moment and give major props to Melissa who handled that situation with a grace I don't think I'll ever achieve in this lifetime. Sure, it's a dumb reality TV show and all - but I believe 100% that she was honest in her intentions and her feelings. Rock on, Melissa. You deserve SO much better.

And Molly. You all saw the hesitation. You all saw the shock and confusion. I say high five to her for thinking and not just reacting. Speaking from personal experience, it's hard when someone you love says they want you back after being a complete and total creep. One of her first questions was, "What about Melissa...?" Good job, Molly. Just recognize what he REALLY IS and not what you've been lead to believe he is (read above to be reminded about what I think he really is).

-sigh- Ooh engagement. Why do people take you so lightly? It's not a game. Don't get down on one knee unless you intend to follow through.

Just don't.

TV Guide

Seriously, television has been so good to me recently. I think it's God's way of helping me through hard dating situations.

And my recent favorite...

I don't know what it is about his weird girly faces and awkward hand movements, but I am in love with him. The fact that he wears tighter pants and more make up than I do is a non-issue. He can sing Cher to me all day long. Yum.
