Love is a battlefield.....said while seriously LOL'ing

I have a laughing issue lately...I have this bellowing laugh that I can hear with my own ears.  My friends crack me side has actually hurt some days.  It makes me so happy to feels so damn good!!

 Life has been good lately, really really good.  It could be that I have spent so much time with my 3 daughters and have had lots of fun with them.  We have played hoops outside, had friends over for dinner, sleepovers with cousins, and movie nights with some of the best popcorn ever!  It could be this amazing weather the past week here in Milwaukee. 70's and the next few days in the low 80's.  I think it could make any Wisconsin girl happy.  It could be that things are falling into place.....professionally and personally. It could be really any or all of it!
 On another fun note.

Tonight when I got home from work, Sarah, a.k.a "BI" or "Built In" as she has been nicknamed, was watching one of those singing competition shows. We totally sang along.....
I truly can't tell you how much I LoVe this song....... 
My sister and I made so many attempts to tape this during Casey Kasem's Top 40 countdown in the early 80's! Who knew the words are so bitter. Clear your mind and wash the palette clean sounds like the only sensible advice. ;)

Always I'm surprised how well you cut my feelings to the bone
Don't want to leave you really
I've invested too much time to give you up that easy
To the doubts that complicate your mind

 Clear your mind and do your best to try and wash the palette clean
We can't begin to know it, how much we really care
I hear your voice inside me, I see your face everywhere
Still you say

We would belt this out.....enjoy!

Glad my door was open.

Just Breathe....

The other night after our kids went to bed I had some wine with my two good pals Rachel and Patrice.  We sat in Patrice's kitchen (she is my next door neighbor).  We all agreed that this song is our favorite......I can listen to it all day. Getting ready this morning...I did.  I'll try to write more later...Heading to the store at 10, stop by.  

Enjoy some Eddie Vedder -JR 

Some of the lyrics are so damn good!

Did I say that I need you?
Did I say that I want you?
Oh, if I didn't I'm a fool you see
No one knows this more than me

 Nothing you would take
Everything you gave
  Love you til I die
Meet you on the other side...

She Runs.....

I had a great day with this group of woman way back during the Fall.  My long time friend Kelly (in the white T, to my right in this photo) works for a super creative ad agency here in Milwaukee. Jen in the pink tank in the middle was the principal lead for the commercial, the rest of us followed along.  Jen did the greatest job and exudes what a true runner is. The commercial was filmed on numerous days and through three seasons. I absolutely love the way the commercial turned out. NonBox is the ad agency...a seriously genius group of people. Makes me wish I would have headed in that career direction.  The film and lighting crew is none other than The Electric Sun Corporation.  Rob and MP make working on their set feel like zero work at all. I have done a few things in the past with them, but this running ad was lots of fun.....might have helped that the part I was in was filmed in my hometown of Greendale, WI.  Susie, far right in the pic also went to school with Kelly and I. Almost all the women above still live in Greendale...It's a great village to grow up in!

Here is the final commercial. Blink and you'll miss me and my cronies running in the background...but Jen is really cool to watch. It truly makes me want to put my running shoes on...Scheels is not here in Wisconsin, but it still motivates you wherever you are!

One more thing...the entire commercial was filmed in Milwaukee and it's suburbs. Despite the sub par weather...I love this city!

I'm not scared of snow....

You don't frighten me Wisconsin Winter. You and your blustery wind, sleet, and tonight's anticipated 4-7 inches. 

Yes, my car does not have the best snow performs better on ice free pavement.

I still believe and have faith that Spring is imminent....

Yes, it may be far away, but it will come.

And I'll be ready.

Today at NextDoor we had tons of shoppers. Spring outfits flew out the door.....many heading on vacations, but some just going out here in Milwaukee this weekend. 
Stop in soon to see how Spring looks.. :)
