My husband drove back from Bryn Mawr with this amazing pie completely intact! My motherinlaw sent him home with it...I wish I could take credit because it's perfect!!
Meanwhile, I will be gathering ingredients for the famous Lulu's Pumpkin Cheesecake today!! Yipee!!! I have to find the springform pan...not seen since the move but I am sure will locate it.

Anywho, I was at a sales/marketing training this past week and the very, very famous man speaking to us said a lot of powerful things in the 8+ hours I was there...but one particular thing stood out and I'll paraphrase that "self-made millionaires all worked very hard when they were new....and poor people watch TV all the time".
Such a good point. The competition isn't sitting around watching a lot of TV. Hmmmm...
So I sat their and smugly thought that I had the TV situation on lock down...all my shows are recorded..(sometimes two at a time!) and then I can watch them after hours..between 9p and midnight. And truly...there are only a few to record. Gossip Girl, Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, Dr 90210, Lipstick Jungle, Law and Order:SVU, Dirty Sexy Money, The Office and Entourage of course..
That is more than I thought. And I am dangerously close to the edge of being a "TV person". (umm, over the edge already?)
And they are all like completely silly shows too. Hmmm...I think that relaxing and putting the brain in neutral is a good thing for stress relief every so often, but perhaps this is too much?
Is 'TV person' only a bunny hop away from 'couch potato'...
Oh lordy...too heavy to contemplate this late at night. I will take a stab at the DVR list in the morning...
Night night sweet people!

Lord, help me because I think deer are the most gentle and beautiful creatures ever! I truly just block the whole thing outta my mind but the saving grace is that he donated the deer to Hunters for the Hungry. Saves me from learning how to cook venison. So there's a silver lining.
Happy Sunday all.
#2. Eeeeppp!!! Watch out--I think the Redskins are gonna beat the Cowboys today--Sorry to my Dallas friends!!!! ;)
PS--does anyone else love this picture? I just think she looks so adorable here and really Jessica Simpson has nothing to do with how Tony Romo will play but still this pink number 9 is like the cutest thing

I now have an adorable signature block on my gmail account. Oh yeah.
It even has my business headshot and website logo and everything...and I did it all by myself! This was something that I wanted for a while and I finally took the time to figure it out.
Success is a few glorious emails away, for sure.
I wish that I could type out step-by-step instructions ladies...but that is what the excitement was all about...I just super-sluethed out the instructions from multiple sources. I googled "html in gmail signature block" and a bunch of instructions came up on other people's blogs. (yay for the bloggers!) and then since I use Firefox as a browser it was easier I guess, I had to download a plugin and then I copied someone else's html example and cut his personal stuff out and put mine in. Searched for the pink html codes and fonts and it worked.

Will always have a special place in my heart for Army Nurses!!
But anyway, it's a bond that I have with these sweet people that will never go away--no matter what or how ever long it is in between seeing each other. Here's a quote that I received this AM from the girl standing next to me in the picture. It got me real good!!!

I ended up going with a shade closest to the last picture you see here. It was called Pebble Mosaic because its so dark it almost is a dark brown/grey. Hard to describe but it's fabulous.
OK--here comes the hgtv moment of inspiration. We (Mr Lulu) painted the walls above the chair rail in flat pebble mosaic paint and below with simple bright white paint. THEN my dear MIL came for the weekend and helped me measured and tape vertical stripes of high gloss paint...oh snap. You know it is so high style and looking like the park avenue chic I see myself as...
My actual pictures to follow.
I know what I'll be clinging to over these next few years.
A little Naval shout-out to John McCain;) My husband has this flag on the wall of the garage..over his work bench!! Very cool.
PS--today's the day to start the glad game again
