Just call me "Mrs. Mayor" or "Your Royal Mayorness." I'm cool.

Saturday,  after a big garage sale (I swear it's the last garage sale I host!)  as a family we sat down to watch a movie.  Tangled.  It's cute and easy.

3/4 of the way through comments began:

Elvis: "Dad, some day you will be King."

Q (from a lounging position): "King of What?"

Mr. Handsome: "There's a song that might help us with that."

Me: "Wait, let me check Youtube,  I think it's something like King of Anything."

Ladycakes: "Yes, I love that song!"

Mr. Handsome: "No, that's not what I was thinking.  It mentioned being the mayor....."

Me: "Is this it?"

Mr. Handsome: "Yes! Best song EVER!"

Me: "oh yeah, that makes WAY more sense.  You totally are gonna be King."

Add "Mayor of Simpleton" by XTC to my Life Soundtrack.

Regarding the Rapture

While driving home from a swim meet, the following dialogue occurred.

Q:  "Mom, what time is it?"

Me:  "It's 4:52."

Q:  "So, an hour and 8 minutes until the end of the world?"

Me: "Well, it's 6:00 somewhere."

Q: "Then, we're good??"

Me: "Yep, hon.  I think we're good."

Q:  "Okay, good."

We survived another day or Heaven looks exactly the same as our everyday life.  Wait... is this Hell?  (kidding.)

My Review of Flip Flop Children's Pink Beach Sandal

Originally submitted at My Cuban Store

Flip Flop Children's Pink Beach Sandal. Molded strap with printed logo. Squishy top-sole with printed heel logo. Custom Cobian textured outsole. You've herd the saying "Pretty in Pink". Well, that's just how your little girl will feel.

Perfectly Pink. But run a bit small.

4out of 5

Sizing: Feels half size too small

Width: Feels true to width

Pros: Stylish, Cute, Totally fun flip flops

Cons: Run just a little small

Best Uses: Wedding foot wear, Casual Wear

Describe Yourself: Alternative, Stylish, Trendy

Okay, we bought these for our boys. Yes, boys (10 and 6) for our niece's wedding. It is super hip for boys to wear pink and we wanted to go casual for this Colorado wedding. They do run small but at this price I am okay with ordering again. It's not SO small that they can't wear them day to day. They were shipped quickly and the product seems very high quality. Waiting on some other items that I will review. So Far So Good. Thanks MyCubanStore!

The black birds outside tell me it's Spring. It's Ornithorgasmic.

The weather here is questionable.  It threatens constantly.  Cloudly, rainy, snowy.  It's just questionable.  But today I experienced it.  The sign of Spring.  The black birds in my backyard are busy.  Some are flaunting, some are chasing, some are fleeing.  They are BUSY!  It reminded me that Winter won't last forever.

Baby birds are being created.  There is a whole lot of ornitho-foreplay happening in my backyard.  It makes me happy when blue skies are gray......

I am hopeful, not horny, birds don't do it for me.
