Anyways... back on track! We leave at 7am Friday morning and come home next Wednesday night at midnight! I am excited and will be even more so once I get past the leaving part and packing, which might I add the weather said the highs are only 70 so what to wear? what to wear??? I thought about trying my hand at mobile blogging while I was away but don't count on it and if you see some chicken scratch of a post while I am away now you know...I tried! HA! I added some photos of some things we are going to do/see for you to think of me while I am gone... the first is a picture of our hotel the Hyatt Regency Monterey Spa and Resort and I hope it looks half as good in person as it does in the picture below..
This is the Monterey Fisherman's Wharf it is full of shopping, seafood, restaurants and fun things to do and I think we are gonna hit this up next Tuesday!!
This is our tentative Saturday morning "outing" the Monterey Bay Aquarium... it is the biggest in the US and you know all those movies and commercials with an aquarium? Well it is this one!! Everyone we talk to and every site I go to says this is a must see!!

Sanjolly???? I will have to admit they are cute together and I think it is funny how the rest of the "celebrities" call their hammocks the Love Nest! BUT.... I have one question..... I thought Sanjaya was gay? And so you know I am not a avid watcher of this show but at times I have been known to get sucked into an episode or two!

The story line goes Ryan Reynolds hates his evil boss Sandra and then she finds out she will be deported and blackmails Ryan's character into marrying her. The movie is very predictable but what romantic comedy isn't?

Who do I think will get the book tonight? Asuka and her partner, they just don't do it for me. Ok, now switching gears here I really think I missed my calling as a (drum roll please) Disco QUEEN!!! I loved the Disco number even though she tripped but just think back and picture me in this routine... I would rock the socks off!! (With a ton of training let me add)
Tonight I am running my friend Chelsea's wedding rehearsal in Duncan and then tomorrow I will be out of the office doing wedding stuff!! I am excited for the wedding and Chelsea is a great friend of mine who might I add will be honeymooning in Italy! Wow huh?

So I have been a Busy Bee today.... one job that I received after some discussion on ways to help market, promote as well as keep the JH members informed was to create and maintain a JH blog!! And my preliminary blog is ready to introduce to my friends!!! Be sure to check out the photo montage!!
So I just emailed my other board members and I hope they are pleased but I also hope you all will be able to keep informed about this wonderful service organization I am a part of!

This weekend was our Board of Directors retreat in Tulsa and it was filled with hard work (ice chest hauling included) girl bonding, and great fun! Both Friday & Saturday were spent in board rooms while we set our 2009-2010 calender and went thru board reports and discussed ways to make Junior Hospitality more beneficial to the places we help and to ourselves as well! (that is the very short version) Each night we went to dinner followed by girl talk in our rooms!
Myself, Susan & Becky at dinner on Friday!!
I got home Sunday before noon and wanted to do nothing but lay on the couch! So Matt & I rented He's just not that into you.... I heard some people loved it, my question is how? It was NOT funny and it was LONG and DULL!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was a total renter and I would not even recommend it! yuck, what a waste of a great cast!
Today starts another busy week.... I have a friend (Chelsea & Coty blog) getting married Friday and I made her photo montage and I am helping her with her coordinating!! So Board retreat down wedding week here I come!!

Below is an example of one of last years "Table Scapes" I got to help pick... here is how it works: Tonight we will go thru about 20 "inspiration boards" submitted by local wedding planners who have decorated them with their wedding decor ideas. We discuss the pros and cons how this would work and look in the magazine and ways to improve on their designs! It is a wonderful time and I just love seeing the final 7-9 designs in the finished magazines each January!! I am so excited but I won't be able to tell anymore because I am told this is "top secret"!!

She is not only a mother, a blogger, but an AMAZING photographer, cook, and she home schools her children. Her days are spent cooking, working the ranch and they are building their dream home which is an unbelievable lodge!
I wanted to include the summary from Amazon so this review would not only give my opinion but give you an accurate depiction of the book. "Riveting and Haunting" are the words the NY Times used to describe this book and I could not of said it better myself. This is a HUGE change from any book I have read and it takes some getting use to as you are transported to Afghanistan and even towards the end of the book the dialect and scenery at times was hard to picture in my head. This book is about feelings, guilt, love, loyalty, family and there are so many layers to the characters in this book and to the story itself and it is those layers that seperates this book from others. At times while reading this book it caused me to lay awake at night thinking about the story line or a scene that just happened. I won't sugar coat it there are a couple of things that are hard to read and swallow but everything is so important to the story and the make-up of the characters. I truly enjoyed this book and was enthralled at how thought provoking it was. Another aspect was that it really makes you see the world thru the eyes of the countless people in Afghanistan who were living their life only to have it destroyed right before their eyes... it is heartbreaking. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to read something out of their comfort level or step out of the bubble of books you would usually read!"For you a thousand times over...."
What is next? I am not sure but I think I will grab something light hearted and this novel was written by a lady who was a reporter for Page 6 and has gotten wonderful reviews.... stayed tuned!

This will be part movie review and part of our experience watching this movie! First of all I thought this movie was a great concept and perfectly cast. It seems that Bradley Cooper is the Tom Cruise (circa Cocktail) of our time as far as the whole sexy comedies go! At times this movie did get a tad silly and over the top but now a days what movie doesn't try to push the limits. This is a movie about 4 guys who go to Vegas and wake up to missing teeth, a tiger and a baby in the closet!! Throughout the movie they try to unravel what happened the night before and find their friend before his wedding which is two days away. Matt & I both laughed out loud at this movie and decided that when this movie hits HBO it will be one we will prolly watch over and over. Now with that being said ...even though we went Saturday at like noon the crowd was filled with "those guys" who just idolize Bradly Cooper. This "crew" of wanna-be frat boys had running commentary about everything here is an example but imagine this laced with expletives "oh ya" "hahaha that is so us dude" " no way this rocks" oh ya it was that bad! They kind of ruined the mood for us and if it is possible made the movie less funny for us because I did not want to laugh when they did thus putting myself in their "group"! But anyways the point is if you don't mind nudity and the f-word said over and over (they could of done without that and it would of been just as funny) then you will laugh your butt off!
Now moving on to the random, some of you may know I have a girl crush on Megan Fox!! Here she is at the Transformers premiere in Japan and for real if I could wake up and look like anyone I would want to look like her... stupid tattoos and all!!! WOW!
And finally Happy 46th Birthday Johnny Depp! And if you ask me he keeps getting better with age!!!

This is Paris, she was my FAVORITE audition... if you don't remember her, she wore a bra top and a tutu and danced to an acoustic version of Britney Spears Toxic! It was so unique and so intoxicating I could not believe my eyes and I want to learn that dance! So.. "Go Paris"
