Yes...Ozzy, Sharon, Kelly, and Jack. All goldfish, but 2 are black and 2 are gold. We bought four because of the four of us, but didn't want to name them after us because of the whole "goldfish turnover rate"...LOL.
When we brought it all home, the hubs went to putting it all together. It was not a 5 minute ordeal either. It took both us a couple of hours...filling tank, putting in all the "crap" they need, balancing the water, etc...just to set it up. We had fun doing it, but now I can't wait for the kiddos to see it. Countdown for that ...is on!

That's not today's topic though. Today's topic is brought to you by Alex Trebek and his smarminess that is thrown around all over that game show stage he takes so eagerly every night at 7:30 pm. Spoonerisms.
I have certification to teach middle school Language Arts so I am quite aware of spoonerisms, but come on Alex don't stand there and grimace when no one knows the answer of who the frig the subject gets it's name for...technically, I think Sylvester the Cat suffered from this affliction, but I am suppose to know about Rev. William Archibald Spooner and his inability to speak and his common "syllable mix-up" of words.
According to my friends over at wiki, Rev. Spooner is really only associated with one true "syllable mix-up", the rest may have been made up by coworkers and students as a pastime. Ah, but does it matter. To be honest, I just like the word spoonerism. It's almost as fun as onomatopoeia...but I'll save that lesson for another day.

He loves it all. (Well, I probably couldn't get him to sit and watch the National Cheerleading competition, but he would watch the UK cheerleaders do their routine...LOL.) Yet, he has never been to a game.
Problem solved. This year, for some reason, he has been given multiple sets of game tickets. I mean, we literally have to clear our schedule for several weekends in October and November. All because he's nice. Yep, nice. When people need help, and as long as he can do whatever they may need, he does. Isn't that sweet?
I am excited for him like I would be for one of the girls to see Wicked (...and I'm trying to make that happen in New Orleans--April of next year.) Anyway, I'm not just excited for him. I'm excited for us because we get to share it together and I love being married to my best friend--one of the biggest UK fans I know.

Someone share the love.
How the heck do you get tickets to a Steelers games without selling your organs?
I have been trying all day to get my hubs tickets for a home game(birthday present)...
the closest I got was a $99 "tailgating" ticket...$99...to tailgate!!!!
I guess, unless you are season ticket holder,
these tickets are only available in one place...YOUR DREAMS.
Sorry, honey. I'll try again next year!

I bet you have no idea who Steven Zirnkilton is, but I , also, bet you have heard his voice many times. Steven is an actor who gave voice to all opening themes from the four series of the Law & Order franchise. (...and that's your fun, little Google fact for the day.)
With the hubs out of town for a race this weekend, I plan on hearing Steven's voice a lot! I like to think that I have seen more than 75% of all L&O episodes, but it seems every time my DVR catches one on Sleuth...it's one I've never seen. I love me some Jack McCoy, but I am in love with Detective Robert Goren...Bobby from Criminal Intent. I know it's only acting, but I love his character. How awful, in my beautiful L&O mind, it would be to meet the guy who plays him, Vincent D' Onofrio, and him be...well, you know...average!
I guess it's a good thing that I will probably never meet him...LOL. Gotta go. DVR is calling!

I went to a church in Lexington this weekend and LOVED it.
It' s called Crossroads Christian Church.
It was simple and spiritual. I walked away with God's message, but not scared of burning in a fiery hell...full of hope.
I wanted to come home and read the Bible AND share the message with my husband...with anyone that would listen really...LOL.
I am so glad for my salvation. I am so glad for my children's salvation. I will continue to pray for my husband's salvation...baby steps...little bitty baby steps. :o)
If you would like to find out more about Crossroads Church, check out their website: http://www.xroadschurch.org/

The best part was baking these monkey cupcakes for the actual party on Sunday at Jacobson Park. I just wanted to share with you my, I mean, our accomplishment. Gin, Mary and I were so proud of ourselves...you'd thought we cured cancer. Ahhh, not this time, but maybe next...LOL.
Happy Birthday, Caden-pooh!

Invite friends over, chat about our dull lives, talk about the weather, gossip and eat...who could ask for anything more?
Years ago, I had the opportunity to go to tea with my lil' sister (in my Mardi Gras group), Sonda. It was such a lovely experience. All of us, big sisters and little sisters, dressed up in our best clothes many of us wearing our hats...aahhh, some of my best New Orleans memories seem like just yesterday.
Oh...I digress, back to the tea. I love the simplicity of throwing a tea party...finger sandwiches, scones or muffins or cookies or petit fours (Can you tell I like the dessert aspect of it?), and tea. Voila'. You have a tea party menu from start to finish. Now, decorate according to theme and invite the peeps...it's tea party time!
