Déjà vu

In our original “Howdy” post, ELC said Hubby had told her, when she sang her rendition of The Star-Spangled Banner for him a few months back, that she was “getting better.” Apparently he wasn’t exactly telling the truth. She recently received a Hallmark Shoebox card from him that had, on the front, a 60s-looking girl with uber big hair, in a mini dress, dancing. It said: “There’s an amount of wine that will make you say, ‘Damn, I’m a great dancer!’” BUT—with a black pen, Hubby crossed out dancer and wrote “singer.” Inside it said: “Please dance responsibly.” Again, he crossed out dance and wrote “sing.” ELC knows he was only kidding. He would never intentionally hurt her feelings. He’s a Good Man. She has, however, decided to put her dream of singing our National Anthem at a Texas Rangers’ or Dallas Cowboys’ ballgame on hold. It’s okay. She’s now looking for square dance lessons.

ELC has also bought a new diet book. See “The Next-To-The-Last-Diet-Book” post in January. The new one is: Eat This, Not That! No-Diet Diet by David Zinczenko with Matt Goulding. She loved that it said “No-Diet.” Awesome. She has purchased several of these books (you can get them for a great price at Costco!)—actually, this is her 5th. She truly does use them for finding healthier choices at not only the grocery store, but also restaurants—fast-food and chain. She has, however, lost no weight. Sigh. Her next diet book will probably be Mark MacDonald’s Body Confidence.

Check out the “Hand-Me-Downs” post in January. TLC has put in a picture of “Morty.” He found out Cobbler had a feature in the “I Love a Parade” post and had his feelings deeply hurt. Bless his little kitty heart.

The time is here: the time when TLC needed that new bathing suit(s). See “An Ode To Bathing Suits” in January. She and ELC went on a shopping trip a couple of weeks ago. Well, TLC called it “shopping.” ELC called it TORTURE. While TLC moaned, groaned and complained as she wiggled and jiggled into the prospective suits, ELC did her motherly duty of assuring her she did not look that “fluffy.” The Good News: TWO fabulous suits were purchased. She will look awesome in both with her eyelash extensions, fake tan and less jiggle-y body—thanks to Boot Camp.

We want to add three new fav colors to TLC’s “J’Adore OPI” post in January. They are from OPIs “Texas Collection” and are Austin-tatious Turquoise, I Vant to Be A-Lone Star (a pretty sky blue) and Do You Think I’m Tex-y?, a berry-pretty-corraly-orangey-reddish color. Try at least one, Y’all!

And we have now passed our Three-Month Anniversary! Woo Hoo!!! (See “It’s Our Anniversary!” in February.)

The President George Bush Tollway in Dallas is worse than ever. ELC can verify this, having traveled it many times during the “Weekend Shopping Torture Tour.” Construction everywhere. The very idea that we must pay to go turtle slow—even on weekends—is utterly ridiculous. See TLC’s “Hail to the Chief” post in February.

Regarding “In Like A Lion” on February 28th, it’s so windy here in Central Texas we have no hope of even April going “out like a lamb.” (We do, however, have a lot of new baby lambs and goats jumpin’ around the fields—adorable!) In fact, our TV weather peeps are saying these gale-force winds are here until June. SHEESH. It’s tres hard on our BIG HAIR.

ttfn, again!

(Get it? Déjà vu? Again? Never mind.)

Oh happy 3 month anniversary, Leighton girls! And thank you for bringing smiles to our days. We find you both 'tres entertaining'. (I'm channeling TLC with the french, here. Though I must admit it's the only french word I know. How sad)

Merci, Autumn! You are too sweet to us. You bring as many smiles to me and TLC (who, by the way, knows NO French--it's Google Translator! LOL).

Nous avons eu un dejeuner de plasir aujourd'hui, n'est-ce pas?

Hugs!!!
ELC
