There’s a card for that.

Just in case you aren’t sick of silly outtakes, here’s another shot from the famous photo shoot.  You know, the one where mom pretended to be Herb Ritz and I pretended to be Christie Brinkley but we’re both just really awkward….or at least I am.

I’ve changed clothes right in the middle of the mall parking lot wearing the Undress and no one had a clue.  It’s genius.  Go get one.

Yesterday, we went to pick out a card for a friend of mine who recently had surgery and I was getting all kinds of pissed off at the poor selection.  There were over 5,000 cards available.  Four were in the ‘Get Well Soon’ section.  FOUR.  But they had all kinds of cards for ‘congratulations on your recent coming out’, ‘welcome to your new gender’, ‘sorry to hear about the loss of your partner’s pet’,(not your pet mind you, but your partner’s pet!)

What the hell? What happened to the typical Happy Birthday, Get Well Soon and Across the Miles cards?  Where did they go?  Of course, just as I was bitching up a blue streak we came across the mack daddy of all cards.  It said, ‘Running is an Accomplishment, Congratulations on your recent race’.

No way!

A running card!  An actually congratulations on your race card!  When did they start printing running cards?  And then I looked at Mom and said the better question is ‘why have you never bought me one?’

Has anyone ever bought you a congratulations on your race card?

Did you know they had congratulations on your race cards?

 

 

A Rescue, Long Runs, The Undress and Bless Your Heart.

I know, I’m a little late with that promise.  The big discount and those Herb Ritz like pictures but we had a major event happening over here last Thursday.  A rescue.

MacGyver hired a few friends to help with the floor project because the den is huge and he didn’t want to tackle that project all on his own and apparently, he didn’t have all that much faith in my abilities, anyhow, we were all sitting out on the back lanai when a raven flew by with something in its talon and dropped it in the jacaranda tree and started pecking at it.  The screech was horrible.

Woody Jac

Meet Woody Jac.  He’s a red-bellied woodpecker.  He’s perfectly fine now.  MacGyver climbed into the jacaranda tree and rescued him.  The raven was mad pissed.  We weren’t able to re-nest him.  The nest is much too high up and even if we were able to get him in it, the raven kept circling and we were afraid it would take him again.  So, I guess I’m a mama to a red-bellied woodpecker now.

When he gets older he’ll look like this,

Right now he just eats and sleeps.  But because baby birds can’t drink water, he needs to eat quite frequently to keep from becoming dehydrated and I didn’t get a lot of sleep this weekend.  I feel like a new mom again.

I did manage to run 10 miles on Saturday and I had planned on running 10 more on Sunday but I stopped at 7.58 because I was tired as shit.  Having a newborn baby in the house wears you out regardless of the species.

Mom and I did manage to get those pictures though and you really need to take advantage of this offer because you have six days left.  THIRTY FIVE percent off!  That’s a heck of a deal.  The Undress is my favorite piece of clothing, because it gives me the ability to change clothes anywhere, even in public!   Check out the video of how it works here.

Mom and I started to take some really good pictures and I really wanted them to look professional so I tried to pose.

But Mom got a little trigger happy and snapped hit the camera too soon.  Great shot of the dress,  (and my hair.)  In fact I wish my hair looked this good all the time.  It doesn’t though.  It only looks this good when I’m on my way to get it cut.

(FYI, I take my bikini bottoms off at the beach and shake the rinse the sand out and put them back on and no one has a clue!  I can take them off right through the pockets.)

The is the only pose that I actually got but it’s blurry, I’m pretty sure I called that, anyway shortly after mom wanted me to do some ‘exercise posing’ whatever that is and that’s when things went a little crazy and the gut laughs started.

Mom and I did manage to get a little bit of shopping done this weekend, not much, but some.  Just enough for me to find the perfect coffee mug.

I’ve got to get some work done but I’ll post some better pictures of Woody Jac later in the week.  And maybe some more hilarious outtakes of the photo shoot mom and I tried to do and head on over to the Undress website this week and get your Undress before the code expires.  Use Flower35 for 35%off!

What did you do this weekend?

 

Retirement Tennis sounds sexy to me

My Mom is here!  And she has offered to help me take some photos so that I can show you a great product I have a limited discount for.  I’m going to show you those tomorrow.  Let’s hope they turn out.  My Mom is not exactly Herb Ritts.  Unless you’re a family member you probably don’t get that joke to put that into perspective, if you said to my mom, hey could you take a picture of me in front of the Grand Canyon?  She would take the picture and you might get a picture of a cloud and a tiny bit of your cowlick.  Yeah, she’s that good.  But hey, we got all night and I got lot’s of space on the iPhone so stay tuned for that big discount tomorrow.

Over the weekend I went running on the Legacy Trail in Nokomis through Osprey to Sarasota.  It’s a beautiful trail and I will never get tired of running it.  Never.  I’ve seen bobcats and a panther and alligators and all kinds of wildlife not to mention all the runners, walkers and bikers I’ve met.

During my long run this weekend there was a group of bikers and runners headed up by an older couple wearing some official looking gear, carrying all kinds of official looking equipment.  As I ran by the gentleman said to me, ‘great form, keep it up’.  It really made my day and seem to make the miles fly by.  That’s one of the reasons I love running down there.  It’s also one of the reasons that MacGyver and I eventually plan to retire there.  It’s one of a ton of things to do.  If you happen to see that gentleman at the eye doctor this week, tell him I said thanks.

Anyway, MacGyver and I were talking the other night and I said I was really excited about the day we retire and we can actually run and bike and swim and fish and anything else we want to do without having to worry about a schedule.  He agreed.  We also agree that we’ve chosen the perfect area to retire to.  And as it we needed any proof at all, the news came on and we saw this:

So see, we could also play tennis!

Where do plan to retire to?
