Nothing Quite Like Sending My Photo to Random Strangers....

soooo...my son wanted to test out why he wasn't receiving photo messages on a different phone no. than he normally uses. He messaged me to send a photo to a specific number.

I sent a photo of his dear old mom, i.e. me - three times - and got a response back "Who is this?" - It appears he texted me the wrong phone number - meaning I have sent a photo of myself three times to a random stranger who probably thinks I am interested in them grumpy emoticon 

Next time I revert back to sending cat photos.. update: VC messaged me back: "that should be my phone XD; sorry if it wasn't XDDD; Lol make a new friend"

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!! :)

*PS: I have an awesome giveaway of a necklace going on here.

Acting for Dummies

So I have been taking an acting class - for fun- the past couple of months.

And let me tell you, it is a lot more complex than it seems. Hoping I pull it all together for when we present to the other students on the 14th...

The class is the Meisner Technique. It involves repetition exercises - and as such would appear very bizarre to those not familiar with the method. I was struggling a bit and felt I might need to transfer to Acting for Dummies, but I had a big breakthrough this week and my scene partner and I rocked it lol.

It is funny the twists and turns life takes. When I was a child I was so painfully shy that I had a hard time speaking in front of anyone. Fast forward to now and in middle age I am studying acting.

What are you trying in middle age that you would have been fearful to attempt at a younger age??? A new class? A new hobby? A new attitude? I'd love to hear.....

A Review: Aurorae Yoga Sport Bag

I love, love, love to walk. There is a walking trail a few miles from my house, so I frequently meet up with a walking buddy (I have several on call lol) -- and by the time I walk from my house to meet them, to the trail and back, I have done a full 7 miles!! Tired of the flimsy string pack I usually use to carry my wallet, phone, water bottle, tissues, etc., today I tried Aurorae's Yoga Sport Bag. Here I am headed out down my driveway...
...and then on to the walking trail on this beautiful fall day. I am bundled up as usual even thought the temperature was about sixty lol
I have to say the bag came in handy!! And my friend thought it was a great looking bag...

**I realized after I got home that I should have adjusted the bag so that it was higher on my body. It can be easily tightened up. For those who intend to use it go go to yoga, there is an attachment to hold a rolled up yoga mat.

Aurorae sells the best reviewed yoga mats, yoga apparel,and yoga and meditation accessories online. You can browse their yoga mats, yoga bags, yoga apparel and other yoga accessories here.

Getting Nostalgic

As I prepare for an upcoming BIG high school reunion, I have been digging through old photos. Here is one from 1984...Very eighties. From the perm to the tail ;-)

My mom, who never even permed her own hair - permed mine and my sister took the photo. My face is swollen from a trip to Virginia Beach - bad sunburn...

#fbf me in 1984. Who else had a tail? #eightieshair

But seriously, the eighties were great!!!!  Miss the fun of dressing up eighties style...

Darn You Netflix!!!

I always scoffed at those who binge watched TV shows, and then my acting instructor (yes, I am taking lessons for fun) - recommended House of Cards. So I ordered Netflix and proceeded to watch all 39 episodes in a week and a half.

It was not a very productive week.

Always enjoying a good comedy, and a fan of Tina Fey, I have now started on The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. It is so ludicrous that it works.

And apparently I am also very easily amused. Last night's episode (still on season 1) had Titus going to the ATM to withdraw the remaining $2.00 in his account. Yet the fee was $3.00 - so the machine kicked out a negative $1.00 ... an hour later I was still giggling...and this is not subtle humor lol.

What is your latest Netflix obsession???

Well, I'm No Denise Austin, That's For Sure!

I have been working out to the same DVD for over a year now. Do you ever notice those exercisers in workout videos who can do leg extensions or sit-ups with their legs straight up in the air??? Um, yeah, that is SO NOT ME!!

Very frustrating. And what is also scary is that I sometimes sway side to side on the balancing on one foot exercises.

That is not a good sign as I approach a huge milestone birthday in a couple years.

Hope it is not a sign of senility, as we have already discovered I am sometimes ready to enter the wrong car in the parking lot!!
