She does the HANKY PANKY!!

Who you ask??

My friend Erin at Blue-Eyed Bride :) She is having an awesome, HANKY PANKY, Valentines giveaway!! She's giving away Hanky Panky gift set from Nordstrom. So go over and check her out and enter this FABULOUS giveaway!!

Girls, I want to say thank you so much for all of your kind words and comments yesterday and today!! You really made me feel better!! I am so blessed to "know" each and every one of you!! I know my husband doesn't understand this, but I truly consider you all great friends!! One day I hope to meet every single one of you (Hey-it COULD happen!) :)

I am having another crazy busy day... not much excitement going on over here so I will leave you with this, it's appropriate after yesterday ... (it sent tears running down my face-simply HYSTERICAL)

"Negative People"
This is something to think about when negative people are doing their best to rain on your parade. So remember this story the next time someone who knows nothing, and cares less, tries to make your life miserable.

A woman was at her hairdresser's getting her hair styled for a trip to Rome with her husband. She mentioned the trip to the hairdresser, who responded:

" Rome ? Why would anyone want to go there? It's crowded and dirty. You're crazy to go to Rome . So, how are you getting there?"

"We're taking Continental," was the reply. "We got a great rate!"

"Continental?" exclaimed the hairdresser. " That's a terrible airline. Their planes are old, their flight attendants are ugly, and they're always late. So, where are you staying in Rome?"
"We'll be at this exclusive little place over on Rome 's Tiber River called Teste."
"Don't go any further. I know that place. Everybody thinks its gonna be something special and exclusive, but it's really a dump, the worst hotel in the city! The rooms are small, the service is surly,and they're overpriced.So, whatcha' doing when you get there?"
"We're going to go to see the Vatican and we hope to see the Pope."
"That's rich," laughed the hairdresser. "You and a million other people trying to see him. He'll look the size of an ant. Boy, good luck on this lousy trip of yours. You're going to need it."
A month later, the woman again came in for a hairdo. The hairdresser asked her about her trip to Rome .

"It was wonderful," explained the woman, "not only were we on time in one of Continental's brand new planes, but it was overbooked, and they bumped us up to first class. The food and wine were wonderful, and I had a handsome 28-year-old steward who waited on me hand and foot. And the hotel was great! They'd just finished a $5 million remodeling job, and now it's a jewel, the finest hotel in the city. They, too, were overbooked, so they apologized and gave us their owner's suite at no extra charge!"
"Well," muttered the hairdresser, "that's all well and good, but I know you didn't get to see the Pope."
"Actually, we were quite lucky, because as we toured the Vatican, a Swiss Guard tapped me on the shoulder, and explained that the Pope likes to meet some of the visitors, and if I'd be so kind as to step into his private room and wait, the Pope would personally greet me.
Sure enough, five minutes later, the Pope walked through the door and shook my hand! I knelt down and he spoke a few words to me."
"Oh, really! What'd he say ?"

He said: "Where'd you get the shitty Hairdo?"

Katy said...

That was really funny.

It reminded me of this waitress we had a few weeks ago. To begin with she was horrible- slow, messed up orders, etc. Then she started talking about how one of the other waitresses had left to do missionary work in Peru. She then said "I don't know why she would want to do that... there's nothing but POOR people there." I wanted to reach across the table and slap her silly.
