The contractions have started!


Today I sent the final print for my book, together with the ISBN application.

The contractions have started!

This baby should be BIRTHED within the next weeks, and the first copy should be in my hot little hands!

Hallejulah!

You can sign up in that sweet little box to your right if you would like to receive a birth announcement :).

Salute!

Women & Food

This afternoon, I spent 7 hours with a handful of women, making tamales.

None of us are of Latin heritage :).

None of us have ever made tamales.

We had a good fairy come to our rescue and show us how to roll the masa and fold that corn husk.

So we squished, rolled, patted, and folded our tamales, filling them with pork, chicken, pumpkin, cheese, and jalapenos. Separately, and all in that order. In the end, we had some excellent mystery tamales!

Aside from the great tamales that are now gracing my butt, and the fact that my children are sleeping rock hard from play exhaustion, I had the opportunity to meet 3 wonderful women, and reunite with 2 of my friends. We talked about everything from dogs, to kids, to business, to food, to us, to husbands, and back to us again while filling those tamales.

There is nothing better for the soul than good food, good women, and beer.

PRADA, anyone??

Are you wondering where I am hiding?

Unfortunately, not in Italy as the title may suggest.

I am hiding in the mysterious depths of our various closets. Though most things are going on Freecycle, there are a few items I am selling.

For instance, these PRADA shoes:


Prada on Ebay

I am really a boot girl, the funkier, the better, but these shoes stole my heart. But my feet are too small :(….and I look like Pippi trying to pull it off and wear them anyways.

And we also have some Cowboy Boots for the smaller horse or dog wranglers:

Cowboys on Ebay

Yippee!! Let the rodeo begin!
