I so cannot wait to see Eclipse 6/30!!

Is it ok to be vain?

Yesterday princess had to go across the street to a friend's house just to ask her a question. So she is upstairs for like a half hour, and finally she comes downstairs w/ like a whole matching set on, sweet smelling lotion and her hair combed out. When she left my husband says that she is too stuck on herself, and what can we do to break her out of the habit of wanting to look her best at all times. Well somebody around here needs to look good, cause it sure isn't me! I think it's normal for girls her age to want to look nice, I did once upon a time before I had kids, worked a real job and decided to get married and lose my self esteem(lol) I'd rather she'd looked like a girl than a girl who wants to look like a boy!


Should women drive?

I am a firm believer that whenever you and your husband, boyfriend, fiance' etc., are out together, he should be the one to drive. Now in my case my husband nags alot about my driving, he thinks women by nature are not good driver's. I hate that whenever I drive, he acts like he has brakes on the passenger side. So whenever we are together I make him drive just so I can ride in peace.

White Wine Sangria with Summer Peaches, Strawberries, Oranges and Lemons
1 pint strawberries , hulled and halved lengthwise
2 oranges , sliced into 1/4-inch-thick rings
2 lemons , sliced into 1/4-inch-thick rings
3 peaches , pitted and cut into 8 wedges
3 bottles white wine (dry to semidry), such as Pinot Grigio or Chardonnay

Place all fruit in a large pitcher or bowl, add wine and allow to sit at room temperature 4 to 24 hours. When ready to serve, add sparkling water and ice. Serve in a bowl with a ladle (make sure there's fruit in every serving).
Why is that whenever I send my husband to the store, he always forgets something. What was the purpose of him demanding a list. And his favorite line is, "oh they didn't have that." And explain to me why if he has been to the store multiple times, he always calls asking what aisle something is in! And another thing why are men so scared to use a coupon, I mean that just totally blows me away. He will be first one complaining at the end of the month, when there is only a little bit of extra cash leftover after the bills are paid, and I will remind him that he should have used those coupons!
