This evening's menu should be a doozy. In honor of the Hill's finale and MTV Movie Awards I'm having the girls over and snackages will include: meatballs, chicken wings, buffalo chicken dip (please, Kik's), and wine. Lerve. We're so healthy. Although some of my blogger friends have expressed their lack of concern/care for anything celebrity (which is okay) I am the exact opposite. Sorry. I love celebrities and the crazy train they ride everyday. Pure entertainment, folks. So, as you can imagine, I am super-pumped about the MTV Awards show tonight. It's an event in the Mosely home. My husband is OVER it and I'm a dork. Hehe.
We leave for Biloxi Tuesday and I am looking so forward to it. I have never gambled before so I'm pretty excited. Adam's real scared.......

In other exciting news, I read today that there is going to be a remake of the movie, "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun." Holy shiz! Love it. Do ya'll remember that movie? You know, the movie that had Sarah Jessica, Helen Hunt, Shannen Doherty, the cute boyfriend that could dance his sleeveless tank-top ass off?? That's it. Probably one of my fave movies of all time. Couldn't be more excited about this news. I wonder if they're casting extras......hmmmmmm........
As a side note, I broke out the bikini today. I've only wore the tankini for a couple of weeks, but I just can't do it anymore, friends! This white stomach needs a tan! I know there's some gorgeous abs beneath this flab.....I will find them one day. ;)

So, I've got to bring up the fact that New Moon spoiler pics have been released today and boyfriend is looking HAWT. I mean, what am I to do with myself until this movie comes out??? So effing' excited.
As far as celebrity gossip goes right now, here's my take:
- Kris Allen won. There's nothing else to say, but that he won. Yes, Adam Lambert was fantastic......but Kris Allen won. Move on. Adam Lambert already has and is back dressing like a drag queen (hehe-kidding!)
- Jon & Kate are over. Jon cheated. Kate's not nice (to put it mildly). Is that a good reason? No, cheating is never the answer. But, both of these people need to give it up and focus on their 8 precious children. Over it!
- Melissa Joan Hart looks fantastic. You go girl!
- I kinda want to start watching The Hills again since Kristen Cavallari is back. No, I never liked her that much, but she brings the drama. Love it!
- Tori & Dean are back- yay!!!!
- And most importantly.........the MTV VMA's come on Sunday night and lover will be there. Red carpet coverage to follow........

Something interesting happened to me today at work. It’s pretty darn hilarious, as a matter of fact. Let me preface this by saying, sometimes when washing clothes, underwear, etc. I throw items in the dryer without going through and separating them like I should (this is mainly when I’m feeling lazy). So, as I was washing and drying clothes Sunday I took a big load and plopped them into the dryer without giving it a second look. Cut to as I am folding clothes last night I see that I threw my favorite bra into the dryer, instead of letting it air dry like I normally do. Anyway, so I go to work this morning (wearing my favorite bra) and am going about my business, when SPLIT! My bra broke. Seriously, the bra is broken. The girls came out for a visit. No, I don’t wear those bras that fasten in the front (I can’t stand them!). The brassiere is broken. I had to leave work and go back home- thank God I live a little over five minutes away! Normally, the bra breaking apart would lead me to having a slight depression about putting on the LB’s, but I know that can’t be it. I have been strictly sticking to Weight Watchers (I mean, it’s so strict that I went to Olive Garden for lunch yesterday and ordered the soup, salad, and bread sticks as my entree-no seafood alfredo for me!). I am blaming the wardrobe malfunction on my dryer. Let’s just say it shrank……it better have anyway.
So, my Memorial Day holiday was amazingly great. I spent the afternoon with my mom and got to see two of my favorite people in the world, Elizabeth and Michelle. I had not seen Michelle in years, and I just have to say that you know a friendship is a true friendship when you can see someone for the first time in forever, and it feels like you just talked to them the day before.
I have a short week this week- yay! Then, it’s off to
Sunday, May 24, 2009
The Pre-Memorial day shindig at our friends house turned out to be a great time, yesterday! The sun actually came out for a couple of hours and I got somewhat of a tan. I was, however, in the bed by 8 pm that night. Between the Pina Coladas, Strawberry Daquiris, Watermelon-Vodka boat, I was in sleepyland by 8:30. I know, I'm such a party animal. Hehe.
All I've got to say is thank God for short weeks.
Oh yeah, the birthday is exactly 17 days away. Woot Woot!
Saturday, May 23, 2009
As a side note, I've lost 3 pounds so far!! Woohoo! Weight Watchers is working.......or maybe it's just water weight. Hehe. Whatev. Loving it.
Friday, May 22, 2009
He's so yummy. It also doesn't hurt that Joshua Jackson, and Josh Hartnett are also in this video. I'm just sayin'.........
I promise a more substantial post later on today.
Wednesday, May 20, 2009
Okay, I swear this is the last Rpatz post for the week. He's just looking too damn hot in France right now. I want to go to Cannes!!!
Crazy, busy day today. I'm exhausted. Off to fix an egg salad sandwich and a glass of wine. Such a great combo, huh?
Tuesday, May 19, 2009
Have all my Twilight peeps seen the New Moon poster?? If not, here it is.
Hot damn! LOVE IT! Just the sight of boyfriend makes me so happy. He’s delicious.
I can proudly say that I have now stuck with Weight Watchers for exactly a week now! Friends, I have not dedicated myself like this to Weight Watchers since 2001 when I became OBSESSED with the program and became obnoxiously psycho about food. I just hope I can stick to this plan. It would really be nice to lose 10-15 LB’s. I haven’t weighed in yet; that white Fred’s scale scares the shit out of me. Judgment day is Saturday…..we’ll see then.
BTW, is there anyone out there who is a Real Housewives fan? If so, have you started watching the new season in
Sorry this blog is all over the place. As you can see, I have nothing of extreme importance going on in my life right now. My dad leaves in 2 ½ weeks for a war zone so I’ll pretty much take any dramatic, over-the-top, crazy-ass television show to get my mind off of the more serious things. Between vacay in two weeks, and birthday (the big 2-7) in three weeks I’m hanging by a string.
Toodles for now!
Monday, May 18, 2009
Not much else to post on today, friends. I have a crazy week ahead of me (Thank God it's Memorial Day weekend). My boss will be out of town so that leaves me running things around the office. Vacay is two weeks away and I couldn't be more excited. I am reading Bethany Frankel's book Naturally Thin and I have to say, it's pretty darn good. She is pretty much telling you how to eat without dieting. However, I am sticking with Weight Watchers. Maybe the bikini dream for Summer 2009 isn't so far-fetched........guess we'll see.
Saturday, May 16, 2009
Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! It's rainy down here in Macon, but I don't really care. I kind've love it. I have been so, completely lazy today. Adam and I went out for Mexican last night with friends, I drank a margarita, came home, and was passed out asleep by 9 pm. I slept until 7 am this morning, got up, and snuggled on the couch with a cup of coffee, Sophie May, and Marley and Me (the movie). Good God, I will never watch that movie again. I haven't cried that hard since Romeo and Juliet (the Leo years). I was literally sobbing, holding Sophie, sobbing, hugging Adam, sobbing. Ridiculous. Never again.
Off to hang out with the in-laws. Fun times!
Friday, May 15, 2009
Did ya'll watch Grey's last night? Oh my gawd. I seriously cannot cry one more tear over that show! For those of you that watch Grey's, but still have yet to watch the season finale, WATCH IT. I won't offer any spoilers, but I will say that I have considered Prozac after the hot mess of a state that show left me in last night. Ready for So You Think You Can Dance, peeps!
I want to give a blog shout-out to one of my besties, Brooke. She is in Miami recovering from major heart surgery right now. Brooke- I love you and I'm so proud of you for being so brave! Can't wait to see you next week. Lerve!
This weekend should be pretty good. Adam's dad and step mom are in town from Winston-Salem, NC. We rarely get to see them, so when they're in town it's a big deal. I really am so lucky to have such great in-laws. Anyway, I am posting a picture of me, Mika (Adam's step-mom), and my sis-in-law, Rachel at Christmas dinner this past year. Mika is so freakin' precious.......and, she makes the world's best sushi.
Ready for some sun, folks! Praying for a J-Lo tan........wish me luck.

So, today started out good. It's hump day, I am still reveling in the fact that this teacher dream just might happen, we have a not-so-busy weekend planned which makes this girl very happy, and I thought I looked pretty darn cute in my grey skirt, white button-down, and heels. Cut to 1:30 this afternoon: I get home from lunch (Adam is already home for the day), and dishes are piled up in the sink, the trash needs to be taken out, and Adam's dirty plate is on our coffee table. He, in the meantime, was showering. Well, shit hits the roof. Adam gets out of the shower and I go off on him. I then cleaned up the mess myself, and then left to go back to work early from lunch. Basically, to pass the time before I went back into the office, I sat in my car and did a People crossword puzzle while crying like an idiot. Once I got back into the office, I promptly went down to the snack machine and got the white-cheddar flavored popcorn and Coke Zero. What a nutritious lunch, huh? Adam later called and said that if I would have given him a chance to clean up (he had just gotten home and gotten in the shower at the time that I arrived for lunch break) all of the things that I made "such" a big deal over would have been taken care of. Whatev. Now, several hang-ups and screaming later we are a-okay. Marriage. It's just so fun. I'm drinking tonight.
BTW, does anyone know if Bethany Frankel's new book, "Naturally Thin" is any good? I'm considering making that purchase. I saw pictures of me today from the Susan G Komen Race for the Cure, and let's just say I should have ran that race.........and continued running after the race was over. Not good, friends. Not good.
Tuesday, May 12, 2009
Wow. Today has been a crazy, but good today. The good (well, more like GREAT) news is that……drum roll, please…….I passed the writing assessment to get into graduate school at Georgia College and State University!! Woohoo!!!!! I’m basically trying to get into a MAT (Master’s of Art in Teaching) program and passing that assessment was my first step. I'm so excited! I have literally had a perma-grin on my face all day. Yay!
Anyway, so I wore a black cardigan and brown heels today. WTF? Major fashion faux pas. I’ve been living on this side of crazy all day today. I’m so ready for vacay that I can’t function. We will be in
I’m back on Weight Watchers…..uhhhhhh. I have pretty much used all of my “bonus points” today. I guess when you decide that you want some BK Ham Shots for breakfast and fried chicken for lunch you’re cutting it close. I seriously have Kardashian ass today. Oh well. I guess it’s me, the treadmill, and Lil Kim’s “Jump Off” tonight. Sooooo looking forward to it……..

I have worn my VS stretchy pants all weekend!! This is not a good thing, friends. Flashback: Friday night, my mother and I go out to dinner. We get back to mom's house around 9 pm. Do I call friends to let them know I'm in town and do they want to meet up for a drink? No, I come home, put on the stretchy pants and read the latest edition of US Weekly (btw, Jon Gosselin so cheated- hate this because I'm a Jon & Kate fan myself). Saturday: friends and I wake up at the crack of dawn (5:30 AM....uhhhhh) to drive up to Atlanta for the Susan G Komen Race for the Cure. I feel proud of myself and very skinny after the race after walking 4 miles (I say 4 because it was at least a mile-long walk back to the car). Do I go out and rock a super cute and sexy dress and show off my super cute and sexy hubby? Nope. The stretchy pants come back on, the Thai food is delivered, The Best of the Eagles is playing on the Bose, and I am all settled in with a Madras. Life is good. Poor Adam. I think he really wants to burn the stretchy pants. Oh well.
I hope to post pics later on today of me and the girlfriends at the race. We had so much fun! I was so emotional during the race to watch all these brave women that have battled breast cancer cross that finish line. I'm not gonna lie, I probably cried like 5 times. To see men running in the race with signs on their backs that said "In memory of Mom." Wow. Tear. So amazing. I can't wait to be a part of this wonderful tradition every year. And hanging out with my best girlfriends- nothing can touch that. All in all, superb weekend. Now, if only I can wean myself off of the stretchy pants......

A couple of thoughts for the weekend:
- Did you see Grey's last night?? OMG!!! I'm still crying! If you're interested, check this out.
- Feast your eyes on the new Captain Kirk..........I'm no Star Trek fan, but I might be watching to see this hottie!
BTW, this is sooooo me tomorrow afternoon:

Have a great Mother's Day weekend, friends!!
Wednesday, May 6, 2009
Did ya'll watch AI last night? OMG- Adam rocked the house with "Whole Lotta Love" didn't he?? Wow. You know, I have been on the fence with him ever since the show started, but I have to say he won me over last night. I mean, anyone who's gonna sing "Zep" (as my oh so cool dad refers to Led Zeppelin- he pretty much ingrained the love of "Zep" into me at the age of seven) like Robert Plant deserves the AI crown. Dontcha' think? Lerve. I'm disappointed Matt Giraud and his hunky piano moves aren't there anymore, but oh well. I can always relive "Human Nature" through youtube.
Mother's Day is this weekend, friends. Surprisingly, I have already bought Mother's Day presents for the mom and the mom-in-law. I got their gifts at Ulta after work today, while a tornado was just a brewing outside. Of course this would be the day that I chose to wear my nice, khaki pants and brown flats to work. I was soaked when I left and not happy about it. But, I do have Mother's Day gifts and that is one less thing I have to worry about when I wake up Sunday morning. Yay. In honor of mom's day I am posting a picture of my mama, my sister, and myself on Easter:
This is like our favorite picture right now, because every one has their eyes open. Hehe!
BTW, I'm doing the Susan G Komen race in Atlanta this weekend. The following are the reasons why I am most excited about participating in this race:
- I am walking for my grandmother, and all of my other friends and loved ones that are dealing/or have fought this horrible disease.
- I get a super-cute pink t-shirt to wear (and ya'll know how much I love pink)!
- I am eating nothing but bad shit all week. I'm talking Chick-fil-a, Burger King, Panera Bread, you name it because I will be walking it off (or planning to anyway) during the race- woohoo!!
Tuesday, May 5, 2009
Ummmm........no thank you.
Just had to comment, ya'll. I mean, if you're gonna go to the Costume Institute Gala at the Met wouldn't you bring it like Miz Biel:
JT looking a bit nerdy, but that's okay.......

Cinco de Mayo has not been so festive for me today, that is for sure. I still plan on having a margarita tonight, though. Hmmm.....maybe two. Hell, I think maybe the hubster and I need to go out for Cinco de Mayo. This day obviously isn't gonna get any better. I hope everyone else has enjoyed their Mexican holiday!! Here's to happier days tomorrow. Cheers!
Vacay is in 3 weeks. Lord, please let me make it.........

Time for a bubble bath. Catch you tomorrow!
Sunday, May 3, 2009
Thanks everyone who commented on the bathing suit options! I began my swimsuit search at Kohl's yesterday. The "cute" pink one I posted Friday- not so much. More like trashtastic cuteness, if you get my drift. In my opinion, there wasn't much of a one-piece selection at Kohl's, which I'm surprised about considering all of the cute, fun, and stylish apparel that they carry. Hmmmmmm.......might check back with them later. I then made a trip to Dillard's (so should not have gone there). Yes, they had adorable bathing suits, and yes, their bathing suits were $65 and up. No thank you. I'm pretty positive I could get something just as cute at Marshall's for 20 bucks. I will probably be making a trip to Target this week, too. You can always count on some fantastic finds there. We'll see........
Tomorrow the new exercise regimen starts up! I have a spinning class tomorrow and Wednesday night after work which I'm super pumped about. Tuesday, Thursday's, and Friday's it's me and the treadmill at it again. I will drop 8 LB's by the end of May dammit. Wish me luck!
Friday, May 1, 2009
Love the yellow. I'll totally look like the model wearing this: boobs and all! Haha.......
So, before my transformation into Marisa Miller (ha!), I want to get a really, really cute one-piece just to hide the tummy a bit. What do you think?? I've been scouring the web, and these are just a few of my adorable one-piece finds:
This one (on the right) is from the Candies line at Kohl's. I think it's super-cute and fun. Plus, it's pink. And ya'll know how much I love pink!
This one is a monokini from Dillard's. I dunno. Kinda cute? Kinda trashy? You be the judge. Probably would need to try it on to see.......
I LOVE this one. I actually think this one of my favorite. Loving the "zebra" look.
What do you think, blog friends?? I'm going shopping this weekend so I've gotta get some feedback!
