4 months to this exact date

just because i can be super lame about this whole thing, i decided to start a countdown for my upcoming vacation this year. i mean, come-on... when was the last time i went on vaca? that was October of 2006! so this vaca is LONG overdue.

so where are we goin this year?


i can't wait for the lights, the flair, the entertainment & the booze to keep me on my toes for six glorious days in the middle of the desert.

LAS VEGAS, here we come!!!!

so i say this

a beautiful and smart friend once said to me that to be strong does not necessarily mean that you have to stand on your own and hold your ground, but to be strong also means that you hold onto your beliefs and stay where you are and let life throw it's worse at you.

i believe her. because no matter what she thinks of herself, she IS strong. and whatever insecurities she has, i will be there to tell her otherwise.

so i say this now to her: you are beautiful, smart, wonderful and though you think you are not physically perfect, it is in those imperfections that we find the YOU who is standing in front of us, a loyal friend, a lending ear, and shoulder to cry on. and though you think less of yourself, i personally think the world of you, because it is in your vulnerability that i find your strength emerging, a quiet confidence that though you may not notice, we see based on your decisions and actions.

so walk with pride and with your chin up. no one will ever be able to hurt you with their words anymore. especially if you believe in yourself.

me likes...

i just happen to luck out at work and was able to snag two tickets to tonight's Michael Buble concert. i think it's safe to say that we all know him because of "Home" but that concert blew my mind. he was a charming crooner who knocked my socks off. i especially loved the fact that half the songs he sang were music i grew up with and was able to sing along to. i decided to take my mom to this event and she was in awe of his musical talent. if i say i heart Buble, times that by 10 and that's her.

at times like these, i miss the fact that i used to sing.
