Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

Random Thoughts

I decided yesterday that Wednesdays are ME days. Hubster and the kids head out to church for dinner, choir practice and youth activities around 4:45 and don't come home until after 8:00. YeeHah! The kids have been going with the In-laws for a while but Hubster just started participating a couple weeks ago. It's a great mid-week refresher. Yesterday I decided to treat myself to a wonderful NY Strip with some sauteed veggies and a wonderful Crane Lake Malbec. I fixed my food and enjoyed uninterrupted grown up TV for 2 hours. It was Great!

I'm a little disappointed with Americas choice to send Alexis home on American Idol. I really thought she was the strongest girl and would have loved to see Megan or Scott go home. I have my opinions but do not vote, so I can only expect so much. On that note. The judges now have the opportunity to SAVE one contestant. They make it sound like it will totally depend on one performance. If they hated the song choice from the night before, how confident can a performer be singing the same song that put them on the chopping block to begin with. Is this "save" going to be used on someone who picked the right song and forgets the words? I'll be interested to see if it gets used.

I made a video of my new wine opener in use but am having difficulties getting it to load. When you see it you'll be running to get one for yourself, I'm sure!

Got another cool "toy". If you look over in the sidebar I've added Natalie MacLean's Food/Wine Pairing widget. You can type in a food or a wine and find what would go best with it. Try it out! It offers thousands of pairings and you may find some surprises.


  1. We all need a night to ourselves. I don't get those often! I have my baby girl so she is always with me. haha It's my own choice though. Truth be told I take her everywhere with me because I miss her too much. =/

  2. I was surprised that they didn't save Alexis :(

    New wine opener sounds cool... can't wait to see the video!

  3. I'm party hopping! Hope to see you at my party!

    As a huge wine lover, I love your header!

  4. That steak sound delicious! Whenever I have one (which has been many months), I like to saute mushrooms. It's making me hungry just thinking about it.
    I also wanted to let you know that you have won a major award! The red carpet is rolled-out and the cameras are rolling, so please drop by my site to pick it up.


Thanks for stopping by. Let me know you were here.
