If you know my mom...

...then you know that I really need no explanation. In most ways, I am truly a carbon copy of the crazy lady. Things I got from Mom: 

my red hair
my inability to say "no"
my tendency to take on too much responsibility because I know only I can do things the exact way I have pictured in my mind
my flights of fancy
my sarcastic sense of humor and quirky personality
my love of being the center of attention
my love of quiet solitude
my passion for reading, but only if it's good, intelligent writing
my obsession with proper grammar, capitalization, punctuation, and spelling
my refusal to tolerate ignorance
 my love of cooking (and drinking)
my overuse of ... but nothing else more perfectly represents my shifts between my random thoughts!
 my great taste in all things
my love of great music...mostly nothing after 1980
And the list goes on and on...

But today she and I entered into a thread of emails that had me laughing hysterically at my computer while my kiddos worked on a semester exam review. I couldn't stop laughing because it was one more thing that proved how much I'm like her! If the threads weren't labeled, you could truly not be able to tell which one of us is saying what.

Mom: They just had a spot on "Today" about Prince Harry playing polo. As part of the spot they had a famous polo player (who also happens to be the Polo model) and "oh, my..." Forget baseball players! His name is Nacho Piedras (sp?) and all that can be said is "oh, my..." :)
Misc. Redhead: Haha...Nacho...I guess you could look past the name if he's that cute! :)
Mom: Oh, trust me - you could look past a lot of things...except, maybe, that wedding ring on his left hand. Then again... :)
Misc. Redhead: Shame on you!! ;)
Mom: I know you can't do YouTube at school but when you get home check out Nacho Figueras. He's got a couple YouTube spots and then you might be planning a trip to Argentina! Oh, my... :) I googled (and ogled :) ) him to send you a picture and the YouTube spots were the "best" - as if there could be a worst. :) !

How hip is she? She is adept at YouTube, and she uses "google" as a verb. I love her.

Now that I've piqued your interest, here's a little taste of heaven. You probably don't remember when I dyed my hair dark for the shoot because I quickly went back to red. Enjoy!


  1. I'm ready for you to start school to have fun stories to post again! ;)
