Have you missed me???? Well, I've missed myself in this blogosphere but am so proud of Housewife for taking charge and gaining us new bloggy friends, and another open letter, I won't ask the question again, but it IS christmas in May. What is better than a good open letter from my Housewife when I have been absent and without internet access for four whole days?! Nothing, I tell ya.

But our commenting number has skyrocketed! Cheers to all of you for stopping by, and we will for surely visit each one of your sites very soon. It is definately going to take me a while to catch up on all my reading and commenting, but I will... and that's a Career Woman promise. However, let me explain to you where I have been and what I have been doing for the last four days...

As most of you know, come this friday, I will be un-employed, which isn't so bad now that I think of it, because before I start my new job - I'll have a lot of time to do some good wedding planning, school work, and duh - tanning. So I decided that in such a case, I should take a vacation day last friday so I did. Pumpkinface's sister and I went bridesmaid dress shopping on Friday. I dropped $200 on that dress - but well worth it, because I will look gorgeous! :) On Saturday morning, I went dress shopping with K-Pac for her bridesmaid dress - another $200, but again, very well worth it because I love her and our weddings, and our dresses. I will look absolutely stunning in aqua - this I know, for sure.

Saturday night was Rascal Flatts!!!!!!!!!!!!!! For those of you who are new to us, I love myself some Rascal Flatts. Pumpkinface surprised me with tickets a couple months ago and took the day off work - just to make me happy to squeeme over my boys. Does he love me or what? When I got back from dress shopping, Pumpkinface, me, Jamie, and Eric and Eric's cousin and brother and his girlfriend (phew - I am tired from typing all that), we went shopping for grub and alcohol and off to the concert we went. Well for those of you who were familiar with the North East this weekend - it was a parade of rain and downpours. This is not good weather for tailgating and lawn seats at a concert. We tailgated in the car and then decided to leave the concert. Well lets just say that it was NOT up to me to leave the concert, but nobody wanted to stay in the rain. I, on the other hand, would survive an F 10 tornado for my Rascal Flatts, but it was like 5 to 1, so I lost out. So we left and where did we drive an hour to, but Mountaineer Racetrack and Casino.

On our way to Mountaineer the skies were turning bluer and bluer, and we know that this weather was going to be going straight to the concert. We made a decision that after a half and hour at the casino and the weather was still clear, we'd turn around and make it back to the concert for Rascal Flatts to come on at 9:15. Let's just say that a half an hour later and $100 in the hole between four of us, the sun was shining and we hauled ass outta West Virginia and back to PA. The whole way back, we danced. And sang. And drank. (illegal I know). And made it back to the concert in record timing just to catch the second song. When I explain to you that I ran, dragging Pumpkinface and others through the graveled parking lot, into the amphitheatre - I mean this girl RAN. But we had a blast. Pumpkinface and I danced, and sang, and canoodled (my word for cuddling).

Sunday and Monday were fun-filled days of Memorial Day picnics. There was card playing and family fun game night at my house playing Monopoly for 3.5 hours. I, for one, have never played a game of Monopoly until last night in life. (and I never ate Spaghetti-o's until 5 months ago - was I deprived). Pumpkinface, me, and my family had the best. time. ever. And leads me up to today - back at work, for three more days, blogging and catching up. I promise a fun-filled post with lots of pictures (once I get the camera) and maybe even an open letter if you are lucky is sure to follow in the days/hours ahead. Again, I've missed you all, it's good to be back!

    All that money you spent on dresses could have been used to purchase my plane ticket...return the dresses and book my flight! Come Friday, you are offically unemployed just like half the population of New Castle...how's that make you feel?

    I can't beleive you have never played Monopoly before. Or eaten Spaghetti-o's. (of course I'm still getting over the fact that none of you have heard of the movie RAD. I should make copies and mail them out for you to enjoy or not)

    You know what I love? That you KNOW you look hot in aqua. I hate false modesty. If you look smokin', shout it from the rooftops, hon!

    Good to have you back :)

    Ok for the real junk food ride, you must dip white bread with real butter in your Spaggetti-o's! True fattening bliss!
