Smokin' Hot Women (other then myself)

It's late on a Saturday night and I'm bored so I thought I'd have some fun on my blog. Have I mentioned that I love both Celine Dion and Angelina Jolie?

I was so privileged to be able to go to the amazing Celine Dion show in Vegas for Matt and I's 1 yr anniversary last New Years. It was the best gift I've ever gotten and the best $150 I've ever spent.

I definitely don't idolize Angelina Jolie but I think she's smokin' hot ( can a girl say that?) and I think it's awesome how she can look so normal and motherly one moment and then next look hot and mysterious. I wish I had that ability. (For some reason I always feel like I look like a librarian. ) For example:

"kindergarten teacher"



It must be the eye make-up. I gotta learn how to do that.

Things you didn't know about me....

1. I don't eat anything that swims. I think it's the smell and texture. And yes, I have tried sea food on multiple occasions because my husband loves it and begs me to. Even very expensive lobster dipped in butter is ewww to me. My husband thinks it tastes like heaven. Opposites sure attract don't they.

2. I love learning about mummy's , burial customs, and ancient Egyptians traditions. As a kid I remember one year in elementary school going over Egyptian History. I was mesmerized! One of my favorite movies is The Mummy I and II. Did y'all hear King Tut's mummified body was found and is now in display in Ciro Egypt!? How cool! I would love to go tour a pyramid someday. Random I know.

3. I love airports. Probably because I was seriously considering being a flight attendant before I met Matt. (have you ever seen "View from the Top" with Gweneth Paltro? Loved it. ) Since I don't get to fly a lot, I often volunteer to pick people up and drop them off because I love just being there. It reminds me of my honeymoon and when Matt and I went to Vegas for our first anniversary. I love to travel but don't really have the money to do it a lot. When I do get a chance to, it's like the biggest deal ever. I can't sleep for days before hand because I'm so excited...

4. I eat while I grocery shop. Ya, I'm one of those shoppers who snacks on food before it's actually paid for! Hehe! Not everything, just a few crackers or a handful of chips etc. It's because I always go after a long day at work and I'm so hungry I can't help it.

I need to think of some more....

$ 737,000

So today during surgery I heard on the radio that Britney Spears earns $ 737,000 monthly. Everyone in the room was talking about what they would do with that kind of money. One doc said he would buy an island in the Bahamas, another doc said he already had one (what!!) so he would buy a castle in Europe or something. I was just thinking what I would do with that much money.

This is what I would seriously do if I got $ 737,000 for some strange reason...
1) I would buy a nice, well-made house big enough to have plenty of family over for holidays and big enough for my children to have their own room, probably with a gigantic kitchen (with a island) a pool and a movie/media room for Matt to watch Lord of the Rings.

2) I would buy my parents and my mother-in-law each a comfortable house as well. (but across town...mama didn't raise no fool)

3) I would give at least $50,000 to my church and I would send my wonderful, humble pastor and his wife on a fantastic vacation where ever they want to go to say thank you for being such a great pastor for 23+ yrs.

4. Matt would definitely invest some money into some stock or something that I know nothing about.

5. Matt and I would go on a big group vacation and pay all our friends way to go (first class) to Europe or something.

After that, I got nothin'.

Side Note:
Even though I can think of all these great things I would want, I would NEVER want to be so filthy rich. Don't get me wrong, it definitely helps when you make a good living but geez. Look at those peoples lives, how unhappy and never satisfied they are. I have really worked on trying to be content with what I have! I would LOVE to be in a house right now, but God has provided a great apartment in a nice location and two new cars that are reliable...I really have nothing to wine about and am learning to be thankful always.
