Just when we think we are alone...

We make eye contact with a guy in the car next to us right after he finished his amazing drum solo to whatever song he was listening to. To me, there is nothing better in the world

Tired of it all!

You know what I'm tired of? Having a lot of things to do, and still not being 100% sure on what to write about! :) Bet you thought it was something else, huh?! ;-)

Bad! Bad! Bad, Housewife!

Okay, well that's more directed to the fact that I've not had the time to Blog! Well I've not made the time, to be honest. The last few days have just flown by and I've been busy from sun-up to sun-down.

Lord...I thank you for the Bacardi!

Today was one of those days! I don't even really know where to start, other than...I woke up!

The one good thing today was that I've finally noticed

One HELLUVA Mad Housewife!

That's right, I said it! I'm one helluva Mad Housewife...lover! I admit it! Anyone who knows me, knows that I LOVE Mad Housewife wine! Cabernet Sauvignon to be exact!

Another day...another drink!

Well, another day is coming to an end. And it's been a pretty good day, no complaints from me!

We went for our normal walk this morning and I headed off to work, only to sit in traffic for an hour and fifteen minutes! WOOT!

Who's reading this???

Wow! What a day! So I've been busy all day today! I've been making things, doing laundry, running errands, and taking care of the dogs.

My typical morning starts around 6:15 AM, when Mike gets out of bed to shower and get ready for work.

Back to being THE Housewife!

Well, here I am! I'm getting back into the swing of my day to day life, already!

I've done three loads of laundry, went grocery shopping (at three stores), made lunch (spaghetti with meatballs and a homemade sauce),

Home at last! :) - Day 8

Well, we are home! I am so happy to be home! I always find it funny how when you are going on vacation you can NOT wait to get away from your life...but while you are gone, you tend to miss your routine and everything that goes along with it.

Ocean, Eating, Victoria - Our final day on board

Another day at sea…and another day of walking around the ship and eating! I’ve eaten a lot of food on this trip, which has been nice…but I don’t know

Thursday, September 15, 2011


Well…what a day! Let’s start with last night. :)  We went to dinner, it was formal night, and I felt so good in my suit! Until I ate, then I felt like the spring heifer! But I digress. After the show we went and watched the evening show, which was some guy singing Elton John songs.

Sitka and beyond!

Today was an interesting day. We dropped anchor in the harbor outside of Sitka at around 9 AM. We were supposed to have breakfast delivered between 8 and 8:30 this morning, but we didn’t check the proper box on the sheet so breakfast wasn’t delivered until 15 minutes before we were supposed to leave for our Sea Otter and Wildlife Cruise. And if any of you know me, you know that I’m not a fan of when things don’t go the way they are supposed to.

Life on the seas....ROUGH! Seriously!

So…today I really found out what life on the open seas is all about. 30+ foot swells! Oh My Friggin’ God! Last night was a bit rough, so I thought. I felt like I was on some never ending roller coaster. I had three Bacardi and cokes and like a good housewife…I passed the hell out.

Hello Juneau!

Our trip to Juneau was gorgeous!

So we are in port in Juneau, AK, we’ve been docked here since noon. It’s been a bit of a shitty day, if I might say so. Last night after taking my picture in my suit, my digital camera decided to start acting funky.

Life on the open seas

Today has been a pretty lazy day on the ship. Right now we are somewhere off of the outer coast of south eastern Alaska. Our view from our verandah is of the Pacific Ocean, and I am always amazed by its massive expanse.

I didn’t do many activities today, I wanted to go to a few culinary classes, but sleep won out. The ship has been rocking quite a bit, so it’s taken me some time to get used to the constant movement. But alas, I find the food on here yummy, and the Bacardi I ordered even yummier!!!
Tonight is our first formal dinner and I get to wear the new suit we bought for the cruise!

Alaskan Cruise...Day 1

So today was a fun day! I have to start out by saying that I do miss Cooper! A bunch!!! But it’s nice to be away from what has become a hectic “real life.” I’m able to think about me, and what I want to do…and it’s only day one.

Bon Voyage!!!!

So here I am...the morning of our cruise. I didn't sleep but a few hours last night, I'm always a bit nervous before traveling. I was all packed, everything was ready for the dogs; yet still my mind wouldn't shut off.

So I couldn't help it...dinner...

So I was just going to throw steak on the grill...but I decided to wrap it in thick cut peppered bacon. And make some potatoes on the grill with onions, garlic and jalapenos. And some freshly grilled corn from our CSA!  YUMMY! And HELLO MADHOUSEWIFE!

Ready....set......ahhhhh crap!

So today is another mad scramble! Trying to make sure I have not only things for me packed, but making sure that everything is all set for the dogs' stay at The Dog Spot. I think Cooper knows that something is up...he keeps following me around and whining while giving me the most pathetic looks. While Puck on the other hand is pretty oblivious to everything.

Laundry and Pappa al Pomodoro

I've found myself running around like a chicken with it's head cut off the last few days. Why, you ask? Well because, we leave this weekend for an Alaskan cruise and there are a million things that need to be done...and it's clearly the job of a housewife to do them all.

Someday Bravo! will find me!!

So here it is...the first of what I hope will be many posts about my day to day life as The REAL Housewife of Snohomish County. I've been thinking about starting this blog for quite some time and I figure it'll be a nice outlet for some of my creativity that is pent up inside me! :)
