So, Zumba did this to me. They posted these cute new shoes.

Zumba Shopping

And I thought, "I can't." Because of, you know, this.

But then I said, "What the heck." I purchased them. And a couple of other things.

Then my Little Honey Bunch says, "I need a new sport coat and slacks. Where do you think I should go."

Me, "Nordstrom."

He wanted to quit looking like a hobo needed them for his trip next week so we decided to go this afternoon. I went with him because of his, you know, color blindness. One of the reasons you go to Nordstrom is their very helpful sales associates. Within not very long, with the associate's help, my Little Honey Bunch settled on a nice sport coat and a pair of slacks.

So, after his almost $1000 purchase of two things, I do not feel guilty about my $130 purchase of three things, albeit unnecessary things. I love it when he buys things and makes me look like the frugal one.

Me and my Little Honey Bunch on the way to Nordy's.

Oh, and a note to Nordstrom or whomever (whoever?) designed that fancy new parking lot: It's really cool and you probably spent a billion dollars on the red and green lights to show space availability but, it's of no use whatsoever to color blind people. My Little Honey Bunch is like, "What red and green lights?"


White Roses

September 19, 2016

Remember last month when I took flowers to my mother's grave? I took red, yellow and white roses, the colors I remembered were on the casket spray at her funeral.

White Roses

After I thought about it a bit, I said, "Wait. They were pink, yellow and red. Not white."

Anyway, yesterday I was watching my Medium shows, always looking for signs. So Tyler was talking to Moby, whose mother smoked all her life and died of cancer. She came through to Tyler and said that she knew Moby had just been to her grave and taken white roses.

Thank you for noticing, Mommy. I miss you!

Nerd in the Burb, The Blog Is Born

My loves are my Honey Bunch, my children, my family, friends and Zumba. My Zumba site:

Zumba Con Sabor

Rosy Straka Dot Com BN (Before Nerd):

One of my favorite sites and one I'll be ideas from. (Hmmm. I already see my Nerd font is similar to hers. Hers is Edwardian Script and Mine is Beautiful ES.)

The Pioneer Woman

The website of a very talented artist who happens to be my son.


This is my nieces blog. She's cute: needs a facelift and makeover. I'll be working on that, too.

They need you.

Glide Memorial

They need you, too.
