Ramblings...

Folks, this is no Plane Jane Ramblings. No, no, this is a special addition. Blogger World, today I
bring you Ramblings with Pictures. Are you excited? I'm excited!

This is a picture of my new dress. It's from Old Navy. Here's the thing, I bought Old Navy's Groupon thinking it would be great for baby presents. When I walked into Old Navy I had every intent on using the Groupon for a gift. But I saw this dress and things went downhill-like I didn't buy a present for anyone but myself. Good news, I've already worn the dress. It's very comfortable. I give it 4 stars. I would give it 5 stars, but I wore it to the movies and froze to death.

I have a confession. I don't understand everyone's fascination with Pippa. She has become an overnight sensation. I get that her sister marrying Prince William was a big deal. Ok, huge deal. But The Royal Wedding was a long time ago. Why am I still reading about Pippa? Why does People.com post a picture of her daily? She doesn't do anything but walk around. Does she even have a job? Again, why is she still in the tabloids?

Last night I was going to make Black Bean Salsa. Have you guys had this? It's very good, and a good source of protein. I'm always looking for a good source of protein. The more protein I eat, the less likely my mom will inform me I need to take iron pills. As I said in the beginning, I was going to make this tasty side dish. I end up not making Black Bean Salsa because I was lazy. I would have had to buy groceries and chop 5 things. All-in-all I decided I could receive a good dose of protein by eating a granola bar.


Today, is Tom Hank's birthday. I would like to wish him a Happy Birthday. He's in one of my favorite movies, You've Got Mail. I also feel that it's important to mention today is also Kevin Bacon's birthday. He's also in one of my favorite movies, Footloose. Do you think Tom and Kevin are friends in real life? If so, do you think they sent Facebook messages to each other?




This summer I've been getting up at 5am to run. It's far too hot to run in the evening. We've had 18 consecutive days of 100 temps. Do you know yesterday it got up to 108? These are times I'm thankful my office keeps it at 45 all year round.















Friends, this is all the Ramblings I have for today.

Happy Friday and Happy Birthday to Tom Hanks and Kevin Bacon!

Very cute dress! Perhaps you didn't really need the baby gifts? :D

No idea about her...I don't read the tabs and she doesn't make the TMZ radar I guess. I just watch TMZ for the office banter though...could care less about the celebs. LOL!

too bad about the salsa...hummm that is a lot of veggies to chop. I was thinking that perhaps you could just get some at Qdoba but you would still have to mix in the beans.

Tom Hanks has been in the "news" a lot lately...no idea why.

This rain we've been getting hasn't hit you too? wow we had flooding yesterday...silly people getting their cars stuck.

Totally love the dress, totally agree about Pippa. I bet Kate is a little jealous of her little sis stealing her thunder and all...
Yes black bean salsa is a staple. Sort of like Texas caviar, right?
Wearing jeans today because I'm in a hotel that is 45 degrees. Very thankful for that.
Stop running and making everyone else look bad.

Sorry for the triple comment. :)

I love that dress! Summer dresses are one of my favorite things...probably because they hide my legs so much better than shorts do! I have several from years past that I just wear around the house because they are so worn, and I refuse to give them up.

Black bean salsa...sounds like a good, cool, dinner sometime.

Have you seen the new Tom Hanks movie? I want to but am hearing mixed reviews on it.

That's probably why Tom Hanks is in the news, because of his new movie. I like Tom Hanks and wanted to see it until I discovered that Julia Roberts' character is married. That was a disappointment. We don't need any more encouragement to get out of unhappy marriages or see what else is out there..

I have not seen the Tom Hanks movie. My mom really wanted to see it, but one of her friends said it was lame.
