How Pinteresting...

How Pinteresting Wed~

This hair style has been floating around on Pinterest, so this morning I decided to try it before work

Image belongs to this site

Here's my take:

Now mind you, I have medium to long hair, that is fine/med when it comes to thickness. I think a few more attempts and I'll have it down pat. :) 

Yesterday I rocked this look that is also on Pinterest

Trees, Planners and in search of this here box!

We put our tree up on Sunday. I lost 2 ornaments courtesy our lovely hard floor :( 
I smashed my 2008 Where the Wild Things Are 

and a vintage camera ornament that I got from world market last year. BOO BOO and BOO!

Ok moving on... 

Have you ever loved a purchase so much, that when you wore it out, and went to replace it, you couldn't find it anywhere? 


Case in point see below..

I bought my Franklin Covey planner when I graduated from College, from Target. I wasn't so nice to it over the lasting years, and thus it got really beat up with stains on the leather. I tried everything to get them clean, with NO LUCK. Sure, I definitely looked around to replace it with something new over the last 2 years, but as with most things, I'm PICKY! And had yet to ever find one I really liked. 

Fast Forward to present day
I had to reorder my refill Monthly pages for my planner, and I checked on Amazon.
When I typed in Franklin Covey, I was SHOCKED! Low and behold there was my old planner! In MINT condition! How the efff does that happen considering this planner hasn't be available to purchase since 05? 

Fate my friends! 

You bet cha I snatched that baby up right away! 
As much as I love my Iphone and all that it does, I am still very OLD SCHOOL and write down ALL my appointments, scheduling, things to do etc etc in my planner. 
Just as I handwrite all my contacts in my planner to in case one day I were to ever lose my phone, how would I call anyone if they weren't written somewhere to refer to? 

And lastly.....

How many of you have a HomeGoods/marshalls where you live?

How many of you have seen or recently seen this box at one? 
I would LOVE this box in white, but sadly I have checked most of our stores where I live and they don't have it! 

I am usually super good at finding things online SOMEHOW SOMEWHERE VIA the web, but no such luck with this item (and no, it's not a tory burch box as some asked me the other day)

So I thought since many of you shop often, if do you see one of these in white at your local store and trust this here fellow blogger, I would happily drop you a check in the mail for one!!!


HEY you guys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gang's All here! 

Where are they NOW? 
Goonies Edition! 

The man behind Sloth's makeup was former Oakland Raiders defensive end John 'Tooz' Matuszak, who left the football field in 1981 to pursue an acting career. He died of heart failure at age 38 (drug overdose) 

He has done some acting throughout the years with his role in Goonies and "Indiana Temple of Doom" by far being the highlights of his career. 
He did attend college and graduated from the University of Southern California School of Cinema Television.

Nowadays he is a martial artist and working as a stunt coordinator. He worked with Jet Li on "The One".

Martha Plimpton .... Stefanie 'Stef' Steinbrenner

Still very active in Hollywood, she has appeared in many films and TV shows.

Kerri Green .... Andrea 'Andy' Carmichael

TRIVIA: Kerri got the role in Goonies when she skipped summer camp to attend some movie auditions. You guessed it... she landed the role in Goonies.

Of all the main cast members of Goonies, she is the only one that does not appear in the video for Cyndi Lauper's 'The Goonies R Good Enough'.

Corey Feldman .... Clark 'Mouth' Devereaux
Where is he now?
 Did you know... That Feldman began the 1990s providing the voice of Donatello for the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Film and for the others that followed? Yep. He did. 

In 2011, Feldman also cameoed in the music video for Katy Perry's single "Last Friday Night"

After a public drug battle, he was able to get his life together and makes appearances here and there. 
He earns cool points in my book because Feldman has been awarded the Paws of Fame Award by the Wildlife Way Station for his dedication to animal rights.

Jeff Cohen .... Lawrence 'Chunk' Cohen

Um, he's definitely not a "chunk" anymore! 

Now he is an Entertainment Lawyer in Los Angeles. But he never seems to escape his Goonies past. He is always asked to do the "Truffle Shuffle". In fact, while he was a student at UC Berkley he would do the "Truffle Shuffle" during football games on the sidelines.

Josh Brolin .... Brandon 'Brand' Walsh
These days, Josh Brolin is a highly gardlanded leading man. Having amassed an impressive CV which includes playing George W. Bush in the Oliver Stone biopic W starring in the Coen Brothers' brooding cult smash No Country For Old Men. He was in the recent Wall Street movie, and also in American Gangster.

He's been in a serious relationship with Diane Lane since 2004. 

Joe was the older Fratelli, Francis, who was, it's fair to say, the brains of the outfit. Joe's gone on to star in genre defining epic The Matrix as Cypher, and the landmark TV drama The Sopranos, as Ralph Cifaretto. Or if you are like me, recognized him from playing along side Tommy Lee Jones in the movie "The Fugitive". 

Anne Ramsey .... Mama Fratelli
 In real life, Anne went on to star as another overbearing matriarch, opposite Danny DeVito and Billy Crystal in the blackly comic Throw Mama from The Train, as well as appearing in Scrooged, Meet The Hollowheads and extraterrestrial TV show Alf. Anne sadly died in 1988, aged 58, after a battle with cancer.

Sean Astin was the adventurous Mikey, who led the gang on their hunt for One-Eyed Willie's treasure, and his experience of quests stood him in good stead for his highest profile post-Goonies role, as Samwise Gamgee in The Lord Of The Rings. As well as Hobbiting it up, Sean's starred a couple of Adam Sandler movies, in 24, as well as other hit TV shows including Law & Order and My Name Is Earl. He's also a producer and director
My personal two favorite movies with him: Encino Man (1992); and the college football biopic movie Rudy.(1993)

 Probably best known as Agent Baily Malone in the NBC television series Profiler. Classically trained as a singer, Davi launched his singing career in 2011 performing Frank Sinatra classics.

He's Republican :) (wahoo) and is a devout Roman Catholic and regularly speaks of God or relates passages from the Bible in speaking. He is a frequent guest on Fox News's late-night satire program Red Eye  with Greg Gutfield.
And there you have it friends :) 
Any surprises? I know I had no idea that "sloth" was a football player in real life before he died.

Book Review

I decided to crank out some serious reading this weekend. I finished this book:

 if you've never read or seen the movie, "the sisterhood of the traveling pants" then you probably shouldn't read this book, seeing how it's the last installment of this story.

If you've read and or seen the movie, then you can totally read this book.
The story line completely through me for a loop. I Kept picturing these actresses faces in this novel..

 and I can't leave out Kostos Lena's major love interest! 

The characters changed so much from the first 2 stories. Grown up so to speak. In the beginning I used to really gravitate to Bridget's character. However in this last novel, she kinda turned into a hippie chick (that's all I can say for those of you who haven't read it)
Lena is probably my fave story line throughout the books. 

It was a good read, and I enjoyed it!
