Is there such a thing? Yup…but not in Knoxville. One day when we live in Maui (and we will), we’ll get to unabashedly experience the joys of warm weather and lazy days on the beach. Till then this equator baby will just have to settle for last minuteĀ  trips to le beach to get me through fall and winter.

Did I mention that I hate cold weather?

For your viewing pleasure, please do enjoy the following tidbits that will keep me warm in the coming months. My acorns stored for winter…if you will.

Read on Lovers…learn from a pro!

Admirer: “You’re beautiful AND delicious.”

Me: “Oh yeah? What’s the difference between the two?”

Admirer: “Well, you’re so beautiful that I want to stand like 10 feet away just so I can look at you from across the room. But you’re also so delicious that it makes me want to get close enough for a treat.”

Cheesy? Maybe. But I’m saucy…so he got lucky.

Thanks Favorite!

Just kidding!

Family has been in town this past week, so I haven’t had time for anything…except a lot of relaxing and laughing. So I’ll try to update later.

Here are some pics in the meantime…

I Must Be The Nanny by avill7

This is apparently the only logical conclusion that’s left for people to reach when they encounter me out in the world (sorry, K-Town) with Chick Pea. What else would a blonde haired white baby be doing with a dark haired, tan-skinned young lady?

Surely I jest…but no. I’ve actually been asked if I’m the nanny on 3 seperate occasions and I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve been askedĀ  “So where’d the blonde hair come from?”.


Would it take a genious to figure out that if it’s not from me, then maybe (just maybe) it might be from the other gene-contributing parent? Or that I must have some recessive genes? And why am I never asked if I adopted?

Who knows. Maybe it’s the spanish speaking, the brown skin, and/or the lack of diversity in the areas I frequent. Either way, it provides for much entertainment here at Meville and beyond! Plus, Favorite loves it when people think he has a cute nanny.

Exiled…How Bad Do I Have To Be? by avill7

I’m totally willing to act as a spoiled, pampered, ungrateful, undeserving, demanding, and annoying diva wanna-be for a couple of weeks if I could receive the same punishment that these dingbats are getting on MTV’s new show Exiled.

Remember the Sweet Sixteen spawns of satan? Oh whatever, like you didn’t watch every episode! Well, they’re now being “punished” by being shipped off to exotic areas in the world to learn what it’s like for others that aren’t as privileged. They’re being sent to stay with families and tribes in places like Kenya, Brazil, Peru, Australia, and Thailand just to name a few.

Uh yeah…all places on my travel wish list. And I would LOVE to stay with the locals and learn from them!

I wish Youtube had a clip from Amanda’s trip to Kenya up already so you can watch it and tell me you don’t want to punch her in the kidney. You can watch the whole episode on MTV’s site or cry yourself to sleep over the missed opportunity because I’m sure they’ll never ever ever show it again.

Okay so jealousy aside, I have a niece that could really benefit from something like this. Any chance I could just ship her off to you MTV folks?
