New Years Eve!

Image
~New Years Eve~ This is the last day of the year
they call it new years eve
look back at all the memories
this year you’re going to leave

Some you will cherish always
and keep for all it’s worth
because someone close to you
has been gifted with a birth

Some others you wish to forget
but know you never will
for someone close passed over
and some were never ill

Some will be very pleasant
and close to your heart
sit down and list the good things
back to january make a start

So when you feel unhappy
in the new upcoming year
sit down and read your memories
and smile from ear to ear

Don’t ponder on the bad things now
only tears will be shed
for tomorrow is a new start
a new year is ahead

Shameless Season 1-Available Now!

Image
~Shameless~ Frank Gallagher tends to spend every penny he can muster at the bar. If I could take just a portion of that money to give to Fiona{his daughter} I would tell her to take a long day just for herself.If it be shopping~eating out or going to get her nails done. I think that she deserves a day out of the house. As she is left alone all the time with the kids. She takes cars of them as if they are her own.


If you could take just a portion of that money and give it to his daughter Fiona, what would you tell her to do with it? Take a long, much needed vacation? Invest in a new house? Feed the family for a year? Etc... I would love to hear your thoughts too!

The DVD release includes all 12 hilarious episodes of The First Season plus never-before-seen special features available for the first time on Blu-ray and DVD. The Gallaghers are irreverent, endearing, resilient - and they are absolutely, wildly and unapologetically SHAMELESS! You can get your own copy here~

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM "Happy Birthday Mom"
It's sure to be the best one yet,
Though you left me here behind.
Did you think that I'd forget?

Your cake this year, will surely be,
A beauty to behold.
With the icing made of Silver,
And the candles made of Gold.

Yes your birthday in Heaven,
Will be such a grand affair.
And I know you'll look so lovely,
With a halo in your hair.

The Angels will come from everywhere,
To sing your birthday song.
And I know they'll be so happy,
That you've joined, God's Happy Throng.

No I can't send a card this year,
Or give a gift so fine.
So I'll just send a special prayer,
To that wonderful mother of mine. ~Happy Birthday Mom~ I love and miss you so much..

Shameless I Never Challenge DVD

Image
Shameless Season One will be available on DVD and Blu-Ray on December 27th and I couldn't be happier! As Shameless is one of my favorite shows to watch! The series follows the dysfunctional family of Frank Gallagher, a single father of six children. While he spends his days drunk, his kids learn to take care of themselves.Frank has done nothing but collect his disability checks and get hammered for years.There are so many Shameless moments but my favorite is~ Frank has so many unpaid bills and he knows that bailiffs and Mr Wilson are still looking for him. When Norma{Monica's lesbian lover} tells him to fake his own death!

What's the most Shameless thing you've ever done? Take the Shameless I-Never challenge and then either admit or deny if YOU’VE done something just as shameless!
The most Shameless thing that I have done is when I was younger I went to see Male Strippers and I ended up drinking quite a bit..Before you knew it I was up there dancing with them! Yes~they…

Softlips Review and Giveaway 12/31

Image
I have been using the Softlips winter flavors {Winter Mint, Sugar Cookie, Sugar & Spice, and Sugar Plum Berry}. With the cold weather my lips get so dry and chapped. With Softlips I don't have to worry about that anymore. They are all so yummy and make my lips feel so soft and smooth. And they are easy to apply and stay on your lips! I like that they don't make my lips feel greasy at all.The flavors are great but I think that my favorite is the Sugar Cookie! It is just the right amount of sweetness. All the Softlips have SPF 20 so they also protect your lips from the sun.

Shameless Season 1 Now Avaiable on DVD and Blu-Ray!

Image
~Shameless~

Frank Gallagher leaves his eldest daughter Fiona to hold down the house, donning the proverbial apron and making sure her younger siblings do their chores, keep a clean(ish) house and stay fed. Fiona, in a difficult position being the eldest of the Gallagher children, takes the responsibility of child-rearing which often results in humorous outcomes. For example: in Episode~4 the middle Gallagher child Debbie, after becoming depressed with her Aunt's passing, decides to steal a toddler from a birthday party. Fiona and the rest of the siblings devise a plan to return the boy to his family while going unnoticed by the increased policein the area.

When I was younger I used to babysit for 5 boys and let me tell you,that sure was a handful.As soon as the parents left~it was if they all knew to take off in different directions and run! They would stand on the furniture and tell me to try to make them stop! Did I mention that they also took the dog in the bathtub?!? Oh…
