Good Clean Fun.

Sometimes I have plans to meet up with fellow bloggers for a day of touring, tasting, and totally having a big time.

Sometimes my plans change at the last minute, due to stomach issues that are not swine flu-related (thank God).

Sometimes I'm home alone for an entire weekend. Yes, alone. Just me and Lewis, our fearless feline, and the entire first season of Gossip Girl on DVD. With a lot of Commodium A-D and Phenergan thrown in for good measure.

Sometimes, when I've been home alone all weekend and intimately acquainted with my toilet, I long for Barbie's glamorous, carefree life:

And I want y'all to share it with me. There's plenty of room in this sink full o' bubbles for all of us. Apparently swimsuits are optional. Don't let that frighten you. The suds shall cover a multitude of sins.

Here's to a fabulous week for each of us...I raise my miniature pink glass to y'all, toasting friendship and fun.

And zero need for Commodium A-D.

While begging Calgon to take us away...







Good times.

Hope you're feeling better!

jori-o said...

Aw man! Hope you feel better soon!

Julie said...

that stinks! no pun intended :) I pray that you feel better soon!!! Mommies should never get sick!

CaraBee said...

Oh honey, I'm so sorry you missed out on a weekend of fun! Admit it, though, it was kind of cool to have the house to yourself all weekend. Just thinking about having my run of the place, for even a day, makes my knees weak. Clearly I need a vacation.

Hope you're feeling better!

Lauren W said...

Oh my, I'm so sorry that you weren't feeling well this weekend :) I am glad that you got to have a weekend to yourself, though.
Hope you're feeling better soon.

Becky said...

That stinks you missed out on your fun weekend:(

I would almost take being sick if it meant I could be alone all weekend, with my cat and gossip girl:)

Glad it's not the swine flu!

Sparkette said...

Hope you are feeling better! That was a cute post :)

Amy said...

Being alone is awesome at times, but not when you are sick. Get well soon :)

Miss Eve said...

This is hilarious ( I mean the photo and the way you write about it). Did you really take this picture? It's just terrific...love it. Hope you will be better soon, blessing: Evi

Amy said...

I'm sorry you're sick.
Have you listened to anything by Goat yet?
I think I told you about one song, "Angel," there is another one I like called, "Two Sides to Love," and I am going to listen to more and report back.

Feel better. Have a great day. :)

Heather said...

I'm sure the Biltmore girls missed you terribly. However, I'm sure they are glad you didn't share your germs with them...

Does Libbey know you were playing with her Barbies while she was gone? Hmmm?

I'll be lifting my pink glass up to you in one more week. I.Can't.Wait.

Angie's Spot said...

We really missed you lady! There's nothing like seeing me get toasted at a wine tasting. (sigh) ANYWAY, glad you're feeling better! xoxo

Pinky Roth said...

Sorry, you were sick, but I know it was nice and quiet around the ole homefront! Hope you are feeling better now.

Love,

Mom

Melissa said...

How did your beans and rice turn out?
Are you feeling better?
I'm feeling much better. Glad to be done with whatever my issues were.

Brandy said...

I see we have another Chuck Bass fan within these comments. Yay!

I hope you're feeling better honey! GG is the perfect rememdy, no?

Bekah said...

clearly i'm the worst friend b/c # 1: i didn't realize you didn't go away #2: i didn't realize you were sick

i thought the lack of texts just meant you were having a marvelous time.

sorry you're sick :(

sassy stephanie said...

I'm laughing so hard. And so envious of Barb and the girls.

The Royal Family said...

I saw your comment on not your ave. soccer mom, you really live in forks? that's awesome! I am going to lie and tell people I know you and the cullens are real people.

Lacey said...

She was only sick because she had way too much to eat and way too much to drink with me the night before! haha! By the way... What's that guy on "The A Team" is his name "HEAD"?????

Lula! said...

Lacey lies.

Anyone who forgets "Face" from the A-Team is clearly a whackadoo.

Love you, Lacey. And the rednecks at the Comedy Zone in Johnson City, TN. Good times.

angie said...

Commodium AD. I'm rolling. Rolling. Did you make that up just now?

I wish you weren't sick last weekend. No fun at all.

And here's to you. (can you see my glass raised as well?) :)

Denise said...

Oh dear! I hope you feel better but looks like the Barbies made out, well not literally, or did they? A bunch of naked Barbies hangin' out and drinkin'-- this can only come to no good.

Shannon said...

Yes, your presence was greatly missed... but you were there in spirit!

Speaking of spirits... I'm already counting down the hours to when I can pop open a bottle. After the morning I've had, I so need it.

Glad you're feeling better! love you!

Caroline said...

Oh man, sorry you're sick. Hope you feel better soon! I love the picture by the way - and I'd definitely need bubbles to cover this mess, but mine's from a growing baby.

Love ya!

Christina said...

I'm so sorry you were (are) sick. I hope your feeling better. Great pics... so funny

Heather said...

Oh, honey, that stomach of yours...

I must insist the good doctor fix that before September. And prescribe some party favors.

I'm the Barbie on the end with bubbles all up in her hair. Look at how Tinkerbell (yes, I recognized her) in the middle is looking over at the one with her hand raised in a toast. There's something going on there.

Jen said...

I can't wait to join in, the sink of bubbles not the stomach flu. Hope you feel better soon.

Swirl Girl said...

I am so sorry you weren't feeling well...but to be alone for several days without guilt!!

a little diarrhea now and then doesn't sound so bad....

Veggie Mom said...

Feel better, Gal Friend. Calgon can cure a lot of what ails ya. I promise. POPrs, too!

Live.Love.Eat said...

OH wow, you missed your weekend too. I know Angela missed it too for different reasons. Too bad! But I do hope you're feeling better! How stupid am I that I didn't catch your commodium AD and had to realize from the comments. Hah.

But yay to Gossip Girl. One of my guilty pleasures!!!

Linda said...

We've had a few of those barbie parties in our sink too. Those girls know how it's done. Seems like a weekend home alone wouldn't be such a bad thing ... except for the commodium part ... and missing out on a fun time with friends. Hope you're feeling better!

Jenny and the Princess Peonies said...

Oh man. What a drag!!!! I hope you are all better! I am totally in the sink tub with you. I may need to steal your pink glass though....

Just think you will be hanging with the Kings soon!!

Angela said...

I hope you are feeling MUCH better! I am so sorry you could not make it - I was not able to make it either at the last minute. We will have to reschedule something soon! :) Happy week and I loved Barbie's get together in the "hot tub." Too cute!

Elena said...

Oh there is NOTHING worse than stomach flu! I'm so sorry. Hope you're feeling better.

Lauren said...

Please tell me you are not joking about watching Gossip Girl season 1. Email me now.

Em said...

So glad you're feeling better!!

And you know I love you girl, but I think I might have passed on jumping in the tub with the whole anal leakage thing going on.

Just saying.

But I'm still very glad you're feeling better!! :-)

The Bayou Belles and Their Beau said...

Now, that's the life. Count me in.

Marrdy said...

There is nothing worse than kneel in praise before the porcelan god...hope you're feeling better.
