a handsome hubby, two darling daughters, a pair of puppies

and other reasons I'm a Chipper Chickie...


Scarlett, I Do Declare!

I am semi-sad to report that my journalist friend Amanda {which I credit for helping me discover that I am, in fact, a Republican} has decided to join the ranks of the Libertarians.

I say “semi-sad” because I can see where she’s coming from. Let's face it. DC needs a makeover worse than Memphis right now {you never could trust those boys that go by their initials instead of their given name}.

But darn it, the girl looks good in red!

At least we can still agree that Karl Rove is a genius. And, in a strange way, sort of cute.

In other news, I recently re-discovered her blog, Scarlett in the Bell Jar.

Give yourself a treat and subscribe. Amanda is an amazingly talented writer and is down-right, slap-yourself-on-the-knee, sneeze-milk-out-of-your-nose hilarious. I've been trying to get her to write a book about her adventures for years. I hope she does it someday because her readers would be wildly entertained.

Her latest blog post highlights one of the many trips we took together during our non-profit days. I'd like to say that I have pulled it together since the days of having to express mail my purse, which I forgot to bring with me, to my hotel room...but, who am I kidding?

I look forward to seeing her in September when the fam heads to Winona, MS for my favorite cousin's weddin'. And, Handsome Hubby is eagerly anticipating some flavorful political banter. His favorite kind.
