Senior Night

Magnolia Blue Eagle Seniors
(my baby is standing behind #1 and #6)

Tonight is senior night for boy #3. It's his last regular season home game, ever.

It's supposed to rain, so I went online to buy something to wear that said, school-spirited, yet fashionably dry. 

I found a nice rain coat, and I had the option of getting it in navy or a golden yellow. 

Well, our colors are blue and gold. 

And I did wear blue at boy #2's senior night. 

AND the yellow was on clearance- a full $15 cheaper than the muted, classic navy. 

Who couldn't use an extra $15- especially now? I know I certainly could. So, I ordered the golden yellow.

My rain coat arrived yesterday. 

It's golden yellow, all right. Eye-popping and bold as a summer sun. 

Thanks to my frugal nature, I'm going look like nature- a freaking giant dandelion. 

Make a wish, seniors! The future is all yours. 

Now. For my good things:

check in. We won. Signs are home.
Tara's here to visit!

1. I got a thong!!! A book thong, perv. Thanks to the marvelous and talented Melissa Maygrove. It's for her new novel, Precious Atonement. If you haven't read this book, you must get it Here.

2. The leaves are changing. I hate to say good-bye to summer, but have to admit, fall is a beautiful season in these West Virginia hills. 

3. Son #2 has been writing shorts he hopes to make into mini-movies. I get to add my beta two-cents. That's pretty awesome to share some creative thoughts with my baby.

Asma Bashir wants two things: a summer fling and her favorite '80s songs. During a trip to New York City to stay with relatives, she messes up in her pursuit of both. She loses track of the hunk she met on her airplane ride, and she does the most terrible thing she could possibly do to her strict uncle... ruin his most prized possession, a rare cassette tape.

A wild goose chase around Manhattan and Brooklyn to find a replacement tape yields many adventures -- blackmail, theft, a chance to be a TV star, and so much more. Amid all this turmoil, Asma just might be able to find her crush in the busiest, most exciting city in the world.

Medeia Sharif is a multi-published author, teacher, and a member of  Mensa. Yeah, Mensa. That group of certified geniuses. I tried to get in the club once- I was working in catering at the time and offered to deliver cookie trays to a meeting. 

Medeia has been a long-time bloggy friend and her books never fail to entertain.


  1. I had to laugh at the dandelion comment! Hey, at least your son will have no problem finding you in the stands.
    Hope the team wins tonight!

  2. lol watch out, people like to mow over dandelions

  3. Aw, have fun tonight!! Senior year, man...insanity. My nostalgia coupled with acute senioritis is reaching all time idea how I'll make it through the rest of the year. I keep having "last" thoughts...last time I'll do this or that. Best of luck to your son (and you as well, moms probably need it more) as senior year continues!

  4. My high school colors were blue and gold too. At least you'll brighten the stands on a dreary night. Hope the team wins! I loved Medeia's book, Hot Pink in the City. I'm definitely going to be reading more. I'm sure she's going to appreciate the shout-out. Enjoy the weekend! Love you!!! Eva

  5. What an eventful week! Sorry you'll look like a dandelion, but at least you'll be a dry dandelion. Yay for sharing creative thoughts with your son! It's wonderful that he respects your talents. Medeia is just awesome, isn't she? She's incredibly prolific and I wish she'd send some of that my way... Thanks again for reading and reviewing Soul Cutter. I'm still smiling. :)

  6. Nah, I like dandelions, they are so pretty in the green grass. Best of luck for the game. Enjoy your raincoat. How come I didn't get a thong?

  7. you are funny! I can just picture that raincoat had one of those - you can see me from a different planet - ones in Germany, hehe.
    You have a friend in Mensa? Impressive and good for her. Sounds like I have to check out her books - if I have time to read that is. Blessings and have a great week.

    P.S. What theme are you using for your blog, it is very pretty!

  8. Hey Elizabeth,

    You are not imagining this! Yep, I'm actually here commenting.....

    For spore, eh, a dandelion :) Here's to a good result in the game.

    All the best to the lovely Medeia with her latest book. Did I ever mention she's one of my starstruck fans?

    Of course, a thong is a sandal you wear on the beach, right!

    Enjoy your Sunday.

    Gary :)

  9. Sounds like Son #2 inherited your writing talent! Glad your raincoat arrived in time...and I hope it ended up not raining, after all.

  10. I can just imagine you standing out among all that blue! LOVE that you get to share your art with your son, and he with you. Felt a bit of that with my daughter during the wedding planning. I was super artsy making stuff when they were young. It was fun to see some of it rubbed off on my daughter. Medeia's book sounds fun!

  11. Oh, and my step-dad was a member of Mensa. He quit. Said there wasn't much in it for him...

  12. Oh, and I always sing praises of Precious Atonement, I loved that book... Melissa is a wonderful story teller.

  13. That's awesome that your writing is rubbing off on your son. And hey, better to look like a dandelion than be soaking wet. Or hold an umbrella for 4 hours straight.

  14. You'll be spotted in the crowd, that's all that matters :-)

  15. Yay! I get to comment again. Medeia rocks!

  16. If you're luck's as good as mine, it won't even rain ;) Good thing is, your son will have no trouble seeing you cheer! Enjoy!

  17. Nothing wrong with being frugal, as long as you keep enjoying life!

  18. I bet you'll look smashing in that dandelion yellow coat!

  19. I like yellow! You'll definitely stand out. Good luck to your son, and the movie thing sounds pretty cool too.

  20. Rock the dandelion look! It will be awesome! So cool about your son making short films!

  21. Hopefully with this can provide improvements to the current web I manage and can produce for my future sales.

  22. Thank you for featuring my book. :)

    Yellow is such a happy color. Yay on your son's writing and the leaves changing. I wish our leaves would change.

  23. I want to see a picture of you in your coat!
    Congrats, Medeia. :)
