She Has a Pain in the Neck

What! What is that Cynthia up to now? Well, I had a tiny bit of surgery on my shoulder yesterday. It was about time too. I have been suffering from an injury to the rotator cuff since last July. I have tried lots of possible treatments, hoping to avoid surgery, but they just didn't help. I am feeling pretty "good" with the Lortab pain medication they sent home with me, so don't feel too sorry for me. However if you feel as though you need to drop over with a plate of cookies, who am I to try to stop you?

Lucky Lancome Lady

Okay, so Jordan and I signed up about a month ago for makeovers at Lancome at Dillard's. We show up last Saturday and we get all dolled up just for the fun of it. We had a blast as we always do going from cosmetic counter to cosmetic counter. We ended up at Lancome on the stage getting makeovers, we hopped over to Clinique and got the always fabulous gift bags there. Our usual sales clerk was snickering at us because it was so obvious we were flitter-fluttering from counter to counter. We found the Curious perfume by Brittney Spears 50% off. Jordan even got her hair styled. It was so curly that Christina said she looked like Captain Hook.

Then today I got a phone call that Jordan was the gift basket winner at Lancome!! I was thrilled because we didn't even know we had entered the drawing!! It was a total surprise. I guess because we are such Cosmetic Counter Junkies, they threw us a bone to keep us coming back. Well I guess it is going to work, because look at all this loot she won!! It is about 300 Dollars worth of product. I love Lancome and I ADORE DILLARD"S.

Thursday, March 20, 2008!! (massage;-)

I went for a massage today. My friend Rebecca has worked on me for years and years. She has been very patient with my issues. I would like to think that I look like this lovely image of this pretty model pictured here.

Unfortunately I think I look like this horse here on this table with poor Rebecca trying to make an impact. She gets in as deep as she possibly can. Today's massage must have left her exhausted.

Maybe one of these days I will be able to look as cute and content as this cat. If you have never had a massage, or if it has been a long time since your last one, what are you waiting for? Oh my gosh... it is sublime.

I really love these two. Tiny and Dave really raked up a storm today. Our Ponderosa pines have dropped millions of needles and cones. That being said, I giggled when I saw the similarities of this picture and that classic portrait "American Gothic". Dave has never taken a better picture.

Good Company

There is an old saying that says, you can understand a person by the company they keep. Meaning your choice in friends says a lot about who you are. My friend Patti was in town today, and even though we see each other rarely it is wonderful to have her in my circle of friends. EVERYONE loves Patti. So, I hope you can see some of the influence she has had in my life, by some of the choices I make. She has the most amazing family, and she is such a great example of womanhood. Thanks Patti, for your friendship.

"Hail Provo High"

This is Christina up to bat in her first day for Provo High JV Softball. I cannot begin to relate how freezing cold it was. The wind was absolutely biting through to the marrow. These girls "cowboy'ed - up" and played an awesome game. Christina really has taken advantage of attending a larger school and is getting involved in all that the school has to offer. I appreciate her going out of her comfort zone and having fun in sports this year. I cannot wait to see where the season takes the team. I also love heckling the the umpire, It was fun giving him a hard time.

Family Fun

We went to my niece's baby shower today. We had so much fun and she received so many darling baby girl clothes for London,her new baby daughter.

There was a dress/undress the baby doll relay and we had a blast watching my mother scream louder and louder as the baby doll got closer and closer to her. I was laughing so hard I wished I had a second pair of pants!
