Bets, it was a really beautiful plane ride. I was snapping my camera like a crazy person.
That's awesome that you're into The Bachelor. I can just see you getting all into it and talking to the TV. I've never really gotten into it but it would be FUN to watch it with you. :)

It sounded so serene and beautiful. Id be snapping away too!! HA HA- I luv the bachelor- I find it amusing the way some of the girls- most of them act. Its hilarious.
I do I say: Hey no no I said not her! oh man bad choice! whaaaaaaat! no ih ah yikes pick her yes!
If you came over we could watch and have spin and arty dip, and popcorn, and 7-layer dip and ... the list goes on.

SEVEN-LAYER DIP, I'M COMING FOR YOU! WAIT FOR ME! What's arty dip? Sounds cool.

HAAAA.Artichoke and spinach- but I promise I will only use frozen- not fresh-e-coli packaged! :-)

Oh and I make a fab crab dip- cold

18 September 2006 at 19:53  
Blogger Colleen said...

Betsy. Stop it. I haven't had breakfast yet and now I feel like porking out on dip and chips. I'm salivating. Quit it. Seriously. Or, alternatively, send me all of your dips in the mail. Otherwise it is just pure unjustified torture.

HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! Sorry- I just had a waffle with whipped cream!!!!

Blogger Colleen said...

Basically the last few chats I've had with you revolve around FOOD. Cranberry dip and waffles with whipped cream and coffee and berries and ice cream and seven-layer dip and artichoke and spinach dip and cold crab dip.

YUMMERS! So what are you eating right now? I'm not eating anything but it was KD for me tonight. For some reason I just like the stuff.

I know! We must be going mental! Or is there soemthing your not telling me!!!!!!!?????????LOL!!!!!
What the heckis KD????? Killer dip or what???!!!

Im going to get a bowl of chocolate ice cream soon- and more whipped cream! yikes! Its the monthly hormones calling.

Hey you know the show lost?!! My Mom's super good friends Son is on it! The one with the beard@! cool hey!

19 September 2006 at 22:28  
Blogger Colleen said...

Killer Dip. That's hilarious! I am laughing my face off here, Bets. You crack me up! KD aka. Kraft Dinner!!! Girl, you know it's true. Come on you get that cheap cheesy pasta craving, don't you?

And why oh why can't I picture the guy with the beard? Oh! Is he one of "the others"? There's a guy with a fake beard, I think. Anyhoo, whoever he is it's cool that your connected! :)

HEE HEE, oh KD! Nice with lots of Ketchup!!! Yummy

Oh no Invasion- sorry I meant that not lost

20 September 2006 at 16:46  
Blogger Colleen said...

YAY for lots of ketchup (and sometimes I throw some extra cheese in). Slurp.

Alas, I've never seen Invasion.

You know this is kind of fun. It's like we have our own secret conversation that no one knows about. We should start wearing trench coats and speaking in code like this:

"Wuk nee shnozzle wuk luk?"

And we'd be armed with super soakers.

We should see how long this goes before anyone notices.

HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! ( With tears in my eyes- laughing hysterically!You make me laugh so hard girl!)

yup extra cheese! And crumbled bacon!

Dark Black trench coats- and those shady looking brimmed hats ( with maybe a secret pin on them?) Like a code to get into the club- hee hee

Yeah!! Super soakers! and paintballs to make it colorful!

luv to u.

B ( aka- the big B in the little ol TOWN of AAAAAAAAAAA.

20 September 2006 at 18:59  
Blogger Colleen said...

Definitely paintballs. 'Twould KICK! Love it!

Okay. This is on a COMPLETELY different note but don't you think "muckluck" is like the greatest word EVER? I was thinking a great name for a store would be Mucklucks for Jesus. I guess we'd sell furry boots and make people feel special. Of course we'd still be wearing our trench coats whilst eating bacon-laden KD. People would come for miles, I swear.

Ha! Say "bacon laden bacon laden bacon laden" over and over. It's fun and very satisfying.

HeeheeheeheHAhohoHEEhahahahee. :D

I luv that word! Its kinda like numchuck! but we would never use them on people :(

Or Mucklucks R Us- Yes we could sell uggs- with like a beaded bracelet with ones name on them attached.

Right now Im laughing so hard- I almost gagged AHHHHHHHHH! cough cough on my lemondade!
At the same moment I heard Brandon snort- snore- snorff! realy loud! Now thats spooky.

Ahhh. Is it a full moon???

Yes we could aldo sell the KD in our trenchy coats!!and take pics with the people too:-)

Luv, Bacon muckluck.

20 September 2006 at 23:25  
Blogger Colleen said...

Every once in a while Mark will say "It's better than a kick in the head with a frozen mukluk" and it makes me laugh every time.

Don't laugh too hard. I wouldn't want you to choke on any bones or phlegm or anysuch thing. You'll wake Brandon!

I can just see those pics - us hugging happy people in their mukluks and uggs with KD sticking out of their happy smiling mouths. :D

22 September 2006 at 10:14  
Anonymous Betsy said...

Ha Ha That would not be pleasant!

MUhaaa! Its ok if I laugh now - Brandon is in School now- so no worries!

Hee Hee

Yes Kd would be so tasty on a cold winter day...

Betsy, I am sleepy. I think I will toddle off to the Land of Nod and thereby slumber.

Do you have an exercise regimen?

I don't.

I need one.

Alas! My middle is turning to a fudge-like consistency!

22 September 2006 at 22:48

Colleen, Im sleepy too. Have a nice sleepy bye.

No no reimen here. Maybe one day. Sleep is my exercise- Muhaaaaa!

Blogger Colleen said...

Yes, sleep is GREAT exercise. Slumber loo-loo land for me, too. This week I could've slept in every morning, I think. The bed was SOOOOO comfy and my face felt like it was pasted to the pillow. Sweet bliss.

I see the wind blowing a yellow autum tree. It is havelf in sunshine, half in shade. I am happy when I look at it.

How was your snooze? What are you wearing?

I'm wearing tights and a sweater and skirt. MAN, I love tights. It just makes me feel like a cute little school girl. I wanna go jump in a pilo o' leaves!

23 September 2006 at 15:45  
Blogger Colleen said...

I'm thirsty.

ah bliss is nice.

The tree sounds very pretty.

I wore a brown- choco moo moo sweater to work and a beige brown- with beads on it under and black dress pants.

r u still in your jammies???

HAAA HAAA. Did you jump into the leaves??!!! tee hee

Im making some pasta now with bacon, tomato and cheese slurp!

23 September 2006 at 19:54  
Blogger Colleen said...

Mark and I just finished RV. We laughed alot.

I'm not in my jammies right now. No sirree bobby. I'm still in my tights.

PIZZA. We had pizza. But no leaf jumping. I should have just run into a leaf pile but I DIDN'T! SO SUE ME!!! GO AHEAD!

That sounds like a funny movie. Ill have to see it!

Ha Ha tights are in now you know!

Yummy! Panago?

25 September 2006 at 22:03  
Blogger Colleen said...

It was good for a giggle. Snicker snicker snort, etc.

What? Tights are in? Eep! I didn't know they'd been out! Gak. I'm a fashion faux pas fool. I just love my tights. Keep me warm. Make my big legs look skinnier (shhhh, don't tell). They are a friend to me when I am alone. They tell great jokes.

Yeah, I'm a nerd.

No jumping. Too late. I want to jump. Believe me, I do! But it's dark. And I don't think I could locate a pile o' autumn leaves in zee black o' night.

No Panago. We don't have Panago! Long live Anastasia Panagopoulous! We just ordered in from a local joint but it's darn fine pizza. I always add feta once I get it home and just load it up, baby!

Hey, Bets! Tell me about Brandon. What's he like? What do you love about him? I know nothing. :)

25 September 2006 at 22:28

Yes Checkout Gap - they have all the tights and long sweater! Pippi here we come! Kinda cozy Id think. no?

Im a geek then.

Its so sunny and beautiful here in Abby today:-)

Oh yum load on the feta and tabasco sauce if you dare- nah Id take the jalepenos- I could eat them by the spoonful. yummy.

What can I say about my sweetie pie- hes a tender young man- who holds things dear to his heart- hes caring and loving to all around. He loves to read and is helpful to his Mommy.

I love his innocence and care for others. Hes adorable.He will say the cutest things just because....

A few months ago- he was having a bath and he said come here- I said" What is it?? I go running in and his reply: I just want to tell you I love you Mommy. Your the best.
AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW. if that doesnt touch a heart- dont know what does.

Hes a Wonderful Son.....

Blogger Colleen said...

Oh Bets, tell me more! He sounds like he's inherited your kind and gentle ways. What a gift and a blessing he is to you. It makes me so happy just thinking about it that I have tears in my eyes. I'm soooooo glad that God gave you something so BEAUTIFUL out of something so hard. It makes me love Jesus just a little more. YAY GOD!

aww that makes tears in my eyes now!

thanks for writing that- I try to exemplify a good attitude so he may grow up to do the same. He is such a blessing and miracle to me.

God gave me a lovely boy....

Ill post a special letter soon on my blog- you may even get out the kleenex.....

We can sniffle and smile together until we are floating in boogers and tears. :)

He DID give you such an amazing kid. I'm deeply joyful for you. I will look forward to your post and I'll be prepared with a truck load of tissue.

Egads! Sleepiness is beseiging me. I'm so very full (late dinner) and I have an early morning tomorrow. I'm hosting a baby shower for a friend of mine. My place will be swamped with ladies!

xoxox to you, too.

P.S. Do you still want me to call you Bacon Mukluk?
Just asking.

Anonymous Betsy said...

LOL!!! I tryed! yes sure my new nickname :-)

Haaaaa. Yes lots of wet faces and red eyes, and stuffed up nosies?- is that a word- maybe in Baby language! Jaaaa haaaaa.

Im loving Bran so much! Hes my sweetie. I am joyful over the highest cloud.

How was the Baby shower???!!! Sounds fun! Wish I could come:-)

30 September 2006 at 20:33  
Blogger Colleen said...

I think it just may be the oddest nickname ever. I don't think it suits you but it is funny. Oh the dilemna of it all.

I love that! - I am joyful over the highest cloud. I may have to steal that from you at some point. It warms my cockles.

The baby shower was good! Very laid back. Lots of food but not over the top too much. Just right. And everyone seemed to have someone to talk to - I was on the lookout for it. Sometimes things like baby showers can be very awkward with the sitting in a big circle and the not knowing anyone. I wanted everyone to be at ease. T'was nice.

me too- we should change it- How about Sugar Momma! LOL.

Such tough choices in life for names I tell ya.

I am over the biggest fluffiest! softest cloud ever! HA HA HA

Let the cockles warm.......
oh yummy I bet you put on a delicious spread out yonder.
I know and all the games they play. Id rather just play with Babykins:)

Blogger Colleen said...

Sugar Momma, hey? How 'bout just Sug (short for Sugar)? Or Sugar Booger. But you have to say "booger" with the same sound as "sugar". I think that would be adorable for you. I like just Sug. Do you?

Her baby is so cute. She said he looks like an old man and that he arrived to this world looking like an old man. Very sweet.

Babies are for smooching.

Right, Sug?


4 October 2006 at 23:36

Sug rocks!!!!!!!! We have to think of a name for you!

I love babies. I want a few more...

kissy kissy

Glad you like Sug, Sug.

How many babies, Sug? I held a verykissable baby today. I don't think I kissed him though. But I did fuzz with his hair alot and blurped on his toes.

Shmoochy shmoo.

Im allergic to Mommys cat- oh dear I keep sneezing!

8 October 2006 at 23:24  
Blogger Colleen said...

Oh no! That's too bad! Today I was thinking how nice it would be to have a cat all curled up on my lap just a'purring away. And all the while I was thinking that you were sneezing your sugar booger head away. :(

My brother used to have a cat named Motorhead because he purred so loud. HA! :D

We'd love to get a cat but we have a friend who's allergic so we won't.

Is Branden allergic?

Well maybe cute but my nose was blowing like a chimmney!

Hello jello! I'm back! And I wonder if you'll even find this one since it's been over two months since last I wrote here. A soccer team of babies, you say? EGADS, is what I say. MERRY CHRISTMAS, SUG! I hope you see this.
