Friday, June 18


It's been a busy week around here. Yesterday was my middle son's 17th birthday was yesterday. This little guy:

His golden birthday--he was 17 on the 17th! And he's an L.A. Lakers fan, so it was exciting for him to have his team win the championship on his birthday.

In addition to that, I'm hosting a bridal shower for a beautiful young woman tomorrow. Guest list of 50. SO exciting.

Except that the air conditioning on the main level of my house has stopped working. Uh-oh.

Did I mention that it's been in the 90's every day this week? Oh, boy.

Your prayers would be appreciated!


  1. I love a shower! Sending cool thoughts your way :)

  2. Oh no! I'll definately be praying for a divine breeze to pass through your house tomorrow :-) Have a blessed weekend!

  3. why is it that the air-conditioning always goes out when it is so screaming hot? yikes! here's hoping you can get a great AC guy to come fix the problem :)
    i know your shower will be amazing... i can tell from here that you are the most amazing hostess. really, truly.

  4. Oh, girl, do I feel your pain or what??! Our upstairs unit was fixed....$500 later. :( Before they got the part, we had to hang a heavy blanket on the stairwell so that the downstairs unit didn't overwork itself trying to get the cool air upstairs.

    You must be the best hostess b/c you are always hosting bridal showers. I hope the favor is returned when your boys get hitched. ;)

    Happy 17th Birthday to the birthday boy. :)

  5. Happy Birthday to your handsome son! Love all of the gorgeous red hair in your family. I have always wanted it.

    Oh no! It has been soooo hot. I hope you can get it fixed soon and the party goes well Richella. Show us photos!

    Have a wonderful and *cool* weekend. ~Melissa :)

  6. If that guys little the lady beside him must have been on one shrimpifying reduction program! O you punny girl you!!! I guess he'll always be your little guy. A-type busy as usual I see! Happy anniversary of motherhood revisited! Glad they come in smallish developmental mode aren't we? Here's to a repaired AC or consequently toasty weekend!

  7. Wasn't a copper scavenger was it?

  8. Sorry for leaving my contractive apostrophe out before! Needed that English lesson...or maybe just an admonishment to edit. Errors in elision!!! O my!!
