...tired of being admired...

so, debR asked why the previous post reminded me of Madeline Kahn. it's b/c of the song she sings in Blazing Saddles. she plays Lili Van Shtupp and sings the song "I'm Tired....Tired of being admired" and was nominated an academy award for it (thanks rob for that info). she's very dietrich-esque.

we're getting ready for a quick camping trip at Emerald Bay. we're going with our good friends, The Myers family. i don't think rob has seen them in more than a year. could that be right? we last saw them (we being the kids and i) in may. we are greatly looking forward to the trip. our whole family hasn't been on a camping trip since the february before rhys was born! the kids and i had an overnight camping trip in the palomar mountains with my cousin and her boys. but it was just overnight and the bugs were overwhelming for the mamas. the temps are supposed to be in the mid-60s to mid-70s during the day, and 40s at night. i'm looking forward to cool weather!

have a great weekend everyone.

Soooooooooo stinkin' envious - mid 60's & 70's? I'd love some of that! Enjoy!

i know! the weather here in sparks broke last week - after MANY MANY TOOOOOO many days of 100+ and high 90s, it was down to the mid to high 80s to the mid 90s.
thanks for stopping by :)

Camping? I would love to camp but with heat reaching 107, there is no way I am coming out of the a/c.

Michele says hi!
