Just the other night, I was sitting around the living room with roommates, friends and moms and somehow my love for hot dogs and macaroni and cheese surfaced. Which led us to this question: What did your mom pack in your school lunches when you were little?
I remember what my mom used to pack....
Middle School. Every lunch period was the same. I would sit down with my friends at a portable table with attached plastic seats, trying to ignore the school cafeteria smell. I would get out my rumpled brown paper sack and wonder what in the world I would find today. More often that not, I would find this:
A Hot Dog (with ketchup) wrapped in foil
A Can of Pepsi
A bag of Cool Ranch Doritos.
For some reason, I was so embarrassed by this lunch! Don't know if it was the fact that I actually liked hot dogs or that they were wrapped in foil! Why not a pizza lunchable like the other kids?? Come on mom, I just want to blend!
In hindsight, that was a ridiculously cool lunch!! Seriously? My mom packed Hot Dogs and Pepsi?? What more could a squirty little 6th grader with frizzy curly hair want??
*This sounding familiar? Right. It's because I took it from the old blog. I'm in the process of meshing the two. Bare with me.

KIMBERLY, AKA Lil' Kim: Kimberly is often found running on the slick pavement around the perimeter of the pool. She'll stop occasionally for a Corona Light and some fried okra but this girl will do cartwheels off the diving board until she is blue in the face. Kim is happy to frolic in the pool, but is more entertained playing practical jokes on old ladies sunbathing in their lounge chairs. Despite her high activity level around the pool, she often dips her feet in the water to cool down. Kim is just waiting for someone who can make a bigger splash than hers. Can't wait to see who's up for the challenge!
*A note from the pool monitor: Kim is now making her way over to the stairs in the shallow end (ahem.... Tuscaloosa) to take a breather. I believe this is just the cue Kim's crazy pool partner needs to approach his one.

Ha. Well not exactly. I'm just feeling dramatic.
Revlon lipstick in Earthy seems like the perfect compliment to my spicy little mood.
A coworker just told me I look dissheveled. Is it the crazy lady bun on the top of my head or the Don't Ask ME Another Question look across my face that gave me away?
