Merry Christmas!

I'm going to be signing off until next week.

Packages to wrap, food to cook, parties to attend, books to read, laundry,

pedi/mani (teh hee)and all other essentials.

A massage would be nice, as would a facial. NO TIME.

So, Merry Christmas to all the Peeps. I hope you have a great one.

I will be back for a New Year's giveaway that also celebrates my 300th post.

Check back next week!

Is Everyone Ready?

OOOOOH. If you are I'm jealous.

Actually, I'm ready as I'll ever be. All I have left is purchasing food.

Because of the continuing root canal saga, I'm having to put my food in the blender.

Mr. Wonderful thinks this is a fabulous way to stick a few vegetables in so I will eat them and not know it.

I'm on to his ploys.

We will have all our children, grandchildren and The Parental Unit together
for the holidays.

I couldn't ask for a better gift.

Love my Peeps.

Soup Is On!!

Okay, I'm over my jeans episode. Mostly.

The Queen B gave me the most delicious soup recipe, and I just had to share it with you.

We are all going to The Parental Unit's house for a soup and snack Christmas thingy.

I don't know why I told you that.

Anyway, MAKE THIS SOUP. You will love me
The Queen B.


1 pkg. refrigerated 3 cheese tortellini (I had to get frozen and thaw it)

2 14oz boxes of low sodium chicken broth

1 10 oz container refrigerated Alfredo Sauce. I had to get the one on the

shredded deli-rotisserie chicken (the whole thing, trust me)

herbes de provence (1/2 T) This is optional. My grocery store never heard of this, so I did a couple shakes of basil instead.

parmesan cheese

Dump all the ingredients EXCEPT the parmesan in a soup pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until tortellini is soft.

Serve with parmesan cheese on top.


Stay In Your On Age Bracket (or not)

How I get myself in messes! Does anyone else ever do that?

For the L o n g e s t time I have wanted jeans with holes in them. I know they are for younger girls, twenty-somethings and thirty-cuties with good figures.

I am none of these.

I still have wanted some. I've gone up to complete strangers to ask them
"Who does your hair? and Where did you get your jeans?"

Most say, "I got them at Gap two years ago, etc. etc."

Last week, I had lunch with Queen B and forced asked nicely if she would take me in a teen-age store to look for some jeans.

They thought I was looking for The Princess until I told them a size.
The guy waiting on me--blinked once, and recovered nicely and said, "I'll see what we have in the back."

I think he went back there to laugh himself silly.

He eventually came back with a couple for me to try on. They were WAY too long but since this store does alterations, I felt like they would be great.

I wanted to leave them to be fixed, but the guy said they would shrink in the length and I might want to wash them first.


Next scene. Beachy Mimi washing jeans immediately.

OMGosh. They shrunk. ALL OVER.

I put them on and the waistband didn't even cover the essentials. I'm not talking about the back essentials...THE FRONT ESSENTIALS.

I just collapsed in a heap.

I was trying to crawl under the bed to suck my thumb when Mr. Semi-Wonderful (not quite over the non-sympathy of the tooth. Just a few more days and I will be) walked in the bedroom and said, "What's wrong?"

I stood up.

He tried. He really did. But the laughter just burst forth!

Note to self: GIVE IT UP.

Okay. I confessed. I feel SO much better.

Love my Peeps.


Let me tell you, Peeps.

I am in MISERY.

Got the root canal. Had to go back on Saturday to get more done.

I've been moaning ever since and I'm still thinking the dentist is not finished. AGONY.

Mr. Wonderful said very innocently, "Wow. If a tooth hurts this much, I would hate to see if you had some Real Serious Pain."

WHAT? Don't mess with Beachy Mimi in AGONY.

I sent Mr. Semi-Wonderful to get his teeth cleaned that very day (God was smiling because he got an appointment right away).

He came home moaning about his sore gums. Heh Heh

heh heh heh heh

No more comments about about my whining
tooth pain.

I tell you all that to explain that this tragedy happened the same time as the REVEAL and has totally made me selfish consumed me for a few days.

I hope to be back to my blogging self in a few days.

I know you are holding your breath. heh heh

Love My Peeps!

It IS Coming!!

Cyber-cookies to all! 

The Reveal will be any moment.

The person installing the new look has a power outage and therefore is at the mercy of the ELECTRIC COMPANY!

As soon as...the power returns she will
1.   feed her children and/or pets
2.   Vacuum--we all know how we hate it when we lose power and can't vac.
3.   do laundry--it's ALIVE and GROWS
4.   put up the Christmas tree--she has been busy working on my blog,
5.   go get a mani/pedi
6.  add a massage to that.   The shoulders just ACHE from too much computer time
7   drink lots of hot coffee or (in my case) cokes
8.  eat a cookie
9.  nap
10.  The Big Reveal!!

Karen@simplyamusingdesigns and the team there did the whole thing and I can't wait.   They are so creative

So, you Peeps may see it before I do.  They did a fabulous job and are very professional.

Later, Peeps.


I think all the winners have sent contact info, and should be getting your cards in the mail by next week.

I do appreciate all 10 of you that read,...that counts lurkers..., Beachy Mimi.

YOU HAVE 16 DAYS.    Sorry someone had to yell it for you last minute shoppers.

Some of the good deals I'm seeing make waiting worth it.   But, if you are looking for a specific item...good luck.

At the Beachy house, gifts always have a theme.   This year?    Not so much.   I guess my theme is silliness and fun.   Plus it has to fit in a gift bag.  I'll show you some pictures later.

Some Peeps might see what they were getting!

I have done this much:

mailperson:   got cookies
UPS guy:  got cookies
hair person:  got cookies
See my theme?

Trash men?   can't catch them but trying
Paperman?   too early for me
neighbors?  keeping the shades down and lights off...ran out of cookies










Time Is Up!!

Winners as soon as I can get Mr. Random Generator to come by.

I COULDN'T STAY AWAY (a giveaway!!)

...from my Peeps.

I'm missing all my Peeps.

Been waiting for the reveal but I just can't wait any longer.

I think I'll just have a giveaway now.

Just tell me if you have finished your shopping for the holidays, or where you are going for the holidays, or better still... tell me the favorite gift you have found for someone.

This giveaway will be 4,  YES FOUR giftcards for my store of choice  TARJAY.  They are $25 each and Mr. Random will do the selecting.

All you have to do is answer the questions and leave a way for me to get in touch with you.

Sign up ends Monday at 6 pm central.   Winners will be announced later Monday evening.   Unless it snows and then my  nose will be stuck to the window.

Best wishes to all and good luck.

Love my Peeps,
