Hi everyone! Hope you've been having a great spring-I've been so busy that I'm muy behind on EVERYTHING, especially the blog & podcast. No worries, though, I have big plans in store!

In the meantime, I wanted to be sure and share something really special that happened over a week ago. I woke to find my twitter feed exploding with messages of congratulations! It seems Latina magainze had named me among their Top 10 Mommy Bloggers-COMO??!!!

Farewell and thanks for the FUNicello!

I was so sad to hear about the passing of Annette Funicello this morning! I've been a fan my entire life, from watching her on Wonderful World of Disney to my obsession with her "Beach" movies. I love her music too, especially "Tall Paul". Did you know the song "Puppy Love" was about Annette? Paul Anka wrote it in response to criticism about their relationship. It's true!

But my favorite Annette song has gotta be "Pineapple Princess"! I found this beautiful Youtube video of the song, over clips from those unforgettable "Beach" movies.

Farewell, irresistable Annette-See you real soon. Why? Because we LOVE you!

Just to give you an idea-here's the first 2:

Are you participating in #VEDA? If so please share your Youtube channel and I'll be sure and check YOU out!

Weighin' In (at goal) PLUS a local Weight Watchers Event

OK, this week was a challenge.
I'm sure they missed me, too! (image via wikipedia)
I ate out almost every day PLUS cocktails, cupcakes AND a visit to the pub-and that was before "All You Can Eat Candy Day" (Easter). Yes, I indulged in chocolates with almost as much abandon as I indulged in The Real Housewives (which I'd given up for Lent-oh, how I missed them!).
