Top of the Mornin'

What's Jack up to? Chilling on a Monday. I think he's as happy as I am to have the house free of teens for a few hours. I know right, Jack? Then tension goes down, like 10 notches. Whew.


Happy St. Patrick's day to you all. I hope you have a fun day and let's give a birthday shout out to the lovely Patricia of pve design . She's my very own bannner designer that I interviewed here.


I hope you have a wonderful year Patricia and all your dreams come true.





This was a pretty busy weekend in Kwana land and unfortunately the migraines were kicking my butt-hard. I'm still following doctors orders and not taking any pain meds. Ugh. Giving birth to the twins was easier and I went into labor with them not once, not twice, but three times! TMI? Sorry. Moving on...
The twins had a big extra credit assignment where they had to go to the Metropolitan Museum of Art to do a Global History assignment. What good teachers they have. So the DH, DD, DS and I got to take a short ride to the city to check out The MET. I'm Tim Gunn in this photo.



The Parking Gods were smiling upon us and a spot magically opened up on 87th and 5th. OMG! That like NEVER happens.
The museum was pretty crowded and unfortunately the projects weren't in my favorite wings, but I did get to spend a little time pretending I was on Project Runway by checking out the Temple of Dendur and even standing in front of Christian's inspiration picture: Portrait of Andres de Andrade-i-la Col. by Bartolomé Esteban Murillo. Yeah. He rocked it.

So tonight I'll be watching Dancing with the -Stars? I have to say Stars? Because come on, are you kidding me here? But I'll still watch and find some E list celeb to get behind.

After that The Bachelor is back and this time he bla- no, he's British! Just as good! This is the show I hate to watch, but always do. I have to support my dear Nana who at the end of every season curses out the Bachelor calling him all sort sorts terrible names because he didn't pick the "amazing" girl that she thought he should. Yeah she vows never to watch either, but gets suckered in too. After the, 'where are they now?' show last week. We both decided to give the hot Brit a go, but thought the girls seemed very "Rock of Love". Scary.

How was your weekend?

Best,

Kwana

Happy Birthday, Dear Friend. What a lucky day!

Let me get this straight? You watch Survivor, Dancing with the Stars AND The Bachelor? Are you my secret twin?

Brown Girl Gumbo said...

I've never watched DWTS because I never know any of the z-list performers!! However, this year, R&B singer Mario will give ballroom dancing a try. I might tune in to see him perform once or twice!

I stopped watching the Bachelor after the second season I think. When will they have an African-American bachelor???? Flavor of Love doesn't count! LOL!

paola said...

Just stopped by your blog after you left a comment on mine... reality TV and knitting is a potent combination (though I'm not so convinced by the Vicky B love)

Kwana said...

Yes, Maria I think I am your secret twin!

Hi, BG! Maybe after Barack is Pres we'll have an African-American bachelor?!

Thanks for stopping by, Paola. Give VB a try although she's not for everyone.

Mrs. Limestone said...

The Bachelor is one of my hate to love shows too. And after last year, you can count me in with your grandmother as someone who screams at the tv. I could have just killed Brad!!!

But Ill be watching again this year because I love my trash tv :)

Kwana said...

Wow, good to know Mrs. Limestone! I'm glad you were yelling at the tv too.

musette said...

Hey Kwana! Thanks for the good wishes. Your so positive! By the way...have you seen Bravo's Housewives of NYC? Whoa. Talk about love to hate.

Cote de Texas said...

Thanks for the comment - you think I was being funny about that painting look like my fat ass? Well.... I've never!!! ahahaah!!!

Cute blog you have there. My husband has mirgraines too - about 2 or 3 a week and boy does he suffer.

thanks again! Joni

Maureen McGowan said...

I just can't get behind Dancing with the Stars. Like you say... stars? Really? I'm waiting for So You Think You Can Dance to be back. Now that's real dancing. :-) Who am I kidding. I'll probably watch -- unless I go to the movies. I should go to the movies...

Kwana said...

Hi Musette, yes I've seen those "housewives". It's so crazy. You know I'm watching!

Thanks Cote de Texas. I'm a huge fan of your blog! I'm sorry about you DH's migraines. They are so awful. Please come back and visit my blog about nothing.

I say go to the movies and still watch, Maureen. You know you wanna! lol.

I totally agree with the 'stars' assesment. Maybe they should add a ? mark to the title. Dancing with the Stars? Do you ever watch Amazing Race? I love it. I'm captivated by VB, I can see why the Brits were too.

Eileen said...

I'm with you about the Bachelor. I love and hate it at the same time. What is wrong with us. I also watch "Dancing with the Stars" but I think "So you think you can Dance" is a much better show. With so much Reality TV and my new plasma TV will I ever get any sleep???

Kwana said...

Oh, Christina I LOVE The Amazing Race. It really is my fave. Even over Survivor.

Eileen, No sleep for you. I'm afraid to get a new tv and we need one. A new tv and DRV? Danger.
