Mum likes reading, decorating, shopping with the girls, and Starbucks. She also feels funny writing in the 3rd person. Papa (also known as Sparky) is currently looking at me with a blank stare having asked him to add something about himself to the blog. (Now he wants to say something) The only thing he loves more in life than music and Coke is his wife and kids. (Awww...) :) Little Lotte is a genius on the computer and makes me fall over laughing every day with her quick wit. She loves computers and animals. Sweet Pea abandoned her family and moved to Phoenix for work and is now married as of 2/28/06. She is beautiful and smart and the most nurturing person I know. She gave me the greatest gift ever when she made me a grandmother. I am the proud Mum Mum to Andrew Christopher. There are no words to describe the joy of having a grandson!

Unless you are flying SOUTHWEST airlines...

Dress for Weight Loss Success
Show Off Your Favorite Parts

Each of us has a favorite body part - or we should. Perhaps you have one, or several, areas you think are worth accentuating. If you do feel that way, then good for you. As you get closer to your fitness/health/weight loss goals, you will likely want to show off more of your body, highlighting your best features:

Thin wrists? Wear some bracelets or bangles to show them off.
Great legs? Wear miniskirts at least twice a week.
High collar bones? Get yourself some scoop neck tops.
Tuck in that shirt and belt your waist if it's something worth showing off.
Wear tanks or cap-sleeved tops to...

So have you read about the Southwest Airlines incidents? Read below... *******************

Airline dress code not on minds of many
Tucson Citizen

In the wake of Southwest Airlines confronting two women passengers it said were showing too much skin, most folks at Tucson International Airport on Thursday were not concerned.

The first passenger who said she was confronted by Southwest about her clothing was 23-year-old Kyla Ebbert. She said last week she was asked to adjust her sweater and short skirt before boarding a flight from San Diego to Tucson in July.
The second, 21-year-old Setara Qassim, was flying from Tucson to Burbank, Calif. She had to wrap herself and her green halter-style dress in an airline blanket. The airline confirmed Ebbert's claim but said it did not have a record of Qassim's complaint, The Associated Press reported Wednesday.

"It's all very silly," said Southwest passenger Michael Arroyo. "In the '60s and '70s the uniform for them, they were called stewardesses then, was hot pants and boots."

****** me: AND Southwest Airlines was known as the LOVE AIRLINE! Here's a photo of their uniforms from that era...

Arroyo, who said he had no problem with the long-gone uniforms, said he sees folks clad even more scantily on many flights he's taken.

When it comes to revealing clothing, one passenger said he's never had a problem with it. He said if it's too revealing, it would not be appropriate.

"There's a lot of kids here," he said. "And it all depends on the person. If they're young and sexy, it's OK."

************* me: Are you still reading? Cause my mouth just hit the floor on that one!! He's gonna make a FINE husband!

Davonna Blair, 18, was in the Southwest ticket line on her way home to Evansville, Ind. She said she had not heard about the airline clothing issue.

"I've gotten looks at how I dress sometimes," she said.

Still, Blair said she's never been kicked out of places because of her clothes, nor did she think a dress code for airlines would be a good idea.

"The only thing that might bother me is if someone was showing their behind or a nipple popped out," she said.

************me: And then they would just book them for the Superbowl to sing with Justin Timberlake!
