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!

They're Just Like YOU!

So the abiding theme for the McCain/Palin ticket is that they are JUST LIKE YOU! You know, "average Joes"...

So lemme see how they are just like me:


John McCain owns at least 4 properties but most likely 7, according to Newsweek and the house they raised their children in --in Arizona is 15,000 sq. ft. and sits on 2.7 acres. It has 13 bedrooms and 14.5 bathrooms.(They sold that one though for 3 million dollars in 2006.

My house: 1 home, 1561 sq. ft. and has a mortgage, 3 bedrooms, and 2 baths.


Kawasaki's 704 series, and the color is 34 gray, made of titanium, rimless and retail for between $375 without lenses and about $700, with lenses. The best part? The lenses are made in Japan.

My eyewear: Frame and lenses, with insurance cost me $70.00 from Pearl Vision Center at the mall.

CARS: The senior senator from Arizona counts a 2005 VW convertible among his 13 cars, and his running mate from the great state of Alaska drives a fire-engine-red Jetta diesel.

My cars: Sparky and I each have a Saturn Ion, 4 door. (2004 & 2006)

The Alaska governor bought a $2,500 jacket from Saks Fifth Avenue designed by Valentino Garavani to wear for her acceptance as the nominee for V.P.

For the debate: Palin paired her extremely expensive looking (I think it was shining!) black suit with a saucy French braid, fresh highlights, AND red heels!

My clothes: I have a beautiful pantsuit from JcPenney that I splurged on several years ago for a grand total of $80.00. I will plead the 5th on the subject of stilettos. :-)

There you have it. They are just like the average American, as you can clearly see.

And now, I believe I will stop talking about this nonsense and return this blog to it's normal subjects of life, decorating, and my beautiful baby grandson! In fact, here is a photo as a down payment on my promise!

Happy Friday!!! xoxo

Were her shoes RED? How vampy. I shouldn't say that, it's sexist. I'm saying it in a Mr. Rockwell sort of way. Gender-neutral. Like, if Joe had worn red shoes, I'd be all like, "What the hell?"... so I'm fair like that.

Oh they were red! Read a great line about how she is a THE RULES girl...(a book from the 90's)

Check out yahoo for several photos of her shoes. Someone asked if the media got a photo of Biden's wingtips too? I'm guessing not! :-)
