You can call me TV for short...

At least that's what little Grant Brown has decided my name is. I spent Thursday afternoon with my friend Carolynne and her little guy Grant. He can say my name just fine. You tell him to say Evey and he says Evey. No problem. But wait two mins and ask my name again and he says Tevey instead of Evey. Cute.

Quick, Everyone Get Divorced!!!

After seeing this headline at I have realized that Chris and I should just have the divorce papers drawn up ASAP.

Beyonce and Jay-Z Heard Bickering

This is why the media and ALL those rag mags are SO lame. Bickering? Are you kidding?

Ladies, PLEASE............

...put on a bra. Seriously! No one needs to see what you share with the world when you don't wear one. I mean why would you not wear won? Does it not just feel gross? Do you enjoy flowing freely for all the world to see?

Speaking of it just me or do NONE of them offer any real support?

Evey's Special Day

That's what Chris called it because I was so excited to go, just like a little kid:)

We had a great day. The weather was beautiful in the 70's most of the day. The drive was so pretty. We had never been to Vermont before and scenery was so pretty. Although Chris did make a good point that it will probably be much prettier once summer arrives and everything is in full bloom and green.

The drive up there took us a little over 3 hours. We stopped on the way though to have a picnic lunch. It was great to sit outside and eat with the sun shining and looking out at the green mountains. Not quite the mountains I am used to back home in Alberta but they were mountains regardless even if they were mini.
The factory itself was fun. The tour was only 30 mins long and was a bit of a bummer because they weren't actually making ice cream that day. We did get to see the big ole room where they do everything though and that was neat. I just wish there had actually been people working and we could have seen the ice cream on the conveyor belts and stuff. Oh well, maybe next time. We got to sample some YUMMY mint chocolate chunk ice cream. Chris of course pushed to the front of the line with all the little kids. We tried to assure him the ice cream in the back tasted the same as the ones in the front. He didn't seem to care, he wanted the ones in the front. And I'm the little kid? Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight!!!

After we left Ben and Jerry's we hit up a cute little cheese shop--Cabot Cheese. We ate LOTS of cheese samples and bought some goodies. After that we decided to take a drive through the state capital of Vermont--Montpelier. Chris commented that growing up he never would have imagined himself driving through Montpelier, Vermont. I have to agree with him, one of those random places you never think you will go. Especially with my being from Western Canada and him the Western USA. Just goes to show that you never know where life will take you.

Grumpy Old Man

The other day Chris and I were walking out of Starbucks and overheard an old man yelling on his cell phone.

"Who the hell does she think she is? She can drop dead!"

LOL! I don't know who he was talking to but he was mad. We couldn't help but laugh as we walked on by. Too funny!

Happy Birthday Doggie

Today is Belle's birthday. She is 5 and somehow still has more energy than Chris and I know what to do with. We got her a new toy, a new collar and a HUGE "busybone" which she has been eating for a little bit now and has barely made a dent in it. Oh and she is drooling. Funny!

Ok so I realize my absences around here are becoming more and more frequent. I really am sorry for that. Things just really haven't been all that exciting around here so I really haven't had much to tell you. Anything sports related goes over on our sports blog(cemcsports) so as not to bore you non sports fans. So really, that doesn't leave me with a lot to talk about on here these days.

But I think now that spring is here things will get a little more exciting. Seems when the weather is nice you get out more and have more stories to share. So with that being said I will get things started by talking to you about crosswalks.

Why crosswalks you ask? Well, let me tell you. Crosswalks are everywhere. They are on their own, sometimes they are with a flashing yellow light, sometimes they are at an actual intersection. What I have really been wondering for quite sometime is WHY do they even bother wasting the time painting those lines on the road here in Boston? Why waste the paint? Why waste the wages you will need to pay to the men to go out there and paint the lines on the road? No one bothers to stop for you when you are in a crosswalk around here so I really think they should just get rid of them all together. Save us all the hassle. I have stood at a crosswalk for 10 minutes or more because the traffic is so busy and NO ONE will stop to let me cross. I almost got hit 3 different times in one day last week whilst trying to cross the road. Do you think the mentally challenged drivers around here give a crap? Heck no. They honk at me like I have done something wrong. All I can do is shake my head and walk away. WHERE did these people get drivers licenses? Is it mandatory to be a jack ass if you are from Boston and drive a car? I guess the only logical answer to that is yes. The funny thing is that the very same jerks who almost hit you while you are in the crosswalk are the same morons who will get mad at you for not stopping for them in the crosswalk. OY VEY!!Perhaps this guy.....or this lady should come patrol the crosswalks in Boston. She...or he could get a whole crew together and kick some serious butt against all the jack ass drivers who won't let me and many other innocent citizens cross the street.
God bless Boston!!!

A-Rod Beware

For you non baseball fans let me tell you in short who Alex Rodriguez is. Mostly known as A-Rod, he is a 3rd baseman for the New York Yankees. A-Rod is probably one of the most hated players in all of baseball. He is hated greatly here in Boston since he plays for the rival Yankees. The other day a school class was having of tour of Fenway Park when a Red-Tailed Hawk (who had made it's home on a ledge, and had an egg in the nest) swooped down and attacked a young girl. Scary stuff. Yet funny when her name was released. The girls name is Alexa Rodriguez.
I guess A-Rod better watch out when he and the Yankees come to town this season.

New Kids Are Back!!

I realize it is old news. But I just finally came to the realization that it is actually true. That the band that was oh so close to my heart for so many years is reuniting. I am excited mostly for nostalgic reasons. The very thought of it brings me back to my youth. To my poster plastered bedroom. Spending my allowance on Bop and Teen Beat magazines. Singing to the top of my lungs to every single song. They were so dreamy, yes I said dreamy. I along with every other girl swore the songs were written for us. Joey was always my favorite. He was just so little and so cute. *sigh*

You can laugh at me, I don't care. I know there are those of you who won't admit that you loved them too. But I loved them and I WILL go see them on their reunion tour and I WILL love it. I will go alone if I have to. I will be there waving my hands in the air and singing

"Oh oh oh oh oh, hangin tough"
