Merry Christmas & I'm FURIOUS!!!!

Today Mr. Barefeet and I were out doing some shopping for a new TV. Walking through the parking lot we see a fellow( I use this term so very loosely) driving a convertible Volkswagon EOS with the top down and a TV sticking out of it. This in itself is's December in Colorado not Palm Springs. Anyhow upon reaching the entrance this same car is sort of parked in front, engine running, TV sticking out & @ CHILDREN IN THE BACK!!!! One an infant w/no shoes or socks on & the top down the other maybe 5 or 6 years old. Are you $@*^%*&#@^%&* kidding me, who does this ? Mr. Barefeet goes to see if anyone knows what is going on and I stay to check on the kids. Five minutes & several Best Buy employees & finally Daddy Douchebag comes out looking at me like I'm crazy when I ask if this is his car, Douchebag replies " Ya, why."
Really, did you just ask me why dickweed, your kids are in an open running car with no one watching them!!!!! To this he says he just donated $200,000 to charity....oh my bad that makes being an asshole okay then. As he gets in his car & I throw profanities at him & inform him that he is not a good dad and charity should begin at home, He says I'm a bitch (never heard that before) and I punch the car...things like this make me a bit crazy, what can I say.

The morale of this story is people suck, having money doesn't make you exempt from being a human & giving to charity doesn't make you good. Also, if you have $200,000 to donate to charity I doubt you drive a red convertible EOS, drag your kids to Bestbuy instead of leaving them with the nanny and brag about your're simply a douche!!!

Merry Christmas!!!
thanks for reading my rant :)

warm sunny wishes

When I grow up

Secretly I think Mr.Barefeet was sad that his son's first jersey wasn't that of his alma mater, University of Colorado Buffaloes or that of his family The Ohio State University, they have a brick at the stadium you know. But how can you argue with a little boy that wants to be like Tebow.

Hilary and her new shoes

This morning I took Hilary to get new shoes, expensive fabulous shoes ! Who's Hilary you ask...Hilary is my SUV, she is a Hummer and she is Fantastic. (now talk among yourselves and laugh at the irony Hilary,Hummer . Yes I'm referring to the Clinton scandal)

Before you judge too much, no I'm not a middle age balding man trying to compensate for a small penis by driving a Hummer and I'm not trying to ruin the environment...I recycle, I bring my bags to the grocery store, we use windsource for our electricity, and Hilary is American made! I might be a bit defensive but she's truly wonderful. From the moment I first saw her I felt as if Hilary was made just for me. Although people can barely see me over the steering wheel, I'm 5'2", Hilary and I are perfect for each other.

Back to Hilary's new shoes, they may not be Christian Louboutin's but they are BF Goodrich's in a beautiful matte black nubby rubber, they give her a bounce in her step, elongate her legs, and give her a new found confidence that we women understand...nothing feels as good as the perfect shoe. Tomorrow to complete Hilary's new look we head to the car wash I mean spa, body polish, mani/pedi & massage.

Look out for the shiny,more confident Hilary...she'll be unstoppable!!!

warm sunny wishes !!!

BA da BING...I'm in love

My new love.... ! I'm sure you have all seen the crazy commericals on TV for bing, the cure for search overload syndrome. But they offer so much more, and with the holidays right around the corner I thought I would share. Bing offers shopping with a cashback reward, FABULOUS !!! I recently discovered bing while searching for a coupon to use on a purchase. Bing has a cashback reward percentage at thousands of stores. The percentage varies from store to store with occasional special offers thrown in and sometimes free shipping. You get paid to shop for items you would be buying anyways and you can still use any store coupons you have on the order.

What's the catch you ask...the only one I found is you must wait 60 days for your reward to ensure there hasn't been any orders canceled or returned. Then bing will send you your reward via check,transfer or paypal. If you do encounter any problems I have had super service from the customer service agents, helpful, quick & best of nice!

Now to get started you simply go to sign up for cashback and MOST IMPORTANT shop through the bing site and I must say they have some amazing stores that we all use from low to high end, bing is a must and I'm in love!

Happy shopping !

warm sunny wishes !

Merry Halloween !!!

As I write this it is snowing outside, not just a bit but a full on dumper! About 16 inches so far, turning thoughts from halloween to Christmas. I'm glad I took some pictures of our halloween decor yesterday because today it's buried in snow.

I love halloween, always have. Since being married and having little barefeet, as with all holidays, it has more meaning and importance. It begins every year for us at the pumpkin festival picking an oversized wagon full of perfect pumpkins add some corn stocks and straw bales and you have what will become
the barefeet haunted pumpkin patch.

Little barefeet loves scary halloween decorations so as he has got older we are adding some more things that are gruesome, this year blood splatters and bloody hand prints. If he had his way we would leave the halloween store with all the animated scary movie characters we could fit in the SUV. We unpack the crates of decorations and supplies, lay it all out and spend the next day & a half decorating. Hope you have a safe and bootacular halloween, I must now start planning for Christmas!

pumpkins & pictures

Today was the annual pumpkin festival near our home.

It's always fantastic for pictures,crazy parents, and of course pumpkins. I could do a huge post on inappropriate behavior and attire.

However,I decided to just share some of our memories.

Yes, we have a lot of pumpkins...believe it or not this isn't all of them.

We(I) tend to enjoy decorating for holidays and events in general and will definitely have an upcoming post when the decorating is complete this week.

But for now we rest...picking the perfect pumpkins is exhausting!!

warm sunny wishes!

September 21st, the weather, my birthday & their cruel'll need a coat

Alrighty, it is September 21st, the last day of summer...HA not funny! Is this a joke, does someone get pleasure in making this day anything but summer, does the last day of summer say parka & Sorels to you ?
I know...or at least try to believe, that mother nature doesn't have it out for me but this is ridiculous. I grew up in California, warm sunny California & now live in Colorado,more than 300 days of sunshine a year. Sounds great right...But for some reason September 21st rain, snow, wind, cold. I need sun, warm golden sun, sitting out on the patio for every meal kind of weather. Not everyday but this day, It's my birthday and that's my wish. I have learned to love Colorado, the seasons & the snow ie: snowboarding but this September 21st thing is making me crazy. A huge majority of these dates have been spent in a parka...the exception September 21st, 2000 the birthday I met my hubby, Mr. barefeet.

So on this September 21st, another windy,cold, rainy with a chance of snow birthday I remember the birthday that I didn't wear a parka & say Happy Birthday to me !

mr.barefeet & lilbarefeet
warm sunny wishes!

testing testing...123

Here we go...who is going to go on this unscripted journey with me. This is what I can tell you it will be colorful, sometimes opinionated, but always honest & with humor, that's how we live...barefeet!
