The passing of icons!

You guys rock!

Thank you so much for all your grocery advice! It's definitely going to help my budget! I'll keep you posted on that and how it goes :)

And if you see me on the street, give a girl some food, would ya??? TOTALLY just kidding, but when I ask, you all sure do deliver!

Yesterday was such a sad day in the celebrity world! Michael Jackson was a very lost and very unique person in his own right and I'll never quite understand the life he led. But man, the world lost a legend yesterday! I will always love Thriller. I think he started becoming really big when I was born in the 80's and I really wish as I would have gotten older that I would have taken the time to appreciate his music more. It will definitely live on for years to come!

Back in 2005 I went out to California to visit a friend and it was during the time Michael was on trial for the charges brought against him. I was able to drive by the courthouse where his trial was taking place and there were so many people bombarding the courthouse and tons of reporters and what not. I was able to get pictures. Although I hate what he was being charged for but looking back, it's neat to be able to say I experienced that.

From what I've heard, this is kind of like when Elvis passed away!

I was also sad because with Michael's death it kind of put Farrah Fawcett's passing on the back burner and just hope she gets the recognition that she deserves. She fought a couragious fight and she was such an inspiration as to how she handled her cancer and in the midst continued to remain just as beautiful as she was back in the days of Charlie's Angels!

When you hear of the death of a celebrity it's bizarre the way it hits you and you feel like you just lost a friend. But indeed, Farrah and Michael couldn't be in a more better place, wouldn't you agree? Will continue to keep these families in my prayers in the days to come!

And then there's Ed McMahon... I use to watch Star Search religiously when I was younger. Always wishing I could be on the show and loved guessing how many stars people were going to get, ha! Did any of you watch that show??

This leads me to rememember the Full House episode where Joey was on Star Search. Do you remember that one?

I twitter and follow alot of celebrities, I know... like I don't get enough of them in the news and media, I have to stalk them and follow them, haha! Are you a stalker like me and follow celebrities?? haha!

Who is ready for the weekend??

I AM!!

Friday, hurry it up would you? I have wedding festivities to tend to, haha! I can't wait to share pictures with ya'll. It's going to be such a fun time celebrating this weekend with Monica during this special time in her life. I was so honored when she asked me to be in her wedding. It seems like she was just telling me she got engaged!

Time sure does fly, doesn't it?

Its amazing to me how much we relate to these amazing entertainers that we've never met. Michael Jackson, Farrah and Ed, were all people I grew up with - watch how many stars a girl my age got, learning how to moonwalk and dance and how to style my hair!

We are the world.........s

I sure hope they're in a better place! Do you know if they were believers in Jesus?

Yeah, the whole death comes in 3's too! Ed, Farrah, Michael! Sad stuff. Michael was weird and had some issues but no one can deny his iconic status, songs, and dance moves.

Have a great weekend!
