More flowers.
Lilac and purple crocuses in my lawn. I think the Glory of the Snow decided not to show themselves this year or the squirrels found and ate all of the bulbs. I am quite bummed about the missing flowers. Unless of course the Midwest weather may continue to behave unpredictably and there could still be snow this April. If that were to happen, I would welcome the flowers. As of right now, I fear that they have missed their chance to make me smile.


I have gathered egg shells and slug bait for those slimy strawberry eaters. I will have lots of strawberries this year. I am very excited.
I am rubbing my hands together in anticipation of  
Operation No Slugs Mo' Berries.

This weekend, I drove around town trying to locate things. I had to leave my sorority program in order to greet the ATT Uverse installer. I also babysit for Trey.
FYI AT&T Uverse is amazing. There is a Barbie channel.
How can you not love that?

What I wanted to do more than anything else was to sit down with my new remote on my comfy couch while drinking some Throwback Pepsi.
I have several of my friends, on the search for the soda pop.
I have searched Rite Aid. I have braved various shop and robs for the refreshing drink. I have stopped at gas stations. I have been eyed suspiciously at discount stores as I walk in, walk around and walk out without purchasing anything. I checked Walmart. I checked grocers.
I can not find it.
Yesterday, I spotted the Pepsi guy at the grocery store.  I approached him cautiously.
"Excuse me, sir. "

" Yes"
"Have you delivered any Throwback Pepsi recently?"

I wanted to feel like that little kid again, drinking Pepsi with better flavor. I want my Pepsi Generation back.

Side note: It is not right seeing Alfonso dancing like MJ, he will forever be remembered for the Carlton dance.
Back to my story.

He stops stacking Pepsi products to motion towards a huge Pepsi display that is partially obstructed by a stand of Hawaiian Bread.
"There should be some at the display over there."
Excited, I head over to the display of cases of pop.
Standing in front of the casebook display, I slowly scan the various colors of Pepsi products designed in such a way as to promote the upcoming minor league baseball season. 
Go Mudhens!
I scanned it twice.
There was no Throwback Pepsi.
I run over to the pop aisle to question the Pepsi guy about other lcoations where he may have delivered Pepsi.
He was GONE
GONE
I believe that he had purposefully sent me on a wild goose chase.
I feel so used.


Someone should make an app for that....

I spent the other half of my weekend looking for silk violet sprays from which to make 18 violet corsages. That was a tall order. Violet sprays are pretty difficult to find. Where I did find enough to make 15 violets corsages, I could not complete the order with the same shade. I went all over town to all the locations of a chain craft store.  In the end several will be mixed with light purple flowers. I tried my best...
If I had had the correct Pepsi, I would have driven across the border.

LMAO. I remember Alfonso dancing like MJ. I also remember that commercial. Those were good times. I have not seen any throwback Pepsi's, but if I do, I will think of you and shoot you a note! Good luck on the hunt. Don't forget to post photos of your flowers.
