And Now...

What a week!  So much to talk about so let's jump right in!

#1- Did you hear? Diddy gave his 16 year old son a $360,000 Maybach for a birthday present. (If you don't know what a Maybach is, well, it means "really super badass" in car-speak) Now, I could look at this one of two ways... I'm jealous and that's why getting my bitch on, or I'm mortified considering he could have helped to teach a lesson in humanity by donating that chunk-o-change to Haiti in his son's name. It seems odd to me that Haiti has a zillion orphaned children and Doo-Doo is gifting a $360,000 car to his child. Check out the story here.

#2- Did you hear? Obama is trying to get his swagger back.  I thought the State of the Union address was good and yadda yadda yadda...but my favorite part of the night was once again Michelle Obama. Seriously people, I am in awe of this lady.  She has such innate poise, such gracefulness and such inner confidence she makes me blush.  I would give anything to be able to call her and ask her for advice when dealing with my own child. If you ask me, B. Obama should be thanking his lucky stars she married him. Check out her perfect outfit here.

#3- Did you hear? Of course you did! The whole world is talking about the iPad! Jokes about the iRag, the iTampon and the iThingWithWings are running rampant all over the internet. I know however, we are going to end up getting one. We are a Mac family who has had every iPod and iMac. We have Apple TV and iPhones. To not getting one would be denying my husband in the worst way and I'm never willing to do that! However, if I were to talk to Steve Jobs personally, I would like to ask him if he could come up with the iPresident and iCongress so we could stop talking and start passing something that looks like health care. Check out the iPad here.

#4- Did you hear? At this time next week zillions of people will be caught up once again in the frenzy caused by the show Lost. I must admit I am a Lost die-hard and can't wait to see how they mess with us this season. I don't even remember a series besides The Sopranos that kept me so completely obsessed with it for 5+ years! For a fun article about the show, click here!

#5- Did you hear? I like to end on high notes. This past week I started my first blog contest. And it's still going on so it is NOT TOO LATE to enter.  All you have to do is subscribe to S'mores, Follow S'mores and Tweet about S'mores. SOOO EASY!  Next Friday I will announce a winner and award them a $100 Starbucks gift card.  Seriously people, I'm talking $100 worth of a healthy morning buzz. And, it is so easy to get extra entries. All you have to do is leave a comment below or tweet S'mores!

Again, thanks for visiting me this past week. I have a lot of fun writing and I love hearing what you have to say!

Have a great weekend!


  1. I love your sense of humor! :) Have a great weekend.

  2. You always make me smile and I don't think I've said it yet but I'm gladf you're back :)I know what a crazy birthday party! I'm jealous too.

  3. Michelle Obama is great... Ipad and Lost not so much

  4. I'm thinking of stopping my subscription to the newspaper as long as I am assured that I have smores to read when I wake up!! I love your blog and I'm sooo glad you're back!! Your week is review is mhy favorite (except for anything relating to Oliver)...information about all of the news that I missed and couldn't live without!!

  5. couldn't agree w/you more... michelle is graceful as.
    and p-whatever-he-goes-by-now.. he, on the otherhand needs a lesson in parenting. wtf? $360K car? if he didn't feel the urge to give a donation to haiti, the least he coulda done was put it in an eduction fund for his son (and a few others!) damn, the child can now get a job legally. put him to work and EARN a car so he appreciates the value of all that he has been blessed. i'd say i'm disappointed, but hmmm, i'm not really surprised w/the boy. (can't call him a man)
    thanks for keeping me up to date on all the latest!!! if it weren't for you i'd be so outta the loop (=

  6. well, i'm not really an anderson cooper but these are the stories I find interesting! Doc- you're not into lost? get into it! it's never too late!
    Dana- xoxo, janet- you rock! Sherrie and Kat- Thanks for stopping by, I love hearing from you both!

  7. Rock on Mama Smores! Love the week in review.

  8. I LMAO at the "get my bitch on" totally stealing that one! I will say kuddos to P Diddy's kid who donated the $ to Haiti, but seriously he can't even drive yet?!
