Numero uno... Random sayings in Espanish!
Random sayings in Spanish...so you may ask me "Mandi, do you speak Spanish" and I will promplty tell you no, but I do have on hand for few occasions a handful of Spanish phrases...For example. "No Bueno" which my friends means not good, I use this one quite frequently...like when a toothless tongan man stalks me at the singles dances, one of my friends will say "Mandi how do you feel about that?" to which I reply..."No Bueno" or "Mandi how was work this week" again the reply "No Bueno". You see it comes in VERY handy..
Numero Doux... Shoes
Are you kidding me...Shoes should probably be one of the first things I can't live with out,
Here are a few of my favorite looks right now to add to my collection of fabulous footwear:
I'm totally loving the converse right now, and these red Madden pumps are adorable, but I have 3 red pairs already, and forget about it, the brown Carlos are adorable as well. anyway...moving on
Brandi-ism...so this one needs a little background work. So I have this fantastic work friend named Brittani, You know Brittani #1 from an early post. Well the boys at work call us Brandi...the Br for Brittani and the Andi for Mandi. Brandisims merely refer to the collection of crazy quotes that frequent our office...here are a few of my personal favorites:
Mandi: "So I named the Xterra"
Britt #1: "Oh yeah, what?"
Mandi: "The Beast"
Britt: "oh, so it's a boy"
Mandi: "Yeah, but I'm going to make it girly, ya know, putting flower stickers on it and stuff"
Britt: "Oh, so it'll be hetero-sexual?"
Mandi: "you mean Metro-sexual, it's not GAY!"
Mandi: "You gotta hope that kid has a beard, cause when you hear Moses, you think guy with long white beard, and some tablets.."
Britt: "And an arc"
Jim (to Cheri): I'm using your name in vain alot
Britt: "So like 'oh my Cheri' or "What the Cheri?'..."
My neices and nephews...they are freiken sweet! take a look and see if you could live without them...I highly doubt it:
The Kidletts: L-R Kylee (7), Colt (ster 10mos), Ryann (4) Jaylee (bug 3mos), Ellie (4) and Kodee (lishous 2)
AND Finally Number 5: solitaire
Yep I said it, solitare. I can't live without it. One of the first things I do in the morning is play a game, draw three Vegas style...ahhhhhh...if I can win one Vegas style all of my wildest dreams will come ...well lets just say it makes it a little easier to make it through the day. I was up one night and started playing a game back to back to back, and won like 6 in a row, had I truely been gambling I'd have one like a thousand bucks...seriously it was amazing, next time I will post pictures, but I doubt I have a game in me that amazing...but we'll see.
Well, I'm out of things to say...More to come!!!

L to R...Me, Chet and My dad
Turns out I shot the biggest "first" buck in the family...everyone else shot spikes or two points...He's 24 inch tall and 23 inches wide...4 point...The funny thing about it was the next day Sam shot this 29ish inch buck the very next day...talk about stealing my thunder..lol...
L-R My mom, Dad, Sam I am and her buck, Me my buck and the best guide ever Chet..
So as you can see, my buck looks puny compared to Sam's but I have to say it was the GREATEST hunt of my entire life...I loved every minute of it.
Now a word about Chet...he uh REALLy should've been born first, he has the personality for it, strait arrow, always did everything well...and me I was kinda the rebel slacker...so when he came to my family shortly after me...(like just over a year or so...18ish months maybe)...we there were fireworks...and it wasn't pretty...but 2 missions later...and lost of bonding through letters, and Chet well he's one of my best friends...and he's such a good example for me...he's got a fabulous wife Annie, who the next year shot the biggest buck in the family...and 3 of the most amazing kids on the planet. He's a great dad, and even better big brother...He's my favorite older younger brother...Love ya Chet!!!
So that's my post for the week...More adventure to come...I think I'll blog about solitare the next go around...it's my addiction...lol...and well I'm back on nights...so I don't know when then next installment will be...Later friends...
