my niece would always say "happy noodles" instead of "happy new year" when she was little. it stuck. i like it.


i love new years! i love new years eve! i think it's so fun! so exciting! i love being in different places for new years, although i haven't done shit the past few. so this year, we've decided to have an impromptu party! on such last minute notice, only a few couples are coming over- but it's way better than nothing! we went out and got a ton of snack foods, and drinks and i can't wait!

good god. .you hear me?!?! GOOD.GOD.

i have never cried so hard and so often in a movie, as i did in this one. and honestly, it wasn't even that great of a movie. but dammit. i was, and still am, bawling. i cannot stop crying. it was just so sad.

my only complaint about this movie was that we didn't get to know really anything about the people who died before they died. the movie starts off with the end of the game before they board the plane that crashes. we get about 5 minutes of the team and coaches before we lose them all forever. boyfriend insists that i enjoy torturing myself and he doesn't understand how i could want to be more involved in a story that is already as heartwrenching as it is. but i guess the way i see it is- this movie was made because of this huge loss. and while it is about moving on after an incredible tragedy.... and how not only individuals must move past this, but a whole entire town.... i guess i just want to know WHO they're moving on from. i want to be more emotionally involved. i want to care about the people who died. and i can't care about them when i'm not given anything at all to know about them. and i think that sucks. i want to know the girl and her fiance's relationship before he dies. i want to know what kind of coach the coach was. i want to know and like these boys before they are killed.

maybe boyfriend's right? no, he's not. it's not that i enjoy torturing myself. it's just that i enjoy learning all about someone when i'm supposed to care that they're gone. know what i mean? you want me to care that this town lost 75 people? show me 75 people to care about. teach me about them. let me love them too. and then yeah...... i'll be crying even harder. but dammit, i might feel better too. i know that doesn't make any sense, but it does in my head.

snowboarding superstar!

yes everyone, i'm still sick. it's pathetic. i feel terrible.

we went snowboarding over christmas. it was blake's first time. my mom tried it too! but soon after attempting and falling too many times, she took a snowmobile down the mountain. her boyfriend traded in the snowboard for ski's and then went ski crazy like a superstar! but how fun is it that they tried to snowboard?!?! super fun, i think.

blake was so over his lessons. all he wanted to do was GO GO GO! when the instructor asked the kids if they wanted to stop and look at animal tracks, they all yelled, "NOOOO!!!" he made them stop anyway. once his lessons were over he asked me, "can i do what you guys were doing and just go down the mountain without stopping???" so he did. apparently he can't turn or stop very well, but he sure points that board down the mountain and takes off like a bat outta hell. i think it's funny. he's such a cool kid. my sister has all the pictures, so i can't show you any. (hint hint sis)

i realize this post sucks, but i'm sick. and i have no voice. so i shouldn't be typing. HAH

don't have much to say

except that i still feel icky. and those damn 3 climbers in the oregon mountains have made me very, very sad.

why do people have to go and die around christmas? it makes me feel so bad because now, for those families, christmas will never be the same again. no longer will christmas be filled with good thoughts and love and all things positive and happy. it will be forever intertwined with the trip the dad's never came back from. makes me sad. so, so, sad.

seriously. do i smell? do i suck at writing lately? has my life become.. dare i say it.. BORING?!?!

because where the hell is everyone? you sure as shit aren't reading this blog. and that's fine. no really. don't mind me. i'll just post to myself because well, if i don't have anyone to talk too, i'll just talk to myself. kind of like this past weekend, at my xmas party, boyfriend kept disappearing on me- so i would introduce my hand to people as boyfriend. "this is my boyfriend, chris. oh, he says it's really nice to meet you. oh yeah, he really likes your top too!" and my hand would move up and down. it was great.

it was 28 fucking degrees this morning. my car was covered in ice. ice i couldn't get off. ice people. THIS STER OF JENN IS NOT MADE FOR ICE OR WEATHER THIS DAMN CHILLY. DO YOU HEAR ME? oh yeah, you don't.. because you aren't reading this blog!

okay, reassurance time. please tell me no one is reading your blog either and it's just the time of year. if it's not true, lie to me. thanks!

wait, milf is a bad thing?!?

how come i'm always the last to know?!? none of you ever tell me anything! i didn't even know this was going around blogland and people were upset at being called a milf (or the hot moms club). kristen made a great post here talking about her perspective on the issue. issue? why is being a milf an issue?!

good gravy people- who doesn't want to feel good about themselves? for me, when someone calls me a milf, i laugh. i laugh because it's funny and well, i don't really believe them. but carrying on... why is being hot, or sexy, or feeling good, a bad thing? i take being a mom completely out of the picture because how come it's okay to be hot when you're not a mom? but once you're a mom, you can't be? or is it because the hot mom's club are called just that? hot.moms. and that offends people?

let me tell you something- i'm not as thin as i'd like to be and there are certainly things i'd like to change about how i look physically, but i still think i'm cute! and i think my fabulous personality adds to my cuteness. :) am i hot? eh.. i don't think so, but i sure as shit joined that hot mom's club. why? because i think it's fun! i think some of the women on there are FAR too skinny and i would personally never want to be that thin, but who doesn't want to feel sexy?

i just don't think it's wrong. i don't think being called or considering yourself a milf is something that is setting back feminism billions of years. who cares?!? wouldn't you think that as women- feeling good, feeling sexy, feeling do-able, would be a positive part of feminism? why is being hot, bad?

ah hell, i don't know. but what i do know is, i'm never offended when someone calls me a milf. are you?

when you're famous

and you're in the public eye, would you think about your actions? how would you handle being an actress and being married to a professional baseball player? do you think it would change you? would you live your life differently if you knew that kids were looking up to you and watching your every move?

so many questions, and so many answers.

tonight on blogtalkradio, i'll be talking with ashley drane. she's an actress from los angeles who has been in such shows as drake & josh, that's so raven, and the wb's, blue collar tv. she's also married to david eckstein (major league baseball player for the st. louis cardinals). in today's society where it seems that young actresses don't even think twice about the roles they are offered, ashley stands out above the rest.

i'll be talking to her about the pressures of being a role model. about turning down parts to stay true to your ideals.

don't forget to call in, because ashley would love to take your calls and answer your questions!

** don't forget to call in and talk to ashley!**
talk to you tonight at 8pm PST! please call (646) 915-8654 to be part of our show, or live comment in this blog post!!

i need your help blogland!

invitations. the wedding ones. i'm struggling here. don't you think that a quote of $6oo dollars for 100 invitations is a little steep? cause i sure do. here is my question:

to pay someone that money, i'll have total say over how the invitations are designed. the color scheme, the monogram, all of it. total control. AND, they'll look freaking amazing. but does it really matter how amazing they look, when all they do is end up in people's trash cans?

my problem is that i look at things and think "i can do that." and i can. i mean, i know i could design my own monogram.. incorporate it into the tent cards, the table numbers, etc. i could do all of that. but at what expense? it would be financially cheaper, but that's a hell of a lot of work and a hell of a lot of time. and i don't know if i want to do all of that. not to mention the fact that while i could do all of those things, a professional graphic designer could do them better.

did you make anything yourself when it came to your wedding? are you totally sick and tired of hearing about this crap already?!?!

Monday, December 11, 2006


first of all, thank you all SO incredibly much for the comments in the post below. you're all so freaking awesome and you get so damn personal in my comments, and i love you for it.

i want y'all to know that i don't hate my dad. i'm sorry if i gave that impression in the post. i was angry for a long time. so mad at what he did and how he did it, but sometimes more than that- how it hurt my mom. i couldn't even deal with my own emotions in regards to what happened when i was so wrapped up in helping my mom deal with hers. the pain in which this has caused her, is heartbreaking. i can't even put into words how much her pain hurts me.

but i have come to realize that while their relationship is over, my relationship with my father, is not. it's not about taking sides. i'll never agree that he did a good thing. i'll never think that how he did what he did was okay. because it wasn't. but it's done now. he's done it. and he did it the way he did, and he can't take it back. sometimes, you just have to accept things and move past them. because they can't be changed. life is just hard sometimes. full of lessons to be learned. and this is one of them. i don't want to shut my dad out of my life. he knows i was mad at him. he knows i don't agree with what he did. he knows because i've told him. but he also knows that i love him. because i can't just stop loving the only father i've ever known. and it's not like he was a bad father to me. you know? so i can't just suddenly hate someone that i've loved my whole life. plus, i don't want to hate him. i don't want to hate anyone. life is too short for that. and i don't want to have regrets. so while it is still hard to talk to him about certain things in regards to his life..... at least we're talking.

and so many of you who have been through this before know what it feels like to feel like you're in the middle. if i'm talking to my dad, that upsets my mom. and even though she knows logically that i have every "right" to have a relationship with my father, it still hurts her because subconsciously she wants me to still be mad at him. i understand all of that. i understand the feelings of someone doing something so wrong to you, that you want everyone else to be mad at that person for as long as you are. i get it. but in choosing to have a relationship with my dad, it doesn't mean that i'm choosing to not support my mom. it doesn't mean that i agree with what he did. it doesn't mean that i think it's okay. i think it sucks, and i will always think that. i never want to deal with that in my own personal relationship and future marriage. i never want to know that kind of pain. i never want to feel that helplessness, that betrayal. i don't want to inflict any more pain on my mom. she doesn't need it. but i also can't take any more pain. so i want it to be okay that i talk to him. and i think with time, it will be.

i freaked out in regards to everything at my wedding because i have literally seen my dad 1 time since all of this has happened. it's emotional enough to think about the wedding and all that that day represents without thinking about adding the dad factor into things. i feel like i need to talk and see him more, otherwise that day will be an overload of all sorts of emotions. the last thing i want is some fucked up breakdown that day. and for the record, my dad and i were very, very close- so that is what makes this even more difficult. he went from the main man in my life that i could count on and call for anything, to the one person i didn't want to call for anything. that was my decision though at the time. and at the time, i agreed with it. but now that almost 3 years have passed- i'm not in the same place.

so many thoughts. so many emotions. only 1 head. it's a work in progress like i said before. and i think that's a good thing.

ps- boyfriend bought his wedding ring this weekend! if that's not enough to turn you on, i don't know what is! it's so freaking hot, i love it! tungsten ring in gunmetal grey. how freaking boyfriend is that?!?!

my heart, it hurts

i don't talk about all of this stuff much because sometimes, when i feel it creeping into my head, i push it out so fast that i forget it was even there in the first place. but i can only ignore it for so long, because i have to deal with it. and i'm not normally the person who doesn't confront things. i take my emotion... i live with it.. i live in it.. i accept it.. i fight it.. i do whatever.. but at least i acknowledge it. and with this, well i haven't done a lot of those things.

ever since my dad cheated on my mom a few years ago and left, his and my relationship has been barely existant. i went over a year without talking to him. and even though he deserved every bit of it, it hurt me. what he did to my mom, and the way in which he hurt her, is something i'll never forget. and i shouldn't be expected too. but i can only hold onto anger for so long before it starts to tear away at who i am. i'm not the type to hold a grudge. i'm the type of person who has deals with her emotions and works through them. otherwise, i can't function.

my dad and i have talked more in the last year or so and while it's not the way it used to be, it's better than it was. i would classify our relationship as a definite work in progress. while i hate what he did, and the way that he did it- nothing changes the fact that he is my dad and he's the only dad i've ever known. and so my heart, it hurts. my head, it hurts. because there is so much hurt and pain surrounding his actions that it's almost to hard to breathe sometimes.

and my wedding. good god, this wedding. things i never thought i'd have to think about before, i suddenly have to think about. i always figured my dad would walk me down the aisle. and now, that's just not something i can have him do. yes, he's my dad, but i don't want someone to walk me down the aisle and "give me away" when they haven't really been in my life for the last 3 years- and not to mention the whole cheating thing. i hate cheating so much. everything about it is so awful. the lies, the dishonesty, the conniving, the running around with another person.. ugh.. everything. i just hate it. and i just want purity, honesty, trust and everything good to surround me on my wedding day. that's why blake is walking me down the aisle and "sharing" me instead of giving me away. and then there's the fucking seating chart. i mean, i never had to think about where i'd sit my dad before. and now, i'm in tears trying to figure out who to put him with that won't want to stab his eyes out with hot pokers. and the father/daughter dance. and how he'll feel at my wedding. and how my mom will feel. and how they'll be seeing eachother for the first time in years that day. and how i don't want to think about either of them and i only want to think about myself and boyfriend and blake. but ALL OF THIS AFFECTS ME. and i hate it all. because it's just so painful and it's just so hard. and it's my fucking wedding day, and i shouldn't have to even think about things like this.

and i know that my dad made his bed and how everyone treats him is a result of his actions.. i know all of this. i know that he has to take responsibility for what he did. he has to accept that his actions have consequences. BUT THEY AFFECT ME TOO. if he's at my wedding miserable because people who were once his friends will no longer associate with him, that will affect me. because even though what he did was wrong, if he is hurting and around me, it will hurt me. and if my mom is hurting, that will hurt me. and i don't know what to do. and i just hate all of this. and i'm tired.

i boyfriend, take thee jennster & the dyson..

i put a dyson on our gift registry. yes, i have no shame. but what if we get it? and what if we get it BEFORE the wedding? someone asked me that and out came this response:

"well... i'll haul the damn thing up to tahoe and walk it down the aisle with me. that dyson will be an instant bridesmaid! i can find a pretty dress to put on it! think i'm joking?"

that's not crazy, right? i mean, that's just love.

i just don't understand

**issa, little miss "i'm not drinking coffee anymore and if anyone in this universe blogs about coffee or starbucks, i will hunt them down and murder them in their sleep!!!" you might wanna skip this post. thanks**

how the one, single think i like at suckbuck's, can be so apparently damn difficult to make. everytime i order my chai tea latte, it's like a freaking crapshoot. i feel like i'm taking a risk with every order.

is it going to be good? too watered down? barely hot? no foam? too much chai flavoring? not enough chai flavoring?

i ask for the same thing everytime. venti chai tea latte, extra hot and extra foam. (omg, i've turned into one of those people who add shit to their shit. i can't believe i even say the word "venti" out loud. i'm such a sellout.) carrying on...

suckbucks- when i give you the honor of gracing your preppie establishment with my presence (not to mention hard earned money), please do me the honor of making my order correctly. it can't be that fucking hard. and when i ask for extra foam, that does not mean i don't want any. that means be generous with the stupid foamy stuff at the top of my cup. i like it when the tea has to work hard to get through the foam to come out of the cup. yes, i'm a freak.. but i'm a freak who gives you money to make me tea. please make it right. or i'll stop coming here. and actually, that might not be a bad idea. my wallet might thank me. i can't believe i pay y'all as much money as i do to make me this drink. maybe we should register for something that lets me make my own chai tea latte's at home! oooh, foam galore!!!

here is last night's radio show. just click the play button to listen to me and izzy talking to everyone about their significant others! "this one time.. at band camp..."

things i've learned about blog talk radio

it's super fun and i really like it.. but i need to start the show about an hour later. that means i need to do the show at 8pm PST. i realize that makes it late for some of you east coasters, but it's either your sleep time, or my sanity. i win!

i get home from work close to 7 and it's just too much to literally walk in the door, say hi to my boys and then run upstairs and start my show. boyfriend understands, but blake doesn't. and it's not fair to him. it's not fair to either of them. so no more 7pm starts. i can't handle it.

i'm also going to rethink how often i do the shows, but for now- i'll keep them weekly. i'll see how changing the time i start feels. we'll roll with it.

i had lots more to say, but now i can't remember! tonight's show was really fun though! izzy did great, per usual. (thank you izzy) and everyone who live commented in the thread below- THANK YOU! even if you can't call in, the comments are fun and crack me up!

you can listen to the show here- and any of the past ones as well!

how'd you meet your significant other?

that's the topic for tonight's radio show! izzymom will be co-hosting with me!!! so don't forget to dial in, or just listen.. or heck, live comment like rwa always does (it makes me laugh the most). and if you don't have a significant other, then what are you doing to try and find one? let's talk love tonight people. and let's talk it gooooood.

7pm PST tonight!!
the number to reach izzy & myself is: (646) 915-8654
my blog talk radio page
speaking of love, i have to tell you how much i love and adore boyfriend. blake had a little thing at school this morning recognizing his awesomeness in regards to teamwork in and out of the classroom. it's a small assembly where 1 kid from each class gets recognized. i wouldn't have even gone, but blake specifically asked me to. and when he asked boyfriend, boyfriend said he had a deadline at work and couldn't make it. so i'm standing there in the auditorium and i feel a little ping in my stomach. i turn for no reason and look to my left and there's boyfriend walking in with our friend kathleen! i got so giddy and excited to see him there. first of all, i never get to see boyfriend at that time of day, and second of all, how cool was it of him to show up for that?!?! see, this is why i'm marrying this man!!!

don't forget to call tonight and get mushy with me live!!!! :)

the ster house is christmafied!!

the decorations are up!!!! i'm so excited because our little place looks so stinking cute, i could eat it up! you know, and gain more weight. do you think it would look bad if my wedding dress was safety pinned in the back to close it? haha

i guess this post means nothing really without pictures. and well, i didn't take any. but i will. and then i'll post them. because music box row is so cute this year! blake decorated it and he did such a fabulous job! and then boyfriend.. oh my goodness, don't even get me started on how freaking fabulous he was yesterday. we have a fake tree. but it's so cute and fun and you only know it's fake because it doesn't smell yummy. he spent HOURS (literally) making the branches look like a real freaking tree. i made them look like a firecracker blew them up. you see, i just wanted to fill up the holes and spaces- so i made each branch thing go a direction that filled up holes. so the branches were just all over the place. but hey, no holes! boyfriend would get to my piece of crap branch, sigh, and then fix it appropriately. only after he'd spent over 2 hours on the damn thing, did i finally realize and see just what it was he was doing. he was making it damn near perfect. he's such a hot piece of ass!

we didn't put up the train this year or the department 56 stuff because in all honesty, we just don't have the space. and i thought we would have a particular piece of furniture by now that i could turn into dept 56 haven, but we don't have it. and i don't want the 1 room we spend all of our time in to be so damn full of christmas goodness that you can't even walk! i'm fully against my house looking like santa barfed in it.

ooh, speaking of xmas goodies and barfing, i did some baking this weekend! my very first gingerbread men (from a box) were delicious! and i made the 5 minute fudge that i posted here awhile back. all is yummy! all is fattening! all is well!! :) merry christmas. ha!

where have all the good role models gone?

i certainly don't know, but i can tell you this... i found 2 yesterday.

as any parent knows- good role models for our kids are scarce these days. you can find an amazing athlete for your child to look up to, but how do they behave off the court? or off the field? kobe bryant is a great example. there was a guy that no one had anything bad to say about on or off the court. and then we all know what happened. in that instant, he became someone in my eyes, that i didn't want blake to look up to anymore. but how do you go about explaining to your child that someone he thought was awesome, sucks in real life?
"yes blake, kobe is an amazing basketball player. but you know what, it's not enough. he has to be amazing off the court too. and he's not. he's not a very nice person off the court."
and in my opinion, you need to be both. you need to be just as amazing off the field as you are on it. because it's not enough to just be a good athlete. you also need to be a good person. and i think it's rare to find both in someone. which is sad, but true.

and then i don't even know where to begin when it comes to the role models for girls in our society. in this day and age where the singers our girls love dress like whores (and act like them) it's so hard to find someone good and nice for them to want to be like. where the actresses are daily tabloid news for their awful behavior, and the toys our girls are supposed to want to play with (bratz dolls anyone?) are wearing next to nothing- what do we have left to give our girls?!?

i don't have the answer. i don't have the solution. i do believe that our kids look up to us, their parents, most of all. i do believe that good behavior begins at home. i do believe that the most influential role models are those of us who are around them the most. i try to be someone that blake can look up to and respect. and as of yesterday, i found 2 more people i'd be thrilled for him to feel that way about.

i spent a large part of my day yesterday with david eckstein and ashley drane. david is a major league baseball player. he is currently on the st. louis cardinals and was the MVP of the 2006 world series. ashley is an actress who has been on shows like drake & josh, phil of the future, that's so raven, and blue collar tv. these are 2 people who are immersed in a world where they could completely lose themselves. they could be those stars that end up on the front page of the tabloids with embarassing pictures, or have stories printed about how awful and rude they are. but, they're not. and you want to know why? because it's not in either of their character to be that way. take their jobs out of the picture completely, and what you have are 2 people who are so genuinely kind and good, it's almost unreal. i believe that if either of them had different careers, nothing about their personalities, or their character, would be any different. you would never know that david was the superstar baseball player that he is. he is so humble and modest. and he's just NICE. there is no ego that follows him around. he doesn't act as if the world owes him what he's getting. if anything, he'd like to give back. i honestly don't know how to put into words how down to earth and cool he was... i mean, the only way i can think of it is, he's someone you'd want to be friends with. they're both someone you'd want to be friends with. ashley is a stand up woman. she is so good hearted, thoughtful and kind. it was truly a joy to spend time with her. i learned from ashley that you can be who you want to be, without sacrificing who you are. you can follow and achieve your dreams without giving up your ideals. the many conversations we had yesterday were priceless. all i can say, and i can't say it enough, is how truly wonderful these 2 people are inside and out. they have good values, cherish their families, and i believe they know what really matters in life.

i'm telling all of you this, because i know as parents, we struggle with finding good role models for our kids. and even though i don't have a daughter, a lot of you do. and maybe you don't know who ashley is, but it's worth it in my opinion for you to find out. if i had a daughter, i'd pay her to adore ashley. and i would definitely buy blake anything david eckstein he wants.

you know what though? these aren't just people for our kids to look up to. these are people that we could all learn something from. humility, humbleness, kindness, being genuine, strength of self and character.... all qualities they both have. in abundance. because it's not only important for our kids to learn these things, some of us could re-learn them as well.

friday goodies!

after all my bitching about my fat ass and thighs yesterday... i baked rice krispie treats and brownies last night. see? me = mental.

i'm having lunch with david eckstein (2006 world series MVP) and his wife ashley today and i'm super excited!!!! anything you want me to tell david "superstar" eckstein or his adorable wife? no, i can't make out with either of them for you, so don't even ask.

i'm decorating the house for christmas tomorrow and i can't wait! i love putting it all up, but i get so sick of it by the time christmas finally comes around, that i can't wait to take it all down. i hate knowing i have all this work to do that's just lingering and i swear, all of it is down the day after christmas. what the hell is the point of keeping it up past xmas anyway? christmas is OVER by then. decorations = dead to me.

still obsessed with all things wedding and designing monograms. although someone designed a really killer monogram that was far cooler than anything i could have ever designed and i love it! even boyfriend likes it, which makes it that much more fun!

and one last note about the radio shows i've been doing. many of you are bummed out when you miss the show and you tend to think that you can't hear it if you miss it live. but that's not true at all. all you have to do is click here- and go to the archives. all the shows i've done in the past will show up there, and you can listen to any of them! what are you waiting for.. go listen now! what do you mean you have a life that doesn't revolve around me? fine, listen to them whenever you want! *winks*
