Happy 8th Birthday BuffaloMommies!
On this special day we want to say thank you to our members, Leadership Team & staff, past and present, for helping guide us to where we are today.  Without all of you, there would be no BuffaloMommies! We look forward to celebrating on Friday the 13th at our bowling birthday party. For those of you who didn't sign up, we hope you'll have something sweet in honor of our special day.

For those who don't know: BuffaloMommies was founded on March 4th 2007, by Helene Perez after moving to the Buffalo area. In her old hometown, she had been a part of a sister community, HudsonValleyMommies, and missed the support and friendship she had found now that she was in a new city. BuffaloMommies gives moms in and around Western New York the opportunity to meet one another, form lasting friendships and support one another on the road of motherhood.

Friday Funny: 13 Ways My Life Would be Different If It Were a Soap Opera
I don't have time to watch soaps but I've always been a General Hospital fan. My college roommate and suitemate turned me onto the show back when Stone was alive and he and Robin were an item. Before that, when I was in high-school I watched Another World (no longer on). And way, way, back, I'll admit to watching Santa Barbara (also no longer in existence). Although it is fun to get wrapped up in the story lines and drama, when you stop to think about it, some of the plot and characters can be so ridiculous. I came up with a list, of 13 Ways My Life Would be Different If It Were a Soap Opera: (cue the theme music)

1. I would be on my third marriage. My first husband would be dead from a tragic accident like careening over a cliff in a car with sabotaged brakes and my second and I would be divorced and fighting over rental property on "the docks".

2. My children would have longer, fancier, names like Jamison Matthew Beauford something or other the III.

3. I would live at "The Mansion".

4. I would have a wacky cook/maid/butler named Sabrina.

5. My wardrobe would be comprised of over-sized, tacky, jewelry and many, flowing, dresses that I'd wear just around the house.

6. If I wanted to go anywhere, I'd ask Sabrina to tell my driver to pull the Bentley around.

7. In my living room, there'd always be a tray that had glasses and a full pitcher of water or orange juice.

8. Whenever I ate out at a restaurant there'd be a huge scene as I got into a fight with one of my husband's ex-wives, or my ex-husband. Inevitably someone would have a drink thrown in their face and I'd have to be dragged out.

9. I'd have several long, lost siblings & half siblings who suddenly come forward. Offspring of affairs my mother and father each had "years ago" & pregnancies that no one knew about.

10. My kids would stay babies forever, whisked away and cared for by our nanny, and then one day appear grown up and 10.

11. I would have experienced and overcome many tragic events like being trapped in the basement of a burning house, stuck in an elevator with my arch enemy after a building explosion, a terrible car crash that left me in a coma for weeks, and a near drowning while trying to save my ex-husband's sister because I am a good person even though he doesn't think so. But I survive!

12. I would wake up in the morning everyday with perfect make-up & hair. And never have morning breath either.

13. Every time my husband and I made love (in front of a fireplace) there would be a hundred candles lit everywhere and rose petals all over our floor and bed.

What am I missing? How would your life be different if you lived in a soap opera?

What Color Are You?
Who else is a sucker for these random internet quizzes that are supposed to tell you what you are like? I'm always amazed when they are dead on correct-and when are wrong, of course, it's some internet quiz some random person made up! I love taking them though. 

I took this quiz back in 2008 and surprisingly, my results are exactly the same as when I took it back then. What color are you?

you are steelblue

Your dominant hues are cyan and blue. You like people and enjoy making friends. You're conservative and like to make sure things make sense before you step into them, especially in relationships. You are curious but respected for your opinions by people who you sometimes wouldn't even suspect.

Your saturation level is medium - You're not the most decisive go-getter, but you can get a job done when it's required of you. You probably don't think the world can change for you and don't want to spend too much effort trying to force it.

Your outlook on life is brighter than most people's. You like the idea of influencing things for the better and find hope in situations where others might give up. You're not exactly a bouncy sunshine but things in your world generally look up.
