I Am Tickled!

Image
I am tickled!  Tickled pink that is!  When Holly of 504 Main asked me if I would like to be featured on her blog, I won't lie...I did the happy dance.  If she were in my presence I would have hugged her.  I am truly excited to be included in her featured bloggers.  I am still so young in my blogginess.  If you haven't been to Holly's site, please click on this cute pink button to go and see her.  She has other bloggers featured besides me, plus a blog hop.  She has fabulous crafty ideas and projects she shares and gives instructions.  And she always features wonderful bloggers, who craft, garden, create, and all things fantastic, so why would she choose me?? LOL...



If you don't know me, I am a CA girl born and bred.  My husband was in the military for 20 years and we moved around a lot.  The farthest we lived away from here was VA.  After his retirement in 07 we made our way back west.  We have three beautiful children who drive me crazy as children should, but I love …

Road Rage Rant

Image
I have Road Rage.  Luckily for those idiot bad other--drivers--which--are--not--us-- of course--I do not really carry a gun.  And it is also lucky for them that I am mostly "no action, talk only."  Today I will use the written word for my rant on road rage.  Because after all, the pen is mightier than the sword.  Or in this case, the keys are mightier than the car?   Raise your hand if you have school age kids.  Raise your hand if you drive them to school.  Raise your hand if you think ninety percent of the parents are idiots careless drivers.  How do these people get their license anyway???  Let me set the scene for you.  
The school parking lot is small.  It was not meant for the capacity of students the school has.  It has a little over 500 kids.  Which is small compared to their school in VA which had 1100 kids.  I digress School CA has a small parking lot, with one way in and one way out.  It has two lanes of "traffic" which should be obvious to anyone that the …

And Then There Were Three...

I can't believe it's already almost over.  It went so fast.  Maybe because there were only 11 celebrities.  Maybe because time just flies.  Whatever the reason,  it has really flown.  Every Monday night my fingers fly on the keyboard during the show, and on my phones after.  By Tuesday morning I have texting thumbitis.  Yeah, it's real.   First on the roster are my pet favorites.  Erin and Maks.  I love them because they are so dang cute together.  They just fight like a romantic comedy.  Or like brother and sister.  I prefer to think of the former.  Tonight everyone dances two dances and the second includes a solo.  For the first dance, Erin and Maks are dancing the Viennese Waltz.  In practice she nails a move and Maks couldn't be prouder.  Their dance was in a word:  BEAUTIFUL.  She is really neat to watch.  She is so tall and thin and she is talented so when she dances it is good.

Len told her she took a giant step through the door.  Bruno gushed about how much she…

It's Tuesday...time for some STICKY NOTE fun. 




Now if you want to play along with all the other cool kids, just link up with SUPAH MOMMY.  Or if you simply want to play with the sticky notes...go here.

Which is Worse?

Can I just say I hate commercials?  They are loud, obnoxious, and I just wish I could skip through them always.  But no such luck.  We are subjected to their noise and stupidity.  Okay, every now and then a clever one sneaks in just to throw us off track.  But the commercials I am focusing on are not loud necessarily,  obnoxious ...?  Probably.  Disgusting?  Definitely.  Quick go give the babies something to do.  I'll wait here....ok....good...now we can discuss.

First up is a Victoria's Secret commercial.  Good, I see we are all on the same page here.  Once upon a time this place was class and elegance.  Now....welll... you decide...



Okay.... now let's look at commercial number 2.



Now you may or may not recall, that the Lane Bryant commercial was pulled from the networks, because it was too suggestive and might offend people.  Can somebody tell me how a curvy woman going to surprise her man is more offensive than a bunch of girls rolling around in their underwear?  I'…

Emmy is having trouble uploading her pictures so my cousin put them on her blog, and I am such a bully I stole snatched saved them and thought I would share here.  Hmmm...am I excited?  Of course I am.  I get baby fixes this way.  haha.  
My cousin, Rachel--Eric's sister-- says he is small but a fighter in deed.  I am just grateful we all get to see him.  
Not too happy here, maybe if they would stop poking him.
Keep checking Emmy's blog, mine or Rachel's.
