I broke the 5 second rule

9 comments
My confession for the week :

I broke the 5 second rule today.
Ok, since no one was around to see me break this rule. Does it still count as a break-age? hmmmm....

Popcorn started out in a bowl on top of my laptop.
BUT
ended up in the middle of the floor

My knee hit the laptop while I was typing.
(multi-tasking, people....multi-tasking)

I was deep in thought so I let the popcorn sit there for 10 seconds.
OK OK More like 20 seconds

I did eventually pick the popcorn back up....
AND YES
I ate it.

I wonder if those extra seconds caused me to injest even more bacteria?

Oh, ya know what...
This was not my only confession for the week.
I forgot all about the ones that I confessed over at Beki's blog.


confessions
Do you have a confession?
Visit Beki and let her know.
She is giving away one of her hand stamped necklaces.
Hurry because this one ends tomorrow.

UMM HELLO??
My baby ain't NO Einstein.
What's up with that?
HUH?

I went out and bought these dvd's to make my kid smart.
Ya see, Lil BUBBA'S momma (from down the road) talks about him being a genious and stuff.
Ya know,
Lil Bubba can do this....
Lil Bubba can do that...
Heck, I wouldn't about to let Lil Bubba outdo my kid.
We were going to SHOW them.

UH HUH

My baby was gonna be an Einstein.
HELLO?
The dvd had "EINSTEIN" on it.
AND
Einstein was like REAL SMART!!

Bought those dvds
Popped 'em in the dvd player
AND
let them do their job


Of course, I didn't expect anything after day 1 or even day 2 but BOY oh BOY was I excited for day 3.

"Alright baby, show me your SMARTS!" I said
We had ourself a little "lesson" right there in the floor.
yes.we.did.
Of course, I started off with the easy stuff.....
Ya know
Like
Pre-Algebra questions
I was gonna save the Geometry for Day 5.
BUT
We ran into a little problem.
Baby wouldn't tell me the answer.
OK
So maybe Algebra wasn't baby's subject.
We moved on to French.
I asked baby to sing Mary had a little lamb (in french, of course).
Again, NOTHING.

Now....here is when I started to worry.

Would we need to go purchase Baby Einstein for Dummies?


:Sigh:
Then I got word that Baby Einstein dvd's really didn't turn kids into geniuses.
YOU HAD ME FOOLED, BABY EINSTEIN!
BUT
What a relief...
I was thinking my kid was a dummy.

Now I have to go find some other dvd's to make my kid smart.
Suggestions?
I mean, I would teach them myself but I am like SUPER BUSY around here.
I just don't have time for things like that.

(that's me rolling my eyes)

I'm curious
How many of you are going to actually get a refund on these dvds?
just-a- wonderin'

Guess who's got numbered comments now?

Thanks to a tutorial I found via The Mom Nerd.
The instructions were very simple but when I went back to make sure the comments were numbered, they weren't (or so I thought.)
After some more searching, I found this tutorial on Katydid and Kid.
My numbers were there and she helped me find them.
*Just had to click on the posts url.*

This will make my life so much easier.

I highly suggest checking out the links above if you want to number your comments in blogger.

hmmm....I'm thinking we should do a ~special~ live giveaway in honor of my new NUMBERED COMMENTS!

Whatcha' think?
Check in tomorrow, folks.

I've been wanting some bagels for awhile now.
However, every time I made the grocery list the bagels were never on there.
As in : Momma forgot
But
Momma didn't forget the past week.
I finally got those bagels!
What else was on the list?
CREAM CHEESE, of course.

Get.em...Got.em...Good!
I toasted my bagel and put GOBS and GOBS of cream cheese on it.



mmmmmmmmmmmmmm

or
So I thought.

Those bagels that I had wanted?
Well, I don't want them so much anymore.
The cream cheese....
Yeah, I still want that.
The bagels?
Not so much.

I walk past those bagels daily.
They beg to be eaten (especially before the expiration date).
I just can't.
I don't want them.

Did I use them?
*ashamed*
Did I really just want the cream cheese?
Did I only suggest buying bagels to make myself look better?
I mean, eating cream cheese out of the container would just be wrong, right?
The bagels, Were they just a cover up?

:Sigh:
I must tell the bagels.
I owe them the truth.
I only used them for the cream cheese....

Yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh....
So, I'm probably the only one that that "GOOGLE WAVE" was like a real wave.

NO, not this kind of wave



But more like the wave you would do at a sporting event.

You know . . .
like this?



Not real sure how that would be possible but I imagined sites being lifted (highlighted) upppppppp all over the GOOGLE-SPHERE and then DOWWWWWWWWnnnnn again.

Up
and
Down

Like a wave

I mean, there's only like 2 KA-TRILLION sites through google.
It could happen.

Wouldn't it be fun to travel through my brain??

I love stream of conscious blog posts. Nice to know I'm not the only person who thinks out loud.

I attribute it to the lack of memory after having kids. If I say it out loud, someone's bound to hear and remember for me, right?

Ti-faux (not tivo but the Dish Network version)
Ya know, the fake Tivo?

LOVE IT.

Can't live with out it.

Wouldn't it be cool if humans had features like that?


Fast Forward, maybe?
Yeah
Because Sometimes (Ok all of the time) Big girl spews too many details when she is telling me something.
Like....
"Momma, You know that dog (the one down the street, the black one not the brown one)?"
"Well, he just got in the neighbors (the neighbor that lives across from the man....not the tall skinny man but the round old man) garbage can."
"There are cans (looks like green giant green beans but it could be corn, I am not sure) everywhere."
"Should I go over there and help them pick it up? (Well, not all of it. Just the stuff that will not get on my hands. I don't wanna touch anything gross because I just put lotion on my hands.)
Ya know, the lotion that was in the bathroom cabinet? Not the small bathroom but the other one."


Fast Forward...JUST GET TO THE POINT
in other words: SPIT IT OUT!

A rewind button would come in handy too.
Ya know, to find out WHO REALLY licked that icing off of the cake.
Cuz no one wants to fess up any other way.
Yep, I am still ill over that one.
IT WAS MY CAKE.
GRRR

PAUSE would be good too.
I could finally get my TIME OUT without making my children leave a message after the BEEEEP!
Uh huh, I do that.
When I have had it for the day.....You will get this lil message:
MOMMY IS DONE FOR THE DAY.
PLEASE LEAVE A MESSAGE AFTER THE BEEEEEEEEP.
DONE as in D-----ONE!

MUTE, Need I say more?
blah blah blah blah blah blah blah
blahhh blah blah
(mute)






What? I can't hear you.
You have been muted.

.....Dreaming
Oh, and I can almost guarantee that this remote would NEVER be lost. I would tie it around my neck if needed.

Speaking of fast forwarding:
Does anyone else fast forward through the dying scenes(tv shows)?
Ya know, the ones that take for-ever??
A cough here
A cough there
One last goodbye
Oh, now a vision
Uh-oh here come the bright lights.
NO COME BACK
NO GO.
Another cough.
NOOOOOO
Fast forward....
:Geesh:
Die already.


Am I the only one to do this??
Please tell me I am not.
Should I be ashamed?

and SPIT changes it all

10 comments

Describe how motherhood has changed you

One word:

Spit

Yep, that's right.
Spit

Me (before motherhood) :
"I will N---E---VER clean my child's face with SPIT."

"N-EEE-VER!"

EWWW!

&
"GROSS!"
&
"NOPE, NOT GONNA DO IT."

Me (during motherhood) :

"Uh-Oh, Here comes Prissy McKPrissy-son and her 2 annoyingly perfect children."
"Kids....Quick! Come here and let me wipe away last night's leftovers."
"Let me grab a Wet-One."

Oh, that's right...
I am one of THOSE MOMS.
Ya know, one of THOSE MOMS that do not carry stuff like that.

"What to do ....What to do.....She will be over here any minute."

1..2..3..

Spit meet face.

I've only done this once.
Ok, MAYBE three times.
BUT
The last two times really didn't count.
I used the kid's spit.
Yep, I am clever like that.

"Friends are the bacon bits in the salad bowl of life."

I compare you to bacon.
That's a compliment.

I love bacon.

I've been lacking in the whole "share the love" department. So today . . . I share some fab reads from some of the "friends" that follow me and/or some of the "friends" that I follow.

NOW SERVING:
your daily dose of nonsense

*

I've always heard the term "Scaredy Cat" but it never really CLICKED with me.

Maybe I am slow? (Shhhhh....)
I mean
Sure, I've seen cats run from people.
They have ran from me when I made weird snake hissing sounds.
psssssssssssss
but
I never put two and two together until the other night.
I was in the bathroom cleaning the toilet (Fun Times, ya'll...Fun Times) and the cat came in being all nosey and stuff.

*I do get the whole "Curiosity" thing and cats.

She was creeping up on a jacket that was in the floor.
WHAT? You don't keep your coats in the bathroom floor???
I reached for the jacket and she JUMPED when I moved it.
Jumped as in : completely lifted all four legs off the floor
It was quiet funny.
She would creep up on the jacket again and I would move it....again.
She jumped.
This went on and on for awhile.
She didn't give up.
NEITHER DID I.
It doesn't take much to amuse me.

"A-HA!"
"Scaredy Cat", I thought.
"Gotta blog it."

I tell ya...I am getting a little bit smarter each day.


Now I am on a quest to find out if a GOOSE is really SILLY.
Do you know the answer?

Well, ok with me.

Obviously it is crucial.

Well, She has some super groovy templates.
GUESS WHAT?
They are free!

I'll gussy this place up for fall.....Y'all!

Dear Stanley,

29 comments
Ok, I KNOW .....
Stanley is NOT your name but since you can't seem to get MY name right then I find this one more appropriate.
Plus, I kind of like Stanley better. (Just sayin')


Anyhoo
Mr. PR professional (I call you Stanley, remember),
I am a little miffed.
Why?
Well, let's just look at the email that was waiting for me in my inbox last night :
(discussion to follow)

Hey Laura,
I was checking out your site and I feel that this (BEEEEP) offer would be a great fit for My Trendy Tykes. As this deal is perfect for Parents, you can win over $500 in savings. The perfect way to tackle the recession, even for the average person that wants to save a little money. This is a fun deal all around, for kids to nieces and nephews.

Let me know if you can post this for me by Thursday, that would be awesome. If so, can you send me the link. If you can do this we may have a giveaway or two coming up, that could work for your site as well.

If you can post this by Thursday, I can show (BEEEEP) My Trendy Tykes.

Let me know your thoughts...

Best
STANLEY
(The name that I gave you)

I am willing to bet that ANY one of my readers can pick out the first thing wrong with this email.

Probably because they know my name.
It's really not that hard to find either.
Ya see that big banner at the top of the screen?
The banner with just ONE of many photos of myself?
(Yes, I have the "Look at Me" disease.)
Here.Look.
Photobucket
See all those red circles?
They are showing you my name.
My momma named me Linda.
Although, she almost named me Lisa but not Laura.
*
Yes, It could have been worse.
You could have called me "Ms. My Trendy Tykes".
uh huh, received that once, twice....too many times

I'm not asking for much.
REALLY.I'M.NOT.
I do welcome any and all PR requests.
And while I don't expect you to read my blog posts
side note: MANY OF THE WONDERFUL REPS THAT I WORK WITH DO ACTUALLY READ MY BLOG AND GET TO KNOW ME. THEY HAVE EVEN EMAILED ME ABOUT RECENT POSTS. I PUFFY HEART THOSE REPS THE MOST.
What? I don't lie.

I do kind.of expect you to get my name right.
OR
At least start the email off with a generic greeting.
Heck, I would even take "To Whom it may concern" over someone else's name.

The name issue was probably the thing that MIFFED me the most.
But then we must discuss this whole "Post this by Thursday, send me the link and if you do so then we MAY offer you a giveaway or two for the readers" stuff.

Oh, and the "IF you do this and send it to me by that certain time, I will then show (beeep) your blog" thing too.

Yeahhhh....

NO!
First of all, while this sounds like a great campaign and all. I know nothing about (beeeep) company. Ya see, we live nearly 500 miles from the closest one.
Since I know nothing about your company then surely you can understand why I would not want to push it on my readers, right?

I do have a reputation to uphold.
(cough)

Plus you sent this email to me at 5:01pm on Wednesday night and wanted it published on THURSDAY?
hmmmm.....
NO!
That's not good for me either.

And while I know publicity is key and I am sure that telling the head honchos at your company about my blog (of course IF I post on THURSDAY) would probably bring me millions and millions of readers....
I am gonna have to pass.

And
*
SERIOUSLY

Did you think you were getting on MY BLOG without offering ME something?

Haven't you heard???
Mommy bloggers are freaking greedy, man.
We only do this for the FREE STUFF.

It's (been) FALL Y'all (for a bit now)

13 comments
I'm only a month behind.....
But
REALLY
I am gonna get the house decorated for fall before Thanksgiving.
errr
I hope.
Ok
To be honest . . .
I can't find my glass fishbowl-looking thingys.
Ya know, the ones for THIS CRAFTY centerpiece of mine.
OH
AND
I don't have candy corn.
UH.YEAH.
That's why I haven't decorated.
I just can't get out the rest of the decorations even though HUNKY HUBBY has placed them right in front of my face for 3 weeks now
UNTIL I FIND MY FISHBOWL-LOOKING THINGYS.
Stop looking at me like THAT!
I am going to decorate, I promise.
STOP IT.

OK.FINE.
Challenge me.
Not really

I will pay good ole Wally World (That's Wal-Mart, really) a visit tonight and get some fishbowl-looking thingies and candy corn.
If I don't have this house decorated by tomorrow night.....
Well, I'll drink a diet pepsi.
ewww

I am really glad that we had this little talk.
I feel better about myself now.
Plus
I'm motivated.
I think.

And since I will be in Wally World (Wal-Mart, really) buying candy corn....
I'll pick up an extra bag or two PLUS some white chocolate
AND
MAKE THIS!


Photobucket

I might even share it.
Ok, I probably won't.
You can just make your own, ok?
Visit The Idea Room for this yummy Candy Corn bark recipe.

ooooh let's talk about THE OFFICE "Wedding"

16 comments
They tied the knot!!
Jim and Pam finally got married.

I will admit, the episode before the WEDDING wasn't that funny to me but OH.MY!
The Office totally ROCKED MY WORLD with Jim and Pam getting married.
I laughed.
I cried.
I laughed so much that I cried.
and then
I just cried.
(I am very emotional like that.)
I don't even know where to begin . . .
Of course, the opening did make me turn my head away for a minute.
HOW COME I'M ALWAYS EATING WHEN SOMETHING LIKE THAT IS ON T.V.??
And WHO eats hardboiled eggs in the office? ahem Dwight eeek!

I bet it smelled like TOOT in there for sure.

Kevin was totally ROCKIN' that new hairdo.
However, the kleenex box shoes?
ROFL!

And let me just say this . . .
I will NOT be getting ice from the ice maker at ANY hotel EVER AGAIN.

Poor Andy
POOR POOR ANDY!
Public Service Announcement: Never EVER leave your keys in your pocket while dancing ESPECIALLY if you decide to end the routine with the "split" move.

Chin up, MeeMaw.
At least you are getting a baby named after you.
It could be worse, You could be getting an original and totally ODD Michael Scott painting.
ROFL!

Baby MeeMaw
I think I'll name my next kid after my grandma.
Except
We will call it BABY MAW MAW.
That's original....Don't ya think?

NO THEY DIDN'T....
Yes, they DID!
They (The wedding participants AND THE WHOLE OFFICE STAFF) walked down the aisle just like in that YOU TUBE video.
Ya know....
THIS ONE.
(Loved it, btw)

A full hour of nothing but laughs.
AND
a few sniffles
OK
almost a few full fledged SOBS
I did play it off by pretending that I was laughing so hard that I cried.
I mean, I have a reputation to uphold.
Ya know?

If you haven't seen this episode yet.
WATCH IT.
Best episode so far!!

This is another great dvd to add to your collection.
Some of the lions in this dvd are so beautiful that I almost wish we could have one as a pet.
Notice...I said "Almost"
I ain't CRAZY!

Want it?
Leave me some comments below . . .
And just like my LIVE giveaways in the past, you are allowed to enter as often as you would like. Just make sure your comments are before and after someone elses.

I'll end this giveaway tomorrow @ 5:30pm CST
24 hours from now
&
3 winners will be announced

HAVE FUN!

Disclosure: Bender Helper Impact did supply this dvd for review because they are awesome like that. No payment was received. The "review" you see up there?? Well, that was entirely my own opinion. My family enjoyed this dvd. Your family "may" enjoy it too. However, if they don't...
Well, that is ok too.
Bender Helper Impact also supplied the 3 dvd's that I am giving away.
Once again, I was not paid to POST my OPINIONS on this dvd.
I post them because ....
It's my blog.
Plain and Simple.

No matter how much I threaten them

If you have a zit on your face
My kids will let you know.

If you have something in your teeth

My kids will let you know.

If you need to wipe/blow your nose
that's right . . .

My kids will let you know.

Yep, we teach honesty around here.
AND
WELL

Maybe they are just a tad bit TOO HONEST.

Kids can be embarrassing.
Just sayin'

Photobucket

which reminds me of a situation that they put me through sometime last year


For those of you that do not know, I watch a couple of children every week.
Uh, yes....
I.AM.CRAZY!
There's a total of 5 children @ my home everyday.

Anyhoo
I had received a call from some sort of childcare coordinator one day.
(no clue how she found me but she did)

She was all "Blah Blah Blah." "Blahhhhh Blah & Blah." and then she said "You will get some free toys and items to help w/your in-home daycare if you allow me to come and meet with you."
Me: "Yeah, come on."
(still having no clue what she was coming for or what she was about.)
Hey! She mentioned FREE STUFF and Y'all know how I am about FREE STUFF.
sort-of.kind-of.greedy

Long Story.....Short (Yeah.Right)
The lady came to the house.
BUT
Before she came I gave my children the run-down.
Ya know, stuff like:
DON'T EMBARRASS ME.
DON'T ASK THIS.
DON'T ASK THAT.
DON'T TOUCH THAT.
DON'T EMBARRASS ME.
JUST DON'T!
Don't Don't Don't!

The Tykes were all "Sure Mommy." (looking all sweet and deceiving)
The lady showed up and we started talking.
She wanted to sit back and "Watch Us" for awhile.
The first few mins went pretty good.
AND THEN IT STARTED.
LIL MAN decided to run up the stairs and then FALL down the stairs.
Yep, he tripped over his feet on the very top stair and didn't catch his balance again until the VERY last stair.
UH.HUH.
Oh, that's not all....
The BIG GIRL popped into the living room to let me know that she was "itchy". Being the sweet mother that I am, I looked at her and said "Oh Honey, it will be ok. Just don't scratch so much."
She then said :
"It's probably all THESE FLEAS we have in the house."
I.could.have.died.

FYI: We have never been infested w/fleas.
We have one cat (indoor cat that has never set foot outside.)
The fleas....actually mosquito bites after inspecting.

The childcare coordinator?
Well, she actually called me several times after that.
SHE WANTED TO COME BACK.
I had to tell her that I was not interested.
It killed me.
.....all that FREE STUFF down the drain because my kids are just THAT embarrassing.

Well, if you have been visiting my blog for any amount of time then you know how much I love supporting my fellow bloggers.

Megan from Daily Essentials and Deals hosts In HIS word Wednesday.
Click on the link for more information and hopefully you will join today.....and if not today then maybe next Wednesday?

(of course....ANY DAY is a great day to share HIS word. Don't ya think?)

Here's my submission for the day:

*Last week, I shared a video on facebook from Final Act Productions and it was pretty amazing so I thought I would share another one here today.



Click it.Watch it.Think about it

Are we true disciples and followers or uncommitted pretenders?
Woah!

With lips like these.....I couldn't resist

I can't help myself.

Y'all know I can't.

I have to do this.
Because
Honestly?
If I don't make fun of you . . .
then who will?
hmm
That did not sound right.
UH
What I meant to say is....
You are amongst friends.
I mean, I can make fun of you but no one else better think about it.
OR
I will pull pages out of their reading books.
OR
Something MUCH MUCH WORSE
I will tie them up in a chair and make them watch me eat the LAST BON BON in the package.
YEP!
I will.

Today I will be discussing
the POUTY FACE, THE SMOOCHY LIPS, THE PUCKER-ROO . . .
errr
Whatever you call it.
It seems to be all over the place.
In facebook profiles
twitter pics
blog posts
Heck, I am surprised the TODAY SHOW hasn't included a "How to PUCKER UP" series on their 4 hour long snooze fest.

Photobucket

What's with this, people?

Is the "Smoochy" face really some sort of secret code?
Does the "PUCKER ROO" make your nose appear smaller?

I decided to do a little research.....
My conclusions:

Eh, not many.

But I did walk away with good "profile" pics.
WHAT DO YOU THINK??

Here's my "WHATCHA TALKIN' BOUT Willis" face :

Photobucket

And the "Wanda gon' rock yo world" face:

"Heeeeeyyyyy"
(Please tell me that someone remembers Wanda!)

Photobucket
And my . . .
Uh
Well
not real sure about this one
Photobucket

Ok, in CONCLUSION to the CONCLUSIONS . . .
It still looks crazy.

BUT
Pucker Up, Y'all!

Not Me! Monday : The Great Cake Debate

4 comments


^
.
.
.
(Click on that banner, ok?)

I did NOT contemplate asking Hunky Hubby to pick up a birthday cake w/a container of ice cream yesterday......

I would NEVER EVER spend like 30 minutes debating something like this.
(debating with myself)

Should I? Nah
Should I? YEAH
Should I?

NOT ME!

And my reasons for wanting A WHOLE BIRTHDAY CAKE would never be....
because I didn't think that last piece (from my original bday cake) would be big enough for me

I mean, SERIOUSLY....
*
*
*
Ok, seriously
I only had a smidgen of cake left.
I wanted to eat it.
BUT
I wanted to eat it with ice-cream.
Which
Got me to thinking....
What if that "smidgen" is not enough for me?
Obviously, I would need a WHOLE NEW birthday cake to go with all of the ice-cream, right?
I mean, I didn't want to waste the ice cream.
DUH!

P to the S
I did NOT call hunky hubby and ask for a birthday cake.
ONLY
ICE-CREAM
But I did think about it.
err
I mean I didn't.

P to the P to the S
Who came up with this whole "Cake and Ice-Cream" thing anyway?
Maybe the same one's that came up with the "Peanut Butter and Chocolate" thing or the "Chips and Dip" combo, huh?

Isn't that our job?

I love me some NERDS.



I may just make fun of your toes.
However
I will apologize.
(in advance)

Don't worry though.
I may make fun of your toes but KNOW THIS....
