Corporate E-Lo

If you had to choose a song that would be the "theme" of your corporation's annual conference, what would you pick? My thought is Fleetwood Mac's "Don't Stop." Everything is just so overused... we also thought about Van Hagar's "Right Now."

Any ideas?

I want it all... I want it all... and I want it now...

I have to admit, I'm a material girl. And it's a material world. And when I'm bored, nothing soothes my soul more than internet shopping. Which is why I love these sites:

piperlime.com

Shoes, shoes, and more shoes. Evil if you have a gap card, like I do. I'm eyeing these badboys up. Especially since I have a 20% off coupon burning a hole in my purse.

uncommongoods.com

Uncommon goods. Goods for the uncommon! Like me. I'm personally coveting this. Because I think it's important to remember what's important... like picking up lactose free milk every other day for my champion milk chugger.

paperstudio.com

Not because I'm a fan of paper - I'm a fan of their pendant trays. I need to get me some of those and make some cool personalized pendants.

The HOW Conference

I missed it this year, but I'm trying to talk my boss into sending us next year. Keep your fingers crossed.

Amazon is my old standby. Anything I need I get there. But right now the number one item on my wishlist is this... especially since I'm going to a Photoshop for Photographers seminar in Pittsburgh on Monday.

Sigh.

Ain't No Jive Turkey

So - it was time for a new look. What do you think? Pretty pink, huh? I like pink. It's one of my favorite colors. So eff off. My only problem is my sidebar... I... just... can't... seem... to get it... up here... ugh.

Anyhoo - lots going on these days. We're in the process of ripping apart the kitchen and putting it back together. A few steps left and my kitchen will have been upgraded. Not NEW, but different. And different can be better.

Next is the bathroom! Pictures will follow.

Speaking of different being better - I changed my email address. If you'd like my new address, email me at my old one. You'll get a quirky auto response back from me, but just ignore that... I'll make sure to add you to my address list.

And that's it for now.

I heart Top 40.

I'm a big dork for it - but I love Rhianna's "Umbrella." And I certainly appreciate Mandy Moore's cover of it...

Love Bites

http://squirrelstories.blogspot.com/2005/08/uterus-on-legs.html

It took me forever to find this link. I really need to label my posts.


This past weekend Ryan and I spent with my parents and Lyric at camp. Lyric loves camp, because there is always someone around to take her for a walk - be it me, or Ryan, or my mom, or my dad. And the dogs follow her where ever she goes. The kid loves taking walks, and camp is a great place to do it.

She also had the experience of sleeping in a tent for the first time. That in itself was an experience for us, because she was just TOO EXCITED! You mean we SLEEP in here? Not bounce around like crazy people! BUT THIS IS JUST TOO EXCITING! FORGET SLEEP!

Thankfully, she passed out after about an hour.

It's getting to that awkward stage right now with Lyric that I'm not sure how to discipline her. She does things that need corrective action, and short of telling her NO, I'm not sure what else to do, because I don't know what to do with her. Case in point - she's a biter. I don't know why, or how it started, but the kid loves biting, especially when she's tired. I look like a battered woman with crazy bruises all up and down my arms.

So - parents - how do I stop the biting? Do I spray the bitter apple stuff that I used to use for Rocky all over me? What do I do? I'm in a wedding in 68 days that involves me wearing a strapless dress... it's not gonna look so hot if I have bruises and scars all over me.

What would you do?

Holy Eff

This is unbelievable.

I've written about the Duggar family before. When they only had 14 kids... but crap, they are one breeding bunch.

What do you think it's like to have spent 10.5 years of your life pregnant?
