Dear Trevor From Brain Rush, Thank You

As we move along through the heavy transition our friends are experiencing, we are doing what we can to make some things a little lighter.

Luckily the sun is shining. That feels good. There are LOTS of Otter Pops in the freezer (always a hit.) And silly cartoons distract from reality. One new show on Cartoon Network caught my attention and I just had to share this with you. (We could all use a laugh, right?)

Cartoon Network has a game show called Brain Rush. This show takes unsuspecting guests at Knotts Berry Farm and asks them if they would like to answer trivia questions while riding the crazy, wild, outrageous rides. Now, the participants are already going on the ride so they aren't being tricked. They earn money for every correct answer and, have the potential to make $5000. For that amount of money damn my dizzyness! Let's do it!

The following clip is Trevor. He voluntarily went on the first ride, did well enough on that round, and has moved on to the next round, The Silver Bullet. He said that rides frighten him but, he's willing to face his fear and ride this sucker. What you are going to see is a one-shot on Trevor. (The program shows both participant and host along with the correct answer along the bottom of the screen.) The host is sitting next to him. The host has read a story and is going to ask questions about the story. On we go...

Unfortunately what you don't see is the host laughing so hard he's wiping away tears. My girls, our sweet friend and I laughed so hard we were crying too.

I know we probably shouldn't laugh. But we really needed this. Thank you dear Trevor. ((hug))

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…

How to Find the Safest Gear for your Baby

Nothing compares to the joys of being a parent. Having a newborn in the family brings couples closer and makes the entire household more cheerful and interesting. But as we all know, being a parent is not just about spending time with your baby. More than anything else, it also requires exerting a lot of effort to make sure that your baby is always safe and free from potential hazards. To further help you in this endeavor, here are some useful tips for finding the safest gear for your baby as you go through various baby product guides:

Opt for a non-toxic gear. The first thing you need to check is the composition of the safety gear. What is the material made from? Is it non-toxic? Be sure that it is because babies have a strong tendency to put everything they see or touch in their mouths. It goes without saying that a safety gear that is made from toxic materials could poison your baby, in the long run, so be very careful about the safety gears you purchase.
Make sure it is sturdy. The …

Yes, I'm a Dork for the Grocery Outlet

So our neighborhood was notified that a Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market would be opening in the new year.  I can't tell you how thrilled I was to hear this!  And when I received my friendly Grocery Outlet postcard with my friendly notice of the friendly festivities for their Grand Opening I actually put it on my calendar.  I knew exactly where I was going to be on Saturday morning.

Whoo Hoo! There was a giant "Wheel - o - Bargains".  I spun and won a $1 off my purchase.  Oh man I can't tell you how happy I am when I get money off my purchase.  yeah baby.  We were one of the first 1000 customer's so my husband and I received free Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market reusable bags!  (Rob was so excited.  Yes, he can be a dork sometimes too.)

What is it about this place?  Most of the items are things that I've never heard of, or have any interest in, however I am drawn to it like a kid to a candy store.  (Or better yet, like a wine lovin' mom who's found some…
