"7 Weird Facts"

Let's get to know each other a little better and share 7 Weird Facts about ourselves.

Me?  Let's see...

1. I love the show "Will & Grace". I could watch the show every day. LOVE IT!!!

2. I love white food. If I'm at a buffet my plate will come back looking a quilt of white. I don't know why? I just love food that happens to be white.

3. I HATE those little wooden spoons that come with those little cups of ice cream! Hate the feeling on my teeth!

4. I HATE the smell of manilla envelopes! I almost feel like I can't breathe! Hate It!!!

5. Whew... calming down... The older I get I lose interest in chocolate.

6. I don't like the feeling of a dirty floor, especially while I'm in bare feet. It's almost like I can't put my feet completely on the floor.  (I'm sure if I were young I would be labeled with some disorder.  Whatever)

7. I have a horrible memory. I drives everyone I know crazy.  (Or does it? I can't remember ;-> )


Time For The Traveling Heart-Shaped Rock Project!





Update on our participants:  We now have 19 bloggers participating in the T.H.S.R.P.  The latest is in Dublin!  As soon as we get pictures from Brenda I'll be sure and share.  (If you don't know what the heck I'm talking about click:  here )


Hey blog pals, I can't wait to see what "weird" things you share.  "Weird" is subjective though, isn't it?  Happy VGNO!!!

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.

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.
