Time For The Traveling Heart-Shaped Rock Project - Part 3!

Photobucket

Can you believe the Traveling Heart-Shaped Rock Project was started 2 years ago?  Wow.  I can't.  We've had two of our "little gems" lost along the way.  (Probably the same place matching socks in the dryer vanish to, I don't know.)  Since blog pal interest is still strong, I'm going to start the blog project, "Traveling Heart-Shaped Rock Project" yet again!  There are 24 stops so far :->  For those that don't know what it's all about (or for those that are on the list but need a refresher) here's the idea:

While on the Oregon Coast I found this "little gem" and decided I didn't want its journey to end. 'Why not' I thought 'share this symbol with my blog pals?' So, here we are! Want to take part in this blog-hopping photo project?  Here's what you do:

*E-mail your name & address to annharrison@comcast.net. I will add your destination to the list. Once you receive the little heart-shaped gem...

*Take a picture of it with something that represents you; it could be an object, a place, whatever you like.

*Then... post the picture on your blog; let your readers know you are participating in The Traveling Heart-Shaped Rock Project.

*Let me know when you receive our little gem; I'll send you the name & address of the next blogger to mail the rock to.

*At the end of it's journey I'll create a slideshow of your pics.

I know that some bloggers plan on sending the "gem" on it's way along with a little trinket/souvenir for the next blogger. I love it! Do what feels right, just have fun. And, don't forget, take pics and post 'em.  I'll be sharing your pics on my blog as well.  You will be the T.H.S.R.P. Spotlight Blogger! At the end of its journey I'll create a slideshow of our pics reminiscing about its travels (and wishing it had been me :-> ).  On and on it goes! (I hope :-> ).

Alright blog pals, have fun at our Virtual Girls Night Out! If you like, leave your blog link if you like and we'll visit your blog and say, "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…

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.

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?
