This week's Tuesday Truth is light-hearted (no soul barring truth, or question, from me today).

I took the weekend off from blogging.  Instead I threw parties!

First, I hosted a Scentsy party on Thursday night.  I'm a Scentsy Consultant and I had slowed down with my business. I wasn't sure if I was going to continue however, I got a spark and decided to stick with it.  (I love the product and I just wasn't ready to let it go ;-> ).

Then, the most important party happened on Saturday.  We celebrated Rob turning 50 with our family and friends!  The rain held off and we were able to play in the yard.

Rob works so hard on his garden and I'm happy he was able to show it off.

I had his school pictures, age range 8 - 15, copied onto card stock then cut them out.  While we started to sing Happy Birthday everyone brought out their "masks" to surprise Rob with a crowd of his various years smiling back at him.  (See video here.)

There were lots of stories, lots of laughs, lots of silliness.  (And... lots of beer.  Thanks Bridgeport Brewing!)

How lovely he looks in his gold curls

Jennifer's having a heck of a good time!  (Thanks Jennifer)

After months of trying to get this party together it finally happened.  Rob was happy and so were the guests.  Whew!  (I wish I had taken more pictures.  But those darn hosting duties!)

Yesterday we attended my cousins daughter's 6th birthday and it was a hoot!  Little Riley is amazing and she had a huge Mickey Mouse bounce house right in her front yard!  Again, I missed taking pictures of when my Katie and Lily joined in the bounce house fun, but I heard they had a good time.

It was a great weekend!  How was your weekend?

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…
