The OTHER 12 Days of Christmas

I LOVE THIS! I found this on a Mommy Blog and I just love it. It's not easy, but it's well worth it.... Can you take the challenge? Feel Free to Share!

I challenge you to do the 12 Days of Christmas Note Challenge 
Here are 12 people to whom you can write a note. It doesn't need to be a big long thing.

"Just" a Mom?

Some "Mom" terms drive me nuts ... and some really tick me off. 


Mom jeans. This is a negative term to describe jeans that look awful.  The jeans that are ill-fitting. Jeans that have elastic waistbands. Moms like all kinds of jeans. 


Toddlers Rule The World! Just Ask Them!

20 Rules Toddlers Live By!

 I am convinced that toddlers have the following Code of Conduct hardwired into their DNA.

1. You are the family alarm clock. It is your job to wake up at the ass-crack of dawn every day.
2. ALWAYS crap your pants AFTER leaving the house. Your best bet is to clench those cheeks together until you have left your street, and then EXPLODE!!!

Paint Power!

This might be a little heavy, or even strange, but do you ever feel like you are "channelling" someone?

Lately I have been painting. Now, keep in mind, I have never picked up a brush until a few months ago. But now, I paint whenever I get a free hour or so.

Can Dolly Get Any Bigger?

Get your mind out of the gutter!

Dolly is going to expand Dollywood by ... (wait for it)... $300 MILLION DOLLARS!

And that will include a brand new resort hotel. You can read all about it here.

When at a loss...

When at a loss for something to blog about, send your blogettes to a far better blog than yours.




Thanks to Anna Marie for sharing with with me! Anyone who has ever had a dog would love it!


Who Says I Can't Cook?

You know, Anna Marie and Clint are always poking fun at me about my culinary skills or lack thereof. But one thing I love to make is PASTA SALAD.

Now do not tell me that Pasta Salad is not considered cooking. If you are in the kitchen heating or chopping or measuring anything, you are cooking! That's MY rule and I'm sticking with it!


The first thing I noticed about Margaret was her hair. Falling well past the middle of her back, it was pearl-like and shining in a loose ponytail that swished gently across the back of her bright pink t-shirt. As I drove past her walking along the side of Shackle Island road, I could not help but notice the brisk strides she was taking in her trim white cropped pants while she hauled a stuffed grocery bag almost half the size of her delicate frame.
