Random Fragments: Is There Any Other Kind?

Mommy's Idea


I want to be sure that you know the dance contest is ON! Official rules posted today: Just Dance Your Bloggy Off 


I love my blogging friends. I told you all how Hubs makes fun of me for not being able to whistle and how he tells me that I'm the only person in the world who can't. Well, 32 of the 89(!!!!) comments were admissions from other non-whistlers. And there were quite a few "weak whistlers." I'm ignoring those of you who called me a loser for not being able to whistle and I'M TELLING HUBS THAT HE IS WRONG. I love when I can do that.

 When I make buffalo chicken pasta, my two youngest literally lick their plates clean. Should I try to teach them better table manners or be thrilled that I don't have picky eaters?


Do you know that my Survivor Buff-on WON? So, it paid off to post the most horrible picture ever taken of me. That's what I was going for, but I'm still thrilled to have won a prize for it. You can see all of them HERE. I won fabulous WINE-RELATED prizes.


I smell so yummy today. I won Philosophy's Snow bathwash and lotion from a giveaway recently, but I can't remember whose blog I won it from. I hate not being able to thank someone for it. Did I win it from you? Could you tell me? Because I'm really obsessive about this stuff. And I LOVE the lotion. Really, I can't stop smelling myself.


Only ONE WEEK left until I leave for Bloggy Bootcamp in Baltimore. I can't wait! Are you going to be there? I know a lot of you ladies will be dressing up, but I'll be in jeans and have my son's tote bag that he got from kindergarten registration yesterday. He hates it so I might as well use it. It says: I'm a Big Kid Now.


Trying to decide on a funny shirt.
I've always loved this one:

Come to the dark side, we have cookies.
Then again, that might scare people off.
Plus, I do not want to let everyone know that Sunday, who is threatening to wear a screaming banshee mask, and blogs at WYSIWYG, is bringing cookies for me.
I might have to share.

Love this one!
I'm a celebrity, really
It would be hilarious if anyone thought I was delusional enough to think I'm a celebrity.
But, I love to laugh at myself, so this might be perfect.
And, you'd be able to find me easily.


Don't forget to enter my Color Cookies preschool game giveaway HERE
It ends tomorrow!

Um, you're totally holding out on me...what is this buffalo chicken pasta recipe I've never heard of???? I need to make that immediately. Please share, then I'll post it on my site and give you mad props!

I am so going to Bloggy Boot Camp in Baltimore. I will see you there, and you better be wearing the celebrity shirt. Because I would if I were you. And if you see some girl shaking and staring at you from far away, and then stalking you a bit at the conference, it's me. I have a medical condition. I'm an idiot.

I'm going to jump on the bandwagon and ask for that recipe, too. That sounds good! And there's nothing wrong with licking their plates clean. At least they're eating!

Love the celebrity shirt!

I want the recipe too! We love buffalo chicken at our house and eat pasta way too often, so that meal is something our household needs!

BE HAPPY THAT THEY ARE NOT PICKY!!! If my girls licked their plates, I would a) sing the Hallelujah Chorus and b) put the plates right back in the cabinet. (Just kidding on b, btw. Really.)

And also. I just got my Wii Fit. I am really wanting Just Dance right now. Really. Wanting.

What is it you do at a Bloggy Bootcamp? Will you have to blog non-stop until someone or many drop?

Yeah, I agree Shell, you've been holding back on that recipe, haven't you?

I don't think you're a loser for not being able to whistle but since I can and have no idea of what it feels like not to....heheheheh!
Sophie couldn't whistle forever but she kept at it and now she can pierce dog ears with her whistle:)

I may have to check out that lotion if it smells that good!

I like the tote bag you are going to carry lol!! And the celebrity T-shirt is awesome!!

You are just too funny lol!!

You killed me with the kindergarten tote bag! You go girl! And about the table manners...I would let my kid eat with his hands, with his mouth open and talking at the same time, and then lick the plate, if he would just EAT and stop COMPLAINING about everything I make :)
