Have YOU Had Your Fill?

Another Spoke in the Wheel, By Black Label Society. 
Lord, I Question Whether I've had my fill 
Lord, I Question whether I can take much more 
you may laugh as I lay here bleeding 
no more afters or befores 

Some day you'll know just how I feel 
you left me there twice before 
Some day you'll know just how it feels 
shattered, cast aside, stripped of your pride 
like you were never nothing special 
made you feel like another spoke in the wheel 

so you say im just another dollar 
so you say I'm just another day yeah 
once my blood was strong but now its jaded and its thin 
unlike you I can still tell right from wrong
some day you'll know just how it feels 
while you left me there twice before 
some day you'll know just how it feels 
shattered, cast aside, stripped of your pride 
like you were never nothing special 
made you feel like another spoke in the wheel 

some day you'll know just how it feels 
while you left me there twice before 
some day you'll know just how it feels 
shattered, cast aside, stripped of your pride 
like you were never nothing special 
made you feel like another spoke in the wheel

November 9th, 2011 GOP Debate Recap

If you're anything like me, you like to wait 'til the next day to watch the debate - 1) because it makes the morning at work go by quickly & 2) It's more fun to read headlines before you watch the debate - it's comical, to say the least. 

Who's your favorite?

How To Display Your Kids (MANY, MANY) Art Projects

I have a crafty child that brings home LOTS of art work from "school". Mostly these go on the fridge until my sweet cheeks decides to take said art work off the fridge and de-sticker the art work - or - rip it to pieces - whatever the case may be. 
So these art pieces have been ending up in a designated bin in our spare room. Boring. 

I need a solution. An art-work solution. A way to display these CUTE pieces of work. 

Yep. Let's string it! 

I also found some adorable clothespins on Etsy (my go-to job for every idea) 

Can't wait to display her art work. She really is that talented but I'm biased. 

Pins can be found HERE

Wedding Inspiration

Now that I'm officially (after 8years of relationship bliss) engaged - I can start getting inspired for our wedding.
Is this not the most beautiful thing you've ever seen?

I'd have to opt to be barefoot if I walk down this rose aisle.

A Bone To Pick

I always have several "bones" to pick, but not always vocal about them.

What's your take on privacy at this day in age?

EVERYTHING as we know it is public knowledge - what with the social networks, google, blogs - pretty much everything under the sun. So why do people get so tangled in a knot once someone "spies" on your life under those circumstances? I mean, it IS 2011. It IS public knowledge unless you specify otherwise. Correct? Or no?
My rule of thumb (a.k.a. me: bitching?) :
If you do not want something seen or heard ; don't post!  (This is major commonsense : DUH)
If you want something seen or heard or talked about, then obviously you are hungry for attention or like the attention - so stop bitching about it.

If you are an open book - expect to BE an open book.

Modesty and Conservatism is a hard thing to adhere by and it takes practice.

Act your age, not your shoe size. If you want to be seen, be seen. If you don't - make your life private - completely.

Here's a couple of hints on how to simplify or keep your life private:

Facebook - this is a no-brainer - status messages say A LOT about you. And photos, well, they clearly speak for themselves. If you had a photo shoot done that you don't want certain people to see - go private! Or don't post - or keep them to whoever they were intended to. Its not that hard. If you have small children that you don't want exposed to EVERYONE on your friends or anyone on the Internet - go private!
Certain things should be kept private, ie: your child's pictures, your sister/brothers child's pictures, half naked pictures, etc.
go to privacy settings in facebook > either customize your settings on who sees your profile or select "friends only" - BOOM. Done.

Google:  Well, this is still a little disturbing - if you enter your name in the search box - your world IS an open book - you can basically get ANY. THING. online these days.
Here's a solution: go to:  and it gives some good info on how to protect yourself.

Blogging: Well, you're screwed here. If you want write your life in an online book ( of sorts ) - please be prepared for people to JUDGE. For people to DISAGREE with your opinions. And, to ultimately be HATED. Sorry, it's just the fact of life.  Rule: If you don't want something to be seen, don't post. Again, DUH.

And there's my vent for this Friday.
To be an open book or not to be an open book - this is your discretion.

Enjoy your weekend!

A Recommendation For New MaMa's

I just heard a blurp on the radio about new babies & strollers and it was SO right on I had to post something about it.

I was so concerned when I first started to shop for Lucy while I was pregnant that I HAD TO HAVE a huge, chunky, travel system stroller. (You know, the one that the infant carseat fits into?)
Hunk of Junk. Waste of Money. It's in the trash now.

My first mistake: I didn't do my research.
My second mistake: I bought a 'Baby Trend' stroller (hunk-o-junk)
My third mistake: I didn't keep the jogging stroller my in-laws got me (FAIL)

What I'm recommending to the new mommies - soon to be new mommies -  is...don't waste your money on that beautiful carseat-stroller combo that you've been eyeing in 'babies r us'
Get a practical, cheap, umbrella stroller.

Our best buy:

If you must buy that overly priced travel system, go with:

(the above travel system got the best reviews)

Recipe Binder

One of things I want to do for my sister, as she becomes a wife, is a recipe binder.

I found this adorable creation at 'A Bowl Full Of Lemons' that is giving me inspiration to make this happen as one of her gifts.

Check out the rest of the recipe book she created by click HERE.

Now I have to go email all 100 of my family members for their recipes! Fun Fun!

All Things Weddings: Bridal Shower Idea

Since my sister, Ellie, is getting married - my brain is a funnel of wedding ideas.
Some of these I share with her, some I don't because I don't want to be that "idea girl / sister" and be annoying.

However, the bridal shower is something I can have input on and I stumbled upon this CUTE idea for a party - any party.

Wedding Addiction / Ellie's Wedding

It's been months since my future Bro in Law, Mike asked my oldest sister, Ellie to marry him.

Obviously, she said yes...

Last weekend - she said 'YES to the DRESS!'

Unfortunately I was unable to be there for that but I've been doing alot of wedding window shopping - mainly just for fun because Mikey and Ellie's wedding is set to be in Vegas *totally them*. Mike and Ellie are a simple couple with simple tastes. 

I ran across this beauty while window shopping and decided it was SO my sister...elegant and simple (and beautiful):

Sigh - isn't it a beauty???

I'm sure this won't be the last post until the wedding....I'm addicted!
