I received my new flip video today and I’ve had a blast playing with it! It is so easy to use! The kids loved “making movies” for me. Here’s Landon showing how cultured he is by reciting a lovely poem entitled, The Goops. He learned this in first grade from his very cultured teacher, my mother.

My family has an absolute favorite car game. It’s our own…
Someone names a theme, phrase, noun, etc. and the rest of the people in the van have to come up with a song that goes with it. It amazes my kids the songs my husband and I know. Shiloh was particularly impressed this evening when I could sing a song that had sno-cone in it.
Well, we fogged up the windows in my old Chevy
I was willing but she wasn’t ready
So I settled for a burger and a grape sno-cone
Dropped her off early but I didn’t go home
Down by the river on a Friday night
A pyramid of cans in the pale moonlight
Talking ’bout cars and dreaming ’bout women
Never had a plan, just living for the minute
Yeah, way down yonder on the Chattahoochie
Never knew how much that muddy water meant to me
But I learned how to swim and I learned who I was
A lot about living and a little ’bout love
Anyway, it’s a blast to see what people can come up with.
Anyone want to play?
Here’s the deal. I’m going to make a list, I want you to come up with a song (or phrase from a song) with that word or phrase.
I’m quite anxious to see what you come up with. Feel free to leave your answers in the comments and if you like, post a list for me!

Last Sunday was my 30th birthday. I really thought about how important that birthday sounds, and how I really should post something profound.
I decided the best thing I can do is give out some free advice. Something I discovered, for the first time, on my 30th birthday. A lesson it took me 30 years to learn. Are you ready? Here it is…
If you feel like you are lacking attention, or need people to notice you, but don’t know what to do, I have the solution. No more will you feel like *Mr. Cellophane(skip to 5:12).
Walk around the French Quarter, in New Orleans, on a game day, wearing a Tony Parker jersey. It helps if there are three others with you wearing Manu Ginobli, David Robinson, and Tim Duncan jerseys. You will be noticed. A lot.
So, there’s my sage advice. Don’t expect anymore until my 60th birthday.
Oh, did you catch that? I went to my first Spurs game for my birthday!! Woohoo! (Thank you Mom and Dad!)
Look…here are my guys.
Be still my beating heart. If I were to have star crushes, it would be on these sweaty guys!
and (watch out Eva) Tony
Okay, so I don’t really have crushes on these guys…but I do love me some Spurs. It was a blast, except for the losing part. And it was fun to cause a bit of a sensation in NOLA! By the way NOLA friends, I’ll be visiting again soon for Jazz Fest. Hopefully, I won’t have to worry about being tarred and feathered!
*(Just a note about my link above, I couldn’t find Ben Vereen doing Mr. Cellophane anywhere except in the middle of a Muppet Show. Once you’ve heard Ben Vereen do this song, no one else’s version will do…Chicago or no Chicago. Ben Vereen is the man.)
Isn’t it disappointing to wake up from really, really great dreams?
Like dreams where you own a dress that will magically make you look like Audrey Hepburn?
Then you wake up and realize that nothing you ever own could make you look like Audrey Hepburn? And it’s cold and you’re running late for work.
Kinda makes you want to go back to bed.
I have weird dreams…
But good dreams…while they last.
Okay, this is funny guys! Enjoy!
HT: Stand Firm
At 9:15 on Saturday evening, knowing I have to get up and go to church in the morning, and that at least one kid, and myself still need baths, this question runs through my mind.
Is it too late to watch Pride and Prejudice?
I’m afraid I know the answer. I’m afraid it’s not the smart choice.
What would you do?
Listen to The Red Hot Chili Peppers of course.
I love all of you
Hurt by the cold
So hard and lonely too
When you don’t know yourself
I know. I’m creepy.
Maybe I can win better music? Like this?
Shannon is giving away 20.
What do you do when you are up too late?
Because I’m feeling silly. And sunburned.
Dear aloe vera
you make my burn feel better
you are my good friend.
Aren’t I the aspiring artistic type?
(This post was inspired by my deep thoughts of gratefulness directed towards my bottle of aloe vera.)
And well, since you see from my previous post, I have no will power to keep from jumping on the bandwagon. Well, in some instances, anyway.
And this was fun.
Everything you need to know about me…
- Carnivorous animals will not eat another animal that has been hit by Bethany.
- The colour of Bethany is no indication of her spiciness, but size usually is!
- Bethany is 984 feet tall.
- Influenza got its name because people believed the disease was caused by the evil “influence” of Bethany!
- Bethany is picked, sorted and packed entirely in the field!
- The military salute is a motion that evolved from medieval times, when knights in armour raised their visors to reveal Bethany.
- Bethany has little need for water and is capable of going for months without drinking at all!
- Over 46,000 pieces of Bethany float on every square mile of ocean.
- Bethany does not have toes.
- Bethany can live for up to a week without a head!
Now aren’t you glad you read that? I for one am relieved to know I can live, up to a week, without a head and can go for months without water (which is useful if you don’t have a head.) I’m surely going to have to stop paying for pedicures though, if I don’t have any toes!
