Golden Egg

Thought this was kind of fun..apparently I'm on an Easter kick.
You hide this egg with all of the other eggs you have for the annual Easter Egg hunt.  The lucky person to find the Golden Egg is the ultimate champion...woohoo.

DQ Ice Cream Cake

I decorate cakes at DQ once a week through out the year..give or take some weeks.  So I went today after work to decorate cakes and I just thought I'd toot DQ's horn.  I love their ice cream cakes.  Ever since I was little I never liked regular cake and my Mom had to get me a DQ cake every year for my birthday.  Since my birthday is in July, my party was usually at my Grandfather's house and pool.  One year my Dad left the cake in the cooler instead of taking it inside the house and it melted.  I was a very spoiled and selfish little girl and told him he ruined my birthday.  Let's pretend I was just really mad because I loved DQ cake and was upset. hahah

I had to laugh when I saw these a few months ago.
A friend from the past could have used these when he was pretending that his regular finger was a mustache.  Although it was still extremely hilarious without the actual mustache.

Sweaty Bands

Got this idea from a friend on facebook.  Thanks Amanda!  These look awesome. I need to get some.  I am a victim of the sliding headband when running.  Not fun to have to worry about it sliding out while you are focused on a run.  They are cute too!

Garmin Forerunner

I bought this watch last year after being interested in my brother and Melanie's watches that could track where they ran, their heart rate and a plethora of other stats.
I did really well with going out and jogging every day for a good couple of months...then it got cold.  I'm really looking forward to getting out and using it again.
I enjoy coming back ,plugging it into my computer and it gives me a map of where I ran, the distance, the elevation, the calories burned, my heart rate through out, and I can see how it compares to other days.  I cancelled my gym membership and bought the watch.  Check it out.

Weight Watchers.....again...

I feel like I'm on a never ending cycle of "starting WW".  But honestly, it is the only program that I actually can follow and lose weight.  Of course, I always get off the boat and stop following the program..but when I stick to it I see promising results.  So, this year I have my best friend's wedding in Wisconsin in July and we got our dresses last June...I can now zip the dress but then I can't move.  So, goal #1 is to be able to fit into the dress comfortably.  Goal #2 is a little more ambitious..but we will chat about that after I reach goal #1.  So my "like" of today is Weight Watchers Online.  Check it out. Right now you can join and they waive the joiners fee until 3/12/11.  Its about $18 a month.  All of the tools are online and you can access them from your phone as well. and with the new PointsPlus system, all fruit is FREEEEEEE.

Ruffle Butt!

I didn't have anything for the post I reached out to my fb world.  Asking for a random here it is.  The word was "butt" given to me by my good ole friend Chelsea :)
So..I went on to etsy and typed in butt and this is what I found.
Nothing is cuter than ruffles on a baby's butt!

Gnomeo and Juliet

My Mom and I took my niece to see Gnomeo and Juliet on Sunday.  I thought it was a great movie.  I think I liked it more than my niece.  There were a few little things thrown in that only adults would understand.  Like when the one says, "I'm not illiterate, my parents were married"...there were a few of those ones where they said the wrong word.  It was cute though.  I'd suggest you go see it.

I found this seller on etsy and love her work.  I ordered a custom sign for a friend. 
She is from PA and also a Phillies fan so in addition to her work, I like her as well even though I don't know her.

The Way We Were

I had to do this post.
I'm sitting on the couch with my Mom watching TV and they are discussing Barbara Streisand.  They brought up her movie from 1973 called The Way We Were.  My Mom was like,"ooo I loved that movie. It gets me every time"  So now I'm going to need to watch it.  She said even 30 years later she still gets choked up.  Apparently, they end up not being able to be together.  I was like, "Mom that is like ancient!"

Strap it on

I saw this and thought it was so cute. I love polka dots.  I may need to get one for my best friend's wedding in July so that I will be able to get through the speech.

Baby Blocks

So I can finally post these.  I ordered them personalized for my friend Sarah's baby Elliana who should be coming out to play soon.  I gave her them the other day so now I can share with all.  These are sooo cute.  The seller will personalize them to match the bedding if you send her a picture.  These are just a link to a generic one on her site, not the actual ones I got.

This look yummy and I really like the moustache thing.  I may have to try to make some of my own because these are pretty pricey.

Super Bowl

So it is the Super Bowl...Super Bowl Sunday.  In honor of the super bowl and since my best friend is a Packers fan...I found this cute onesie.  It also reminds me of college when my roommate Erica and I had some kind of funny thing happen relating to cheese and I ended up buying her some cheese magnets and the Cheesehead hat.
No hard feelings to any Steelers fans...I personally could care less who wins.  I only care about the Phillies.

I was so busy this weekend that I missed posting for February 5th. Ah oh well. I guess it's better to live my life then to try to get my post in on time every single day.
I took my niece today for her Valentine's Day pictures at Picture People.  While we were waiting for our appointment which was delayed because they were so busy, we wondered into Hallmark and found a good deal.  Their Zhu zhu pets were on sale and my niece wanted of course I bought them.  I have to tell you. I think I had more fun playing with then her.

Valentine's Dress

I took my niece to the mall tonight so that she could pick out what she wanted to wear for her annual Picture People Valentine's pictures that I take her to get every year.  She was very adamant about what she wanted.  I had to put my foot down on a few things such as the pink cardigan she wanted to go with this pink dress. I was like oh girl that is too much of the same color so we ended up going for the black cardigan.  This dress is so cute and if you go to the store its on sale for $30 instead of the $40 you see it online for.  She also talked me into getting her a Dora backpack at Journeys which I thought was prob like $12 and it ended up being $19!
