Another Swap from Mamarazzi? Awesome!

June 5, 2009



I’m lucky enough to participate in another Mamarazzi swap.  This time it’s Red White and Blue.

Can’t wait to get my swap partner and make a new bloggie friend!  Thanks Mamarazzi… you’re the best!


Here’s the Goods – Thanks, Joy!

May 29, 2009

As promised (only a day later), here’s the awesome goodies I got from Joy.



Joy sent so much good stuff, I couldn’t fit it all in one picture.  And the hankies, ribbons, lace & buttons are a treasure.  My favorite was the pink and green ribbon with two clear jewels.  Absolutely adorable!

Here’s a list of the goodies she sent:

  • Nail Color Pen – never had one of these… can’t wait to use it!
  • Burt’s Bees lip balm, cuticle cream, hand salve and Res-Q Ointment… I sent some Burt’s Bees to Joy… turns out we have the same tastes!
  • Packet of Wildflowers… I’ll plant these this weekend!
  • Jolly Time Popcorn… single serving, so no sharing!
  • Forever Fig eye shadow… yum!  Loving this color!
  • Lavender, Green Tea & Geranium relaxing lotion… mmm… I’m putting this on my dry elbows and taking a nice nap!
  • Rimmel Nail Polish in Posh Trash… this will look POSH on my toes!
  • Home Sweet Home Yankee Candle… sooo smelly good.
  • Bath & Body Works Japanese Cherry Blossom lotion… husband likey-likey!  Me too!
  • And… get this… my very own artist trading card… made by JOY!  She’s so creative.

Joy included little notes with each item telling me why she liked each of the things she chose.  I loved all of her wrapping with the hankies and ribbon.

Thanks, Joy!  And thanks to Mamarazzi for hosting this blog swap!


Mamarazzi’s Favorite Things Swap – The Box Has Arrived!!

May 28, 2009

I got my box from Joy today.  I loved everything!  Pictures to come later today. 

Paige has moved…

May 13, 2009

My friend Matt has a friend named Paige.  I guess you could say Paige is my friend, too, but for some reason I have to qualify my friendship by explaining that I met her thru Matt.  Don’t know why…

Anyway, Paige has started a new blog and it’s great.  Check her out at

She recently worked on the movie “The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia”, produced by the famous (or infamous) Johnny Knoxville of MTV. 

Paige loves to bake and seems to have a recent fascination with cupcakes.  I found some cupcake blogs from Paige’s old blog and they’re awesome.  My fave is Cupcakes Take the Cake.

Check out Paige’s new blog.  Her second entry is totally hilarious!

Speeding through life? Not so much…

I was just sitting at my computer at work, surfing the internet and thinking to myself, “I should have a seatbelt on.”  This had nothing to do with the internet, just a sudden realization that I wasn’t wearing a seatbelt, but felt like I should be.
