Heads or Tails

This week's theme/prompt is: HEADS - Fool. (Remember, you don't have to use the exact word. You can use any form of it: Foolish, foolhardy, etc.!)

Foolish: WWE (of course) proclaims that Vince McMahon is dead. Due to a firey death in his limo. It was foolish how many people, including the media actually thought this was FOR REAL and not a scripted stunt by the WWE.

Useless baby products........

So we have a post going on at Mommies 'N Babies about Useless Baby Products.....

If you could steer a new mommy away from any product what would it be? What's something you found to be quite useless and a waste of money (or time)??

Its funny how when you become a new mom/first time mom, how many things you THINK you need in order to raise your baby successfully, and then after you wonder why the heck you got so many toys, or this and that item.

So I thought it would be great to do this in a blog form, comment and let everyone know what you think is the most 'Useless Baby Product'.


CRYME TYME IS BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What a GREAT night on RAW.... Cryme Tyme just showed back up... After being released MONTHS ago for some 'stupid s*hit'. WELCOME BACK CRYME TYME!!!
They even get to win their first match back WOOOOOHOOOOOO...
It's quite funny that the guys they got into 'trouble' over (Lance and Cade Murdock) and 'fired' over, were their first match back tonight, kind of funny.

JTG & Shad are BACK!!!!!


WELCOME BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oust® Surface Disinfectant & Air Sanitizer

Recently I did another campaign for BzzAgent for the Oust surface Disinfectant & Air Sanitizer.

At first glance you may just think, oh another air freshener. But this one is a little different.

Oust Surface Disinfectant & Air Sanitizer kills those household germs including bacteria from flu and cold virus' that can stick to those hard surfaces as well as kill the airborn ones that are in the air in your home.
Not only that, but it does kill the odor-causing bacteria that can be found in your home as well. The Oust Surface Disinfectant & Air Sanitizer doesn't just cover the odors up like other 'air fresheners' it actually eliminates them and makes your house smell great.

Another reason I like this product is that its a 2 in 1. Unlike Lysol that can just be used on hard surfaces, and then you'd need another air freshener for making your house smell great, and eliminating those odor-causing bacteria.

You can use Oust Surface Disinfectant & Air Sanitizer on things like toilet seats, counter tops, phones, doorknobs and any other hard surface. It will kill the bacteria you may find in your house including staph and salmonella and viruses.

Using this will keep your home germ free and fresh smelling in no time.

I highly recommend it!

Manic Monday

Manic Monday for March 31, 2008

What is the sexiest part of the body?
Back and Neck. I don't know what it is but I love a man's back, and neck.....Especially if they are very muscular.

If you kissed a frog, who would you like it to turn into? A Batista Look A Like ;)

What do you have stuck up on your refrigerator right now? Word Whomper and it's Magnets, pizza magnets, and some of the girls paintings from yesterday.

Monday Meme: Curious as a Cat

Curious as a Cat

Curious As A Cat

1) If you were to become a prostitute, how much money could you expect to charge per hour?

Hot Damn, if I were a prostitute, how much would I expect to charge an hr, well it would first depend on what I'm doing for that hour.....If its just a simple thing, I think minimum for non intercourse would be $300. Maximum could be up into the thousands ;)

2) With whom do you like to talk on the phone the most?

The only person I really talk on the phone the most with is between my husband, Rodney and my Mom. Now who do I LIKE to talk on the phone the most?? I'd probably say between the two of them, my Mom.

3) If tomorrow you lost the person you love the most, how would your life change?

What a hard question to answer, my life would change dramatically, I don't know if I would even be able to function or deal with my own life after such a tragic loss, I don't even want to think about this question.

4) For what would you most easily be driven to kill?

Murder. If someone killed someone I loved, that would be the time I would be most driven to kill.

5) Show and Tell. What comes to mind first when you see this picture? Or, tell a story if it reminds you of one.

First comes to mind, for some reason, fairies or Tinkerbell. What a pretty pic.

What A Night!!!

What a great Wrestlemania....... Not every match ended as I had thought, or hoped, but it was a great show none the less.

First of all, let me say........ The 24 Man Battle Royal..... The winner of this match would get a chance tonight to go up against Chavo for the ECW Championship. What a quick match....My pick was for Elijah Burke. Now Elijah, he has some explaining to do to me lol first of all, he's gone and changed his 'logo' on his shorts, and gone and changed his colors again. E, how the heck am I supposed to keep your myspace page kickin if you keep changing things without my knowledge lol......
Anyways, Elijah was eliminated 3rd by Kane.....
And well, Kane won the entire match and went on to face Chavo for the ECW championship later that night, the match lasted, oh about 3 minutes, if that, with Kane defeating Chavo.

The matches went as follows:

Now my 2 cents, I am NOT happy with a few of the outcomes. I really wanted to see someone beat the Undertaker. He's now 16-0. I really thought Edge would be the one to do it, unfortunately not.

Money In the Bank Ladder Match, now I understand a bunch of changes probably had to be made, as it was quite apparent that Jeff Hardy probably would have won this match if he had not been suspended. But, CM PUNK????? COME ON NOW!!!!! I am not impressed at all, think of all the other guys who have worked their butts off for this chance, who deserve it way more than CM PUNK, myself, and I'm sure a lot of other fans, are just plain SICK of CM Punk by now.

The match that surprised me the most was the triple threat match. John Cena, Randy Orton and Triple H. I was dead set positive that Triple H would be winning this match, but, we were surprised as Orton pinned Cena to retain the belt. Surprise Surprise.

Now, to the most important match of the night, in my opinion........

Tonight was a major night in wrestling history, it was the end of the Flair era. It was a heartbreaking night for a lot of fans and wrestlers alike. I'm sure everyone who is a die hard wrestling fan shed some tears.

We all knew it was coming, Ric was inducted into the Hall of Fame last night, this was a career threatening match, who better to 'pass the torch to' other than someone who was a life long fan themselves and 'mirrored' themselves almost after you.

Shawn Michaels had probably one of the hardest matches tonight. He defeated and ended Ric Flairs wrestling in ring career. It was a great match, the tear jerking moment, that even put myself into tears, was seeing Shawn Michaels in the ring, in the corner, getting ready to do Sweet Chin Music on Flair, head down, and you could see the tears in his eyes, he looked up, as Ric Flair was getting up from the ring, Ric motioned him to "come on with it"with tears in his own eyes, Shawn Michaels mouthed "I'm sorry, I Love you".

HEART BREAKING!!!!!!!! Even thinking about it, the chills are still there the emotion is still there, it was a sad day in the business, but we all thank Ric Flair for everything he's ever done for this business, for the shows he's put on for us the fans, for never letting us down.

We Love You Ric Flair!!!!! and Thank You!

Tonight's The Night!!!


Wrestlemania 24 is tonight at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando Florida.
The biggest night in Sports Entertainment. The night we all wait for each year.

Tonights matches will include:
BunnyMania Lumberjack Match: Ashley & Maria vs. The Glamazon & Melina

Matches that I'm most looking forward to watching is the Triple Threat Match, Ric Flair vs. Shawn Michaels, SmackDown vs. Raw and the 24 Man Battle Royal. Now depending on the winner of that, will determine if I really care to see the match of who ever faces Chavo for the ECW Championship.

Also Remember, the 24 Man Battle Royal (which Includes my boy, Elijah Burke GO ELIJAH!) will be broadcast on WWE.COM at 6:30pm ET/ 3:30pm PT.

If you could go back in time and witness one event from your family’s history, what would it be? (Be specific). How would this change impact your life? How would this change impact the lives of those close to you?

Hmm, this is a question I've often thought about these past few weeks. Would a decision made in the past, change the future impact of my life, my families life? That's a good question, it could change, but would it be for a better or worse situation than we are in now?
I don't know if there's just one event I'd want to witness, could witnessing an event change the outcome of something? Do you gamble with the fact that if you witness that event, various things may turn for the worse, or may turn out to be the best change for your life.

The only event I would have liked to witness (again) possibly could be witness the thoughts I had in my head when I made my decision to move to the USA and get married instead of getting my husband to move to Canada and get married and start a life there instead. Would we be better off? Be in a better situation, I don't know, it would have impacted our lives greatly, and would probably have changed a lot of the history of our family as we now know it, would we have had the girls already? A house? there's to many questions to think about going back to change history.

I think I'll pass.

Mommies United Tea Party

Mommies United is having a Tea Party. Come on out and join us!!!

A tea party isn't a tea party without some great recipes. Here's what I'd include.

Earl Grey Tea Madeleines with Honey
(courtesy of Bon Appétit )


5 tablespoons unsalted butter plus additional for molds, room temperature
2 tablespoons loose tea or tea from 2 tea bags (preferably Earl Grey)

3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Pinch of salt
2 large eggs
1/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon (packed) finely grated lemon peel


Line small sieve with 2 layers of damp cheesecloth and set sieve over small bowl. Melt 5 tablespoons butter in saucepan over low heat. Mix in tea. Let stand 10 minutes, then pour into sieve. Twist cheesecloth tightly around tea mixture, releasing tea-flavored butter into bowl.

Sift flour, baking powder, and salt into medium bowl. Using electric mixer, beat eggs and sugar in large bowl until thick, about 4 minutes. Add honey, vanilla, and lemon peel; beat 1 minute longer. Gently fold in dry ingredients, then tea-flavored butter. Press plastic wrap onto surface of batter; chill batter at least 3 hours and up to 1 day.

Position rack in center of oven and preheat to 400°F. Brush twelve 3x2-inch madeleine molds with butter. Dust with flour; tap out excess. Place pan on baking sheet. Drop 1 scant tablespoon batter into each mold (batter will spread while baking, filling molds completely).

Bake madeleines until golden and tester inserted into center comes out clean, about 10 minutes. Sharply rap pan on work surface to loosen madeleines, then turn out onto rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Baking tip: Silicone madeleine molds need no buttering amd flouring — and their flexibility makes unmolding a cinch (you can actually turn them inside out). Put the mold on a baking sheet so that it will be easy to get the flexible pan in and out of the oven.
