What I Got For Christmas!

This seems like a rather materialistic entry/list, but really its a way of showing gratitude for the things that people got me.  And I pretty much made out like a bandit this Christmas. 

-3 seasons of The Girls Next Door (with more to come when they are done being on back-order)
-A Mary-Kate and Ashley package (3 seasons of Full House, a Mary Kate and Ashley Hawaiian party movie, Passport to Paris, How the West Was Fun, and When in Rome) These were from my mum, who started out just getting the Full House seasons, but kept finding more stuff to add on to it.  I am a loser so I think its awesome!
-Gift Cards Galore!  $25 to Joann's, $25 to Borders, $25 to Old Navy, $15 to Hancock Fabrics, plus Michael and I got a $25 Olive Garden card, $25 Regal card, and 2 movie tickets.  I also $25 in cash.  I want to go shopping!!!
-Somewhere In Time - My sister remembered how I always watched that movie.
-Ramona and Beezus - My baby sister and I had been planning on having a movie night when my family came to visit and we were both waiting to watch this together.  She also got me Puffy Cheetos.  Movie night was great!
-Polar Express and Santa Claus is Coming to Town - Yay Christmas Movies!!!
-A really nice shirt from my grandma.
-Flintstones movies - also from my grandma.  These are her old movies that I used to watch (and watch and watch) at her house.  I am stoked.
-A Strawberry Shortcake t-shirt - Where she is wearing her adorable clothes, not her stupid new ones.
-A Christmas cooking set - Mixing bowl, wooden spoon, cookie cutters, cookie mix, and measuring cups.
-Socks, coasters and a handmade bag from my friend.
-Soap and body spray - Michael's cousin always gives everyone presents every year, which is pretty sweet of her.
-Mario 64 for the DS

I think that is everything, but I probably forgot something, which when I figure out what it is will make me feel terrible.  But I am so happy with everything I got, and so appreciative of how many people took the time, effort and money to get me things.


  1. Full House is awesome! One night I was watching an E True Hollywood Story type of show about Mary-Kate and Ashley and I pined for Full House. I went on Amazon and got the complete series box set. And Girls Next Door is a guilty pleasure of mine. :p

    I'm happy to see you had a Merry Christmas. :)

Things That Annoy Infertile Girls (or Maybe Just Me?) - Flashback Friday

This was actually one of my more popular posts when it was first published, but I still thought I would share it again.  Any additions to the post are in pink, as usual :)

Accidental Pregnancies - So I have been trying for years to get pregnant, you go slut around and accidentally get pregnant? Immediate Pregnancies - You quit taking your birth control last month and now you are pregnant? People Who Give You Retarded Advice -           - Just stop trying and you will get pregnant
           - My friend adopted a baby and got pregnant right away, you should do that
           - Get drunk, people always get pregnant when they are drunk (Yes, they do. Because they are
             intoxicated and forget to take precautions.)
Whiny Girls That Pretend They Are Infertile - Trying for 5 months is not suffering from infertility. It takes a year on average to get pregnant.  I get that it might FEEL like infertility but it just isn't.  After YEARS of trying, I can't even remember what tr…

Manipulatives Monday GIVEAWAY from Mother Goose Time - closed

Giveaway closed! Thank you so much to everyone who entered, I really appreciate it!
I have excellent news!  Today is Manipulatives Monday, and Mother Goose Time is giving away a great prize!  One lucky winner will receive TWO bags of manipulatives!  Mother Goose Time will chose the prizes, but I assure you, whatever they send will be a lot of fun for your children!

Manipulatives are a big hit in our house.  Every month we get two new bags of manipulatives, and every month Little Guy asks if he can play with them before the month starts.  The answer is always no, but he tries every month anyways.  During the month we use them for the assigned activities but after we are done with the curriculum, I let him add them to his toy collection.
One thing that is in almost every box is a set of counters.  These are often in the shape of animals, which are Little Guy's favorites.  They are used for a variety of activities, and are always multiple colors, sizes, and/or shapes so they can be …

Review - Seven Everyday Slings

I got this sling because it was free, I only had to pay shipping.  Since I bought it, I have found out that it is VERY easy to find codes for this to be free, and I am pretty sure that if you ever pay full price for one you got duped.

I was SO excited.  I wanted a baby carrier really bad.  I didn't have a baby, but I am always collecting baby things.

In case you were thinking that I only review things that I like, I HATE THIS SLING! 

I have used it with tiny babies, older babies, and toddlers. 

- Adorable, and available in a variety of colors
- Lightweight and compact, you can easily throw it in a diaper bag or purse
- Works from birth - 35 lbs

- Terrifying to use with small babies.  They sink down in it, and its almost impossible to keep them from having their chin tucked to their chest, which is a huge no-no in baby carrying.  Basically when I had Cooper in it as an infant I spent the entire trip to the park making sure he was still breathing, then I started sticki…
