Do Good. Be Nice. Have Fun.


March 3rd, 2009

Do Good. Be Nice. Have Fun. I’m liking this website. Both the concept and the fact that you get free car stickers. Bonus.

A Very Good Article.

This was on Jody Landers‘ blog. She’s the one behind the Water for Christmas.

It’s a good read.

As an atheist, I truly believe Africa needs God.

P.S. Jody’s blog is also a good read.

Waiting For Your Love


December 8th, 2008

I’ve been working on a kilt all morning and a chunk of the afternoon and I need a little bit of a break. Nicole did the iPod blog thing and it seemed like a good way to take a break.

What you need: an iPod and a blog.
What you do:
1. Put your iTunes on shuffle.

2. For each question, press the next button to get your answer.

3. YOU MUST WRITE THAT SONG NAME DOWN NO MATTER HOW SILLY IT SOUNDS! (see? it’s such an important rule that the first person to post this needed to yell it.)

4. Make a fun/silly/witty comment on your answer. (Or, just write the song name and leave your readers wondering)

5. Tag 10 friends who might enjoy doing the same as well as the person you got the note from. (Or post it on your blog and see who does it just because you did – kinda like what I did with Nicole.)

The questions (and answers):

  • What is your motto? You Okay Honey? Rent
  • What do your friends think of you? Spring from the sound track of Little Women
  • What do you think about very often? See the Star by Delirious?
  • What is 2+2? Back the Road by Trace
  • What do you think of your best friend? My Desire by Salvador
  • What do you think of the person you like? Whisper Softly by Chasing Furies
  • What is your life story? Joyful Noise/I Will Not Be Silent by David Crowder Band (I’m happy and I talk a lot)
  • What do you want to be when you grow up? Drop the Pilot by Mandy Moore (umm…)
  • What do you think when you see the person you like? Wonderful Christmastime by Jars of Clay (well, we were married at Christmastime)
  • What do your parents think of you? The Fool by U2 (I think I need to talk to my parents)
  • What will they play at your funeral? If I Only Had A Brain by Harry Connick, Jr. (and apparently I also need to talk to the people choosing my music at my funeral – or get some new friends)
  • What is your hobby/interest? Blowin’ In the Wind by Joan Baez (I’m undecided?)
  • What is your biggest secret? Took My Place by Third Day
  • What do you think of your friends? Theme from Summer by All Star United (yeah, summers are always fun)
  • What’s the worst thing that could happen? When It Doesn’t Come Easy by Justin McRoberts (
  • What makes you laugh? Cleaning Windows by Van Morrison (Therapy, I need therapy)
  • What makes you cry? Daisy by Switchfoot (And to confirm I need therapy – windows=laughing, daisies=crying)
  • What scares you the most? Julie by Jacobstone (I don’t know who Julie is but she must be terrifying)
  • If you could go back in time, what would you change? Hold on to Me by Nina Gordon
  • Now for the title of this blog entry…Waiting For Your Love by Justin McRoberts (This seems to fit my current situation…)

Market Place Money: Sean Aiken


August 31st, 2008

This is my favorite Market Place Money Story (of this week). Sean Aiken graduated from college but didn’t know what he wanted to do for a career so he’s trying 52 jobs in 52 weeks. He’s been working different jobs for one week each just to test them out. If the company wants to pay him he insists that they take his salary and make a one time donation to The One Campaign, so basically he’s volunteering for a year. He gets hired through a website he set up and you can also read up on his jobs so far. What I can’t find is how he’s affording to not get paid for a year.

Webby


July 21st, 2008

I’ve added a few links to the side bar in on my blog. You, too, can check out my facebook profile, follow me on twitter, read all the random stuff I’ve saved in del.icio.us and check out my talent for sewing things on flickr. (And just so you know my flickr pictures are only pictures of the things I have made or that I’m currently working on. If you are looking for cute Lexi pictures you need to go here.)

Mamas Like


July 13th, 2008

I stumbled across this website a while ago and it just occurred to me that there are probably a lot of people who read my blog who may be interested in it. It’s called Mamas Like and it’s basically a blog filled with reviews of various kids’/family products. Their guidelines for reviewing something is that a) they need to like the product, b) it’s a small-business venture run by women and more specifically work-at-home moms c) your product is your own unique creation. They have a whole bunch of other guidelines, but those are the biggest.

Here’s my favorite part of the site – almost everything that they review they get an actual sample of and they almost always give it away. To win, all you have to do is leave a comment. I won a gift pack from Sophia Bean a few months ago. And I never win anything.

This Looks Like Fun


June 26th, 2008

The baby’s room is going to have an “underwater” theme to it. And I came across this. I think it would make a pretty cute room. But I think I’d only do it to one wall. A whole room of this may be a little overwhelming.

So, who wants to help do a big kid paint-by-number?

Are you kidding me?


January 28th, 2008

Seriously. Do you really think I spend the last 20 years of my life waiting for this?
