Love Your Legos!

If you've Googled at all today, you probably already know that Lego is having its 50th birthday today! Well, that's cause for celebration in our house!! What better reason to go buy some Legos?! (Please Mom, can we?)

Anyway, thought you might like to buy some Legos of your own that WOULDN'T get sucked up in the vaccuum!
Hope your day was great!

Well since it's next to impossible to get a treasury on Etsy, and even if I COULD get one, I don't even think I know HOW....
Here's my little tribute to everyone's favorite food. (Well ok, not EVERYONE'S favorite....but it's pretty popular at our house!) and a salute to the Etsy sellers who "sling" it! :-)

Hope your day is like....BACON!

I'm coming to you cordless!
My very special old computer mouse conked out (too much ZUMA!?!) dear husband hooked up a cordless that we had. Now....I don't mean to complain, but UGH! I hate change when it comes to things I have to use every day--often for hours a day! This mouse is HUGE! I drawfs my old IBM mouse and takes up my whole hand! My IBM mouse had a button in the center....this new-fangled cordless mouse has a WHEEL. I understand that wheels are for mice, I just think that mice with wheels belong in CAGES! haha. That's a joke---get it?
Nothing much else to say I guess. I've reduced the page numbers archived on this front Blog page so you will have to click back if you want to see some past posts. I did that so you could get to the bottom faster to see the larger version of my Etsy mini of favorites. Cool huh?
I'll be back later to pout some more when my dear husband hooks up the HUGE cordless keyboard that all the bells and whistles. Geeze. :-)

My two youngest children have been up since 6:30. Quentin (7) has informed me that he's going to dump out the Lego box (all 35 gallons!) so he can make something really "COOL" (Maybe even something that I can put on You Tube!). You know what happens when the 7 year old dumps out the Legos though right? The 5 year-old (Owen) is going to need to dump out the 35 gallons of GEOTRAX to go with it.
We're in for a long day folks.
I haven't even made breakfast yet! I wish there was some place that would deliver bacon. :-)
I don't really have a whole lot else to say so I'll leave you with that thought.
Bacon. ha

Well, it's Saturday. Not a whole lot to say about that except that it's COLD. Freezing cold!!!
The kids have Monday and Tuesday off from school and I'm sorry, but I'm not looking forward to that! :-)
I changed my top favorites (scroll down and look at the Etsy mini) to reflect some rainbow items. LOOK--one even has SKITTLES!!! Wow. They should make chocolate covered Skittles. Chocolate covered skittle BEADS. That ironed and did laundry. Wow. That would be cool. :-)
Sorry, I'm in one of those moods. Actually this is just my personality--see why I don't BLOG more?
Ok, I have to go help Owen (5) find R2-D2.....he seems to be lost in "la-la Land" as Grandma Lorna would say!
I'll talk to you soon. In the meantime, Quentin (7) thinks you should check out Brick Arms . ??? It's a Lego thing.

Monday Monday--Actually it's TUESDAY!

Oh good grief! You'd think I could come up with SOMETHING at least once a week wouldn't you???

Those clever people on the Etsy forums were talking about this site that you just put your URL into the "search" field and it'll show you wherever your site might be listed or linked. It's kind of like Googling yourself...but if you have a site or blog or know someone who's kind of interesting. You can go here:

It's also fun to see how "popular" your friends are--you can put their links in as well.
As if you didn't have anything better to do huh?
Well, I hear ya. I went to bed at 7 and was up at 1. It's now almost 3am and I've yet to make any beads I go.

I'll leave you with an updated UPCOMING EVENT list. If you're in the area, would love to see you! Have a great Tuesday!

Uncle Jay

WELL, now that the caucuses are over, you may be asking yourself--WHAT'S NEXT!?
Well, apparently--SUPER DUPER TUESDAY! All I could think of was "Fat Tuesday" (which we all know ISN'T a reference to primary voting) so I was trying to find some info online and I came up with a site where someone called it "SUPER DUPER TUESDAY"! I about died.
Yeah, well anyway....if you're not into politics (I'm really not) and you don't understand most of the news you hear (and sometimes I don't) you mind find that UNCLE JAY can help you understand things a little better. My husband turned me on to him yesterday (Uncle Jay videos I mean...) and I just love them. There are 50 of them so, plan your time accordingly-ha!

I just checked back here and for SOME reason, the You Tube link isn't working for me. Maybe it's just my computer though.
Either way, here's the link to Uncle Jay's actual site in case I've got your curiosity up!
Uncle Jay's Website! !!

That's all I have for now. I woke up to a REALLY bad dream at 4 this morning. It's almost 5:30 now and I've had some coffee and I think I'll go shower. Hell, I may even shave! :-) Have a great weekend!
