OK this show is my latest addiction. If you don't know what Glee is, leave this blog immediately and go watch episodes of it online. I can't stop watching it! I had heard great things about it, but I just didn't have time to add another TV show to my long list of reality show addictions. Now that most shows are over and everything is reruns, I decided to watch an episode. Love at first watch! I watched all the episodes available on and now I am catching up on reruns on Wednesday nights. Two episodes every Wednesday! If you are thinking I have a problem, you are correct and I am well aware of it. I am a TV addict, but I do it late at night when no one is watching. That makes it OK, right? Anyway, it is a great show. It has the high school drama story line, quirky funny characters and great music and singing. I suggest you check it out if you haven't already.

Funnel Cake Sticks

I can feel my arteries clogging and my thighs expanding just thinking of these, but they sure do sound good. They are the newest item at Burger King. I've only heard about them in one commerical so I thought I'd share. Who doesn't love a good greasy funnel cake?! Now you can enjoy the yummy treat without having to walk by a carny yelling, "Hey lady lady lady, pretty lady, stop lady lady. Come play. Two tries only $25. Everyone's a winner. Come back lady lady lady."

Giveaway Tuesday!

Just kidding! No giveaways today. Taking a little holiday break.

Instead, I will share a Christmas miracle with you... My 2 1/2 year old slept until 8:15 today. EIGHT FIFTEEN! She always wakes up between 6:45 and 7:30. I probably haven't slept past 8:00 in 2 1/2 years. The joy is unexplainable, but let me try. It's like sitting in Johnny Depp's lap while it is raining cupcakes.

Girl's Night!

Be sure to schedule a girl's night out soon! It could keep you healthy and make you live longer! Make sure to tell your husband that too on your way out. Seriously though, I just read in a magazine that researchers in England and Australia reviewed studies on being social and they confirmed that it makes you happier, boosts your memory, and can improve recovery from illness or stroke. They said that interacting with a group is important for mental functioning, health, and well-being. So call your girlfriends and plan a night out, quick! Your life depends on it!

I recently received the jacket below as a gift. Mine is black and it is so cute. It is casual enough to be worn like a hoodie but can be dressed up too. I love it. It was purchased in Israel and I had never heard of S-Wear before, so I went to the website to see what else they had. Their stuff is great! They carry really cute solid basic items, and the quality of the jacket I received is excellent. I am about to order a few more things. Check out their site.


Have you ever thought about adopting a family this holiday season? Money may be tight right now, but if you are able to, it is such a wonderful thing to do. Many families are not even able to buy presents for their children. If you live in Houston, you can sponsor a family through Houston Children's Charity. The form and info are here. If you do not live in Houston, do an internet search to find an organization in your area.

Dum Dum!

No, not you. The candy! My daughter loves Dum Dums. She received many in her trick or treat basket over the weekend. Whenever we open one for her to eat, she always asks "What flavor?" I am always stumped when we get the one that says Mystery Flavor, so I usually just make something up. Mystery Flavor has always freaked me out a little bit. What is it? Some gross left over flavor? Will it taste like chicken fried steak or broccoli? Mystery just sounds like it equals gross. Well today I saw an article on AOL explaining the Mystery Flavor. Apparently the Dum Dum machines run continuously, so when they are changing from one flavor to another there is always a batch that is a mixture of two flavors. That's not so bad! So if you get a Mystery Flavor Dum Dum, it just means it is a mixture of two of their flavors. It won't taste like chicken fried steak, though a couple of my husband's friends would probably like that.
