~I think I have mentioned it before (or not?), but I want to start making my own food for WB. Where do I begin? I don’t want a fancy baby food maker. I have a food processor and a mini food processor, as well as, every other kitchen appliance known to man. Do I just throw veggies in the food processor and that’s that? Seems too easy? And what did you store them in? Ice cube trays or what? Something tells me I am making this harder than it is?
~If I see one more post about how amazing some store or some product or whatever if that is totally sponsored, but makes no mention of it, I am going to flip my lid. In the comments on one popular blog (who did a shopping post of all the great “deals” that were out there), someone actually said “they should pay you for this”. Umm, they you do moron.
~I have been putting together sort of a family binder (kinda like these pins) just in case we were to ever need it. You just never know. And while I have all my pictures saved and backed up and backed up again, I still get worried. Living things aside, I think I could replace pretty much everything else I own except for pictures. Do they still have safe deposit boxes at the bank? I can’t see storing all of my pictures online somewhere, but throwing a hard drive with them all in on it in a safe place seems reasonable.
~Sort of on that note, has anyone ever taken pictures all of their kids artwork and turned it into a book? Anyone? Sort of like this, but I would probably do it myself since I am guessing it would be way cheaper. I am running out of space to store 4 years of school projects and I know this is only the start. And don’t tell me to just save the “best” ones. They are ALL the best ;).
~I got an e-mail to try Progressive Snapshot (#TrySnapshot) and I thought heck, why not? A lot of the stuff I get asked to review is kind of meh, but this seemed fun. Plus, it came with a bunch of hysterical Flo swag that I plan to make B model for me for a picture. So anyways, we hooked it up to the car right away. B drove it yesterday and said it beeps at all the time when he brakes (it beeps if you brake too hard / fast). I was cracking up. Pretty sure I already love it. But from the sounds of it, it won’t be saving us any money. BAHAHA. Oh, and I get to give away some Flo swag to you all too. So stay tuned for a giveaway. Maybe that could be your Halloween costume??
~I was on Pinterest last night and came across a pin about Taylor Morris, a 23 year-old Navy EOD (Explosive Ordinance Disposal) Tech. I’ve met a few EOD guys and they are pretty bad a**. He lost both arms and both legs while serving in Afghanistan earlier this year when he stepped on an IED. And now? He’s walking. And swimming. And cooking. After only a few months. Amazing. He’s a true hero. TheChive (a website I knew nothing about before this) did a story on him back in May (a few weeks after it happened) and their readers raised $250,000 so that he can buy a house by the lake with his girlfriend (who basically hasn’t left his side). I can only hope that donations continue to pour in for him. If the lady on the school bus who cried because kids were making fun of her got over half a million in donations, then his guy should get trillions!
I put him last for a reason. What could possibly follow him??
