Confession 27 - Preggers? No not me!

Today I'm confessing about secretly still wanting another baby. I know, my husband says the shop is closed, and my 40th Birthday is closely approaching. Not to mention, my girls are at an age right now that is so nice, no diapers, no bottles, no tantrums, no throw your self on the floor, (a Momma can dream right?) no stroller at Disneyland, no huge carseats..... But I miss the smell of a new born baby, and kissing one, and dressing one and goo goo gooing at one. So when I saw this photo shoot on BuzzFeed, it got me all tingly.  I wish I was this creative years ago. Anyone out there preggers and can use one of these ideas?

And OMG, if you are overwhelmed this week like me and need a good LOL - LMFAO (especially my peeps behind the gates here with minimum day all week) it's a must to check these pics out! An awesome quick brain break and pick me up!

I can live vicariously through you!

Check them out.  My favorite is the "Prego" Pasta Sauce... Classic!

Confession 26 - Overachievers are Obnoxious!

Hi everyone! Thanks for coming by today to read my latest confession. Today's post is a little touchy, and well, I hope it solicits a lot comments and controversy! There I go again, trying to relive my younger years (ya with the controversy!). Anyways, I ran across this OC gal's blog the other day and well, I can totally relate. So without further ado, read the article below, because I cannot write like this lady does {{swoon}} and she sums it up to a "T".
Let's Bring the Holidays Down a Notch

I mean, yes, I can be the creative overachiever sometimes trying to out do my previous year and trying to do the utmost cutest, most trendy creative thing. But really, I'm not in it to show anyone up.  I honestly enjoy doing creative things, its in my DNA. But, I can totally see Rage Against the Minivan's take on it. And well, I like her snarky article too! Go back and make sure you read some of the comments. They are hilarious!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you liked me latest confession!

Confession 25 - I love Fridays!

Today I'm confessing about my love for Fridays! It's so simple right? But I feel myself overwhelmed with this care free feeling on Fridays. No homework, no school the next day and usually family pizza night with a Redbox rental. {{Bliss}} right?

Who else is in love with Fridays?

Confession 24 - Pinterest Fails = Laughing = Therapy for the Soul

Okay, so today's confession is about a little area of Pinterest that has been popping up in droves. Have you checked it out? Well if you haven't and want a good laugh, and a great escape, check it out.

For those of you that don't know what Pinterest is, it's basically a huge bulletin board.  Remember 5-10 years ago,  when you would read an actually paper magazine, find something you liked, rip it out, and then tack it to your bulletin board? Well, Pinterest took that concept and made it virtual  It also added the social element to it, so you can see what your friends are pinning on their boards, actresses, bloggers, basically anyone.  I'm forewarning you though, if you go on, you will not be able to stop looking! Some of my favorite things to look at are craft items, with home decor coming in second, and those funny and sometimes inspirational quotes third.   Take a peek and let me know your thoughts if you are a novice.  You can quickly connect to me by clicking on the right button at the top of my page.  Comment below and let me know you are following me, and I will follow you!

Okay, so onto the subject at hand... now that you know what Pinterest is.  For you Pinterest experts, go on and type Pinterest Fails into the search box and see what you find.  OMG, I can't stop laughing when I do this. My BFF and I spent an hour or so over lunch a week ago pulling up the funniest ones and laughing our butts off! Laughing is such good therapy for the soul.

Here are some of my favorites.  I see I need to get out of my comfort zone and try a "Pin" or two I know I'm going to fail at and then blog about it and pin it... !  My problem is that I won't try a pin that I think I will fail at... I know lame right? I need to change that and give back to the community!

Confession 23 - Beatles Love Cirque de Soleil Show

Hi everyone! Today I'm confessing about an out of body experience I had watching the acclaimed Cirque de Soleil Show, Beatles Love. Yes, you heard that right! I know, "what happens in Vegas is suppose to STAY in Vegas", but I had such a great time and experience this past weekend,  I just had to share, {squeal}  I highly recommend a trip to Vegas just to see this show, it really is that awesome!

I'm a huge Beatles Fan (I know another confession right?) and watching this show brought back all the memories from my teenage years ... see a trend?  I remember listening to The Beatles on multiple road-trips and my senior trip to Europe. Any Beatles lovers know that listening to their music transports you back to the times when you first experienced it.

The music in the show isn't live like all the other Cirque shows, but is newly remastered, and wow, they did such an awesome job! The show director is French and translates that beautiful musical sense that other French musicals have.  I found so many similarities with this show's tone and feel as I did with Les Miserables.  Over $100  million dollars went into making the stage, and man oh man is it {{amazing}}. So much movement it brought to the show.  We sat higher up, and this would have not been so fun with most other shows, but for this show it was just perfect! I truly believe there was not one bad seat in the house!

I sat in awe watching the dancers, listening to the music and watching a story-line that started back in the World War II era. I began to reflect in the shock and awe of realizing what awesome songwriters and musicians The Beatles were.  Some of my favorite songs were Blackbird and Sgt.Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band along with Hey Jude and My Guitar Gently Weeps.

And... that's all I have to say, I'm nearly speechless.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you liked my latest confession!

Confession 22 - Ringya App - A way to organize phone lists

Today I'm confessing about one of my favorite phone list organizing apps... Ringya {{squeal}}. It is one of my favorite "sanity" apps and I've only been using it for about 3 months! What is it? Well it allows you to take a photo of any phone list spreadsheet (yes you heard that right, you just take a photo) and then send it off within your Ringya app to the gurus there, some minutes later (usually about 30 for me) you get an alert on your phone through the app that your new phone list is ready! It takes all the information and creates an individual contact for each person on the spreadsheet. It will even categorize the list for you, by heading. So the class list for my daughter's class is broken down by student, mom, and dad.  I have at my finger tips, phone numbers, addresses and names! It's just genius! Don't believe me? Check the video out below:
 A new feature just released is group text and email. So if I need to rapidly send out a message to all the neighbors on my block, I hit group message and bam, same message to all neighbors in one action!  How cool is that?

So if you are tired of constantly looking for a spreadsheet on your messy desk or searching for hours through emails up on emails, download this app. You will not be disappointed! If not for anything, just to see the beauty in the conversion of a spreadsheet into contacts... it's absolutely beautiful!

Now...  an app needs to be created that automatically puts my daughter's softball game schedule into my google calendar from a spreadsheet, now that would make me do the "Happy Dance" like a million times!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you liked my latest confession!
