Aloha Friday #12

Kailani at An Island Life does Aloha Friday and here is what she has to say:

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

My question to you is:

Do you do a major spring cleaning each year?

My answer?

Not really, but I need to! And I need advice…where to start? Any tips and tricks?

Flashback Friday/Happy BIrthday

1 year ago today, Max joined our family! He has brought us lots of laughter, love and joy. Happy birthday Max! We love you.

(Never mind how horrible I look in this pic…I just had a baby?? Right??)


I have to admit that I haven’t been a huge fan of Kara DioGuardi since she joined American Idol this season. And I have to admit I don’t have a good reason. I didn’t know much about her. But this afternoon I read she co-wrote the new Pink song, Sober, and I’m in love with that song right now! As I started to research a little more about the songs she’s written and I was blown away. She’s co-written or written a lot of songs I really like. And she can actually sing! Here is a clip of her singing Taking Chances, a song she wrote which was performed by Celine Dion. Pretty surprising. Maybe I’ll listen to her opinion more closely in the coming weeks on Idol. :)

The Potty Dance??

Have you seen this commercial? Did you laugh as hard as I did? My favorite would probably have to be the garbage man…. Oh my.

An Open Letter To Murphy

Dear Murphy -

Someone (besides me) must have really disliked you. Murphy’s Law – anything that can go wrong, will go wrong. Nice namesake. Well, I hate you and your stupid law. I know I shouldn’t have left the water bottle filled with red Crystal Light within sight of an 11 month old. But if it weren’t for your law, my baby would never find a way to obtain the bottle, open it and dump the entire contents on a basket of freshly washed clothes in a matter of seconds. White clothes, for that matter.

Can’t you append your law to give exemptions to frazzled mothers on their last strand of sanity? If I have to scrub poo off the wall again within in the next decade it will be too soon.
