Dear So-and-So #1

Dear Idiot Parked Behind Me In The Elementary School Parking Lot -

I need to get out of my parking spot, but you are parked behind me. Perpendicularly. I asked once nicely and I won’t do it again. Get out of my way. Before I ram into you just like the Burger King commercial. And before I end up on the Channel 5 news with PTA Mom Gone Wild stamped across my forehead.

Dear Diet Dr Pepper -

I’m so sorry I’ve been neglecting you. It’s not you, it’s me. Maybe someday we can be together again.

XOXO *Cam*


Dear Harold -

I’m too old to get zits your size. Seriously. There is only so much makeup can do. So give into the Neutrogena Rapid Clear gel and get off of my chin.

Godspeed, C.


Dear Lady In The Car Next To Me On The Freeway -

Yes, I dance and sing in the car. Don’t you? Quit looking at me like that.

Love, Me


Dear Kat -

Thanks for thinking of such a fun blogging idea! It gives me a chance to say all the things I wish I could really say. I love it and can’t wait to participate again!


Ready For Spring

It’s Groundhog Day today. Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow, which means 6 more weeks of winter. Phil is by far the most famous of Groundhogs, but there are lots of other groundhogs around the country that didn’t see their shadow. Who made Phil the King of the Groundhogs anyway? I choose General Beauregard Lee as my 2010 groundhog of choice. Mostly because I like his name. Out of 11 groundhogs, 6 predict an early spring, 5 predict more winter. I see the glass as half full today. See ya Winter!

Early Spring                                        Jimmy the Groundhog                  Sun Prairie, Wisconsin
Early Spring                                        General Beauregard Lee               Snellville, Georgia
6 More Weeks of Winter                 Malverne Mel                                   Malverne, New York
Early Spring                                        Staten Island Chuck                       Staten Island (New York City)
Early Spring                                        Woodstock Willie                            Woodstock, Illinois
6 more weeks of winter                  Wiarton Willie                                   Wiarton, Ontario

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.

On All Fours

Stolen (by invitation of course!) from Jenni at Jiggety Jigg!

Four Places I go over and over again:

1. Bug’s Elementary School
2. Wal-Mart
3. My laundry room
4. My pantry – usually for some piece and quiet. The kids never think to look there!

Four People who email me regularly:

1. My hubby
2. Yoga for Every Body – Although I have yet to try one of their great new yoga poses….
3. Facebook – which includes a lot of people. Don’t you just love Facebook??
4. Pottery Barn – can’t afford anything in the catalog, but still read it faithfully

Four of my favorite Places to eat (apart from home):

1. Macaroni Grill – I’ve ordered the same thing for years, Penne Rustica with a raspberry Italian soda.
2. Happy Sumo
3. Ruby River – I enjoy it even more because my hubby is so happy there!
4. Wendy’s – because 99 cent deliciousness from my car window is just what I need sometimes!

Four places I’d rather be now:

1. Villa Pelicano – Cabo San Lucas. Greatest. Vacation. Ever.
2. Bliss Spa – I’ve never been there before, but I LOVE their products!
3. Out on the dance floor
4. Anywhere warmer than the 36 degrees outside…

Four favorite TV shows:

1. Grey’s Anatomy
2. 24 – I’m so glad it’s back on. Hooray! Did anyone watch it last night???
3. The Hills/any other “scripted” reality TV show – I’m guilty. What can I say?
4. Anything on the Food Network or HGTV.

Four movies I could watch over and over again:

1. Happy Gilmore – “Your fingers hurt? We’ll now your back’s gonna hurt ’cause you just pulled landscaping duty.”
2. My Best Friend’s Wedding
3. Shall We Dance/The Wedding Planner – I will always be a J to the L-O fan.
4. The Incredibles – Because I have to. Boo watches it twice a day.

Four people I’m tagging:

You, you, you, and….you.

Next Time, I’m Taking Pictures

Seen in the checkout line at Wal-Mart:

A man pushing a cart full of Doritos (probably 7 or 8 bags) and 4 gallons of skim milk. Why the skim?? :) In front of him – A man pushing a cart with 2 warehouse size boxes of diapers in different sizes, 3 cases of beer and an orange vest. Yes, this was the entire contents of their carts. Maybe I’m the only one amused?

This Is Way Too Cute!

If you want to see what she’s copying, check out the Beyonce video below. I don’t think I would show it to my kids – it’s pretty suggestive. But I still wish I had an alter-ego that allowed me to dance around in a leotard and heels. Beyonce’s alter-ego is named Sasha Fierce – Go Sasha! Hmmmm – what would be the name of my alter-ego? I’m going to go with Honey Sway I take it back…I’ve got to find a better name! :) )

Thoughts About Stalls

Yesterday I noticed I always go into the same stall in a public restroom. Always. Why? I don’t know. After I started thinking about it, I felt like I was in the Battle of Wits from The Princess Bride. (What a great movie!)

Enter Cammi’s Brain -
“If everyone else thinks the first stall is most clean, they will go into the first stall and I should clearly go into the second. However, a clever woman would think of this and go into the second stall rather than the first, so I should clearly go into the last stall. But if the most clever suspected that I would also assume they would go into the last, I clearly can’t choose the last stall and must go into the first! ….”

After curiously Googling “Most Popular Bathroom Stall”, I came across a few articles that I wish I hadn’t… I also came across this little gem – How To Turn A Public Bathroom Stall Into Your Own Private Bathroom Stall. Sorry, Author Of This Crazy Article, but you can’t be serious! Can you?? Here are a few snippets from the article:

“Some bathrooms are going to be more conducive to setup your own private stall. For example, don’t try this at a bathroom in a biker bar.”

“Stop possible interruptions. First lock the door. Next you want to put up a printed sign that the stall is in use. This might seem a little out of the ordinary and may not always be practical. However, putting up a sign will keep others from knocking or trying to enter. Be warned that you may be mocked for this, or it may even cause others to purposefully bother you. So use the sign at your own discretion.”


They Should Have Had A Dance Off…
