Finally Some Good ol' Summer Fun

It has been a while since our family has had some good family fun. But in the last few weeks we have been camping and to the beach. It has been for busy for us the last year or so, that it was fun to have some time to kick back and hang out with family.

My Little Pony EXTREME!

My daughter Lucy has been in a My Little Pony dream cloud for the past year.. movies, toys, stickers... but who can blame her, those ponies are cute. But as cute as they are, my husband always thought there were a little frilly and girly. He always joke about girly things taking over the home... and well.. he might be a little right :)

But then my brother gave me this link on Facebook and well... I think it might be the answer to bring balance back into our house hold :) I don't think my husband could resist a pony that could kick his butt :)

So check out www.jodimoisan.com to see the full collection.

"The Christmas Shovel" A True Christmas Story

My friend Tara has a blog called "Brain Surgery". Tara is an amazing mother, friend, writer, artist... and heck.. Tara is just perfect in a very Mary Popping way.

Every time I talk with her I am reminded about her strength, charity, and faith that she has. She is truly wonderful to know and I wanted to share a post that she just wrote.

If you are looking for a wonderful Christmas story or simply a chance to see that there is true kindness and generosity out there, please read her post "The Christmas Shovel"... it is short and will leave you in tears.

You Might Be An Alaskan If...

Forget Rednecks, here is what Jeff Foxworthy should say about Alaskans:

If someone in a Home Depot store offers you assistance and they don't work there, you may live in Alaska.

If you've worn shorts and a parka at the same time, you may live in Alaska.

If you measure distance in hours, you may live in Alaska. (So true)

If you know several people who have hit a moose more than once, you may live in Alaska.

If you have switched from 'heat' to 'A/C' in the same day and back again, you may live in Alaska.

If you carry jumpers in your car and your wife knows how to use them, you may live in Alaska.

If you design your kid's Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit, you may live in Alaska. (Ha ha ha... every year)

If driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled with snow, you may live in Alaska.

If you know all 4 seasons: Summer, Almost Winter, Winter and Melt Down, you may live in Alaska.

If you have more miles on your snow machine than your car, you may live in Alaska.

If you find 10 degrees 'a little chilly', you may live in Alaska.

If you never heard the phrase, "Be home by dark", you may live in Alaska

Keep Calm On.....

Have you been seeing those "Keep Calm and(something)On"? Well, they have been popping up every where. And I have to say that at first they were cute, but have you all noticed that they are seriously taking a down hill turn. People are making/posting them like crazy and now they aren't even rhyming... some just flat out don't make sense. Here is the time line of cuteness with them.

Kind of cute right? I thought so too when I first saw them... but then things started to get a little off track.

Okay... doesn't really rhyme... but I get what they are going for. Now here is where things get weird.

But you know what I have to say about this.....
