For the girlie girl

Over the years I have bought some cute things for my nephews.  My sister had a girl almost three years ago and I discovered how much more cute stuff there is out there for girls than boys.  So, I have loved finding cute things for little girls.  I have now officially found the cutest thing ever...my niece looks so cute in these Hello Kitty pajamas.  I wish she had a pair to wear every day! Seriously adorable!


For your viewing pleasure

I am devoting this post to the special place that is Wal-Mart.  I'm a Target girl myself, but if I haven't showered all day in a few days or am wearing something between exercise clothes and pajamas...Wal-Mart it is.  I have found great things at Wal-Mart - especially stuff for my niece and nephews.  A girl I work with picked up a super cute dress that is totally "work appropriate".  The store itself seems to have gotten more clean over the years, but the parking lot has stayed the same.  I haven't been to every Wal-Mart in the country, but I have been to my fair share in my 42 years and the parking lot is always the same.  The cars aren't parked straight, there are carts in open parking places and you can't find a spot near the door.  I know! You are supposed to park far away to get hidden exercise, but you might get run over if you have to walk too far in the Wal-Mart lot.  But, I digress.

The best Wal-Mart activity is people watching.  Everyone knows this.  If I go too long without getting to the store, I love to check out the People of Walmart site.  It is truly amazing.  Go there right away if you haven't ever visited the site.

I recently came across a link with 31 Products You Won’t Believe You Can Actually Buy At Walmart.  Not only is it comedic gold, but I have found more things to add to my sister can take to her next White Elephant party.

While I'm talking about Wal-Mart...did you know they have a special cheer? I learned this from my friend Jenny years ago...I'm sorry you can't see her do it, but these guys do a nice job with it.


Summer Sips

I'm not entirely sure how I feel about this sunscreen flask.  If you're using it at the pool, it seems lame, but kind of brilliant if you're taking it to a baseball game.  It certainly would have been easier than what we used to do to smuggle booze into games in college.


Out of commission

I finally got tired of listening to my friend Susann yell at me about not reading the Harry Potter books...I must admit I'm hooked and reading the books and watching the movies has taken over all of my free time! 


When did I get so old?

The Rubik's cube is 40 today.  How did that happen? I was never talented enough to solve the puzzle, but it was so popular when I was growing up...

Google is celebrating the anniversary today with an interactive doodle that I'm certain I will have less luck with than the original cube!


Vans Redux

Apparently, everyone is getting into the skate shoe trend. If you are looking for something a bit more jazzy than your old school Vans Classic Slip-Ons, you have lots of options.  Check out the ones from CĂ©line for $745!?!?! The Vince one is much more affordable at $195.  But, my friend Pauline found an even more affordable one at Steve Madden.
