Did You Know Tuesday....Fun and Frippery!




Welcome to another installment of "Did You Know Tuesday"! DYKT is my sneaky way of creating a post out of a bunch of jibberish because I'm unable string together more than a couple of coherent thoughts at any given time these days. (stupid perimenopause!)

ReAdY? SeT! GO!

DID YOU KNOW....that I won this gorgeous boucle scarf from Ally over at Laughadaisy?? I cannot wait to wear it this fall!!! Look how cute it's packaged! I hope you'll swing on by her Etsy shop for a visit! Lots of cute stuff over there! Thank you again, Ally! I LOVE IT!

(you can buy this here....)

DID YOU KNOW....that it's not very kind to be judgemental toward homeschooling families...especially if you own or work at an educational resource store? If I am shopping in your store for my home classroom, it's very rude to physically push me aside (yes, I was physically brushed aside) to help (and this is a direct quote) the "real teachers." I am a REAL teacher, dumbass, and because of your rudeness I spent my classroom dollars elsewhere. Oh, and by the way, rude store person....I know LOTS of public & private school educators in Tucson who will no longer frequent your establishment. Snap!

DID YOU KNOW....that I am more like Betty...

than Veronica.....How about you?? Are you a Betty or are you more of a Veronica?



DID YOU KNOW....I get all "verklempt" when I watch this movie trailer???


(We interrupt our regular posting for a bit of bribery and nagging....Please bear with us during our mental breakdown....)


(ooops! how did that get in here???)

Begging (and hypnosis) will now commence....

As I pleaded and groveled about yesterday, I am this week's Featured Reader over at the fabulous blog, La Dolce Vita! Hooray!

La Dolce Vita

The begging and pleading via hypnotic mind control is for the votes I need from my lovely bloggy friends so that I may win this....

xoxo

I am definitely a Betty. I saw the trailer for Where The Wild Things Are this weekend. It looks amazing!

Well, I'll be darned. I didn't know. ;)
Bobby G said…
I banged Betty & Veronica! PIMP! lol Love you w/ all My heart Bee, but typically home school children (the ones I know) are FREAKSHOWS! But if ANYONE can do it right I bet you can!
Randi Troxell said…
great randomness.. and happy tuesday too!!!
LadyStyx said…
You'd think that people in those types of stores would be much more polite, especially if there's another of the same type of store nearby.
Jillene said…
The scarf is GORGEOUS!! And I left you some comment love so that you can win!!
Kelly said…
Oh I also got choked up during that trailer. Both times! What is the deal there?

I think I am a Betty too.

Good luck with the necklace Bee.
Polka Dot Moon said…
Can we vote more than once? I did yesterday :)
The Blonde Duck said…
Have you seen the Alice in Wonderland trailor yet?
Kathy B! said…
Congrats on being Featured Reader... I'm on my way now to vote :)

Your posts are always so full of information that I start thinking of comments immediately, but by the time I get to the end, I can't remember everything I wanted to comment on. It's a very entertaining process though. ;)

I SOOOO Want to see 'Where the Wild Things Are'! Pathetic as it sounds, I saw the trailer in the theater and as soon as I saw his costume, I knew exactly where the preview was headed! I nearly cried with excitement over the possibilities - but they better be very very careful not to ruin it or I think they will have a lot of tearful and pissed off adults on their hands.

I love that t-shirt! I can't believe you were treated so rudely! And why does the shop owner even give preference since everyone walking in is a potential customer - STUPID!

I will head over and check out your feature... oh and vote!
Yaya said…
Hmm....well that would put you in competition against me at La Dolce Vite...BUT...I guess I'll go comment for you. ;)

I cannot believe someone at a store said you weren't a real teacher. You're more than a teacher, you have to know everything, not just a specialized age or subject.
Trooper Thorn said…
I'm more like Jughead.
blueviolet said…
I voted again for you! You know between those two, I don't have a clue. For some reason, that's one show and comic I never got into.
Hit 40 said…
I am off to vote for you!!! The necklace is fabulous!!

I can not believe the dumb clerk insulted you!!! What the heck??? I am sure the store manager would be aghast at her behavior but it is not worth your time to tattle on her. I would also just shop some where else.
Fabulous scarf and I am LOVING that t-shirt! We need some at our house! I am sooooooo angry that you were pushed aside for the "real teachers"!! Unbelievable! Good for you for spending your money somewhere else, Sweets!

Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog! Stop by and check out my lamp makeover!:) I will be posting later tonight... Lori

I'm more of a Big Ethel Muggs myself. ;o)
Kristen Andrews said…

koralee said…
Very cute post...just came over from brown eyed gal to meet you...I so agree with the home schooling issue....how rude was that store person!!!! Oh I am more like Betty too....off to visit some of your past posts....your blog is lovely!
Jen said…
I like this. Sometimes randomness is just the way to go.
Janna Bee said…
Definitely Betty. I can't believe he is going to marry Veronica!
LT said…
I so voted for you again!!!
I love the homeschool t-shirt, and OMG about the rude person! Lots of others will appreciate your money much more than that, I just don't know about customer service anymore.
And I guess I am a Betty.
Whitney said…
No worries! I've totally been having blogger following issues with people too!

So, I guess mothers aren't considered "real teachers" then - especially the ones that home school? So mother's that put in a serious investment into their children's education aren't "real teachers"? What a Turd Ferguson! Never shop at that establishment again!

I'm half Betty and half Veronica I'd say.

So excited for Where the Wild Things Are!!
Jennifer said…
OMG i can't believe you were shoved! Awful!

I'll go vote...
The Mrs. said…
That Trailer made me BAWL! I love it!!! Cannot wait to see!
Donnetta said…
Ummm...Hi....still alive...barely!

But you go, Betty!!!
Vickie said…
I can't believe the clerk at the store was rude! I mean...it is not good business. Stupid lady. Opps...I tell my kids not to use that word, but I think it fits:)

I couldn't see the trailer. So, I am out of the loop.
Kado! said…
have not seen the trailer yet....but we LOVE the book...and I know my boys and I will be watching that one!!! My youngest just recently got into the book....I know he will love it!....a classic!
Adorable post, I always adore your "did you" know entries. I'm a Betty hands down too, but I like to imagine what it would like to keep Betty's kind, giving spirit but have Ronnie's fortune. Think of all you could do for Riverdale and beyond :)


Have a beautiful evening, my dear!
♥ Jessica
Alexis AKA MOM said…
What Where the Wild things are is a movie??? OK so out of the loop do you mean my favorite book that I use to read when I was young? Holy crud, the trailer won't play for me!

That scarf looks super soft, I want to see a pic of you in it!

That and the homeschool t-shirt! Wear it proud girlie!

A Wee Drop of Irish (or Cloudy With a Chance of B*tchy Part 2)

Happy St. Patrick's Day! How about a wee stroll down memory lane?  Thank you to everyone who messaged me about sharing this blast from the past again this year:)  (yes, Maureen...I do read your emails too!)  Even though it was originally posted in 2009, not too much has changed (says Dawn in her "I can't believe I have PMS every single year at this same time"  happy (think Pharrell singing "Happy") voice.  So grab a cup of Irish coffee, Jameson whiskey, Guinness or whatever suits your fancy on this fine St. Patrick's Day and let me share a tale of whimsy with you.  (and may the luck of the Irish be with you if you come my way today!  Don't say I didn't warn you!)   



Oops! What's she doing here again? Wasn't she just here a month ago? UGH! The nerve! We had so much "fun" last time she was here, didn't we? 

Well, since I have a full day of Irish activities planned, I guess I better be gettin' my Irish on....hmm...let's s…

Chilly Update...

I hate this disease with a passion...more on that in a moment...

First and foremost, there aren't enough words in the English language to convey my most sincere gratitude for the amazing love and support you've all shared with my family. I am completely overwhelmed and very humbled by it all. I've shared all of your comments and emails with Chilly and the kiddos. It has meant so much to us! Thank you, thank you and thank you again!

I wish I could write that Chilly is fine and coming home tomorrow. I wish I could go back to last Friday when every fiber of my being was screaming at me that Chilly was having a heart attack. I wish I would have pinned him to the ground and shoved an aspirin down his throat when he put me off about his symptoms. I wish he would have agreed to go to the ER...Sadly, I can't turn back time...

We were told today that Chilly has suffered a stroke in addition to a heart attack. These two events occured together...meaning, he had the stroke w…
