Did You Know Tuesday: Causes & Celebrations!


It's Tuesday! At the Bee and Rose that means it's time for "Did You Know?"...bits of this and that from my cluttered mind. (cluttered...not dirty...sorry, Chilly...)

And we're off...(it's short and sweet today!)

Did You Know...


that the ever fabulous DiPaola Momma over at Chicken Nuggets of Wisdom has the chance to get her lovely face on a box of Honeynut Cheerios?? Isn't that cool?! She has a fantastic opportunity to help fight hunger in our communities through an awesome campaign via ShopRite. ShopRite has created “Blog It Forward To Fight Hunger” to get people involved in the fight against hunger through blogging. All she needs is a bit of comment lovin'! How easy is that?! Go HERE for more exciting details!


Did You Know....that by visiting this awesome blogger...

you can help a family in need today? Just click on the picture and it will take you right over. I will be over there today bidding on items in a wonderful auction that Shannon has set up to help support the McCulley family. Shannon shares their story (very powerful and moving) over there as well. If you have a moment, I hope you can visit. I know what Kori McCulley is going through as our stories are very similar. Hope to see ya there!


Did you know....

that my little fairy has been dubbed "Fairy Princess of the Midsummer's Night Dream Ball"?! She was honored by Queen Bitty herself (and the darling Bear too!) to announce the Princesses of the ball and to share a special Fairy jig! We would be ever so delighted if you clicked on this magical portal to share in our special day over at A Duck In Her Pond!

(magic portal...click me!)

You will absolutely adore Duckie and her many tales of wonder! She is a spinner of tales and magical enchantments! (not to mention mouth~watering recipes!) Grab your fairy wands and wings and fly on over to the Ball!

Did You Know...


that Teen Caveboy was blown away by all the very kind birthday wishes? Did you know I was blown away that he removed his photo moratorium so I could actually post his photo on my blog? (Click here if you want to see the family photos with Teen Caveboy.) Did you also know that I can't believe I am now the mother of a TEENAGER!?

Did You Know...


Happy Tuesday to you!

Talk about a fun-filled life! I looked at the pics of the midsummer night's ball, an dI have to say that there couldn't have been a better place to hold such a wondrous event. The place looked magical, like straight out of Shakespeare's imagination when he wrote it. And Duckie looked so irresistible and adorable with that tiny crown on her pretty little head!
LORI said…
I'M NOT QUITE SURE HOW IT HAPPENS--THAT OUR CHILDREN CONTINUE TO AGE, YET WE DON'T! WEIRD...
WE CAN NOW COMMISERATE OVER THE WHOLE TEENAGE ANGST THING. CONGRATS, TEEN CAVE BOY!

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…

For Gigi ... A Letter to Heaven

Today there is a happy celebration in Heaven as it would be my beautiful grandmother Gigi's birthday.  Gigi was definitely the most important influence on my life and it became crystal clear to me how deeply when I was asked to write the eulogy for her memorial service a few years back.  I decided to send a letter directly to God explaining what amazing treasure was on it's way.  It is a letter meant to bring smiles and giggles.  Thanks in advance for allowing me to share that special letter with you today as we honor her memory:)
