eBAY: FAB, FUN, and FOREVER 21!

After making my first sell on eBay, I decided I was going to try out selling something I consider as important as air: Accessories! I recently bought a ton of jewelry from Forever 21 for an event that I never used or wore (and you can't return it)... So why not turn my "trash," so to speak, into another woman's treasure... And make a little extra cash. As an eBay Parent Panel ambassador, I'm excited to continue experimenting with buying and selling. Here's a little video I shot about my process including an extra vid so you can see the product up close. Oh, and in case you want to buy my fun finds (and by the way, they are REALLY cute... just couldn't use them), here's the link on eBay! http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=120866226634#ht_500wt_1119
and also... a close up look at the jewelry on youtube!

LOVE... THE SECOND TIME AROUND

When people think of love the second time around, they usually think that it applies to a middle aged man or woman, who after a disappointing first marriage (or maybe an unexpected death) finds someone with an equal amount of baggage, and they fall in love. It's unlikely that people would ever suspect that a man or woman in their 80's could experience (or would even want to experience) love again.... But it happens. And it happened to my Nana.

I've shared many of my favorite Nana stories and conversations here before. My most favorite was when she called me to tell me she couldn't find her Yahoo... (Stick with this post... you'll come to discover that she has definitely found it. And more). Oh yes, Nana is in love. Deeply in love. Though she was married to my Papa for 57 beautiful years, she is now experiencing love the second time around with a wonderful man named Burt, who was married for 62 years!

Recently, I had the chance to sit down with Nana and Burt, for Lifetime Moms, to talk about their relationship for... and other things. Happy Valentine's Day, everyone. Lots and lots of love....

WORDLESS WEDNESDAY: BLUE HANDS

Yep, I'd say this is a sign of an accomplished day at preschool.

SO... THIS IS WHAT I SOUND LIKE?

If you've read my "About Me" section, then you know I was quite the ham when I was a little girl. From imaginary friends to belting Dionne Warwick love songs, I loved to perform and play pretend any chance I got. I was always pretty great with impressions and (as the winner for Best Sense of Humor in 8th grade) loved making people laugh. Still do. SO, I suppose it should come as no surprise that Jonah has developed his own shtick and loves nothing more than to make people laugh. Lately, if he's not quieting down the room to tell a knock-knock joke, then he's doing (unsolicited) imitations. And frankly, he's kind of good. The other day, at dinner, OUT of NOWHERE, he "did me."

Um, is that really how I sound? (Don't answer that).
