I'd much rather talk about my kids' toys, but here are seven things you might not know about me.
  1. I can correctly identify *and* sing along to 8 or 9 of 10 polka songs, and I don’t know why.
  2. I am a roller derby grrrl.
  3. I resent fruit for pretending it’s so easy to eat, when it actually requires all kinds of washing, peeling, and chopping to turn it into nice little bites.
  4. I have never skied, eaten a biscotti, or watched Saturday Night Fever.
  5. Robin Williams once cut me off and took the parking spot I wanted.
  6. Tall ships make me swoon. In a dreamy schoolgirl crush kinda way.
  7. I am not really left-handed.
My Fab Fifteen Baker's Dozen (in no particular order):
  1. Living That Life / Firewife Elly - Did I mention she will make you a custom tutu?
  2. Your Average Joe - Makes me smile on a daily basis.
  3. Feed Our Families - Gina has great ideas for keeping your family healthy and happy.
  4. Off My Mama Rocker - One of my favorite twin mamas.
  5. Cheapgirldraws - Helps me vicariously live the life of an art student.
  6. Filth Wizardry - I love her projects.
  7. Blogging Dangerously - #wineparty hostess with the most-est
  8. Mommy Wants Vodka - She cracks me up.
  9. Twinpossible - Twin mamas rock!
  10. The Sarcasm Goddess - She makes a fine pirate, folks.
  11. Today's Special - She's a foodie and a friend.
  12. Critters and Crayons - Real parenting with humor.
  13. Katie's Fighters - Just wow.


  1. Thank You... You do a good job putting a smile on my face as well :o)Xx

  2. I'm glad someone shares my annoyance with fruit! I know it's good for you, but really... all that work? Unfortunately pineapple is my favorite fruit but Costco sells it peeled and sliced so I can eat as much as I want without doing anything (other than get off my ass and drive to the store, fight for a cart, shove around the aisles, wait 10 minutes in line and drive home). Guess it kinda takes longer to go to Costco than cut up the damn thing myself but I make an outing of the shopping trip and look at all sorts of random crap I don't need.

    Love your list, but seriously, you haven't skied? You gotta try it!

    Not Supermom sent me!

  3. @Your Average Joe: Aw, golly shucks...

    @Naked Mommy: Welcome! I'm so happy to find someone else annoyed by fruit and its false advertising!! I didn't ski when I was young because I couldn't afford it. Now, I'd rather be in the lodge having a hot toddy than falling face first in the snow. Although I do love me a good downhill...

  4. Thanks, Mommy's Minions! Got my post done, finally!

  5. @crittersandcrayons: Yay! Off to read your post!
