Totally Random.

First of all, I'd really like to thank those of you who stopped by my blog yesterday and read my post. The comments you left me were very sweet, and I can't tell you how much they all meant to me. To know that there are so many kind and caring people out there, it just brings a smile to my face. No matter what is going on in our lives, there is always a reason to smile. Thank you guys for that!

Now on to my totally random post today. I just got finished eating a bag of m&m's. Well actually I made myself put them away, as it was a pretty large bag. And I felt like I could probably eat the whole thing. So I made myself do it. There was a small argument. But I won. The smart and sensible me, won. :) But man alive, were them suckers ever good.

Just a little while ago, as I was trying to watch Justin Timberlake on SNL, I hopped onto a link and then I get this message. I was totally and seriously bummed. I get this "error" message a lot when trying to view video links. I can view quite a few, but there are some I can't see. Hulu is one of the sites. Huge bummer.

And for the record, if you haven't seen Justin Timberlake on SNL, you should. He is absolutely one of the best guest hosts I've ever seen. (in my opinion). He is hysterical.

Today is the first day that I'm all bundled up inside my own home. I am wearing a hot pink v-neck fleece pull over from Old Navy. And black Fila sweat pants. (also fuzzy socks from JC Penney, but who cares right). Anyway, I just checked the temps right this minute, and it is at 57 degrees. In the "supposed" warmest part of the day.

If I hadn't mentioned it before, I am a HUGE baby, a wimp if you will, in regards to temperature shifts. I'm talking cold weather here. I do not, nor have I ever lived in a climate where white frozen crystals fall from the heavens above. Just has never happened. I didn't own a coat until recently. I'm a Florida girl through and through. So yeah, I'm bundled. The miniature heater is on. And I'm getting ready to break out my parka.

OK, next item on my random list: I let my son sleep with a shovel. It's true. He won't sleep without it. And he asks for it every night. Sometimes during the day I have to take it away from him. He gets a little carried away and will on occasion, hit his sister with it. But every night, like clock work, he asks for that shovel.

How do you guys feel about ipods? Do you have one? Do your children? And if they are begging you to buy them one, at what age do you think it's appropriate to buy it for them? Well. My kids have one. Each. And they LOVE them. Alexa sleeps with hers.

OK, yeah yeah. I know. It's not really an ipod. But my daughter, who is 2 actually started that. My dad has an ipod and he used to let her listen to it. When I bought these for Christmas, she just instantly started calling it her very own ipod. It was cute, it stuck and it didn't cost anywhere near the price. Also, it came pre-programmed with kids music and has an automatic shut off. So it doesn't matter if they sleep with it on, it turns itself right back off. I love it. One of my better finds.

And now I hear little people waking up from their naps. Time for mommy to get off the computer~~

Sorry you couldn't get the Justin Timberlake tape to come thru.
Photos of the kiddoes are adorable.
Winter weather sounds weird here in Az. with our temps inching up to the 100 mark soon.
Love ya;

I love your randome posts! They are exactly that; random! :o)

So, first, I have an iPod. Just got one for Mother's Day. The hubs has had one for a few years. When I got mine, that's when Kendra started with, "I wish I could have my own iPod!" She won't be getting one for quite a while. I'm 27 and had to wait a few years for one, so that 4 year old ain't getting one for a few more than that! ;o) I think once she starts to treat things responsibly, then maybe we'll think about getting her one!

That is too funny that Eddie sleeps with a SHOVEL! Hilarious!

My mom gets those error messages all the time, and she lives in Canada, like 20 minutes from the USA border, so just find comfort in the fact that you're not the only one who can't watch some video links. That totally sucks though!

LOL! It just started to get as warm as it is in Santiago a few weeks ago, and we're just finally getting into weather that's in the high 70's this week! And here we're all hanging out in tank tops and shorts! LOL! But it must suck to be heading into winter when the rest of everyone else is heading into summer! Don't worry though, we'll all be jealous of you when the tables are turned again in a few months! :o)

Have a great weekend! I'm glad that you found reason to smile amidst your trial! (Hey! That rhymed!)

Mother lover is the funniest video too!! I wonder if I can save it and email it to you... *hmmm*

LMAO @ the shovel!!!!! How funny is that!?

And I love the little ipod thing. What's it called? My 4 y/o would love it. She still uses her crib "mugas". Yep, sounds like mucus. She can say music, but it just makes me smile hearing her say mugas. *teehee*

Oh- and thanks for the m&m craving! My fat prego butt doesn't need any extra calories. Lucky for me, there were only 3 oreos left in the package. :P

Ugh! That video message drives me nuts!

With the temp thing I think it has a lot to do with where you are. I'm from Texas and I remember my first summer here I wore a jacket the whole time. Now that I am used to it, as soon as it hits 70 I break out short sleeves and skirts. Odd.

I am always gushing about the JT/Andy Samberg combo on my blog. Justin has got to be the best host SNL has seen in a long while. The entire show was good, not just one skit, which is how it usually goes...

Stoppin' by from SITS to say "hi" and welcome. I know that you will enjoy being a part of this vibrant community of bloggers!

I watched a bit of Timberlake last night on SNL, too! Then I gave up and decided I needed sleep more than eye candy!

I came by to welcome you to SITS! We're happy to have you with us!

I love JT's guest spots on SNL too! He's really funny.

Dropping in to welcome you to SITS!

"Just bring it on down to Plasticville!"... was that not the most hilarious thing you've ever seen?! I love JT.

I have an iPod... have had it for a few years. Oldest was 7 when she got hers... but youngest was 5 when she got hers. Well, in all fairness, she was two months away from being 6.
