From the mind of Me...

*The teen's Jazz band rocked the house on Tuesday.



*Those LATISSE commercials scare me. Why would anyone want longer lashes SO bad that they would risk having their eye color change?! "...there is potential for increased brown iris pigmentation which is likely to be permanent." Um, no thanks. As they say be careful what you wish for.



*I may not know sweaters but I know socks. I'm wearing these today & loving them.



*Counting down the days until December 1st. That's when Virginia goes smoke free. Can I get an amen?! I love playing darts but coming home smelling like an ashtray is not my idea of fun.



*For those naysayers that claim video games are bad for the kiddos, please point them in my direction. The teen is excelling in percussion and I'm attributing it to the hours spent playing Rock Band.



*I totally carved these for our competition tomorrow. Crossing my fingers that the rain holds off.



*Tonight's football game is Senior night. That means S & I are walking the teen down the track in front of everyone, so if you could give a little nod upstairs that I do not trip and fall I would really appreciate it.



Have a great weekend ya'll!

I don't get those Latisse commercials either - isn't mascara enough? YAY for smoke free, we love it here.

Yipee for no more smelling like an ashtray! Best Wishes for Sr.Night. We have medication for eyelashes but my pediatrician can't get the Swine flu vaccine, crazy world!

LOVE THE SOCKS!! I need some... :)

And I agree with you about RockBand. If only it'd been around when i was in high school... i TOTALLY would've been into the drums and would probably have turned out as an awesome rocker in a very famous band. Oh well, real estate ain't that bad, i guess. Ha...

Break a leg tonight! Er... maybe i should just say 'good luck' instead. CHEERS!!

Seriously... the Latise things... do we as women not have ENOUGH to worry about without now worrying if our EYELASHES are too thin? Maybe I'm tickled to think that there's somethinga ctually thin ON me...

And that Brooke Sheilds - she of the heavy brow - is hawking them... for some reason it makes me think a lot less of her. I thought she'd be one of those "we woman need to stand up and say I am who I am and stop making me feel like I don't measure up"

Good luck tonight!!!

You'll be just fine! Besides, you'll have that strapping young lad holding you up.

I love your pumpkins!

Latisse is SCARY!

And I lurve your socks off!

shortmama said...

I dont get the eye lash stuff either. Why would anyone do that for the sake of longer lashes? Put on some fake ones if its that important!

Dont fall...please dont fall!

Kat said...

I have very thin eyelashes. I always hope that mascara will do the trick. But I don't think I would ever be at the point of having surgery to "correct" it.

Amen on the smoke free. I am still smelling Vegas smoke. Even the clothes that I never wore, nor took out of the suitcase smell...

Lauren said...

I. Love. Those. Socks. LOVE!

And a big ol' YAY for going smoke free! We here in Montana just went smoke free and I couldn't be more excited.

Your pumpkins are tres cute too!

Veronica said...

Fantastic, my brother played trombone, very cool instrument :)

I don't understand Latisse either, it really makes no sense. I mean come on, it's only eye lashes!!!

Cool socks, I don't own a pair of awesome socks, I'm so dull LOL.

Awesome on VA going smoke free. We are here in Columbus, it's nice!

Sweet on percussion! I heart Rock Band and playing the drums is my fave!

The pumpkins turned out awesome :)

Praying you don't fall, I would be afraid of that too!

Have a fabulous weekend :)

CaraBee said...

Love the socks! I just bought a fun pair at target today.

Good luck at the pumpkin competition, your punkins are AWESOME! NO RAIN! NO RAIN!

Shannon said...

Hope tonight went well...

I want a pair of those socks! They're pure awesomeness. Srsly.

Candice said...

Hope the rain stays away.

Have a fabulous weekend dah-ling

OK, I'm still stuck on those freaky eyelashes. Weird.

DysFUNctional Mom said...

That eyelash thing is bizarre-o!
Seriously, my stepson is ADHD and video games are GREAT for him. I mean, not Grand Theft Auto & crap, but many others.

blueviolet said...

The whole state is going smoke-free? That's phenomenal!

Anything going near my eyes that has a warning is not going near my eyes.

Maven said...

We've been smoke free here for almost ten years - you will love it.

Meanwhile, I attribute my son's vocal prowess ;) to Rock Band as well (when he can get the mike from me that is)

Just popped over from a link on SITS. Nice to meet you.

The Latisse commercials scare me and I do not for one minute buy the fact that Brooke Shields needs to use the product.

Love the socks! Man I wish I could find some knee high furry socks. I am wearing mine out and it gets cold in these parts!
