The Next Survivor Series

This was an e-mail that was forwarded to me from a friend and I laughed so hard. I just had to put it up on the blog to share it with you all. Go ahead and laugh. I did.


Six married men will be dropped on an island with one car and 3 kids each for six weeks.
Each kid will play two sports and either take music or dance classes. There is no fast food. Each man must take care of his 3 kids; keep his assigned house clean, correct all homework, and complete science projects, cook, do laundry, and pay a list of 'pretend' bills with not enough money.

In addition, each man will have to budget in money for groceries each week. Each man must remember the birthdays of all their friends and relatives, and send cards out on time--no emailing. Each man must also take each child to a doctor's appointment, a dentist appointment and a haircut appointment.

He must make one unscheduled and inconvenient visit per child to the Urgent Care. He must also make cookies or cupcakes for a social function. Each man will be responsible for decorating his own assigned house, planting flowers outside and keeping it presentable at all times. The men will only have access to television when the kids are asleep and all chores are done. The men must shave their legs, wear makeup daily, adorn himself with jewelry, wear uncomfortable yet stylish shoes, keep fingernails polished and eyebrows groomed.

During one of the six weeks, the men will have to endure severe abdominal cramps, back aches, and have extreme, unexplained mood swings but never once complain or slow down from other duties.

They must attend weekly school meetings, church, and find time at least once to spend the afternoon at the park or a similar setting. They will need to read a book to the kids each night and in the morning, feed them, dress them, brush their teeth and comb their hair by 7:00 am.

A test will be given at the end of the six weeks, and each father will be required to know all of the following information:
each child's birthday, height, weight, shoe size, clothes size and doctor's name.
Also the child's weight at birth, length, time of birth, and length of labor, each child's favorite color, middle name, favorite snack, favorite song, favorite drink, favorite toy, biggest fear and what they want to be when they grow up.

The kids vote them off the island based on performance. The last man wins only if...he still has enough energy to be intimate with his spouse at a moment's notice.

If the last man does win, he can play the game over and over and over again for the next 18-25 years eventually earning the right To be called Mother!

After you get done laughing, send this to as many females as you think will get a kick out of it and as many men as you think can handle it. Just don't send it back to me.... I'm going to bed.

Baby & Kids Expo Revisited

The Expo was as much fun as I was hoping it would be. Too many cute kids and adults acting like kids. The ribbon wands were a big hit and I almost sold out. Many thanks to my friend Sarah ( yes we have the same name) for helping me out the entire day and attracting kiddos to the booth by playing ribbon wands with me. I met so many nice people and reconnected with some vendors I had met in the past. It was great to see how everyones products have evolved over the past years. I can't wait to do it again next year. Many thanks to KM Photography Studios for providing me with this photo of me playing ribbon wands in my booth. Getting a photo with both my eyes open and with out a ribbon in front of my face is no small task.

Oh My! Ponny-O's!

Yet another fun thing I have found to do with ribbon is make pony-o's. A pony-o is a ponytail elastic with the ribbon already attached. This way you don't have to worry about the ribbon falling off of your ponytail! The ribbon is a foot in length and topped of with a co-ordinating knot. The 7/8" wide ribbon O's have 2 lengths of ribbon where the 3/8" ribbon have 4 lengths. The choice is yours. These can be found at Mommy's 'Lil Rascals consignment shop in Machester, Pa or you can contact me to place an order. Currently they are not on my Etsy site.

Tomorrow is the DAY!!

I am so excited that tomorrow is the day for the York Baby and Kids Expo.  It is such a fun event.  First off it is FREE.  And we all know how I feel about the word FREE.  There is going to be a bounce house, face painting, giveaways, walk around Abby Caddaby and the Steven Courtney Band.  Don't forget about the diaper derby.  I  don't know who is more fun to watch, the babies or the adults!!  But of course you should stop by and see me at booth 301.  I am going to be right inside the doors of the hall.  If you see a photographer roaming about that is the talent of KM Photography Studio.  Cheese it up for the camera!  Be on the look out for my blog buddy Little Pink Pansy.  She will be there with so many boutique items!   Do you see why I am excited about this day?  It is going to be an awesome event for all.
