"Accessorize Me Swap" Goodies & a linky!

In October I thought it might be fun to organize my very first "swap"... all about accessories!!
I was lucky to have 15 wonderful ladies sign up for it!

I was paired with Summer from Made By Munchies Mama...
I was just a teeny bit excited, as you can imagine, since her stuff looks like this!

My parcel arrived earlier this week, and it felt like Christmas morning!


I was totally spoiled by Summer!
I received 2 set of matching rings & headbands (that double as brooches! boo ya!)
I love, love, love them...
they are so "me!"



Thank you so much, Summer!
Your creations are beautiful!
So happy we were paired up... can't wait to hear what you think about yours!

If you took part in the swap,
please link up below when you receive your goodies so we can see what everyone got!

I hope everyone had fun... I'd love to do something like this again someday!

First, is my "casual" look... This is what I wore on Sunday when we brought the kids to McDonald's for lunch and did a little shopping!

Me: "Ruby, can you pick that up, please?"
Ruby: "Ugh. Why do I have to be Cinderella ALL THE TIME!"
Me: "You're only Cinderella if you are cleaning up other peoples messes... like me.  Mommy is Cinderella."
Ruby: "Oh yeah. Right."

Why Bloggy Buddies are the Best!

Isn't it funny how someone you've only ever met online and have gotten to know through blog posts & emails can become such a good friend!?
It still amazes me how many new friends I've made through blogging.
I met Brooke through a Friendship Bracelet Swap, and she's awesome!


I'm sure some of you have noticed I'm a little obsessed with tights right now.
Uh huh.
Well, Brooke did.
And when she mentioned that maybe I could find some cool one at H&M and when I mentioned the closest H&M is, like, 4 hours away(!!)... Brooke said she'd take a peak for me next time she was there!

Well, last week I received this parcel in the mail...



Serioulsy, not only did she pick out 2 totally gorgeous pair of tights for me... 
she also picked up this adorable bracelet and sent it for Ruby!!
We love getting the mail around here!

The point of the post isn't that bloggy buddies are great because they send you stuff.
The point is they listen AND they go out of their way to do things for you sometimes.
How awesome is that!?

Thanks again, Brooke!

If you haven't checked out Brooke's blog yet, you can find her over at A New View 365
Also, don't forget to enter the !mo Camera Strap giveaway that ends tonight...
and keep your eyes peeled!
I have some fun stuff happening on the blog this week!

Have a great day!

:: I Am _____ Right Now ::

Linking up with Miss Mommy for Tuesday Ten {on a Monday evening!}, and following her prompt & Salena's lead with a fantastic idea for a post...



 I Am
Proud to be "me."  Even if "me" doesn't fit into our small town idea of what "me" should be.
I Wonder
What it would be like to not have to "worry" about anything... ever.

I See
The way Ruby looks up to her big brother.  Always tagging along & trying to keep up.

I Want
My kids to know we will always love them, no matter what.

I Pretend
To be more confident than I actually am.

I Worry
All the time.  If it's not one thing, it's another.
Bad habit. I've always been this way!

I Cry
When I watch The Notebook, or A Walk to Remember.
Every.single.time.

I Hope
 My kids aren't bullies.
I've taught to be accepting of others.... I hope they've listened.

I Dream
Of THEIR future.  I can't wait to see what they become!

I Feel
Calm, right now.
Everything's gonna be alright.

Monday Giveaway {{ !mo Camera Strap }}

A little while back, Bo-bo of !mo Camera Fashion contacted me via email...
it was THE FIRST time I'd been contacted by a stranger to review their product.

!mo is based in Hong Kong(!) and they are looking to expand their business.
They found Etsy and are working hard to promote their product worldwide.

After taking a quick peek at the Etsy shop... I was in!
The icing on the cake was that I was allowed to pick any camera strap I wanted!
It was hard to choose, but so exciting!

A couple weeks ago, my package arrived in the mail...
Squeeeee!


 It was packaged just right, and so easy to switch my old strap for this new one.
I chose the simple Black & White strap.  Funky, yet not too loud.
It looked pretty, and the ends are made with real leather.
Classy!

Not only does it look great... it's super comfortable too! 
Stylish, trendy, comfortable and very high quality... I have NO problem recommending these straps to anyone who is looking for a new one!


!mo Camera
is giving away a choice of any camera strap 
to 1 lucky reader!!

Not a bad start to the week, right!?

You must be a follower of Mom2MemphisAndRuby and leave a comment telling me which camera strap you would choose if you won {browse the Etsy Shop}

a dress for me

Sorry I haven't been around much...
Has anyone noticed!?
{I know Mama did... she tweeted me yesterday cuz I was MIA on Friday...
aren't bloggy buddies the best!?}

Life has been crazy this past week... such a LONG story!  :S
But... I'm back to the blogosphere,
abd I'm up at the crack of dawn on this beautiful Sunday morning hoping to catch up a little online!

I totally took advantage of eShakti's 50% Thanksgiving Sale this morning {nothing like last minute!}... 
and along with a coupon code for $20 off, I got this darling dress for $24.95!



I love EVERYTHING about this dress!  The color, the length, the draping. 
I'm sure I can wear it to work, or dress it up for a fancier function!

Made my day... and the day just started!  ;)

I am thinking I might try to talk the hubs into setting up the Christmas tree today...
We usually wait until AFTER Ruby's birthday, but since there is still NO snow here, I'd like the house to feel a little more festive!  Ruby was in our local "Parade of Lights" last night... it was nice that it was so "mild", but so weird that there wasn't a stitch of snow anywhere!  :S

Oooooh, I think I hear the pitter patter of little feet... looks like my day is officially about to start!
Hope all my American buddies had an awesome Thanksgiving {all the status updates and post on Thursday were making me VERY hungry!!}

i am blank

 
I am weird because
I love waking up BEFORE the kids, even if that means getting up at 6:00 a.m. on the weekends
I can't eat a sandwich that someone else has made
I don't own a cell phone {I've mentioned this before and people are shocked!}
I put vinegar on my pasta
Chewing gum helps me fall asleep
I hate wearing socks
I'm a natural blonde, but I prefer my hair dark -- luckily, my eyebrows are naturally dark!!

I am a bad friend because
I don't make a bigger effort to see my friends that live out of town
I never call anyone
I don't always tell them exactly what is going on in my life

I am a good friend because
I am loyal
I'm not judgemental
I am happy for my all my friends successes
I can be silly with them... :P
I can offer good advice {sometimes!}
I listen


I am sad because
Unexpected car troubles have left us super broke
My brother is going through an "interesting" time and I think it will affect my whole family
Nothing in my close fits me anymore!

I am happy because
We finally have a set date for Memphis' evaluation
I finally had the courage to pierce my nose! Love it!
I have a beautiful, healthy family
I will be able to surprise the hubs with a great birthday gift today 
I scored a super cute "leather " vest while out thrifting the other day {can't wait to wear it!}


I am excited for
The holidays
My next pay, so I won't ''seem'' so broke anymore 
Ruby's birthday
A new episode of "Once Upon a Time" this Sunday

Post inspired by 


Happy Thanksgiving to all my American bloggy buddies!!

What I Wore Wednesday

Linking up again with The Pleated Poppy for WIWW!

pleated poppy

This week I'm sharing a VERY common "weekend" look for me...


... and a fun & girly "work" look {it's a NEW dress!  don't you just feel so pretty in a new dress!?}



I have to admit... the only reason I took any pictures this week was to show off my new nose ring! Ha!
I'm hoping to be more consistent in my outfit posts, though.  It helps me "make an effort" in the mornings!  ;)

You "Nose" I did it!

You all know me VERY well!  
When I teased you about having crossed something of my 32 While 32 List... most of you guessed that I pierced my nose, and you were TOTALLY right!

Last Friday evening, I headed to the big city {Ottawa!} to visit my friend.
It's been forever since we've just hung out... you know, without kids.
And it was GREAT!
Just like old times!

And just like old times... we decided to do something fun!




I've been wanting one FOREVER, and I love it!
It already feels "normal."
I'm so happy I went for it!




Aside from scratching that off my list,
the rest of the weekend was really nice too!
We did a little shopping, thrifting {scored a cute necklace holder and an awesome {fake}leather vest!}, hit up a local craft sale, grabbed a coffee, and just gabbed away!

It felt really nice to have a little "me" time with my bestie!

 Hello Mom2MemphisAndRuby readers!
I am excited to be here with you all today!
When Lena said she needed a volunteer to  guest post on her blog I jumped at the chance to do it.

Seriously.... :) I just recently discovered her blog and have found that her and I have a lot of similarities.
We both love scary movies, want to get our noses pierced (in my case, repierced), love to read and most importantly love being mommas! I have two kids as well, a little boy and girl, ages 15 months and 2 1/2.




Let me back up a second, I am Ashley and I blog over here 
On my blog you will find glimpses into my everyday life. It's not always pretty, but it is perfect for me. I am a stay at home momma and on somedays (like today, where it is 36 degrees out and pouring) the kids and I get a little stir crazy.

I just recently was given a recipe to make glitter at home using only food coloring and salt! Yup, that is right. Salt and food coloring of your choice is all you need. Well, and a bowl and spoon, of course. :) Let's get started! Simply fill a small mixing bowl with 1/2 cup salt and drop in 5-6 drops of food coloring. I may have gotten a little drop happy. 

see...I may have done a bit more than what it called for. :)

                                   
  Next, it is as simple as stirring it together really well. 

Stirs pretty easily 

Now, you can do the next step one of two ways. You can microwave it for 1- 2mins to "cook" it or you can lay it out on waxpaper and let it air dry. I chose the microwave, because let's face it, my children (and I) have no patience! I put it in the microwave for 1 min and 30 seconds. It is not quite as shiny as store bought glitter but I like that we made it and that it is non-toxic.

Here it is being put to good use! A blue glitter turkey. :)


Thanks for having me here today. Stop by if you get a chance. Last week we did home made play dough and next week I will be attempting peanut butter play dough. 

*************************************************** 

Thanks so much for stopping by with such a great tutorial, Ashley!
I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend! 
I'm off to see my bestie in the city after work today, and I'm so excited!  It's been forever since we've been able to hang out!

Eff, Marry, Kill { Geek Edition }

photobucket

Woohoo! 
It's back!
{Love this linkup!}
Can't wait to see who everyone else is choosing this week!









Today I'm sharing my "Geek" list!


 and this is why...

Eff
I'm not usually into scrawny guys... but Mathew Gray Grubler's character, Dr. Spencer Reid, is damn sexy!
So cute, in fact, I can't decide whether I like him with the short or long hair better! 
Yummy.

Marry
Michael Cera... okay, how cute is he!? 
Seriously?  Don't you just love him in everything he does!?
I think it'd be sweet to have him around the house.
It'd be like having an extra cute pet around all the time!  Ha!

Kill
Urkel.  Okay, I loved him as much as the next person back in the day..
but when it comes to sexy geeks, he's very, VERY, low on my list.
"Did I do that!?"
Hearing that repeatedly could turn any sane woman murderous, am I right!?



Don't forget that today is the LAST day to enter my birthday GIVEAWAYS!
7 awesome giveaways you really don't want to miss out on!
Good luck, winners announced tomorrow
{if I can get up early enough to run them through random.org before work... heading to the BREAKING DAWN midnight premiere tonight!  Woot!}

yellow.

I love the color yellow and to be honest, I've been dying for a yellow purse...

Well, Happy Birthday to me! 

Purse: A Dash of Fab, Sweater: Old Navy, Rosette Necklace: Soleil Selene
 I love it!
My sister went to a Dash of Fab purse party, and picked this up for me, on behalf of my mom.
So, thanks to them (aren't they the awesomest!?), I am a proud new owner of a yellow purse!  Finally!

Of course, this means I'll have to get a winter jacket & maybe a new wallet to match...
but I'm up for the challenge!

The best part is, it also folds over & you can attach the straps, and it turns into this...

Squeeeeee!!  So happy!!

Oh, don't forget that today is the last day to enter my birthday giveaways!
Good luck!

The Ultimate Twilight Fan Linkup

Photobucket

1. Are you going to see Breaking Dawn at the midnight release?
Yes! Of course!  I've seen every one at midnight except for the first movie... I'm so excited!

2. Scene you're most looking forward to in Break Dawn?
Geez... there are so many.  Breaking Dawn was a great book that I couldn't put down!  Of course, I'm really anxious to see  how they do the honeymoon & birth scenes!

3.Team Edward or Jacob?
I'm more of a Jacob fan... BUT I know that Bella should be with Edward... it all works out!

4. Favorite book in the Saga?
I love them all... but Breaking Dawn was crazy good!  

5. Favorite character in the series and why?
I love Jacob, Jasper... Rosalie grows on me at the end.  

6. Why do you love Twilight?
It's fun.  It's a pg-version of True Blood... I've always had a thing for vampires... ever since Buffy!  What's not to love!?

7. Are the books or movies better?
Books are always better!  Some of the makeup really bugs me in the movies... haha!

8. What do you dislike about the series?
That it's over!  There are so many more stories to be told!
Oh, and although I think Kristen Stewart is the perfect Bella Swan...

her lack of expression does get on my  nerves a tad!  ;)

9. Craziest fan moment?
I think the fact that I'm a 32 year old mom of 2 little kids and I'm going to a midnight premiere of a movie when I know I have to be up by 6:00 the next day is a little crazy!

10. Do you have a Twilight collection?
I own all the movies... but other than that, nope.

highlights for hope

Have you heard of Highlights for Hope?
Highlights for Hope is a pink highlight campaign dedicated to raising funds and awareness for cancer research, education, and support.  Pink hair extensions are woven into supporter’s hair as an uplifting and identified expression of their commitment and serve as visible tributes to the strength and courage of individuals affected by cancer.
 A few weeks ago our boss set out a challenge for us.
If all the women in the office would agree to participate in the Highlights For Hope fundraiser, the office would pay for it!
It was a no-brainer!
One teeny pink highlight for such a good cause!?  Of course we'd do it!

The process only took about 4 or 5 minutes...
Certified professionals weave the pink hair extension into participants’ hair with string, matching the extension to straight, wavy, or curly hair types of any length. The ‘highlight’ is guaranteed to stay in for at least one month, but can be easily removed by the participant at any time. Most routine hair care is appropriate with the ‘highlight’, although some care instructions are provided.
 This is our "after shot"... proudly displaying our funky new highlights!




I must say, I do feel like a bit of a rock star with pink hair!  ;)

It was for such a good cause, and since I got my highlight for free {thanks to Mr. Boss Man}
I decided to bring Ruby in to get one of her very own.






She was super excited... to say the least!

 ...and here she is rockin' NOT only the pink highlight...
but a Justin Bieber tee too... cuz that's how she rolls!

I'm Hungry

Have you caught The Hunger Games trailer yet?
                                                                              

I've probably watched it a dozen times...
... and I get chills each & every time!


 The books were ridiculously good.
From the looks of the trailer, the movie is sure to live up to my expectations...
The set, the costumes, the cast...
I think it's all going to be perfect.

The countdown is on.

32 while 32

I had a 101 list, once...
(a ‘’101 things do in 1001’’ days type of thing)
but I can't even remember half of what was on it!
It was pretty ambitious, and it's depressing not to be crossing off as many things as I'd have liked...
I’ve seen this on a few other blogs, so I thought I'd make my own, ''smaller'' list of things I’d like to accomplish this year.

32 While 32

1. Donate blood

2. Pierce my nose

3. Get a 'matching' tattoo with the hubs

4. Lose 20 lbs.

5. Reach 500 followers on my blog

6. Plan a surprise party for someone

7. Get a passport (I had one, but I let it expired! oops!)

8. Completely change my hairstyle

9. Spend an entire day in bed watching movies

10. Take a photography course

11. Complete a 500 piece puzzle

12. Go shopping in New York

13. Have our family portrait taken

14. Learn to knit

15. Get a cell phone

16. Take the kids on a train

17. Sew myself a skirt

18. Visit a 'psychic'

19. Have a yard sale

20. Ask my boss for a raise

21. Go on a trip with my sister

22. Get a plant, and don't KILL it

23. Get another kitty

24. Be in a parade

25. Get a laptop

26. Plant a garden

27. Make my own fudge

28. Learn to say ‘’I love you’’ in, at least, 10 different languages (and teach the kids!)

29. Try a completely new recipe and host a little dinner at my place

30. Go bowling

31. See a 3D movie

32. Donate to a good cause

Do you have a list?
I'm hoping y'all will hold me accountable to this!
I'd love to have everything crossed off before November 12, 2012!

ouch.

I suffered a CRUSHING blow to my self-esteem this morning.
As I was leaving the daycare, another mom asked me how the baby was doing... when I asked her what baby she was talking about, she said ''Didn't you just have a baby?'' Um... No!  

I thought that would be the end of it, then she adds... ''Oh, well when is he or she coming out?  Must be soon!?''  
Geez, woman, seriously!?  Do I look THAT pregnant?  For reals?  

I told her that I was NOT pregnant...  but then she seemed embarrassed (duh!)  so I tried to make her feel better by saying ''Oh, don't worry, I know I wear a lot of loose, flowy  tops and I have gained a little weight this year...''

Ha!
Not only to I have to deal with the fact that I'm thirty-two...
Now I have to worry about NOT looking like I'm 9 months preggo!?

What a way to start the week!
Guess this means I really do have to start exercising again...

Hey I’m Andi {Pidg} from PidgApeg…so happy to be joining in on the party of celebrating Lena’s Birthday!  Whoo hoo!

I blog about a bunch-o-nothin’.  {wink} Really, you never know from day-to-day what the topic of my post will be.  I like to think I’m building suspense but in actuality I am an easily distracted girl sorely out-smarted and out-numbered by her kids!   In order to counteract that my therapy is having 3 shops on Etsy.

PidgApeg for the softer side of jewelry
PidgApeg OutLoud for affordable jewelry for tweens, teens and young adults
PidgApeg Cottage for homespun and prim crafts

With 3 shops, 6 kids and 1 amazingly tolerant husband life is full, life is fun, and about as loud-ish hyper as you can get!

Have a totally and completely WONDERMOUS Birthday Lena!

To further the celebration
{which in my opinion should all go to Lena but she’s nice and doing a massive giveaway thingy-do}
I’m putting up one of my necklaces from PidgApeg.  It’s a soft little number, with blush & cream glass pearls on brass chain with gold findings.


Good Luck!  
And thanks Lena for putting up with me! {grin}

loves,

Pidg
