no confetti love?


no one wants the confetti?

i guess ill be forced to mix it all up and pour it into the RAKs that i mail out :)

(don't doubt me)

the RAK/drawing (see previous post) will continue a few more days... im not feeling well, and im tired, and im trying to work on Feb 1st MP site and blog so i wont be getting to this blog for a few more days. but make sure you check the mp site and blog when february is here...

for your pleasure... lol... a family self portrait at the blue jackets game last weekend! we are nice, arent we nice?

dont forget to check the post below :)


RAK post!

Here is the little thing i've been wanting to put up for a while... i have a few things to RAK :)

I hope to do these RAK posts every now and again, as my RAK pile grows. Most of you know... I'm all about mail, and getting things for cheap, or even better for FREE... and giving feels just as good!!

RAK = Random Act of Kindness

This may actually turn into more of a RAK/drawing... depending on who is interested in what.

If you are interested in one (or more) of the items pictured below... leave a comment with the letter(s) of the item(s) you are interested in (and your name of course). If you are the only person interested in one particular item... it's yours! If more than one person is intersted in a particular item, well then... all those names will be thrown in a drawing! I'd like to give one RAK to 8 different individuals, but don't be shy in listing which items you'd like, because I have no clue what people are going to want, and maybe no one will want anything and then one person could get the whole loot!

So, here are the goodies!
Below the picture, there is a short description of the items up for RAKing.
Just some things I already have, or have extra of, or haven't used (or used some of...the confetti).

Lilly is not up for dibs :)

A. Martha Stewart 2007 holiday Handmade Gifts magazine
B. Suzy Zoo new baby stickers
C. Creating Keepsakes DVD (Creative Tips, Techniques & Soluti0ns)
D. Tomato Bruschetta recipe layout made by me (5.5x8.5)
E. card kit (makes 5 very fun cards!)
F. Halloween confetti
G. Christmas and Easter confetti
H. Winnie the Pooh and graduation cap confetti

I will leave this post open through Wednesday the 31st and work on sorting out the RAKs that evening! I'll try to get the list of the winners up that night, or soon after. So, be sure to check back to see if you'll be recieving a RAK from me :) (Especially if I don't already have your address, you'll need to check back so I know how to get your RAK to you!)

Have a great week everyone!

just some pictures...

Just a few pictures to share...

It finally snowed... had to take advantage while we could :)

Miss cheese :)

Happy day to everyone!


chocolate is good.

Lilly is feeling better.
I am now sick.
Sudafed isn't doing a thing for me... so I'm going to have to wade it out.

In the meantime.... here are some happy chocolate things for when you are sick :)
or pregnant.
or anytime really.

Ferraro Rocher Chocolates

(love love love these. i ask for them at christmas time, and usually get a few! oh... and i see on their homepage that they offer them in valentine and easter packages too... of course they do.)


(always wanted to try this. it was on sale the other week, so i bought some. YUMM! loving it on mini wheat bagels for breakfast. could become an evil addiction if not used properly... like dave sticking his finger in it and saying.... "ohh, this tastes like chocolate and peanut butter." those are hazelnuts dear... thank you very much, and get your finger out of there! and upon looking for the link... realized this is made by the same company as the above candies... no wonder they tasted the same inside! and what?!? they make tic-tacs too!! i need some stock in this company.)

Mauna Loa Dark Chocolate Cocoa Dusted Macademias

(ive been eyeing these at meijer and target all through the holiday season, but wasnt up for spending $9.00 on them. went to meijer the other day, and there sits a lowly canister all by itself with the reject clearance holiday cookies. take them to the register... $2.49. YES! very delicious... another addictable item. always loved macademias... but covered in chocolate? delicious.)

Dietsch's Chocolate Covered Pretzles

(these are from my hometown... my dad gets me a 1 pound box at christmastime. once i open them, they are gone within 2 days. i am waiting to open my box until after my next OB appointment... just in case i've already gained 10 pounds since my last appointment. which has in fact, happened before. but truly... if you ever have a chance to try these... please do, you'll smile, real big.)

hope that leaves you with a little drool!
let me know if im missing any other sorts of chocolate treats :)

oh, just thought (after writing my title)... maybe this explains my complexion at the moment :)
and here i was trying to figure out my hormones.


no good TV tonight

nothing circled on the TV schedule... so i am going to blog :)

...about a bunch of random things, but maybe someone will find something interesting ;)

*speaking of TV... The OC is being cancelled. I am very sad about this, as I love a little night-time drama. But, i'll get over it i am sure. I'll just have to get the entire show on DVD :)

*love Old Navy! They have 50% off their clearance stuff right now :) Got Dave some shirts for $2, 2 pairs of jeans (one for $5, one for $10), Valentine's gifts, PJs for next Christmas (cheap cheap cheap!), some new baby gifts, and Lilly's Christmas dress for next year ($4!!). Very much like a garage sale with NEW clothes :)

*Lilly is a sicky little girl right now, but we managed to have a fun weekend. We officially moved her into her new big girl bed (and bedroom). Daddy painted the walls, and we hung up a few pictures to make it seem like it was actually a new room. Here she is the 1st time sleeping in her HUGE bed for her nap... with her boppy that I used with her for nearly a year. I'm in the market for a new one for Fin :)

*took Lilly to see Happy Feet. Very cute movie. Loved all the music. Lilly was dancing through half the movie and Fin was sqirming around quite a bit too :)

I was spelling out to Dave...
"Do you want to go to H-A-P-P-Y- F-E-E-T ?"
To which Lilly replies... "mama. don't say pee-pee"

see... she does listen after all :)

*here is the latest Fin belly picture :)

*and the last thing for tonight... another funny lilly comment that dave just told me about tonight. another comment that proves she is in fact, my daughter.

Lilly grabbed a mint off the counter, held it up to dave and says...

"I'm gonna put this back. It's not on sale."

hehehhehe. love that little lady :)


a little smile...

... got a little surprise from a dear friend, which made me smile :)

look here

thanks val!


Happy Birthday to MP!

Mandarin Pixie celebrates it's one year Birthday tomorrow!


very very exciting :) really... thank you all for being a part of this crazy crazy dream of mine!

To celebrate, I'm offering $1.00 shipping for the day!!


....and thank you to all who signed in on the last post. it's a good feeling to know that people are actually reading ;) i hope to post a little something for eveyone in the next week!!


pictures (and sign in if you are reading)!

finally switched my blog over to 'beta' or whatever blogger has been asking me to do for the past 3 months. not sure that i like the new way, but im sure ill get used to it. i actually prefer working with it in the 'html' mode... that is a little frightening.

anywho... a bunch of fun pics to share.

we have a new little one to add to our 'extended' family...
Lucas (formerly, and forever known to Lilly, as "Sporticus") was born the end of 2006! We got to meet him over the weekend... so cute!!

Here he is with his big sister :)

And again with another big fan :)
Kisses and cuddles galore from Lilly... can't wait to see how she is with her little sibling!

Made Oreo Truffles last night for Daddy's 'tailgate' party at work today.
Lilly's favorite part is of course the clean up :)

And here are my little buckeyes... getting ready for the BIG game tonight.

Starts at 8:30 pm.... I'll be lucky to make it to 10! The rest of the town however, will be a wild wild party.

(please win, cause i'm so tired of people whooping about the 2002 win! hehehhe...)

and hey... if you are here and still reading, time to sign in!!
comments to my blog are few and far between... and i'm really starting to wonder if this blog thing is really worth it!
I have something fun i want to 'run' on here... but not if no one reads here!!
Either way... Have a great week everyone :)


Baby Fin

Here are the pics of the newest little addition to our family :)

It's so amazing what you can see with an ultrasound.
These pics are basically the same... but a bit different.
Look at the little pointy nose!!

Our OB says the baby is a 'little on the big side'... hehhe.
The technician said 'this one is hard to catch' as she was looking around.
But besides that... everything looks good with the baby :)

Such a good feeling to have.
We are so blessed.

We look forward to meeting Fin in the Spring :)
