And, here are the bloggers I'm tagging...
In 2002, two rival Olympic ice skaters were stripped of their gold medals and permanently banned from men's single competition. Presently, however, they've found a loophole that will allow them to qualify as a pairs team.Will Ferrell was great as the leather clad sex addict, Chazz Michael Michaels and Jon Heder's performance as the protected and naive Jimmy, aka Little Orphan Awesome was just that, awesome. I really enjoyed this flick much more than I expected. If you like comedy, check this one out & I hope you like it!
Oh yeah, if you check out the extras, you can see American Idol runner up, Bo Bice singing the theme, "Blades of Glory", too. Just in case you've already seen the movie, here's the music video along with a sneak peek at the movie...
The North Face gear is some of the best cold weather gear out there; and while checking out the selection of gear at breckgear.com, I was impressed with their offerings . The North Face Jackets are available for men and women and offer warmth in the coldest of temps while providing style and comfort.
The North Face Breckenridge was selected by the Breckenridge Chamber of Commerce as Business of the Year proving that they'll provide you with the personalized friendly customer service you deserve. They are committed to answering your questions and making your shopping experience with them a success. The site is easy to navigate, with clear images and descriptions of the products including photos of available colors. The prices are reasonable and with the free shipping for orders over $50, that makes ordering from them even more attractive. Check out The North Face Breckenridge online for your North Face needs.
I still had a lot of stuff in the garage that was left over from the garage sale back in August. I know it's been there for awhile, and it would've been gone sooner, but Brittany and Scott asked if they could take it to the flea market to sell, but that never panned out. So, I horsed all that stuff into the back of the 4Runner and hauled it downtown to a little place called The Helping Hand. It's kind of like the Goodwill store in that you can donate and shop, too.
I dropped off my donation, then went in the store to take a quick look around. They had all their sweats on special, probably because it's still 80+ degrees here. You could get mix and match sweats, exercise clothes, sweaters and/or sweatshirts four for a dollar. I bought myself a pair of nice corduroy casual pants that looked new, a nice light blue Hanes sweatshirt and some under armor pants to wear when we go fishing. I bought Brittany a pair of track pants and a pair of stretchy dress pants, too. The total came up to a whopping $1.60. Cool!
I left there and ran by to pick up a few things from town, then back home to clean up some more. I took everything off the counters in the kitchen and scrubbed them down, dusted the den, living room and bedrooms, and cleaned out the fridge. The dryer went on the fritz on Tuesday, but Jimmy and I were too busy to do anything about it, plus we couldn't take it to the repair man because of his truck. So, Chris came by and helped me unhook the dryer and take it out to the garage. There was lint and about 3 bucks worth of change under it, so I cleaned that up and then took the dryer apart. It looked like the belt was bad to me, so I made the decision to get a new one as soon as Jimmy got home. Our laundry was so far behind - if I skip doing laundry for more than 2 days there's at least 3-4 loads to be washed.
I cut the grass and when Jimmy got home about 5, he broke out the weedeater and did the trimming. We washed up and went to Lowe's to pickup a dryer, then he and Bryant brought it home and hooked it up. I'm planning to wash and dry clothes til the wee hours of the morning, and by Sunday afternoon, I should be caught up and looking for stuff to wash. The new dryer doesn't seem to take as long to dry the clothes - especially towels and jeans, so I think even though we spent some money, we'll save on energy in the long run...
We did a lot more around the house, but I'm too pooped to post anymore...
We got to Tammy's in time to get a hug from everybody, then we went to the party at Salem Pizza. It's not far from Tammy & Bryon's house and she wanted to have the party there instead of having everybody over to her house so she wouldn't have all that prep before and cleaning afterwards. Being a working mom myself, I know just what she means and thought that was a great idea.
The food was really good - We all thoroughly enjoyed it! We had cake and Alaina opened her gifts, then the kids played awhile and Nate had a ball playing with Seth and the gang. Once all of Alaina's friends were picked up, we went back to Tammy's to sit back, relax and catch up with each other for awhile. Nate had a ball playing with Seth's fancy, souped-up cars and trucks, and 'playing' Guitar Hero.
We reluctantly had to go home, and it was funny because all the way there, Nate was saying he wanted to go home, but when we were going to the car, he started saying, "I wanna stay here." He had a ball and it was so good to see everybody.
Happy Birthday, Alaina!
UPDATE: At the request of the advertiser I made the video for, all the videos for the opportunity had to be taken down. That's disappointing because this was my favorite video I've done to date. It's a good thing to know I can make this type of video and I learned quite a bit, so that's a good thing...
This sport is expanding and growing and this just proves that things change…
I visited a website today that may end their search for the perfect painting. Masterarts.com offers Hand Painted Portraits from photographs as well as hand painted reproductions of famous masterpieces. The price guide for both types of paintings is affordable and they offer a stretching service so that when your masterpiece arrives, you can hang it immediately. Imaging having a quality oil on canvas reproduction of a Van Gough, Rembrandt or Monet masterpiece. Be it a gift or for your own enjoyment, Master Arts hopes to provide a masterpiece that will be treasured for generations to come.
