Veggies, Fruits and Nuts . . . Oh My!

So, I've neglected the blog for far too long, and now I'm about to embark on serving as a Girl Scout cookie cupboard for hundreds of girl scouts and I'm not seeing a light at the end of the tunnel!  How do I get into these things?!

At any rate, I received an e-mail several MONTHS ago from someone wanting to reach my audience.  I explained that my audience is small and mostly my friends and family.  And, despite my warnings of my irreverence and inappropriateness, the woman below still wanted to associate with me.  And, I thank her for her extraordinary patience as I have been taking so long to reply to her inquiry.

Today as I am still recovering from a particularly traumatizing trip to an unnamed cafeteria style restaurant that I was forced to go to at the birthday request of the Ego (middle child), I thought I should share the blog post below.  And by the way - props go out to Nana and Sir who also endured this trip despite our warnings that they did not have a wine selection and even if they did it would be of the box variety!  I don't think they'll be joining us for any more birthday dinners.

Hopefully you can find some interesting tips and ideas below.  And no, she is not irreverent or inappropriate like I am, so you get a break from that for once.  But, never fear, the Ego's birthday party shenanigans will be posted soon . . . as soon as I unbury from the 1200+ cases of cookies in my garage which, ironically, is the very reason that articles like the one below are so important.  :-)

Twas the second day of the year . . .

. . . and Mommy is just now recovering from ringing in the New Year in Las Vegas.  I will say that I'm not sure what was more shocking - seeing Elmo smoking behind one of the hotels as we drove up, or being greeted by the 46 degree weather when we opened the car door.  I had no idea that the casinos have made a deal with the devil so that in the summer you are melting and in the winter you turn into a popsicle, thereby ensuring that you are always indoors!

Rather than share resolutions that we all know I am going to break within 15 minutes, and before we get too far into 2013, here are my 2012 holiday lessons - at the very end are the 11th and 12th days of Christmas Shenanigans - need to include those so I can find them next year.  :-)
