Wednesday Hodgepodge and other blog hops

1. Sunday was the first day of spring. So they say. Ahem
What is your favorite outdoor springtime activity?
I love getting outside and walking to the parks!

2. Who would you want to come into your kitchen to cook dinner for you?
Well, it would be neat to have Rachael Rae, but my hubby is a great cook to so he treats us often! 

3. When was the last time you flew a kite?
um... I dont know the exact date but it has been a long time.  I think a few years ago I did it with my nephews. 

4. What topic puts you to sleep faster than anything?
Most conversations on politics.

5. What flowers do you associate with specific people, places, or events?
Well, pink roses remind me of my mommy.  I miss her!  

6. What significant historical events took place during your elementary school years?
I was a senior in HS when 9/11 happened.  I remember being in my weight lifting class and we had the radio so we knew before anyone else knew.  It was heart breaking.  
I also remember Hurricane Andrew!  

7. Do you swear? Do you pseudo-swear? (you know- crap, shoot, friggin' ?)
No swear words, but I will say crap and shoot.

I was teaching high school when 9/11 happened. I thought the kids were pulling my leg to get out of taking a quiz that day. Boy, was I wrong!

I was working at a doctor's office and we had our first patients of the day underway when we were told what had happened.

I was the Director of a Preschool when 9/11 happened...we had no idea. We were waiting on the xerox guy to come in from the parking lot and fix our machine and we couldn't figure out why he was sitting in his car. He came in and let us know. After 9/11 the county gave all the schools emergency radios.

I live outside NYC now...its still so sad to walk by the site.

Glad you joined in the Hodgepodge today...didn't mean to be Debby Downer there in my comment!

My children were in elementary school when 9/11 happened. I was stuck in the beauty parlor getting highlights. I could not get out of there quick enough to get to the school and just be with my kids during lunch. It was one of the saddest times I can remember.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
