Wiggles... here we come!

I first heard of the Wiggles because my niece loved to watch them.  I thought the men dancing around, singing to children were quite creepy.  But.... then Connor started watching the Wiggles.  He liked them enough to sing and dance to some of their songs.  I started to not be annoyed with their songs.  Then the twins were born.  Once they were old enough to really pay attention to the tv, I noticed that they really seemed to like them.  Colin especially.  He was so obsessed over the winter time, that we were only allowed to watch the Wiggles.  And he wanted them on all the time.  Not only that, but it couldn't be the same DVD over and over again.  He required a new DVD each time.  (Sure he can't talk, but he knows the difference between Wiggles DVDs!)  The Wiggles were on so much at our house that I would wake up at night with their songs in my head.

The Wiggly Circus is coming to town in August.  Because I am dorky cool like that, I am part of the email newsletter they send out with presale info.  I just made the leap and bought seven (5 of us, my sister and my niece) tickets. Expensive, hells yes.  But this is going to be a once-in-a-lifetime thing.  We dance to the Hot Potato CD every night after supper.  We make pretend fruit salad while Daddy cooks dinner.  Colin even requires all things he uses (toothbrush, spoon, etc) to be yellow.  (He loves Greg, the old yellow wiggle.  Not so keen on the new guy yet.)  And don't forget, in an earlier post, I mentioned how I can drive half-way to work before I realize that the Wiggles CD is still playing... and I've been singing along the whole time!

Three adults are taking a 5 year old, newly turned 4 year old (in July), and newly turned 2 year old twins (in June) to a theatre packed with a million other kids under 5.  Am I crazy?  Probably.  No.  I think they are going to have a great time. :)

You are going to have a fantastic time. We went to a show in July and it was AWESOME!!! I give the Wiggles credit... they have to be in spectacular shape to be a Wiggle. It is non-stop movement. Be sure to say hi to my Wiggles crush Sam!!! (If I'm going to watch them over and over, I'm going to have a crush!)

My kids have a love for all things Disney. Okay. I admit it. Hubby and I might have encouraged it a little. We might have even honeymooned at DisneyWorld. We are taking the girls for their first trip this month. They turned 2 in March. Probably crazy, but the very thought of seeing the excitement on their faces when they meet Tink-a-boo (Tinkerbell) in person makes it all worthwhile to me.

Book Review...and a Giveaway!!!

I was lucky enough to win an ARC of When the Rogue Returns from Sabrina Jeffries herself! I couldn't wait to read it.  After reading the first book in The Duke's Men series, What the Duke Desires, I was excited to see that this next book was about Victor Cale.

In When the Rogue Returns, Victor Cale is headed to Scotland to investigate a woman, Sofie Franke.  He has his suspicions that this woman is actually Isabella, his wife who disappeared on him ten years before.  He has spent the last decade searching to bring her to justice after she stole the royal jewels and left him to behind to deal with the authorities.  Isabella Cale, now known as Sofie Franke, has built a new life for herself and her ten-year old daughter after her husband ran off with the royal jewels.

Are you intrigued yet?

Victor and Isa's first meeting was great! Both blame the other for the missing jewels, and both are greatly suspicious of the other's motives.  Despite their renewed feelings of pas…

The Tree of Life

My name is Sarah, and it's been 11 months since my last post. I've thought about it, but life is constantly getting in the way. I even made a goal this year to write more, but it really hasn't happened yet.  Until today.

I went on Facebook this morning to check if there were any updates about the accident I saw on the way to work. Instead, I saw an obituary for a woman I've never met. But I know who she is. She received a kidney transplant a few months before I received mine.

And according to her FB page, she had a difficult time leading up to transplant, a tough recovery, lots of additional illnesses and setbacks, and long hospital stays.

I, on the other hand, never had dialysis, was on the transplant list for an unbelievable 5 months (the wait list is normally 5 YEARS), had a 3-day hospital stay, and other than not tolerating pain medication (so I could only take Tylenol which did nothing for the pain), I've been on my merry, healthy way for over 3 years.

I saw …

The Cindy Tote - A Review

I have been wanting a new work bag for, well, ever. In fact, I told Keith recently that I really wanted the Thirty-One Cindy tote, but couldn't justify the price at this time. He mentioned that since I had been complaining about this for well over two years, I could use part of our tax refund to get a bag for myself. I was super excited, but wanted to make sure it was going to be money well spent.

I emailed my wonderful friend, MB, who confirmed that yes, the Cindy tote was a great bag, and..... there was a great deal going on this month as well!

*Please excuse the cell phone pictures, our computer is still broken and I (meaning Keith and the mess that his desk) still cannot find the camera cord.

The front.  Isn't it pretty? 
And no, I swear I did not hug the bag  out of happiness when  I first took it out of the box.

The inside has one zippered pocket,  as well as three deep open pockets.   There is nothing I like more than a bag with lots of pockets.

Here it is filled with my …
