Thrifty Car Worked for Me!!!

This post has nothing to do with Thrifty Car Rental. :) It's just something cheesy I like to say when I sound like I'm randomly endorsing a product.

Like the other day I went off on Aaron about Clorox anywhere spray.. how you can use it on anything, around food, the baby and how I love the smell. Then I put up my thumb and said "Thrifty Car Worked for me!"... Lynzi will get it.

Sometimes I also like to say "I'd like to bear my testimony, I know Clorox anywhere spray is true".. or whatever I'm loving that day... Mormons will get it.

Here's stuff I love recently:

Chocolate Almond milk- It's made from almonds! "nuts, huh!"

I always bear my Proactiv-amony. You and me, Jessica Simpson.

Recently I bared my pre-paid legal-amony when I got cited for driving with a suspended license!! I had no idea, I swear. Hint: Change your address on your license when you move, it will save you the headache of having the "Doogie Howser" of Idaho State Police troopers almost arrest you. I swear, he was 12!

Redbox movie rentals
Sonic Diet Dr. Pepper with vanilla
Clairol Root touch-up. What can I say, I'm cheap. "No, honey, we're FRUGAL," said Aaron.
Peeps and Cabury eggs. (Hey, are Cadbury eggs smaller than they used to be??)

The Baby Who Didn't Know Mickey Mouse

AKA: We're going to Disneyland! My sister and her family are going for Spring Break, along with my parents so I decided to take Bright to the Happiest Place on Earth! I realized, though, that she'll have no idea who any of the Disney characters are. So yesterday I dug out all the free Disney Scholastic books I got in the mail, but she wasn't too interested in anything besides "The Little Mermaid". So today I went and rented all the Mickey movies I could find at Hollywood Video. I'll get that little girl ready for Disneyland! :) I don't know how much she'll enjoy, but I know I'll have a blast riding those teacups! I'll post pictures when I get back!

Warning to Readers: My thoughts are like one of those spider charts

Remember in high school English when your teacher would have you make a spiderweb chart to brainstorm ideas? I loved that! I could fill a whole page in a minute with all the different legs of directions my ideas could go.

So far, my blog entries remind me of one of those charts and I've decided to officially let it be that way. I need a place for my web of thoughts to untangle and I think this blog might be great for that! So I apologize if an entry takes an unexpected turn.

An entry about scrapbooking could turn into thoughts about religion, or a cute picture of my daughter could turn into a life lesson. Who knows?! But I've decided I'm just going to let it go there, and I don't think I'll ever go back and edit blog entries. I'll fill up an entry as fast as I can fill a brainstorming web, fast! So I guess this isn't as much an apology as it is an explanation for my random thoughts. :) Thank you!

Missing Old Friends and Mountain Dew

Rainy days always get me too introspective. Sometimes that's good, but today it has me missing old friends. I'm sure this is worsened by the fact that I've been finding old friends on Facebook and missing them, and the times we had.

Most people hated high school, but not me. I loved high school. I had the best friends, many of whom I'm still friends with today. But I miss the ones I've lost touch with. It's strange though how although I was confident in high school, I keep seeming to have these strange dreams where I'm back in high school, but I've lost the confidence I had there. I'm always lost. Looking for a class, looking for a friend, looking for a place to fit in. It makes me wonder if I feel like my adult life has become that way. I'm stuck in between the place where you're single or without kids and most of your friends are from work because all the "moms" at church don't have enough in common with you to invite you places. Now that I am a mom, most of my friends have older kids, so I'm still not quite fitting in. I wonder if that's where these high school dreams come from.

Maybe I'm just missing how free and easy things were in high school and college. Friends would come over, we'd take off in the car, have a fun Saturday or night out. Summers were the best in high school. How did my parents ever let me get away with so little responsiblity! I'm glad, though, that my memories are of long, easy-going, Mountain Dew drinking, cookie dough eating days, instead of being the one serving the Mountain Dew at the drive-through.

Here's to old friends and Mountain Dew! I miss you both!

There's Always A Reason

Now, I'm not the poster child for keeping in touch with old friends. In fact, I kind of stink at it. I've had a wedding announcement from an old roommate, Nora, in my drawer for about 3 years. It's made 3 moves with me because I keep thinking "I really want to send her a letter to get back in touch!". Now it's next to an old gummy lifesaver and a scrunchie in the junk drawer in my kitchen... just waiting.

I digress, keeping in touch with old friends isn't the reason I'm blogging, if you can call it that yet. Basically it's a big learning experiment for me. (does this thing have spell check?) I've recently made the transition from TV news to PR and some of our clients need assistance with blogs and I'm SO out of touch these days. So I need to jump in the blogesphere... (I'm sure that's a word, right?)

So here I am world, a 29 year old PR girl who is behind the times when it comes to blogging! So my second reason, is to seem hip. Now I can say, hey, check out my blog. How long will it be before people are putting their blogs on their business cards? Is it already happening?

See how much I don't know?

Don't be surprised if this blog is just me rambling. I need some kind of outlet and a way to get all this stuff out of my head, and writing in an actual journal takes too long. So there you have it, a few of my reasons.

This is a Test, this is only a test

In the event of an actual blog post, you would find creative monologue, pictures and video, and a writer who knows what the heck she's doing here. If you encounter any future posts on this site, contact your friends and alert them, because something strange has happened.
