I have always been a bit unsure of all this online stuff... myspace, facebook, blogging, twitter and other online social networking sites. It's taken me a while to warm up to the blog - mostly because I have never wanted to be impersonal, but haven't wanted to give too much of my life to strangers. Because, let's be honest here, we definately spend more time reading blogs of people we haven't actually met than of our close friends.

Today, while I was on twitter, (which I still don't really get, except that I may have "met" some business connections today) I clicked on a link about what has been happening on facebook. SO DISTURBING!!! Here's the link:,2933,494064,00.html I am so glad that I haven't gotten into that!

Now don't get me wrong, I've heard of several friends who have been able to find people who they haven't been in touch with for a long time and in that respect, I think that the process is great. But, I'm so glad that I know what I know now before getting on there. I have a friend (whom I LOVE!! Hey Tracy!!) and she had asked me to get on facebook to catch up with high school friends. Am I curious, sure. Would I love to get in touch with people again, sure. But do I have the time to really interact with everyone I find or everyone who finds me? not so much. I can barely keep up with regular email with the people I see all the time!

Am I saying that I will never do facebook? no, I'm not saying that. What I'm saying is that I'm so glad that I saw this article first. Now I will be so much more careful - especially with regard to personal information and photographs.

I hope you read the article and become more aware!

I Just Can't Help Myself!!

My daughter has REALLY been into dressing up and is turning into a real fashion icon :) The part that has been difficult is that she has been completely stripping her closet and when we go into her room, we are finding all sorts of partially worn clothing items strewn around. Most of the time it's cute and she's been coming up with some crazy outfits. Other times, I just want to curl up in my bed and go to sleep - so much time to sort through everything and figure out what is really dirty.
But... this morning she has been a doll :) It's still rainy and windy outside and my little one is definately an outdoor kind of girl (don't let the tutu fool you!) and it has been REALLY hard for her to stay inside. So when she started picking things out of her room to put on, I just let her.
And this is what she came up with: red long sleeve shirt, mom's under-roos (anyone remember those) that my mom had saved, boys Cars underwear (that you can't see - it's a shame too), the tutu, mismatched socks and white patent leather shoes from last Easter that really don't fit anymore (but don't tell her that)!!! Just remember this girl... she'll be all over the front pages of many a magazine when she gets older - I just hope it's not all over the "Worst Dressed" list!!! :)

A New Review!

I'm so excited about this review! It's only the second one that I have done, but it was great working with Joanna (and the review was fabulous)!! I am eager to do a contest with her to get even more traffic to my site and think that it will be a good way to get the word out. Here's the link to the review:

Check it out!!
