Dream Kitchen OR the next Hung?

Those of you that know me - know that I have been on a qwest to get some big tv show to come in and make over my kitchen! We all know that Oprah has not come through (even though I sent in my big dream over 2 years ago - an awesome video, I must say!) and that Martha is just downright LAME. Well, SB sent me a link to a new reality tv show last week. It turns out that you have to be able to travel through the end of March (so we just missed it!) Anyway, I filled out the application and was reading the 4 page agreement and came across this:

  • Applicants acknowledge, understand, and agree that
    Companies’ use or revelation of Personal Information and
    Recordings may be embarrassing, unfavorable, humiliating,
    and/or derogatory and/or may portray him or her in a false
    light. Each applicant agrees to release, discharge and hold
    harmless the Companies from any and all claims (including,
    without limitation, claims for slander, libel, defamation,
    violation of rights of privacy, publicity, personality, and/or civil
    rights, depiction in a false light, intentional or negligent
    infliction of emotional distress, copyright infringement, and/or
    any other tort and/or damages arising from or in any way
    relating to the submission of a Participant Application,
    participation in the selection process, participation in the
    Program, the use of the Personal Information or Recordings
    and/or the use of the applicant's name, voice, and/or likeness
    in connection with the Program, or the promotion thereof in
    all media now known or hereafter devised. Applicants are
    required to sign Releases to this effect. "

Don't very well want to be the next William Hung!!!!

Am I old or WHAT?!!

We got back from Portland last Sunday and then my 16 year old niece came for her Spring Break. A had a lot of fun and we worked her hard! We worked LONG hours and only saw the hotel and the drive from the hotel to the convention center. What is the deal with all the no turns in downtown Portland. We had to go way around just to turn LEFT!!!

We had a GREAT time and I learned quite a bit last week. OF course we had to notice all the HOT guys (I had forgotten what it was like to be 16!!). So the big question of the week is:

What in the world does EMO mean? I will let you in on the lingo later in the week - until then go ahead and post your guesses!

Off to Portland

A and I are off on a mother/daughter trip. We are going to be working at CKC scrapbooking convention. I am very excited that A gets to come with me this time. So, if you check back and there are no new posts - that is why!

Problem Fixed

I have fixed the black issue from the previous post by making my header a little bigger. Although, now it is a bit too big. But. . . you will have to live with that little flaw for awhile. I am just excited to have a new look!

Our little C has started a family newsletter. She thought of it and put it together all on her own. It is so adorable and I think she might have a future in this area. She has it formatted with 3 columns and each article comes equipped with its own headline and she makes use of many fonts. She is amazing! It is in a weird program though so it can't be converted. But. . . here is one of her articles regarding the PTO President (Yours truely)
"The yearbook had to be ready in ten days, so please start working on the yearbook."

Our little editor is soooo CUTE!

I have a new header and I can't figure out how to get rid of the black padding behind it! Anyone have any suggestions. I played around with the numbers under header setting but can seem to get it right. When I do preview it looks GREAT and then when I go to save it, I get the black line!

New Blogger Alert

My very long lost friends, Janie and Hill, whom I lived with for a couple of months right before my wedding has joined the blogging community. I am so excited to have a way other than the telephone (which hasn't worked too well over the years) of keeping up on what's going on with them. So, WELCOME!!!!

Mommy Necklace

I just love my "mommy" necklace. My friend Sillybug and Sandi gave it to me for helping them in LA at the CHA show. I cried when they gave it to me - never mind the fact that I hadn't really slept AT ALL for a few nights and was pretty much emotionally wiped - I have never had "mommy" jewlery! I love it!

Papa Smurf

I am not going to go on and on about where I have been or why I haven't been blogging - suffice (used that word just for you Kelly) it to say that I have been ignoring the blogging world lately. I know many of you are nodding your heads in heavy agreement about that right about now. I don't know if I will be back on track or not BUT. . . we'll just take it one day at a time!

SO - What in the world is gonna happen with Papa Smurf tonight? Is he gonna bail and do you think he broke his ribs? I thought maybe he was ok after eating pig snout last week. That just goes to show you what being hungry and having too much adrenaline can do for you! (if you are lost then that is because you aren't watching survivor!)

Let me know what you all think. I will even take comments about this subject after tonight's show.
