I want to win a FLIP video camera!

Isn't it cool? Isn't it fabulous? This is what I want to win from Chic Style Modern.

I have been video-blogging or vlogging, for about 6 months or so. I have neat netbook laptop with a built in webcam. That's how I record myself. I think it is GREAT but I see so much more potential with an actual video camera. 
  •   I could record myself tweeting on my swell laptop.
  •   I could record my kids just about anywhere as long as the video camera was well-charged. (I can do that now kinda-sorta but it is a laptop) A video camera is definitely more portable.
  • I can record MORE videos for you and upload them to my laptop in a couple of minutes by plugging the camera RIGHT into my USB port. Sweet, I know! :)
  • I can record messages to my Ma and Pa.
  • I can increase my views on Youtube if I had a sweet Flip cause then I could make videos for FLIP themselves....:)
  • And the last reason I need a FLIP is so that I can record myself letting you all know how EXCITED I am to be making a video with the ULTRA FLIP.
Awesome indeed, Right?

Disclaimer: This post is made up entirely by me. I would like to win an ultra SLIDE Flip video camera from http://www.chicstylemodern.com/2010/06/introducing-new-slide-hd.html  and this is a a write-up on WHY I need a FLIP!!!
So please, FLIP, I just need a Flip video camera, NOW!!!!

Monday Minute with Ian--'Cause I'm jiggy cool like that.

Monday Minute

Ok, my fellow bloggy peeps, I have posted WAY too many times today. Sorry. I don't mean to overload your minds. I just have a lot of memes to support over here. :))

This next part comes from Ian himself:

"This week's Monday Minute is co hosted by none other than Jana, from the wildly popular, Boobies Babies and a Blog!  I mean, how awesome is that blog name, right?  Yeah I told her the same thing when I found her through the Friday Follow months back.  Now she's got quite the following, so go check her out.  The linky can be found here and over there."

BWS tips button

Ok. Here are the Q's. (what you ALL have been waiting for I know.)

1.Has anyone you've known personally lived to at least 100?
Hmm. Maybe my socks that come out of the dryer that never seem to find their mate. Yeah, I have a TON of 100 year old socks lying around here with NO mate....Grrr......Seriously, though, no one in my family has lived to be 100 yet.

2.What material possession do you value the most?
  My clothes. 'Cause the world don't wanna see my body naked. Trust me. LOL.

3.What do you think happens to us after we die?
We all get reincarnated as our favorite celebrity. Hmm. For me, I'm coming back as Sandra Bullock. If there are ever 2 Sandra Bullocks in this world, you know why. ;)
Seriously, though, if you have lived a good and honest life, then we get to live with our loved ones again in heaven. ;)

4.Most embarrassing item in your house?
  My Miley Cyrus movie I won from a giveaway I entered. I was so EXCITED to win that!!
Sorry guys, this here girl LOVES Miley. (I think it is my 10 year old's fault though.) *sigh*

5. If you could rename yourself, what would your name be?
 Lola. 'Cause it is dark and mysterious. And that is the first name that popped into my head.

That's it. Now go link up at Ian's place. K? :)

I got me some Blog love today.

I received a blogger award today. It is definitely not the first one I have received. But I am not always so good at accepting them and posting them proudly for all to see. 'Cause you see, I have Mommybrain. I forget a lot of things I am suppose to do. It is hard remembering EVERYTHING all the time.

Ok. Anyhoo, this is what I'm suppose to do.
Thank the person that gave it to me.

    THANK YOU Sweet Donda!!
I am so glad I finally found your blog! I kept on seeing your blogger profile but no blog attached to it. I was getting frustrated! But lo and behold, I found YOU!!! YAY!!!

Now I am suppose to admit 7 thing you MAY NOT know about little ole me. OK? Listen up.

1. I hate shoes. HATE them. Sandals, tennis shoes, any shoes that constrict my feet I hate. I love for my feet to be BARE all the time!!!!

2. I like chicken livers. (What? They are good. Have YOU ever tried chicken livers before? They are so yummy dipped in ketchup.)

3. I have a love/hate relationship with Twitter. Sometimes it updates and refreshes just fine, other days--I miss out on entire conversations...Grrrr.....

4. I like to listen to Miley Cyrus. Yes, Yes, I know, she sings for the tiny-bopper crowd, but I still like her.

5. I'm addicted to social media in general. (Twitter, Hootsuite, Blogging...) If I had an I-phone or a Blackberry, it would NEVER leave my side!

6. I love dark chocolate! Milk chocolate is ok, but dark chocolate for me is HEAVEN!

7. I love hand sanitizer! (Yes, I still wash my hands the old fashioned way but man oh man, Hand sanitizer is SO convenient.)

And now I get to pass it on to 10 other bloggers....Man oh man.

Here is what I'm going to to. Whoever reads this AND leaves a comment on this post, can have this award. All of you are great and AWESOME, and if you leave a comment on my blog sooner or later, you'll get a shout-out in Blogland from me. 'Cause I'm like that. Yo.

Have an AWESOME Sunday night with your families!
Later!!! :)

Getting to know ME! :)

I figured since I just started this blog in June of THIS year, (I have another blog--Cluttered Brain that I mostly post from) I wanted to participate in this Getting to know you.

So here it goes.

These are the questions. A Daily Scoop of Chaos has asked them this week. :)

 1.If you had 5000.00 to spend on plastic surgery what would you have done?  Plastic Surgery? Nah. I'd rather have the money to spend on clothes for my family and maybe an extra laptop or two. Oh, and a video camera as well! :)

2. Do you watch Soap operas and if so what is your favorite and why? I used to watch Days of our Lives back in the day, And General Hospital (but only because my momma watched it.)
3. Favorite clothing brand? I'm not picky. If it is cute, I'll buy it and wear it. I usually shop at Wal-mart.
4. An afternoon shopping spree at your favorite store or maid service for a year? Can I have both? I'd like to have an afternoon at a bookstore, Say Barnes and Noble, and then I'd have the maids clean my house and WATCH my kiddos. *sigh* That would be nice.
5. would you ever vajazzle?  WHAT? No way. I'm plenty pretty down there or so my husband tells me. Thanks anyway though.
6. Favorite Disney Princess?  I have always liked Belle. I love her yellow dress in the end. 
7. Last movie that made you bawl your eyes out? The movie UP. I loved that movie! Funny and touching.
8. Have you ever broken any bones and if so what?
I broke my wrist roller skating. I have NEVER been roller skating since. I'm too chicken now.

And that's it folks. That's me. Now if you want, you can go link up at a Daily Scoop of Chaos for the linky and read about MORE bloggers! ;)

My Other Love.

Hootsuite Twitter Client for AndroidImage by barney.craggs via Flickr
I'm not sure you all are aware of my "other" love.
*It's OK to click on the word love, it doesn't lead to any nude people or anything.*
I'll wait.

You are back?
I assume you clicked. :)

 Good. First of all, Twitter is awesome. Don't get me wrong. I LOVE, love to see everyone's colorful profiles.

But Hootsuite is DA BOMB!

 It helps you organize all your social media profiles--Twitter, Facebook, AND get this, you can even schedule a tweet to post at a certain time. This means you don't have to get on Twitter to tweet your NEXT blog post. Cool huh?
   I learned this from the master herself.
When I would have trouble with Hootsuite, getting it and all, I would tweet at the master...(Click to find out WHO the great Hootsuite master is)

"But master, How do you set up a tweet to go out at a certain time?"

"How do you RT and then add words to that tweet?"

"Why do you like Hootsuite so much?"

Yes, I still heart Twitter. Mainly for the colorful profiles, but I still use Twitter.
But Hootsuite is A TON easier for Twitter parties and for when you at a conference and you ALL are using the same hastag like #CBC10 (That was for Casual Blogger conference, a local blogger conference I went to.) Or #EVO10 (a conference I want to go to someday.)
I think you all should give it a try.

I mean you all are on Twitter right?
Please tell me you have a Twitter handle.
If you have a blog, Twitter is essential in connecting to the blog-o-sphere.

What forms of Twitter do you use?
Do you use Hootsuite? What about Tweetdeck or just plain old Twitter?
Do you have a fancy phone that you can tweet from? Lucky if you do. I just have a Netbook I tweet from.

Monday Minute with a Daily Dose of Reality

 Monday Minute

Hello there!
On my other Cluttered Brain blog I posted Monday mingle. Which is great and all but since this blog needs more posts and stuff I figured I would post Monday Minute on this blog. If that is ok with y'all. It should be.
Because it's my choice to have WAY too many dang blogs anyway. Right?

This week Ian has a co-host! (Have you met Brittany @ Not your Average Teen?
Well, she co-hosted with Ian this week. She is the cool gal that let me dance to Cotton Eyed Joe on Friday WITHOUT a Wii.

Crazy I know.

Now on to the questions.
1. Have I ever had any feelings towards any of my teachers back in the day? I am pretty sure I had a crush on  at least one of my teachers. But for the life of me I cannot remember who. I will tell you one thing, If my teacher was Mr. Benjamin Bratt I'd have a crush. Holy Moly! I'd have a crush. He can teach me anything anytime!
<---Image obtained thru Google images legally. :)

2. What is the most embarrassing thing that has ever happen to me at work?
  Hmm. Well, way back in the day I used to work at a fast-food chain called Bullet's in Virginia. They served fresh orders of yummy burgers and had some great fries. Anyway, I was cashier. One of my managers who was in his twenties, I was about 16, was extremely good-looking. I thought he flirted with me, I couldn't be sure. One time he caught me looking his direction. We smiled at each other. I was oh so embarassed! I mean, I couldn't like him. He was my manager for crying out loud! HE was so HAWT though.

3.  When is the last time I crapped myself?
  Well, first of all I try NOT to make a habit of this.  But way back when I was 18 and I used to work at King's Dominion theme park I started to drive home from work. During the ride home, I felt the stomach cramps come on. I took the highway home, but to my knowledge there was really no stopping at a bathroom. I was driving through a city late at night and I was pretty scared to stop anyway. So I tried to hold it in. The poo that is. Well, er..ehh...er...the next thing I know I had runny brown poo squirt out in my undies. I had 10 minutes to get home still.
Grr... I went home, cleaned the car, thankfully the poo had been ALL in my underwear, (maybe that is NOT a good thing) but it did not ruin the seats. Took off my underwear, threw them away in the garbage, and took a shower.  But from here on out I always stop to potty. Even if I'm on a highway somewhere. One time I pooed on the side of a major highway. That is another story entirely though. But NOT in my undies. Thank Goodness!

4. What is one thing that I always had a secret and why have  I kept it a secret this long?
Are you ready? Shh. Don't tell anybody, K? You know Cookie Monster? I am secretly in love with him. 'Cause he always has the best chocolate chip cookies EVER! And me want cookie now!!!!!

Yum. Yum. Yum. Yum.

5. What's your best advice for us coffee drinkers as to not have to poop after drinking it?
Hmm. Portable toilet maybe. Pour fiber in your coffee? (Maybe not, that might make it worse.)
I wonder why Dr. Pepper never makes me run to the toilet to poo. Hmm. I just don't know. If I find out, I'll let you know, K? ;)

Cotton-Eyed Joe and Me.

Just Dance with ABA

Well, I did it again folks. I told some people I'd like to participate in dancing to a song called Cotton-Eyed Joe. Only problem is you have to have a Wii. And the game that goes with it--Just Dance.

Well, I bypassed that by making sure it was alright with Brittany @ Not Your Average Teen. She said I could enter. So I danced to the the song, Cotton-Eyed Joe for a minute.

Take a look, Ma! No Wii, and I still can dance!
That deserves recognition all by itself I think. :) LOL.

WIMTSW with Angel and Brittany. You wanna join?


This is MY "What I meant to say Wednesday".

Starting now.
 *clearing voice*

When I decided to walk 120 miles this summer with Mama Nut I thought it was a GREAT idea. I need to get into shape. I needed to move my butt.
What  I meant to say to my guts last night regarding me being able to walk my miles:
     "Grrr. Stop. Stop cramping. I need to walk at least 4 miles today. I want to walk my miles today. My butt and tummy needs to lose the weight. You are killing me guts, just killing me!!"

    When I started Momschool this summer it was to keep my kids in line and occupied so they wouldn't whine. What I meant to tell myself about this new undertaking:
"Really? Come on. This is more time away from your beloved twitter and blogs and I just wanna quit. They don't listen to me anyway. I wanna sub. Do I have any offers to sub for Momschool?"

  When I listened to my sweet blog friend's WIMTS--Angel, I wanted to smile.
Someone didn't follow rules last week. SomeONE linked up to WIMTS and did not play by the rules.
Angel is gonna kick some butt.

What I meant to say: (to the blogger who didn't play by the rules)
   "Come on, YOU. Angel is sweet. Probably one of the sweetest bloggers I know. This is an AWESOME meme, and someone made her an awesome BUTTON, and I want to participate and I don't want one BAD apple to spoil it fer* the rest of us. Get with the program, or you might have to deal with the FIERY wrath of Angel. And trust me, you don't wanna deal with that." *I misspelled fer just because. I like it. What's it to you? It's cute and it is my NEW thing over here. Deal with it, K? :))))

Note: I have NEVER had to deal with Angel's wrath. And I hope I never have to. Her angry self scares me. Her nice self is so much better.

Did I do it right again, Angel?
I hope so. I want sweet happiness and smiles from you NOW that I finally remembered what day it was and then your WIMTSW is today. I had to post that Wal-mart gift card giveaway today. I was running out of time. :))

I think I want to call this day quits.

Do you ever feel like that?
Like you ever just want to quit and give up?
I watched a video on LDS.org the other day that was SO uplifting.
Even if you are not LDS and just Christian.
I think it still applies.
Look to the light. Good things do come to those who wait.
Never give up.
There is always something better around the corner.
Just you wait.

Hey friends!

So ya know what is REALLY strange?
I have 2 different email addresses that I can access blogger with.
So I figured if my one email address has a blog, mine as well let my other one have one too. :)

MY main BLOG, in case you get directed to this one, by accident or something, is called,
One Cluttered Brain.

I will update most of my ponderings from there.
But just in case I leave a comment on your blog from this address, my profile is hooked up to my Cluttered Brain account.

Clear as mud?

I can't stand having a blogger profile without having a blog attached to it.
AND this way I can follow more AWESOME peeps.

And everybody knows the more you follow the better, right?

And YES, I sing in my car on long trips. You have a problem with that?

:) I didn't think so.
