Tuesday Tidbits

-- The other day I came across these fun homescreens at Southern Stumble. She has a couple of designs in a variety of fun colors. I love the way it makes my screen look! Go here to download them for free.

Who knew this was the WRONG way to wear a bobby pin?!
--Am I the last person on earth to learn that bobby pins are supposed to go wavy side DOWN? I saw this on Kate's blog the other day and was shocked. Since then, I've been wearing mine like this, and I swear it makes a difference..the hold is much better!

--I made some snowman pretzel sticks to give as part of Manny's teacher's gifts, but they didn't turn out quite as cute as I'd hoped. I left too much space between the eyes and the hat, especially on this one. They're all a little funky, but I suppose they'll work. :)

--I bought one of those recordable books at Hallmark that tells the Christmas story. I had my parents record reading it, and Manny just loves listening to it. It is such a fun keepsake and I love listening to it with him too. Thanks for taking the time to do this mom & dad!

--In case you haven't heard by now, if you Google "let it snow", snowflakes will begin to fall, and your screen will start to fog over. You can use your mouse to write messages or hit the "defrost" button to get your screen to clear up. (Am I the only one who can't hear the word "frost" without thinking of "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days" and "Froooost Yourself"?) As you all know, I'm easily amused (and distracted), so I thought this article telling about 5 fun Google tricks was pretty entertaining. And yep, I tried all of them. And was entertained by each. Like I said...easily amused. I am sad they did away with the Chuck Norris joke though...that was funny.

Here's to hoping this Tuesday is a productive one! :)
