Here we go.....Round 2!

Agh.  I guess I took a little hiatus.  Not necessarily the plan.  Left me feeling a little panicky like a list of things to do that never got anything crossed off of it.  Anyway...........

As promised, I'm launching my second Pinterest week for June next Monday.  I think it's going to be a good one.  I even ordered the souped up hydrogen peroxide from Amazon that I'd need for one of the experiments I plan to do.  It wasn't $1, more like $ I'd call that dedication, right?  It better be freakin' amazing because I don't know what else I'll do with 8% hydrogen peroxide (it's usually 3% in the stores--for the next time you're on Jeopardy).  I have a feeling putting that on a boo boo would send anyone through the roof.

So here we go.........

Monday: I'm going to be honest.  I'm setting the bar low for myself my first day in.  I've just gotten home from a week at my parents, Chris will have just returned home from a week in hell  Canada fishing, and the week is already crazy with Georgia going to a little backyard Bible club in the afternoons, I'm a shooting a wedding for this amazing girl, Georgia starts her first ever dance class, my mom will be in town, and we're leaving again on Saturday to head back to Detroit for the 4th of July, in addition to all of the regular everyday things that manage to take up a lot of time.  But busy is good.....I am head over heels with busy. So......this is Monday.  And I truly believe Georgia will think poking hot dogs with spaghetti noodles for lunch will be the pinnacle of fun. (There's no link for this idea on Pinterest--I'd love to credit the genius behind it so if you know of the link let me know!)

Tuesday: I am so skeptical of this one, but it looks way too fun not to try it.  I'll let you know or I'll post pictures of exploded ivory soap all over my microwave and kitchen and me having a mom tantrum because big messes in the kitchen about send me over the edge.  I'm flexible like that.

Wednesday:  This is wedding shooting day--I'm leaving at 1:00 and won't be returning until late. I'm crossing my fingers I can fit this in before I leave.  I can.  I know it.  I will. The comment on this pin on Pinterest, possibly made by someone who doesn't really own a clock, said this activity kept their toddler occupied for over an hour.  I think the last time Georgia was occupied by anything over an hour was during one of her R.E.M cycles.  We'll see.  We'll see.

Thursday: This one involves my crazy awesome hydrogen peroxide.  Again, I have high hopes and I'm banking on success.  I'm choosing to be glass half full about all these chemical reactions but I feel like without the blessings of Mr. Wizard, Bill Nye, or even Sid the Science Kid (and please raise your hand with me if he makes you want to poke your eyes out too) I might be facing an uphill climb--one with foam, and Ivory, and toothpaste, and fizzing baking powder all raining down on me.  Stay tuned.

Friday: This one's for me......and my friends.  And I'll confess, I actually made this Thursday night for a girls night here at the house.  And it's pretty much like crack.  I think.  I've never actually tried crack however.  But this candy is amazing!  Cake batter bark. And check out the rest of the site where this little confection is detailed.  It's adorable!

And to close....this little video (and I'm sorry for it being a Vimeo video--they are painfully slow loading.....I know.......start the load.....go make Thanksgiving dinner and come back......if you want to see it that's definitely a straight to video production however) that I promised Georgia I'd put on my "plog." We were making videos for daddy today and as usual--the lure of silly won out in the end.  Happy Weekend!  My very own Red Green baby comes home tomorrow (with a beard I'm sure) and I can't wait.....and watching The Vow alone right now doesn't make him being gone any easier.....know what I'm saying?


  1. I cannot wait to see how these experiments turn out! I'll be all over that 8% hydrogen peroxide if it works... looks awesome! Cute video... my girls are always making requests to go on my blog!

    1. Yeah--that 8% better be awesome! I have no idea what I'll do with a huge bottle of it. :)

  2. I'm curious to hear how the spaghetti/hot dog thing turned out. I've been seeing it all over the place and it looks disgusting.

    I'm also mildly amused you mentioned Red Green. I didn't think ANYONE knew what Red Green was.

    1. So....the spaghetti hotdog thing was actually pretty good! And......I lived my entire life about an hour from the Canadian border--so I'm all over Red Green!

  3. Love red green show! A boyfriend in college would watch it for hours. Duck dynasty is the new red green though.

    I'm going to try the hot dog thing. B is all of a sudden really into hot dogs.

    I think B played with that baking soda vinegar thing for about 35 mn, which is pretty amazing.

    how did the toothpaste/baking soda thing work out?
