Just some nonsense and stuff

Another not so busy day for me. Ella started her first day of preschool today (it's her second year) and it looks like she's going to enjoy it once again. She woke up really excited and then a few minutes before getting into the car to go, she panicked. She was still exclaiming that she wasn't ever going to school again until she saw her teachers and then she was all smiles and showing them her new shoes and outfit and snack box. So it was fine. Aidan figured she wanted to go to school too. Next year. So here's Ella in her new outfit looking pleased as punch:

I spent some time lining up coffee dates with friends I haven't connected with in a while. The beauty of being a stay at home with other stay at home moms!

Okay this is really, really funny. I got this email today about a public bathroom in Houston. If you've seen it, sorry, if not, enjoy!

Bathroom on the outside:
View from the inside:
Could you use it? I couldn't. Talk about stage fright! It's made of one-way glass. No one can see you from the outside, but you can see EVERYTHING from the inside. Crazy. Who comes up with these things?

Here's a meme that I thought looked fun and I was bored, so I did it. I think I found it over at Dedee's.

1. YOUR ROCK STAR NAME: (first pet & current car)
Cat Saturn (Wasn't sure if they wanted the pet type or pet name...if it's the latter then my name would be "Tiger Saturn")

2.YOUR GANGSTA NAME: (fave ice cream flavor, favorite cookie)
Vanilla Chocolate Chip (not very gangsta-y if you ask me)

3. YOUR “FLY Guy/Girl” NAME: (first initial of first name, first three letters of your last name)
Ewie (what the?)

4. YOUR DETECTIVE NAME: (favorite color, favorite animal)
Red Puppy

5. YOUR SOAP OPERA NAME: (middle name, city where you were born)
Joanna Winnipeg (yeah, that's just weird!)

6. YOUR STAR WARS NAME: (the first 3 letters of your last name, first 2 letters of your first)
Wie-Er (add an "n" in the middle and what do you have? Hee, hee)

7. SUPERHERO NAME: (”The” + 2nd favorite color, favorite drink)
The Brown Water (why is it brown? Don't answer that)

8. NASCAR NAME: (the first names of your grandfathers)
Cornelius Isaak

9. STRIPPER NAME: ( the name of your favorite perfume/cologne/scent, favorite candy)
Vanilla Turtles

10.WITNESS PROTECTION NAME: (mother’s & father’s middle names )
Isaak (my mom doesn't have a middle name, so I guess I'd just be a one-name person like "Madonna" or "Cher"...except that Isaak's a very masculine name)

11. TV WEATHER ANCHOR NAME: (Your 5th grade teacher’s last name, a major city that starts with the same letter)
Peters Paris

12. SPY NAME/BOND GIRL: (your favorite season/holiday, flower)
Summer Magnolia

She's a cutie!!

I love that bathroom. I went to one like it in FL. (Then later saw it on Top 10 Bathrooms on the Travel Channel.) It was in a candy shop and had see thru doors until you locked it, then they clouded up. FREAKY.

That meme is HILARIOUS. Yours worked out perfect! I tried mine and they were not as funny! I still might post them. If I do, I'll link to you!

that "loo" reminds me of our honeymoon. we stayed in this romantic little spot on galiano island. nothing but trees surrounding us. BUT THE had these huge huge windows WITH NO CURTAINS. even though there was probably no one took some careful concentration to do any sort of business in there. :) (especially at night)

Fun! I enjoyed reading yours. I like your hippie name. Mine would be Oatmeal Cypress. ;)
