My Resolution

In 2012, I vow to live more like a Kardashian. I will not leave the house unless I am in FULL hair and make-up, including fake eyelashes and foundation applied with a putty knife. I will pretend to be bothered when the paparazzi take my picture, though I will discretely pose so that they get my best side.

I will make sure that my mom always wears sequins and has enough make-up on for a small country. And when she starts to look her age, I will tell her that she needs a face lift.

I will also wear skin-tight unflattering clothes, like the dress you see below.

I will always make an effort to wear something leopard print, even if it's just my underwear.

I will help others by writing books about my ridiculous life. I will NOT donate any of the profits from my book(s) to charity. I will think about helping those less fortunate by giving them makeovers and ONE free item from my Kardashian Kollection at Sears (on sale now at Sears locations everywhere).

I vow to make as many new sex tapes, with random dudes, as I can.

I also vow to find new and exciting ways to show off my giant ass.

Finally, I will try my best to take over the world by changing the spelling of all words that start with c, to a k. For example: I kan't wait for 2012. It's going to be a khaotic year, I hope our shows don't get kancelled. I kan't even bear the thought of that. It would be krazy!

Happy New Year!

Shopping for Others?

Why is it when you're out shopping for others, you find the cutest things for yourself? Does this ever happen to you?
I found this cute coat at Old Navy. Have no fear, it will be mine once it's marked down after Christmas. It will have a nice home in my closet.

Or this cute hat at Talbots Outlet.
Alas, I had to put both back on the rack and walk out empty handed. Although, it has gotten me excited for the after Christmas sales.
How are you doing with your shopping?

MommyParties sponsored Oral-B Pro-Health for Me

*This post was written by Kelly, a Part-time contributor on this blog*

I recently hosted an Oral-B Pro-Health FOR ME party. My party pack was geared toward the 8+ group. This worked out for me with a teenage daughter and her friends, most of whom are wearing braces. Oral health is even more important when wearing braces. The kids really liked the toothpaste. It's minty without being overpowering. One step closer to using regular minty toothpaste. Crest Pro-Health FOR ME toothpaste is now my daughter's favorite toothpaste.

In my party kit I also received a few toothbrushes for the younger children and these were perfect for our friends siblings. Also included, the movie Cars 2, popcorn and popcorn holders. These were great for the younger ones. They watched the movie and ate popcorn, while the Moms and teens chatted in the kitchen. We talked about healthy foods vs not-so healthy foods. We also talked a little about foods to stay away from when you have braces.

Harry and Brennan played the game of yucky mouth vs healthy mouth as our guests were arriving. This game helped get the younger kids talking about what you should and shouldn't eat to stay healthy and to have a healthy mouth.

Everyone enjoyed going home with a goodie bag of their own.

Each bag contained:
An Oral-B toothbrush
A full size tube of Crest Pro-Health FOR ME toothpaste
A sample of Cars Gummies multivitamins
A package of Floss Picks
A balloon
An information sheet for the parents about the different Oral-B Stages products
Coupons for future product purchases.

Thursday night I had the pleasure of seeing the Christmas Spectacular Starring the Rockettes at the Wang Theater. This was my first time seeing the Rockettes. I can only think of one word for the show: phenomenal! It was, without a doubt, the best show that I've ever seen. Every number that they did I thought to myself, "this one is my favorite." Then they'd do another number and I'd think, "oh wait, THIS is my favorite part." I said that to every number that they did. I know I'm gushing, but it really was that good.

Here's a little bit about the show:

This holiday season, THE RADIO CITY CHRISTMAS SPECTACULAR® starring THE WORLD-FAMOUS ROCKETTES® returns to Boston… and if you’ve never seen it before, this is DEFINITELY the year to go! Playing the City Performing Arts Center-Wang Theatre Friday December 2nd – Wednesday, Dec 28th!
This year’s show features brand-new scenes and songs, spectacular new sets, dazzling new costumes, an amazing 50-foot LED screen, and an unforgettable new finale!

Ahoy, Mateys! Set sail with Peter Pan, the always sassy Tinker Bell and the cantankerous Captain Hook and his pirate pals on an adventure beyond Never Land! Trek the wilds of Africa with Simba, Nala, Pumbaa and Timon as they discover the true meaning of the ‘Circle of Life.’ Tick-Tock! Tick-Tock! Don’t be late to a very important date with Alice and the Mad Hatter as they march with the Queen of Hearts’ Army Of Cards. Be sure to see this show full of memories guaranteed to last a lifetime.

The Season of Giving

If you're interested in reading my post on holiday giving from last year, click here.

I know that money is tight for everyone, especially this time of year. I'm lucky in the fact that I'm a shopping addict and I can't resist a good deal. This results in me shopping all year long for things that I put away for the holidays. This works out especially well when I want to give to charity. I have a pretty decent stash in my gift closet.

Here are some of the charities that I've either donated to or heard good things about:

Toys For Tots-I love that they have so many drop off locations. Oh and if you drop off inside the mall, there's usually a gentlemen or two in their Marine uniforms.

Christmas in the City-They are a 100% volunteer organization. Jake Kennedy and his family and coworkers work VERY hard to pull off a very big party, complete with a gift for every child, every year. They do wonderful things for local children.

Room to Grow-I haven't had the pleasure of working with Room to Grow...yet. I will make it a priority after the new year. They help families by giving them needed supplies AND support for children up to age three.

DOVE-stands for DOmestic Violence Ended. They offer counseling, support and emergency shelter. I love to give to DOVE. When women flee an abusive relationship, they often go to the shelter with nothing but the clothes on their back.

Globe Santa-Since 1956, Globe Santa has been The Boston Globe's annual appeal for needy children in Greater Boston. The Globe Santa Fund collects donations from the general public to purchase holiday gifts for underprivileged children.

If you're looking for something in your own neighborhood to contribute to, check with your local house of worship. They often have families that you can "adopt" for the holidays.

What are some of your favorite charities to give to? Feel free to leave the link to the charity in the comment section.

TMI Tuesday

It's TMI Tuesday. I'm warning you now, it's not for the faint of heart. Don't blame me if you can't handle it. You've been warned.

I have an iceberg* pimple on my chin.

*Iceberg pimples are the ones that are hardly visible to others. They're mostly under the skin and they really hurt.

Hiking at Blue Hills

This may come as a surprise to you but I'm a really outdoorsy kind of girl. When I say outdoorsy, I mean strolling around Derby Street Shoppes.

On the rare occasion that I want to be outdoors in nature I take my niece and nephews hiking at Blue Hills in Milton/Canton.

My 15 year old niece is kind enough to take turns with me carrying the backpack and she walks next to me. The boys take off and run up the mountain. Literally run. Then they argue about who has to wait for the "slow poke" Auntie Laura. Meanwhile, I'm about 1/2 mile behind them barfing up a lung from exertion. I'm grossly out of shape.

Next to the trail side museum at Blue Hills they have a few animals on display. The first one is that we see is a River Otter. That little guy loves to perform for people. They also have turtles, a couple of snowy owls, deer, turkey vultures and ducks that you can feed.

Three days after we went hiking, Harry couldn't stop talking about it. He and Brennan loved running down the hill that you see above. It doesn't look like much but walking down it was pretty intense, just ask my thighs.

In closing, if you see a blonde woman, in her early 40's, huffing, puffing and chugging her way up the mountain, don't be alarmed, it's just me.
