It’s 2 a.m. But you’re not sleeping. And it’s not because you can’t put down your copy of Fifty Shades. No, it’s because your little lady has taken to waking up in the middle of the night screaming for mommy.
Now, while this may seem like a passive-aggressive way to get back at you for rejecting her request for a second cookie, you know all she wants is some company.
Our suggestion? A pillow with your picture on it by PillowMob.
Thanks to PillowMob, it’s never been easier to get your face on a pillow. Just pick the photo you want to use, upload it to the PillowMob site, choose your desired pillow shape (heart, oval or square), and, Bob’s your uncle, you’ve got yourself a lookalike pillow.
Have her hug on that and see what happens.

You find, walk to, buy and devour this...

A chocolate covered pickle!

Ikea + husband = bad mood

Asking your husband to "just run in Ikea on your way home" and then "sweetie could you put this together" might be a little much to ask...

Ikea vs Mr T
And the winner is

What an oxymoron an HOA sending a message for a missing goat!

So, there are only a few days left (March 1st) before Google yanks Google Friend Connect from non-blogger hosted blogs.

So I'm Giving  bloglovin' a try

I'm a little late to this dance, but so far I'm lovin' it.

Pros:  Blogs can be categorized, you can use it to follow any blog, the dashboard is clean and super simple to use and view your favorite blogs, it automatically updates when a blogger posts new content so you don't miss out on anything, it's not connected to Google, Facebook, etc., and you can even set up your account to send you a daily email of the blogs you follow.

Cons:  You have to go to another site to view the blogs you follow.  But, remember you can have it emailed to you!
Here's What I'm Thinking

There are several non-blogger blogs I adore and follow through GCF. I DO NOT want to lose track of them after March 1st! 

So, I decided to add ALL the blogs I follow, even Blogger hosted because I'm totally living in fear that Google will take it away from us the in future too, to Bloglovin' (Linky Followers is totally another great option).  If miracle of miracles happens and the non-blogger blogs I follow still show up on my Google dashboard after March 1st, awesome.  If not, I've got them all set up somewhere else and am ready to roll without missing a beat.

PS I hate Google Reader. People work had on there graphics and templets and I wanna see them just not plain 'ol text! 

Of course you can still follow through a feed or sign up for an email subscription.  Those options can be found at the top right hand corner of my sidebar.

What are the neighbors saying about Big Rich Texas

Woodhaven Country Club Estates Homeowners Shocked By Style Network’s Big Rich Texas

Style Network’s absurd notion that Woodhaven Country Club in Fort Worth is the hotspot for Dallas socialites has Texans shaking their heads. But this morning I heard from a woman who lives in Woodhaven Country Club Estates and she said neighbors are laughing more than outsiders.

I read your story about the show Big Rich Texas. I don’t belong to the club but I’ve lived about a half mile from it for over 25 years. When the show came on I looked on the internet because I didn’t believe this was filmed down the street. I called my friend that is a member and she wasn’t watching the show so I told her to turn it on and she didn’t think they were talking about our Woodhaven either. When I convinced her we had a good long laugh. It’s not a bad place at all but even the people that belong there don’t think of it as a glamorous place. My friend said she’s going to get boa feathers and fancy shoes to sit by the pool.

Another reader, a Park Cities resident, said her parents belong to Woodhaven Country Club and while it’s a comfortable place for them to visit with friends in their neighborhood, they could not imagine why anyone from Dallas would travel for the facilities.

Anyway, if you liked the banquet hall where the episode 1 fight went down, the venue is open to non-member events like weddings.

What! Not reality Tv?

Big Rich Texas

The style network is bringing Big Rich Texas back for season two!
And people, let's keep in mind as we watch this Season, that this is NOT a reality show. Style calls BRT a "docu-drama". I call it a soap opera where people use their real names but are not totally playing themselves...

From Wikipedia:
"In film, television programming and staged theatre, docudrama is a documentary-style genre that features dramatized re-enactments of actual historical events. As a neologism, the term is often confused with docufiction.
Contrary to docufiction, which basically is documentary, filmed in real time, “reality” in docudrama is filmed at a time ulterior to the events it portrays. It is based on narrative and fiction. Docudrama producers sometimes use as location for a realistic setting (fiction) a natural stage - see stage (theater) -, the place itself where the dramatised events are supposed to have occurred: it may mean a false documentary or journalistic narrative, like The War of the Worlds (radio drama), by Orson Wells."

The drama is bigger and so is the cast – with the addition of a NEW cast member!  Party planner, DeAynni, and her two teenage daughters, Shaye & Amber join the country club set and needless to say, not all the ladies are thrilled with her arrival and they are not afraid to show it. This season, the conflict between Pam and Leslie continues as Pam follows through on her mission to expose Leslie as a fraud, leaving Leslie’s relationships with best friend Bon and goddaughter Kalyn in jeopardy.

As Pam reigns at the top of Dallas’ social ladder, Leslie is more determined than ever to take revenge and destroy Pam once and for all. The drama doesn’t stop at the mothers…both Grace and Maddie are desperate for their independence and will do anything to get it, even if it means they have to lie and sneak around in the process. Whitney and Tyler return from Seattle after a painful breakup, and jealousy turns ugly when Tyler openly flirts with other girls, sending Whitney into a fury that has major consequences.

Big Rich Texas was the network’s second most-watched new series ever after Tia & Tamera, and ranked as one of 2011’s fastest growing new series across all cable networks, increasing +74% from premiere to finale among Total Viewers.
