really. I did.
I was going to have my first kiss over my birthday cake on the center of the dining room table with "my jake".
I was going to lead the final dance of the talent show cause "nobody puts Becca in the corner."
Did I get sent to a Saturday Detention with a totally hot wrestler name Andrew? Did I win a dance contest on national television? Did I start a commotion in a small Florida town??
no. no. and no.
But I did try to rhyme everything I said (thank you Princess Bride) and had a slight obsession with everything time travel related (Back to the Future I, II, & III).
And I had a slight obsession with an adorable white leather fringe jacket, wrestling shoes, and everything else related to Ferris Bueller.
Hands down, my favorite 80's movie. Could quote every line cold, that's how many times I waned it - thank goodness for VCRs, I probably burned through that tape more than once.
So when I saw this Superbowl commercial today, I went NUTS!!!
"Calm yourself woman."
I can't wait to see it on Sunday!!
And yes, I totally thought all days skipping school were like the one Ferris had - too bad I went to high school in rural Nevada - certainly no museums, Cubs games, or parades to sing in there!
P.S. If you know all the movies I referenced up top, you are my long lost twin!! Tell me what they are!

Which is why I juggle and can't stop.
Seriously. I can't.
Currently, I have a few balls in the air.........
I am a momma of three. (that carries a dozen balls in itself).
I am the PTA President of my children's school.
I started a DVD Photo Slideshow business called Darling Memories 2 years ago. I make awesome movies out of your pictures for all events like birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, vacations, etc.
I created a Family Travel blog called R We There Yet Mom? that features travel stories and travel tips submitted by family travel experts....you.
And I am a Thirty-One Consultant. Thirty-One has awesome totes, purses, and organizational ideas that are adorable. I just saw our spring catalog this past weekend and it's so CUTE. Never heard of Thirty-One? Take a moment and look......
So, am I looking for a pat on the back? A "how do you do it?? You are awesome!"
Sounds like it huh??
I am renewing my energy into these endeavors in a effort to make them successful (and provide a little income for our family.) and would LOVE your help. I simply can't sit still. I get a great deal of enjoyment working on and promoting the various brands I have created.
Shameless promotion? You may think so, but I see it as a fun lady (me) sharing all these unique and great ideas with her girlfriends (you). I mean, if you found the recipe for an amazing chocolate cake or a great deal on shoes, you wouldn't hesitate to share it, right?
So, I would love to share my stuff with you.......
As I mentioned, I create DVD movies out of your photos. I LOVE LOVE LOVE making fun memories out of photos and have really enjoyed helping create them for the past few years. You can find out more by visiting my website at www.darlingmemoriesdvd.com and by liking our Darling Memories Facebook Fan page.
R We There Yet Mom?
This past summer, I created a family travel blog to highlight one of the things I enjoy most....family travel. It features family travel stories and tips from my readers. I really enjoy sharing other families travel with everyone and am always looking for YOUR travel stories. If you have posted a great travel story in the past or want to share a fun adventure from your area (think museums, state parks, etc.), please let me know! We are always looking for new content.
I also host a Friday meme called "Friday Daydreamin'" where you post a picture of a place you are daydreaming about - a past vacation, a dream vacation, the best cup of coffee you ever had, a local spot you love to go to with the kids - tell us a little about it and link up. It is the easiest post you can do on a Friday!! And so fun to see all the different locations everyone daydreams about!
You can check out this amazing website by clicking www.rwethereyetmom.com. Go ahead a bookmark it and visit often. Or even easier, like our Facebook fan page to see when new content is added and visit when you see something you like - I promise NOT to fill up your facebook wall!!
Why should you do any of this?
You don't have to. I'm not twisting your arm. But as any good salesman would try........ I would love to have your support of either of my businesses. As a stay at home mom, these 2 ventures allow me to not only make a little supplemental income, but keeps my mind busy. Don't get me wrong...I love being home with my kids AND working on, writing, and promoting my 2 businesses. Keeps me incredibly happy. And your support of them keep me happy.

2 years ago I decided to make a change in my health. I ate better. I picked up running. And I used a social networking tool to help keep me accountable. And it worked......and has worked to this day.
Think about it. We use popular social network tools for keeping up with friends, sharing good news, and even finding dinner recipes, why not use it to keep in shape too??
Cafe' Well is on the forefront of this!! Cafe Well has wellness promotion and management tools on their site to keep you accountable to your fitness goals. One of my favorites is their Race to the Moon corporate wellness program. Race to the Moon offers a free pedometer that tracks your steps (through running or walking), and rewards your milestones and total steps with incentives & fun through social networking applications. Race to the Moon is only available to select Health America members - so if you are one, take advantage of this awesome program!
January is the month to do it - the month where we all have the motivation to get fit, so why not use a tool that helps keep you accountable to it?
If I could design a challenge, it would be one with all my bloggy besties - a workout challenge between all of us. Who can walk the furthest?? Wouldn't it be fun to all challenge ourselves? We have the perfect medium through our blogs to keep each other accountable! And I know there are some motivated people out there!!
How long do you think it could take us to Race to the Moon?? Who's in??
