I want it in PINK, duh! :) It retails for about $149, but I found it on Walmart.com in white for $99, and on Amazon.com in pink for $118! Can't beat that, and both those sites you can get free shipping too! What a deal! It's on my wish list for my birthday this fall! Or if any of you want to buy me a gift, I'll take it! ;)
So for this week's Fantastic Friday post, I thought I'd share with you some of my all time favorite site/ resources online.
3 Sites I visit daily:
1. Twitter, if you don't know what this is go there. experience. have fun. Find me here.
2. Facebook- nuff said!
3. Blogger, my host for my blog. Where I write and read up on all the blogs I follow!
http://www.amazon.com/ - love, love Amazon! Everything from books to camera stuff!
Maybe you'll find something you love about these sites too! Happy Friday everyone!
*Disclaimer*- Fantastic Friday posts are for fun only. Nothing about Hubby or Family. They are fun related!

I've watched this show from the beginning. Orion and I love this show. We've always said that we relate most to Jon & Kate as a couple.
Tonight was the premiere episode of Season 5 of one of my fave shows Jon & Kate Plus 8. I've been looking forward to this for weeks now, but in light of tabloid rumors and all that's going on with this family I was truly sad as I watched tonight's episode.
You could see that both we're frustrated, hurt, and probably angry at a lot of things. I felt sad as I watched them talk about how they are 'doing everything' for the sake of their kids, and how they barely spoke at the sextuplets 5th birthday party, and how they didn't know what their future holds.
I agree their personal lives concerning the issues surrounding them are personal and should stay that way. I choose not to believe everything I read, but hearing them talk tonight I wish, hope and pray that they can work it out. Not only for the 'good of their children' but because they love each other and want to make it work. I believe love conquers all, and if you want your marriage to work it can.
I won't pretend that I have a clue what they are going through or how their lives have been impacted by this. I don't. I can only imagine how they feel or how I would feel having people invade my privacy or take pictures of my children and be so invasive.
People say, they brought this upon themselves. But, I don't think anyone expects this kind of thing. No matter, if they are on t.v. or not. I think we have to remember that they first and foremost were and are, a regular family that just were trying to tell their story and capture memories for their children.
Who asks for this? No one, I'm pretty sure of it.
I found this photographer when I joined Flickr, a photo sharing site where you can post your photos get feedback, and see others work. I stumbled on her photographs totally by accident and I've been hooked on her work ever since! She hails from San Diego, CA and does anything and everything from weddings, children, and her specialty being Boudoir photography. I was a little skeptical at first of Boudoir shoots. Honestly, because I'd never seen them done well or tasteful at all. But after seeing her work, I'm a believer now! She's amazing at what does does, and truly brings out the beauty of her subjects in such a tasteful way. I'd love to one day have her take my photos for the Hubs!
I love reading her blog on a weekly basis, and I've learned so much from her work. Mostly about being daring and taking chances as a photographer. She always has some of the most creative things, and I love that part! If you are every in the San Diego area you have to give her a call to do your photos, check out her blog and see what I'm talking about!
Happy Monday Everyone!
Now, I've seen these sitting on the counter for a while now at Starbucks, and I always looked at them and thought I don't know half these artists, I probably wouldn't like their music anyway. But after a couple weeks of downloading the tunes I've decided that it's cool and fun seeing each week what you'll get, and you never know you could be introduced to something you really love! Plus, being FREE only helps this cause!! And, remember I love free!
52 weeks/ year = 52 FREE songs a year from iTunes! How can you beat that?!!! Guess what? Tomorrow is Tuesday, there will be a new song to get. Stop in, grab a card, get free music!

Disses, to the lady who pounded on my trunk in rush hour traffic yesterday! People need to learn to use crosswalks instead.
Disses, to the crazy wind we had a few days ago.
Disses, to snoopy people in my neighborhood! People seriously need to mind their own!
Kisses, my Mom bringing my little niece w/ her this weekend! What a surprise.
Kisses, to my Mom being here to help me.
Kisses, to my Hubby who was sick a few days this week. I love taking care of him, and glad he's better now.
Kisses, to Friday movie night w/ Hubs, and the fact he lets me rent the girlie ones!
This time last year we were hosting a house warming party, and now we're packing it up.

Anyone else love reality t.v. as much as I do? (just throwin' that out there) Pretty sure my Hubs is annoyed with it! :)
I took this cute little pic of my nieces a few weeks ago while I was at home. There's so much freedom in childhood!

Gilles & Cheryl
Ok, I love Cheryl. It's not so much as I like Gilles, cause honestly I really could care less about him. I just love her, she's my favorite Pro dancer. So I'd love to see her win. If she wins it'll be her 3rd win. The most anyone has ever won on the show! That would be awesome.
SO, I am torn between; My Iowa girl, My fave Pro dancer, and the girl that came out of nowhere, Melissa! Since I love them all I'll be happy with whomever wins!
Over all, I want Melissa to win!
Watch & See what happens tonight!
Ok, enough about that. So I didn't start watching The Bachelorette till about 9 pm, which was fine because that first hour I could have cared less about seeing. Right now, it's to early to tell but my head was spinning with 30 guys! How does she remember all their names? I think this every season. Does she have an ear piece in, that gives her all the names? Not sure.
So catching the show near the end, I only really saw her choose the guys she was going to keep. And the guys who left, that were not so excited. Fave line of the night;
" I guess she doesn't like awesome guys." - rejected guy from last night
Who says that? Seriously!
Anyway, the show highlights for the season left me thinking that these Bachelors trying to win her heart have more drama than the girls who were trying to win Jason's heart last season! What's with the possible guys having girl friends? Who knows, but we'll see.
I've boycotted The Bachelor, but I love Jillian so I'll tune in for the next few episodes to see what really shakes down on this show.
I hope Jillian is the Bachelorette that finds love, and restores America's belief in this show! :)
Orion & I with Shawn.
