Wednesday Randoms

How about a post of randomness? Those are my favorite anyway really.
I am so in love with this bowtie I ordered for Manny for Easter. I knew I wanted something to match Maeva's dress, so I started looking on etsy. I couldn't find anything in the fabric I wanted, so I just messaged several people that were selling bowties and asked if they could do a custom order. Lisa from LiliBug Boutique was one of the first to respond, and said though she didn't have the fabric, she'd be glad to order it and make one up for me. That was on Sunday night. And the bowtie arrived on Saturday! On top of that? She didn't even charge me extra for a custom order. This bowtie was only $10 (plus $3 shipping) and it is so well made! I have purchased many bowties for Manny - some as expensive as $30, and this one is right on par with the quality. I was not asked to write about this, but when I find a vendor with excellent products, wonderful customer service, and great price point? I feel it's a crime not to share. :) Check out her shop here, and if she doesn't have what you're looking for just convo her.

The other day I was doing our daily weekly grocery shopping, when Manny spotted this little thing on the bread aisle at Wal-Mart. Basically it's a gimmicky product, but let's be honest - those are my favorite, and I see he's the same way. It slices the hot dog up, and has a little dipping bowl for ketchup. Manny's diet would consist solely of turkey dogs if it were up to him, so this was a must. To say he's obsessed with this would be an understatement. I mean, he likes to play with it even when there's not food in it. Here it is on Amazon, but it costs more. It was $3.98 at Wal-Mart. And yes, I'm aware I'm a sucker. There's a reason I can't watch the home shopping network or infomercials.

Speaking of such, my friend Kellie told me about their Slushy Magic and I could barely get to Target fast enough to pick one up. (Here it is on Amazon if you can't find it at a store near you.) It is just a plastic cup that comes with reusable ice cubes that have salt water in them - thus the freezing action. You pour your drink in on top of the frozen cubes, then put the lid on and shake for 3 minutes. I usually go a little longer than that, and leave the cubes in it while we're eating it and that seems to help the slushy consistency. Our favorite is just pouring chocolate almond milk in. A fun treat! This thing takes me back to the days of my Snoopy Snow Cone machine. Anyone else?

Patrick gave MB a bath last night, and when he brought her out her hair was CRAZY. I knew the way it was flipping out reminded me of someone, but I couldn't figure out who. Turns out Tommy Boy. You can't tell so well in this picture but it really did. Patrick and I laughed probably way too much about it. Poor Bebe Sawyer. :)

And finally, a reminder that Proof is in the Pin will be up this Tuesday! Have you completed any of your pins from Pinterest lately? If so, tell us about it and come link up on Tuesday. More details here.

Happy Wednesday! :)


  1. He is going to look SOOOO cute in that bow tie!!!

  2. STOP IT! The slushy magic actually works?!?!?!? Dang it. I need it now.

  3. Bebe Sawyer!!! I'm dying at that comparison- she looks just like him in that pic!

  4. I love the hot dog slicer! I'm definitely going to get it for Chase, who would eat chicken hot dogs for every meal if we let him. BTW, some of the reviews on Amazon are hilarious. Similar to this item, which seems to have a cult following of its 2000+ reviews. http://www.amazon.com/Hutzler-5717-571-Banana-Slicer/dp/B0047E0EII/ref=pd_sim_hg_2

  5. Seeing Manny's tie has piqued my interest about what Miss Maeva will be wearing for Easter! I bet cuteness will abound.

    p.s. have no clue what my kids are wearing. I'm in 1st birthday party planning mode. I need to get on the wardrobe question because Easter is just 2 weeks after our party!! Aack! :)

  6. LOVE the bow tie!!
    My kids would love the slushy magic! I may have to make a trip to Target.

  7. If my kiddos were younger I would SOOO buy that hot dog slicer!
    Almond chocolate milk in the slushy magic? Oh geeze I gotta go get one now!Are y'all only Almond milk drinkers? We just made that switch.
    Awww, the memories of the Snoopy Snowcone maker!I still have mine!
    Tommy Boy and Bebe Sawyer...funny!

  8. Hayden would be so jealous of the hot dog thingy. He begged me to buy it for him at Wal-Mart the other day. It looks pretty cute, so I may have to surprise him with it. He too is a hot dog junkie!
