Fashion Face-off Challenge

Ok this may be the über nerd in me, but I've decided to start a challenge.  Let me know if you're even interested.
(Don't know how often I'll do it yet...maybe every other week... but I thought it would be fun.)

Here are the rules:
Every other Sunday, I (or the winner of the previous month) will post a picture of a fashion item. It might be a bag, or a dress, or jewelery...etc.

To participate, all you need do is create an outfit based on that fashion item. You might create it out of photos you've taken of your own wardrobe, or a celebrities, or easier still, find pictures on google or Polyvore (super easy!) and paste them together!
(I paste them together in paint and save it as a picture)

You'll have a week to get your outfit emailed to me.
I'll put all the outfits in one post
(so it's anonymous and easier to see them all)

So then...

At the end of the week, you will be able to vote on them and choose who you think created the best outfit!

You can vote whether or not you want to add an outfit or you are an author. Enjoy!

Alrighty, now we got that out of the way.... ON to the first item!!

--In honor of me finding a great deal on boots (that don't look anything like this... for those who were asking, I'll post pictures soon)--

I went ahead and got us started with a sample outfit. Check it out here.

I thought this ad was funny.
That guy doesn't look happy at all.

Also, I got two pairs of boots yesterday!  Yahoo!  $50 total.

Even though it's gross...

When it comes to Danica
I love getting sneezed on, spit up on, tooted on, drooled on, and (Danica's new found love) being spit on with spit bubbles...

I also love getting smiled at, laughed at, sat on, stood on, laid on, jumped on, splashed, cuddles, "talked" to, and stared at...

I love comforting, tickling, singing to, laughing with, playing with, bathing, dressing, hugging, dancing, and kissing...

...and whole lot of other things!!

Right before I posted this, Danica was standing on my lap facing out.  I turned her around and made a gasp, to be followed by a funny noise and a tickle, but before I could get to that second part, she sneezed.  Right in my face and open mouth.  I couldn't help but laugh.

I know what you should get for Christmas

One of these babies:

I love ours.  I don't remember if we got it as a wedding gift or not, but we've had it for a while now.  It preheats in just a couple minutes, cooks in just a couple minutes and you can make two sandwiches at a time in it!  The sandwich edges are sealed closed (forming a pocket like center) so you can put all sorts of things inside.
For the last month or so, I've, unhealthily, been using it almost every day for lunch.... making grilled cheese pizzas, grilled turkey and tomato sandwichs, I've even grilled pineapple on it for a grilled ham and cheese with grilled pineapple sandwich... so good!  Next I'm going to try a banana and peanut butter sandwich. 
I'm sure there are nicer/fancier machines that if you wanted to do more things with would be better for you.  Just an idea.

For those of you who already use something like this, what are your favorite recipes or ideas of recipes?

Uh oh

So, how bad is it to dance with your infant while you're singing Bootylicious?

I sing all the time to Danica, but I've noticed lately sometimes I'm not picking the best song choices.  Haha. 
I sing nursery rhymes and primary songs, I make up my own songs, and recently I've been singing Christmas songs.
Yesterday I was singing Baby Beluga and substituting in Danica's name instead of "beluga."  I couldn't help but laugh when I sang, "Heaven above and the sea below, it's the little white...girl on the go."  I stopped singing cause it didn't seem quite right.
Mostly, I don't care, but today I was talking to and joking about it with Tyler and, because of our conversation, for the last few hours I've had The Thong Song stuck in my head! (That thong th thong thong thong...)
Luckily Danica doesn't really know words yet... just sounds.  Haha. 

I think pretty much every situation in life I can relate to a Friends episode and I was reminded of this one.

Also, on a finer note, Danica turned 4 months old today!!  Yep, time flies!  

Here's the cutie!
