My crafty husband

We wanted to get some pads for Lucy and Maddie's cages, but really didn't want to shell out $100, so BJ decided to make two of them. I have to admit, I didn't have high hopes for this. But, thee of little faith was wrong! He borrowed his mom's sewing machine, bought some padding and fleece and whipped out two of them. He even added zippers so we could take the pad out and wash the fleece part.

Who knew he had a little Martha Stewart in him?!

Wordless Wednesday

Ok, so I can't be completely wordless, you all know that :) While I was off over the holidays, I whacked all my hair off. New Year. New hair. The cut really enhanced the curl I had, so instead of straightening it like my stylist did, I just wear it really curly now.

What's Your Karaoke Song?

This is perfect for me because I often do karaoke and Bon Jovi is a favorite o' mine! :) But, I am not stuck in the past. In fact, I try to forget it.

Your Karaoke Theme Song is "Livin' On a Prayer"

You believe the best things in life are mostly forgotten, and you're definitely more than a little nostalgic .
You're likely to still like the same foods, fashions, and music as you did when you were a teenager.

You have a knack for knowing what elements of pop culture people have missed, without them even realizing it.
It's great to remember the past, but don't forget that not everyone is as stuck in it as you are.

You might also sing: "Pour Some Sugar on Me," "Rapper's Delight," and "Cherry Pie"

Stay away from people who sing: "Toxic"
