Tried again on Christmas Day but I couldn't even talk Mr. Sasha into posing again at first.
In fact, we don't even remember the last movie we saw at the theater together. The second National Treasure movie? Wedding Crashers? Friday Night Lights? Hell, who knows. At the very least, it was my birthday last year.
I chose Four Christmases. We've been Vince Vaugh fans since Swingers, and this was no disappointment. I also love Reese Witherspoon (my FIRL should already know this....).
Fabulous movie! We absolutely loved it! I will definitely be buying the DVD when it comes out. Because that's what I do- buy my favorite movies and TV series DVDs and let them gather dust on my shelf. But should I ever have some free time to watch DVDs.... I'm set!

Anyway, that night I asked Mr. Sasha to take a picture of me using the koozie so I could post it on the blog, and here's the result.

- Your neighborhood IGA
- Wally World
I was just about to stop at The Waffle House and ask if I could purchase 3 eggs, uncracked, when I spied an open store! Yay for Braum's!
But really, you should let your employees spend the holidays with family. People like me who forget about buying eggs deserve to have to think outside the box and head to the waffle house.

The Politician's teacher stopped Mr. Sasha the other morning to tell him this story:
On Tuesday, at the end of PE class, Ms. P asked the kids to get in line to say Merry Christmas to Coach K since it was the last time they would see her before the holidays.
The Politician was second to last.
When it was his turn, he went up to Coach K and said, "Merry Christmas Coach K. You're hot."
When The Wild Child starting walking well (running!) we moved from Pedipeds to See Kai Run shoes. For some reason I just couldn't see how it was good to jam those little box feet into tennis shoes or something sturdy. See Kai Run shoes are fabulous because they have flexible soles, but still offer some support.
Right now Amazon is running a great sale - some pairs are marked down to less than $20 (from upwards of $40) and of course, free shipping on $25.

P: Momma, Sissy made me fall in the playroom, and my head was about to crack open, but Daddy put some ice on it to keep it from cracking open. There's a bump there, but you probably can't feel it because it's under the barnacles.
Sasha: You mean the follicles?
P: Yeah, that's it. That's what our hair grows out of.

But I realize that I don't actually get to paint my nails very much right now, since I'm chasing two small children around and trying to work full-time somewhere in there.
But what about a group blog for those of us moms who love to do manis? Each time we paint our nails, we can post our NOTD (or NOTW as it mostly like is) and banding together, we can be a nail blogger!
Let me know if you'd like to be a contributor! Hopefully I can paint my nails again tomorrow and snap a better shot for a header.
Check it out and let me know what you think!

The other day I was laughing with Chic Runner about the fact that in just a few short weeks, I'll be crossing into a new age range for my 5Ks. I'll be moving from the 30-34 range into the 35-39 range, and we laughed about the fact that if I can't beat the 30 years olds, maybe I've got a better chance beating the 39 year olds.
But I was just on Sephora, and their age range for their reviewers is 35-44!
That's crazy! I'm not like a 44 year old! I'm just a baby! My beauty issues certainly aren't the same as someone in their mid-40s! That certainly needs to be recitified. You all know how much impact I have on companies and their websites. Come on Sephora, you need to change that. I suggest 35-39 and 40-44. Much better.
All of the sudden, I am realizing I am getting old.
Yesterday I squeezed in enough time to paint my nails before I got on the treadmill. Of course, I once again forgot to get out my OPI Correct and Cleanup Pen before I got started, so I couldn't fix that spot on my middle finger. And my cuticles need some moisturization, but cut me some slack. At least they are pretty! I really like this color a lot. I felt the need for red since we are just 8 days or so from Christmas!

I’ve been a good boy, but The Wild Child hasn’t been tonight, because I was eating my food and she wasn’t and she didn’t get a treat.
I was hoping you could bring me some toys.
And the toy that I wanted was the Little Einstein rocket (check!), and the Diego mountain (check!), and the Tigger and Pooh Changing Tree (check!).
And these candies that I have in this thing (envelope): Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Absolutely Divine 70% cocao, Hershey Kisses, Hershey’s Miniatures, and Absolutely Divine 30% cocao. (For some reason he cut all these little pictures of candy out of the CVS flyer and that's what he is referring to....)
And The Wild Child would like her own purse (check!) and her own play makeup (check!). And she would like a Barbie house (got a Dora house). And a Princess castle (got the vanity- that should qualify as "princess").
Daddy needs a new shiny golf club that looks like shiny Christmas lights (he did actually just order a new set of clubs).
The Wild Child wants a pink oven (she already has the Rose Petal Cottage oven, so no new oven).
Momma wants new shiny makeup and a new purse that she can carry all her makeup in.
I want to give two of my firetrucks away and get a new one.
The fireman hat I have pinches off some of my hair so I need a new one.
We will have some of those peanut butter cookies with those chocolate chips on them.

Being a mom, I said, "P, do you need to go to the potty?"
P said: "No, I'm just ticklin' it a little."
Friday, December 12, 2008
Got this for $10- P is probably too young, but possibly in the car if I tell him what to look for, it'll keep him occupied for a bit
Got this for $10- I can always use it as a birthday present for one of WC's friends
Got this for $12 yesterday, possibly for my nephew
Got this for my mom for $17- she loves this show! (The first time she asked me about this show, she said, "Is Kim Catrell really nekkid in this show? I really like her and maybe I want to see this show.")
Got this for my nephew for $18 yesterday, and it's already gone down again!

This is pretty cute.... and I need more gifts for WC since the poor thing's bday is Jan 3.
This is $18, down from $43, and qualifies for free shipping over $25.
Do we think this is cute? Not sure about the collar- does it fold down? But it's only $29, down from $115... and ships free.
And if I didn't already have the RPC, I'd be all over this... $60 down from $200- it's $180 at Target right now.
The Melissa & Doug dollhouse dropped again to $50.
This might make a good birthday present stash gift... $10 down from $30.

You know when you see those posts on the BHB that say "My Christmas crack didn't set up right! What did I do wrong"?

My blog crush Katee uses CND Solar Oil, which I haven't tried.

The Dora Home I got for WC (paid $70 at Target using a $10 coupon) is now down to $53 with free shipping at Amazon!!!!!!! What a great deal! I'll be taking the one I already have back to Target.
And P has been talking about the Little Einsteins Rocket for a week. I saw it for $40 or so at Walmart and resisted today. And now it's $22 and free shipping from Amazon!
Think of all the makeup and nail polish I can get with the money I am saving!!!!!

The Politician was pretty funny. He and his buddies to the right and left cut up quite a bit- tickling each other with the feathers on their wings. He knew I was watching him and shot me this look.
The Wild Child pretty much stole the show. She's the oldest in her class by 4 months or so, and she knows all the words to Jingle Bells, and loves to sing loudly, so they stuck the microphone right in front of her and she pretty much did a solo.
We are off to watch the Big 12 Championship on campus (Boomer!). We are kid-free tonight since we sent the kiddos home with my parents after the program, so Mr. Sasha and I plan on having a good time!

Rose Petal Cottage is half price at Amazon with free shipping.... WC loves hers. This would make a fab Christmas present.
Edited to add: Girls, this is now down even further to $30! (The regular price is $80! This is a fabulous deal and the item is definitely worth getting at $30!)
Edited again to add: As of 12:51 pm CST on 12-4-08, it's back up to $60! Maybe it will go back down.... I can't figure out Amazon and their pricing these days!
Most likely I will be taking the Danae back because it shows a little much toe cleavage for my taste. But the Stephanie is adorable and quite comfy. And she matches my newest Coach purchase.

Champion Globe Mary Jane - $22.99
They are having their BOGO half off sale, so I only paid $11.50 for the brown mary janes (note: I wore a half-size smaller in those than the tennis shoes). If you happen to buying online from Payless, don't you dare forget to go through ebates- you'll get 3% back.
I also picked up some movies at Target: Season 3 of The Office for $14, Devil Wears Prada for $4, and Christmas Vacation for $4.
Before you judge me, I did do a little bit of shopping for others. At Walmart, I got a Cabbage Patch baby for $10, and princess fleece pullover for $4, and a princess backpack for $10. These will probably be part of WC's brithday present.
I should also tell you that my big toe got run over at Walmart at 5 am by a crazy lady and her cart. I haven't taken my polish off yet, but I'm relatively certain my toenail was somewhat damaged. We shall see......

I think you are pretty skeevy. In fact, this picture makes me feel like I need to go wash my eyes (and that's why it's so small- I hate to subject Sasha Says readers to such nastiness, but I need to make sure they know where I stand on this....).
God Lord, girls, you are SISTERS. That's just wrong on so many levels.
Also, if GND continues with you as the main characters, I definitely won't be watching.
Just in case you were wondering.
