Quirky Me Carnival

It's time for a list of happy, quirky randomness. Because it's Spring. Because its my blog. Because I can!

1. Let's start with an easy, non-shocking one: Starbucks Caramel Frappuccino.
Come to mama you half-frozen, yummy almost-a-dessert cup o' joe! I also adore it in the little bottles that come in a four pack. Although I rarely indulge because, hellllooooooo six bucks is six bucks and I am the queen of cheap. So, when I do indulge it's a rare treat, making it all the more enticing.

2. Flip Flops
Who doesn't love a good pair of flip flops? You slip 'em on, you slip 'em off and you can show off a great pedicure. I'd wear them in winter if I could. They come in all styles and colors and they can cost less than half of a regular pair of shoes. Which is only right since they are less than half a shoe . . .

3. As a mother of three extremely noisy and rambunctious chickadees, its asking a lot to add music to the mix, but when I do this is what I turn on:
Music, Christian music, helps keep me grounded. Reminds me of who I really am and what is really important.

4. Nose studs.OOOooooOOOo! Shocking! I have a relative or two that will have a hard time keeping their eyes in their head when they read this one. But there you have it.
Nose studs are so cute and sexy. I didn't use to like them, but they've really grown on me in the last couple of years. I just like the teeny shiny ones that catch your eye when a gal is tan. I don't care for any other kind of facial jewelry or tongue studs - um, ick. But the nose studs, I like. Will I ever have one? Not if my husband has anything to say about it. And he does. And I respect him too much to go against his wishes on this. But I am not saying that I'll never bring the subject up again. Especially if I could promise him I'd look like the model above.


5. Girl Scout cookies in general, but Thin Mints specifically.

Oh, where do I start? There's the chocolate outside - score. The chocolate cookie inside - double score. And just the right touch of mintyness. Mintiness. Minty-ness. How does one spell that? I should just spell it:

    Nose stud? Hmmmm. Guess it could be worse. I just couldn't imagine something stuck inside my nose all the time. Is this a little of your rebellious side? I thought about an earring when I was younger and before it was popular but I didn't need another hole in this hard head. I guess I probably have some quirks but have had them so long they seem like the norm for me. R

  2. Hey Jubilee, have you heard of Donna Downey? Check out her blog and watch her get her nose ring, or maybe not? You just have to watch it. Ouch! a-nose-ring.html

    All I can say, better you than me, but I do agree, I like them too, just not in my nose!

  3. Christy Gale: OK I watched the video and, um, YIKES. I may have to revise my desire for a nose stud. I didn't realize that they are actually big hook lookin' things. Um, yuck.

    Okay, you had at me at Starbucks and flip flops. But then to add in Thin Mints? You are my soul sister.

  5. Flip flops... who could live without them?!

    I love the Wow Hits CDs... they are always fabulous!!

    The little sparkle of a nose ring would be pretty... but not worth the pain! :)
