Oh nuts, it seems the public has a bone to pick with IKEA

My beloved IKEA is in the news lately because of this layout in the new 2007 catalog. click to enlarge: It seems that some people think an IKEA staffer photoshopped a human peenie on the picture of the dog. IKEA claims it is the dog’s leg. I’ve had dogs all my life and, um, I haven’t come across a leg like that on a canine. Who knows what the real deal is here. Maybe Sven the wonder dog just flashed the camera his puppy package!

Hump day hodge podge

The fabulous Lisanne surprised me by sending me a box full of 3 liters of Polar Sodas. There was Vanilla Seltzer, Double Fudge, and my favorite, Pomegranate Dry. So yummy! I always love trying products that aren’t available in my area. Merci Lisanne!

Tonight I’m heading out to a free screening of Trust The Man.

Oh, and that gift card (see below) is still up for grabs. Any takers?

The BPOH has brought quite a few new readers over here. Welcome y’all! So I thought I’d see if there are any questions I can answer for you. Anything you’ve been curious about? I’m an open book, so ask away!

Have I gotta deal for you!

I have this $75 gift card for Levy Restaurants. Problem is, the only restaurant they had in the Charlotte area got bought out. So now this card doesn’t do me much good until the next time I go to Florida. Who knows when that is. So I thought I’d let you guys in on a deal. Click on the link above and see if you can use the card in your area. If you’d like it I’ll give you the gift card for $60. That’s a $15 savings! I’d rather one of my bloggy buddies have this instead of going on eBay. Leave me a comment or send me an email if you’re interested!

I’m here for you

This just in: Mary Janes are available on the Crocs.com site (finally) in lots of colors! On Crocs.com they are only $29.99 vs the $34.99 they were running over at Journeys. Crocs.com is also carrying the Prima ballerina flats too. I’ve got my whole family turned on to Crocs finally. Hot as Hale (my Papa) is sporting the Islander. When they came in the mail he danced all around in them he loves them so much. My Mama’s been a fan for a while, and now my MIL is too. She’s got the Prima and the Mary Janes and has me on the lookout for a pair of Reliefs (they are sold out in her size & preferred color). Susan is rocking a pair of Mary Janes and finally Lisa quit being a holdout and ordered herself and Pete each a pair of the Athens flip flops. I’m so excited that my peeps are gettin comfy in their Crocs!
Oh, and for you Disney fans, Crocs is coming out with a Disney line!


Hearty CONGRATULATIONS!!! go out to Mary Mia & Rod on their referral of twins! Beautiful, gorgeous, smoochable twin girls. Pop over and say hi! M3 & Rod getting twins totally gives us hope that yep, they really do have twins in China and we might even be lucky enough one day to bring our girls home at the same time like we’ve dreamed for months and months now.
