In November 2011 I climbed aboard the gratitude train and posted a Facebook status each day in regards to what I was thankful for. I so enjoyed doing it that I decided to bring our family blog back with a little twist... to devote the year of 2012 to gratitude. This will be my platform with which to journal our thankfulness throughout the year along with just documenting the daily fun that is our family! Hope you'll join me for the journey!

Sold Out...

to infomercials! My kids have recently gotten into a few shows on Nickelodeon... they've typically been Disney Channel fans in the past. Along with this new interest with shows on Nick comes a new love for this bizarre world of infomercials... They memorize them and then tell me all the reasons I need these items... a few of their favorites include:

the snugglie...


big city slider station...


ShamWow...

Buxton Bag organizer...


and then of course there's my favorite Spinlash Mascara...
(which Will reminds me each morning would reduce my bumps & clumps and make my eyelashes fabulous)...

I'm not sure why on earth a television channel broadcasting shows for kids feels the need to air these infomercials, but they've managed to get my kids hook, line & sinker. I think it may be time for a infomercial intervention around here!

So the irony in all this is Kip and I did order (after watching an infomercial) and commit to doing P90X this year! It's an infomercial that Kip's been watching and contemplating for a while now so I ordered it for him for Christmas. It's an intense 90 day body transforming work out regimen... we've taken our before pictures and I've been challenged by a few friends to put them on the blog... so I've decided there's no better source of accountability than you my blog friends... pictures to come soon!
Oh yea, in case you aren't familiar with P90X here's a link. Sorry I couldn't find the actual infomercial...

Hope you all have a fabulous week-end free of any annoying infomercials! Perhaps you'd like to share your favorite?!?

I am cracking up! Hunter just saw the commercial for that snugglie blanket thing and said he really wants it! It was on during half time fo the UL game! Crazy boys! It just shows those stupid commercials are effective at making us believe we need something! Good luck with p90x or whatever-I am just trying to conquer the elliptical!

I think you need to get that boy a snugglie! Campbell reminds me every day that she really needs one... you know because it gets ohhh so cold here in south Louisiana!

That is SO funny!! I get so cold sometimes that I feel like I need the Snugglie! I was cracking up when reading that Will reminds you that you need the Spinlash Mascara wand...HAHAHA!!! LOVE IT!

Yes, I do want to see some before pics...will be very interesting to see the after ones next to it. I was talking to Anna to day about how great it is that you've got the kiddos in school and can put that into your schedule...I just don't think I could add that into my already hectic schedule, although something's gotta give...I'm gaining weight like you wouldn't believe! UGH!!
