I might be the last one to hear of these guys, but someone just filled me in on these hilarious men this weekend. I warn ya'll ahead of time, this one is a bit crass, but so stinking funny... Also, once you see their collection of videos on you tube, I suggest that the clips of them on stage together are far superior to the dramatization videos of the same songs. Their chemistry on stage is what makes them the funniest to me.

i need a bean recommendation. i'm passionately devoted to the beans roasted at a coffee shop here in iowa city, called capanna, but they cost 12.95 for 3/4 of a pound. you know how fast a person can go through 3/4 of a pound. it's getting pricey. cheaper than crack, but not by much. i need to know what grocery store brands you like. and for the record, i'm through with starbuck's brewed coffee. i can't take the scorched flavor any more. i know caron's preference for chock-full-o-nuts. anyone else have a good, relatively inexpensive suggestion?
i don't know about you, but i am SO excited about daphne getting married. i have thoroughly enjoyed having occasions to toast, shower and spoil her! click here to see some of my (terrible!) pictures of daphne being celebrated thus far. the first page of photos are from her small engagement celebration at our house in feb, and the second page are from the small kitchen shower thrown for her by her lovely friend laura alley. my pictures didn't turn out that great, and i didn't get pictures of everyone that was there. i didn't want to be annoying! ha ha. anyway, i can't wait to see the snapshots that come from her personal shower! hubba hubba! i won't be there, so please someone get pics!

I'm not a tomboy by any means, but I distinctly remember not being able to wear makeup til I was a freshman. I had to buy my makeup myself. I never got my hair highlighted til I was a senior. I never went to a tanning salon til I was getting married and even there I was surrounded by high schoolers tanning for prom. I keep thinking that girls are growing up too fast these days, and I wonder: how am I gonna keep Reese from following the same trend, without her feeling like she's missing something?
How do I foster that self-confidence that doesn't need to follow every trendy whim and can find a unique place for herself? I know my daughter will want to mimic the girls she sees in school, and want to dress up & 'get ready' like me. I'm not opposed to her playing around with my makeup (when she's a bit older!), and pretending to be 'like mommy', but I really want something different for my kid than what I'm seeing on TV: a generation growing up with a distorted image.
I'm not sure how to tackle this. Thoughts?
