Tag - You're It!

So, I've Been Tagged by Jeanne Sager at Inside Out! For those of you who don't know what this is (I sure didn't!) this is a meme, which is kind of like a question-answer game like you played in high school but for all of us adults (kids can't be the only ones havin' fun!)! If I've tagged you (tag- you're it!), here are the rules:
1. Link to the person who tagged you.

2. Post the rules on your blog.

3. Write six random things about yourself.

4. Tag sixish people at the end of your post.

5. Let each person know he or she has been tagged.

6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up.

Six Random Things About Me:

. I have a very big crush on Mario Batali! My husband knows he'd have trouble in Kitchen Stadium if I ever met my Iron Chef!

2. I get teased at work because of my Starbucks "habit!" I love my tall, Super Hot (and I mean Super Hot!) mocha with whip if I am in the mood . . and I don't ever finish them because I get momnesia when I focus on work and then everyone here has a good laugh!
3. My Musical Guilty Pleasure is Al B Sure - Show the love, ladies!
. In the summer time, my favorite thing to do is take my boys to Taylor Street for Italian Ice and lupini beans!

I love mixing high (ish) and low fashion, and there is nothing brightens my day like finding a new, funky cheapo top! This sensibility would also apply to humor: Clever humor, very funny - fart sounds, even funnier! I might pass out laughing if it was a clever person farting!
6. If I could clone myself, the Other Me would live in Jamaica (I'm a Super Virgo, so I'd be down there in the sun, organizing something except my car, which is beyond trashed!)

Bonus answer: Drinking even a tiny tini brings out my inner grandma, to the joy of everyone around me who needs a little advice! Well, that was fun!

Now it's time for you: Tag, You're It!

Style mavens with cold feet everywhere rejoiced at the sight of these brightly colored snowboots, which are perfectly suited to the young and young at heart!
Speaking of hearts, Ottosen has followed through with his mission to not only have a rockin' company, but one that makes a positive difference in the world as well.

Besides making bathtime a lotta fun, 100% of the profits from his new colorful ducks, available at, are donated to people who dedicate their lives to making a difference to others.

Yummy Recipes! Spatulatta Presents the Pilgrim Hat!

The Quinoa Vegetarian Pilgrim's Hat!

The Lovely Spatulatta ladies were kind enough to share their Pilgrim's Hat recipe with us. For more on the creators of this yummy treat, check out our cool interview with Liv and Belle!

Before you begin: Quinoa is a grain from the Andes and has been eaten for thousands of years by native people in South America. It much prized by vegetarians because it has a lot of proteins that other grains don't have. This is a recipe that will need an adult with strong arms and a very sharp knife to cut the squash into rings. Acorn squash is a “winter”squash and unlike “summer”squash like zucchini, it has a very hard shell. The shell protects the acorn squash seeds while it lays on the ground through the whole winter. In the spring the shell will finally break open. The meat of the squash that you eat is really there to cover the seeds and nourish them while they germinate and grow roots that will burrow down into the soil. Serves 6.

You'll need:
  • 1 Acorn squash - about 5 inches in diameter
  • 2/3 cup light brown sugar –firmly packed
  • ½ cup of butter or margarine –melted
  • 4 tablespoons of vegetable bouillon
  • 4 cups of water
  • 1 large onion - diced
  • 2 stalks of celery –finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon of ground sage
  • 1-2 tablespoons of butter
  • 2 roasted red peppers - cut into strips
  • Cooking spray
  • Aluminum foil
  • Wax-lined paper cups –6-ounce size
  • Adult help –big time!
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • A cookie sheet
  • A really sharp knife
  • A 3-quart pot with lid
  • A skillet
  • Wooden spoons
  • A pastry brush
Pilgrim's Hat How-to:
  1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees F or 175 degrees C.
  2. Lightly coat the cookie sheet with cooking spray.
  3. Have dad or whoever is helping you cut the acorn squash in half through what would be the equator if it were a globe of the world. This will be difficult because of the shape of the squash. Have the adult start by making a little cut through the tough shell and then inserting the tip of the knife into the cut. The trick is to slide the knife in and turn the squash at the same time so the knife is only cutting through one wall of the squash at a time. Trying to saw through the squash is almost impossible. Have the adult slice the squash into 1-inch rings.
  4. Pull the seeds and strings out of the center of the squash rings. Place them on the cookie sheet and cover with aluminum foil.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until tender.
  6. While the squash is baking, boil 4 cups water then add the bouillon. You could also use 4 cups of vegetable stock.
  7. Stir in 2 cups of quinoa and cook 10-15 minutes, or until all water is absorbed.
  8. Meanwhile, combine the sugar and melted butter.
  9. When the squash is tender, brush the butter/sugar mixture on the top side of the baked squash. Put it back in the oven and bake, uncovered, for 15-20 minutes.
  10. Melt 1-2 tablespoons of butter in the skillet and sauté the onion and celery with the ground sage until onions are translucent. Mix into the cooked quinoa. Spoon the warm mixture into your paper cup "molds" and press them firmly to set the shape. Lay the candied squash rings on individual plates. Carefully, turn out a quinoa hat “crown”into middle of each squash ring. Garnish with a roasted red pepper strip for the hatband.
Happy Turkey Day! -Liv and Belle!

Mama Lavona's Astrology: Baby Scorpio and Sagittarius

Greetings, friends! As the winds grow colder, we welcome little Scorpios and Sagittarians to the world!

are deep and intense. They feel and do everything with great passion. Emotions run deep for those native to this sign. (However, their deepest feeling are usually kept hidden.) They love a good mystery...but no scary movies! They are deeply affected by everything around which can make them feel insecure at times. For this reason (s)he may become possessive of those she loves. Sibling rivalry is not uncommon with Scorpio children. Reassure him/her often that (s)he is loved and safe. A Scorpio child treated with love and kindness will stay close to you for life. But a hurt Scorpio can be very unforgiving or vengeful even! Handle with Care! Scorpios need a great deal of privacy and special place to call their own where (s)he feels safe and secure. Give him/her a little box where he/she can hide special mementos. Or a diary with lock and key. Scorpios despite their deep emotions are not wishy washy at all and will impress you with their strong
will and determination.

Birthstone: Topaz, Bloodstone

Essential Oil: Rose, Myrrh

Gift Ideas: A Safe, diary with lock and key, microscope


Sagittarius is as optimistic as they come! They are blessed with a sunny disposition! But can just as easily flare up into a temper tantrum if (s)he is kept waiting for anything. Don’t worry though, the episodes are usually brief and (s)he’ll return to his/her warm loving self. Sagittarians are happiest when exploring the world around them. They love going for long walks, seeing new faces and new places. Sagittarius is not likely to sit back and watch the parade go by, they want to be on the float! They are players not spectators! Sports will keep them happy AND out of trouble.. Your little one one will have quite an affinity with animals, so trips to the zoo will be a hit. Freedom and exploration are the keys to happiness for Sagittarrius. But it’s important to know when to say ‘NO’ so s(he) doesn’t wander down inappropriate paths. This little tyke is sure to keep you on your toes!

Birthstone: Lapis Lazuli, turquoise

Essential Oil: Bergamot, calendula, clove

Gift Ideas: Globe, atlas, sports equipment, dance or martial arts lessons

Congratulations to Big Hair Contest Winner, Nicole!

To quote the fabulous Stevie Wonder, "Isn't She Lovely?" The winning look, from Nicole of Chicago, is called the "Wall Of Hair" and Nicole was kind enough to let us in on her hairstyling tips!
To get the Wall of Hair, "A curling iron, fine tooth comb, lots of aerosol spray and a blow dryer are needed. Curl it all, rat it up, spray, bow dry and repeat. After plenty of hairspray and 20 minutes, you, too, can have a WALL of hair like this. Pretty classy stuff. Goes well with leggings, jelly shoes, oversized blazer with large shoulder pads, and lots of bracelets. Long Live the 80's, but thankfully, this hairstyle was put to rest long ago and has since been replaced by a much-more toned down (ie no wall style)." Thanks for the tips, Nicole. You've made everyone really happy with your big hair, except of course, those poor hair spray bottles that long for your tresses!
Nicole is the winner of the cool Bead Shop Styling Kit, which is a super cool gift for your Little Lady! Hopefully, we can get some cool pics of the new looks created!

Yummy! We'll take 5 Take 5's, Thank You!

So, in the aftermath of Halloween, Lisa brought her extra candy to our main office in what can only be described as a giant bag o sugar! She always has the most happenin' Halloween house with decorations and a scare walk and all that kind of fun stuff, and as you can imagine, that sort of thing requires a lot of candy. We were lucky enough to luck out and get the residuals! Everyone was all excited about the array of Blow Pops and delicious Kit Kats, Hershey Bars and such. That was, until, we rooted around in the bag and found what has been ruled The Best Candy This Office Has Ever Seen! We have taken a vote. It is unanimous (except for "strict veggie" Katy, who opted out!). Take 5 Rules!!!! It is made by the Hershey's Company, and for this goodness, we would like to say, thank you Hershey's. Seriously, the next time you Take5 have a Take 5 with its chocolate, peanut, peanut butter, pretzel goodness. There' s no need to thank us- we're taking 5!

And three more things, just cos they bring the cuteness!

We just got 'em in and we are melting down over how cute they are! Pick up a KISS, Mom and Dad or Jolly Rodger Sourpuss Feeding set ($18/each), and give your pals one yummy baby shower gift! Also, if you are into the rock n roll baby and kids clothes, check out the other New Arrivals from Sourpuss!

It's Bump Day, and we've got comething yummy for you!

So, we got three new baby feeding sets from Sourpuss, and that, combined with Thanksgiving being on the way has inspired us to do a series of in-fun-mational articles on Baby Food! We were Googling our tushies off today, and happened upon these ingenious Jumbo Baby Food Cubes that we are melting down over! Now, some of us made baby food all the time while our kids were growing, and these look to be a super upgrade from earlier forms! The cubes are all 2 oz individual containers with attached lids, that are perfect for storing breastmilk or yummy foods and have a tray that they fit into that makes it easy to freeze! These are getting great reviews, and they are giving us all those newborn longings! If anyone out there has used these cool cubes, share your info with all our soon-to-be Moms in the Comments section!

It's Bump Day with RockStarMoms!

Spit. Cries. Yells. Applause. Driving around town like you're on tour. Yep, every Mom is a Rock Star! Leah Brumley, a Momtrepreneur, fully understands a Mom's rock n roll lifestyle! A record-store owner turned soccer mother of four, didn't want to give up her rock n roll style when she became a Mom, so she also "gave birth" to the Rock Star Moms maternity line in 2003!
While pregnant, Brumley was inspired by the fact that while shopping she couldn't find the tops and clothes she would want to wear! Since every Mom is a rock star is their own right, she whipped up her line, that is now at the top of the international charts! Starting with fun tube tops featuring the likes of Bob Marley and the Rolling Stones, Brumley soon branched out into cool Jug Rug Nursing Covers that feature the Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Grateful Dead and other classic rock bands!
Leah has been featured on CNBC's "The Big Idea" as well as many other morning talk shows, because her comfy and rockin' clothes give soon-to-be-moms the round of applause they deserve! She has not ever forgotten her rockin' roots, however. As she branched out into an eco-friendly line, fitness wear and a private label maternity line, she takes pride in employing women and mothers in her community. That's gotten her a standing ovation from herhusband Jeremy, and her kids, Austin (14), Brent (12), Scout (4), and Ryder (5 weeks) as well as the many ladies out there who are proud to be Rock Star Moms!
