Are the Roos' Ready for a...


MB's cousin gave him Sea Monkeys for his birthday. These interesting creatures have our curiosity peaked. It took them a while to hatch and then a few days later all of them disappeared. Now, they're back! We love watching them.

For family night, G.G. & Pops brought over dinner. We know- we are spoiled. Then we planted some flower seeds. It was messy but fun.

Mr. Boy waters the flowers every day and gets so excited to see them grow.

I really want a pet. That's right- a live creature to love and feed. I just don't want to clean up its' pooh. HeRoos prefers cats. I prefer dogs. We took the kids to the pet store and showed them all of the animals. HeRoos and I finally decided we would meet in the middle and possibly get a turtle for MB's birthday. I was pretty excited since I also love turtles. We talked to the pet guru at the store and learned how to care for them. We asked Mr. Boy, "Do you want a turtle?" His response broke his mommy's heart, "No, I want a kitty cat." Now we're back to square one- no pets (except for our sea monkeys).

Kiss Me...

I'm Irish!

We really do have some Irish blood in us. My mom is a McDermott and her ancestors came from Ireland. When I was visiting Ireland, it was neat seeing the McDermott name around. Ireland is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to. As we were on a train to Dingle, there were green rolling hills with sheep grazing and even a rainbow. It was postcard worthy in every direction.

Mr. Boy cracks me up. He wouldn't open his eyes. I guess he was tired of getting kissed. Miss ZoZo has no interest in the camera and it's rare to get a picture of her smiling.

Dress Up

Our Halloween costumes are finally get some use. ZoZo was a fairy princess, Mr. Boy was Batman, B was Woody & A was Jessie. They played and played and played. This is such a fun age.

Here's to hoping that the kids will cooperate next Halloween and actually wear their costumes.

Paid Advertising Addict

Hi, my name is SheRoos and I'm an addict. An info-commercial junkie to be exact. When flipping through television channels I instantly get sucked in to the world of paid advertising. I tell myself that it's OK to watch for 5 minutes but DO NOT buy. Well, the truth is... I've been suckered more than a couple times. 6 to be exact:

1) Proactiv- this product was seriously an answered prayer to my adult stricken, acne, face. I still use it on occasion when I break out & HeRoos also uses it. Sometimes I wonder if I should buy stock in the company.

2) Bare Mineral Makeup- I ended up giving this away because I didn't like the mess when I mixed it.

3)some work out program that I can't remember the name of- obviously I was under some crazy idea that I would actually work out to videos at home. The day it arrived, reality set in and I returned it for a refund.

4)The Magic Bullet- I L-O-V-E my bullet. HeRoos & I use it at least once a day. It's awesome for Green Smoothies on the go. I've gone through 3 of them because we use them so much. My favorite part is that I can just toss the cups & blades in the dishwasher without dealing with a mess. We're saving for a "fancier" blender but I just may cry when it's time to say good-bye.

5) Youthful Essence by Susan Lucci- I ordered this years ago ran out of the products but I still use the resurfacing tool. I'm still waiting for the day when I look in the mirror and see Susan Lucci smiling back at me.

6)Wen- my latest purchase. It has only been a couple weeks but I must admit, I like how soft my hair feels. I'm undecided if I will continue with it but so far it's a keeper.

My latest temptation that I'm fighting hard to resist... the Genie bra. A bra with no under wire & it claims to cut down on back fat AND overflow on the top AND it lifts?! Bring it on! What girl doesn't want a genie to make her wishes come true?
