It's A Party!!

You've made it! Welcome to the party with a dash of sassitude. Can you believe the hundreds of blogs already joining in the blog party? Talk about fun.

I'm a sassy blogging mama married to an amazing man who finds me amusing. I think that's a good thing.

We have six fantabulous kids with varying degrees of sass depending on who they take after.

Higher sass levels definitely means they resemble their father. What?

I rest my case.

Why this blog? Well, I came up with a dash of sassitude and thought, "What a cool name for a blog". On a lark, I checked to see if it was available on blogger. It was and I clicked away not needing yet another blog.

A little while later, I discovered I had actually clicked make a blog instead of cancel. I couldn't let it go to waste. After a little brainstorming, a dash of sassitude officially came to life.

I've had a blast reviewing products, hosting giveaways, and writing about things only a sassy mom could appreciate.

Now I know you have other parties to attend to this week, so I'll wrap this up. Need a dash of sassitude in your life? You can subscribe over on the sidebar. You'll even have the option to subscribe to my other bloggity blogs.

And if you want to party with me some more, check out my other blogs: Enoikeo, My Meandering Mind, Penning Prose, and Six Short of a Dozen all have unique party posts.

Please leave a sassy comment before you leave. I'd love to visit you at your place.

The banner at the top of the page will take you to The Ultimate Blog Party. There are lots of people to get to know, blogs to check out and PRIZES to win.

My top three picks are:

♥ The Rocking Horse from A Rocking Horse to Love
♥ The webcam from Liz at This Full House
♥ A $50 gift certificate to Emily Rose

If those are already taken, I'd love the following (in order):
15, 37, 59, 55, 60, 39, 103, 87, 47, 11, 62, 34, 64, 7, 17, 46, 74, 100, 105, 104, 99, 3, 75, 28, 8, 90, 73, 70 - after that, anything is fine. :)

There are so many awesome things that it's really hard to choose. You don't even need a blog to participate. Now go have fun!

Show and Tell: Me

I'm new to the Show and Tell Friday meme, but I thought it would be fun to add it to a dash of sassitude, so you can get to know me better. With that in mind, my first Show and Tell subject is me.

Don't these glasses make me look smart? I've been wearing them for less than a year, but I feel like I've always worn them. There wasn't much of an adjustment period going from nothing to glasses. This probably has something to do with my obsession with sassy sunglasses.

This picture actually tells a lot about me. See the hair color? I'm actually a blonde naturally. My blonde moments come out full farce when the roots begin to show.

Anyway, the next thing you see is my top. I love fun and funky clothes. This one is near and dear to my heart (literally) because it has images from London all over it. I actually lived in London as a child and moved back to the states when I was 10. Yes, I was a Navy brat. Now, I'm just a brat. Sometimes.

It's hard to see, but I'm wearing a sterling silver necklace. I LOVE sterling silver. My hubby bought this necklace for me when I asked him to choose a cross for me. I wanted a special necklace from him and one that would remind me of Jesus. This one shows Jesus on the cross. It reminds me of what He did for me. And for you. Sentimental x two.

Now look behind me. See the tea cups? I happen to love tea. English influence? Perhaps. I raise my pinky when I sip my tea. You HAVE to raise your pinky finger. That's how real tea drinkers do it.

I love tea cups. We have a lot of tea cups in our cabinet and all my kids love tea. I'll save that for a future show and tell.

The tea cups behind me in the photo hold all sorts of fun buttons. I actually bought this set of cups for a craft project. I need hubby's help. Or I may modify the design. HMMMM. Mind is whirling. Creativity is flowing. I gots an idea. I guess I now have another future Show and Tell.

Which brings me to the next thing in the photo. See all those mini drawers? Lots of crafting goodies to be found in there. I love working with my hands and behind me is my craft desk and supplies.

One last thing you can learn about me in this photo: see the mango wall? Pretty huh. Why a bold color on the wall? Well, this room is my office, craft, school room. I wanted something that would inspire creativity. Mango and yellow walls! Total FUN! I'll take you on a tour later for Show and Tell.

To think, I wondered if I'd have enough ideas for Show and Tell Fridays and they seem to be all over the place. I love it when an accident comes together. ;)

Amazing what you can learn about a person from one, little photograph. For more Show and Tell Friday goodness, click on the banner.


Works for Me Wednesday - Backwards Edition!

Today it's Works for Me Wednesday: The Backwards Edition! This means I get to ask you for tips on my dilemma. What is my dilemma? I'm so glad you asked.

I want to incorporate more bean and rice dishes into our meal plans because they are not only healthy, but frugal. However, warmer days are coming, so I'd like to skip the soup and opt for summer friendly recipes.

I'd love for you to share your favorite/best recipes for bean and rice dishes (can be together or separate) that are especially wonderful when it's HOT outside. :)

I look forward to seeing what you all come up with.
