My prayers for a thunderstorm came true. Overnight, the temperatures dropped thirty degrees thanks to the rain! Too bad the sun will burn it all up in just a few hours.
Happy Monday! Who has a short week thanks to the holiday?

Describe a random moment of your weekend. Yesterday, we went to Barnes and Noble to buy my father-in-law a gift card for his birthday and look at parenting books. While we were there, I decided to see if they had the Healthy Tipping Point book in stock. There are so many books on the market that even just-released books aren’t always available in every store, but mine was! It was a fun moment. I also found Peas and Thank You, an excellent vegan recipe book by another blogger, on the same shelf. In the parenting section, I couldn’t find the book I wanted to buy (Jo Frost’s Confident Baby Care) – boo! On the way out of the store, I was very tempted to purchase the Game of Thrones series but I don’t want to spoil the excellent HBO show by reading the books.
Do you have any tattoos or piercings? Do you regret them? I have two holes in each ear. I also had my ear cartilage pierced and the upper and lower belly button skin pierced, but I removed those about eight years ago. I have my mom’s middle (and my middle name) tattooed on my hip – Joy. I don’t regret my tattoo at all and actually really want another one. I regret piercing my upper belly button skin because it is now a mass of scar tissue that constantly hurt when stretched out the last trimester of pregnancy.
Describe a really memorable present you received for Christmas or Hanukah as a child. My Skip-It. Do you remember that toy? So cool – especially the Skip-It with the counter so you could see how many skips you had done.
Your turn! Describe a random moment of your weekend, tell me about your piercings and tattoos, and let’s wax poetic about awesome childhood toys. Moon shoes, anyone?
My belly button scar is nasty from pregnancy too. I don’t necessarily regret it, but I don’t particularly love that scar. I love my tattoo. My mom swore I would regret it, but I rally do still love it. I have a four leaf clover on my ankle. Ironically, my best friend from high school and I ended up with the same tattoo, from the same place and we never knew it until years later…
