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 arenâ€™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 couldnâ€™t find the book I wanted to buy (Jo Frostâ€™s Confident Baby Care) â€“ boo! On the way out of the store, I was very tempted to purchase the Game of Thrones series but I donâ€™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 momâ€™s middle (and my middle name) tattooed on my hip â€“ Joy. I donâ€™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 â€“ 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 letâ€™s wax poetic about awesome childhood toys. Moon shoes, anyone?
