Every McDonalds is exactly the same. You could visit a Micky D's in London or Vernal and you would get the same Chicken McNuggets with one glaring exception. There is a McDonalds in Victorville, California that was so bad, so dirty, so foul, I had to report it to Corporate and believe me, I have low standards. oh, and that huge one in Barstow that looks like a train--it's nasty too.
They have the best toys. We have collected a lot of toys from McDonalds, most notably, the Wizard of Oz Madame Alexander dolls. We also collected the Transformers, the Batman series and many many others. In fact, Luke began his obsession with Ninja Turtles from McDonald happy meal toys. He was into them for 18 months straight and never waivered. He had a Ninja Turtle birthday, he was one for Halloween. Now they are dead to him--it was a good run and it all started at McD's.
The restaurants are clean. My kids' preschool goes on a tour of McDonalds and goes behind the scenes to the food prep area. Spotless.

The fries--'nuf said.
Do you love or hate McDonalds? What do you order? For me, it's a 6 piece nugget with ketchup.

I have this bar from Rod Works in my entryway that I hang three photos from. I need one family shot and two other shots. This is where you come in. Please help me choose the best family photo and tell me if you like any of the other photos. I can't be objective on this. The only thing I focus on is which photo makes me look the least fat.

*I know my pizza stone is pretty nasty--how do you get those things clean?
I've had my eye on this panini maker for Christmas this yearI think I'm going to ask for some restaurant giftcards instead.

Step 2. Put up the yard decor.
Step 4. Eat all of your meals on these.
Step 5. Listen to this in the car until mom goes crazy.
Step 6. Go to Engh's pumpkin patch. Play on the pirate ship, run through the corn maze, drink hot cider. Don't buy anything.
Step 7. Buy your pumpkins at Rasmussen's pumpkin patch where the pumpkins are much cheaper and the little old men who run it are much cuter. Don't forget to get a picture of the fat baby in the pumpkins.
Step 8. Stay up late to make a Halloween gingerbread house.
Step 9. Eat a LOT of Halloween candy
Step 10. Watch this on tv

A lot of my friends have family blogs. That ain't what this is about--hence the name of my blog. This is just a place for me to talk about stuff I want to buy, tv shows and maybe some celebrity gossip--and a little bit about the kids for the grandmas' sake. Just promise me you won't call DCFS after you see what is going on in my home. My husband Sam thinks I waste a lot of time reading blogs. So now I can waste a lot of time writing a blog. oh, and creepy stalker/pedophile types can keep moving--I promise, you don't want to mess with me.
