Sneaky Girls

29 Apr

Check out this cool book I found on Think Geek’s website. Their description is below:

Let’s face it: girls are sneaky. And they have one advantage to being sneaky over boys – they are girls. Girls out there, you know what we mean: your brains are just smarter or something. We want to help ramp up your sneakiness quotient even more, and this book is it. The Sneaky Book for Girls provides complete how-to instructions and diagrams for sneaky gadgets, survival skills, communication codes, science projects, as well as having profiles of more than a dozen famous women. It also explores recycling and conservation techniques.

But that, of course, is not all. In these pages you’ll learn how to:

  • Use stars to find your bearings
  • Build a simple door alarm
  • Turn milk into plastic
  • Construct weapons from everyday objects
  • and loads more!

And it’s the “loads more” that will really get your mischief motor running. Girls, think of this book as a guide to outsmart your enemies (i.e. adults)…or if you are a parent reading this, think of it as a book to outsmart your enemies (i.e. your kids). Either way, just be safe and be sneaky. And don’t blame us if you get caught.

Another Angry Birds Game

28 Apr

Yet another Angry Bird’s game I found! This is a card game made by the creators of UNO. Looks pretty simple yet fun AND it’s only $5 – on sale now! You can find this on Think Geek’s website. No way your parent’s can tell you no because it’s $5!

Chocolate Dinosaurs

28 Apr

I thought this was completely cute. A large milk chocolate dinosaur egg with miniature chocolate dinosaurs inside. You may get them from dinosaurfarm.com but they are currently out of stock. There are other online stores that sell them for around $20 each. Kind of expensive but still really cute and could make a fun gift (but be careful it doesn’t melt)…

Never seen a dessert like this. I think we def need this in Texas. Especially for the summers!

let's get fat!

Salju Desserts is another one of those new shaved snow places popping up in the San Gabriel Valley. I like it better than Fluff Ice because of the atmosphere, it’s much more friendly and personal if that makes sense. When you’re in Fluff Ice you feel like you’re in a store, but not at Salju. At Salju they bring your order out to your table, they don’t do that at Fluff Ice.

I’m not saying that one tastes better than the other, I just prefer the atmosphere at Salju. The place is kind of warm though but you quickly get over that when you start eating your nice cold dessert. They have wifi too.

Haunted House

27 Apr

She used to be scared of everything… now she is seeking scary things. My sister has this obsession with ghosts and haunted houses now. As we are driving back from her 4-H rifle tournament she is staring out the window looking for haunted-looking houses as we go through small Texas towns on the long way home. As we pass by ANY creepy looking older home she yells to my mom, “slow down slow down! I want to take a picture!”. My mom slams on her brakes trying to slow down for her to take a picture as people behind us get mad… and of course my sister was never able to get a picture that would come out since we were moving. We end up stopping at an old antique store which used to be a hotel. We go through the downstairs, upstairs, and basement. I have to say that it was a pretty creepy place because the rooms upstairs were all completely furnished with super old furniture and it had that old smell to it. In the basement there were random stairs leading towards nothing and it was blocked off. It was to say the least, a creepy place… We took pictures throughout every single room, my sister LOVED it… this was her second visit there and since then she has gone back once more. There are haunted stories about that place that the store owner has told us about. She said that sometimes the door gets unlocked and opened when she is not there.

 

Here is a picture Amylia took of a mirror at the store.

Blamtastic!

27 Apr

The new leaders in this world are gradually getting younger and younger! We have people like the founder of Facebook who is very young and then we have the creators of Blamtastic lip balm who are only 10 and 13 year old sisters! Their story is very unique. They were crazy about lip balm, as a lot of people are and they decided to create a basic lip balm that didn’t include a bunch of weird ingredients they had never heard of. They made this lip balm in their own house until they came up with the perfect recipe. The name came to be when one of the sisters accidentally said “blam” instead of “balm”. The mother said “hey! that’s a great name for your lip balm!” and the name stuck… The sisters now get to travel everywhere and have an unlimited, free supply of their own lip balm that was created exactly how they wanted.

Angry Birds

26 Apr

Love Angry Birds? Who doesn’t? One of the most popular apps on the iPhone and iPad is now a real board game. I was surfing the net to find the latest board games because right now I have a sad collection of ONE board game: Life. I just happened to stumble across this game and thought I would share it with you guys! Because if you’re online you more than likely have played this game at least once and might as well check out the board game.
