Things I've learned

* The keychain remote I have to my house alarm is not the way to turn on the alarm when people will be home.
Sei and I made a late nite run to Walmart last nite. We left Tristan and my little sister (She's 14) in charge. I told them I was setting the alarm. I clicked my handy little keychain remote and felt that all my precious babies were protected. Fast forward 10 minutes.... My phone rings. When I see it is Tristan I jokingly say to Sei, "Um, Mom, the alarm is going off." I answered and can totally hear the alarm going off in the background. DOH! I forgot about the motion detector!! Poor Tristan sounded pretty shaken up. I felt bad. :( I gave him the code to turn it off and brought him & Ali a Twix to bride them forgivness. If I had been thinking I would have known not to click it on with my remote. Duh. I was impressed how quickly ADT called our home. They called within seconds of Tristan's call to my phone.

*I still heart New Kids on the Block. Big Time.
NKOTB performed on The Today Show this morning. OMGosh... I love them. I cried. Shut up- I really did. They sang a medley of their old songs, sang a new song and then sang "Tonight"- which I totally sang along too. I saw some posers in the crowd trying to pretend like they knew the words. They so. did. not. They have now added DALLAS to their tour- for October 19. It's a Sunday. I don't usually do concerts on Sunday, which is why my mom drove us to Oklahoma City to see them before. But they are going to San Antonio on the Friday before that. Hmmm... Road trip, s--max?? Oh- and Jon still can't dance. I always loved Danny (for his hawt body) and Donnie for his cuteness and rebelliousness. I still love them. I need to get my concert tee back from Izzy....


*Green bags work.
I haven't used the Debbie Meyer's Green Bags personally, but they reviewed them on the news yesterday. The bananas, strawberries and lettuce were fresh and yummy 18 days later!! I buy fruit but we never seem to get thru it fast enough before it all spoils- especially bananas and strawberries. I'm gonna get me some of these bags. They sell them at CVS now and probably other places too.

NKOTB's new song is so hawt! I was too young to remember any of their old songs, but Tori...you MUST go to that concert!

Guess who might be moving to Dallas this summer? Ted.

Lauren said...

I KNEW YOU WERE WATCHIN AND ROCKIN. I am not a NKOB fan but that was awesome. It was me faking the words, for give me. Yeah I noted that one couldn't dance. I am so glad you got to see it. Did I tell you I bursted into tears when Jovi came out. So wrong it was right!!! BYW Jovi is too hot!

Sorry you forgot about the motion detector--glad Tristan called you and the police didn't immediately come to the house. Good call with the Twix bars

I heard they were on the Today show, but I was on the plane headed for Boston. Glad you enjoyed it.

I've never tried those green bags.

Hey that's big news about the green bags. Just today I was wondering if it's even possible for bananas to last more than 5 days.

Yes, and that was one of my more interesting thoughts, too. Don't even ask!

Stacey said...

I hope the Twix you bought Tristan was king size.

and did you really tell me to shut up? because I was laughing with you.

I missed the performance but down with the posers! B-o-o!

NKOTB rocks!!!! i was so excited watching them this morning, i was jumping up and down....and the green bags do work, i use them all the time.

We go through fruit like crazy so we don't need any green bags.

Elton John's looking kind of haggard these days. Maybe they can seal him into a fruit bag to revitalize him.

I have those green bags. They work!!
I bought them just to see what would happen. I buy a lot of cilantro and it goes bad pretty fast. With the bag I have had no spoiled cilantro at all. W00T!

Klin said...

I want some green bags, too.

I so wanted to call you and see if you were watching them. I was thinking about you all morning. Then I realized, I only have the old number :(

I am so glad you got to see them.

utmommy said...

You totally crack me up.

Chel said...

You're hilarious.
Can I fly down to San Antonio and go with you? I really would too. I'm not kidding.

Now and then Lauren sets the alarm at night and accidentally arms the motion detector, then goes right to bed. I'm the first one up in the morning, so the thing goes off and wakes the neighborhood, and I almost wet my pants! :0

Amanda said...

I've gotta get me some of those green bags! :)

Scary about the alarm. I've been tempted to get an alarm lately....
