Celebrating...kitchen gadgets

Yesterday, I found an article titled "Absurd Kitchen Gadgets" on the Yahoo newsfeed. The items that were listed were just at or under $10, so it's fun and cheap! Their list included Finger Food Party Plates, which is much like a teeny plate on a ring that you wear on your finger (Perpetual Kid), a Banana Bunker, and my favorite, the Condiment Gun (Amazon). The article features a few other items which can also add fun to your time in the kitchen. So take a peek at the article, which seems to have been summarized by a catalogue company, Kaboodle. Looks like an interesting site, if you're looking to shop. In the meantime, I'm going to order my condiment gun! Have fun in the kitchen!! Luv Ya!! Pixxa

Celebrating...Relaxing

According to Holidays for Everyday, today, August 15, 2012 is National Relaxation Day. Wow...there is so much that you can do to celebrate that...or---you could just relax! I'm opting for the latter. Luv Ya! Pixxa

Celebrating...Friendship Day

How appropriate that today is Friendship Day!! I just spent the weekend with the folks that I grew up with in my neighborhood. We spent our grammer school and high school years together and though we are now spread across the city and the country, we got together to celebrate us this weekend. We spent Friday evening bowling and yesterday we spent the day picnicing. It was great looking back at old memories and making new ones (the most outstanding incident of the day is the crazy storm that blew in all of a sudden and how we had to pack it up and move). But through it all, it was wonderful to be a part of a group of friends that have been friends fo so long (we were celebrating out 50th birthdays). A little about Friendship Day (taken from http://www.friendshipday.org) Friendship Day celebrations take place on the first Sunday of August every year. The tradition of dedicating a day in honor of friends began in US in 1935. Gradually the festival gained popularity and today Friendship Day is celebrated in large number of countries including India. On this day people spend time with their friends and express love for them. Exchange of Friendship Day Gifts like flowers, cards and wrist bands is a popular tradition of this occasion. I don't know anyone who personally celebrates Friendship Day, but now you have an entire year, to think of a special way to celebrate your friends. In the meantime, I'd like to thank YOU for your friendship!! Luv Ya!! Pixxa

Celebrating...PINK!

Today is one of my friend's birthday. I can imagine the festivities because for her, everything is PINK! And sparkly! Have you ever thought of planning a celebration around a color? Pink is easy. There's pink punch, pink frosting, pink cold cuts...you can even make pink bread. Everyone you invite should be dressed from head to toe in (you guessed it), pink! You can serve your beverages in pink glasses and your food on pink plates. Don't forget the pink balloons and pink streamers and pink napkins and table clothes. And round it off with a pink favor of some sort so that all of the attendees can remember their pink event. Not into pink? This theme can easily transfer to any color. Or take it a step further. Have a pot luck party and have everyone bring something that is their favorite color. Could be interesting! Just know that celebrations don't have to be big. You can celebrate the simplest of things...including the color pink. Happy Birthday Cheryl!! Luv Ya!! Pixxa
