I can't even fathom,

What it would be like to drink out of a cup that is the same size of my leg

Can you?

Hump Day Inspiration: Partys

Leave it to my sister to throw a party on whim, and then ask for my "help" to decorate aka I decorate. Leave it to me to look at pinterest for all my inspiration. Pretty much I'm the MacGyver of party decorating. I had, 2 crepe paper colors, some construction paper, a few blank letters, some string and some sprinkles. We also had a pack of 20 balloons, 3 of which we never saw again, thanks to our helpers.. Make that 17 balloons. Here is what we came up with...

A few balloons strung on a string. Easy sauce for sure. Sprinkles in little dishes with candles as centerpiece on top of a crepe paper runner. Chandelier of sorts made from crepe paper hung from the ceiling fan. And lots of streamers strung about. Also, since we only had 2 streamer colors, sis cut up some blue tissue paper. She's the artist of the family. When all was said and done. We were pretty proud of ourselves. Her hus came home and didn't say "Hey wow! Awesome job!" but what he did say was "What the heck?! You never decorated like this for our kids." Which is pretty much the same in my book. Her answer? "Uh.. Janean did it." That's right. I'll take that credit. Lol. But at least on my blog I will give her some of the credit too. You read that, Charity? I'm publicly giving you credit for helping decorate for the party. I'm not taking it all. Just don't tell your husband... Ha!

Xoxo, Janean Pin It

Make It Monday: Cooler

I am trying to make the most of visiting family and, so are the people I'm visiting. They are putting me to work.. Ok, not really. It was blistering hot here in the desert highlands of Salt Lake City the other day. My sister and I were slaving away. I was helping her clean her house (because I am a fabulous person) and we decided to turn on the ceiling fan. Bad idea. All of the sudden, hot gusts of wind were upon us. The fan seemed worthless. It was just taking all the hot air in the room that had collected in the vaulted ceiling and was blowing it down on us. Not good. If it hadnt had been for a discussion The Hus and I had just had about ceiling fans, I would not know there was a solution to our problem. So, apparently, there is a switch on ceiling fans. Said switch, supposedly changes the direction of the blades. In our situation, we obviously needed them to go the other direction so that the hot air would not blow down on us, but so the fan would bring cold air to our sweaty faces. Well, the fan was pretty high up, her ceiling has to be at least 20ft high. Insert ladder. And here's how our conversation went.
"Charity, you got a ladder?" " Yep. But I don't think its tall enough."  "Sure its tall enough. Add about 5ft to it, I mean I am like 5'8"."  "Right."  "So, let's give it a try."  "Janean, I don't think it has a switch."  "Charity, of course it has a switch. Only one way to find out though."

Well, we found the switch, see that little switch in the bottom left picture? We just slid that  bad boy over. Gave it a whirl, (once I had moved out of the way) and presto! Perfectly cool air. And her fan got a little needed cleaning as well. Like our little cheerleader? He loved watching the fan. One of the best things about a ceiling fan in a baby's room? Its a major 2fer. Doubles as a mobile. My kids will fall asleep just mesmerized by those things. Works out great on a hot summer afternoon.
Well, I hope I inspired you to see if your ceiling fan has a switch!
And to be cool.
(pun intended)

Sunday Confessions: Nerd Alert

I must confess,

The Hus says I look like a cute nerd,
who needs contacts.
Thanks Babe.

In third grade I was in an X-Men Comic Book Club with my friends. Which later evolved into a Spy Club. Really we would just get together and swim in my friends pool and read those comic books. I love Science and always have. Especially Astronomy.  I have even downloaded a constellation app for my iPad. It works depending on where you are located. It will tell you exactly what constellations are in the sky above you. I really want to invest an excellent telescope. I think it would be awesome to star gaze.   Don't worry, I'm not planning on spying on the neighbors. That's just creepy.
I used to want braces SOOO bad. All my friends had them in middle school and I felt super left out. Oh middle school, you tricker, you. Turning everything in the world upside down and backwards. Little did  I realize how lucky I was to not need braces...
My favorite channel for the longest time was Animal Planet. I used to want to be the first person to see a live giant squid, in its natural habitat. And the first person on Mars. One summer I went  to a political camp. WHO does that?! Nerds. But that's ok. I have since come to terms with my nerdyness.
