Crock Pot Girls

Crock Pot Girls, You may have noticed that all of your Facebook friends recently have started liking this page. But what is it?

Crock Pot Girls, is just three moms who got together and created a Facebook page sharing their favorite Crock Pot recipes. It's become a huge phenomenon, within two weeks they had over a million 'likes'.

Check out their page here:

Copycats are even starting to pop up on Facebook. So much so that the original 'Crock Pot Girls' put a note on their page, saying this was their only Facebook page and others even using their pictures, weren't them.

What's with this latest craze? Or have Crock Pots always been the go-to meal maker?

I remember my mom making crock pot dishes when I was little. I bought my own crock pot a few years ago.

It really is the easiest way to make a delicious meal, whether you are busy working or busy with your kids. But it seems like it's cool again to use the crock pot.

So crock on!

This is how you know that you are in the 28-35+ years old...

Making that big giant step from your early 20's to your late twenties and then your thirties can sting. 

Teenage boys no longer stare at your chest.
You started finding talk radio to be interesting.
You either go out Friday or Saturday, but not both...that would be crazy.
It makes your day when you get carded for alcohol.
You nap....because you need to.
Blasting your car music is a little embarrassing.  That is why you quickly turn the tunes down the second you get to a stop light.
You accidentally catch yourself saying "OMG, when I was your age..."
All of the creepy people from your highschool start contacting you for dates.
You are generally the oldest person at a Lil Wayne concert.
People call you Ma'am instead of Miss.  Word to the wise...never call a female Ma'am....unless you are ready to get the stink eye.
You have nightmares about your boss and work. You might even wake up in a cold sweat. 
Book clubs are cool.  So is volunteering, pumpkin patches and apple picking.
You're not scared to yell at your neighbors for whatever stupid sh*t they are doing. 
You want more money $$$.  Okay okay...that's probably something you have always wanted.
You still watch MTV shows (i.e. Teen Mom, Awkward, Teen Wolf, Jersey Shore, The Challenge, Real World).
You begin dreading your mail.  Bills, bills and more bills.  It's a perk when you get a wedding invitation and your Victoria Secret catalog. Woot Woot
Half your friends are on anxiety pills.
Motion sickness!  On a bus, in a car, on a train and definitely on a boat. 
You get frustrated when your friends steal your baby names.  Can we say Rachel and Monica. ;)
You might borrow your friend's kid to pick up chicks if you're a guy and you might borrow your friend's dog to pick up hot guys if you are a girl.  Not that I have ever done this....

Got any that we missed?....add them!

Fall TV Preview of Ringer

If you have been missing Sarah Michelle Gellar, you will love the CW's new show, Ringer. You get double the Sarah. 

Still of Sarah Michelle in Ringer
SMG plays twins who have had a falling out. One, Bridget, a recovering addict who witnesses a mob hit. The other, Siobhan, who's married life in New York, seems perfect. Bridget fearing for her life makes a move to New York to hide and try to re-connect with her sister. But Siobhan has an accident and disappears, when Bridget decides to take her place. Little does she realize that Siobhan's life is not as wonderful as it looks. From problems in her marriage to someone trying to kill Siobhan, Bridget may have made the wrong decision for a safer life.

For those CW fans, if you remember the show Life Unexpected (Still sad that show was cancelled), Lux's dad is Kristoffer Polaha, who plays the husband of Siobhan's best friend and Siobhan's lover.

Are we in a fashion crisis?

Have you looked at this years fashion and asked yourself...Why?  Why are they selling this?  Why would anyone design an outfit like this?  Some of the styles the big name stores are selling are really different.

Billow TopDiane Von Furstenberg has this strange senorita look in their Fall Look Book.  Let me ask...would you do a double take if you saw someone wearing this outfit on the street? Uhh...........yeah!
