Thursdays Tunes: Over My Head (Cable Car)

Every time i get REALLY busy and overwhelmed... for some reason this song playes in my head on repeat... not even the whole song... just the "Everyone knows im in.. over my head, over my head" part, lol over and over and over... I thought I would give you a sneak peek in to my sanity... or insanity... im not sure which, lol

p.s. the kid in the video is his lil Bro... too cute :)

The Fray
"Lyrics to Over My Head (Cable Car) :
I never knew
I never knew that everything was falling through
That everyone I knew was waiting on a queue
To turn and run when all I needed was the truth
But that's how it's got to be
It's coming down to nothing more than apathy
I'd rather run the other way than stay and see
The smoke and who's still standing when it clears

Everyone knows I'm in
Over my head
Over my head

With eight seconds left in overtime
She's on your mind
She's on your mind

Let's rearrange
I wish you were a stranger I could disengage
Just say that we agree and then never change
Soften a bit until we all just get along
But that's disregard
Find another friend and you discard
As you lose the argument in a cable car
Hanging above as the canyon comes between

Everyone knows I'm in
Over my head
Over my head

With eight seconds left in overtime
She's on your mind
She's on your mind

Everyone knows I'm in
Over my head
Over my head

With eight seconds left in overtime
She's on your mind
She's on your mind

And suddenly I become a part of your past
I'm becoming the part that don't last
I'm losing you and its effortless
Without a sound we lose sight of the ground
In the throw around
Never thought that you wanted to bring it down
I won't let it go down till we torch it ourselves

And everyone knows I'm in
Over my head
Over my head

With eight seconds left in overtime
She's on your mind
She's on your mind

Everyone knows
She's on your mind
Everyone knows I'm in over my head
I'm in over my head
I'm in over...

Everyone knows I'm in
Over my head
Over my head

With eight seconds left in overtime
She's on your mind

Thirsty Thursday: My own little concoction...

Another Thirsty Thursday is among us... and after the days zaq & i both had yesterday... it was DUE time for a drink... So this has been my new favorite... cocktail lately... and I came up with it quite randomly, btu I gotta say its FANTASTIC... And did i mention its pretty too?

So... maybe thats not my exact photo I got it from Napoleon Place... but it pretty much looks just like that... but the orange is on bottom & the red secret ingredient is on the top. YUMMM... its 12:30 too early for another? Probably... Now a name... a name... lets call it... The RockerByeBoozin', lol I think that works nicely... Heres how you can make it... PLEASE make it... drink it.... love it... but if you take this recipe... Give credit where its due ;)

The RockerByeBoozin'
For an 8 ounce glass...
Fill with ice...
First, add 2oz. Vodka (I like SKYY)
I like to do the vodka first because then the other ingredients mix it up without having to stir...
Next, add 2oz. Orange Juice...
now here is the kicker ;)
Finally... fill to the top with DIET (or regular) CRANBERRY SIERRA MIST
And garnish if you feel it necessary!

I promise it is AMAZINGGGGG... I have been buying the Cran. SM on sale when I can since its seasonal... You can get it at walmart right now for .88 for a 2-liter bottle.
Try it out and tell me what you think!!
Whats your favorite home made cocktail recipe?!

Be it stinky people with sensitive skin... hippies that are good to the earth...
or us cloth diapering mommies that are a little of all 3 rolled into one...
Rockin Green is just what you need.

Any of you that read my blog know a few key things about me...
#1. Im becoming like... 50% hippie...
just 50% because if I was 100% hippie, i think husband would file for divorce...
#2. Ive started cloth diapering...
#3. I love anything with a skull and crossbones on it.

And all of these things make me LOVE ROCKin Green Soaps...
Why else do I love them?
"Rockin’ Green is:

Now, I started using two different samples of detergents at the same time...
not the same load, duh... just trying out two different diaper soap brands...
the first one... whom i will not mention here :(
was SOOOOO overwhelmingly potent with smell hubby said he couldn't even breathe...
*dramatic, maybe... but it was pretty intense*
Not to mention... it was irritating Zaverys little... junk?
Then there was Rockin Green... sweet subtle scents...
A perfectly frothy sudz up in the wash...

And after a good cold pre-rinse & then wash with Rockin' Green...
The diapers came out fresh... and clean...
The second time around I used it as a pre-rinse first...
then a soak with a few scoops full...
and then the wash.
It worked GREAT! The diapers were SO clean...
and super super super absorbent from getting all the gunk out.
