As seen on TV

Welcome, The Denver Channel viewers. You might be here because you saw the passel of hassle-saving products I yakked about on TV this morning.

Or you might be here because you’re a regular reader and you’d like to watch me gesticulate wildly on TV again. Here’s the link to this morning’s TV clip (now unavailable).

Either way, if you’re here for product information and links, please click over to my product review blog, All Thumbs Reviews.

While I have your interest, though, consider subscribing here for twice-weekly musings on parenting, open adoption, perfect moments, and the currently running Limerick Chick contest.

Then subscribe to for our sassy thumbs-up/thumbs-down reviews of products and services, often with giveaways and discounts for you. Click over for product descriptions, images and links for the products featured this morning on the telly.

Happy weekend to all!


The Limerick Chick contest closes Monday night — make sure to get your entry in. Voting begins soon so plan to check back next week.

Perfect Moment Monday: Flash mob!

I got to do something I’ve wanted to do ever since I saw this.

I went to a Zumba class at my gym on Saturday and found out that Zumbies from all over Denver were participating in a flash mob that afternoon.

So my 9 year-old videographer and I headed downtown, found a parking place and hustled our way down the pedestrian mall.  We got there just in time to join about 40 or so other mobbers.

Dancing with abandon in the winter sun felt exhilaratingly perfect.

Scratch one off the bucket list.

(Should you want to see from a grown-up’s vantage point, here is the flash mob video taken by my instructor’s husband. We flash mobbed three times along the mall, and this is the first dance, in which I still had a coat on. Tessa’s video is the second dance, where I had shed the coat and was down to a sweat jacket. By the third go-round (no video), I was down to a tank top. Good thing we ran out of mall.)


Perfect Moment Monday is about noticing a perfect moment rather than creating one. Perfect moments can be momentous or ordinary or somewhere in between.

Once a week we engage in mindfulness about something that is right with our world. Everyone is welcome to join.
