Yeeeeeee haw! I’m back
in the saddle from Seattle! Did you miss me? Didja? Didja? I hope so, because I missed you ever so much…
I have to say that the awesomest thing about coming back from vacation is the tower of packages that were patiently waiting for my sticky lil’ fingers to tear them open. The worst part? Realizing that the second I stepped foot into my house again, my fabulous vacation away from big-kid life was over. Wah-wah.
Back to work, back to being an “adult” (well, kinda sorta), and back to all of those lovely grown up responsibilities that were also piling up for me while I was away. The only natural thing I could do was drink wine. So, I drank wine. Lots of it.
Oh, aaaaaaaaaaaaand, thanks to FunSlurp I had some sweet imbibing-goodies. Unique gift givers and fellow prank-product lovers? Meet your new friendship.
Yey !!! So, who the heck is FunSlurp???
HERE’S WHAT THEY SAY (in a nutshell): “FunSlurp.com offers awesome Unique Products, Gag Gifts, and Pranks”.
HERE’S WHAT I SAY: This place seriously has some unique stuff. And, it’s not just gag gifts and prank stuff (although I find those products ridiculously fabulous and totes wanna cause trouble). No, no. They have stuff for EVERYONE:
- Facial hair lovers who like to drink cold beverages? Hook yourself up with a Mustache Ice Cube Tray.
- Wanna make sure your neighbors know you brought the steaks to the block party? Better get the BBQ Branding Iron.
- Oh, lady cupcake bakers? How about measuring out those fancy ingredients with your beauty-ful Flower Measuring Cups?
Life is crazy as it is. I say, why not add a lil’ spice to it (in the form of unique stuff from FunSlurp, duh). Feel free to take a peek at what they hooked me up with, and stalk your prankster heart out:
WINE CADDY: I mean, what says “drink me” more than a bottle of liquid fancy dressed in Lederhosen? Find yours: here (for $12.49)
MUSTACHE COASTERS: When I opened these up I LOL’d a little bit. Every coaster is a different mustache shape – including this one (my fave) – Kinda makes me wanna call up the Mariachi brothers and make a total fool of myself. Si Senor…Si. Find yours: here (for $ bucks).
And, last but certainly NOT least is the BACON BALM. Bacon lips? Meet your new bestie. It’s as if this lip balm was made for me. Seriously, if you love bacon, this balm (I hate that word, but this balm is the bomb!) is too legit to quit. I can’t believe how true to taste it was. Sue-weeeeeeeeeeee! Find yours: here (for $ bucks).
Hope you are having a FABULOUS Monday.
Time for me to obsessively apply and lick off my bacon balm.
It’s gonna be disgusting.
PEACE, LOVE and FunSlurp!

Oh, the days. The days when I danced around the house in my hammer pants and bum equipment sweatshirt swoonin’ over Donnie Wahlburg. My moves were undeniable. My bangs? At least 10 inches high. It was the year I broke up with my boyfriend because he had a funny haircut. Besides, it was only a matter of time before Donnie came to my junior high school and professed his love. Step by Step, oooohhhh baby. Really wantcha in my wor-er-er-er-ald. Yes, Donnie. I accept.
Cue screeching record and calendar rapidly flipping (ahem) twenty-three years (P.S. I just barfed), and the boys are back! In celebration of their return, I’d like all of my birthday cards to come from these peeps:
BOY BAND SENTIMENTS “Hang Tough”. Still to this day I have no clue what “Hangin Tough” means. But, I’m totally going to start saying it as a throwback to my youth (find it: here for $3.50).
….My fave? BOY BAND SENTIMENTS ”The Right Stuff (4pk)”. I’ve totally got the right stuff! Don’t be jelly of my status. Furthermore, since my birthday is a multi-day affair, these cards would probably be the most suitable pick to honor and celebrate my existance (Find em’: here for $8 bucks).
New Kids not your thang? Boy Band Sentiments has you covered. Check out these other great “boy band” cards and generously stalk this killer Etsy shop:

Guuuummmmmy bears!! Bouncing here and there and every-wheeeerrrre…..Oh sorry. I’m not sure if you have been introduced to the giant gummy bear yet, but I’m pretty sure this is the awesomest thing I’ve ever seen in my life. My birthday is coming up and it would be pretty sweet to get one of these. I’d then lock myself in a closet and stuff my grill for…I don’t know…27 days or so?
Prepare to drool:
convinced it couldn’t get any better than a giant gummy bear? Think again:
ha.ha.ha. Thank you Vat19 gifts for such awesomness.
Happy “day I hate to spell”
P.S. If you’re not yet familiar with my loathing of spelling the word “Wednes…” (ew) click here)
P.S.S. Gummy Snake.

I admit, that “growing stuff” has never been my strong suit. Let’s set the scene:
Girl walks into room that has a beautifully flourishing plant.
Plant screams & dies.
Plants in surrounding towns, villages and cities also bite the dust.
I’m a plant murderer.
But, I think my luck might be changing. Something interesting has happened recently and I’m not sure how it’s humanly possible. I, the queen assasinator of greens, has grown something. The fancy flower pictured above is the very first ever plant that I have successfully cultivated and (gasp) watched bloom. Not once, but twice! I’m such an overachiever.
Seriously though – I grew the thing, watered it sparingly, taunted it a little, it bloomed, then died, and somehow resurrected, and it just bloomed again. Four obnoxiously gorgeous red flowers. I’m kinda a big deal these days so naturally, I’ve become obsessed with terrariums.
Cue, Face of the Earth.
Holy Terrarium awesomeness! I’m not even sure how to take care of one of these, but I think I need the Valentine’s day gnome to hook me up with one, like A-SAP.
Here’s what’s on my love-list…
VALENTINE’S TERRARIUM: LITTLE NOM NOM MONSTER: I have no clue who this little monster guy is, but he is freaking cuuuuuuuuuutttttte! And, this terrarium looks like it’s made for a “novice gardener” like myself, so I’m thinkin’ it’s a perfect fit. Find it: here (for $50 bucks)
MOVIE MINIATURES: SCALE MODEL BEATLEJUICE TERRARIUM: Oh my god, I love this movie. I’m pretty sure that if I got this terrarium I’d finally have the opportunity to meet Beatlejuice for reals. You can start calling me Lydia Deetz from here on out. Beatlejuice! Beatlejuice! Beatlej….just kidding. I mean, I know what saying “Beatlejuice” three times means….oh, crap. Find it: here for ($250 bucks)
For my dude…
MOVIE MINIATURES: BAG END HOBBIT TERRARIUM, LORD OF THE RINGS: Funny story about The Hobbit. A couple of months ago the man and I were at the “thee-ay-ter” and saw the previews for The Hobbit movie. I, casually and confidently whispered “I remember this movie!” thinking I would (a) impress him with my typically non-existent knowledge and care for nerd flicks; and (b) prove that I do in fact pay attention to those weird movies when they are on in my house. He, laughed rather hysterically prior to informing me that it was a brand new movie, therefore rendering me a stupid idiot. Whatever, there’s like 4,000 of them. I don’t know how you people keep this shit straight. Find it: here (for $250 bucks)
BIGFOOT OPEN TERRARIUM: HIKER VS. SASQUATCH: Don’t mind me. Just doin’ a lil’ squatchin. I’m pretty sure if we got this, the dudes from “Finding Bigfoot” would show up at our house with the whole team to shoot an episode. I mean our little love-nest in the city is the perfect habitat for a big foot. Find it: here for ($90 bucks)
“It began with a hike in the woods when I was fairly new to this planet, and grew to a study of art, into a business of making others happy while making myself happy too.”
Rachel Bishop is the talented lady behind these super fun terrariums. She’s got quite the arsenal of artistic talent in addition to her fab terrarium work. Visit her website to scope out her Illustrations, Graphic Design, Jewelry & Fiberwork. Feel free to stalk her like your life depended on it. It probably does.
Who am I kidding? I don’t think I’ve ever picked up a tennis racket in my life! Wait, that’s not true. I did pick one up in high school gym class one time. But I immediately put it down and headed up to the cafeteria to hang with my peeps instead. I’m pretty sure that was the day I was dared to do the “dolphin” (the worm) across a line of cafeteria tables for the handsome prize of fifteen, oozy-gooey, half-baked chocolate chip cookies. Naturally, I accepted the challenge. You have no idea how divinely intoxicating those cookies were.
Oh, yeah. Tennis. I was talking about Tennis because Maria Sharapova plays tennis. Maria Sharapova also has her own candy line – and these candies look sweet & playful, so therefore I must blab about them. Fellow sugar junkies and high-school gym class skippers? Meet Sugarpova.
Maria (yes, we are on a first name basis) has a sweet tooth and wanted to offer her playful and stylish interpretation of some classic candies. So, being the international tennis sensation she is, she called her people, her people called someone else’s people, and boom – fancy candy. Maybe that’s not exactly how it happened, but you get the gist.
The bonus? A portion of the sales are donated to the Maria Sharapova Foundation – this fab foundation helps children around the world achieve their dreams.
I love a product that gives back! Scope out some of these sugary dreams below – and don’t forget to stalk the awesomeness. Click here to see if you’re one of those lucky duckers that has a store in your city.
