Getting Jiggy With It

This is a picture of me and the girls (Leah, Paige and Libby) on Mother's Day after we got back from church and lunch. I'm wearing my maxi dress I bought in the maternity section at Target. No I'm not pregnant, but the dress was too cute. The fashion magazines are saying the maxi is back. I'm seeing them in stores a lot now. This is what I had to tell Buster when he wondered why I was wearing a long dress. You know these poor business men, they wear navy trousers and black socks and shoes nearly everyday of their lives. They just don't get much variety. So you have to educate them. Anyway...the picture was....

Just before I opened this::::

Yes, I got a Wii Fit and an Ipod Touch. I did not know what to expect this Mother's Day. I had requested a kitchen composter. But Buster wouldn't buy it for Mother's Day. The story goes they went to the Best B*y to purchase the Ipod and the WiiFit was sitting right next to it. Leah wanted me to have the WiiFit. It will be fun for all of us. I know some women wouldn't be happy to get a fitness item for Mother's Day, but I'm good with it.

My Mii's name on Wii Fit is Jiggy.

It cracks me up....when you step on the little platform it makes this sound "ohhh" (interpreted...oh my have we gained a few)
You look pretty silly doing some of the activities like hula hooping with no hula hoop. But boy you feel it when your finished.

I also set up my Ipod Touch on Sunday. That was a different story. I'm excited to have it, but just trying to get it to connect to the internet caused a spike in blood pressure. I deleted some code in my settings that made my router quit working. So I had to bypass the router and plug directly into the modem so I could get internet back and I could call support. An hour later I hung up the phone with this nice girl from who knows where. She help me get everything working again including my IPod Touch connecting to the internet. My blood pressure eventually returned to normal. I needed that Wii Fit Yoga after that for sure.

This is the back of the beautiful card Leah made me. One of the 4th grade teachers took their picture. I love it.

On Saturday I treated myself to a pedicure (long overdue). I took Paige with me and she got a manicure and her nails painted a pretty shade of green. I've never been in this particular nail salon. When I walked up to the counter to pay, I looked down and saw this sign taped to the counter. I acted like I was finding something in my purse so I could wait for the lady to walk back to her customer and I took a picture with my phone. I'm sorry but does this strike anyone else funny or is it just me. [I apologize if I have offended anyone. I'm not usually rated over a G rating on this blog.]

So that was the weekend in a nutshell or a nut post. Which ever you prefer.

a.k.a. Jiggy

You are "HO" funny, Jiggy!


Susan said...

All right "Jiggy" you are double blessed and after using that WII you'll be "Slimmy" and put us all to shame. I like CM's comment: You are "Ho" funny.

Melody said...

Tiffany said...

Wow! What a great Mother's Day! I would love a WiiFit! And I would love for my Mii to be called Jiggy, too!

And the sign - cracked me up. I had to cover my mouth from laughing outloud.

Happy (belated) Mother's Day!

Berni aka Vic Grace said...

That Wii Fit sounds like fun and a maxi dress would be just the thing I will have to look for one. What a great Mother's Day you had and two lovely daughters as well.

Pam said...

Thy Ho! How funny!
You are so cute in that Maxi. I remember sewing a few in my home-ec. class back in the 70's! I've noticed them a lot on t.v. lately.

Great mother's day gifts! My blood pressure goes up each time I get a new piece of technology too!

Suzanne said...

Oh my gosh-- Thy Ho. I just sneezed/laughed tea all over my screen. :)

I like the dress. I still wear my Target maternity shorts. :)

Keeper of the Skies Wife said...

Oh Jiggy!!! Cute! Sometime I hate it when the Wii says, "OH!" hehe

Love the homemade card!!! Those are always the best!!

The dress is so stinking CUTE!! I need to head to Target!

Betty said...

Sounded like a great mother´s day! You and your girls looks so good together! And boy did they ever get you a gift!

Charity Joy Bell Childs said...

Charity Joy Bell Childs said...

I think that your fitness Wii is awesome! Why wouldn't you be happy with it??? Why would anybody not be happy with that!!! That's awesome! You get to be hyper! And in a silly way, too!!!! :)

That picture of your daughter is so beautiful.


Jungle Mom said...

Ok that is so funny! THY HO! And I have a Wii fit ad it says 'OHHH!' to me a lot!

As to your question, my family member on the cast was Julie McCullough who played as Mike's girl friend (Julie Costello). She was fired for well,'indecent exposure' I guess you could say.(Play Boy)

Pam said...

Came by to see how Jiggy's doing!
I just noticed you have one of my favorite movies listed on your profile, "Driving Miss Daisy"! My mom drove an elderly Jewish lady around for 10 years or so. We said she was "driving Miss Daisy" but mom's little lady was much nicer and pleasant than Miss Daisy! When she passed, she left my mom $10,000.00!!!! and the family so loved mom that she was invited to the graveside service which is for family only, then mom got to speak at the memorial service in Temple! I learned so much about the Jewish families during those years mom was in their inner circle.

I thought it was hilarious... the Ho! You look too cute in your Maxi dress... yes they are the hit thing this spring all husbands need a seasonal education on what's in! Your daughters are adorable.

The Farmer Files said...

Every time I walk into the maternity store they try to get me to try on the maxi. I haven't done it yet. I haven't been inspired until I read your post! ;) I will let you know if I get one!
