Need a Celebrity?

I have to admit that I am often star struck when I see a celebrity. I gawk with the rest of them!

So, it was only natural for me to seek out a way for Celebrities to wear my tees' - Wear Your Manners - and the best and only way I was successful was by using Contact Any Celebrity.

Contact Any Celebrity - - has a huge data base of info that will give you the actors agents name, address, phone number, charities that actor works with, managers info plus lots more.

Using this information, I sent out tons of tee's with my press kit and ended up being a such a success story that the owner of Contact Any Celebrity interviewed me and put my story and info in his book!

Here's the success story: One morning I woke up to find an email from Doug and Laura Savant (Desperate Housewife/Melrose Place) in my in box and let me tell you, I was so excited and shocked that I couldn't even open the email for a few minutes!

After I read the email, I emailed them back (oh my gosh, I had their private email address!) and asked for their permission to quote them in my press kits, on line and in the media. They sent over an "approved" quote which you can read on my website,

Having this quote helped land me on several TV spots, magazine articles and websites.

So if it's Celebrities you crave to get the word out about your product, check out Contact Any Celebrity!

Good luck and who knows, Jennifer Aniston could be photographed with YOUR invention!

My Daughter went to a sweetheart dance with her Daddy last night. Something they both had been looking forward to and I took some adorable pictures.

Along with dancing and eating yummy cupcakes, there was a hula hoop contest. The winner got an MPR player and Brooke wanted to win it to give to her brother. Brooke is really good at hula hooping but you had to be fast to grab one of the few hoops. Well she was quick and got herself a hoop.

But then...the class Drama Queen stood in front of her and started WAILING that she did not get a hoop and could Brooke "Please, please, please give her hers". My Husband said it was quite the scene.

Brooke felt that she did not have a choice but to hand it over. The fake tears and loud cries were just to much for her and she felt backed into a corner.

Well, the Drama Queen does not know how to hula hoop and it feel right to the floor. You're out.

When Brooke came home crying, it was not for the missed opportunity for wining the MPR player, it was for the total frustration of feeling duped.

Even though my Husband and I teach "doing for others", there is also a time to just say "no" and put yourself first.

A hard lesson to learn but unfortunately, a necessary one. Even if you are eight.

Today is my Birthday!

People keep asking how I feel being 40 or if I'm "sad" that I am 40 and my answer is this, "I am happier today than I have ever been so why should I feel stressed about being 40".

I am blessed beyond belief and I thank God everyday for all of my years and hopefully many, many more to come!

Oh yes, and it's Super Bowl today! What a day! :)
