Droppin a Turkey...

So the deadline for entering my contest (Oct 15th) is approaching. So far, the following people are joining me in my quest to drop the size of an average Turkey before Thanksgiving:

If any others want to sign up, email me at or leave a comment. You need to record your weight and your losses on a weekly basis and report the results in to me. You do not have to reveal your actual weight, just the pounds lost. Remember, the person losing the highest PERCENTAGE of weight by December 1st wins the five buckarooni gift card to Starbucks.

In case any of you needed further proof what a classy operation we run around here, I present the following video of my youngest spawn bustin' her moves to the all time classic...


Yeah, baby. The Safety Dance. Now the song will be stuck in your head all day. You're welcome.

(and no, before you ask, I did NOT teach her to stop dancing in order to pick her nose.)

However, one could argue that stopping the dancing in order to pick one's nose is an excellent example of appropriate safety measures while enjoying the dance. Well done little Lady!

Hey, if ever there was a time for nose picking, it's in the middle of the Safety Dance.

I'm still giggling--and now I have a weird mashup of "Safety Dance", "Blue Velvet" and "Singin' in the Rain" circling in my head. Alrighty, then.

Too Cute - I think she is now ready for Dancing with the Stars. I would totally bet on her.

Adorable! Girlfriend has moves! The nose manuever is chez classy! Dropping a turkey before Thanksgiving? Wow, um, hm. How many people should this turkey feed? If we're talking a 10 lb turkey. I'll go for it!

If you could find a way to keep a pre-schooler from the nose-pick, you'd be a rich woman. No doubt. And I'd hire you to consult.
