The gurgle must be a warning.
I’ve been hearing that gurgle for two days now.
I didn’t listen. I heard it but I didn’t listen.
The toilet is clogged, really, really clogged.
With #2 Poo.
And wait that’s not all.
My husband tried to plunge this #2 poo. Ewwwww.
The #2 poo backed up right out of the shower drain and all over the shower floor.
We have inches of #2 water poo.
Can I come live with you?
Gotta drive my sister to the airport now… so in the meantime….a little business.
First of all, I was shocked to receive an award so soon as I barely have any content here yet but nonetheless it was very thoughtful and I appreciate it so much.
Thank you Pink Note from Pink Notes Diary for the I Love this Blog award!
This year Mom Central is at the ready with ideas and they’re good ones too! They’ve put together a great Father’s Day Gift Guide : They’ve thought of things I never thought of like a tent, a digital camera, even custom steak brands. How cool is that? You’ll want to check that link out for yourself and stop worrying about what to buy. Mom Central did the hard part. You just need to make the purchase.

You’re probably wondering what I’ve been up to while I was offline. Well, bits and pieces people, bits and pieces…
Today I’d like to tell you about my haircut.
I had this great idea about letting my naturally curly and wavy hair be natural for the summer. “Let’s just let it curl and air dry”, I said. “It will need to be much shorter. A LOT shorter,” I recall myself uttering.
She colored, cut and styled my hair and it was adorable: super cute, stylish and looked darn good on me, I must say. I even snapped photos of myself from every angle so I could easily duplicate her handiwork. A permanent grin was affixed to my visage that day.
The next day I went to hell.
My new coiffure is stupid. I’m an idiot: a full blown personification of the word.
It sticks this way, that way, all the way around-a-way and I can’t tame the wicked, wild thing. All I can do is sit tight and anticipate a better day…cuz it’s gotta grow. Dear Lord, it’s gotta grow.
I KNEW there was a reason why I had always worn my hair in one length or long layers. Gadzooks, how could I have forgotten?
I tried to import my old posts and comments but blogger ain’t havin’ it. So I’ve got a blank slate here which is kinda freaky deaky but it’ll fill itself in again with time.
So, what do I do now? I don’t have a flippin’ clue. Well, let’s just start with this post and the rest will fall into place.
So sit back and enjoy the scary ride.
Blueviolet is back.

I’m blueviolet, and my blog is A Nut in a Nutshell. I started blogging in October 2008. I began with writing about my family, my life, observations, and anecdotes, and I have expanded into reviews and giveaways as well.
I am a mom of 2 college-aged children and I love to find fun and laughter in everyday moments. I have a quirky sense of humor which makes blogging a pure delight, no matter what I’m writing about.
I love giving my opinions on products for moms, families, and teens and my blog is dedicated to providing thorough and honest reviews of those items. My family is always on the lookout for new and innovative products to review that are designed to make life a little easier, more interesting and more fun.
We welcome all kinds of products but have a special interest in:
*Products for moms including jewelry, handbags, totes, beauty items, household decor/accessories, small and large appliances, laundry products, cooking and baking products, clothing, shoes, organizational tools, cleaning products, etc.
*Electronic items including cameras, camcorders, printers, video equipment, cell phones, laptops, televisions, sound systems, MP3 players, gadgets
*Anything related to video gaming including systems, components and video games
*Food and drink products (non-alcohol in nature)
*Books/DVD’s and related media
*Games including board games, card games, video games, puzzles, etc.
If I would like to review your product, I will contact you as soon as possible with an address to send your product samples. I do require a sample for all reviews. The sample will not be returned, and you will be responsible for any shipping costs involved.(We also request that the company ship all prizes to the winner of any giveaways directly, if at all possible.)
*My family will personally test out your product and I will write a detailed blog post about the product and our experience with it.
***includes links to your website, product and purchasing information
***includes photos of the product and my testing experiences with it (if applicable)
*Offering a giveaway of your product increases reader interest and also creates a viral message through multiple blogs. Although it is optional, we encourage you to think about offering a giveaway in conjunction with the review.
* Reviews will be posted within 30 days of receipt of product and a link to the review post will be sent to you.
* I only accept reviews that are appropriate for my family and my readers.
I am always looking for great sponsors who would like to get the word out about their business and its products by sponsoring a giveaway of one or more of their items.
*Giveaways will run for a period of 1-2 weeks for items less than $100 in value
*Giveaways will run for a period of three weeks for items over $100 in value
*Each giveaway will be featured in its own exclusive post.
*If you would like to offer a gift certificate as a giveaway item, please make it an amount which will cover the entire purchase including shipping of at least one item in your shop. (If the amount is less than one item, it will be considered a discount coupon and will be offered in conjunction with a review)
*All of my giveaways will require my readers to visit your website and/or blog in order to participate.
*Shipping of giveaway prizes will be taken care of by your company. I will provide the winner’s shipping information to you upon completion of the giveaway. I ask that the item(s) be shipped within 3 weeks after close of giveaway.
*Giveaways will be open to all US residents.
*Winners are chosen by random draw, unless otherwise specified.
*If you would like a featured review of the giveaway item, I would be happy to do so. Please refer to Review Policy for details.
