Slow Speed Humps Ahead

Some funny facts about this strange state that I live in. They do not have speed bumps here in AZ. They have speed "humps". Does anyone else think that is funny? When we first moved here I had to stop and take pictures of the speed hump signs cause I thought it was so funny. I can't help but start singing Black Eyed Peas My Humps every time I pass one. It just kills me.

The DMV (department of motor vehicles) is known here as the MVD (motor vehicle department). Scott had to talk to the MVD last week and kept calling it the DMV. Apparently the lady at the MVD didn't appreciate him calling it the DMV and kept correcting him. Well Scott being in the throes of tax season needed someone to chew out(watch out telemarketers) and kept on calling it DMV. Needless to say he didn't get his question answered but we got a little laugh about Arizonans and their MVD.

This morning I was watching the local morning show and they were covering a piece on poaching large game animals, the reporter was standing in front of the Game and Fish Dept. Excuse me? The game and fish department? I had to call Scott. I think everywhere else in the free world and maybe a few other places it is known as the fish and game department.

Too Funny. Sorry Arizona, I love ya 6 1/2 months out of the year but there are times when you leave me speechless. Which as most of you know is very hard to do.

PS) I have been in slacker mode and haven't posted my give away, contest, necklace picture yet. Sorry. I need to get my creative juices flowing, they are kind of on hold. But don't give up on me! I will be back.

100th Post Contest!


I have been waiting to write this post for just the right moment!

It is my 100th post!

I was talking to my momma the other day telling her I should probably get a job. She told me I had a job, Mamie's. I said "ohhhhhhhh, you are right, I need to stay busy with Mamie's."

It is good for me, I love it. I have plenty to create and think about it often. I do have a hard time staying motivated, but this I will address in a later post. I do have grand expectations for Mamie's, I want to change Mamie's the blog into Mamie's the website. At the end of the summer my goal is to have an etsy shop. All of these plan's are slowly morphing into sweet reality. So stay tuned, I love sharing.

For this 100th milestone, lets have a contest. To win my first piece of steampunk jewelry. Get your friends to comment leaving your name in the comment section. Whoever has the most friends stopping by to say hi gets it! Yes, it is finished. Almost, I picked it up from Meliss's last night. Trust me, it is worth it!
