More Punk Baby Names

You know I'm one of those people that likes to make lists. And one of my favorite things to make lists of - is names... baby names lists.

Okay, I've been thinking back to some of my old lists from high school... there are some more "out there" names on the list... I guess you could say, they are more punk.

Zeegus (First saw it on a list in the temple... but I never really knew how to pronounce it... or where is comes from - Dutch maybe?)
Shelby (It's a rad car... a unisex name; I like it better for a girl... only problem with this name... it reminds me of this song - "she'll be coming around the mountain when she comes" - she'll be sounds like shelby - see the problem?)
Belly (Just because - it's cuter than Belle)
Olive (Just because - it's cuter than Olivia)

Moby (Why I liked it - Moby...still like it)
Trekiev (Why I liked it - sounds Russian... Why I stopped liking it - sounds like trachea)
Kelso (Not because of that 70's show... but because there was this really hot guy in my psychology class that I almost sort of stalked - and this was his last name)

Okay, I have also checked out my list of friends on FB and I will tell you which ones are the most unique sounding... and I will also share with you the most common names... 

Camarie (a variation of the ever popular Marie)
Celeste (so heavenly - she's my cousin)
Fabianna (sounds fabulous)
Gaelle (even better than Belle - that's pronounced guy-elle)
Galadriel (her mom was a big fan of Tolkien)
Genei Simone (BFF)
Ginger (come on - who doesn't like ginger?!)
Hafida (I recognize that this might be common in a country like Morocco - but it's not in America)
KaeCie Rae
Lluvia (Spanish - means rain)
Lolly (much better than Dolly -which every little girl names their first Doll [Nickname though: I think her actual name is Lauralene])
Monterey/Monti (These are two different people I know)
Ratna (she's Asian - so yeah!)
Roisin (Irish - and very pretty when you know how to pronounce it)
Shealyn (my BBS)
Wonjeong (we called her Joe - those Koreans know how to pronounce that one)


As there are not that many uncommon guy names, I shall list some cool last names that could make cool first names:

Beck (Now that's cool!)
Corwin (Kinda like Corbin)
Deza (Sounds feminine - like Daisy)
Hug (Yes, this is a last name - but why not a first - I mean, some people name their kid Happy - so why not Hug? It could be a variation of Hugh!)
Zang (Yes!)

And finally - the most common names of my FB friends:
Rachel and Michelle. So, consider something else if you want your kids not to have the name of an aunt or Mom's best friend!

The Tilted Kiln, St George, Utah... pottery and ceramics!

The Tilted Kiln
215 W St. George Blvd
Hours: Tuesday - Friday 12:00-8:00; Saturday 10:00-6:00

Today the children and I got to play with clay at The Tilted Kiln in St. George. I had driven past this pottery studio many times not realizing all the fun things it has to offer.

It's not just a pottery shop, though there is a section that some great local artists have pottery for sale. It has a section of ceramics that you can buy and paint yourself and they will cook it again after that. 

That was fun to see. So many great ideas, from painting a large platter with the family name or something like "Dad's Burgers"to piggy banks and garden gnomes. They also had quite a few Christmas related ceramic crafts to paint.

My kids and I had so much fun browsing the ideas and we surely will find ourselves back in the shop come summer vacation! :)

You can come back for parties or other group activities and they have cla…

Best Streets to Trick or Treat in Dixie, Southern Utah

This is going to have to be an ongoing post... what I mean, is I might have to update it again next year.

This is going to be a very big deal this year. My kids have never experienced real American Trick or Treating. I have talked about it, and they have seen it on tv shows over the years and they are very excited. As am I!

This is why I wanted to pick a neighborhood that would be awesome for their first experience. Originally, I had planned to spend the weekend with my brother and his family in Spanish Fork, Utah. They live in a neighborhood with about a million kids so it was going to be perfect... but since the flu has affected everyone lately, and since my whole family was sick to death of road trips since we moved back here, we decided to stay in St. George.

This posed a problem for me. I didn't know where the best street was. After a quick google search, I found nothing! No one has blogged about this, at least, not in the first three or four pages of a google search.

I did find …

Making Friends 101

After moving back to the U.S. - there was definitely a readjustment period for me. So, I put time into starting a blog. And then getting myself out there, making friends and getting involved and going places and doing things with the children.

Then when I did that, and I did it successfully, there really was no time to blog about how great St. George is. I have come across a few other mommy bloggers that have attempted to explain just how great this area is, but after a time, everyone kinda stops and it's because we are enjoying the sunshine and the nature and all that this area has to offer that we stop blogging or just don't do it as often.

Recently a good friend, Michelle, that I met shortly after moving here, asked if I would write some blog posts for her on her blog Green Kale and Yams about my recent change has a Vitamix owner. I said, yes.

Now it's time to get the word out, that I have switched over from using a cheap model smoothie maker to an Americ…
