Jane by Design... cancelled!

So, I'm not really one of those people that watches a lot of TV. I don't even really like most of the programs on there. One of the biggest problems is - I watch a pilot and a few episodes and I think - this show is genius and then after one season, they've lost me... or I've lost interest.

Then along came Jane. I was totally hooked on this show. It's true that it was a bit soapy - and I couldn't stand India.... but I loved the chemistry between Billy and Jane and between Rita and Ben. I was watching it on Netflix and almost half way through the first season when I googled it for more info. and found out within days that ABC family would not be re-newing it for a second season. 

I was totally bummed. I still watched the entire first season, knowing that I would never see Billy and Jane kiss. I thought about writing a letter to the execs at ABC... and I thought about starting an online petition... although, if I do a quick search, I could probably already find one... but in the end, I've forgotten about it and just let it go.

After all, I'm not really a big TV person anyway. I really prefer movies because they tell a story much quicker. 

Anyway, did anyone else notice the names in Jane by Design? I heard a lot of familiar oldies but goodies.


The name that stands out most is Billy. Because my Dad is called Bill and when he was a boy - Grandma called him Billy. And I have always thought about using my Dad's name for one of my future sons - but more as a middle name... but since watching Billy and Jane on my TV screen - I've taken a real liking to the name Billy.

So I suggested to my husband that we use this name for our future son... and then Kailea, my oldest girl (6 years old) says to me... Bill! That means bum - pointing at her rear end. And it occurs to me, aah man,  I finally take a liking to this name but I could never use it because it means Ass in Dutch.

You see, that just really sucks!!

But that's okay, because I've got a list of fall back names over here and here.

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 …

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…

Punk Baby Names

What do I like to do for fun? Look at my stats on blogger... for example you can see what search terms bring people to your site.

The top 4 search terms which bring people to my site are:

1.  speculoos hagel   ~very understandable - I did a post about these when they first showed up in the supermarket by my house. They are pretty good - but not nearly as good as crunchy speculoos pasta - which I avoid buying because it's that good... it's like that saying - an ounce on the lips - a pound on the hips... well yeah - that's about right!

2. -   ~mmmm - self explanatory

3. spumoni cake   ~ ahh, yes - delicious... or as they say in Italian: delizioso! The original post can be seen here

4. punk baby names   ~um, yeah, I've probably talked about baby names in the past. Let me do a quick search on my site to see what comes up...yep... 3 hits - 3 times I talked about baby names in past posts. But to say punk baby names - no - not really.

Now really - you g…
