What Really Grinds My Gears

It is no secret that I am a "woman of size". I can't hide it. I have learned to accept it, for now.

I get plus size clothing catalogs in the mail, and what REALLY "Grinds my Gears" is that they use these twiggy women to model the clothing!!!

This makes ordering tough, because clothing looks and hangs differently on a woman that is a size 2 (or even smaller) vs. a size 20 or even a size 12 woman.

Do they really think it would turn people away to see plus size women model plus size clothes in a catalog that is specifically geared toward a plus sized audience?

Random Thoughts

I have decided to start a new feature on my blog... Random Thoughts. It is just something for me to be able to get out the things in my head so I can go about my day.

My 100th Post! A New Look, A New Name and… A GIVEAWAY!!

I have been wondering what to post for this momentous occasion. I started my blog in 2007 to document our house being built, because our families are spread out across the U.S.

My friend April in CA encouraged me to start blogging and I had NO idea what I would write about and here I am writing about EVERYTHING.

I originally decided to name my blog Ponderosa Jr., because it was all about my house. My hubby’s parents live in Northern New Mexico and my father-in-law, refers to their place as “The Ponderosa”. Having lived up there for a while after Mike and I got married, I fell in love with the place and so when we moved to Las Cruces, I nicknamed our house the Ponderosa Jr. Since my blog is no longer about our house, I decided to rename it. The link is still the same, so in your blog list, be sure to change the name. I will officially change it in 1 week in my settings.

So, to shamelessly plug my blog and to say thank you to all my readers and followers, I am giving away…..

1. Burt’s Bees Travel Kit

2. Mini Gel Pens

3. Monopoly Deal card game (we just bought it, it is soooo fun!!)

4. Magnetic Note Pads

5. Mini Bowling Game

6. Fiji Apple Body Butter

7. Whoopie Cushion

8. Flart - “Noise Putty” use your imagination

9. Parents easy scrapbook

10. Hair Wrap Towel
