Vib.rators, hot flashes, jalepeno jelly, Christmas gift challenge '10, OH MY!

-My Christmas gift challenge this year is to MAKE everything! I had already planned on it for some friends, but then I got to searching for some ideas and think I can make something for everyone on my list! And thanks to GIMH, I have another fun project I'm going to make! My only concern is for the dudes in my life, ie:husband, brothers, FIL, etc... do y'all have any ideas?!? I have a couple but nothing solid.

-Look at this:


Jalepeno jelly. AMAZING. My MIL bought me some at a craft fair because she knows how much I love it! I'm going to search around for a recipe and if I can get it just right that would be awesome!!

-How can this little pill give me the craziest hot flashes ever?!

I seriously get the worst hot flashes ever on Clomid...I wish it meant it was working, but unfortunately I had them last time and my ovaries weren't effected! But...still hopeful that it will respond this time because of my surgery!

-Lastly, and probably the word, from the title, that drew y'all into even reading this post....about this vibr.ator! Last night my husband and I got back from a looooong day of traveling for our nieces baptism. Well, to say I was tired was an understatement because after I crawled into bed, I rolled over and asked my husband if he had "turned on his vibr.ator?" He shot me a crazy look, I realized what I had asked and we burst into laughter!! What I MEANT to say was if he had "turned his PHONE on vibrate?" NOT what I had originally said.

So folks, we do NOT own one of those things, but the story was too funny not to share!!! :)

Happy Monday, y'all!!

I have never heard of jalepeno jelly...it does not sound appetizing to me! Is it hot (as in spicy)?

Thanks for the laugh!

I kid you not with this next story...

My mom, over the phone, told me that she bought a vibrator. As I tried to pick my jaw up off the ground, she then told me that she had used it at work on her lunch break, and was completely relaxed. I couldn't even find words at this point...

THEN, she said that she bought one for me and my husband, since he's been so stressed. I started shrieking at her at this point until she kept explaining and I realized...

She meant a vibrating massager, the kind you hold in your hand and can use on your neck.

It's now a family joke that if anyone feels stressed, we should have mom go get her vibrator.

bahahahaha I love your story, and Lisa's!!! Thanks for the laugh! :)

Do you knit or anything like that? My husband LOVES his hand-knit hat that Beth made :)

K-not really spicy but has a little kick! And I know it doesn't sound great but it is!! If I can master the recipe I'll send you a batch and you most definitely will be a convert! ;)

Lisa-OH MY GOODNESS!!!! I am dying laughing!!!! That is freaking hilarious!!! I would have had trouble not dying right there on the phone...

Mary-no...I have not but I want to learn! It's prob too late this holiday season! Any other ideas?! ;)

Lol Your post and Lisa's comment made me laugh so hard! Thanks for making my day!

As for the hot flashes-I have them WITHOUT Clomid! I can't imagine what they're going to be like if my doctor makes me take it...UGH! I totally understand how awful they are. :(

HA HA HA HA HA!!!!! THAT IS HILARIOUS!!!! Love Lisa's story, too! I know her Mom and can just picture this conversation! Hilarious!!!!

And I know just what you mean about those hot flashes. Lupron is even worse. It's awful. AWFUL. I've never fully recovered and still have crazy hot flashes at night. Fab.

Kaitlin @ More Like Mary said...

Yep-I laughed out loud. Too funny!

And I got major hot flashes too. At least winter is coming!

Funny stories, Lisa & FMTP!

OK, the jelly is not the most appetizing looking stuff, but I'll have to try it some time.

That's hilarious about the vibrator comment! I didn't really have hot flashes, but I don't even know if I would notice since I'm always cold :). I hope you had a great Thanksgiving!

Megan said...

Hilarious! :) Interesting about the jalepeno jelly! I have never heard of that before!

As for the gifts...could you possibly paint college sport logos etc on pilsner glasses for beer? Or create a dvd with the best sports highlights from their favorite team?

Hmmmm... I'll keep thinking!
