Last Day for Giveaway! And A Story!

Today is the last day to enter to win this oh so cute and versatile scarf! Go here to enter! Hurry!! All you have to do is leave me a comment! You have until 11:59 pm EST! Good luck!!

Now on to my story! A few weeks ago I was having a horrible day. I was moody and sad, and it was all due to hormones. I wanted to get away from the house for a little while, so I went grocery shopping. Not sure my reasoning on that one because I hate grocery shopping, but that is where I ended up.

As I walked into Kroger, I spotted a huge display of toys. I scanned the toys (because I am a huge kid and love toys) and quickly spied a Sea Monkey Kit. I was never allowed to have Sea Monkeys as a child, so I immediately decided I was going to buy them. My friend, Katie O., put it best when she said, "Sometimes you go grocery shopping and all you buy is Sea Monkeys and 4 cartons of chocolate ice cream and that's okay."

I followed the direction on my Sea Monkey Kit very carefully. In just a few days, I had Sea Monkeys! How exciting! I called my mom and proclaimed that I had done something that no one else on the face of the Earth has ever been able to accomplish-I had successfully hatched Sea Monkeys! :) My mom still doesn't believe that I hatched Sea Monkeys, but I am sure to show them off to all everyone who comes to our house.

In the photo below you can see me teaching my Sea Monkeys a few tricks! They respond well to bananas and other treats! Ha! Ha! Only kidding! Sorry I found this picture and could not resist!

In reality, my Sea Monkeys are too little to be able to see in photographs, but here are a few pictures I found on the web of what Sea Monkeys really look like. Just a warning, they are a little scary looking!
Hormonal days can make you do funny things like buy Sea Monkeys. I guess my husband should just be thankful that I didn't happen to visit the pet store (located next to Kroger) that day! We might have ended up with a new puppy or kitten or guinea pig or ferret or maybe all of the above! :)

I love sea monkeys-- it has always been an on-going joke at my house (along with ant farms) because like you said before... we could never keep them alive but I ALWAYS wanted to buy them HA! Love the post :)

When you’re feeling like that, the hormones definitely take over. I totally remember seeing ads for sea monkeys in the back of books and magazines as a kid. I always wanted them too. I love that you bought them as an adult. They’re strange looking little creatures!
