Papa Nacho

Song lyrics can be so personal, often speaking to the unspoken parts of our heart and soul. They also can be the source of some really funny moments when they are misunderstood. In fact, some of our most favorite commercials have been made over this idea. 

The moment The Boy learned that the Queen's song "We Will Rock You" said...

You got blood on yo' face
You big disgrace
Wavin' you banner all over the place

and not ...

Wavin' your bladder all over the place

is one The Husband and I will never forget. 

The Boy describes this moment as his "all time low!"  At the time, all he could say was it made so much more sense. Seriously,  this moment  has provided The Husband and I with many moments of happiness over the year. 

This past weekend, The Short Chic spent the night with one of her friends. They played Just Dance to what The Short Chic called, "80's music." She started listing off some of the songs they danced along with, "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" "Monster Mash" and "Papa Nacho." She identified "Papa Nacho" as her favorite.

You should be picturing The Husband and I scratching our heads at this point. Papa Nacho. Papa Nacho?

Calmly, The Husband and I both told her we were not familiar with the Papa Nacho song. She voluntarily started singing the song for us:

Where did you come from
Where did you go
Where did you come from
Papa Nacho

I am not sure she will describe it as her "all time lowest" moment but she is pretty embarrassed. However, some moments do deserve to live with us forever. This is one of them. Enjoy your chuckle!

My Weekend Project: A PVC Camping Lamp Post and Flag Holder

I have seen a few of these around campsites and I knew I would like to have one. The only problem that I had is The Husband.

He already thinks we drag too much stuff with us when we go camping and if I had told him my desire to have a PVC Camping Light Pole he would have shut it down quickly!

So, that leaves a girl with only one choice: Figure out how to do it by herself.

I did some internet searching and found a few road maps on RV forums. They seemed easy enough!

I visited the local hardware store for the supplies:

An exterior post lantern light2 inch PVC pipe (I used 5 feet but had to purchase a 10 foot piece)A 3 inch toilet flangeA 3 inch to 2 inch ReducerPVC GlueA 12 foot electric cord kit2 - 3/4 inch PVC Caps I also used a few supplies we already had on hand:

White Spray Paint

3 1/2 foot - 3/4 inch PVC PipeDrill Bits (1 inch and 1/2 inch)Tent Stakes

The first step was preparing the lantern light. I could only find black in the store and I knew I wanted all white. I covered the gla…

Camping Activity: Wood Chip Necklaces

My worry in taking a wide range of kids camping is that the younger kids would be happy just playing together but the older ones, the one's in that awkward pre-teen/teen age, would think everything was so uncool they would just sit around and mope. So I designed a few activities that would hopefully get them up, participating, and moving.

 I came home from work a few weeks before the Family Camp-out and found my neighbors had trimmed their tree limbs and piled the mess in my yard. I refrained from getting angry. Over a nice dinner, I asked The Husband to help me with a little project.

He looked at me in disgust. I was pulling him away from ESPN to help with an unnecessary camping craft.

 I admit I did some begging. In the end, The Husband borrowed his father's chainsaw and decided to help me cut medallions out of a limb.  His mood started changing, quickly.{I then begged him to let me try my hand at the chainsaw, but he would not let budge on that one. I had to settle for hol…

Hand Made Gifts: Tutu Ornaments

My  Short Chic is turning into a little dancer. To thank the dance teachers for their help, we decided to make them a little gift for Christmas. A tutu ornament.

Supplies needed:

Tulle. I selected black, white and hot pink. The pink and white both have glitter {I have been walking around for the past four days with glitter all over me!}. Glass Ornaments that coordinate with your tulle. Some kind of string {I used stretch magic}. And some super glue.

Step 1: Cut  the tulle. 

I learned, from trial and error, that my cell phone was roughly the right size. So, I used it as a template for cutting the tulle.  
Step 2: Tie the tulle to the string.

Using a simple slip knot, tie the tulle onto the string {or Stretch Magic}. I think I used about 40 loops per ornament.
Step 3:  Adhere it to the Ornament.
I do not have a photo of this step. But simply, you take some super glue and glue the tutu ring to the ornament. 
FINISHED!  Once the glue is dried, you are finished. {Well except the wrapping!} I …
