I FOUND IT!!!! The hunt is over for me this season. I have found a McDonald's that actually sells the infamously hard-to-find eggnog milkshake that I wrote about last year. Coincidentally, the McDonald's I found the shake at is in Lafayette, the same town that the treehouse house might be built in.
Please feel free to post a comment if/where you've found the eggnog milkshake too!
This is so much fun to do! Upload a photo of yourself and see how your yearbook photo would probably look like in 1950 or 1978 or 2000. The results may shock you! They will probably make you cringe too. I sure did!!!
Condé Nast has opened up its archives to the public and are allowing us all to purchase their photos, magazine covers, and illustrations as wall art. and I think it is so great that Condé Nast has this service. There are so many incredible photos to choose from!!

Another Barbie post I know! But I had to post this t-shirt. If memory serves me right, the graphic on it is the same graphic used as the logo??? for the Barbie Fan Club back in the 80s. Wherever it came from, I love it! It's so totally awesome!! ;)
I have always loved the Solo In The Spotlight Barbie and have always been very envious of that stunning black dress she wears. Well, now I can wear it too! As a halloween costume that is. But hey that works for me!

I'm not too crazy about Butch Vig producing the new Green Day record, but at least my favorite band is finally back in the studio! It's been much too much too long since a new Green Day record (I love 'em but Foxboro Hot Tubs doesn't count IMO). But Butch Vig? I like Garbage & all, but I dunno.... I hope their long time producer, Rob Cavallo, still has a role SOMEwhere on this new record....
Green Day in studio with Nirvana producer By Jonathan Cohen Tue Oct 14, 8:17 PM ET
NEW YORK (Billboard) - Confirming news that Garbage frontwoman Shirley Manson let slip recently on "The Carson Daly Show," Green Day is in the studio with veteran producer Butch Vig working on the follow-up to 2004's "American Idiot."
In a video posted over the weekend on YouTube, the band is seen in the control room as the camera pans over to Vig, who smiles and extends his middle finger. Instrumental bits of two new songs are heard in the background.
Vig is best known for his work on Nirvana's "Nevermind" but has also logged time behind the boards with Smashing Pumpkins and Sonic Youth, in addition to his musician role in Garbage. Of late, he has produced albums from Jimmy Eat World, Against Me! and Tad.
Green Day worked with producer Rob Cavallo on "American Idiot," a Grammy-winning smash that has sold 5.8 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
The group reappeared this spring masquerading as the band Foxboro Hot Tubs, releasing an album and playing a handful of small club shows. The upcoming Green Day album, as-yet-untitled, is expected next year via Warner Bros.
It doesn't get much cuter than this!!! And they're only $8.99 @ ThinkGeek.com!
From ThinkGeek.com: Each Japanese Popping Edamame Keychain has three beans. The end beans are small and immature. The middle bean, however, has one of 12 random faces printed on it. Why? We don't know, but there is nothing like the smile it puts on your face. And the beans are connected to some sort of elastic band, so they pop back in to be popped again as many times as you want. It sounds silly, but trust us, these things are highly addictive. They are also a great way to keep your fingers busy during boring meetings and your mood positive - because no one can frown when their edamame smiles.
