A great idea but a little late...

I read about this great product on Apparently you can easily attach an extra button onto your jeans to give yourself a little more tummy room.  (Or the opposite, but that SOO does not apply here.) Check it out at

Music Lesson Incentives

I have been thinking a lot lately about how to keep my kids and the kids I teach music to motivated in their weekly practicing.

For me growing up, I had one teacher who required that we fill out a practice log she provided.  She praised us for practicing daily and gave us the "eye" when we didn't.  If we had a certain number of "full" practice logs we would be given a sort of gift card for a little music magazine she had.  It was full of musical themed trinkets, etc...  I like this but haven't found a good resource yet.

I am curious if you have any ideas or experiences you could share... I would greatly appreciate it!

One of my secret hobbies:

Its dress gawking. I love it! I am constantly observing fancy dresses, and don't most girls for that matter? I am not sure I would ever aspire to being a designer but I fancy myself more of a connoisseur. So this dress made me pause for the relative modesty of it. Yes I think the neckline could be brought up a notch or two but check this out! Its almost something I would wear! (Minus large baby bump, of course.) So far the reviews on it sound positive. Its rare to see a celebrity wear one like this.... do you like it?
