This week - Money Saving Mom One of the best blogs I've found with great tips on saving money. Her posts are inspiring and help keep that budgeting mojo going. Lots of head's up alerts to special deals, coupon promotions, freebies, special manufacturer's offers, etc. Her Mr. Linky type post comments add to the community with additional information keep you on top of even more late-breaking savings.

Update: Mark at Chamblees Roses in Tyler, Texas thinks it is "Scentimental," a floribunda. That does sound familiar.

If you know her, please call the Houston Police Department at 713/308-3600. She is between 25-30 years old, 5'9", 160 pounds. Because she didn't match the Texas Department of Public Safety's computer face recognition program, they are thinking she may be from out-of-state. Click here for the article and more information in today's Houston Chronicle. I posted this on my blog because the newspaper article mentioned she was artistic -- and since I have a lot of readers who are crafters, sew-ers, and quilters, I thought even with the slightest chance and odds, someone might help her find her way back home.

As you can obviously tell, I have a rather eclectic group of friends and fellow bloggers in the right alley. I thought each week on Sunday I would randomly showcase one from the list and why they are there. I love to discover new blogs, and I think you will enjoy the introduction for new places to visit in Bloggy Land.
This week - True Up I found Kim's blog when I was searching for a photo for tomorrow's Money Monday post. Oh boy, if you love fabric, this is the blog you'll want to check out, showcasing fabrics for collecting, sewing, apparel, crafting, home dec. . . I also like the Daily Swatch featured fabric postings.

Who else kept listening for the new catch phrases? -- "We're not buying it" and "You are hanging by a thread" -- L and I kept trying to remember the others. In any case, it is a good show to help take up the time until Project Runway returns later this summer. I don't think there could ever be too many sewing-related programs!
The more we watch this show, the more we are getting hooked. L & I really like the Harpers Bazaar Mini Challenges.
Update: The more we watched this show, the more we didn't like it. Towards the end, we didn't even care. They removed many of the more interesting and talented designers. Kelly went from nice to bitchy, too. If there was something else on at the same time, we watched that instead. We can't wait for Project Runway!

Someone plowed into me yesterday from behind while I was at a stoplight. My first thought was, "my new license plates!" But they survived. Unfortunately, the back bumper, muffler, alignment and rear wheel took the hit instead. Along with the back of my head from the headrest. Ow! Toyotas make very good bumpers, they just tend to pop away and for safety issues cannot be repaired, only replaced. The other car was much worse - the impact crumpled the hood, broke the headlights and punctured the radiator. Point Toyota! As you can imagine, L is in no hurry to get her driver's license! But she will remember that very good rule -- leave enough space between you and the car ahead so you can see their license plate/bumper -- which saved my car from hitting the one in front of me - and another bumper!
5-15-09 update -- My car is back, yay! Hard to believe it was almost $3,100 in damage!
Next up - my rental car review. Suffice to say I "Escape"d instead and did not take the Chevy Aveo that was proferred to me!
