Wordless Wednesday

Today's word = "Lazy"

Shopping for Maddie's Stroller

Mutsy We found this absolutely amazing baby/stroller site! You should take a look at this new Mutsy Slider stroller.
It is a whole new concept of strollers that is lightweight, compact and sporty looking. It comes in red, silver, and green. The part I like is the way that it folds up completely small. Now for the best part, it has accessories - a travel cot, a Graco and a Maxi Cosi car seat, a seat (sold separately) that can attach to the frame. The swivel wheels can be reversed with the push of a bar, making the back wheels the front wheels. I've never seen anything like this and I Love it!
Our second choice is the Mutsy 4Rider Next Cargo Range stroller. It comes in silver, orange, and antracite. The seat on this one is reclining so that baby can watch mom or watch the world. You can get accories for this one as well, including a dinner tray and a fun seat. I aso like the leather handle on this one.
So are shopping for a stroller? You should check these out. You can find a local retailer that has these and if you can, go test drive one. You will be so amazed. is offering a 10% discount if you use the codeword Mutsy10off.

My Manga Name / Bleach the Movie

I'm not in to Manga like my brother is, but I do however think it's cool. A manga name has to be strong and creative. My manga name is Musumi Shi, which means daughter of death. The reason I chose that name is very personal to me.

On June 11th and 12th at 7:30 P.M., Fathom Events is sponsoring a special 2 Day Only showing of Bleach the Movie in select theaters. For the list of theaters near you, check here. This is the movies North American debut. So if you are a Bleach fan, you won't want to miss this. You can purchase tickets either through the website or at the theater in your area. From what my brother says, this is a really awesome movie, and you should purchase your tickets in advance as it may sell out quickly.
