I am so happy I was asked by my friends over at Metromix Twin Cities to be a judge for “CAMP GAGA,” a Lady Gaga inspired Costume design contest held Monday, May 23rd at CAMP BAR in St. Paul.
It was a wonderful event celebrating the release of Lady Gaga’s new album, “Born This Way” and the night’s proceeds benefited the Aliveness Project. I was really impressed with the creativity shown by all of the contestants. They really know how to wow a crowd.

The Grand Prize winner, Jakub, served up this delightful Gaga dish and this honey stomped that runway. He definitely earned the $1000 grand prize with this piece of awesomeness.

Remember, darling, if you weren’t “Born This Way’ a little glitter and a hot glue gun can do wonders.

Host – Dramatica, Miss Shannan and our lovely Lady bookends

Today My Toddler Taught Me…. Treasures aren’t always right on the surface, but a little digging can unearth amazing things.

Comedy, Hail, Miss Shannan, mom, weather


This has been the weirdest week of Minnesota weather. First we had temperatures near 80 degrees. Then temps plunge, rain falls, and we crank our heaters back on as shiver damply and things dropped down close to 40.

I’m so over this crappy weather. If I were a meterolgy student, this would be awesome. But I’m just a mom who would like to take her toddler outside to play without wondering if that sassy heffer, Mother Nature was about to hurl a golfball size Ice Rock at me and my kiddo.

That’s what happened earlier this week as evidenced in the photo above. My husband retrieved one of the “Frozen Balls of Cussitude” after it nearly hit the Toddler Tornado and I while we were at the playground. Not funny Mother Nature. Not funny at all.

We’ve been huddled inside for so long that we rush to grab a breathe of fresh air every chance we get. Now can can’t even trust what looks like a break in the weather crap-i-tude to last more than 10 minutes. Guess we’ll have to keep taking our chances.

No one was hurt, but if Mother Nature was more than a personification of natural forces, I would snatch her personified weave right off her personifed head.
