froggie bootsThis week I found must-have rain boots and sandals — for the April showers and May flowers.

I really liked these boots at left, but then I discovered they were for kids. So I searched for them for women, and I found them. They are on sale at Bootshop for $49.95 on Amazon. There’s also a ladybug version — see below. They are a little childish looking, but I would wear them to shovel snow and garden, and they make me laugh just looking at them.

The kids’ versions are at Kohls for $32.99 — if I can get my feet into them I am buying them. And I have a granddaughter who must have these, but she might prefer the Minnie Mouse rain boots ($24.99) at Toys R Us.

ladybugminnieI am now being stalked by frogs, ladybugs and mice on every website I visit. In spite of that, I discovered some blingy sandals for $16.99 at Zulily – the sale ends in two days, and my size is gone. Never fear — Zulily has a lot more sandals in stock. Anyway, they all appear to have plenty of lily padding — haha! Happy Fashion Friday!

If you are stuck for a gift idea for anyone with ties to Erie, here are some of my faves:

Pizza Bomber: The Untold Story of America’s Most Shocking Bank Robbery” Ed Palattella and Jerry Clark co-authored the book about their investigations into the collar-bomb death of Brian Wells. You can watch a replay of their live chat on GoErie.com at www.goerie.com/chat. I know both these guys — they are awesome.

They will have a book signing today at The Erie Book Store at 4:30 p.m and at Books-A-Million in the Millcree Mall Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m. The book is available at Barnes & Noble, Werner Books, Books Galore, The Erie Book Store and on Amazon and other outlets. For more information: pizzabomber.com. The book has been optioned for a movie in Hollywood.

“Bluff” by Lenore Skomal. Lenore’s book is a terrific mystery that will keep you guessing, and she is planning a sequel. I know Lenore, and she weaves a great story with memorable characters.

Honoring the New York Central Railroad”  by Kenneth Springirth. Ken knows railroad, and he has a series of books that are all fascinating railroad tales. I know Ken — he is an interesting historian — if you have a question on rail, just ask him.

Fortune and Fury” by David Frew and Jerry Skrypzak. These gentlemen share some of Erie’s richest history of the waterfront. It’s a great read for anyone who loves Erie. I know both of these guys, and this book is filled with personality and memories of old Erie. All proceeds benefit The Erie Historical Society.

These are just a few of the great books written by local authors. Suggest more right here.

Yes that is my son and my hubby wearing headphones and grooving to different tunes in the yard.

My son has been very generous in returning home from Gannon to mow and rake and mow and rake … He even enjoy’s my husband’s music — a mix of country, rock and roll, Beach Boys, 98 Degrees and 70s tunes. So Ryan borrows his stepdad’s iPod every time he’s on landscaping duty.

My hubby supervises while wearing his headphones and listening to Pandora on his iPhone. Well the funny thing about this picture is that to communicate, they have to hand signal, remove headphones and then talk.

These big honking headphones are another story. My oldest son got a set for himself years ago when he won some kind of gift card to Amazon. He bought these professional grade $150+ headphones. Everyone in the family tested them out, and fell in love with them. At the time, everyone in the family used them — including me, and we listened to my hubby’s music.

So if you need a gift that brings a stepfamily together to listen to one another’s music and leaves you laughing, get some headphones — and your camera.
