easter 2When the kids were little and we were on the road, word finds, word puzzles and number games ruled. One fun game was making words out of Easter — this worked well usually for one kid but not all.

Wiki answers suggests: east, tease, teaser, rest, tear,tears, ear, ears, sat, rat, rats, tar, tars, seat, taser, tea, sear, set, star,  erase, east ease, ear, ears, eat, eats, era, eras, art, arts, ate, are, as, steer, seer, star, stare, seat, sear, sea, see, set, sat,  rate, rest, rates, tree and trees.

If you try it with Happy Easter, yahoo.com says you can add all of these: happy, prat, prats, pray, prays, rap, raps, pep, peps, perp, yap, the,there, yet, pet, pets, Pete, Peter, tap, taps, ape, apes, sappy, trap, traps, strap, straps, tarp, part, party, yeast.

No matter what words you make today, have a Happy Easter. At our house, we have Happy Eaters on a day like this. Mmmm, or nom nom as my kids say.

bethenny-frankel-forbesI’m late to the party on this one, but what a party it is. Bethenny Frankel, one of the housewives from The Real Housewives of New York City and founder of SkinnyGirl, hit the cover of Forbes Magazine in 2011. She’s a millionaire and has a million Twitter followers. And a great idea is what boosted her to the cover of Forbes. I learned more about her on CBS News on Sunday.

Frankel came up with low-calorie liquor for ladies years ago. She took her idea for SkinnyGirl Cocktails to major liquor companies, and they turned her down flat. In 2010, Frankel and a business partner launched her 100-calorie cocktails — some with only 5 carbs. The successful SkinnyGirl Cocktails brand hit it big with female buyers and Beam Inc. purchased it for more than $100 million in 2011.

Frankel is now a mom and making news divorcing her husband Jason Hoppy. In the meantime, her millions continue to grow. Frankel had fame all over her resume long before she hit Forbes. According to Wikipedia, her credits include:  The Apprentice: Martha StewartThe Real Housewives of New York City, books, exercise DVDs, nutrition bars, food items, and more TV with Bravo’s reality show Bethenny Getting MarriedBethenny Ever After and Skating with the Stars.

SkinnyGirl – a world-famous brand — now includes cleanses, a nutrition line and much more than cocktails.
