We’re celebrating Twilight Zone Day on May 11 by dressing in fashion from another dimension, or mincing a marathon into an awesome tribute video, or clearing space to enjoy nature’s own Twilight Zone.

That’s a signpost up ahead: your next stop: the Sassy Quest Zone! Choose any of these Sassy Quests based on one of televisions most amazing series – The Twilight Zone!

You’ll be sure to make everyone’s head spin as you cross over from the fifth dimension…The Twilight Zone.

Twilight Time: The Twilight Zone also exists in a special place just between sunset and nightfall. For this Sassy Quest, plan on going to your special place, even if it’s just your backyard to enjoy this little sliver of nature’s heaven.

When’s the last time you remember cleaning being fun? Really? Never. Good answer. We think alike. Based on our mutual adoration we’ve designed these Sassy Quests to make Clean Your Room Day both memorable AND fun!
Dirty Girl: Cleaning is a chore and therefore on my list of things to do in any given day it ranks a bit after skewering my eyes with bamboo shoots. Embrace your inner dirty girl and celebrate Clean Your Room Day by protesting the day entirely. That’s right. Do not lift a sponge, a trash bag, or a dust cloth the entire day. While basking in your rebellion try not to be distracted the dust bunnies hiding in the corner.
Virtually Clean: I am sure there are more productive ways to spend hours and oodles of time but for some odd reason, Pinterest just keeps sucking away my ability to think of any. To celebrate Clean Your Room Day stop by Pinterest when you have a spare hour (or ten) and organize your boards or create a whole new one with ideas on how to clean and organize your spaces. Happy Pinning.

Moscato makes everything better. Pair it with a tasty dinner, sip it with a straw or drown your skin and sorrows in this delicious and light wine for National Moscato Day – May 9.
For those of you that love Jack Handey, you’ll adore this quote about wine.
Sometimes when I reflect back on all the wine I drink, I feel shame! Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the vineyards and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn’t drink this wine, they might be out of work, and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, “It is better that I drink this wine and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver!”
Release the shame and embrace National Moscato Day by choosing any of these sassy quests which will make any vineyard workers proud – very, very proud.
Praise Pairings: If your house is anything like mine, the “what’s for dinner?” question and subsequent negotiations go something like the Middle East peace talks. I’m not sure anyone is happy with the result but at least dinner happened. Thanks to the lovely folks at Sutter Home you can click here now and have many wonderful dinner ideas for tonight that are sure to delight every member of the family. I think tonight calls for pepperoni & sausage pizza with vanilla cupcakes for dessert.
Sip Yourself Silly: Wine glasses are meant to be big. They are big because problems can be big and there is a direct correlation between the size of your glass and the size of your problem. I know. I get it. I’ve done it. However, this Sassy Quest is about slowly sipping in the sweetness and enjoying all the fruity notes of your Moscato as they playfully trickle down your throat and gently wash away the cares of the day. If you’re not feeling playful, or if you need to power wash the day away or if it is taking too long to hear the melodic tunes from your Moscato, you have our permission to ditch the sipping and proceed directly to gulping.
Drown Your Sorrows: Slip into something more comfortable dahhhhling and bring your glass of Moscato with you. Take a dip into a hot bath tonight and celebrate Moscato Day in solitude. Dim the lights. Light some candles. Close your eyes and let the wine do the rest.
Tell Us – What Is Your Favorite Brand of Moscato??

Be A Dirty Girl Scout: When I saw this recipe I instantly fell in love and knew it would be perfect to celebrate today. In the interest of full disclosure you should know I was kicked out of Girl Scouts at a very early age. Apparently I was a little too sassy for my own good. Or was I? Thanks to one of my favorite members of royalty, The Beeroness, she has provided you with the perfect recipe to earn a Sassy Patch in the category of Sassy Spirits (and Beers). Enjoy a Dirty Girl Scout tonight! Try not to giggle too loud. I see this winding up in my canteen on the next camping trip or bonfire night.

Get Charged Up: You should know that I am not a fan of energy drinks. In fact, one cup of coffee is probably a bit too much caffeine to me. Seriously.

However, in honor of National Battery Day I am going to consume a can of energy drink just to see what it means to be supercharged. I invite you to join me on this jitter-filled journey. Kidneys be damned. Can you believe they even make an energy drink that looks exactly like a Duracell battery. Yep. It’s real.
