Bits, Pieces and Blunders!!!

Hello my faithful readers. I am here to tell you about my fabulous weekend. No the rain did not stop me from having fun. Saturday I went to the local scrapbook store and cropped the day away with my friends. There were not as many of us as usual, but we still had a great time. We laughed and laughed and then laughed some more. I did manage to make something really cute, but (shhhhhhhhh), I cannot show you, cause its a surprise for several of my sisterchicks. Once the surprise is out of the bag, than I will upload some photos and share. I just have to say, it is very sweet and I think each of them will really like it. Other than that, I just ate, drank, ate and laughed the day away. When I got home, I was dog tired. I just crawled right into bed and off to dream land I went.

Sunday morning, I was sleeping so good and then my dreams were ripped out of my head with a face in my face saying loudly "Get up and get dressed" "If we are going to see the movie today, we need to go to the first showing." It was my overly excited DH, if you were trying to guess who the face was. We were going to see Pirates of the Carribean. I truly do love this man, but sometimes he gets just a little excited about stuff. He wanted to get there early, so that we did not have to stand in line. With it being the first weekend for the movie, there is always a line. Him waking me up was definately for good reason, but I sure was enjoying my beauty sleep. So up I get, one lid still closed and putting on my clothes and shoes. No time for hair do's or makeup. I just thank the Lord for hair clips and sunglasses. Within 10 minutes of feet hitting the floor, we were off to sail the great Seas with Captain Jack Sparrow. We get there like 45 minutes before the show started and Go Figure, not a person in site. LOL!!! But Hey, thanks to my darling DH, we were the first in line. LOL!!! We met and succeeded our goals for the day!!! Finally when it was time to seat, people did start pouring in. So I guess it was worth loosing a few winks of sleep to be first in line. Movie started, food came and I laughed,cried and drewled through the entire movie. I refuse to ruin the movie for you in case you have not seen it yet, but just let me say one thing about the drewling remark. That would be OOOOOOLALALALALA and LA LA some more. That Orlando Bloom makes a much better Captain of his Ship, than a ordinary shipmate or a Fairy or whatever he was in the Lord of the Rings. I have not been a fan until now. I just love a man in uniform even if it is a Pirates Uniform. I nearly melted in my seat. I really did enjoy him a Um I mean the movie. I was told that this was the last movie, but I am thinking after seeing this movie, that they sure did leave it open for yet another. I know I said in my last post that I would like it to end, but I am having second thoughts now. I think I could get excited once again for another sequel. I guess we will have to wait and see.

Monday, was a very restful day. We stayed home and watched the "House" series. We rented the first and second series. Its a great show, but I always missed it during the week. So we decided to rent the series and watch them all at one time. So we did a "House" marathon. I decided to make a new recipe for dinner to go along with our shows. Have you ever had the Southwestern Eggrolls at Chilli's? Yum!!! They are a little spicy, but they are delicious. So I got a hankering for them and decided to search out a recipe to make them. I had gone shopping on Sunday after the movies and bought all the ingredients. So now it was time to prepare and cook. The recipe has a lot of ingredients and does take some preparation time, but it is well worth every minute. Its a excellent recipe and if you are looking for something new and yummy, I recommend you to make them. As not to waste any ingredients, you can triple the recipe as I did and put them in the freezer and then take out however many you want to cook anytime. Here is the recipe I used. I did not, but you can omit the use of oil and bake these for less fat. I did however use the Carb Balance tortillas, which has 7 grams of fiber per tortilla. They are very soft and yummy. I think after subtracting the fiber, you end up with 5 grams of carbs per tortilla. They cost a little more, but are worth the extra money for the extra fiber.


INGREDIENTS
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 skinless, boneless chicken breast half
2 tablespoons minced green onion
2 tablespoons minced red bell pepper
1/3 cup frozen corn kernels
1/4 cup black beans, rinsed and drained
2 tablespoons frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
2 tablespoons diced jalapeno peppers (mild for less spicy)
1/2 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/3 teaspoon salt
1 pinch ground cayenne pepper
3/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
5 (6 inch) flour tortillas
1 quart oil for deep frying
DIRECTIONS
Rub 1 tablespoon vegetable oil over chicken breast. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, cook chicken approximately 5 minutes per side, until meat is no longer pink and juices run clear. Remove from heat and set aside.
Heat remaining 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in green onion and red pepper. Cook and stir 5 minutes, until tender.
Dice chicken and mix into the pan with onion and red pepper. Mix in corn, black beans, spinach, jalapeno peppers, parsley, cumin, chili powder, salt and cayenne pepper. Cook and stir 5 minutes, until well blended and tender. Remove from heat and stir in Monterey Jack cheese so that it melts.
Wrap tortillas with a clean, lightly moist cloth. Microwave on high approximately 1 minute, or until hot and pliable.
Spoon even amounts of the mixture into each tortilla. Fold ends of tortillas, then roll tightly around mixture. Secure with toothpicks. Arrange in a medium dish, cover with plastic, and place in the freezer. Freeze at least 4 hours.
In a large, deep skillet, heat oil for deep frying to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Deep fry frozen, stuffed tortillas 10 minutes each, or until dark golden brown. Drain on paper towels before serving.


After our delicious dinner, I decided to work on my crochet. I spent the first 30 minutes untangliing the thread. Then I finally got started on a hat pattern I had found at Wal-mart. I defiantly like crocheting better than knitting, but there comes a time when a girl must admit defeat. How did I come to this decision that I might not be cut out for needle work? Lets continue on and you will see.

Today I got up and started right in on my hat and was determined to complete it. I was so proud of myself when I got to my last row. Proud to have started and completed something so quickly. I rarely complete anything I start. I was so proud, until I turned it to the right side and saw my duck tail.

The front does not look to bad!!!

But the back is a different story all together.

Ok, Ok when you are done laughing, could you tell me what the heck happen. I counted all my stitches and rows and I ended up with a duck tail. "SIGH" I thought I might just stick a big ol honker flower on it and maybe it would hide the duck tail. I guess that is what I get for rushing.

I guess you just got to laugh about it and go on to the next project. This is my second hat and neither of them turned out. The first one had more holes in it than Swiss cheese and this one has a duck tale. I cannot wait to see what the next one looks like. Yes, I am going to try it again. I guess I am not ready to admit defeat just yet. After all, I think before one can admit defeat, they must have a full box of complete failures before they can give it up. LOL!!!! That way they have plenty of proof to back up their reason for failing and when I say I gave it my all, I can truly say "I gave it my all and here's my proof!!!"

This week I plan to finish up a few projects for the weekend. I am going to a all day crop in a near town on Saturday and I need to finish up a little book for a friend that will be attending the crop. I would like to also make some little stamp gifts for each of the ladies I will be cropping with.

Well that is it for now. Tune in later this week for more bits, pieces and blunders of my life.

This and That

And a whole lot of nothing much. Yep that's right. Other than taking my MIL on a quick trip to the doctor, this week was chill week. I have done some reading in my book and I am loving that. I tried to work on my crochet, but my threads are tangled in my bag and I figure I did not need the stress of trying to untangle them, so I put it aside. I am in a monthly card swap, and decided to take a few days and get that done and in the mail. Here is the card I did.

It was the most fun I have had making a card in a while. I used my Cricut (aka Oodles) to make the front. Just a click of a few buttons, a few pink stones and a bow and I had this fabulous front for my card. Soooooo easy. The inside of the card is a cute little balloon stamp that I stamped 3 times and then here is the great part. Something I learned this weekend from my stamp retreat. I stamped the balloons on to pattern paper and then cut them out and pasted them into the stamp balloon on my card. Instant color and it matches my front. I then added a little stickles to the dots to give my card some bling and then another bow. Great fun!!! Easy and fun. My two favorite words. Well that and "the foods ready" I love those words too.

Speaking of food. The body cleanse is going well and is almost over. No weight loss, but I feel lots better. Kind of been in a real tranquil relaxed mood the last few days. That was what I wanted from it the most. I needed to de-stress a bit. Its been a stressful 6 months or so with school and some other stuff and I needed to just take some time to de-stress. Today I spent a little time pampering my personal self. You know the shaving of important areas, facial, lotion, plucking. All the things us women do to look and feel beautiful. Not sure I look any more beautiful, but I sure do feel good right now. I am now ready for my scrapbook weekend. I will be spending the day with my girlfriends and cropping the day away. I think I will be working on yet another coaster book. I have made one for a friend, made one for a gift exchange and so I figure its time for me to make one for myself. So doing that and finishing up my other 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 friend book I started a few months ago will be what I bring on Saturday to work on. I am using the same paper for both projects as I used to make the card above. I just soooo love that paper and the colors of Pink, Black and lime Green. Its weird, cause I tend to be a warm colored person, but just adore these bright cheerful colors. It just reminds me of girlfriend stuff I guess. Things that make me think of my friends, makes me happy!!! So I guess that is why I love these colors.

So do you all watch American Idol? I love that show and I just want to say that I really hate this new recording technology that cable tv has now. I recorded it last night so that I could watch my other favorite show "Lost" Well after Lost, (which I was sadly disappointed in) I turn over to watch American Idol. It was a 2 hour special and it was so good. I loved that they brought back some of the other people from past shows. Well anywho, I am watching and it finally gets to the end where they announce the winner and guess what??? The stupid recording shut off. So I did not get to see who won. Can you believe that? Just shut off!!! No rhyme or reason!!! This happens often with that darn thing. I guess cause the show ran over or something. I don't know. Anyway, I had to turn to the Internet to see who won. I had a feeling girlfriend won, but I really wanted Blake to win. Yes I was a Blake fan from the get go. He just won my heart. Now I think the young girl was awesome and can sing great love songs, but I just love how Blake could keep you entertained. That's what I love. Entertainment. Anyway, I am ok with her winning cause I know both of them will go on and become great people. There was so much wonderful talent this time that it was hard to choose. Where there was not the greatest talent, there was great desire, spirit and fun personalities. Now lets talk "Lost" and "Greys Anatomy" ICKPOO on the endings. I just cannot imagine where they will go with either of these shows. Neither had grand finales so to speak. It was like they ended both shows with the idea of maybe not bringing them back. Like it was "THE END" kind of endings. I was very disappointed. Anyway, I am a loyal fan, so I will tune in regardless of how they ended the season. I will look forward to what they have to come even if they did not drag me to the edge of my seat. Speaking of dragging me to the edge of my seat. Now "Desperate Housewives" had a very interesting ending. I just cannot see that sophisticated, motivated, and very confident Edie hanging herself. Good grief. I cannot believe a women like that would let a man like Carlos drive her over the edge. Now he is good looking and all, but he is not the grand piano. So I am kind of interested in seeing what happens with that.

My other plans for the weekend besides scrapbooking. Going to the movies to see "Pirates of the Caribbean" Oh yea!!! I love those Pirates. OOOOLALA!!! Who can resist!!! Not me, I will be there, but not till the end of the weekend. It will be way to crowded on Friday or Saturday. So I plan to go with my family to Sunday Matinee. I cannot wait!!! I am sad to know though, that it will be the last. However, in order for it to stay a favorite, it has to end. Otherwise it will be like Friday the 13th or Rocky. After a while the show MUST END.

Ok, that is it for my This and Thats of today. Time to go to the grocery store for dinner food. Enjoy your weekend people!!!

A Stamping Good weekend




I just had the most wonderful weekend with old and new friends. We had our Angel Stamp gathering this weekend. We stamped our little hearts out. There were so many awesome projects and I learned some really great stamping techniques. Did not realize all the things I could be doing with these many stamps I have collected over the past 2 years. We ate lots of food and chocolate, danced to YMCA and various other songs, we laughed, had deep conversations about life and friendships, made new friendships and stamped, stamped and stamped some more. I was completely worn out from all the fun. What a great way to be tired though.


We also received some really great prizes and gifts. I could not say there was a favorite project or gift. I think all of them were my favorite. The few ladies setting with me at my table could vouch for that. I think everything I picked up, I announced was my favorite. It was very humorous!!!

Yesterday I did as God commanded we do on the Sabbath and I rest!!! That's all I did all day. Rest!!!! I did not realize how stamping could make a person so tired. It was either that or all the carbs I ate. Yes sugar can give you energy, but to much sugar can make you tired. I do believe I had to much sugar. Good sugar, but to much. I will probably spend the rest of the week trying to recover from my over indulging.

I think the rest of this week I plan to clean up my scrapbook room, read some more from a book I started months ago called "SisterChicks on the Loose" and do some stuff with my crochet. I need to take a break from scrapbooking for a few days to regenerate my mind. I have a all day crop on Saturday that I need to be refreshed and ready for. I will check in later this week hopefully. Everyone have a blessed week!!!

Trading Spaces


Well here it is Tuesday already.


Backing up to last week a bit.....
I first want to mention how much fun I had with my friends on our monthly Thursday night get together at our local scrapbook store. Its always fun getting together with them at any time, even if its only for a few hours during the week. It was the highlight of my week that is for sure. I truely am blessed with some wonderful friendships.

Friday my MIL took me shopping. She bought me several new outfits. A skirt/blouse, pants/shirt, shorts/shirt and then I bought myself 2 more shirts/shorts. I got most of it from the Fashion Bug. I really do love that store. Friday night, I just hung out at home. Did a little cleaning to my scrapbook room. Its a never ending job.

Ok, now for the weekend fun. I may have mentioned in past post that my DS got a job working at our local City street Dept. Well its really a great job. The money and the benefits are not too bad for a single guy his age. However, its not going to pay for everything he needs right now. Or should I say everything he wants. He wants to move out into his own apartment, he wants a new vehicle to drive, he wants a new computer, he wants, he wants, he wants. The problem is not that he cannot have what he wants, but that he wants what he wants, RIGHT NOW!!!! He has only been on the job now 3 weeks. He already wants to move out of the house. We set with him last week and talked to him about waiting a few months to make sure he likes his job and they like him and that he wait till after he gets all his mandatory license ect... Just give himself some time to adjust. His reason for moving out is because he feels cramped in his little house. Now when I say little house, I mean little house. My DH built me a craft room a few years ago out in the backyard. Its a 10x12 metal shed which he turned into a really nice craft room. Insulated and the whole works. Very sweet little craft room. Well last year, DS came and ask if he could move out of the house and into this building. He wanted to trade me spaces. His room for my crafts and my room for his big ole self. At first I was not excited about the move, but knew he needed his own space. After a day or so thinking, I decided it might also be nice to have my stuff in the house. So I said "Lets do it" Now when I say 10x12, I mean 10 ft wide by 12ft long. Now ceiling to floor is a whole different measurement. It is probably only about 5' 6" tall give or take. My son is 6' 1". So you can see why he would be slightly cramped. He cannot stand up straight. He has to come in and immediately sit. Now when he came and ask to move into my building, we talked about how short the ceiling was and he said no problem that he did not need to stand. I kind of thought that was going to get old, but DS is the type of person who has to figure things out through his own experience. So we made the move and all was very happy. I was especially happy, cause I got a whole new craft room twice the size. We totally put in new flooring, painted and decorated. It worked out perfect for me, cause its in the front of the house and we also use it for our office space, homeschooling and my scrapbooking. DS was very happy cause he had his own house. As small as it might have been, it was his house. LOL!!!! He could have friends over, turn up his music, come and go as he pleased. Whatever. He loved it!!! Well up until recently. He now suddenly started feeling the need to have more space with taller ceilings. He also started making friends with taller kids. LOL!!! So he came to me and said, "Mom I want to get my own apartment. I found one for 700.00 a month." You know what I said "YIKES!!!! DS you cannot afford a apartment for 700.00 a month, plus all of your other bills, and a car and have money left for all of your wants. Remember all of your wants that we talked about." So the fight was on. He was not happy with my response and I was not happy with his response to my response. After much argument, he finally realized that I was right and that moving out right now was not the best idea. But did express how miserable he was in that small cramped space. I totally understood. I offered him to move back into the house in the guest bedroom. But you know that once you get a taste of freedom, its hard to think about moving back in with your parents. Even if it is just in the backyard. So DH and I sit and talked about his situation and what we could do to help him. DH has a building in the backyard as well. Its a very nice, very big building that he built a few years ago. He initially built it as a work shop. A place he could put all of his tools ect... But then he started playing poker and so he turned it into more of a game room where him and his friends gather every Friday night for poker. I am talking a very nice game room. Totally insulated, refrig, microwave, cable tv, air conditioning, heat, ceiling fan, walk-in closet, everything. Its about a 14x20 wood building and has very tall ceilings. It even has a attic in it. So that will give you a idea of how nice it is. He really spent lots of time fixing it up. So now you know what I am about to say next. Yes, he offered DS his game room. What a man!!! What a dad!!! to give up his space for the happiness of his son. At first DS said no. He did not want to take his dads place. He knows how much his dad loves his building. But after spending some time with him talking about it all, he did finally agree. He actually got really excited. So Saturday morning early DH and DS got up and started trading spaces. What a job. I just sit by and watched for the most part. It really was a entertaining event. After a while I left and did some grocery shopping ect.... came back and it was done by early evening. All of DH's stuff was in my craft building, and all of DS stuff was now in the poker building. What a difference. It was awesome for DS. My MIL gave him her old/ but nice couch. I gave him my old/but nice dining room table. His bed fit in the cubby of the building, so he had big open space for table. Couch along the wall. Refrig, microwave on top of frig, chest in the closet. Now he has a cute little efficiency apartment with tons of space. It was a great sacrifice, a huge job, but my son is happy and it will be worth it all if he will stay home a little longer. Even if its for only 6 months longer. He just needs some time to adjust to his job and really I would like to see him get a new vehicle to drive, before he moves away from home. His jeep he drives now,is our old, old vehicle and it has seen its day. We figure it want last much longer. So now he is hopfully in a happier place now and all is well for a while longer.

Sunday, for Mothers Day we had planned to go and visit a new Church with my MIL. She wants to try a church down the street, but did not want to go her first time alone. So we thought we would go with her for Mothers Day. We figured what better day than Mothers Day to visit a new church. However, on Saturday, DH fell twice on his knee. It was very humorous actually. I was sitting on the swing cleaning my dogs ears and he comes out holding his leg. I am like "What happen" He was like "I just fell off the ladder" I am like "How" and he said "I was climbing up to the attic on the attic ladder and the steps just collapsed out from under me. He said I just fell straight down. I suddenly felt 3 inches shorter when my feet hit the ground" I said "Oh my goodness, are you ok?" as I held back laughing. LOL!!!! The thought of that just totally tickled me for the next hour. He appeared to be ok. Then later that day, he was standing up on the bed taking down a shelf and somehow his feet got twisted up in the mattress and off the bed he flew. LOL!!! Right there in front of me. He was so graceful in his landing. He just kind of tucked and rolled, off the bed, but then landed on his poor knee. Again I was like "Are you ok?" He kind of rolled back and forth on the floor, but then again was up and appeared ok. As the day progressed, he begin to get a limp. Said his knee was hurting. That night he put ice on it and by morning, he was hardly able to walk. So he may have appeared ok, but really he was not so ok. It was hurting him most of Sunday. Even still, DD and him made me breakfast in bed, which was wonderful, and then lunch/dinner he cooked fried chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans and salad for his mother and myself. What a treat. I did not have to cook or clean the kitchen the entire day. He and the kiddos bought me another cartridge for my Cricut and he got me and my MIL a fragrance Oil burner (see above photo) with vanilla, pomegranate and orange fragrances. He had already gotten me 2 cartridges last weekend, but felt like he needed something to give me actually on Mothers Day. What a sweetie. I loved both items and I really love him!!! He is such a good man. We stayed home the entire day. I took a nap, we watched movies. Just had a nice relaxing day at home with my family.

Monday, he stayed home from work. His leg was still sore and we started our Fiber 35 diet once again and by the book this time. The first thing it recommends is to do a body cleanse. I want even go there, but know, that you do not need to be too far from home when you first start these. Luckily it is only that way for the first 2 or 3 days until your system adjust to it.
He is also home today too, mostly because of the cleanse, but because of his back and leg being so sore. I feel terrible for laughing now, that I know he really did hurt himself. Ok so I have a sick sense of humor. LOL!!! Anyway, I guess that is it. We walked Sunday night and last night for 30 minutes around our neighborhood. A very nice walk. Not extremely fast, but fast enough to get a sweat going. On a cleanse you are not suppose to stress the body. Its already under some stress as it is cleansing out the toxins from your system. So you are suppose to relax and stay pretty calm during the time you are on the cleanse. So we did not walk extremely fast, but I felt like we did some good. Now I am off to get me something to eat for breakfast. My tummy is saying "FEED ME" I also have to get busy working on my stamp projects for this coming weekend. Have a awesome day/week!!!!

National Scrapbook Weekend

I know, I know, I am such a lame blogger. I have said that before and I will say it again. I just want you to know, I realize this is a huge problem and I plan to do better. I have just been so busy this past week. Mostly taking my MIL to the doctor and shopping here and there for this and that. I cannot remember all the stuff I did last week, its a blurr now because of sleep deprivation, but I do know, I was only home 1 day all week. Now to explain why I have sleep deprivation and memory loss. LOL!!! This weekend, was National Scrapbook Weekend. To the none scrapbook people, that is a weekend set aside to celebrate the wonderful hobby of Scrapbooking. What a awesome weekend. I had the best, best time scrapbooking with some of my homeschool friends. Our time started on Friday evening at one of the ladies house and we went the entire weekend with very little sleep. Her poor family packed up and went to stay with friends and gave us the entire house. I do believe it was a gift to my friend. Now is that not the greatest family ever. All of our husbands truly were great dads this weekend and did all the running around and errands ect... with the kiddos, just so all of us moms could have some much needed girlfriend time. We scrapbooked, talked, ate, went shopping, scrapbooked some more and ate some more. Did it all!!! We also all got a new toy. I brought my new Cricut that I got for early Mothers Day and we played with it on Friday night. By Saturday, everyone had decided that they needed a Cricut for Mothers Day as well. So off we went to Walmart to purchase them, cause they are so much cheaper there. We wanted to get them now, before they sold out for Mothers Day. Walmart does not plan to carry them anymore once they sell them out. So we had to get them while the getting was good. I just totally love it!!! I never thought I would and tried so very hard to avoid purchasing one. Once I made the mistake of playing with one of my friends machine at a crop, I knew I had to have it. Totally awesome machine. I am so glad I spent the money. Anyhow back to my weekend, what did I get done on my Scrapbook weekend? It will not seem like a whole lot when I tell you, but really it was a lot. I am in a 6x6 page swap with 30 other ladies in my Angel Company group, and its due the end of this month. So that is what I worked on. I did not finish them, but I did get a lot done.

The paper and stamps I used are The Angel Company products. The tags and the heart are cut from my Cricut. I used Stickles and yarn for my tags. I think it turned out pretty cute. Now I have to complete 29 more of them. All I need to do is cut and add my already colored ragdolls and the stamped hearts and ribbon to the tags. Everything else is done. So it should not take me, but one more crop to finish. Hopefully this weekend I will have some time.

Yesterday, I slept almost the entire day to catch up on my lost sleep. After I got up, my DH and DS and I went out for dinner and a movie, while my DD stayed with her Nana. We went for our favorite Mexican food and then over to see Spider Man 3. It was a little Corney I thought. I do not recall laughing in the other Spidy movies, but I laughed in this one. I am such a movie person that I can almost enjoy any movie. There have only been a few that I would give 2 thumbs down too. I just love, love to go to the movies and will just about see anything. So I cannot really give fair review. I enjoyed it, Corney or not. It was good in my opinion.


Today, I started my day with a 45 minute walk and then home to shower and dress to take my MIL to the doctor. Afterwards, we went to Michaels, then to the hairdresser to get my MIL hair cut. Then to the grocery store, cause she got a craving for donuts. Then home to take a much needed nap and then up again to go with DH to JcPennys where I purchased a much needed new bed pillow, some cute pink flipflps, some sunglasses "so I can see at night" Oh sorry, that song always comes to mind when I say sunglasses for some reason. The pillow I purchased was a water pillow

http://www.isokineticsinc.com/category/pc_pillows/product/sg_15100?utm_source=Adwords&utm_campaign=water+pillow&utm_sponsored=water+pillow+ad&utm_medium=PPC


I will let you know how well it works out for me. It sounds so comfy. I have a waterbed, so I figure I need a waterpillow. I cannot wait to try it out tonight. I like the idea that I can make it soft, medium or hard depending on how much water I add. So I have 3 chances of liking it. If it works out for me, I plan to go back and buy my MIL and my Mother one for Mothers Day.

After my trip and much money spent at Penny's, I then went to Salley's Beauty Supply for some hair color, nails and polish. I need to "wash that gray right out of my hair" and because I bite my nails when I watch a intense movie, I now need to do my nails. I hate when I do that. I did so well in the first part of the movie but then when it got to the exciting action scenes, off the nails came. Sooooo until they grow out again, I will have to "fake it till I make it" Plus I needed some cool polish colors for my toes. Its sandel/flipflop time for me. YIPPY!!!! I love this time of year. I am a flipflopaholic. I must have lots of colors. Ok, so that is it!!! Hopefully this week, I will have something exciting that cannot wait to be blogged. Over and Out!!!
