Welcome to Friday again

Seems like the only time I can blog is on Friday night. Another week flew by!! Don't feel bad, I read a weeks worth of papers while waiting for the boy at Karate tonight.

Guess what was waiting for me when I got home tonight? Never mind, I really HATE that game.

I'll tell...It was my Pioneer Woman Cookbook. OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If you do not know who Pioneer Woman is, what rock have you been under for the past few years.? Check out the link on my side bar and get caught up. Soon the entire world will know about her and her fabulous Cookbook. This is no ordinary cook book, it is one that may actually make me start cooking. The food looks fantastic and the photography is stunning.

I had to force myself not to lick the pages!

I also got my copy of the Cookbook by the lady that used her crock pot everyday for 365 days. She is the reason I have two crock pots now. Her cookbook is not nearly as beautiful but the recipes sound delish!!

The best part about the cookbooks? They were FREE....including shipping. SWEET!

How you ask? I used my Swagbucks to buy gift cards. When I got $30 worth I cashed them in on the books. When you ordered $29 worth, shipping was free.


Don't know about Swag Bucks? You really have been under a rock. YOU can find out the details on my side bar. Sign up, use me as a reference and we both win. Use the Swagbucks search engines and win. Save your bucks and buy great stuff for FREE.

I'm going to go lick my cookbook again and then get some sleep.

Have a safe Halloween. Don't forget to turn back your clocks on Saturday/Sunday.

Til later.................

The boy got his first report card as a High School er. His first report card of his permanent record that will help him get into a good college or one that is for Juniors...not that there is anything wrong with those colleges.....

If you have been reading my blog for awhile you remember the drama we've gone through with him and school. He's spent more time on restriction than off over the years.

Having said that....he made....all A's & B's!!!!!!


I told him I was going to frame it.

He thinks I'm kidding.

I'm not kidding.

Lots of news around the blogging world. I'm trying to get caught up. If I've missed something I need to know, email me.

Set your tape/dvr for The Bonnie Hunt show for Monday...PW will be on there.

I'm hoping to have some news of my own soon.......

Til later..

Miss me?

Who would have thought that working for a living would be such a crimp in my blogging world? I really miss being able to update during the day. 15 minute breaks, 30minutes lunch...ARG!

Enjoying the cooler weather? Nice. Wish I could spend more time outside to enjoy it. I have a VENDOR event next Saturday nut by then it is suppose to rain. Darn!

My DH had a birthday since last time I checked in with you. Very low key..we went to the movies and dinner. The new Bruce Willis movie was pretty good. Depressing but good. I love Bruce movies so anything would be great. After the movie we went out to dinner at Ruby Tuesday Endless fries....should I say more?

Took the boy out to the movies yesterday. We started to see "Zombieland" but I chickened out. I really do not like gore or scary movies so we say a kiddy movie called " Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs". Shared a large popcorn and had fun.

Super exciting right? What do you have to offer?

Til later...............

Not paid by the word

Good thing I am not making my living as a Blogger. On the other hand, If I was, I'd have time to Blog.

Work is going well but it makes me exhausted by the time I get home. Monday and Tuesday after work are the only time I have to run errands so I usually don't get home til 7-8pm. WED-Friday I have to run home to get the boy to Karate and by the time it is over, it's 8-9 pm. Between that schedule and leaving the house at 7-7:15AM I don't have time to post. I can barely get on Facebook either so if you are a "follower"---you must be bored by now.

This weekend was the last free one for over a month. I have Southern Living at Home vendor events fr the next 5 Saturdays. (I have Sundays and some week nights available if you are interested in having a get together with your friends). Since we are approaching the holidays, I image my weekends are going to be quite packed for awhile. At least I got my Scrapper room done so I can scrap/craft if I ever have any free time.

My DH "ordered" me to take this weekend to rest and get ready for my up coming schedule. He brought me coffee and breakfast in bed on Saturday and I enjoyed catching up on some of my recorded shows. (Another problem..super busy and now ALL the new shows are on. Our DVRs are packed!!! LOL. Really sad isn't it?) About mid afternoon I started feeling guilty and headed outside to power wash the front walk.

Yes, POWER WASH the front walk ....which then turned into power washing the driveway...or at least half of it. Our front walkway was practically black with places of green. Really depressed me every time I got home. Now it is all nice and clean-grey again. I even got the front door wreaths changed from Spring to Fall. Finally!! I picked up some flowering vines from Lowes to put on the trellis's (spelling??) that have been sitting on the side of the walkway for months. I didn't want to plant them until after the sidewalk was clean so I did it. The plants didn't get planted but the walkway & front door look nice. It's a start.

Today I was spoiled again by my darling DH. I finally came out into the living /dining room area about mid afternoon to watch the Bucs with my DH. I finished straightening up the desk area and got the rest of the stuff out of the kitchen for the first time in 3 months. I checked another thing off my list so I don't feel too guilty for being a slug. My DH doesn't mind if I take time to rest so why do I feel bad?

I hadn't read any ones Blog for awhile and was amazed to see what had been happening around the cyber world. HI Everyone.

The fabulous Gail Pittman sale is over but they have announced another sale on our Gallery & Tuscan line. Go to my website and check it out.... and let me know if you want anything. As always, things sell out so don't delay.
