Nothing Like a Tagging

Rules: Each player answers the question themselves. At the end of the post the player then tags 5 people and posts their names, then goes to their blog and leaves them a comment letting them know that they've been tagged and asking them to read your blog. Let the person that tagged you know when you've answered the questions on your blog.

10 years ago: I was 14 and had just entered my freshman year of highschool, oh the awkward years...

First car: A white 1992 Ford Explorer, I was in love with it. I drove it pretty much through highschool

First Job: I was a cashier at Cotton Patch and totally addicted to their bread pudding. yum!

First kiss: Let's just say we were watching Titantic.

5 things on today's "to do" list: price garage sale items, dinner with Laura, bathe Sara and Boss, clean my wedding ring, and return some j.crew stuff.

5 snacks I enjoy: granola w/yogurt, fruit, any raw veggie, cookies, and pecans

5 things I would do if I were a millionaire: buy a beach house, payoff morgage, payoff Jaron's college loans, take my family on a world wide adventure, and refurnish my entire house!

5 places I have lived: Longview, Lakeport, Jefferson, Marshall, and Tatum

5 jobs I have had: waitress, nursing assistant, t-shirt maker (lol), outside sales rep, and accountant.

The rules say I have to tag 5 people. I'll have to think about that I even have 5 "friends" that blog? If I know who you are! So get. her. done. I hate when people say that :)

Tree Hugger...

So these days I'm trying to do my "part", which means going a little green. For me of coarse I started with food. This is the easiest way to start the transition from processed to organic eating...which we all know is way way better for you. Not only does it fascinate me, (Corey could care less), but it motivates me to have fully made the change by the time we have children. You better believe I'll be making my own baby food, cloth diapering (at least at home), delaying vaccines and of coarse homeschooling. Ha, only in a perfect world. I envy the mom's I read about in the blogging world b/c they seem to live this way without blinking an eye...I on the other hand need to start small. Going organic in east Texas is not that easy of a task. Remember, we don't have a Whole Foods on every corner. Most of our organic selections are scarce and pretty expensive. We don't have a wide range of products and just b/c it says organic doesn't mean it's 100% organic. Come on people, read the labels! We do have the benefit of having a great local farmer's market as well as a few health food shoppes. So for now I'll leave you with my two favorite health foods...they are delish! Just grab you a bowl (not plastic of coarse) and pour some granola into it. Put a heaping spoonful or more of the yogurt on top. Add a dash of cinnamon and tada! You've made a great, fast, healthy breakfast or snack. See, wasn't that easy?

Have a great weekend, and good luck going green. xoxo

That's what Corey ALWAYS says when he's made off with a great deal. I got this background at The best part guessed it...FREE!!! They have a lot to choose from and seem to update the site pretty often. Although this isn't my new blog "look", I thought I would enjoy it for a bit. Now go! Hurry and get your shabby chic FREE blog background. xoxo

Extreme Makeover Blog Edition!

Hello friends. I'm so so excited that some sweet Jenny from Pink Armchair Designs is going to makeover my blog! I've been wanting to do this for awhile now but thought the necessary expense was well...unnecessary. I'm really excited to see what they come up with. The wait was quoted at 4 weeks so here we go....counting down. (this is truly the most exciting thing going on in my life right now, sweet!) By the way, my sweet friend from high school Jill is a designer. She totally needs to cash in on blog designs. She is incredibly talented and would make a killing. Kudos Jill, xoxo

Honeymoon 2.0

The weather here today is rainy, dreary, and a bit chilly. I long to be somewhere remote, sunny, and tropical. Or really...anywhere but work. ;) I could also use a pina colada...ummmmm. So all I can do for now is wait until June 22, 2009 when my hubby and I leave for our honeymoon 2.0.

I just wanted to let everyone know what I've been doing...getting fat!!!! This toffee is the best in the world. It's called Elaine's Toffee Company. I heard about it in a magazines and then happened to catch it on The Rachael Ray Show, which I never ever watch normally, and just had to try it for myself. It's amazing, truly. Have a great weekend. xoxo ps: they have a website where you can order it, they ship pretty much all over***
