And it's not like anyone will come over and see the decorations because we will be working so much. Last year I took the Christmas Tree down on Christmas day. yes - the same day. The only ones who might enjoy the tree is the dog who can lift his leg on it and the presents and the cat who tries to grab at the ornaments at the bottom. So as of now - I am going to say no tree this year.

I received this beautiful frame and gift card from Merry the gift fairy!
It totally made my day!
On to another note, Saturday I started Weight Watchers. I paid for 11 weeks so I couldn'y use having no money as an excuse for not going to meetings. I did find out that Weight Watchers is changing their program on Dec.4 so I will be getting all new materials then and relearning how to use the system. I plan on documenting my successes and challenges with WW every saturday aftet the meeting. I do need suggestions for easy recipes. any suggestions?

Here's how it works- go to Ebates, click on type of product you are buying or search for a store. Let's say you want to purchase something from Target. Go to search and type in Target. Ebates will bring up all of Target's special coupons and when you purchase items you get a certain percentage of cash back! WHO DOESN'T WANT CASH BACK? The rebate will go to your ebates account and then Ebates will deposit the cash into your paypal account on a certain day. That is it! It is too easy! I purchased a flight by going to ebates and then clicking on orbitz and purchasing a ticket. Ebates has tons of websites that offer cash back and some free shipping. Check it out!

Isn't it darling? If you are interested in purchasing a stork basket, please send me a message at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get back to you about a price. You can pick an empty basket or I can do some shopping for you and fill it like I did here.

While I was on a short vacation, Martini went for a doggie vacation to Grandma's house. She said he was a little helper by pulling out all of the toys from the toy basket and pulling out all the garbage of the bathroom cans. He is just like a kid.

So now I am back home and we have been doing a Sopranos marathon. We started at season 1 episode 1 and are almost finished with season 2. I report back to Summer school on Thursday. I am not ready to go back already.
I have been going to a free running clinic on Tuesday nights to get back into running again. I had a great workout and ran and walked about 2 and a half miles today. By the end my face matched hot pink shorts. It is extremely hot and humid here in Memphis. Let's hope I can walk tomorrow!

So I am supposed to tell you 7 things about myself that you might not now already.
1. I love being creative and starting new projects - embroidery, sewing,...etc except I never find time to complete those projects. :(
2. I think I truly bleed orange. Tennessee is my alma mater - received my bachelor's degree and master's degree there. My eyes are glued to the tv when there is a UT football or basketball game on. I even sing rocky top during the game when my boys are struggling thinking that they will hear me thru the tv.
3.I am fluent in sign language due to my job - a teacher of the deaf.
4. I work hard for my money - seriously! 1 fulltime job and like 4 part time gigs.
5. I am addicted to my tivo. One of the best purchases I ever made!
6. I don't wear makeup to my job (teaching). My hands are so active and when I get frustrated I tend to rub at my face and all the makeup would streak or come off so I just go with lipstick.
7. My favorite food of all time is chocolate chip pancackes. It is just heaven to me but I limit myself to it maybe once a year.
I tag everyone to do this!

Getting ready for tomorrow at Memphis in May's World Championship Barbeque Cooking Contest! It is so much fun! You should see some of the booths that the teams build. Some are two story that all over look the Mississippi River. It is quite fun! I will definitely get pics this year up on the site.
Well it is time for bed, but be sure to check out my blog this weekend for a special giveaway in honor of my new look!

Well I have approximately 15 more school days until the end of the year and I am thrilled! I will then jump on a plane and fly to Vegas with my mom. We have already gotten tickets for -
THE LION KING!
I am so excited! I love Las Vegas! This is my third time and I even got married and had my honeymoon there. I love the cirque shows! I have seen KA, LOVE, Zumanity, Cirque Believe by Criss Angel, and Barry Manilow.
I may not be going with a lot of money to shop but that is okay. I just love being in the Vegas atmosphere!

Anyway I just downloaded Kindle on my blackberry for free last week! Who needs to spend the money on a real kindle? I just put it on my phone and just finished my first free book - Daring Chloe - which I did enjoy! I realized that the free books change so I need to check every week to see what is free! Anyone recommend any good books I can try?

I have read a few books over this time which I have really enjoyed.It is just so hard to find an hour or two for myself to sit down and read.
Anyway I have a dilemma. Valentine's Day, my husband's birthday, and our 1st wedding anniversary is coming up soon and is all within one month. I need some ideas on what to get him - especially for the anniversary. Any suggestions?
