I really, really want this top and I don't know why. I want to wear it with dark skinny jeans. I vowed that I would never ever ever wear a pair of skinny jeans but this top might just make me break my vow. Except that I'm not going to be actually owning the top therefore I will not need a pair of skinny jeans to go with it.
This thing looks like you are assisting with target practice.
I remember the first time I realized that I was an adult or at least heading that way. I was at Nana's house on South P and someone was watching a basketball game in the living room. It was probably Joshua or Daddy. They always watch the most boring things on the television.
Back to fashion.
I am wondering about this little piece. Exactly what kind of outfit would this accessory compliment?
This is what I want to wear to the banquet next year when we go to DC. The problem is that that is the only place that I could wear it and no one needs a dress that they can wear only once. And the problem is also that it is cha-ching!
I really like this trench coat as well although I would not be wearing it as a dress. Who thought that was an appealing picture?
I will be traveling with my children to TN tomorrow so I ask for your prayers of safety.
I can't think of my other thoughts so I guess I will close with this:
Goodnight Dr. Pepper, where ever you are.

My sister just called to tell me that she read my blog and that I have no pride. I wonder why she thinks that? :)
I have the comments set to where I have to approve them first. That way no one can cheat and copy someone else's answers. First person to correctly answer all the questions wins the gift card. Good Luck!!

There it is everyone! The contest will end Friday night at 8pm. August 14, 2009. I will reveal the winner first thing Monday morning. It would be sooner but as I mentioned before, I won't have access to a computer because I will be at the Rich Mountain Association.
There might be a surprise giveaway to a random participant so enter even if the time is about up.

The winner will receive a $10 gift card to Starbucks. I really wanted the $20 dollar gift card to Target but as often as I search things that would still take me forever.
So Starbucks it is.
I didn't want to make it too easy for you and I always love when The Pioneer Woman has The Smartypants Quizzes so I think I am going to do something similar to that. It will take me a while to come up with all the questions so check back later in the day. See you then!

I have a question. I just spellchecked that last paragraph. It is telling me that incase should be
in case. Which is correct? I always thought there was no space but I usually assume The Computer to be smarter than me when it comes to spelling. Unless it tries to tell me that Ceridwen is spelled wrong. (Which it always does.) When that is the case I just laugh in its face and ignore its bright yellow highlight.
We are headed to the Rich Mountain Association Thursday. Jason cannot go because of lots and lots of work. I am really excited because I haven't been there since either the day Lyndol and Alisa got married or the day that I backed into Adam's red car. I can't remember which event took place first but I do know that I went to Hot Springs on both occasions and one of them was my last visit.
Guess what? My van is almost done!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I feel like I have been in a blogging slump for so long now. Probably since May 12th. That car being gone has sucked the life out of me. Not really of course, but I do think I shall give her a big ol' hug the next time that I see her.
The two oldest girls are back on my bed watching Elmo's Potty Time. Let me rephrase that.
I am trying to decide what curriculum to start using this September with Elaina and Claire. We are a part of the homeschool co-op now and I feel like it is time for Elaina to get a feel of what school is all about. Claire is just tagging along for the ride. I think I have decided on My Father's World. I still want to check out a few other options before I make my final decision. Any suggestions are completely welcome. QS, what did you start out with? Your children seem excessively bright in the areas that I am weak and I really want the girls to get a well rounded education.
Eily has a personality now. It's a little scary. She seems very opinionated and stubborn. But I still love her. Today we were playing a kissing game and her mouth made the cutest shapes while trying to kiss several times in a row very fast.
Jason accepted a position as an adjunct professor at the college. He is very excited and so far his work seems ok with working around the class time. He is going to be teaching a 2-D Design class to highschool students who are earning college credit.
I have started selling Pampered Chef products. I love it and have had such a good time finding my "show groove." I have my 4th show tonight and for the first time I am not nervous. I feel a tad bit confident.

The other day I decided I would take the girls on their first mudwalk. We don't have the luxury of having a mostly private yard so there was no stripping and no hosing and no playing in our underwear until we were dry.
We just walked out to the small ditch in the front yard and the girls had fun running in the mud. I finally had to get down with them and show them how to get their hands dirty and make awesome mud cakes and pies. Elaina LOVED it. Claire liked it. Eily hated it.
