Mary Kay!

Well today I re-signed my contract with Mary Kay! It was expired about a yr ago, and just never got around to re-signing up! I called a local Mary Kay consultant, and she told me I could sign up under her and that she was going to a meeting tonight. She invited me to come with her, and I did.

We had a great time. I got to see all the new products (the Mineral Powder is my FAVORITE thing!) and got to even put them on.

Emma found a frog!

Emma was playing outside in her sand box, and I was watching from the screen door. I needed to take a shower so I asked my mom if she would come over and watch her.

so I got out of my shower, and Emma was already in, playing in the basement. I found some clothes, and left my bathroom, and Emma walked in there ( I assumed to pee) after a few minutes I told her to get out of the bathroom, she said ok, and then when she walked out she had something cupped in her hands.

I figured she stole some of my makeup or something, so I called her over to me, and I reached my hand out and said, GIVE IT TO ME NOW.

so she hesitated, then put something in my hand. it moved, and i SCREAMED!

It was a little frog. She had smuggled it in the house and was playing with it for the past 30 minutes without anyone noticing.

We have LOTS of frogs around here. she cried and told me she wanted to keep it. I told her that I didnt think it was a good Idea. We have nothing to put it in, and I have no idea what they eat

I asked her what she would name it and she said "Mommy"

that was the SWEETEST thing.

I ended up talking her out of it, telling her the frog wanted to be with her family (we just started calling it a "her" ) and that we see them outside ALL time time, and the next time she goes out she can see if shes around, and if she is she can hold her outside.

It worked

Thank goodness. She feels happy now that the frog is with her mommy and daddy.

it was so funny becuase when we let the frog go, (i put the frog were we ALWAYS find them) Emma said, "Bye mommy! Go get your mommy and daddy!"


We just got back from chuck e cheese!

We had a great time, we took only 2 pictures (which were just headshots) because unfortunately my camera's batteries went dead

We had alot of fun!

We had them tonight!!!

My favorite! <3
Image and video hosting by TinyPic

I usually make a dipping sauce for them (when i dont want plain ranch) I add alittle bit of cajun pepper or some sort of red pepper powder to the ranch making it alittle spicy.

here is the fried green tomato recipe:

Fried Green Tomatoes
3-4 green tomatoes
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup corn meal
1/2 tsp salt & pepper
vegetable oil
Mix together flour, cornmeal, salt & pepper. Add enough milk to create a thick batter. Heat 2 inches of oil in a large skillet. Batter each tomato slice, and wipe off excess. Carefully place in hot oil, browning on both sides. (may or may not need turning, depending on the amount of oil) To cool, drain in a colander to keep tomatoes from becoming soggy. Salt to taste.

My laptop!

 I am getting my laptop here soon!
I am so extremely excited about it because when we go outside, I have been using my moms, and now I will have my own!

I was going to get black... but I had to do some changes to my order yesterday and right before I hung up I was like, "Um, can I change it? I want the purple one!"

So anyways, it ships no later than the August 1st, So I should have it by the 5th or 6th!

I cant wait!!

Marilyn Monroe Movie

I love old movies. One of my favorite older movies from Marilyn Monroe Is the Seven Year Itch starring her and Tom Ewell. Fantastic.


The Cake we made!

So, I wanted to make a really nice cake, but EVERYTHING went wrong.
I went to make the buttercream icing, and after making it it was SOUPY. so, I thought maybe I did something wrong, and I made it a second time. still soupy.. then I figured out why.. its because my house is SO HOT.

I couldn't find ANY of my decorating tips , so I just started to ice it, thinking i would do the decorating later. well... little miss rose comes upstairs and wants to help

so i let her put the icing on the top, and dump sprinkles all over it.

so needless to say this cake is the ugliest cake i have ever made, but Emma had fun!

here it is:

My guilty pleasure

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
My Favorite Champagne- Dom PĂ©rignon yr 1990 or 1996 of course!

I plan on having some on my 23rd birthday! I have only had it twice. Once at a funeral, and the second on Father's day with Edel. We were in Chicago, in a fancy hotel, and gotten back from the Cheescake Factory with John and Amanda. We were all sitting there looking out at the view of the lake, when room service came up and brought us the wine, and we were all surprised that Edel paid that much for it. haha

guilty pleasure definitely. Hopefully on my 23rd I can get some change together and buy a 400 dollar bottle of champagne. HA!
